Yeah, Gordos are damn evil, the only thing preventing them from being completely broken is that your opponent can knock them back.

*coughPichucough*

But in all seriousness, the main issue is that we have three unique fire emblem characters (Ike, Robin and Corrin) and Marth, Girl Marth and Red Marth. Honestly if we never got Lucina or the return of Roy there probably wouldn't have been any issue but instead its a relatively B/C-tier Nintendo franchise that only VERY recently got any proper US attention with an equal amount of reps as Pokemon, one more than Zelda, and one short of Mario.

Honestly with how popular Kirby is (and how it and Kid Icarus are Sakurai's babies) i'm really surprised we didn't get like Bandanna Waddle Dee or something.
In all fairness, they did begin "decloning" Roy so that he is more in the same vein as Falco/Ganondorf, and not the straight copy (with maybe one different move) that Lucina/Dark Pit/Dr. Mario are.  And let's not kid ourselves: Roy was included because he is a Melee veteran, not because he is AT ALL relevant to the current state of the Fire Emblem franchise.  He isn't.

Also, while I loath the "character slot" logic for reasons nobody wants to hear me rant about, your math is off: Mario has at least 8 character slots (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Rosalina, Jr., Dr.).  9 if you count Wario, and the fact that his WarioWare skin is his primary one is the full and sole reason why anyone wouldn't.

Yoshi's both divorced from the Mario set in terms of Icon and trophies.
That's also why I didn't count Wario.

I don't think that means much since Yoshi is still in Mario games as a prominent gameplay mechanic and most Yoshi games feature Baby Mario anyway.  Only way you can count Wario is if you consider the Mario Party games and other spin offs, along with Donkey Kong in some games but not Diddy Kong.

EDIT: Scratch that, Diddy is apparently a boss in Mario Party 9 of all things so if you want to stretch it you can count Diddy along with Wario and DK.

Yoshi does NOT have his own franchise, he has spinoffs that just happen to be more successful than either Luigi or Peach.  His mechanics, supporting cast, and enemies are all derived from Mario.  For God's sake, his final boss is always Bowser; it doesn't get more "Mario series" than that.

DK will always be tied to Mario through origin (and in turn spinoffs/party games), but he actually did build his own unique franchise.

Wario is debatable.  The very definition of his character is that he is the anti-Mario, so despite Nintendo's best efforts, you can't really separate them.  Even if the variety of games built around him would have otherwise justified it.

Yeah I doubt we'll see another Super Princess Peach anytime soon.

So, this is probably old news, but since I couldn't find any mention of it on the boards....

Harmony of Heroes

It's a Smash-themed album from the same OCRemix team that did the Metroid: Harmony of a Hunter albums. I absolutely LOVE the entire thing (all 101 songs!).

Oh, and the "Final Smash" expansion was released recently. Covers stuff from Wii U/3DS.  The Punch-Out! cover ("Your Face is History", I think.) is so 80's it's awesome.

I've been playing Corrin and Bayonetta since last night and these are my thoughts.

First off, thanks [tornado fang]ing Sakurai. Their voices are super compressed. They sound like they're in an early PS1 game. I'm serious, it's REALLY bad. Even with music cranked up it's super noticeable.

Now anyways, Bayonetta plays like a weird ZSS/Ryu hybrid. She's very combo heavy and her punish game is really great. I like playing her. She's a bit hard to pick up though and I still need a LOT of practice before I can play her competently.

Corrin, granted, despite having a lot of differences, at her (I play femcorrin, male robin still based tho) base, she's Marth Clone #4 which really sours my experiences with her. She's also Cloud-tier broken. She's the anti-Cloud, looks like. Playing her is boring and I expect fighting her is infuriating. I will give her this though, she has a lot of fun techniques to her.

I disagree about Corrin. There's far more to differentiate them from Marth, and I hesitate to call them broken. Given they do have quite a few great tools; their projectile is amazing, there's a lot of utility in b air, their throws seem really good. Otherwise, I was feeling a bit meh. It's really interesting that their sword does damage as you charge forward smash. It wrecks the cpu, but humans can probably DI out of that.

Bayo has to be a top tier. All the stuff she can do is bananas. I already love meteor smashing people with her down smash. Though I can't figure out how to make After Burner Kick aim downward.

They both have stall then fall down airs. Get ready to see spammers flock to them.

Also, the music selection from the Bayonetta games is stellar. I am [tornado fang]ing hype that the After Burner mix is in.

Today Corrin made me ragequit for the first time since I started Smash while I was at campus.

I officially regret buying this game.

I don't regret buying the game but I only regret not having 3DS XL as my hands are too big for my 3DS. I also wish that I also had a Wii U. I really wish that I had some more money to get one.

I finally got the last hat I needed on 3DS. The Mini Top Hat had eluded me for too long. It finally came from my Pikachu amiibo.

I think if you survived Diddy back in the day, you can deal with Corrin.

Spent all day playing yesterday and I don't have as much of a problem though. I'm starting to get burned on Smash though.
