I totally wish this was possible with the original Smash Bros. I'm that guy in my group of friends, and every time I've come across that guy from other groups so far I've beaten the hell out of them. I'm nowhere near as good at Melee, but that might be in part because I've hardly played it.

It's great about the online play, but, like I expected, there are small but annoying restrictions, like in every Nintendo game that's online. The chat is extremely limited, and you can't really interact with people you don't know. Not bad, and it's cool if you don't have any friends over you can play someone online anytime you want. The game looks amazing, and it has awesome levels. Animal Crossing theme is wicked sick, and the Warioware theme is also incredible. I'm really excited for this game and it looks like Nintendo really put their best into it.

However, it annoys me that Wario has a farting move. Really immature and lame. Ah, well...

Why? They always have clones (Luigi counts). Why would they make new ones? It'd be disappointing to get less playable characters, regardless of whether they're all different or not.

Yeah, that's like saying Mewtwo is a clone of Ness. The only clones I can recall are Dr. Mario, Pichu, Gannondorf, Falco, Young Link, and Roy.

It would be awesome if they all came back (except maybe Pichu and Young Link), but with drastically different movesets.

In my magazine it says that many characters will have different movesets than before. Also, I SERIOUSLY wish the game has Golden Sun characters. Did you guys know the composer for the Golden Sun games is composing for this game too? I love that, because the Golden Sun series has my favorite music in any game ever.

Unfortunetly, I don't think Golden Sun is popular enough. What a shame.

Actually, Earthbound was really popular among RPG fans. I'm not sure how much that carried over to the general public though.

Bomberman
That would be neat, but I'm still surprised that they're bringing third party characters into the series at all. I know Solid Snake was confirmed and there's been rumors of Viewtiful Joe and a few others, but I'm not expecting many. Viewtiful Joe I think would actually fit really well, but Snake feels a little out of place.

Wikipedia says they changed Pikachu...I hope it wasn't too much because he's always been my character of choice in the series.

0r4ng3
09-26-2007, 02:39 PM
They changed Pikachu? Damn, and I just started getting good at using him, too.

Bomberman would be an awesome character (as I've been saying for about 8 years), but now I think he'd make a better assist trophy.

He's Mario with 5 notable changes.

0r4ng3
09-27-2007, 10:52 AM
More than 5.

- Fireballs are green and travel at a straight line.
- Uppercut goes straight up, and has different damage properties.
- His tornado goes sideways, instead of hovering up.
- He has a headbutt instead of a cape.
- He has much less running traction than Mario
- His running attack is a flurry of punches instead of a sliding kick.
- Left/right smash attack is a chop instead of a fire palm.
- In his third combo attack, he hip thrusts instead of kicks.
- His forward air attack is a chop instead of a downward punch.

And those are off the top of my head*. Luigi's very different than Mario. At least enough to not be considered a clone.


*goddamn I play this game too much

BREAK
09-27-2007, 11:00 AM
My favorite difference is in the voices.

Mario getting knocked off the screen: "WAAAAAaaaaaa..."
Luigi getting knocked off: "HA-HA-HA-HA-ha-ha-ha..."

Does he have a higher jump than Mario too? That's like the biggest concession they've ever given him, it seems remiss not to let him have it.

+ taunt

You can make Mario's go sideways as well.

- He has much less running traction than Mario
Like that really makes a difference.

- Left/right smash attack is a chop instead of a fire palm.
More of a stab than a chop. But same thing pretty much as an attack.

- In his third combo attack, he hip thrusts instead of kicks.
Still pretty much the same thing.


You're right though. He does have enough changes.

Considering the fact that you have to knock your opponent off-screen or off-stage in order to defeat them, this makes all the difference in the world.

Never did for me since you can do a short-hop and air-dodge diagonally most effectively with Luigi (attack backwards whilst sliding)

I have a feeling that they're gonna change Ness up a bit, and Lucas is going to play kind of like Ness from the first two games. I haven't played Earthbound, but I heard that Ness doesn't even have most of his powers in the Super Smash Bros games.

Like that really makes a difference.

Let me tackle these in reverse order.
Are you retarded? Luigi's lack of traction makes him fairly unique from all the other characters in the game. He has by far the easiest and farthest wave dash (Samus is probably second) and you can just use his sliding to add a lot of dynamic to your fighting style.
This spills over into his tornado. You can move across a good portion of most levels with his tornado because he slides so far. You can't do that with Mario or Dr. Mario.
In general, Luigi plays WAY differently than Mario does. His up+B is not a recovery move 90% of the time; you have to do a series of side+B's to get back and then maybe up+B to grab the ledge if you're too low.

ruroken

Smash Bros. was originally meant to be all-Nintendo. Now they have bad voice acting... ='(

edit: of course they're done well. HAL doesn't fuck around with Smash Bros. like they do with every other game they've ever made. They make sure to make it as balanced as possible since the first one (which I don't think Kirby was any stronger than in Melee, but whatever). Lastly, if Sonic's jump does damage; wtf gay. If not; wtf. If he has his gay homing attack; wtf why?

Pikachu is pretty much broken in the first game. This was fixed pretty well in the second game. Also, Kirby got nerfed really hard in Melee, to the point where in my opinion he's a pretty worthless character. He was amazing in 64.

One of my friends is actually pretty good with Jigglypuff. Her down and B attack is fucking deadly if you get good with it.

If you're playing against more than one person, you're pretty fucked when you use that move ;o
Regardless, Jiggy's aerial control is what makes her a very interesting character. You can dodge a lot just using directional control and then counter with her attacks which are generally fairly strong.

0r4ng3
10-11-2007, 09:31 AM
I think Ness is the most depowered in Melee. He was pretty much a god in the original, and now he's just okay. Except when I use him. Then he's awesome.

Also, did anyone else see Sonic's attacks? I think it's pretty cool how the controls are similar to the original Sega Genesis games.

Everyone complains about different characters being broken in the original. I'm able to pwn everyone with Pikachu, even other pikachus. I'm even able to pwn pikachus pretty consistently as my less good characters like Ness and Captain Falcon and Kirby.
I've actually somewhat recently gotten to the point on Melee where when I use Pikachu I'm about tied with the best person among my group of friends. I'm still not as good as I am at the original though.

10-11-2007, 02:01 PM
There is a time and effect difference in the original game for N64 and Melee. In the original, the characters move slower, attacks aren't as quick to act, and they do more power and damage. In Melee, the chacters are more agile; they move at a much quicker past, and their attacks aren't as brutal, they are kinda those quick hits. So that is the reason why Ness seems more powered down, as do all the characters in my opinion.

ruroken
10-11-2007, 03:08 PM
I remember there being lag in the N64 one. I kinda liked that. It made the fighting more cinematic as well as making it easier to follow the chaos.

Actually, there are specific examples of how Ness was depowered. His PK fire doesn't go as far, his PK thunder doesn't launch him as far, his air+down+A attack is much slower, and his yo-yo isn't nearly as powerful.

nieh
10-11-2007, 04:22 PM
Plus his regular B attack was changed from the PK fire to that piece of shit thing that I've never actually hit anybody with because it's so fucking slow (I know you can still do PK Fire with over and B). Those minor tweaks really messed me up with some characters. Even Pikachu with his new over + B thing. There were times in the original where I'd be flying through the air, holding diagnally down and to one side, and would push B and do the lightning bolt thing without having it strike myself. Now when I try doing that, it does the over and B thing which seriously screws up my plans.

PK Flash? It's devastating if you really know how to use it.

And I know what you mean with Pikachu. Many a time I've wanted to do a diagonal Quick Attack and I end up doing a Skull Bash.

10-11-2007, 04:36 PM
Yeah, that happens all the time to me too and it's quite frustrating. What's the PK Flash thing do exactly? I haven't played as Ness too many times on Melee.

I should also point out that I had no idea wave dashes even existed until sKratch mentioned them the other day.

0r4ng3
10-11-2007, 04:40 PM
Basically, you hold the B button, and after a while, you get a huge green explosion that'll instantly kill most of the time. You can even control its direction a little bit, which I didn't even know until about 2 months ago.

Also, I just read somewhere that Brawl was delayed until February 10.

nieh
10-11-2007, 04:44 PM
How big is the explosion? And is it something where you can charge it and stop and pick up where you left off like with Samus's gun or DK's punch?

what the fucking fuck? tell me, how in the HELL are you going to SMASH on the DS? Because, you know, that happens to be why they call it SMASH BROS. And no, the touch screen would be fucking awkward. The d-pad won't work either because there has to be varying speeds for moving easily accessed and double-tapping would be lame.

Also, there would only be around 10 characters to use. Smash Bros. wouldn't work on the DS.

Sham
10-30-2007, 01:03 PM

Not necessarily. Super Smash Bros. Brawl would obviously be better by incredulous miles, because of the higher technology of the Wii and overall control. Even if the one for DS wasn't bad, it would still pale in comparison and be made worse in our eyes. It would most likely cost around the same as Brawl, so I really don't see a Super Smash Bros. game for DS going anywhere.

I have always had handhelds, but at the same time I always thought they were pretty weak. Many games are remakes of older consle games, and there are also many shitty, throw-away games. The rest are just weird games that have absolutely no depth. The rare few that are awesome manage to exceed all my expectations and make it worthwhile. Golden Sun I and II, Fire Emblem, Phoenix Wright are all great handheld games. People say handhelds have advantages by being able to take them anywhere, but I find most handheld games to lost their spark pretty quickly in one sitting, I find it hard to play for long periods of time.

It doesn't have to be the EXACT same thing as the console version to work. I'm sure that Nintendo could figure something out. It's not that hard.

I never said it had to be the same. No matter what they do, it would still pale in comparison. Remember Mario Party Advanced? No? Okay.

Um, riggghhht... then why don't you do it yourself? Seeing as I eliminated the two possible ways already. And it does have to be the same thing (pretty much). Nobody wants to play a Smash Bros. that doesn't feel like Smash Bros. Not only that, but the immense character selection of Melee and Brawl would make a DS version disappointing for people who's favorite character were missing. It'd be pretty much a port of the N64 Smash Bros. They would need a lot of time to fix that, and it would STILL feel like shit. Smash Bros. was made for the control stick. If they made one for the DS, then all newfags could use smashes. What would be worse is if they could charge it as well. Do you really, truly believe that a game for the DS with the name "Smash Bros." would be great regardless of awkward controls and the lack of Smash Bros. feel overall?
Not to mention how HAL has been doing everything they can to make it a single-player experience as well. There's no room on the DS for that shit. I mean, sure, it'd be cool to have a Smash Bros. on the DS if it worked, but it won't. Seriously. If its so easy, (mock-)design it yourself whilst keeping in mind the amount of data the DS can hold. Which is somewhere between late SNES and mid-N64. Not including Ocarina of Time.

I'm not saying that I could do it. I'm saying that the company that, y'know, MADE the game for the Gamecube could also make it for the DS. I'm no game programmer, but I can imagine that it's possible.

what the fucking fuck? tell me, how in the HELL are you going to SMASH on the DS? Because, you know, that happens to be why they call it SMASH BROS. And no, the touch screen would be fucking awkward. The d-pad won't work either because there has to be varying speeds for moving easily accessed and double-tapping would be lame.

Also, there would only be around 10 characters to use. Smash Bros. wouldn't work on the DS.

um, maybe they just wouldn't have varying speeds? it's not a required trait. they could definitely have more than ten characters as well, that doesn't take up much memory and those ds cards can hold two gigs. they could basically use the graphics like from the new super mario bros.

Wait, what's wrong with double-tapping? It would take a little getting used to but it would be fine.

Not what I meant. I meant that if it isn't so hard, then you could at least think of a way for the controls to work. I'm saying you could program it.

um, maybe they just wouldn't have varying speeds? it's not a required trait. they could definitely have more than ten characters as well, that doesn't take up much memory and those ds cards can hold two gigs. they could basically use the graphics like from the new super mario bros.
Then it'd just be a 2D blantant rip-off of Ultimate Stars... that I would approve of. Well, it'd be better because the stages would all be unique and the whole page bullshit would be gone. That would be sweet. But still, control-scheme really is the biggest issue...

Wait, what's wrong with double-tapping? It would take a little getting used to but it would be fine.
It's not that there's anything wrong with it. It's that it would be too easy and wouldn't really be "smashing"...

What is "smashing"?

What is a "Smash Bros. feel"?

"smashing" is when you slam the control stick and press the A button, thus performing a smash move. This form of attacking is the very reason they named it "Smash Bros."

how do you not know this? :confused:

Really? Then what do you like so much about Ultimate Stars? The anime characters? It is fucking sweeeet to be able to use Kenshin Himura.

What the fuck is up with Luffy's afro? Did Eiichiro Oda make that his "super saiyan" or something?

I'm sad to say we got owned:

"Due to delays in the completion of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, weíve had to change the release date of the game to Sunday, March 9th.

I deeply apologize to the people who have looked forward to playing the game for so long and ask that you hold on just a little longer. Thank you for your patience."
