If players are meant to identify with Link and project themselves onto the character, a female Link should have always been an option for obvious reasons. I hope this happens in future Zelda titles because it might force Nintendo is make Link more of a blank slate again. Nintendo has been giving Link his own personality and he's reacting to the world and other characters beyond player input which is fine if that's what they want to do, but it also contradicts the original point of Link. Either go all-in with characterization (which includes improving the story, dialog etc.), or reel it back; make it more about the adventure and less cinematic.

Duck Hunt Dog will be the lamest addition to the series in SSB history, if true.
Not even close.
Besides the returning characters, it's the one thing about the leak I want to be true.
What was the dog image originally used for?
Fan art, maybe?


(Supposed source pic)

Also, apparently, Mr. Game and Watch's character portrait overlaps Wario's. I take no credit for discovering these since I didn't. They were just some things I came across while trying to see if there was any credence to the leaks.

I'm still going with these being fake though I've been very wrong before. I kind of want it to be wrong too. Cutting Ice Climbers (or relegating them to DLC)? Bowser Jr. existing? Ugh.

The original image looks horribly disorganized. Characters have been grouped by series in previous games in the series. Also, it looks like Dark Pit is just Pit mirrored (and has his hair colored black). Not sure I buy Dr. Mario returning as an entire character slot (seems perfect as a costume). On a related note, the entire top row being filled by Mario characters would be ridiculous. Add Bowser Jr. and not Dixie Kong? Ew.

On a personal note, I'd also rather see Medusa than the Duck Hunt Dog though I'm curious to see how a dog that only picked up ducks and laughed at you could be a playable character. I don't doubt it can be done considering some of the other choices in the past. I almost want that to be true just see it.

I finally opened Darksiders 2. Meh...

I was surprised there were no updates, mandatory or otherwise. I have no idea if that's because THQ is no more and the updates were yanked or if there never were any to begin with. I'll look it up, but I'm already typing this.

I'm going to give it more time. So far, it's pretty boring. I don't really care for Death. I liked War in the original more, and I would have preferred Fury over another overly-muscular dude. Then again, I have a feeling Fury would have just been scantily clad and heavy-chested and frankly, these kinds of character design cliches are tiresome. The voice acting and narration are way too over-dramatic. I feel like Vigil Games thought their story was grander than it actually is. And they cheat right in the beginning. After the first boss, Death is whisked away to a world than isn't Heaven, Hell, or Earth. What the fuc...

Still, I paid $10 for this game. I'm nitpicking so far. Ultimately, even if I don't finish it, I won't regret picking it up.

I don't think I should be proud for knowing these things.
No, be proud. I was too lazy to look it up and I didn't even notice Samus was wearing a different top.

I never really liked the Zero Suit and prefer the vest and shorts. She's a video game character so showing more skin has nothing to do with it. I always found the Zero Suit to not make sense. It's like Nintendo decided that Samus showing her midriff was too risqué so they throw a skin-tight unitard on her. Why is that a better choice?

To be fair, I didn't buy Assassin's Creed on PS3 either.

Are some people really that upset by this?
Are you new? This is the Internet. People get upset over everything. Someone somewhere is upset that I used vowels in this post.

We should trash his thread while he is gone.
What would that accomplish? This thread is already trash.

Well, that explains why I never saw that in Zero Mission. Still, that's Samus' outfit in the two previous mainline games so it's weird that Sakurai credits Zero Mission.

The Miiverse post says this costume is from Zero Mission. I haven't played Zero Mission in like a decade, but I thought the Zero Suit was from Zero Mission. Not that's it especially matters, I don't remember this outfit in the game. This looks like the outfit Samus wears in the 100% ending in Super Metroid (and a couple of the endings in Fusion, or the death animation in either game). In any case, this reminds me of Super Metroid more so it's the one I'm going to use.

General Chat / Re: All Things Netflix! Now With Original Programming!

Before I got a Smart TV, I mainly used my PS3 for Netflix unless the Wii U was what I used last then I'd normally be too lazy to switch. Also, my old TV was a pain in the ass when it came to switching HDMI devices; it was slow and the device had to powered on in order to switch. Additionally, I preferred using Netflix on PS3 because using it on Wii U needlessly killed the GamePad battery (even if I turned the screen off) and when watching TV shows, the Wii U app didn't automatically go to the next episode. I haven't used Netflix on Wii U in a while so they might have updated it.

The Netflix app on my new LG Smart TV works almost identically to the PS3 app so there's no need to turn on a separate device. I was vehemently against Smart TVs in the past, but I did a lot of research and honestly, it works really well. It's quick and LG did an amazing job of converting webOS from smartphones to television.

This post was brought to you by our partners at LG. "Life's good."

(I never used Max. My friend showed it too me once. It didn't seem worth the trouble. I just scroll until I find something that looks interesting.)

I agree though this is one of the few times I actually prefer the North American cover art.

The title of this thread is weird. Why are two different letters starred out? Also, why would you need to star out any letter in "you?" It isn't an expletive.

1/10, terrible seller. Would not buy from again.

Yeah, it looks quite nice.

I wish I could justify buying one. I guess I'll just have to deal with my lame, boring regular 3DS XL.

Darksiders 2 on Wii U for $20, also has $10 in credit at Play N Trade.

I thought the first one was okay, played it on PS3. It started strong then fizzled toward the middle and end. I wanted to get the Wii U version because it comes with the DLC packs. I wasn't sure if there was a version on PS3 that came with the extra content so I waited until I could get the Wii U version at a low price. I might not even get to it, but the value is nice.

Why are we still talking about TJ Spyke? He's been gone for ages. Make like Adele Dazeem and let it go.

At least the price is right.

I don't recall seeing a good-Cia render, but I won't be surprised when Cia predictably reverts from her evil-sexy witch form at the end and wears something more modest. There seems to be a really weird and lazy trend in anime and video games where female characters shed clothes when they get possessed or corrupted. "I'm evil now! Tits! Literally."

I thought Cia's special was growing breasts.

I hope that isn't the complete list of playable characters only because I hope they dig deeper. It's be nice to see Veran, Onox, and Vaati in there.

Ah, I wonder if I knew that and forgot about it. Are you a fan, or is it more just an "okay" game for you?
I really liked Earthbound, but I didn't finish it. I think I was pretty close to the end. I'm not sure why I stopped playing it. Now that I have the download, I should pick it back up again.

I have a (thus far) working Earthbound cartridge as well. It won't always work so this was as good a time as any to download the game due to the cost of $0.

I've used it. Most recently, literally a minute ago. I don't like playing on the GamePad when I could be looking at a TV.

That isn't split screen multiplayer. That's separate screen multiplayer. I've seen it before. I don't really like it, especially as the only option.

You're right about the online co-op. I misread that. I don't really understand why there would be online multiplayer without a co-op campaign. That's the entire point of the game. I guess a versus mode might be fun (if that makes it in), but it sure would have been nice if the campaign had online co-op.
