HAS THE ENTIRE WORLD FORGOTTEN ABOUT BIRDO?!?!?!?!?

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Spoof SF?

Holy god SB. I mean you've said some nonsense in the past, but criminy.


I won't debate the nonsense bit, but...

Street Fighter Alpha 3 intro, released 1995

SSB64 Intro, released 1999



You'd be pretty hard pressed to convince me that SSB's intro isn't a bit of a send-up of SF and other fighting games with overly-dramatic intros.

The irony is that it wasn't intended to be a very serious project, but wound up being bigger than most other fighting games.

Holy crap.  Because the intros use some identical setups, it's now a spoof?

I can concede the intros.  I can't concede that it's a spoof of SF because of that though.

Also, Kairon - Birdo isn't a girl, if that is what you are asking/referring to.
I must find a way to use "burninate" more in my daily speech.

The original Super Smash Bros intro kind of reminds me more of 80s anime, right down to the cheesy, distinctly Japanese music.

Can't forget the bowling pin sound effects either. Smash has come such a long way.

I mention SF because it was the most popular fighting game to come before it, but Nintendo intros are typically very modest, hence why I believe the SSB intro WAS meant to be a spoof of previous fighting games.

The actual GAMEPLAY, not so much, but the intro at least, definitely.

Tonight's update is Pit. Goddamn, Pit is bringing sexy back.

Quote

The arrows Pit's bow unleashes shoot out like beams of light. Players can control the curves of their trajectories.

That seems to suggest that he fires his arrows faster than Link. Also, as plainly stated, the player can curve their path like Zelda's Din's Fire. Nice.

Man, I'm really loving these weekday updates. If they can really keep these up until release it will be fantastic.

This thread is just too damn long. Does anybody want to post a new megathread? By megathread, I mean keep the first post updated with general info and links to important posts further along the thread for the benefit of people that don't want to slog through 728932 posts of "hur hur megaman."

Why don't we just nix this thread and create two threads. One for the updates and one for pipe dreaming about what 3rd party characters are gonna be in the game?
TVman is dead. I killed him and took his posts.

Consider it done!

(edit: I know I've come down pretty harshly on killing old megathreads in the past - but, in this particular case, I agree with SUPER. I came in here looking for the latest news, only to find pages of posts about Street Fighter and other stuff that I didn't want to sift through.)

Birdo is no longer a Transvestite.  I'll find it when I have some more time but if memory serves Nintendo has actually changed it to being a girl again.
I sort of hope they include as sort of a bonus SSB and SSBM's intros redone with the new models.

Edit:

Also if Megaman is in I want them to use the TV Megaman and somehow sneak the intro or just the song in.

If he were in the game, he'd either teleport in or fly in on the dog. Hur, hur.

Teleporting in would be awesome, you have to admit.

I figure he'd do it MegaMan X style, with the laser.
