A new batch of screenshots for Super Smash Bros. has been made available. The screenshots include both 3DS and Wii U versions, and you can view them below.
You guys know what I’m talking about.
Random question, but who is your avatar?
Zelda in her Skyward Sword incarnation, which she didn’t wear glasses back then.
I’m all for a real Princess Zelda that has glasses.
… I had to hunt down that picture and save it to my phone as a locked screen wallpaper.
… she’s drop dead beautiful.
I’ll second this. Skyward sword Zelda is easily her best character design. And I love glasses girls.
Lil’ Mac and Rosalina, two of my prospective mains and they’re both doing a lot of damage in these screenshots. This makes me a happy man.
Mac beating Samus, again? Feminists incoming!
What makes it even better is that it’s the first picture and slightly larger than the rest.
It’s like the highlight of the article.
People complaining about that are rather silly. There’s a difference between abusing women and a man and a woman trying to beat the stuffing out of each other on equal terms.
You don’t consider yourself a feminist? That’s unfortunate.
I don’t consider myself one of those either. It’s sort of unfortunate though you’re right. It means I can’t bring myself to whine as much as them. Kind of sucks. Sometimes I feel like complaining a lot about nothing too. It seems like fun. Funfortunate. That last part didn’t make any sense but that’s how I feel right now. Feels like globin.
Feminism definition: “the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.”
Literally, being a feminist just means that you believe women should have equal rights.
By that logic, would you have been one of the people against women voting? “Complaining about nothing”? The future is really going to be a tough place for you, I think.
I’m going to assume that you’re more familiar with radical feminism, and you’re not trying to be an evil person. Most feminists aren’t pushy or crazy, like you might be thinking. We just want equality.
Edit: None of this relates to this article, so I’m feeling a bit foolish. I find nothing about women in fighting games inherently wrong. Smash is great. I love Smash. Can’t we just talk more about Smash?
I looked up the definition before posting. I’m not an advocate.
1. a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.
Also I’ve seen posts from you that I didn’t agree with, but I barely remember them. Meh.
As for equality. All men are not created equal. I don’t know where people got that idea from but it wasn’t from God, History, or even Science. It’s ridiculous. I could write a long post about why I think this but it’s common sense. People aren’t born with the same talents, and can’t use them to get the same jobs. An ugly person is never going to be treated the same as a pretty person. Even twins end up in different places. Maybe things will get to be more to your liking in the future, I don’t know, but if you ever expect things to be equal, even a conversation between two people, you’re fooling yourself.
I wish. I guess you guys didn’t start the derailing this time though, so I’m sorry. Little Mac and Zero Suit Samus are probably going to be my mains. I’ll be punching and kicking people to karp. I just realized that they’re complete opposites too. Tall:Short, Punch:Kick Air:Ground I just wanted to use them because they look so cool, especially Little Mac. That quick dodge punch stuff seems like it’ll suit me.
I totally get what you’re saying, and I had been thinking the same thing. People are never going to be exactly equal, but that’s not what I’m advocating, either. I recently read an article that said something cool about this. Excuse the outside resource: “Some people have a great deal of privilege, others experience a great deal of suffering and structural oppression. Equality is not identical treatment for those who are disadvantaged by structural forms of oppression and those who are benefited by structural privilege, it is treating the privileged and the oppressed differently in ways that ultimately help to equal out the power imbalances between them. Equality means recognizing where there are differences, and treating people in ways that are conscious of their needs, resources, and experiences in consideration of the structural privileges and oppressions they face.” So, I guess it’s more like equity, than equality, really. If you disagree, that’s fine, too. I just think that a world like that sounds great.
I was just originally disappointed that the top rated comment was essentially, “Haha, feminists are so easily offended. They don’t event want girls get hit in video games, in a fair fight!” But that’s such bullshit. Only radical feminists are like that. I’m cool, as long as the woman gets to be involved productively.
I’m really interested in playing as Little Mac, too. I’m a bit confused about his charge up that leads to an insta-kill, but he looks really fun!
Women should be invincible in fighting games because it promotes “equality” among gender hehe
It’s ok. Samus had armor on when she took the punch.
Relax, please. No need to forge straw feminists here. Enjoy the Smash. The eternal Smash.
Today I will teach you guys what a feminist is and what an idiot that like to call themselves a feminist is which also what some people seem to assume what a feminist is.
In this situation, a feminist wouldn’t give a shit about Little mac giving hard hits to Samus because this is a fighting game. They’d be happy about that the female rooster is getting bigger instead.
An idiot, will think it’s not right that a woman is being hit in a fighting game when that’s what happens in fighting game.
But guess what, people pay more attention to the idiots in any group because humans are a weird bunch.
That’s just the sad fact that modern feminism is run by the inmates, so to speak. Many ‘moderates’ are pushed out because of radicals creating the status quo in the organization.
Really, it’s kind of silly to be associated with any ‘isms’ in the modern age.
Radicals are the ones that are normally the loudest which is the saddest fact. Even when you change ships they’ll be right on your heels squawking nonsense.
Thing is, I’ve seen tons of you people say this, and this is like the only time where they didn’t make themselves out to be the same type of loudmouth that they were speaking against. Good on you for not being like them but at this point I think the only reason you weren’t is because your post was short. Crying over video games makes people respect you less, not more. After all the bull I’ve seen it’d take a whole lot to convince me that the people advocating equality in video games are doing anything other than crying.
Crying is the last thing I do. I honestly want to punch people that make stupid statements like “little mac shouldn’t punch samus” that cause it helps no one except for provide example of why some people need a good smacking of common sense and duck tape for their mouths.
I would think feminists would be happy about the large female roster, including Lucina over Chrom.
You never really know with people whose entire hobby is to voice outrage online. I actually did hear of people complaining because there aren’t enough male characters for the female fans as well. It’s just a huge cluster of complaints every which way with some people.
Personally, I am. I don’t think most feminists have any issue with Smash Bros, or any other Nintendo games. They’re pretty good, I think.
People with nothing better to do than whine about straw-feminists spotting an opportunity to do so? Trolls incoming!
NEW CHARACTERS AT GAMESCOM PLEASE!
Last that I heard, Nintendo avoided the last gamescom… given what they have been doing for E3 in the last two years, I would think that they would be better served doing a ND and Treehouse for both gamecom and TGS (which they never attend usually).
But we’ll see what happens
or another Digital Event hey at least Smash for 3DS and WiiU is playable at Gamescom
I wonder why Lil Mac And Samus Is always Paired against each other? Could it be . . . Because Mac only punches and Samus Only Kicks?
[ Minus the cannon attacks ]
Samus neutral A.
But it because Samus is one tall ultra powerful female
one tall ultra super fighting robot
ahh…. i want a new Metroid xD
Did we ever find out hat that stage/area was that Sakurai screenshot of back in January? It was the adventue mode looking area
I think that turned out to be an area in Smash Run
Little Mac REALLY knows how to hold a grudge!
Seems Mac has an Edward Elric syndrome heh.
As it should be. Mac should’ve been in Smash from the beginning.
kicks to much asssssss
