Toon Link isn't a clone of Link. They have different movesets and abilities. A clone character is something like Falco is to Fox, whose moves in previous games had no real difference. I'd wager that Lucina's moves differentiate her from Marth and she's more than just a female version of his move set.

I haven't actually been paying close attention to Toon Link. Is it more than just speed, height and different colored bombs and arrows this time?

Ah, it seems Chrom isn't playable and is just part of a Final Smash.

Really? I was expecting him to be an Ike clone, as a counterpart to his daughter.

They're getting rid of clone characters. The only "clones" that exist now are the alternate gender swaps for characters like Robin and the Wii Fit Trainer.

Lucina seems like a clone of Marth. Also Toon Link.

I was not expecting any more Fire Emblem characters to appear. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

More like Captain Swagger.
Lady Robin or boy Robin, the choice is yours!
Lucina has a death scare that can make even Luigi shit his pants.

Also it seems like Chrom is just a part of Robin's final smash. I suppose he'll get his chance another day.

I just noticed it because I follow StarvingGamer, he posted a new blog a week ago, and I just learned about it through the forums. I never got a notification for it. I double checked and I am indeed following him and I have everything checked in my settings.

@corruptedevil: Something like:

  • Fightstick ~ $200
  • Gate ~ $25
  • Replacement stick ~ $25
  • Buttons + Balltop = $130

So all-told it's probably something like $400 o_O

Holy shit. I spent just over $100 on my stick and even then I felt it was pricey. That said if they ever released some Marvel buttons I probably wouldn't be able to resist.

Anyway your stick looks really damn great.

There's isn't much that makes her special, but I swapped out the stick when the old one went bad and of course traded my square-gate in for an 8-way gate because I'm not a maniac, so in those little ways she's unique to me.


Seriously, why the fuck aren't octo gates the standard?

Oh my god I'm suddenly super hype about Smash again! It seemed like the leak that's been flying around was gonna be all the characters we're getting, but it sure as hell didn't have Rayman or any other Ubisoft character on it. Speculation reigns again!

You're talking about the Gematsu leak right? That one never mentioned Rosalina so hope for other characters has been very much alive since then.

It has been really poop in my experience, both in terms of image quality and playability. With Wi-Fi it was literally unusable (it would disconnect every 40 seconds or so) and with a direct connection there was still noticeable input lag.

With the way I had heard it talked up by some people i was expecting the same quality that the Wii U delivers. It is not even close.

Elaborate troll. To Ubisoft too for probably making them think that Rayman was going to be an assist trophy or something more important than a vanilla collectable.

Hard to see Argentina lose, but Germany were indeed the more top to bottom well oiled machine.

To be fair though, and this is probably just my bias as a german talking, Argentinia should have gotten at least 1 red card throughout the game (more like 2). The way they tackled some of our players (especially Schweinsteiger and Kramer) was brutal. It was a great game though an easily could have ended the other way around. Glad that it wasn't a boring finale.

If anything Germany's goalie deserved a red card or at the very least Argentina deserved a penalty kick.

And thank you Joachim Loew, although this still doesn't make you a master tactician exactly, you sure as hell have deserved your place among the very best. The German national team has come a long, long way with him as the head coach. And what a successful one it turned out to be in the end.

What was up with him? He had the same static face the whole time. It was like he had taken a horse tranquilizer before the game.

Can you guys imagine how ecstatic Herrera would have been if that had been Mexico that won? He would have been like something out of a Looney Tunes cartoon.
