21, Male.

  • I watch KCAL 9 news (supporting that CBS) about twice a week for anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour because there is nothing else on TV and it fits in between work and school.
  • I also watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. They are entertaining to watch and they usually take a deeper look at the bigger stories.
  • I will watch the news on Univison at night sporadically. They tend to cover different news then the english stations.
  • On the internet I have Yahoo! set as my homepage and will usually cycle through the news there and click on anything that seems interesting. It is just a habit I have that whenever I open the internet I look through the stories. The commenters on yahoo articles are the worst though.
  • The Off-Topic section of NeoGAF also usually covers some other events. I am there for the goofy threads but occasionally there are news threads that cover stuff I hadn't heard before.
  • On the radio I listen to El Show de Don Cheto in the mornings and they also cover a few news items everyday.

I feel that I am fairly well informed about what is going on. If something big has happened then I will usually know what generally happened but I rarely actually dig into any news stories to search for more information then what is given.

I've been a fan of smash brothers since the original and enjoy the game immensely but something that has thoroughly confused me for years now is why the smash community (professional players, tournament players, and their respective communities) are so unbelievable toxic to new players, casual players, and anyone who doesn't like playing the game the "professional way" (Final destination, no items, yada yada yada).

So was your local Smash community mean to you? Or are you basing this off of a few people on the internet and saying that everyone in the community is like that? I've met nice Smash players locally, and for internet forums the NeoGAF Smash community is one of the nicest places on the internet.

Some assholes doesn't mean a community on the whole is "toxic." I't would be like calling the Giant Bomb community toxic just because some users like @mariachimacabre are assholes.

Words hurt, Darth. Words hurt.

:D

I want them to announce Gengar as a playable character. If justice exists in Nintendoland, they'll stop ignoring the best Pokemon.

Nobody wants to play as a purple ghost turd.

It's just sort of weird they announced Greninja and Generic Orange Dragon as playable characters. Oh well. Greninja makes up for such a boring pick.

For a second, I thought it might have been a Skyrim or Dragonheart tie-in but then I thought "Wait. Skyrim wasn't on the Wii and Dragonheart came out in 1996 so I couldn't be that. Oh wait yeah, that's the Pokemon lame people like even though Blastoise and Venusaur are both infinitely cooler."

People still care about Smash Brothers?

...that was my second thought too. It might be a sign I'm jaded about the whole thing but I am not feeling the hype at all. Its like the announcement on The Last of Us on the PS4: Nice but not a surprise and pretty far from "OMG!" territory.

People still care about video games? And on a website about video games no less? That is shocking. :P

Hello hyperbole.

Looking at this message board over the last several weeks (maybe even months) people are obsessed about other things. The only mention of Smash Bros. was that "Project M" thing. Forgive me if I thought people had moved onto other things. Forgive me if I am skeptical about people going "This is awesome!" because as far as I could tell no one here was thinking about it.

I'm not your priest, you don't need to apologize to me. But for what it's worth I forgive you. :D

3 legendaries sound good. If anyone uses Blissey they are a poo-poo head and a jerk (and will probably win).

Is it any 3 legendaries?
