@mcfart: Yeah, having a pathetically small room to put a Pikachu rug and a doll of Clefairy is the exact same thing as a Garrison.

I remember fondly going to my Secret Bases in Emerald and building an upgrade that allows me to essentially have a third profession, or all those quests I got from my Clefairy doll, or that cool time I had my own portals installed. It was great how that game made Secret Bases feel like a huge part of the world.

Great times.

That looks incredible, but man, I HATE those snakes flying out. I'd like to see the snakes either taken out or remove one and replace it the snakes tail or something.

Oh god no.

If there's anything less interesting to watch than Patrick's Solo Quick Looks, it's Patrick Solo'ing an entire game.

@hagane: "haha don't worry guys, I wasn't really going to hijack an airplane and fly in into the whitehouse, it was just hyperbole! why are you arresting me?"

No. Actions have consequences.

It's a great game. The ending is kinda lame and felt like they just ran out of time, but everything up to that is just so goddamn fun.

Because none of the "clones" are actual clones. Functionally they are completely different characters with the added advantage of requiring significantly fewer development resources than a completely original character would. Even if you got rid of all of them, there's no guarantee you'd free up enough dev time to properly implement a single all-new character.

I mean, no, they are clones. I don't know what you think "clones" mean, but from a fighting game perspective they are 100% pure clones. Lucina is especially literally a re-skin, except her sword has flat damage instead of Marth's tipper. They share identical moves for most of their specials, they have the same standard attacks, air attacks and fighting/moving animations. Dr. Mario and Dark Pit have one unique move each - Dr. Mario clones Luigi's down-b and Dark Pit clones Zelda and Shiek's final smash.

That's not a bad thing though. Sakurai has recently used the metaphor that creating a character is the equivalent of creating a large meat dish for a meal, while creating a clone is the equivalent of creating a small dessert. They require significantly less work to make. Only Lucina was ever planned as a clone too - Dr. Mario and Dark Pit were last minute additions to the roster.

Basically, the people in this thread complaining that they took the slot of another character don't understand how game development works.

You can go out and get the food yourself for like half the cost, so no, don't think I'll sign up.

I love when people try to infer that there's some feud going on between members of staff.

I think the last thread I saw was someone trying to say Rorie hated Brad? No wait, it might have been Alex hates Patrick.

People are weird.
