  1. Smash controversy regarding war bonnet

    Somehow I missed this thread. It's good that Nintendo removed it. Yes, it's offensive when a group of people who've been victimized for hundreds of years, and who are still discriminated against, get represented in media as the bad guys coming to terrorize their oppressors. That's what the original game is. Of course it's a product of its time but that doesn't mean that it wasn't wrong back then too. It just means the opinion of Native Americans who it might have offended wasn't valued back then. And since the reference adds nothing positive to Smash Bros today, there's no reason to prioritize keeping it over not offending someone. The comparison to Mario Odyssey doesn't work because the Tostarenans and Mario's outfit aren't offensive in and of themselves, they're the opposite, celebrating a culture. What would be offensive is if the Tostarenans were depicted as evil invaders of the Mushroom Kingdom or if Mario in his costume had to lead an invasion of the Beanbean Kingdom or some crap like that. I do find it odd that people criticizing its removal are doing so by asking how anyone can be offended by such a small reference. If it was as unimportant as they claim then they wouldn't care that it got removed either.
  2. Tempest Trials: Before We Met…

    Lol at Azura saying Corrin "took responsibility" for their choice. That is not how I remember Fates' story.
  3. Elma vs Rex, fight!

    I want both, and also Malos as an echo. I expect Rex and Pyra will be DLC. And that's good enough for me.
  4. Feh Channel on the 7th 7:30pm PT

    I'm glad I forgot this was on because good lord Feh is annoying. She drags everything out to unbearable lengths. This could've been half as long and gotten the same information across. The actual content... meh. The new mode doesn't immediately interest me. Merging free units is good, though I dunno how much I'll make use of it. And book 3 teaser did nothing for me since I'm not really invested in the story. Wasn't expecting much anyway so I'm not let down, it's not like there was much to announce right now. I'll be more excited when book 3 actually starts and hopefully brings beasts into the game.
  5. New Heroes Appear: Adrift (November 9 ~)

    Everyone freaking out about Camilla getting a fifth alt and we don't even have the inevitable Brave and Legendary versions yet. It's gonna be real bad once that happens, isn't it?
  6. I'm a big fan of how Ray Chase has done Roy, so I really hope it's him and that he continues with the role for the inevitable FE6 remake. Having a hard time really hearing Roy in the videos though.
  7. New Heroes Appear: Adrift (November 9 ~)

    Wow, I'm just now seeing this. Just what we needed, a banner of Fates alts. This is so bad, as this whole thread has already made clear. And with their damage control announcement of FE6/10 banners, I wonder if the rest of the year's banners won't be equally as disappointing. They better have something very interesting to make up for it in the FEH Channel. The only good thing I can say is that the art looks good. Even male Corrin, I don't get why everyone is saying he looks funny. Is it just because he's wearing a dress? Nothing wrong with that but it looks more like robe anyway.
  8. 5 DLC characters, place your bets now

    Well, with the news from Sakurai I'm changing my predictions. I still think a Three Houses rep and a Xenoblade 2 rep are locks. As for the others... I'm guessing 2 of the following: a gen 8 Pokemon, a Metroid Prime 4 rep, and a BOTW or next Zelda rep (as the last release in 2020 after the reveal of the next Zelda game). The last spot will be a third party, either Rayman or a Square Enix character imo.

    13 minutes is too short to be anything big. I'm guessing Book 3 isn't until next year. If it's mentioned here then it might just be a trailer with "coming in 2019" to tease it and 2 or 3 smaller immediate updates to talk about. More likely it'll just be those smaller updates and a banner announcement.
  10. 5 DLC characters, place your bets now

    After seeing Chrom is also back as a Mii outfit, I feel like Rex could still be DLC. If he's one of the first to be released then he wouldn't feel so outdated. Is it realistic to expect at least 1 DLC pack in the first half of next year?
  11. Voting Gauntlet: Clashing Thunderers!

    Can't believe Ishtar lost. Granted it was very close but still. On team Reinhardt now, I'll be surprised if he doesn't win now that Odin and Ophelia are out.
  12. Ok, so Chrom is a fighter, a final smash, and a Mii costume? This is making me hopeful that Rex and ATs might actually have a shot at getting made into DLC fighters.
  13. I really lost a lot of hype with this last Direct, but I am excited to try the Belmonts and to play on all those stages. World of Light seems fun so I hope it's a worthwhile mode.
  14. That's disappointing. It would've been cool for it to change to something involving Grima. I am curious to see if it changes if Chrom is in the battle. If it stays the same, then it proves that a character can be playable even if they have another role in battle as well. Which would, in theory, extend to assist trophies and the possibility of them getting promoted to playable status.
  15. 5 DLC characters, place your bets now

    With the way it's looking, probably a mix of generic enemies and third party characters. Because they decided killing all remaining popular first party Nintendo characters was a good move. But semi-realistically... 1. Sora or another SE character, but not Geno I really can't see SE not getting another character but I also can't see it being Geno at this point. Sora is my pick but it could end up being Noctis or Eldrick from Dragon Quest if Disney doesn't allow it. 2. Dixie Kong She should already be in and I think she will be by the end of this game's development. 3. Rex and Pyra, Pyra alone, Mythra alone, Lora and Jin, Malos, or some sort of representation for XC2 It all depends on whether or not Sakurai decides the Mii costume is enough, but I can't see him not adding someone from this game. 4. Edelgard from FE Three Houses We know Sakurai likes FE, we know this game is coming out early next year. The timing is perfect. 5. Isaac, Felix, or Matthew from Golden Sun Wishful thinking but I'll keep supporting Golden Sun until it gets a playable fighter. I'm really hoping that there isn't more than 1 third party this time. Either that or have a second wave of DLC. A lot of ATs should ideally be promoted to playable, not just Isaac.
