GSR is streaming Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS
right now and I am watching. Sharing my thoughts on what I see.
Mega Man: Looks really fun to play as.
Robin: Looks like he'll be a challenge for me to play. It'll force me to change my game up a bit; that's good!
Toon Link: Appears to handle fairly close to how he did in Brawl
... this is good news for me.
Falco: Meh. Still won't use him. I prefer Fox anyway.
Shulk: His range looks INSANE. Looks really fun to play as! I'm really glad he made it into the game and I can't wait to try him out.
Villager: Lots of very unique attacks. While I'll definitely give him a spin, I have a feeling I won't
Marth: From what I saw before the lag, same as the usual. I suppose this means both he and Lucina won't really be used much.
I like the character selection screen; no wasted space on extra stuff. Just squares with the official character artworks inside. It's a very clean look; unfortunately I doubt it'll be matched in the Wii U version, since there will only be one screen there to work with.
Captain Falcon: He brings the punch, of course. Seriously, though. It's killer.
I think I preferred how All-Star mode was setup in Brawl
, where it was done by series. I guess it's cool to fight the cast in historical order of appearance, but all it really does is make you realize how many of these characters originated in the 80s... Nintendo needs to make some more new IP and add them to Smash (like the Splatoon characters).
That Spirit Tracks
stage is pretty cool. 3D Land looks like a fun stage too, even though it scrolls (ew). Multi-Man brawl has you fighting against the Mii Fighters... I have to try that while playing as the Mii Fighters....
Greninja still looks cool. Poor Pokemon, though - using its tongue for everything. Yuck. Must taste really bad. Just saw a giant Red Greninja.
Wario seems to move a little smoother than in Brawl
Little Mac hits really fast, moves really fast - I can already tell I'm going to enjoy using him!
Break the targets is really weird this time. You get a giant bomb and it's like the sandbag challenge mixed with Angry Birds?
Mii Fighter customization looks really cool - can't wait to try it out. You can even give them hats to wear in battle! And different outfits. The Mii Gunner looks kinda neat, although I'll probably go for the Brawler or Swordfighter myself.
Classic mode is really awesome! Master Hand and Crazy Hand can combine to form... Master Core? Very interesting.
Credits sequence is awesome. Some sort of mini game called tin spinner or something? I dunno, but it looks super fun. A neat little box breaking mini game too, apparently the fastest way to get trophies.
And that was that; I'm off now to try and sleep and such.
It was fun, and I can't wait to get my hands on the game. Special shoutouts to Ddude, Blade, JMJ, Skitty and Squishy, who were also hanging out on the stream, and a huge thanks to GSR for streaming the game!
