Rizz Rant: Whining About SMASH

This week Nintendo announced the final three DLC names that are coming out soon. Final Fantasy’s Cloud (everyone knew about that one), another character from Fire Emblem (Corrin) and, yes, Bayonetta. Yippy! Right?! WRONG!

Bayonetta

I’m sure you guys are upset. I know you are. At first, I was right there with you wondering “Hey, where’s Knuckles? Where’s Shovel Knight? Where’s King K. Rool? Where’s Snake? Where’s Rayman? Where’s Goku? Where’s Krillin? Where’s Nico Bellic? Where’s Peppy? Where’s Waldo? Where’s Dr. Wiley? Where’s Metal Sonic? Where’s Tails? Where’s the Contra guys? Where’s Q*Bert? Where’s Conker? Where’s Bubsy?! Where’s (enter name here)?”

Then I realized something, maybe it’s not for us to tell NINTENDO who they should and shouldn’t have on their games. I mean, they are Nintendo after all. They have been doing this since before you and I were probably born. Do you guys remember when the outrage was about Tomogachi Life and how many people wanted same-sex marriage/adoption in the game? What did Nintendo do? Didn’t give in to people’s demands and, actually, still made sense while denying Tomogachi Life.

Nintendo has been doing things like this for years, boys and girls. They’re going to make great and revolutionary games and then they will make decisions that most of you won’t like but they know one thing: YOU’RE STILL GOING TO PLAY THE GAME! YOU’RE STILL GOING TO ENJOY THE GAME! YOU’RE STILL GOING TO BUY THE AMIIBOS WHEN THEY COME OUT! So it doesn’t really matter who they put in the last DLC…

You know what? This thing goes deeper than just Smash and Nintendo. Look at the backlash Mortal Kombat is receiving for who they have in their upcoming DLC. A Xenomorph from Alien and the guy from Texas Chainsaw Massacre are in the game and the first comment I’ve seen wasn’t praise and wasn’t excitement…It was anger. Anger because there weren’t characters that were already in the series (that, honestly, nobody really knows) instead of horror CLASSICS that are known for blood and gore. Not only that but to have multiple Alien v. Predator matchups. HOW CAN ANYONE BE ANGRY ABOUT THAT?!

Someone please tell me who else would you like in Mortal Kombat? Friggin’ Stryker?

Watch Here For the New Smash Bros. Character (UPDATE!)

Today it was revealed that Fire Emblem is going to have a HUGE impact on the world of Super Smash Brothers.

With the reveal of Captain Falcon (someone who, honestly, should have been announced MONTHS ago), Nintendo has announced that Lucina, Chrom and the Fire Emblem Avatar, being named “Robin” will also be JOINING THE FIGHT *CHING*! A cool thing they did for Robin is, like in Fire Emblem, you will be able to choose whether Robin is going to be male or female. What is not known if it’s just going to be a skin or a totally different character.

Are you happy with these three being in the game? Who would you have in Super Smash Bros? I still want my Stwongbaaahd!
