Oh, heeeyyyy, a bonus comic! ‘Haven’t seen one of those in a while.
Poor Villager… Try to keep a cheery disposition and everyone calls you a yandere/psycho. The world we live in…
I’ve seen this “Villager is a Psycho” meme spreading around a lot, but I honestly don’t feel it. Animal Crossing is cutesy; suggesting he’s evil feels weird to me. Maybe I’m just not very into the whole “What if this cute/nice thing were actually horrifying?” thing. Or maybe I’m just thinking too much about internet memes.
So, yeah, Super Smash Bros. 4. It looks like a spiffy ride in the making, and it’s already announced some really interesting characters. We got Mega Man, we got the Animal Crossing Villager, we got… The Wii Fit Trainer!? Yup. My knee-jerk reaction was “THAT’S who they added? They could have chosen any number of well-known, cool female characters, and they chose the one that’s designed to be generic.” But seriously, you gotta watch the video. The idea’s actually grown on me and now I’m really anticipating giving ‘er a whirl.
Of course, I can’t say much for the game, other than character reveals, considering the real make-or-break for most any fighting game lies in the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) nuances of the mechanics. People laid into Brawl for being more floaty and slower than it’s Melee counterpart (though there’s an excellent mod for Brawl that tweaks it up to “tournament calibur”). Personally, I’m not much of a “pro”, though I know my way around a few characters, namely Kirby. What can I say? I’m excited. I’m not sure it’s “I’m buying a Wii U just for this game” excited, but we’ll see.
I’m Scared (WARNING: Rather Scary)
Best of Week 5-1
Our downstairs neighbors moved about a week ago. No one’s taken their place, yet. It’s… quiet, but I randomly hear loud thumping/banging emanating at night. *shiver*
That Kirby comic’s still scheduled for Saturday. I wanna poke more fun at E3 stuff, but a near-month-old promise is a near-month-old promise.
SEE YOU THEN~
