To address exactly one point of your essay: I'm certain that making the Battlefield forms of stages didn't take many resources at all. It's just adding 3 platforms to every stage, in the exact same position every time. They probably got an intern to do it.

I will at least confess that I too have some gripes about the way B and K look in Smash during gameplay. But I didn't want to say anything, so as not to be a party pooper. Kazooie's hair looks weird. Their proportions don't feel right, at all. But that may just be because I'm accustomed to 3D models that were made back in 1998, for God's sake.
They overall seem to have a very Japanese spin to their designs, and that just doesn't work with them. They look odd, somehow, next to all the other characters. Spiral Mountain looks...wrong, but I'm not knocking it.

...However, if 'Kazooie's hair looks weird' is the best grouse I can stir up, then that my friends is what we call NITPICKING and we don't DO that when our beloved avian and ursine buddies have FINALLY made it into Smash Bros. like goddamn, I'm as happy as a clam. My excitement far outweighs anything else. They obviously put a lot of love and care into putting these guys in, which is all I ever asked for, and more.

Besides, in certain lights they actually do look gorgeous. LOOK AT THIS RENDER! LOOK AT IT!!!!!



It's amazing!

yeah i get that DLC isn't forever, i've seen it firsthand with umvc3, but nothing is made to last anymore anyway. i bring up melee in particular because its depth and playerbase are much richer than other games, but yeah, you actually could pick any old game and play it forever. that's why i've put 500-1000 hours into ISS64 just since the 2018 world cup

that's why i don't think it's worth it to get mad at ultimate, a party/tournament game, for having little single player content. there are more singleplayer games out there than you'll ever play, and ultimate was made with the competitive player in mind. (for once!)

Holy heck... TRBB, this is the first Banjo in a video game that we've had in over 10 years, not counting re-releases. I can understand being critical of the style it is done in (such as the NaB style), but everything they did in the trailer was paying homage to how Banjo used to be.

Banjo being in Smash is great news, even if you don't like Smash. It means that Banjo is in something, which is great.

Unfortunately that render will need typical ugly plastic support on the amiibo.

It can only mean that Ssslumber is going to be the fourth DLC character.

They had a silly stinger like that at the end of Joker's trailer too.

The NAB blocky models fit the game because that is the whole game's art style. Granted, I don't like them either, and stand alone the blocky Banjo looks weird, but in the context of NAB it is.... good enough.

Well, maybe you're right. They sure did make a big deal about it though.
I guess by doing so, it made it sound like it was a much bigger task than it actually was?

Yeah, I've noticed that too. It was a little jarring seeing Banjo doing a victory/peace sign with his hand. Mario did that in "Super Mario 64" and, in an interview, Miyamoto said that he wanted Mario to quit doing that because he didn't want Mario 'to be known for doing the victory/peace sign with his hands' - it does feel like a very Japanese-like thing to do.

I'm less mad and more disappointed we couldn't have a good balance of both like we did in "Brawl." I mean, this game was developed for the Nintendo Switch so I expected more Co-op modes to return (Smash Run, Homerun Contest, Events, etc.) to make use of the two Joycons bundled in - not just have the modes out-right removed.

That's just something that will always bother me: the one thing I hate seeing more than bad games are decent or good games that had much greater potential of being an even better game.

I agree, I love seeing Banjo & Kazooie back for the first time in 10 years. I'm even happier that Nintendo found a way to properly animate Banjo & Kazooie's character model. I knew they were going to use the classic design from the beginning, but part of me was thinking they'd just use the Nuts & Bolts design because Kazooie's neck is longer and it would've avoided her head clipping into things. Spiral Mountain looks fine, but I wished it looked a little bit better than what they showed. Hopefully they'll improve those ugly textures by the time autumn comes around. Anyways, I hope this is a sign of more Banjo games to come.

okay, you can't really honestly think that brawl was aimed towards competitive players at all, lol
