No matter who your favorite character is from any franchise, be it Snake Eyes, James Bond, Darth Fett, or Jack Burton, they will one day appear in Smash Bros.
Honestly, I am okay with all the redesigns. It doesn’t ruin the characters that I knew and loved while growing up. It’s sort of just amazing that a lot of things I loved as a kid are still around. That might make me a Man-Baby… come to think of it, that’s not a bad name for She Ra or He Man’s son child…
I think the only reason NIntendo got away with putting Dead Hand in Ocarina of Time was the muddy N64 graphics. You couldn’t quite make out all the gore on the ground where you fight him, or weather he was covered in bloody bandages or just had bloody sores all over. Either way, what the hell?
I know, we made E3 jokes, but this point can’t really be stressed enough. I really thought the industry bigwigs realized this. Even if your musical act has something to do with the games you’re going to show, at LEAST show the game on a screen during the musical presentation. Maybe it impresses some group that I’m not a part of that just wants to see that a company has enough money to throw around like this.
We did some fast comics throughout the week responding to E3 like usual, here is a selection of them, you can see everything we posted, and more shenanigans on our facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/doublexpcomic/
