The Totoro cake is so cute!!!
English Astroboy discussion forums.
I definitely saw it. I chatted on Skype among some of my friends and we had an absolute blast (ended up chatting all night about the game and then some)."Shiyonasan" wrote:Oh man, that does looks delicious, Earthshine! It's amazing how some people can make elaborate-looking cakes like that. It makes you not want to eat them because they're like a piece of art! (No pun intended.)
In other news, did anyone watch the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct today? I know at least one other person on here likes the Super Smash Bros. series. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited for what's coming in the next game in both versions.

I'm not sure why they put up the 3DS version first. Might be because they finished up that game first and are releasing that one first."Shiyonasan" wrote:Agreed on all points.
I wonder if they're releasing the 3DS version first and a few months before the Wii U version to help generate more revenue for the 3DS version and to make some fans interested in buying both versions.
It would be interesting to see K. Rool come back. I was surprised to see the Kremlings back since I thought the rights for them still belonged to Rare. Guess I was wrong.
I think what I'm most interested in seeing at this point is who's going to return from previous games. I've heard that the roster is supposed to be around the same as Brawl's? If so, there's not much room for more characters, since 29 have been confirmed so far and there was 39 in Brawl. I get the feeling that characters like Jigglypuff and Lucas won't return.
As long as my mains from Melee (Ganondorf) and Brawl (Captain Falcon) get confirmed, I'll be happy with whatever the roster is!
This has been frequently misquoted to say that the roster will be around Brawl's size, but that is not what Masahiro Sakurai is saying here. What Sakurai is actually saying is that there's much more to a game than just the characters (which is true) and that it is very difficult to balance 50+ characters in a game. As for the "In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible", considering that the roster for each game was decided during the pre-production stage (with exceptions made if there is more time to add characters in late or a very, very special case), I'd imagine that he's referring to this upcoming game's roster and not Brawl's.“It isn’t a matter of ‘if the next game has 50 characters, that’ll be enough.’ There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive…. In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.”
I'm expecting three newcomers to be shown off at E3 myself; two of them being Pac-Man and Mii's and one of them being a highly requested character that would hype the game (Palutena, King K. Rool or Mewtwo would fit this). We should also see multiple veteran confirmation; I'm hoping for Ike myself. Smash Direct was big and I can't imagine E3 being THAT much smaller of a deal for Smash and characters are the best way to hype a game."Shiyonasan" wrote:That's good to hear. I've heard that rumor all over the internet, so I assumed it to be true. Glad to hear that's not the case.
Considering the small amount of time between now and when the 3DS version is supposed to be released, I'm wondering if they'll reveal a bunch of characters at E3 like they did with this Nintendo Direct a couple weeks ago.
I agree that Snake, Ivysaur, and Squirtle probably won't come back. I'm also thinking that the Melee exclusive characters won't come back either due to the whole "not wanting clones" thing.
Man, I can tell I've been off of Smashboards for a while. My discussion skills regarding Smash Bros. aren't what they used to be.
