Still doesn’t matter. Olimar is supposed to be less than an inch tall, Kirby is only 8 inches tall, Pikachu is supposed to be about 16 inches tall, and Bowser has gotten bigger and bigger over the years but remains about the size he was in SMB1 in Smash. Sakurai had no problem scaling them all to be plausible as fighters in the game, which makes the “Ridley’s size is rigid and cannot be changed” exuse sound like exactly that-- an excuse.
Ridley would still be a large, heavyweight character and would be quite imposing in-game even if he was the appropriate size to be a player character, and he’s not even infamous for his size in the Metroid series either. The Metroid character who is notorious for being terrifyingly large is Kraid, who in most appearances was so big that only his head and shoulders will fit on the screen. Ridley is in fact one of the smallest boss characters in the series.
Ridley was barely bigger than Samus in the NES game. Sakurai is just making shit up because he’s a troll.
>Smash heights aren’t the same as canonical heights.
Except when it’s Ridley, according to Sakurai.
But yeah, Fox is supposed to be about the height of a slightly below-average human. As far as I know the characters in Star Fox are not supposed to be hobbit-sized.
They initially referred to the thing as “a cluster-fail of technology.”
See that blinding light? That is the universe dividing by zero in response to the sheer awkwardness of what is happening.
Same here. I though “a family of purple walruses? Could that be a reference to Rotor?”
Also, I love the OCs in this show. They actually look like they have some thought put into them, most likely because of how long it takes to make a 3D model.

Sorry, I was confused for a second. I saw all the angry fanboys whining about Project M here and for a second I thought that I was on /v/.

Why doesn’t Trumpet Fight have its own article on KYM yet?

I hope Sam Biddle’s career ends as a consequence of his actions. And before anyone says that’s too harsh a thing to say, keep in mind Wal-Mart and McDonalds will still hire him. He’s not entitled to work in the gaming industry.
I wonder how long it’ll be before an obsessive fan creates this in real life?
This takes jailbait to a whole other level.

It’s too bad the game is so crappy, because the pilot of the show was pretty great. Hopefully the show succeeds even if the game bombs.
If you are over something, you don’t feel the need to announce it.
Sweden is basically Anthony Burch if he were a country.
I can’t believe I read through that entire rant, but he went straight off the McIntosh chart. He wrote like a 5 page essay on how irredeemably corrupt he thinks Western culture is just because he didn’t realize that the format of a website had changed.
