Commented on Another "Leak"

I didn’t even read the entire thing once I saw those “new” Mario and Bowser. It’s clearly Brawl models with custom skins being rendered through Project M.

My first shiny Pokemon was a Rattata in Crystal. I was playing it through Pokemon Stadium 2 since I didn’t have a GBC at the time. It evolved into a Pink Raticate.

Cloning is probably the wrong term, what they are close to is hatching dinosaurs through manipulation of bird embryos (since birds aren’t just the ancestors but actual dinosaurs just feathery and smaller).

I forgot the name of the documentary but it basically it explains how despite evolution changing and creating new species over thousands of years, the traits of old animals are still around just turned off or slightly modified. This is demonstrated in evolutionary throwbacks like humans with small tails, and dolphins with an extra pair of flippers in the lower back.

They conducted an experiment where they modified the acitvator for a chicken embryo that controls the tail growth, which is normally short. They succeeded in having it grow out longer more reminiscent of a dino’s tail.

Fake leakers DO go through a lot of effort to fool people.

It’s just what they do.

Modifying the UI to make more room isn’t that difficult.

This isn’t like they building a physical product with shelves and slot spaces for each character and then new characters are suddenly added at the bottom.

That could be something. The game is coming out soon after and needs to be rated.

Yeah that is another option. But that brings up of the issue of where and when was the most recent gaming event for Nintendo to appear that wouldn’t have had official announcements anyways?

Well hot damn, that’s a nice catch. However not a full debunk. The original source uploader could have simply stitch two images together to remove the physical 3DS hardware in the shot. However I will admit that’s stretch.

I feel like if somebody was going to take a picture of a leak like this they should provide a date stamp to give proof.

According to the Smash Wikia Mii Fighters will only be available during “With Friends” mode.

Apparently the dog and duck have teamed up against the player now.

Miyamoto didn’t retire, not by a long shot. However I believe he’s stepped down for major AAA titles, and instead is focusing smaller personal project titles. Some of them were displayed at this year’s E3, including a Star Fox demo of some kind.

He has said on occasion that he’s stepping back so the younger developers can step forward without having the rely on Miyamoto.

Why would the Mii Fighters share a slot with Random? Why wouldn’t somebody not be allowed to choose the Mii Fighters.

I figured where would be three slots one for each type. And after you select the slot you can select a Mii face from either the entire Mii library or a preselected list of favorite Miis.

Except Doctor Mario was literally just a clone in Melee, just swap out the fireballs for pills, and the cape for…the white paper you lay down on in a doctor’s examination room?

Lucina’s overall speed and fighting style while similar to Marth’s is apparently faster and easier than Marth. It’s why Robin m/f is a skin. Same with Popo and Nana and the Wii Fit Trainers.

Interesting. Reverse search shows this version of the clown car was in NSMBU a game which I didn’t play.

While it is definitely a different angle that I can’t source in the above leak image. As somebody else pointed out the lack of Mii Fighters is another reason for the OP image being fake.

Commented on Unproven leak #2

I’m going to call a fake for 1 main reason.

Not all the characters are in matching areas, since Melee characters in the same or spin off franchises were located right to each other. Dark Pitt, Doctor Mario, and Lucina don’t fit that pattern. Doctor Mario would either be located next to, or at the end of the Mario franchise line. Lucina would be right after Ike or next to Marth. And Dark Pitt is kinda obvious.

A few other point though. While I’ve never played the new Kid Icarus, I assume Dark Pitt is just an evil copy of Pitt only stronger. While that would be an interesting character it’s not enough to make himself a designated slot. Especially since we already had a black robed Pitt in Brawl. This is much the same reason we don’t have a Dark Link just a black clothed/skinned Link.

That shot of Bowser Jr. looks like some sort of other kind of art. Specifically it looks like him riding the Pipe car from Mario Kart Double Dash.

Commented on Amy's excuse

Well to be far on the cops, Shadow acted at night when most things look black. And despite how fast we the players see Shadow and Sonic run I think it’s safe to say that they actually do appear like blurs to most people. So what’s the difference between a black blur to a blue blur at night.

They were good in retrospect. At the time you could probably find hundreds if not thousands who dislike the Beatles like many hate current boy bands. But The Beatles continued to grow and change out of the “boy bands” style. Something which most boy bands will never accomplish because the music industry is constantly “discovering” the “next big thing”

Well yeah I’m not denying that. Odds are people who didn’t like the Beatles probably had a similar reaction to how many view current boy bands. Of coarse they didn’t have the internet to pool their reactions to.

The Beatles are a good example of the “first boy band” they set the model for all future boy bands to be. But obviously they grew out of it, most boy bands never grow out of it.

I’d like to point out that this is nothing new when it comes to boy bands.

The Beatles is probably the greatest example of this kind of fanatical behavior of their fans. And YES the Beatles WERE a boy band. Lots of songs about girls, love, etc. Only difference is that Beatles continued to grow and change with their audience, while most boy bands of now are simply dropped by a record label for the next “best thing”

Regardless, apparently this kind of behavior got so bad in the US they actually either stopped making concert tours, or simple didn’t have public appearances outside of the concerts. I can’t remember what I read.

Right.

I just remember this image floating around before and being debunked already.

It’s a fake.

The Japanese text even makes fun of people who can’t read Japanese I believe.

Instead of Brawler Fighter like Smash, it would just be a Brawler Shooter, and the special moves involves summoning cars.
