Pick a Side! 01: Ridley

#1KillerKremlingPosted 3/7/2014 7:52:29 PM
Hey guys and welcome to a new series I am creating called "Pick a Side!" where the rules are simple, I choose a topic to tackle and add yourself to either the For or Against list and then state your reasoning below. I know it's not too interesting but I feel it's a neat way to get all of board's users together to show where they stand and why, and just to illustrate it better than a generic poll. So let's get started.

Our first topic is probably one of the most famous and controversial, Should Ridley be playable in Super Smash Bros. Wii U? Let's get started:

For:
- KillerKremling

Against:

This is a topic I've been back and forth on for a while and I've come to my final conclusion. While his overall size may pose a problem in the end this is no reason to ever say he doesn't deserve to be in the game. He is an incredibly important character and Metroid and deserves to be in. We're not Game Devs so let's just hope for the best.

A character is not limited in their moveset potential, you are just limited in imagination.

Against:

Ridley is the recurring antagonist in his series, a very memorable and unique villain, has a cruel and sadistic yet intelligent attitude, and is a space dragon for God's sake! Plus Metroid is good enough to warrant 2 reps.

I'm for Ridley. I want a second Metroid rep, either Dark Samus or Ridley. I think Ridley's more important, and would be more interesting to play as, but I would still be happy with DS if we couldn't have Ridley.

The issue has never been whether or not he deserves it though.

Anyway, I'm not against his inclusion, but I wouldn't want him to look weird next to Samus (or even by himself, for that matter) either. The Brawl hacks/mods were awful, in my opinion. I felt like they totally missed the point of Ridley's character. Obviously, the real deal would be more professional-looking than that, but that still might not be enough. If he looks and feels right, then I'm happy, but if he looks or feels odd, then I'd be disappointed.

In other words, I can't pick a side. lol
