Miis in Smash Bros. is moving away from what Smash Bros. is supposed to be about

#1alihaq717Posted 6/10/2014 9:12:25 AM
Is anyone incredibly turned off by Miis in Smash Bros., or is it just me? Smash Bros. has always been about playing Nintendo characters, and while the Mii could be considered as one, it's not necessarily an actual individual "character". It's going to be weird playing the game and seeing these weird Miis all over the screen. God dammit and they're ugly as heck too, they look so bad graphically.

Honestly I was so hyped for this game, about to move on from League of Legends to Smash, but this move has single-handedly ruined my hype and expectations. The fact that the Miis take up 3 character slots is just the icing on top of the pile of *** that Sakurai just dumped on us.

Their announcement was awesome, fine, and dandy up until Sakurai said "I can't always put character requests in Smash, but now you can!"

F***** hell, that's exactly WHY I didn't want Miis. It becomes an excuse to not put in some characters.

Don't be stupid, he's saying he can't possibly put in all the INSANE number of equally INSANE character requests, like Cloud and whatnot, but now you "can." This isn't an excuse not to make new characters, which should be ****ing obvious by now.

Doesn't bother me at all. Can be fun smashing celebrities in the grill.

Must... resist...

Whew, almost put down "k" or "cool story bro"...

If we take into account other characters in the game that are not actually singularly unique (any Pokemon or Yoshi for example), then the Miis follow suit. We are not playing as THE Pikachu, we are playing as A Pikachu. Likewise, we are not playing as THE Mii, we are playing as A Mii.

Agreed, TC. I really wish they would've strayed far away from this. Seems like Nintendo can't get enough of Miis now, and they're just everywhere.
