So...What's so bad about third parties?
I'm a Nintendo fanboy. Microsoft bores me and Sony is just OK to me. You don't see me all like "ZOMGZZZ TEH THARD PARTEEZ MUZT B CUT!"
I'm very sorry, Irken :'(
That wasn't meant to be a slight at you. In fact, I was under the impression you were neutral as well. My greatest apologies.

No offense taken. Nintendo fanboys tend to be that way. Bleck, I'm an Ashley fanboy and a Sonic fanboy, but I'm nothing like the rest of their fandoms...fan art, fan art everywhere.

we need MORE third party characters, preferably Wii U third party exclusives, to help the sales and relevance of the third party games so the Wii U doesn't go the way of the N64, GameCube, and Wii (all of which I liked.)

I'm perfectly fine with 3rd party characters. Mega Man's my 2nd most wanted newcomer. So long as the character has some history with Nintendo, I'm okay.

My issue isn't with third party characters; it's with third party characters that don't deserve to be in the game.
If you put Pacman and Megaman in Smash, I'd honestly be thrilled with that. Heck, I'd love Bomberman, too.
That said, I've always had a problem with Snake being in the game. The character's fine, except that his heart's belonged to Sony for years. MGS4 was a PS3 exclusive, and the entire Metal Gear Solid series was really born and raised on Playstation. I understand that he had a history with Nintendo, and some of the games were re-released on Gamecube years later, but that's not a justifiable reason to put a character in.
When we learned that the reason he joined the game was because Kojima specifically requested it... well yeah, I've got a problem with that. How many fans have requested characters over the years? And then someone with a vested marketing interest requests a character, and it's like "oh, okay, sure! I'll just put dixie/tetra/roy/megaman/etc on hold so I can fulfill your request."
If we get more third party characters like Snake, it's gonna be really disappointing. Especially Tales characters. I'm really worried about seeing those guys in the game. : /
Just a vested marketing interest? It's Kojima a good friend of Sakurai and the creator of Snake. Who wouldn't want to see their baby in Smash?

Well I rather have Sonic, Geno, Megaman, Bomberman, Pac-Man, heck even Snake and Earthworm Jim over characters like Toad, Birdo, Bowser Jr, Pichu, Zoroark, Victini, Funky Kong, Pauline, Tingle, Ghirahim and so on.
There are some 3rd party characters that are much better newcomers than some 1st parties in my opinion.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, I wouldn't go that far. The NA version is much edgier and I would be COMPLETLY pissed off if they have only the Japanese soundtrack. It's just boring to me.
I'm okay with 3rd parties as long as it doesn't get out of hand.
That means no Sora.
