Just to set things straight there...

It seems to me that the only reason people are clamoring this much for Pikmin 3 is because Olimar was playable in Brawl.

I remember very well that before he was announced on the Dojo site, almost nobody even gave a rat's ass about the Pikmin series.

And then when he appeared, oh now it's suddenly up there with the big boys?

Just thought I'd set the record straight.

Apparently you never went to the pikmin 2 board.

I was disappointed with Olimar as a character for Brawl. Not that he was included, mind you, but his move set and attacks suck.

I've been awaiting a Pikmin 3 since the Wii was still referred to as the Revolution or whatever its code name was. Brawl has nothing to do with how much I'd like to see a Pikmin 3. If Brawl managed to generate more of a fan base for Pikmin, then I suppose that's a good thing and I don't mind. Sure, they might not be "true" fans, but at least they create incentive for Nintendo to continue the series and keep putting out Pikmin games I'll enjoy.

I've cared a lot about the Pikmin series ever since the first game, back in '01.

Nope. Although I didn't quite become a fan of Pikmin until the second game, I really got hooked onto both the games for years to follow.

Not to sound like a hipster or anything, but I was ecstatic when Olimar was announced for Brawl. He's still one of my main characters whenever I play, but just because he was in Brawl doesn't mean that's why I'm excited for Pikmin 3.

I've been excited for Pikmin 3 ever since Pikmin 1. Actually, that's a lie. Ever since I first beat Pikmin 2 I've been excited for a third game.
To the bitter end

It wasn't Brawl that made me want to get Pikmin; it was Chuggaaconroy.
Are you kidding me? What could possibly go wrong?!

I was a Pikmin fan since the game came out in 2001, and was looking forward to Pikmin 3 when Miyamoto announced it for the Wii a long while ago. Having Olimar in Brawl simply sated me for a while. And as far as his character in SSBB is concerned, Olimar has good attacks, set-ups, and pressuring tactics, and an insane grab; it's just that his recovery is downright atrocious and easily gimped.

EDIT: Of course in Brawl- / Brawl+, it's a different story! >_>

I've been wanting Pikmin 3 since I beat Pikmin 2. And I think Olimar is a good brawl character; for his up special, I usually use it for the added height it gives on courses with ice ledges.
:-] Pikmin 3. Pikmin 3. Pikmin 3. Spread the word.
