Why does this website hate Smash?

Same reason it hates most everything else Nintendo.  Because Nintendo.

Umm... yeah, what?

Smash is trash though.

True, and I especially dislike Ultimate for taking up so much time in Nintendo's presentations (watch their reveal at the VGAs this year be another fucking Smash fighter instead of something actually worthy like Bayonetta 3 or BOTW2 gameplay) but still, sales are sales.

I guess the gameplay of Bayo 3 and BOTW2 will be up to PlatinumGames and Nintendo, respectively.

Raise your hand (PG and Nintendo) if you're ready to show more gameplay of your upcoming games..??

We'll just have to see if they're ready to show more. If they're not ready, then they're not ready.

Anyway, congrats to Ultimate. Well deserved and props to Sakurai and his team!

If a game like Ultimate leads to sales like this, I think these games deserve the attention.

A crossover that matches up to the likes of Avengers, Justice League Unlimited, Godzilla vs. King Kong, and the Universal monsters of the early-mid 20th century.

There is no way in hell Bayo 3 is not ready to show by now when it's been in production for over two years, unless they straight-up lied when they said earlier this year that development was going well and it's in fact gone completely off the rails.

I know people don't like Smash, but this is the biggest crossover in video game history, maybe in all of entertainment. I don't think anyone can blame Nintendo for constantly showing it off. A franchise that started out as a simple brawler of a handful Nintendo characters then becoming the biggest video game crossover of all time. And to add to that the biggest fighting game series ever, beating Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and more. 

I get that it's big, I just personally find it annoying that even a year after its release they're still likely going to take up precious time in a major presentation just to show DLC for a game I don't give a crap about instead of stuff I desperately need to see like Bayonetta 3, BOTW2, or an exciting new game. I'm willing to bet we don't either any of that at the VGAs, just Fighter 5 and indie crap and probably a boring old port/remaster like Metroid Prime Trilogy HD.

Its not like them showing off Smash Bros Ultimate DLC means no Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, or BOTW 2 footage though, they don't correlate.



Currently Playing: SSB: Ultimate Splatoon 2, LoZ: Breath of the Wild, & Fortnite

GREAT! Now where's Crash announcement??

I'm almost willing to bet that they will show the former at the VGAs as their big announcement, but none of the latter. It's like a get-out-of-jail-free card for them, they can throw us a smash character to shut us up while holding back on actual games we haven't properly seen yet.



I love both Smash Bros. and Street Fighter, but Smash has a special place in my heart.

Me and my friends loved to play Smash 64 back in the day. It was just a lot of fun.

Then that's up to PlatinumGames. So Nintendo cannot really do anything.

Nintendo is funding and publishing Bayo 3, it belongs to them. If they want it shown, it'll be shown. But they won't, because they are obsessed with holding back and being pointlessly secretive.

Not only is Smash trash, it's also not a fighting game.
