I'm too good for media coverage...
Where is Ike? I've seen game-play trailers and new screen-shots all over the place. Haven't seen Ike at all.
I blame it on Sonic! Maybe...people see his blue, messy hair and think..."sonic....more sonic...post about sonic....upload game-play footage of sonic..."
I even saw some game-play. Right before they start the match, Ike was selected, but some retard from Gamespot
or somewhere changes to Sonic instead.
Maybe he's just too good for media coverage. When is the last time you played a good Sonic game? When's the last time you played a good Fire Emblem game? Clearly, "good game" and "Sonic" should never exist within the same sentence ever! It's probably grammatically incorrect by now.
Yeah, yeah. Sonic did have some good game..a few decades ago! But greatness can easily be cloaked by mediocrity if you just keep piling it on. Sonic's once great name is now stained because of that and I honestly don't see why anyone cares for him anymore.
Ike's the character I'm looking forward to playing as the most. I do believe Nintendo said that Ike would be a heavier fighter (not my playstyle) than the likes of Marth and Roy, but I was okay with that. I love Fire Emblem. Ike wasn't necessarily my favorite Lord, but he is probably the most powerful out of all of them. I say that because you have to fight the last boss in Fire Emblem 9 alone with Ike, rather than develop some complex strategy to win with your whole team. Then again, the last boss in Path of Radiance wasn't a three story tall dragon.
Roy and Marth were my favorite characters in Melee. I'm going to be seriously pissed off if they don't make it back into Brawl. When Ike was announced as a playable character, I really took it as the greatest news about the game, for me personally. I thought that if Ike could make it, perhaps other Lords from Fire Emblem games could make the roster as well. I was really expecting someone from Fire Emblem 7...perhaps Eliwood (Roy's dad), Hector, or Lyndis...
I want to play too...
And she did make it...as an assist trophy! I'm being pretty ridiculous when I say this, but I find this insulting. I was not a happy camper that morning when I woke up to that RSS feed. Lyn was an amazing character. Hundreds of characters from the games would have made good trophies.
I'm over Lyn...I really am...mainly because of the possibility that Nintendo will make up for this horrible atrocity.
Two characters from Fire Emblem I do hope make it, are Eirika and Ephriam - the siblings and Lords and from Fire Emblem 8 (Sacred Stones).
I'm not getting my hopes up just in case Nintendo decided to make an assist trophy out of them as well. On top of Ike, Marth and Roy, I do expect at least one more Fire Emblem character to make it on the Brawl roster. By the time it comes out, Fire Emblem 10 (Radiant Dawn) will have come out so we might see someone from that game like Sothe, Sothe would be interesting since he's a thief/assassin class character...he wouldn't play like the others at all.
I love to say this, but I'd absolutely love a Fire Emblem only fighting game. Maybe like Smash, but not exactly the same. You could then go for more of a traditional fighting game model. If you've ever played any of the games in depth, you'll find you tend to get very attached to each one of your units. You'll turn crazy and start talking to them as if they can hear you...yell at them when they miss an attack - howl is agony if one dies..and you then promptly restart the level or turn off the game and stomp out of the room. Okay, maybe that's just me.
Anyhow, Fighter Emblem
would be a sweet game just for the sheer amount of characters you could play as. The starting roster could be huge and with Connect24, you could add more and more. I'm dreaming of course, but that is pretty much one of my dream games. Rutger
was one of my favorite swordmasters ever, I'd kill to play as him in a fighting game. And Fir
, and Zihark
, and Nephenee
, and Lucia
. It's a pipe-dream of course but whatever. Maybe Nintendo will wise up and take advantage of this opportunity.
Okay, I'm done. That was really long for stupid rant about something insignificant. I need help...
I commend you if you read it all. read
