i think smash bros does a better job of that.

ARMS is about picking your shots. If you miscalculate where your foe will move, you'll be left vulnerable, reeling in your arm while your foe punishes you.

Hasty players will get rekt.

The speed of the punches really should be at least twice as fast.

Wonder how much Twintelle weighs.

From the tiny leaks yonks ago I predicted robot bobby to be underwhelming, glad it turned out cool.

Lovin' the designs.

You should write them an e-mail. Better yet, tweet them.

You do realise your supposed to manually curve punches right? Theyr're the speed they are for a reason.

I'm sure you'll see worse (and fanart!) as time goes on. People usually think dancing is sexy.

Well someone's done goofed. "Switchforce out!" indeed...probably a little longer than expected though.

Anyway really like Byte & Barq and Twintelle. Nintendo character design top notch.

Smash is so different though. Smash is its own kind of fighting game. To me ARMS is about delivering clutch gameplay while slowing down the action with the flying arms. There's a lot of space between you and the opponent and it takes time for attacks to land. That means you have to calculate your moves and it's not as hectic.

If there's one thing I've learned since Overwatch has come out, it's that apparently there's some part of the video game audience that is unable to look at a video game character without thinking about fucking them.

I love the characters design but the more the game get gloser to be released, the more I fear for it. Hope it's not the kind of game that would be fun for like a few hours and dropped immediately.

Technically Nintendo started it with Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Like I find her hot too but I manage to not be a weirdo about it, it's really not that hard. It was pretty bad with Minmin already. I'm really interested in this game and its potential community but it seems like the OMFG WAIFU comments are gonna be unavoidable if I wanna seek discussion about the game, which sucks.

Relax. It's just a video game character. Nobody is hurting anyone. You don't think the designers didn't create her with the idea that people will find her sexy?

Feels more like Virtua On to me, which is awesome. They may be attached to you, but the gloves function more like remote-controlled missiles than actual arms. More about ranged combat.

Not sure what you mean. I'm talking about the inevitable fan art thread that will need to include a "Keep it safe for work!" tag in the title for this very reason.

yo. Like Overwatch set the standard for success. you need marketable characters. Here's a character list for success
  • Strong female type
  • Sexy female type
  • Stern, motherly type
  • Kid like female type
  • Strong male type
  • Lithe male, beautiful
  • Ninja male
  • Ninja Female
  • Wrestler, male
  • Wrestler, female
  • Superhero, male or female
  • Ninja rival, male or female

I could go on.

The Inkling Girl of Splatoon 2 is a PoC, which is more clear thanks to the Amiibo.

You're also forgetting about the Gerudo.
