Whobby 2008 Impressions

Post by MKDS_PoKE on Sat Jan 12, 2008 10:20 pm

As time goes, we are slowly getting these updates. I think now is a great time to post my impressions on most of them.

Update 1:
-Dedede is a heavy, slow, powerful character. He has 4 mid-air jumps (5 total jumps). His Waddle Dee throwing attack is weak. His Up Special has good knockback.
-Dedede's starting appearance is the Waddle Dee Shrine seen on the Dojo.
-Pokemon Trainer and King Dedede Playable! They appear as "Dedede" and "P. Trainer"

Heavy and Slow? Powerful? 4 Mid Air Jumps? Can you say upgraded bowser with a hammer instead of fire?

Update 2:
-Item Selection is ON. Smash Balls can be turned off.
-King Dedede has a pink costume.

Smash Balls can be turned off huh? Interesting, though I expected it. A Pink Costume? I've never seen him in one.

Update 3:
-UNCONFIRMED: Pokemon trainer's starting appearance is him running to a stop and taunting.
Roster Pic:

Interesting Roaster. Metaknight looks AWESOME.

Update 4:
-According to someone to who asked a Nintendo rep there: Brawl is confirmed to be released on the 24th. (Japan)
-Pokmon Trainer disappears on certain stages. He was not present on Delfino Plaza.
-New Pokemon: Shaymin

Shaymin huh? And if it's confirmed to be released in Japan, does that mean no more delays here in America?

Update 5:
-Meta Knight: No strong attacks. He's the kind of character that relies on multiple hits. FS is very strong and has a wide hitbox. Not much use for gliding. Taunt: Flaps his wings and does "warp" or some sort.
-Diddy Kong: He's very fast and can 'put hurt on you." He has combo attacks similar to meta.

Diddy Kong fast and can 'put a hurt on me?" We'll see about that. I wonder how could he is. MetaKnight was my ideal character to use, and he sounds good even though their are no strong attacks.

Update 6:
-Dragoon was seen as an item. There are also a few new items such as a time bomb and spike bomb.
-Onett and PictoChat are playable stages.
-Classic Controller and Wiimote are available controller choices.

Dragoon is not what I care about. VIDEOS! Jk. Onett huh? Pictochat, I can't wait to play on that stage.

Update 7:
-Onett impressions: Virtually no changes made.
-PictoChat impressions: Some are negative, some are "better than expected."
-PLAYABLE STAGES:Battlefield, Battleship Halbred, Norfair, Hyrule Temple, Onett, WarioWare, PictoChat, Bridge of Eldin, Delfino Plaza, Yoshi's Story, Smashville, Castle Seige, Pokemon Stadium 2, Skyworld, Lylat Cruise

Oooo stages that we already know of! Negative and better than expected impressions eh? No changes made on Onett? Why not throw in a Ferrari instead of those crappy cars.

Update 8:
-People are under the impression that Meta Knight is very good and Dedede is not. (This is only first impressions that are hours old and opinions, keep in mind)
-King Dedede has the same voice as his anime counterpart.
-70-80 minute wait to play a match.
-UPDATE: Female Pokemon Trainer news is confirmed FALSE.

Damn, one long wait. I didn't really care about the Female trainer... Anime voice.

Update 9:
-Muddy Mole is an assist trophy. (Not Monty Mole) Muddy Mole is a character from "Mole Mania", a GB game that Sakurai adores.

Lol muddy mole

Update 10:
-Conflicting News: Apparently, a Nintendo rep has confirmed that Brawl is coming out on the 24th in Japan, however the Brawl pamphlets handed out show the price of the game, but no release date. (According to the Japanese blog, this seems to frighten him, but I doubt it means a thing.)
-Pic of Stage Select
-Pic of Whobby event

Well, I doubt there is any chance of a delay. And awesome, pics.

Update 11:
-Link tried to FS an opponent who had a Starman and it failed. One time during Kirby's FS, Starmen were launched from the pot. The enemies used the Starmen and ended up KO'ing Kirby.
-Waddle Dees are better than turnips in terms of knockback and damage. Dedede's Suction spits out fast, but not very far and has low damage.
-Samus cannot missle cancel. Peach can float cancel.
-More reports of Dedede being very slow with fast atacks, but a conflicting report of his Waddle Dees being useful and spammable.
-More PT Impressions: Charizard's has multiple jumps and his Fly is powerful. He flies straight up and burns anything around him. His flamethrower is identical to Bowser's Fire Breath. Squirtle's Water Gun is chargable. Ivysaur is immobile while using Bullet Seed. PT's FInal Smash is very powerful.
-The PictoChat stage sometimes has impenetrable walls and can trap you on a side of the stage.
-DK's Final Smash used correctly can take up 90% of a stage. His FS was originally thought to be ineffective.
-Some people worry that the Smash Ball occurs too much.
-Rumors of Black Charizard. Some suggest a very dark Chrarizard that is near-black.
-PT Impressions: Squirtle has fast attacks, but no reach. Ivysaur is the more balanced of the Pokemon. Charizard is heavy, medium speed, and attacks using claws and tail mostly.
-Pokemon trainer's starting Pokemon is random. So far, it's unconfirmed if the starter can be selectable like Shiek was for Zelda in Melee.
-Dragoon does 42% damage. It KO'd Mario at 0%.
-Lots of Invincibility frames when switching Pokemon.
-Dedede's Suction is beastly because of it's force and strength.
-Ike is being called a noob killer. His Side Special charged can KO Kirby and Meta Knight at 35%. He is being called "too powerful".
-Meta Knight is a good beginner character.
-Ike Impressions: Eruption has a lot of range and can be used in the air. His Final Smash has more range if you "charge it up"?
-Ashley Deconfirmed! She appears in the WarioWare stage. So does 9-Volt and Jimmy.
-Kirby Impressions: Final Cutter has been changed once again. More confirmation of Kirby sucking up items.
-Attendee's Opinion: Pictochat music was bothering.
-Dedede Impressions: Attacks are fast, but hammer is sluggish. As stated before, his Up SPecial has good knockback, but is completely vertical, like Ike's.
-Pokemon Trainer Impressions: Takes about three seconds to change Pokemon. Colors: Red, Green, Blue, and Black & White (original GB version). PT's Pokemon do not have accessories like hats, glasses, ect.
-First reports of an attendee: He writes about Samus, but adds nothing new to what we already knew. You can't turn into ZSamus at the start of the match at all.

Wow, it looks like Ike is actually being called better. That's great since everyone at E4All said he was terrible. Conflicting reports of Dedede though, and a mess of good news for PT!
