I swear that if Mewtwo isn’t revealed to be in the game until the version for Wii U is released, I will start questioning if someone else would be a better director for the next SSB. I don’t want to babysit a palette swap just because he became a Sakurai’s character. Falco over Wolf? Lucina (who could very easily be an alt) instead of Roy? The most popular Pokémon in the West after Pikachu, being heavily marketed in X & Y, not being playable even with the whole fandom screaming for him? What about Kid Icarus having 3 reps and Mother losing one? Mario with not 5, not 6, not even technically 7, but 13 reps (1 being a clone and 7 being alts), and Pokémon (the second most popular franchise in the world after Mario) with only 5. No Shiny Lucario or Charizard palettes. I can understand the absence of the Ice Climbers and Duck Hunt was a good replacement (HE IS CALLED MR. PEEPERS BTW, just in case 99% of the internet plans on calling him Duck Hunt Dog forever) and also Squirtle and Ivysaur, as they’re not as popular as Charizard to survive without the Pokémon Trainer. But also… Game modes dropped and good ideas not implemented.

"Stop whining the game is perfect and I would ride Sakurai’s dick."
Well, good for you. I was sent the codes for the demo and I’ve been playing the game. It’s pretty impressive what they’ve done with the graphics, the balance (even tho I think Link is kinda OP now) and everything in general. But this game is far from being what it could have been. It feels incomplete to me. The roster feels incomplete, certain things feel lazy, certain decisions feel odd (why include Palkia and not Dialga, for example, or the absence of Isaac in in 3DS version, or why mix the old stages and new stages all in the same screen, and why pick certain stages from certain games instead of other potential stages that respect the console where they originated, like Magicant instead of a stage from M3 which was actually from a handheld). Also it seems that no Pokémon spin-off matters. No Mystery Dungeon scarf costume for Pikachu, for example. No stages from spin-offs ever appeared. Not even a trophy of a Pokémon Ranger.

Sakurai is needed for Smash, but if leaving him in charge of everything means some stupid decisions, then I’d rather see someone else leading the Smash team. Hopefully I don’t drive anyone mad with my opinion <3











Watch it in video


No this is not funny.

Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.

Doesn’t matter. 

These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.

No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.

For wanting to play games. 

For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?

This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.

This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.

do people not understand how much video games cost?

Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.

do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you

It doesn’t matter what it is

It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe

If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it

This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it

That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things

dont do that to people


I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.

I have a plush rabbit that I’ve had since Easter of the year I was born (I was about 2 months old when I got it). It quickly became a comfort thing for me and I used to go everywhere with it as a child. When my mum and dad split up was when I became kind of dependent on having it around.
If ever I did anything wrong mum always threatened to take it away from me, which obviously caused my 6-year-old self to kick and scream and cry because I needed it.
One day I lost it for 6 or 7 months (turns out it was in my room the whole time but shh it was very well hidden & neither myself or my mum know how it got there)
That was the point that my mum realised she couldn’t threaten to take it away because holy shit I changed so much in those months.

Seriously, if your child is dependent on something, or takes great comfort in having it around
It does not matter how old your child is, what their comfort item is, if it’s a video games console - don’t take it from them. If it’s their phone - don’t take it from them. If they’re 18 and still sleep with a teddybear - don’t take it from them.

This also goes for if your child is self-harming. If they have a blade in their bedroom and you find it DO NOT THROW IT OUT. Talk to them about it, be as supportive as you can, but do not think “oh well if I get rid of it they’ll be fine”. It can be seriously distressing and also lead to them becoming creative with what they use.
