????? Big Blue is a masterpiece of Smash stagery! It's one of my all-time favorites.
That was a joke.

Ah, perhaps my views on Big Blue are somewhat biased: Luigi can't recover from his side-B fast enough there. But still, items rarely stay still there and the constant rightward movement is tiresome.

Poke Floats > Big Blue only because of all the giant Pokemon.

Oh, how the times have changed.

Wario with a fart attack?? Nintendo's been reading too many Fungi Forum Stories.But oh crap, he's wearing his Wario Ware gear. I want just Wario... maybe his normal clothes will be an alternate outfit for him?
Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

Times and people change. What a narrow-minded little kid I was!

On a similar subject, I've begun to believe the entire concept of hypocrisy is based on people wanting to ignore the fact that people change. "You were wrong at some point in your life. That gives me every right to be wrong today."

Ups:
-Fun new stages
-New characters
-A trip down nostalgia lane
-Sonic :o

Downs:
-SSE could have been so much more
-Online play is a bit laggy
-No voice chat for online play
-A lot of characters are clones (like three different variations of Fox?)

1. How so?  I thought it was pretty good (apart from the lack of voice-acting).
2. Yep.
3. Meh.  I don't really feel the need for it.
4. I supppose Falco and Fox are pretty similar (even then there are a few differences), but Wolf is an entirely different character.

Actually, I found the lack of voice rather nice. Many of the moments in the story could have been ruined with voice-acting if you ask me.

For example: Fox's silence when he was being dragged away by Diddy was rather priceless.
I'm a horrible person.

Well, yeah.  They don't have to have voice-acting in every part, but the pantomime got old after about the 5th scene.

Yeah, but how many Nintendo characters can talk? Imagine the the scene where you first meet the AM. Now he's flying down and Mario says:
"It's a you, the Ancient Minister! Why did you-a come here? I'm a gonna destroy that a bomb there. HERE I GO! *Gets hit* MAMMIA! I'M BLASTING OFF AGAINNNNNnnnn!!"
Bad interpretation, I know but another reason they didn't have voice acting. When the characters that CAN talk that are next to the ones that CAN'T talk, it would look really crappy. Just imagine Snake and Mario together (Even though they never really interacted with each other) and while Snake can give long, long, pieces of dialogue, Mario just stands there. It would be awful.
I really don't care much for logic.

Touching quotes from the exciting masterpiece that is the Subspace Emissary:

Kept you waiting, huh?
C'mon!!
GREEEEEAAAAAAAT AETHERRRRRRRRR!!
PK Thunder!

They're all mimes. It's fine that way. Dialog would've lessened the value of the facial expressions and probably wouldn't have been that

"Porky. You rook good."
"Ness! Cough... what are you doing here?"
"I came to get you, roozah!"

great anyway. And the lip syncing would be terrible, as if certain victory poses don't give us enough of that.

Well, my favorite scene from the Subspace Emissary is "Wario Messes with King Dedede." Wario's expression when he sees that Luigi and Ness are alive, and on King Dedede's side. Ness's expression when Wario is driving up the stairs on the Wario Bike. Fantastic.

Tabuu looks too much like the Silver Surfer if you ask me.

By not being so gullible. Even then it won't be unlocked, however.
