  1. Claude beat Demitri, Mega Man wasn’t on the list, and a side character from an indie game made by a millennial was. The human race has lost.

  2. And yet Kirby’s so low tier in Smash, its unacceptable in my opinion.

    I haven’t played Ultimate, and I’m not sure I will this time around. It just seems like I read too often that there are a few tiers of characters that make playing anything under said tiers unpleasant or feel pointless. Idk, maybe I’ll give it a go and feel for meself.

    1. It’s the most balanced cast yet, really. There’s not even the universally agreed upon broken fighter (like Metaknight Brawl, Bayonetta Smash 4).

      Tiers are kinda dumb anyhow. All it would take is for one talented individual to win some tournaments with Kirby and suddenly he wouldn’t be considered low tier. Tier lists are more based off pro statistics than actual potency of the fighter.

  3. Claude and Dimitri have held on better than I thought. Fire Emblem characters don’t typically stick around in these Nintendo Dream pools yet they’re holding on even with the high from Three Houses going down.

    Not that I have a problem with that. They’re both my new favorite Lords in Fire Emblem now. :)
