ALSO???? remember when the pic of the day that showed off Zero Suit Samus’ alt costume(s) came out

and people were justifiably criticizing such a fanservice-y costume and talked about how it didn’t sit well that Samus could have an alt like this but you couldn’t put Link or Marth in little…

BOTH COSTUMES ARE CANON TO EACH SERIES YOU FUCKING RETARD

yes, thank you, that’s very charming

of course they’re both canon, I never said they weren’t. the issue is with what aspects of canon the Smash devs choose to represent, because believe me, nobody from upper management in the company was standing over Sakurai’s desk and demanding he give Samus some short shorts. until Shulk’s alt costume, the problem that I and many other fans had was that they deliberately chose to give Zero Suit Samus an alt outfit that exposes more bare skin than a human character has ever shown in the Smash series, and she was the only character to get a costume like that.

i wasn’t even criticizing Samus, though, the whole point of the post that you added such thoughtful commentary to was that I’m very pleased that the Smash devs found a referential alt costume for a male character that bares as much skin as an equally skimpy one for Samus. so. there’s that.

and I wasn’t aware it’s mandatory to reaffirm you know every alt costume is a reference to something in a character’s series every time you talk about Smash designs, thank you very much for the heads up, i’ll be sure to file that one away somewhere important

i could probably have just copypasted an image of somebody blowing a raspberry here though and i’ll get the exact same response from you either way so i don’t think i’ll be going into any more detail unless you’d really like me to, thanks

Now EVERYONE is fair and equal.

uh, well, i wouldn’t say that

there’s still the anatomy issue, Samus is still really bendy and twisty and arched in ways the human body can’t actually be, whereas Shulk seems to be formed like a perfectly normal human

you can still absolutely criticize Zero Suit Samus and how she’s portrayed and what she represents, I’m not saying that everything is fixed and okay now

I just feel better about her now that there actually is a male character in the game who also has a little booty short alt costume, which is something I didn’t expect to see happen in a million years

that was absolutely a legitimate concern and I felt the same way but LOOK AT THIS ALT OF SHULK’S

I’ve never played Xenoblade and I don’t give a shit about this guy but I do give a shit about a male character having an equally revealing alt costume!!! wow I feel so much better about Samus now!!!

this is the actual title of Shulk’s reveal trailer sooo they basically just came right out and said “hey guys the leaks are totally legit enjoy your Duck Hunt Dog”

I SHOULD BE IN BED

I should be in bed because I have to get up at eight tomorrow to catch a bus to my retail job but instead I’m drinking Pepsi straight out of a two-liter bottle and watching clips from The Office on YouTube without a shirt on

I feel like the goddamn archetype of a twentysomething in 2014 right now
