Point being: he's in, he's strong, he's a badass. /argument
He was more of a "clone" in melee than he is now, and if you want to start complaining about clones, we an go into the specifics between Ness and Lucas....
Seriously it's too late to complain about it. If it bothers you that much ,then just don't use him and play with CF instead?
I mean hell there's plenty of "clones" that people haven't even begun to bitch about: tp/toon link,lucas/ness,pikachu/sonic (same final smash)....I could go on for pages here folks.
But instead of fixating on the negatives of the game I think I'll just enjoy the hell out of it instead..
I mean really guys; they criticized SMG, they complain about Brawl, they whined about Zelda...Did they give halo 3 this much flack? What about MGS4? (I'm sure game mags have had a chance to play at least a semi-complete demo by now).
Do the other companies get their killer apps bashed as often or a frequently? Because it sure seems like there's no shortage of people willing and eager to nit-pick at every conceivable flaw in Nintendo's titles no matter how awesome the games may be as a whole.
I think we need to take a time out from the flame bashing and just enjoy these games for what they are: Fun.
