Darunia/Goron Rolling Attacks + Musou Gameplay = GO FAST AND KILL EVERYTHING

Seriously, if the first gameplay video of Darunia isn’t him rolling over hordes of enemies while GOTTA GO FAST plays I’m going to be sorely disappointed.

reblog this post to honor Enoby’s brave sacrifice, ignore if you’re a prep or a poser

I also need to stress how excited I was to find this in good quality scans, because I’m pretty sure I actually ruined my copy of this issue of Nintendo Power reading and rereading this section over and over and over.

Looking back, it’s hilarious to read through it all because of how much wrong information there is. Still, a fun trip down memory lane for those interested!


Who the hell are Capt. Falcon and Ness? I can’t believe these nobodies got in instead of beloved characters like Bowser and Princess Peach! WASTED SLOTS.

I can’t believe Black Canary is Thor now.

If Thor being a lady offends you because Thor can’t be a lady, and Captain America being a black guy offends you because steve rogers is captain america, you probably deserve to be offended.

How can you…

The other problem, ultimately, is that as cool as it as to have a Batman Beyond-type scenario with old Steve Rogers serving as Bruce Wayne to Sam Wilson’s Terry McGinnis and having savage berserker Thor and mysterious new Mjolnir weilder, these changes won’t last- they’ll go right up until Age of Ultron is released and Marvel, terrified of confusing potential customers will de-age Steve Rogers, re-worthy Thor, Sam Wilson will go back to being the Falcon and depending on who the female Mjolnir weilder is, will either hang around for a while or fall into obscurity. The last time meaningful title changes occurred between superheroes was the transition from Golden Age to Silver Age. Hal Jordan came back from being a supervillian, Barry Allen, Superman, Captain America, and Peter Parker (Superior Spider-Man, not Ultimate Spider-Man) came back to life, and Bruce Wayne was merely sent back in time.

Hopefully there’ll be some cool stories to be had from these changes (like Superior Spider-Man, Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne as Batman and Robin, Bucky Cap, etc.) but it’s really hard to feel much besides “editorial/marketing said it would be good to push for a black/woman version of [superhero] for a while to reach out to new demographics”, especially when the headlines read “New Captain America is black” rather than “The Falcon takes the title of Captain America”.

Also, this is semantics but it bothers me that the new female Mjolnir weilder is called “Thor” when that’s his name and not a title. Beta Ray Bill was still Beta Ray Bill after he got his own hammer and Throg was Throg. Also, no Captain Falcon jokes? I’m shocked.

It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.

calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.

Allow me to look into my crystal ball and see what the future holds for these characters.

I see… I see the #1 relaunch issues (perhaps .1 issues?) with these characters having massive sales numbers before experiencing drop-off to pre-relaunch numbers, perhaps even lower… I see Thor and Captain America, along with whatever other heroes are replaced in current storylines, returning eventually… sometime around the release date of Avengers: Age of Ultron… I see Sam Wilson returning to his Falcon identity with nothing to show for his tenure as Captain America, and the female weirder of Mjolnir will fall somewhere between Beta Ray Bill and Valkyrie in terms of popularity/obscurity, with a few scant references of their tenures thrown into the main books until someone, years down the line, attempts to re-invent the main Avengers again, at which point these stories are almost completely forgotten for the sake of hyping up the new characters.

Much like how Marvel has already introduced other black Captain America characters in the form of Isaiah Bradley (who has a really interesting backstory which is effectively the Marvel equivalent of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study) and his grandson Elijah Bradley, a.k.a. Patriot, formerly of the Young Avengers, who in taking up the mantle of Captain America would not be simultaneously removing the presence of another black superhero, like Falcon.

May their tenures at least be as entertaining as the Superior Spider-Man.
