The Smash Bros. week

The Smash Bros. week

Like every week, here is a summary of the updates on Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Dojo. Monday, a new game mode has been discovered - the challenges, which unlock, on a grid, some trophies, music and stickers by completing precise objectives (ex: complete target smash one with ten characters). The hardest windows can be broken by a hammer power-up, but remember that some of them will resist this tool (continued).


Tuesday, character Olimar's level has been discovered : it is called Distant Planet. On it, monsters roam free and the weather is random. Wednesday, Zelda's transformation (down B) has finally been confirmed after all the rumors about this subject. Thursday, it was Olimar's turn to have his Final Smash presented. He escapes with his shuttle and creatures attack the other players. Friday, Smash added a great RPG element with the use of stickers on your characters trophy base. Each sticker has its own attributes which will be added to a fighter's power. This caracteristic offers strategy which will only be applied through de Subspace Emissary mode. Have a nice week!

I never understood why Zelda transformed into that ninja thing. Could someone link me to the explanation or just sum it for me?

Sheik, from Ocarina of Time.

Sheik is a character in Ocarina of Time, and is an alter ego of Zelda. In the game, Zelda passes herself off as a Sheikah known as Sheik. With her voice muffled and face concealed, as well as wearing a form-fitting blue suit with the red Sheikah eye in the center, the character is essentially unrecognizable as Zelda.

Sheik plays the harp and teaches Link new songs to help him on his quest. When Link arrives at the Temple of Time near the end of the game, Sheik uses the Triforce of Wisdom and reverts to Zelda. It is claimed by the character's trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee that she uses her magical skills to change her skin tone, hair length, eye color, and clothing. In addition, when hurt, Sheik is voiced by a female voice actor in both Ocarina of Time and Super Smash Bros. Melee. However, when Link encounters Princess Ruto in the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time she asks Link to thank Sheik for saving her and refers to Sheik as "him", and the non-canon manga for Ocarina of Time suggests that Zelda used the Triforce of Wisdom to actually become male while disguised as Sheik. Zelda herself apologizes for "meeting Link in disguise," though this could indicate both a magical transformation or a simple costume.

Sheik also appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in which Zelda can change into Sheik as one of her abilities. According to "Smash DOJO", her new design in Brawl is based on models created for consideration in Twilight Princess
If I resume, it is to hide from Ganondorf

Ah, that explains it. I didn't play Zelda until TP. Thanks.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (46 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
