My suggestion was good too, right? :-/

At least it wasn't a goddamn Kanye West reference.

This one is good.

The 90s will go down in history as that sweet spot in history where you could put a blonde pony tail on a robot.

EDIT: should have scrolled down.

Megaman makes it into Smash, but can't do it in MVC, amazing.

SolarPowered came in clutch. I had like 20 seconds to do the thread title edit from the one I initially posted with but I got it in.

Yeezus prays for you Karst. The Lord is merciful though, and will allow everyone to still eat.

I don't even know what Yeezus means, and don't tell me. It's probably another piece of pop culture crap that I'm better off not knowing about, like Friday.

omg fulgore and zero are both cyborgs with pony tails lol what the hell

I'm only realizing this now.
Kick's post made me realize it. He is half-redeemed for his opinion on Dark Phoenix.

I think it means Kanye's son. I don't know. I swear everyone started using it when Kim turned into a milf.
The Almighty had a daughter, not a son.

yay more bad hip hop love on gaf. Kanye, Kendrick, next thing you dudes will be all on Snow's tip.
Yeezus prays for you too. Holy Water can only do so much when the Devil has you calling the biggest selling hip-hop artist last year as Pitchfork rap though. But Yeezus, He who does not discriminate, prays for all the stuck in the 90s ninjas out there too.

Friday is one of my favourites of all time. I wish Chris Rock would get off of his ass and start working on the newest one though, because Cube and them won't be waiting around forever.
 
Friday is awesome and shouldn't be lumped in with Kanye.
That song has ruined all of the following for me:
"It's Friday!"
"I'm so excited!"
The word "Friday".

Edit: LOL, people think I'm talking about the movie "Friday" (which was boring). I meant that annoying song.

Chris Rock? Wha? And there is a song called Friday? I didn't even know.

Save me .yeezus
 
Enzo, you are a good guy, but between Iron Man, Kanye West, and being an XBot, you make me sad.

I remember when I thought Killer Instinct 1 had good graphics.
For an SNES game, don't you think it does? I'm still impressed by it.

It's Chris Tucker and Chris Tucker is the WOOOOOOOOOORST
Chris Tucker is the worst, are you kidding? Have you not heard of Martin Lawrence? Now that is terrible. Chris Tucker is passable in comparison.
 
What if they merged the Friday and Rush Hour universes ? And Chris rock showed up. Chris rock from lethal weapon.

It would be like mvc4.

I was really confused what this thread title could mean. "Nintendo's patching SSB...?" Then I realized it is just Megaman.
 
Fulgore - 90s robot built by americans

Zero - 90s robot built by the japanese
If only Sentinel had a blonde pony tail.

[QUOTE="God's Beard!";64178166]It's not like Killer Instinct has interesting original characters. The whole game is a piece of shit, always has been.[/QUOTE]
That's rare's MO. They've always had shitty characters. The gameplay and graphics were usually great, though.
