The biggest news to hit about Smash Bros. yesterday had to be the inclusion of Pac-Man—and boy did people have a lot to say about it.
For some, Pac-Man wasn't a surprise addition to the roster: Namco is involved in Smash Bros. development, after all. Even so, folks seemed to react strongly to the Pac-Man reveal. Some seem happy. Some seem a bit mad that a slot is "wasted" on a character like Pac-Man. And some are content with cracking jokes about it all.
Here's some of what people around the web are saying about Pac-Man in Smash Bros.

And yes, people had stuff to say about Palutena too. Most of it seemed focused on her butt, thanks to how she was revealed:
Not everyone, though...
What about you, what do you think about Smash Bros' newest characters?
