Smash Bros. Brawl psyches up

Smash Bros. Brawl psyches up

The final countdown has started : only a little week before the official launch of Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the american territory. To celebrate this important milestone, I took dozens of recent screens posted on the Dojo, the official website, and shares them with you. Beware, many of them contain spoilers.

Now I need to get my hands on a Wii

Wow! Can't wait for this game. I have Wii, unfortunately I don't have any GC controllers. Are the Wiimote/ Wiimote Nunchuk controls as bad as people are saying in other forums? If they are, it means I must go online and cash out extra money to get the extra controllers just to play this game.

Lucario (ルカリオ, Rukario?), known as the "Aura" species of Pokémon, are the evolution of Riolu. They have the ability to sense and read auras emanating from humans and other Pokémon, allowing them to understand their thoughts and movements, and understand human speech. [3][4]

Lucario appears in the eighth Pokémon movie, Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, where he is a servant to a nobleman named Sir Aaron during a time of war. Being close friends, Aaron traps Lucario in a magic staff in order to save him, though Lucario just thinks that Aaron betrayed him, so he completely loses his trust for humans. After being released by Ash Ketchum, he begins to trust him, eventually learns that Aaron meant to save him, and sacrifices himself in order to save the Tree of Beginning. Lucario also appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an unlockable character.

If that turns out to be when we get it....that'll be sad news. I'd rather wait three years for mario kart and get smash bros soon.

I can imagine the long wait is really due to the fact that you don't just need games to sell, but consoles to sell with the games. Nintendo diverted shipments to Japan when they launched SSBB simply to maximize the amount of gamers who'd be able to play it. Hopefully they've got a similar strategy for the US and other regions. It's not easy supplying at this high a demand, especially given that the US tends to buy the bulk of everything. Then supplying for as large a region Europe at the same time would be ridiculously hard.

Why is this person's opinion hidden from view? This is what I hate about this site.
But back to the comment. I agree. I do hate what Nintendo is becoming. They are neglecting their hardcore masses and settling on making amends with their cash cow Mario, Zelda icons etc etc. When are they ever going to create a new and refreshing I.P like the Nintendo of old? They should at least bring Punch Out back or something. Something new would be nice. Not rehashed incarnations of Mario. I hate to say it, but they pail to the Nintendo of old now. They've sold out to the brand name they seek to be. Like Iwata said in a keynote when Wii was still in the making that they are taking example from the likes of Apple and Pepsi. Great. I grew up a Nintendo faithful. I'm losing that faith. The Wii has been a disappointment for me. I was expecting a lot of games with 1-2-1 control methods. Instead they are mostly gesture based, which is bollocks.

^^^^^

I find their games to be fine. Their games are still better than most high profile games in the industry. The only thing I don't like is that they couldn't optimize the controls of this game with the Wiimote. I don't mean I want gestures for this game. I just want the game playable with at least the Wiimote. The message I'm getting with this game is that "YES! The controls suck, so go buy the GC controller if you want to have fun with it!!". Anyways, I'm not disappointed with the Wii. It has fulfilled what Nintendo promised from the beginning.

*note: I still can't wait to try this game out!!! ^_^"
