Honestly? I dunno. In about 6 years time, it won't have any value (new system generation and all of that), but right NOW none of the current gen systems are holding their value... At least to me.

SSBU is honestly the ONLY game i'd be even CLOSE to considering getting, but it's also coming out on 3ds so... meh?

Then the problem is you'd have to learn non-GameCube controls. As it stands, nothing comes close to how great GC controls are for SSB.

I never owned a game cube, so that ISNT a problem :P

Super hyped, and I don't even own a Wii U yet.

It's funny how so many wanted Chrom and they're just like "Nope. Instead have Robin and his FS shall be Chrom, lololol"

Still an awesome roster so far. They're up to 36 characters now. The only guys missing from Brawl are Ness, Lucas, Falco, Wolf, ROB, Mr. Game and Watch, Wario, Ganondorf, Snake, and Meta Knight.

Eh, don't hold your breath. Although it'd be pretty cool to have him back.

Well... there are MORE missing, but most of the other ones are in brawl's code, implimented but unused in character select screens (mewtwo, for one, was actually finished except for his audio. If you use the debug function, you can even play as him)

With the exception of Pokemon, Mario, Pac man, Mega man, and Legend of Zelda... all of them come from niche series.

Basically NOBODY buys Star Fox games despite it being ingrained to the zeitgeist. The ONLY game that sold any amount of "well" in Starfox was 64 - so are you saying we should remove falco and wolf? Or dedede and metaknight?

Actually, I'm not exactly hoping we get Falco and Wolf in their Brawl states (read: Fox clones; yes I know they had minor differences that did stuff at high-level play, and Wolf was at least a bit more different), nor Ganondorf as he was. Nintendo can do better than clone characters by now.

Meta Knight confirmed!

That just leaves Wario, Wolf, Falco, Snake, Ice Climbers, Ganondorf, ROB, Jigglypuff, Ness, and Lucas. Ness is definitely coming back. Ganondorf and Wario may make it too. I doubt they leave Fox alone, so at least Falco may join him soon. Jigglypuff, ROB, and Lucas might not make it back, but I hope they do. The more the merrier.

So the massive leak we had recently revealed a few interesting things. Namely, the possibility of the following characters:
  • Docter Mario (clone of Mario)
  • Dark Pit (clone of Pit)
  • Alph (as an Olimar costume)
  • Shulk (UBERHYPE, also apparently has like 5 modes)
  • Bowser Jr. (who has all 7 Koopalings as his costumes)
  • Ness
  • The Dog from Duck Hunt (wat)
  • Mr. Game & Watch
  • ROB
  • Wario
Whether the full roster pictures are correct or not is hard to tell because Photoshop OP, but the videos seem legit. There were also a few other people like Lucas (as well as some of the people above) that are supposedly DLC.

On another note, I hope this is true because Shulk seems AWESOME. In addition to having his signature psychic laser sword, if the leak is accurate he has practically all of his in-game abilities and the music that plays when he wins is THIS.

^There are feminists complaining about that already.

No Wolf, Ganondorf, Snake, Lucas, OR Ice Climbers?

Knowing Nintendo he'll probably be just as broken in SSB as he is in Xenoblade lol.

Eh. Depends? He probably won't be broken by the standards that they actually set for themselves.

See, the issue is that the game devs balance around the use of items... which the competitive scene absolutely abhors. If you look at the lowest ranked competitive dudes in SSBB, they all have slightly higher damage values for thrown and handheld weapons as compared to the top tier character.

As such, if he's broken, I'm blaming the competitive scene for demanding that a fun little romp of "princess peach exploding Solid Snake with her ASS" be held to a competitive standard of balance, rather than a more "fun" oriented sort of balance.

To be fair, I was talking about Riki. Riki's an Assist Trophy, so he won't be in competitive by the same crappy logic.

My friends and I, when we played Brawl, usually went Final Destination with no items. We started getting bored though, so we added in Smash Balls and that's a huge improvement in terms of dynamics.

After every hardcore tourney marathon we do an equal amount of time with all the items except the Kirby star and the flying instakill thing on in a custom map I made. It's a box with one tiny exit. One life. Go.
