And there goes the last vestiges of my enthusiasm for the Wii-U.

C'mooooonnnnn you gotta be kidding, what if they made it a launch title, and then next year they made some brand new games as good as Punch-Out!!? Heck, if it were a launch title, it would automatically kick out EVERYTHING new to the Wii U... unless DLC happened

Granted, there was almost nothing new and amazing on the Wii that was first-party Nintendo besides Punch-Out!!, so there's not a whole lot to compare the situation to... but man, it would've been well worth another year's wait for more Punch-Out!! presence in Brawl.


I guess it would be entirely on-topic to talk about what I want from Brawl that would be inspired by 2009's Punch-Out!!. I bet I've rambled on about this some time in the past but OH WELL I DO IT AGAIN

· Playable Little Mac is a given, of course. He doesn't have many of his own unique moves besides the Star Punch, but I don't suppose it would be too strange to have him borrow some of his opponents' punches like a quicker version of Bear Hugger's Bear Hug, a more streamlined version of Super Macho Man's clothesline, or a less fab-u-lous version of Disco Kid's counter.
· An item, the boxing glove on a rope used by Aran Ryan. I guess characters would swing it over their heads before tossing it, or maybe use it as a tether recovery, or whatever
· A stage set in a boxing ring. To call back to Super Punch-Out!!, Mario and Luigi could appear in the stands when not in play. Donkey Kong would have to appear back there as well. If Little Mac is in play, Doc would stand close to the ring, eating obscene amounts of chocolate, and Mac could do a Smash Taunt like Snake can in Shadow Moses Island and the Star Fox characters can in their stages. When he does, Doc would quip about one of Mac's opponents, like

On Mario: Hey Mac... bet you never thought you'd see Mario in the ring with you... again! Hahahaha!
On Bowser: Listen here Mac Baby, if Bowser kidnaps my chocolate bars, I'm countin' on you to get 'em back for me, okay?
On Wario: Hoo-wee, Mac! That's one nice bike! Think that when Wario ain't lookin', you can grab it for me?
On Zelda: It ain't nice to hit a girl, son. But maybe Princess Zelda will do somethin' about that for ya, ahahahaha!
On Pikachu: Hey Mac Baby, why you punchin' Pikachu? You don't know what it's like bein' picked on by somebody twice yo' size! Oh wait a second, maybe ya do! Hahahahahaha!

Etc.

And I guess the stage could be like Spear Pillar and have variations, the Minor, Major and World Circuit rings.

And there goes the last vestiges of my enthusiasm for the Wii-U.

I keep seeing this mentality pop up on the internet, and it cracks me up.  The system is 1+ year away.  No specs have been announced, no launch line-up has been announced, any games that ARE in development are at too early of a stage to show.  But tons of people online are calling the system a failure.  That would be like if I said "Man PlayStation 4 sucks, Sony really blew it there."  Or maybe "I can't believe what a piece of crap X-Box 720 is.  What a flop!"

They announced new Smash Bros..  It's not like they said it was X% complete or gave a release date.  Sakurai's stressed because Iwata made the announcement before he had a team in place, but also recognizes that this is a good way to get a team together.  Smash 4 (I like Rumble, do you guys like Rumble?  Super Smash Bros. Rumble!) is probably about 2-3 years away.  That's a long time, and I can't imagine it'll be available at launch (though I could definitely see Wii U getting pushed back), but it's good to know Nintendo recognizes what an important series this is, and is keeping it a top priority.

I think that some of it is because of the strange things that Nintendo actually IS revealing that are making people get up in arms.  Things like only one of the screen controllers per Wii U.  Like, even if you did have multiple controllers, only one works with the system at a time.  At least, I know thats my main moment of disbelief.

All we have to go on for that is a guy on the floor of E3 that said you can't buy them separately, and Iwata saying that it's capable of using multiple controllers but they're focusing primarily on single-controller games right now because of potential cost issues.

Ah, see, the articles I read said that the system was unable to use more than one, but now a quick search shows Iwatas statement that it's not the focus to have more controllers. Only slightly related, but that bothers me is that people excuse it because it would be too much to ask to have multiple streaming videos going. We were already doing this on the GCN.

Anyone who engages in local multiplayer isn't hardcore enough for the Wii U anyway.

Just Brawl? Dude you realize that the newest franchise represented in Brawl was ****ing Pikmin right? They should think about what they've created since 2001 first

Elektro-Plankton (or however you spell it) says hi.

Seriously though, they have other good franchises that need recognition.

I almost feel like the SSB series is the equivalent to a high school popularity contest in some ways.

I dunno... if it was, I doubt we'd ever have gotten the Ice Climbers before Meta Knight (among others).

It's one word. But in any case, I'm not sure a one-off "game" designed by some Japanese composer with a minimum release counts as a franchise. Then again, I suppose they had those DSiWare minigames, or whatever... Not that it was bad, though (although $40 was pushing it).

Let's have Capcom make it, and then Mario won't be in it :)   )

I thought of a few (non-technical) stats for Miis:

Moves:
Throw bowling ball (Wii Sports)
Wii Sports Resort saber\lance\sword\whatever
Jetpack (Pilotwings Resort?)

Final Smash:
Mii Parade

Stages:
PictoChat 2
Mii Channel
[someone else please complete moveset]

I got a better idea

Final Smash: Replace

The Mii gets a close up and in a booming echoey voice, says, "Don'tcha wanna play with MII?" Everyone else's characters become Miis. Forever. As in, if the other players were Link and Kirby, Link and Kirby are no longer in the game. For anyone in the world.

If I can't have the Ouendan guys fighting against Mega Man on F-Zero cars, I will not buy this game.

I'm not calling it a failure? Only that I'm not particularly excited for it, probably only about as much (or less) than the next Sony or Microsoft consoles. I think I'm perfectly justified in not being particularly excited about something that, so far, has failed to really make me want the Wii U.

That said, the news that it won't be restricted in terms of the number of controllers is definitely good. That would have proven a disaster for good ol' Ninty.



As for games since Brawl? The new Fire Emblem entry, whatever it is, looks like a cert to have a representative. It would be nice to have Captain Rainbow, but I doubt it'll happen...
