Correct me if I am utterly mistaken, but I seem to remember reading over and over again about how in Australia, games are always released way late, and we never get them, and bla-bla-bla.

And, correct me if I am utterly mistaken, but Super Smash Bros Brawl, was supposedly in the above category.

Of note:
QUOTE
"Yahtzee graciously brought along Wii Freeloader and his copy of Super Smash Bros Brawl, and after what seemed like an excessive amount of effort to setup, we finally had the game ready and running with 4 gamecube wireless wavebird controllers.

Regardless of who was playing at any given time, the majority of expletives being yelled out were usually attributed to no-one knowing what the hell was going on. Frith found the chaos appealing, Yahtzee found it retarded. Most of us were not Smash Bros series connoisseurs by any means, but the pure random mess of the 4 player battles didnít do much to win us over. Sure, there were moments of fun, but on the flip side you spend half the game trying to keep track of where your character is, let alone what it's actually doing.

Sorry fanboys, but with the exception of Frith and Phil, we all found the game too random and too chaotic. And yes, the levels are a nice nostalgic trip for a long time Nintendo franchise player like myself, but any positives in that respect are totally overshadowed by the fact that you canít play as Sonic until youíve played either 10 hours or 300 matches.

What. The. Fuck.

Forcing players to unlock characters, game types, levels or features that are ADVERTISED SELLING POINTS of a multiplayer game is about as popular and equally craptacular as Video Game disc jockeys and Quick time events.

Verdict: Fanboys only

Maybe genuinely playable by kids with ADD drinking shots of redbull and vodka, but for our group of 20-something year old piss heads it just gave us a headache."



So... Will we see a Brawl review sometime soon?
My guess is yes, but I will be sad because Yahtzee will shit all over it.

Thoughts.

Maybeeeee we'll get a SBB review.

So far, other gaming forums are being the game's bitch. We'll find out what kind of review Yahtzee is doing, tonight.

Yeah, my guess is tonight... er, this afternoon too.

But then again, I have horrible predictive success in these matters.

Well, it's a pretty fun game. It's got better characters, maybe not as nice levels, cooler items and online play, the only thing that sucked was Subspace Emissary.

I am not a fanboy by any means, but I did enjoy Melee. I don't own Brawl (or a Wii, for that matter) but it really didn't take much research at all to figure out that you can unlock Sonic by finishing the Subspace Emissary, which is much, much faster than 300 matches.

But yeah, I don't see Yahtzee liking it at all. Maybe he would if Gordon Freeman was a playable character?

Me too. I never shelled out the cash for the Wii.

Brawl never convinced me I should buy one. I loved the N64 version more than the GCN version, and I feel Brawl will be to Melee as Melee was to the original: just a bunch of extra characters and levels, more flashy chaos.

On a different note, I heard Wario can fart on people as a move. This alone, if nothing else, warrants praise.

Of course everybody expects Yahtzee do to Brawl, so what game do you think he's going to avoid reviewing?

Gordon Freeman in SBB?

As long as he has that cock-eyed exp​ression, Gordon Freeman can be the only selectable character in SSB for all I care.

Actually, that would be fairly funny--4 Gordon Freemans crowbaring each other.
