Well it's been a while but I was too busy with school and the two new games that were released on the same day in the US: Super Smash Bros For Wii U and Pokemon OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire (I own Alpha BTW). Boy, these games were fun so let me talk about Smash Bros 4.

SSB4WiiU is indeed the superior version of this installment but that shouldn't stop you from getting a 3DS b/c you'll need a copy for 8-Player Smashes! There's a good chance that someone won't own two GC adapters or have enough controllers plus as I said, Smash on the go!

And as expected, it sold a lot. It is currently the fastest selling title (MK8 is now second) selling over 400,000 units of both digital and retail copies of SSB4. Heck, the GameCube adapter had a shortage upon release so Nintendo is now making more than expected!

With that said, here are some new things: Modes that appeared in Melee and Brawl but were absent in the 3DS version return, 8-Player Smashes (but with limited stages to select), the first game to introduce amiibo AKA Nintendo's attempt with toys being used for games, HD graphics but with team outlines like in the 3DS version, more trophies but with those based mainly on home consoles as well as making trophy collections and pictures using trophies, My Music returning along with Custom Stages, Special Orders where you complete missions to get items and gold, and Smash Tour which is Mario Party but with elements from Smash Run and the minigames being Special Smashes which occurs when two people encounter.

On top of that, the starting roster is now 40 (Ganondorf, Ness, Bowser Jr. and Jigglypuff are starters here) and there are 47 stages (includes Miiverse, the upcoming DLC stage) which most of it is new stages while containing some retro stages (mostly from Brawl, a few from Melee and one from the 64 version!) but there are no exclusive characters or assists in this version. It's said that there's no exclusive characters in the Wii U (yet it didn't stop people for asking exclusive fighters) but it was stated that Wii U ver. owners would get exclusive assists. But we didn't so no Isaac, Ray, or any others. At least there's the trophies, right?

And according to someone in dA, who gave me a link and interest to google about this, Mewtwo (and Miiverse probably) will be the ONLY DLC for Smash Bros 4. While many say SSB4 put Nintendo on the map and believe that DLC is their way to make the game even better, Nintendo and Sakurai aren't going to do the DLC route. While many would see this as a dumb move (about as dumb as removing story as some would say), just hear him out. Sakurai stated that this DLC is not a trend but an experiment. He KNOWS that DLC adds appeal and enjoyment to keep this game going longer but keep in mind, there is a big possibility of DLC criticism with people saying stuff like "cutting up content to sell other characters one by one" and "why wasn't this there from the start?!". On top of that, I and others aren't fans of DLC. Paying more for additional content? That seems kinda lame even if it's popular. And I doubt it'd be free because they announced that Mewtwo will be paid DLC in the future (also you have until March 30th, 2015 to register both versions of the game). While he and his team are looking at both sides of this issues, also remember that each characters takes a lot of time to make and the existing roster is fine as it is even though some of your favorites aren't in. They put all of their efforts into finishing the game and with DLC fighters, they'll need more people and money to make. It's disappointing but the hits beat the misses IMO.

BTW Mewtwo was part of the roster but wasn't completed in time.

Either way, the game is still awesome! 8-Player Smashes are fun and chaotic and it's just awesome! Go get the game if you get the chance!

So what do you think? Is it worth getting? Do you believe the Wii U has put Nintendo back on the map? And what are your thoughts on the "No More SSB DLC" story?

Remember Panel de Pon/Puzzle League?
There hasn't been a new installment ever since Planet Puzzle League for Nintendo DS launched in 2007

I'm not a fan of Panel de Pon although I would like to see Lip in SSB as a fighter and not just have her stick and theme and stickers and one or two trophies be the only thing to represent her series.
