@Jayvir I disagree. They should get the ball rolling now so when Smash 4 likely takes over for Brawl, MLG can continue with Smash 4 and Melee. Project M will likely never appear on the circuit itself, that's why they are using it only at these grassroots events. Remember this isn't the actual Pro Circuit.

This is really tickling my Metroidvania fix, shame that it's a long ways from release but otherwise super exciting and hoping to contribute to the kickstarter soon! Looks like a great game with some cool Metroid elements worked in. Glad that Super Metroid seems to be a direct inspiration for these guys. I really hope that the game plays a bit faster than it looks, it looks like it'd be fun to speedrun.

Good thing I saved myself with that list because I only listed off two good 3DS games at first lmao. Great discussion guys.

@Paleselan It's not. That's why I said it was a carry-over from last week's nintendo download.

@VenksDunson @plsburydoughboy @TheRapture To be fair, every Zelda character in Brawl is absolutely garbage (save for Toon Link, who is just okay and requires a lot of camping to be truly good) so there isn't much comparison. Whereas in Melee, Sheik is leaps and bounds better than Zelda and Ganondorf actually has some viability, too.

Sheik should definitely return, it'd be a disappointment if she doesn't. I'm fine with the transformation staying the same, but being separate characters would be nice too so they have a functional down-B.Also, that looks like an Assist Trophy, not a summon. Still, cool screenshot!

I'd probably have to go with Pokemon X and Y. While I was a die-hard Pokemon trainer up until the fourth generation, for whatever reason Black and White (and subsequently Black 2 and White 2) didn't do anything for me. I felt like I had grown out of the series, and likewise a lot of the additions to the series at that time just didn't appeal to me. But, when X and Y came out, I got right back in. The game's graphic overhaul, addition of a new type and Mega evolutions, and a new pool of Pokemon that didn't add upwards of 100+ Pokemon at a time like B/W did, it all culminated in an amazing experience and is why X version is housed in my 3DS more than it is anywhere else.
You just can't beat Pokemon.

Nintendo should seriously focus on the longevity of their console, especially in relation to the new consoles coming out by Sony and Microsoft. People need to know that the Wii U isn't just going to collect dust in their closet. They can do this by two ways - highlighting the console's established library, as well as upcoming titles, as well as focusing on the capabilities of the Wii U that make it a mainstay of the living room - Off TV play, Nintendo TVii and the universal remote, etc.
People should know that there's new Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, etc. in the works, but they should also be shown that those games can be easily downloaded off the eShop or played solely on the Gamepad or played with up to five players (in some cases) at a time. These are fundamental yet extremely unique and awesome features that the Wii U has that nobody has any idea about. Many still think the Wii U is just a new Wii. If Nintendo doesn't make sure they don't think that way, there isn't anything that will change that.

@matthewwesley85 @vVvRapture Has no personality? That's not the Samus I know. Metroid Fusion gave us nice tastes and tidbits of her personality, if anything. Gamers want characterization, but not bad characterization. Other M would have been fine if Samus wasn't terrible conceived, the dialogue atrocious, etc. Who said it wasn't what we envisioned? No, it went completely against every other Metroid game before that. Unlike Samus, Link literally has no characterization. At least Samus had some in Fusion and the Prime trilogy (more towards the end), and at least she had some bad development in Other M.

@matthewwesley85 @vVvRapture I understand that. I don't necessarily agree. Just because you experience the game through Samus doesn't mean she's a puppet character or simply an avatar for the character in the world. Link is more of that type of character, not Samus.
@TheVideoGamHer This is something my friend constantly suggests to me and I'm inclined to agree. Both an original adventure and this one would be great.
@matthewwesley85 Since when was Samus a dummy character?
A new way to play 3DS games? I'd be sold if I didn't already have a 3DS of my own but considering I hate the 3D function, I likely would've waited for the 2DS if I knew it was going to be produced. I don't travel much with my 3DS anyway so it never needs to be in a pocket and honestly I couldn't shelled out less money for the same experience since I, seriously, *never* use the 3D function. But, alas, I'm waiting for a Smash Bros 3DS XL bundle if that happens.That being said, the 2DS will be a success for Nintendo as far as I'm concerned. It's more accessible to new buyers than the 3DS is, its less prone to being destroyed by a kid than the regular or XL 3DS., and apparently it plays pretty well. I hope this works out for Nintendo because I've always loved how many different variations they make for their handhelds and I want it to continue.

@guest As someone with first-hand experience working with and in the competitive community, I simply made my case on a subject I felt was important from an alternative perspective. I'd like to think this was completely above and beyond covering my ears, and I'd also like to think that it is not the prevailing status quo that this person's comments are not subject to rebuttal or criticism. Do people not criticize Nintendo entirely despite the "reality of the situation" almost all of the time? The low-hanging fruit was easy to pick.

@Alienfish I really hope Miis don't join the fray, having generic avatars would be terrible and a custom character creator would...well, I know casual players won't care but Miis would def be banned at tournaments and IMO would be a waste of a character slot.But Reggie? Well, if ROB, Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, etc. can be in Brawl and Smash 4, why can't Reggie? I'd love to see a fully-modeled, "my body is ready" Reggie with a Regging Demon Final Smash. Smash has shown any character or really any thing can be a fighter, why not Reggie?
