Hopefully if they're not making these anymore, Nintendo will make it possible to use the Gamepad/Pro controller for Wii mode VC games? Because otherwise, all SNES, N64, and some Genesis/TG16 games will be rendered unplayable.

Just for the record, I have few problems with the current announced GBA VC lineup. I'm somewhat surprised there's no Fire Emblem game included, though that's not really an issue for me since I own both Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones. I'm also somewhat dissapointed that there's no import titles in sight, but that's nothing new for the VC.

YEAH, TAKE THAT, HATERS!

Good to see another character frequently predicted to be cut is sticking around. With him and Toon Link back, the pool for plausible cuts is shrinking really quickly.

Oh, and this does NOT disconfirm Mewtwo. Calm yourselves, people.

Subspace Emissary was pretty wretched. The story was horrid because nothing was explained, and the gameplay was tedious. I'm glad it's gone, because if SSE is Sakurai's idea of a good story, then it's better that he spend his time on more fruitful efforts.

Very true. I may not like Awakening that much, but in the end that's my opinion. The same goes for people who do like it.

From what I've heard, Ni no Kuni definitely deserved that win. Though I honestly don't see why anybody cares about the VGA s since they're basically a popularity contest.

@Red_XIII
You mean Awakening? Well, for one the story is garbage. The enemies are all cartoonishly evil, the Valm arc had nothing to do with anything, and the Avatar is a stupid self-insert Mary Sue. All the characters are one note and annoying. There's little to no actual character development throughout the game. As for the gameplay, on the harder difficulties whether you are successful or not basically boils down to whether or not you get lucky. Oh, and the Avatar is broken as all hell. Let's not even get into buyable Rescue and Nosferatu.

Keep in mind this is coming from an FE fan. I've played almost every game in the series(haven't played FE1 or 10 yet).

@Tsuchinoko
Both of the people who I responded two did not simply say "I thought Awakening was great, and IMO it should have won." Read through their posts again. I'm not reacting to people liking the game, I'm reacting to people acting shocked that Awakening didn't win.

And I did shoot down other games. I noted that Pokemon X/Y have flaws and aren't objectively great/masterpieces either in one of my earlier posts.

@bizcuthammer
I can easily see why Awakening wouldn't have won(aside from this being a popularity contest). The game is a bit to easy to break, the story is quite weak(especially compared to previous entries in the series), and the characters are all one note and don't undergo any sort of development.

Pokemon X/Y aren't some sort of unrivaled masterpiece either. While in terms of mechanics it's quite good, the story in this generation is generally accepted to be inferior to the 5th gen games.

@LunaticPandora
I'm aware that teenage fanservice is more prevalent in Japan and is more socially acceptable. That doesn't make a difference. They're releasing the game for an international audience, so they should be prepared to deal with the standards and cultural norms of that international audience.

@DarkKirby
You do realize that a review is effectively just an opinion, right? So, if I played the game and the aesthetic legitimately hurt my enjoyment of the game(perhaps all the fanservice made me uncomfortable, which wouldn't be out of the question since as I understand most of the girls in this game are young teenagers), is it really "biased" to put that in my review?

And saying that men are "objectified just as much of women" is a false equivalence because male anatomy is exaggerated for different reasons than female anatomy is.

I guess they've never heard of Android.

Anyway, I don't dispute that video gaming consoles in general are on the way out(PC gaming is getting easier and easier, and console makers are slowly forgetting the advantages that consoles have over PCs), but I don't think it will happen this generation, and I sure as hell don't think that a freaking iPhone gamepad will change that.

@DarkKirby
Why? Why should we cut the series original main character, and one of the few Lords to remain a main character across multiple games, in favour of a one-off character who :
1) isn't even the main character of her game
2) may or may not appear in another game

@Jazzer94
Well he is a clone, since he takes Link's attacks but puts his own spin (hurhurhur) on things. Though I agree it's not really something to be concerned about. Toon Link being a clone isn't going to stop Sakurai adding this or that character if he feels they're worthy.

@mamp
The only thing "limiting" about the 3DS is it's processing power, since it's CPU is apparently even slower that the Wii's. the only thing in smash that this could possibly affect is the IC's, since their partner AI eats up a lot of the CPU apparently.
@Snkfiend
None of the well-know Melee Advanced Techniques are glitches. L-Canceling was an intentional gameplay feature that had been around since Smash 64, and Wavedashing was a result of the game's special landing animation working as intended by conserving momentum on landing.

And again, if you don't like playing the game with these techniques, then nobody is forcing you to use them.

@DarkKirby
OH NO, 1 CLONE CHARACTER! CLEARLY THE ROSTER IS BEING OVERRUN WITH CLONES!

Seriously, it's like some of you people who complain about Smash clones have never even looked at another FG roster. Brawl only had ~4 or 5 clones out of almost 40 characters. Plus, unlike other FGs, all the clones in smash are at least variations on different characters rather than the same character.

@Snkfiend
Oh, I'm sorry. Did somebody force you to play Smash competitively? No? Then you shouldn't give a s*** how other people play the game.

Anyway, if a SSB4 mode would have been anything like SSE then I'm glad they removed it. SSE was garbage, and it took time away from other parts of development. Hopefully the removal of SSE means they have more time to work on stuff, including other 1P modes like Break the Targets.

@Snkfiend
1) Not all of the characters that have been revealed were guaranteed to return. Toon link in particular had a lot of people expecting him to be cut., as did Olimar to a lesser extent.
2)It gives Sakurai a chance to show off any changes made to the characters since Brawl.
3)This is the same way things happened with the Brawl Dojo. IIRC after the initial trailer there wasn't another newcomer reveal for several months.

Anyway, this confirms that Sakurai doesn't feel the need to follow a "one reveal per month" pattern and instead reveals characters coinciding with important dates(i.e. anniversaries, launch days).

@mullen
But, will there be a free trial every time there's a new game launched? Also, what if I don't get X/Y near launch?

I'm angry that, as I said, they're taking something that has been free for every Pokemon game since Gold and Silver, and making us pay for it.
