FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Let The Hate Mail Begin

Posted on Wednesday, March 12 @ 21:48:42 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
It happens every time you give a beloved Nintendo franchise anything lower than an A+, but at least it's not me this time. I'd like to point out that a B+ is a very respectable grade around here.

I might also mention that we have nothing against Nintendo. We're not haters. Chris Hudak was also the reviewer who gave Super Mario Galaxy an A.

While Melee was a clear upgrade on the original (raising the grade from a B to a B+), Brawl just didn't add enough new stuff to the game to warrant another bump from a B+ to an A-. The core mechanics remain the same, the online play is gimped by Nintendo's friend codes, and while there is more, it is simply more of something we already had.

The Wii can still play the Gamecube's Melee, and frankly it's just as much fun.

Still bug testing the new servers, fingers crossed we can switch over tomorrow. Oh, and they announced Bioshock 2, so that's cool (if predictable).

Heated discussion to begin below this line.
