In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Let The Hate Mail Begin

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.
