While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

A Letter to the Big “N"

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

What do these ratings mean?

What can I say about this game?  It's been in that goddamn purple lunch box half of the time since I bought it.  It's great.

In 1999, the makers of videogames at Nintendo wanted to answer an age old question: "Can Yoshi kick Pikachu's ass in Sector Z?"  Then, it happened: Super Smash Bros.  Personally the one game that's made me more happy than any other game in existance, the origional game showed me the world of Nintendo, hell, it introduced me to Earthbound, a game that I thought was for madmen.  (Face it, they'll release Mother 3 when hell freezes over.  And I really would want it out, personally.)

Then, 2 years later and countless dead Pokemon buried, they thought it was time for a sequel.  Back again this time is 25 charecters (14 from the get-go).  It used to be all about the big guns, now, Mario and Link got "friends" (like Bowser and Zelda...).

What can I say about the game?  The single player is SLIGHTLY better than the last one, I DO get a feeling smashing Goombas and Koopas as Yoshi or Bowser... but the reason you should get this game is the multiplayer.

There is a great reason why I'm giving the score what it is.  First, with the new charecters, I can play now as Dr. Mario and Roy, two fighters that've joined my roster of charecters (I also used Yoshi [because I'm a jerk] and Samus [because I'm psycho].)  There is a tournement mode now, so I can have those 32 man tournaments that I needed to have last time, and there is so much customization.  They took a good game and made it AWESOME.

It's not legendary to win a A.  But if I don't I'll disgrace the game.  So, I'll flip a coin... it's heads.  Fine, I'm off to smash that !$!% Sandbag... and I'll see you all online.
