The Smash reveal was the only good thing about Nintendo Direct really. Everything else was already known about except for the Donkey Kong game I think. But I will be getting a Wii U once Smash is closer to release for sure. Sony still dominated E3 this year, will likely preorder the PS4 pretty soon.

Some are even saying they'll name their character Crocker and their rival Turnner.

Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U looks amazing, I'm especially excited about Megaman being a playable character(when I first saw the video, I practically would've done cartwheels in the library if it weren't for those silly rules)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9S3GxFm ... r_embedded

And this made me roflcopter XD (and to make things funnier, she'll be a playable character)

A new type of Pokemon? Yea, I'm kinda glad now that I'm not getting the new Gen. Pokemon is now just a tired series to me.

On another note, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, and Mega Man in SSB WiiU/3DS? Interesting range of characters, but I must admit, the Wii Fit Trainer intro vid was hilarious. X3

They did new types in Generation II and no one complained.

I'm way too excited about this guy in SSB. I don't know why.

I really don't see the reason why some fans are against the Fairy type. I mean, the last time new types are introduced were in Gen 2, and we really need something to counterbalance the OP-ness of Dragon types. Maybe it's because people can't accept that Jigglypuff and perhaps even Snubbull would be strong against legendary dragons like Palkia or Dialga :lol:

I'm just glad we finally get to know Sylveon's type.

Well considering that the last new types were steel, flying, bug and dark, that was pretty major. Its not like dragon and ice can beat dragon and they have little resistance to everything else, most dragons have low defense anyway. But fairy type just sounds wrong, not to mention its pretty late to go, "omg a new type that was here all along" though granted that's happened with every new region and new batch of pokemon.
My point being that if it were generation three it might have been acceptable to add In more complex stuff, but now I can't be bothered with learning new types and the novelty has worn off.

That was Gen 2, and both those were direct counters to Psychic types that were needed. Dragon types are not OP. Also, Fairy? Meh.

But still, that's not the primary reason for me. It's just tired. My entire gaming self is kinda tiring at new games. I'd still just rather play older games than what's new... Still need to play the original Super Mario Bros...

From what I've seen, the new Zelda is a lot like a 3D version of Link to the Past. All the gameplay I've seen actually just looks like a 3D rendered version of areas from LttP. Still, I'll probably end up getting it, but it's going to need to show something more to come close to being as exciting as SSB4.

somehow people get a sense of self worth by faking things people want to hear or see. then I remember these are the people who realize they play way too many games and have no self esteem.

It has a Sealed campaign. Meaning you can make your own 40+ card deck but it must be out of 6 (eventually up to 9 if you unlock them) booster packs. To my knowledge those can be taken online.
