    That's fine, take your time guys... As long as it also helps you be more creative with the sub header text. I swear, if I see another sub header with the word "smashing" in it....

    --take their time? --you've never even played a wii? --what are you gonna do with a wiiU review?

    Someone hasn't read my comments :P I've told you for a while now, that I got a Wii for cheap since August. And anyway, even if I don't play the game, I can have fun reading some Wii U reviews, can't I?

    You went too far with that last one, but i wouldnt be surprised if the rest of them were used :P

    OH YEAH, SO EXCITED Too bad it comes out the day I'm heading out of town for a break though. I guess pokemon will tide me over till I get back.

    It still amazes me that Nintendo can force their hardware to do shit the Xbone and PS4 are struggling to keep stable. Goddamn, if Nintendo were to make a console that's as powerful as Xbone and PS4...

    Good thinking! Im already pretty hyped and excited for the game, i really like how 8 player smash is a thing the game is embracing by putting over 5 match ups throughout the modes. and dont get me started on the music, OH SWEET LORD THE MUSIC Its a heaven of remixes, over 300 music by default and still a ton more to unlock via CD's and with stage builder, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. SANDBAG FACTORY 2.0 BABY

    I hope you guys address the many control options in the review. I want to hear about the GC adapter and I also want the official word on the WiiU Fight Pad.
  • shawksta - November 19, 2014 9:59 p.m.

    You mean the Gamepad and Gamepad controller pro? Its basically just as great as the 3DS minus the fact that its the 3DS and an actual controller.
  • brickman409 - November 19, 2014 11:09 p.m.

    well there's also the GameCube controller
  • Vonter - November 22, 2014 11:27 a.m.

    Also the DK bongos work for some reason.
  • brickman409 - November 22, 2014 9:29 p.m.

    really? that's kind of cool, but how does that work?
  • talleyXIV - November 24, 2014 4:14 p.m.

    It doesn't really work at all. It is more a joke novelty, you can hit the "A" button and the "B" button but that is about all.
  • talleyXIV - November 24, 2014 4:16 p.m.

    Gamecube adapter is the best value if you already have GC controllers. $20. The GameCube controller is the best by far for handling the game but the Wii U Pro controller is decent as well. The Gamepad isn't too good for this. The Fight Pad (I am assuming you are talking about the Mario/Luigi/Peach plug in controllers) is okay but you have to plug it into a Wii-Mote and the analogs are a bit stiff. I would recommend the Gamecube controller.

    Thank you for writing a more complete and less stupid review than the one written by the bastards at IGN.

    WHAAAAT? Amiibos are not a lot more than glorified figurines? COLOR ME SHOCKED. Seriously, anyone who ever truly expected amiibos to add any significant value to any kind of gameplay experience is an idiot.

    Holy shit An actual good game this month that isn't plagued by bugs and rushed through the door.
