    NOOOOOOOOooooooooo, say it isn't so! an easier Smash Bros?! Slowed down?!?!? Smash Bros Melee was so perfect, messing with that is going to hurt us old pro's at the expensive of a wider audience.
    Then again I suppose getting everyone in my house to play would be fun, instead of just my girlfriend whenever she's round.

    No where in there does it mention that gameplay will be slowed down, just made a bit easier. More than likely, this simply means that it won't be so easy for characters to be "locked" into combo's that they can't get out of when someone is repeatedly hitting them. It perhaps it might be easier to perform some moves.

    Where does it say slowed down?

    And btw, the original Smash Bros was the same way. Electric Playground gave it a score of 2/10 calling it 'kiddie crap' and stating it was oversimplified because the players didn't have to memorize complex button combos :rolleyes:

    EDIT: Check out some of the sad comments.

    Sonic? Forget sonic.

    What about Mega Man???? He'd be the ultimate smash bros character!

    Make it easier? Wasn't it already easy enough?

    And why wouldn't they make a SSB for the DS?

    I'm hoping for maybe a Resident Evil char, since RE4 was such a big hit. My girlfriend and I are really going to enjoy this game, I'm glad to hear its going to be alittle more beginner friendly.

    they said that they're not ruling that out as an option, which means its possible...:rolleyes:

    and having Megaman would be alot like Samus(old one not the Zero Suit Samus)
    Sonic, Shadow, Tails, or Knuckles, would all bring a new aspect to the game because all those characters are waaaaaaay too fast and that'd be an interesting thing to see incorporated into it.

    I'm not really disappointed in this article in that I believe the learning curve of the controller will put an extra difficulty on the game....plus I'm sure they will have additional difficulty levels

    Thats the thing daddio, Smash Bros Brawl uses the Shell controller. apparently. The maker guy said he didn't want to change it too much.

    ... so dropping some 1st party characters, adding 3rd party characters and making it easier are fine to him.

    Hey, at least we can still play Smash Bros Melee in progressive scan, and without those crapping diagonal lines on LCD's through non-digital connections! w00ts.


    ... A little OT, but is the Wii the only 100% BC machine in the next gen? It has slots for GC memory cards and controllers, whereas the PS3 loses the rumble and memory card slots. And the 360 has a mini list of BC games. hmm.

    It just might be. An interesting reversal from the previous generation.

    I'm still going to purchase this game because so far the SSB franchise is batting 1.000

    it's so darn annoying when people finally saw samus aran for the first time without the suit, and have no clue who she is. all their minds are filled of that moment is..."can you be my girlfriend?" :mad:

    Well frankly, Suitless Samus appears in 1 Metroid game right? Even then it's at the end of Zero Mission. at first I thought it was Joanna Dark before the name popped up. I mean since when did Samus have a light-sword? (or Joanna for that matter)

    I thought that you could unlock suitless Samus in both Metroid and Super Metroid? Now I have to go look it up... EDIT: Did a quick Google, I definately remembered suitless Samus from the orig. Metroid, and confirmed that, and I could have sworn I've seen 16-bit suitless Samus, but didn't get any hits on that right away.

    So, armorless Samus in at least 2 games, if not 3.

    As far as I know, there'd be no weapons for her to use if she didn't have a light-sword or a gun. I mean, at least Peach has magic abilities, but samus without her suit has no super strengths. That's not to say that she couldn't beat someone down without her suit, but the suit plays a big role in defining who samus is.

    I also remember hearing about the use of the cube controllers with SSBS, so that's probably a good thing for those of us who are used to the control scheme.

    And a DS version of SSB would be totally awesome.

    Well, to be fair:

    Video game characters get new moves and weapons all the time ;) And that's fine. As an example, I'm pretty glad Link got his hookshot added at some point. Fun weapon.

    in the original NES Metroid, you could play suitless Samus.

    In Metroid Zero Mission for the GBA you can also play suitless Samus for certain parts.
