      1. Because Brawl is a super casual Game when you compare it to 64 and Melee.

        1. I’d argue that, outside of the floatiness and tripping, Brawl had better mechanics.
          Why?
          Biggest reason for me; no wavedashing.
          Doing an air dodge before your character is in the air, in order to slide?
          Doesn’t make physical stance, and made some characters potential broken, while at the same time alienating players that didn’t have the natural talent for such things even with practice.
          Brawl evened out the playing field.
          No tricks or traps, save for Meta Knight and how broken he is.

          Like

          1. Nothing is broken in Melee. Brawl is the broken Game. Mechanics like Air Dodge and Spotdodge are really stupid in Brawl. (Spamable [is that a word? xD) as hell).
            You have no Real Combos because hitstun is gone. Also there is a buffer system like Street Fighter and Tekken but the funny part is = Its in the Game because Sakurai didnt want the players to notice how bad the online mode is lol. Then you have Chaingrabs and even Infinites and YOU CANT (no matther what) escape out of those.

            Im not trying to offend you but to understand why Brawl is very broken you must have a very good and deep Knowledge of all the 3 Smash Games.

            Sorry for my bad english btw. :(

                1. Peach’s Dsmash was broken. Sheik’s down throw was broken. A lot of things are broken.
                  There are tons of broken aspects to the game.

                  There are also changrabs in melee, which is something to listed as wrong with brawl for some reason.

                  Melee is still a better competitive game, but not because of the things you listed.

                  1. OK Peachs Dsmash was broken. (But you can DI out of it). Sheikds down throw is good but not broken imo. And you can escape from “chaingrabs” in melee.

                    Like

                    1. So what if you can DI out of it? It’s not like you’re going to get hit by every single hit unless you crouch cancel. Just two or three is enough. The move fundamentally doesn’t work as it’s supposed to, it’s broken.

                      Also, no you can’t, any more than you can escape them in Brawl. A Sheik can 0-death a Fox with down throw. A lot of characters can do similar stuff. It’s not any less broken in Melee. Ice climbers can chaingrab to death in both games.
                      The only difference is that grabs are much easier to get in Brawl because that game has actual defensive options.

                      These are not reasons as to why Melee is a better fighter.

                2. “Wavedash/Wave shine isn’t broken”
                  Wave Shine a person in a corner for a while. See how that goes for the victim. By they time they can “escape”, their damage has already skyrocketed.
                  Even without a corner, it makes it simple to get them off the stage quickly.

                  Wave Dashing allows characters that would normally have to rely upon more clever timing to their dodges, to simply slide out of the way.
                  On top of that it’s a mechanic that makes no sense; doing an AIR DODGE before even leaving the ground.

                  “L-Cancel is not broken”
                  Makes it so that fast characters that don’t have many openings between aerials in the first place have almost literally none when used.

                  “Fox/Falco not broken.”

                  Research them more if you’re unconvinced.

            1. “Nothing is broken in Melee”.
              Apparently you don’t know why Melee is the origination of the phrase “No items, Fox only, Final Destination”.
              Melee had many different things that could be done just with Fox alone that could completely destroy anyone who didn’t play the same way. No significant retaliation chance, nothing.

            We don’t know how it looks, but at the same time it’s not an especially over demanding game.
            Either way it’ll be 60fps locked, so maybe they might decrease it to 720p just to keep the framerate butter smooth, which is way more important in a game like Smash Bros.

          3. The Wiiu can handle it. But If they do 720p 60FPS it will allow them to focus on other aspects of the graphics and get a locked framerate.

      Although i wanted to see the gamepad being used as sort of a way to interact with the game environment, like Rayman Legends but in a 3D game world.
      That could be possible though, just have a wiimote replace the functions in co-op. Co-op would be made as sort of semi optional, where it perfectly possible to play it on your own, but in co-op its more fluid, and more teamwork, even though you could do it on your own.

      As for the direction, i get the feeling Mario will be able to change sizes, and you see the game through multiple sizes, similar to how Katamari works.

      1. That’s an awesome idea. The Person controlling Mario uses Pro controller or Wii remote and Nunchuck. The secondary player has the gamepad and can tilt certain things and interact with certain things in a variety of way.

    I hope the Super Mario Bros. game doesn’t have the word “New” in front of the title. And Zelda, I hope it’s a completely brand new game that hasn’t been announced or shown yet. I’m still waiting for a Zelda game to top Ocarina Of Time and Wind Waker. Those two (along with A Link To The Past) are my favorites. Though Skyward Sword was good too.

    My BIGGEST wish for all Wii U games is that they don’t force motion controls on us. I always have and always will HATE the Wii remote. It’s the reason why the Wii is my least favorite Nintendo console. Although the Wii remote worked well with both Super Mario Galaxy games and Skyward Sword.

  20. Seeing a new 3D Mario, Mario Kart and Smash Bros for the first time will be enough for any Nintendo fan to be happy, but seeing them in HD with Nintendo’s attention to detail will make Nintendo fans go flip mode.
    The new Zelda is most likely Wind Waker, but seeing as we have not seen a video of this game yet will be enough to make it feel new. The games that will most likely be shown at E3 are:

    3D Mario
    Mario Kart
    Smash Bros
    Pikmin 3
    The Wonderful 101
    Bayonetta 2
    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
    Xenoblade 2
    Wii Fit U
    Retro Studios Title
    Yoshi Yarn

    That list alone is reason enough to be excited for any gamer who simply enjoys playing games of all kinds. Hopefully some third party games will show up like Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends, Assassins Creed 4, Resident Evil Revelations, Deus Ex etc and the Wii-U will have a strong software show. Maybe a few secrets as well from Nintendo fingers crossed.
    I still believe that the games released on the ambassador program as well as the Wii-U’s virtual console promotion will eventually show up somewhere and the fact that F-Zero was on both the 3DS and Wii-U gives me hope that it’s being considered at least. Not long left anyway and all will be answered.

    1. Even if by technological standards the Wii and Wii U were “less powerful” than your precious Xbox or the PS3, We still won and we will win this generation aswell…

    2. Microsoft makes the best games? Ignoring tharpt Rareware was happier with Nintendo. Also ignoring that Shitbox won’t give Banjo-kazooie and Conker IPs to Nintendo and Retro because Microsoft knows Nintendo knows how to make money off them and Microsoft does not.

  22. In my country the Wii U and its games are overpriced as hell, but knowing they will release such an epic list of games, I don’t give a damn I’m going to drop my wallet for this.
