Microsoft’s Official YouTube Channel was showing off Halo 2 Anniversary, when I noticed that one of the employees was wearing a Smash Bros T-Shirt. You can see it at 0.25 into the video.
Lol...well, super smash is pretty fun and competitive, so I'm not surprised.
What you need is Phil Spencer and Kaz Hirai "settling it in smash"...that would be epic. I'll play winner.
They dont consider Nintendo a rival.
MS and Nintendo should join forces.
Nope. A role model..
they tried to buy them before & nintendo laughed them out of the office Then they designed thier consoles based off nintendo consoles ( yes, x360 was an amplified gamecube acc to the people who designed both and bought by microsoft, i don't have to mention RARE etc on software side
They honest are not rivals. Only Nintendo gets FULL or close to full third party support like Microsoft and Sony does ... they are just not in direct competition. Huge Nintendo fan here but it's true.
lol who honestly approved this?
Slow day at N4G I suppose.
Everyday is a slow day around here but damn do I love it.
Breaking News: Sony employee caught looking at Xbox One products, public beheading demanded. That wouldn't surprise me haha!
Because...everyone is hyped for Smash Bros.?
-Melee elitists -People who don't own/want a Wii U -The "TEH WII U IS DOOMED!" Crowd -(If they exist) Brawl Elitists
As a Melee elitist, I'm really looking forward to this Smash.
As a Brawl Elitist, I can confirm that there is no such thing as a Brawl Elitist.
As of right now I have 8 agrees and 7 disagrees. Kinda surprised. Was under the impression that the people that were aware of the game were pretty unanimously hyped. Interesting.
they should add Ranked matches to SSBWiiU
It's called For Glory mode, dude. Check your global Smash power ranking.
Dam, its like im in multiplayer heaven between MCC and Smash Bros.
Yeah. And next year will be Halo 5 and Zelda U O_o My feeble brain can't handle it
Smash Bro for Wii U will have no online issues and bugs during launch guarantee! Nintendo never will release a first party game that's a bugfest on release or even require a patch. Super Smash Bros Wii U will get game of the year guarantee! Yea.
Sarcasm isn't appreciated. The game is definitely going to be experiencing server overloads on launch day; it's too popular not to. If you don't want to get caught up in the problems, I suggest you get your Wii U hooked up to some internet with a proper cable instead of relying on wireless.
the fact that they have the pre-load will help a lot. That way people that buy digital wont all be doing so on the same day. One of the reasons MCC put some strain on servers was also that massive day 1 patch which i doubt Smash will have. Im hopeful they'll prep.
You should be more careful with what younsay, especially regarding Nintendo and online play. Smash Bros Brawl was completely broken in the online department. It was unplayable for almost everyone. So, let's hope you're right, and the Wii U version actually works online this time around.
The Wii Brawl online was not ready for a fighting game online. Wii U is ready. My body is ready!
Why is this news? Is there some way to report irrelevant articles? I could care less what shirt someone is wearing.
I have never understood the hype for Smash Bros, that doesn't mean I don't respect it, just don't get it.
It's the most enjoyable fighting game out there, has a ton of content, and is accessible to anyone with two thumbs. The gameplay differentiates itself from almost any other fighting game out there, it's chaotic (in the fun way), it has great music, tons of characters, heaps of customisation options, etc. I can understand why you might not like the game, but commenting that you don't like the game is probably one of the reasons you only have one bubble (not hating, just advice).
In fairness, RiPPn didn't say he doesn't like it, he says he doesn't get the hype for it. I'm in the same boat, as I have never played Smash Bros. (maybe not my genre?) but then again I bought Bayonetta 2 to show support and found much to my surprise that I LOVED that game. So ... Smash Bros. will likely hit my list too, eventually.
I like it when people from certain companies enjoy other companies' games.
The only real feud in these "console-wars" are the overly-emotional gamers who cling to their company of choice. I'm a Nintendo fan; but I don't parade around MS and Sony articles to express my hatred for them - because it doesn't exist, and even if it did, that'd be stupid. The potshots the employees in these companies give each other is playful banter and nothing more. Yes they're competing, but not with guns and bombs.
I like your comment a lot therefor I give it a bubble. :p
thats because they don't hate each other like us dumb hard core gamers!
lol well said
Youre absolutely right. If anything they are laughing all the way to the bank at how engrossed we get on which console is better. I know they compete for business but they never say anything bad about each. At least not on the hardware front. Some game developers talk trash but MS, Sony and Nintendo seem to be perfectly ok with where they all are in the grand scheme of things.
@MSHOPE & MSBaustx: I know right..... it's easy to see that Wii U is the BEZT conzole! LOL..jk.... settle down, fanboys!
@ Guru How in the world is what I said Fanboyism? All I said is that regardless of the competition it is us fans who argue about which is better. The companies dont seem to care or trash talk the way we can at times. So why dont you worry about yourself and not accuse people of things that you know nothing about. Settle Fown Troll.
