@maxwellGT2000: that's kinda sad, the match records gave a nice feeling after the match me and my friends had a great laugh at our numbers, or tried to use it as an argument on how close the match was and that I almost nailed my superior bro etc...

They had ridiculous complaints about the game. Things like "I can't see my character" and "There is no strategy to this" and "Subspace emissary sucks for having unique content." No, I have no desire to ever visit that worthless site again.



@Joeron
OH those stats, those are in the game like always, I thought you meant like world wide stats and such.

Gamefaqs is full of fanboys who review games for other systems and Melee tourney gamers who are still being whiney bitches about the removal of their game engine exploits. None of its reviews are worth reading. After hearing IGN's podcast I've lost all hope in there being a such thing as a good review source anywhere. I've decided reviews aren't worth anything, even in the content, because IGN just proved that you don't have to know shit about a game to review it our bash it. Thanks IGN in destroying my faith in gaming media forever.

Yeah I was kind of mad at that, but it may also be that A Matt wasn't there to balance everything out like he usually does, Bozon is very critical of games and even if he's bashing it he really does love it, the other guys are stupid and not even reviewers so don't worry about them, if you look up the antcipated games of 2008 they all have Smash as their title, and they love it they were just getting a few nags out there, or non reviewers just being like the rest of the complainers out there.


Fran is the one who reviewed Melee.  Here's the really retarded part: he praised the Adventure mode in Melee but said SSE sucks in Brawl?  What the fuck?  SSE does everything Melee did better.  Yeah, I'm tired of IGN.  They weren't a few nags, there were ignorant jackasses. 

They said wavedashing was like snaking and they don't use it.  WTF. A) No way ignorant boobs who think Smash has no strategy and is button mashing know how to wavedash.  B) How is it in any way like the simple left and right boosts of snaking, and C) It's not even in this game you dumbasses!

Now I know what PAL gamers feel like. At least the Japanese get to play it....maybe they are just coming down from the high that is WAITING FOR SSBB.



@Naz
Yeah those comments pissed me off too, but A 99% of those came from everyone but Bozon which is the only reviewer there so I took it with a grain of salt, the guy who said "I couldn't see my character" sucks at games I've seen videos of him on the site, so he blows don't listen to him, the only one that used to be a reviewer and plays smash was the guy that plays Peach and he didn't have any complaints other then he's going to be like the rest of the pros and turn off the cheap items. Anyway usually their podcasts don't suck that much and usually don't have the idiots in them, its usually Bozon and Matt with Matt being the up kinda guy and Bozon bringing in what could have been better side.

 Fran reviewed melee? What part was that? Yeah Fran usually sucks though I really don't like listening to him so I kinda skip around it.  There is a lot of stratagy to Smash Brothers I don't really see where a lot of the compliants came from myself, I did hate this podcast but I do know none of those people in there except Bozon are not even remotely related to reviewing the game and usually not in the podcast, thats why I say take it with a grain of salt, their boards are probably bashing the hell out of them right now, they'll get the point.

I'm just tired of review sites in general. So much fluff, and so much focus and stupid crap like technical performance of a game (No More Heroes) and not enough focus on fun. They never know their audience either. It's like they are purposefully completely out of touch with the target audience of the game. Besides that I often find that I love games that got mid-range reviews (Baten Kaitos) and hate games that got really high reviews (FFXII, Oblivion)

I just can't think of any time in my life that listening to a review has ever done me any good. Even the content of the review is clearly unreliable when people who think Smash is a mindless button smasher (Bozon said this) are allowed to review.



Hmm, I thought he said Matt treated it as a mindless button masher because Matt sucks at Smash Brothers, I'll check again, but I think that's what he was referring to. And yeah I'm 100% with you on the reviews end of things, but I am understanding of the reviewer, the way I go by reviews is on whats written down, videos, and the media they post, if they got a complaint that doesn't apply to you it shouldn't stop you from buying it, then you got to remember they're people too with their own opinions and it's hard not to be bias, the best thing to do is find a group of reviewers that best reflect your ideas on gaming and stick to them, but even then only pay attention to what they say not a score.

And even with the complaints at IGN you gotta know they ranked it 3rd best on Wii only below SMG and Metroid Prime 3 which they loved both of those games a lot, and also went on to say the reason for that was SMG gave a new experience to platforming, while SSBB stays in the same feeling of Melee.
