When I first heard about the stickers (some time ago) I thought it was pretty lame. Not so anymore.
The only thing that would make this better is to have your on-line brawlers beefed up with sticker abilites.
Um, no, the only thing that would be good for is to give cheaters and pros an unfair advantage. People would race to get the "ultimate" sticker setup, and then only those who play casually would be at a disadvantage. Balance is important in a fighting game, and while you should be rewarded for your achievements in the single player mode, that reward should not spill into multiplayer, lest it be the skill and experience to have a fighting chance against other people.
And besides, I dunno about you, but I prefer to face my opponents on even ground.
Wave-dashing is gone also, FYI.
Also a little late but what the hell; Shiek is in Brawl! I didn’t think she (take that, "sheik-is-a-guy" boy-lovers!) would make it... But I’m actually more interested in the news that she was at one time supposed to be in Twilight Princess. I guess that designer (not Aonuma) wasn’t jerking around when he said they were thinking about it after all...
