SSBM has true high level play there is no way someone could beat me at that game if they were not already experienced and well versed in the techniques. I don't know if this has been answered yet but SSBM was represented at EVO. Just because you don't like or aren't good at that type at game doesn't make it "not a fighting game". If you want to turn on 4 player and have all the items on, then that's great! I really hope you have a blast, but there is a specific way that people play the game at the top level.
No where near the levels of hype and Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat both pretty much delivered exactly what was expected of them. Personally I don't care about either game this week, I may get L.A. Noire down the line if it gets some good buzz going. Plus Portal Kombat is a catchy phrase, this week has no such phrase.
Personally I hope we hear something about Timesplitters 4. Also lets lock down some release dates for big hitters on the 3DS, the price is getting cheaper and cheaper and I just need a few decent games and I will buy the damn thing. I have been dipping back into some DS and GBA classics as it is. I also want to see some gameplay for DMC and obviously the biggest news of the show is whatever Nintendo's console ends up being.
