I don't think its only consumers that are confused, my mom asked an employee at their local eletronic store what this new Wii U thing was. He said it was an upgraded Wii, so she was kinda surprised when I told her it was a completely new console.
Eh, I think he was just making a joke. Granted, it was a pretty dumb joke, and I think it's disappointing that they didn't go with a woman, but it seems a bit silly to judge him entirely based on that quote.
Why did they feel the need to confirm Luigi in Smash Bros? I thought it was just assumed that everyone who's been in every title since the N64 was going to be in this one too.
Brawl was already missing some characters from Melee. Though most were arguably replaced, like Roy by Ike and Young Link by Toon Link.
Also, I'm pretty sure that Sakurai has already said that this one will have less characters than Brawl did, just because they don't have the time to get everybody in. I kind of wonder if they'll do DLC characters though.
Really looking forward to this. Capaldi is a brilliant actor and will (thankfully) be quite different to Matt Smith, who I felt tried to ape David Tennant too much.
Now we just need to get rid of Steven Moffet as lead writer, so he'll stop butchering everyone's scripts.
I really don't understand Moffat hate. Do you really think RTD was better? Some of the stuff in those first four seasons was just flat out embarrassing. Sure there was also good stuff, but it was kind of hit or miss. The Moffat seasons have felt more consistent.
