nintendo understands gameplay, you can't have people beating each other then use a "special" as the only way to score a point.
That's rich. Have you totally been ignoring peoples' many complaints with Brawl compared to Melee?
Tripping is the bane of my existence.
There is definitely a way to make Smash Bros. better than any of the previous 3 games, while adopting the right complaints, elements from traditional fighting games (not like combo counters though) without losing the platformer design of the game originally. There are great hopes for this game, with a significantly more powerful console than the Wii, better controller (Pro Controller) and stronger online component. Also, 6 players may be possible.
