Funny you say that, because Shulk is a genuine busta.

Posted by iamdanthemanstan

When I first heard about this game I wasn't particularly excited. But somehow after seeing just one or two videos I've become ridiculously obsessed. The sort of obsessed where all my current games loose their fun because I just want to play this.

Why is this "Unfinished?" It looks like the full game from here.

Posted by Pierre42

@iamdanthemanstan: Never played a Smash Before?

I'll catch this later, it's going alongside the Treehouse Stream, and they are guaranteed to not be as cynical and know what they are talking about.

It isn't released yet anywhere, and not in the US until October (3rd?). So this is considered either a demo or early version that could be updated or patched before final release.

I have absolutely no interest in playing any of the two new Smash games because I never liked playing them, but I do like me some competitive Smash for some reason. So, there you go I guess.

Man, there's a lot of hitching here.

They need to get Palmer Lucky in here so they can get real hype about Smash.

I came here w/the same question. Unfortunate that it's not cleared up at the beginning of the video.

Dan has said before he loves Smash.

@fobwashed Yeah, they do eventually mention it around 16 minutes in.

Don't worry. They're wrong, he's in it.

Posted by Hailinel

I'm watching the Treehouse stream right now, and it's far more informative than I could ever hope to expect from GB on this.

Posted by Oscar__Explosion

Capt. Falcon has been in every game and I believe Ganondorf is a unlockable in this.

Dear Jeff,

What do you like?

So tired of hearing the crew hate everything because its Nintendo.

Edited by NDN_Shadow

@bkbroiler: watching some of it now and dan says he only plays it like a party game, which is sad cuz jeff and brad might have liked the no-items, flat stages final destination modes.

But then again, if you're watching this for information about the new smash bros, you're watching the wrong video.

Posted by UltimAXE

It kind of blows my mind to hear how cynical Jeff and apathetic Brad are towards Smash.

Posted by CitizenCoffeeCake

Captain Falcon has been in all the Smash games.

Posted by mrthee

@ultimaxe: At least they're open-minded about their apathy and try to analyze when it never clicked with themselves.

Posted by Ellrick

Awww, how cute, its like baby's first fighting game.

Posted by TakenByTrees

I'm with Jeff and Brad on this one. Maybe it is an age thing or being in the UK Nintendo just wasn't as big. Looks fun if that's your thing but too busy for my taste.

Posted by wumbo3000

As someone who is into competitive Melee and is "out of my damn mind" (according to Jeff), this new Smash just isn't grabbing my attention for some reason. Maybe it's because I hated Brawl, but watching this just makes me want to go play Melee.

I've just come to realization that I don't really like the Smash Brothers series; I just really like Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Edited by TheBlue

Well, here we go.

I still have yet to understand why Jeff and Brad sit in on Quick Looks of games they know they won't like and simply dismiss it.

Why bother.

Posted by Judoboy

It's painful to hear Smash Bros. dismissed as a frivolous fighting game. There so much depth to it.

Posted by Conciliator

Not tripping over themselves to hype whatever fans demand they be hyped about is the exact reason that Giant Bomb is basically the only gaming site I visit.

Posted by CitizenCoffeeCake

There is no reason for people to be getting butt hurt in the comments about Jeff and Brad "dismissing" the game. If you like Smash Brothers you'll probably like this game too, great. Them saying that it is not for them will not cheapen the game or lessen your enjoyment of it.

Posted by Zabant

Man, Dan is so happy and optimistic for video games.

Then there's Jeff and Brad

Posted by LemonadePack

@danryckert Captain Falcon was never taken out of the roster. He's been there since N64 Smash Bros

Pretty good *YAAAAAAAAAAWNNNNNNNNN* video. Who was taking the melatonin pre-recording? lol

Edited by Mister_Snig

What I like about Smash is that it is both a party game and a game with deep mechanics that can be kinda serious. Back when I was living in a dorm me and my friends liked to mess around with 4-player items matches and hold 1v1 tournaments on Final Destination. Not liking the way it plays is fine, whatever, but not seeing how people can take it seriously because the mechanics aren't like a traditional fighting game is a little dismissive.

Posted by Milkman

That second mode they played seemed real dumb. 5 minutes of shitty platforming is not what I come to Smash Bros. for.

Posted by D_W

That MegaMan 2 level was pretty rad... MegaMan is pretty rad.
