Have you seen how many places have broken street dates?

 

Not my local independent game store. That's for sure.

Yeah, I tried. They knew that I knew they had it in the back, but they weren't going to break the street date, not even for a lifelong customer.

(Can't be mad at them though, they're selling download cards for Earthbound and Dillon's Rolling Western. That's too awesome. Plus, they did sell me the Bayonetta double pack recently for 30 quid)

 

I can wait though. I've got Lufia GBC to play through still and Golden Sun Dark Dawn.

Don't mind the controller delay as I have 5 of them but the adapter....nah man, can't do it. :/

 

So I've pre-ordered it using Amazon Prime and cancelled with Shopto so it should come by Friday atleast. :/

Can't help but laugh at the hypocrisy here.

 

Bwaha, indeed. I remember him complaining about that. :p

Spoke to live chat. They confirmed that the game + adaptor bundle will be dispatched today.

 

Also, I noticed this for the controller (same for the adaptor).

 

We are so confident that you will receive Wii U GameCube Contoller Super Smash Bros Edition for Friday 28th of November 2014 that if for ANY reason you do not we will compensate you with £5.00 to your account.

Didn't realise ShopTo could send you friends to play with...

There you go, now you have a way to play Smash Run with others!

It's the same old user whining about the same old thing. I remember it happening for some other games last year.

Dispatch Confirmation Get!

 

Also, the refund is apparently for first class recorded only (as normal has no proof), but I'm pretty sure that "you haven't sent it yet" is pretty good proof that it hasn't arrived.

There is no reason to be so upset, I just find it highly amusing that the first one to cry about others getting their game before the street date is unfair would willingly do the same thing.

But yes, life is a wondrous thing when you have a fully functioning memory that identifies patterns in the behaviour of others, and I would be slightly concerned if a common amusing element from each thread of a much hyped blockbuster is easily forgotten, especially when I've called you out on it before.

 

But we'll end it there, I genuinely hope you're having fun with your game 2 days before the street date, I know all of us would do the same but without the crying when we're not so lucky.

 

For example, my order has presumably not been dispatched! I'll be busy Friday, so I'll have to wait until Saturday :)

Today I managed to find a bunch of old Brawl snapshots that I took! May as well share some of them whilst we get ready to Smash in the coming days. Maybe tell me your favourites and/or share some of your own if you have any.

 

EDIT: Forgot to add that most of these are from matches with folks of n-europe, but there's no way I can remember who is who after this long. Chances are that quite are few shots have members who have long since left the forums.

The Villagers show conflicting emotions at this development.

...Huh. Well, that'd do it.

The Villagers' emotions have remained unchanged at this development.

"I'm ready for anything! Nothing is going to catch me off guard!"

Marth was unimpressed by Mr. Game & Watch's juggling act.

Maybe because he got a butt in his face. Though to be fair I've heard that it is a magnificent posterior...

I'll finish with close ups of characters hitting the screen! Always amusing!

 

ssbb32.png

...I'm not amused anymore. I'm scared now. Please stop.

 

ssbb36.png

Stop it.

 

ssbb33.png

STOP!

 

ssbb28.png

WHY WON'T YOU STOP?!

 

ssbb34.png

WHYYYYYYYY-

I hope there will be a lot of replays and screenshots when we get the Wii U game.

 

...By the way, to those who don't know, back when Brawl was released I made a little comic to share my friend code with others. Less than 20 images were used, but looking back at the files, I took over 180 snapshots for it! I sure had a lot of free time back then...

I never knew you could get 2 of those... whale Pokemons at once. I hope Smash Wii U has unlimited Pokeballs, the 3DS version was so lame how it barely spawned Pokeballs even when they're the only item.

So if we were to do a regular Smash tourney, I was thinking that what we could do is split things up by mode and game.

 

So what we would do is have 4 different tourney brackets that are kept track of separately, with the four different ones listed below...

 

3DS: For Glory

Wii U: For Fun

3DS: For Fun

Wii U: For Glory

 

... the idea being that each bracket would run for a week before swapping over to the next one (each overall tourney being monthly - If we can't really find a single day to play together on, we could just have the bracket run across the whole week; with the final happening on a set day.) That way both games are covered, people get to play the modes they want and there's less pressure for people to try and find time each and every week, as the four brackets would be counted completely separately :) (though they could choose to take part in more than one if they wanted to).

 

We would have a set ruleset that we use across all four brackets (like say, 2 stock, 5 minutes, best of 3, set stages etc), which would be open to special theme nights/months.

 

To keep things relatively short, we could limit each bracket to maybe 8 or 16 players? Players who don't get round to taking part against their chosen opponent within a set time would automatically forfeit the match.

 

At the end of each month, we could have the winners of each bracket play against each other to decide this month's overall winner :) (if one player ends up winning more than one bracket in a month, then the other finalists could play each other to fight for a position in the monthly final)

 

Maybe we could also have a general leaderboard keeping track of each player's total wins, total 2nd/3rd/4th places, average places in each bracket etc.

 

The biggest challenge with doing a monthly Smash tourney thingy though is that it's hard to keep track of, since you can't just have big groups of 12 people like in Mario Kart... which also means that dealing with adding people to each other's friends list is also a giant pain in the bum...

 

I suppose that we'll have an actual built-in tourney option in Smash Wii U come next year anyway though, which will hopefully simplify things greatly, but that would exclude the 3DS game; which would be a huge shame really...

 

What do you guys reckon?

 

Was finding a day a big deal? when I skimmed the ds thread I saw tuesday suggested, but no objections based on not being able to make a set day..

 

Alternating for fun and for glory seems a reasonable idea, and I see why you would choose to alternate between ds and wii games, but personally I'm against that just because it would reduce it down to a fortnightly thing.. and even with mk8 being weekly I have come close to forgetting about it.. fortnightly I'd have no chance. but as I said, that's being purely selfish.

In terms of the "pressure" of it being weekly, having a average score, as per the mario kart league removes that pressure really, and rather just creates an opportunity.

Alternating between for fun and glory mixes things up, but mixing up wii U/3DS versions cuts some of us out.. to my mind it would be akin to running both a mariokart 8 and mario kart 7 tournament in one...

 

I think the agreed rule set would lay a good foundation, people would know what to expect, having theme nights also sounds like fun.

 

The limited number of potential players makes things trickier in terms of administration, but perhaps who ever took it on could delegate - give helpers a couple of groups to number crunch, then feed all the data back to the main organiser to collate and present in one coherent place.

 

Perhaps a thread should be created in the online board about all this though... perhaps we don't have enough people interested? the 3ds thread only seems to have about 8 people anyway so I presume that would make administration a lot simpler, if Wii U numbers are similar.

But I would be interested in joining a Wii U smash league

Debug we clearly need to settle it in smash and keep this on topic .
How's this for on topic (for the 3rd time today :heh:) Where did you get your copy of Smash from?

To be fair, I hate when street dates are broken, for a specific series of games, as it makes my life hell.

 

Love it when it happens to me for everything else though :p

Haha. Amazing regarding shopto. A free tenner from the pad and adaptor makes it more of a bargain.

 

Went on the site, they really make it as difficult as possible don't they. Anyone know where the form it mentions in the faq is?

From what I´ve heard your site is pretty popular? Maybe you can get away with asking for review copies in the future?

Shopto gave you extra £10 off, or do you just mean the saving from the bundle? Either way, Shopto really dropped the ball this time.
