Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

Recommended Posts

I haven't ordered the game and this makes me feel quite bad. I used to love Smash, but I just can't get excited for this one. =(

 

I got the 3DS one but I stopped playing it as soon as I unlocked all the characters, it just didn't draw me back in. The Smash Run part just isn't fun and there is not much else that makes me want to go back for more, just feels too samey.

 

I would probably be interested in this if it had something like the Subspace Emissary, but there is nothing like that in this game, is there?

There's an insane amount of content. But no adventure mode. It has events and orders which are small bite sized missions or objectives or just Classic matches - giant monsters featuring DK and bowser for example, it's great. Smash tour, the board game mode seems really good to me, mental, but good fun, better than smash run.

 

If you will have someone else to play it with the whole game will be even better as there are loads of 2 player stuff, specific events, and smash tour would be loads better with 2 human people

Just been playing this (and Mario Kart) in local multiplayer. Yes we did 8 man smash. It was insane.

 

Looking forward to some online games against you guys!

You know, the Wii U Pro Controller actually feels a bit more responsive than the old GameCube controllers. Might be because they're old, or maybe because the newer pad is superior. Never thought I'd say that in a billion years...

I'm using the Pro pad and getting along ok but I want the accuracy of the GC controller. A couple of times I've tried to down-smash and accidentally side-smashed... wouldn't happen with a GC controller. Why didn't they stick with that design :(

So how many people here have actually managed to get copies of the game+adapters? Chokepoint seems to be the adapters. I'm worrying.

Lucky sod! I haven't had the chance to do 8 player Smash yet (had to settle for a mere 4 player one yesterday); hopefully it won't be too long till I can rustle up 7 of my friends to play Smash!

 

Nothing beats local multi! :D

My Flubit is 'awaiting dispatch' and says estimate Tues-Thurs this week, but I'm rather scared that isn't true. One big problem I'm finding in actually trying to find this in brick and mortar is the rather lacking WiiU presence on the high street. Just called a local indie and they're not even stocking it!

ShopTO or elsewhere?

I've played it for four hours so far. It's a good game, but I really miss the Sub Space Emissary, that was the best bit of Brawl. I loved the story and all the cutscenes.

 

The game is a little manic for me and I think it could do with some tutorials!

Shopto.

 

On a related note. The Ninty UK store actually delivered my copies of Pokemon ORAS on Thursday! Nintendo (well, ok The Hut really) actually ended up breaking their own street date :laughing:

Well considering the bundles are going online for over £90, I'd say not!

Did you get it? I got mine from Zavvi at 11am.

 

4pm I got mine :| guy knocked, by the time I got down stairs I was able to catch him just about to write that he'd dumped the game behind a plant pot.

I got mine yesterday

 

I've unlocked one character, my nephews were playing together this morning and unlocked a further 3 for me :D

Man, I knew I was terrible at Smash but not THIS terrible. I'm having a lot of difficulties performing the Up B recovery, sometimes it just won't register when it actually should. Because of it, I'm doing fine until the final boss and losing lives and, therefore, bonuses. And I'm only at intensity 3.0!

Don't know who to blame for this mess but its here now so I am happy. I can wait for the GCN controller as I have several lying around.

Amazon let me down hard! It didn't arrive on Friday so i called up to find out why, i was then promised it would arrive today and guess what nothing... so i went to town and got it from Argos £40 whereas GAME were selling it for £50 lol. It was without the gamecube controller adapter, bloody thing sold out everywhere i went. Pro controller will do for now.

Played some Smash last night, i'm pretty happy using the Pro controller over the GC pad. Adjusted the controls a bit to suit myself and i'm playing fine. Made some more adjustments to what music should be on what course and how frequent it should play.

 

Overall gameplay-wise, i'm impressed. I love the Amiibo stuff, having my Yoshi teaming with..........well, Yoshi was interesting.

A bit annoyingly, I looked for my controllers yesterday... and they have gone awol. I can only find my purple/transparent one and my wave bird :|

 

Good enough for now, but I am a bit perplexed, I've looked just about everywhere I can think of... no sign any where :( I had been hoping for 7 player smash games next week, but I guess not

Has anyone had the game lock up on them at all?

 

I was playing home run contest the morning and the TV screen and gamepad went black and it made a loud and long beep and forced me to turn the Wii U off.

 

It's really nice getting to play on the big screen after the 3DS version and with a much better controller to boot but I still get lost so easily in those 8 player matches.

In team match, how do you steal a team mates life? I was playing with my nephew who died but then he announced he had come back... and I had lost a life. I checked after the match, no SD's or falls.. nothing :/

I'm actually doing so badly it's affecting my enjoyment :( I really don't know if it's my controller, but the times where double jumping fails to occur is really pissing me off. It's the leading cause of most of my deaths, and tends to happen a lot on the final boss if there's any clue as to what I'm doing wrong?

 

Worked my way up to 5.0 intensity, but the boss knocks me all the way down to 3.5 each time.
