    There were two things I really liked from the direct. The "preferred rules" thing is dope. Your only options for playing with randoms online in Wii U was "for fun" and "for glory", and in "for fun" you were stuck playing time instead of stock, which nobody ever does ever. So just being able to play stock with randoms was on my wishlist and they gave me that.

    The other thing was them going "PLEASE BUY A LAN ADAPTER". People need to learn that playing fighting games over wifi is not okay.

    Also for glory had a few rules that people didn't super like.

    Nintendo should include an ethernet port on their fuckin consoles; it probably costs $.05

    It'd be nice if the dock had an ethernet port and you didn't need to get an adapter separately.

    I just think it's weird that you can tell the game "here is how I want to play it" and it can go "that's cool, we're playing it how Jim In Nantucket wants to play though, tough shit"

    Definitely agree. It's dumb, but Lan adapters are cheap so at least its not hard to just like, buy one on amazon.

    I bought one for my wii when Monster Hunter TRI came out in 2009, and ended up using it for my Wii U as well.

    i love that, though. it's trying to make online still feel even a little bit like couch versus, where jim from next door BEGS over and over to do an all pokemon ball battle and eventually you have to

    I mean with that many variables is waiting 20 minutes to get matched with someone who has your specific combination of choices better? I assume it will target as close to a match as possible but getting to play a game that's not EXACTLY the way you want it beats not getting to play

    My other takaway from the Direct was that we didn't see Wonder Red as an assist trophy, and I wasn't really paying attention but I didn't see him as a spirit.

    My dream of playable Wonder Red and a blossom city stage lives on

    My favorite nickname isn't clever or anything, it's just very aesthetically pleasing to me: Pringles the Piplup. Dunno why he just looked like a Pringles.

    Yes. So this is basically that setup again.

    But Piranha Plant is just so great and out of left field of a choice. It's got as much history as goombas after all.

    I love the fact that its idle just has it chomping at the air, mindlessly.

    There's a ton of throwbacks. One of the screenshots on the official page is Mario with a raccoon tail flying over a series of Piranhas shooting spikes up into the air on gusts. I think SMB3 introduced that ability.

    I got Mewtwo for free through Club Nintendo or whatever and then I wasn't able to purchase the character bundles because I already had Mewtwo. I ended up not buying any DLC.

    There was bundles? Certainly not ones that cost any less than buying the characters separately.

    The bundles were just quick selects of purchasing options. Also saved a little if you bought 3ds and wiiu together, but the individual console bundles didn't save any money.

    I just convinced my students that the extra pause Sakurai has in that video is because he was blinking a secret message the whole time in Morse code and needed that extra time for blinks.

    I feel like the character bundles were worth it but I can't remember why. There was definitely a reason I was annoyed that I had to buy the characters separately and I don't think it was because of laziness (but maybe it was).
