Wii U modders get Goku in Super Smash Bros.

I'm glad people are still finding ways to have fun with their Wii U, whether that means modding dopey anime men into Super Smash Bros. by stretching his skin over Ryu's skeleton; making insane Super Mario Maker levels; or enjoying the new ...

My wallet gently weeps: Nintendo to release amiibo dioramas

Although they haven't been announced in the west, Nintendo's Japanese site has been updated to provide a look at its official upcoming amiibo diorama line -- which, at present, consists of a Kirby and Super Smash Bros. model. They're b...

Sorry love: Super Smash scene in Spain may ban Bayonetta

Even with her very small nerf in the recent balance patch, most Super Smash Bros. players agree that Bayonetta is at least formidable. Now, a community in Spain is looking to ban her outright from upcoming tournaments. A top player, Greward...

Super Smash Bros. just got a new balance patch

Super Smash Bros. may be done in terms of content, but it looks like the team is still going to push balance patches, at least in the near future. As of this week a new update has landed (1.1.5), which brings a few changes, mostly to newer ...

Sakurai says he wishes Geno was a fully fledged fighter in Super Smash Bros.

The last round of Smash DLC was a doozy. We got another Fire Emblem character that plays utterly different from the rest, and a completely unexpected new addition. But Masashiro Sakurai, famed producer of the series, wanted Geno is a f...

I'm sure many of you shared my reaction to the initial announcement that Corrin, the upcoming player-character from Fire Emblem Fates, was going to be in Super Smash Bros. Who? Another Fire Emblem character? Oh... But, a...   read

Farewell, newest Super Smash Bros., you were the best

This is it for Super Smash Bros., it seems. All of the DLC has been released, the polls are over, and Sakurai has noted that there will be no more balance patches. It's time for the team to move onto Smash 5, or for Sakurai to finally ...

Super Smash Bros. sure got a lot sexier with Bayonetta around

The Super Smash Bros. series has had its fair share of mods, but I think this just might be my favorite one yet. Modder Smb123w64gb has taken the liberty of swapping everyone on the Super Smash Bros. roster with Bayonetta's character model,...

 
Bayonetta Impressions
Here's the step-by-step experience I have had with Bayonetta's character in Super Smash Bros. First, take her into the training room and understand how her moves work. Then, play some matches against the CPU. Feel confident, then go online. Immediately get hit by an opponent's Bayonetta with a gigantic combo. Welp.   read

Oh, a weird-lookin' Knuckles Mii is coming to Smash too

This Wednesday's arrival of Bayonetta and Corrin as the final Super Smash Bros. DLC isn't quite the entirety of the last Smash DLC. Easily overlooked is the sixth wave of Mii Fighters, Nintendo's avatars dressed in silly costumes. It's obvi...

Bayonetta in Smash almost raised the game's rating in Japan

In her debut character trailer for Super Smash Bros. Bayonetta is said to "get wicked," but apparently she was almost too wicked for Japan. Sakurai recently shared his thoughts on the upcoming Smash characters with Famitsu, which inclu...

How does save data loss affect your enjoyment of a game?
