The Smash DOJO recap: Play as Giga Bowser without hacks!

If you haven't guessed by now, I am a huge fan of the Smash Bros series. Just like with Halo 3, Masahiro Sakurai and crew are going to tease their fans until the games are finally out. Personally, I would love to post everyday about all the going ons at the DOJO, but even I would get sick of that after a couple of weeks. So instead, every Friday, I plan on recapping the news of the week from the DOJO. Of course, if there's something really important that is announced, (such as the Assist Trophies from Monday), team Destructoid will be sure to bring you the info as soon we can.

The DOJO week began with the news of the Assist Trophies. We already covered it Monday and I'm still not sure I like the idea. I do know though that if you only select Assist Trophies and Pokeballs items and put them on "very high" setting, it will make for a very fun match.  

Tuesday and Wednesday was dedicated to Bowser. It wasn't much of a surprise to see him brought back for Brawl, but his Final Smash move made me all tingly on the inside. Unless you had the Action Replay, you could only fight against the transformed version of Bowser. So it's a real big fan service to have Bowser's Final Smash turn him into Giga Bowser.  

It was a very boring day for Smash vets on Thursday. Masahiro only showed off how you would be performing the main type of attacks in the game on all the control schemes, the Smash Attack. I cannot see how anyone would be able to play this game on configuration A, the Wiimote and Nunchuk.

Finally, a new stage was shown today called Bridge of Eldin. The level is taken from Twilight Princess and King Bulblin makes a cameo on the stage. The bridge you're battling on will be destroyed by Bulblin but will reappear after awhile. 

That's it for this week at the DOJO. Take what you can Smash fans. With Nintendo not planning on showing this game at E3 next week, this is all we'll get for awhile.

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.
