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


5:54 PM on 07.06.2007



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.

I died an embarrassing amount in Hotline Miami 2

Anyone that has even the slightest bit of familiarity with Hotline Miami knows what defines it. The neon-swathed visuals, the gratuitous violence, the quick and unforgiving gameplay, and the blaring soundtrack all made the ga...more

Not a Hero's 2D cover-based shooting killed me about a dozen times

Devolver Digital had a great showing at PAX East this year. Though Hotline Miami 2 might have had the most buzz going in, not long into the show people were shouting about Not a Hero. Developed by Roll7 (of OlliOlli fame), it...more

Music-making game Cosmic DJ has a corgi in it!

This past weekend, I found myself running through the crowds of the PAX East show floor, pushing people out of the way to get to the Indie Megabooth, where Cosmic DJ was waiting for me. As a musician and a fan of music games I would have sought it out anyway. But I found out via Twitter that the game features a corgi, so I took off running.more
