The Smash DOJO!! recap: You will never know if you're playing a human or CPU

The DOJO began the week in a horrible way with Friends Codes. Just hearing those words brings a shiver down my spine. Anyway, you need to enter your friend's Code once and it's stored in the system. You can also have little status messages that only your friends can see. So call them a sh*t bag or something just in spite of the Friends Codes.

Some of the returning Pokemon were listed on Tuesday's first update. Suicune, Lugia, Entei, Staryu, Bellossom, Ho-Oh, Wobbuffet, Togepi, Snorlax, Celebi, and Mew are some of the returning Pokemons. If Mew or Celebi ever appear, they will drop a CD before they leave the map and do absoultly nothing to aid you in the battle. Tuesday's second update was for a new song called X: Tunnel Scene. This song comes from a game called X and was never released outside of Japan. Sakurai really wanted the song to be in the game and that's the only reason it's in Brawl. Not a bad tune; makes me want to actually play the game now.

On Wednesday, Sakurai talked about the Smash Ball. Players will have to break open the Smash Ball to use the Final Smash attack. If you don't use the Smash Ball though, it can get knocked out of you and the fight for it starts all over. There's also something called Pity Final Smash where the losing player is given a bonus chance to fight back. Speaking of Final Smashes, King Dedede's Final Smash, called Waddle Dee Army, was revealed. King Dedede summons an army of Waddle Dees and Gordos to the battlefield.

For today's update, Sakurai talks more about Basic Brawl. Basic Brawl is where you fight people anonymously and your records aren't kept track of. You have only 45 seconds to pick a character or else the computer will randomly select one for you. Then, you can vote for the stage you want and items are determined by lottery. Now here's where some major bullsh*t comes out. If your opponents get dropped out of a match, their characters will then get taken over by the CPU. I like the idea of the computer coming in to take over. What I don't like is the fact that you will never truly know if you are ever fighting a human or a computer in Basic Brawl. That's no good.
