Reserved Brawl. Bursting with anticipation.

It was probably unnecessary for me to reserve Brawl, but the thought of not attaining it this Saturday makes me sick, so I've insured my health. Funny how far the Wii has come already, and when looking back on other Nintendo consoles. Every time a new Mario or Zelda game comes out, it reminds me of my childhood and of gamings past. Perhaps this is unhealthy, but one of my fondest memories is of the times me and my friends rented the first Super Smash Bros. We played non-stop and it was just fantastic. To this day I still play Melee, and we played that forever too. Its wonderful to see the favourite characters triumphant return, as well as the new faces (to the Smash series at least).

I know I've griped about the Wii, but in all honesty Nintendo themselves have managed to keep things good (3rd party developers need to be spanked). With the Wii I've had more control of the games I get and have managed to secure a copy of all of Nintendo's big titles upon release (Metroid Prime 3, Super Paper Mario, Zelda Twilight, although got Mario Galaxy at Christmas...) and it just goes to show to me, how Nintendo never will get old.

All that being said, the slogan in the commercials for Brawl worry me, "the brawl to end all", does this mean this is the last Brawl, or is it just a slogan for the sake of rhyming? I just ponder is all.

Of course all this positive talk must be mirrored by the fact that for the past three months I've been playing my PS3 non-stop. Good news is, all my PS3 games are beaten, and I've played COD4 online a lot, so I'm ready for a new game, and luckily (thankfully) Brawl is finally being released.

Finally is an under statement however, its delays have broken many of my internal organs numerous times.

What rocks even more, is I've completed all my assignments for school, finished all tests (with As, to bribe my parents) and March Break is coming right up with the release of Brawl. Its almost as if, Nintendo planned its release to my schedule. Either way, its kind of odd how I give thanks for a video game, but really they're that good, and I'm more than happy to fork over fifty-six bucks for it.

Thanks for reading, I know its just some mushy thoughts of mine and Super Smash Bros, but thats what blogs are for. When your bored and have nothing better to do, plus as gamers we don't read much. Later.

Hi there!

From my header, it is easy to tell that Mario games, Assassins Creed and Dragon Quest 8 are amongst my favourite games, I do prefer games with fantastic stories or fantastic game play. Both together are preferable, yet rare.
