Super Smash Bros. Brawl Sells 1.4 Million in First Week

Or about 120 units per minute (so says the press release, I didn’t do the math myself). Either way, it’s awesome news for Nintendo. 1.4 million may seem like a lot, but Brawl has a long way to go to catch Melee, which sold 7 million units over the lifetime of the Gamecube. The whole… Continue reading Super Smash Bros. Brawl Sells 1.4 Million in First Week

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Initial Impressions

I bought Brawl last night and since then have played the game for just over 10 hours.

This, however, has changed my mind. Famitsu… Continue reading Famitsu Gives Super Smash Bros Brawl Perfect Score

Super Smash Bros. Updates Suck Lately

Seriously, I’m getting scared that there aren’t going to be any more new characters announced for Brawl at this point. Smash Bros. Dojo hasn’t announced a new character since October 25th (we got King Dedede, do we really need more Kirby characters). The updates have been pretty boring, too, but I guess if you have… Continue reading Super Smash Bros. Updates Suck Lately
