What does it mean by "Not
Yet"? Well, it means a lot
about the upcoming Super Smash
Bros. Brawl game. Simple: It's
not even out yet!
What do I mean? Well, let's take
an interesting route to get to
the point. I received an email
the other day from a fan, who'll
remain anonymous, which sounded
something like this:
"Hey Mario Legacy, why are
you guys updating along with the
official Super Smash Bros. Brawl
website?!? It's the best game
ever and you don't even have any
coverage of it!"
And that got me thinking about
how low Mario's gotten, because
there's already people calling
this the best game ever. News
flash: You haven't played it
More and more do I see this game
being praised at levels that it
just does not deserve. I mean,
really, a few eye-candy,
fan-boyish updates has the whole
community of fans riled up. It's
always nice to have updates like
this, but it hardly shows the
game at it's true level,
especially without playing it.
Other people have said the same
thing. Our own topic at
the Message Board is loaded with
higher-than deserved praise, and
if you're a visitor to
Nintendo's Nsider Forums, you
can see that the board is
littered with all kinds of posts
about how it's going to be the
best game ever produed.
Now I know there's going to be
people out there who'll say I'm
knocking it down, not giving it
a chance, or just plain wrong.
My response? Well, it may not be
quite what you think it will be.
Truth is, I think it'll be a
tremendous game. And there's
nothing wrong with speculation,
but it's just becoming too much
of "this is the best game ever,"
or I wouldn't even be writing
this article. We don't know how
it'll play, we don't know how
it'll even compare to the first
two installments of the series!
But by looks alone, and by all
the updates we receive daily, it
truly does look like it'll be a
great game, and I hope it is.
People just need to take a step
back and realize what they're
looking at is an unfinished,
un-released, and un-polished
game so far. It's not the best
game produced, because
production isn't even part of
the equation yet.
Really though, we're expecting a
great game and who knows, it may
just be the best game ever. But
not yet, we need to see more of
it and actually play it to
