God, I can't even imagine the bastardly TREASON of some of you yuppy little kids saying things as STUPID as "If there's no Shoutbox, I won't buy it!!"
Your ignorance is overwhelming. Too many of you have been caught up in this Ultra-Modern fad of everything having to be Totally Cutting-Edge or it's complete crap. Get over yourselves!
SSBB is going to be one of the awesomest games of ALL TIME and you're sitting here crapping your diapers because of no "Shoutbox". IDIOTS!!
This is just like all the immature little turds who said they would NOT BE BUYING Metroid Prime 3: Corruption because of no ONLINE MULTIPLAYER. IDIOTS! I was laughing at you while playing through that game, having a total BLAST and knowing how much you were missing out on!
So seriously, grow up and stop acting like stupid crap like a 'shoutbox' is going to spoil your life.
This is like refusing sex with a stunning-hot model because you find out she has a scar on the bottom of her foot.
WAKE UP KIDS!
