Well, this is it, 10 days left till brawl. It's been a long journey, but now American gamers are finally going to get the title we've been waiting for. From that first, awe-inspiring teaser (in which Snake and the often-discussed Final Smashes was revealed to an unexpecting world) & the smash bros. DOJO releasing spectacular news such as Sonic's inclusion and Stage builder, all the way to the leak in Hong Kong (where the full roster was finally revealed) and Brawl's japanese release, almost all the smash bros. news has gotten us pumped for this highly anticipated game. This thread is where you can post the top 5 most exciting news to you throughout the road to brawl, as well as the most dissapointing one. I'll start (WARNING: SPOILERS WILL BE INVOLVED, SO LOOK AWAY IF YOU PLAN ON SAVING THE SECRETS FOR THE GAME'S RELEASE):
5)Wi-Fi Play: Finally, the prayers of brawlers everywhere were answered, as online gaming finally became available in a smash bros. game.
4)The Original Trailer: I can't recall how many times I saw this, just to watch the awesomeness over and over again. This also revealed 3rd-Party Characters and Final Smashes, which are a definate plus.
3)Stage Builder: My god, this was incredible. This truly makes the game one you can play FOREVER, and was both an unexpected and welcome addition to SSBB.
2)Subspace Emissary: Addressing one of the only weaknesses in SBBM, the new single player(which now includes co-op, whoohoo!) was one of the new additions that didn't really feel like just an addition, more like a whole new game. Also, the new bosses found within 1-Player are INTENSE (Ridley looks better than his boss fights in Metroid, and that's saying something).
1)Sonic The Hedgehog: I literally jumped out of my seat and danced a little when I saw this update. One of my favorite videogame characters finally appeared alongside the Greats of Nintendo, and I personally couldn't have been happier.
Most Dissappointing:Brawl Delayed (AGAIN): All right, one delay, fine. Two delays, I can handle. But when brawl was moved from February 10th to March 9th I almost couldn't handle it. I was so close to finally getting my copy of brawl, only to have it snatched away. The only silver lining of this situation was that it was moved only less than a month up, so at least I didn't have to wait till July to finally get the game.
All right, so what are YOUR top 5?
