Smash Bros. Players Infuriated Over Surprise Rule Tweak At Big Tournament

Although Super Smash Bros Melee closed out this weekend’s Genesis 4 with a bang, a cloud of controversy hangs over the tournament due to rule complications during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U finals. The competitors most affected are looking for answers and, perhaps most surprisingly, compensation for the match errors they encountered. Advertisement The first signs of trouble arose during a losers bracket battle between Japanese visitor Rei “Komorikiri” Furukawa and “Captain Zack” Lauth. Both players had clawed their way through a grueling weekend against 1,000 of their fellow competitors and were now faced with elimination. On the line: a smaller portion of the over $10,000 prize pool, should they lose one more match. But as Komorikiri saw his tournament life come to an end at the hands of a 3-1 defeat, concerns were raised that a crucial gameplay setting was altered during their match. “Damage Ratio” in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U sounds like a pretty straightforward metric, but it actually affects how much knockback is applied to every attack (and knockback affects how easily players are killed.) Tournament standards call for this setting to stay READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Breath of the Wild Director Discusses Alternate Endings

Aonuma Alludes to Multiple Endings During Recent Interview Zelda games are not known for having multiple endings, outside of certain portable releases. Breath of the Wild looks like it will buck this trend, however. According to a report from Wccftech, Eji Aonuma has confirmed at least one extra ending in Breath of the Wild. “There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending,” He said during an interview with IGN Portugal. The remainder of said interview will be released soon, hopefully with even more details about the upcoming game. On that note, what will the difference between the endings be? Previous entries in the Zelda franchise kept things fairly similar, with minor changes being made depending on whether you were playing the ‘Master Quest’ version of the game or not. With this next game being such a departure from the formula, will the different endings be properly different? This could be a reference to a comment made earlier about being able to go straight to the boss. It would be nice to see players rewarded for their dedication to such a suicidal dash to the end.

Star Fox 64 Comes To Wii U Today, And You Should Definitely Not Buy It

Star Fox 64! Great game. Comes to Wii U Virtual Console today. Here’s some free advice: Don’t buy it. Advertisement As you may have heard, on March 3 Nintendo will release their next console, the Switch. As you may have also heard, Nintendo still hasn’t laid out their plans for the Switch’s catalog of classic games. We don’t know if the Switch will have its own Virtual Console (other than those monthly NES/SNES games). We don’t know which games will be available. We don’t know how much it’ll all cost. Most importantly, we don’t know whether those classic Nintendo games we keep buying on 3DS and Wii U will transfer to Switch or whether, in true Nintendo style, the company will expect us to buy them all again. (Maybe if we’re lucky we’ll get a $1-2 discount.) Advertisement One might hope that Nintendo, realizing that classic games would help bolster the Switch’s launch and that they could earn a great deal of goodwill with fans by making things more convenient, might find a way to let 3DS and Wii U owners get free Switch READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
