Some reasons care~
They got the dante that nearly everyone hates.
They got 2 coles, which by what quit alot of people say was a waste of a spot.
Obviously the only reason thet got fat princes was because they needed a female character.
NO jrpg characters which is one of the biggest let down.
All in all they could have easily replaced some character with other who derserve the spots.
^you can turn off hazards, knockback has been reduced, you can re-map controls (its been confirmed)
Can someone link me to where they said you can turn off hazards, I vaguely remember hearding that somewhere else, but I don't remember where. If this is true then add that to another thing that is better then smash. While Melee only had a few annoying ones Brawl had a ton of stage hazards that were down right annoying.
Knockback reduced? Again link please! I am not above saying I am ignorant to some of these things, I mean who isn't the game just started a beta XD. This is great as I believe this will open up for some more interesting combos I hope it resets if they wait for them to recover so people can do more ridiculous combos.
I figured you could remap the controls I kinda hope they go the Brawl+/PM route were you can pretty much assign anything to anything including grab to buttons, attacks to the stick, etc.
This game will never overtake Smash, it may get "as good as" one day, but Smash and it's popularity is arguably the reason this game even exists.
I think some of you are getting carried away and stroking your inner sony fanboy a little too hard. For the record I play and have played almost all consoles and I'm a fan of all three companies.
Ja ja ja ja brawl is better than this game , the online also sucks in this game, and this game is more unbalanced and some "stars" aren't exclusives of playstation like big daddy.
