“There are things that I don’t need my folks to know that I did – that I play Xbox Live a lot. They don’t need to have the image of their 37-year-old son with a headset talking to his buddies about going to war.”

Here is what I think about those top 10 suggestions for SSBB:

1. Worldwide Simultaneous Release – agree
2. Increase the Multiplayer Number – agree
3. Downloadable Content – agree
4. More Characters – agree
5. Voice Chat – agree
6. Unlockable Incentive Content Included On Other Games – don’t care
7. DS Connectivity – don’t care
8. Capcom-Inspired 2D Fighting Mode – don’t care
9. Online Stats and Rankings – agree
10. Create-a-Character – don’t care

Some other comments/suggestions I have about SSBB:

I know he is available as an Assist Trophy, but I think Little Mac from Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! would make a great playable character.

These aren’t Nintendo creations, but they would make great SSBB fighters:

– Simon Belmont from Castlevania
– The Bubble Bobble dinosaurs or whatever they are called
– Mega Man
– Those anime looking high school fighters from River City Ransom
– Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden
– The dudes from Contra, although I am not sure how well they would do in hand-to-hand combat

Finally, I wish they had cut down on the load times. It’s not bad, but a minor annoyance.
