Q:Whats the deal with Bionic Commando VC, is it really the Nazi/violence reference?
A:Ign has no idea. Think it could be the Nazi reference, not the violence. Could also be those Next-Gen titles having something to do with it, Ign has no idea.
Q: Holiday titles ?
A: Mario party jokes. The same old Pikmin, AC talk. Confirms Kid Icarus again. Matt used interesting choice of words in this part “Maybe we’ll see 1080 officially”. won’t look too into it, it was just in the midst of talking about potential titles.
Q: Does Brawl’s Online knock the game some post review points now with MK online??
A: Brawl’s online is broken, it sucks. Its still not working.
