As for the game itself... well, you've probably heard the cliche "plays like a dream" in reviews before, but that's quite literally the case in Super Smash Bros. Everything about this title is so surreal and completely unlikely that you half expect to wake up in a cold sweat after you close the system. This is especially true in the Smash Run mode, which drops you into a massive gauntlet filled with thirty years of random video game enemies. You'll be swarmed by everything from Dig Dug's inflatable monsters to Metroid's creepy alien bugs to that spandex-clad polar bear from Ice Climber as you hunt for stat-boosting treasures... until time runs out and you're dropped into a climactic battle against three other Nintendo heroes. You will probably lose this fight, and you may not even know what the hell is going on as the arena fills with chaos, but you'll still be happy you came.
By the way, while I was at the Best Buy, I managed to snag one of those Amiibo figurines that's got everyone so excited. I'm usually not one for collecting random game-related trinkets, but who could resist owning their own tiny little Mega Man? (Even if his emotionally void face gives me the willies.)
