The Internet’s obsession with countdowns for countdown sites advances unabated today, with Nintendo becoming the most recent pusher of this mind-numbingly presumptuous practice. Nintendo is guilty of putting up a countdown site for the preview site of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, one of the most anticipated Wii titles expected to drop sometime this year (or decade, depending on your level of cynicism).
This game is a system seller, no doubt, but I’m still one of the ones who’s being walking on egg shells cautious about the chances of it launching in time for the 2007 holiday season. Launching against the likes of Halo 3 is going to be hard enough — but Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid might be in the mix too?! That’s some tough internal competition as well.
