'Smash Bros. Brawl' Friend Code Woes


Posted December 3, 2007 - By bleahy

Today is a sad day in Smash Bros. history. It has been revealed that Brawl will in fact use friend codes that will be unique to the game.

Just like other Wii games, it will be a terrible chore to populate a friends list with people you know and IMPOSSIBLE to add random people you play.

As previously revealed, you will not be able to talk with strangers and no records will be saved in public play. You won't even get their names or friend codes.

Other "features" included in this online "solution" is the "benefit" of having all game participants be required to OK each person joining the game. This affects friends-only.

Nintendo... not everyone that has a Wii is a 12 year-old kid that needs to be protected from people on the internet. How about you create an adults-only online that will even begin to come close to what Xbox Live offers?

Still, we'll get Brawl anyway cause it's so damn good, but we don't like this online play one bit.
