Today brings us the news that Nintendo aren't working on paid Super Smash Bros DLC right now, and Masuhiro Sakurai concentrated the team's entire efforts on a fully-featured standalone. We absolutely love this approach, because if DLC does emerge down the line, it will be an expansion developed after the fact rather than cut content. If true, this is what we like to call a class act even though it should be the default way of doing business.
In other news, Halo: The Master Chief Collection's matchmaking may finally get fixed following a major patch due today. The inconsistent netcode has been tantalisingly broken during the week since launch, breaking enough to nearly break your spirit, but working just enough to tempt you to try one more time. Here are your headlines.
