Now this is an odd cookie. A new web series came out yesterday that takes a dark look at the events leading up to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The series is completely serious despite the funny nature of Nintendo's characters. The editing, acting and script are all surprising good, despite the weirdness of the characters' looks. I'm not sure how I feel about this one though; it feels so foreign and tries to be everything that Nintendo isn't: hardcore.
This episode is pretty long (12 minutes). So, only watch it when you have the time to spare. Give it a chance though, you'll be surprised at the level of quality. Please note however that the video is only made for people over 17. Yeah, seriously, no joke.

The cameo at the end is pretty awesome. What an interesting spin on a loveable character. Is this web series a good idea? Or am I just crazy enough of a Nintendo fan to think this is interesting?
