Man, I was so excited for this game when they announced it. I had such great memories of the older games on Gamecube and Wii and playing with all my friends. I hate to be a downer, but the game did not feel "finished" at launch, and this drip-feed of new characters months and months later hasn't been enough to get me back in the game. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong and will enjoy myself whenever I jump back in.
