Super Smash Bros Brawl

I didnt realize nintendo had incorporated such fail into their game. arent there awards for that sort of thing?

I think it's more of a glitch and less of a ..."feature." And by feature I mean how much of a feature regular tripping is. As far as I've found, it isn't easily replicated, so I think it's more of a glitch. ...of course, that could also be me hoping it's a glitch and that it wasn't intended.

I have the worst luck sometimes, damnit. I was peach playing against a lucas in a tournament. I go to pick up a turnip. She reaches down, it makes the little "you picked up a turnip" sound, and I just saw something black. And by just, I mean that the lucas did a pk fire and I was just within range. I didn't even see the bomb she picked up because that pk fire blew it up before it was completely out of the ground.

Yep, I lost a stock. I also lost a stock at 13% on Lylat Cruise during the tournament. I forget how though. I do remember it was a gimp and I was very upset about it.

At my schools weekly lan event, someone got a hold of the Brawl-SD hack with l-cancelling and everything, so I tried it out. I must say it was pretty cool being able to not get completely raped for attacking with Ganondorf. I still sucked, but that's just because I'm bad at brawl. It was pretty funny though, just spamming Ganon's fair when people aren't used to it.

Then I went back to melee

Going back to Melee after playing brawl for six months was REALLY AWKWARD for me at first. Check it:

Me (Ganon) vs friend (Dr.Mario)

I get caped THREE TIMES! Auto-sweetspotting has spoiled me and now I have to relearn the timing to sweetspot properly. Also in other matches, I kept using Ganon/Falcon's side-B for recovery, which is NOT worth it in melee.

Me (Link) vs friend (YL)

Part of me is happy i'm still able to l-cancel, otherwise i'm still ehhh. Part of me is still bitter that Link, my main in every smash game, has been and apparently always will be horrible in any every smash game. I'm not even that much into LOZ like that, I just like Link's playstyle.

Anyway brawl is still fun but yay melee.

The other thing I sometimes forget is that you can't grab the ledge facing backwards. I've never actually tried hugging in melee, I just forget I don't have some luxuries, like canceling a failed, outwards facing upB with Marth by DIing toward the ledge and grabbing it. I end up doing the upB, forcing a vulnerable landing and getting punished.

Yeah, I had this problem too. Though thankfully Toon Link in Brawl ends up being a lot of fun to play with, though I tend to stick pretty heavily with Sonic. If that doesn't say I play casually with casually-minded friends, I don't know what does. XD

I stick to Sonic heavily I just don't think he's fast enough in brawl.

It's kinda hard for me to learn anyone else, except Meta Knight.

I guess I like characters that attack fast and hard.

Heh, what am I saying, that's adrenaline speaking out of slow-motion.

Nice match by the way.

In melee I just kick ass with Samus.

Kinda' why I prefer Sheik and Samus (though Samus in her suit isn't a speed demon). MetaKnight was my first used character in Brawl the day it came out). One of my faves for a given reason: speed, be it attacking or running.

Silent Mike, your D-air with Ganondorf that put Mario in hell was tight, especially since it was over the cliff.

Anyone up for some Brawl?

You know, I tried playing online, and I have to say, I hate it. It took forever for it to find a match, and I just didn't really care to play it ever again online.

That goes for mario kart wii as well. Absolutely worthless battle mode. I wish I could play Mario Kart 64 online, or at least the Super NES one (I know the latter is possible on ZSNES, I just prefer not to fool with going through that).

Oh man, Battle in MK Wii is the worst thing ever. But other than that, MK Wii owns Brawl's online by leaps and bounds.

OH YEAH. Rather than delaying input on both ends as far as character movement, the lag takes effect in the items and their effects. You won't see an item like a laid peel by another player in front of you until it's too late. The mindgame potential is huge, lol. In fact, basically the only thing you see in real time is yourself.

The other players sometimes briefly desync, and you see them fly off the side, only to appear back on the track again. Or you'll shoot a green shell, watch it go right through the other guy, and then in a second, they're right in front of you, stopped, and you just bash them out of the way.

The point system is so frustrating though. You gain 10 points per placement at high point amounts for dozens of races, and then get gimped on Mushroom Gorge and lose some 350 points. I think of sworn aloud at the computer playing that game. It's just one of those...

It's just great to have no lag in controlling your character, though.

Edit: Sure Glenn. FC? Mine's 3308 4269 0829. Edit your post please, I'd prefer we don't cramp the thread with matchmaking. They should make a matchmaking thread.

Edit 2: Added you. I'm waiting online now.

Edit 3: Sorry man. That lag was unforgivable. I can't play like that. You could have pulled out a falcon punch and I wouldn't have had time to react under the lag. gg's

Anyone up for some of my challenging "dicking around" this Friday? I would like to play someone new whom I haven't played yet, but if there's nobody else around, I'll accept anyone who comes along. Maybe HideousBeing wants another go at me picking random again? :]

IF my friend lets me use his Wii, IF he lets me play Brawl online at a time of our choosing, and IF I'm actually awake enough to play (I'm pulling an all-nighter tonight to do a lab report and study for a test), I'll take you on. Let me know when you're available and I'll see if I can do something about it.

GT, I'm so there. For the next seven hours after the time of this post, I'm free.

There may be a brief interruption if we get playing when my housecleaners come in to clean the room.

Edit: GG's again.I think I have to accept that your intuition is just better than mine.

I'm pretty much available from here on out. I'll be hosting a room for a bit, then breaking for lunch, then coming back. So first come first serve. I'm shutting the room out after someone joins.

By the way, setting up these games would be so much easier if we were doing it in real-time... i.e. chat/IM as opposed to POSTS.
