At like 4:07 am, I get a knock on my door and when I peeked through a window and saw 2 government agent looking men wearing hats and sunglasses. Both of them suddenly noticed me and I guess I had to reply and say hi and politely tell them to GTFO. I brought my phone with me in case I could somehow secretly call the cops. When I saw them, they had strange appearances and mannerisms. What's strangest is that they were exactly the same as each other. I felt cold and disturbed just looking at them. Thankfully, the conversation we had didn't last long. After it ended, I returned to my room to peek back at them to see what they were doing. I had my phone ready to call 911 and they were gone. There was a car right in front of my house when I spoke to them. Them and the car just simply vanished during the like 5 or 10 second span I didn't look at them. It was so strange. I think I'm putting myself at risk for saying this, but they told me to stop watching conspiracy theory videos on youtube about the Men In Black

Well as you can see all my stuff about smash is still pretty wario related (dont get me wrong i still love the character, and i still think brawl is better so wario will always be awesome to me), but in smash4 i dont really main him anymore, i main weegee. Yes, my tag will actually be accurate for once lol. But anyways, i was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to make me a new smash 4 sig with luigi? (purple luigi to be exact). I'd really appreciate it and love you forever...maybe icon_razz. So who wants to help this scrub out with a sig? icon_smile

I feel like I'm constantly fighting common characters. Mario, Captain Falcon, Little Mac, Pikachu, Diddy, Marth, etc. This game has huge variety for all kinds of characters to use, but I feel I've already gotten a ton of MU practice against these guys. It's when I fight Jigglypuff, Fox, or Sheik that I start to tense up. Little Mac still gives me nightmares. Even though I've beaten the last few Little Macs I've played, fighting someone like Renegade or Rayquaza shows how bad the matchup can be.

Sometimes I'll lost a match and calmly say I lacked the matchup practice. I can tell someone's skill level, and sometimes we're matched, I'm stronger, or they're stronger. But when I fall for shenanigans, that's when I know I need to fight this character more. Kirby is a prime example, and Dedede is another. I've faced plenty of Meta Knights, and unlike Brawl, he's such an easy matchup now. Yet no matter how many Ness players I go up against, they all put up an immense fight.

I'm looking to face more people who use less common characters. Any of the aforementioned that I don't play against very often would be good. More Pikachu mains would be good too, so I can maintain when I fight jda7 at the tournaments and keep those Pikachu tricks fresh in my head. I feel that, though he's been a tough matchup with serious advantages, I've uncovered a lot of Pika's weaknesses to Ike and ways to take him down quickly. Once I fight Esam, I'll be able to put those further to the test.

I'll be at MomoCon and CEO this year, so I'm definitely gearing up for tournament practice. If anyone wants to play - especially if you think you can beat me - then I'd love to get some rounds in for sure. I'm free most of Thursday and most of Saturday.

Lacked and I mentioned it before slightly, but we are considering doing another community combo video, this time for brawl. I'm in talks with Blazer as well to edit his video in the future, so I'm hoping to release both around the same time. It'll be difficult I'm sure to work on two videos at the same time but whatever

I'm leaning toward the name Re:Birth as the title of the brawl video.
This one shouldn't take as long to edit, I have an idea for what type of video we are doing, I just need clips which, since brawl isn't retarded like sm4sh on the replay side of things, should be easy for you to send. There are hundreds of guides for it, sending me the rp file is the easiest way to get them to me.

Don't expect me to go into the politics of what brawl needs to do or be in the future in the video. I'm not an offline community figurehead, I'm just another online player who just so happens to have some experience with editing. 
1. Full video will be dolphin 1080p 60fps and posted on here, reddit, and this time on smashboards. Most of my content seems to be well recieved on here and reddit so I can guarantee the video is going to garnish a lot of views. 

2. There is no contest this time, so if you think your content is good enough suggest a font alongside whatever clips you submit. Just don't submit an ugly font since it makes our jobs harder.

3. I WOULD PREFER IF LACKED AND I RECORD ANY REPLAYS WE RECEIVE. Again, not trying to be rude to those of you who recorded stuff already, but dolphin's quality is very very good, and if there is a disjoint between that and say a 480p clip, you will notice it. 

4. Again I'm doing this because I want to help out in any way that the brawl community could use help and as another boost to my channel. I have an idea of what type of style I'm growing with when I edit combo video's and this brawl video will be a lot of fun to edit. 

NOW FOR SOME GUIDELINES:

1. I WILL NOT EXCEPT CLIPS THAT CONSIST OF ONLY THREE HITS. SAME GOES FOR 1 OR 2. A METEOR OR SPIKE OR KNEE OR FALCON PUNCH IS NOT A COMBO. 

2. TEAM STRINGS ARE WELCOMED AND ENCOURAGED.

3. I WILL HAVE NO BIAS WHEN SELECTING CLIPS FROM PERSON OR PERSONS. 

 That's about it. If you have an sd card you really have no excuse for not participating. 


O̶r̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶g̶o̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶p̶l̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶o̶t̶h̶e̶r̶ ̶b̶l̶o̶g̶ ̶h̶o̶w̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶r̶e̶'̶s̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶o̶ ̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶s̶t̶e̶a̶d̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶b̶e̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶d̶u̶c̶t̶i̶v̶e̶

I guess the Blue Bomber was meant to do company to my Blue Blur.

If you don't count with anything to record like in my case, you can use the Wii U Image Share site from your Wii U and use it to upload the pic to Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr and then post it here.

E2C13 Singles: Dynomyte (Yoshi) vs. JBrockPony(Sonic):
https://youtu.be/AtYFgOCU_qY


This is from E2C 13 Chicago, Illinois. I made it into top 32 bracket, however didn''t play to my full potential. I got bopped by this amazing yoshi you see here. I later got knocked out in losers by this random bowser(Decent bowser, player came off as being a bit of a prick tho >_>... ). 

I want to make note that I made top 8 in E2C 11. If I can find other videos of E2C 11 for some more comparison my my progress as a Sm4sh Sonic main I'll revise.  

Sooo with that said. Any tips? What did I do wrong in this match? What should I do in this matchup?

I notice alot of his aerials were used in a way that aren't punishable while stilling being super aggressive. I want a way to combat that as well.

This is to be treated as just a rumor and I’m not entirely sure of its legitimacy, but here we have it. 

Iwata apologizes again for the Zelda delay and announced a new title for Wii U, which will release in Winter 2015 instead: 

Paper Mario (working title): first trailer shown, uses the best parts of the first four titles of the series, developed by Intelligent Systems, more infos at E3 2015. 

Pokemon Rumble World will be presented, releases on April 17th 2015 in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The game supports the Pokemon amiibo from the Smash Bros. Collection. 

SNES titles will be released in the 3DS eShop, the Wii U eShop will get GB and GBC titles. There will also be some cross-play for VC titles already bought and which are available on both systems. (My note: If you bought one game on the 3DS, you can also play it on your Wii U. No need to buy it twice.) The SNES, GB and GBC titles will be released after the presentation. 

The Web eShop will be presented. Developed by Nintendo and DeNA. You can log in with your NNID and use the normal eShop functions. If the console is in stand-by, games bought on the eShop will be automatically downloaded. The Web eShop will implemented both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. Planned launch: April 2015.

There is also a mode called Origins. When you scan the amiibo via the NFC reader, you’ll be able to play a segment of the first game the amiibo appeared in. (My note: If you scan Link, you should be able to play a part of the first Legend of Zelda is my understanding of this.) This app will be available for free in May 2015 for Wii U and 3DS.

no world has ever seen
one girl
so silly and
so blind to a blessing

the upper echelon of
philosophers and gurus pose questions
when they see someone so grand
settle for second

silly blessed girl
foolishly falling freely far into
pits of petulance
please for the sake of those with less elegance
stop

silly impetuous girl
please for the peace of mind of those with not a piece of mind
have some patience
in the right time you'll find some peace of mind
listen

even when the world ain't seemin' heaven sent
even when your mind is piled with regret
and even when you can't lay your head down and dream of a life filled with magnificence
wait
stop
please
listen
remember
your epithet
silly impetuous girl that is also blessed

-Tacket (3/30/15)

I've been getting into the habit of bringing my Wii U to the weeklies at Level Up. Instead of paying $10, I pay $5 if I bring it. However, I run the risk of damaging my system. As gentle as I was with the Wii, whenever I brought it around, it still crashed a few years later. All my data was wiped, and I had to pay $75 for repairs plus $10 for shipping ($85 in all).

My Wii U HDMI cable already burned out because I switch it between the stream (Elgato) and my own TV, so I'm worried about accidentally mishandling the console. Basically, what happened is that I kept getting a black screen and I know it's because the HDMI cable has seen too much abuse, even though I've tried to be careful. Anything I should know about bringing it around that can reduce the chance of breaking it?

For the record, I put it in one of those eco-friendly bags you can get at Publix and whatnot.

Luigi. Like, Luigi before Luigi's Mansion, before he became a coward and depressive. I used to like Luigi a lot, especially in Melee. He was still goofy, but at least he smiled all the time and somehow showed self-confidence. Also I really liked his voice acting and his design. But after Luigi's Mansion everything change. He got PTSD and now he is... Ugh...

RIP my childhood Luigi

Before you start: Some parts of this MAY be found offensive by certain readers. Do not read if you are easily or semi-easily offended. If you read this and get offended by some parts herein, you only have yourself to blame. PG15 warning,etc.

Alright now I can write whatever I want without having to stress about reactions. Right?  
Also, disclaimer: Everything I write here is solely my very own opinion (which might sometimes be exaggerated on purpose,even) and I'm not claiming anything to be a fact.


Most important matters first:

DK thoughts:
DK got overall nerfed in the transition from brawl to smash4. I used to hear lots of opinions about DK being better now and thriving more in the new game engine. Idk if the general opinion on that has been changed, but to me it's clear that he is worse off than he was in brawl. 

DK nerfs as I see them:
1. Green color. The brawl dark green was cool, the new green makes him look silly and dumb. Only good colors now are standard, black, white and maybe the one with the blue tie. I only use standard.

2. Less overall killing power. Smashes and DK punch seem to be killing at higher percents than they used to. Fsmash has a stupid gap where it doesn't hit people. DK punch takes an extra wind and feels weaker, also has a sourspot hit that is plain unnecessary. Side-B ground bury is useless, people get out as early as they want to, and if you hit them while grounded they don't go anywhere. His new upB is alright, but the old one was better. DK also doesn't really survive as well as he used to with momentum cancelling gone. So to me his moveset is kind of nerfed, he doesn't kill as fast as he could in brawl, and he dies a bit earlier due to momentum cancelling being gone.

Make his smashes a bit stronger, fix DK punch sourspot, remove Fsmash blindspot, make the side-B grounded mechanics work like they used to. And I'd be happier.
Sakurai, you were afraid that DK would be too strong before game launch and had to emergency nerf him? You are an idiot.. Now fix him.

Regarding DK's custom moves:
I prefer vanilla DK. Kong cyclone seems dumb and broken to me, I think it should be banned. Jump off the ledge, upB and cancel the sucktion stuff by grabbing the ledge. If someone was over you, they will get sucked down without hope of recovering, regardless of what their percentage is. I think. I don't play much with custom moves and I don't test stuff, so I'll leave this matter to those who do.

Anyway, yeah, I think DK gets better with custom moves (Kong cyclone in particular, maybe hot slap+jumping headbut too) but I'm not gonna play DK jumping around and making a dumb tornado upB my single most used follow-up move. There isn't anything DK-like with playing him like that imo. Also, I think most of his custom moves are dumb and make no sense. Why would he have electric and fire effects to his moves? Is he a pokemon? Where does it even come from, and what is DK like at all with them? I do kind of like his tornado punch for the silly things that can happen when you use it, but I don't like it more than his standard punch. And it's kind of dumb too. His side-B special options however feel more in-synch with the character and make a lot of sense. I don't have anything against those.

Oh and btw, I still find DK the most fun to play as, despite thinking he's got nerfed overall. I don't really care what tier DK is in, as long as I have fun playing him. It WOULD be more fun if side-B grounded mechanics were more like they were in brawl, though...


General Smash4 thoughts: Kind of brawl2 with no tripping and cheesy chaingrabs. Faster and more combos. Real spikes. I like smash4 a bit better than I did brawl, I think. I see no reason to go back. I also don't get the fuss about 2 vs 3 stocks, and people saying smash4 is slower than brawl. Are you guys serious? My personal experience is the opposite, smash4 matches are definitely taking less time for me than what brawl matches did. And I clearly remember watching lots of brawl streams where the timer DID run out, or almost ran out. Have people forgotten planking? Sure it's possible for smash4 matches to take forever when you have some players that make it their strategy to go for time outs. And I guess some matchups are just dumb like that too. Campy villager/Rob/DHD/Pacman/whatever. But now, sheik and diddy are doing most of the hard work on streams and stuff it seems. I still haven't seen a match involving sheik or diddy that took particularly long. I'm wondering if Dabuz timing out that Pacman player is all the reason for the 3 stock hate? Cause really, generally speaking when I compare past memories of brawl streams to what I'm seeing in smash4, to me it seems like Brawl was the more time consuming. My opinion though, please don't hate or rant icon_smile




Other smash4 character thoughts and expectations when I face them:

Bowser. As a DK player I used to pretty much view this as a free win back in brawl. Not so now. Bowser is super fast, zooms around the stage like sonic on speed and makes it hard as hell to land on stage. He also got amazing range and strength, and he does not die easily. Bowser kills easier than DK, and he survives longer. With DK now not having any spectacular kill strength, bowser has become a tough matchup.
Expectations when playing Bowsers: Above averagly skilled players, will definitely try to cheese you to death at 30% with an overpowered Fsmash.

Captain Falcon:
Another free win gone rogue. He's super fast, combos, and kills easily. Surpassed DK just like bowser did, and the fact that these two now seem to have the edge over DK is really annoying. THEY WERE MY FREE WINS DAMNIT. Liked playing Falcon since smash64 and still do. He is more fun than ever.
Expectations: Decently skilled, will taunt and try to be cool.


Diddy: Always hated Diddy. He's better than DK in the smash games, but why? Thats NOT canon and it doesn't make any sense to me. So in addition to Diddy now straight up having become the most annoying thing to watch in smash4, I bear an extra grudge because they make him better than DK. Take him out of the games please!

Ganondorf: Still sucks. For the first time ever I don't like playing as him anymore. Taking away his no-lag downair ruined him for me. Ganon with a custom downB suddenly becomes sort of a threat since he can actually recover well.

Link. Why are there so many people playing Link, and why are they mostly so bad? Seems like huge Zelda franchise fans have bought smash for the sole reason of defendig their heros honor or something.
Expectations: Horrible skill level. Will try to shoot you a few times, but will mostly roll around all over the place and down/upsmash you whenever they can or can't. Will also try to get in way too many Fsmashes, and releases both hits even if you stand on the other side of the stage. If you taunt, they will, out of honor, refuse to hit you. I think it's possible to beat them in for glory by taking off the first stock then taunt spamming, as their sense of honor will keep them from hitting you at all before time runs out.

Toonlink: Generally speaking the same as Link, just worse and more annoying. Has no sense of honor at all, and if you taunt he will run over as fast as he can and finally get in that beloved upsmash of his. Will also try to get you with downair every time he is above you, and will not learn his lesson after getting DK punched to death for it several matches in a row. Also one of the worst characters to deal with in laggy online matches ever.

Greninja players: Terribly skill level, roll around everywhere. Chief accomplishment for each match is randomly getting in 4 consecutive hits in a row with downair. Apart from that, not much to be happy about for em.

Little Mac: Used to see LOTS of him on for glory, but guess they all got sick of being thrown out and gimped at 0. Apart from DK and Falcon, Little Mac is the only smash 4 character I really enjoy playing now. It wouldn't hurt him to get a little recovery buff. 

Think I'm happy with that. Don't know why I wrote all this, but for some reason I just really wanted to..

I'm ok with what he said. Up to now i haven't any problem with home console TLoZ games, OoT was fantastic, so it was MM, WW (FSA was ok) and TP (didnt play SS), so if they can exceed them, they can make, like he said, the best TLoZ.

Well at least this year i'll still get Bravely Second, Star Fox Wii U and maybe Xenoblade Chronicles X.
