Anyone else love this series?  Melee is still my favorite, but I thought Brawl wasn't THAT bad (with the exception of the tripping, and Meta Knight).  What are your thoughts on the upcoming 3DS/WiiU games?  I am SUPER PSYCHED for Mega Man, though the lack of native gamecube controller support kind of bothers me.

The whole gamecube controller thing you mentioned is unfortunate as I for one couldn't play brawl with a wii remote.

I have sooo many hours into the series.

Cant wait for the new ones, but I do hope they nerf Meta Knight. Such a spammy character :(

What characters do you guys like to play as? I am a huge link fan, but thats more or less personal bias, loving the series and all.

Well apparently it's going to be compatible with the WiiU Pro Controller, but it's kind of obnoxious to have to drop $50 per player on controllers just so you don't have to use the damn wiimote.

Link was my favorite in the original Smash Bros.  In melee I mained Sheik, and in Brawl my favorite was Diddy Kong.  I played the game obsessively back in the melee days, though, so I was pretty proficient with all the characters.

I love a good bit of link based on the fact he is from my favourite game series, but I am also quite partial to a bit of captain falcon

I played in a Melee charity tourney at my college years ago. I won. First time I had ever played the series.

 

I was unimpressed.

I like the series, but I'm not in love with it. I really actually got bored of it rather quickly compared to some people. I mean sure those 2 weeks were fun, but after that boredom was a butt face. 

 

Oh and I still don't know if I should get a 3ds. I mean Nintendo is still #1 in my opinion, mostly because of the games, but I still don't know. I get paid over $200 - $220 tomorrow so I could buy that over an iPhone which I don't really need over the lack of my shyness and friends.

Honestly, I love gaming on my pc, but consoles will always have their place.

I love Smash Bros, I've played it since the original on N64. Played Melee casually with friends when I was younger, and Brawl for a month or two while I owned a Wii.

 

I like the varied cast, the various playable characters, and the oddly unbalanced balance the game has.

 

Nowadays, though, I can't play to save my life. The controls are just too counterintuitive for me to get good at SSB at a serious level.

 

 

My favorite character was always Link, then Bowser, then Ganondorf/Cap Falcon

I used to play casually but my brother found a website with competitions in our area and made me learn how each characters frames work, the tier list, adv techs, I guess I'm a competition gamer now, the sad thing is any friends who play casually get bored because I destroy them now. I will never be good enough to win in singles but my doubles play is quite good and we came 6th in Australia for it and 3rd in sydney.

 

SSBB I play everyone so I can counterpick but my two big mains are lucas (bottom of middle tier) and Olimar (3rd on the teir list). I love lucas for his mobility and the fact that so few people play a good lucas that they don't know how to react to a good one. Olimar is just fantastic though for his ground game which can't be beaten, his off stage game is horrible though.

Olimar is pretty naff, I think. Definitely one of the weakest characters. I play Samus and Kirby primarily but I like to give the Ice Climbers a go now and again just because they don't seem to get much use.

I agree, Olimar was pretty crappy, but I do love Pikmin. I liked Fox and Falco. I used to just play kirby and ness over and over again, I also like marth and roy.

If you think that Olimar is pretty naff then you should know he has won many tournaments and if you think that Ice Climbers doesnt get much play time since they are second highest in the tier list after Meta Knight then watch this video.

 

 

Thats the Ice Climbers chain grab and is the reason they are second on the tier list.

 

 

hes is a scary scary olimar, constant pressure which forces the other player to have to approach and you will see olimars grabs make approaching incredibly dangerous.

I luv Ice climbers ever since melee and I played them a lot. Oh, and I stand slightly corrected, only because I think Olimar is naff, that doesn't mean someone can not be good with him and win tournaments. I just think he is weakish.

If you use Olimars Whistle within 5 frames of being hit he gains super armour which means he gets no knockback. Meaning if you learn the timing you cant be killed.
