Directed by Kirby creator Masahiro Sakurai, SSB brings together various Nintendo series and pits them against each other in one epic battle. The gameplay of the Super Smash Bros. series is unique. None of the characters have health bars, for one thing. Rather, they all have a damage gauge. When a character is attacked, their damage gauge increases, which in turn makes them weaker and easier to knock off the stage. Falling off of the stage results in a KO. Another unique aspect of SSB is that, unlike most fighting games, characters' movesets are very simplistic. Each character has their own set of ground and aerial attacks, which can be directed with the control stick. Tapping the control stick in one direction and holding the attack button charges up a smash attack, which is quite useful for knocking opponents off the stage. Characters also have four special moves, which can be activated by pressing the special move button and holding the control stick up, sideways, down, or leaving it neutral. If you've never played a smash brothers game, but are thinking about it, then now is the best time too! There are so many resources available on how to play each game, and even if you just want to play for fun, you can emulate every single one of the games except for Smash 4. [U][B] The Games[/B][/U] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/KD7XB4M.png[/IMG] The game from 1999 that started it all. Released on the Nintendo 64, Super Smash Bros is often overlooked today, but on its release proved wildly popular. Most people play the American NTSC version (due to bugs that are in the game, higher frame rate, consistency across regions), it's well worth playing it for a different experience to the other Smash Brothers. One of the key differences is the abundance of 0 - death combos. You can be carried across from one side of the stage all the way to the other in a single string, it's nuts. However, due to a smaller roster of 12 players, every character is mostly viable. This means you can play, have fun and not worry too much about the intricacies of the game when you play casually. [URL="http://smashboards.com/threads/smash-64-index-read-here-first.350305/"] Read more about getting into Smash 64[/URL] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/WPbMuba.png[/IMG] The most well known of the series, Melee has established itself with a huge competitive community even after 14 years since its release, featuring at huge FGC events such as EVO. That's not just why people play it though, they play it because it's an incredibly fun, technical game. Nothing is quite like landing rests against your friends, or performing a Falcon Punch to Knee for the first time against a CPU. Melee has 26 playable characters, so you will always be able to find someone to suit your play style. If you don't want to play against people, there are numerous single player modes. In adventure mode, you'll be taking your character through various game franchise scenarios to kill a demonic hand. You can also perform in "events" of increasing difficulty, and collect some trophies along the way.

This year there has been a huge number of tournaments, and most evenings there is a meetup playing live on Twitch. It can seem tricky at first, but after a few practice sessions of movement and getting used to the controls, you'll be triple wave shinning into rest into knee in no time. [IMG]http://puu.sh/muuPV/bca70a187c.png[/IMG] Brawl is the third entry to the series, and perhaps the most controversial of the games. It features a strong single player campaign, a huge amount of content and several now fan-favourite new characters. It was also the first of the series to feature online play, although the quality of this online was debatable. Brawl these days is mostly dead and unplayed competitively, due to certain decisions by the dev team such as tripping and slower gameplay. However despite this, the strong singleplayer experience makes the game still worth playing today. Project M is a comprehensive mod for Brawl which makes the gameplay more in-line with Melee's gameplay, as well as offering a ton of brand new custom content for levels, characters and more. It brings back gameplay features such as wave dashing, quick movement and large ad-hoc combos across the stage. It is considered by many to be the definitive version of Smash, however it has had a lack of support from Nintendo and Tournaments, and as such has a small (but dedicated) community. Until recently it was in active development, when it suddenly ceased development without releasing the final update. You can find leaked versions of this last update (either v3.61 or v4) online very easily, so I won't link it here. There are multiple ways to play PM on your Wii, but for every "mostly legal" way you'll need a NTSC copy of the Brawl disc. There are other ways you can play however, such as a pre-packed ISO, or loading the brawl ISO off a USB. If you're emulating PM, you can play it online using Dolphins Netplay feature. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/s9m1eP0.png[/IMG] The latest installment of the Smash Bros series, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS was released over a year ago. It is characterised by having the easiest gameplay to get into, with buffered controls and fluid movement. This means it is much more accessible to the wider audience. While the gameplay is not as fast as that of Melee, it definitely is a lot of fun to play, since many issues that Brawl had (R.I.P. random tripping, 2008 - 2014) were fixed and it having a faster gamespeed than its predecessor. With two more characters being added to the roster in early february, Smash 4 has 58 different playable characters and a plethora of stages to play on. Of course it still has classic and all-star mode like the previous titles did as single player content, with a few added modes such as Smash Run, Smash Tour, or Master/Crazy Orders, but it lost adventure mode, which has been around since melee. But even with some content being cut, it still has an overwhelming amount of new additions that make the game amazingly fun to play. [IMG]http://puu.sh/zDSM3/527ec00965.png[/IMG] At the end of the Nintendo Direct on March 8th, 2018 a new entry to the Super Smash Bros. series has been announced for the Nintendo Switch. Not too much is known about the game, but we do know that Splatoon's Inklings and Link from Breath of the Wild will make an appearance.

CEO Dreamland finished yesterday, and it was a real good tournament. Melee ended with Mew2king beating his demons and actually winning a major, beating SFat and HBox along the way. Smash 4 was won by Zero, but not before Mr. R made it look like he was gonna reset the bracket. Then Zero decided to just destroy him: [vid]https://clips-media-assets.twitch.tv/25067993728-offset-5532.mp4[/vid] I also found the vods for the last event I went too, you can find me drowning in pools in Smash 4 B-) [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BjtFIT0HIM[/media] I need to start practicing Smash 4 again before I enter more tournaments for it, I only really play Melee these days. If you wanna play some online matches in Smash 4 then hit me up :~)

Is Smash Bros. for Switch coming out or what?
Maybe we should wait for games to be announced before we ask if they're coming out. If there's nothing at E3 it's definitely not happening.
Our college's gaming club invited over some folks from a different college for a smash doubles Tourney. We (everyone from our college) got (hurr durr) fucking smashed, even our local tryhard couldn't do much.
[QUOTE=PSI Guy;52118934]Maybe we should wait for games to be announced before we ask if they're coming out.

To keep people on their toes, it will be a port of the 3DS version as a Virtual Console title.

Naturally third parties get the best hitboxes. Remember Snake's brawl up-tilt? [IMG]https://www.ssbwiki.com/images/a/ae/Snake_Up_Tilt_Disjointed_Hitbox_Brawl.png[/IMG] If we get Smash 5 and it continues piling up on the guest characters expect the tier list to be S+: everything not Nintendo-owned.
I made one of these framedata visualization things for Zelda. [t]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C98th9MWsAAcXYi.jpg[/t] Her up tilt and down tilt almost look busted on this

I'm going to a local doubles tournament on saturday, and my partner and I are gonna be playing bowser and falcon/mario respectively. Any tips? I've never played in a tournament setting and I'm afraid I'm gonna whiff hard.
Practice (online works) with them. Specifically practice grab follow-ups, so you know how far various grabs throw enemies so you can catch them after your partner throws them.
took a game off of #6 on NEOH pr. improvement boys!

[QUOTE=The Duke;52155450]NEVER GIVE UP HOPE[/QUOTE] Someone apparently played some Super Metroid.
[QUOTE=The Duke;52155450]NEVER GIVE UP HOPE[/QUOTE] Not working for me.
I won a Melee tournament that started over a bottle of Fanta. Victory tastes orange.
Apparently I became the Zelda representative for the Sm4sh Assembly. If you don't know what the Sm4sh Assembly is, it's basically a gathering of moderators/admins from the different Smashcords to organize crewbattles and organize things in general.
