This is where you rant and rave that you haven't even looked at the forums since midnight on Saturday because you've been playing Brawl since the instant it came out.

I was playing it over the interweb with some friends... and even though I won every match, it wasn't very fun. Any amount of lag really saps the fun out of a game like that.

But seriously. Smash Brothers. Omigod.

Man, I have good memories of SBM on the gamecube at a friend's house. Brawl might just be enough to make me buy a Wii... but then I want to make a PC. Dammit! I don't know that it's out here yet.

What, you got an Xbox and lost a toilet?

And the answer is no, I hadn't got those jokes out of my system. It is a neat console though... and I really want Brawl :(

Ok, so I've been playing brawl, and I must say, the most overpowered characters so far are R.O.B, and Ike.

Rob because he has that insane Jetpack/B-Up jump which can literally send you to another side of the stage when knocked offscreen (I've done it. Its crazy), and that laser eye thing which just slices through everyone.). Plus he's pretty heavy, and has insane smashes in midair, and on the ground as well. That taunt he does is pretty funny too.

Ike, I have only played once, but he seems to have quite the ability to kick ass...or be just fucking annoying whenever someone plays him.

Pit, Sonic, and Snake are all pretty cool. Pit cause he reminds me of Tyreal from Diablo 2, but thats pretty much it. Oh and that blue arrow thing is kinda cool, along with the wings. Metaknight awesome, but he seems to have a serious lack of finishing smashes, which is kinda a letdown. He seems to just be rather annoying than dangerious.

Oh, and every time I use one of King Dedede's smash moves, I feel an insane need to scream "BLAMN!!!". Seriously though, he's insane to play.

Well, both Nezumi and I are old Smash Brothers pros. We go to tournaments and stuff (we were signed up for a tournament taking place before Brawl was released). Ones with hundreds of people and I end up getting stuff like 3rd place, so I must be good. Nez is exactly as good as I am as well, we manage to tie in stock matches. Yeah. I know. Insane...

...anyway. All of this I am saying just so you know this opinion isn't from just some dude that knows nothing about the game. R.O.B. is NOT overpowered. His up-B is the second best as far as range right after Pit, but it isn't an attack and is easily interruptible. He has no fast way of bolting back onto the level (like Fox's up-B or side-B). This is VERY BAD. His attacks are fairly strong, but not even nearly strong enough for how slow they are. When I played against Nezumi, who was using R.O.B., and I was using someone fast like Pit or Fox he couldn't even fight me. He'd fare far better with someone like Ganondorf, who is slow (his forward smash is significantly faster, higher damage, better priority and probably even longer range than any of R.O.B.'s finishing moves.) but hits so fucking hard that you can be killed in a single attack. Not to say Ganondorf is very good or anything.

If there wasn't Pit, who can glide and use an absurdly versatile and long range up-B like R.O.B.'s, then I'd think much higher of him. Not to mention all of Pit's attacks are faster than R.O.B.'s by a wide margin. Pit's air moves are scary. Also, R.O.B.'s laser? You're joking, right? That's gotta be one of the worst projectiles in the game. It's damage over time is way too low to be of any real use. Even when fully charged, which takes about half a match, it does like 9% damage... 9%!? C'mon! Even Peach's shitty projectile can do better than that!

I'm both happy and sad at the same time that they nerfed Fox. Obviously he needed it, being the only character in the first tier in Melee, but alas, I played him a lot and liked having an unfair advantage against people who were using any other character during tournaments (poor, poor Samus...). His all-powerful shine-dash is gone, along with wave-dashing entirely, which I am one of the few pros to be happy with. His moves all look and feel the same, but his movement speed was cut noticeably and his best finishing attacks (up smash, and up-A in the air) were reduced enormously. You used to be able to easily kill Falco at 90% with an up-A or up smash in Final Destination, now he has to be at like 140%... yikes. Also his shine is no longer a veritable insta-kill over the edge of the level. Grr.

About Ike... I like that his counter is just as fast as Marth's, and that he hits nearly as hard as Ganondorf, but his air moves are comically slow and his recovery is shamefully bad (very probably the worst, since his up-B gets caught on the bottom of things so easily and it definitely counts as a Trojan). You get that guy off the ground and he can't do anything. He can barely even jump across that gap in the Bridge of Eldin. I'll really have to play as and against him more though before I can give a final verdict.

Sheik, one of the high-tier characters from Melee has been mostly unchanged. Which is good because all of her A-moves were godly fast and easy to combo off of and her forward-A in the air was hands down the most dangerous air move in the game. Sadly, they didn't give her any B-moves. Her forward-B still serves no purpose whatsoever and her projectile only works to kill the inattentive. Her up-B has the bonus of being able to set off explosives without hurting you now, at the very least. One little thing they changed makes it so that I will never play her again. They turned her down-A into a Trojan. God damn it. Some people can handle that, but my style of play centers far too much around finishing people with down-A moves over the edge of the level. Oh well.

I'm semi-anxiously awaiting the chance to fight a skilled Ness/The Lufa player so that I can find out if they don't suck. Ness seems much better with his jump speed increase, but who knows...

Wow, that brings back so many good memories of melee. I'm a bit sad to hear that Fox has been changed; he was awesome. A friend and I once went Fox and Falco in a team and used the lasers to get someone to 999% damage... Then he went and used something like the home-run bat on the guy. Good times. How's Link (obvious question)? I saw a comic, well, basically depicting him being raped by Snake. Is this so?

In other news DIE WINDOWS FUCKING DIE. It was downloading updates; up pops a window saying "Would you like to restart?" and it interprets my key presses as "Yes". I wish death and destruction upon the Microsoft coders who allowed any window type to try to gain focus by jumping to the front. I'll work in whichever damn window I want.

OK sorry, had to get that out my system. Continue with the Brawl goodness :D

But even then, I had my honor. The largest Banora White tree grew on a wealthy man's estate. It was rumored, that those apples tasted the best, but I never stole from that tree, because the wealthy man's son, was my friend...

Link is vastly improved. He still feels a little sluggish, but it's mostly in his movement speed. His attacks have gotten much quicker, so he doesn't get anally raped by all the fast characters anymore. He doesn't have the really bad cooldown that Marth has after his sword swings either.

Snake, on the other hand, is a very strange character. Almost all of his attacks are ranged or indirect. This means he can utterly wreak havoc in a 4-way fight, but is pretty worthless in a 1v1. Nobody is going to be dumb enough to step on your mines in a 1v1, and you have as much chance as they do of being tossed into one. His forward smash is very powerful, but slow enough to be of no real use in a 1v1 as well. Other than his grenades, his ranged and indirect attacks are all powerful enough to kill. This, once again, is immensely useful as long as you're not in a 1v1. In the end, I have to say that Snake is mostly a "just for fun" kind of character. And if you've played the game, WTF is up with that weird thing he does when you hold the A button and no direction??? Seriously. What is that? Is he trying to pretend he's a jackhammer?

Haven't played it, I don't think it's out in Britain yet. But Snake does sound interesting. Any other characters of note?

In all seriousness, Jigglypuff isn't bad. His air control is by far the best, he can make circles around anyone else off the ground. His moves are all fast and pack enough punch to kill. His final smash is nothing to be proud of, seeing as it's just a pink-colored Snorlax... but really, his only drawback is his weight. That mofo can't take a single attack from Ganondorf or Ike past 50-60% without kissing his ass goodbye.
