Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

I wasn't a big fan of Melee or Brawl. I thought that the N64 one was perfect, even though it had less characters. I was very good with Kirby and Yoshi, pretty good with Pikachu and Mario, and decent enough with DK and Captain Falcon.

One of our friends was nigh unbeatable when he used Jigglypuff. No one could touch him. Even after playing against him for hours, it was hard to get his routine down enough to come up with a good counter strategy. Generally against him I just kept my distance until he had to hit the ground and tried to be the perfect distance away to land a good forward smash attack. He was also very very good with Samus, but nothing like Jigglypuff.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

Brawl was nowhere near as good as I thought it would be. Granted I don't own a Wii, but I have put in probably 15 hours at a friends house. Huge dissapointment, and horrid multiplayer.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

Anyone saying Brawl is the best must have missed that the title says "Competitive Smash Brothers". There's no way that failure of a game is anywhere close to the other two in terms of tournament-worthiness.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

Brawl made things way too complicated. There was always too much going on and it really took away from the characters just beating each other up, imo. Melee had a little bit of this, but I thought they still did a good enough job of making it replayable.

Melee is easy in the fact that the combos are combos, and they are set. There are few combos to master, and you rarely interchange.

In original, you can constantly change combos within combos. Saying his Falcon is more technical then his N64 pikachu is lolworthy, his pikachu is simply unbeatable. He does combos that you couldnt even imagine.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

In Brawl, you can't even combo. You attack, they fall back, and everything resets to neutral.

Yes Isai did some sick stuff on the N64 but if the game is more technically demanding then Isai would have been the best player in Melee too, but he wasn't....he was only...a top ten player lol. He played pure freak in the N64 game, no doubt. But everything about Melee was faster. They ran faster, fell to the ground significantly faster, faster moves, etc.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

Brawl was such a disappointment from a competitive standpoint
I literally bought a Wii just for Brawl, too.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

I played the original and rocked my brothers as Ness (D-air is sicknasty against people who don't get it), missed out on melee, and really enjoy brawl for all its goodness. Though he's a pretty poor character, I enjoy playing Lucas in brawl, often subbing in people like Diddy Kong, snake, and toon link in for the fun of things (would agree snake is prob the best among them due to his interesting abilities / style and good tilt attacks). Luckily I don't have to deal with super awesome brawl players otherwise I'd lose favor of most of my characters real quick.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

me and my roomates literally play original smash an hour or so a day on average for like 3 years...i always stick with kirby and pikachu but it really depends on how many humans you are playing with. We usualy get all 4 so i have no problem but if im going one on one i cant really play kirby bc hes too slow. but with 4 ppl hes def my favorite. That being said I'm not the best player and one guy dominates with ness and other guy is pretty good with DK or fox if its one on one...the "gap" move is definitely key i dont know why we call it that but its the down A in the space where it just shoots them down...kirby's is pretty tough afaik the only thing that overrides his twinkletoes is captain falcon's up B cuz he grabs you but falcon in general sucks

DK's pretty much impossible to defend too with all that reach

literally never ever get tired of this game though it has to be the ultimate stoner game of all time


I think Ness is definitely the most complicated to play with but the most powerful in the right hands...i just cannot get that B up move to ever connect and get him back on the map though..im much more comfortable edge guarding with kirby and his 5 jumps


pikachu is kind of unfun but i play with him alot because his grab is so freaking quick and the power A move has alot of reach for when you throw them to side of map and they have to land close to edge...and his A move overrides tons of other moves in ties

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

As far as competitive smash goes, Melee>Brawl>64 and there really isn't much of an argument otherwise. especially now that MK has been banned.

We used to play brawl pretty much daily as well. I play Toon Link and Lucario, and got pretty decent, but nowhere near good enough to do anything competitively. My roommate is pretty significantly better than me and he has gotten destroyed at a few tournaments.

Re: Competitive Smash Brothers

Never played the original, but I always played as the Ice Climbers on the other two. I figure I sucked so bad, it couldn't hurt to have two guys. Only fighter I was ever halfway decent at was Power Stone.
