Given that the Red Alloy is based off of Captain Falcon, it's probably a given that he's included as well. Should there be a indication if a certain character is unofficially confirmed?

Sticker power-ups. As if the level creator weren't enough it's now an innovative ARPG. I was hoping to play some other games in the next decade, but it looks like I'm all booked up come Brawl.

The game's soundtrack has been ripped and I managed to find it on a forum (warning: there are spoilers in the list of track names on that site).

It's long, totaling at just over 300 tracks with only 20 of them less than 0:30 in length. There are a number of fan favorites on there (e.g. Bramble Blast from Donkey Kong Country 2, Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time), with some arranged versions and some originals. I've only started listening to it, but it's pretty awesome so far.

I finally found three friends who were half-decent at Melee today!

We made a couple of black holes, then tried again with 2 controllers and 2 computers (we still got it to work!)... then I pulled of the single most stylish win possible with Kirby: Grab someone near to an edge when both you and they are on one life, and throw to the left of right (depending on the edge you're at) - then not die first (as Kirby usually ands up on the bottom for this throw). I am in an extremely good mood right now.

I was a little upset that Pokemon trainer was a new character. But now that I saw the screenshot of him using his finishing move thing where the little dialog box pops up and says "It's super effective!", all is forgiven.

Also, Diddy Kong might be kinda cool.

I hate that. I was playing with someone who I can easily destroy normally, and he loved abusing special moves, and then he started doing that. It had been a while since I'd played, so I'd forgotten how you break free from those (I think I was pressing a while you were supposed to waggle the control stick), and was hence defenseless. he did that 3 or 4 times.

That's not the cheapest win ever. Maybe in Smash Bros I dunno. Anyway, when I got Soul Calibur 2 for the GameCube, my PS2 owning friend came over to play. So I pick Link and he picks someone or other. So I beat him by staying away and chucking bombs at him since he didn't realize you can block them.

So you agree that it's the cheapest Smash Bros. win but not necessary the cheapest win ever?
