Oh man I agree with you there, that completely justifies the pokemon trainer for me.

The most hilarious smash bros win I think is still grabbing them with DK and then trotting off the screen to their (and likely your) doom. Of course it doesn't work if they figure out how to break free, but hilarious when you can manage it. Also doing the same thing in the sandbag minigame, not effective but good for a laugh or two.

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.
Cheapest. win. ever.
It's actually quite a lot of work to pull off against a good player (i.e. one who knows how to break free and that you enjoy this particular suicide). You need to get them to an edge, preferably with Kirby on the outside, then grab and throw... and if they're good at breaking free (and it's a moderate fall to whatever's under the stages*), Kirby can end up plummeting to his death alone, while the grabbee can recover and pick up some items while Kirby respawns...

*I'll admit that this is quite overkill on Jungle Japes from SSBM, as the water's directly underneath the stage

I've been playing on and off since the game game out (good lord, 7 years ago?) and recently I've picked it up with the intent to be pro-caliber. The reason being a tournament March 8 for Brawl. I hope I can get somewhere.

No, the best possible win is to be Mario and have your opponent, Jigglypuff, do the rolling move as a recovery, timing it carefully so she additionally will bounce off you, and you doing a frame-perfect cape for an instant kill. Beautiful.

Played some pirated Dairanto Sumashu Burazu Ekksu at the weekend and it was pretty great. I can't wait for the PAL release of Brawl... whenever that is.

Should be sometime in the fall. Yeah. Meanwhile, I only got 126 hours until I can play Brawl.
That's 7,560 minutes.
That's 453,600 seconds!

I may be a bit obsessed,

EDIT: Does anyone know where I could find a control diagram for the Wii-mote + Nunchuck control scheme for Brawl? I'm in a tournament Saturday and I need to know how the controls work.

People should just use the GC controller, it's loads better. I know this firsthand.

Yes, but the tournament I'm attending on the night before launch has the Wiimote + Nunchuck as a mandatory control scheme. It's set to default and you can't change it or use the GameCube controller.

Not as much as you may think. But crafty me, I found a small picture on the Dojo! site that shows the controller configuration menu, and the default control scheme for the Nunchuck mode.

Thanks for the update. I hadn't heard that the tourney would be chuck-mote manditory. I did notice that they are requiring that you use THEIR CONTROLLERS and that YOUR CONTROLLERS are banned.

Interesting.

As a side note, do you know if it will only be the baseline characters unlocked? Or will the secret chars be available? I guess I can Ike(ROY) it, but I'd prefer the finesse that is Darth Marth.

Hmm, I haven't played it yet...but in some of the Dojo pages, he does seem like a 'fixed' Roy. Prove me wrong Silent Bob, extra-heavy swordsman with damage INSIDE the blade, as opposed to Marth's tip. Check. Counter like Roy/Marth? Check. Both are elemental fire-focused? Check. Charged B move that hurts yourself? Check.

...Do I need to go on? If not a direct successor to his play style, a spiritual successor.

So, to make a long boring story short, I happened to see the trophy for the Brawl tournament one of my local Gamestops is handing out. The reason I saw it was the manager was showing it to some of his underlings trying to see if any of them could identify the subject of the trophy. He preceeded it with something like "Mario is easy.. Luigi or Yoshi, Donkey Kong.. even Pikachu I could see. Even Captain Falcon or something, but this.."

and pulls out a trophy that.... Well.... (Don't click the link if you don't want to know what it looks like)

You can play against random people. It's just not ranked, and you can't even see names.

What do you think the chances are of someone just showing up to a store on Sunday and getting a copy? I've gotten into the Wii game late so I never had to pre-order the game. Do you think it'll sell out as soon as stores open?
