Not really tbh. I absolutely hated Brawl because they specifically designed that game to not be competitive. Nintendo doesn't want anything to do with competitive gaming so I can only imagine Smash 4 will be just as bad.



you guys should watch this video and try to get these techniques down.

I don't know dude. Maybe you mean tourney "competitive" but i play brawl pretty frequently and boy does it get competitive. Last I knew, Melee was made to be just a party game.

I know Brawl still has a big scene but when you get into high level Brawl it just becomes a sluggish campfest that isn't fun to play or watch. Most matches will go the full 8 minutes with just 3 stocks! That's ridiculous. I've seen plenty matches where someone will get a percent lead and just run away for 8 minutes.

Just think of it like this, Melee to Brawl was like Halo 2 to Halo 3. They took out the button glitches to make it "fair", but it also hurt the fast gameplay that made Melee great.

I know very well how that is. However, Melee was great even before these "button glitches" came into existence. I, unfortunately, can't say the same about H2.

L-canceling was in the First smash game. Or Z-canceling as it was called back then.

They're not really glitches, it's just working with the game mechanics in a completely different way. Very different from bxr's

I'd have to agree. I said that in quotations for a lack of a better term.

Yes, I do. Had I found out about this sooner, specifically when I lived in Tallahassee, we'd've been runnin' ~25 ping games! Bummer!

Either way, so long as this thread stays active, I'll see it. I'll most definitely keep you posted on when my availability becomes a reality for this -- I'm hoping within the next month, month and a half (at the latest). I'll go ahead and order the GCN controller to USB adapter this week to somewhat expedite the setup process. From there, it's a waiting game between moving into a new place and setting up internet.
