This Week's Smash In Review

Inspired by the recent slew of Smash Brawl news, I've had a sudden resurgence of Smash Melee play. I wish Melee had some kind of replay feature; I've been dominating Jason and Justin all week. The three of us (well, two and a ginger snap) have been playing every day this week and rounded out tonight's evening with a solid two hour session of beat downs.

Nothing but strict 1v1, no/low items, tournament stages, of course.

I started to get some practice in across the board, but after a couple hours I decided I wanted to focus on Mewtwo and Bowser. Oh yes, I've finally decided that Bowser is playable. Mewtwo is money in 1v1 and always has been, but Bowser takes a lot of focus and practice to win matches.
Some of my highlights from this week...
- 2 kills with Bowser's flame breath
- a 6-hit combo in a Peach vs DK match
- a Meteor Smash kill in a Mewtwo vs Luigi
- a perfect game using Jiggly's "wall of pain" against Jason
- Donkey Punching a green shell all the way across the stage and connecting
- Using Mewtwo's stun followed by a baseball bat =)

I'm thrilled with all the new characters announced for Smash Brawl so far, however I'm at a loss why there are now three characters from the Kirby universe. I'm all for a large hammer wielding character type, but King Dedede? Really?

Orange Box Rap

Pick up your crowbar and come with me
On a journey to White Forest from City 17
Runnin' with Alyx, tell me the way to go
What's that figure movin' through the shadow
I hope nothin' happens cuz she knows best
Oh shit she just got stabbed through the chest

Vortigaunts will help bring her back to life
Find some glowy bug goo in this time of strife
Fight off the antlions with Jayne Cobb
G-Man thinks I'm the man for the job
Time to show these Hunters who's the man
Don't mess with rocket science, I'm Gordon Freeman

Soldiers on the attack
Heavy's sprayin lead
Sniper bullet in your head
Team. Fortress. Twoooooo

Moved to Google's Blogger service

I've moved the site over to Google's Blogger service. As I kept adding to my site's code more and more, I realized I was just adding features that bring it closer to one of these full-fledged blogging services. Not much point spending my time developing what already exists. The nice thing about the switch is that comments are now enabled and you can add comments using your Google account. Say hi!
