#488

I demand henceforth to be referred to as “Croco Rococo”


#489

User title material?


#490

I wouldn’t underestimate how much latency + that weird held input buffer contribute to you feeling this way

I played ultimate against coworkers like a month ago and I was just like, absolutely wrecking people and all of my combos were going correctly and it was just such a different experience from online that I haven’t played online since

(that said I haven’t really…played at all…since)


#491

You can, but if you manage to grab someone in the middle of the cloud and get a couple pummels in, that’s like 0-to-70-or-whatever in an instant. And then you still have a throw left


#492

What if Fusion Samus

weight/speed ratio somewhere between Samus and Zero Suit, with wall cling like Greninja, Ice missiles… something else???

Would be a good excuse to overhaul Samus’s kit to be less NES-Metroid-centric. Maybe get Shinespark in there somewhere. Power bombs?

Replace charge shot with essentially Fox blaster


#493

Charging up to get a wave beam that passes through everything including scenery would be pretty neat.


#494

I always feel like their original implementation of samus was half hearted and it should have been something more like this


#495

« Oeil au beurre noir » means « black eye » so « oeuf au beurre noir » is some surprisingly high quality pun

Meanwhile « Qui Sheikah eteins la lumiere » is an absolutely awful pun ( I like it ) and « Primate with a tie » is a weird reference to a French pop song from the late 90’s


#496

oh my god I wish I could potion this twice this is PERFECT


#497

But he said leave me alone, I’m a salary man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said leave me alone, I’m a salary man
But if you push me too far I just might

Plant’s downB should ledge tether


#499

I’ve been playing this with my buddy weekly and he’s been beating me recently, so I thought I’d practice online a bit. I’m now in Elite Smash with Incineroar and Young Link. Most of the matchups feel doable with Young Link, but man does Incineroar have some bad ones. The buff to his recovery has helped, but he’s combo food to some characters.

It still mostly feels doable though. A few good reads/reactions, and you can make crazy comebacks. I killed a poor Piranha Plant at 48% last night with an Incineroar back throw. The revenge buff made it do over 60 damage. Felt dirty after that one.


#500

My Young Link is not good enough to hang in Elite Smash.

Show me your moves?

#501

Sent a request! I just barely made it into Elite; only picked up Young Link last week, and had to play a lot of him to get Elite last weekend. There’s so many characters that I just get destroyed sometimes when I don’t know the matchup. And even within a matchup, sometimes they choose weird options and I don’t get a read on them in the course of a 3 stock match.

If I’m on it’s usually in the evening, EST. Let me know if your schedule/time zone ever overlaps with that; we probably have to coordinate through here since the Switch literally gives you no way to communicate.


#502

I’m on the opposite coast, but if you can play at around 9pm your time we can probably make that work.

I also do nothing most weekends.


#503

I’m enjoying maining ness a lot and I feel like I’m getting pretty decent with him.

I’ll try to remember to post my friend code here when I get home.

Really been enjoying watching tournament level play of this game. I feel like they really knocked it out of the park. It’s got a few sort of janky things about it but it’s easily the best smash game since melee imo. I actually prefer many things about it to melee too.


#504

It’s way more approachable than Melee and it doesn’t hurt my hands nearly as much. Tournaments are really fun because there’s a ton of variety, in contrast to Melee’s relatively stagnant cast. It’s a cool game!


#505

been playing a lot at a friends place, i really enjoy snake and shulk. snake is the projectile character melee should have had and his whole kit works really well together, and i enjoy the hell out of his dash attack. you can do real sneaky stuff with grenades and sticky -> mortar -> missile. shulk is a new one, i didn’t expect to enjoy sword characters ever, but i love a character with a good wheelkick (backslash), i love when up-b is an actual damage dealer, and the different arts make it clear there’s a lot to learn to use him effectively which i enjoy.
i thought i would main wolf but i actually find him kind of clunky in my hands. i guess i expected harder-hitting fox mostly, and he’s a different sort of beast, slower.

fun game. now if they could buff some of the more interesting members of the peanut gallery


#506

I have been trying to get back into Snake, but I am constantly thrown off by the change to his down smash, which used to plant a mine. I’d say it’s the most I’ve ever been thrown off by a change to a character’s kit, except I’m still startled when Mario pulls out F.L.U.D.D. rather than doing a spinning attack.
