Day 269: Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Initial Thoughts

It's not exactly a secret that I, and most people in the world, absolutely adore the Smash Bros series. Naturally, everyone was excited when Smash Ultimate was announced. I mean, come on: a Smash Bros game featuring seventy-four characters + six DLC characters (one of which is mother fucking Joker from Persona 5!!), a hundred or so… Continue reading Day 269: Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Initial Thoughts

Day 268: Countdown to Ultimate Finale: Project M

Bet ya didn't see that one coming. Since I haven't had a chance to play Ultimate enough to give it a clear rating (but that should change by tomorrow, don't you worry), I figured I'd take another day to talk about one of the most well known Smash Bros games out there.

Day 265: Countdown to Ultimate: Brawl

And now, after the most popular game in the series, comes the one that most people really don't like: Brawl. So, after revisiting it for this post, is all the hate it's garnered well placed?

Day 264: Countdown to Ultimate: Melee

This is it. The big one. If you're talking about Super Smash Bros., then there's no avoiding the topic of Melee. The perfect entry that people still play to this very day, both casually and at tournaments. Well, at least everyone claims it's perfect. Don't misunderstand: I love Melee. It's a fantastic game, and I can definitely… Continue reading Day 264: Countdown to Ultimate: Melee
