Item on for most of the tournament is a bit disappointing, but understandable.

Man, Zero Suit Samus is looking great. She look like she got a Yosuke feel, great mobility and cover distance good. Hype to use her again along with my other mains.

Ermapume said on June 10, 2014 at 6:25 p.m.

Seeing a high-level one-on-one gets me even more hype for this game. I Gotta say, Nintendo blew my expectations out of the water for this year's E3.

Goldsaint said on June 10, 2014 at 6:26 p.m.

hungrybox vs reggie confirmed

That was way too hype. I think I had a heart attack cause I saw Jesus and Tupac playing Smash.

I'm just happy Megaman landed the Final Smash.

#23
mechmaster90 said on June 10, 2014 at 6:36 p.m.

Zero suit Samus won, that's mah girl :)
The finals were literally a game of throws though...
I was also hopping for someone to pick regular Samus, oh well. Can't wait to play that game.

#24
COREY_1993 said on June 10, 2014 at 6:43 p.m.

really good. especially as a guy that doesnt play nintendo games. i had a lot of fun watching and felt the hype. mac was brilliant and i wish i got to see more of him. the first match was the best.

and reggies trash talk at the end was a hilarious way to end. nintendo need to do this every year. this is easily the highlight of the day.

might get a wiiu eventually since this and bayonetta are on it but not before bayonetta and this is out.

#25
Sanox said on June 10, 2014 at 6:51 p.m.

well cannot say much about the game aside from that the speed is there

no character reveal at the end was a huge missed opportunity especially if they are gonna reveal one at the round table now

200k+ watching on stream + the immediate reaction of the thousands at the invitational vs like what 25 journalists

So good! I was almost in tears.

No hitstun though, Brawl 2.0 confirmed, ugh

#28
EagleBirdMan said on June 10, 2014 at 7:10 p.m.

That Zero suit lamed out the match really. If I was that Kirby I'd be mildly annoyed.

chipndip said on June 10, 2014 at 7:52 p.m.

You didn't see the combos?

#30
Shadowrock said on June 10, 2014 at 8:08 p.m.

Not hype Brawl 2.0... soo sad to see smash go downhill.

#31

Enjoyed this

#32
GiganV3 said on June 10, 2014 at 11:36 p.m.

It ain't really Brawl 2.0, there is dash dancing, no tripping and slight hitstun, not as much as in melee but there is Hitstun, the Fox player and Little Mac showed some examples of it connecting up to 5 different attacks at some points. And these are noobs at the game mind you.

#33
Zenman said on June 11, 2014 at 12:25 a.m.

Just as I thought, having items on makes it better.

#34
sduggie2t said on June 11, 2014 at 1:23 a.m.

Tournament starts around 8 hours into that video.

#35
CrazyC0mb0 said on June 11, 2014 at 1:36 a.m.

So since there's less hit stun, I take it you need to chain together much tighter combos, right? Spacing will also be very important so you can't just throw someone straight up and expect enough time to hit confirm into a combo.

#36
xShonuffx said on June 11, 2014 at 3:24 a.m.

Don't know if sarcasm or....im just going to answer this.

Items can make it fun casually always if your just shooting the s**t. but this was a tournament, the items and stage hazards dictated the match too much. It only got more interesting near the finals or when items were on slow. The announcers were able to focus on the players and characters more.

But as SOON as the items started dropping it was too chaotic. I don't think the pro Smash players had a chance to shine thanks to the items and 4 player battle royal. Once things slowed up they started to bring their A game.

Just too bad Zero Suit Samus was cheap as hell though. Sakurai is going to nerf her hard now lol.

acefondu said on June 11, 2014 at 7:06 a.m.

I prefer playing and watching this game with items on personally. I feel like items can fill a balance holes where minor tweaking of characters generally still leaves gaps. Meta Knight OP in Brawl? Yep. Turn items on though and suddenly things can swing in the favor of any character in the cast thus giving everyone a chance, isn't that what balance is in the end? Sure, I'd be in favor of banning certain 1 hit kill items, absolutely, but in general they are fun and only add to the enjoyment of the game.

Filthy casuals.

acefondu said on June 11, 2014 at 9:26 a.m.

I play Street Fighter hardcore ever since SF2 Turbo. But I like games like Smash to have fun. Not every game has to be ridiculously competitive. Either way I still find a good argument can be had with having items on, and still maintaining competitive play.

KakkoiBurubely said on June 11, 2014 at 9:52 a.m.

Puta que se ve flaco el CT|Zero ahí, hahaha.

#41
GiganV3 said on June 11, 2014 at 12:26 p.m.

Though Metaknight has enough priority in most of his attacks to stop any item thrown his way with little skill, I don't play him and I don't need to shield to repel even hammer attacks, not to mention he's very fast so he can repel and then pick up the items for himself, items add a random factor but I don't think they really help balance.

#42
acefondu said on June 11, 2014 at 12:35 p.m.

Any character can air grab a thrown item. But giving Bowser say a laser sword makes him more competitive in a match versus Metaknight where not letting him get one doesn't help that balance at all.

#43
GiganV3 said on June 11, 2014 at 12:41 p.m.

I'm not talking about grabbing the item, but attacking an item thrown your way, Metaknight has very high priority in his attacks, it cancels them out, most characters don't have such priority except for Snake, so he doesn't need to worry about the opponent having an item.

About Bowser, a home run bat would be better as that one has more priority than the sword.

#44
acefondu said on June 11, 2014 at 1:09 p.m.

I know what you're saying, but I'm saying all characters have an option against a thrown item which is the air grab. Metaknight has one more option than the rest, oh well don't toss your item willy nilly at him then, actually use it instead. I'm just saying if all else was purely equal, which it isn't, then the items would throw off the balance. But since nothing about Brawl or Melee is balanced all that well, adding in items would only help I feel, plus make it more interesting. Not to mention players would develop strategies around the items just like Injustice players work with the level interactables.

Yeah, such a shame. =/
