Nico 'SuperQue' Smith

Reporter

Nico comes from a background deep in Smash, having competed back in the early 2000s. Starting in Melee, he progressed up to the current title Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

He is also an OEF (Operation Enduring Freedom) veteran, who saw live action in his tour of duty. He uses the skills and knowledge obtained from the Army at his job with EventHubs.

A senior multimedia journalism major and creative media production minor at Arkansas State University, Nico has a current GPA of 3.1.

Aside from the FGC and esports he covers traditional sports for other publications like SB Nation and Rivals. Esports remains his love and passion.

He has consistently used Luigi since Melee. His undying loyalty to him remains both in traditional Super Mario Bros. games and the Smash Bros. Series. He also has connections with some of the top personalities and players in the competitive Smash scene such as EE, RodtheDutch, PB&J, Ryuga, and more.

Always seeking to know what’s going on in the current meta, and who the next great player is, Smash isn’t just a passion for him - it’s life. He plays casually and still competes at some of the bigger tournaments.

The long-time Smash veteran is also a casual player across other titles in the FGC such as Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and the Marvel vs. Capcom series. His love for gaming comes from a childhood in which he used gaming and writing to escape from the daily grind.
