"so what hair cut do you want today sir?"
"hmm..give me the dreamcast graphics"
The fastest way to feel disappointed is to expect it. The fastest way to disappoint is to expect you will.
I still do not know how will I use Tumblr. All I know is I find some parts of it depressing, some parts of it confusing, and then throw in Grace selfies just to diffuse my anger/confusion because that’s almost all she does.
This is so fucking stupid, you can’t defend this. Nintnedo what is this shit? what the fucking fuck it’s a fucking fighting game
If you want to fight 1v1 then play for glory, that’s the whole reason it’s there
If theres a player, in your game, where you’re suppose to fight each other, you should expect a fight. If theres one guy whos clearly lacking, and you kick his ass, that should be it. “Damn, got my ass handed to me” is what you should think. Not “wow hes bullying me. Why didn’t he attack my other team mate? This isn’t fair.” Thats some weak ass shit and you shouldnt even be playing.
Except when veterans target weaker players it makes their stats look better and the others’ stats look worse. It’s just a measure to even out the playing field.
smash was designed to be a game for all ages and all experience levels and if you single out the worst player in a 4-person match and relentlessly wail on them then they’re Not Going To Have Fun and you’re being an asshole. no six-year-old with a 3ds and smash is going to want three 20-something melee veterans to gang up on them in for fun mode
Yeah. But if someone has the most stocks you are going to focus them outright. And if someone is clearly weaker it’s easier to remove them from the fight that way so that it’s less of a drawn out game. Veteran players who target weaker players are playing the game, however flawed it may seem. Let’s use Poke’mon for example. I’m the grass gym leader and some asshole with a Charizard walks in and wipes me and everyone else no sweat. I then call the Elite Four in to have his badge taken away and ban him from even taking the challenge because he was focusing on a tactic that works and it’s unfair. So the people who get wiped can keep using their weak grass types and never have to change their tactics.
In any fighting game you have to evolve how you play. I learned that young when I was playing old Mortal Kombat and Nintendo Fighters. Like, Melee rewarded you with trying new things because there were so many things to do. And this is punishing the driving force behind getting good at fighting games, failure. I am not good at SF4, but when I get my ass kicked in it makes me want to learn how to get better. Also Gief is amazing and I love his stupid playstyle. Back to my point though. Losing is important. If you don’t want to lose against strangers then play with friends. Don’t punish people for teaching others how to play the game the hard way. Because that’s the best way to learn.
Yeah except online play is timed so there’s no stock so that part of your argument is completely bogus. Secondly, if you want to win so bad in a for fun game that you need to target the worst player 1) you’re probably not that good in the first place 2) there’s a mode for you it’s called for glory.
Like honestly how is whomping some ten year old kid relentlessly so you can win teaching them anything? Take your macho survival of the fittest bullshit to for glory mode and stop picking on children.
I didn’t know the mode was timed, but still. It’s the best way to learn how to play the game. And I am not talking about relentlessly thrashing a 10 year old. I am talking about taking down the weakest person there. You are assuming that everyone who isn’t good is a young child. If I were to play against a child I would, of course, go easy on them. However, when you go into an online game against other people and don’t have the skill to keep up it is clear that you are not ready for that. I’ll go back to SF4 for this again. I suck at the game, but can handle online now because I played against Bots and my friends as well as watched videos online about how to play gief and Abel. It’s about practicing until you are good. Dark Souls is a good example of this. If you lose, nothing happened except forward progress. You saw why you lost, how it happened, and how to avoid losing in that way again. But if you die in the same spot over and over without learning anything then you will never get anywhere.
Smash brothers isn’t dark souls
Children can git gud.
Hell, look at the NES era. I think it’s an insult to children to think that the same age group that beat Ninja Gaiden 2 deserves to be pampered and babied now.
Human players are more cruel and unforgiving than any stage of ninja gaiden. Online can be harsh without some dude singling you out and shitting on you.
I still don’t get the argument.
It’s a game. You play the game by targeting people. That’s how it’s played. Otherwise you’re just drifting around a map attacking at random. That’s not what smash brothers is. I keep seeing it said that “for glory” is where people should go if they want that but I honestly don’t see why people that want to play a stage other than final destination online should be kicked from rooms for playing the damn game right.
It’s not a case of FGC people targeting five-year-olds, it’s people who aren’t as good getting hit first. Have you ever played any board game ever? Have you played any competitive game before?
You can say smash bros. isn’t competitive until the sun comes up, it’s inherently a competition. That’s why there are points. That’s what points mean. That’s why at the end of a match there are rankings based on who won and who did not and in what order from best to worst they finished.
If you want to force an agenda of non-competitiveness you are fundamentally misunderstanding what a game is. It’s DEMEANING to suggest that people should have to go easy on other people. It’s demeaning to those very people. You’re sending the message that they’re too shitty to be worthy of playing in the game without a handicap imposed on everyone else.
You’re not some shining knight defending children, you’re supporting a decision that took a fun game and made it measurably worse for no good reason. Hell, even if you want to make the argument that beating up on one person sucks, they could just institute a point reduction, make someone worth less points after so many consecutive deaths. It’d still be shitty of them but you’re arguing that people who play the game with the idea of being the slightest bit competitive deserve to be removed from the game unless they play on the most simple and bland stage in the game with the most simple and bland rules. That argument is absurd.
I agree. Any game that involves more than one character in a competition, no matter what genre and mode they play on, requires competition, which requires strategy, which can’t be improved unless you assess all flaws in the strategy, which makes it all the more sweeter when it works.
At first you don’t succeed, try try again. Or in other words: fail faster.

“You might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physically or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”
