It lagged when i was right next to friends too.

I tried maining kirby but it felt a bit different from Brawl's. I think his moves were nerfed a bit. As was Pit's, but for some reason, I think I'm controlling pit better then the other characters ive tried, so i might end up maining him.

I'm probably going to bounce around between a few characters. At the moment, Ness, Zero Suit Samus, and Bowser are all in the running.

most of my online experience has been trying to help teach a friend how to play at a higher skill level and trying not to get annoyed as fuck at a family friend who is obsessed with using fucking Sonic. I can't stand Sonic. He was only mildly irritating in Brawl, and I feel bad complaining since he's actually a useable character now, but my god he is fucking annoying as shit with his stupid fucking high priority chip damage moveset.

GRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH IT GETS ON MY FUCKING NERVES EVEN THOUGH I STILLL 3-0 HIM.

the best thing i did last night was two rounds with the friend that i'm teaching how to play at a higher skill level. i played game and watch and literally only used oil panic against him playing ZSS and 3-0'd him. then the next round i only used rest and 3-1'd him. he's a newbie so he didn't know how rest worked.

he loves shooting missiles as samus and grabbing, so i got practice with timing for reflections and figuring out her grab range.

ur welcome bud
Yes if you guys don't know it yet one of Villager's custom moves is a Timber tree that does less damage/knockback all around but the tree sprout makes anybody who walks over it trip and the actual tree itself, while disappearing in fewer hits, deals as much damage to whoever hits it as it received

I've gotten used to Robin now, and she's a really cool fighter. Magic and swords make for a useful combination! I'm also a huge fan of Mii fighter, love the custom options available and being able to have pretty much anyone in, being a mii and all. Berserker Gutts is my favourite sword mii. Pity they're not online compatible, though.

The ability to bet on online matches is also pretty cool, kinda like salty bet for smash bros. I'll probably only try an online match now and again though, due to annoying lag.

Also also 3DS themes are out, how great is this? No more boring white home screen! I'll wait till new game themes are out before thinking about buying any though, hopefully some FE:A themes become available soon. Maybe bravely default.

Oh right, so we've got a dilemma on our hands (at least for those of us in the US): Smash Wii U comes out the same day as ORAS. I don't know who made that decision, but they were obviously not thinking clearly.

Okay so hi guys :O

have to say firstly I don't have smash. I went into my local GameStop on Friday only to find they were out of stock, but (foolishly) paid for it anyway with a gift card I had. They only came back into stock today and I said I wouldn't get it on a weekday because I have stuff I should be doing. Not that that matters any more, because I a few hours ago I took out my 3DS battery! I noted the back of my 3DS had warped despite the screws being fully tightened, and when I opened it up the battery had swelled to twice it's normal thickness, which is super dangerous. I ordered a replacement on Amazon but it won't be here until next week. So. Yeah. Not really too bummed I guess, probably because I'm not partaking in any chat?

Also I'm trying to keep my postcount low(er), which is hard to do when OJ rarely comments. I eclipsed his post count last month :O

Finally, YES Oras takes priority! BTW. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the Demo. Serebii mentioned UK/Ireland, but GAME no longer exist here, and all the things they metioned bar one are UK specific (Smyths Toys are actually an Irish company, but they've never done anything like this before, have nothing on it on their website, and they have a UK branch anyway so I don't know if I can rely on it. I've signed up to two of their email subsciptions in any case). I really want the demo though, moreso than the smash one. So can I make an informal request that should the Smash style thing happen where people get multiples and I can't get any that I be considered on the receivers shortlist for anybody with spares :O I hate to ask! It's just.
ORAS DEMO. Cannot live knowing I'm missing it.



nothing important below only slightly emotional catharsis and D_What Character Development And World Building
Spoiler:

fffffffffff
I hate facebook!!!

so I checked in recently to FB as you do and I was greeted by the "do you know this person" malarky which I hate because I've only added about 20 people and have denied about 20 other people. YES I know you and I respect you and I think you might actually be pretty cool but if I know we'll never ever talk I'm not gonna add you just to inflate my sense of self worth??? Anyway. So I see a face and name I haven't seen or thought about in years, probably 5 or so. 5 years ago I was in a kinda dark place! I was super shy and withdrawn and desperately lonely, but I had a group of people to hang out with at lunch times who I suppose in a certain light might have been considered friends (but it occurs to me I never referred to them as such, I think I didn't know how to tell when someone was actually considered a friend + srs abandonment issues. They were always "buddies" or "good acquaintances" or some schtick. And in hindsight, this was a smart move). Anyway the whole thing was super toxic. You had a couple of really narcissistic types, a boat load of enablers, huge egos/mutual gossip/allegiances/bullshit which *airquote* fortunately I never had to experience because I was never considered important enough to actually be included in anything. Which hurt but I was in fairly serious denial about the whole thing. Which didn't help with the self-esteem.

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't one of these socially awkward types which every school gets. I was just generally shy (would talk if spoken to and continue conversation, desperately afraid of starting one) and hadn't had a single reliable friend since the age of 8 because of moving around and stuff.

So, after this going on for 3-4 years, (5-6 years ago) some stuff happened and I snapped and went the real life equivalent of grimdark. I found excuses to be super aggressive to the lot of them and encouraged spats between them from a distance... bar one guy who at the time would have thought of me as one of his closer friends (again, in hindsight, completely unreciprocated; I was used as a doormat) - he got special treatment. I went cold shoulder. Like, ice cold. Sub zero. -(maxInt) Kelvin. For an entire year my primary hobby was finding new ways to be super passively cold to him and completely ignoring his existence. It was... actually really great and I don't regret any of it??? It was totes empowering and even if I was properly depressed for most of it I came out of it a much more confident, well rounded person. But seriously, some of the shit I pulled should be put into annals. I would poach people from conversations he was in in order to cut him out of them, constantly, and obviously (to him). We were in most of the same classes; I would take every opportunity to be the person who handed out notes just so I could not give him one; first week into it I deliberately set my stuff on a specific two-person art desk and made indications that this is where the two of us would sit; as soon as his stuff was out I moved all my stuff to the table behind and struck up a ferocious conversation with the guy there - those were our seats for two years. In that same art class we rotated life drawing models; I was the best at life drawing by far and when his turn came around I drew all of his clothes with no head on them in exquisite detail. This is just scratching the surface. By the end of it he was properly scared of me. Ridonkulous.

ANYWAY thats all backstory. Now I'm fine, though my university isn't too far from the school I went to so rarely I do run across some of the people who were in that unfortunate group. In first year a few of them would wave and say hi to me, or approach me and call my name to be friendly; I think in those cases my response was "Oh." And I'd continue doing what I was doing. Nowadays they just get ignored. And that's fine! It's not so much spite anymore as it is an absolute commitment to never ever opening that can of worms again.

Back to FB. So the picture I see is of one of the girls who was in the center group, if I can consider myself as part of a center of 5 people; like the rest of them she got scorched-earth'd regardless of any previous commitments or feelings and I haven't really thought of her since. I made friends with her  younger sister for a while, though. But if I'm honest (and this is like, the opposite of catharsis) she was the least offensive of the bunch. She was witty and incredibly intelligent and russian with a cute accent and she was also good looking and we had good discussions on a lot of stuff, pre-fallout. But it was democratic hatred-by-association I guess. Kinda like some of the people The Bride in Kill Bill went after maybe? Anyway, I literally completely forgot she had existed up until I saw this photo, and unthinkingly I clicked the image and it brought me to her mostly empty profile, bar some simple photos.

I hate facebook.

SHE'S STILL AS ABSOLUTELY FUCKING BEAUTIFUL AS SHE EVER WAS AND I HATE MYSELF FOR ONLY BEING ABLE TO DESCRIBE HER IN TERMS BEST USED BY A PUPPY AAAARGHWHYDOIALWAYSFALLFORSMARTBLONDEGIRLSITSSOTYPECASTFFFFFFFFFF

Ugh. So the whole thing is basically anti-catharsis. I refuse to doubt myself. They were all, whether actively or passively, individually or as part of a group, abusive people and I gained so much from what I did, and none of it was entirely undeserved (and depending on how you look at it, kinda tame). But this is the kind of thing that makes me question it. And if I question it, the building blocks of my personality shake a little. And I'm angry at myself not for feeling either way but for questioning this at all... And I STILL can't describe her in any way without segueing into some absurd romance poetry parody. For Fuck's Sake.

I'd post more if there was something for me to post about.

I guess I could tell you about the DnD session I am preparing over on the Nightnight Crew forum?

I am currently looking for the best way to give my Pirates of the Caribbean Davy Jones reference permanent Waterbreathing.

Knocked out All-Star with Jigglypuff. Now the only obnoxious ones left are Palutena, Marth, and Meta Knight. I think.

Should I try to get a The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for my 3DS?

Alright, it's been a while since I last played a Zelda game but I had heard that it is a good game so I thought about it and since you seem to like it, I'll try to get it.

Next question: I am preparing NPCs for a 3.5 DnD game, do any of you want a cameo or something?

So apparently, while no pictures have been posted yet, Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill are about to be revealed in CoroCoco. It's technically unconfirmed but supposedly the source is reliable.
For some reason, people are saying that they're going to be Electric/Flying and Dragon/Poison, but those types make absolutely no sense whatsoever and I don't think they were mentioned by the aforementioned reliable source, so I'm not gonna believe them too readily. That said the megas themselves are still most likely happening!

Bullshit! People ALWAYS add types. Occam's razor, people. I always default to the default type and statistically I'm more right than those who default to Dragon/Fairy/Anything else.

Also I'm accurate anyway. Mega two keep their normal typing, check Serebii. AND THEY LOOK AWESOME! Very Happy
Also, news about MegaLati@s and OTHER VERSION LEGENDARIES IN THE GAME WOW CHECK OUT HOW IT'S HANDLED CRAZY STUFF DAWGS SERIOUSLY CHRIST THAT'S CRAZY

Hey, those two actually look pretty good, who'd have thought?

Not sure about the abilities though. No Guard is best with attacks with a miss chance. I suppose Pidgeot could get some use out of Hurricane or maybe Steel Wing? But Fly will be even more useless to it and stuff like Stone Edge will probably be MPidgeots downfall. So while it looks cool, I am unsure about its usability.

Adaptility could be nice, it is surely more useful then Swarm and Sniper, though I am unsure if Beedrill will be strong enough to matter, even with 100 points added. That's only 495, not a lot, especially compared to other Megas. Maybe if they put the points in the right stats it could work but I am unsure.

Mega Beedril looks pretty good, although now I want Butterfree to get one for symmetry. Mega Pidgeot looks kind of bland, but then again it is Pidgeot, so what do you expect? Definitely liking that bit about the legendaries' availabilites. I'm wondering how they'll be divvied up between versions, and whether the Eon Ticket will actually make it stateside, much less to the rest of the world (although the way things are going with ORAS currently, the US might be the only major place to miss out).
