Paragon Los Angeles 2015 is shaping out to be one of the biggest Smash tournaments of 2015. With over 1,000 unique entrants and a plethora of top players from Melee, Smash 4, and Project M, the tournament will be an exciting experience for players and viewers alike. After recent majors such as EVO 2015 and Super Smash Con, storylines for Melee and Smash 4 are as fresh and exciting as ever. Meanwhile in Project M, Paragon LA 2015 will be the game's biggest tournament ever and the most stacked PM tournament for a long time.

Ever since the game's release, players have been trying to find out what the strongest hit possible is in Smash 4. Some have tried using counters, Villager's Pocket, and reflectors. After extensive research, Beefy Smash Doods have found what appears to be the most powerful hit without items or equipment! The video explains how the strongest hit works, and it also provides some insight into how counters, Villager's Pocket, and reflectors work.

In Smash, it's always important to be a technical master while knowing your option selects. That's why OneSmash in partnership with Tourney Locator are here to present Tech of the Week #40: Hit Pause OS! The Hit Pause Option Select is a very useful technique that requires utmost precision, but it pays off with great options for all types of scenarios.

Viewers may have noticed the techs are not presented in order. This is because all of the techs to be shared are a part of the One Smash Tech Tree. This makes each video feed of the others, showing how each tech works together to form a complete game. Some other videos in the series include Fast Fall Break, Snap Back and Slow Run. A full playlist is available here so be sure to check these out to get the full idea of the One Smash Tech Tree.

Pokemon64ism is excited to see players use the Hit Pause OS to optimize their gameplay. You can follow him on Twitter @pokemon64ism.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, dash dancing was one of the game's most useful techniques. It was an important part of the neutral game that allowed for spacing mindgames. However, it was changed in Brawl and random tripping hindered its usefulness. Dash dancing is back once again in Smash 4, and it can be combined with fox trotting to maximize its effectiveness. Join My Smash Corner as they teach Extended Dash Dancing/Dance Trotting!

[In Smash Bros., most characters go into a free-fall animation after using certain specials. However, some characters cannot naturally go into free-fall. But in Smash 4, everyone has a free-fall animation because of Pac-man's up-special! After falling through Pac-man's trampoline, all characters go into free-fall whether they can do it naturally or not. To see these "rare" free-falls in action, watch this video by Beefy Smash Doods!
