Omni created a video called "Are You Addicted To Smash". These signs include "hearing buttons over nothing going on", "stopping from playing other games", and "playing every game like Smash".

As per Omni's usual, his outgoing personality is showcased, but this one follows a more "Vlog" format rather than having him fit in more jokes as he uses examples from his own stories with people to correlate to their possible Smash Bros. addiction.
Are you addicted to Smash? In Omni's newest video, he might have the answers for that..

Dan Fornace, the lead behind Rivals of Aether himself

A few years ago, a young ambitious mind by the name of Dan Fornace decided to create a student game while he was in college. That game, Super Smash Land, ended up changing from a hobby to a career. Unlike many other Smash Success stories, Dan’s life doesn’t follow the same suit of one day waking up and seeing the game blow up.

Dan Fornace is currently residing in Seattle, WA, and he works on the game full time. As an independent developer for the past few years, he’s been doing what he loves, but there’s always a lot on his plate.

In 2006, the fan community for Super Smash Bros. wasn’t that widely known, but one talent always stuck with the community, whether it was underground or popular. That talent was ArtsyOmni, known for starting a series called Smashified, where he and a group of other artists create characters to demonstrate how they would look like in a Smash game. When he’s not at his day job, he’s often found working at his computer desk on art. Sometimes he’ll make his way out to a convention.

Smashboards is here with a new series - Interviews. From this point on, we’ll be releasing more and more video content alongside our standard spread of written ones.

Smashboards’ editor-in-chief, Justin “Popi” Banusing, recently had the chance to talk to Rich "Keitaro" King of Counter Logic Gaming over Skype for the first episode of the series. Talking about organizing tournaments, production values and commentator selection at events, Keitaro shared his thoughts about where Smash is now and where it might and should head into the future.

For the uninitiated, Keitaro currently serves as CLG’s video production specialist. Before this, he was already an established member of the community, known for hosting the long-running New Jersey-based KTAR series. He is also the second half of Rush Hour Smash, a YouTube channel dedicated to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U content creation.

Welcome to SmashBoards Writer's Interviews! This is a series that will appear at least twice every month covering a writer (or someone important to making the front page the way it is). These are more casual interviewers, but edepending on the interviewer, they can be asked further questions by the users!

This week, after quite a long wait, we have SmashBoards writer DtJ Composer! Well, more-so editor. Taking the hard working role of editors before him, he's a one man team that skims over articles to get them to the quality they need to be. It's a lot on his back, but he's definitely been a help from the shadows on board. With jazz hands and a jazz band, welcome DtJ Composer!

DtJ Composer in his usual... habitat? Even I've got nothing. Look, straw hats!

Thirdkoopa: Tell us a little bit about yourself!

DtJ Composer: Well let's get this started,

For those who missed the previous interviews, be sure to check out PopiPenguin, SmashCapps, and Push_Dustin.

This week we have SmashBoards writer Pidgezero! She's been around in the community for quite some time, but the twist is her love of the smaller Smash Bros. games and their scene, along with the willingness to help players in the scene, and the endearingly positive (and quirky, to say the least) personality she has. Without further delay, give your hands up for Pidgezero!


Pidgezero likes Sonic, but Sonic is definitely eyeing that emote more. What a strange date.
