So it's me again. Here to do the same thing I do nearly every time this year.

http://kamicon.net/

Kami-con is coming up, February 15 - 17. Here's the shocker. IT'S NOT IN TUSCALOOSA THIS YEAR! It's all moved to the BJCC on account of logistics. Plus expansion. Logistical expansion. And they'll have Smash!

Yes, brawl only. It's an anime convention. Deal with it.

You should still go, if not for the video games, then for the animu and general good times. I might be there, I might now. Plane tickets are expensive.
Yeah, that's the same weekend as AUSOM 7, so I'll be going to AUSOM.

Eh, I was going to Kami con with my sister regardless. I'm not entering brawl, unless nobody even half-decent shows up, cause then i want money.

I wonder who I'm going to main....

And for some reason I feel like all the new characters are going to be busted as anything in the future. It's taken years of meta development to get the melee characters where they are, but brawl characters like sonic are being introduced with immediate skill results equal to that of the fully developed melee characters.

"Immediate skill results" isn't really the way I'd describe some of the success. The PMBR just needs to clean up some messes. The game is in beta, so there's still time to balance things out, and I'm still pushing for the high-tier Melee characters to get changed (not necessarily nerfed). I'm confident that it'll balance itself out well.

It's also worth noting that a lot of the new stuff has been taken from other games. I maintain that Wario plays much like Brawl Wario, which is why a lot of it carries over for me.

Well, Brawl Lucario is incredibly boring and dumb for other players to fight against because he has mobility and safety on his side to the extreme (you can't react to his roll, and most characters can't catch it even if you hard read it). The options out of charging Aura Sphere are ridiculously powerful, and because he's so difficult to catch, it makes his "get powered up for getting beat up" mechanic feel obnoxious at times.

PM Lucario rewards you for dealing damage (via Super meter) rather than for taking damage, and he combos fluidly. A lot of his stuff is guaranteed to work once it's started, which is unlike most Smash characters, where you have to read DI regularly and stuff.

brawl lucario is campy and boring. pm lucario is offensive and combos and tricky and is inspired by 2d fighters which I love anyway.

and honestly I think the high tier melee characters are still among the best in PM. Falco, Falcon, Sheik Marth are all really beast. I have yet to see a Peach player, but she seems just as good as well. not sure about Fox. he's not getting a lot of love right now.

Way to show superb mastery over this game. VERY impressive. Reminds me that we need to get on games sometime.

That said, it's absolutely crazy that it's gained such a following in such a short amount of time.

No, but, maybe I should make one. The 2.5 notes explain a lot of the useful stuff he got that made him a real character, though.
