Maximillian, fighting game hype man and all around awesome dood (his spelling, not mine) is creating an Assist Me! series of videos highlighting the new Smash 4 games. For those who are unaware, Maximillian's Assist Me series of videos first came into being as a live-action, humor-infused tutorial for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. In these videos, Max and Doctor Doom of Marvel fame go on several hilarious and ridiculous adventures while meeting other fighting game characters along the way. All the while, viewers are taught the basics of these characters and the game system itself, giving players who are new to fighting games a foundation to work from.

Assist Me! is coming to Smash!
Maximillian is an excellent force in the FGC and has always been friendly towards the Smash Bros. scene. His YouTube channel has tons of videos on other games as well, including some recent stuff on Smash 4 like this 8 Player Smash highlight video. Give his stuff a look if you're into fighting games, hype, and people having fun playing games.

The Derrit is excited to see Assist Me! Smash. He loved watching the MvC version, and has faith it will be hilarious. Follow him on Twitter at @TheDerrit.

Uh, Max isn't exactly an expert on smash brothers compared to the rest of the fighting games he's played. I do wonder how this will turn out.

I don't mean this in an offensive way, but how are you always able to comment on these things within minutes of posting? It blows my mind.
Let's just say I'm a fast guy, but it also depends on what I'm posting from and if I really do care for the post in question.

Though, really, I don't always get first comment on these things.

Cute to know I impress someone with this :seuss:

Guess I wasn't the only one who thought Smash could use more Finger Lasers. :colorful:

This is exciting! I kinda wish he'd do it for Melee just because he tends to go really deep in to technicality and there's more to explore there that fits his style, but this'll be very good for new players in any of the games :)

He has others helping him out.

And it isn't an exhaustive list of every do and don't it's a basic almost intro level tutorial to the game. It will likely go over the diferences between tilts and smashes, simple concepts like spacing and baiting, and simple character independant techs like b reversals, turn around B, pivot tilts.

But I wouldn't care if I was play at M2Ks level right now. I'd bw watching these regardless. My hope is that the community doesn't get all high and mighty and try to tell him how to make these videos, though Max doesn't seem to be the type to let something like that phase him even if it did happen.

Honestly, I never heard of this until now, but that Link with the beard/eyepatch instantly made me a fan (and based off the article, the vids sounds hilarious/informative, which is also nice). Now... time to catch up on EVERYTHING. I'm especially interested in the Smash Assist Me vids, though.

As much of a melee fan as I am there would never be an assist me for the game. What ever even made melee cross your mind? There's still a lot of depth to be had in smash 4 that a lot of people just brush off. Please don't make this a smash 4 vs melee thread.

Down on the corner, out in the street.

I agree with this, alot actually. But I don't think he intentionally wanted this to become a Smash 4 vs Melee thread :p

This is going to be awesome! I'm hyped for this. Will it be a series or a simple singular video?

This is awesome, it's been a while since the last Assist Me. And it's Smash related.

Alright!! :chuckle: I've been waiting for Smash to be featured on Assist Me for a longtime! If competitive games like UMvC3 and KI can be featured, so can Sm4sh. :)

Definitely don't mean this to be a "vs" thread.

Why wouldn't there be an assist me for Melee though? You say it like it's impossible. Melee is at a competitive peak right now and one of the biggest fighting games there is at the moment. Smash 4's growing rapidly. Both are great, but Smash 4 knowledge is all "new"- Melee has a lot of established things to teach, whereas anything taught in Smash 4 is subject to being looked as very very basic in a few years.

Primarily, the reason that it came to mind is that I played Brawl, then Project M competitively, and am simultaneously learning and moving to Smash 4 and Melee at the moment. Smash 4's been fairly easy to pick up compared to Melee, so of the two I'd personally benefit from Melee stuff more I feel, and there's just more stuff to teach readily available.
