    Hi guys, I'm still alive! :D Just been busy...work and school >.<

    So yeah...over time I found less and less time to play games and less and less enjoyment with modern games. Modern games try to be cinematic, and fail at the actual gameplay. It took me months to get through Twilight Princess because I just wasn't motivated sometimes. Meanwhile, multiplayer games got a ton of action because I'd find time to play when friends come by.

    The combination of Brawl and Mega Man 9 has completely revitalized me. Mega Man 9 was the first game in ages to actually give me a game over screen, and with Smash Bros...well, I discovered the local competitive scene and got involved, and the game is so incredibly fun with strong competition. I've always been a gaming masochist- I want a game to beat the crap out of me and be difficult- and now I've got something that takes me to my current limit.

    I've managed to become one of the top Peach players in the country (not that there's a lot considering how difficult she is to play :) ), and #10 on the rankings in Washington state. I know SoCal's got a ridiculously huge Smash Bros scene, and most states have something- so I was curious if anyone here played the game competitively.

    I've temporarily loaned my Wii out to a friend, but I might be playing on WiFi occasionally again soon. Despite the lag that completely removes any semblance of skill (ugh), it's great for learning matchups or just having fun. So if anyone wants to play...let me know. And if anyone is in Washington and wants to get involved in the competitive scene, let me know as well. Both sides of the state have thriving scenes (Seattle and Spokane respectively).

    also, hi again! xD

    I want to play competitively but I don't know if the UK even has tournaments. Hoping that my girlfriends uni hosts some so I can become the Ike king or something :cool:

    You and your vids :D
