"Super Smash Bros.: Or, What Are We Fighting For?"

Date: 15 January 2015:

James "Mario, I Guess" Kerr & Pat "Falco Forever" Reddick

ABSTRACT: Dateline, 1999 - Nintendo is releasing games for the Nintendo 64 without care or concern, without marketing or warning, trying to compete as fast as they can with Sony's releases for the Playstation. From this haste and potentially accidental brilliance is born "Super Smash Brothers" - a fighting game (or is it?) of Nintendo brand characters, where you can spend hours learning the intricacies of hit boxes and your 10-year-old sister beats you up with Pikachu just by pressing B repeatedly. Is it bland? Is it brilliant? Find out for yourself. Tournament follows talk.

Game List: Featured Games: Super Smash Bros. (N64), Super Smash Bros. Melee (Gamecube), Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii), Super Smash Bros. 3DS (3DS)
