Anyone else stuck with this kind of cancer? How do I deal with it? Last time we sat down to play I just walked out as soon as he picked Zero Suit Samus. I want to play smash but he's just fucking insufferable.
Items are fun. I enjoy items. Whats wrong with items? Why do you hate items? Why can't we just play with items on some of the time? I think you need to leave your prejudices against items behind. Items are great. Items are wonderful. Let's all play with items on.
>can't beat someone who doesn't shield
>can't beat ZSS spammers
People who banwagon onto Top Tier characters almost always have horrible Smash play and shouldn't even be hard to deal with. Honestly, Charizard is a much better character for scrubs who want to feel good at the game...

items are fun
Smash 4 is the first game in which I haven't enjoyed items, because some of the new ones are just fucking stupidly overpowered; in fact, most of the new items are pretty much guaranteed KOs which is infuriating considering how frequently they pop up even on the normal setting.
I generally turn some off and maybe set the frequency to low, but I still play with items on unless I'm training for For Glory.
You're still a fucking idiot though, and you should git gud. Even with all the shitty new items you can still win if you're not fucking terrible.
>People still insist Smash is a casual game
>Playing with a friend
>Every time he hits with an aerial or a smash he says "Get fucked"
>He keeps saying it over and over
>I'm beating his ass, but every time he says it he acts as if he is in a commanding lead and is smug as shit
>I politely ask him to not say it
>"LOL YOU MAD BRO? YOU MAD? LOL YOU SO MAD!"
>Continue to beat his ass and just stop talking
>He keeps saying "Get fucked"
>Eventually after he loses 20 games in a row he says he is sick of smash 4
>Asks to play Mario Kart 8
>We play and he is a completely fine amiable guy, just like he normally is
Why does Smash turn him into such a meme spouting faggot? He literally never acts like that ASIDE from when we play Smash. In other Vidya he is fine, cracking jokes, and having a good time.
>implying I can't beat him
I can, it's fucking boring to play against though, and just mildly infuriating at times when he starts screeching "oooh wombo combo" when he throws a smart bomb at me.
I have a friend like that.
He turns into an ape whenever we play any fighting game (inb4 HURR >SMASH >FIGHTER). He says shit like "You suck" every time he gets a punish, or when he gets a read he'll say "Read, easy". He'll be losing constantly, and I'll be about to get a perfect and he'll do a wake up Shoryuken and hit me and be like "Read, bitch" in the most serious way ever, and when he does win he acts like he is way better than me and recounts how he just beat me like its a war story. "Mmm... yeah, I saw you going for the jump in so I did my anti air cause I read that, and then I knew you were gonna go for something else, so I did another Shoryuken and got you. It was a pretty easy match once I got a few reads in"
However, when we're NOT playing fighting games he is awesome. We can be playing other competitive games where the goal is to win and he is a great guy, but fighting games do something to his brain.
>Thinking Smash isn't a fighting game
>Thinking Smash Is a casual game
>Ignorance this large
>Implying Melee isn't the most popular fighting game played competitively
Sounds like you're losing against him. If it is a good competitive game then surely you could find a way to counter his bullshit.
That's how I got decent at blazblue anyways.
>Guy finds attack that works against me
>Guy uses same attack over and over again hoping for one button win
>Learn how to counter attack easily thanks to lots of practice
>Guy switches to next one button win
>Rinse and repeat
Yeah items are just random bullshit, but that works for you as well. Most of them you can dodge anyways.
>"Oh boy I'm gonna show OP so hard"
>type git gud
>rub jew hands together
All of my friends, even the most casual faggots hate items. How can people actually enjoy them?
I have friends who literally never play vidya aside from at parties who refuse to play with items because they're stupid and annoying.
I mean, I'm not complaining. Its also nice that my brother and two of my friends play smash very seriously so I'm always able to get good games.
Not him and haven't tried it yet, but I assume it's as much bullshit as event matches on hard in this one.
>Little Mac with 100% against 3 Little Macs á 5 stocks
>All one shot each other
>Grabs take to long and attacks might be read by input and countered.
>Reward for doing it in 45 seconds
Fuck you Sakurai, half the event matches just suck in this one, cause the AI does whatever it wants and sometimes only leaves the option to try counter their attacks and hope it works.
When I played with items in Brawl, I usually disabled smash-balls and dragoon parts, cause it becomes a hunting fest instead of a fight, food cause it's boring and everyone ignores it anyway and maybe some minor lame stuff such as smoke ball. If you have hammers, pokeballs etc, Heart containers mean nothing. Not sure how I'll handle items in Sm4sh, but wind gun sucks horsedicks.
No, this isn't becoming a chain of "group ab everyone", as >>274369353 pointed out already, Smash 4's difficulty comes from unpredictable reactions by cpu and the fact, that cpu teams don't have friendly fire.
>be playing melee with a friends
>the fourth guy wont play if items are on, if we chosse a "banned" stage or if its a free for all
>he chooses Fox or Sheik
>yells wombo combo everytime he shines someone
>yells get fucked when he takes a stock
>gets upset if someone taunts if he SD
Anyone stuck with this kind of cancer? We just want to have fun
It's just hardcore players who hate items, and thinks items mess up matches.
>>the fourth guy wont play if items are on, if we chosse a "banned" stage or if its a free for all
Are you his fucking escort or what. He's free to fuck off If he has any problem
Some of them are pretty shit.
If a dragoon or daybreak piece spawns thats mostly all you're getting until it's completed. Beetle/Galaga seem a bit strong for what they are too. Depending on the stage you can be killed at about 60% by it.
IT'S CHEEEEEEEEEEEAP A BLOO BLOO BLOO WAAAAAH MOMMY HE'S BEATING MEEEEEEE
Nigger please, I played for the first time ever and beat a guy who's be playing since launch. He used villager, I used gren
I play with items sometimes. Its fun. Theres no reason not to play with them on occsionally. I play smash with items off all the time and enjoy the "raw" fighting of it, but I dont want to play it all the time.
Its like in an fps game. I dont ALWAYS want to play death match. I dont ALWAYS want to play CTF or bomb base or whatever. I like variety, even if I do typically play only no items final destination, I dont just always want to play it.
People that do only want to play certain gametypes/styles are fags.
Maybe you should've been fast and grabbed the free 50% item yourself you massive loser.
maybe sometimes it isn;t just about being super sick hardcore outplaying people. Maybe it's fun to give everyone a chance and laugh at how ridiculous that last KO was.
Maybe you need friends.
>Housemate just bought Smash bros for wii u
>Pick DK every time
>Grab him and walk off the edge
>He bans me from playing with him.
>He says playing without items "isn't fun" Enjoys shitty random item spam
But items do make the game more fun. Evens the battlefield in terms of skill so the same person is less likely to win every single time.
>Last time we sat down to play I just walked out as soon as he picked Zero Suit Samus.
I don't play Smash competitively, but I compete in tournaments for other FGs. The friends I play Smash with compete as well, and we help train each other whenever majors start getting close.
Simply put, if this is your actual mentality, you're a complete bitch. If the guy says he prefers items, then you're saying you prefer things to be more competitive.
He obliges by picking a good character and you bitch about it. Y'know you can pick ZSS too, right? Don't spout any of that bullshit about "tierwhoring," if you're playing for Glory it's because you want to win. He did too so he picked a good character, how is there a problem here?
>not yelling "allah akbar" everytime you jump on your rocket
Oh yeah because "a lot of the time" it spawns on your opponent. It's just as likely to spawn on you, and if you really don't suck, then you could porbbaly get it in all other cases.
Not him but I do FG because I want to have fun and 4 player is a lagfest. Clearly I'm not alone since I've run into a fair number of people that clearly just want to have fun or goof off and I can play 20 rounds with them and have a blast.
I played gordo tennis with a D3 for 4 matches straight the other day. The only damage that was allowed was if I missed or he failed to block. It was stupid as fuck but still fun.
I respect that, I play Smash with items on. I don't give a fuck about playing Smash competitively, I grew up on trad 2d and 3d fighters so that's what I play when I want to be competitive.
What I'm getting at is that if you're actively trying to play Smash "for fun" then don't bitch when you turn off items and people resort to more competitive picks. You're eliminating the "for fun" involved, and fucking no one is stopping you from picking the same character or even a better one.
I'm wondering which items to turn off to prevent bullshit without going full on omega-only.
>Gust Bellows kills at 0%
>Bob-omb can ruin your day by spawning on top of you
>That fucking Beetle
What other items are irredeemable bullshit?

Holy shit op you're a fucking faggot. You don't even deserve to have someone consider you a friend. Keep this shit up and soon I doubt you will.
>have a friend who's absolutely useless with items on

>being this autistic
Do so many of you really hold grudges and act similarly childish while playing smash with friends? Lots of you guys seem to get genuinely pissed when their friend chooses their favorite character/trashtalks/prefers items or no items.
Was playing smash with my best buddy this weekend.

What I hate about Classic is how every move by both you and the computer players deals like twice the damage and knockback compared to a normal match. It makes it all go quicker, sure, but it also leaves you susceptible to complete bullshit. Getting smacked around in a match with 5 or more opponents, none of who seem to target each other much despite it being a FFA match, and then being KOd by some stray tilt that would never have killed in a regular match at that point is some horseshit. Team battles are even worse, and the fighting Mii team matches can quickly turn into nightmares if there's multiple Gunners on stage firing off fsmashes without a need to care for friendly fire. I just want to have a try at Master Core and Fortress in a fair battle already, why do I need to deal with this crap?
Well firstly your a faggot and playing with items off isn't fun. Secondly, are you guys just 1 on 1? At least add some level 9 bots like fuck. And thirdly, if he's so shit, why aren't you just stomping him into the dirt?
>Play Smash with friends of varying degrees of ability

Why don't you realize local co op is going to be completely dead pretty soon. Enjoy it while you can and stop bitching
You been ignoring all the outrage about how Sm4sh is less balanced than Brawl? About how Nintendo are straying too far from Melees roots of a "true fighter"?
Fuck off. Smash is to comp fighters as TF2 is to comp shooters.
I haven't been ignoring it, I'm fully aware of it.
But if you think your made-up story about somebody playing "no items fox only final destination" is going to prove a point you're an idiot.
>1v1 no items final destination 4stock fox only
This is and always has been a joke. Nobody who knows anything about the competitive scene takes that seriously.
>Sm4sh is less balanced than Brawl
nobody thinks this.
>say something ridiculous
>when somebody says "that's ridiculous" that must mean they believe it
Really though, you should have made your story at least a little bit believable.
>This is and always has been a joke.
Hence why I used those exact words to reference the hyperbole. We didnt actually restrict ourselves to Fox. Im glad you completely missed that.
Ah, so you'd rather just stick your hands over your ears and shout LALALA NOT REAL DONT BELIEVE YOU. Shouldve just not replied in the first place.
>play mostly without items because they're garbage
>every now and then play Fast Giant Heavy Metal Stamina-Stock with no blast zones for the hell of it

>Main Meta Knight because holy fuck it's Meta Knight
>Went from 'massive faggot' to 'bro-tier' in one game
Thanks Smash 4
Why can't people realize that the point of smash is to play how you like?
If people prefer to play without items, that's fine. They're not casuals that can't handle them - they're probably the opposite - and lots of people don't find the randomness and chaos fun.
If people like playing with items, that's also fine. You shouldn't be elitist about not liking items.
i play with my man lucario because he does taichi and i do taichi and its fucking rad when I hit smash and his 45 minute smash animation is coming out and I can follow along with a push or some shit i do it right to my opponent so i smash their character and them it creates more immersion imo
Some people are total dicks in direct competition.
I almost always beat my friends in fightan games but I try to be civil about it, give them tips, tell them how to block/counter shit they're having trouble with, etc.
There's one friend who's mediocre but always talks like he's the worst piece of shit to ever get crapped out. Any time he takes a round or wins he jumps up and fucking celebrates and shouts "I BEAT ANON!"
It's incredibly hard to stay a good sport when he does that shit.
Sounds like this kid we had dubbed "fat ness kid"
He was probably around 16, extremely fat, only played 2 games at the LAN center: Melee and Naruto 3 for GCN.
The guy didn't seem to have anything as severe as autism, he was just a massive smug non-self-aware douchebag. He'd smack talk like fucking crazy and then get fucking destroyed and stomp off in a huff.
One time he was hitting on this girl who wanted to play Naruto 3 (he would guard the copy he rented, the LAN's only copy, like a fucking rabid dog) while he was playing. Somehow he thought a 3-match streak would impress her enough that she'd get past the looks, smell, and personality.
I asked the next person up if I could cut in and he agreed. I picked the dog character as a joke, and fat ness kid picked the third hokage. He tried to spam fire breath or something to lame it out. Except he's a fat retard with no reflexes so I just dashed under it each time and double-perfected him.
The entire LAN burst into laughter.
The girl was up next and to try and salvage the loss he said "If he picks the dog again just let me take him, I'll get rid of him for you."
I just gave the controller back to the guy who let me cut and said "Nah, this game sucks, you guys have fun."
I wish I had more stories about him, he was pretty well known as a colossal faggot at that center, but it was mainly my friends who hung out there and not me.

>Completely destroy someone online

Every single time. And it's always "OP" character like rosalina, diddy or ZSS, and they always just rollspam, never properly edgeguard and are always too scared to go into the air.
sooo you guys fucked yes?
>OP wants to play without items

>he claims he's bored of smash and wants to play something else
the little shit was gloating and showboating the whole time, it felt real good. I'm a sportsman so I never taunted but that last win with Ike was so glorious I had to do it.
I just play Smash against my 13 year old brother.
I tend to play Captain Falcon, because I know his moveset the best, and like his playstyle the most. He is also entertaining as fuck.
My brother switches around a bit more, but it seems that the Villager is kind of his favorite, as he loves that god damn tree chopping move.
It's pretty fun to play against him, as we are pretty evenly matched. If only the Wiimotes weren't such torture on my fingers, as I can't play for long periods of time without getting my hands sore.
Whenever I go to my friend's he always passes me the controller for hard sfuff and thinks I'm a master of the vidya.
I haven't played anything but slow paced strategy games in the last couple years.
I'm trying to convince myself to buy a PS4 because I miss ppaying with the guy but he needs to stop worshipping me as the god of vidya.
>beat the ever living shit out of your friend in a game
Nice reading comprehension, cocksucker. We're fairly even, I just have that little bit more which translates to a higher win %.
And again, this isn't just when he gets a hard-earned win after trying for a while, this happens EVERY TIME he wins. He's a sore winner.
>I can't handle playful banter!
Haha, alright sperglord.
My best and only IRL friend is an aspie who refuses to use equipment or customs.
Before I thought of using customs without equipment I was pissed because I love the customization but it was unfair if he didn't use equipment. Now I customize and he doesn't, but its still fucking boring.
>Play Project M with friend
>Mostly beat him, I take it pretty seriously
>He starts getting gud
>Jokingly tell him I've started to let him win
>Laugh and tell him that he's actually gotten a lot better

>can't joke around and play characters I'm not good with anymore
>not having fun anymore
Problem is, when two have totally different opinions on what makes the game fun. Usually results in stories, where some retarded tourneyfag thinks, he's the shit while he can't even do simple stuff like wavedash let alone play with items.
>Sadly, some people sink their self-esteem into video games.
What do you think this is? Kindergarten? Do you want to hold hands while you play your main Little Mac?
No seriously, edgeguarding belongs in smash just as meteor smash and items do.
>Be playing smash with a friend
>Say he's shit and casual
>Moans about losing to him
Just beat him
Its that easy
If you can beat someone every time you play its impossible to get mad
>You been ignoring all the outrage about how Sm4sh is less balanced than Brawl? About how Nintendo are straying too far from Melees roots of a "true fighter"?
recently? honestly i havent heard anything like this. I hear people complaining about people who say that, but i havent actually heard it. Can you or somebody link an article or another thread where a lot of people are saying that?
>someone's down to play smash
>doesn't matter which iteration of the game, it's always the same 2 shit groups
>group 1 is almost always the anti-competitive fags that go "lolo pokeballs on super high, 99 stock on 300%, lolo pokefloats so random!"
>group 2 is the FD/BF only fags that say to play random characters and proceed to shit talk when people get characters they don't knkw how to play or pick the lowest-skill cieling character and proceed to cheese out everyone who doesn't play the game religiously
>either group obnoxiously decides what way to play first
>other group complains about how items/no items isn't fun and we switch to the other one
>first group bitches about the change and we stop playing because nobody can come to a compromise
tl,dr I've played smash with plenty of groups and the outcome is always the same. Always super srs only or a gigantic clusterfuck on-screen, with no middleground.
Most of my friends and family group like to play with all items except healing items and random stage.
I have only one friend who always insist on play FD one on one, and the funny part is that he wins more often with items than without them, maybe because he mains captain falcon
as long as they're on low they can be good, but after playing smash for 15 years usually with items on its gotten pretty boring especially with all the new one hit kill items. I dont see items as fun anymore I find it much more fun to actually learn a character better and try to read what your opponent is going to do.
I also think smash 4 is better on 3ds since the simple controls make it really boring on a console, but make complete sense for a handheld
Yeah, and stories where some retarded casual elitist throws a fit when items are turned off because he can't win without them.
Nobody says those things, it's all made up.
I mained Samus in 64, Melee, and Brawl. During Brawl I came to enjoy ZSS's gameplay more than regular Samus. Now that she's a separate character I made her my main, not because she's one of the best, but because I love Metroid and have always liked Samus. I do feel bad and try not to use her against my friends much though because I am unstoppable when I use her.
>tfw none of your friends are good at amash, but you want to have a good time so you hide your power level and let them win but deep down in your soul you know that you could str8 destroy them.
That's why I always choose random against normals
What exactly is edgeguarding, is it guarding them FROM the edge or while they're already on the edge?
I play and do well in other fightan like BB and GG but I suck cocks at Smash
Edgeguarding is preventing them from getting back on the edge. Harder to do in Sm4sh than Melee thanks to ledge mechanic changes and some recovery buffs (ledge mechanic changes were beneficial overall because planking is gone) but the general Idea is that they can't stay off stage forever and that by keeping them off they will die. Unless they are playing as metaknight in brawl.
Preventing them to get to the edge, or punishing them as they get to it.
Like how marth uses counter on the 3rd jump, or fair as they do the second jump to gimp them. Or how ZZS stays at a safe distance when they're on the edge to side B if they roll or attack, or punish if they jump.
>Try For Glory
>Get brutally raped no matter who I use or who I'm against
OP just sounds like bait.
I always play with items on to give a fair advantage for my roommates.
However, since I'm the only one who knows what all the items do and how to use them, I usually tend to wreck the shit out of them still anyway
I know that feel, anon.
> Faggot friends all pick Fox, Marth, Ike and Falco
> Pick Jigglypuff

Generation raised where nobody ever loses. You're on the honor roll for maintaining your body temperature at normal. George Carlin warned us that this is the human shit we are raising.
Trust me I played Fate/Extra and videogames wouldn't lie to me
Sometimes there are people who think that winning in fighting games or Madden or 2K is like winning a fight or a game in real life. They'll cheer and yell and talk shit like its actually important to them
>He says playing without items "isn't fun" Enjoys shitty random item spam
>Only characters he plays are cheap top tiers like ZSS and Rosalina because he read they're good on the internet
HURR I PRAY GAEM FOR TECHINCAL SKILL IT NO FUN IF FUN IS INVOLVED
Why can't winning be fun?
Like you can have all the fun you want but that won't stop me from motorboating your ass with my tipper
I'm not saying it can't be fun, but surely it's the game itself that's making it fun.
If there was a game where you pressed a single button and it said 'YOU WIN', would that be fun?
>All my friends are pretty good, and we all share pretty similar rule preferences

It's pretty disappointing.

Its all about the environment you play in.
My friend is the same way. He always plays as fox, loves items, and never shields.
My advice to you is to just fucking lighten up and have fun, anon. Not everyone is into the competitive side of Smash Bros.
Yeah it can be bullshit when he wins because a golden hammer spawned right in front of him, but its good for a few laughs.
Insist on not playing with items.
Everyone has their tastes. Items are very much hit and miss for a lot of people. Just tell him to play some game with you without items or tell him to fuck off.
>Have friend I call 'Goob'

There's no fucking winning
Just disable the ridiculous "free kill" items like bellows, beetle and galaga and go nuts.
If you really can't win a single match just because he picked up a fucking ray gun or something, try gitting gud.

Holy shit this. Especially at

Kinda reminds me of that similiarly cheesy Sonic video where two guys play Sonic on their Sega genesis and Sonic and Shadow appear.

And then I learned to be a cheap faggot and give myself retarded defense and healing equipment. Because fuck that noise.
There's something about Dedede that effects the enemy's ability to play. I think Dedede has some sort of retard aura, where people suddenly play like retards against him. Every time I play Dedede online, my opponents fall for the stupidest shit and get read like books.
>Why do you hate things that encourage you not to use your characters abilities and instead turn into fights where everyone picks up the same weapons with the same attributes and spams them at eachother
Might as well not have the whole roster and just have wireframes spam items at eachother.
then don't play with him? I don't understand the issue, there is online now.
>Want to play smash
>Have to play online if I want to play with a human bean because no friends nearby, or at all
>Only ever get to suffer with lag and packet loss while playing smash with some nigger on the other side of the planet that shares his internet with 5 other people who are all torrenting HD porn
>No "Regional" mode that selects opponents based on how close their IP address is to mine
I don't understand how you could POSSIBLY overlook this feature. There must be plenty of people I could fight that aren't >50ms ping away from me. Even Mario Kart had this.
>I play games for the match maker
eharmony is my favorite game
I've never won ;_;
yeah hey how do I get good it seems like the people in for glory are playing the game in 1/4th speed while all my buttons are the take damage buttons.
what gives where can I learn to get good? how can i learn to get good? where would I even start to get good? should I just get bodied for a good few months until the good switch just flips I know with experience comes skills and all but uhh what do?
>play with friends on launch day
>play on a massive TV in friends movie room
>friend 1 chooses Metaknight and spams Side B
>WHAT THE FUCK WHY DOES HE KEEP FALLING OFF THE EDGE AND KILLING HIMSELF WHY CAN'T I CONTROL IT
>tell him to pick a different character
>I'm only good with him
>friend 2 chooses a bunch of random characters
>neither know how to roll or grab even though I've told them how
>keep losing to me
>"Dude, you're such a fucking faggot. You don't even give us a chance to fight back. Plus you've been playing the DS version so you have experience."
>I'm literally trying to avoid using tilts and KOing them, they just keep killing themselves
My friends are cancer.
>Fight other characters in melee combat
>Not a fighting game because I don't like it
>He thinks smash is a fighting game
pic related: you right now
Yeah I fight people in FPS games too doesnt make them fighting games
>yfw you realize Smash is a fighting game
>What is melee combat gameplay
All "fighting" games are actually shooters because you can fire projectiles at opponents.
It's okay, maybe once smash 6 comes out and Namco makes the entire thing you can truly call Smash a fighting game.
>play online with friend
>he plays samus
>end up as game and watch
>have literally no idea how to play him
>just spam judge
>kill him all 4 times (4 stock) with level 9 judge
we were both fucking laughing our asses off
Get to it man, I've only got like 30 images.
Jesus christ you guys are too easy to bait.
Been playing a bit of Smash 4, I actually like it a lot, love how normal move combos are actually useful and the roster has some really fun newcomers.
Oh yeah shitpost mccgee? What makes a fighting game then?
>implying it's taking the bait if I take it off the hook before putting it in my mouth
Maybe if you try not playing a completely shit game you might be able to get into it.
It's gay shit
Search like shota succubus yaoi on Ex
I exclusively crop gay shit.
How do you know I wasn't sincere the whole time?
Not MK for one.
Even among MK though MKvsDC is shit tier.
If you REALLY want to try a western fighter then Injustice or KI is pretty much the only decent ones but if you dont care and want to play good games then Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, Marvel,
Persona 4 Ultimaxor KoF is your best bets.
3d is pretty much DoA, VF and Tekken and they're pretty hard to get into.
>tfw playing smash with a friend
>always gets mad at me because I play with items, personally I think it's fun because I'm not a tryhard faggot
>play as my favorite characters
>friend fycking loses his shit
why don't you just wrek him? and make it a point that he is a piece of shit, like pick random, give him a handicap, and rape him in the mouth.
OR I DONT KNOW GO PLAY ONLINE AND GET BETTER FRIENDS?
>This is what casuals actually believe
>One of my friend's friends heres that I'm good at Smash
>Challenges me to a battle
>Say sure, because why the fuck not
>He tells me "Just warning you, I'm pretty good at this game."
>He turns items off and chooses an Omega stage, so I figure me might actually be good
>He picked Kirby
>He just floats over me and uses Up+B or Down+B for the entire match
>He literally does only that, zero other moves, the entire fucking match
I honestly felt bad beating him.
Why can't anybody I know git gud? The only person I know who puts up a fight is one of my buddies, but he uses Yoshi exclusively and prefers to fight for fun, i.e. all items on, random stage, customs and equipment on.
>do as he wishes, turn items on
>play as annoyingly defensive as possible, don't throw a single attack and focus on being a dickie bitch
>wait till the white fan looking thing spawns (if it's still in sm4sh)
>keep him hitstunned in the infinite fag slap item whilst staring at him shouting "YEAH LETS HAVE ITEMS ON AREN'T THEY FUN GOSH I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN OH MAN WHAT A BALANCED FAIR FIGHT WE'VE HAVING WOOOOOOOOW"
It was actually Injustice that I played and not MKvsDC. Apparently its very similar to MK 2011 mechanically and developed by the same studio. I don't know if that's true, I never played.
Just to clarify, it was Injustice that i couldn't get into, not MKvsDC.
>Not playing ping-pong with the bettle
Interesting, if you git gud it can be a decent game but most people will tell you it isn't worth the effort, the balance is all over the place and NRS can't decide if they want it to appeal to casuals or the competitive scene.
Just play Street Fighter.
This happened to me except I was playing my buddy and his friend randomly joined, my buddy texts me "he's pretty good".
My friend isn't good and I always destroy him, so I'm thinking "oh okay, maybe this guy will be a challenge"
1v1 and gets 2 stocked.
Why can't I have anyone around me who's
Maybe yall just need some new friends? Shit i dunno
>Have friends over almost every night to play vidya
>usually end up playing some Melee or Sm4sh
>sometimes we turn items on, sometimes not
>if they're on we all acknowledge its just purely for fun
>if they're off, we play seriously but are still good sports about it
>that one guy that gets pissy we just shun until he mans up and starts laughing at his own deaths
Win some lose some but if you're letting anger get in the way of the game maybe just turn that shit off...
When items are on, it's not like everyone suddenly stops using their actual character's abilities and exclusively uses items.
What he said was an exaggeration. It does not happen.
Smash went overboard with the LMAO SO CRAZZZZY stages and items.
My friends who are casual as fuck non-gamers get frustrated at the shit stages and blatantly overpowered items in smash 4, meanwhile almost nobody complained about them in melee, 64 or brawl.
