I haven't played in forever, but I do enjoy the Smash series.

What character do you main Flash?

Yeah, I consider the Smash series one of the best Rock Joe. I prefer its fighting engine over other fighter engines.

Hmm, Donkey Kong or Sonic mostly. I'll have to check the stats.

Yeah, I have the game, but haven't played it in ages.  I remember back when it first came out, I played the heck out of it, unlocking just about everything (I think I maybe hand a handful of challenges left on the board).  I even played a few matches online, which was usually humbling, although I had my moments.

I still like the game/series, but haven't really felt like getting back into it.  Plus, by now, I'm sure the only people left are just like the ungodly people who've been playing it the whole time and would likely kick my butt without me being even able to scratch them.  I suppose a bit like the newbies who come up against me in Excitebots. :D  ??? :'(
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

Cool Flash, not many people play Donkey Kong much anymore because of DeDeDe players and Metaknights but the later is soon to be no more.

Somewhat true thejude. There would be a skill gap but nothing you could not overcome with practice. ;)

Yeah, I thought I read somewhere something about a character being "banned" from Brawl, but I wasn't really sure about the legitimacy of the statement or the reasons for it (I think it was on the gameFAQs main Wii board which is... not all that trustworthy sometimes...)

Is this true and if so what are the reasons.  Seems like a pretty silly thing.

It has actually been a major topic for three years on Smash World Forums. Metaknight is such a good character that he is "almost" broken *though a lot of people do consider him broken*. He sits on the line of "I am a really good character but not too good to be banned and if you face me in a tourney you will have a really tough time winning". He dominates most tourneys *to the point that almost everyone secondaries him* and has made many people quit as well. He also has had many rules created for the purpose of limiting him *so he is still fair to play against* in such cases as stalling, planking and scrooging. As for Metaknight himself *he has no bad matchups by the way*, he has some of the fastest moves in the game with high priority and transcendental moves *only two of his attacks are non-transcendent*. It may seem like a silly thing but here in America's Smash scene Metaknight is dominant *until January 9th that is*.

Just for a comparison, just think of the Roach in ExciteBots on an escalated scale. Sure other bots can stand a chance but the Roach is deemed the best due to its qualities. Now just imagine nerfing the bots that can do well against it by a couple of points and then you got a similar situation as to that of Brawl. The bots that can still do well have to work very hard to win and sometimes that is not even guaranteed yet the Roach would not be broken but just superior.

Lots of patience, losses and experience. She has a very steep learning curve due to her be a very technical character.
