@Abdooooo You're doing it wrong! The achievement is for getting 20 KOs in the "3-Minute Smash" mode in Multi-Man Smash. It's in there with 100-Man Smash and Cruel Smash and stuff.

Son of a...! Thanks for pointing this out. This will be much easier now.

This game is so addicting. It's getting in the way of my completion of Luigi's Mansion, ha ha. [/first_world_problems]

I played like, two hours of online matches last night. SO happy that the netcode actually works. That alone makes this about 1000 times better than Brawl. Even after that amount of time spent online, I was still hungry for more!

This....I may have a problem.

It's Friday! Is anyone interested in a good old Free-For-All?

What time are you thinking? I'm gonna be busy later tonight, but if you're thinking sooner than that, we can probably get in some matches real quick.

I'm flexible today. When are you free?
10/17/14, 23:30   
@Zero I assume you're talking about a physical copy yes? Unless this game is some goofy exception, regular save data is stored on the game card. The stuff that's stored on the SD card is StreetPass data, as well as any extra/update data. So you shouldn't have to unlock stuff again, but you'd have to set up StreetPass again and download updates again if there are any.

Oops, sorry about yesterday. The company I was expecting over at my house showed up sooner than I anticipated, so I was pretty much tied up for the remainder of the evening. I'm free today for the most part, so let me know if you're able to throw down at all.
10/18/14, 18:12   

It just so happens I am, indeed, free today. I don't have anything planned yet, at least.

What is your time of preference, good sir?
10/18/14, 18:33   
I'll try to join in at whatever time you guys decide.

So, back when the N64 Smash came out Samus was probably my #1 character, or #2 behind Link. But it felt like she got worse and worse... Melee she was "ok", Brawl she was kind of nerfed and not very effective. Is this accurate?

I've been using her in the 3DS game and she seems pretty good again? Does anyone else feel this or am I nuts?

@Mop it up Awesome thanks for answering.
10/18/14, 20:41   
Nuts you aren't. Samus feels like a legit good character. Basically, the balance in this game is incredible, it feel like every character is viable at a high level of competition. The only characters that I feel may be a tad OP right now are Zero Suit Samus, and possibly Little Mac. However I've learned how to deal with Little Mac, you just stay near the edge and kick him off stage. ZSS is just so quick and packs a big punch, I can't deal. Oh, and everyone who plays Bowser and flops off the edge for a cheap win in For Glory is an asshole.
10/18/14, 21:09   
Yesssssssssssssssss working Samus back into my rotation again then. Happy days!

I had also tried out Zero Suit Samus and yeah, she seems uber powerful in this game. I was kicking butt with her.

I dunno what changed since yesterday, but my connections are a LOT smoother. I had great connections all day in With Anyone, and I just got done with some matches with a friend that were perfect, when yesterday they were total slide shows. Dunno what changed, but hopefully it stays that way. EDIT: Yeah played a few more with other friends, the connections were so much better than yesterday. Still have no idea what's different, but as long as it still works, I'm cool with it.
Just played online for the first time in about two weeks. My connections were all pretty spotty, lots of hitches going on. I don't know why my connection is so streaky. Is anyone else's connection quality jumping up and down?
10/18/14, 21:56   
I've been having smooth matches more often than the choppy ones, but I don't have the consistency of, say, 10 perfectly fine (no lag and almost no input delay) plays on For Glory consecutively. Still, I'm impressed with the Team Battle mode and amount of good quality games I had there, even though 4 systems in different places often result in a horrible freezy experience.

@HammerLord Well for me, it seems more day-to-day: Day 1 I had no good connections, Day 2 I had a long series of good connections, and then today all my connections were spotty.

Well, perhaps this may be a problem with your internet service and/or something to do with the area where you live.
I have a 15MB connection and it works just fine, for most of the time.
Speaking of region, wouldn't it be great if we had the option to chose playing with people from our own area? Or at least a way to know where your opponent is from. Keep the anonymity, but having a little feature like this would do wonders for online play.

We had these in Mario Kart Wii and 8, but not in 7, possibly because of hardware limitations, I don't know. It'd be great to have it in the Wii U version of this.

Also, Anon, I don't think Grant will be back anytime soon. Would you like to wait a bit more?

Let's have a battle around 4pm EST, shall we?
10/18/14, 22:41   
You mean in about 10 minutes? Sure. I'll be in the chat.


Great couple of matches with 4 people and some tight fights with Mikey. Recorded some really nice plays with Dedede. They don't call me HammerLord for nothin'!

Thanks to everyone who was there, including Zero.
