I really hope fighters kill casual games, but they won't also smash is trash compared to a real fighter, it's more fps-like in that it takes reaction times where in a fighter the pros memorize thousands of combos
Brolic (12 days ago)
Thousands? Lmfao they play 1-2 characters and smash players have spent thousands of hours getting frame data by themselves in early2000s fk outta here ignorant boy

i guess you could say smash 4 evo 2018 is another iconic moment lololol
Xalpha23 (18 days ago)
SonicFox taking his hat off was like LeBron playing without his headband in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals when his team was down big in the 4th Quarter. The rest is history for both of these legends.

man I really wanna know the soundtrack for this
Eric Frock (18 days ago)
I find it laughable that they bring those ridiculous controllers. Why don't they just use the actual arcade machines? 5:26..... LOL
DzekoVelez (10 days ago)
it's because arcade machines are very difficult to move around and organize a thousand man tourney around...not to mention alot of the newer games aren't even made in aracdes anymore...
Eric Frock (10 days ago)
+my mom The joystick is a small of the controller. I mean the whole contraption.

31:59 SonicFox: "I did not expect to be pushed this far... but it seems that I have to use it." - Takes off hat - SonicFox whispers: "Bankai." - Picks Acidic Alien -
The new entry to this list should be lil majins run in evo 2018
Ramen Boodles (23 days ago)
Question: so Hakan is low tier yet he’s hard to counter? I don’t really know anything about tiers so I need an explanation.
Ramen Boodles (12 days ago)
So it’s harder for Balrog to counter Hakan, but Hakan isn’t good against most other fighters.
dork_rex (12 days ago)
He's bad vs. the majority of the cast but against Balrog (who has to jump a lot to get in and has no projectile) Hakan is weirdly very strong just because of his usually very bad/niche moveset
isso foi show de assistir !!!
