Anyway, my friends and I have been following There will be Brawl pretty closely since its inception. I'm not sure if anyone else in the community has been watching it (I see a post for episode 1 below;, but if so Episode 5 just went up a few days ago! You can find it here plus the earlier episodes and even bonus footage. ^_^
If you do not know what I am talking about it's a web series that is a bit of a dark parody on the SSB universe. It's live action and extremely well-done, I must say. Check it out!
Also, I am looking to try and get into Brawl semi-competitively again, but I recently moved to the Boston area and all my SSB buddies are spread out across the country now. I really hate playing on the laggy wi-fi and so I am sort of looking for people who like to smash in the area. I know LJ is a long shot; next stop is smash boards but trying to avoid it. :P If anyone's interested to know, I mainly play Toon Link followed by Zelda, Falco, Big Link, Game and Watch, and Pikachu....but in any good smash session I will pick a lot of characters. =o
Apologies in advance for the cross-post! ^^;
