Quote from: KarneraMythos on June 21, 2018, 01:26:45 AMRe-Introductions eh? Ahh, how time flies... Let's get cracking, shall we?

I used to go by the alias "WarIn54321", based off of an Inside Joke back in High School. I joined this site in 2008 thanks to Rocky, who introduced me and other people in IGN's comment section back when Brawl was heavily a thing. It's funny looking back and seeing everything I used to post. A lot of us are too embarrassed to talk about it, but those were funny-funny times. It makes me miss it a little considering how different, how brave, and how intimidating the world of maturity is. As the saying goes, ignorance is bliss.

I too have a degree in Graphic Design, and it has been very long since I've played with everyone here. Hell, I'm barely active in the Discord Chat. With so much to shuffle through, it's difficult to keep up with so many different tasks at once. Being an Attention Deficit Introvert makes parsing activities a lot harder than it needs to be, as the same cannot be said for people who don't have a concentration problem like I do. Nonetheless, I love this site and everyone in it, and I hope to be as active as I used to (or at least in relativity to the time available to us all).

A fellow graphic person. \o/ If it's any consolation, getting myself to focus for more than 5 minutes can often feel like pulling teeth. It's fuuuuuuuun. *eyeroll*

Artistically, I'm pretty certain I have you to thank for getting me into art again way back in 2009.

In terms of finding, I can't even remember how I found this group. I recall seeing Rocky's posts on IGN and looking there for Brawl information, but I'm not entirely sure if that was before or after visiting SP....I think so? I do remember, though, before joining being happy to find such an uncharacteristically friendly bunch. Good feels.

Quote from: RockyRaccoon on June 19, 2018, 03:11:26 PMOK i'll check out Discord and see if I can make it fit .

i'm glad you guys have the opportunity to look back and see how retarded you all used to be .
maybe now you will understand why it was so easy for me to pick on you all the time .

I haven't used it on any of my sites, but I believe there's a Discord widget that can be used, showing who's logged in and active. I THINK it serves as a portal to the Discord chat room, so everything happens off-site.

Frankly I'm amazed we somehow made it out in one piece.

Quote from: RockyRaccoon on June 19, 2018, 03:08:26 PMwow ... triple X the ASSMAN ...

i don't even remember what you did to earn that nickname . man , it has been a long time .

last time we were here , so many of you were little kids . now you guys are talking about grad school .

does anyone still play smash for wii-U ? it is hard to find a match on there with friends .
all the anyones you can play with are little retard trolls that just taunt and then run off the edge .

in case anyone cares , i got a PhD about 4 years ago, so now I am Dr. Rocky and I have the license plate to prove it .
i also have a 9 week old son named Maverick that is too young to play smash but he will kick all your asses as soon as he learns where his thumbs are .

lol, I have a vague recollection of it being because of an out of context line you saw upon entering chat.

Unfortunately I haven't had much time to game these past couple of years, but I think many of the old SP gang still play. I'll be jumping back on board for Smash 5.

Dude, doctor, congrats on all that! A baby raccoon... Maverick, middle name Hunter? =P He'll be kicking ass in no time.

Kaboom--that was the sound of history colliding with the future.

I joined in 2008 at 16, well before college. Good times. You guys kept me sane during a super difficult period and still gave me some of my favorite memories.

Now I have my BFA in Graphic Design and freelance doing graphic and web design, so far mainly with universities, college organizations, authors, and publishers.  I'm still doing traditional art as a hobby.


Quote from: NinjaGoron on June 18, 2018, 07:35:35 PMI'm James, and I am no longer 12 years old. I first posted on this site on December 28, 2007, because I saw somebody post on the IGN forums that this place SmashPower was really cool, and that IGN sucked. I came here and liked what I saw. I used to post really deep and thoughtful things such as, "i would like to have bomberman in smash, because his final smash could be a super bomb that explodes really really ginourmous" and absolutely prophetic predictions such as, "so what is his obvious final smash gonna be? a super shot. there is almost no other choice." when talking about MegaMan's final smash, if included in brawl. Made a bunch of sigs (lol), played a bunch of smash, and then fell away as brawl became less a thing.

I'm out of college now, trying to figure out what to do next for (probably) grad school. Still interested in games, and definitely interested in SSBU. Hopefully I can play with y'all again!

Whoa, someone's all grown up now! What are you considering for grad school?

Thanks again for reaching out and letting me know this place was back online. :)

Holy craaaap. Hey Rocky.

So glad to see this place with all its memories back online (although admittedly I'm trying to contain my self-directed cringe lol). I don't game much these days but I'm excited for the new Smash.

Quote from: NinjaGoron on June 18, 2018, 08:57:24 PMWhat about using a discord server as a chat?

I agree, Discord seems to be the way to go these days.

The real homie is back :) Also love how different he is from Fox now.


Different, you say? Perhaps I wasn't paying close enough attention when I should have and just assumed...what's significantly changed?

super smash brothers differences addressed in an aggressive and discourteous manner .


I'm allowed to be this every once in a while over a 6 year period!

looks like the new generation of developers at nintendo can't even manage to put the character select screen in any sensible order .


...wat. That order makes my brain hurt. It looks like they put all but (most of) the Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon characters into a randomizer.

@Frozen: Yep, as much as I'm disappointed with how a lot has turned out, in the end it's an awesome package.

Also Dark Pit's basically a speedy color swap of Pit. Excuse me as I rage.

Why the Ice Climbers were cut I'll never understand.

Those Master/Crazy Hand battles were intense.

The Duck Hunt Dog turned out to be a pretty cool fighter.
