Well it's definitely been a while. Got random email the other day saying something about this weird place called "Smashpower", and I took a look. Opened up to the same ENTER graphic I remember seeing ten years ago and memories came cascading back. I must say... seeing this place does bring a smile to my face.

I don't know how many people will come back and stay, but for those who do for a little bit I thought it'd be neat to say hello again, maybe catch up a bit on how life has been going. You all were a big part of my life for a good amount of time, and I absolutely considered you friends.

I'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!

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.

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. :)

wow ... 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.

Re-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).

what do you do with the beetles ?

We collect them from the field for ID and DNA barcoding. Ground beetles are pretty well represented across the country so the plan is using them as an indicator of how habitats and climate is changing things. We also collect mosquitos and ticks to study the spread of the diseases they're vectors for.

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.

Didn't realize the site was back up after trying a couple months back and under the impression that not even the new Smash game would bring it back (I was wrong).

It's Pabz, was at university the last couple of years while Brawl faded away and the site sorta just stayed stagnant. I'm leaving school in the back burner for now just due to circumstances the last school year and some eye-opening with my future aspirations, so now I just work at my local Home Depot part time along with working on how to ride a bike to start doing online deliveries. Big dreams for little ol' me in the future, but I'm working towards them all the while getting hyped for Smash Ultimate and some Resident Evil 2 on the side (or main course). Glad to see the site's back up cuz I always enjoyed the competition from everyone here.
