Title: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: DarkAce on June 15, 2008, 02:16:00 pm
I main Donkey Kong, Ice Climbers and Marth, but I'm good with a variety of characters.


You?


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 16, 2008, 11:52:34 am
I'm planning on maining Ike, Meta Knight, Solid Snake and Lucario when the game comes out in the UK.

For melee, Link, Marth and Falco are my unstoppable trio! ;)

Haven't got Brawl though.... :(


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: OL1V3R on June 16, 2008, 03:36:04 pm
In Melee, I tend to play as (and am good with) Link, Young Link, Samus and Pikachu.

I prefer Young Link to Link, so I wonder if I'll find Toon Link better than Link in Brawl...

At least there's only 2 more weeks before I can start to find out! :D

Out of curiosity, what control method do you think you'll be using? I might use the Wii Remote sideways (especially with the Wii Remote Jacket :)), but if not, I'll be using the GameCube pad instead.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: DarkAce on June 17, 2008, 01:54:01 am
Lots of Links here. My mains were completely different to who I predicted they would be. Also, use the 'cube controller, much easier.

TL is quite different to YL. He has no kick's, the dair is changed hugely and he's a lot floatier.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 17, 2008, 08:21:27 am
My main in Melee was Roy, which is why I'm going for completely new mains in Brawl.

And the winner is - HYPNOTOAD -

Link,
He come to town,
He come to save
The princess Zelda;
Ganon took her away,
Now the children don't play,
But he's here
To save the day - Allelujia!

So Link,
Fill up your hearts
So you can shoot
Your sword with power;
And if you feel down
The fairy will come around
So that you are not a sissy coward

(insrumental)

So Link
You saved the day,
Put Ganon
In his grave;
Now Zelda is free,
The children all see,
Link:
You will go down in history


Guess who I'll be playing as


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.

Hmmm...let me see....oh I know! It's Bowser! Right? Am I right?  ;D

Lol though....never seen somone so enthousiastic about a SBB character....


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 18, 2008, 05:19:49 am
I presume it will be Dark Link as well.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Hypnotoad on June 18, 2008, 05:22:40 am
That goes without saying!!!

Dark Link
He come to town
He looks all weird
As weird as Link does
When you dress up as he
People clearly can see
That you're sad
And dress as link - obviously


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 18, 2008, 05:23:43 am
Hey, I know you. It was easy to guess you'd be using him in our Brawl matches.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Pieisgreat on June 19, 2008, 12:11:42 pm
Marth, Sheik, Lucario, Sonic, Toon Link, blah de blah...

Post by: Dialga on June 19, 2008, 12:25:25 pm
In Melee, my mains were Yoshi, Peach, Samus and Kirby. In Brawl, my mains are Yoshi, Meta Knight, Lucas and Kirby. I like the fact that in Brawl, there are more of a variety of characters to choose from and get good using them.

Post by: Hypnotoad on June 19, 2008, 12:37:46 pm
Kirby's nigh on unkillable... my sister mains as him, and gets to twice the damage % that everyone else dies on

I still prefer Link though


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Dialga on June 19, 2008, 12:40:26 pm
My reasons for using Kirby is the fact that his is small...yes he can be sent flying, but because he is small he can dodge many attacks from taller characters. Hes pretty even...plus hes somewhat funny as well. :D


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Leonri on June 19, 2008, 12:45:04 pm
I hate him because he won't die! You give him a blow that would kill Bowser and next minute he's back, stealing your wig! (I like to say he's absorbed your essence ;))

You heard him, back to topic

I have a feeling that, like DarkAce, my mains will be completely different to who I think they will be.

I pick characters based on how they handle rather than the game series they come from.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Ratiqu on June 22, 2008, 03:54:09 pm
I usually use either ZS Samus or Ike. I find Samus to be a bit clumsy when she has her suit on, but that's probably just me.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Hypnotoad on June 27, 2008, 11:57:49 am
On Apers' copy, I found I'm enjoying Pit almost as much as Link


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 27, 2008, 01:25:17 pm
Well, they are similar characters.

I've played as Pit in the SSE and he's quite a good character. I'll stick to my mains for multiplayer though.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: NXtreme on June 28, 2008, 07:07:42 am
so far my mains are Metaknight, (Metaknight FTW!) Pit and Pokemon Trainer


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 28, 2008, 07:16:02 am
I was really surprised when I unlocked Captain Facon after beating Classic Mode.

So far I've unlocked:
Captain Falcon
Marth


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Pieisgreat on June 28, 2008, 02:42:32 pm
Okay, I use...
Lucario
MetaKnight
Marth

IMO, Sheik sucks.

Let's hear the Link song again... just kidding

It wasn't originally on "Parody of Time", if anyone can find and record the flash video that would be good


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 29, 2008, 07:47:02 am
A lot of people seem to be using Meta Knight. My first choice is Ike, then Meta Knight for me.

GREAT...... AETHER!


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: OL1V3R on June 29, 2008, 08:47:12 am
Meta Knight is one of my favourite newcomers, but I have started to use Pit more often.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 29, 2008, 09:04:54 am
I'd say Meta Knight is the best of the flying characters.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Plasma Trooper on June 29, 2008, 10:00:05 pm
I used Ike a lot in Brawl. Link in Melee.

My brother used Snake in Brawl.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: DarkAce on June 30, 2008, 10:49:54 am
Snake is hard to use and very tactical, but is one of the best characters around.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on June 30, 2008, 12:06:55 pm
I think Lucario's down air move is quite good, plus he's the only character who I know how to do Meteor Smashes with.

NXtreme thought that Lucario was a clone of Samus.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Pieisgreat on July 02, 2008, 03:18:37 pm
Lol. ^^ He's my 3rd main. Yes, now MetaKnight is my 2nd. D'you know what that means? I'VE UNLOCKED SONIC! ;D :D :)


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.

I noticed that Ike's Down Air is the same as Link's.

Well I've got all my mains though, so now.

GREAT AETHER!
Know my Power
Watch the Power of Aura
It's Showtime!


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Ratiqu on July 03, 2008, 10:03:57 am
Ike's down is close, but it's different. Ike swings his sword below him, but Link holds it there, so you have to time Ike's a lot better.

I think Ike is considered a noob choice overall, but he's actually one of the better choices once you get good at dodging and stuff.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 03, 2008, 12:33:58 pm
I got the hang of dodging in Melee, but I don't always use Ike.

I've changed my 4th main from Lucario to Lucas.

So now it's...
PK... STAAAAAAAAAARSTOOOOOOOOOOORM! is Lucas. Woot!


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 11, 2008, 03:48:16 pm
I'm maining Toon Link a few times as well.

His down air move is really useful against bosses.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Kiroshima on July 15, 2008, 05:37:10 pm
I main Lucas for Boss Battles mode, I even beat Intense using him.  His multi hit attacks (air) are incredibly powerful, and he has nice projectile moves.  Also, HE CAN HEAL.  Master Hand shoots Energy type attacks with his "gun" form, and Duon has energy attacks too (not the head laser one though).

I main G&W 8).  And Ike, Olimar, Marth.  Thing is, I play as a lot of characters so I can learn their moves, and just because they are all so fun to play as.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 16, 2008, 11:54:41 am
Meta Knight is probably the best newcomer if you can master him. My brother won a few matches as Meta Knight today.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Ratiqu on July 16, 2008, 02:59:50 pm
I have yet to encounter anyone who mains with any of the Mario characters. Or the pokemon trainer.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 17, 2008, 04:04:44 am
NXtreme uses the Pokemon Trainer occasionally, but for him, it's mainly Meta Knight and Sonic.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: DarkAce on July 18, 2008, 05:07:54 am
I'm currently maining Marth by far, then Kirby & G&W.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Ratiqu on July 18, 2008, 12:50:44 pm
I'm not really maining anybody right now, actually....My horizons are broadening from Ike to Lucario and Link.

By the way, I need you guys to give me an opinion here. Who's better, Link or Toon Link?


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 18, 2008, 04:16:48 pm
Depends. Toon Link is better for boss battles because of his knockback on his down air, but Link is more powerful. It's all down to taste really.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Kiroshima on July 18, 2008, 10:22:43 pm
Toon Link's specials are more harassment style and speed focused than Link, he also flies higher with his spin attack in the air.  He is also much weaker in damage, and has HORRIBLE reach for a weapon wielder.

Link is more or less the opposite, stronger, slower, and his abilities are useful stand-alone or linking to a combo of some kind.

The question is, what style do you play?  Then you will know who is better for you.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Hypnotoad on July 19, 2008, 07:04:54 am
I'm using both lately

Toon Link has faster combos, though, and jumps higher

He'd be better if he coundn't be swatted away so easily

I'd say that with skill, they're about the same

He should be cel-shaded, though


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 19, 2008, 07:42:22 am
I agree with you that he should be cel-shaded but the designers probably thought that this would seem out of place.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Pieisgreat on July 20, 2008, 07:53:51 am
I main (In order)
Sonic
Wolf
MetaKnight
Toon Link
Lucario

Gone is Lucas. IMO, his only good move is PK Thunder, so away he goes.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Hypnotoad on July 20, 2008, 08:26:44 am

He has a point there.


Anyway, I decided I'm going to main Lucario, so, any tips, people?


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Kiroshima on July 20, 2008, 02:37:34 pm
All his moves get stronger as his damage increases.  However, watch out for his light weight, he gets knocked back a bit.  Take advantage of his Double Team, since it benefits from the damage boost.  His smash attacks have a bit of a delay, but he isn't bad.  He's pretty balanced.


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: Plasma Trooper on July 20, 2008, 10:30:54 pm
Kirby, Meta Knight and King Dedede.

See a pattern there?


Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.

Title: Re: The "who do you main" thread.
Post by: TheAPERSON on July 21, 2008, 03:16:25 am
Well, not until now.

Meta Knight is probably the best of the Kriby characters. Better recovery than Kirby or King Dedede thanks to Shuttle Loop, some incredibly quick attacks and the ability to prevent screen re-entry.

We need to set up some games, and see our mains in action!  My summer break is almost over, and since my time difference is so great, I only have this week really.  I can only play with you guys in the mornings T_T.

That's not what I mean.  It's all nice and stuff that we have each other's friend codes, but because of schedules, real life, school, and time zones, we have to organize a game, not just go check if someone is online. 

We have actually set up the match.

Perhaps you should settle this in PM's. This is a thread for discussing your Smash Bros. mains, not to negociate on how much you'll buy a game for.
