Things I Like: Bowser (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

This King of Koopas has been in the series since Melee, but Ultimate was the first time I really liked playing as Bowser. He hasn’t drastically changed since the previous games. He’s by far the heaviest fighter which makes him difficult to knock off the stage. And he’s got great power to him. Not manyContinue reading “Things I Like: Bowser (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Hate: Lip’s Stick (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

I’ve hated this item since its origin in Melee. If you’re ever wondered, it’s from Panel De Pon (Tetris Attack in the United States) with a character named Lip. It’s her stick. Thus the name. Since Americans never played it, it would seem like this would be an original item to the series, but it’sContinue reading “Things I Hate: Lip’s Stick (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Ice Climbers (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

The Ice Climbers are back after being left out of Smash 4. While they were never my favorites in Melee or Brawl, I’m glad to see them back. Like usual, they’re about what you’d expect.

Things I Like: Yoshi’s Island Melee Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

This Melee stage is back though it’s never left the series since the Gamecube era. It’s based on a stage in Super Mario World set on Yoshi’s Island, but not based on Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island obviously. While far from my favorite stage, I’ve liked it. The biggest thing to be careful ofContinue reading “Things I Like: Yoshi’s Island Melee Stage (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”

Things I Like: Fire Bar (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)

A rather newer item to the series, this one has been around since Smash 4. It’s from the Mario series, but instead of a “sword” item shape, it’s an obstacle moving in a circular motion, often in Bowser’s castles. Though it is far from my favorite item in the game. Despite the flashy look, theContinue reading “Things I Like: Fire Bar (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)”
