Yeah the competitive smash 64 scene is small compared to say Melee but it's plucky and tons of fun to watch. The only negative in my opinion is that the only legal stage right now is Dream land but that's not too big of a deal considering how great that stage is. I've thought about getting into it on a local level myselfGrizzmeister wrote:It isn't Ocarina or Time, Super Mario 64 or Mario Kart 64 that keeps the N64 relevant to this day. Instead it's a wacky little fighting game that's best enjoyed on the actual Nintendo 64 hardware, as opposed to emulation, to minimize input lag during competitive matches.
If you've never seen Super Smash Bros. 64 played competitively, I strongly suggest watching some YouTube videos of Isai. In his capable hands Smash 64 becomes more than just a video game and is elevated to nothing less than art.
I think that's where I stopped enjoying the games myself.Grizzmeister wrote:I'd never want to be a pro Super Smash Bros. player as that would drain all of the fun out of it for me. Me and my friends prefer to play on a purely casual basis.
Like the kids say, "pictures or it didn't happen".D.J Cat wrote:As a matter of fact, some N64 multi-player and a BBQ may just happen in the next day or 2 ??
