  1. I'll be at SmashCon to watch Melee finals this Sunday, and I also just registered for MAGFest in January.

    Anybody else going to either of these?

    Any other nerd cons y'all like to attend?

  7. Oh! I have played this. Very pretty and fun game :)
    I actually don't really play a lot of games, but I've been competing in melee tournaments since 2009.

    What about yourself?

  8. Well I am the mom of a youtuber, so well versed in cons and twitch streaming! Tried melee a few times, very stressful!

  9. Haha how cool :) love seeing the crossover between gym and gaming worlds!
  10. No gaming here, but we’ve been to several ComicCons...HUGE fans of a few shows.
  11. I went to genesis a couple years ago, when I was living in San Jose. Also I've been playing in the weekly wednesday night melee tournies at Xanadu for the last month or two -- still haven't made it far enough in to the bracket to play a game on stream.

    Right now I'm gearing up for MAGFest; I'm going to be cosplaying as Ken Masters, and I've been doing hard core conditioning for the last couple months to try to get a visible six-pack for it.

  17. wow, I'd never heard of Jerry before, but his Fox is super good. looks like a tough match :p
    Cool that you play puff, my roommate plays puff and it's my favorite matchup haha.
  18. Jerry ended up winning the tournament

    I don't normally play Puff. I mained Doc for years, then once I started going to tourneys I realized I need a higher-tier main. Lately I've mostly been playing Marth and Falcon, but this week my Puff felt really strong in friendlies so I decided to try her out in tournament.

    Probably gonna start practicing more with her.
