Super Smash Brothers: Brawl

I spent most of today trying to collect all the stickers in brawl. Sort of. See, since I first got the game, I had been trying to beat all those unlockable areas without using a helping hammer. I've had everyone of of these challenges beaten within the first year... all except the "collect all stickers" one. That one has been haunting me forever. Yes, I've done the sticker factory custom stages, focused on getting stickers in multiplayer and single player matches whenever they are available, and even done the coin launcher over and over from 9999 coins to 0 constantly and I'm still missing 2. Originally, I had 4 stickers missing, but earlier in the year I somehow encountered ONE of the missing ones during classic mode run, and the other one my friend randomly got in the coin launcher about a week ago. It's freaking annoying.

While I wait for the last two elusive stickers, I play Boss battles and classic mode on intense to see if I can beat those modes without continues with all the characters. I got a couple characters through classic and only one through Boss Battles. Unfortunately, I fucking choked with Donkey Kong on the last boss of the run... He had one hit left and I just couldn't move fast enough out of the way from the boss's attack and died. Goddamn that sucked. I know Donkey Kong can do it at least, just need some more patience... I suppose.

Other than that, I haven't been playing Brawl as much as I used to. I once had to play the game at least once a day, then that turned into a week. I even used to go over a friend's house to play a weekly brawl night which was a lot of fun to do. Now that hardly happens, and none of my friends like to play brawl anymore (or at least when I want/am able to). No, this isn't going to turn into a brawl friendcode exchange.

I just am such a perfectionist when it comes to games, I have to try so many different ways to beat them and get nearly everything. Some exceptions are like pokemon, where the breeding and EV stats and what not drive me too nutty to do, or the stupid Battle Frontier challenges. I don't have the patience for them, plus feel my time is better spent elsewhere. Hopefully, I'll get those last two fucking stickers sooner rather than later... but I do know even if I do, I'll still be playing to get intense w/o continues on boss battles, classic and all star mode.

And with that I leave you with a smash bros related comic:

  2. That comic. I hate when that happens when I kill someone then I die, though I like it when the situation is reversed :D

    Unlike you, I don't normally aim to 100% all the games. Finding 800 little things, then realize you are missing 2. GAH

  5. I'm also a super perfectionist in games. It's actually kind of borderline-OCD...not quite, but close. I always have to fully finish everything in a game before I'll move on. VERY rarely I make an exception.

    Sadly, I've never played Brawl, though I have played Melee and 64, both of which were amazingly fun.
