I bought mine at Target for $14 each compared to Eb games which is $18 each, so the price isn't too bad considering some of the amiibo are short in supply and prices will inflate knowing Nintendo.
Can't wait to try out 8-player smash with friends in the holidays though.
Nice! Which amiibo(s) did u get?

I got Marth (apparently pretty rare), Donkey Kong and Mario on Launch. Then I got Yoshi and Kirby yesterday.
I am also looking at some from the wave released next week, like Captain Falcon. Also got 3 GameCube controllers along the way. As you can see, the launch of Smash Bros along with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have brutally attacked my wallet. :bomb:

I have only just begun training with Mario to start with. The customisation is good to give an unique flavour to the character, whether fast or slow. They also learn from their mistakes and develop differently according to your playing style. So I think they do the job pretty well.

Haha you did well for someone that hasn't played much 64, I grew up on that game. It's a shame we couldn't get melee working, that's my personal favourite atm.

I'm pretty average at brawl, but the fundamentals carry across games I guess.

It appears the best tactic against Little Mac is "wait for him to inveitably kill himself or throw him off the edge"

Surprisingly effective lol

Fave: Melee and smash wii u (i like the actual gameplay in melee better but the extra stuff in the new one is so much fun for parties)
Characters: I didn't play too much of smash 64 if i had to choose probs pikachu but i didn't really have a main. In melee i loved playing as samus, brawl it was wolf and new smash it's link and zero suit. But I'm honestly not fussed and when playing with friends more often than not I would just elect "random".
Style: Never been big on shielding so i try to play either aggressively or with hit and run tactics. Don't really have any tricks per se except that my aerial game is probs stronger than my ground game a lot of the time (obvs dependent on the character lol) so I try to take the fight there
Hate to fight: i get mad every time mario grabs me lol. Apart from that i don't really hate fighting any character, one of the things i love about smash is the sheer variety in play styles that keeps things interesting.

^ nice :).

For me:

My favourite game is melee, I think the balance between offense/defense, grounded play/aerial play, edgeguarding/recovering etc is pretty much spot-on. It makes for a really fast paced exciting game with quite a bit of depth. The movement in that game is super crisp too, which is why there is such scope for different styles of play. I also play quite a bit of project m, and smash 64 is the game I grew up on.

64 chars: Literally everyone. Pikachu being my best.

Melee chars: I play all the characters, but at tournament level my main is jiggs and my secondaries are sheik and fox. I have a few other characters up my sleeve that aren't much worse though, which I pull out for specific matchups / players. (Peach to kill the ice climbers in a brainless way, Falco to go aggro on players that are smart but not good at dealing with pressure, etc)

PM chars: Main link, but I dabble in a lot of characters, and its also pretty easy to transition the skills from playing the melee version of a character to the PM version. (For the good melee characters anyway, they aren't changed too much.)

64 Style: There isn't that much scope for style in 64 lol, I just play patiently, spacing out my opponent till I get an opening. After a single hit I try and continue the combo for as long as I can, hopefully till death.

Melee Style: Jiggs gets outmatched by some characters in the neutral game, but has a lot of tricks. The main idea is to play campy and safe, poking with backairs until your opponent makes a mistake you can punish. Setups for rest (down b) are super important, and some are quite easy. I pay a lot of attention to teching/rolling habits and the way an opponent recovers, because a single read with Jiggs can change a match. Sheik is kind of similar, really good at edgeguarding, with a solid combo game. She/he is faster than Jiggs on ground so can punish certain things better. Fox/Falco are just super fun to play, I am way more aggressive with them.

PM style: Links projectile game is sick. He can put a ton of pressure on opponents who can't powershield consistently. Favourite tricks include jab jab grab and z-air->d-air.

Who I hate to fight in melee: A good ice climbers player lol. Thankfully peach exists. A good fox/falco is harder to fight, but more fun, because jiggs can punish their mistakes REALLY hard. I love fighting aggressive characters, because matchups like puff dittos and puff-peach are really boring lol.
