I have this CD from back when Nintendo Power was a thing and every time "Fire Emblem" comes up on my iPod, no matter how hard I try, I can always catch whoever it is coughing right at the beginning when the music hasn't swelled up yet and you can hear it clear as clicking day.

Sent this immediately to friends with whom I spent an entire summer playing Melee. Dibs on Kirby.

Samus for-the-not-win. Basically I'd just go to the edge of the fray charge up my blaster shot and lob shots across the map for giggles and kills. It was a helluva way to piss off the serious players who took things too serious, make it fun for the serious players who were good sports, and have a dang good time myself as a mediocre player at best.

Good memories.

Fountain of Dreams was probably my favorite song for a couple of years. Lovely stuff, and listening to it is just making me more hyped for the next smash game coming out this summer/fall. Megaman vs Wii Fit Yoga Girl, it's the match everyone's always wanted.
