Major League Gaming: Washington DC (2010)

Another exciting stop for MLG starts today and runs all weekend sporting intense Halo 3, Halo Reach, StarCraft 2, World of Warcraft, Tekken, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl matches in Washington DC. It’s going to be a great weekend with some of the best players bumping heads for a chance to be crowned MLG Champions in November! Don’t miss any of the action with the free stream starting today at 5:30 PM ET (4:30 PM CST), and don’t forget you can always upgrade for $10 and get the pausable HD stream. Should be a blast.

Check this page for the main stream and bracket information.

Update: There was some great matches tonight for both Halo 3 and StarCraft 2. Unfortunately I can’t watch everything, so I’m not sure how the other games went. Final stream featured 3 matches between drewbie and SLush. Very exciting micro action between the terran and zerg player (respectively). If you have any time this weekend, I highly recommend checking it out, and if you’re feeling extra fanatical…or generous, you could spend the $10 and get the HD stream. Although beware, the quality, at least on my end, wasn’t that much better for the actual matches (but close-ups of players crying after losses was about 720p). Nice…

Shout Out: Super Smash Bros. Brawl Combo Video

This Friday we have a Brawl combo video for you.

It’s not often that I find a Brawl combo video that actually impresses me. The main reason for that being that the closest things that come to “combos” in Brawl are usually lame, but this video shows that players in Brawl are really starting to gain some skill.

Give it a look. It’s really, really impressive. I bet even those that don’t play Brawl would be wow-ed by some of this stuff.

Watch it here.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tier List #5

A new tier list for the video game Super Smash Bros. Brawl has been finalized just recently. This would make up the fifth version of the tier list for the game. The tier list is as follows:

S: Meta Knight
A: Snake, Diddy Kong, Falco, Wario, Marth, Ice Climbers
B: Olimar, Pikachu, King Dedede, Mr. Game & Watch, Lucario, Zero Suit Samus
C: Toon Link, Kirby, Fox, R.O.B., Pit, Peach, Donkey Kong
D: Luigi, Wolf, (Zelda/Sheik), Sonic, Ike, Sheik, Ness, Pokémon Trainer
E: Yoshi, Lucas, Mario, Bowser
F: Captain Falcon, Samus, Jigglypuff, Link, Zelda
G: Ganondorf

(Information found on smashboards and brawlfriendcodes.com).

For those of you who do not know what a “Tier List” for gaming is, it refers to a list that rates each character in order of their potential to win in tournament settings for gaming. The conditions of this list are also based on a characters “metagame.” Metagame refers to the strategies that are predominant in the current competitive community.

It should be noted that a tier list is not a “Best character to worst character” list. This mean that if you fight the kid down the street who has played the game twice but mains metaknight, the results will be based off of your skill. A really great captain falcon player would most likely win against an extremely cruddy pikachu player.

The tier list hasn’t changed much in terms of metaknight’s placement (since he’ll most likely always be top) but I’m going to give Falco some credit and say that he definitely has potential to take Snake’s place. Some of them Falco players are doing some tight things.

On another note, Olimar (my “main”… i.e. the dude I play as) has jumped two spots since the last version. Olimars are representing. There need to be more Yoshi players, though.

Otherwise, I think this is a pretty solid tier list. I think it will be interesting to see what the next one will look like. I’m thinking only minor differences… kind of like this one (not like the one where Olimar jumped 8 spots).
