The Saturday Morning Stream Plays Super Smash Bros. 3DS [All Done]

Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS is out in Japan. So while you wait anxiously for the upcoming western release, join me as I once again steal the Saturday Morning Stream from Fahey’s cold dead hands to bring you Japanese import gaming action.

Now keep in mind two things as you watch. While I played a ton of the original Smash Bros. on the N64 and a fair amount of Melee on the GameCube back in the day, I haven’t really played any Smash Bros. in more than eight years. Also, it is 11 at night here in Japan, and I think it’s safe to say that my gaming skills might not be as stellar as I would like.

Still, we’re going to have a lot of fun trying out all the new characters and exploring all the game has to offer. And if we are lucky, a wild Fahey may even appear in the chat to keep us all company.

Note: We're experiencing some technical difficulties. They should be resolved shortly.

Update: Looks clear now!

Update #2: Stream is all done but it has been collected (minus most of the technical hicups below)

Anyone else find the circle pad REALLY uncomfortable to play a fighting game with? It might just be because of the way I have to hold it because of how my thumb bends, but I have to use the very tip of my thumb and press down HARD. If I use the pad of my thumb, it constantly slides off (my thumb eventually bends very far backwards, so using the pad means it eventually slides up to the first joint.) 3 or 4 games on the demo yesterday, and my thumb was painfully sore and my circle pad was like, stuck to the 3DS case. I ended up having to use some isopropyl alcohol and an index card to slide under it and pry it upwards.
