A poem I wrote for one of my classes…
Once the game begins
Your fate is already sealed.
It doesn’t matter which character
You choose; I know them all.
No strategy is unfamiliar,
There are no tactics that will save you.
The match commences,
I take the lead.
Start with teasing you,
Fluttering to avoid your noble attempts.
Once in a while, I sneak in an attack;
This is to spark your aggravation.
You accidentally string together a combo,
A grin stretches across your face.
A couple thumps later and you’re on top,
You love the feeling of power.
Now you’re in the lead,
Despite your lack of experience.
You knock me off the stage,
A cry of triumph escapes your pursed lips.
It is all an orchestrated illusion;
I have never been in danger of losing.
I leap back towards the stage,
And knock you onto your back.
I am done toying with you;
Now it is time for your demise.
Dish deep wallops that stun you,
Your grin fades away.
Now I start to pound you mercilessly,
Whipping your contorted body across the stage.
I go for the K.O.
My strike is furiously relentless.
Your lips quiver and your legs tremble;
You did not expect such intensity.
You mouth gapes and makes a muffled moan.
With widened eyes, you concede defeat.
But the game is not over, my dear,
You still have a couple of lives left!
You frown in displeasure,
But you do not put down the controller.
I lather, rinse, and repeat with fresh maneuvers,
Until you are incapable of playing.
You look frustrated
From being foraged so ferociously.
I smile at your flushed face,
For I foresaw your finished future.
You are sensitive and your exhausted body shakes,
Yet you willingly marvel at my super smash skills.
Should I post my Super Smash Bros. movesets?
When I was young (not really that young, but younger than my current age), I used to make Super Smash Bros. movesets for characters not owned by Nintendo. When I say “move-sets”, I don’t mean just their potential special moves, I mean every.single.possible.move. Their A tilts, smash attacks, jump attacks, throws, and sometimes even their recovery moves (like when a character attacks from the ground, or is climbing up an edge). I would write and describe their attacks in fine detail, and I would use my imagination to play those moves out.
I created movesets for popular video game characters such as Travis Touchdown, 3 for Jak and Daxter (his light and dark side had separate moves), 3 for Banjo-Kazooie (1 as them together, and then them separated), Leon S. Kennedy, Mr. Mime, Togepi, and others.
I also dipped into the anime realm, and made movesets for characters from Naruto, Samurai Champloo, Samurai Seven and Fooly Cooly. And, on occasion, I would create characters from scratch and give them some sweet moves.
I’m debating whether or not I should post some of the movesets on my blog. I’d like the interwebz to see how super cool and creative and smart and g-status I am, but I fear that my ideas will be either stolen or borrowed from.
Either that, or Nintendo will grab ‘em and use them and I’ll get NOTHING. >:l
