Isn’t the internet great?
Let’s ignore what the news recently said about internet forums being places for socially anxious people to talk to strangers from similar situations, and that somehow being a bad thing. Because fuck, that’s actually a good thing! And even for the people who do know social left from right, the internet’s a great way to hang out with folks with similar interests. And it never ceases to amaze how easily it all happens.
Asked for help regarding installing a Smash update on, you guessed it, a Smash forum. Someone was kind enough to help me out, and even continued suggesting possible solutions when even I had nearly given up hope. Managed to get the update working in the end, so now I can play online again, and we decided to play some games against each other.
We actually use similar play-styles for some characters, which was interesting to see. He’s a better at me than the game, but not incredibly so. There’s definitely room for having fun in there, which is exactly what we did. And just like that, I found someone to regularly play Smash with!
Getting my ass kicked by random strangers is fine and all, but having a friendly opponent to spar with is way more fun.
