I haven't played it yet because I've been cracking on Path of Exile, but from watching PR Rog's stream, the 2013 patch seems like its done wonders for SFxT's watchability.

That's good. I was worried that SFxT was gonna be an albetross around the neck of the IPL deal.

I was going to post the Brawl theme but figured to post Melee's since it won and feared Brawl backlash.

YUUUUUUP.

Yoshi and Kirby tracks alone could demolish 99 percent of what's out there.

Not for those reasons but I agree.

Also, Link. I really hope adult Link is completely broke this time around, needs his shine. Despite being on Brawl, toon Link was fun, and young Link was cool enough.

Super arcade had co-owners. The other guy took his cabs, and now Watson the sole owner of SA.

Well, the Smash community rejected their sequel while the Capcom community accepted theirs. If Smash got a competent sequel, you beat your ass Melee is getting dropped.

How does an arcade like that work in the US? Do they have their own card system, entry fee or is it still cash?

His partner got all sand in his pussy at watson and ran away with the arcade machines. Which means a good portion of SA's revenue maker is now gone.
