Anyone have any good plans for the weekend?
There are so many new video games that Rachel and I have to try out and play, along with some old favorites from our SNES Classic. With that said, there are definitely some games we’re missing right now, like the Super Smash Bros. series. Can’t wait until a port or a new installment appears on the Switch!
Castle Siege from Fire Emblem series
I’m a sucker for the Fire Emblem franchise, and I really enjoyed playing on the fantasy-inspired Castle Siege map in Smash Bros. With the stage switching the scenery every so often, players need to stay on their toes so they don’t accidentally get lost in the transition.
This was always a fun little stage. Not only do you have to contend with people trying to literally knock you out of the sky, you also have to make sure you don’t fall off of the floating Pokemon balloons.
This is probably the stage that we fight on the most. Just a leveled area that’s a decent size to have a full-out brawl on, especially if you have no items on. The space-like backgrounds always helped the mood as well.
The Temple from the Legend of Zelda series
This was always a favorite stage, especially when we used to play Melee with our non-gamer friends. It was large enough for nooks and crannies to let you hide for a bit of a breather (or figure out the buttons), but also provided the challenge of needing to rack up enough damage on your opponents to send them flying off the stage. The aesthetic was also just tons of fun.
What are your favorite Super Smash Bros. stages? What ones are you hoping will appear in a new Smash installment?
