Installation Instructions

You might just be able to pop these straight onto a SD card, I don’t know. The game saves it in the following directory on my card:

private > wii > app > RSBP > st

If you already have custom maps on your SD card just chuck them in that directory.

It’s strange because I was just daydreaming about what would happen if Pit, Link and Ike brawled on the Skyworld level, who would be the winner. And I decided it would probably go to Sudden Death and then Pit would take out Link, and Ike would take out Pit. So it would be 1. Ike, 2. Pit, 3.Link.

link-ike-pit-trophies1

Arright, so I put them all under CPU control at level 9 (how is it that CPUs play so badly at level 9 even yet they still kick my butt?) and you’ll never guess, but it did actually in fact go to Sudden Death, at 0 all. Pit was playing absolutely hopelessly I must say, only he did get the Final Smash which is what saved him from utterly losing. But the strangest thing was, in sudden death, Pit did actually take Link out straight away, just like I imagined, and he nearly took out Ike but Ike did actually get him in the end.

It is absolutely strange the way it worked out completely exactly the way I imagined it would.

Really, I think I play this game too much.

Pit’s Revenge Part Deux

12 January 2009 at 23:00 (Kid Icarus, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness) (, , , , , )

(Part One is here)

Pit re-read the missive he’d received two days ago.

FAO Kid Icky
Our last battle was unreliable and unfair. The air in Skyworld is too thin and how do you expect me to fight when I am nearly fainting from lack of oxygen? I demand a rematch at a neutral location. I will meet you on Tuesday at Space Station 0 at exactly 10h00. If you don’t turn up I will assume you forfeit and I shall be the victor.
– Ike
PS I fight for my friends

pit-r-tossed1

Pit crumpled up the letter and tossed it over his shoulder. ‘Ha!’

Kid Liquorice tapped her feet impatiently. ‘And once you’ve finished your battle, you will be good friends again, won’t you, because I want to invite him to our house for tea. Oh look, he’s coming!’ She sighed. ‘He’s soooo handsome…’

pit-r-kikisquee

‘We didn’t come here to admire the view!’ Pit snapped.

‘Didn’t we? I did.’ Read the rest of this entry »

Pit’s Special Moves

pit-wakeuptraining

Let’s have a basic look at Pit’s special moves. I’m using the Wiimote + Nunchuk scheme to describe his moves here.

Standard Special – Palutena’s Arrows

These are Pit’s ethereal arrows and in my opinion are the best projectiles in SSB:Brawl due to their speed and versatility. It is especially useful when Read the rest of this entry »

Back to Level 6… and sinking fast

1 November 2008 at 19:45 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , , )

I really am so totally sucky at Smash Bros now 😥 And I was kickin’ butt at level 8. Now I can barely hold my own against level 6 CPUs. Wanna have a good laugh at how crap I am? Here you are!

Here’s me at Level 6. I think I actually won this brawl but you can see how unbelievably hopeless I am that even level 6 CPUs are giving me trouble. By the way, this is not a movie file. Currently there’s no way to convert replay files to avis or whatnot, because the Wii saves your controller input, rather than a straight video file. So you have to have SSB:Brawl first, then load this bin file onto an SD card and watch it on your Wii. Or you might be able to do it with emulators, I don’t know.

I so totally suck.

Pit’s Revenge – Part One

29 October 2008 at 18:44 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness, Screenshots) (, , , )

A short non-story. Just for the lulz :mrgreen:

Pit suffers Great Aether
Ike unleashes Great Aether on Pit.
‘No! Stopicus!!!!!!!!’


Pit returns to Skyworld to lick his wounds.
‘You’ll pay for this, you rotten eggplanticus!!!!’
Kid Liquorice informs him that Ike is on his way to Skyworld to settle the matter, so Pit spends a bit of time practising his attacks.


‘Wowicus!! That is one cool flower!!’

4B Pencils, Mannikins and Level 4

28 October 2008 at 16:33 (Artwork, Kid Icarus, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness) (, , , , , )

I’ve become so utterly useless at Smash Bros lately… I’m losing to level 6 CPUs even. Not even my special nunchuk of luck is helping… hmmm… I guess my heart eyes are just getting too big!!

My trusty 3B pencil that I’ve had since I was 17 is getting very small, so I was on a mission to buy a few replacements. Can you believe it? No one seems to sell 3B pencils on their own anymore. They had packs of pencils from B-9B – yeah, great – what do I want with all those? But no 3Bs on their own. So I had to get 2 4Bs and a 2B. Well, maybe I’ll prefer the 4B, and who knows? There used to be a really good art shop on Muswell Hill, just where the 144 stops. I used to get my art supplies from there – including my faithful 3B pencil – but it changed a few years back into a make-up shop.

So you see I am making some progress on my Kid Liquorice Sky World Story, but I am having difficulties at the moment with some sheep. I can draw sheep okay, that’s not a problem, it’s a lot easier than I expected. But I am having problems with this particular picture in terms of the composition and perspective. The depth, it always looks wrong. I haven’t got very far with this picture and getting Callimachus’s pose right is also proving a bit tricky.

I really want to get a mannikin and they did in fact have one in Smith’s (despite the fact that they had hardly anything else) for £11.99 which is not bad, so I might get one from there next time I go. But first I’m going to look on the interwebz because Smith’s is very expensive.

I had an interesting conversation with Agent T the other day.
Agent T: You look like someone I know.
Me: Who?
Agent T: [whispering]Kid Liquorice

Agent T FTW!!!

Silver Arrows’s Nunchuk o’ Luck

22 October 2008 at 22:42 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , , )

I’ve started playing Smash Bros with the nunchuk now and – wow – what a difference! I can actually do Pit’s glide move now. Very funky! Grabs are also a lot easier. Smash attacks took a bit of getting used to but now I’ve got the hang of it I’m on a roll!!

Also, we’ve been trying to do the 100 man brawl for a long time, I don’t know how many times we’ve attempted it, at least 30 I’d say. The most we got was 99 and then I fell off. (Usually though (9/10 times) it’d be my sis who fell off cos she plays as Ike and Ike’s recovery is the biggest load of rubbish I’ve ever seen).That was, of course, until I started using the amazing
nunchuk of luck
and first go, we got all 100 before we even realised it!

That is one lucky nunchuk.

We also got a record of 128 in Endless brawl! Spiffing, eh?

Now even more impressive – hold your breath – I have been able to take on 2 CPUs at LEVEL 8!! Yes, level 8!!! I’ve also unlocked Toon Link, he was a pain in the butt, but here is the strange thing. Smash Wiki says:

Complete Classic Mode with Link after beating the Subspace Emissary or find and defeat him in a secret room in “The Forest” after completing Subspace Emissary. Some people have reported not being able to unlock Toon Link in any way after unlocking Luigi.

Link and Toon Link

We haven’t even completed the Subspace Emissary yet. We got stuck on The Cave (25%) and had to get our big sis to play it for us, but we didn’t do any levels after that. So how did I unlock Toon Link if the only way to get him is to finish Subspace???

Oh wait, hang on, I get it now. You can either get him that way, or by playing 400 brawls. I see, you don’t need to do both. Crumbs! All righticus, all we’ve got left now is Wolf.

In happier news… Wait, lemme start that again. One day in Rabid Fangirl Land, Silver Arrows purchased a cool twin pack of 2GB SD cards for only £7.99 pounds!! AND I have convinced sis not to delete my snapshots (she had to agree because she has Ike pics now!!). Which means… you know what it means don’t you? It means the rabid fangirl is going to fill and fill and fill this blog with Pit pictures until she’s sick! And I never will be. Rabid fangirls FTW!!!

Smash Bros Brawl Theme Lyrics

21 October 2008 at 22:36 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, )

Yes! It’s the Brawl main theme. Well of course I had to post it, what kind of fangirl would I be if I didn’t? I’ve just posted the official translation here. If you want the literal translation, it’s ici. Agent T particularly likes the soprano bit. He collapsed into hysterics when he heard it and got me into trouble.

Copyright Nintendo / HAL Laboratory, Inc.

Audi famam illius.
Solus in hostes ruit
et patriam servavit.

Audi famam illius.
Cucurrit quaeque
tetigit destruens.

Audi famam illius.
Audi famam illius.

Spes omnibus, mihi quoque.
Terror omnibus, mihi quoque.

Ille
iuxta me.

Ille iuxta me.
Socii sunt mihi.
qui olim viri fortes
rivalesque erant.

Saeve certando
pugnandoque
splendor crescit.

I’ve heard legends of that person
How he plunged into enemy territory
How he saved his homeland

I’ve heard legends of that person
How he travelled the breadth of the land reducing all he touched to rubble.

I’ve heard legends of that person
I’ve heard legends of that person

Revered by many — I, too, revere him
Feared by many — I, too, fear him

Now that person
Stands at my side

Now that person stands at my side
Now my friends are with me
Some of them were once heroes
Some, my mortal enemies

And as we face each other in battle, locked in combat
We shine ever brighter

I don’t get the reducing all he touched to rubble bit???? Pit didn’t turn anything to rubble.

ETA: Someone reminded me about the Skyworld level platforms crumbling, so you see, I was right all along, they are singing about Pit

Woohoo! Level Four!

19 July 2008 at 20:42 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , , )

Ha ha ha! I can win a brawl against 3 CPUs all at level 4 each now. Isn’t that great?

pit

All righticus! You can stop laughing now. I may have mentioned before – or not – I’m not what you’d call a gamer. Games for me are not a way of life. I’m not like those people I played Unreal Tournament against once, you could tell they spent months training, the same way you’d train for a sport. I play games because they are entertaining, or interesting, or because I have an unhealthy fascination with one of the characters.

Don’t worry, it’ll pass.

I have a few good in-game shots of Pit in black – my fave colour for wearing and he looks nice in black too – but no SD card 😦 I could ask sis I suppose.

Then she’ll say, You want pictures of your Pit? You are SO SAD.

I wish people would stop saying that, like it’s something I don’t already know.

ETA 01/01/09: OMG how could I be getting excited over level 4?? How crap was I?????

Kid Icarus! Kid Icarus! KID ICARUS!!!!

1 July 2008 at 19:31 (Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) (, , , , )

Kid Icarus is easily my favourite character from Captain N – as you can probably tell from my home page banner, although I never got very far in Kid Icarus on the NES. And – Janey Mack! – he is back back BACK!!! I knew it was my lil Kid from the moment I saw him on the cover! *sigh*

Welcome back, Kid! Mega Man woulda been cool in this, I wonder why they didn’t include him, too? And Ryu!! YEEEEEEEEES!!! Ryuuuuuuuu!

If Chun Li was in Brawl, everyone else might as well pack up and go home, because I kick everyone’s butt as Chun Li. I was easily the SSF2 champ at my sixth form.

Ya!

Mind you, that’s not saying much, as most of the kids in my class were rubbish and just button-bashers anyway. Oh man, jokes, during our computing lessons, we just used to play on the SNES instead of working. No wonder I failed module 4 (hardware huzzah!).
