Now that I’m playing Super Smash Bros. like crazy again, I’m facing the fact that my Link is a liiiittle rusty. Like, I need to go in for Tetanus shots kind of rusty.
When Brawl came out, I was in full on Metal Gear Solid hype mode. I wasn’t on the hype train, I was the train. The Metal Gear Solid Essentials Collection released just 10 days after Brawl, and that was a huge turning point. It led to me beating MGS 1, 2 and 3 for the first time, and cemented my decision to drop Link…and use Snake as my new Smash Bros. main.
So now, 6 years later, I come back to Link with hat in hand, and tail between my legs. I won’t deny that I pined for Snake’s announcement, or that I won’t return to him should Sakurai grant my wish, but until then I hope Link and I can Smash bros…together.
