Sorry to get off topic, but that's some awesome stuff you got there. You made that whole space animation? That's pretty sweet. I'm a COMPLETE noob when it comes to editing/making pictures. So to me, thats cool.


The scene and stuff yes. I didn't make an animation out of it... yet. The models, the textures, and etc. were all made by me.

Well, I used to fit squarely in the "Athletic Category." I played football, baseball, & basketball as well as swim, lift weights, and run cross-country. But then, I became a cheerleader and cheered for a little while in college. My other hobby as a teenager was creative dating (fun group dates with unique/creative themes, usually for less than $5). I used NERF guns on these dates a lot, but eventually I got married and busy with life.

Now, my other hobby is performing illusions. I do mostly close-up magic, but I've also had a few paid stage shows. I also do a lot of street magic. I primarily do card work (but probably nothing like anything you've ever seen before). On a side note, I've convinced my psychology professors that I'm "tapping into the subconscious" to do certain things (like have somebody shuffle a deck of cards and then randomly deal the cards into two piles, face down, and all the reds end up in one pile and all the blacks end up in another).

I play a LOT of sports: Hockey, tennis, badminton, soccer, swimming (non competitive) National level archery, snowboarding, skiing. I listen to music, mostly 80-90's rock such as Guns n Roses, Finger 11, Hendrix (a bit earlier), the Clash, U2 etc. I have been playing the violin for 11 years, so I play that a lot. I do homework and play xbox 360. That sums up my life.

I modify toy guns as a hobby. You know, those things called Nerf guns? Yeah.

Besides that, I'm at Hopkins, which is killing me, along with the rest of my hobbies. Combined with trying to keep up with the boards here, my time is rather limited. Generally they involve:

-Smash Brothers Brawl (yeah, I play)
-Piano
-Futile attempts to pick up the guitar
-Tennis, once I have more time
-Deal Shopping (I've actually had somebody's mom call me looking for a deal on a hard drive)
-Collecting random weapons, including knives, swords, guns (soon), etc.

-I dabble in MTG

I agree, Wolf is probably the cheapest character there, with Zelda being tied or a close second. Then again, that's just my opinion.

A real character, eh? I play Bowser to have fun, with my main characters being Meta Knight and Pikachu (both which are somewhat cheap, which is why I've taken to playing Bowser).

CS, I in theory shouldn't have time to play video games, but I make time. Often at the expense of my organic chemistry grade. Because quite frankly, it's the only thing people do around here (besides drink, which I don't do) to de-stress.

And props on the anon vs. Scientology thing. Those videos/responses always are interesting.

I play with legos, Super Smash Bros (N64 For the Win!), Smash Bros Brawl, and look at random stuff on the interweb.

Wolf Is cheap. His F-smash had insane range, his up-smash and his down smash are extremely quick. The only thing that doesn't make him broken is his recovery.

I play Kirby. I'm currently working on my air game. It's kind of sad that I'm good with Kirby, but suck in the air... I hate melee because Kirby got extremely weakened.

My other 2 characters are Marth and Ike. Fire Emblem For The Win!

P.S. Mr. Nerf, you shouldn't make bold claims like that. Beat everyone, then say it.

well, that's kinda impossible due to nintendo's "play-safe" friend code system. And the random play feels like playing against the a.i. and not humans, along with being laggy too often.

Well if we are speaking cheapness, no one beats DK on Flat Zone 2. Use his grab move and then just walk of the screen.
Sooooooooooooo gay. And the best move in the game is still Capt. Falcons taunt.
Funny Robert Quote!

Wow, everybody but Toon link sucks.....

Marth is Legend.
EDIT: DK sucks otherwise. Seriously, I don't care if you thinks he's good, because he isn't.
