    Haha, I fucking hate this joke because it's so funny.

    I need to get out more because I actually know what his means -___-.
    4/5 for you know…..being 4 worthy. I think people need to get more creative with the posters though. Haha.Good nonetheless though.

    It's sad because I get it. -_-;

  5. Miketuu on March 8th, 2009 5:08 am

    The movie or the brawl stage? otherwise I don't get it

    Never before have I felt like such a tourney fag…

  7. WolvenGlory on March 8th, 2009 5:47 am

    Dr. Mario would be a shoo-in for this.

  8. poonstev on March 8th, 2009 5:57 am

    I sort of get it. 3/5 for being such a thinker!

  9. Lekonua on March 8th, 2009 7:09 am

    Ah, tournaments. Sucking the fun out of gaming since…whenever.

    Enough with Left for Dead already. At least Wolf was delegated to every Wednesday and now I'm not so sick of him.

    Don't let the tank get the smash ball!

    Pills only? Watch out for Louis!

    Ok, for those who don't get it, the tournament-play community for smash brothers is often made fun of because of their limited rules — no items (in Brawl, this includes smash balls), limited levels to choose from, and a few other things. Back in Melee, the most popular characters (because they were found to be most effective in tournament) were the fast ones, who became incredibly powerful using a technique called "wavedashing" (it let them move even faster, which is the holy grail of fighting games). That meant Fox, Marth, etc. Levels were limited to increase fairness and reduce/eliminate randomness and major advantages due to level choice for certain characters — the epitome of simple, of course, was the flat level Final Destination. Someone came up with the phrase "No items, Fox only, Final Destination", and it quickly became a meme that quickly and efficiently poked fun at the competitive scene ("tourneyfags", if you're from 4chan). These day's it's Meta Knight and Snake, really (wavedashing doesn't exist/"don exits" in Brawl, so it really shuffles the tier list to some degree), as far as characters go… but it's still primarily "fair" levels that get chosen for the first round of a match (FD, Battlefield, Smashville, and depending on where you are potentially Yoshi's Story, Norfair interestingly enough, or a couple other places… it's usually 5 stages though). The "expanded" list (used for second and third round "counter-picking") allows some (but not all) of the crazier levels, probably topping off at Rainbow Cruise… so it's not /just/ FD that gets play, but you can see where the stereotype comes from. It's all done in the name of fairness, because when thousands of dollars go to first place, and a lot less go to second place, you don't want a randomly-produced smash ball, or beam sword, or level hazard deciding the last round of the grand finals.

    And yeah, I'm a tourneyfag.

    This picture reminds me of how much I dislike Tourneyfags. 3/5.

    Then watch this humourous video-based explanation!

    Ok, so I had to read some explanations about this one. Now I get it but I find a fail in the fact that its about no weapons, and the characters in fact, have their weapons instead of pills.
    Don't waste L4D with jokes this bad.

  18. Sinister Minister on March 8th, 2009 10:39 pm

    It isn't bad. You're just incredibly picky.

  19. WolvenGlory on March 8th, 2009 11:25 pm

    I just don't feel like reading it. :P

  20. KingofRetards on March 9th, 2009 5:13 am

    Nice crossover… but JESUS FUCKING CHRIST why are there so many of these crossovers with Left 4 Dead?

  21. KingofRetards on March 9th, 2009 11:44 pm

    Good point.
