For those who never grew up with a Wii or Gamecube, or just because they happened to be playing something else, Smash Ultimate will be their first proper introduction to the Smash series. And while the platform fighter looks like total chaos, there's a ton of little fundamentals you need to know.

The fight between Leonardo "MkLeo" Lopez Perez and Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios in the 2GG Championship final was some of the highest-level Smash 4 I've ever seen, with incredibly clean play and perceptive reads and adaptions.
This weekend's 2GG Championship was created to be a capstone tournament for the Super Smash Bros. For Wii U scene. It was a fitting end to have two of its biggest titans clash in the grand finals.
For 13 minutes, Gonzalo "Zero" Barrios' face barely moved. It was the Grand Finals match of a Super Smash Bros. Wii U tournament, and Barrios, the best Smash player in the world, was squaring off against a formidable opponent. A few feet away, Barrios' bodyguard kept a lookout for a man who'd threatened to be there, in wait, with a gun aimed at the champion gamer.
At Saturday's 2GGC: Genesis Saga tournament for Smash Wii U, accomplished Diddy Kong player Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios appeared to stroll through the winner's bracket with ease, eventually taking the grand finals three games to one against challenger Komorikiri's Cloud Strife. So naturally he was awarded a crap-ton of noodles in addition to his nearly $US3500 ($4667) prize winnings.
Video: Here's Zero, commenting on the end of his amazing Smash Bros. streak. He sounds pretty happy, actually: his dream was always to make Smash 4 grow bigger. He helps build the scene even by losing, because it makes for a great storyline!
Last weekend, things didn't look so great for Smash Bros.' top player, Gonzalo "Zer0" Barrios. For a moment, it seemed like reigning champ might actually lose a tournament.
Gonzalo "Zero" Barrios is on a hot streak. Since November 2014, he's come in first for every Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament he's participated in. That makes a whopping 34 consecutive first place wins for the 1v1 category. It's absurd.
Diddy Kong has become the most divisive character in the new Super Smash Bros. ever since competitive players picked up on the primate's formidable fighting strength. His reign as the fighter to beat sparked a newly heated debate this week when one pro Smasher blamed the game's community for the whole Diddy upset.
Japanese horror game series Fatal Frame is one of my personal favourites. So despite disliking horror movies in general, I went to see the new Fatal Frame live-action theatrical film. And while never scream-inducingly scary, its amazing atmosphere makes it one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen.
