yes

if you were dumb enough to reserve the game at your local gamestop, there's also a tourney going on the same night. Most stores are selling the game at midnight (not authorized to sell it until 12:01 3/9 actually) but there's a tournament being held at the stores - most of them are starting at 10PM Saturday night (EST as far as I know) You need to get to the Gamestop before 9:30 though to confirm your place in the tourney IIRC.

http://www.gamestop.com/gs/ssbb/tournament/default.asp

Good ol' Kosheh went down to his local Gamestop and managed to scam the details out of the employees regarding the event. Most likely they'll be fired. :D
I'm sure the tourney contestants will be estatic they're fighting Kosheh of Rule 34, because that's the email address I put down on the application. :P

Anyway, if this isn't posted on Smashboards already at least you'll have the upper hand while participating.

Anyway, here's all the dirt I was able to pick up.

-On the night of Brawl, some Gamestop outlets will have additional events, including
  • Trivia [lol trivia]
  • Dress-up Contest [cosplay - ick]
  • Art contest [DRAW SNAKE AND CAPTAIN FALCON. SUBMIT IT AND WATCH THE STORE BURST INTO FLAMES.]
They'll probably be giving away gift cards lol.
Chances are if you live near one of these Gamestops this has been made obvious already. But there's one thing I has that they don't - the questions they'll be asking. I'm afraid I don't have a photographic memory, so I'll recollect to the best of my ability. No particular order, and I apologize if it's not clear. You'll have the upper hand at least, here on at least five questions.
I posted the list at the end of the topic of the few questions I could recall.


If you're worried about people who have the Japanese game and talk shit about wiping the floor with you - don't be. The tourney controller setup is rather strict - you're not allowed to use your own controllers.[spoiler]Each player is given the default Gamestop setup - remote and Nunchuk.

The Remote+Nunchuk layout, by default (go practice on your controller lol)

A = Standard attacks
B = Specials
C = Jump
Z = Shield
D pad down = Shield
D pad left/right = grab
D pad up = Jump
1 = taunt
2 = taunt
1+2 = taunt

It feels a little weird at first but after a few minutes I imagine you're already used to it.[/spoiler]

Each match in the tourney is one-on-one in a ladder bracket format.
In the District tourney (March 08) the matches is one minute long. O_o;;
Items are ON.
Victory in each round will be determined by who has the most KOs.

My advice: Use Pit, Ike or even Donkey Kong. You'll want to get KOs and quick, since if you don't (and it probably will end up this way) all the matches will end up being Sudden Deaths. I'm not sure who to suggest who would possibly rock in Sudden Death except Lucario, but he's not available during the tourney.
I suggested Pit because if items are turned on, his Final Smash is probably the best I've seen so far because you're guaranteed to score at least one KO.

And the setup PROBABLY will have only the initial characters unlocked - basically everyone you see on the Dojo with MAYBE the exception of Sonic and Snake. Which is good.


So yeah - who's participating, and what characters do you plan on using? I'm planning on using Diddy but my opinion's beginning to change - I might use Ike or Pit though I have next to no clue how to use them. ):


As for those trivia questions:
  • What was Mario's first appearance?
    [spoiler]Donkey Kong 1981[/spoiler]
  • What is not part of Mario's Melee moveset?
    [spoiler]I forget the exact ones mentioned - I think the fireball, cape swish, Mario Tornado - the right answer here is Snowball.[/spoiler]
  • Which of the following is in Yoshi's SSBM moveset [maybe they asked which has decent knockback? I forget?]
    [spoiler]I believe it's Egg Roll, or Egg Lay. It's an egg move, that's as far as I remember.[/spoiler]
  • What was unique about the US release of Legend of Zelda?
    [spoiler]The ability to save your game - the actual answer is "internal save battery"[/spoiler]
  • When was Nintendo Co.,LTD. founded?
    [spoiler]September 23, 1889
    Founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi, the company printed handmade hanafuda cards.[/spoiler]

Pit.

He can fly under one side of FD and over to the other side.

3 of his moves reflect, including an A move.

EDIT: Oh wait it is in Canada

Dedede is one of my favourites...

That being said he's tricky to get the hang of initially and you have to abuse his throws (Regular and Waddle Dee kind).

Ike is an excellent beginner character, really. Pit isn't bad, but he's very light.
