How I Play Smash 4 Upside Down

Beewito - January 24, 2018


Ever since I could remember, I have been a Nintendo enthusiast. Nintendo was the first to grab my heart to have a love for their games and video games in general. Hi, I'm Beewito and I am a fresh gaming youtuber, that has a very distinct quality about playing video games, let me explain. So, around the time I was 2, Nintendo 64 had just came out. Obviously, I hadn’t known this at the time, but I did have someone who did know. That person is my older brother, he was 8 at the time, and had gotten an N64 for his birthday. For a while, being a 2 year old, I didn’t understand the concept of video games at all. That is until the day I became a, “gamer”, and what formed into something abnormal about me. So one day, my brother was at school, it was around 12:00 PM and I was bored of playing with my action figures and messing around with paper. I noticed the N64 across the hallway in my brothers room, just sitting there being unplayed. Inevitably, being the toddler I was, I got curious because it hadn’t looked like something I’ve seen before, and because I thought it was a toy. So I walked over to it, feeling and holding the actual console for a bit,  feeling some of the games, and almost lost interest. Until I saw a little switch on the top front of the console, I decided to push it up, and voila this is where it began (the TV was on already and the controllers were already plugged in). Super Smash Bros was in the console, and that’s the game that came up on the TV. I distinctly remember jumping up and down with excitement. At the time, doing and figuring out something like this was amazing to me. Anyways, before touching anything I watched the opening intro/cutscene of the game, with my mouth wide open, stunned with amazement. After the cutscene was over, I picked up the controller and pressed one of the buttons to start the game. After some confusement, messing around with modes, and playing with menus, I had outstandingly, started an actual match. The match begins, I was Mario, and I had chosen a Lvl. 3 Yoshi as a CPU, both my character and the cpu’s were both chosen at random by me, because I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. We were fighting on the Hyrule Castle stage. Since it was my first time playing any sort of video games in my life, I obviously didn’t know how to hold the controller to play. In fact, the only way I was even to start a game, was me just pressing random buttons and holding the controller by the tip of my fingers. After turning the controller all which ways and trying to hold it in different positions, I had finally found a semi-comfortable way to hold the controller, which was, believe it or not, UPSIDE DOWN! I know, crazy right? This became the normal way for me to hold this controller, to this day. It’s not just THIS specific controller though. I also hold the GameCube controller upside down too, which is what you see in this video. This video goes in depth, on what goes my through my mind as I’m playing games like smash. Like the optimal positions to hold the controller upside down to do certain moves, or what to press and how to press buttons. Oh, and I forgot to mention, that first match I played against the CPU Yoshi, I of course lost against him, practice makes perfect! Smash isn’t the only game I play upside down, I basically play all games on the N64 and Gamecube upside down, unless the controls are reverse inverted on a certain game. I’m going to post more content in the future of me playing different games, so Y'all could get weirded out even more. Anyways, I hope you liked the video and hopefully follow me on my quest to find every game on these systems to play upside down and show to the world. Hopefully, I see some of you on my channel on Youtube, see Y'all!
