Smash: Who’s Your Bro?

I actually attended my first midnight release to pick up Super Smash Bros. 3DS (which was a sociological experiment unlike any other) and despite a busy weekend, I’ve found time ample time to play and unlock a bunch of the new characters.  Super Smash 3DS is full of new characters anyway: 15– from Pokémon’s Greninja to Pac Man, from Animal Crossing’s Village to Wii Fit Trainer, whose graceful yet powerful fighting style fills me with a strange gamer-glee.  Aside from the 20-some odd characters you start off with, I’ve also unlocked Falco, Ness, Wario, Lucina, Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, R.O.B., Ganondorf, Game & Watch, and Bowser Jr. so far. (I know, I’m probably slow.)  With all of those options, do you know who I’m playing ever single fight with?

couldn't do it without you, buddy.

couldn’t do it without you, buddy.

Kirby.

From Super Smash 64 right through to 3DS, Kirby is my dude.  I’ve tried out other characters for sheer curiosity, but I’m always always always Kirby.  I just can’t play with anyone else.

What I want to know is: Who is your main man in Super Smash?  Who’s your go-to guy?  Has it switched at all in newer incarnations of this game?

What do you think of the new Super Smash so far?  Who have you unlocked?
