Smash Index

Welcome to the Smash Index! This was the first real feature we began to run on p4Ratchet.com and it is in part this feature which has helped me continue to run it today. This here feature is a journey through the origins of each series featured in Super Smash Bros. for N64, featuring many titles that I had never played before. We covered all sorts of titles from Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros. to EarthBound Beginnings and Pokémon Red & Blue. Each game received mutltiple posts each including: an Overview of the game from the perspective of someone playing it today, a run through of the Legacy it has left behind, and finally a piece of Fan-Fiction split into multiple parts.

We bring them altogether for you all now in one place so please venture forth into the Smash Indexes. Let us know what you think in the comment sections below and check this space in future as we venture into the origins of each series introduced in the super successful smash sequel, Super Smash Bros. Melee.
