111 - Culture SMASH

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct has come and gone, and the Rocket Punch crew are curious as to what this means now and in the future for the popular fighting game from Nintendo! This week, the crew talk about the culture surrounding Smash, and how different it is from other games in its genre. Why does Smash feel so different from other fighters? Could the game become a platform in the future instead of a standalone title? Will they EVER get rid of the Gamecube controller support? WE talk about this and more, including impressions from the Red Dead Redemption 2 and DOOM Eternal gameplay trailers, Discord adding a storefront to its resume, and more!
