similarly down air is the same thing except you angle the control stick downward instead of behind you.

I tried Melee and didn't like it. I guess Smash really isn't my thing.
Melee is fantastic what are you talking about?
He just said it wasn't his thing...
That was a pointless reply
Just like most of your replies?

I'm not telling you the same thing somebody just said so no
Rocket... dude.
Use your brain. I've seen too many replies from you completely missing the point.
I wanted to know specifically why boss didn't like melee. So saying "he just doesnt like it" was indeed pointless.

What the hell is "down air to shine"?

Teach me, master.
let me just run-down what the community calls all the attacks

Jabs - Pressing A however many times in place to get your jab combo. Falco's is really bad (all rapid jabs are in Melee). Officially, they're called "standard attacks" or "weak attacks."
Dash attacks - Self-explanatory. Try not to do these too often.
Tilts - F-tilt (forward tilt), U-tilt (up tilt), or D-tilt (down tilt). Tilting the stick in one direction gently and pressing A. Some F-tilts can be angled to suit your position, if you tilt the stick at a slight angle. Officially, they're called "strong attacks."
Smash attacks - F-smash, up smash, and down smash. Some F-smashes can be angled, like f-tilts. They're pretty self-explanatory, but don't you sleep on the down smash. Very underrated move in Smash.
Aerial attacks - Nair, Fair, Bair, Uair, and Dair. Neutral, forward, backward, upward, and downward. Falco's most important tools are his aerials (he's a bird, after all). His down air (dair) is the undisputed best move in the game, because it allows you to spike your opponent downwards at very low percents.

Special moves:
Laser - Falco's neutral special. Officially called the Blaster. It's the same as Fox's, except with a lower rate of fire, and it actually flinches your opponents.
Falco Phantasm - Falco's side special, usually just shortened to Phantasm. Fox's is pretty much the same, except Falco's is faster, but covers less distance. While best used for recovery, it can cause a meteor smash if you manage to catch someone in midair with it.
Fire Bird - Falco's up special, and primary recovery move (or the move you use to get back on the stage). Works just like Fox's, but covers much less distance, and actually has KO power.
Shine - Falco's down special. While it's supposed to reflect projectiles, it works better as an offensive tool and combo starter. It activates in one frame, making it the fastest move in the game, and after you activate it, you can jump straight out of it and follow up with any number of mixups. It's a particularly advanced technique, though, so I wouldn't even really worry about it. As I mentioned earlier, it's actually called the Reflector.

Falco, as I'm sure you've noticed, has the highest jumps in the game, which allow him to do some pretty nasty shit in midair. If you mash B while doing his side special, it's possible to shorten his Falco Phantasm, which can be used as a feint.

But yeah, in general, dair whenever you can. Since it spikes your opponent at such a weird angle, you don't even need to be near the edge to spike them. It's fucking nuts.

Dair to shine is Falco's bread and butter in competitive play, pretty much. Normally, you start off with a Reflector at lower percents. This'll send your opponent upward. From there, you can jump-cancel out of the shine and follow up with an aerial (but try to avoid using Falco's fair--it's pretty bad). The best option is dair, because it sends your opponent straight down again.

At that point, you can fast fall, chasing your opponent back down to the ground, and use Reflector again to send them back up. Repeat.

It's tricky, but fun as hell once you can get something going.

I've got a lot to learn. Thanks Verb, I'm sure I'll have more questions once I put some of these techniques into practice.

Luckily my copy of Melee just came in the mail. Time to git gud.

Fuck yeah!

I can never be a melee pro due to the sheer craziness of speed needed. But Wii U might be a possibility with time.

if you like ganon, check out bizzarro flame

he's my favorite player, next to westballz and leffen

here's him beating a level 9, handicap 9 ganon CPU at handicap 1

(handicaps raise/lower the amount of knockback you take from attacks.
1: any move will send you flying, 9: barely any knockback until, like, 300%)

Christ, I can't beat this 100-Man Melee challenge to get Falco.

I get to like, 30 guys and I'll accidentally run off the edge or something. Wish I could play something other than Final Destination.
