With every Smash update, every recordings are completely usable.

(OOR: Out of Rant)
Well how is that? Well the in-game saved matches actually saves the controller inputs and other mechanics into a short memory box for when the player decides to save or not. So, with every update, character balances are made, and so if you were to recreate the same button input, some changes can be noticable, and therefore may desync with the original match. Example since Ganondorf now has super armor on his turn-around warlock punch, he can't flinch. Prior updates did not have it, so you hit him, he gets knocked back. However using the same saved match (saved controller input match) the outcome will be different and therefore will not yield the same result. It is why every update makes past saved matches obsolete.

----BACK<------
---To the Rant----->

Why am I annoyed of this? Well... I don't own a Wii U unfortunately. However I have a nephew who does and we have lots of fun and record good matches. He doesn't come very often and when he does, I use my capture card to forever save the moments.
BUTT...
There are times the update has to be made, and the saved matches become obsolete, and therefore have no choice but to delete the matches. Gets me annoyed cause I didn't get the chance to actually record them before the updates roll out, and some of them were good ones.

Well... wasn't that bad to have an update roll out after 2-3 months (unlike the other update that broke Diddy once again and had to roll another update in 3 days or he be broken OP again. Had a good saved match in that time too.) At least now they have updated to render and upload straight to Youtube. Though I like the quality the Elgato capture card delivers much better. (Hehe Elgato. It is like saying spanish for Thecat)

I'm playing Final Fantasy Lightning returns at the moment, i got these 2 group of outfits & weapons & shields which all came to me for owning the past 2 games, so i consider them "special" items but why in the world are they weaker then certain regular items you get at the Forge/regular store?! i don't wanna mix and match right now cause i want to keep it "iconic" plus i really like the appearance of these items, still! why are they weaker then the ordinary items?! it doesn't make any sense to me ono!

Computers... oh the horror that is a CPU partner!  DD:

When grinding for levels takes such a long time.

Oh man, that's the problem I'm having with my game right now! It takes too long to grind and I can't go any further in the story until I do so... WHY?

Been there with CPU as buddies. Either clumsy, Leroy Jenkins wannabes, or even unhelpful.

The grinding... well grinding for level ups isn't all too bad for me, though it is annoying to spend so much time to reach the level you want. However grinding for luck-based stuff of incredible rarity are my true headache. Possibly get so unlucky you may never get it.

You ever get the feeling that people are cheating? No, not like actually using programs to cheat, but the fact that there are people who are so good at a game that you cannot mentally wrap your head around the fact that someone could have mastered their character so well that the only solution is that person has got to be cheating.
If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.

Its how i felt when fighting someone in the Ps2 Naruto games and they kept playing as Itachi... back then i went ballistic trying to figure out why i can't even land one punch (the person i played with back them has long since vanished though so i can;t get my revenge :l!)

Another Disney Infinity thing but its been a couple months sense i sent in the compliant about a certain glitch in Disney Infinity and it still hasn't been fixed... i don;t know much about programming and stuff but with all the stuff they been doing i'd think fixing the Boss Spawner to stop the boss from not moving or taking damage would be 2nd nature or something, its ruining all my creations since i usually put bosses in the waves of enemies

i wonder if some of these video games just assume everyone googles about guides and such, like how am i supposed to know the boss will become a stronger version of themselves if i took a certain amount of time to fight them... now i'm stuck with Snow++ in Lighting returns >:O!

i mean i like strong enemies but i just wanted to finish the game so i could move on to one of my other games and i have no idea why none of the minions/enemies haven't dropped a Firestrike ability so i can at least stagger him DD:

...think i could beat him though, i just have to use fire on all my skills maybe?

Games that only have 1 save slot and if u want to make a new game u have to wipe out completely your previous hard earned progress otherwise u can't, nowadays is not that usual to see that but still i have some bad memories about certains games and one that accidentally erased from a friend ps2 memory card, sometimes even after all this years he still brings the topic of the erased file lol, the pain never leaves apparently.

I have some games on the Ps3 like that, my cousin keeps asking to try my games out and i don't want to start a new game because of that, i could save it on a Flash Drive though but he doesn't give me the time :l

I bought an XBox 360 controller for my PC gamepad specifically because of this problem.  It's helped tremendously, but I'm still annoyed I had to do it.

I currently do not have the money to buy another controller, unfortunately. I used to have a couple controllers I would use, but I lost them to a flood.
