Machinima / Melee's End
In a world
... where Machinima
is made mainly with modern games with complex texture-hacking and camera controls, one series dares to use an old game and nothing but the options available to them with an Action Replay debug menu.Melee's End
is a comedy series. The main story starts with Mario
convincing the other fighters of Super Smash Bros. Melee
to stop fighting pointlessly and try to find something more productive to do instead. This decision upsets the balance of the game, and things spiral out of control from there.
