The news feed in SSF2.

News Feed is a menu option in Super Smash Flash 2. It contains news entries pertaining to the game provided by McLeodGaming, which can be clicked on and read. When a new entry is added, a notice is displayed upon loading the game, and the name of the newest entry is displayed on the menu option the at the top of the screen.

All news entries are provided through the Internet and temporarily downloaded upon starting the game, and they get deleted upon closing the game. If the game is unable to connect to the server, then the menu option will read "No news currently available" and the player will be unable to open the News Feed menu.
