There is no doubt that Capcom had a rocky launch of Street Fighter V. Its console release was limited, there were fewer characters, and there was almost no story to go along with it. In the course of over five years of development, they were able to make it one of the biggest fighting games in recent history, as well as add new content to it. With Street Fighter 6 being released, what type of comp...[Read More]
I asked everyone in the queue line what they were running to, what they wanted to see first. The obvious answer was the Nintendo Switch, which is definitely what most were waiting patiently for. The same thing was true of most of the press at the show. It was more orderly, but both sides of the booth were packed with a line and I took the shorter route to try out multiple games over trying The Leg...[Read More]

Capcom loves releasing fighting games. I’ll admit, I own quite a few Capcom fighting titles, but I don’t always give them the love that’s needed. Maybe it’s because I’m bad at them…one day I’d love to have a nice fight-stick to help increase my chances of winning. That being said, today Capcom has announced the limited edition Street Fighter 25th Anniversa...[Read More]
Before starting up BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, I had never played a BlazBlue title. I remember being very interested in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger when it released back in 2009, but at the time, for whatever reason, I passed on it, and as I got farther and farther away from the release date, I simply gave it up as a lost cause and moved on. When BlazBlue: Continuum Shift was released in 2010...[Read More]
When I first heard that a Voltron game was coming to XBLA, I was pretty excited. As a kid, it was one of the staple cartoons that I would watch. What’s not to love? Giant mechanical lions piloted by space heroes, an even more giant mechanical hero that the lions transform into, and ridiculous dialogue from even more ridiculous enemies; everything you could want in a classic, as the later Pow...[Read More]
While enjoying elementary school recess in the late 80’s, my friends and I played various games of the imagination, from X-Men to G.I. Joe, and from Super Heroes to Street Fighter. You have never known joy if you didn’t spend 30 minutes a day running around shouting, “HADOUKEN! NO… NO! SNAKE EYES CAN’T BLOCK A HADOUKEN WITH HIS NINJA POWERS, YOU BIG BUTTHEAD!” N...[Read More]
I’ve been gaming since around the age of five, and up until last November I thought I had achieved some of the most rewarding and inspiring moments of my gaming life: catching ’em all the first time, vanquishing Ganon for the first time, the list goes on. But something happened over the course of 48 hours from November 19 to November 21 that easily put all of those achievements to sham...[Read More]
I am a patriotic man at heart. I love this country I live in. Despite all its blemishes and past mistakes…hell, even some of its current mistakes…I think America is the greatest nation on Earth, created by taking in the best people on Earth. And on July fourth, we celebrate everything in America that is good and pure and explode-able in the most spectacular and flashy way possible. And...[Read More]
Everyone has their own opinion about what video games are the best that have ever graced a console. What makes this top ten list different and totally unique is that my opinion is, in fact, the correct opinion, whereas the opinions of the past are incorrect and undeniably inferior. Actually, to call it my “opinion” is in itself misleading, as it is no mere opinion, but solid, irrefutab...[Read More]
It almost sounds like a bad joke. I mean, can you name one movie based on a video game that truly captured everything that made that game loved enough that people would want to see a film based on it? And with Capcom’s popular Street Fighter franchise, the joke just seems worse. We’ve had two Hollywood films come out that completely missed the point of the game (I prefer the one with J...[Read More]
A fighting game that makes you work for your wins.
