Nintendo is looking into Smash Bros. related Wii U error codes

Super Smash Bros. might be a major hit for Nintendo, but a small number of people are having some issues with a few specific error codes on the Wii U. 160-0103 and 160-1710 may occur when players are engaging in the "For...

Street Fighter V teaser trailer leaked, planned to be a PS4/PC exclusive photo
Street Fighter V teaser trailer leaked, planned to be a PS4/PC exclusive
by Jonathan Holmes

There is a big PlayStation event happening this weekend, and as is customary for big events in this industry, we have been granted a nice pre-event leak to chew on. Unlike the big Smash Bros. leak from earlier this year, this one seems to have come from the publisher itself. Capcom posted this teaser trailer on its YouTube page a few hours ago, and has since taken it down. Oops! I'm guessing it will be putting it back up again in the next 72 hours or so, hopefully with a little more info on what Street Fighter V will have to offer. 

It doesn't look like Street Fighter V will be that different from its predecessor, at least where graphics are concerned. Ryu and Chun Li look a lot like they did in Street Fighter IV but with less exaggerated features and a little more detail in their character models. With diminished visual wow-factor, its status as a PS4 and PC exclusive, and "Street Fighter IV update fatigue" plaguing less competitive fans of the series, I'm already a little worried that the game may not drum up as much excitement as Street Fighter IV did all those years ago. 

Then again, EVO is bigger than ever, and the PS4 and PC are the easiest consoles to stream from. Maybe Street Fighter V will surpass Street Fighter IV's popularity through those means. I sure hope so. After Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, the series went into hibernation for almost ten years. Those were sad times. Hopefully Street Fighter V will prevent them from returning.

Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch

It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to ...

Take a cue from Mario Tennis to pick a Smash Bros. main

Newcomers to Smash Bros. might find the Wii U version to be a bit daunting. There are almost fifty characters, most considerably different from one another. Even seasoned Smash players have wildly differing opinions whe...

Which Smash Bros. character do you think is the most competitive?

I've been spending a lot of time with Rosalina in Smash Bros. I've been interested in her before the game was released as I like the character quite a bit, and Luma sweetened the deal. After an extended amount of play, I...

Why is Ryu a wolf in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV DLC?

The Misfits have a song called Demonmania (pronounced Deh-EE-Mono-Mee-Ah). In the song, Glenn Danzig clearly sings the words "Look upon me, I am a bee... My mother was a wolf... My father was a wolf." That's what it sounds li...

Brendan Fraser wouldn't like this next Killer Instinct Season 2 character

Sakurai: Ridley as a playable Smash Bros. fighter 'wouldn't be Ridley any longer'

Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U photo
Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
by Chris Carter

Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS was everything I hoped it would be. It rekindled my love for the franchise after my group of friends and I lost interest due to Brawl, and I'm playing online more often than I would with most fighting games. In pretty much every aspect, the game is a success in my eyes, and it seems that sales agree.

But of course the main event is one that can be seen on a glorious television, with four (now eight) players all clamoring over some drinks and having a great time. In that regard, Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U might be the best iteration yet.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is heading to Steam next month, H2 Interactive has announced. It will feature both online and local multiplayer as well as English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese language options.

The pulbisher released Calamity Trigger, the first title in Arc System Works' vaunted fighting game series, on Steam earlier this year. Perhaps we can look forward to seeing Chrono Phantasma on PC sometime in 2015.
