Bleh! Killer Instinct is getting a vampire with Mira

Oh hey, that leak (which also confirmed General RAAM of Gears of War fame) was right! Mira is indeed joining the fray as the "dead" sister of Maya. It actually makes sense too, as she's a vampire. She's teased at the very end of the video b...

Interesting look at input lag in fighting games

Frames count. Microsecond delays between the push of a button and when that action is carried out can make or break a fighting game. After all, if you can't trust the game to respond when you need it to, what's the point? It can take a high...
