Alex in SFV
Okay, I'll level with you. I'm not a professional at Street Fighter V. What I am pretty good at is being decent. I've collected resources that have helped me go from "utterly hopeless" as an Alex player to "hey, I think I understand this guy!" and now I'm here to pass the knowledge on to you!   read

KI Season 3 Review
If you tried to tell me that they were going to resurrect Killer Instinct as a free-to-play game and have it be successful, I simply wouldn't believe you. The original had all but faded into obscurity outside of the "c-c-c-combo breaker!" meme that permeated the Internet.  Yet, here we are, with Season 3 upon us, and it's one of my favorite fighting games on the market.   read
