Review: The Rhythm of Fighters

Over the past few decades, SNK has created a vast stable of memorable characters and franchises. I remember going into an arcade as a child for the first time and spending $10 on Fatal Fury, finding the fighters there more ap...

PSA: King of Fighters XIII is on Steam, on sale
by Steven Hansen

Last week, we reported on some leaks that suggested SNK Playmore's King of Fighters XIII would follow the trajectory of many contemporary fighters and end up on Steam. That has in fact happened.The Steam release touts, "vastly improved netcode," to abet online play and all comes bundled with all previously released DLC.

The gorgeous 2D fighter is listed on Steam at $29.99, though you can pre-purchase until September 13 for $24.99. While the game isn't slated to release until September 13, a lucky 300 users can also get in on a closed beta for the game by entering here. The website notes the drawing will be a lottery, "if the number of applicants exceed 300 people." I guess they're not expecting demand to be all that high. At least not out of the gate.

Any PC-only people looking to pick this one up? I'm terrible at fighters, but dug the heck out of King of Fighters XIII when it was release free on PS+. The animation and sprite work are phenomenal. It's also plenty fun, despite my lack of skill.

EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype photo
EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype
by Wesley Ruscher

Another year, another Evolution Championship Series under wraps. This year's premiere fighting game tournament was by far the biggest to date boasting over 3,000 participants from over 30 countries, stretching across nine of the most elite games in the genre. 

Three days of non-stop action, that began with some of the most intense semi-final matches to grace the first day of the tournament ever. There were multiple bouts, especially in Super Street Fighter IV Arcade and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that could have easily been grand final championship fights. It was definitely a rollercoaster ride of emotion from start to finish. 

Day three culminated in another justifiably crazy day full of upsets and memorable moments. The amount of heart on display was inspiring. Reigning champs were dethroned and new kings of the stick were crowned. 

Here are the winners and most hype moments of EVO 2013.
