Over 4,000 World Warriors have signed up for SFV at this year's EVO

Street Fighter V hasn't exactly been burning up the sales charts. Its barebones launch and delayed content drops haven't exactly endeared the title to the mainstream audience. Unsurprisingly though, that doesn't seem to matter at all to the...

Wii U modders get Goku in Super Smash Bros.

One of SNK's best fighting games is coming to PS4, Vita

SNK used to be a powerhouse back in the day. The very first fighting game I can recall playing isn't Street Fighter, but King of Fighters at a Fun Factory -- I picked Andy Bogard and didn't really like him, eventually gravitating ...

Dead or Alive 5 gets another absurd $93 costume pass

Does it feel like Dead or Alive 5 has been out forever? That's because it has. Originally released in 2012 (in North America before Japan, by the way) the game has been getting boat loads of DLC, updates, and re-releases, with the last vers...

New trailer reveals that Guile is still into Sonic Booms, hairstyle maintenance

Something about Guile's new look just seems off to me. He looks more like a pushy TSA agent who is way too into his job than a military badass. Maybe it's the lack of camouflage pants? In any case, he still has the moves. This new characte...

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
