Best of 2013


There weren't a whole lot of fighting games this year, but the ones that did make the cut were mostly beloved by the community. We finally have a winner, but let's take a look at all of the hopefuls first.

Here are the nominees for 2013 fighting game of the year.

And the winner is ...

Divekick

Congratulations to Adam Heart and Iron Galaxy Studios for making such a big splash in the fighting game community. It's incredibly tough to really break into the genre, and given the fact that this is an indie, it makes it even tougher.

Many fans enjoyed the easy pick up and play nature of the game, combined with the complexities that lied behind the simple "dive" and "kick" veneer. It'll be interesting to see where this IP goes in the future.

DiveKick was also our number one voted game for the community portion of the awards. Injustice: Gods Among Us came in second, followed by Killer Instinct.

The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...more
