Whip confirmed as King of Fighters XIV's first DLC character

King of Fighters XIV gets a bad rap. It's yet another great entry in the franchise even if the new art style makes it seem more stiff than previous entries. I'll admit it was tough for me to get used to at first, but after putting some time...   read

What I really think the Dead or Alive series says about violence against women

I made a guest appearance on the Polygamer podcast to announce that I'm on not one, not two, but four panels at PAX East this year. The podcast, and list of panels I'll be appearing on, can be found here.  I didn't spend much time...   read

Street Fighter V's competitive scene is really taking to Kolin

The second season of Street Fighter V began with Akuma, and the newcomer (who was present in the series in the past, but not playable) Kolin is keeping the party going. Naturally, pro players have already taken her to the lab and are f...   read

Doctor Fate is an ass-kicking maestro in Injustice 2

I only know Doctor Fate from his brief appearance in the Young Justice cartoon, but I enjoyed playing him during my hands-on with Injustice 2 here at the Game Developers Conference. For a game as dark and gritty as Injustice -- Superman is ...   read

Damn, Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade just keeps adding new characters

I hope that Square Enix is saving its PS4 port of Dissidia Final Fantasy for when the roster is mostly complete, so they can avoid patching it every month or so. That's how often they'd have to do it to keep up with the arcade edition,...   read

The next PSVR game, Steel Combat, is out in Japan tomorrow

With all of the issues Oculus is having, and the sufficient sales for PSVR, are we entering an era where developers start to port over their projects and favor the latter over the former? It's too early to tell, but for now, we're gett...   read

Review: For Honor

I spent a lot of time dueling other players in Dark Souls. I'd carelessly wander into the Darkroot forest and willfully invite the protectors of those shaded woods to come and try to force me out of them. I'd painfully claw my way through t...   read

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...   read

Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 headed to North America with prior DLC included

Looks like someone heard me when I pointed out that the Steam release of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator would not come with the previously released DLC, or at least I like to think that. In any case the newest version of Guilty Gear Xr...   read

Review in Progress: For Honor

For Honor reminds me of the kind of game that gets featured in TV shows where the writers don't really know a lot about games. It's just this crazy mash-up of fantasy warriors, cool martial arts, and plenty of blood splashed about without a...   read

Swamp Thing to drain the swamp in Injustice 2

Although I've been enjoying every character reveal thus far for Injustice 2, something's been missing. I've been hyped regardless, but none of the characters had "wowed" me yet. That is, until now. Coming off of a recent boon to his popular...   read

Nobody is using their words to work out their differences in For Honor's launch trailer

Ubisoft's For Honor releases on Valentine's Day, which is a day for lovers and not for fighters. Good luck explaining that to these samurais, vikings, and knights. All these testosteroned-up macho men won't stop trying to stab each ot...   read

I call dibs on Ninjara for Nintendo Switch's Arms
