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

You'll definitely want to use a Switch Pro Controller for Ultra Street Fighter II

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

Arms never really stood out to me until I started seeing more of it in action. I doubt it'll be the next big thing everyone is playing, but I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it, as it basically looks like Punch Out!! with a more multi...   read

Black Canary finally gets her due in Injustice 2

One of the more glaring injustices of NetherRealm's Injustice: Gods Among Us was the lack of Black Canary. Despite being a huge deal in DC Comics, and one of the best parts of Justice League Unlimited, she's always getting fo...   read

That new Power Rangers movie is getting a mobile game

The Power Rangers had a couple of good games back in the 16 bit era. The SNES beat-em-up and Genesis fighting game are still held in high regard, but you'd be hard pressed to find another game from the series that even comes close to the qu...   read

Tekken 7 adds the vampire Eliza as pre-order DLC

Every bit of Tekken 7 footage has looked better than the last, but Namco Bandai always seems a bit icky with how much DLC seems to be planned with each of their fighting games. Nevertheless, if the eventual DLC additions look as good as Eli...   read

Tekken 7 is out in June with a collector's edition

Having been in this industry a long time, I'm used to blocking off basically all of June as "the E3 month." Everything to be around that time frame is "before E3" (BE3!) or "after E3," and in this case, I'll have a few good weeks with Tekke...   read

Arms is beautiful and fun, but not the next big eSport

There are times when I feel like I'm not playing a game to its max potential, that there is some high skill ceiling I'm not quite reaching. That often comes when playing fighting games, but not just fighting games. Games like Crysis an...   read

Some Switch games won't force motion controls, including Arms

One of the things I loved about the Wii U is how much Nintendo backpedaled on motion. Sure some games had it as an option to aim with the GamePad's gyroscope, but compare say, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze's smooth button-based rolling as op...   read
