My love for Twelve set aside, Gill is an incredibly good pick for Street Fighter V. Exudes style, really jives with the two V-Triggers, and a left-field pick in spite of story mode presence. Also of note: a parry not attached to a V-system. Hmmm…

 
 
 

From the twisted minds behind Fight of Gods, comes the next big poverty sensation: Fight of Animals.

 
 

I knew a Nintendo Direct was coming this week or next, but I didn't expect a 2019 Smash Direct. No announcements pertaining to unannounced characters? We'll see.

 
 

New Guilty Gear looks really freaking good, you guys. Also, we got gameplay. Shorter overall combos with higher damage, but a lot of Guilty Gear's signature mechanics are still present. Game gives you MUCH more information. Closed beta Spring 2020.

 
 

New house, new job hunt, and new post-Power Stone era (this time, with clarity!). Perfect time to reinvent myself! Uncle Arena Fighter has served me well, but my presence here has become far more diverse and weird than I envisioned. Here's to the future!


 
 
 

Article's up! In celebration of Sans in Smash (and Banjo I guess), I'm took a trip down memory lane to revisit Deltarune. Now if you'll excuse me, the garage sale was kind of a bust, but cleanup was easy and now I'm headed out to dinner! Happy trails!

 
 

My special article is going to have to come tomorrow, on my birthday. Normally I'd run myself ragged to get an FF out before midnight, but I have to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to host a garage sale. Sorry (even though it doesn't matter)!

 
 

…Aw hell, now's the perfect time for a Deltarune Freeware Friday, isn't it? Birthday week and everything. Man, everytime I think I'm out, they just pull me back in.


 
 

Astral Chain immediately feels nothing like any other Platinum game. Hey, uh, is anyone else picking up just a hint of Soulsborne from your officer's button layout?

 
 

What if there was a Pokemon game... but it was a metroidvania... and had a surprisingly sophisticated battle system that encouraged planning, preparedness, and player creativity? Meet Monster Sanctuary. #FreewareFriday #EndOfFreewareathonArc I'm @ bed.


 
 

Went to an EB Games to maybe get a copy of Control. Turns out, they're sold out of it for the entire region! Good on Remedy. I'll get to it a little later down the line.

 
 

This is an accurate summation of tonight's Freeware Friday. I've struck gold, and I'm happy to share.


 
 

Room is the cleanest it's ever been. Old house sold, new house bought. Moving for the first time within two months. Hope all is well. Also, thinking of making Freeware Fridays bi-weekly. Don't want to force myself or outstay my welcome.


 
 

Flame Hyenard's screaming and the average health of an X7 boss have been well-documented. But there's so much more madness to his fight! What's with all his clones and the giant, missile-launching robo-bull?! ...Anyways, Freeware Friday's up.


 
 

I don't finish projects late, I finish projects /late at night./ The second Freeware Friday is up, covering a character action-platformer emulating Megaman Zero, as well as its predecessor.


 
 

The… MADMEN at Arc… just announced the singleplayer mode for Granblue Fantasy Versus… it's an RPG beat-'em-up… with local and online co-op. I gotta'… I gotta' sit down… Not since Brawl have I seen such opulence in a fighting game.


 
 

Article's up, and aaaall the images are borked. Works fine everywhere else, including right here. Is that a thing with PNGs? Certain resolutions? Wanna' do the best I can.


 
 

Pulling the trigger on a long-term writing project, and making it public right away. I'll see you tomorrow...


 
 

Capcom has broken new ground ny confirming their Street Fighter V leak right away. Props, I'm impressed. https://mobile.twitter.com/StreetFighter/status/1156742613078302720

 
 

The Kill la Kill IF PS4 demo is out now and free in most countries; it comes with pre-orders in the US and Canada. I was buying the game no matter what, so I'll get it tomorrow. To be continued.

 
 

I found it. Mezquita Hearts, a real Kingdom Hearts fighting game. I dug too deep to get here... my soul... is in... pieces. I leave you... with... thissssss......


 
 

I think the Dragon Quest Heroes look more interesting in Smash Ultimate than Banjo and Kazooie, who I find plain. AND I CURRRRRSE YOU ALL TO ENDURE AT LEAST ONE MORE SWORD CHARACTER BEFORE THE FIGHTERS PASS IS THROUGH! EEEEEE-HEEHEEHEEEEEE!


 
 
 

Went insane from pre-E3 news drought. Over past week, played 8 hours of the Black Desert Online trial, and downloaded over 10 free fighting games. All of it is good. All of it is good. All of good All good All good AAAAll g-g-g-g-g-GGHCKK


 
 

Here's a short n' sweet article about boss fundamentals in action games. A summary would steal its thunder, but I like the emphasis on making the player move a lot. I'll pay attention to that in the future. https://www.patreon.com/posts/26838015

 
 

Just discovered a parallel Chris Carter that reviews movies instead of games.


 
 

Combining two posts for maximum mechanical efficiency. Happy birthday, Final Fantasy VII Remake. I heard that the Kingdom Hearts 2 battle planner was working on Torchman, so I have absolute faith that he'll turn out good.


 
 

Steam and PSN are having a legendary Golden Week sale, and... I don't even know. I don't even know! I don't even know. Here, just... throw game suggestions at each other, and maybe at me. I don't even know.

 
 

About Uncle Arena Fighterone of us since 11:00 AM on 12.28.2018

Howdy. RMC here.

Big fan of action games, especially stylish action and arena fighters. Regular fighting games are an old flame of mine, though I was never any good at them. Platformers are a casual interest.

As for a bit about myself, I am a freelance writer and aspiring game designer. I'm also Canadian, and thus subject to raised Canadian game prices! Woo!

Ask me anything about fighting games. I know a little about a lot of things.
