What is Star Renegades and why does it look like a better Project X Zone?


The breakdown of my Gundam marathon month is up! I was hoping to have it ready for my birthday, but I got bogged down near the end, so happy birthday to Fuzunga instead! For those who don't have the time for the whole thing, here's the final ranking:


Link just jumped out of my phone, stole my birthday cake, and ran away.


Please remember that a round of games, including Devil May Cry 5 and several cool indies, left Xbox Game Pass in mid-August. This is the service Microsoft is banking on for next gen, and you can get it on PC and current gen. This will be on the test.


Happy birthday to H and Blues! I brought a present, but it's not just for you! I'm not one for MOBAs, but if you told me gender-swapped Nero from Devil May Cry was in League of Legends with a matching style meter... I wouldn't believe you. AND YET!


Mike, I understand why your avatar has been the Turn A Gundam for so long. It's top tier in every sense. SHINING FI- f-Finger? What? Why do you kno- does the Turn X have PIRATED COPIES OF GUNDAM FIGHT on its hard drive?!


Gundam Thunderbolt is fantastic. The first season is definitely among the must-watch Gundam shows. Only an hour long, too. I'd post the Spongebob "acquire a taste for freeform jazz" clip, but something's coming... something familiar...


I know I just said I'd limit these posts, but Gundam Unicorn is good, it's good, it's so good, it's the best Gundam thing I've seen. Don't start with it, but it's a worthy goal.


Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack has been slain, and I am now free from adhering to the original arc. It was a good movie, with an overly vague ending and the dumbest kids yet. Don't want to make a habit of posting about the rest. Also, hey FFVII.


Finished ZZ Gundam. After it got better 10 episodes in and got better AGAIN after 20 episodes, it might have become my favourite Gundam show. The Gundam Team has a nice spice to them. Also, mad props to Judau for peace-ing out and living past 80.


That's a wrap on Zeta Gundam. A solid show propelled by the strength of its mechs and some of its cast - and the hundred little hilarious moments like the one below. Props for an ending so unique I was speechless. BOY, the last stretch went nuts.


Finished watching Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin and the OG compilation movies. Movies had some ROUGH editing, but the writing still shone through. Glad The Origin had villain introductions to make up for the films' lack thereof. Also, GEEZ, CHAR.


Rumours I've heard today: there might be a State of Play or PS5 event on the 6th, and Halo Infinite may have a Battle Royale mode. One yay, one uuuuhhhh, didn't they say they wouldn't? Source for the latter in comments.


Gundam Extreme Vs. is good so far. Barely played, just trying to get a handle right now. Now, I'd like to work my way through the cast, but somebody caught my eye. Why did no one tell me there's an MC Gundam that's JUST Guts?!


You may have heard that Pokken Tournament DX is having a week-long free trial, but Nintendo has blown past all expectations and also made the game 30% off! This is unprecedented, but it makes some sense when you realize Pokken is STILL getting majors!


My thought process: Oh hey, a new Kamen Rider fighting game. Looks like 3v3. Guess I'll import it. ..."Form change combos"? Only three characters? What is... IS THIS A CHARACTER ACTION GAME?! WHY DOES IT LOOK LIKE BOOTLEG PLATINUM?! WOOOOOAAAAAHHHH-


Screw everything in this interview. Classic Paper Mario is dead, and not only does Nintendo not want to make it, they're shackling creativity. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/features/interviews/paper-mario-origami-king/amp/?%20=true


Devolver Digital wasn't the only press conference today. Join ex-speedrunner Simpleflips as he takes you through the wide world of fangames and mods. And perhaps, maybe, something My Uncle Who Works At Nintendo said will come to pass...


Big Brain: Drakengard 1's joke ending leads into the NieR universe. Cosmic, Shimmering Galaxy Brain: E.V.O: The Theory of Evolution has more bad endings than NieR: Automata, and several lead into classic Dragon Quest.


Hey, remember that Biomutant thing that was revealed years ago? It's back, the devs like Breath of the Wild, it has TOO MUCH CONTENT, and is now one of my most anticipated games?!


Hey, remember that gorgeous pixel art SCP Foundation action game? ...What do you mean, you don't? They showed 5 seconds of it at the Future Games Show yesterday. ...Which you didn't watch. Eh, good choice, but you may wanna' see this one.


Touhou Luna Nights in fugging incredible and I'm sorry it took me till now to get to it. The title screen remix alone punched me in the face, and it just got cooler and cooler from there. Case in point, minute TEN:


Took almost a decade, but I'm in there. Got my horrible mutant character, a decent beginner's class, the Master Key, 60fps, a light visual mod, and a shield strong enough to be a sword. Let's go, Dark Souls.


This ain't normal Quickpost fare, but Card Sagas Wars' first community tournament just entered its Top 8. The game is super sick, has a crossover roster of champions, and is a pixel-art beauty. Take a look! https://www.twitch.tv/masterhandgaming


The amount of snow and hail in Spring we've got over the past week feels post-apocalyptic.


I joined a podcast! Me and my colleagues discuss what will happen to conventions in a post-pandemic world, our histories with Final Fantasy, and what to do in quarantine! https://player.fm/series/pixels-ink/pixels-ink-episode-308-conpocalypse


Ehrgeiz: God Bless The Ring is an acceptable game to play in 2020, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.


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.
