Review: Lethal League

At first, I loved Lethal League. It has plenty of style, it has a fun central mechanic, and it filled my need for a chaotic yet accessible fighter to bust out at parties – now that I no longer have access to Smash Bros. But as I made ...   read

A fighting game tournament with two-second rounds? I'm in

Street Fighter V is a fantastic game that Capcom is handling all wrong
