Tekken is home to some of fighting games’ most interesting characters, and Yoshimitsu ranks highly amongst them for me. Yoshimitsu is one of the series’ most iconic characters despite largely being story-irrelevant, and he also has some of the games’ best (and weirdest) costumes. Let’s rate them. Continue reading
A couple of days ago, Capcom announced via its website Capcom Unity that Street Fighter V would get a new and final season of characters. Setting aside the awful conditions regarding its costume contest (c’mon, pay artists, Capcom. It’s not that difficult), let’s talk about potential suitors for a new DLC season. Who should make the cut? Continue reading
It should be fairly obvious that I have a bit of an obsession with more “retro” fighting games, especially in the realm of Capcom. From the early days of playing Super Street Fighter II Turbo on SNES, old school fighting games have been part of my life- and Rival Schools: United by Fate is no exception. So, why is there no continuation of the series? Continue reading

With most of the world still under some measure of quarantine, emulation has proved an important key to continue engaging in fighting games. Continue reading
Big news: I was extended an invitation to join the online good vibes crew at Team YASE, and I heartily accepted. What does this mean for this more personal blog? It could develop in a few different ways. Continue reading
With the release of the Samurai Shodown reboot right around the corner, SNK took an opportunity to both release a new trailer and a spicy new bit of news: those who pre-order the game and all the early adopters will receive the Season One pass for free by registering the game by June 30th.

It was a similar tale as the match against the Dragons: the Justice were nowhere to be seen in the first half, and appeared a different team in the second. Unlike the match against the Dragons, the Justice would pave their way to an intense and resounding victory (with ice cream, courtesy of Sleepy).
