A Double Dragon fighting game based on the 1994 movie? James and Mike Mondays tackle an obscure Neo Geo CD title

James and Mike returned to the realm of fighting games last week with their weekly "Let's Play" show -- James and Mike Mondays.

This time around, the guys play a very obscure title from the Neo Geo CD library. While the Double Dragon series is known for being a side-scrolling "beat 'em up" game, apparently, a legit fighting game was created that was based upon the 1994 Double Dragon movie.

A movie-based fighting game on the Neo Geo CD doesn't sound promising, but from the look of it the game actually looks fun. James (the Angry Video Game Nerd) goes so far as to say that this title is one of his favorite fighters of all time. Though he isn't a fighting game aficionado per say, James' judgement is solid.

Check out the Double Dragon episode of James and Mike Mondays below.

Miss Power Stone? Skeptical of crowdfunding? Combat Core already has a free alpha version of its game on Kickstarter for you to try right now

Power Stone is a series loved by many that hasn't seen a sequel or even spiritual successor in years. Harkening back to the Dreamcast days, Combat Core aspires to bring that feeling back for $30,000 dollars.

There have been successful fighting games that have been crowdfunded in the past. Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm and Pocket Rumble are the first two that come to mind. With that said, though, neither game has gotten a version into the general market's hands aside from footage or arcade testing.

Combat Core understands that you might desire more than promises to back them, so they've included an alpha version for free on their Kickstarter page. You can decide whether or not you want to back it after you've played it.

I downloaded and gave the alpha a try myself. While it still has some work to be done, I was surprised to be playing a fairly competent version of the game. It definitely showed off its intentions and future. You can have a go at it and back Combat Core by going to its Kickstarter page.

While you wait for the game to download, check out my screenshots and the trailer below.

Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [st] brings character Phonon, new mechanics, balance changes, and more

Arc System Works has revealed a new version of Under Night In-Birth Exe, a fighting game that many have lauded as the perfect bridge between Capcom's footsie-based Street Fighter 4 series and the high stakes, high combo world of anime fighters. Titled Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late [st], the update will include a slew of balance changes, a mechanic that will allow a player at 100 meter in Vorpal to cancel an attack into Veil Off state mid-combo. Also, UNIEL[st] brings a brand new character named Phonon.

There will also be location tests May 22-24th in Tokyo and Osaka. Hopefully, even more information about the game will be revealed then.

While not too much has been revealed about the tweaks to existing characters, we do have some screenshots to share of Phonon. Sporting footless tights, headphones, and a whip, she looks like she may excel at mid to long ranges. Check her out in the images below, then give your predictions on UNIEL's latest character.

Capcom's 2015 fiscal report: Street Fighter 5 launch window confirmed, sales expectations, HD remasters, and more

Capcom has released their plans and strategies for investors concerning the fiscal year. In the 34 page document, Capcom reveals some information relevant to Street Fighter 5 and possibly other fighting game titles.

Under "Consumer -- Strategic Objectives", it states, "Plan to launch more titles in popular game series; one example is "Street Fighter 5". While rumors have been that the latest entry in Capcom's main fighting game franchise would happen sometime this fiscal year (before March 31st 2016), this essentially confirms as much. But, wait! There's more.

The very next page lists Street Fighter 5 alongside "The title related to Monster Hunter" as the only two games under "FY2015 Sales Plan for Major Consumer Titles".

Capcom outlines sales expectations of the game to be around 2 million units. This is important. It means that Capcom expects to sell that many copies by the end of the fiscal year. To do that, they must release it a certain amount of time before that deadline hits to reach the sales figure. We will most likely see the game before March 31st, 2016.

Read below to find out what else was revealed in the report along with images from it.

'Stay hungry to fight hungry!' Going to your first tournament? Gootecks gives 5 tips to make your debut the best it can be

With the Capcom Pro Tour oiled up with $500,000, and a growing arsenal of popular games such as Mortal Kombat X attracting new players to majors, maybe you think it's about time to go out and test your might--and you should! Going to a tournament can be an extremely rewarding experience where you'll make friendships, memories, and rivalries that will last you a lifetime.

But tournaments can be confusing and disheartening if you're not equipped with the right ideas and approaches. That's why CC|Gootecks has offered up 5 tips for you to keep in mind when you go to your first tournament. It should be noted that this advice is useful to more than those that have never gone; maybe you went to your first tournament already, but the experience didn't play out the way you hoped it would.

Some of the advice is logical but often not thought about. Tip number 2 demands that you "eat light throughout the day." With tournaments comes fast food and any other greasy meal that's quick to put you into a digestive coma. Across from my first CEO was a Popeyes Chicken, and too many players (myself included) were running back and forth between the tournament with combo meals full of fried everything. Gootecks suggests keeping to fruits, vegetables, and nuts during the tournament.

To get all 5 of this tournament veteran's tips, check out the video below.
