Señor Footsies - a 2D, two attack button fighter focusing mainly on ground fighting and spacing

Two pancho-wearing bandits meet up in a desolate desert to engage in a duel to the death. What better way to settle their differences than by playing footsies?

Game developer Luke "A-Rival" Esquivel created a simplistic 2D fighting game entitled Senor Footsies in which players battle for spacing with the use of only two attack buttons and successfully landing one attack will win you the round. Hitting one attack button will give you a fast low kick and hitting two simultaneously will cause the player to perform a sweep.

By default, each character walks backward at all times and holding the Walk button will allow you to move forward and advance on your opponent. This game also retains a super meter that build when you whiff attacks and rewards you with a shot from your pistol once the bar is full.

You can check out footage of this 2D, footsie heavy fighter below and be sure to check out Maxwell McGee's interview with A-Rival over on GameSpot for a full breakdown of Señor Footsies.

Team Ninja currently taking fans' balance update suggestions for next Dead or Alive 5 patch, timing and contents still being considered

Team Ninja currently taking fans' balance update suggestions for next Dead or Alive 5 patch, timing and contents still being considered Team Ninja has been quite active on Twitter lately posting about the next Dead or Alive 5 update. Through multiple Tweets they have given some insight on the steps taken when working on an update and are encouraging fans to leave their suggestions for what balance changes should be made.

Listed as directions 1 - 4, below you can check out the steps Team Ninja takes when working on completing an update.

Direction 1: As a rule, we are not going to do anything that makes all of your practice up to now pointless. We will only tweak things we feel are absolutely necessary.

Direction 2: We will balance aspects we feel are not fair. Moves that are way too strong or which have strange motion, etc. Bug fixes are included in this consideration.

Direction 3: We will not change the concept and importance of keeping each character's individuality. Rather than kill personality to make everyone the same, we'll strengthen the weak characters to make a fair fight

Direction 4: I will tweet questions about certain aspects to get your feedback. We will consider your responses carefully when we make our final decisions.

Dead or Alive 5 Sarah threshold skip glitch by EMPER0RC0W

EMPER0RC0W has recorded footage of an odd glitch that is now present in Dead or Alive 5 after the recent patch. When Sarah hit's her downright P+K on a stunned opponent, it is supposed to result in a launch. Instead of doing so, the attack keeps the opponent grounded and resets the threshold meter, which is not supposed to happen.

Below is a bit from EMPER0RC0W about this glitch.

Sarah's ↘P+K should launch in stun. But, in this situation its causing a glitch which resets the threshold meter. This also seems to happen when you follow up Sarah's →P+KPK with ↘KK. If you notice, Sarah reached critical threshold twice in this combo which should not normally happen.

IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Gen Fu guide

IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Gen Fu guide IGN returns with another extremely detailed Dead or Alive 5 guide this time for Gen Fu. This guide is divided into many different sections and includes video examples for further reference.

Much like the previous guides for Sarah Bryant and Tina, this one is written is extremely detailed and is a great read if you're looking to learn Gen Fu.

Here is a bit to get you started.

On the surface, Gen Fu can seem like a limited character to the uninitiated. He relies heavily on mid punches, making him potentially predictable, and while many of his moves have decent speed, many others are unsafe or just not that fast. Many people pick him up out of curiosity, only to drop him shortly after for a character with more flash and a more varied looking striking game.

That's their loss. Gen Fu is thoroughly excellent in ways that are less obvious, but more devastating than your average character. While his best attack strings consist almost entirely of mid punches, he can alter their timing more dramatically than any other character can. Combined with the many moves of his that crush high attacks, he can score counter hits easily, which lead to some of the longest stuns in the game.
