Beyond being a platform fighter, Super Smash Bros. is something of a celebration of gaming from over the years as all characters that have appeared on a Nintendo console are fair game for the series. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has every previous Smash character to date and more on its roster, making its character select screen a perfect opportunity at a blast from the past piece of artwork.

A graphic designer who goes by the handle MatttGFX took it upon himself to replace all 84 roster thumbnails with their respective characters' official artwork... some of who are hardly recognizable anymore.

Guilty Gear Strive's newly reduced load times are actually a massive improvement though apparently not for everyone

There's a lot to love about Guilty Gear Strive, but one of the biggest detractors from the game since before launch was just how long it took to actually start playing it.

May was supposed to be weaker after the recent Guilty Gear Strive balance patch, but somehow she's become an even greater menace. While May's Mr. Dolphin special has had its damage scaling increased, this has had an unforeseen effect of increasing the number of wall bounces May can do in a single combo.

This has resulted in insane touch-of-death potential for May in Guilty Gear Strive. Seasoned Guilty Gear pro ANKAA|Latif recently posted a clip that showcased how a May player was able to score a perfect win against him after just a single bad neutral exchange.

Review: Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is an exciting and competitive platform brawler but it needs more development to reach its potential

Since its inception, the Super Smash Bros. series has remained the uncontested king of the platform brawler genre. The series is most notable as a crossover of many different gaming worlds. After the announcement, it was believed that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl could potentially rival the Super Smash Bros. series. Is there any truth to this, or is it all just a meme?

On the release day of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the developers provided me with a review copy of the game. I've been playing platform brawlers since the original Super Smash Bros. 64. I've even played platform brawlers outside of the Super Smash Bros. series like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up. Leading up to its release, I was very curious to see just how legitimate of a platform brawler Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl really was.
