You can bounce an airborne opponent seemingly indefinitely if they keep shielding in Melty Blood: Type Lumina

Melty Blood: Type Lumina was released not too long ago. Since then, some fans have been emphasizing this feeling that the game leans too heavily towards defense due to the powerful shield mechanic.

In a Twitter clip uploaded by Dsuke10030, it's demonstrated how an airborne character can seemingly be bounced indefinitely if they keep shielding quick attacks. It's a rather silly looking clip.

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.

Have you ever had something in your life that you've seen a bunch, never got the chance to try, but always thought, "I really need to try this at some point because I know I'd love it"?

IGN has put together a video showcase featuring 11 of the best mods out there right now, and yes, Nigel Thornfieri is EXACTLY what you think it is.

One Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl character is banned from Super Smash Con this weekend, here's why

As is usually the case with newly-released fighting titles, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl isn't exactly the most balance of games. This doesn't mean NASB hasn't proven to be tons of fun for those willing to put up with a little infancy jank, but there's certainly a lot of balance work that'll need to be done before the game can be taken fully seriously by tournament goers.

Developers have already rolled out a patch to in an attempt to attend to some of the most egregious issues, (though these changes have yet to hit the Nintendo Switch version of the game) but that isn't stopping the organizers behind Super Smash Con from banning one character from their Fall Fest event this weekend.

Spamming Reptar's fire breath special looks pretty damn strong in this Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl clip

Reptar is the Rugrats universe's version of Godzilla. He's a towering terror that causes destruction with every step, and he's totally awesome.

However, the Spongebob player in this Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl clip probably wasn't thinking the ferocious dinosaur was all that awesome while getting spammed by Reptar's fire breath special move. Watch as the scaly green monster uses the same special over and over again to put Spongebob in a terrible KO situation that certainly makes the move look incredibly powerful.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl match sounds so much better with Spongebob and Patrick's voices dubbed in

While it's undeniable that the brand new Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a ton of fun, fans have been very vocal about the fact that the iconic Nicktoon characters are not backed by the iconic voices we've always known them to have.

Getting the many A-list actors (like Tom Kenny or Bill Fagerbakke) to either record lines or simply lend their pre-recorded voices is surely a tall order that may not fit within time or budget parameters, but the community has already begun to do this work themselves via mods and dubs.
