Daigo: Ryu is not playable against top tiers, his concept is fundamentally denied in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition
I don't necessarily think that you have to be a world class player to thoroughly examine and understand a game and what potential balance changes would inflict on the meta. People can totally analyze a game without being the best in the world. Literally every other competitive thing has had people make correct analysis on it without being a pro.

Is Street Fighter 5 the most mentally taxing AAA fighting game? Plus how to deal with online hate, Terminator breaks new ground for NRS and more
Although SFV isn't my most favorite game, I'll actually say that at the highest level, it is indeed extremely mentally taxing. I believe this mostly comes in part with how high level the absolute best players in this game have managed to become. Do I believe the game itself is the most mentally taxing? Probably not, I dont even know what I'd list here as certain games stress different aspects. I'll give my biased opinion ...

Capcom announces all new Street Fighter 5 league in Japan; will feature a 3 vs. 3 team format
I'll never understand why something like this or Topanga League won't ever be set up in the US for a state by state basis. The closest we have to this is stuff like King of New York (and I'm not even sure if that's still going on). I'd love for their to be a ranking system for each state, or at least the bare minimum of NY, NorCal, and SoCal having their own ranking or ...

Tekken 7 Season 2 patch notes released
Dang, I was hoping for some changes on his 1, d/b+1, or change/replace his rage drive, but getting extension on his longer pokes and maybe changing some highs to mids more than make up for it. Also really liking some of those Savage stance changes! SS d/b+3 getting more damage and SS d/b+4 getting homing is really really cool to hear! AH, just so many good things for him!

Updated: Possible Killer Instinct Season 4 inbound? Microsoft Studios is holding a live steam next week that 'you'll want to tune into'
Which, like I said, was because of pure luck. DH did not have a great track record before KI and Strider (2014). If you watch old builds of the game, it looked like it was going to be a crap shoot of a game. I remember when they had people from the community like Max and Gootecks playing the oldest playable build and it lacked things like counter breakers, all auto doubles were incredibly slow, ...

Updated: Possible Killer Instinct Season 4 inbound? Microsoft Studios is holding a live steam next week that 'you'll want to tune into'
I honestly hope it is not a new game. For anyone that's been following this KI, you'd know that this game only came out as good as it did was because of pure luck. This game had no right being as good as it did from all parts of MS, DH, and IG. I don't have faith that the same love would be put into a new game since IG wouldn't be working on it. ...

What looked like a weird glitch during Combo Breaker 2018's Killer Instinct top 8 was actually a wild set up
It's funny the excuses people make to not play a game instead of just saying they don't want to play it. >I don't want to buy a Xbox One, I'll wait for a PC port >I don't to play it on Win 10, I'll wait for a Steam port >I don't want to play it on Steam because it's too old now Yet people are more than fine buying the 30th anniversary collection like nothing ...

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's latest balance patch makes big push to tone down anti-air jabs
This is funny because I was just looking at this the other day when I was getting frame data recorded for Killer Instinct and saw the jabs in that game and thought to myself, "What do the jabs look like in SFV to make them work so consistently as anti-airs?" So I booted up some footage of Ryu's jab in S2 and noticed that nothing really about it stood out as a great AA move, ...

Season 3 balance changes for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition
"He gets more utility in neutral with faster fireballs (while in V-Trigger 1)*" He does not get buffed fireballs outside of V-Trigger besides EX. It's nice that it starts up faster but I'm sure Ryu mains would have appreciated those 2 frames being taken off of that move be from recovery instead.

Happy fourth birthday Killer Instinct; full game, with all characters, currently available on Steam for just $19.99
You do know that the game literally did exactly what you said each season, right? The only thing they didn't do was call each version Super Edition or whatever. Each season of KI not only added new characters but introduced new system mechanics that had substantial gameplay changes for the entire cast and complete rebalancing of the roster. Each of these seasons were also completely free if you just wanted the upgrades to the system ...
