Street Fighter V Beta and Fantasy Strike Alpha thoughts

A few weeks ago was a fantastic fighting gaming weekend for me with a new alpha build of Fantasy Strike hitting, AND getting access to the Street Fighter V beta on PC and, luckily, I had the spare time to play for hours too. First of all, SFV. Although I was able to play SFV briefly before … Continue reading

SFV – Are fighting games finally catching up with Halo from 2004?

Better late than never. This stuff from “Capcom Fighters Network” for Street Fighter V looks really great :-)  

The road to Saikyo

My epic Dan USF4 adventures have been on a bit of a hiatus recently due to generally not having much time to play, and when I did, being really tired or just generally playing rather poorly. I think my PP dipped to around 500 at the nadir of this… But perhaps inspired by watching EVO … Continue reading

Fantasy Strike Fighting Game Pre-Alpha thoughts

Agoners just got our hands on the very first build of the new simple Fantasy Strike Fighting Game thanks to being a Patreon of Sirlin currently. Don’t know what the FSFG is?… Check out our Agonisers #1 podcast and links on that for all the background info about this game. We played it local 1v1 battles … Continue reading

The most important game at E3 2015…

Just wanted to put a note up here about how intrigued I am about news for Montana 16 from this years E3. There’s so many rumours and ridiculous conjecture about this game that I don’t want to get into. But the very possibility of a quality American Football game for the first time since All-Pro … Continue reading

Competitive Gaming Round-Up

A few interesting tidbits have been around lately of interest to agoners. The biggest one is the excellent competitive card game Yomi finally coming to Steam on May 8th. Whilst I’ve played this game tons already in it’s web version and it’s physical form, this is still a huge deal as it will have much … Continue reading

Do Something! with Dan Hibiki

Do Something! Well, I did. With Dan, of course. First up is an long battle vs a fairly typical run-away-ish Gouken player. A pretty even fight until I unleashed the secrets of Saikyo-ryu. This guy has actually beaten me a few times too. What an incredible finish – why oh why did he throw that … Continue reading

Back for more Dantics!

(For how this all got started, read here) Omatase shimashita saikyo fans! I’ve still been playing Dan whenever I’ve been on USF4 lately. But I hadn’t had any especially good matches for a while that were post-worthy. As my ranking’s been rising I’ve been having some really close fought battles and I’ve been edging closer … Continue reading

Kore ga saikyo-ryu da!

I’ve written a lot before about some of the issues I’ve had over the years when it comes to Street Fighter 4 – and these days I’d add that I really don’t like the later-discovered flaws in the engine like plinking, and I have an insane hatred of near universal defensive option selects like ‘crouch-tech’. The … Continue reading
