VesperArcade also put some thoughts along these lines … Continue reading The case against powerful new DLC characters in fighting games
Since the netcode in SFV has been coming up as a hot topic again, I thought I ought to make a post to reference this, as this information is very hard to find.

"Hmmm" I thought, and I wondered if they were actually … Continue reading That feeling when the streamer gets streamed!

Whilst the neutering of invincible reversals was a bit of an odd … Continue reading Street Fighter V Season 2 – The Best Bipson Months?
