Many videogames that are really popular these days are team-based online competitive games - Call of Duty, Halo, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, and on and on.

If you remember my last replay round-up from my SFV games, I thought I was going to main Guile once he got released, and well... I tried.

But this did a little bit more than get me back into the mood for playing fighting games- it got me thinking about them as well. One of my favourite topics is the … Continue reading Their Flukes, Your Drops, and Yourself.
I've written some really positive stuff about SFV earlier when I got my first real in-depth play of it back in beta 2, and also some of my more recent concerns from beta 4 as we get nearer to the full launch.
