Parappa takes the Mic: Marvel Vs. DBZ – New Age of Functions

*Picks up mic* Damn, it’s still hot. Man, oh man, what a June. It’s been an eventful month especially for me. What with staying busy & gearing up for the summer in general. For the gaming world, however, we’re digesting what E3 left for us. For the FGC-hold that thought *HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER!*…

Ramblings & Rants: Identity in Fighting Games

Hey y’all. 2Tall back again, coming at you live & direct from the 914. Today, I’m going to talk about identity in fighting games. This is an incredibly relevant topic for any medium.

The Dynamek Perspective: Song & Dance

I don't ask for a lot, brothers & sisters. At least, I don't think I do. So when the time comes for me to gear up for another Dynamek Perspective, only to have my intended plans derailed because of something so utterly ridiculous... it is a bit frustrating. (more…)

Rants & Ravings: Content, Not Controls

Hey there everyone! After a hiatus due to school and whatnot, I’m back again with a writeup on something that has always been the center of much controversy in the FGC. In fact, ever since the days of Street Fighter Alpha, people have railed against how “dumbed down” the new fighting games were getting. Yes,…

The Dynamek Perspective: Bought & Sold

I will straight up be the first person to admit that I'm getting older. Sure, wisdom (usually) comes with age, but wisdom -- more to the point, experience -- is a double-edged sword. When you know what's come before, you tend to have a good idea of what's going to come next... but, as this…
