Do we still need physical media?
For years, we have always bought games on cartriges, discs, magnetic cards, floppy disks, I mean I think the source code for Pong is still available somewhere on a stone tablet. But do we still have to do it this way?
Class is in session.
French Fighting game player Kayane recently announced that would start a new project in Paris called “Kayane Academy”, where she would teach fundamental skills that could be applied most fighting games (and for free, no less). Her motive behind this admirable gesture is simple: bring in new players the competitive scene desperately needs. If Kayane is willing to teach new players in France, why can’t other players teach in the rest of the world and grow the fighting game community?
This could possibly be the essential pulse to keep things lively (or not). Straight talk from your boy, Dayashathirsts!
So Capcom shocked the interwebs, and well, the entire fighting game community overall by revealing a new feature for Ultra Street Fighter 4. At long last, players can finally experience their dream matchups by selecting their preferred characters from any of the previous version of Street Fighter 4.
Victory emerges from the madness.
In February, a cruel yet fun experiment called “Twitch Plays Pokemon” took Pokémon Red Version and allowed the public to control one character. When a massive group of people are playing one single player game, madness is bound to ensue. But from that madness came progress. This morning, the effort of hundreds of thousands of players earned a victory over the Elite Four and the Blue, thus completing the game.
That Metal Gear Solid-related gear costs how much?!?!?
While we know most fans are willing to sacrifice leg and limb to own practically whatever type of paraphernalia in existence, there are some limits. Such is the case with the new Metal Gear Solid shoes, jacket, and yes. . .there’s a badass watch to go with it. More after the jump.
Pew, pew, pew!
Our resident indie game specialist goes hand on with the all-new Constant C, developed by IGS (International Games System). It’s a sweet new title that came out for Xbox 360 and Adrian Valdez (aka Atrain gives us the full report).
More individuals need to keep an open mind.
As I browse the web, I can’t help but notice reputable sites like IGN, Forbes, and Gamespot, I can’t help but notice “reputable” and other sites out there speak on how the PS4 has sold 5.4 million units, how the Xbox One can’t output 1080p and 60fps. While, I think its clear that I am more on the side of Microsoft; mainly because its an American product which I think most people [in my circle] forget, I am NOT oblivious to the amazing product that Sony has.
But, It amazes me how desperate people (blogs, websites, etc etc) are quick to point out sales numbers and other info on a console (XB1) that is only in 13 territories for now!
