When I first laid my eyes on Titanfall’s debut trailer, I was left with my mouth gaped in absolute awe.  I had wanted a game that embodied the true spirit of giant mech combat while not being limited to being exclusively inside one, like Armored Core.  I bought my Xbox One just to play Titanfall and I was not disappointed by what Respawn Entertainment delivered, not in the least.  I was anxiously awaiting Titanfall 2 and it was announced this year!

I recently played the Multiplayer Tech Test that they held which is supposedly a “Pre-Alpha” build of the game (which makes no sense since it is coming out in October, only 2 months from now).  I was left absolutely disappointed by what I experienced and all of my hype faded away instantly.
How did things go so wrong?

The King of Fighters XIV is the next iteration within the famed SNK series that is renowned and loved around the world.  Their previous title, The King of Fighters XIII, was a brilliant game whose flame died too early, mainly because of the difficult execution, abysmal netcode, and dwindling player base because of these two reasons.

Making the leap that other modern day fighters have taken to 2.5D, creating a simpler system for newcomers, and improving their netcode, will SNK finally have what it takes to come out on top?  Check out the full review after the jump to see!

You all know from my previous article how devout I have been to Arc System Work’s Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-.  I am dedicated to becoming one of the best Elphelt Valentine mains and I have currently been doing a lot better.  This article is set to outline exactly why I am feeling more that way and why those things currently trying to hinder my progress will not be allowed to have their way.

Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- came out only a few months ago, the latest iteration of Arc System Works’ famed fighting game series known as “Guilty Gear”.  -REVELATOR- comes after Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- and provided some tweak and balance changes, but still very familiar for those who played -SIGN-…yet I did not have a Playstation 4 to play the first one.

This editorial focuses on my current struggles that exists trying to become competent with Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-.  Whether it is trying to learn character specific combos, converting off of stray hits, or simply learning how to properly apply the neutral game.

Boku no Hero Academia was supposedly one of the best anime of the season.  I had heard many good things about it, I had even seen the fan manga of the current giants of shounen manga passing the torch to the protagonist.  However, I had never actually read any Boku no Hero Academia and had not gotten around to watching the anime as of yet.

Finishing the anime about this 13 episode anime about Michidoriya, a boy who dreams to be a hero but does not have a quirk, I have quite a few things to say about it.  To check out the action packed, hero-oriented review of Boku no Hero Academia, be sure to click the jump and check it all out!

Lately I have been really into Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-, it becoming one of my favorite fighting games because of the visuals, play style, and fierce competitive game play.  Also, I recently switched my main from Jam Kuradoberi to Elphelt Valentine for various reasons; aesthetics, beauty of the combos, and overall presentation of the character.  Due to me loving the character so much, I decided to go ahead and make my second combo video (ever), “Waifu Gotta Shotgun!”.

Inside you will find the combo video itself, details on why I picked Elphelt Valentine out of all the Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-, and notations for every single combo performed in the video!

 NOTE  – Be sure to check out my review for Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR-!
