FGC Full Movie

The FGC: Rise of the Fighting Game Community documentary film was actually released a couple of years ago, but you had to pay to watch it. Now, it’s available to watch for free — yes, the whole thing, the whole hour and fifteen minutes of it — on YouTube. It was put together by Esteban Martinez from Hold Back to Block (HBTB), who is already known for conducting some of the best interviews the FGC has ever seen.

Check it out below and venture into the journey of “pro” fighting game players, just in time for this year’s Evo.

SFV Hype: Balrog Trailer Reveals Juri and Urien

Balrog Street Fighter V

I know. It’s been way too long since I’ve posted here, but I finally picked up Street Fighter V on the PC and I’ve been grinding it out with Guile. Still got a lot to learn, but it looks like I picked up the game just at the right time. The update being pushed out this Friday (which misses June by just one day) will not only add Ibuki to the roster, but it’ll also bring Balrog (Boxer) into the fray. MY FIGHT MONEY!!!

The trailer pretty much speaks for itself. It looks like the V-Trigger lets you pile out the punches similar to Guile’s V-Trigger booms, creating an almost Super-like continued dash? And the Critical Art looks like a one punch. The headbutt is “back” as the V-Reversal and the V-Skill is the spin to dodge fireballs. Check it out and watch to the end. Juri and Urien are revealed with a couple of sneak peeks at what they can do.

And yes, both Ibuki and Balrog are 100% legal for EVO. Get hype. This trailer was shown at the end of CEO 2016 where Tokido finally broke the Infiltration curse with some serious parries. He even reset the bracket and finished it off with a perfect. God-like Murderface!

Oh and if you’re looking for a few matches with my scrubby self, look for me on the Capcom Fighters Network as HadoukenOnline, which is the same as my Steam ID.

Akuma Revealed for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution

Akuma Revealed in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution Trailer

This isn’t quite the Tekken X Street Fighter that we’ve been promised from Bandai Namco, but it’s the closest thing we’re going to get for the foreseeable future. And it’s not such a bad thing. A new official trailer video was unleashed upon the world for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution and it reveals a big part of the story for the Tekken universe. Akuma is going to hunting for some devilish Mishima men.

The art style here looks pretty freaking epic and it really could put Street Fighter V to shame. It will be interesting to see how the game balancing handles the new dynamics that a Street Fighter shoto, and especially one as demonic as Akuma (Gouki), to fit within how Tekken normally plays. Will everyone just keep sidestepping fireballs? Can he still do an air fireball? One thing we do know for sure: he’s got the raging demon.
