Hitboxes

Hits low, impossible to punish on reaction, and also cancellable. A normal should be fast, long range, or high priority, but never all three. This one's all three and more.

Unfair regional pricing makes DNF Duel, JoJo’s and Capcom Fighting Collection tough sells

How much is too much to pay for a videogame? The old wisdom is more than $20, but it’s probably fair to draw the line when a game is seven times more expensive in your region compared to competing titles. With Capcom Fighting Collection, DNF Duel and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R all on the way one thing has become clear – they are all far too expensive to buy in international markets at local currency. Let’s go over the numbers.

CEO 2022 Preview

The FGC hits sunny Daytona Beach, Florida for CEO 2022 and all the hits are here for your viewing pleasure this weekend. Starting this Friday, June 24th we’ve got 3 whole days of fighting game action with a healthy mix of old and new so let’s talk about schedules and streams right here.

FOOTSIES — fighting games, distilled

According to Infil’s superb fighting game glossary, “footsies” is defined as:

“A complicated, often nebulous term that refers to the battle for controlling the space in front of you, often by using good pokes. In essence, you are trying to get to a range you like, while trying to deny your opponent getting to a range that they like. How you do this varies wildly based on the game, but it often involves using strong crouching kick attacks to pester your opponent as they are trying to walk around. This dance of playing mind games with your feet is the source of the term’s name.”

All fine and dandy. Playing footsies means measuring the space between you and your opponent, while trying to slowly, but surely, find an opening and keep them at a range where your options are better than theirs. What, one might ask, happens when someone takes this concept and builds a whole game around it? Well, the result is FOOTSIES — Rollback Edition, developed by HiFight, also known for his extensive coverage of fighting game tourneys and just-frame analysis of key matches!

Super Bout: Champion’s Tour – a 2D, 8-bit Virtua Fighter experience

If you ever wondered how it feels to play a 2D Virtua Fighter game, Super Bout: Champion’s Tour is exactly the game for you. It feels like a legitimate 3D fighter experience but flattened on a surface, down to its control system (Punch, Kick, Guard), the methodical spacing, emphasis on getting frame advantage and on juggling the opponent for large damage. There are very few links, most of which on counter attack, and low attacks are a luxury, more than the rule—useful for getting out of a pinch or having some decent frame advantage, but generally incapable of starting combos, except for a few outliers.

Super Bout is a game that fans of 3D fighter will definitely be able to enjoy, all for less than the price of a coffee.

MultiVersus Closed Alpha Impressions

This past week I’ve had the opportunity to partake in a closed alpha test of MultiVersus so I’ll be sharing my thoughts and feedback based on my experience with it. I played the entirety of the test on a PC. If you’re unfamiliar, MultiVersus is an upcoming platform fighter with an emphasis on “doubles” or 2-vs-2 format. The character roster draws from the IPs of publisher Warner Bros, so Bugs Bunny and Taz can trade blows with Superman and Wonder Woman among others. The game is scheduled to enter open beta in June and will be entirely free-to-play and supports cross-play with all target platforms (PC via Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Playstation 4 & 5.)
