What Happened to Character Loyalty?

What Happened to Character Loyalty?
Date Published: 5 October, 2018

The term “Main Character” refers to a fighting game character associated most often with a specific fighting game player. The main character is also thought of as the player’s best character, at least on paper.

Throughout the short, but rich history of the FGC, certain players have become almost synonymous with certain fighting game characters and be it tournament or casual setting, that tradition affected a major part of the FGC, which almost set a precedent for how matches were played.

Date Published: 27 September, 2018

Fighting games are played in many ways and two of the most common ones are read-based gameplay and reaction-based gameplay. Therefore, I attempt to break down the theory behind both and explain the positive and negatives of these two different, yet complimenting playstyles.

  • How talent factors into fighting games

Why I Love Persona 4 Arena’s Labrys
Date Published: 17 September, 2018

Despite not technically being a legacy character in the Persona universe, Labrys’ debut to the series is quite the memorable one. On the surface, Labrys is perhaps looked at as “Just another android in a school uniform”. However, as the main focus of the original Persona 4 Arena, Labrys proved she is no ordinary robot-girl.

Although she makes it clear she abides by many rules that include decency, respect, and of-course, righteousness.

The MacSplicer Podcast #44 – A Potentially Dangerous Time for the FGC

This week’s podcast has a bit of a different tone as I express my concern for where the fighting game community is possibly heading if the games that comprise it continue to go down the path of sacrificing depth for accommodating newer players.

Topics on this week’s show include:

  • Sacrificing depth in fighting games and its potential consequences

 

The MacSplicer Podcast #43 – Tekken 7 Season 2, Arc System Works’ Circuit and Future Games

I’m back from moving apartments and getting over a summer flu and with a month gone, I figured why not recap everything I have missed within the FGC and the fighting game landscape.

Topics on this week’s show include:

  • Arc Revolution Cup World Tour
  • Arc System Works’ future direction
  • Tekken 7 Season 2
  • SFV:AE‘s Sagat and G
  • Future plans
