Why I Love Guilty Gear’s I-No

Why I Love Guilty Gear’s I-No
Date Published: 22 July, 2017

She might not be the face of the franchise, nor is she necessarily the one that leads the way for the female fighters in the game, however, Guilty Gear’s I-No in my eyes is the embodiment of everything that the Guilty Gear franchise stands for.

With somewhat of a complicated past, and even more of a convoluted backstory, relating to I-No is not something most players find easy, though that has never been a problem for the witch-hat wearing rock star. Continue reading “Why I Love Guilty Gear’s I-No”

The Disconnect Between Smash Brothers and the FGC

The Disconnect Between Smash Brothers and the FGC
Date Published: June 27, 2018

As it pertains to the relationship between the Smash Brothers community and the fighting game community (FGC) I’m confident in saying that as of now, there is no real consensus on where the two stand considering the entire premise of the matter is subjective on the individual as well as the camp they resonate with more.

The State of the FGC in 2018
Date Published On: June 14, 2018

After what could be described as one of the most interesting years in the Fighting Game Community (FGC), 2017 not only delivered great moments and growth, but in hindsight also laid the groundwork for what the FGC in 2018 and beyond may turn into.

Similar to any longtime passionate community or organization, a changing of the guard is an inevitable element that happens, and while the FGC is not known for taking a unanimous count of votes, the sense of change certainly was present in 2017, and the road that the FGC is on in 2018, only further confirmed that same perception.
