P4U2 Player Analysis – The Patient Defender
Date Published: 11 November, 2018

Defense is the emphasis on this iteration of Player Analysis as I take a look at how patience and being confident in defending is sometimes just as much of an advantage as being confident in attacking.

Why I love Persona 4 Arena’s Sho Minazuki

Why I Love Persona 4 Arena’s Sho Minazuki
Date Published: 5 November, 2018

Although he somewhat operated behind the scenes in the Persona universe for quite some time, the reveal of Sho Minazuki was one that finally put all of the pieces of the narrative puzzle together.

The violence seeking, pun master isn’t the most recognizable character in the series, but his impact as a villain both in arrival and exit was one great enough that actually triggered cooperation of both members of S.E.E.S. (Persona 3) and the Investigation Team (Persona 4). Continue reading “Why I love Persona 4 Arena’s Sho Minazuki”

P4U2/Tekken 7 Player Analysis – Reads vs Reactions

P4U2/Tekken 7 Player Analysis – Reads vs Reactions
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.

Why I Love Persona 4 Arena’s Labrys

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. Two things are for certain when it comes to Labrys, she does not tolerate anyone who hurts her friends, and her strong character stacks up to just about anyone’s.

Why I Love Persona 4 Arena’s Yu Narukami

Why I Love Persona 4 Arena’s Yu Narukami
Date Published: September 4, 2017

There isn’t anything fancy about him, relatively speaking, everything about Yu Narukami points to him being a fairly generic character. He’s not a physical specimen, nor a speed demon, nor does he hold an unorthodox fighting style.

Frankly, he’s not much for even opening up his personality if not bothered to. However, what makes Narukami such an icon within the Persona universe, as well as fighting games, is his calm and collected demeanor, combined with a traditional yet effective katana based fighting style.

The State of the FGC in 2017

The State of the FGC in 2017
Date Published: 
May 22, 2017

The Fighting Game Community (FGC) has experienced quite the change as of recent years, with 2015 perhaps having some of the most memorable moments in the competitive landscape, and 2016 elevating the exposure of fighting games primarily due to increased marketing and financial support from Sony and Capcom in regards to the release of Street Fighter V.

While we’re only at the midpoint of the year, how things play out in the second half of 2017, could very well be a tell on what the future holds for the FGC. Therefore, it would be a good time to take a closer look at the fighting games that headline the FGC in 2017, and how they impact the landscape, be it for better or for worse.
