I think for the first half of the show, because I watched and liked Kill La Kill, I was just waiting for that ‘turn’ moment. KLK was one kind of show, and right around when the school conquest arc started, it really escalated into something else. Read more

I tried hard to avoid Dota comparisons, but this all makes me wonder if League could be shifting to a more Dota-ish approach towards cores and supports. The 1-2-3-4-5 farming order make a lot of sense when drafts and compositions are more malleable like they are right now. Read more

Strange, right? Valve does specify “majors” in that statement, but you would think for qualifiers that were specified, they’d still hold it back until at least one of the brief lulls between different region’s open quals.

The short hair definitely made me think it was DmC Dante at first.

Yup, we got confirmation in a press release after the conference that that is indeed Nero.

I mean, Stevie won’t be able to make a single sound to his baby if the power is down either.

There are very few games I don’t want on Switch, but this is definitely one that I think would make a great Switch game. Split Joy-Con multiplayer would be a lot of fun.

Oh dang! I completely forgot about that scene. Going to update the above and then go rewatch the Fusion arc.

Honestly, it’s totally okay to be bad at these games. For years I never touched online or ranked, and was content to just beat the CPU over and over, and still enjoyed a lot of fighting games that way.

Yeah, I definitely got Cell vibes from Vegito. I like them doing something unique with characters like Zamasu, who don’t fight exactly like a normal fighter or have their own quirks. Hopefully that opens the door to some really outlandish concepts in the future. Roshi? Videl/Saiyaman?

Ah, I had a qualifier in there that Unkoe was a stage 3 pickup but it disappeared into the Kinja ether somewhere. Just went back and added it. He’s been good for the team in general, but really works now that they have more teamplay and Aero.

Yes, the stage playoffs are separate from the season playoffs, so stage 4 playoffs are still totally in the picture for Dallas.

The meta is definitely in their favor, but that’s one of a few factors that I think have made the team look a lot more confident and cohesive in their recent matches. Individual players can be great, but teams really shine together and Dallas is playing like a whole team.

He’s from Street Fighter, but he’s a guest character in the newest Tekken, along with a few others like Noctis and Geese Howard.
