Returning to Rose in Street Fighter V

Rose in the Street Fighter IV series will forever be my muse. When I made my ascendency from fighting game scrub to competent combatant, I did so by honing my skills with this formidable fortune teller. Beyond my personal growth as a fighting game player, I felt a connection so deep with Rose that I felt like it was actually me throwing the fireballs and swinging her magic scarf. Since then, I’ve found main characters in different fighting games that I enjoy playing as, but nothing compares to the bond I have with Street Fighter IV Rose.

That connection was severed as players migrated to Street Fighter V. With her not being a part of that game’s roster, I was forced to fight with someone else. Rashid has been a great ally to me, but it wasn’t the same. Even as the game’s mechanics and character balance were refined over time, a Rose-shaped hole in my heart still existed.

Until now. Welcome back, my friend.

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game Boss Expansion Review

Here come new challengers!

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game Boss Expansion introduces two of the franchise’s most fearsome foes: M. Bison and Akuma. While I can imagine most players of the base game would welcome the addition of new characters – especially these two – they’re sold as part of a larger bundle that may be prohibitively expensive.

Does this box have enough content to justify its premium price tag?

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game Review

The word “miniatures” might appear in the name, but there’s nothing small about Street Fighter: The Miniatures Board Game. From its 3D terrain to its Amiibo-sized pre-painted figures, this game’s table presence is nothing short of formidable. But does this tabletop fighter have the gameplay to match its premium presentation?

Pac-Man 99 Review

Pac-Man has gone viral.

No longer a solitary experience, the latest strain of “Pac-Man Fever” is Pac-Man 99 on the Nintendo Switch. Similar to Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35 before it, the single-player experience of the classic eat ’em up is converted into a battle royale. Does the hungry puck have what it takes to excel in this multiplayer format?
