I try to make Uncle Sensei proud with less than stellar results. I try to keep my cool and talk about the finer points of Divekick, though it’s hard to when I get exposed as a fraud.
Fraud detected! Though I may be lukewarm on Divekick, that doesn’t mean I can’t provide any useful tips for players looking to be the next Uncle Sensei. Head over to Splitkick for all of the details!
The divekick maneuver is one of the most powerful in all of fighting games. Hurtling down from the skies at a sharp angle, most characters don’t have any sort of tools to deal with them. As such, those with divekicks tend to be some of the strongest. Whether it’s Kung Lao from Mortal Kombat, Cammy from Street Fighter IV, Dr. Doom from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Black Adam from Injustice: Gods Among Us, there’s no shortage of tangible evidence throughout the annals of fighting game history.
This insight is the driving force behind Divekick; a one-move fighting game parody that’s toys with the idea of being accessible to the masses. I’ve been excited to play this game since it’s initial trailer over a year ago and bought it as soon as I could. Having played through it, is the joke actually on me?
Jett and Mat try and make sense of the beating they took at classic Simpson’s trivia night. Ducktales: Remastered is the jumping off point for a discussion on sleeper hit NES games. Also, Jett might be biting off more than he can chew this weekend at Fan Expo.
