ARMS Gets a Second Wind Thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Having sold north of 2 million units and still standing as one of the best-selling titles on the Nintendo Switch, ARMS doesn’t necessarily need a new lease on life. Nevertheless, it’s getting one. With a yet-to-be named ARMS character being included as part of the season 2 Fighter Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, an open online tournament, and free trial available now on the eShop, ARMS is relevant again and I’m so happy for it.

Ranking the Street Fighter V Season 2 Characters

After season 1 of Street Fighter V‘s DLC offering brought back six familiar faces, season 2 made a bold move by only bringing back one legacy character. The remaining five slots went to newcomers.

Zeku Revealed in Street Fighter V

Capcom has unveiled the final season 2 DLC character and his name is Zeku. Last seen as an NPC in one of Guy’s endings in the Street Fighter Alpha series, he brings with him a handful of Guy’s signature attacks, as well as a few tricks of his own. In particular, make note of Zeku’s long-ranged sweeping kicks.

I’m…a bit disappointed in this reveal. Maybe my expectations were too high, as I’ve followed the rumors for months and expected more out of an evolution of Guy’s play style. This looks a bit too samey in terms of how he fights in comparison to Guy, as well as how similar his play style is relative to the rest of the cast.

Nevertheless, he may surprise me when he’s released at the end of the month. Fingers crossed!

The Walking Dead: Season 2 – Episode 1: All That Remains Review

Season 2 of The Walking Dead video game puts you in the shoes of Clementine. Despite being a little bit older and painfully aware of the world around her, she’s still very much a child. This is the theme that drives episode 1 and will likely carry through the season if she manages to make it through. After playing through the events from All That Remains, I really hope she does make it through.
