The fighting game community (FGC) has grown from holding local events to smaller venues to occupying ballrooms at four-star establishments with talent from all across the globe attending. Major sponsors such as Capcom, Namco Bandai, and others are responsible for the development of some of the world’s most famous franchises in gaming, and are showcased at a central tournament featuring the top fighting talent from across the world. With major prizepools, fighting games are now reaching a platform that can be compared to traditional eSports.

Each week, I’ll be posting interviews I’ve had the pleasure of conducting with members of the fighting game community. The interviews will touch upon their history in the FGC, where they got their start, and what they’d like to see from video games in general.

This week’s guest is the man I’m always trying to stomp, Tylen Hinson aka AK | EliteGoomba. (more…)

Unlike previously reported by me last year, the west will be getting The Witch and the Hundred Nights this coming March in 2014. It seems I was a bit over excited before and confused the Japanese release date with the western one. To my understanding, the game has never been delayed. The game which was released in Japan this past summer is a PS3 title. Focusing on marsh witch Metallia and her hundred knights she can summon, Kotaku compared the gameplay to the likes of classic Zelda adventures from the NES and SNES era. However you’ll be using combos and special attacks, leveling up, and many fun things we’ve come to love about NIS games.

NIS has tried many different gameplay concepts from tactical in the past in it’s classic tactical Disgaea setup to the roguelike adventure found in Z.H.P. and The Guided Fate Paradox. The Witch and the Hundred Knights seems to be quite different than their other top down games such as ClaDun X2 and Legasista however. I haven’t had any hands on time yet, so I’m not positive about how damage occurs in relation to those two action titles, but the areas are seemingly an actual world to explore rather than random dungeons.

We’ll definitely be keeping up to date on this title and looking forward to the upcoming release.

Anytime Nintendo launches a new Zelda title it’s a big deal. No matter the time or the system that the game is on every Nintendo and Zelda fan is excited. This time is no different.

There has been no shortage of Zelda games since the series launched on the NES way back in 1986 (1987 in North America). The newest game will be the fifteenth game in the series and the first original title to appear on the Nintendo 3DS. Perhaps the favourite and most celebrated title of the Zelda series is A Link to the Past, the third in the series and only game to appear on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. This newest game, A Link Between Worlds, is a sequel to that game.

Two worlds collide in the all-new adventure set in the world of Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this game, Link transforms into a living painting to cross into a dark, parallel dimension mirroring Hyrule.
