Double Tap #52: Welcome to the Jam!

August 16th, 2017

Coming off the Summer Jam XI high, the Double Tap team is back and they have a lot to say this time around. NetherRealms drops StarFire and CrashTag is ready to dig in to the possibilities she holds. Talk of intractable’s wanting to be banned from tournaments, but some say no way! Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite brings us a mock up select screen. Mezza is a no go for some of the basic simplistic look and CrashTag does a run down of the list of characters. Zero looks busted with this heavy zoning and the push blocking mechanics seem rather lenient. Arcsys releases Jubei on August 31st & patch notes follow for the community.

DragonBall FighterZ will contain no cross platform and the team is confused how this is left out. Namco speaks on their Tekken 7 sales passing over 1.66mil. Jecht announced for Dissidia for the beta! Arika Mystery Game got an official Facebook Page and announced Allen Snyder an original Street Fighter concept character. Nintendo has nothing on what these smash 4 players setup for a Bayonetta vs Bayonetta intro. French bread reimburses the community with a late date release in 2017 for American Under Night In Birth Late(st) fighting game.

In the “Randoms of The FGC”, Dragon Ball FighterZ at Gamescom is having a stream! Guilty Gear characters will not be in Blaze Blue Cross Tag battle. Is this good or bad? King of Fighters Destiny Episode 1 and 2 are officially out on Youtube. ┬áJapan steps into another world of high level plays and great moments. Also, CrashTag scored a interview with BrutalAce, the modder of many Street Fighter V and older great mods. No focus attack this time, but the boys got to meet up and that of course leads to a Travel segment! Check out the Summer Jam XI exclusive recap!

Video gaming runs in his blood and competition plagues his mind. From the earliest days in the now extinct arcades, to the eSports competitive scene, he looks forward to the next game to test his skills. No stranger to rising salt levels.

Got his start gaming with his two cousins and brother at his aunts house. They had to always play in secret, but he fell in love with fighting games when he got his first taste of an arcade in Maryland. Now looks to grow the community.
