Double Tap #57: DLC Cash Cow

October 25th, 2017

Everyone is in a uproar and so is the Double Tap team! CrashTag & Mezza tackle the bigger issues of the Fighting Game Community once again. Before they get to that, they discuss the arrival of Weiss in Blazblue: Cross Tag Battle and how she plays a big roll by being the complete opposite of Ruby. In addition to her announcement, other returning cast members of blazblue Rachel, Hazama, and Noel followed by fan favorite Chie and Waldstein: hailing from their perspective games Persona 4 Arena & Under Night In Birth.

Namco finally announces their MasterCup 9 Next month which is a 5 vs 5 Tekken 7 team tournament. Over 190 teams have entered and Mezza is in shock of how that will run smoothly. NetherRealms has officially dropped Raiden but as CrashTag is not so impressed with another Mortal Kombat character entering the fray. He still has a ban from all tournaments over his head. Namco & Arcsys bring us more amazing content with the newly announced Nappa and Ginyu. More candid screenshots to assure us both characters hold interesting play styles and a confirmed 24 character list.

Team Ninja makes a dynamic return since the summer with new Halloween costumes to fit the times. Capcom forgets what it means to choke as they bring another stone which was won by Cloud805. Stone giving access to a power within tournament. Patch notes have arrived but are they underwhelming? Listen to Mezza dig a hole into the updates, and not only that but the disucssion of Monster Hunter, Sigma, and Black Panthers arrival.

Capcom did not hold back on Downloadable Content as new costumes arrive, “Avenged Army & World Warriors Costume” these packs having some oldies and new combinations of skins. Street fighter V gets a Zeku breakdown by Vesper Arcade as a newly announced character. Sports costumes are here for your favorite lovable characters! Randoms in the FGC get a load of interesting topics from the possible shut down of NeoGaf to Canada Cup Pre-Reg numbers looking better then expected across the board.

The Focus Attack has CrashTag crunching numbers and Mezza screaming Dragonball Z is the answer. Don’t miss the heated controversy over the Z pass DLC. Last as always Mod Highlights come with a pretty fun take on Street Fighter as theJAMK brings us a Funk Menat, Khaledantar666 brings us Emma Frost and a little taste of X4 Armor as a normal skin for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite done by Natsu-Ken.

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.
