July 26th, 2018

With Evo right around the corner the Crashtag & Mezza have come to a realization that numbers may not sway in comparison to viewer base of a game as they dive into the official line up of Evolution 2018. As always they talk in the Fighters Corner about game updates that have been sparking the community. Fighter Ex Layer receiving a large sum in pot bonus at Evo 2018 and a patch 1.07 that seems to come with an arcade mode similar to what Capcom did with Street Fighter V.

Namco keeps producing the goods as the sheets are uncovered and out comes Voldo swinging into Soul Calibur 6 but with a new look. Crashtag dives into the new SC6 system mechanics on top of the reveal. Mezza has a slight change of heart when it comes to the revealing of base Goku and Vegeta trailers. Balance patch is in order for Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Crashtag & Mezza come up with some interesting theories on why buffs but not nerfs. As always summer costumes still thriving for Street Fighter V. In the Randoms Of The FGC, Microsoft hints some news on a game.

Ryu is dressed like a Power Ranger. These funny option selects on playing a specific game will have you laughing and agreeing. Last but not least KnuckleDu seems to be ghosting everyone as he gets a new sponsorship. In the Plug & Play DoubleTap team talks Limited Edition Qanba T7 sticks. Gamer Fingerz design some Micro-Switch buttons. Reddit Fight stick section seems to be actually intriguing and the Hori cross connector d-pad is innovate!

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.

I've been playing video games for a while now. I enjoy racing games, RPGs, but spend most of my time with fighting games. My first goal was to get better than my brothers, but now I strive to be better than most while also teaching others.
