Double Tap #116: Mechanics 101

February 15th, 2019

Fresh off the Nintendo Direct, we got some Smash news that isn’t a joke. Looking at spring for next big update. Ed Boon and Valve are beefing. Not really, but there’s been some new info on the characters coming to MK11 via some Steam Database mining. Some newly polished armor is making it’s way to Soul Calibur 6 with some new DLC. A new SFV has been shown off, and he apparently controls time. Capcom has a few words on the new fighter for the new Season (JK). Got some new pickups for EchoFox?!? The Street Fighter V story isn’t finished from what Capcom UK has to say. StaticGorilla geeks out on a new Spotify playlist for all the nostalgic memories. Footsies at Evo Japan, and we dive into some Mechanic 101 lessons on this week’s Focus Attack. Oh, and we have an very well done mod from one of the regular suspects.

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.
