Double Tap #126: Let’s Make a Local

May 10th, 2019

A little bird said “Let there be locals”, then there were locals for fighting games. CrashTag & Mezza roll down memory lane and take you along for the ride. As they talk about some interesting updates in the fighters corner from Dragonball Fighter Z’s new edition to the family GT Goku and training room features to kick the game into high gear. The guys show hype over the possibilities of Samurai Spirits future and the trailer for Charlotte has them gawking over the overall 2D to 3D changes.

CrashTag talks about the adventures of Mikado arcade and what it brings to the table as an original arcade spot. Netherrealms Mortal Kombat 11 gets more leaks but this time actual character dialogue which could show that these are the official downloadable content in the future. Bruce Campbell who voices Ash from, “Evil Dead” makes a big statement and the team throws their ideas at what this could really mean.

Randoms in the FGC talk about Capcom’s big changes to Combo Breakers leader boards for final sign ups. The team of course rounds off their thoughts and experiences on how to start your own local and even further more with stories of venues and success/failures when doing so. Of course mod highlights are key to any good podcast finish as CrashTag throws some good old Bardock going super Sayian 2 during his level 3.
