Double Tap #144: Basara or Basura?

October 11th, 2019

We got a full course meal of FGC goodness on this week’s episode of Double Tap. Samurai Shodown gets a new patch and new challenger Basara gets a trailer. Looks like everybody is seeing buffs especially Wu to get more competitive play. Arny is out in full force and we breakdown what variations are the most promising. Haven’t had a chance to play The Terminator or Jason? Netherrealm has you covered with a free weekend which includes access to the Skynet agent himself. Soul Calibur has its world invitational getting closer with a LCQ as well. We are t-minus 3 days before the next Guilty Gear trailer and we take as much time as a trailer to talk what Static and Crash want to see. The U.S. is the first team named for the Intel Open in Street Fighter V. Ono has some announcements that we might finally see some content and a slew of new characters real soon, can someone say Super Street Fighter V? We have a packed Randoms for you too large to list but everything from game bundles to some of the best GG content Crash has seen. Also Crash details the way he helps a fresh face to the FGC work on their execution. How do you get it down packed?

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.

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.
