October 18th, 2019

We have another full episode of Double Tap this week. Evo Japan announces it’s main game, Smash Bros. Ultimate! But on the same day of the Genesis 7? Basara is live with patch 1.30 and is already looking like a problem. GranBlue Fantasy has rounded out the base roster with Zeta and Vaseraga. We got a lancer and basically a fantasy Juggernaut to the mix. Axl Low brings his long limbs and fire to the new GG 2020 trailer. Riot becomes Riot Games as they step into the FGC world and Crash breaksdown the positives and negatives to come. This week’s Focus Attack may bring a new way to brigde spectators into competitors in the scene.

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.
