Double Tap #164: 2020 is Cancelled
New samurais hit the mix with Haohmaru and Sogetsu this week. GranBlue has been live for a few weeks. Which characters reign supreme currently? COVID-19 takes one of the FGC's biggest events down....
Quarantined Crash and Bubble Boy Mezza are back in this week’s episode. Even though we have no majors to go to, that hasn’t stopped developers from dropping trailers and balancing these games. Smash Bros. is extending it’s hand to ARMs as the first franchise announced in the upcoming Fighters Pass 2. No news on a date, but who do you want in the game? Soriz explodes on the scene with his gameplay trailer for GBVS with a fury of fists and shortage of pants. Haouhmaru unsheathes a gameplay trailer as well in SC6 with his blade coming out next week. Millia and Zato “glow” up in their latest trailer but seems like there are possible system changes within the trailer. AWS might be hinting to things before their closed beta. More characters have dropped and a slew of patches to help keep pass the time in the lab as we cover it in this week’s episode.

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.
CD Project Red is sorry and says they'll do better, Lucasfilm Games is doing better in sharing the Star Wars license, and fan sites need to do better in speculating on trademarks.
We finish up Act 1 with The Heist, meet Claire, learn about Rogue, and meet T-Bug for the first time before infiltrating Konpeki Plaza.
This week we recap the Maldraxxus portion of the campaign and talk about the great characters you meet, like Marileth, Vashj, Emeni, and more!
Happy New Year! We're making somewhat educated guesses about what lies ahead in 2021 for Final Fantasy XIV! Also we goof off a lot in this one. It's fun!
