July 29th, 2020

All three of our hosts are back with a new episode of Double Tap. First off in the Fighters Corner, we take a look at a clue of who the new Samurai Shodown character might be and a Soul Calibur 6 invitational tournament will be happening in the near future. Then, we look at the exciting results of the Capcom Pro Tour East Asia online tournament where a legendary player pulled off an impressive win and Crashtag talks about his experience with Metal Revolution. In the Randoms of the FGC, a prominent Smash player was banned from twitch, and Pokken is free to play for a limited time while Fantasy Strike is completely free to play online. Then, we watch new trailers for 2 arena fighter games. Finally, in the Focus Attack, we dive deep into what might be the announcments coming from the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable and what to expect.

Hosts

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.
