Press continue on 2020? Nah, we’re in full effect with our first show of 2021! We’re gearing up for upcoming news, but in the meantime Mezza and Crash take a look at Anji Mito’s trailer debut for Guilty Gear Strive. Looking very true to his original gameplay, we’re gonna have to wait until February to round out the 15-man roster for Strive. The best Street Fighter costumes don’t even come from a mainstream game!? Street Fighter Duel concept artist has a modern take on the classic rosters that we just can’t look away from.

Tough Love Arena has been jumping on our feeds and we check out what could be a fighter drawn on a piece of paper during study hall. But is it a fighting game at it’s core? Now that 2020 is in our rearview mirror, what can we expected from the FGC in the future for 2021? Will invitationals become more common? Even if offline events can return, will we move away from the progression we’ve had with online events?

Hosts

Andres Mirandes

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.

Jeremiah Ward

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.
