Core-A Gaming posts fun videos that make fighting game concepts easier to understand. The one I’ve posted here explains what makes a move too powerful by breaking down properties of hitboxes, frame data, and even hitstun.

Wave – Meowvel vs Catcom

Friday, August 26th, 2016 at 6:23 pm | Image

Today I present the cast of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 as cats from Chi’s Sweet Home. I actually met Wave last weekend at Matsuricon, and she was showing off plenty more cat parodies.

Ultimate Meowvel vs Catcom 3
The original only had the vanilla Marvel vs Capcom 3 cast, then it got updated with the DLC characters and the new characters from Ultimate. The original was my wallpaper for a while in the dark ages before this blog.

Dear Catcom–err Capcom
After vanilla Marvel vs Capcom 3, Wave did another one with characters she wanted to see added to the game. That's why the Strider Hiryu, Frank West, Phoenix Wright, and Doctor Strange cats are here too.

Commission – More Meowvels

Hyper Catinel Force
I kinda want to make this my avatar now.

Prof.Sakamoto makes soundtracks to imaginary NES games. He’s nailed the sound of a classic RPG, a space shooter, and couple days ago, a ninja action game. I hope someday he’ll follow in Jake Kaufman’s footsteps and work on an actual game.

Look at the bands I listen to. I’m not picky. If they’ve got heavy riffs, serious skills, catchy melodies, and good variety, I’m in. Posting your entire album online helps too. Serbian rock band Destiny Potato hits on all sixes. Potatoes gonna potate.

GeekNights – Pokemon Go: Initial Thoughts

Thursday, July 28th, 2016 at 3:30 am | Audio

Pokémon GO is getting my whole groups of my friends outside with Pokévision on their phones. That’s great, but as GeekNights podcast explains, there isn’t any skill or strategy in the game right now. Everything is a grind that takes exponentially longer as you go on. Battles are won by whoever has spent the most time playing the game, and that’s not going to change when more features are added. At least Ingress has teamwork going for it. Watch out for Team Rocket?

I almost made a post without an image or a video in it. This post would have looked weird without one. Always be aware of your surroundings, folks.
