Mortal Kombat 11 Review

A refreshing addition to the series, with beautiful graphics and excellent combat, yet plagued with microtransactions that force you to choose between grinding or paying, as well as lackluster RNG systems.

Fimbul Review

Gorgeous scenery and interesting story are outweighed by tedious combat, stilted gameplay, and a lack of variety in combat.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Review

It looks better than its predecessor, but content-wise its rather stingy and the story needs work, dampening excitement for this title.

Yakuza Kiwami Review

A decent port of a classic, with an outstanding combination of rich story and comedic elements.

ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN Review

A great Ace Combat title that follows its past formula too closely, giving you the great flight simulator you expect and no more.

JUMP FORCE Review

While a fighting game featuring a wide variety of Weekly Shonen Jump characters seems like a no-brainer, the shoddy execution and surprisingly limited roster hinder JUMP FORCE from being the all-star it wants to be.

SOULCALIBUR VI Review

SoulCalibur VI is the latest release in the series that offers plenty of characters to accommodate any playstyle as well as options to create your own fighter. There are two rich story modes along with your typical, more quick-play modes, including Arcade and Versus. In case you’re into RPG aspects, there’s even a mode that somewhat accommodates this.

MY HERO ONE'S JUSTICE Review

Though it is not without its flaws, MHOJ has plenty of appeal both for fans of My Hero Academia and for fans of the genre. All in all well-rounded, the characters and abilities encountered during play compliment each other well and though there are some notably stronger and weaker characters, the fact that you can almost always choose from a selection makes it easy to avoid the not-so-great ones.

NARUTO TO BORUTO: SHINOBI STRIKER Review

Meta: Bandai Namco’s newest fighting title, developed by Soleil Ltd., is quite a bit different from previous Naruto titles—the Ultimate Ninja Storm series is, of course, beloved by many fans of both the game genre and the Naruto franchise. With Shinobi Striker, Bandai Namco has stepped away from the tried and true recipe, with (relatively) great success.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Review

This mostly-stable title is an excellent release for fast-paced fun. Online and offline modes have plenty to offer fans of the fighting genre, including an exciting and funny story.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord: Custom Engine Gets New Features

Creating a custom engine has been one of the most important challenges that TaleWorlds has faced during the development of Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. As it happens with other parts of games development, it is not a straightforward task that you finish and put on a shelf, but an iterative process.

DRAGON BALL FighterZ Review

This fighter looks great, sounds better, having enough depth and complexity to warrant its asking price. Every detail is tended to, which makes fun, challenging gameplay that is easy to learn but hard to master.

DYNASTY WARRIORS 9 真・三國無双 9 Review

DYNASTY WARRIORS 9's gameplay has a relaxed feel that allows you to choose what to spend time on. There’s plenty to explore, missions to complete, and tons of options to customize your character. The only real problem is occasional laggy graphics. If you enjoy the JRPG genre, I certainly recommend getting it.

ARENA GODS Early Access Review

Welcome to the ARENA.... GODS, a title where you use anything and everything at your disposal to beat, slice, smash, stab, and pummel your way to victory. There are no fancy controls or tech skills you need to learn to be proficient at this game: you run, you attack, you roll. Sometimes you win; more often than not, you die. There is nothing keeping you playing in terms of story — because it does not have one — and while the gameplay is simple and fun, it is still simple, meaning that once you have played a few matches, you have experienced all that the Early Access title has to offer.

Fantasy Strike Early Access Interview with David Sirlin

Fighting games are hard to access. The moves, the combos, reading (guessing the opponent's next move) all raise somewhat of a barrier for newcomers. How many times was I pinned down in the corner by Dhalsim, at a loss for how to break out of the combos the other player was laying on me?
