Building My Perfect SNES Classic: Part 4

Shortly after my hype subsided from the announcement of the NES Classic, my immediate thought was, “What if Nintendo makes an SNES Classic?!” That system has a special spot in my heart for being a critical part of my gaming life as a 90s kid. It also doesn’t hurt that the games on this console are some of the greatest of all-time.

In this 10-part series, I’ll highlight three games that I would like to see in a hypothetical SNES Classic.

Kickstart Guide to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

(Originally posted on Splitkick with minor edits)

It’s easy to be intimidated by or dismissive of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. With so many characters and projectiles flying around the screen at breakneck speed, it can look like an indecipherable laser light show or mindless button-masher. In reality, it’s one of the deepest, most exciting, and rewarding fighters out there. With its recent port to the PlayStation 4 and the release of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite looming, now’s a great time to play this killer crossover title.

The learning curve is definitely steep, but not insurmountable. With the help of this Kickstart Guide, you’ll hopefully gain a better understanding of the game’s crazier aspects while preparing yourself to take on the world.

Akuma Revealed in Street Fighter V

The Raging Demon is back!

Akuma is primed to make his debut in Street Fighter V as the first character from season 2. So far, I really like how different he plays compared to previous iterations. He moves at a slower and stiffer pace, almost to stress how powerful he is. There are some notable changes to his play style as well, such as the inclusion of a launcher attack.

Looking forward to picking him up later this month!

Thoughts on Pokemon Go’s New Tracker

Pokemon Go New TrackerShortly after the launch of Pokemon Go, the game’s original 3-step tracking solution went down in flames. Apparently, the functionality destroyed Niantic’s servers, and it wasn’t that great to begin with. Out of this epic failure came the rise of third-party tracking apps, such as the now-defunct Pokevision. Months later, Niantic hopes to quell the criticism once and for all with this new tracker.
