Ever wanted to learn how to get good at fighting games? Well here are some tips!
Fighting games can be some of the most intimidating games out there. Whether it was back in the arcades where every victory relied on your hard earned money, or today where playing online unprepared can lead to some embarrassing losses. Though a tough nut to crack, fighting games can also be extremely rewarding.
Everybody was Kung-Fu Fighting!
MIA is back for a new season after the 2013 MIA champ was crowned. We let you, the PixlBit community decide on what the season’s first MIA spotlight would be. Your decision was the dark horse candidate Jade Empire. A game that practically no one on staff has played.
Worst company in America? Hardly.
EA has been in the news a lot lately, and it’s been pretty much all negative. Between the advent of the Online Pass, the botched launch of SimCity, and the appearance of micro transactions in full retail games like Mass Effect 3 and Dead Space 3, it’s really easy to dump on the company. I’m not here to do that, though. I have a complicated relationship with EA; one that moved from hate to love to apathy. So turn down the nerd rage for five minutes, because I’m about to present a different opinion on what a vocal minority consider to be the most hated company in America.
Without Sega's competing BLAST PROCESSING, it's just not the same.
If you were paying attention yesterday during Nintendo’s "Nintendo Direct" address, you might’ve noticed a common theme undercutting the entire broadcast. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest properties put on display: Yoshi’s Island 3, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, The Legend of Zelda (A Link to the Past 2), Earthbound, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, which saw a change in visuals/perspective that makes it even closer in style to its spiritual predecessor, Super Mario RPG . Maybe it’s just me, but this line-up is conjuring up some strong memories of the SNES.
This is one obvious labor of love, or possibly insanity.
I'm a big fan of a lot of the stuff gamers post to YouTube, especially when they post something that they've created on their own. I've spent hours checking out covers of mega man music, humorous game commentary, and people breaking games for fun. I've even thrown my own hat into the ring recently with my own video, but never in a million years did I see this coming
Errbody inna arcade get tipsy!
This is a video game site, and you are a video game fan, but sometimes it’s important to look at games that have no video at all. These games appeal to players for the same reasons we pump thousands of dollars into our hobby and can give us great insight into some fundamentals of the latest modern console releases. Mechanical games are still around, mainly spitting out tickets at Chuck E. Cheese’s, but I want to explore some classics too. Whenever possible I plan to look at some of these games and discuss how they operate, why they’re fun, and if there’s a way to simulate playing them without too much trouble.
And sometimes it actually makes it better
I'm kicking off a new segment where I talk about game music, and I wanted to do something special to introduce it. There's a lot of information in the YouTube description you might find interesting about the video itself, but I don't see any value in repeating that a second time here. Instead, I'll give you a little behind the scenes story about how I came up with this.
