Trailer Street Fighter V – Dhalsim Reveal Trailer

Written by Twisted Ideas

Look who’s back. Arguably the most annoying character to fight against, Dhalsim is back with a whole new bag of tricks and rocking a wicked beard. On top of his long limbs and teleports, Dhalsim has new Yoga Fire traps. One is an arcing ball of fire, another is a his Yoga Flame that launches from the ground and can be used in the air and what seems to be is V-Skill is a flame carpet that unblockable but deals no hit stun either. He also has a phasing move that looks like his teleport stance. He can delay is movements in the air and even shift himself. Characters who could change trajectory in the air always throws people off. Dhalsim looks like he’ll be a monster in Street Fighter V and maybe even fun to play for once.

Trailers Trailers From Last Week 5/31/2015 – Time to go to war

Written by Twisted Ideas

What else is there to say about Arkham Knight at this point. I just want it to come out but this new gameplay trailer is showing off more of the Batmobile. This is probably the most versatile Batmobile that I’ve seen. When engaged in the massive tank shoot out it can track the trajectory of enemy fire and drive in all directions like a helicopter. Best of all, it can do donuts.

Written by Twisted Ideas

I’ve never played an MMORPG to for an extended period of time nor have I ever been able to talk about what an expansion pack truly offers but this the Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Dungeon Crawl trailer does show off a lot. There are several new areas and some enemies that all look fairly impressive for an MMO. MMO expansions always bring people back into the game and sometimes get some people into them.

Whether it be its main games failing to deliver on what fans want or the numerous spin offs that are ignored, fans are becoming tired of waiting for something  good from the franchise. While I don’t totally agree with the vocal fans Theatrhythm Final Fantasy has caught my attention. It combines my love of Final Fantasy music and rhythm games. Is this mishmash a good thing on another product waiting to be ignored?
