My Body, Is Not Ready

Combo Breakers, Counter Breakers, spacing, timing, hit boxes, frame data, combos that actually work in practice.  These are all aspects of Killer Instinct and of fighting games in general that can be learned with enough practice.  Fundament...


An evolving setup and more Killer Instinct

Well, I've been banished from my own television folks.  The wife has decided, in her majesty's flawless wisdom, that she can no longer share the television.  Snap is not good enough.  Days of our Lives takes priority over my X1.  So, I wa...


Confession: I am horrible at Killer Instinct

I am a terrible Killer Instinct player.  It's not the game that is at fault.  It's fairly simple to learn, not incredibly challenging to master.  It's responsive, fluid, and well designed.  No, it's just me.  While it isn't hard to learn, i...


Swiftly Reviews: Dead Rising 3

Sigh, I should have known better.

Do you know what I had to eat this morning for breakfast?  Guess.  Go on, I'll wait. . .. ... Humble Pie with a side of Crow.  I don't care for it and I think I'll avoid its foul, disgusting taste from now on.  It was served to me upon lo...


Titanfall Worries

I don't play a lot of first person shooters.  I haven't played Call of Duty since the first one.  I haven't played Halo since the first one.  I haven't touched online multiplayer in either of them.  Yet I enjoyed the hell out of the Bioshoc...
