Old School Fighting Games
Old school fighting games are not mainstream like present ones. Esports shows off popular fighting games like Tekken 7, Street Fighter V Arcade Edition and Dragon Ball FighterZ. What about the old school fighting games? I have looked on YouTube and there are videos that have retro games. Recently, there is a Yomacon 2017 video of Breakers Revenge. I would ecstatic about representation of retro fighters. Some videos don’t include tournaments but casual matches. In causal style, there are commentators and in a venue like hotel. Note: it’s not like a tournament style like Esports. Players playing competitive or for fun. You guys know what I mean about it. Anyways, throughout the years in fighting game tournaments. Players from around the world compete to win. You probably know about Capcom Cup, Tougeki Super Battle Opera and Mikado Tournament.
Two of them have old school fighting games. There is huge esports event Evolution Champion Series (EVO). EVO have a sister branch with Japan. They have include a non-fighting game called Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Bros is debatable among fans thinking it’s a fighting game. I don’t know how Smash got into EVO but it’s unknown. Back to retro gaming, there is a lot of fighting games that’s haven’t been touch. There is array of fighting games that should get resurfaced. Some may have 3D and 2D elements in them. I normally do a top 5, but going one step beyond like Doug Walker. Here is my top 6 old school fighting games that should tournaments.
Mobile Games is a innovated apps that transcend video game consoles. There are a lot of upcoming indie developers that specialize app games. I have not covered mobile games in this blog. Hopefully, I would get the right equipment for them. Now, I just got a Samsung phone for downloading apps games now. If any indie developer want me to try about their app. Contact me on social media or email would help too. I would promote it and showcase them on YouTube. Also display them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more. That being said, mobile games is very different from consoles. Gamers don’t use a controller but fingers. Tablets is a sub-category for phones because it’s mobile. The might have a device that allows controllers for tablets or phones. Apps games got to have an operation system like IOS, Android and more.
They operate the same as Windows, Mac and Linux for computers. During development, apps doesn’t operate like video game consoles. Due to ram space and file size, developers uses minimum resources for the game. For example, Street Fighter VI mobile game that doesn’t include all the animations from console counterpart. Instead, there are arcade buttons shown on the screen. In consoles, it doesn’t have those button display on the screen. I have a app on my phone called The King of Emulator. This app have retro arcade games like Mortal Kombat 3, The King of Fighters 94 and many more. These games have smaller file size and got a fair conversion from arcade. Some apps have non-responsive buttons and bugs. Developers update them due to feedback from reviews. Sometimes problems are still there or improve the app.
Rise of Girl Gamers
In the early years, girl gamers was look down upon. Video games were for males only. Some females play video games but not like nowadays. Girls are known for fashion, boys and gossip on the phone. Don’t forgot social media like getting hearts and shares. Woman can do whatever they please and not limited to anything. There are platforms like Twitch and YouTube that have female gamers. You guys might know SniperWolf, Pixeled Pumpkin, Pokemane and many more. You guys might hear stories on how girl gamers survive in a male dominated culture. Being a girl gamer may be fun in a nutshell. There are others will use platforms to get attention. These types of women are called “Camgirls” which makes positive streamer look bad. Camgirls would dance, show off for views and donations. These girls get more views than normal female streamer.
I see why female streamers hate camgirls. If you to show off your body and sex appeal. Go towebcam sties. Girl streamers don’t want camgirls make them look bad. I got that out the way. Female streamers get sponsorships and developed a great community. Sometimes they cosplay or have a pleasant personality. She might do an anime-like heart with her hand. Do a little dance (Invader Zim lol). Her voice can be enchanting like a Disney-Princess. She might stream with her boyfriend or husband. What about the chat? Sometimes the chat would say disgusting things. These people are immature and never had a girlfriend before. Not all people in the chat are nothing like that. Trolls make your stream toxic and heckled. As long, these female streamers are not degrading themselves.
Twitch and Mixer
Twitch and Mixer are two streaming platform for opening doors to new or existing content creator. These two platforms offers chat, currency and support for streamers. Other platformers like Dlive have the same features as Mixer. The two streaming platformers are in competition with each other. For example, Twitch and YouTube Gaming has been rivals went it comes to streaming. YouTube is where creators show off their works to the world. That’s was back in the early 2000s went the platform was introduce. Google acquired YouTube went the ability to monetize your content. Content creator took advantage of this opportunity and wanted go full time. YouTube is not strange to controversy among popular video creators. Pewdipie is the most popular watched YouTubers with a fancy personality. Felix is a gaming YouTuber that average 1 million subscribers and counting.
Video Game Seasons
Video Game developed uses seasons just like a tv show. Just recently Evo 2019 just announce some brand new content for their hit games. Video game seasons brings new content for people to enjoy. We will digest some games that I have pros and cons. Fortnite season X is the latest expansion out right now. I have a bad feeling about Fortnite in general. Epic Games trying to make it more futuristic approach. They incorporate mech which is over powered and etc. Past season Fortnite have crossover events with battle tiers and skins. I don’t Fortnite will die or continue to live on. It not the same Fortnite once before and some agree with me. The building is the same and dancing emotes. We will have to see what Fortnite have to offer in future seasons. Apex Legends is still on season 2.
They add a new character named Wattson and map changes. Also new cosmetics and new legendary weapon “L-Star”. Apex Legends season 3 might have more content than 2. Changes may be good for some player but not all. I have not tried present season of Fortnite and Apex Legends. Time to time I have play Fortnite and dropped it. Apex Legends have server problem and EA needs to fix it. That’s the reason I quit playing Apex. Season 3 might fix online multiplayer servers soon. Back to Evo 2019 announcements and reveals for fighting games. Tekken 7 is on season 3 with new characters Leroy Smith and Zafina (Tekken 6). There is a rumor that Solid Snake is coming. If that possible, he will be 5th guest character next to Negan and Noctis. Can’t wait for season 3 and yet to get season 2 dlc due to high price.
