  • On the Chain-Link Fence: Seth Killian and Derek Daniels Talk Combo Systems

    Published at Shoryuken - 10 readers

    I have a confession to make, Shoryuken readers. As much as I love playing, watching, and analyzing fighting games, I’m really no good at them.

  • Lab Notes: How Do I Keep Up with the Competition?

    Shoryuken - - 2 readers - I got a great question on my ask.fm a few weeks ago, and I thought it’d make a great topic for Lab Notes, so here we go: I feel like my execution is holding me back.
