We recently had the opportunity to attend a major tournament in Malaysia, where we conducted interviews with notable players and content creators. We’re thankful with the positive feedback we received from these interviews and are eager to bring you more insightful conversations from various creators across the globe. We're on a quest to explore the unique perspectives and angles that different creators bring to the fighting games and arcade culture. check those interviews out below:
I. Diving into Philosophy and Arcade Culture 📚
As we continue our journey, we're also delving into more thought-provoking topics, including the exploration of philosophy within arcade culture. Inspired by Walter Benjamin's work on the early Parisian arcades, we're fascinated by how these spaces represented a modern utopia, where commerce and ideas intersected. Expect more engaging discussions that go beyond fighting games as a commodity.
II. EVO 2023 🥊
EVO 2023, the pinnacle of competitive fighting games, has grabbed our attention. While we couldn't make it in person, our partners, Arkahives at Midnight attended the event and captured some spectacular footage. We're eagerly anticipating the release of their content to relive the excitement and witness the epic battles that took place.
III. The Rise of Street Fighter VI and Anticipating Mortal Kombat's Return 🎮
Street Fighter VI has emerged as a standout, delivering intense and entertaining gameplay. The epic showdown between MenaRD and Angry Bird showcased the game's potential to captivate and thrill players. Capcom's commitment to crafting an engaging and exciting fighting game experience is palpable, and we can't wait to see how the game evolves with the addition of characters like Akuma.
Meanwhile, Mortal Kombat fans have something to look forward to as the series takes a fresh direction. Mortal Kombat's revitalized approach strikes a balance between violence and fast-paced action, presenting gore in a more stylish and less intense manner. The upcoming release of Mortal Kombat promises a captivating roster, with characters like Li Mei stealing the spotlight for me personally!
Her powerful and confident demeanor, coupled with a unique martial arts style is just too good!!!
