The latest installment of the Mortal Kombat series is causing some controversy. Some players are saying it’s too violent while others think it’s just fine. What do you think?
Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are both popular fighting games, but which one is better? In this article, we will discuss the differences between these two games.

One reader expects for Golden Axe 4 from Dotemu, according to the Thursday Inbox, which includes an intriguing idea regarding the name of Breath Of The Wild 2.

The three major players It’s good to see rumors about Street Fighter 6 gaining traction, but, as everyone has pointed out, it’s difficult to see what they can accomplish with the current one that would warrant a sequel. But that’s been an issue for every fighting game since the dawn of time (or rather Street Fighter 2).
Given the initial backlash to Street Fighter 5, I anticipate Capcom to put forth a strong effort with a large new narrative mode, possibly borrowing a page from Mortal Kombat’s book in terms of single-player options. The problem with fighting games is that not even the most popular games have altered since the PlayStation era began. It’s still Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Tekken, and as much as I like Arc System Works’ games, I doubt that will change.
Despite the fact that both Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are 2D games, there are significant differences between them. To be quite honest, I’ve always liked Street Fighter. It’s always seemed more dynamic and fluid, and Mortal Kombat’s edgelord brutality, which gets worse with each game, has always turned me off. Mortal Kombat is undoubtedly the most popular, so you can’t blame them for not attempting to lighten things up.
Capcom was attempting to emphasize the fact that Street Fighter 6 has always been the more popular esport with the current game. However, it is hoped that the new one would have a broader reach. Mortem
Capcom All-Stars is a video game developed by Capcom. It’s great to see some excitement for Street Fighter 6 growing. I was reading some of the crazier ideas, and one that seemed to be gaining traction was that Luke/Rook is really Captain Commando, based on the star tattoos and, uh… his blondeness.
I believe there was something more, but it was just wishful thinking, with the general concept being that Street Fighter 6 would be a kind of Capcom vs. Capcom game featuring appearances from a variety of different titles, but simplified down into a normal fighting game looking type of character.
To be honest, I’d rather they simply wore their normal clothes, but I enjoy the concept anyway. I had no idea there were already some fairly deep connections to Strider in there, so the more the merrier, particularly because so many Capcom fighters have reps as well. At the very least, non-superpowered characters like the Resident Evil crew should be allowed to be included. That would be fantastic. Zed
Arcades that have vanished I suppose this is related to the broader debate about backwards compatibility, but recent Hot Topic emails and Reader’s Features got me wondering about games from the past that are still available on Xbox Live Arcade and/or PSN. Because of Microsoft’s stronger dedication to backwards compatibility, it’s less of a problem for Xbox users, but notable titles that come to mind include OutRun: Online Arcade and After Burner Climax.
Those two are simple to explain away; Sega no longer has the Ferrari/F-15 license, but it still doesn’t explain why games like Guardian Heroes and Hard Corps: Uprising couldn’t see fast and dirty adaptations to Steam, Epic Games’ PC shop, or Nintendo’s eShop. The latter may be able to wipe away the stench of Contra: Rogue Corps. Is there anything more that other readers who don’t have an Xbox would want to see made available? Bull Meestah PS: Despite receiving a physical release, I’d want to see Child Of Eden reissued. Imagine it on a large screen with HDR support, or on the Switch with the joy-gyro con’s controls for aiming!
GC: To be clear, Hard Corps: Uprising is a Konami spin-off of the Contra series.

The very first date I just wanted to congratulate Panic for selling out their whole first batch of Playdate pre-orders in only 17 minutes after they went online. As a result, anybody interested in purchasing one of Panic’s yellow small handhelds now will have to wait until at least next year owing to manufacturing issues/COVID, etc.
I’ve also noticed that many of the early reviews seem to be quite positive. (Wasn’t it possible, GC, that you were sent an early Playdate handheld to evaluate from Panic?) However, with the initial cost of the handheld being £130, plus shipping and tax, the total cost would have been just over £170, which for me was much too much of a risk to take on such a little new handheld. In all honesty, for the same amount of money, you could have a well-known Nintendo Switch Lite portable. JAH
GC: We’ve made contact and should have one in for review soon.
Nobody is without flaws. It’ll seem strange to say this, but you’re my go-to site for game reviews, and I agree with the vast majority, if not all, of them. Everyone, however, is responsible! Sorry if it came out as ominous. Consider a Hot Topic that enables readers to argue with your conclusions. Hold you to account!
Granted, I’m sure the majority of visitors to your site, including myself, agree with your general game assessment, but everyone has an opinion. You’re probably wondering what my specific point of contention is. The Outer Wilds are a place where you can get away from it all. Definitely a 9. Maybe I’m nitpicking and it’s not worth a Hot Topic? Is that the case? Digitiser is something I miss. That yellow goo in tins is what he drinks! Simon Ashworth (skeletor2001 – gamertag) is a gamer from the United Kingdom.
GC: We’ve covered that topic previously, so it’ll definitely come up again soon. Although we think you’re correct regarding the Outer Wilds.
Opportunity squandered The Reader’s Feature on Sega assisting Microsoft with Flight Simulator was fantastic. It’ll never happen, but it’s an interesting concept.
I’m still shocked Microsoft hasn’t purchased Sega at some time in the past. They’ve definitely lost their opportunity due to Japanese regulations prohibiting foreign businesses, as well as the fact that they’d have to purchase Sammy as well, but they really need a Japanese company on their side. I keep expecting them to make an announcement, but they never do. Lotz
a latecomer RE: Acidmouse’s Zelda: Skyward Sword Underbox article. Yes, the beginning isn’t very exciting, but if you have the time, I think it’s worth sticking with.
It takes me a while to realize how wonderful it is; in particular, the Lanaryu Desert/Temple section is fantastic. There are some fantastic puzzles in there.
Although Breath Of The Wild is the superior game, I believe Skyward Sword is still worth playing, and there are some obvious parallels between the two. I believe the director is the same. Chevrolet Malibu (PSN ID) PS: It is, however, a bloody grind.
GC: The director and producer are the same. Grindy is perhaps not the best term, since most people connect it with level grinding, which there isn’t any of.

Fill in the Blanks I’ve been playing a lot of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and I believe I’m about done with it, so I’m going to make a Nintendo prediction…
The order of the Zelda games has been established, with Skyward Sword being the first and Breath Of The Wild being the final. And that the upcoming game is a sequel to Breath Of The Wild, but that the floating islands in the previous video include some Skyward Sword-like characteristics. In Skyward Sword, the islands are said to float due to a previous incident.
Because Nintendo has previously said that the title is a narrative spoiler, I believe the next game will be a precursor to Skyward Sword and titled The Legend Of Zelda: Circle Of Time.
‘Hand(s) of Time’ could work based on Link’s clumsy arm and new time manipulation abilities, but it doesn’t account for the narrative implications of it being the place when time loops back to the beginning.
Given how frequent themes like time manipulation and events repeating themselves are in Zelda games, I’m amazed I haven’t heard hundreds of other people anticipate the same thing. (This may be due to the fact that I am not in any of the fashionable circles.) PazJohnMitch PS: Please accept my apologies in advance if you utilize this letter and are promptly shut down by Nintendo.
GC: As far as Nintendo forecasts go, that one seems reasonable.
also-rans in your inbox In response to a previous reader’s letter, the Soccer Kid game is now available on the Evercade portable system, as it was briefly featured in a recent MetalJesusRocks YouTube video. Call Of The Sea is currently being played by Andrew J. (Xbox One X)
Is there any chance of a Golden Axe 4 if the independent devs from Streets Of Rage 4 get involved? Be rotting, gaz (gamertag)
GC: It seems like there is a good possibility. Since you mentioned them, Dotemu was just purchased by Focus Home Interactive, which should provide them with some financial stability.
The topic for this week’s Hot Topic is Reader Grackle proposed the topic for this weekend’s Inbox, asking, “What’s your favorite platform and video game combo?”
What he means is, what game and system combination do you like the most? It might be a Nintendo console with Zelda or Mario, an Xbox with Halo, a Sony system with God Of War, or any other combo. Which game do you believe is so perfectly suited to its platform that it feels wrong to play it on anything other, and why, if it’s a third-party game, do you think it’s so well suited to your chosen device and not another?
We’ll be operating a skeleton crew on Friday owing to staff vacations, so if you can have your answers (and Reader’s Features) in by Thursday, that would be great.
