All hail the one true king! In our 6th episode we return to our love of fighting games and ramble about the “The King of Fighters XIV” for the Playstation 4. The game brings new mechanics, a giant roster and more distinctly a departure from the 2D sprite based animations. We stack it up against the obvious competition, so will this reign as the fighting game of this generation. Plus we review the recently released “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided”. And for posterity we have to mention batman, with “Return of the Caped Crusaders”.

The One True King Returns
And in our main segment we review “The King Of Fighters XIV”, now moving forward without it’s traditional sprite based style. This is not a new thing, the series flirted with the style in “Maximum Impact” game. But with the very lackluster showing from “StreetFighter V” game, could this be the fighting game to take the throne for this generation?
