Episode 6 – The One True King

In our 6th episode, we return to our love of fighting games and ramble about The King of Fighters XIV for the PlayStation 4. The game brings new mechanics, a large roster and more distinctly a departure from the 2D sprite-based animations. We stack it up against the apparent 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 Robo Humanity

Also Adam Jensen is back, with the latest entry in the long running neo-noir thriller! Mr Toffee gives his first impressions about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided out now on PC, Playstation 4 and XboxOne. We discuss where it stands within the legacy of the series. We take apart the game, it’s developing story and also rip on the attached micro-transaction bullshit.

Holy nostalgia boners Batman!

And we yes we get hyped about Batman(again), with the trailer reveal of the upcoming animated movie Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Hear us get nerdy about the legends Adam West and Burt Ward reprising the iconic roles.

The One True King Returns

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