We discuss why Street Fighter X Tekken tanked in many respects, plus Capcom secrets and unlikely fighting game lessons learned from Risk
Street Fighter X Tekken wound up not being Capcom's proudest moment, but it did teach us plenty of lessons we'd be remiss not to remember in current times. Plus Catalyst shares some old conversations he's had with Capcom employees, I learned a fighting game lesson while playing Risk, and online tournament results are painting a somewhat surprising picture.

Street Fighter 6's story mode could be a greatest hits version of the franchise and Street Fighter 5 needs more zoning characters
Where on the Street Fighter timeline should Capcom hold the events of Street Fighter 6? We discuss the potential of a venture into the past to feature important and intriguing characters we've yet to see on any playable roster. Plus Catalyst meets a big goal with Menat, and we examine what types of SF5 characters seem to do the best in tournament to determine what types of characters the game could use in its final DLC season.

Catalyst and Raptor discuss Black Lives Matter, also we examine some hidden perks of online tournaments and Jyobin offers a lesson in bending rules
You don't need to venture very far or wide in the fighting game community to hear about obstacles that arise in network play, but after watching the Blink All-Star Challenge last weekend Catalyst has a list of online event perks you may not have realized were staring you in the face. Also, we find lessons in unlikely places as Jyobin and an Adam Sandler film give us a crash course on breaking the rules to break new ground.
