Pixelitis Picks: Fighting game aggravations

"After having health bars, special meters, air cancels, air combos and wave-dashing thrown in our faces for years, it’s time we counterattack by grilling on fighting games a little.

By the time you’re reading this, Divekick has already been unleashed on Steam, PS3 and Vita, and while it may be billed as a parody fighting game (or a straight razor according to Action Button), it does something new and fresh for those who tire of memorizing long-winded button combos and glossary terms: it keeps things simple. You dive and kick: that’s it (in addition to some little button quirks here and there).

With this fresh new way of playing a fighting game, we thought it best to whine and complain discuss what is it about playing fighting games that can make our sanity meters go through the roof and unleash a devastating Shinkuu-Hadouken on our friends, family or foes." - Pixelitis Staff (Arcade, Culture, Divekick, Guilty Gear X2: The Midnight Carnival, Mortal Kombat, PS2, PS3, Super Street Fighter IV, Xbox 360)

Nice puff piece for Divekick. I hope your integrity sold for a pretty penny.

I definitely wouldn't call this a puff piece for Divekick. Sure, we came up with the idea for the piece because of the game's release, but that's just about it.

As for our integrity being sold for a pretty penny, that's a pretty base line of thinking, don't you think?

Surely you can come up with something better than that.
