We've been intensely exploring Street Fighter 5's latest transformation since its launch, and have some new revelations about how V-Shift will affect the meta. We also discuss how effective we feel the nerfs to five of the game's strongest characters will be, plus Dakota "DarkHorse" Hills joins us to talk about his experiences with Guilty Gear Strive's addictive beta, and even offers a quality of life tip to help make traversing the awful lobby system a little less hellacious.
