As avid a gamer as I am, one genre that I have never been particularly good at is fighting games. Sure, I've spent my fair share of time with Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II and Tekken, but the fighting game genre is one that I've never been able to get competitive in.
Until now. Maybe. Well, probably not, but maybe.
I've decided that over the next year, I'm going to spend some time trying to get better at fighting games. I've done my research, I've got my training tools together, and I'm ready to go.
Over on my Co-Op Critics gaming blog, I'll be posting weekly installments of my quest to become competent in virtual fisticuffs. I'm calling the series "Fists of Forty" (in honor of my recent birthday), and if you're at all interested in fighting games, I invite you to accompany me on my journey.
There are two installments of the series already up (here and here), and I'll be updating every week.
