(Editors Opinion: I’m always looking forward to the news updates on one of PS4’s most innovative applications for those that like to create and share content via the PS4. I honestly only hope that this trend continues on the next PS4 console and that they use this application as a base for the PS5 or whatever forthcoming console/ hardware they have in store. I really wish that this was available as an option for the PS Vita [Remember that hand held anyone?]. However I can settle for the PS4 as of now. But still my point remains that I hope the good folks at PlayStation continue to build on this application as a standard moving forward for PlayStation related hardware.)

Street Fighter V- Sakura Introduction Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Kicking off Season 3, Sakura is the first of the six new characters for the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition fighters on January 16th, 2018. A lot has changed since we last seen Ryu’s number one fan, as Sakura now works part-time at an arcade. Season 3Sakura Fireball

Sakura brings a new special move to SFV, the Tengyo Hadoken. Where she can now send a fireball diagonally into the air that can act as an anti-air. Sakura fans don’t worry, she still remains the same to her pass iterations, with her Hadoken, Shouoken, and Shunpukyaku.Sakura V-Trigger Activation

Sakura’s Breakdown:

V-Skill: Haru KazeSakura V-skillSakura leaps into the air towards the opponent, which can then be followed up by three different options. Hitting punch will result in one of her signature moves, Sakura Otoshi, which can be pressed up to three times to continue the combo. Following up with a kick will trigger Oukakyaku, a forward flip that can act as a divekick. Finally, pressing throw (LP+LK) after Haru Kaze will result in Kashinfu, a command grab that that sees Sakura using her opponent as a spring board to jump back.

V-Trigger I: Haru ArashiSakura V-Trigger 1Upon activation, Sakura’s fists are enveloped by blue energy that powers up Hadoken and Tengyo Hadoken, giving them both an additional hit. Landing a hit will also cause your opponent to be put into a juggle state giving you an opportunity to land additional attacks. She can also press HP+HK again to use Hogasho, a powerful palm thrust.

V-Trigger II: Sakura SenpuSakura V-Trigger 2This time, Sakura’s fists and feet become enveloped by blue energy that powers up Shouoken and Shunpukyaku. Landing a hit will send your opponent flying into the air where you can cancel into V-Skill to follow up with either Sakura Otoshi or Oukakyaku. Both moves are improvements to their EX version and can be performed up to four times before Sakura Senpu ends.

Critical Art: Sakura RainSakura CASakura’s Critical Art draws inspiration from her past Super Combos. If used away from the opponent, it will only be a high-damaging Hadoken. However, if Sakura can land this Critical Art right next to the opponent, it’ll go into a special animation that deals significantly more damage.

Alongside with Sakura a new but familiar stage will also make an appearance on January 16th, Kasugano Residence. The Kasugano Residence has been around as long as Sakura first appearance in the Street Fighter Alpha 2.Kasugano Residence

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Full V-Trigger List

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

With season 3 almost upon us, the wonderful folks over at Capcom-Unity decided to give a full breakdown of all the new V-Triggers being implemented in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Every character will now receive a second V-Trigger to mix things up a bit, giving new options, mix-ups, and combo potential. For all current owners of Street Fighter V, the Arcade Edition will come as a free update for PlayStation 4 and PC on January 16th, 2018.

2nd V-Trigger Breakdown:

V-2 RYURyu (Kakko Fubatsu) – While active, press HP + HK to use Isshin, a technique that counters the opponent’s attacks. Upon countering an attack, a shockwave of energy will be released around Ryu. If this shockwave hits the opponent, Ryu will perform a strike attack.

Using Isshin, Ryu can counter everything except throws, giving him a highly functional defensive option. The opponent will be vulnerable to additional attacks after the Isshin strike, making for a great opportunity to deal major damage.

V-2 CHUN-LIChun-Li (Kikosho) – Chun-Li fires a ball of energy from both her hands in this V-Trigger. Press HP + HK to fire another Kikosho.

For Kikosho after V-Trigger activation, hold down the buttons HP + HK, and Kikosho will gain guard break properties. The opponent will be vulnerable afterwards, giving Chun-Li an opportunity to deal additional damage.

V-2 CAMMYCammy (Delta Ambush) – Press HP + HK for Delta Ambush, where Cammy flies towards her opponent. Press forward plus HP + HK for Delta Step, a quick forward dash. Although there are no move variations from Delta Step, Cammy can cancel her normal moves from the dash. Use it in combos, or to help her keep up a fast-paced offensive rush.

Press kick during Delta Ambush for the downward kick move Reverse Edge, or press punch for the command throw Delta Twist.

V-2 BISONM. Bison (Psycho Nightmare) – While active, press HP + HK to perform the Psycho Crusher special move. Bison also gains Psycho Charge – press reverse half circle (forward to back) plus kick to perform a command throw that infuses the opponent with Psycho Power.

If an opponent has been hit with Psycho Charge, the Psycho Power infused into them will explode after a set period of time. If the Psycho Charge was successful, the infusion can also be detonated with Psycho Judgement (forward to back) plus kick at your own discretion

V-2 KENKen (Shinryuken) – Shinryuken is a powerful, multi-hit rising Shoryuken. If it hits, rapidly press punch to change the properties of the move. The landing recovery of the max-strength version from rapid button presses can be special move canceled, leading to some very powerful combos.

V-2 BIRDIEBirdie (Birdie Time) – While in Birdie Time, press HP + HK to perform a new chain attack. Bull Swing is a high chain attack and allows for follow-up attacks, while Bull Capture is a low-hitting chain attack that targets the opponent’s feet. Use the directional buttons for the different versions.

The flames Birdie shoots from his mouth on activation have a hitbox, and on hit the opponent can be hit with an additional attack. Also, the low-hitting chain Bull Capture can interact with the objects Birdie throws on the ground for his V-Skill, giving him a unique new approach to the neutral game.

V-2 NASHNash (Stealth Dash) – With Stealth Dash, Nash quickly moves towards his opponent. During movement, press punch for Justice Corridor, a strong overhead punch move, or press kick for Justice Shell, a kick that launches the opponent. Press back for a quick stop, making this V-Trigger great for high-speed movement options.

Both Justice Corridor and Justice Shell can be canceled on hit or block, allowing Nash to extend his combos or keep up the pressure on a blocking opponent. However, the same move cannot be canceled into itself.

V-2 NECALLINecalli (Clouded Mirror) – Starting with Arcade Edition, Clouded Mirror is a special move Necalli gains after activating his V-Trigger I. It is a ranged attack, where Necalli jumps at his opponent with a strike.

Hold down the buttons to greatly increase the move’s strength. Necalli can juggle the opponent after the max strength version hits. Since it has quite a bit of startup, use together with Culminated Power to avoid having the opponent take advantage of the startup.

V-2 RASHIDRashid (Easifa) – Easifa strengthens Rashid’s kick special moves while active. Press HP + HK to perform Haboob, a wind projectile that has a different trajectory than his Whirlwind Shot.

Easifa strengthens the forward movement and hit properties of the kick special moves, increases range, and provides for other strengthening effects. It also increases the jump speed and distance of his front flip and allows Rashid to perform a wall jump after EX Eagle Spike hits, giving him more options in the neutral game and in combos.

V-2 LAURALaura (Shock Stance) – While active, Laura will be able to perform the dodge maneuver Matsuda Sway by pressing HP + HK. During Matsuda Sway, press HP + HK again to perform the command throw Shock Choke.

Matsuda Sway dodges non-throw attacks. Press forward with MP + MK during Matsuda Sway for a forward dash. Shock Choke can be performed from the dash, so Laura can use this to avoid her opponent’s big attacks and close the distance.

V-2 SIMDhalsim (Yoga Sansara) – Dhalsim creates a multi-hit orb of fire in front of him. This V-Trigger can also be performed in the air. Hitting the fire orb with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale will change its properties.

Hitting the fire orb with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale will put it in motion. Its trajectory will differ depending on the move used. The orb will keep moving while it’s on screen, and its trajectory can be further changed by hitting it again with Yoga Flame or Yoga Gale.

V-2 MIKAR. Mika (Steel Chair) – Nadeshiko will run out from behind Mika and throw a steel chair at the opponent. Hold down the button for Fightin’ Dirty, where Nadeshiko will run up to the opponent and take two swings at them with the steel chair.

Steel Chair hits multiple times, making it a great tool for combos. As Nadeshiko attacks twice with the steel chair in Fightin’ Dirty, use it together with Mika’s attacks to open up the opponent.

V-2 KARINKarin (Tenha no Kata) – While active, Karin will be able to use her counter move Yasha Gaeshi Tenchi by pressing HP + HK. What Karin does afterwards will change depending on the type of attack she counters.

Countering a low attack results in Yasha Gaeshi Chi, while all other attacks will result in Yasha Gaeshi Ten. Both moves can be canceled into from the recovery of her special moves and V-Skill, so Karin can turn situations where she’s normally at a disadvantage, into her favor.

V-2 F.A.N.GF.A.N.G (Koryo Dokuda) – Nishikyu and Ryobenda will be strengthened while active. With an increase in hits and the attack hitbox, this improves F.A.N.G’s ability to restrict his opponents movements.

While active, Nikankyaku can be performed from Nishikyu, giving F.A.N.G a way to close the distance and open up his opponent in close.

V-2 ZANGIEFZangief (Cossack Muscle) – Cossack Muscle changes the properties of Screw Pile Driver and Borscht Dynamite. The effects last until the V-Gauge Timer runs out, or if one of the aforementioned special moves is successfully hit.

In addition to increased damage for the Screw Pile Driver and Borscht Dynamite, Screw Pile Driver can be special move canceled and will combo, leading to command throw combos that usually aren’t possible.

V-2 VEGAVega (Alegrias) – While active, press HP + HK to perform Flash Arch – Rossa, which will counter the opponent’s attack, or perform the counter attack independently with Flash Arch – Granate (forward plus HP + HK).

Upon landing a successful counter, Vega will counter-attack, kicking the opponent up into the air, leaving them vulnerable to additional attacks. Flash Arch – Granate is the attack part without the counter. It’s good for usage in combos, but keep in mind that Flash Arch – Granate cannot counter attacks.

V-2 ALEXAlex (Rage Boost) – While in Rage Boost, Alex will gain the moves Flying DDT –  HP + HK, and Choke Sleeper –  HP + HK. Flying DDT is a moving throw that works against standing opponents. In addition to being a surprising mid-range attack, Flying DDT can be canceled from moves that cause a lot of hit stun, resulting in somewhat long-range combo ability.

Choke Sleeper can be performed only after Flash Chop on hit or block, and on hit leaves Alex in close to continue his offensive pressure. Choke Sleeper only hits close range, so be mindful of the range at which the Flash Chop hits.

V-2 GUILEGuile (Knife Edge) – Knife Edge is a power-up V-Trigger for Guile’s Somersault Kick. The Somersault Kick will create a projectile that will be fired towards the opponent. This projectile can be on screen at the same time as Sonic Boom and Sonic Cross.

While active, Guile will perform two iterations of kicks for his EX Somersault Kick. The EX version doesn’t have the projectile like the normal version does, but is good for use in combos and counter attacks.

V-2 BALROGBalrog (No Mercy) – While active, press HP + HK for the command throw B3.

If Balrog is having trouble opening his opponent up, this V-Trigger can help improve his offensive abilities while in close. B3 also deals a high amount of stun, so if the opponent already has a lot of stun built up, an active V-Trigger can make them feel pressured.

V-2 IBUKIIbuki (Fuma Shuriken) – Ibuki will throw a giant shuriken at the opponent, which comes back after going off-screen. Press HP + HK for Fuma Shuriken – Haku, which is for use against grounded opponents, and press back plus HP + HK for Fuma Shuriken – Kokufu, which is angled upwards for anti-air usage.

Due to the length at which the shuriken is on screen, it serves to limit the opponent’s movements. Ibuki can continue to combo the opponent after hit, and if it’s blocked she can use her Airborne Kunai and Kasumigake to confuse the opponent’s attempts to block.

V-2 JURIJuri (Feng Shui Engine Beta) – Juri emits a field around her that drains her opponent’s EX gauge, taking it for her own.

The roundhouse kick she performs upon activation has a hitbox and draws the opponent in, giving her a good opportunity to absorb the opponent’s gauge. The gauge absorption effect is paused while Juri performs a throw and when she is in mid-air, so be sure to think wisely about your fighting methods while this V-Trigger is active.

V-2 AKUMAAkuma (Shiretsu Hasshi) – Using Shiretsu Hasshi, Akuma can link together powerful attacks using the V-Timer instead of the EX gauge. Grounded HP/HK attacks and each of his special moves can be canceled into EX special moves.

There are many moves he will be able to cancel into the EX special moves, giving him the ability to deal great damage from a number of situations.

V-2 KOLINKolin (Absolute Zero) – While active, Kolin’s punch attacks and Hailstorm will be strengthened. Additionally, she has a forward dash where she will slide across the floor on a sheet of ice.

She can also press HP + HK to perform Frost Edge.

During this move, Kolin’s attacks will be given dash properties, similar to medium Vanity Step.  She can perform a high-speed Frost Edge from her forward dash, and if it hits, press HP + HK for Reverse Javelin, which will freeze the opponent and prevent them from recovering stun meter.

V-2 EDEd (Enhanced Snatcher) – While active, press HP + HK to perform an enhanced version of the Psycho Snatcher, the Ultra Snatcher. Use the directional buttons to change between the ground and anti-air versions.

For Ultra Snatcher – Ground, Ed will fly towards the opponent with a strike. On hit he will be able to combo afterwards, and on block Ed will be at the advantage.

Ultra Snatcher – Air, can be used both as anti-air, and in juggle combos.

V-2 ABIGAILAbigail (Hybrid Charge) – While active, Abigail will be able to use the powerful tackle move Metro Crash by pressing HP + HK. It can be strengthened to a second level upon holding down the buttons.

Abigail will have hyper armor while charging, letting him absorb multiple hits. However, the charge will be vulnerable to throws and Critical Arts. Maximum charge Metro Crash will guard break, and Abigail keeps his hyper armor even while moving forward.

V-2 MENATMenat (Prophecy of Thoth) – Prophecy of Thoth surrounds Menat with 6 Soul Power energy orbs. Use Judgement of Thoth to fire them all at once.

After Judgement of Thoth, Menat can get a new set of orbs by pressing HP + HK.

Use a reverse quarter circle (down to back) with different punch buttons to change the orb trajectory when firing, for use in controlling the opponent’s movements, anti-air, and extending combos.

V-2 ZEKUZeku (Karura Tenzan) – Both Old and Young Zeku share the same V-Trigger, Karura Tenzan. Upon activation Zeku moves forward with a launcher kick. If it connects, Zeku will switch identities and continue attacking.

It has priority against all non-grounded strike attacks, making it highly functional as a counter attack. Use the directional buttons to determine what side Zeku will land on after the additional attacks, allowing him to switch sides with his opponent.

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,Dragon Ball FighterZ ScanIn the latest issue of V-Jump, new Dragon Ball FighterZ information was released. Kid Buu, Gotenks, and Adult Gohan were recently adding to the lustrous roster for the highly anticipated Dragon Ball FighterZ. Thanks to ShonenGamez, for the scan with these three newly announced characters.  Details on the Arcade mode were also given. Explaining that players will face against multiple AI opponents, whether you win or lose it will determine the path you’ll take and who will face during your arcade play-through. Dragon Ball FighterZ will have a shop where you’ll be able to buy different color sets for characters and special titles using the in-game money that you earned. Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to release on January 26th, 2018.

Here is a brief breakdown on Kid Buu, Gotenks, and Adult Gohan:

Kid Buu

  • Power: 4
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 3
  • Technique: 4
  • Energy: 4

kid buuKid Buu has tricky attacks that make use of his elastic body. Since he has both power and speed, he can be a troublesome foe. He has unpredictable movements, such as stretching into the shape of a ball. His Meteor special attack is “Planet Burst”—that attack that destroys the earth. The opponent stands no chance once it hits.

Gotenks

  • Power: 3
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 1
  • Technique: 3
  • Energy: 4

gotenks SSJ3Unleash special moves with extremely flashy names one after the next! Continuous attacks that put adults to shame, with powerful special moves that don’t fail to live up to their name. Use the “Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack” to summon ghosts that deal damage upon impact. Use the Meteor special attack “Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball” to imprison your opponent within multiple rings in the shape of a ball. From there, one of your team members will jump in and start playing volleyball. Finish it off with a spike! The scenes for some of Gotenks’ special moves will change depending on the combination of team members.

Adult Gohan

  • Power: 3
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 3
  • Technique: 4
  • Energy: 2

mystic gohanBorrowing the power of Old Kai, Gohan unlocked his potential. With special attacks, his abilities have significantly improved. Use all of the Ki Gauge to unlock your potential! Depending on the amount of the Ki Gauge consumed, the magnification of Gohan’s abilities increase will change. Gohan’s Meteor special attack is “Ultimate Kamehameha.” Neither its power or number of hits can be compared to the regular Kamehameha.

In my opinion:With the popularity with these three characters the announcement, I feel will further fighting game enthusiast anticipation on getting their hands on Dragon Ball FighterZ. Kid Buu has always been one my favorite character to use in previous Dragon Ball Z fighting games. Before the announcement, he was my most anticipated character for Dragon Ball FighterZ, so you can imagine my excitement when he finally got revealed. Hopefully they will release the trailers soon for each character, so we can get a look of them in motion.Kid buu gotenks adult gohanLet us know your thoughts in the comment section on the three new characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Will you being trying them out?

(Editors Opinion: Not really a fan of the Skyrim franchise however Doom on the Standard PS4 alone is pretty darn stellar and this news reminds me that I need to finish my platinum play-through of the game as it’s one of my enjoyable titles on my gaming bucket list. But besides that. I am also looking forward to trying this out on PSVR as my Playstation VR experience has been a bit limited to only a few plays as I have yet to purchase one myself. But I surely plan on doing so for a myriad of reasons. However I encourage many to give PSVR VR a try and Doom is an excellent introductory to the experience.)

In just a few weeks PlayStation fans will be able to stock up and acquire new games and or consoles for the coming holiday season. As announced via the PlayStation Blog.

First up, all PlayStation VR bundles will be available at a great deal at participating retailers. This includes the recently announced PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport Bundle at $299.99 USD (MSRP) and PlayStation VR Skyrim VR Bundle at $349.99 USD (MSRP).

For PlayStation 4, the standard slim 1TB system in Jet Black will be available at $199.99 USD. This is the perfect time to pick up a PS4 as a gift for the special gamer in your life, or as a treat for yourself. You can also stock up on additional DualShock 4 wireless controllers while you’re at it. All DS4 controllers, including the recently released translucent colors, will start at $39.99 USD (MSRP) at participating retailers.

If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you’ll get exclusive early access to some of the biggest deals in the PlayStation Store Black Friday Sale starting on November 17. PS Plus members will find deals of up to 40% off on the hottest blockbuster titles.

Even if you’re not a PS Plus member, you still can take advantage of the Black Friday deals at PS Store starting November 21 through 8am PT November 28.

(Editors Note: I will be looking forward to black Friday deals via PSN, However participating retailers like Best Buy always tend to have pretty good deals so I would most definitely refer Best Buy as the “Go To” Store for more of the electronics side of your best buy needs. However these deals are always great and I expect to be able to do a nice trophy clean up for Black Friday via the PSN Store.)
