Good morning, good weekend, blissful holidays, and welcome to Whatcha Been Taking part in? I hope that you just’re all feeling suitably festive this Saturday morning, no matter your disposition to The Most Great Time of the 12 months. I have to admit to not feeling significantly “Christmassy” in 2022, and I haven’t in some years.

So, I hope that this week has been sort to you and yours, and that this weekend will can help you take your foot off the accelerator slightly — no matter whether or not you’re celebrating Santa Day or in any other case.

Not less than the office rise and grind. The gaming rise and grind doesn’t take a vacation. Ever.

We want you a Juri Christmas

When it comes to gaming, I spent extra time than was wise gobbling up each second of the second Street Fighter 6 closed beta. Look, I gotta inform ya, that sport simply feels higher and higher the extra I play it. You by no means actually know precisely whether or not a fighter is figuring out till a few months after launch — That’s once we’ve investigated what works, what doesn’t, how the meta has rolled out, how poisonous the sport is, and so on. However, simply from these early play periods, I can’t actually get sufficient of Capcom’s subsequent scrapper.

The visuals, the sound, the brand new character fashions, the thrilling new roster additions. And that’s with out even mentioning the weather we haven’t explored but: World Tour, mini-games, aggressive scene, story mode, and all of the newcomers and their roles within the Road Fighter universe. June is gonna be a little bit of a wait, that’s for certain, however each month that passes is a month extra polish. I hope that, come launch day, Capcom actually delivers on this early promise proven by the title. Keep the course, staff. Ah’m beggin’ ya.
