Street Fighter V’s next patch will permanently address rage quitters

Capcom released Street Fighter V back in February, and almost immediately a problem developed with rage quitters, or players who quit matches early — often because they're losing — instead of seeing things through to the end.

Capcom looks to punish Street Fighter V players that quit matches early

If you've ever played any kind of competitive game online, like a FPS or fighting game, you're probably familiar with the "rage quit." It's when someone is so frustrated at being beaten by their opponent (usually by a wide margin), or they've been on a losing streak and just can't take another loss, so they quit the match instead of see it to the end.

Marshall vs. Capcom mixes Street Fighter’s music with Eminem

Art is a funny thing. There are things in this world that you wouldn't ever think to put together, because they just don't have anything in common. At least not on the surface. But then someone comes along, mixes two of your favorite things together, and suddenly something wonderful is born. And that's exactly what happened when one group decided to mix Eminem with Street Fighter.

Street Fighter V gets a surprise release on SteamOS and Linux

Earlier this month, sad news was delivered to Linux gamers everywhere. Arkham Knight was canceled on their OS of choice (as well as on the Mac). Of course, with all of the issues that PC gamers encountered with the game since its original launch, it really wasn't much of a surprise to see it get canned on other platforms. Thankfully, there are other, better games that will see Linux releases.

Become Mega Man with these limited edition headphones

Become Mega Man with these limited edition headphones

Ever since I played the first Mega Man game back on the NES, I was hooked. It was a pretty big change from jumping on goombas and hopping over pits. And it had a vastly different feel from shooting games like Contra. While I'll never have the powers of the Blue Bomber, I might be able to look the part, thanks to a new pair of headphones.

Street Fighter V is coming to SteamOS, will support Steam Controller

While Valve has done a lot of work trying to push their SteamOS, it's still far from popular. And while we've seen a lot of games make their way to the platform, it's still missing a lot of big names.
