Goro Daimon Combo Video

Forum Member Persona has recently uploaded a Daimon combo video displaying EX ground stomp loops and a 100% Hyper Drive combo. Despite the EX ground stomps being tool-assisted, there is still room for creativity in future HD combos and routes for the character so everyone that plays this character or just enjoys challenging themselves should definitely give this a shot.

APEX 2013 KOF XIII Grand Finals

For those that weren’t aware, APEX, (Known to be the Smash Bros. Series equivalent of EVO) hosted plenty of Fighting Games this year from Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and of course, The King of Fighters XIII. Many people were hesitant about attending this year due to last year’s fiasco but every great event takes time to construct itself & if you were in the East Coast area and did not attend, you definitely missed out. In the following video below is the Grand Finals set that took place at APEX between New Jersey’s own MarcoPolo & AGE Chris G.

The rest of the Top 8 is on Jaxel’s YouTube channel as well so they’re available for viewing.

Dream Cancel Interviews TSB|ZD Zidane

Zidane & Malik NEC XIII Top 8







Staff here at Dream Cancel have had the opportunity to catch up with Zidane after Northeast Championships XIII. For those that don’t know, Zidane is a New York player that is very well known for playing Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. In this interview, we question Zidane regarding his history on how he got started playing fighting games, how long has he been playing, his beliefs on KOF XIII and more. Thank you Bala for the photo above.

Hello and thank you for taking time out of your daily schedule for this interview. We’re pretty confident that people who did (if ever) doubted your skill after your placing at Northeast Championships XIII this year no longer will and those people in addition to many more definitely are curious of your history. What fighting games have you played casually as well as competitively in your lifespan? What about KOF XIII interested you in playing at this point in your career and do you see yourself continuing to play?

Zidane: My first serious fighting game was Guilty Gear XX #Reload for the Xbox but I played games like CvS2 and VF4 casually on Dreamcast/PS2. XAQshinor, another NY fighting game player, convinced me to play KOF XIII. I originally didn’t believe in the longevity of the game since it was coming out after UMvC3 but he bought it and I saw him play it and it looked really fun. As long as my group of friends plays KOF XIII, I’ll play it.

This is a recommend watch for everyone who uses Vice or is considering picking her up to watch as this is a great start or refreshment of what types of options you have at your disposal.                             

Hyper Drive Setups and More…..

As many of you may or may not be aware of, Team Chaos started their first stream about two weekends ago called kofinnovations and featured on the first episode was AGE|TC Romance featuring EMP|LDA Luis Cha. Now what really stood out were the Hyper Drive (HD) setups they were displaying and the combos being used. This is a must watch because it provides insight about the not too far off future meta-game of setups to be used (such as what the CafeID players are doing right now) & watching may also get the creative juices flowing in your own mind as well.
