The recent fighting game tournament Combo Breaker featured the obvious big games such as Street Fighter V and Injustice 2, but a less-heralded game had one of the event's best and most unconventional showings. Vampire Saviour, a 1997 fighting game featuring demons, zombies, and mummies, drew perhaps the greatest collection of North American competitors it's ever seen, setting the stage for an amazing grand finals match between characters thought to be two of the weakest on its roster.
While one-on-one battles are commonplace in many fighting games, it isn't really something you see go down in Skullgirls all that often. But the Combo Breaker grand finals last weekend featured Dominique "Sonic Fox" McLean and Jeremiah "WingZero" Beaty, two of the community's best competitors, using just one character apiece. Both players left a path of destruction behind them as they journeyed to the championship match with their unconventional playstyles.
