I love me a good fighting game and almost every time a new one pops up I jump on it to learn the nitty gritty. However there are lots of folks who aren’t ┬álike me and most fighting games just scare them away with all the nuances and precise inputs. For those looking to dive into a fighting game, but are too intimidated by game like Street Fighter, may I introduce to you Rising Thunder. Rising Thunder boils the game down to the basics. No half circles or button combinations to pull of a fireball. This simplicity gets rid of most execution and lets players focus on the fun part, beating up their friends. After going undefeated for the day (1-0) I got to speak with Tom Cannon the CEO of Radiant Entertainment. Check out the interview below.

Do fighting games intimidate you? What do you think about Rising Thunder’s “simple” approach to gameplay? Is it enough to get you to try it out? Let us know in the comments.
