Street Fighter V (for PlayStation 4)

Street Fighter V (for PlayStation 4)

V-Reversals, Street Fighter V’s version of Alpha Counters, require one V-Gauge stock and let you counter a move from a blocking position by pressing all three punches or kicks. Unlike Alpha Counters, V-Reversals don’t result in a universal counter; depending on the character that you select, V-Reversals can knock down, switch sides, or push back opponents.

Because V-Reversals are character-specific, you’ll want to spend time learning how to best apply them in battle more here.

ServiceDesk Plus (SDP) 9.1

Frankly, if SDP had web-enabled this module, this multi-site capability would almost be automatic, but it’s an issue because it requires client installation and synchronization with a central server.

The feature becomes more valuable as you progress up SDP’s versions, adding location capabilities around contract, asset, and identity management, but at the basic helpdesk level it’s fairly basic more here.

Creating a new Revelation helpdesk site works much the same way as the other products with an initial signup form followed by an email for confirmation. The initial minimal configuration required consists of creating a support category or project, named support staff, and end users. The trial version I tested included defaults for all of these items plus ten open tickets. Color coding for new, current, and late items helps quickly identify the issues needing immediate attention more here.

Piloteer (for iPad)


The game’s lovely paper-cutout art style shines as you soar across quaint urban environments. And when your character inevitably crumples into a limp ragdoll mess, the whimsical visuals keep the mood amusing rather than gruesome. After all, even successful landings usually look like they should be breaking your character’s shinbones more here.

SmartsheetEvery successful business already uses spreadsheets, and probably uses them for a lot more than just budgeting. Smartsheet is a piece of collaboration software that uses the familiar, flexible power of the spreadsheet for project management. It’s a unique hybrid that can handle everything from budgeting and reporting, to resource management and task tracking. But while Smartsheet certainly makes spreadsheets smarter, they’re still just spreadsheets. Look to products like Editors’ Choice Zoho Projects for an intuitive and elegant project management solution, straight from the source.

This means that LeanKit has a methodology (perhaps even an ideology) built-in. That’s not to say that LeanKit isn’t flexible; you can use it however you want. But getting the most out of it requires buying into the software and the ideas behind it more here.
