Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Scorpion vs. Ryu in a fiery hell fight to the death......... why are you not watching it already?

How many hypothetical, fantasy match ups between your favorite video game characters have you envisioned over the years?

As evidenced by the multiple cross-over games we've seen such as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, Street Fighter X Tekken and, of course, Marvel vs Capcom, it's not at all uncommon to wonder how characters from one realm would do against another.

Over at Screw Attack, Wiz and Boomstick have been hard at work analyzing the weapons, armor and skills of Ryu and Scorpion for their latest Death Battle video. These videos are always incredibly entertaining and well done.

Hit the jump to see their video and my personal predictions on the outcome.

Time to see what the boss characters have to offer in the Omega Mode update for USF4!

There have been many times wherein we've played against these characters in their "Shin" form as mini/final bosses in arcade mode. We watched helplessly as they performed ridiculously awesome moves that were never available to us.

Omega mode is our chance to try out some over powered boss moves! Haunts walks us through some of the changes to bosses new and old.

Seth:

EX Sonic Boom stays still on the screen for a bit before flying towards the opponent. I guess you could call it a set-up move.

'Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage: fLoE or Floke' - Jayce the Ace and CJ Truth in Pro Tour's latest spotlights

Capcom continues to release their Pro Tour player spotlights in which they sit down with some of the most notable competitors in the community and talk shop.

The most recent videos were uploaded just yesterday, and feature fLoE, YBK|Jayce the Ace, and CJ Truth.

For those who are unfamiliar, fLoE is somewhat known for "choking" in a tournament setting. It has happened so many times, that whenever another occurs, many refer to it as a "Floke." In this interview, fLoE offers a bit of advice for those looking to cheer him on at the next event.

"Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage," fLoE explained. "Sometimes you'll see moments of brilliance, moments of greatness, and then you'll see the most terrible play you've ever seen in your life."

CJ Truth shares that his greatest achievement is not only beating EG|Justin Wong, but hitting him with a Perfect, and Jayce mentions that he has only been playing competitively for 4 and a half years, yet still managed to defeat MCZ|Tokido at SCR.

Check out Capcom's latest player spotlights below.

Just how strong of a seller is Street Fighter for Capcom? Latest numbers for the series as a whole and each game for Street Fighter 4, MvC3, and more

Update: A mistake in the article that implied the total of Marvel vs Capcom 3 sales totaled 7 million has been corrected. The Marvel vs Capcom series as a whole equals this amount. Secondly, while Street Fighter Alpha 3 is the lowest selling game listed, there are Capcom titles not represented due to their selling below 1 million.

Capcom has updated the sales of both their individual game sales and series sales for almost the entirety of their catalog. Sales, of course, are an integral part of getting funding for future titles, so where a franchise stands on this list shine shines some light on hopes for sequels and re-releases.

It should come as no surprise that Resident Evil takes the highest honor at a total of 62 million units sold worldwide. Specifically, Resident Evil 5 holds the number one spot for individual game sales at 6.7 million units. The highest selling Street Fighter title, Street Fighter II, closely follows in second at 6.3 million.

But how does Street Fighter hold up in sales overall? What is the worst selling Street Fighter title listed? And where's Marvel? Read below to find out.

VRyu's Makoto makes incredible reads, the Smug army invades, and more – this stunning, 15-minute USF4 highlight video by i Shoryuken makes time vanish

Highlight videos have become fairly common in the fighting game community. From the well done Spotlight series to YogaFlame24's selected replays and others, having an individual compilation standout has become increasingly difficult.

So it gives even more credit when a video like i Shoryuken's latest highlight reel is so intense and tightly packed that its full fifteen minutes seem to go by in an instant. There are so many excellent moments representing a large portion of the cast and so little downtime or fluff that it easily raises the bar for what to expect from selected Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage.
