One touch stun combos with Ryu, a 70% combos with Bison and a 55 hit combos with Chun-Li; EL Chakotay shows off some heavy hitters in Street Fighter 5

Round and round we continue to go with the Street Fighter 5 online beta, and we have a few big damage combos for you to try out during the ongoing five day world wide beta test.

These combos show Ryu, Bison and Chun-Li at their strongest, requiring an activated V-Trigger to perform. They're not all that impractical, as Bison's requires a jump in in the corner, and Ryu's echoes his unblockable Denjin set up from Third Strike.

It may be more realistic that Chun-Li would score a 54-hit combo, as the one in today's video requires a stray fireball to hit, but we expect combos like these to be seen regularly should the game's properties remain widely the same.

These combos are yet another testament to the incredibly high damage output that Street Fighter 5 currently boasts. Hit the jump to see them.

The Super Smash Bros. fight for survival in this explosively action-packed stop motion video

Moonshine Animations have perfected the meticulous process that is stop motion animation, and they've applied their talents to making an exceptional action video featuring some of the Super Smash cast.

Mario, Samus, Link, Sonic, Snake and Luigi somehow end up in an evil dimension filled with heavy weapon-toting vixens who are less than welcoming, and the high-octane showdown that proceeds is incredible.

Not only is the animation top-notch, but the lighting, cinematography and pacing are all excellently executed. See if the Smash crew, Luigi in particular, can survive this explosive ordeal. Hit the jump to watch the video.

Phenom's OCV, an in-game bug sends DJT home, and another grand finals controller malfunction - Summer Jam 9 highlights

Summer Jam 9 was jam-packed with exciting match ups and epic moments. Having tuned in for the whole weekend of tournament goodness, we here at EventHubs wanted to share with our readers some of our favorite and some of the most intense moments from the event.

Featured here, you'll find an OCV (one-character-victory), perfects, comebacks, and much more! Below is our first highlight to get you started.

Phenom OCV's Noel, Strider, and NuckleDu in USF4 teams

During the Ultra Street Fighter 4 team tournament on day one of Summer Jam, BX3TPL|Phenom's M. Bison put in work. When going up against a team consisting of some of the U.S.'s strongest warriors (WFX|801 Strider, Liquid|NuckleDu, and UVG|Noel Brown), Phenom managed to take out all three in a OCV.

Even more impressive is the fact that Phenom defeated NuckleDu's Guile, which is one of Bison's worst match ups and regarded as one of the worst match ups in the game.

Introducing the Street Fighter 5 Fightpad Pro and Fightstick Alpha - Mad Catz unveils upcoming products

During the official Twitch broadcast of PAX Prime, Mad Catz's own Mark "MarkMan" Julio sat down with Mike Ross to discuss some upcoming products.

MarkMan unveiled two brand new Street Fighter 5 peripherals that are currently under development: the Fightpad Pro and Fightstick Alpha.

The Fightpad Pro is a traditional six-button controller that is similar to the old Street Fighter 4 line of fightpads with the addition of two analog sticks. The Fightstick Alpha is meant to be an entry level arcade stick that comes in a more compact design than the TE2 and has six buttons instead of eight.
