Street Fighter 5 footage from Gamescom details Necalli and Vega's normals, specials, and general impressions

With Vega making his debut there, and us having relatively little footage of them at all, Necalli and Vega footage has been uploaded to Youtube.

This footage is from the show floor, with players exploring normals, giving their knowledge on the characters so far, and discovering new things mid-game. While the gameplay isn't the highest level, it gives us a great look into how the characters work.

There is plenty of experimentation to feast your eyes on, with two videos for Necalli and one for Vega. There are also plenty of observations on how the characters handle, with Necalli having some slower normals but hitting like a truck, and Vega remaining true to form despite his command changes.

Hit the jump to check out all three videos.

'It's tough to say what's canon for Street Fighter' - BornFree interviews Udon's Matt Moylan concerning all things Street Fighter

For anyone into Street Fighter, debating canon and the difference between the plot of the games and the plot of the various comics and other materials is a constant activity, and potentially a chore.

Shedding some light on the process of writing stories for the Street Fighter universe, BornFree interviews the director of publishing for Udon, Matt Moylan. In the interview, Moylan divulges information on tons of topics, including the Street Fighter 1 characters, Street Fighter 5, the difficulties of Street Fighter lore, and much more.

There's a full hour of interesting tidbits about writing comics, how the stories of our favorite characters have changed through the years, the basis for many of those very same characters, and covers things from every iteration of Street Fighter.

Matt Moylan also expresses a lot of interest in covering some other Capcom fighting game franchises that have yet to receive the Udon touch, like Power Stone.

'We DON'T tech those!' - C5 breaks down scenarios in Smash 4 where you can not tech with incredible detail, goes over a new game mechanic

For those unfamiliar, teching is a core mechanic present in all of the Smash Bros. games, allowing one to stop their momentum upon contact with a wall or surface entirely, aiding in survival and movement.

However, in Smash 4, a new mechanic is present that not many know about which prevents teching against the side of a stage, under particular conditions.

Thankfully C5 of Beefy Smash Doods is here to shed light on this unknown mechanic, providing a saving grace to all of those who would've teched if they could've, and were made fun of for it. He also explains in depth how this works, and how the teching itself works, even incorporating frame data.

Street Fighter 5 tournament to be held at Gamestop Expo on September 2nd, will also be live streamed

While it has been growing in recent years, the Gamestop Expo that takes place annually in Las Vegas has hardly ever showcased a fighting game before. This year, however, that is going to be changed, with Street Fighter 5 slated to make an appearance at the event.

Yesterday, Gamestop announced that the expo will be live streamed this year, on both Twitch and Youtube. While the stream schedule has all kinds of plans and announcements, there's one piece of the schedule that catches our eye.

What's interesting for our purposes is that Street Fighter 5 will be taking up a block of the stream schedule, with a game overview at 1:45 p.m., and an actual tournament to be held at 2:00 p.m.

It's not too often we get Street Fighter 5 tournaments, and we have yet to see one using the current build with Necalli and Vega. That being said, the tournament holds a lot of promise to see some current action from the game. Will you be tuning in to see the game in action? Sound off below.

Combofiend and Dahlgren explore the 'whys' as opposed to just the 'whats' of Street Fighter 5 as they discuss the motivations for character mechanics

In a recent interview with Anime News Network, Street Fighter 5 developers Combofiend and Matt Dahlgren answered a plethora of questions about the upcoming Street Fighter 5.

While many of us have heard plenty about game mechanics and character development, the devs go into a bit more depth as to their motivations for making the choices they have. The interview focuses more on the "why" as opposed to just the "what."

At one point, Dahlgren details a number of characters and why the team gave them their respective V-Triggers:

"It's like the V-Trigger is supposed to bring your character to life. So looking at the characters…if you think about Ryu, he's all about Hadokens and projectiles. His V-Trigger sends him into Denjin mode so he gets more powerful Hadokens... it's all about taking that core element of what that character is known for and then having that V-Trigger really bring them to life."

How to slip out of combos and stay alive longer; My Smash Corner shows you the most effective ways to use directional influence in Smash 4

The concept of direction influencing (DI) in Super Smash Bros. isn't new, but it has changed quite a bit since Melee. Using DI correctly can help you escape multiple-hitting moves and survive launches that would have otherwise killed.

The concept behind directional influence is that you can affect your character's momentum as they fly through the air, having been launched by your opponent. Knowing how to effectively do this is huge because, as the video illustrates, you can survive hits at well past traditional kill percentages.

While the concept remains widely the same compared to the Melee and Brawl days, the input for this technique has completely changed in Smash 4. Actually, directional influencing has changed since the early days of Smash 4 itself.

If you want to be even close to serious at Smash, you'll need to master this technique. Hit the jump below and check out the video.

Super Saiyan God Vegeta is in the Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden demo; check out the unlock code here

Before die hard Dragon Ball Z fans yell at us, yes, the official version of the character is Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta. This means Vegeta has reached Super Saiyan God mode, and then ascended into a Super Saiyan state from there.

You can play as this, what we can only assume is an incredibly powerful, assist character in the demo for Dragon Ball Z: Extremem Butoden. A code has been released that allows you to utilize the latest version of Vegeta. The code is included in the image below:

Something about 9,000... image #1

To access SSGSSV simply enter XAB↓→↑YAR↓→↑A→R at the game's title screen. Please don't hate us, but there is some bad news. The demo only allows for a 30-uses, so if you've already engaged in 30 battles, you'll have to wait for the actual release to play SSGSSV.

Is Ono hinting at Juri and Evil Ryu for Street Fighter 5? Capcom producer posts another interesting photo posted on Twitter

Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono continues to post interesting photos over on Twitter. His most recent upload is a shot of his desk with Street Fighter statues sitting atop it.

"I could get two figures on my desk at Capcom USA! My desk doesn't have free space," Ono says. Though this photo seems innocuous, some fans are speculating that this may be another cryptic endeavor from the Capcom representative hinting at new fighters set to enter the Street Fighter 5 ring.

We see in the photo below that an Evil Ryu and Juri stature are standing among other figures of characters already in Street Fighter 5. Even more interesting, is that a statue of Vega -- the most recently announced fighter in SF5 -- can also be seen on Ono's desk, further fueling speculation.

Nintendo doesn't plan to annualize Smash Bros., and that's probably a good thing

Some titles, probably best exemplified in the sports genre, get a brand new game every year. Other trademark franchises that perform exceptionally well will also commonly see yearly releases, but Smash Bros. will not be one of them.

Nintendo is particularly picky about which of its series it annualizes, and despite strong fan support for Super Smash, we likely won't be seeing a Smash 5 anytime too soon. In an interview with Examiner, Executive VP of Sales at Nintendo of America, Scott Moffitt states:

“We take different approaches with different franchises. If you look at the Pokémon franchise, we have released multiple core games for 3DS.We like to give Pokémon fans something every year, but something like Mario Kart or Smash Bros. there may only be one version of that franchise in the whole console cycle.”

While that's a little saddening, it's probably a good thing for the Smash community overall. Hit the jump to see why we think so.

Team Liquid has officially added another top-level player to their roster. This morning, it was announced that Nairoby 'Nairo' Quezada -- one of Super Smash Bros. 4's top players -- has joined the eSports team.

Nairo is arguably in the top 3 players of Smash 4, with recent accomplishments including winning 2nd place at CEO 2015 and 3rd at EVO 2015.

The Zero Suit Samus main joins fellow Smash players Liquid|Ken, Liquid|Hungrybox, and Liquid|Chillindude, along with Liquid's NuckleDu, their resident Ultra Street Fighter 4 player.

Axe's Pikachu has a death wish, Mew2King falls off his chair and Nairo's Zero Suit Samus goes from zero to 100; highlights from Super Smash Con 2015

Super Smash Con 2015 played out this past weekend, and there were plenty of exciting moments we'd like to share with you.

Our first moment comes from a bout in Melee between Tempo|Axe and COG|Mew2King. To begin with, things were not going very well for Axe as he was already down two games and two stocks against Mew2King.

In a move that was so unlikely that it actually worked, Axe charges up his forward B with Pikachu and knocks Mew2King into oblivion.

M2K reacts by nearly falling from his chair. It made very little sense for Axe to charge up here, for had he missed his foe, he'd have lost another stock at 0%. Perhaps he'd already given up the fight, and just wanted to go crazy.

Ferra /Torr lop off 51% with no meter, then bully, pummel and smash their way through these combo sequences

Hulking, grotesque and creepy. Just a few of the adjectives you'd associate with Mortal Kombat X's mismatched duo, Ferra/Torr.

Not often seen amongst the higher-level play of MKX, Ferra/Torr plead their case with some incredibly damaging combos. In fact, if you can manage to activate a few Pain and Gain techniques, you can score 51% without using any of your meter.

We also have a video from The Cool Kid93, as they take the character(s) into ranked kombat to show off their potential. Often setting traps via the pair's armor-granting power up, CoolKid93 proceeds to toss their opponents around like rag dolls with some pretty interesting combos.
