Frustrate foes from full screen or charge in, guns blazing and raise hell? Find your favorite style with these tutorials for Kenshi and Erron Black

As we're all still getting our bearings in the brand new Mortal Kombat X, clearly narrated, concise and insightful character breakdowns are some of our best friends.

With some positive reception to a few of his previous MKX videos, we revisit Superman Sajam's character breakdowns to learn a bit more about this exciting new game.

Today's focus is on Kenshi, the blind, telekinetic swordsman and Erron Black, the rugged gunslinger from Outworld. Kenshi is, and it may come as a BIG SURPRISE, a zoning character. Both his specials and normals are used primarily to ensure that his opponent never gets into his bubble.

Black, despite being a gunslinger, actually likes to play up in your face. He has a rather explosive play style as his goal seems to be to push you to the corner and pummel you on top of a bed of caltrops.

You can see both videos by clicking the jump below.

'American play style is more aggressive in tournaments. That, to me, is really special' - GamerBee talks playing in the U.S. and life as a pro gamer

Coming off of an impressive second place finish at this year's NorCal Regionals in Sacramento, Bruce 'AVM|GamerBee' Hsiang looks to be a contender for this year's Capcom Cup Finals.

GamerBee sat down with GameCrate for an interview wherein they discussed Bee's experiences in the United States as well as how going pro has affected his life over the past three years.

GameCrate: "Do you have any thoughts on the differences between U.S. players and players from different regions?"

GamerBee: "Basically in Street Fighter right now the top-tier players almost all come from Asia, like Japan and Korea. But the United States actually has really talented players, but the problem is because they don’t get a lot of chance to train with each other, because the Internet connection is not that good, compared to Asia. So I would say their play style is more aggressive in tournaments. That to me is really special, and sometimes they do really fancy stuff. Asian players just play passive defense, more like calculated, so it’s not that hyped."

Hsiang continues to go into detail about playing and traveling in the United States and how to be a better player. Hit the jump to see more.

'Mewtwo is the epitome of a glass cannon' Super Smash Academy breaks down the 150th Pokémon and newest addition to the Smash 4 roster

Being one of the five characters from Melee that did not make it into Brawl, it's been quite some time since we've seen Mewtwo in Super Smash Bros.

Finally, a few months after the release of Smash 4, the psychic powerhouse is back in our hands and seemingly stronger than ever.

Super Smash Academy has come out with a nifty breakdown video to help you get started with the new DLC character. Mewtwo's large size and floaty nature make him something of an easy target, but he makes up for this in the fact that he hits like a truck.

After the massive success of Marvel's recent Daredevil series on Netflix, a lot of people are stoked for the upcoming Iron Fist series, set to launch at some point in 2016. What fantastic timing by HT MrFlubbs, then, to pick this opportune moment to share a Iron Fist combo video that goes above and beyond what we've come to expect from the character.

This video focuses mainly on Iron Fist as a solo character - the only moment I can recall with any help is a THC activation featuring Nemesis - and the results are astounding. In one single combo, Iron Fist manages to switch sides more times than most of us change underwear in a week.

'Ermac's Spectral variation should be tournament banned' Tom Brady and Reo discuss Ermac's meter building glitch

It didn't take long as this is officially day seven of Mortal Kombat X's public release, but here's a potentially game-breaking glitch that allows Ermac to build a full bar of meter in just a single attack.

In his Spectral variation, Ermac gains the ability to levitate and fly around the screen. If he performs his air blast attack or his teleport attack from his in-flight state, he automatically builds a bar of meter.

MK TOM BRADY vs MK REO have made a video explaining this glitch and then give a few practical uses for it. Their conclusion? Ban the Spectral variation until this is patched out.

In theory, Ermac will be able to build a bar of meter every time he knocks his opponent down. If he hits you with a combo, he can build a full bar or two while taking off 20%-30% of your health.

It's likely that this will be quickly removed from the game, but for the time being, you Ermac players can jump online and build up your win ratio right quick! Hit the jump to see the video.

Don't know where to start with Mortal Kombat X? Perfect Legend teaches you how to 'Practice Like a Pro' in this training mode tutorial

As an editor for EventHubs, I've been watching Mortal Kombat X content for months now. I've seen developers reveal characters, game mechanics and even go behind the scenes and show trivial, fun bonus content. Over the course of the past few months, I felt like I gained a decent grasp of the game and how to play it.

I sat down last night to actually play for the first time and it wasn't until I reached the character select screen that it truly hit me. Right now there are 25 characters with three variations each. We'll be getting even more characters in the coming weeks. That's 75+ characters I'll need to understand if I'm to play this game competitively.

It was then that I began to feel a bit overwhelmed. "Where do I even start?"

Top Mortal Kombat player RZR|Perfect Legend has graciously made a tutorial video titled "Practicing like a Pro in Mortal Kombat X." In it, he tells us how he goes about delving into the game to gain your bearings.

He tells you what to look for first when beginning with a character. From there, he teaches you how to flesh out your findings to decide whether or not a character is right for you.

So, if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed by that huge roster, take a breath, hit the jump and learn one step at a time how to Practice Like a Pro.

Updated: 1.05 update for Ultra Street Fighter 4, full list of patch notes

Updated: Here is a link to the changes on Capcom Unity.

It appears as though all but one of the changes are going to be for Omega mode, and most of these involve making Super combos armor breaking. The one change that will affect the main game is for Decapre. "Must charge downback to activate the anti-air version of DCM."

Earlier: Reportedly, the patch will be issued for arcades, to allow NesicaXLive cabinets (which are installed with multiple titles) to run the game around May 15th. There will also be a patch addressing bugs for a few characters, which will go live tomorrow, April 22nd, but no word as of yet whether consoles will receive this update or not.

AverMedia's GamerBee spotted at a Japanese Arcade Center that the 1.05 patch for Ultra Street Fighter 4 is set to come out around May 15, 2015.

Street Fighter 5 may be taking a page out of Alpha 3's book; Vesper Arcade goes in-depth with current SF5 footage

For those of you who are hungry for more Street Fighter 5 knowledge, Vesper Arcade is back with another one of his incredibly insightful analysis videos for Street Fighter 5. This time, Vesper makes some pretty keen observations on the game's normal attacks, EX-moves, V-Trigger mechanic and more.

In Street Fighter 4, many normal attacks will have different animations based on your proximity to your opponent, which is why we're always distinguishing between the far and close versions of moves. It looks as though Street Fighter 5 will be doing away with that and giving us the power to execute different versions of normals via different commands.

Those of you who played Street Fighter Alpha 3, you may recall the V-ism fighting style, which took on the aforementioned properties. While this is, of course, still just theory, Vesper goes into great detail explaining why he believes each of his theories to be true.

Hit the jump to learn more about Street Fighter 5.
