Trying to out tune some of Street Fighter's best – Essenthy makes new, clean arrangements of Street Figher 3 Third Strike themes entirely from scratch

Street Fighter 3 Third Strike holds strong in people's hearts as being one of the most eccentric entries to the fighter. Along with the game's unique parry mechanic and cast, the third entry's music possessed ambitious steps into jazz and hip-hop.

Essenthy Onigami has decided to see how much further he can take the original tracks. And the results are impressive. What's perhaps most striking is how much these renditions honor the original pieces. Instead of trying to overhaul as ambitiously as Online Edition's soundtrack did, Essenthy has chosen to make his versions clean and subtle.

Check below to visit Third Strike's music for your first time again.

Canada Cup's The Masters Series rescheduled until early 2015, EVO 2014 champion Luffy confirmed to compete

The Canada Cup Masters Series, originally set to take place in November, is an event that is being held in order to honor the tournament's past champions. MCZ|Daigo, Kazunoko, RZR|Xian, and QANBA|Xiao Hai have all been invited to compete, however, only the latter two players have confirmed that they will be in attendance.

Just the other day, Kazunoko commented on the status of his invitation over on the Topanga stream. The incredibly skilled Yun player stated that if the scheduled dates of The Masters Series conflict with those of the Topanga A League in Japan, then he will not be able to attend.

We have just received official word from the folks over at Canada Cup Gaming that The Masters Series has been rescheduled until early 2015. The decision was made in order to better align with Daigo and Kazunoko's schedules, and to deliver the best event possible.

"We want to do this event in a very specific way and would much rather compromise on the dates than the quality."

Mortal Kombat X to receive console-exclusive guest characters, Boon says roster will have more new characters than any MK game

With Gamescom having taken place this past week, quite a few new details about NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighter, Mortal Kombat X, have surfaced.

In an interview with IGN, Boon discussed the thought process behind designing the the title's roster. The Mortal Kombat creator stated that the previous installment in the franchise, Mortal Kombat 9, was a "complete fan service title" because it had so many returning faces that players have known and loved for years.

Boon says that many classic characters will not return in Mortal Kombat X, however, and the company feels that it's time for some fresh fighters to enter the arena -- more new combatants than ever before.

"It was more important we did introduce new characters," Boon explained. "We're probably introducing more in this game than in any other MK title ever."

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 unused feature allows you to instantly tag in your teammates, lets the new generation of combos begin

A recently discovered Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 feature that never made it into the final build allows characters to instantaneously switch mid combo. In this off screen footage, you can see Vergil and Dr. Doom almost glitch into the place of the previous fighter to continue their combo.

It's interesting to wonder the new possibilities this feature might have brought into the game. Possibly, Capcom simply deemed it too broken, even for the likes of a Marvel vs Capcom game.

Check below to see the wild feature that didn't make the cut.

Kano slices your abdomen open before burning a hole in your head: Mortal Kombat X impressions of Kano's fatality, overall character balance, and more

A lot sooner than expected by most fans, a playable build of Mortal Kombat X actually appeared at Gamescom. The Kombat Tether, a fan website dedicated to all things Mortal Kombat, got a chance to view new fatalities and play the latest entry to the gory series.

After witnessing a new Jungle stage, panel attendees were treated with seeing Kano's fatality in full. According to the writers, "It was amazing... Kano unsheathes one of his knives and swiftly cuts into the opponent's abdomen which casues intestines to spill out onto the ground. As the character begins to drop to their knees, Kano grabs them from behind and hoists them up in front of him as he proceeds to burn through their skull with his laser eye."

But the fun didn't stop with new footage. The audience was then directed to Mortal Kombat X stations to play builds for both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.

Read below to find out their discoveries and first impressions of Mortal Kombat X.

To defeat your enemy, you must first understand how they think - Footage of Bonchan using Rose in online ranked matches

After having become the Topanga A League champion last year, Bonchan was on a roll. At EVO 2014, he was in the best possible position one can be - in winner's side of Grand Finals for the biggest tournament of the year.

Yet, it all came crushing down once the eventual EVO 2014 champion, Olivier 'Luffy' Hay, confronted him from the loser's bracket with his signature Rose, and sent Bonchan's Sagat back home to Japan.

Perhaps in preparation for their next bout, Bonchan has now been spotted using Rose online. Is this signifying a character change, or is he simply trying to figure out how to fight against the character by fighting as the character? You be the judge.
