Stop-motion Dragon Ball Z is amazing! Watch Broly fight against Goku and his owner in this awesome short

Now, I realize that this video may not be directly related to fighting games. However, with Dragon Ball Z: Super Extreme Butoden currently in the works, we feel this is something our readers might want to see. It's just too good not to share!

A video creator named Jordan Tseng has an impressive figurine collection that he doesn't just use for display. Instead, Tseng creates stop-motion shorts in which his figures engage in battle, perform entertaining acts, and more.

In his latest work, we see Dragon Ball Z's Broly fight against Goku and Jordan himself (well, his hand, anyway). This stop-motion short is exceptionally well done and an absolute joy to watch for any DBZ fans out there.

Hisako and balance changes to release this week, may drop before her Killer Instinct season 2 official trailer

Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of Hisako's official Killer Instinct season 2 trailer, that which would unveil her release date. In an interesting turn of events, it seems that the next KI character may actually become available before the trailer.

Microsoft Creative Director, Adam Isgreen, took to Twitter today to update his followers on the status of the next character. According to the MS representative, the Hisako update -- including her and the 2.5 balance changes -- will be released this week even if her trailer hasn't officially dropped by that time.

In a previous Tweet, Isgreen mentioned that the trailer's delay is due to the refinement of Cinder's visual effects. Since the character is set to be teased in the upcoming trailer, the team wants to make sure the 7th KI season 2 fighter looks presentable. Although, Isgreen did state in his most recent tweet that Cinder is shaping up nicely.

'I'm the most complete Marvel player but I don't think there is a clear #1...' FChamp talks Final Round, his new job and his plans for the future

Final Round 18 was a huge hit this past weekend with a huge list of international names and fierce competition. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 victor, Filipino Champ, sat down with The Score eSports to discuss his tournament win.

In true Filipino Champ fashion, the Marvel veteran tweeted out a slightly snide, "I can Block" after his impressive showing at last weekend's tournament. The tweet itself received much attention and was a great segue into his post tourney interview wherein he revealed a major part of his in game mindset.

"Defense to me is the highest attribute in fighting games and I work hard developing my defense over time. Thanks to it my tourney results are pretty consistent."

Moving on to ask where Champ places himself on the top player list for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, he replied that he's "the most complete Marvel player but I don't think there is a clear #1. Chris (Gonzales), Justin (Wong), and I are all tied I think. No one else comes close."

Pretty bold words, but with the track record to back them up, it's difficult to disagree. Champ would go on to discuss his current practice situation as well as his new found fire for Street Fighter. Hit the jump to see more.

Streams, guides, networking and more... the forthcoming SmashPad App will be your mobile gateway to anything and everything Super Smash Bros.

We've seen game data apps before, but never one quite like this one. What exactly is SmashPad? It's a gateway to everything Smash.

Current updates on news, podcasts, guides and events are only a few of the perks SmashPad has to offer.

Along with complete frame data for each and every character, SmashPad will also provide video on demand for any uploaded match from any tournament.

The app will also offer a networking feature, which will allow users to find and contact local Smash gatherings and scenes. In this respect, it's sort of like a Facebook for Super Smash. A "Smashbook" if you will?

If SmashPad is as successful as it looks to be, apps like this could become regular practice in the Fighting Game Community. It's a means of consolidating many of the resources community members resort to all in one place. This is exciting not only for Smashers, but for the FGC as a whole.

Arrogance, overconfidence and awesome action poses; see who the bigger loser is in this One Minute Melee bout between Dan Hibiki and Hercule

Oaf squares off against oaf as Street Fighter's Dan Hibiki takes on Dragon Ball Z's Hercule, also known as Mr. Satan, in ScrewAttack's One Minute Melee!

This is something of an anti-dream battle as both of these characters exist more as jokes in their respective universes than anything else.

Unlike Death Battle, their sister show on ScrewAttack!, One Minute Melee is raw, non researched combat. This is simply a bout for entertainment's purpose, though you can vote on who you think would be the winner in a true fight.

With skills that are sub-par at best and egos that are easily over 9,000, hilarity will surely ensue in this battle of buffoons.

'Top 5 SF4 players in the world are Infiltration, Daigo, Sako, Momochi... and me!' - Xiao Hai talks character choices, Street Fighter 5 and more

Please note: This interview was conducted through the help of a English-Chinese translator.

Just a few weeks ago, Cannes Winter Clash wrapped up, and a whole plethora of talented players attended the event.

Thankfully, I was at the event representing our site, and managed to grab many interviews with players, which we will be publishing daily for about the next two weeks.

Today, we have a champion of many events, and a true world warrior sharing his wisdom - Qanba|Xiao Hai. You can find a snippet to get you started below.

MajinTenshinhan: Outside of Asia, the known Chinese players are you, Qanba|Xiao Hai, and Qanba|Dakou. Is this because you two are at a higher level than the rest of China's players, or do people simply not know about other killers from your country?

Qanba|Xiao Hai: There are six others besides us who are very strong. The most notable is Qanba|Dakou's disciple, Abao, and he won the recent Chinese championships, who uses Yang.

A Famicom samurai could have been a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4

This past weekend, a video interview featuring Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai hit the internet. In it, Sakurai gave an update on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS DLC character, Mewtwo, saying that the returning fighter will be released soon.

Sakurai also dropped another interesting bit of information pertaining to a character that was originally planned to be on the playable roster in Smash 4. According to the series creator, Takamaru -- the samurai hero from the Famicom title The Mysterious Murasame Castle -- was actually considered to be a select-able fighter, but was eventually cut because Sakurai felt the character wouldn't be widely recognized by Smash players.

Takamaru is still in Super Smash Bros. 4, however; you can utilize him in battle as one of the many Assist Trophies.

I've been a Nintendo fan since the first time I played Donkey Kong Country back in Kindergarten (I was around five-years-old then), and admittedly, I had never heard of Takamaru until today. So, perhaps Sakurai's assumption isn't too far off...

If you'd like to check out the original interview (conducted entirely in Japanese), you can find it here.
