As more people get hands on time with Street Fighter 5, we see more and more knowledge and tech become available through all sorts of players, and today is no exception. JoshGG gives us two videos, one being a Cammy combo video, and the other being a kara grab tutorial that shows quite a bit of what the killer bee has to offer.

The combo video is incredibly comprehensive, exploring many combos out of various regular and command normals, crush counter combos, and V-Trigger combos, showing us how flexible Cammy's combo game is.

The next video is a kara grab tutorial, displaying three different kara grabs Cammy can utilize. Most intriguing about it, however, is that one of them uses a normal that normally moves her backwards, but ends up being the most effective kara grab tool.

Street Fighter 5's M. Bison scores crazy damage - This 70% combo will leave your opponents stunned

While we certainly know Street Fighter 5's damage can be quite high, we've never seen such a large damage combo without using a critical art. UM Tyrant shows us how it's done with a 70% combo using the tyrant himself, M. Bison.

The combo is off of a jump in, and uses two meters to reach stun, as well as Bison's V-Trigger throughout. At the end of it all, it uses three meter for 644 damage (70% on Cammy), and is sure to make it's mark on would be opponents.

With a large amount of the game's elements being combined for this combo, it gives us an interesting look into the potential Bison may have, especially while in V-Trigger.

Our friend Jason Laboy a.k.a. Jason24cf took a couple of trips down to both the Special Edition NYC and ConnectiCon conventions recently in order to check out what each expo had in store.

'You're still standing? Snot a problem' - Birdie's booger scores the first idle stance KO we've ever seen in Street Fighter 5

I'll preface this by saying that I never thought I'd have to write the words "booger knock out" ever in my life... Now that that's out of the way, let's get into it.

As some of you might know, in Street Fighter 5 Birdie shamelessly picks a booger and tosses it at the opponent when he's left standing idle for a short amount of time. What's interesting is, this projectile actually deals a tiny bit of damage.

With the recent beta stress tests in Europe, MDZ Ricky managed to pull off the unthinkable: knocking out the opponent using Birdie's booger toss.

After landing a command throw that appeared to be the finishing blow, the Ryu player miraculously remained living with a magic pixel of health. Believing there was no way to mount a comeback, the Ryu player gave up, leaving them open to the booger beat-down. (How many times can I write "booger" in this story?...)

Though this tactic is not very practical, MDZ Ricky managed to land it fair and square. You can check out the footage after the jump.

Next Level Arcade in New York City to close in February, co-owner sheds light on the situation

For those unfamiliar, Next Level Arcade is an arcade in New York City host to the NLBC weekly, as well as many FGC gatherings. Despite a long running, co-owner Henry Cen has stated that they will be shutting their doors on February 29th, 2016.

It would seem that this sudden turn of events is due to a disagreement between both owners concerning the future of Next Level Arcade, resulting in an agreement to go their separate ways once the lease ends in February.

This comes as a shock to much of the community, especially in the east coast, with another beloved arcade closing up shop. Victor "Spooky" Fontanez, the man responsible for running NLBC at the location, gave the first hints at this trouble in a discussion he held over his stream.

Hit the jump for more details, and a stream archive.

'Taking my shirt off is kind of embarassing, but it's become my trademark' - Poongko feels good about Street Fighter 5's potential

Recently, the crew over at Arcade Stream had the opportunity to interview Poongko, who had quite a bit to say concerning his shirt-removing showmanship, Street Fighter 5's potential and how he felt about the game, and character choices in Street Fighter 4.

When discussing showmanship, he specifically talks about the incident at Evo where he removed his shirt in response to another player. It seems he felt he couldn't just sit there and not respond, and that removing his shirt does actually embarrass him, but it's become something of a trademark and a way to excite him before a match.

Later in the interview, Poongko gives his thoughts on Street Fighter 5, noting that whenever he tries a new Street Fighter game he always does so by using Ryu. He praises the game, talking about how he feels that it has great potential from his experience playing it at Evo.

Hit the jump to check out the full interview.

Enjoy 20 minutes of continuous Vega footage in Street Fighter 5

Despite a small amount of Vega footage getting out, extended playtime of the Street Fighter 2 veteran has remained somewhat elusive.

It looks like a player known as "Tuxedo Kidd" had the forethought to gather twenty minutes of continuous Vega gameplay. While it's off-screen, the quality of the camera is good enough that it doesn't hamper your ability to study Street Fighter 5's latest addition.

Be warned, though, that there's some strange editing choices here and there, including a Pokemon spoof at 2:58 and what looks like a pseudo-interview with former Evolution champion MD|Luffy and his fiancée that's difficult to hear over the loud music.

Nonetheless, it still contains a good portion of Vega, so make sure to watch it below if you're interested in getting some extended study time.

LiangHuBBB goes on a 107 game win streak in SF5, condenses it into a single CMV to highlight some outstanding combos and tech

How confident are you feeling in Street Fighter 5 right now? While Ultra Street Fighter 4 knowledge will certainly be a boon to those jumping into the beta, LiangHuBBB apparently stands well above the competition.

He hit a 107 match win streak during the beta before finally being defeated by Gagapa. Not only does this make for some nice bragging rights, but LiangHuBBB thought it'd make for good instruction. He condensed his streak into a single CMV that focuses on character tech, combos, and setups with Ryu. If you're looking to break his record, then you might want to study his win streak.

You can take a look at the footage below.

After the announcement that Pokkén Tournament would be coming to arcades, some players in regions without a booming arcade scene were feeling left out. Furthermore, without a console release, the tournament longevity of the game could already be brought into question.

Updated: Super Smash Bros. Melee makes its way onto the DreamHack London and DreamHack Winter line ups, Armada to attend London event

Updated: Super Smash Bros. Melee will also be at DreamHack Winter. This means that Melee will be part of two different DreamHack events and brings the total prize pool up to $50,000 ($20,000 for London DreamHack and $30,000 for Winter DreamHack). Furthermore, EVO 2015 Champion Armada will be attending the London tournament. You can find out more information at the official DreamHack London website.

Earlier: Early this morning, the official DreamHack Fighters Twitter account tweeted out a cryptic picture of a Nintendo Gamecube.

A handful of the tournament series account's followers took this as an allusion to a potential DreamHack Super Smash Bros. Melee event... and they were right. DreamHack will be running a Melee event in London, sources close to the organization have told The Daily Dot.

DreamHack London will be taking place on September 19 - 20, and not only will this be one of the first non-fighting game events to feature Super Smash Bros., but this will also be Melee's first appearance at DH.

Street Fighter 5 beta plans updated, regional stress tests begin today with Europe, Japan/Asia tests going live this weekend

Updated again: Information about Japan and Asia's beta test has been released over on the Saikyo blog. Participants will be able to access the beta in Japan and Asia on August 22nd and 23rd from 4 p.m. - 10 p.m. JST on both days.

Earlier: Capcom has recently announced the new plan for the Street Fighter 5 beta, with regional stress tests taking place today, starting with Europe. They will take place from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. BST today and tomorrow for Europe only.

Once Capcom is confident with those test results, they will then announce dates and times for regional tests for North America and Asia. After those tests are finished, they will then announce the global beta test, which will still take place over the promised five days of time.

Though they feel the tests will be a smoother experience this time, it's worth noting that these are still tests, and as such issues can occur throughout.
