Tiers for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Ever wanted to see the inside of a Japanese arcade? Spooky brings you on a tour in one of his latest videos from his trip to Japan

Ah, the arcades. While they exist outside of Japan too, there's nothing quite like entering a Japanese arcade, which by all accounts can be considered the proverbial mecca of not just fighting games, but all kinds of different games.

With Spooky recently visiting Japan to handle the tournament streaming duties during TGS, he decided to gather some more videos for all of his loyal yet-to-be-set-free viewers.

If you're interested in seeing what the inside of a Japanese arcade might be like, without putting up money for an expensive ticket, then you can get a free look at what the experience is like, thanks to good old "Mr. Victor Font" himself.

TGS 2014 tournament champion and El Fuerte master Pepeday set to head to The Fall Classic with the help of /r/Kappa

FGC|pepeday was not well-known when his name was listed in the same bracket as players like MCZ|Daigo, EG|Momochi, Kazunoko, MCZ|Tokido, Bonchan and many others during the TGS tournament last weekend.

But he ended up outplacing every single one of them, taking the entire tournament, and with a character that nobody expected to see win a major - El Fuerte. In light of this, /r/Kappa did what they do best, and got to work in getting this man out to a big event.

Updates likely on the way for Super Smash Bros. 3DS, DLC stages may be inbound

With Nintendo's recent interest in releasing post-launch DLC for titles, as seen with games like Mario Golf World Tour and Mario Kart 8, many fans figure they'll follow suit with Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U.

Although there has been no official word from the company stating that their upcoming fighting game will indeed receive additional content, future updates appear likely now.

Earlier this week, a Pastebin user named Kaphotics posted text discovered from a ROM dump of Super Smash Bros. 3DS. The massive wall of text contains information found on the cartridge, including character information, in-game messages, options, and more.

Among the ROM dump text were a few peculiar lines that likely reveal some of Nintendo's future plans. First of all, an in-game shop is mentioned, and the only way to access it is to update the software.

You will need to update the
software via Nintendo eShop
before using the in-game shop.

This, along with another similar message, shows that the developers intended to update the game at some point, but it's still not confirmed if they will follow through on these plans, although given the evidence to the contrary, updates seem very likely now.

LowTierGod admits defeat by smashing fluorescent lights on himself and taking advice from his cat - WNF grudge match follow-up video

Last week's installment of Wednesday Night Fights was host to the second grudge match in the series. Alex Myers and LowTierGod went toe-to-toe in a first-to-five Ultra Street Fighter 4 exhibition set, and unfortunately for the latter, the former came out on top.

The stipulations for losing this set included performing 30 push ups on stream and creating a follow-up video admitting defeat. LowTierGod fulfilled the first stipulation the night of the set, but today his defeat video went live.

In it, he admits that Myers was the better player last week, and then goes on to consult his pet cat on whether or not he should be punished for his loss. The cat shows no mercy...

Watch as LowTierGod hits the lights in his WNF grudge match defeat video.

Nana and Popo haunting the newest Smash Bros.? Remnants of Ice Climbers discovered in the 3DS version

While it's commonly known that Ice Climbers were removed from the Smash Bros. roster due to the 3DS's hardware limitations, a recent glitch in the handheld version has now revealed remnants of the cut characters.

Gema Yue recently discovered that when you play as Villager and KO two Dr. Marios simultaneously with 100% damage, the game will begin chanting and praising none other than Nana and Popo.

Destructoid tried replicating the glitch, but found that the chant correctly matches Villager. Whether this was fixed for the U.S. release or a hoax remains unknown.

This ain't a placeholder, people! Maya's actual Ultra Combo shown off at Tokyo Game Show 2014 - Killer Instinct season 2

Back when the first footage of Maya in Killer Instinct season 2 was shown off at Tokyo Game Show 2014, fans wondered what the returning character's Ultra Combo looked like on next-gen. Unfortunately, since the game is still in development, Maya simply had a placeholder Ultra that was a copy of Orchid's in KI season 1.

But now footage of Maya's actual Ultra Combo has surfaced, and we have it here for you today. This particular stylish finisher looks a bit slower than the others, and the duration appears to be the longest in the game, so far.

Having said that, the animations look great, and we get to see Maya performing crazy dagger toss loops, her Jungle Leap, and more.

You can check it out below.
