Long Island Joe's one-handed Sagat makes Gootecks feel a bit... inferior; check out episode 78 of The Excellent Adventures, 'MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE!'

The adventurous duo is back with their guest from the East coast, Long Island Joe.

In this episode, Joe shows us what he's been practicing on in his free time: developing a one-handed Sagat. Joe's surprisingly strong one-handed play makes our heroes feel a bit demoralized as they question if their game play is worth anything at all anymore.

Joe gets his however, when their nemesis for the episode, "bone oar," sends a fairly hilarious dis comment. Gootecks, Joe and Mike also each give a brief two cents on who they hope, or don't hope, to see in Street Fighter 5.

Could Capcom be developing an anti-leak approach for the Street Fighter 5 roster? BornFree speculates roster development for SF5

FGC figurine collector, YouTuber and gamer, BornFree is back to share with us his latest thoughts on Street Fighter 5. In a recent video, he offers his thoughts on the SF5 roster.

Specifically, he details who he thinks will be on the roster, how many characters it will be comprised of and Capcom's approach to releasing said characters. His speculation is that they are actually developing 32 characters for the game's release, not just 16.

This would give developers some power to combat any leaks during the initial reveal process. If they have a pool of 32 characters to choose from, then they can easily swap around who they include in the initial 16 should any or all of them be discovered prematurely.

GamingSins exposes a TON of inconsistencies, cheesy sequences and other hilarious mistakes in the Mortal Kombat X story line

Insanely cool and powerful characters taking on other equally cool and powerful characters in a death match? That's great. Said characters getting beat down by inexperienced newbie characters just for the sake of making a less-than-perfectly-thought-out story line work? Sinful.

GamingSins has gone through the Mortal Kombat X story and nitpicked just about each and every example of lazy writing, mismatched fights and unexplained happenings.

Mortal Kombat X is one of the most entertaining and successful games of the year, and we're not debating its status as such in the least. Still, it's pretty fun to sit back and play the role of the nit picky critic sometimes.

You'll see the video after the jump below, and just as a warning, the language and gore are a little bit NSFW at times.

It seems Nash is becoming the poster child for stylish combo potential in Street Fighter 5. SitverGold brings us a Nash combo video trying to think outside the box, with many interesting options and strings.

As far as the competitive fighting game scene is concerned, they don't get much more veteran and knowledgeable than LU|Alex Valle.

Misse's unrelenting Makoto, Tonpy's unblockable Viper and StormKubo's unbelievable comebacks make up our top seven Taiwan Fighter Major hype moments

Taiwan Fighter Major has concluded, and we have collected some of our favorite moments from the tournament to share with you. Though there was top notch play throughout, we nabbed seven moments that impressed us the most.

Storm Doesn't Care

In our first highlight, we see StormKubo's Hugo up against RZR|Itabashi's Zangief. Taken down to just a pixel of health, the audience is surprised when Itabashi's Spinning Pile Driver doesn't score the KO.

Kubo however, doesn't miss a beat as he stands up and runs through Itabashi, as though he were the one on offense the whole time.

What to expect from the PlayStation 4 port of Ultra Street Fighter 4

There was a bit of a delay from initial intentions, but Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be living the rest of its Pro Tour life on the PlayStation 4. As the PS4 is now the new standard, many players have begun the transition to the next generation platform.

Others haven't had a chance to dive in yet, and so we've taken some time with the game on PlayStation 4 to jot down any notable differences, good and bad, from the previous iterations.

The first note, which we're excited to be able to make, is that overall, the game looks and runs more smoothly than before. It was built for the previous gen consoles, and so we're not expecting lifelike graphics, but edges do look a little smoother this time around.

Offline play runs just as good, if not better than before. We hit all of our links pretty consistently, so this port should be viable for tournaments moving forward. Having said that, there are certainly still some hiccups in the less integral parts of game play. Hit the jump to read on.
