'My greatest loss was when I lost to Daigo Umehara; oh wait, I haven't' - meet Filipino Champ, K-Brad and BAS in Capcom's latest player spotlights

Capcom continues to upload their Pro Tour player spotlights, adding three more to their YouTube channel. In these videos, the company sits down with notable competitors in the fighting game community for a quick interview.

Today we have Filipino Champ, EG|K-Brad, and D44|BAS addressing questions about their favorite Capcom fighting game, their greatest achievement, and more.

One of the best answers provided in this batch of interviews comes from none other than the Filipino Champ. When asked which loss he feels is his greatest, FChamp was quick to fire shots.

"My greatest loss was when I lost to MCZ|Daigo Umehara; oh wait, I haven't -- ever," Champ says. Back in July of this year, Filipino Champ was responsible for knocking Umehara into the losers bracket at EVO 2014, where he was ultimately eliminated by John Choi.

There are other great clips here, including K-Brad's history with Street Fighter 4 and BAS' recalling his EVO victories. You can check out all three Capcom interviews below.

Character-specific infinite combo discovered in Super Smash Bros. 3DS - Zero Suit Samus seems to have a personal vendetta against poor Robin

Oh, poor Robin. No amount of tactical advantage will be able to save you from infinites. Well, assuming the other player can even get them going, that is.

It's been discovered that Zero Suit Samus has a character-specific infinite against Robin, which supposedly does not work on any of the other members of the cast. With today's age of patches, Nintendo might try to do something about this, but there has been no official word to that effect as of yet. Want to see the infinite in action? Look right below.

Gameplay debut for Guilty Gear Xrd newcomers Sin Kiske and Elphelt, this video from TGS covers their movesets and tools in detail

While we've known that the console version of Guilty Gear Xrd will be receiving two brand new characters, Sin Kiske and Elphelt, we haven't gotten to see any actual gameplay footage of the two outside of trailers yet.

Thankfully, TGS is a huge event that ArcSys don't want to miss, and as such they have brought their two new characters out in full force for the event. Below, you can find full runthroughs of the two characters, and gaze in awe or disgust (your call) at their movesets.

I must say that on a personal level, I love the idea of someone hitting people with a bouquet of flowers.

Mega Man has a combo breaker? First major glitch of Super Smash Bros. 4 found in the 3DS demo version

Glitches are a common occurence in fighting games, and Smash Bros. is definitely no exception. In fact, many of the high-level techniques that have made Melee into what it is today were in fact glitches.

But this seems like a glitch of an entirely different sort, giving one character a marked advantage over others. What this video suggests is that Mega Man can escape certain combos, which would essentially mean that one character, or certain characters, can use free combo breakers. Check out the video below to see it in practice.

Maya makes her gameplay debut in new official Killer Instinct trailer, mummy-like character and stage teased

We've seen some static images of Maya in action, but we've yet to see her fluid movements in-game. Now, you get that chance. Look no further than right below to see some Maya gameplay, including an ominous teaser of a new character.

At the end of the trailer you'll see a fairly large tease at what appears to be a mummy-like character. A new backdrop is also shown, and it looks to be some sort of laboratory in which rituals are performed. Microsoft previously noted that the third character to be shown for Killer Instinct season 2 is a new fighter to the franchise, so this mysterious being is more than likely not a revamped character from past KI iterations.

Check out a few screenshots of this new character, below.

Don't underestimate Mii! These videos showcase all normal and special moves available for your very own fighter in Super Smash Bros. For 3DS and Wii U

Certainly a unique addition to fighting games, the Mii Fighters, unveiled at E3 2014, received a somewhat mixed reception at first, although people seem to have warmed to them a lot over time.

With 3 different types of Mii Fighters available, the Brawler, the Swordfighter and the Gunner, they also have a variety of entirely different custom moves, rather than just small variations to regular moves, which means you can quite literally create your very own fighter in Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

If you're anything like me, you'll have been at least a little bit curious as to what these pint-sized avatars are capable of, and now you have 3 videos showcasing all of their normal moves, and all of their potential special moves as well.

Has Brawl's plague fallen from grace or is he still a force to be reckoned with? New SSB4 character spotlight focuses on tier destroyer Meta Knight

It's pretty much unanimously agreed upon that Meta Knight is the strongest character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. But with a new game comes new changes.

A few days ago, we put up a video from Sky Williams detailing the many changes made to Nintendo's mascot, Mario, in the new Super Smash Bros. game, and now the turn has come to the anti-hero of the Kirby series, Meta Knight.

If you want to know what changes have been placed on our beloved Meta Knight, and how said changes affect his Meta Game, check out the video.

Decapre - Nerfed, but not forgotten! Learn how to work around her unintentional changes, and utilize her full potential in this in-depth tutorial

Decapre is unique amongst the new additions in Ultra Street Fighter 4 for two main reasons. The first one is that she's a new character to the series, having never been playable before. The second is that she brings a playstyle to the table, an offensive charge character, that might not be fully embodied in any of the other charge characters present in the game.

As such, Decapre is fairly difficult to learn since it's hard to find something like her within the game. An amalgamation of several different aspects present in other characters, fixed together within one single, masked, russian-accented package...

If you have any interest in learning more about Miss December, then look no further than right below.
