Wednesday Night Fights 2015 1.1 feat Happy Medicine, Viennahotdog, Nekromantik, Jarenrune and more

Wednesday Night Fights 2015 1.1 feat Happy Medicine, Viennahotdog, Nekromantik, Jarenrune and more Update: The first Wednesday Night Fights Online Edition has wrapped up and we've crowned a champion! Grand finals saw SoCal's own Nekromantik and his El Fuerte against Jarenrune's Decapre.

This set actually saw a lot of longer rounds and a few time outs as both players resorted to safer play instead of simply going in. There may be a lesson here, as these players did make it all the way through a 256 man bracket to get where they ended up.

Who ended up taking it all? You'll have to watch the replay to know for sure.

Hit the jump to see the stream archive as well as written results.

Every Tuesday, WNF will hold a qualifier that will narrow down the tournament to the top 16 players. On the following Wednesday, those players will battle it out for the #1 spot, which is what we can expect to see tonight.

Of course, the game of choice here is Ultra Street Fighter 4.

You can find the brackets on Xfire, so be sure to follow along with all the action as the tournament goes along.

There will be no pre-release demo of Mortal Kombat X, 'big surprise' may be coming this month

Were you hoping to test out Mortal Kombat X before you settled on a purchase? Well, I'm afraid I have some bad news for you.

Mortal Kombat series creator Ed Boon recently addressed a question over on Twitter regarding a pre-release demo on consoles. The verdict? There will be no pre-release demo of Mortal Kombat X. MKX producer Shaun Himmerick added a bit to Mr. Boon's statement, explaining that the team would rather focus on making the launch version of the game better than spend time on a demo.

Pokkèn Tournament's new trailer makes this game look better than ever, and did we just see Pikachu's super move?

Bandai Namco has released a brand new trailer for their Pocket Monster fighter, Pokkèn Tournament. In it, we see a ton of new gameplay footage (in beautiful 60 FPS), a quick introduction to the characters, and more.

Unfortunately, the entire trailer is in Japanese, so not everyone will be able to catch all of the info here. Still, it's great to see facets such as Pokkèn Tournament's Support Pokemon system and juggle combos in action here.

Also, at the very end of the trailer we see what appears to be Pikachu's super move. I must say, it looks pretty damn cool. Check it out below.

Rumor: Predator and Carl Weathers to be in Mortal Kombat X

According to a recent report, Predator and Colonel Al Dillon (played by Carl Weathers in the Predator movie series) will appear in Mortal Kombat X.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com, an unnamed source says that the two will be joining MKX in a June DLC pack. While it does say that Predator will be playable, the report did not specify whether or not Colonel Al Dillon would be added to the roster as well.

According to the same report, Carl Weathers has given permission for his likeness to be used in the upcoming fighting game.

We've seen series creator Ed Boon hint at the potential inclusion of Predator in the next Mortal Kombat game over on Twitter, but rumblings of the Colonel being added in as well are brand new. Personally, I think the chances of Spawn being playable are far more likely, but hey, that's just me.

As with all rumors, please take this with a grain of salt.

But if Colonel Al Dillon is indeed in Mortal Kombat X, all I can say is... "baby, we got a stew goin'!"

The Master's Series' estimated loss is $25,000, however, Lap Chi says there's still a good chance for another event in the series

Canada Cup Gaming's Master's Series took place early last month, and the event was incredibly hype, pitting players such as MCZ|Daigo, MD|Luffy, RZR|Xian, Snake Eyez, and a number of other great competitors against each other in FT7 sets.

With a myriad of amazing moments at the event came a number of hiccups, however, such as viewers bypassing the pay-per-view stream by watching on mobile devices. Nonetheless, we wanted to chat with the man behind the entire operation -- Canada Cup Gaming's Lap Chi Duong -- to pick his brain and find out how the event went overall, ask if the players enjoyed it, find out how the aforementioned hiccups affected the event, and more.

Below is a bit to get you started.

EventHubs: Let's cut right to the main question. How did the Master Series do, PPV wise?

Lap Chi: A lot better than I expected. I thought the numbers were going to be a bit lower, but of course, we were just testing at the time. I don't want to give out specific numbers, but later on I can give more of a number on how we did.

EventHubs: We personally thoroughly enjoyed our experience, and would definitely pay for this kind of event again. Are there any plans to do future PPV events of this nature?

Lap Chi: Yes, there is actually. We're still in negotiations with our sponsors here. If they are able to help us with our next event, there is a possibility of doing it again. We're going to have to make quite a few changes here and there because there were some hiccups, but going forward it's not completely dead. I'm going to say there's a 50% chance.

Ono wants to bring Street Fighter 5 to the PlayStation Vita

Back during the Taipei Game Show earlier this year, Capcom had a showing of their upcoming PlayStation 4/PC exclusive title -- Street Fighter 5. Two of the greatest players on the tournament scene today, MCZ|Daigo and AvM|Gamerbee, participated in an exhibition of the still-in-development title, and Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono shared more information about the game throughout the weekend.

Speaking on the subject of the aforementioned console exclusivity, Ono expressed his interest in broadening the game's horizons.

"[Street Fighter 5] will be an exclusive for the PS4 and PC. I'd like to make it for the Vita in the future but for now, my focus is for Sony and the PS4," Ono said.

The Capcom producer wants to bring the next-gen fighter to the world of handheld, and considering the company's recent partnership with Sony, this may not be entirely out of the question. Still, as Ono stated, the focus for the time being is getting Street Fighter 5 into the hands of PlayStation 4 and PC owners.

'Ghost Girl' set to be revealed at PAX East early next month, prepare to see Killer instinct season 2's next character soon

Killer Instinct season 2's character for February, Aganos, hasn't even been officially released yet, and already we've got information on when we can expect to see the fighter that follows.

The 5th character this season (technically 6th if you count bonus character Omen) is currently known only as "Ghost Girl" based upon the brief description we've heard of her from Microsoft and Iron Galaxy. Instead of Iron Galaxy running a live stream to show her off, however, the next KI season 2 warrior will be revealed on Saturday, March 7th at PAX East 2015.

Those who attend the special Killer Instinct panel on that day, set to take place at 12:30 p.m. EST / 9:30 a.m. PST, will witness the reveal of the mysterious female phantom. Additionally, the KI team will give sneak peek at new game modes, run a question and answer session, and more.

At this time, no mention of a live stream for the panel has been made. We have reached out to Microsoft for more information.

Zoner? Rushdown? Crazy mix-ups? What do you think "Ghost Girl's" play-style will be? Let us know in the comments below!

DOA5LR known issues roundup: Hayate and Phase 4 won't fight on the same team, XB1 ver. freezing up, Mad Catz & Razer fight sticks not working

Koei Tecmo Games's Dead or Alive 5 Last Round has finally hit store shelves in North America. Unfortunately, since the game's release, there have been numerous reports of users encountering game crashes and other sorts odd glitches that have had a negative impact on their experience with the game on launch day.

What sort of odd glitches, you ask? Well, for instance, in the PS3 version of DOA5LR, if you were to go into a tag match and select Hayate and Phase 4 to have them fight on the same team, the game will simply not allow you to proceed with the match. That's kind of creepy -- it's almost as if the characters have a mind of their own.

Fortunately, this is not a bizarre case of artificial intelligence gone rogue, but merely one of two known issues Team Ninja Studio have identified on their official FAQ, which covers many of the things DOA5LR customers should know about their game.

And that's just the beginning.

Read on to find out more about what other issues DOA5LR players are having with the game, and what you can do to potentially circumvent the problems.

Cool 'Infinite Daybreak' glitch discovered in Super Smash Bros. Wii U

YouTube user HermitHelmet has discovered a very cool "infinite Daybreak" glitch in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and I'm not sure if I want Nintendo to fix it.

After all, there is a considerable amount of work required before you can get this glitch going in an actual match -- it only works on certain stages (Mushroom Kingdom U was picked for HermitHelmet's demonstration), and you need all three Daybreak parts to spawn on the map and be picked up by a single player.

All told, this can take a long time to setup (you'll see in the video below), and isn't an issue that the competitive scene will run into at tournaments. So it really doesn't need to be patched. Hopefully Nintendo won't remove it. This looks pretty fun.

Please, Sakurai? Can we at least keep this one puppy, please? We promise we'll behave!
