Combofiend and Mike Ross showcase Guile in Street Fighter 5 on tonight's episode of Capcom Pro Talk; live stream begins at 7 p.m. PST

Update: The show has been delayed as the production team is not currently present. We'll keep you updated should they start at a later time.

Tonight's Capcom Pro Talk with Mike Ross will be a special broadcast featuring the great Combofiend, and his character breakdown for Guile in Street Fighter 5.

The Capcom employee will be showing us the ins and outs of Guile's latest iteration. As part of the team that created him, Combofiend is more than qualified to direct us on how each of Guile's moves are intended to be used, what his strengths are and what his weaknesses are as well.

We look forward especially to see what kind of gimmicks Fiend pulls out against Mike, since the latter has had no experience playing Guile in SF5 at all yet.

The fun all starts at 7 p.m. PST, and you can watch it right here via the stream embed below.

Survival Mode difficulty, online issues, Ken's banana hair... Gameranx lists their top 10 things Street Fighter 5 players hate

I'll preface this with a well deserved nod to Capcom's overall success with Street Fighter 5. It's carrying the franchise, and the fighting game genre, forward to levels the FGC hadn't dreamed of just a few short years ago.

That being said, the game isn't without its blemishes, and the Mean Girl in all of us loves throwing a bit of shade here and there.

The YouTube channel Gameranx has compiled a list of things they feel the community is most disapproving of when it comes to the latest Street Fighter game. Lists like these are fun to give a look through, and compare your own personal notes with.

After you give it watch, we'd like to hear whether or not you agree with any or all of it, but also we'd like to hear how threatening you feel any or all of these issues may be towards game's longevity. The video is light-hearted in nature, but does raise some potentially important topics of discussion.

Guile is hot-blooded, likes American coffee, and fights for peace - check out his Street Fighter 5 bio, stats, and attributes here

Street Fighter 5's Guile has been unveiled, and already he's making waves across the internet.

Though his trailer was released this morning, which showed quite a bit of what he can do, there's still a bit more information about the latest DLC fighter left to look over.

The official, Japanese Street Fighter 5 website recently updated to incorporate Guile, and with this new addition came the character's bio, a chart showing his in-game stats, and a handful of attributes.

Thanks to our very own MajinTenshinhan, we were able to score a full English translation.

To get started, check out Guile's Street Fighter 5 bio below.

Guile may look all calm and composed, but he's actually a very hot-blooded man. Both his looks and his speech is cool - a very hard-boiled fighter.

He fights for peace in his native country.

M. Bison's organization Shadaloo, which is a threat to peace all across the world, and also responsible for what happened to his friend Nash, makes this a very personal case for him.

Street Fighter 5 Guile trailer released

The official trailer for Street Fighter 5's Guile has been released.

In it, we get to see what the game's second DLC character can do. Being a classic and returning world warrior, Guile retains his trademark Sonic Boom and Flash Kick special moves this time around.

Not only does the trailer show those two attacks in action, but we also get to see some of Guile's new tricks at play, including his stationary projectile V-Skill and his crouch walk that allows him to keep his charge while moving forward.

FChamp is unimpressed by PR Rog's rush down, action stops for a full 14 seconds and Filipinoman dominates JWong; West Coast Warzone highlights

The west coast has seen their first 2016 Capcom Pro Tour event play out, and West Coast Warzone 5 has not disappointed.

We've put together a collection of our favorite moments from the Super Street Fighter 5 top eight bracket, and our first sees two Evil Geniuses go toe to toe as EG|PR Balrog and EG|Ricki Ortiz duke it out in winners.

We have to imagine these two go back and forth an awful lot, but this day belonged to PR Rog. Below is a prime example of what it looks like when you just know what your foe wants to do. Rog hits Ricki with five separate attacks in a row.

Listen to Guile's Street Fighter 5 theme and watch his Sonic Hurricane Critical Art

A video just surfaced showcasing Guile's Street Fighter 5 Critical Art.

The SF veteran character has his Sonic Hurricane back, and it appears to be a charge based move. If this is indeed the case, this will be SF5's first charge Critical Art.

We saw our first glimpse of the American fighter earlier today, and hype only continues to build as we see more and more from him.

Guile's theme music may be the most popular theme in Street Fighter history, and we have his SF5 rendition to share with you as well. Guile is slated to drop some time this month, so players can expect him some time within the next two weeks.

Daigo takes on the infamous World_Combo in a poetically beautiful bout

To appreciate this one, you'll need to know a bit of the backstory.

World_Combo is a F.A.N.G player who is best known for being smitten from atop the Street Fighter 5 leaderboards not once, but twice for leaving matches early when a loss is imminent.

We can only imagine the trail of salt WC has left in his wake for both rage quitting, and beating people with the game's most idiosyncratic character. Not too long ago, World_Combo found himself facing off with MCZ|Daigo online, and the ensuing bout played out almost as though it were scripted.

Without giving away too much, here's some rising action in the third round, just before the match's climax.

Luffy thinks R. Mika is bottom tier, but other top French players disagree; see France's Street Fighter 5 tier lists here

Some of the top French Street Fighter players have banded together to offer their Street Fighter 5 tier lists to Red Bull.

RB|Luffy, Starnab, Renegad and others have ranked the 17 characters on the game's roster from strongest to weakest. Red Bull has also tallied up the group results to give an averaged list to represent France's general opinions.

R. Mika has been something of an anomaly when it comes to ranking the SF5 characters. Luffy mains the rainbow wrestler, and has placed her amongst the game's weakest characters. It appears he's really the only one of the group that thinks this way however.

Below you'll see Luffy's tier list as well as the overall list compiled from all players' responses.

She's slated to come out some time this month, which means we should be getting our hands on her within the next two weeks. Below you'll see Mira's official character artwork.

Mysterious character from Street Fighter 5's cinematic story trailer appears again in new stage

Back in January, we got to see the trailer for Street Fighter 5's cinematic story mode, and amongst the plethora of speculative theories it inspired was the question of the identity of this figure:

The trailer offered us only vague glimpses into the SF5 world, and we didn't know if this character was good, evil or neutral in alliance. Some speculated he may even be Guile or Balrog, but it looks like we've got a few answers from the Guile announcement images from earlier today.
