Leather, spandex, Vampy Bit Me and Playboy; this cosplay video shoot is beyond sexy

I'm going to start this off by stating flat out that this is not a nude photo shoot. Playboy is actually shying from their old ways, and doing away with nudity in their printed publications.

That said, Vampy Bit Me has teamed up with Playboy for an oh-so enticing photo shoot featuring her cosplays of a couple fighting game characters.

A very beautiful Psylocke, who appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and Nightwing, from Injustice: Gods Among Us, are both represented by Vampy in this beautiful shoot. Below are a few snapshots of both characters.

CVS2, Rival Schools, Third Strike, MVC2 and a LOT more; this epic, blast from the past combo video features 60 different fighting games

Scrolling through our more recent posts, you may notice we're on something of a Street Fighter 5 binge. While we're absolutely loving playing, discussing and delving into the new game, a little variety is always nice.

We use the term "little" very loosely, as the video we have here for you features no less than 60 different fighting games, (yes SF5 is in there as well,) from over the years.

The nostalgia you'll get from seeing a few of these titles is reason enough to give this combo collection a watch. Take a look at this Chun-Li sequence from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom... which does over 25 billion damage:

Cammy, Chun-Li, Kitana, and more look beautiful as paper sculptures

We've featured numerous artists here on EventHubs, yet I don't think we've ever seen something quite like this.

Belinda Rodriguez has created a handful of lovely pieces featuring Cammy, Chun-Li, Kitana, and Catwoman, but instead of ink or graphite, Belinda's medium is paper. Each of these sculptures is constructed using different colored paper that's cut, crunched, twirled, and folded to produce some very nice effects.

Iron Man takes on Lex Luthor in the latest Death Battle! Which suit-bearing billionare will survive their explosive fight to the death?

We've got the Armored Avenger, you may recognize him from Marvel vs Capcom, going one on one with Superman's arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, in a Death Battle!

Wiz and Boomstick break down both combatants, usually giving us at least one nugget of information we didn't know previously in the process, and then pit them against each other in a fantasy duel.

If there's a wild card in this one, it's probably that Lex is armed with alien technology. Though Iron Man has dealt with gods and aliens before, "alien technology" is a pretty broad descriptor and could sway the battle depending on the specifics.

ST Akuma, Marvel's Vergil, Brawl's Meta Knight? Who is the most broken playable character in fighting games? WatchMojo counts down their top 10 here!

Do you remember the first time you played Akuma in Street Fighter 2? How about when Super Smash Bros. Brawl came out and people figured out how to run over everyone with Meta Knight? Remember Scorpion in Injustice before the patch?

There are quite a few fighting game characters that left their mark of extreme frustration on our hearts as we quickly discovered how incredibly overpowered they were.

WatchMojo has created a list of some of these characters, ranking them from 10-1 based on how ridiculous their abilites are. Not every character on this list is from the fighting game genre, but there are certainly a collection of notables from the FGC's neck of the woods.

Now, please be patient as the video may not go into quite as much detail as you'd like in regards to why a character is too strong or which specific iteration of said character is the most overpowered.

Who do you think will make the list? Hit the jump to see if and where your favorite, or most hated, OP characters landed on the count down!
