America may be losing their Marvel footing, and Street Fighter 5 leaks are more sad than anything; UltraDavid guest stars on Best of Three

In their weekly recap of notable happenings in the FGC, Best of Three bring on commentator David "UltraDavid" Graham for a back and forth on some of the community's latest news.

If Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was anyone's game, it was America's. Dominating the top eight every year at EVO since the game's inception, America has boasted a first place finish in Marvel 3 up until this year. David notes that recently we've seen more and more players from around the world, using lower tier teams, taking tournaments and turning heads.

The discussion proceeds to get David's thoughts on the incredible Street Fighter 4 finals at Canada Cup, and how the game, and its players, have had to change and adapt during its evolution.

The meat of the interview goes to Street Fighter 5, beginning with the massive leaks from PC hacks. David expresses how he can see both sides of the coin, but that surely this is a sad happening as it will take the wind out of SF5's sails later on.

Spider-Man Web Throws opponents off-screen, Wolverine's lvl. 3 passes through the opponent: Crazy UMvC3 Cross Assault glitch CMV

Defend The North is coming up this weekend, and to commemorate the upcoming New York-based fighting game tournament, Wolverine Master created an amazing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 combo video.

Using the UMvC3 Cross Assault glitch -- a glitch that allows two characters from the same team to fight on screen simultaneously -- Wolverine Master came up with a handful of incredible set ups that really push the limits of the game's combo system, as well as cause the game to behave rather strangely in some situations.

Below, you will find a sequence that features Spider-Man and Sentinel where the former assists off-screen with Web Throws.
