Jaguar Kicks galore, touch of death combos, and more bullets than we'd like to count: Red Man shows the power of three Weskers in UMvC3

Red Man, the man behind the Maximum Wesker series, has created the ultimate tribute to his favorite Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character -- Wesker.

Using the the "save hack trick," Red Man was able to select three of the same character on one UMvC3 team. This makes for some very interesting combo set ups, as Wesker has a number of ways to extend combos using his own assists as back up.

Not only are the combos used here impressive, but the video editing itself is quite good, making this an enjoyable watch overall. Be sure to check out Maximum Wesker, the final tribute, below.

Which fighting game player is the most popular on YouTube and Twitter? 34 of the biggest names in fighting games ranked

Who are the most popular fighting game players trending on YouTube and Twitter in the world? Japanese fighting game fan Tiger Knee Ojisan wanted to know the answer to that question, to the point that he decided to create a rather arbitrary method to judge the overall popularity of 34 notable names in the FGC -- and made a video to answer it.

His methodology for determining a player's popularity is quite simple: search on YouTube for the player's name, take the average view count of the top 5 videos listed for that player, and add it to the 10 times the number of followers he has on Twitter to drive that player's "PP" -- popularity points, we suppose.

Why 10x the number of Twitter followers? Beats me.

But surprisingly, in spite of the seemingly random formula, the list he has assembled seems to be pretty legit. In fact, the top two contenders on his list were even neck-and-neck in terms of the amount of PP they've amassed.

Check out the video below, and see if you agree with the list -- but do keep in mind that this is only one person's opinion of how a player's popularity should be tabulated.

'I don't mind playing top tier, but don't like them in UMvC3' - Justin Wong talks EVO win, top 5 characters, and more in EventHubs exclusive interview

EVO 2014 has wrapped up, and finally, the crowd favourite EG|Justin Wong has won 1st place in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

While Justin has taken several tournaments in the game with his signature team of Wolverine, Storm and Akuma, that EVO title has always been just out of reach for the veteran fighting game master.

We caught up with Justin in the wake of EVO 2014, and asked him a few questions about what it feels like to be the champ. Here's a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: Last year, you did an amazing run through top 8 of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but fell short in the end against RG|Flocker, who took home the gold. Since then, people have been very vocal about you bringing the hype to Marvel, so all eyes were definitely on you this year, even moreso given your prestigious history with the game's predecessor. How does it feel playing on the big stage, knowing that you have so many people out there rooting specifically for you?

EG|Justin Wong: It felt really good, just because making it back on the stage for top 8 of a Marvel vs. Capcom game gave me hope, and hope for everyone else. I wanted to win really bad, and I didn't want to let people down again.

You can find the rest of Justin's answers below.
