Annual charity event 'The Art of Fighting' returns this Friday - art gallery/fighting game tournament ft. Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz, Angelic

The Art of Fighting returns this year and will be hosted at the Metropolis Comic Art Gallery in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Kicking off this Friday September 26th, AoF is a three-day event that will begin with a fighting game related art gallery/sale, featuring UDON's Chamba, Genzoman, Edwin Huang, and Omar Dogan; Skullgirls' Alex Ahad and Sara Talmadge; Bastion's Jen Zee; comic artists such as Mateus Santolouco, Matt Slay, and Sara Richard; cosplayer Yaya Han; and many more.

The fun doesn't stop there, though. New Mexico's largest fighting game tournament will take place on Saturday, in which eight different games will be played. Special guests include EG|Justin Wong, EG|Ricky Ortiz, BT|Angelic, and more. "Saturday Night Hype" -- exhibition series including a Southwest Team Battle and an "East vs. West" Albuquerque grudge match -- is scheduled for Saturday as well, so be sure to catch all of the action over on NM-ISM.

This annual celebration doubles as a fundraiser for children and families affect by Congenital Heart Defects, or CHDs. All proceeds from the event will go to the following charities: March of Dimes and Save Babies Through Screening Foundation. Last year, The Art of Fighting raised over $4,000 for these two organizations, who have since gone on to raise awareness and pass CHD-related legislature in New Mexico.

Triple Dante video has 600 hit combos, breaks Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 in incredible, new ways

Since the discovery of the Deadsnap and Save Hack glitches, combo videos have slowly started to come out of the woodwork utilizing these unused "features".

Few of them, however, reach the level of Alrikir's Dante combo video. It features seven minutes of incredible action. The inventiveness speaks for itself in this video, from 600 hit combos to showing what multiple Dantes on the screen at the same time can do.

Check below to watch the Devil May Cry protagonist break Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

'My greatest loss was when I lost to Daigo Umehara; oh wait, I haven't' - meet Filipino Champ, K-Brad and BAS in Capcom's latest player spotlights

Capcom continues to upload their Pro Tour player spotlights, adding three more to their YouTube channel. In these videos, the company sits down with notable competitors in the fighting game community for a quick interview.

Today we have Filipino Champ, EG|K-Brad, and D44|BAS addressing questions about their favorite Capcom fighting game, their greatest achievement, and more.

One of the best answers provided in this batch of interviews comes from none other than the Filipino Champ. When asked which loss he feels is his greatest, FChamp was quick to fire shots.

"My greatest loss was when I lost to MCZ|Daigo Umehara; oh wait, I haven't -- ever," Champ says. Back in July of this year, Filipino Champ was responsible for knocking Umehara into the losers bracket at EVO 2014, where he was ultimately eliminated by John Choi.

There are other great clips here, including K-Brad's history with Street Fighter 4 and BAS' recalling his EVO victories. You can check out all three Capcom interviews below.

If you thought Vergil was motivated before, think again - This new X-Factor conversion makes him even more deadly than he used to be

There's one character in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that people unanimously agree is, if not the best in the game, then at the very least in the top 3 characters of the game.

Dante's less humorous brother Vergil has proven himself to be a true force to be reckoned with in the game, and it's nigh impossible to see a top 8 without at least 2 or 3 teams with this particular son of Sparda in them.

However, there is no such thing as perfection. No matter how good you are, you can always improve. Unfortunately, Vergil got the memo.

These new X-Factor variations do more damage, kill quicker (resulting in more X-Factor time to spend) and grant you positive meter in the end. Look no further than below to see them in action.

Perfects, Happy Birthdays, and more - Filipino Champ and Nemo's FT20 exhibition is one of the best UMvC3 sets we've seen all year

This past weekend at West Coast Warzone 4, two of the best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players around went head-to-head in a high-stakes exhibition match. Filipino Champ took on BE|Nemo in a first-to-20 set, and today we have the full replay that features nearly two hours of Marvel hype.

FChamp uses his Dark Phoenix team (Magneto, Dr. Doom, Phoenix) after running his Dormammu variant, while Nemo uses his trademark Nova, Dr. Strange, Spencer squad throughout the set.

This match is incredibly hype, and these two Marvel players put their vast knowledge of this game to perfect use in what is perhaps the best UMvC3 exhibition we've seen all year.

Be sure to catch all of the action below.

A 7 second Perfect at a major! Noel Brown and Demon Hyo take part in quite possibly the shortest UMvC3 tournament set we've ever seen

Summer Jam 8, as well as Shadowloo Showdown V, took place this past weekend, and just like the latter this event had a slew of hype moments that may have slipped through the cracks with all of the action going on.

During the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 portion of the event on finals day, UVG|Noel Brown and AG|Demon Hyo went squared off both using Wolverine on point. In the very first game of the set, Demon Hyo caught Noel's Wolvie and Dr. Doom in an immediate Happy Birthday, and it was all downhill from there.

The first match was over in 7 in-game seconds, and we have the whole thing for you in the GIF below.

The action didn't end there, though, as Hyo proceeded to 3-0 Brown in one of the quickest UMvC3 tournament sets we've ever seen. The entire set clocked in at just around two minutes of actual play (timed from FIGHT! to K.O.)

You can find the whole set below.
