Galactus can vanish from screen, avoid nearly all damage, and run out the clock in UMvC3 - Nova's Energy Javelin one of the only solutions

A couple of months ago, a trick was discovered that allows player to use three of the same character on one team in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This "save hack" trick also enables players to use Galactus, the game's final boss, in actual matches and even use two of him at once.

We were recently sent a video that shows an online bout where one player uses Galactus in-game. As seen in the video, there is a way to make it so that the UMvC3 boss vanishes from sight, make him impervious to nearly all damage.

According to Flying High, the person who uploaded the video, the only way to way to hit Galactus at this point is with a homing projectile attack, like Nova's Energy Javelin. Players using this trick can deal a small bit of chip damage to their opponent, disappear, and lame out a victory by running out the clock.

Check out the footage below.

Nemo to face Filipino Champ in high-stakes UMvC3 exhibition at West Coast Warzone 4, event added as Capcom Pro Tour ranking event

West Coast Warzone returns with its fourth installment in the tournament series and with it will come some very nice surprises for the fighting game community.

First of all, BE|Nemo, one of Japan's best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players, has been invited to compete at this year's West Coast Warzone. He has already accepted the invitation, and is set to go head-to-head with one of the US' best, Filipino Champ, in a high-stakes UMvC3 exhibition match.

The all-star bout will take place on finals day of the tournament (Sunday), and although the monetary details could not be shared at this time, this match-up may rival the classic MvC2 money match between GoldenBoyNeo and BT|Clockw0rk.

New Marvel fighting game announced shortly after pulling license from Capcom

While most Marvel vs Capcom fans are still lamenting over the loss of Capcom's right to further create or sell video games that contain the Marvel brand, Marvel has suddenly revealed its own attempt to woo those looking to smash one another with their favorite heroes.

Enter Contest of Champions, a mobile fighting game described to be an "immersive, high-action, high-fidelity superhero combat game." Favorites set to return include Captain America, Storm, and Spider-Man. Can the new title placate the masses of fans waiting for an expansion to Capcom's series?

Arthur can K.O. nearly anyone in the game without using X-Factor! Sick touch of death combo only takes 3 meters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

In Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Arthur isn't really known for having combos that deal big damage. Typically, the Ghouls 'n Ghosts veteran is played with a heavy zoning style, keeping his opponents at bay with an array of projectiles.

Earlier today we were sent a combo created by NothingButGamerMoney that can completely wipe out any character's health bar in one go, and utilizes Arthur on point with two assists.

Although anyone in UMvC3 can score a touch of death using X Factor and tons of meter, this particular combo bypasses the former and only uses three hyper meters.

The ToD is performed on Dr. Doom, and we can see that his life bar is completely depleted before Arthur launches his final hyper, meaning he can more than likely take out Thor, who has the highest stamina rating in the game.

Check out this sick Arthur touch of death combo below.

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.
