'If you're not going to land the hit, combo may as well not exist' Ketchup and Mustard explain the pivotal 'Art of Rushdown' in their latest video

Striking, blocking, and throwing are fairly universal when it comes to fighting games, but each game finds its exclusivity in the way it lends itself to one, specific approach. While defense and zoning are very relevant parts of Mortal Kombat X, the game is probably most defined by its rush down offense.

Ketchup and Mustard continue their instructional series for MKX with episode four of Casual to Competitive: The Art of Rushdown. Here they delve into what it takes to get in your opponent's face and open them up so that you can perform your most damaging combos.

While looked at and discussed through the lens of MKX, the lessons here apply almost across the board when it comes to fighting games. You can take what you learn here and implement it directly into a game like Street Fighter and see very similar results.

In this lesson, K&M go over hit confirming, run cancelling, footsies, frame traps and counter poking. Learning these concepts will up your basic fighting game skills quite substantially, so hit the jump and get started on The Art of Rushdown.

Awesome victories and awful heartbreaks; highlights from SoCal Regionals Prelude and The Common Wealth

We've been covering plenty of tournaments the past couple of days including SoCal's SCR Prelude and Virgina's TCW. We've chosen just a few moments that we'd like to share with you, half of which are actually heart breakers.

Waiting for Roses

PIE|Smug and TS|Sabin met in Grand Finals of Ultra Street Fighter 4 at TCW in the very lop-sided match up between Dudley and Dhalsim. Sabin's amazing skills made it look as though things weren't too bad for Dhalsim, giving Smug a big run for his money.

Despite his best efforts, Sabin simply could not keep Smug out forever. In our highlight here, Smug snags one of Dhalsim's outstretched limbs for a full combo. He then cancels a rose throw into an overhead... which leads to stun... which leads to red focus... which leads to more combo...

Ever wondered what a match looks like from Blanche's POV? Explore the beautifully detailed worlds of Mortal Kombat X with this PC roaming camera mod

This one is interesting. Gaming Vids 1984 has released a video depicting the Mortal Kombat X PC mod wherein they have free roam privileges with the game camera.

Instead of only watching the fight from behind the fourth wall, we can now get perspective from virtually any angle. Perhaps even more enticing, we can explore the incredibly detailed worlds of the different MKX stages.

Watch as you leave your traditional audience seats and fly into the Kotal Khan statue construction site, or underneath vicious the swell of The Kove. It's quite amazing just how much detail actually went into each stage. After seeing this, we wouldn't be surprised to find Easter eggs hidden away in places we'd never expect to be able to see.

We've actually referenced this mod previously in our Jason's face reveal story. As cool as that was, you'll actually be able to see footage Jason's face in this video, which you'll find after the jump.
