Street Fighter 5's M. Bison scores crazy damage - This 70% combo will leave your opponents stunned

While we certainly know Street Fighter 5's damage can be quite high, we've never seen such a large damage combo without using a critical art. UM Tyrant shows us how it's done with a 70% combo using the tyrant himself, M. Bison.

The combo is off of a jump in, and uses two meters to reach stun, as well as Bison's V-Trigger throughout. At the end of it all, it uses three meter for 644 damage (70% on Cammy), and is sure to make it's mark on would be opponents.

With a large amount of the game's elements being combined for this combo, it gives us an interesting look into the potential Bison may have, especially while in V-Trigger.

Here's a look at the visual evolution of Street Fighter 5 thus far

We're surely no where near the final build of Street Fighter 5 yet, but because Capcom has graciously included the community in a large portion of the game's developmental process, we've been privy to the story arch of at least three chapters in said process.

Since the build we saw at the Capcom Pro Tour Finals, there have been a handful of changes to the game. On the more obvious side of the spectrum, we've gained a few new characters and stages.

It's also interesting to see, however, how developers have played around with and tweaked smaller, yet still important aspects of the game. For instance, the HUD.

The original build had a revenge gauge, and full color portraits of the characters next to their health bars. Now, we've got a stun bar there, and a totally different approach to character portraits.

What other tweaks have been made? See for yourself after the jump.

Pokkén Tournament coming to Wii U in Spring 2016, trailer reveals new Pokemon

After the announcement that Pokkén Tournament would be coming to arcades, some players in regions without a booming arcade scene were feeling left out. Furthermore, without a console release, the tournament longevity of the game could already be brought into question.

Well, question no more because The Pokemon Company and Bandai Namco have just announced that their collaboration is coming out for the Wii U worldwide in Spring of 2016. The version will also include a new Pokemon that is revealed in the trailer.

Check out the game play images and the official trailer below.

Guilty Gear Revelator officially out in Japan, over 13 hours of direct feed action shows off gameplay changes, new characters, and more

With many people, myself included, hungry to see more of Guilty Gear Revelator, we can finally begin to see players playing the game through full release. It's officially out in Japan, and the streamer Joniosan was kind enough to get us a huge amount of choice footage.

Joniosan mirrored a direct feed livestream happening last night, with over 13 hours of Revelator footage for us to dissect. This is a combination of both training mode play and actual matches, a number of which are at a high level.

In the stream archive, the first actual match takes place at 31 minutes in. At various points throughout Johnny and Jack-O are used to a great degree, allowing us to see those characters, and to be able to watch players experiment with new changes to old favorites.

Six sonic booms in one combo, a combo using all of his specials, and more - Nash brings the style in this Street Fighter 5 combo video

It seems Nash is becoming the poster child for stylish combo potential in Street Fighter 5. SitverGold brings us a Nash combo video trying to think outside the box, with many interesting options and strings.

The combos are done on both a training dummy, and occasionally a live opponent, with lots of unique combos we haven't seen before, like having six sonic booms in a single combo.

This combo video does a good job of stretching what we know about how combos can work for Nash, even combos utilizing his V-Trigger, and how it works in the corner.

Street Fighter 5 Cammy combo video shows a ton of flexibility, kara grab options - JoshGG shows we've only scratched the surface of what SF5 offers

As more people get hands on time with Street Fighter 5, we see more and more knowledge and tech become available through all sorts of players, and today is no exception. JoshGG gives us two videos, one being a Cammy combo video, and the other being a kara grab tutorial that shows quite a bit of what the killer bee has to offer.

The combo video is incredibly comprehensive, exploring many combos out of various regular and command normals, crush counter combos, and V-Trigger combos, showing us how flexible Cammy's combo game is.

The next video is a kara grab tutorial, displaying three different kara grabs Cammy can utilize. Most intriguing about it, however, is that one of them uses a normal that normally moves her backwards, but ends up being the most effective kara grab tool.

LiangHuBBB goes on a 107 game win streak in SF5, condenses it into a single CMV to highlight some outstanding combos and tech

How confident are you feeling in Street Fighter 5 right now? While Ultra Street Fighter 4 knowledge will certainly be a boon to those jumping into the beta, LiangHuBBB apparently stands well above the competition.

He hit a 107 match win streak during the beta before finally being defeated by Gagapa. Not only does this make for some nice bragging rights, but LiangHuBBB thought it'd make for good instruction. He condensed his streak into a single CMV that focuses on character tech, combos, and setups with Ryu. If you're looking to break his record, then you might want to study his win streak.

You can take a look at the footage below.

One touch stun combos with Ryu, a 70% combo with Bison and a 55 hit combo with Chun-Li; EL Chakotay shows off some heavy hitters in Street Fighter 5

Round and round we continue to go with the Street Fighter 5 online beta, and we have a few big damage combos for you to try out during the ongoing five day world wide beta test.

These combos show Ryu, Bison and Chun-Li at their strongest, requiring an activated V-Trigger to perform. They're not all that impractical, as Bison's requires a jump in in the corner, and Ryu's echoes his unblockable Denjin set up from Third Strike.

It may be more realistic that Chun-Li would score a 54-hit combo, as the one in today's video requires a stray fireball to hit, but we expect combos like these to be seen regularly should the game's properties remain widely the same.

These combos are yet another testament to the incredibly high damage output that Street Fighter 5 currently boasts. Hit the jump to see them.

Nash can hit nearly 600 damage in one flashy combo, deals 665 stun - add this sick Street Fighter 5 combo to your arsenal

With the recent Street Fighter 5 beta stress tests taking place, we've been granted a slew of fresh tech videos from players around the globe.

Today, we have a strong Nash combo that begins with a Crush Counter. By linking forward + light kick after a heavy punch CC, Nash players can transition into a full-blown combo and dish out a ton of damage and stun.

This sequence uses up both of Nash's meters (Critical Art and V-Skill), but the pay off is worth it. The devastating combo was first discovered by Windalfr and , but recorded and uploaded by Redwolfxx.

Bison's mid-air mix ups, Birdie's decimating counter poke and more; see some of the strongest tactics for Street Fighter 5 characters thus far

We know the identities of half the cast of the 16-character Street Fighter 5 thus far. Today, we're looking at four of these first fighters, Chun-Li, Nash, Birdie and M. Bison, in an attempt to identify some of their strongest tactics on the battle field.

This is, by no means, law for the game, but rather our humble observations from the footage of and brief time we've had with it at this point. We'll get started with the strongest woman in the world, Chun-Li.

Chun-Li's Standing Medium Punch

When you think of Chun-Li, you usually think "legs," but that's not quite the direction we're going here. Chun's standing medium punch is actually one of her most useful tools. It has a ton of advantage, making it a core combo connector, which you can use to link many moves after.

She can combo into her crouching medium kick, which leads into Lightning Legs as a bread and butter. With V-Trigger activated, she can link a crouching heavy punch. Chun's standing medium punch is also a very useful meaty attack on your opponent's wake up.

Injustice vs. Street Fighter, female Gambit, and Spider-Man webs the camera: ConnectiCon and Special Edition NYC cosplay gallery

Our friend Jason Laboy a.k.a. Jason24cf took a couple of trips down to both the Special Edition NYC and ConnectiCon conventions recently in order to check out what each expo had in store. During his visits, Jason -- now a photographer for Cosplay Culture -- captured hundreds of photos of cosplayers attending the events.

Today, Laboy has given us the opportunity to share a number of great shots of fighting game-related cosplayers with our readers. So, that's exactly what we're going to do.

In this story, you will find characters from a slew of different games, including Street Fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Marvel vs. Capcom, Darkstalkers, and more. Some of our personal favorites include the giant Street Fighter vs. Injustice standoff, female Gambit, and the epic Spider-Man firing a web at the camera.

'You're still standing? Snot a problem' - Birdie's booger scores the first idle stance KO we've ever seen in Street Fighter 5

I'll preface this by saying that I never thought I'd have to write the words "booger knock out" ever in my life... Now that that's out of the way, let's get into it.

As some of you might know, in Street Fighter 5 Birdie shamelessly picks a booger and tosses it at the opponent when he's left standing idle for a short amount of time. What's interesting is, this projectile actually deals a tiny bit of damage.

With the recent beta stress tests in Europe, MDZ Ricky managed to pull off the unthinkable: knocking out the opponent using Birdie's booger toss.

After landing a command throw that appeared to be the finishing blow, the Ryu player miraculously remained living with a magic pixel of health. Believing there was no way to mount a comeback, the Ryu player gave up, leaving them open to the booger beat-down. (How many times can I write "booger" in this story?...)

Though this tactic is not very practical, MDZ Ricky managed to land it fair and square. You can check out the footage after the jump.
