You probably recall the massive Sony Pictures Entertainment leak last year wherein thousands of e-mails and private documents were exposed to the public light.

ArsTechnica has searched through WikiLeaks and discovered some of these messages. Hit the jump to see some of their findings.

Poison's odd hurtbox lets you do some unique and incredibly damaging combos on her with Ken, Ryu, Sakura, Seth and others

When the patch for Ultra came out and received the five most recent characters in Street Fighter 4, one of the first complaints players had was about some of the new characters' hurtboxes.

Elena was probably the most notable example as her unique design caused many standard combos to whiff half way through. Others like Poison and Hugo had some issues wherein hurtboxes would completely disappear at times. People voiced their frustrations, and in the 1.04 patch, developers tweaked things a bit to make these characters somewhat more like the rest of the cast.

Though hurtbox issues have been traditionally in the newest characters' favor, ks_tali has created a video showing that Poison is actually susceptible to a few otherwise impossible combos. Tali explains one of the combos from the video:

"cl.hp xx sonic boom FADC with Seth normally grants +7 frame advantage. On Poison, the boom always hits extremely meaty, granting about +13 advantage, at least from what I tested."

Scorpion is a balanced, all-around fighter while Sub-Zero is about controlling space; SupermanSajam breaks down these Mortal Kombat originals

SupermanSajam has been hard at work creating breakdowns for much of the current 25-character cast of Mortal Kombat X. Today we're featuring two of his breakdowns for the poster boys of the Mortal Kombat franchise, Scorpion and Sub-Zero.

Sajam's breakdowns cover each character's notable normals, strings, special moves, differences between fight style variations and basic game plans. In a brand new game like MKX, these breakdowns are perfect tools to help you get basic ideas of how each kombatant plays, and can help you immensely as you look for a character to main.

According to Sajam, Scorpion is not heavily footsie-based, but rather gets in with special moves so he can start his vortex pressure. Sub-Zero fights with more of a zoner's approach, manipulating where and when his opponent can traverse the screen.

Hit the jump to check out the breakdowns.

7-hit juggle still gets full animation U2?! Omega Dudley makes his USF4 counterpart look pathetic in this awesome combo video

Just the other day, Rhuel47 showed was Ultra Street Fighter 4 is all about. Today, he returns to make us forget about all of that with this excellent Omega mode combo video featuring everyone's favorite pugilist. (Sorry, Balrog!)

This CMV features setups that focus on two things: scoring the maximum situational damage and pushing the mode's juggle properties as far as they can go.

Both of these themes are very greatly represented in this compilation, as there are combos that manage to tally up 7 juggle hits before landing a full-animation U2, some that deal 600+ damage, and many others.

To see Omega Dudley in action, be sure to watch Rhuel47's latest combo video below.

Don't know where to start with Mortal Kombat X? Perfect Legend teaches you how to 'Practice Like a Pro' in this training mode tutorial

As an editor for EventHubs, I've been watching Mortal Kombat X content for months now. I've seen developers reveal characters, game mechanics and even go behind the scenes and show trivial, fun bonus content. Over the course of the past few months, I felt like I gained a decent grasp of the game and how to play it.

I sat down last night to actually play for the first time and it wasn't until I reached the character select screen that it truly hit me. Right now there are 25 characters with three variations each. We'll be getting even more characters in the coming weeks. That's 75+ characters I'll need to understand if I'm to play this game competitively.

It was then that I began to feel a bit overwhelmed. "Where do I even start?"

Top Mortal Kombat player RZR|Perfect Legend has graciously made a tutorial video titled "Practicing like a Pro in Mortal Kombat X." In it, he tells us how he goes about delving into the game to gain your bearings.

He tells you what to look for first when beginning with a character. From there, he teaches you how to flesh out your findings to decide whether or not a character is right for you.

So, if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed by that huge roster, take a breath, hit the jump and learn one step at a time how to Practice Like a Pro.

Juri highlight video shows you don't need Dudley or Yun to lay down the insane pressure – red focus into Ultra 1 concepts, dash mix ups, combos, more

Juri hasn't seen a lot of love at the highest level of tournament play in Ultra Street Fighter 4 lately, but that doesn't mean there aren't those pushing the character to her absolute limit.

RnK Clan has released a video highlighting the work of their player Lucius. Titled "Feng Shui Engine Madness", it lives up to its name in every way. Lucius's Juri is deadly even without her Ultra 1, but once she has it, almost every fighter encountered falls to her.

If you've ever thought about playing Juri, this is a player to imitate. The pressure Lucius is able to exert through high-low and dash mix ups along with a healthy serving of frame traps is stunning. Even when extremely down on health, the Juri main appears to make his opponent's advantage melt away in seconds.

To see what a threat Juri can be, check out the highlight video below.

9 side-switches and a super jump in one combo - These hitboxes are nuts! Iron Fist combo video Flow Like Water explores the characters' full potential

After the massive success of Marvel's recent Daredevil series on Netflix, a lot of people are stoked for the upcoming Iron Fist series, set to launch at some point in 2016. What fantastic timing by HT MrFlubbs, then, to pick this opportune moment to share a Iron Fist combo video that goes above and beyond what we've come to expect from the character.

This video focuses mainly on Iron Fist as a solo character - the only moment I can recall with any help is a THC activation featuring Nemesis - and the results are astounding. In one single combo, Iron Fist manages to switch sides more times than most of us change underwear in a week.

Hit the jump to check out the supreme martial artist in his full glory.
