801 Strider is featured in nearly every moment, but who took the number one spot? See Capcom Fighter's top 5 moments from CEO 2015 here

From incredible game play across multiple titles to huge upsets and wild theatrics, CEO 2015 was one of the most hype tournaments of the year.

Capcom Fighters have selected their top five moments from the weekend and have organized them into another one of their Pro Tour count downs. Certainly it must've been hard to choose just five from this jam-packed event.

These count downs focus on the Capcom Pro Tour, so all of the moments here involve Street Fighter 4. Sorry in advance, but that means EG|K-Brad's Stone Cold entrance is disqualified.

Still, with amazing performances from players like MCZ|Mago, Kazunoko, MCZ|Daigo and others, this countdown is sure to entertain. Hit the jump to check out the list.

'Its players are artists, performing principles of artistic composition' - the Public Broadcasting System tips their hat to the Street Fighter crowd

Yet another example of the FGC reaching through into the public limelight. The Public Broadcasting System has done a short segment on Street Fighter, bridging our niche community to general audiences, hopefully giving the latter a better understanding and appreciation for what we do.

PBS analyzes the basics of footsies, zoning and fighting game strategy to help give the layman an idea of exactly what's going on in a Street Fighter match. It certainly isn't an exhaustive dissection, and yes, their execution isn't exactly on point, but that's not the point.

As highlighted in the opening moments of the segment, the community should be proud that we've carried our hobby forward with such vigor and hype that we're now impressing other sectors of society.

Just a few things you'll learn in the video: How to play Street Fighter, the corner is Street Fighter purgatory and Dhalsim has Laffy Taffy arms... hit the jump to see it.

Bill Trinen, interpreter for Shigeru Miyamoto and Senior Product Marketing Manager for Nintendo of America, will be competing at EVO in Smash 4

Main purpose of Street Fighter 5's beta is to test out online infrastructure; Sony key in assisting with cross platform play

A clever Redditor, Jer-Bear92, noticed a familiar name pop up in pool D46 for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The name registered was TH|Trintroll.

That name suggests Bill Trinen, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Nintendo of America. Despite his job title, most gamers would recognize him as Shigeru Miyamoto's interpreter. The TH most likely stands for Nintendo Treehouse.

While this might have been interpreted as simple trolling, Trinen actually confirmed it to be true on Twitter this morning! Apparently, the Nintendo employee plays Rosalina.

Check out his confirmation below.

Predator coming to Mortal Kombat X in July, Klassic Fatalities confirmed and likely to be released in next update

Mortal Kombat X is gearing up for a big update.

Firstly, it looks as though Klassic Fatalities have been confirmed. As with previous DLC, the proof lies in The Krypt, where we see some of the upcoming content listed in the "Finishers" section.

In the past, we've seen both Jason Voorhees and Tanya -- the game's first two DLC characters -- appear listed in The Krypt a short time before they were released. Now, we see that Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Sonya all have a third fatality listed.

This time, the reveal goes one step further, as you can see in the images below that the fatalities can actually be found in each character's move list. The names of these finishing moves fall match up with fatalities found in previous MK games, such as Scorpion's Toasty fatality.

Hard-hitting link combos and a strong up-close fighting style put a fresh spin on the typically zone-heavy Ryu - EventHubs E3 impressions

Next up on EventHubs' Street Fighter 5 impressions is Ryu.

Cammy can still put a quick hurt on her opponent in Street Fighter 5, but her offense requires more thought now - EventHubs E3 impressions

Our final Street Fighter 5 character impressions piece from E3 focuses on Cammy.

In Street Fighter 5, Cammy does more of what she's known for: rushdown. She still hits hard (even more so due to the game's heightened damage output), but players won't be able to secure a win simply off of one knockdown.

You'll find our full breakdown below, and if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments.

Ravenous Mileena kills her opponent with her hind quarters in this brand new Mortal Kombat X Brutality

Mileena has always been known for her soft curves and her sharp edges, but she's actually using the former to deliver the finishing blow to opponents in her newest Brutality.

This new ender comes only in Mileena's Ravenous variation. At this point, we're not sure if there are any other requirements, but the final hit must be her hop throw combo wherein she jumps over her foe, breaks their arms and sits on their head.

This is one of a collection of brand new Brutalities released in the most recent MKX patch.

This character looks awesome. A good portion of leaked content for Predator in Mortal Kombat X has surfaced in the past few hours, and we've got some of the essentials here for you.

Pokkèn Tournament release date, new character(s), and more expected to be revealed July 3 via live stream

Namco Bandai were among the fighting game companies that were fairly quiet at this year's E3. With no real announcements for games such as Tekken 7, Pokkèn Tournament, or even a new Soul Calibur (which many suspected would be revealed at the expo), fans were left wondering when they'd see new info for their favorite 3D fighting games.

A couple of days ago, we found out that an important Tekken 7 announcement will take place next week, and now it seems as though we'll be seeing something new from Pokkèn Tournament -- Namco Bandai's Pokèmon fighter -- even sooner. According to Serebii.net, a live stream will air on Nico Nico this Friday July 3 at 8 p.m. JST / 7 a.m. EDT / 4 a.m. PDT.

Serebii's report states that we can expect to see an official console release date reveal, along with new Pokemon and more gameplay information. A tournament will also be aired in which guests will get a chance to play as Gengar and the newly announced character(s).

Check back Friday for the Pokkèn Tournament live stream.
