Bayonetta looks incredibly good in Smash 4; see her character breakdown, touch of death combos and gameplay by ZeRo here

She's only been available for a few days now, but Bayonetta is making some pretty big first impressions in Smash 4.

With incredible combo potential, edge guard and more, the witch character is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Even scarier is her potential in the hands of Smash 4's most dominant player, TSM|ZeRo.

We have footage of ZeRo taking her into ranked matches, a tutorial so you can get started, a combo exhibition and more. Check out one of her touch of death combos below:

5 Rests in 30 seconds?! Watch Jigglypuff Restle her opponents into submission in this video

You all know what it's like some days. You get home after a hard day of work, kick your shoes off, and just decide that you need some rest. But when it comes to Smash Bros., unless you're a Jiggs main yourself, Rest just might be the last thing you'd ever want to experience.

Jigglypuff might not be the best character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but if there's one thing you have to learn when fighting against her, it's to never count her out. One single mistake can lead to a deadly Rest attack, and unfortunately for the opponents, this video shows just how bad it can get if you're not prepared.

As the headline already spoiled, this video containts 5 rests... in 30 seconds. That's easily the most I've seen in such a short amount of time, but let us know in the comments if you have us beat.

Bayonetta can 0-to-death you off the top of the screen, off the side of the screen, do 47% damage with one combo - Smash's newcomer comes in swinging

Last night, Hideki Kamiya's latest star, Bayonetta, joined the fray in Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS, and bringing her signature flair with her, as videos here show her pull off combos from 0% to 47%, 0% to death off the top of the screen and 0% to death off the side of the screen.

Now, granted, combos in the Super Smash Bros. series aren't as clear cut as in many other fighting games, thanks to a mechanic called Directional Influence (DI for short), which allows the attackee to control some of their aerial movement while being attacked, and as such, these combos aren't always guaranteed. I have a hard time seeing how you could DI out of that forward-air loop, though...

With that said, though, it's still a very impressive display, and if this is what Bayonetta has to show day 1, then Sheik just might have to drop from the top spot and hand her crown over to the new Queen of Smash before long.

'You know how many people told me I was horrible at Smash and would never be good?' - ZeRo's gives tips on how to improve as a fighting game player

In his latest video, he explains what to do to improve as a Smash player, but everything he says really applies to other fighting games as well. He outlines it in 5 steps, and explains how to go about these steps, and why it is they're important.

While this video does clock in at 20 minutes of length, it's a good watch if you need some motivation to improve as a player, and will definitely help you avoid some of the pitfalls that would make you stand still, or perhaps even deteriorate, skillwise.

Hit the jump to see ZeRo's thoughts on main characters, how to practice, fighting game mindset and more.

Rumor: Smash Bros. game in development for Nintendo's NX console, may be 'complete edition' of Smash 4

The CEO of Tokyo-based Kantan Games, Serkan Toto, dropped a bit of a bombshell today when he stated that Bandai Namco is working on several launch titles for Nintendo's new console, code named the NX.

Trash talk and winning are the most important parts for a good FGC villain - Latest Core-A Gaming video analyzes what makes good heel players

Most compelling stories need an interesting villain to keep the audiences' attention. That's not just the case with stories, though, reality is much the same way - without a villain to go against the hero, the conflict won't have as much payoff.

The fighting game community is no different, and whether you love them or hate them, it's hard to deny that heel personalities, "villains" so to speak, are a fairly large part of many competitive fighting games.

In their latest video, Core-A Gaming analyze what makes a good villain, drawing from well-known FGC examples such as TSM|Leffen and PG|Filipino Champ, but it's not just huge names. The video also delves into BOTB|TommyGunz, and what helps or hurts his chances as a good villain.

There's a lot of interesting stuff in this video, so if you want to hear some reasoning for why heels are good for the scene, just want to relive some very cocky moments, or perhaps even grab some pointers to start channeling your inner villain person,a hit the jump and check it out.

One percent!

When you've got a life lead and are only 10 seconds away from securing a victory, you have to be elusive. In Smash 64, KeroKeroppi learned that more movement is required to run out the clock.

In game 3 of his set against COG|Wizzrobe, KeroKeroppi's Pikachu sat with a 1% life lead. All he needed to do was evade Wizzrobe's Yoshi for 10 more in-game seconds and he would have taken the game.

Unfortunately, the Pikachu player remained stationary for a second too long.
