Street Fighter 5 V-Trigger activates with damage, new defensive mechanic 'V-Skill' detailed; game released in March 2016 & new stage confirmed

In the latest issue of ShortList.com's gaming magazine, an article that provides some juicy details on Street Fighter 5 was featured.

We learn that moves such as Nash's teleport and Chun-Li's double fireball can be used while V-Trigger is activated. In order to do so, players must fill up their V-Gauge by taking damage.

Additionally, we learn of a new mechanic called "V-Skill." This is a defensive mechanic that allows for characters like Ryu to parry and M. Bison to reflect fireballs. While information on V-Skill is scarce, we're guessing it also utilizes the V-Gauge.

Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7 - gameplay trailer, artwork and screen shots

Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7

Kazumi Mishima was revealed this evening for Tekken 7. For those not familiar with her place in the Tekken universe, she's actually the wife of Heihachi, and mother of Kazuya.

Harada has previously stated that neither Jinpachi, Heihachi or Lars possessed the Devil-gene, which lead many to believe, prior to Tekken 7's San Diego Comic-Con trailer, that Kazumi was the first to have it, and therefore passed it on to Kazuya and Jin.

The SDCC clip subsequently proved this theory to be correct.

During a trailer for Tekken 7, Heihachi was revealed to be Kazumi's killer, which happened before the events of the first entry in the Tekken series.

New BlazBlue due in 2016, may feature tag-team battles, over 30 characters -- creator Toshimichi Mori seeks fan feedback

The next installment of Arc System Works's BlazBlue 2D fighting game series may be coming, "sometime in 2016."

Or at least, that's the tentative release date BlazBlue's creator, Toshimichi Mori, is eyeing.

"I am planning to have the next story sometime next year and the next game will have the last 25% of the story," Mori said in an interview with Siliconera.

For this next game, Mori is thinking of pushing the playable character count up from 28 to over 30. Will Nine and Jubei -- characters Mori addressed in this previous interview -- finally be playable?

He is also toying around with the idea of a tag-team mechanic -- and is seeking fan feedback on it.

Mortal Kombat X review: NetherRealm's blockbuster gore-fest is here to stay

I've played Mortal Kombat 9, I've played Injustice: Gods Among Us, and now, I've played Mortal Kombat X -- the latest title in NetherRealm Studios’ fighting game repertoire. The blockbuster gore-fest that is MKX is on the verge of its official release, and we here at EventHubs were given the opportunity to get quite a bit of hands-on time with the new current-gen fighter.

Today, we’ve prepared for you a written review of Mortal Kombat X on PlayStation 4. How does this installment stack up against its predecessor? Are Variations as much of a game changer as NRS intended them to be? And, damn it! Who's next?! We’ll be answering all of that (well, most of it) and more right here, right now.

From the start, Mortal Kombat X’s presentation comes barreling at you like a demon bat (Puggles) right out of Hell. This game is beautiful; from the detailed backdrop that lines the main menu screen (dependent upon which Faction you pledge to) to the rich character models that interact on the character select screen, this game is an absolute joy to look at. Lighting and weather effects are realistic, severed limbs are disgustingly intricate, and characters even take battle damage as the fight rages on.

It’s everything you could ever want and/or need in a Mortal Kombat game.
