Just how difficult is the 'Perfect Sonic Boom' in Street Fighter 6? Maybe not as hard as you'd think...

Some time ago, it was revealed that Guile will be able to enhance the properties of his Sonic Boom projectile when used with "perfect timing" in Street Fighter 6. Some within the FGC might refer to this as a Just Frame Sonic Boom, implying that this version of the projectile requires execution of certain inputs within one-sixtieth of a second.

Needless to say, it's suspected that this so-called Perfect Sonic Boom will be quite difficult to perform consistently without a solid year or more of practice. During a Capcom showcase video that was uploaded back in the middle of June, Capcom developers were able to demonstrate a consistent usage of the Perfect Sonic Boom during the Street Fighter 6 segment. Just how difficult will it be to perform a Perfect Sonic Boom?

Fan purchased over $40,000 in Nintendo stock to ask about the future of the F-Zero series

When counting unlockable characters, Captain Falcon is among just 12 characters that have had a "perfect attendance" in the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Plenty of Captain Falcon fans might even go so far as to say that Captain Falcon is more of a mascot in the Super Smash Bros. series rather than a representative of the F-Zero series at this point. This is due to the fact that F-Zero hasn't had a new game since 2004 (F-Zero Climax), and that was a Japanese exclusive for the Game Boy Advance.

Needless to say, fans can only hold on to hope that there will someday be another entry in the F-Zero franchise. However, one fan recently decided to take matters into his own hands for the purpose of determining F-Zero's future. To do this, he first needed to buy about ¥5.6 million (about $43,212) in Nintendo stock.

Here are 5 characters that were absurdly strong in past Mortal Kombat games that most players probably don't know about

It feels like the Mortal Kombat franchise was only taken seriously as a competitive fighting game series beginning with Mortal Kombat 9, the first game developed after Midway became NetherRealm Studios. Still, a lot of the older Mortal Kombat titles did have their own metagames and tier lists.

As such, most players that follow the competitive scenes for Mortal Kombat 9, Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11 probably aren't too familiar with which characters were absurdly strong in older Midway Mortal Kombat titles. In a recent video upload on PNDK&M's YouTube channel, PND|Ketchup highlighted five characters that were absurdly strong in Mortal Kombat that most players probably don't know about.

Fighting game references we've spotted in Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course

After initially being announced back in 2019, then being delayed all the way to 2022, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is finally here. Cuphead, Mugman, and new character Ms. Chalice take on a gang of new enemies in a far away land to try and gather ingredients for a very special recipe.

Not only is Cuphead a fantastic game, but the developers are big time fighting game fans and littered some boss fights in the original game with clear references to Street Fighter and other classic titles. It seems like the Moldenhauer brothers may have added some more fighting game references into the new expansion, and now that we've got some time in with the latest DLC here are some of the potential ones we've spotted so far. Spoilers ahead.

This awesome fan art gives Darkstalkers characters beards in honor of Street Fighter 6's 'hot' trend

Capcom found a way to give iconic Street Fighter characters a sexy makeover with one very simple maneuver... throw a beard on 'em. What once was just your boring, unsexy Ryu became "Hot Ryu" in Street Fighter 5 with just the addition of some facial hair!

The "Hot" trend continues in Street Fighter 6 as not only Ryu has a beard this time, but Guile too. But what if we could make some of the Darkstalkers character hot too?... Artist Quasimodox had this same thought and produced some epic fan art showing what that might look like.

Dragon Ball FighterZ latest balance patch now lets Adult Gohan land 9 uppercuts in one combo with no assists during Level 1

The latest Dragon Ball FighterZ balance update dropped this week and one of its major focuses was to nerf the overly powerful Lab Coat 21 — which it did. Also included in the patch, however, were changes for everyone else on the playable roster, and the community is diving head first into figuring out what each fighter is now capable of and how strong (or weak) they might be now.

Scarlet_Photon on Twitter, an Adult Gohan player since day one (according to their bio), has been actively releasing new clips on Twitter that aim to push the limits of what this character can do here in version 1.31. Among his new capabilities, apparently Adult Gohan is now capable of landing nine whole Dragon Punches in a single combo without using any assists, and it's swaggy as hell.

Fans are attempting to remake one of the most broken fighting games of all time, Sailor Moon S

Just about the worst thing a fighting game can do is be painfully average because the more broken and jank a title ends up being, the more likely it is to find a dedicated niche audience that will push things to the absolute limit.

There's probably no better example of that than the infamous Sailor Moon S for the Super Nintendo, and the fan group TsukinoAi+ recently released the first teaser for their unofficial remake of the game.
