This Urien V-Trigger 2 combo in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition never ends

Though Urien's Aegis Reflector V-Trigger is often the star of the show when it comes to high level play for the character due to its strength and mix up potential, there are all kinds of fun things you can pull off with V-Trigger 2 as well in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition.

Twitter user rarirario222 put together a V-Trigger 2 combo that never ends (it does, but it feels like it doesn't because of how much is going on here). And it obeys all meter requirements too.

May uses normals to clash with Chipp's super in Guilty Gear Strive and she somehow wins the interaction

Guilty Gear Strive's Clash system can make for some truly hype moments. Two attacks interact and cancel each other out, with both characters very briefly freezing in place for added effect and a bit of added tension.

Despite supers being powerful attacks that typically take priority over other attacks due to their meter usage and risk for using them, it looks as though one of Chipp's isn't all that powerful on that front. A clip from Twitter user maychan__ shows a sequence where May is able to clash with the first three hits of Chipp's super using only normals, then ends up countering him before he can finish the animation leaving her at the advantage.

Nemo's Gill fights China's best Ken in this Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition first-to-10, will drink whisky if he wins

Nemo remains one of the fighting game community's Gill pioneers in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. Though he still brings out Urien in tournament, Nemo's Gill is one that is always a treat to watch and this top player remains one of the most skilled with the character in the entire world.

So, you can imagine that one of the best Gill players in the world going up against China's best Ken player, MaimaiKen, in a first-to-10 set is one of those barnburners you wouldn't want to miss. On top of that, Nemo notes in the video that if he wins the set, he'll drink whisky on stream — and we get to see if he does or doesn't in the YouTube upload we have below.

Skarlet looks bloody brilliant in these HD Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate screens

Skarlet has seen some mixed reactions from MK fans as some feel she isn't distinguished enough from the series' other female ninjas, but it seems she's a favorite video editor and virtual photographer TQT who has taken many gorgeous high definition MK11 screen shots of the character dressed in a handful of different outfits. We've nabbed a few of our favorites for a gallery to share with you today.

Ryu actually battles a stinky coat in odd promotional campaign between Street Fighter and a deodorizing spray in Japan

It may seem like there's a new Street Fighter cross promotion or product getting announced though not many of them are quite like this.

Guilty Gear Strive Directors want to share the joys of golden age arcade culture with modern players through the portal of powerful netcode

Having just come through 2020 and all the restrictions that put on us, the days of fighting game arcade culture seem especially far away right now. COVID-19 is far from the only or main culprit responsible for the decline of the arcade scene as home consoles and the internet have, in many ways, made the old approaches for doing things obsolete.

Those who have had the opportunity to visit and compete in a thriving local arcade know that there's a special charm that comes along with the experience, and that charm is something Guilty Gear Strive Directors Daisuke Ishiwatari and Akira Katano are hoping to capture in their brand new title. The funny thing about it? They're looking to achieve this goal through the online experience.

Kazuya Super Smash Bros. Ultimate meme reimagines if Kirby didn't survive and now it's a Mortal Kombat Fatality

The internet got hit with a surprise announcement during Nintendo's E3 2021 presentation this week. While fans expected a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character to be announced, the general chatter certainly didn't predict what we'd ultimately see revealed.

Tekken's own Kazuya Mishima is joining the battle and was unveiled by way of a special trailer that saw him perform his trademark "cliff drop" on several of the game's characters. At the end of the trailer, Kazuya dropped Kirby off the cliff, but he floated back up and survived. The internet, however, has reimagined this scene and not only made it so that Kirby doesn't come back, but it is now a meme-worthy Mortal Kombat Fatality.

Street Fighter games should get 4 balance updates a year

Fighting games were among the first to regularly update and fine tune themselves as we recall the days of Street Fighter 2 and its various iterations in the early 90s, but it seems that practice has been adopted and expanded upon in more modern times by almost everyone except Capcom's fighting game division.

With how much data flows back and forth between developers and players these days, balance updates should be a good deal more frequent than just once or twice a year. I'll go as far as to say that four times a year is still a bit conservative by today's standards, but it'd make for a good look for Street Fighter titles moving forward.
