Granblue Fantasy Versus 2.01 balance change Patch Notes released

Update: This story has been updated with full balance change patch notes for Granblue Fantasy Versus' 2.01 patch.

With this week seeing the arrival of Belial and the start of Season 2 for Granblue Fantasy Versus (more specifically, this is set to happen tomorrow it's hardly a surprise that we're getting the patch notes for the massive update right before it goes live.

This new update will add Belial to the game, some new story content together with him as well as a reset to the online ranked mode. The biggest thing people have been wondering about, though, is of course the balance changes. They've been released on the Japanese website officially and are being translated by myself for this article.

Kombat Pack 3 looking highly likely for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath at this point

It's technically been more than six months since Spawn's release concluded Mortal Kombat 11's second Kombat Pack, and though fans have been thoroughly sated with NetherRealm Studios' surprise Aftermath update, we may be on the brink of a Kombat Pack 3 announcement.

Though Mortal Kombat 11's Director, Ed Boon, hasn't officially given us anything yet, he has been teasing quite profusely in recent times with hints and nods that something big seems to be bubbling just beneath the surface.

Dragon Ball FighterZ actually pays homage to Master Roshi's notoriously perverted ways but you have to dig to find the references

Master Roshi is available as a DLC character in Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3 now. The old turtle hermit was released to much praise from fans, joining the likes of Dragon Ball Super Broly, Kefla, Ultra Instinct Goku, Jiren, and more as one of the game's top-notch additional fighters.

Bandai Namco and Arc System Works did a fantastic job bringing Roshi into the world of Dragon Ball FighterZ, filling him with a ton of personality, humor, and references to the source material, but one major aspect of the character initially looked like it was left out — Roshi's notoriously perverted ways. Goku and Krillin's master is unabashedly a horn dog throughout the entirety of his existence in anything related to the franchise, and though on the surface this trait was omitted from the fighting game (for obvious reasons) there actually do exist references to his girl-crazy lifestyle.

World class Zangief player shares Street Fighter 5 Season 5 tier list, places Russian wrestler above Cammy, Zeku, and Karin

BST|Fuudo has been doing wonderful work lately as he's been using his platform to highlight opinions of other very strong Japanese Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition players as they share tier lists for the game's fifth season of balance.

Today's focus lands on none other than one of the two best Zangief players on the planet: AZ|Kichipa-mu. Kichipa-mu has been one of the extremely few competitors who has stuck with the Russian wrestler despite his having some obvious difficulties against many fellow roster members, but it seems Zangief is in a relatively strong spot now... at least, according to the Japanese pro.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Daisy player cosplays the princess and absolutely destroys all of opponent's stocks in under 30 seconds

The Super Smash Bros. series is generally seen as one of the kindest for allowing pretty much anyone to continue to play matches for minutes before the final KO thanks to the stocks and limited invincibility after losing one, but even that is not always enough from getting completely picked apart by a godlike player in seconds.

Japanese Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player Umeki recently performed such a feat on stream by wiping out all three of a poor online Mario player's stocks in 30 seconds, and he did it all while dressed as Princess Daisy.

Real Shaolin disciple expertly recreates Mortal Kombat 11's martial arts-themed intro and victory animations

Certain aspects of Mortal Kombat tend to stand out above the others like the gratuitous violence and crazy specials plus finishers though the glue that holds it all together is the martial arts base that draws heavily from the real world and other forms of media.

Recently, a real Shaolin disciple in Ranton spent weeks dissecting and recreating the martial arts-themed character introduction and victory animations from Mortal Kombat 11, and his final video putting them all together is quite the fun, informative and impressive sight to behold.

Dragon Ball FighterZ community comes together to celebrate leading commentator's birthday with a rocking and heartwarming combo video

It'd be difficult to find someone who's done more for their favorite games than Damascus to the point that he's gone from a commentator and tournament organizer to an official ambassador for Bandai Namco.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ community decided to show their respects for him by creating their own combo compilation video to celebrate his birthday with Damascus recording his live reactions to watching it for the first time.

Mod turns gargantuan Street Fighter 5 character into Godzilla and it's an absolutely perfect fit

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition welcomed sister franchise Final Fight's Abigail onto the roster back in its second season, which was something of a moment as the character is physically larger than any other playable character in Street Fighter history.

The massive Madgear gang member turned mechanic towers over even the hulking Zangief, and often obstructs views of life bars and other parts of the game's HUD. This happens to make him a perfect fit for a mod like Godzilla, which has actually been brought to fruition thanks to the efforts of Sarcastigasm.

Free-for-all Mr. Game & Watch match rehashed in paper form by a dedicated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fan

Mr. Game & Watch is known for being one of the lightest characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Out of 80 characters so far, he is the third lightest while being just a little heavier than Jigglypuff and Pichu.

As such, Mr. Game & Watch's weight class has often been referred to as the "paper weight class." This is ironic since he takes on a two-dimensional appearance. You can easily draw Mr. Game & Watch on a sheet of paper without losing much depth.

Artist draws extra buff versions of ladies from fighting game titles like Street Fighter and Fatal Fury

You needn't see E. Honda's sumo abs more than once to realize that fighting game characters are almost always designed to be considerably more muscular than your average Joe Schmo, but one Japanese artist has taken things a full step further and imagined some of the ladies of Street Fighter (along with a few other titles) as incredibly cut body builders.

This might not be for everyone, but we get to see the likes of Cammy, Makoto, Alice, Sakura, and others as though they hit the heavy weights on the regular. Continue on to see the impressive work of Shopyun.

When Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition rollback turns your block into you being Crush Countered

The online experience in any fighting game can be a real cruel jerk when lag kicks in and you miss your game-winning combo. You'll scream and rage, and might even swear off the game for a bit, but sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh at how ridiculous the whole thing was.

While it wasn't me playing here, I've had numerous moments like this happen in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, and fortunately for DemonDan14, he was on the winning side of this exchange. His opponent, an M. Bison player, was not so lucky as the game's rollback had other plans for him.

No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda goes suddenly tight lipped after being asked if Travis Touchdown is headed to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has the most welcoming roster policy of any fighting game in history, and fans currently have their eyes on a particular franchise that hasn't seen any Smash representation yet: No More Heroes.

The creator of No More Heroes, Goichi "Suda51" Suda, has been openly vocal about wanting NMH's main protagonist, the Beam Katana-wielding Travis Touchdown, on the Smash Ultimate character select screen in the past and with a third installment of No More Heroes on the horizon the stage is perhaps more set than ever for a Travis Touchdown reveal. Suda was recently asked directly about the potential for this dream to come to fruition, but his response was a somewhat surprising "No comment".

Xian is currently the only Street Fighter player with a perfect Capcom Cup appearance record through 2020, but one competitor can still match him

Since Capcom has been forced to pull a massive audible and rethink the entire 2020 Pro Tour in an online setting, what was planned to be a massive 40-finalist Capcom Cup has turned into an event with just 20 finalists. Pair this with the fact that Covid has put a huge damper on international travel and competitors quickly find that their opportunities to qualify for the big end of the year dance have been significantly reduced in number.

There was one name I suspected had the best chance at being atop our Capcom Pro Tour Online Southeast Asia 2 results when I woke up to check early Sunday morning, and sure enough I found that RZR|Xian had indeed made the most of one of his last chances to garner Capcom Cup berth this year. That's especially interesting seeing as Xian is currently the only Street Fighter player who has made an appearance in every Capcom Cup since the event's inception in 2013.
