Desk highlights attacks with the OTG property using epic sequences in latest Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition combo video

Desk has released a new combo video for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. The theme of this combo video focuses on moves with the OTG — off the ground — property.

Although Street Fighter 5 features its fair share of moves with the OTG property, it's actually fairly rare to see them since it's extremely simple to quick rise against knockdowns. However, it is important to understand that these type of moves can show up after scoring a Crush Counter sweep or other hard knockdown.

Light releases new tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 13.0.1

The world's best Fox competitor in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Moist|Light, has released a new tier list for version 13.0.1 of the game. Characters have been declared to be either top five, top tier, high tier, mid tier or low tier.

Based on how the bottom three categories are labeled as being "not ordered," this seems to indicate that the top 24 challengers have been purposely ordered on Light's tier list. If this is true, then it means that Light believes that his main character, Fox McCloud, is the 16th best character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Lab Coat Android 21 DLC V Jump scan for Dragon Ball FighterZ reveals start of new super

Very little information was revealed about Lab Coat Android 21 when she was first unveiled to be a DLC character coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ. Rather than just being an alternate costume for Android 21, there's plenty of evidence to suggest that Lab Coat Android 21 is her own unique character, but we couldn't say for sure that this was actually the case.

However, a scan of a V Jump magazine featuring information and screenshots of Lab Coat Android 21 has revealed quite a bit. Thanks to the translations of our own Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor, we know what's being said here.

Although there's no true online ranking mode in Guilty Gear Strive, it's considered to be quite an achievement to reach the hidden 11th "floor," better known as the celestial floor. Only the best of the best will ever be able to reach this floor.

A certain Tweet that has been blowing up indicated that Koyasu Koki, age 28, was successful in reaching the celestial floor in Guilty Gear Strive. This is notable as Koyasu Koki is the son of Koyasu Takehito, the voice actor for Zato-1 in Guilty Gear Xrd and Guilty Gear Strive.

It's noted in KombatNY's Tweet that his tier list is fully ordered. He also mentions that characters like Raiden and Noob Saibot could have some unfound potential, but this likely won't matter since NetherRealm Studios has since moved on from updating Mortal Kombat 11.

How T. Hawk completely broke the rules of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo

Thunder Hawk first joined the roster of world warriors in Super Street Fighter 2 as essentially the second main grappler in the series, and it seems that Capcom were still very much in the process of learning how the archetype should work.

It's no real secret that T. Hawk's Super Turbo version is arguably the most busted grappler in all of Street Fighter, but Jmcrofts just released a new video breaking down how the big bird boy broke all the rules to earn that title.

A double KO with Sora during Stamina mode is made hilarious with Kingdom Hearts' slow motion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The inclusion of Sora in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate brings with him a unique Easter egg from the Kingdom Hearts series. You kind of have to go out of your way to experience seeing and hearing this Easter egg since it can only happen during Stamina mode.

Whenever Sora lands the finishing blow during Stamina mode, the fade to white effect from the Kingdom Hearts series will happen in slow motion. It's just like whenever a boss is defeated in the Kingdom Hearts series.

When One Punch Man artist Yusuke Murata draws fighting game characters...

One Punch Man is a relatively new manga, but shortly after its debut in 2009 it boomed in popularity and became one of the most recognizable mangas of modern times. Of course, a huge part of One Punch Man's success comes directly from its illustrator, Yusuke Murata, who has a special appreciation for fighting games if his Twitter posts are any indication.

Murata has a ton of beautiful content on his social media, but we were able to find a handful of nods to characters from Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Marvel vs. Capcom, and even caught a particularly intriguing buff Beerus Dragon Ball FighterZ doodle.

The top 5 best and worst DLC launch performances across Street Fighter 5's history

It feels admittedly pretty weird that after nearly 6 years and 29 DLC character launches, Street Fighter 5 has reached the conclusion of its main content support.

The game has seen plenty of ups and downs over all of that time, and a lot of that is reflected across SF5's five seasons of DLC fighters where some showed up ready to make a splash — and others not so much.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's crazy modding community is about to get even crazier with its biggest limitation seemingly solved

The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 scene remains one of the most dedicated in the FGC even 10 years after its initial release, and that goes doubly for their modding community.

A small but talented group of programmers already started adding brand new playable characters to the monumental fighting game like Street Fighter's Urien and X-Men's Cyclops, but they've always looked at least a bit off due to limitations. That's seemingly all about to change, however.
