Last week, we delved into the chances of seeing any sort of Luke gameplay or showcase for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition at Tokyo Game Show 2021 since Capcom was more than vague about their presentation.

The developer has now publicly updated their TGS plans, which seems to give a fairly definitive answer as to whether or not SF5's final DLC will be making an appearance.

Some of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe's Heroic Brutalities were so comically bad they were actually awesome

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was an interesting experiment. What was meant to be an epic clash between two iconic franchises ended up being a 3D fighter with an identity crisis that tried to capture that bloody Mortal Kombat magic all while obeying a Teen rating and retaining the good name of several fan favorite super heroes.

It was an awkward meeting in the middle of both IPs, but while the game certainly wasn't all bad, it did have several Fatality-style finishers that were... far from great. As I think back, some of them were so comically bad and cheesy that they are actually really awesome and entertaining.

Here's how Season 5 DLC characters have performed right after release in Street Fighter 5

Adding new characters via DLC has become as common staple in fighting games as in other gaming genres, and very often said newcomers tend to be overpowered to incentivize players to purchase them. That's clearly not the case here in the fifth Season of Street Fighter 5.

We don't have Luke (the fifth and final Season 5 DLC fighter) quite yet, but we do have first month statistics for Dan, Rose, Akira, and Oro thus far thanks to Capcom's Shadaloo C.R.I. website. We can see how each of these four have performed across four various ranking categories to give us an idea of how hard the DLC of Season 5 has been hitting early on.

With a focus on low tier characters and unorthodox teams, the longtime top-level competitor has crafted an awesome touch of death combo using a squad consisting of Captain Commando, Sabretooth, and Hayato. We start with Commando on point and a little help from the big, bad X-Men villain.

Remembering Street Fighter 4's 5 biggest blunders

Street Fighter 4 is largely responsible for bringing the franchise back from the brink as well as casting the fighting game scene into a golden era, but as much as we 09ers love to look back on the title with fond memories, things weren't always as rosy as our glasses make us think.

In this week's EventHubs Podcast segment, I dig into what I feel were the five biggest blunders Capcom made during Street Fighter 4's lifespan. None of these were large enough to turn the masses away, obviously, but they were some pretty gnarly errors that we're still surprised by today.

Scorpion and Sub-Zero aren't guest characters in Tekken 7 but they should be based on these killer mods

Tekken 7 has seen its fair share of guest characters from various video games and franchises over the last few years. From Street Fighter's own Akuma to Negan from The Walking Dead, the latest entry in the long running fighting game has a nice spread of outside faces among its roster.

What we haven't seen in Tekken, though, is Mortal Kombat characters join the fight. Based on these awesome mods, however, perhaps that's something that needs to change down the road.

19 year old Korean artist draws Guilty Gear characters in style of traditional Japanese art

When we stumbled across the work of the young Han Gong, a 19 year old Korean artist, we just couldn't stop scrolling. It was actually the image of Potemkin rising up to heavenly heights that caught us first, but it was that image of Nagoriyuki in what looks like a sea of blood that kept us going.

These images all seem to nod back to more traditional Japanese art, and perhaps it's the double whammy of Nagoriyuki being a samurai that makes him pair so well with it.
