Laura hits the deepest and meatiest standing medium punch behind her opponent I've ever seen in Street Fighter 5

When you've been playing fighting games for a while, eventually you'll run into a player who is incredibly experienced with their favorite character. They'll have such a great understanding of their main that they'll hit you with a set up or combo that you've never seen before.

As someone who fancies himself a lab monster, the kind of plays you see from people who clearly have extensive knowledge of their character are my favorite in fighting games. It's those absolutely filthy ones that almost look like they're bugs or glitches, but are incredibly effective. Here we have one of those types of set ups for Laura in Street Fighter 5.

Super Broly is releasing tomorrow for Dragon Ball FighterZ, here's everything you need to know about the exiled Saiyan

Super Broly will be releasing tomorrow on December 5. This legendary Saiyan is the final character that is joining the Season 2 roster of Dragon Ball FighterZ.

New character reveal for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate feels highly likely at The Game Awards despite the lack of confirmation

We recently learned that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Jump Force, Dead or Alive 6, Mortal Kombat 11, and Samurai Shodown are nominations for The Game Awards' Fighting Game of the Year. Considering Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's record breaking 15 million sales, many feel that Nintendo will be taking the prize this year.

In addition to the awards, there were a number of reveals that kept fans engaged to the yearly show last time. NetherRealm Studios, for example, opted to hold onto the Mortal Kombat 11 announcement for this specific event.

For Smash fans, the first character of the Fighters Pass was unveiled just before the game was officially launched to the public. It was at the The Game Awards 2018 where we learned about the inclusion of Joker from the Persona series.

Zangief's second V-Skill in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition should be Green Hand... right?

New information on secondary V-Skills for the cast of Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is slowly but surely trickling in as we've gotten a few glimpses of new techniques for a few characters already, but we're particularly interested in seeing what Capcom does with the godfather of grappling: Zangief.

While there's a good bit of mystery as to what developers will give the majority of the roster, expectations for Zangief's VS2 are very heavily skewed towards one attack in particular. His Banishing Flat (aka Green Hand) has been conspicuously absent from SF5 since day one, and while the majority of fans are all but certain this the right answer for a second V-Skill, commentator UltraDavid and pro player RB|Snake Eyez aren't so sure.

To those of you who haven't been formally introduced to Lowain in Granblue Fantasy: Versus yet, welcome to one of the most intriguing and peculiar fighting game character concepts we've seen in a while.

Lowain is, first and foremost, a bro.

Somehow developers incorporated all of this into his actual fighting style.
