The ever great HiFight released a new SF6 breakdown video covering an impressive round between Rycroft's Juri and FlawlessDeku's Jamie, who both showed off some interesting tricks with the characters.

Hungrybox beats Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's best Jigglypuff player in the mirror match at tournament in surprise upset

Lost Tech City 2022 is one of the tournaments occupying the attention of Smash spectators this weekend. Players that are attending this event include Liquid|Hungrybox, Chilly|BassMage, Moist|Maister, SSG|Zomba, BC|Cosmos, PG|Esam, PG|Marss, and around 400 others specifically for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

While Hungrybox is typically renowned mostly for his successes as the best Jigglypuff user in Super Smash Bros. Melee, he still competes at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with the same character. However, BassMage is actually known for being the best Jigglypuff player in the world when it comes to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. During Lost Tech City 2022, these two ended up running into one another during their respective bracket runs.

Luke stuns commentators as he breaks Juri's Critical Art at Street Fighter 5 match but slowing things down reveals what happened

Although the latest balance patch for Street Fighter 5 (very likely the final balance patch) did make it a point to nerf Luke, it's still generally accepted that Luke is a top tier contender in Street Fighter 5. Some might even argue that the Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition iteration of Luke "breaks the game."

Needless to say, this thought was jokingly echoed by RZR|Xian on Twitter while highlighting a commentated match between two Gold ranked players. While this could appear to be an argument to suggest that Luke is able to break the game at will, there's more going on here than meets the eye.

Mario brought his Super Smash Bros. skills with him on his return to World 1-1 in an awesome sprite-based animation

Mario certainly has come a long way since saving Pauline from Donkey Kong in "Donkey Kong," and Princess Toadstool (now Princess Peach) from King Koopa (now Bowser) in "Super Mario Bros." Since then, he's even become a mainstay in many of Nintendo's spinoff series such as the Super Smash Bros. series.

It wouldn't be too farfetched to think that Mario has acquired a ton of experience over his career as a video game icon as a result. What would happen if he utilized some of that experience in a journey back to World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros.?

Who is actually the MOST Bruce Lee of all fighting game Bruce Lee homages?

Is it even a fighting game if it doesn't have a Bruce Lee character in it? While there are plenty of recurring homages to famous martial artists in our favorite genre, far and away the most popular has to be the iconic 70's action star: Bruce Lee.

The founder of Jeet Kune Do is in seemingly everything from Street Fighter to Tekken, and in a recent video The4thSnake has ranked some 15 Bruce Lee homages in terms of just how many references they include and get right, and the overall winner is probably not one you'd expect.
