Click Burgundy's fighting game art is truly top tier and makes fighters look as badass as our imagination portrays them

Click Burgundy is an artist that we've featured many times on EventHubs and for good reason. They have a remarkable talent for capturing the essence of a character in their own unique style that stands above the competition.

We've gathered another dozen or so of their recent fighting game-related works that include portraits of our favorite heroes and baddies from Street Fighter plus others from Dragon Ball, Marvel and even Granblue Fantasy.

Daigo doesn't want revenge mechanics in Street Fighter 6, but they're probably here to stay post SF4 and SF5 success; why Rashid makes our blood boil

Despite extremely rocky beginnings Street Fighter 5 has finally made it to a respectable 3.1 million units sold. This marks a passing of a certain benchmark of success, especially when you take into account how much money Capcom has surely made from the game's DLC sales.

Given this success, we'd be surprised to see Capcom make too drastic of changes heading into Street Fighter 6, but CYG|Daigo recently voiced that he is hoping for a very particular type of change that would take us back to before the Street Fighter 4 era. We don't think it's going to happen.

Yoshinori Ono: The Street Fighter Dev team has been making preparations with US and EU offices on exciting new things for Street Fighter 5

There's been a disappointing amount of silence on the part of Capcom in regards to Street Fighter 5's future content. Not too long ago, Yoshinori Ono made a very interesting request to the community that asked everyone to "wait a little longer."

"Next time we meet, let's watch Blanka's Pockets with [a] smile," said Ono. Earlier today, Ono made a new comment that will certainly raise the eyebrows of many Street Fighter 5 fans.

Why is Third Strike so often regarded as the best fighting game ever? Maximilian has some interesting thoughts on the matter

Now with more than 30 years of Street Fighter and countless other fighting games to choose from, the FGC has a very rich selection of titles under its belt. Of the countless games out there, one seems to often stand above the others in the domain of public opinion: 1999's Street Fighter 3: Third Strike.

Why this game? What is it that makes this third iteration of the third Street Fighter that causes so many to hold it in such high regard? Maximilian recently weighed into the discussion with his two cents.

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle finally received its big Version 1.5 update yesterday, May 21, that saw four new characters join the roster plus reworked balance, but apparently that's not all that was added in the title's patch.

There may be potential spoilers for future DLC below.

Sony: PlayStation 4 will be 'the engine of engagement and profitability for the next 3 years'

Sony has not been shy about sharing details on the yet to be released next generation console in the PlayStation series, and came forward in a corporate strategy presentation on Tuesday with even more information.

During the presentation Sony showed off how much more powerful the forthcoming PlayStation 5 will be compared to the current PlayStation 4 Pro. They achieved this by depicting a side by side comparison as both processors loaded up a single image. Where the PS4 Pro took just over eight seconds to do this, the PS5 took just under one.

Don't ever miss a punish on Birdie's EX Bull Head into V-Trigger 2 activation again with this wonderful character punish guide from HiFight

Birdie is new and improved for Season 4 of Street Fighter 5, and his most drastic alteration has to be the way Capcom changed up his V-Trigger 2 (Birdie Time) to make it a more viable tool. They certainly achieved this, and this formerly seldom-seen VT is now taking out unprepared victims left and right.

Birdie Time has proven extremely useful for extending combos and locking down opponents, but one of its clearest weaknesses is how unsafe it leaves Birdie upon activation. Those opposite the gluttonous Street Fighter Alpha character will never want to let an opportunity to punish this move go by, and luckily HiFight has put together a video showing how each character can punish the ever so common blocked EX Bull Head in VT2 Activation. Unfortunately not all characters actually can take advantage of this situation.

What fan favorite characters could potentially be announced for Mortal Kombat at E3 2019?

E3 2019 is just a couple of weeks away at this point. Considering that we currently only have confirmation about Shang Tsung as a DLC fighter, this might be the perfect opportunity to stir up some hype in the NetherRealm community.

Let's take a moment to speculate on who might be announced at E3. No information about supposed "leaks" are being considered. Also, we'll only be focusing on characters that are native to the Mortal Kombat universe rather than guests.

Shin Akuma and Ultimate Rugal face off in a climatic Capcom vs SNK 2 TAS battle

TAS, or "tool-assisted speedrun" videos, are always a treat to view. Despite the name, these type of videos don't necessarily have to be speedruns.

For fighting games, the player is actually in control of both characters in a given match. The appeal of these videos is showing flashy sequences that aren't normally possible as a result of the limitations of human reaction time.

Samurai's Akuma has ascended, watch as he times out Justin Wong TWICE and scores his third OCV in a row at Street Fighter League

There's no question that Rohto|Tokido is the best Akuma in the Street Fighter 5 business, but Miky "XsK_Samurai" Chea is making leaps and bounds in an effort to catch up.

We've seen the NorCal demon-user carry his Street Fighter League teammates on his shoulders as he's brought his group back from the 3-0 brink not once, not twice, but three times in a row for an impressive 9-0 streak that's still running.
