Here's how Xbox's Phil Spencer reacted to Minecraft Steve's NSFW victory animation in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

When Steve from Minecraft joined Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last week, he made quite the stir. Not only were fans feeling like he was a very strong character right out of the gate, but his victory screen animation turned a lot of heads due to the unfortunate placement of the meat that he holds in his hand after winning the match.

The unintentionally NSFW pose quickly got people talking, and even Head of Xbox Phil Spencer chimed in on the matter. His reaction was shared by Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo, coming from a recent interview Totilo conducted with Spencer.

Here are three of the most stylish and jaw-dropping Beerus combos you've never seen in Dragon Ball FighterZ

When you're not the greatest character amid a roster filled with plenty of heavy hitters constantly distracting audiences with their frustratingly powerful fireworks, it can be a real climb to get people to take you seriously again... even if you're a god of destruction.

Enter Beerus in Dragon Ball FighterZ, (yes, he's still in the game) who has garnered new faith from EG|SonicFox thanks to a handful of buffs in Season 3.

The Phantom of the Opera isn't the most popular Universal Monster but he would make a great fighting game character

Dracula, the Wolf Man, Frankenstein's monster, the Mummy, and other popular Horror movie tropes have found their way into fighting games over the years in one way, shape, or form. They're strong choices due to their high recognition, and if you're not going straight for the most famous slashers like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, or Leatherface, a good option for a fighting game is to create a new character based on a Universal classic monster.

Making my way back through the Universal Monster films in time for Halloween brought me to a trope I don't think I've ever seen represented in a fighting game. Erik, the Phantom of the Opera, is a trickster, a fighter, a maniac, and has supernatural powers at his disposal, and though he typically isn't the most popular of the Universal bunch, I think he would make a great fighting game character if he were the basis for a fighting game combatant.

Mortal Kombat 11 fans got their first look at an extra buff armful of Rambo's attacks today thanks to the incoming DLC character's gameplay trailer, and while there's plenty to appreciate on the surface level with beautifully animated attacks and gruesome kill moves, we'd be remiss if we didn't keep a keen eye out for clever references to the source material.

NetherRealm Studios has become increasingly liberal with such references with their DLC guests, and while just over 30 seconds into today's showcase we got a direct callback to the police station scene from First Blood. Minor spoilers ahead for First Blood.
