This might be the best variation in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate and for good reason

With the massive change in rules Mortal Kombat 11 underwent just a few months back with the Kombat Pack 3 update, players can now freely mix and match character specials to make even deadlier versions of the game's kombatants.

True Under Dawg Gaming feels he may have found the single best variation in MK11 and, despite a ton of recent ruckus about Sheeva, it features Jacqui Briggs.

ESAM shares his Min Min matchup chart, and we can see why she's becoming one of the most hated characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In a game with 80 characters on its roster, one that loses only to 10 others is an absolute beast. According to PG|ESAM, that's Min-Min's current status in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The community figure has recently released a matchup chart for the ARMS guest, and if he's correct in his analysis here, Min Min is an uphill battle for the vast majority of Ultimate's characters.

Stunning sequence sees Ryu player use two different parries to pull the rug out from under veteran Street Fighter competitor

We're kind of used to seeing Ryu lose in Street Fighter 5 given that the franchise poster boy's abilities in this game just haven't been up to snuff since he was nerfed in Season 2, but our highlight here is rare footage of the shoe-less wanderer having the exact tools for the job – both of them parries.

While streaming recently, Street Fighter veteran Arturo Sanchez found himself facing a Ryu whom he whittled down to having virtually no life in a third and final round. Ryu has traditionally had a hard time against Dhalsim's long limbs, and given that it was Sanchez behind the controls with full Critical Art meter and a full screen of real estate between the two characters, a loss was all but imminent.

Super Baby 2's raid boss battle is a blast with your bros but don't let him steal your friends and make them evil

Most players probably overlook the special raid boss battle events added to Dragon Ball FighterZ every time a new DLC character is released for the fighting game, but they never fail to provide a unique co-op experience that's a blast to take on with friends.

The fighting game content creator group of DotoDoya, Rhymestyle and Seerax recently released new videos in their "three idiots" series where they decided to try and take down the evil Super Baby 2, who has the power to turn friend into foe — though their worst enemies are normally themselves, and it's hilarious.

Is NetherRealm Studios being overly sensitive? Street Fighter 6 may not appear as soon as we'd hoped

Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm Studios find themselves getting a little extra heat right now following their decision to suddenly disqualify a participant in their online Pro Kompetition for using the custom variation name to express playful distaste in the current balance of the game.

Titaniumtigerzz and his Sheeva made it into the top eight of the weekend's Pro Kompetition tournament, but was removed from the event mid match for the variation name "WhyDidNRSdoThis." We get into the particulars of this situation and try to draw some lines in terms of if and where NRS is right to police their online events in this way, and whether or not they're being overly sensitive to criticism.

Super Baby 2 is the newest character to join Dragon Ball FighterZ's 42-character roster — soon to be 43 once Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is added.

Ryu competitor recently won Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition tournament while appearing to be impossible to jump in on with his anti-airs

Though Ryu was widely considered to be a top tier in Street Fighter 5 Season 1, the character has really struggled Season 2 onward. Even with numerous buffs throughout the seasons, Ryu generally resides in the bottom 10 portion of most players' tier lists these days.

Of course, this didn't appear to stop Strangehail8, an Ultimate Grand Master Ryu user online, from recently taking a tournament The Online Local last week. To commemorate his gameplay, HiFight released a Just Frame Breakdown that analyzes the little details of Strangehail8's gameplay with Ryu.

These are the 5 character classes revealed in Dungeon Fighter Duel's announcement trailer and here's what they can do

Arc System Works gave the fighting game community a late Christmas present that they never would have guessed with the surprise announcement of DNF Duel (likely to be called Dungeon Fighter Duel in the West) though the developers have pretty much gone silent since.

One of the more interesting prospects of this Dungeon Fighter Online spin-off is that it will feature playable classes instead of traditionally named characters though that doesn't mean they'll be devoid of personality and flair.

The Dead or Alive creator recently revealed he started up a new studio named Itagaki Games which already has a project in the works.
