The WWE crossover event in The King of Fighters All Star is ridiculous in all the right ways

As one of the most peculiar crossovers in recent memory, it's only natural that The King of Fighters All Star, the mobile game centered around SNK's popular fighting game franchise, made headlines earlier this month when it was officially unveiled that their latest event would be a crossover extravaganza together with none other than the WWE — World Wrestling Entertainment.

Although crossovers have been done in the past in the game, we've mostly seen them focus on other fighting games or at least relatively closely tied media but never any real life people until all of a sudden we had Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and John Cena standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami. As someone who regularly plays The King of Fighters All Star, with this crossover period being no exception, I'll attest to this though — the craziest thing of all is that no matter how bizarre it seems at first, it actually works exceptionally well.

New Brutality revealed for Sheeva in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath calls back to an old MK3 Fatality

Ed Boon was up to his usual trolling ways yesterday (we assume he was the one behind it) as the official Mortal Kombat Twitter page posed a poll to fans asking which Sheeva Brutality they'd like to see, but did so with a catch.

Four options were listed in said poll, (Pounding Headache, Skinned, Delightful Torture, and Shake and Quake) but one of them was apparently a faux choice and not one of the incoming character's sudden kill moves. Fans voted for "Skinned" and it turns out it indeed was a very real, very NSFW Brutality.

A recent release from FGC Translated takes us to a familiar place as we watch one of the most celebrated fighting game players of all time, RB|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, practice Street Fighter 5 online.

During a bout with a G player Daigo turns up the offense and starts hammering away, trying to crack his foe's defenses. This goes on for a full 45 seconds as the G player blocks hit after hit, and after 38 strikes and two V-Reversals you can imagine how much white life is built up.

Third Strike player pulls off about 99% of EVO Moment 37 in Grand Finals of tournament, then the saddest thing in the world happens

Even gamers who don't specialize in fighting games will often recognize EVO Moment 37, (a legendary 2004 sequence wherein RB|Daigo Umehara successfully parried the entirety of Justin Wong's Chun-Li Super to avoid chip damage, and then punished with a game-winning combo) and our genre's most famous in-game exchange was almost recreated in a more recent tournament set.

The event was Heaven or Hell 2019, a Brazilian competition held in November of last year. The Third Strike tournament had been whittled down to just two remaining players: Saoparry|Mardico, who used Chun-Li, and PRTCK|JuanGuitar, who used Ken.

This real-life recreation of King's Reverse Arm Slam Chain Grab from Tekken is hilarious and awesome

King, the jaguar-masked wrestler in the Tekken series, is a grappler character who is known for his command throws. One of his defining traits, in fact, are these long, intricate chain grabs that require a set of various inputs to pull off completely and successfully.

One such chain grab is called the Reverse Arm Slam, and with it King performs a series of slams on the opponent before grabbing them by the legs and swinging them around. It looks awesome in-game, but it looks hilarious AND awesome when performed in real life by MacheteHernand1.

If you're not punishing Akuma's EX Dragon Punch like this in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition you really should change that now

Akuma is easily one of Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's strongest characters, which should come to no surprise to anyone. The powerful Shoto has been among the top tiers for pretty much his entire lifespan here in Street Fighter 5, so finding new tools to better combat him is always a plus.

Training mode master Javits recently shared a clip that features a practical and effective way to better punish Akuma when you block one of his EX Dragon Punches. The idea here is that you can punish him earlier, and as a result, inflict more stun, but you'll have to get crafty with your character and setup.
