Major nerf to Akuma spotted in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition Garuda crossover costume trailer

Capcom announced a new Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition crossover costume this morning that will change Akuma into Garuda from Fighting EX Layer. While this news in and of itself is already exciting, keen-eyed fans on Twitter also spotted what looks to be a nerf to Akuma — and one that players have wanted for a very long time.

During the Garuda costume trailer, Akuma can be seen performing several attacks and combos to help show off the new digs. One bread and butter combo in the video, though, shows signs that an important change has been made to the Shoto's light kick Tatsumaki Senpukyaku (Hurricane Kick).

Super Baby 2's Golden Oozaru super behaves differently and boasts a lot more power once an ally has been defeated

The Super Baby 2 trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ revealed that Baby will transform into a Golden Oozaru for his level 3 super. Using his mass to his advantage, the Neo Machine Mutant Tuffle will pummel his opponent with gigantic fists while screaming for their death.

However, it appears that there's more to this super than meets the eye. During the Super Baby 2 debut stream, we learned that this level 3 will behave differently with a certain condition fulfilled.

Pressure and stress from playing competitive fighting games probably burns a lot more calories than you think

There's a fun little experiment I like to run immediately after any pair of players finish a high-intensity tournament set (back when we were doing those in person) in which I quickly ask both participants to hold out their hands horizontally to see how shaky they are. The results have been the same just about every time: jitterbugs.

Seriously playing fighting games puts those who engage in the act into strenuous stretches of mental gymnastics, and very likely takes a bigger toll on the body and burns more calories than you'd think... a lot more.

Double bomb combos and nasty setups from Ibuki will melt your eyes after destroying your guard

Ibuki's V-Trigger bombs were one of the most potent mixup options in Street Fighter 5's first two seasons, and we might be seeing more of it here in 2021 if these setups are anything to go by.

Longtime competitive player Pochoclo23 recently released a new V-Trigger 1 showcase for Street Fighters female ninja which includes some reportedly new tech plus some ridiculous double explosion combos that'll drain your life bar just by looking at them.

Here are the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ patch notes for the Super Baby 2 DLC release

When Super Baby 2 releases on January 15 (January 13 for FighterZ Pass 3 owners), Dragon Ball FighterZ will receive a patch. Towards the end of the Super Baby 2 showcase stream, patch notes were shown.

While this upcoming patch is mostly focused on applying some fixes, some characters did receive a few nerfs. Most notably, Master Roshi's Z Assist (Type B) received numerous nerfs as it was widely considered to be one of the best assists in the game.

Does Super Baby 2 have enough juice to be a unique character or will he be just another Vegeta in Dragon Ball FighterZ?

Super Baby 2 will be the next character to grace the cast of Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 3, but there's one question that many players still have regarding the new DLC.

Does Baby have enough going on in his gameplay and personality to provide a unique experience among the cast, or is he too much like the other versions of Vegeta already in DBFZ?

Japanese Donkey Kong player reacts louder with each failed recovery attempt against Min Min in hilarious Super Smash Bros. Ultimate clip

The Donkey Kong vs. Min Min match up tends to be a fairly volatile one in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Either Min Min gets Donkey Kong off the stage once then bullies his linear recovery indefinitely with her Ramram ARM or Donkey Kong takes advantage of Min Min's lackluster recovery by pushing her too close to the blast zone with his cargo throw.

A Japanese player known as SSG|J recently uploaded a video that showcases one match as Donkey Kong against Min Min. Unfortunately for the controller of Donkey Kong in this match up, the first situation occurred rather than the latter.

Ex-Halo composer would love to compose music for Master Chief's entry into Super Smash Bros. but hasn't been approached

It's still crazy to think that Banjo-Kazooie and Steve are playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate considering that both intellectual properties are owned by Microsoft. Somehow, the idea of Halo's Master Chief joining the roster doesn't seem as farfetched as it used to.

Recently, Martin O'Donnell, ex-Halo composer, was interviewed by Kiwi Talkz. "If you were approached [by Nintendo], would you be open to composing a remix if Master Chief ended up in Super Smash Bros.?" asked Kiwi Talkz. The question ended up prompting some laughter from O'Donnell.

Goku was playable in King of Fighters '98 build made for fun along with Ryu and Ken two years before Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000

There's something truly special about crossover fighting games. Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 marked an interesting time for fighting game fans back in the 2000s era.

However, it seems that there once existed a version of Capcom vs. SNK that allowed players to use Street Fighter's Ryu or King of Fighter's Kyo against Dragon Ball Z's Goku. Funnily enough, this crossover actually existed about two years before the original Capcom vs. SNK was released.

Birdie can reach over 600 damage post-stun thanks to a unique V-Skill 2 setup in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Damage in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition tends to be high enough that characters are capable of defeating opponents with two combos under the right circumstances. A big-bodied character like Birdie is certainly no exception as he has his share of high damage interactions.

Recently, HDG|Younghou came up with a unique combo that looks to be particularly strong after securing a stun. Upon seeing this, Javits came up with an alternate version.

Mortal Kombat 11 first-person view mod looks like a VR fighting game and allows Scorpion to hook his opponents up close and personal

Fighting games have generally always been played from a side view of the characters to easily grasp what's going on at all times during a match which makes it quite interesting to see what the action looks like from a different perspective.

A PC modder by the name of Ermaccer recently released a new set of tools for Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate that includes the ability to play the game completely in first-person view or behind the back camera and certainly makes the game look like a different experience.

EVO Moment #37 continues to be the shining pinnacle of amazing fighting game plays between two of the greatest competitors of the genre in BST|Daigo Umehara and PG|Justin Wong, but things could have almost gone differently in an alternate timeline had one thing been altered.

The French Street Fighter 3: Third Strike community recently shared some special tech for Chun-Li that can allow her to escape the parry punish on her Super Art under one specific condition.
