Phenom pulls off a triple shimmy with backdashes then laughs maniacally as he punishes the opponent during Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition match

Pulling off a shimmy in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is a powerful thing. Not only do you open your opponent up for a big punish, but you also send them a message that lets them know that you're in their head.

As such, NVD|Phenom uploaded a clip that really showcased him unraveling his opponent by using backdashes to shimmy his opponent. This happened three times in a row.

The time period of the early-to-mid 2010's remains seen as the golden era of the fighting game renaissance for many Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom players with many titans cementing their legacies or began new legends within those years.

Fighting Game TV has been going back in time to showcase and provide nostalgia for this golden era with the release of 'Secret Tapes' that had previously been either lost or buried, and one of the standouts is a classic first-to-10 exhibition set between the mighty IFC|YipeS and BC|Apologyman in what may be one of their first meetings.

Mortal Kombat's mix of martial arts and fantastical elements made it the perfect breakout candidate for a film adaptation in the '90s, and that appeal doesn't appear to be lost on those in charge of bringing the new movie to life.

IGN recently released a new video featuring the main cast and crew of the film talking about what makes Mortal Kombat special in their eyes alongside footage we haven't gotten to see before that includes perhaps our first good looks at Shao Kahn in the film.

Nairoby 'Nairo' Quezada shares his reaction footage to Sephiroth's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveal trailer

The story of Nairoby "Nairo" Quezada has evolved quite drastically over the past year from that of an exiled Super Smash Bros. legend to that of one with a hopefully brighter future, but that doesn't mean he was always sitting idly by during his time away from the stream.

Smash Ultimate's former number-four ranked player recorded a hype reaction video for Sephiroth's surprise DLC reveal in December 2020, and now he's finally been able to release it with a strong reception coming out of the community.

Newest community Super Smash Bros. Melee tier list consulted 64 top players

PGstats has released the "13th official tier list" for Super Smash Bros. Melee. Although the last 12 official tier lists were traditionally created by special members of Smashboards' Melee Back Room, PGstats has noted the site's dwindling traffic throughout the years as the reason why they've taken up the mantle on this task. As such, the last Super Smash Bros. Melee tier list of this type hasn't been created since 2015.

To create this tier list, Ryobeat and PracticalTAS consulted 63 members of the Melee Panda Global Rankings 2019 and UGS|Armada on their opinions on how characters should be arranged on a Melee tier list. After collecting the data from these 64 players, PracticalTAS crunched some numbers to create these rankings.

King's return to The King of Fighter 15 was pretty much a forgone conclusion given her popularity throughout the series though that doesn't mean fans weren't still thrilled to see her back.

As is tradition within the Street Fighter series, Dan Hibiki is generally looked at as one of the weaker characters in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. Even with access to a corner infinite, Dan is probably, at best, a mid tier in Street Fighter 5.

Achieving victory with Dan against Ultimate Grand Master and Warlord ranked players is a sign of true mastery. SFV Fan has recently uploaded videos that showcase matches where DoingMyJob, Storm Kubo and PoongKo use Dan against highly ranked opponents.
