Here's footage of the character-freezing bug Capcom just patched out of Street Fighter 5

When Capcom introduced V-Shift into Street Fighter 5, they also updated Necalli's V-Trigger 1 with a timer so that he'd no longer be locked into using his gauge in just one way. This alteration also brought with it a bug that, when triggered, would cause Necalli to freeze up, unable to perform any attacks, turn in either direction, or even perform post round win/loss animations.

Though this issue has been part of the SF5 for over a year, Necalli was somewhat rarely-used and thus it was rarely seen. Capcom was able to attend to it in the game's latest patch, but we have some footage of it in action thanks to Desk's latest upload.

'If I'm dead here then you're a god... What the F---' — Esam reacts accordingly to Steve's combo during Smash Ultimate match

There's really no character that's quite like Minecraft's Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — and that's really saying something considering the size of the roster. While playing against a skilled player that's using this "World Crafter," it's especially important to be careful in the neutral considering this character's damage output.

While playing as the Mii Brawler, PG|Esam learned just how insane Steve's combos can be with the right amount of execution. After getting hit at just 17.6%, it seemed that Esam was at least somewhat confident that he'd survive by the time the combo had ended, but his opponent had a surprise for him.

Having trouble with Poison's long-ranged pokes? This guide details how every character in Street Fighter 5 can punish her on block

The Definitive Update patch (not patch version 202205) changed some of the properties of Poison's whip pokes to be more punishable by way of making the hurtboxes easier to retaliate against when used from improper spacing. Of course, this does require both knowledge and practice to do consistently.

To help with the knowledge part, Shuckle has released a guide that spans over 30 minutes that details how every character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition can punish Poison's crouching heavy punch and Heart Raid.

Here's a visualization of what exactly got nerfed with Luke's medium Sand Blaster projectile in the Street Fighter 5 patch

Late last night, Capcom dropped a patch for Street Fighter 5 seemingly out of nowhere. There weren't too many changes overall, but Luke did appear to receive the most attention in the form of slight nerfs — emphasis on "slight."

One of the changes was focused on Luke's medium Sand Blaster projectile. Capcom noted that this move had his active frames and overall range reduced, but by how much exactly?

TrueUnderDawgGaming's latest tier list rates bosses and sub-bosses that have appeared in the Mortal Kombat games

Counting Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe as the eighth entry, there have been 11 mainline Mortal Kombat titles developed thus far. It's been something of a tradition for every Mortal Kombat to have the player fight against some unplayable boss at the end of every story mode or arcade ladder mode.

Who among these boss characters is the best, though? To answer this, TrueUnderDagGaming released a unique tier list that rates all the bosses we've come across throughout the history of the Mortal Kombat series.

'Mind melting' Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Dark Phoenix was a crazy character

Dark Phoenix is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe, and when it came time to implement her into Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it caused one former Capcom staff member to say she "made my mind melt."

The regular version of Phoenix was a strong character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but building up 5 bars of super meter and getting knocked out would cause Dark Phoenix to rise up in her place.

Professional stuntwoman brings Mileena's attacks out of Mortal Kombat and into the real world

Although many fighting game franchises like Street Fighter, Tekken and Virtua Fighter base their styles on real martial arts, Mortal Kombat takes a much more fantastical approach to battles, but can their flips and spin rips still be performed by actual humans?

Well, professional stuntwoman Sofia Stunts recently put that to the test by recreating a bunch of Mileena's attacks from Mortal Kombat 11, and she even brought a pair of sais along to help her do the tricks authentically.
