Ryu player pulls off two V-Trigger parries in one combo against veteran Street Fighter competitor

Sometimes lightening strikes twice in the same place, but even rarer still is when Ryu is able to pull of two V-Trigger 2 parries in a single combo.

During a recent streaming session fighting game veteran Arturo Sanchez and his Dhalsim wound up experiencing exactly this in a sequence that'll make your hair stand on end.

Minecraft Steve is exactly the nightmare for Little Mac we expected in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate if this clip is any indicator

It's no secret that Little Mac in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate heavily struggles when he's off the stage. By design, Mac has a rough time fighting and recovering when he's not on the platform due to how strong his offensive capabilities are when he's grounded.

Early footage of Smash Bros. Ultimate's latest DLC character, Steve from Minecraft, showed a character who can create his own platforms anywhere he wants and comfortably exist in the outer areas of the stage so long as he has the resources to do so. We suspected that a character who can camp out of bounds may be a real issue for a character who wants to avoid that space at all costs, and if this clip from MLDeku is any indicator, Steve is exactly the nightmare we expected he'd be for Little Mac.

Should Capcom use a Street Fighter 3 original character as Street Fighter 5's final DLC addition?

Street Fighter 3 brought with it a whopping 16 new characters (including Gill) to the franchise, but only five of these combatants (including Oro when he joins next year) have made it to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's roster.

It's not to say that Capcom absolutely should ensure that the 45th and final Street Fighter 5 addition hail from the third franchise entry, but there are some front runner characters who really could make for exciting bookends to the roster.

Poll results: Who are the least fun Tekken 7 characters to fight against?

Update: Polling has ended and you can now find the final results after the jump.

Earlier: The Tekken 7 community has seen enormous growth over the past couple of years showing us all new ways to play the game like the recent explosion of the Pakistani scene, and with new challenges comes new demons to overcome as well.

Bandai Namco's character pool in their latest version of their flagship 3D fighter is about as wide as it is deep though some of the roster members are a good bit less fun to fight against than the others — especially in more recent times.

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R is getting rollback netcode on Steam

What used to be a non-factor in the fighting game experience has now taken center stage as online play quality and netcode have become some of the most important pieces to the puzzle in recent times.

These days, if a development team reveals that their game does not feature rollback netcode they can all but expect a flurry of angry comments on social media from players, and it seems Arc System Works is taking this to heart and going as far as to add this feature to the Steam version of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R, an eight year old title.

Here's the best Jedi mind trick that's ever been played in a game of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This is such a simple sequence and yet I find myself having the hardest time figuring out where to begin and how to tackle it. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Banjo Kazooie user by the name of Tearbear1992 posted a one minute clip of one of the most simultaneously baffling and understandable Smash sequences we've ever seen.

Though up 3-1 in stocks, Tear is far behind when it comes to both percentage health and positioning as we jump into the action to see he's been knocked away from the edge of the stage by his Ike opponent. Getting back to safety is obviously going to be a tall order, and so he opts instead to remain far away and up in the air by further damaging himself.

One of Rain's most iconic moves returns in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate but you might have missed it in the trailer

NetherRealm Studios pleased ninja fans everywhere with their gameplay reveal of Rain in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate earlier this week. The purple palette swap is far from a simple Scorpion or Sub-Zero alternate here in 2020, boasting an updated look, a new weapon, and some fresh tricks up his sleeves.

A lot of things come to mind when one thinks of Rain in the Mortal Kombat series, but when it comes to iconic moves for the character there aren't many more mainstay than his Super Kick. The big roundhouse special move makes its return here in Mortal Kombat 11, but you might have missed it on your first viewing of the gameplay showcase.

The famous Chun-Li vs. Mai Shiranui stare down has been recreated in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

There's a widely recognizable art piece of Street Fighter's Chun-Li facing off against Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters' Mai Shiranui that fighting game fans have likely come across at least once in their lives. That same classic portrayal of the two fighting females has been recreated in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a created stage.

Now the likes of Mario, Banjo-Kazooie, Min Min, and the rest of the cast can do battle upon a famous Street Fighter and SNK scene.

What actually changed with Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's recent netcode update? Here's what we found so far

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition saw an update this week that paved the way for some new alternate outfits. Much to the surprise of the fighting game community, though, this patch also put into place a handful of netcode improvements, according to Capcom.

The patch notes released make mention of a handful of tweaks that seem to be raising more questions than they are providing answers. Here's what we found after digging deeper into the latest Street Fighter 5 update and testing the online experience ourselves.

Rain's face fully revealed in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate and yes... he's hot

We got our first good look at Rain in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate today as NetherRealm Studios posted his character trailer showing off a handful of the demigod's beautiful maneuvers and weather-related powers, but a follow up joke post from the official Mortal Kombat Twitter gave us even more still.

The Rain trailer hits its climax with one of the newcomer's two Fatalities as we observe him finishing off a foe by manipulating water into deadly weapons. The post features this Fatality edited together with a funny meme from back in 2007 that came from a very enthusiastic surfer's interview with FOX 11. While the joke works really well with Rain's Fatality footage, we also happen to get a full view of the character's unveiled face at the end.

It's early, but crazy offense and brilliant movement options might mean Steve is a little too strong in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This one is a little on the delicate side as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's newest DLC character, Steve from Minecraft, is a little more polarizing than most others have been. It seems that polarization has the potential to grow as early investigations are bringing back some fairly scary results as the block building fighter might be exceptionally strong.

The 16-bit character already moves and fights in fairly unique ways, but one interaction between Liquid's Dabuz and Hungrybox left the latter absolutely speechless (for at least a moment, then he starts loudly cursing). Another highlight shows us Steve's crazy potential for upsmash combos, and yet another still reveals tech that may lead to unparalleled movement options.

What looks like a new delayed wake up animation spotted in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Rain trailer

There's already plenty to be excited about when it comes to Mortal Kombat 11 as we just got our first character trailer for the three "Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate" newcomers, but while Rain looks absolutely amazing in his MK11 debut, our focus was simultaneously pulled in an unexpected direction.

Those of us who recall the trials and tribulations of Street Fighter 4's "vortex chapter" know just how crucial a role defensive options and indicators can be when it comes to okizeme (the crucial situations that occur while a character is standing up from being knocked down) and NetherRealm Studios developers appear to be tweaking things in this department for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

New Nappa freeze bug causes Dragon Ball FighterZ action to come to a screeching halt

While the majority of play right now is fueled by the excitement of exploration and new findings, not all is perfectly well in the world of Dragon Ball FighterZ as it seems there's a new bug developers will want to deal with sooner rather than later.

This new fly in the ointment was highlighted by a player named GodGenis, and sees Nappa become completely frozen in place after using his Giant Storm super attack.

Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry and other Capcom series have big adaptations in the works so why isn't Street Fighter receiving the same recognition?

Capcom owns arguably the most iconic roster of characters and series in the video game industry outside of Nintendo, so it's no surprise the company would want to branch out their properties into new adaptations even more right now.

Monster Hunter is receiving its first feature film, Resident Evil has multiple projects in the works and even Dragon's Dogma got an anime, but there's one top-selling franchise that's been left out in the cold for quite a few years now: Street Fighter.

One of Steve's victory poses looks hilariously NSFW in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Minecraft's Steve has been in the hands of players for about a day and a half at this point, and while the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community is digging up some dirty tricks with the DLC fighter's block building, the character himself is also looking a little dirty.

Shortly after their release, players across the internet began sharing one of Steve, Alex, Zombie or Enderman's victory screen poses that appears to be not quite safe for work upon first viewing.
