K-Brad vs. Wolfkrone saga, F-Champ vs. KBR, Woshige's early celebration, and so much more... remember these salty and hilarious moments from the FGC?

We haven't had much in-person tournament action over the last two years thanks to Covid-19, but as the fighting game community prepares to ease back into traditional events, we feel a look back over some of the saltiest and funniest tournament moments is in order.

Content creator Crowbcat recently put together a hilarious montage of such moments from roughly over the last six years. We remember entertaining bouts such as that between Wolfkrone and K-Brad, the villainous Filipino Champ taking on Kane Blue River, Woshige's epic Evo stand up, and plenty more.

Celebrate Halloween by watching Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and more do crazy combos in this fan-made Horror fighting game

Have you ever had something in your life that you've seen a bunch, never got the chance to try, but always thought, "I really need to try this at some point because I know I'd love it"? That is my relationship with Terrordrome – Rise of the Boogeymen, a fan-made Horror-themed fighting game that pits some of film's most iconic spooky figures against each other in combat.

It just so happens that some truly killer Terrordrome combos popped up on Twitter here for me yesterday, and as I — and a lot of others around the world — are currently in a Halloween state of mind, these quick clips just hit differently and at the perfect time. Join me in watching Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger, Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface, and more hack and slash their opponents in the most stylish way possible.

Here's what Masahiro Sakurai aims to do once Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's content support has concluded

The time that we've been dreading is fast approaching. Support for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to a close very soon with the game's final DLC character, Kingdom Hearts' own Sora, being released on October 18.

These last three years or so have certainly been a wild ride, but it's about that time for the hard-working series creator, Masahiro Sakurai, and his crew, to close up shop and get some much deserved rest. In his latest Famitsu column (with translation work provided by PushDustIn, KodyNOKOLO, and brando_themando), we learn more about the DLC development process, as well as what Sakurai is planning on doing with his time once he's all done with Smash Ultimate.

Banjo & Kazooie, Nigel Thornfieri, and actual voices in-game — here are some excellent Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl PC mods

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is definitely getting a lot of attention in the fighting game community right now for its gameplay, but the general consensus definitely seems to be that the new Smash Bros.-style platform fighter is lacking polish.

When a game has some glaring omissions, PC fans are quick to add things in, and there are already several mods going around that introduce interesting and much wanted facets such as voice acting, alternate costumes, and more. IGN has put together a video showcase featuring 11 of the best mods out there right now, and yes, Nigel Thornfieri is EXACTLY what you think it is.

One Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl character is banned from Super Smash Con this weekend, here's why

As is usually the case with newly-released fighting titles, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl isn't exactly the most balance of games. This doesn't mean NASB hasn't proven to be tons of fun for those willing to put up with a little infancy jank, but there's certainly a lot of balance work that'll need to be done before the game can be taken fully seriously by tournament goers.

Developers have already rolled out a patch to in an attempt to attend to some of the most egregious issues, (though these changes have yet to hit the Nintendo Switch version of the game) but that isn't stopping the organizers behind Super Smash Con from banning one character from their Fall Fest event this weekend.

Here's what Street Fighter 5's V-Shift looks like in the hands of a master

When Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition was updated back in February with its newest mechanic, V-Shift, players were both excited and skeptical that the fresh defensive maneuver would have a major impact on the game. Though SF5's pace seems to have slowed substantially from the offense-fest it has been in the past, not everyone has been sold on the effectiveness of V-Shift.

We've seen more than a few sentiments saying that the mechanic is rarely useful, and that it hasn't had the impact developers had hoped for. That said, BST|Fuudo, one of the strongest players on the planet, recently showed off some immaculate V-Shifting during Street Fighter League, and did so in a situation most all of us are all too familiar with.

Steve Harvey gets meme'd into IPs like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Dragon Ball Z as internet loses it over his new wardrobe

Famous mainly for his mustache, (but also for being a renowned television and radio presenter, actor, author, businessman, and former standup comedian) Steve Harvey has added yet another reason for us to love him as he's recently been posting images of himself rather wild (though still stylish) outfits.

The 64 year old television personality posted an outfit of the day on Thursday, which included a Berluti jacket, leather pants, black turtleneck sweater, and lace-up Bottega Veneta boots. The internet was quick to take this ripe meme fodder and turn it into entertainment gold, and we have some fighting game community favorites.

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon shares how Scorpion's iconic 'GET OVER HERE' line was created

Mortal Kombat series co-creator Ed Boon has started sharing more behind-the-scenes looks and history about the franchise in celebration of its 30 year anniversary. The legendary developer started out with footage of Scorpion's classic spear move being thought up and recorded, showing the process of the developers coming up with the idea and the actor performing what was being instructed.

Piggybacking off of this, Boon has gone into more detail about the line that is equally as iconic as the move itself: "GET OVER HERE!" In a series of tweets from Ed, we learn more about his voice acting contributions to the Mortal Kombat series, a world record set by the quick line of dialogue, and even see Boon perform the line on the Conan O'Brien show.

Spamming Reptar's fire breath special looks pretty damn strong in this Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl clip

Reptar is the Rugrats universe's version of Godzilla. He's a towering terror that causes destruction with every step, and he's totally awesome.

However, the Spongebob player in this Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl clip probably wasn't thinking the ferocious dinosaur was all that awesome while getting spammed by Reptar's fire breath special move. Watch as the scaly green monster uses the same special over and over again to put Spongebob in a terrible KO situation that certainly makes the move look incredibly powerful.
