BlazBlue community rallies together with #CombosForRollback campaign to get their games better online play while showing off stylish execution

The current landscape of the fighting game community that's made offline events almost impossible for the last year has forced players to rely on online play more than ever before, but what if your favorite game doesn't have good netcode?

BlazBlue's community recently decided to take matters into their own hands and banded together to start the #CombosForRollback and #BBCFRollback campaigns on social media in attempts to gain the attention of Arc System Works and the wider FGC while showcasing some sick combos along the way.

Momochi hilariously stream snipes final 11-game win streak attempt of 24-hour Eleven punishment stream with his own Eleven

Yesterday, we reported on RB|Bonchan, BST|Fuudo and HG|Moke's attempt at a 24-hour punishment stream in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition at which point they had already completed one of their three needed 11-game win streaks with Eleven, but perhaps the best part of the event came during their final run.

Momochi successfully managed to crash the party by stream sniping his rivals after they reached 10 wins and were about to go home with his own Eleven.

Grammy-winning beat maker creates a catchy theme based on Dan's corner infinite in Street Fighter 5

It can be said that the timing of combos in fighting games have a real rhythm behind their execution. Those with backgrounds in music could feel right at home when it comes to the execution of strict and complex combos.

Even Dan's corner infinite in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition has a bit of a rhythm to it. While it might appear to be simple at first glance, the combo is actually fairly difficult to perform consistently thanks to the subtle stutter stepping that's necessary to keep Dan within range. As such, Knxwledge has recently uploaded a clip on Twitter that plays a musical track based on the timing of the combo.

Could an Akira Kazama tease be waiting for us during the upcoming Spring Update stream for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition?

New information about Rose and Oro in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition will be unveiled during the upcoming Spring Update stream that will debut on April 6. It's very likely that we'll get the release date for Rose during the presentation.

Last time towards the end of the Winter Update stream, we were provided with a sneak peek at Oro and his iconic Tengu Stone (which is very likely one of his V-Triggers). Could Capcom be preparing a similar sneak peek at Akira Kazama, the character that should be releasing after Oro?

What characters can consistently stop Sheeva's infamous Dragon Drop in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate?

Sheeva in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate might just be one of the most hated characters in modern fighting game history. I must admit that I too am never exactly thrilled with being the opponent of Sheeva players.

The reason for the disdain that's been growing for Sheeva is because of her unblockable Dragon Drop special. As pointed out by TrueUnderDawgGaming, even professional competitors are having difficulties when it comes to dealing with the Queen of the Shokan. He recently released a video that has him attempting to find characters that can consistently deal with the dreaded Dragon Drop special.

Rumor: Nintendo website possibly references the existence of Challenger Pack 12 after the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

With Pyra & Mythra now available as part of the Challenger Pack 9, there are now only two characters of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 that have yet to be revealed and released. As of right now, it is unknown if there will be a Fighters Pass Vol. 3 or any other additional content for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate following the release of these last two fighters. Based on what Masahiro Sakurai has said of the subject in the past, it doesn't seem very likely at first glance.

However, fans have recently discovered something interesting on the Australian Nintendo website that suggests the existence of some sort of content that is coming after Challenger Pack 11, the final DLC package for Fighters Pass Vol. 2. PapaGenos has recently released a video that covers the details behind this rumor, which are based on the discovery made by RiuBert in a Reddit thread.

Katsuhiro Harada says eSports is only a 'buzzword' while the Father of PlayStation Ken Kutaragi claims online events will soon be better than offline

eSports is still something of a divisive term within the fighting game community with some seeing it as a departure from the "grassroots" base we grew up through and others as an opportunity to grow the scene larger than ever before. It's hard to deny where the genre is trending towards though.

Longtime Tekken Director Katsuhiro Harada, who also happens to be the eSports manager for Bandai Namco, claims in his newest episode of Harada's Bar that the phrase is still just a "buzzword" and that Japan is lagging behind in their efforts compared to other countries.

Virtua Fighter fans are still left wondering what exactly the eSports project announcement for the dormant fighting game franchise is going to end up being, but we seemingly have our first glimpse at what Sega has up their sleeves.

Pro Street Fighter 5 players are attempting a crazy challenge to get 11-game win streaks with Eleven 3 times in 24-hour punishment stream

Eleven provides players a truly challenging experience as the pure random select character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, but what's going on right now might be described as something even tougher than just a challenge.

Pro players RB|Bonchan, BST|Fuudo and HG|Moke are currently taking part in a 24-hour "punishment stream" where they can only go home if they manage to reach 11-game win streaks in ranked online with Eleven three different times, but they're finding out they may have bitten off more than they can chew in terms of difficulty.

Give Cre.O.N a few pencils and this is the kind of top tier fighting game art you'll get

We're showcasing some artwork from an artist who goes by the handle Cre.O.N and has an absolutely jaw dropping collection of works featuring the ladies of our favorite fighting games.

While a ton of modern art like this is done with virtual pens and pencils, there's a certain charm that comes with the more traditional, hand-drawn route that you just don't get otherwise.

From balancing turtles to multiple Critical Arts, here's what we might see from Oro in Street Fighter 5

Street Fighter 5 fans are excitedly looking forward to next Tuesday's Spring Update stream during which Capcom has promised new information on Season 5, Rose, Oro, and more. While the Italian fortune teller is surely the main focus since she's due to release next, we thought a speculative look at what we'll likely be seeing for Oro is in order.

It's been a long time since we've seen the 140 year old Japanese hermit, and we've really only his Street Fighter 3 appearances to judge his potential fighting style by. That said, Oro's history paired with SF5's development around him can surely give us some insight on what's coming down the pike.

NetherRealm Studios might be setting up for a new Mortal Kombat 11 reveal this month

We've been waiting decades for a new live action Mortal Kombat film, and so it was rough to hear the news a few days back that the one slated for an April 16 release was pushed back a week to April 23, but a keen observation from unCAGEDgamez has us speculating that the delay may be well worth the wait.

The given reason for holding the film back makes enough sense: Warner Bros. doesn't want it to have to compete as much with their recently released Godzilla vs. Kong. However, April 23 happens to be the two year anniversary of Mortal Kombat 11's release, and it's been quite some time since we last got or heard about any new DLC for the game.

Super Smash Bros. Melee will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year and continues to be an anomalous case of prolonged success as it boasts a still-active competitive base as well as a fan-created means of playing online.

We received yet another reminder that Melee is alive and well today as the Golden Guardians eSports team announced their partnership with three new players: Kris "Toph" Aldenderfer, Edgard "n0ne" L. Sheleby, and one of Melee's five "gods:" Kevin "PPMD" Nanney.

This is hands down the greatest use of V-Shift in Street Fighter 5 we've seen yet

The fighting game community continues to explore the impacts of Street Fighter 5's new game mechanic, V-Shift. This evasive maneuver requires careful thought to pull off, but successful dodges come with big rewards that can help turn the tide of battle.

While we collectively still try to find our V-Shift footing, impressive implementations of this mechanic are starting to surface, and a clip shared by i_amDaniA on Twitter showcases what is hands down the best use of V-Shift in Street Fighter 5 we've seen yet.

Nairoby 'Nairo' Quezada announces his return to streaming Super Smash Bros. content starting next week

Nairoby 'Nairo' Quezada has released his second video since being ostracized from the Super Smash Bros. scene last July, and has announced that he'll be returning to streaming next week... just not on Twitch.

The premier platform for live streams still has Quezada on their blacklist thanks to allegations of sexual misconduct, but he and many in the Super Smash Bros. community have been imploring Twitch to reconsider. Since they've yet to do so, Nairo is planning to take his stream to YouTube.
