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.

Daigo believes that Seth's air axe kick is mostly fine but needs a slight nerf in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

It's mostly agreed among top players that Seth is one of the strongest characters in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. One of Seth's best tools is his Annihilate Sword special, which allows him to change his jump arc and land with an aerial axe kick.

Although BST|Daigo Umehara thinks that Seth's Annihilate Sword is mostly fine, he does believe that it does need to be toned down. Back in September 2020, he came up with a couple of ideas to normalize the move's power level.

Kronika and Cyrax, two characters you can't normally play, have some of the coolest combos in all of Mortal Kombat 11

The creators of Mortal Kombat have been putting fully designed but unplayable characters in their franchise since inception as boss figures like MK1's Shang Tsung and Goro boasted impressively powerful tools that, save for gaining access to a hacked or modded version of the game, none of us ever got to utilize.

Though developers have slipped in cheat codes that allow users to take control of non-roster members over the years, we've yet to see anything like that for Mortal Kombat 11's non-player combatants. In the current age of PC modding, however, it's become fairly commonplace for those with the proper skills to call such fighters out from the modes they're usually restricted to and place them in the hands of players. That's exactly what we're seeing for both Cyrax and Kronika in Mortal Kombat 11 thanks to some Twitter uploads from EVO 2019 and Final Kombat 2020 finalist Deoxys.

Masahiro Sakurai once disguised himself as a part-time game shop employee with the intention of better understanding video game consumers

It's no secret that Masahiro Sakurai is extremely dedicated when it comes to perfecting his craft as a game designer. During the development of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Sakurai worked 13 months straight without a day off. The developer would frequently dedicate himself to 40 hour shifts with only four hours of sleep before continuing his workflow. Unfortunately, this lifestyle would ultimately result in Masahiro Sakurai being hospitalized before development on the GameCube game had concluded.

While the game developer hasn't pushed himself to that extent since then, he's still be known to come to work with an IV drip while sick so that he could continue as normal. To better understand game design, Sakurai has explicitly went out of his way to play games that he personally didn't like or games that weren't very popular. However, the Super Smash Bros. director's dedication doesn't just end there.
