We've gotten a lot of stellar spotlight videos from OlympicGaming lately, but this latest one is extra dear to our hearts, here at EventHubs' editorial staff (or at least me, DreamKing might be fuming with rage).

Five for fighting: Guile's SF2 theme played during NHL game after fight breaks out

In a National Hockey League (NHL) game between the Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars, a fight broke out between Travis Moen and Antoine Roussel.

Hockey is a pretty awesome sport, because instead of guys receiving a suspension for fighting, and potentially being banned from the league — they're simply given a 5 minute penalty, and they can check back into the game.

Fighting is such a common occurrence at NHL games that the guys running the stadium audio often play music when a brawl breaks out, and apparently, the people at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas are fighting game fans, because a ways into this bout, they started playing Guile's theme for Street Fighter 2 over the speakers.

You're not as safe as you think you are: Beating untrue block strings in SSF4 AE v2012

LPN and Pandora House have put together a very quick hitting and informative video for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.

Often times when playing the game, you'll see players throw out attacks which are not true block strings, but go unpunished because competitors lack the knowledge that these moves are not leaving you in blockstun the entire time, and can therefore be interrupted.

The video is a bit under 5 minutes long, but it quickly moves through the cast displaying heads up information on which attacks are unsafe, and showing on screen how to beat them.

The clip is very tightly edited, which makes for a fun and informative watch. Hit the jump to see it.

Necro learns to fly and Dudley defends the belt - These impractical combo videos shows what the Street Fighter 3 system is really capable of

While Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike has been a good old favorite for many a years, its engine can still surprise you when seeing what kind of crazy antics are truly possible in it.

This video also includes footage from the somewhat rarely seen earlier editions of Street Fighter 3, The New Generation and 2nd Impact.

In these videos, you'll find weird bugs which make Necro fly throughout the match, Dudley do some insane kill combos, and a lot of Aegis Reflector abusing. There are also a ton of combos that look like they're from the Street Fighter Alpha series, rather than the Street Fighter 3 series.

Thor has side switching combos to more easily corner his opponents, can also set up Dr. Strange FoF loops and Dr. Doom confirms

Thor is currently most commonly used as a training dummy in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. However, e mc brings us a couple of videos that show he not only has some tricks of his own, but can set things up for some of the better characters in the game.

Not only are there a few different ways to do this, but this little trick can lead into Flames of the Faltine loops for Dr. Strange, or a raw tag into Dr. Doom.

Additionally, e mc sent in another video that shows how to confirm into Dr. Doom after using Thor's Mighty Punish command throw hyper. Overall, there is some great tech here for anyone wanting to play Thor.

Amazing reads, impeccable reactions and impressive combos - SkyAkuma's Gouken demonstrates why he's the master of Ryu and Ken

We've been shown, from time to time, that Gouken can be a true force to be reckoned with, partly when Infiltration used him in certain matchups. But even so, he is a character that gets comparatively little playtime.

More Marvel games delisted, removal of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Online seemingly unrelated to Capcom

While it came as a large shock to many a few weeks ago when Marvel enforced removal of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 from online marketplaces, this is beginning to seem wholly unrelated to the current relationship between Marvel and Capcom by the day.

A few days ago, Deadpool's recent game was removed from online distribution as well, and now a whole slew of games have followed the same trend.

Jago's classic costume leaked and now available with recent update, can only be chosen when one player hovers over Orchid in character select

The latest Killer Instinct update that just went live tonight came with quite a few fixes, and some new content additions. Most notably, the first classic costume, Orchid's, is now officially available for use.

However, it seems that Orchid's new outfit isn't the only classic costume currently available. By what seems to be either a small mistake, or perhaps an intentional hidden Easter egg, Jago's classic costume is now completely usable in Killer Instinct.

This classic costume can only be chosen if one player hovers over Orchid on the character select screen. The other player can then press the down direction while hovering over Jago to select his classic costume. This is the first we've ever seen of Jago's alternate outfit, and in this story, we have screenshots of all six colors, and a video of this classic costume in action.
