Choreographer perfectly imitates Lei Wulong's exaggerated motions from Tekken 3 and Tekken 7

Some time ago, we saw some amazing talent from Vladislav Litvinenko when he uploaded a clip that had him choreographing as Eddy Gordo in Tekken 7. This was by no means an easy feat considering how often Eddy Gordo performs flips and other acrobatic movements during gameplay.

Litvinenko is back with another perfect choreograph of a character from the Tekken series. This time, Litvinenko has managed to mimic Lei Wulong's attacks from Tekken 3 and Tekken 7.

Top 10 most laggy characters when you play Street Fighter 5 online

When you're playing fighting games online, at least with where technology is at right now, there's just no way around the occasional interruption from lag. It's hard to predict exactly when things will slow down or roll back, and that ushers the flow of gameplay in a specific direction.

Players who rely more heavily on reactions are hindered in this atmosphere, and characters who have lots of attacks that place the onus on the defender to stop them are naturally buffed. Catalyst has listed his top 10 characters who benefit from laggy play in Street Fighter 5, and discussed it up and down on this week's podcast.

Arc System Works is already in the verification process for adding crossplay to Guilty Gear Strive

Now that essentially all new fighting games will be using rollback netcode from now on, the next logical step in evolution would be to implement cross-platform play between system to link all players together, but the feature is still only slowly gaining steam.

Arc System Works have spoken in the past on wanting to make PlayStation to PC crossplay a reality for Guilty Gear Strive, and they may be a bit farther ahead on that endeavor than we probably expected.

Combo video demonstrates how to perform solo touch of deaths for all 43 characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Since Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 3v3 fighting game, the life expectancy of a single character can be extremely low under the right conditions. Even at full health, a character can go down to a single combo with proper execution.

Apparently every character in Dragon Ball FighterZ is capable of performing a solo touch of death (10,000 points of damage). Not too long ago, Eva69 uploaded a video that showcases a solo ToD combo for all 43 characters in the game.

Masahiro Sakurai iterates for the sixth time that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's DLC will end but the excessive messaging feels necessary

With Min Min, Steve, Sephiroth, Pyra & Mythra and Kazuya Mishima now playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, only one more mysterious challenger remains for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Since Min Min's release, Masahiro Sakurai has been adamant that the implementation of this final character will not only be the end for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, but it will also conclude DLC — including additional fighters — for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In Famitsu Column 632, Masahiro Sakurai's section mostly focused on the subject of Kazuya Mishima in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Towards the end of the Famitsu Column, Sakurai once again reiterated that DLC will be ending after this next character. A translated synopsis of what has been written by Sakurai has been provided by Kody Nokolo of Source Gaming.

Street Fighter and Fatal Fury's creator discusses the origins of fighting games and how Dimps almost went bankrupt

It's pretty wild to think that one person could have such a massive hand in shaping pretty much all fighting games we know today, but that's pretty much exactly what Takashi Nishiyama did.

One of the original creators of both Street Fighter and Fatal Fury recently sat down with former Street Fighter Producer Yoshiki Okamoto to discuss their origins at Capcom, the early creation process of the first fighting games, the founding of Dimps, almost losing the company to a Gundam game and more interesting tales from the game development world.

See how close Japan's best Sonic got to 10,000,000 GSP in Elite Smash and his hilarious reaction in this clip

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Global Smash Power — or "GSP" for short — is rather strange as far as fighting game online ranking systems go. By looking at the GSP of the online players with the highest win rates, you can actually get an idea of how many players have logged into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Quickplay or Elite Smash mode.

If you have 9,000,000 GSP, then that means you "outrank" 8,999,999 other players. For the longest time, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's GSP system has been stuck in the millionth place despite the Switch title's reported 22.85 million sales. It seems like it's just about time for us to add another digit to that maximum possible GSP value.
