V-Skills stop Ryu's Critical Art completely, fireworks and Turn Punch collide, and lots of juggles: Desk releases Street Fighter 5 G combo video

If you haven't tried out Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's latest newcomer, G, you should probably change that immediately. Not only is he one of the game's most unique characters, but the presidential fighter is really fun to play.

We're seeing a lot of tech and combos shared for the fifth Season 3 DLC character, and today we have a full-fledged combo video from combo extraordinaire desk.

In this showcase we see plenty of flashy and impressive sequences. From big juggles using Maximum President (V-Trigger 1) to big damage from Dangerous President (V-Trigger 2), there's plenty to see here and aspiring G players will surely walk away with some new ideas.

With V-Trigger 1, G's V-Skill becomes a large, multi-hit projectile. Desk uses this to set up a trick shot against Ryu's Critical Art, firing two of them to absorb the full onslaught of hits from the massive Hadoken.

We also see various combos and sequences utilizing G's fireworks — the attack that comes from his idle animation. As we recently learned, if G stands still for a little over a minute, he will point upward firing what looks like fireworks, and if they hit the opponent while they're going up they will inflict 500 damage and stun (600 with counter hit).

Desk not only pulls off some cool juggles with this move, but he also puts it up against another crazy powerful move that takes about a full minute to charge — Balrog's turn punch.

Below is a quick clip to get you started. You can catch the full video after the jump.
