Who are the top five, the most overrated, and the most underrated characters here in Season 4 of Street Fighter 5?

Plus both Samurai Shodown and Mortal Kombat continue to look ridiculously good while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leads the pack on the road to EVO

Now that we've gotten a few major Capcom Pro Tour events under our belts and have seen a good majority of Street Fighter 5's characters in the hands of top level players, we're beginning to form more of an understanding of which will reign atop the mountain here in 2019.

Both Catalyst and I have spent a good while examining SF5's stronger fighters in an attempt to articulate our own respective top five orderings to share with you in this week's podcast.

We've looked not only at our own results while playing locally or online, but also how many of these characters are performing in tournament, how popular they are across varying levels of player skill, and how well their tools tend to work within the unique atmosphere of Street Fighter 5.

We also explain which particular character we each thing is currently the most overrated by the community, as well as which is most underrated.

Outside of the Street Fighter discussion we take a look at some of the recent happenings in the worlds of Mortal Kombat 11 and the upcoming Samurai Shodown, both of which continue to roll out first showings of new characters, and both of which are looking absolutely amazing thus far.

All that plus Catalyst kicks things off with a special new SF5 assignment to help me get back on track with the game.
