ST Akuma, Marvel's Vergil, Brawl's Meta Knight? Who is the most broken playable character in fighting games? WatchMojo counts down their top 10 here!

Do you remember the first time you played Akuma in Street Fighter 2? How about when Super Smash Bros. Brawl came out and people figured out how to run over everyone with Meta Knight? Remember Scorpion in Injustice before the patch?

There are quite a few fighting game characters that left their mark of extreme frustration on our hearts as we quickly discovered how incredibly overpowered they were.

WatchMojo has created a list of some of these characters, ranking them from 10-1 based on how ridiculous their abilites are. Not every character on this list is from the fighting game genre, but there are certainly a collection of notables from the FGC's neck of the woods.

Now, please be patient as the video may not go into quite as much detail as you'd like in regards to why a character is too strong or which specific iteration of said character is the most overpowered.

Who do you think will make the list? Hit the jump to see if and where your favorite, or most hated, OP characters landed on the count down!

Invisible Orchid causes a petrified firecat to rise from the ground, Valle gets caught in the Gen infinite, and more: Funny and Cool Moments #88

LiangHuBBB returns on the first day of the new year with a brand new installment of the Funny and Cool Moments series.

This episode marks the 88th in the series, and much like the previous 87 videos we have many more interesting clips here to enjoy.

Now, I know what you're thinking... "DreamKing! What the Hell are you talking about in that headline?!" Well, one of the clips in this compilation shows a glitched out Killer Instinct match in which an invisible Orchid battles against another in a mirror match. Every time the vanished fighter goes for an Uppercat, you can see a stiff model of her fire cat rise up from beneath the floor.

I can't really explain it any better than that, so be sure to check out the GIF below to see what I mean.

There are clips from a number of other games featured in this episode, including some interesting Omega Edition glitches, some Capcom vs. SNK 2 goodness, and much more. You can check out Funny and Cool Moments #88 after the jump.

Death Battle! Deadpool squares off against Deathstroke in a battle of gunfire, swordplay, regeneration and chimichangas

Here's another FGC-related Death Battle featuring my personal favorite Marvel character Deadpool and DC's Deathstroke.

Always entertaining, Wiz and Boomstick break down the stats of each of these characters and pit them against each other in a fight to the death.

This episode sees a return to the 3D fighting world and is one of the most entertaining and well-done bouts the program has created thus far.

Both of these combatants are experts in sword fighting, gun play and have that OP regenerative factor. Things are sure to get messy...

Oh, and like anything involving either Deadpool or Boomstick, this is a bit NSFW, so keep that in mind while watching. Without further adieu, hit the jump and check it out!

Level|Up announces Wednesday Night Fight's transition to the online world

Level|Up's Wednesday Night Fights tournament series was one of the longest running and most popular weekly events in the fighting game community. Super Arcade over in Walnut, California became known as the home of WNF (and Level|Up's other weekly event, The Runback), so it came a shock to most when the heads of the competitive gaming establishment and the tournament series -- Alex Valle and Mike Watson, respectively -- decided to part ways last month.

Since the amicable split, Super Arcade's Mike Watson continued to run weekly tournaments, but what was next for Level|Up remained a mystery, until now.

Alex Valle announced this week that Wednesday Night Fights will be making its transition from local to online. What once was a SoCal based event will now transcend the location barriers and become open to competitors all over the country.

Valle and the Level|Up crew intend to run the new, online WNF series in order to help players everywhere prepare for the upcoming year's major events.

Details are scarce at this time, but we can expect more information soon.
