'The design of G is actually so messed up... the embodiment of everything that's wrong with Street Fighter 5' — MDZ Jimmy's review of G

Depending on who you ask, G's viability in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition can range from being a ridiculous top tier or one of the worst characters in the game. Notably, Rohto|Tokido, RB|Gachikun, and Mago at one point listed G as one of the weaker fighters in Season 4. This is similar to the Season 2 Laura situation when Japan thought of her as being bad.

However, this is not an opinion shared by MDZ Jimmy — a Grand Master Ryu player. In fact, MDZ Jimmy has some issues with G's overall design philosophy and makes some compelling arguments about the problems revolving around him.

PlayStation 5 aims to drastically reduce load times and will be backwards compatible with PS4; first details about Sony's next-gen console emerge

Though the Xbox 360 may have been king of the fighting games during the last console generation for Capcom titles at least, Sony's PlayStation 4 took over that mantle in more recent years after obtaining a number of stand out exclusives like Street Fighter 5 and Guilty Gear Xrd.

Here's a look at Kid Goku's Super Saiyan 4 transformation in Dragon Ball FighterZ via new V-Jump magazine scan

Just yesterday, we learned that Dragon Ball FighterZ's next character is set for release next month. Dragon Ball GT's Kid Goku will be added to the game as DLC, and it was revealed that he will come equipped with a Super Saiyan 4 transformation, but not in the way fans had hoped.

Instead of being an install-like form Kid Goku can take on — like Frieza becoming Golden Frieza — Super Saiyan 4 will be tied to Kid Goku's Meteor Attack. The V-Jump magazine scan has seemingly surfaced (thanks to Twitter user ComunidArcsys), and we now get to see what SSJ4 Goku looks like in-game.

Mileena disconfirmed for Mortal Kombat 11? Kitana having access to her sai projectile and teleport drop kick is bad news for fans

There have been a number of rumors indicating that Mileena won't be returning as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 11. Notably, she was one of the characters that met a very gruesome end during the events of Mortal Kombat X's main story mode.

With Kitana's reveal and breakdown, these rumors appear to have been substantiated somewhat. For some reason, Kitana is capable of arming herself with some of Mileena's special moves with the right custom variation choices.
