Street Fighter 5 stories

Daigo Umehara adapts a new strategy when experiencing a 2 bar connection for the first time during Street Fighter 5 match

Because Japan is a smaller country than the United States, laggy online matches aren't quite as common in Japan. Fiber internet also tends to be very helpful in mitigating lag-filled experiences.

During the Pentagon Cup event, BST|Daigo Umehara had to face off against Chris Wong, a player in Hong Kong using Nash. As one might expect, the great amount of distance caused issues within the game. Umehara noted that he had never experienced a 2 bar connection before during his stream.

7 Resident Evil costumes we're still waiting to see in Street Fighter 5

Street Fighter 5 has dozens of crossover costumes available at this point, but Capcom has so many iconic characters that there's still dozens more who deserve a spot — especially their most popular horror franchise.

With the recent tease of more Resident Evil-related announcements coming and Halloween right around the corner, we figured now is the perfect time to explore the zombie hunters and Biohazard monsters that are still waiting for their chance to fight and who would best portray them.

It's never truly too late to pick up a fighting game. A clip uploaded to Twitter by Chyococo69 really demonstrates this.

According to her, she's been teaching her husband how to perform a fireball with Ryu in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. "It was completely unexpected that the fun of the couple's old age would be a fighting game," said Chyococo69 on Twitter.

Street Fighter 5 could receive some new Resident Evil costumes for Halloween

The worlds of Street Fighter and Resident Evil have technically been clashing now for over 20 years with Jill Valentine's inclusion on the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 roster, and if we're lucky, there could be more crossover potential lurking around the corner.

Capcom recently revealed a 25th anniversary for Resident Evil promotion just in time for Halloween promising a good chunk of announcements, and some new Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition DLC costumes are fairly high on that list for making an appearance.

Shine uses Cody's knife to snipe opponent out of the air and makes an outstanding confirm in this Street Fighter 5 clip

As Street Fighter 5 continues to grow in its fairly old age now, it really feels like players are finding new ways to express themselves with many different characters on the roster. Though one of the earliest complaints about the game was that it was extremely limited on that front, here in 2021 it feels like we're seeing new things from all kinds of characters, and today we have such a thing for Cody courtesy of Shine.

Consciously anti-airing an opponent with Cody's V-Trigger 1 knife throw is impressive enough and not something we see often, but what's even more impressive is being aware of it, loading another knife, then confirming into Cody's multi-strike to close out with Critical Art. Well, that's exactly what Shine did here.

Juri cosplays as Sakura, Ruby Heart strikes a pose, and Menat walks like an Egyptian in Calvin Sims' gorgeous fighting game art

There's a particular balance of toonish mischief and grace when it comes to the fighting game artwork of Calvin Sims, and we feel the gallery we've put together of his drawings showcases both.

Ladies across Street Fighter titles make up the majority of the subjects here, though we also get a beautiful pose from Marvel vs. Capcom 2's Ruby Heart, one from Hsien-ko of Darkstalkers, and a pair of Guilty Gear gals join in on the fun.

Guilty Gear Strive just got a new balance patch, here's footage of some of the biggest changes in action

The brand new Guilty Gear Strive update rolled out earlier this week and brought with it a ton of changes across the entire roster, but seeing patch notes on paper and seeing them play out in game are often two very different things.

We first turn our eyes to a new video upload from Hi-Fight as he's compiled footage of a few crucial changes for each of Strive's 17 characters, and then check out Rooflemonger's more detailed analysis.

Here's what Street Fighter 5's V-Shift looks like in the hands of a master

When Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition was updated back in February with its newest mechanic, V-Shift, players were both excited and skeptical that the fresh defensive maneuver would have a major impact on the game. Though SF5's pace seems to have slowed substantially from the offense-fest it has been in the past, not everyone has been sold on the effectiveness of V-Shift.

We've seen more than a few sentiments saying that the mechanic is rarely useful, and that it hasn't had the impact developers had hoped for. That said, BST|Fuudo, one of the strongest players on the planet, recently showed off some immaculate V-Shifting during Street Fighter League, and did so in a situation most all of us are all too familiar with.

4 nonnegotiable features fans should expect out of the box for next generation fighting games

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S surprisingly released almost a year ago already to ring in the new generation of video games, although fighting games have yet to fully commit to the new hardware.

When the likes of Capcom, Bandai Namco, NetherRealm Studios and others do finally ditch the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, these four features should be considered nonnegotiable inclusions for future fighting games.
