Today's video sees me playing some Street Fighter 6, but with a stipulation or two. First off, I'm using Jamie, a character I'm widely unfamiliar with (I used him during the beta, but haven't touched him since) and I'm restricted to only being able to finish rounds if I've reached his four drink final form.

Can you figure out what this Street Fighter 6 tier list is about that has Zangief at the top from iDom?

In this day and age, you can have a tier list for pretty much anything, but it's hard to difficult to think of one where Zangief would ever be at the top when it comes to the context of Street Fighter 6.

Is Street Fighter 6 already more balanced than the final versions of SF4 and SF5? EventHubs debates

We know better than to expect a new Street Fighter game to be balanced, but could it be that Capcom finally figured out the formula to level up in major ways? We pit Street Fighter 6 as it stands in its 3 month infancy against the likes of Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 5 Champion Edition to debate whether this is the most balanced SF entry to date.

While I'm already convinced that SF6 is more balanced than any and all of its predecessors, Catalyst and MajinTenshinhan aren't quite ready to agree wholesale, and thus we dig in and explore with some debate filled discussion.

This Street Fighter 6 mod that transforms Kimberly into Mortal Kombat's Jade has no business being THIS good

I can't believe I'm saying this, but one of Rashid's traditionally frustrating moves actually needs a buff in Street Fighter 6

Those of us who survived him in the Street Fighter 5 days had a good bit of trepidation as Rashid joined the roster of Street Fighter 6 as the game's first DLC character, and though he did have a game-breaking bug upon release, he was actually otherwise refreshingly balanced.

The turbulent and windy fighter proved to retain his high flying and fun abilities, but this time developers were sure to omit the obvious and widely unfair advantages he had in his previous design. That said, it seems perhaps that they erred a little too far on the side of caution, and gave him a maneuver that very clearly doesn't do its job properly.

Mike Ross won't play Honda, so Xian makes him fight the best E. Honda in Street Fighter 6

For those who may not know, Mike Ross became a beloved public figure in the fighting game community in no small part for two major reasons: his extremely charismatic personality and his extremely charismatic E. Honda play during the heights of Street Fighter 4.

Long time fans, including his Versus Vortex partner, 2013 Evo champ Xian, have been hoping to see Mike return to Honda here in Street Fighter 6, but he's thus far been using Lily as his main. Since he can't get Mike to play Honda, Xian decided in the latest episode of VV to pit him against his former main, and brings on whom he deems the top E. Honda player: Careka.
