This man turned a pumpkin into a working arcade stick, plays Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

A very creative streamer who goes by the handle of G-P has successfully brought to fruition one of the most creative arcade fight sticks we've seen yet.

G-P, who has been known to create such devices out of peculiar objects, recently promised his viewers that if he were to gain enough followers on his Twitch channel he'd spend a session attempting to create and play on a controller made out of a hollowed out pumpkin. The goal was met, and he stayed true to his word.

Three ways to potentially fix Super Dashes in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Super Dashes remain Dragon Ball FighterZ's most divisive mechanic three years in, and even Bandai Namco's recent poll on the matter showed that most of the 33,000 people that voted do not like them as they are now.

Cleary, the advice of get good and 2H them on reaction isn't exactly holding up — especially at a time when the vast majority of the matches are being played online — but what routes could Bandai Namco and Arc System Works try in the future to help fix some of the frustrations Super Dashes can bring?

Fan-made Tekken X Darkstalkers art is charmingly perfect

It's no major revelation to say that there's plenty of crossover when it comes to character design in fighting games, but to see the similarities between the roster members of Capcom's Darkstalkers and Bandai Namco's Tekken highlighted so vividly has us delightedly chuckling over and over as we appreciate the art of Michael "Michafrar" Azzi.

This Belgian artist has created a Tekken X Darkstalkers series that we simply cannot get enough of as he pairs together similar fighters from each franchise based primarily on personality and identity traits. King and Felicia explain how they perform their respective rolling and pouncing techniques, demon hunters Donovan and Zafina strike poses together, and Unknown and John Talbain appreciate what life is like having been possessed by a wolf.

Seth has emerged as a monster of a character right now in Street Fighter 5 and we explore why, plus discuss SF4 vs. SF5 in 2020

Street Fighter 5's latest character, Seth, has been growing in popularity at an undeniable rate as we see him pop up more and more frequently in tournaments as well as on CFN, which means we're taking a closer look here on the podcast.

That, however, might not be the case with Seth.

Piccolo's Homing Energy Blast and Master Roshi's Martial Spirit are among the top 10 best assists in Dragon Ball FighterZ according to Jmcrofts

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting game where team building at the character selection screen is critical towards achieving optimal play. One can argue that the assist or support characters are even more important than the "point" characters.

A team in Dragon Ball FighterZ is more likely to work if one or more of the fighters have access to a strong assist. As such, it's vital to understand which assists are the best in the game.

Capcom's Darkstalkers franchise is one of the few horror-themed fighting games around though over the past decade it's been relegated to crossover and cameo appearances instead of any new entries into the series.

Street Fighter 5's seen two DLC packs and seven costumes for the iconic Darkstalkers characters make their way to the game over the past few years from Felicia to Morrigan, so with Halloween right around the corner, what better time to look at some of the most obvious choices still left on the table than now.

Mileena's victory pose in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate perfectly captures her visceral side

We got Rain last week and are looking forward to seeing Rambo tomorrow, but the NetherRealm Studios crew knows which of the three new Kombat Pack 2 DLC newcomers is stirring up the most excitement, which is why we're having to wait the longest for an in-depth look at Mileena in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

While a Mileena Kombat Kast is expected in the coming weeks, we did get a very brief look at her victory sequence and pose during last week's Rain showcase. As the official Mortal Kombat Twitter notes, this was a "blink and you'll miss it" moment, but we did indeed get to see the ravenous character show us how she celebrates a win.
