Kenny Omega On Fighting Chris Jericho, Showing A New Version Of Himself At Wrestle Kingdom 12, Okada
Xuses is winding up 2017 with a bang, releasing several compilations in the last few days. This one focuses on one simple thing — people getting utterly destroyed.
In this compilation, Xuses pulls out a collection of people facing the humiliation of being double perfected. Featured dishing out this ultimate lesson in humility are top players such as Daigo Umehara, Imstilldadaddy, Problem X, and Poongko. Given the difficulty of pulling off this feat, we only hope as viewers that we are never featured on the receiving end of one of these.
20XX has become the go to hack pack for Super Smash Bros. Melee training, and its most recent update has made it even more effective in leveling up.
Added recently is its ability to record and replay save states, allowing you to practice for various situations in Melee. This is not unlike Street Fighter V‘s recording function, but has a few more extensible options, including infinite loops and state resets, which allow you to reset your exact position to set up various circumstances that you should practice for. It is, however, a little cumbersome to use, which is why SSBM Tutorials created a video chronicling how to use it properly.

With the recent reveals of the Dragon Ball Super trio of Goku Black, Hit and Beerus in Dragon Ball FighterZ, IKevinX has recently released reference videos for the new warriors.
First up is Goku Black, the current form of Present Zamasu, the Supreme Kai Apprentice of Universe 10, who used the Super Dragon Balls to switch bodies with Goku, before beginning the “Zero Mortals Plan” with Future Zamasu. Battling exclusively in his Super Saiyan Rose form, Black’s references are pulled solely from the anime and his Xenoverse 2 incarnation, forgoing his Super manga appearance entirely.
Naturally drawing on all of his anime battles, we see Black’s barbaric fighting style on full display, with his Launcher and Medium Auto Combos coming straight from XV2, while his Instant Transmission, God Slicer and Black Kamehameha, as well as the Fierce God Kick (which IKevinX affectionately dubs the “Savage Kick,”) are all accounted for with the usual stunning accuracy. Not to be left out, Black also has some tandem offense with Future Zamasu, such as the Binding Black Kamehameha, where he forced Goku and Future Trunks to eat the charged beam by grabbing them from behind, surviving the impact due to his immortal body. The God Slicer Dance, Holy Light Grenade and even his ultimate attack, the reality-destroying Work Of The Gods, is seen as his Level 3.
In contrast, both Hit and Beerus utilize references from the manga, with the Universe 6 assassin’s battles with Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Vegeta and Frost, as well as his recent encounter with the Pride Troopers during the on-going Tournament Of Power being drawn upon for inspiration. His Time-Skip abilities, such as Jump Spike, Tremor Pulse, Flash Skewer, Back Breaker, and Time Freeze have manifested as Counters, with his Phantom Fist serving as a dodge of sorts. Time Skip/Molotov also serves as his Level 3.
Universe 7’s God of Destruction, Beerus, rounds out this lineup, primarily drawing on his fights with Goku, Vegeta and Buu, in both Dragon Ball Super and Battle Of Gods. Utilizing his Cataclysmic Orbs, Sneeze Blasts, the Palm Energy Infusion Explosion, God of Destruction’s Wrath, the Beerus Ball and — of course– Hakai, the Destroyer has a fittingly powerful move set.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe on January 26th, 2018. A Japanese release will follow on the same platforms February 1st. An open beta test will be held on January 14th-15, with digital pre-orders getting in on the 13th.
As we’re now in the final week of 2017, many people usually take this time to reflect on everything that’s been happening throughout the world in the past year, while also taking a moment to look forward into the new horizons the next one will bring.

Following up from his review for 2016, reslived has returned to sum up another year’s worth of high quality Project M play. With Junebug and Lunchables retiring from the PM scene, much of the action in 2017 centered around the new top three, ThundeRzReign, Sosa and Malachi.
The Project M Championship Circuit returned for 2017, assuring a steady stream of tournaments where players could strut their stuff. A new class of player started to emerge in 2017, with players like Switch, Hyperflame, Fuzz and Flipp threatening the dominance of the top three at several events.
True to his name, ThundeRzReign still reigns supreme, having won two of three events where the top three were in attendance. His Losers’ run at The Bigger Balc stands as the greatest tournament run in Project M history, where the SoCal DK managed to beat Hyperflame, Sosa, Fuzz, Switch and Flipp — to win the entire event. At the final PM major of the year, ThundeRz triumphed over both Sosa and Malachi, even defeating Malachi 3-0 in the final set of Grand Finals.
The PM community is still showing signs of growth — both in terms of its meta and its community — so expect reslived’s 2018 recap to be even better.
