Power Instinct Matrimelee / Shin Gouketsuji Ichizoku Toukon Matrimelee - Let's go, onmyouji!

More specifically, the song itself comes from that game but the music video comes from the updated version Shin Gōketsuji Ichizoku: Bonnō Kaihō for the PS2.

This used to be a popular meme back then. I wonder how many of these people who liked the song actually played or even know about the Power Instinct games. Probably not a lot.

"What? Are people no longer allowed to enjoy certain videogame songs just because they didn't play the games?" - Relax, I never said that.

Anyways, the game is filled with weird yet catchy songs like that. Like a sad song about fries, a song about adorable aliens who come to Earth to perform cruel experiments on humans, a song about buying parts for a gaming PC, ect.

"adorable aliens who come to Earth to perform cruel experiments on humans?? That sounds like an oxymoron" - No, not really. Just because you are cute doesn't mean you are harmless. Just ask Kirby.

"But that's a fictional character!" - Fine. Have a real example: hippopotamus. Hippos may look cute (specially when they are babies), but hippos are also NASTY animals and highly territorial. They are the animals with the highest human body count in all of Africa. Hippos kill more people than lions or crocodiles or leopards.

Moving on from Power Instinct, a user by the name of eva69 uploaded a video shocase for DBFZ' new patch (ver.01.28)

Antonov has been confirmed for The King Of Fighters XV and he's coming with a redesign. Antonov, Ramón, and King of Dinosaurs are the menbers of Team G.A.W (Galaxy Anton Wrestling).

That redesign and that team... Consider my expectations shattered.

EDIT: As for what happened to Team Mexico. Maybe it's gonna be Angel and two brand new Mexican characters. Or maybe there won't be a Team Mexico at all. We have to wait and see.

A.B.I.torial: Melty Blood Character Designs Are Bland, And That's Perfectly Fine

The latest A.B.I.torial explains why Melty Blood characters look the way they do and the difference between fighting game character design and visual novel character design. Melty Blood is a spinoff of a visual novel called Tsukihime. All these characters come from a vistual novel.
So Jack-O's crouching pose has become a trend on social media (#jackochallenge). Sure, she had the same pose back in Xrd, but now that the Guilty Gear series has gotten a huge spike in popularity more people than ever are noticing things like this. That's why the pose didn't became a trend before.

Speaking of Jack-O's crouching pose.
