KOF XIII – Duo Lon: OS against an invincible command grab by GuttsCL

Yay for new tech.

Our favorite Chilean tutorial video maker, GuttCl, is at it again.  Most likely inspired by ideas discussed in this recently released video, a bunch of other tutorial videos have been uploaded with actual applications of the Option Select.

Strangely, GuttCl has not put up any description of the exact input to trigger this Option Select.  An update will be edited in once this happens.  Enjoy the videos and challenge yourselves to come up with some new uses.
