Yata!

There are probably only three of you that will know what I'm talking about, but...

Some little baby combo videos for Midnight Arena got posted. I'm sure they're completely non-optimal and showoffy and don't at all represent what the game will look like when played, but hey, let's watch some of them anyway!
