Tiers for Ultra Street Fighter 4 Tiers for Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Blanka is more iconic than Sagat!? WatchMojo ran a poll to determine the top 10 characters in Street Fighter – here are the results

Top 10 lists can almost always be a good time. You get to see the opinions of others, then shout out in the comments about how they're wrong. WatchMojo has just released its own picks for the long running series's roster.

Before you watch the video, you'll want to keep some of your expectations in check. The choices heavily rely on the cast of a single Street Fighter entry and feature such classic stereotypes as Ryu and Ken essentially counting as the same person since they "share the same fighting technique."

I will leave you with one hint, though. It ranks Blanka higher than Sagat.

So why share the list? WatchMojo's vote has been made up of a more casual crowd than fighting gaming dedicated sites like EventHubs. Since Capcom is looking to attract new players for Street Fighter 5, this might give some insight into the opinions of those Capcom are trying to attract.

If you're ready to find out who WatchMojo viewers value the most in Street Fighter, check out the video below.

Number 1 Ken isn't enough: 5,000PP, 16-year-old USFIV player dominates with Ken, Evil Ryu, and Yun in the latest Olympic Gaming Spotlight

Olympic Gaming has released its newest entry in its Spotlight series, this time featuring 16 year old Shizukage. He's not only the number 1 Ken online, but also a devastating Evil Ryu and Yun player. Nonetheless, you'll see him take on John Choi, Spriggan, and Olympic Gaming's former "spotlight" AfterDeath.

Shizukage may represent a newer generation of Street Fighter players. When asked in his interview, he replied that he uses a pad and has never been to a tournament. Despite this, he must have some knowledge of tournament results, as he speaks of favorite players like EG|Momochi. With Ono-san talking about attracting younger players to the scene, Shizukage might be part of that targeted demographic, so it's of great interest to see how he views the scene and his own future with Street Fighter.

Read below to find out his perspective and check out this talented player in action.

Nomiibos! Masashiro Sakurai himself can't get his hands on select Smash 4 Amiibos; Just how rare are these Super Smash figurines?

It was a bold move by developers to introduce Amiibos as an auxiliary to Smash 4. It seems it was a brilliant call, as stores just can't seem to keep them on shelves.

Now, it's one thing for the general public to have a hard time getting their hands on elusive Japanese products, the Pokémon card fad recalls some pretty horrific nightmares from our past, but it's a whole other thing when the series creator can't get his hands on them!

Masahiro Sakurai tweeted a few days back, that he is having a hard time finding Sheik, Lucario, Meta Knight and Rosalina.

For a translation of this tweet, be sure to read on.

Ono: Street Fighter 5's netcode will be based on Street Fighter X Tekken's, but tuned for better performance, will run smoother than Tekken's

At the Taipei Game Show, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong (SCEH) and Taiwan (SCET) arranged for EventHubs and various Taiwanese media representatives to attend a group interview session with Yoshinori Ono, where we got to grill the Capcom corporate officer on all things Street Fighter 5.

This is the first part of that interview, and it covers one of the hot-button concerns for the fighting games community: how will the netcode in SF5 be like?

KarbyP: When it comes to online play, according to numerous fighting game fans, the netcode in Katsuhiro Harada's Tekken series is best-in-class, beating out the online play experience in Street Fighter.

So we're wondering if Ono is confident that Street Fighter 5's netcode will be able to knock Tekken's netcode out of the park, this time around.

Ono: We're losing to the Tekken series in terms of the netcode?

Solid Snake sneaks into Ultra Street Fighter 4, Catwoman steals a spot in the roster, and Aquaman dives into the fight in these PC mods

PC Best Mods has uploaded a wonderful trio of Ultra Street Fighter IV mods. This time, you'll be able to play Guile as young Solid Snake, old Solid Snake, or be fully covered in a stealth costume. The attention to detail to each iteration of Snake is extremely impressive.

My personal favorite is Catwoman utilizing a elongated version of Poison's own whip. You can play as the standard Catwoman or as the one featured in Tim Burton's version. Many of Poison's poses and actions work perfectly for Gotham's antiheroine (sorry, no Hally Berry for you handful of fans).

Finally, in a sort of two for one, you have Aquaman Ken, complete with trident haudokens, as well as M. Bison as Superman. To get you started, check out a few images of the mods, although you really need to see some of these in motion to fully appreciate the attention to detail.

Shadowloo Showdown 6's trailer may have just set the new standard for how to hype a tournament, features animated M. Bison and Magneto face off, more

The average tournament trailer is a recipe comprised of dubstep and explosive text listing the big names of the event. This formula has seemed commonplace for years. And while it's worked, it's also become a little stagnant.

So it's a great pleasure to watch Shadowloo Showdown 6's attempt to elevate how to hype you up for a tournament. While you'll certainly see some player announcements in text, but that's after several inspirational speeches that mirror the spirit of the fighting game community and an animation of Magneto and M. Bison fighting it out. Even the player announcements have been done well. Furthermore, it confirms how stacked this tournament is with international competition. Shadowloo Showdown 6 is only one week away, starting February 6th.

Check out the trailer below, then judge for yourself if it's a step above what we've come expect from tournament videos in the comments below.

Desk has a CMV for every character in Ultra Street Fighter 4 Omega Edition, pick any one of them in this nifty video

The situation: You're about to hop on Omega Mode and do some sick combos in an endless lobby to assert your dominance like the drill sergeant from Full Metal Jacket on a mic. The problem? You don't know any combos, and because you're such a busy person, you don't want to have to waste your time sifting through some punk's poor quality, off-camera footage in the hopes of getting that perfect, impractical combo.

Or maybe you just like to watch a combo master like Desk at work. That's okay, too.

Either way, from Abel to Zangief, Desk has you covered in a video that links to some excellent Omega combos for every character in the game. It's extremely impressive how he's been able to accomplish such a large task over the last few months, and you might find yourself clicking through most of the roster over the next hour without even realizing it.

Check out Desk's latest creation below and select your character.

If the floor was lava, Third Strike's Chun-Li and Gill would be safe in these masterful, infinite juggles – one even catches Gill's resurrection!

Combo videos can always be a joy (infinite combo videos even more sometimes if they involve interesting strings); however, infinite combos that keep the opponent in an eternal juggle state are almost always something special.

In the first half of the video, you'll get to enjoy watching AlexShadenkk's Elena masterfully keep Chun-Li airborne with enough craft to make Oro blush. In the second, Ken takes on Gill, going so far as to even keep juggling after his resurrection!

Video: Street Fighter 5 exhibition match between Daigo (Ryu) and GamerBee (Chun) at Sony PlayStation's Taipei Game Show booth

We're reporting to you live from the Taipei Game Show from the Taipei World Trade Center today. Moments ago, the Capcom Street Fighter 5 and Monster Hunter stage event at the Sony PlayStation booth here just concluded.

As you may have realized by now, the entire presentation was only meant for the eyes of those in attendance, and the stage event could not be live streamed to the rest of the world who couldn't be there; it's not just Capcom's stage event -- everything that was shown on the PlayStation stage at Taipei Game Show (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, Sword Art Online: Lost Song, Metal Gear Solid V, etc) could not be streamed.

So we're bringing you the next best thing to a live stream -- we've got footage of the MCZ|Daigo (Ryu) vs. AVM|GamerBee (Chun-Li) exhibition, and we're pulling all the stops to bring you this footage as quickly as we can after the fact.

Check out the exhibition match below -- and watch out for the moment when GamerBee pulls out an Omega Chun-Li from out of nowhere.

Then check back on EventHubs later in the day to find out more about what was said during the stage show, and in our interview with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono on the subject of Street Fighter 5.
