Daigo, Xian, Kazunoko, and Xiao Hai invited to compete at Canada Cup Master Series - 8-man, pay-per-view invitational tournament

Last year, Canada Cup Gaming announced that they would no longer be running traditional major tournaments. However, this does not mean they have given up running events all together.

Yesterday, the organization announced that they will be returning to the tournament scene on November 7th-9th with the Canada Cup Master Series. Strictly an Ultra Street Fighter 4 event, the Master Series will pit 8 players (4 former Canada Cup champions, and 4 spots earned through seeding events), against one another in a first-to-7, round robin competition.

The past four Canada Cup champions: MCZ|Daigo, Kazunoko, RZR|Xian, and QANBA|Xiao Hai have all been invited to compete, and the latter have already confirmed that they will be in attendance.

This particular invitational event will have $20,000 CDN (roughly $18,432 USD) up for grabs. Below you can find a break down of the prize pot, along with additional information.

Evil Ryu is engulfed in flames and loses effects on fireballs, Poison's EX Rekka doesn't combo on Fuerte, and more: USF4 glitches and interesting bits

A couple of weeks back, CrossCounta sent us a very interesting Ultra Street Fighter 4 compilation that showcases a number of glitches, interesting moments, and combos.

Among the crazy clips featured here, we get to see some classic pass-through glitch set-ups, Red Focus antics, and grab moves cancelling each other out.

What's even more interesting is the strange bug we see that involves Evil Ryu becoming surrounded by what appears to be flames, in addition to his red energy, after being hit by C. Viper's Ultra 1. In this particular bit of footage we see that the effects for Viper's ultra and E. Ryu's fireballs seem to be missing.

There's quite a bit more to see here, so be sure to check out this awesome Ultra Street Fighter 4 compilation below.

'My top 3 EVO matches weren't that hard; my match-up knowledge was way beyond my opponents' - EventHubs' exclusive Luffy interview on his win and more

Olivier 'Luffy' Hay made headlines this year when he not only took home the EVO championship in Ultra Street Fighter 4, but became the first European player to ever do so during the Street Fighter 4 series.

Thankfully, we here at EventHubs' managed to score an interview with the Rose specialist himself, where he talks about how people currently perceive Rose, his mindset during matches, and just how he managed to bring home the gold title at EVO 2014. Below, you'll find a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: First off, congraulations on winning EVO. Being the first European champion is huge, and you did an amazing job throughout the entire tournament, beating more incredible players than we can even list, but in the end you had to defeat RZR|Fuudo, a former EVO champion, and then the current Topanga League champion, Bonchan. How did you feel, and what were you thinking, during these extremely high-pressure matches?

MD|Luffy: First off, thanks!

During these matches, I was extremely concentrated. I wanted to play my A game for the whole tournament, which I feel that I did well. I was only thinking about playing the matchup like I know it, and having good adaptation to what my opponent is doing, to get the strongest advantage for myself.

But in the end, I'm kind of dissatisfied as my top 3 matches weren't that hard. My knowledge of those two matchups, Fei Long and Sagat, were way beyond my opponents' understanding of the matchup. A satisfying win is when you struggle hard for it, isn't it?

For example, I was very happy when I saw the K.O. text against Snake Eyez, because I felt that it was a really great match, and that we both put on our best moves while knowing that our opponent is at 100%.

'Eduardo sat in his chair for a good five minutes, hunched over and put his hands over his head' – Evil Geniuses reflect on Evolution 2014

Here is an interesting fact: Evil Geniuses have placed in the top 8 of Evolution no less than 16 times since the team's inception in 2010.

You would think a team posting such high results would be satisfied, especially when you consider they had five top 8 placements this year alone. On the contrary, Evil Geniuses still consider Evolution 2014's performance a "struggle."

Hit the jump to read more and view a list of their Evolution top 8 placements.

Jaguar Kicks galore, touch of death combos, and more bullets than we'd like to count: Red Man shows the power of three Weskers in UMvC3

Red Man, the man behind the Maximum Wesker series, has created the ultimate tribute to his favorite Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character -- Wesker.

Using the the "save hack trick," Red Man was able to select three of the same character on one UMvC3 team. This makes for some very interesting combo set ups, as Wesker has a number of ways to extend combos using his own assists as back up.

Not only are the combos used here impressive, but the video editing itself is quite good, making this an enjoyable watch overall. Be sure to check out Maximum Wesker, the final tribute, below.

Unreleased Killer Instinct music from 1994: The alternate Eyedol theme that was never used

Killer Instinct is known for having some of the best music in fighting game history, and it appears that a hidden gem from the original game has surfaced roughly 20 years later.

Robin Beanland, one of the composers that worked on the first Killer Instinct, tweeted out an unused track last week for Throwback Thursday.

This tune was originally intended to be the main theme for Eyedol, Killer Instinct's final boss, but Beanland notes that he immediately threw it out after hearing it in-game. Still, it's a pretty awesome track, and amazing to see that there are still KI theme songs we haven't heard nearly 20 years after the first game's release.

Below you will find an embed to Eyedol's unused theme. Check it out and please feel free to let us know what you think of it!

The secrets of KenBot revealed – Dantarion explains the mechanics behind the computer controlled fighter in his latest video

Last week, news circulated quickly about a computer controlled fighter capable of playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 online and eliminating the competition with amazing reads. KenBot's reaction times and reads were so quick he almost appeared psychic, instantly punishing normal attacks with Ultra 1.

Now Dantarion has released a video explaining the mechanics behind KenBot's artificial intelligence. Displayed across the top of it is a black border filled with coordinates and values representing the location of each fighter and a complete breakdown of frame data. At one point, KenBot can be seen mashing the beginning inputs for its ultra, waiting only for the opponent to tap a button to finish the command and perform one of its instantaneous reads.

Check below to watch Dantarion explain his creation.
