Exclusive interview! Alex Valle shares his incredibly valuable two cents on USF4's versions of Hugo and Ryu

When one discusses the founding fathers of America's Fighting Game Community there are a few names that are undoubtedly sure to come up. Amongst those names you'll almost always find Mr. Alex Valle.

Valle has paved the way and helped grow the FGC to what it is today. He is known for his contributions to both in-game strategy as well as to developing and growing the community.

He is a go-to source for sage advice for any and all up and comers. He was kind enough to give us some one on one time and discuss a few topics.

In this part one of our interview, Valle tells us why he is devoted to learning Hugo despite the fact that many are saying he is amongst the worst characters in the game. He also tells us what he thinks about the changes to Ryu and where he ranks in the tier lists.

'He’s a zoner… with a ranged grapple… and great (situational) mobility… and traps… oh, and curses too.' Developer's details on KI's newest character

Whatever happened to the good ol' days where you bought a game and you got all the characters? Honestly, this new approach may be better because it seems to get us back on the edge of our seats every time we start getting comfortable.

In the recent Maya Trailer. We got a sneak peak at the newest Killer Instinct character.

All we knew about him was that he was #notamummy. It's been over a month and we finally have more info on the newcomer.

It sounds as though he is going to be very unique in that he is primarily a zoner but also has the ability for ranged grapple. This seems to shy away from traditional fighting game character templates and create something of a hybrid zone-grappler.

Indeed the developers have nicknamed not-mummy new guy the 'Trap Grappler' which sounds pretty intimidating when you think about it. In any case our guess is that he'll be pretty fun to use and frustrating to play against. Zoning, mix ups AND curses? Come on now...

While they didn't give us his name they did post a piece of concept art which you can view by clicking the jump.

Devilish Daigo: Umehara lands Raging Demons in devastating fashion on Xian and Gackt - Highlights from Capcom Pro Tour Asia

Evil Ryu is known as a character with massive firepower when he's stocked with meter, but MCZ|Daigo Umehara has been making him look even deadlier with some very crafty uses of the fighter's kara Raging Demon in competitive matches.

Facing Razer's Gackt and Xian last night in the Capcom Pro Tour Asia event, Umehara landed multiple Raging Demons on his unsuspecting opponents.

Gackt and Xian are two phenomenal Ultra Street Fighter 4 players, and the fact Daigo was able to set them up multiple times for kara demons is quite impressive.

We've put together a set of highlights Umehara had against both players in animated gif form.

Top-secret military technology was used to make Virtua Fighter 2? Yep, that happened according to developer

Being a developer of new and innovative products can lead you down many unexpected pathways, and one such case was brought up by Yu Suzuki, who worked on many of Sega's big arcade hits, like the Virtua Fighter series.

Motion capture is widely used in gaming and movies in this day and age, but back in the early 1990s, it hadn't been used yet for gaming, according to Suzuki.

"At that time, motion capture technology was used only in health care, and we were the first to apply that technology in a game, which was Virtua Fighter 2," said Suzuki.

The U.S. military had previously used magnetic motion capture to track head movements of pilots.

8-player Smash Bros. gameplay - controller configurations, gameplay settings and more

If you're like most people, you were fairly jazzed when you heard about the 8-player option for the new Smash Bros. game on Wii U, but you probably wondered how it'd work.

The answers are not too far removed from what you'd assume, but here's the rundown.

• Only Time and Stocks rules can be used in 8-player mode.
• Team battles support up to 4 teams.

The following controller configurations can be used.
• Wii U GamePad (max 1)
• Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus (max 7)
• Wii U Pro Controller (max 7)
• Nintendo GameCube controller (max 8)
• Nintendo 3DS system (max 8, must have 3DS version of game)

It's worth noting that each GameCube controller adapter takes two USB slots, so if you hook two adapters in — it will take all four of the Wii U's USB slots.

After the break, you'll find 8-player gameplay footage and a nifty video preview from Polygon which explores some of the newly announced features.
