This ain't a placeholder, people! Maya's actual Ultra Combo shown off at Tokyo Game Show 2014 - Killer Instinct season 2

Back when the first footage of Maya in Killer Instinct season 2 was shown off at Tokyo Game Show 2014, fans wondered what the returning character's Ultra Combo looked like on next-gen. Unfortunately, since the game is still in development, Maya simply had a placeholder Ultra that was a copy of Orchid's in KI season 1.

But now footage of Maya's actual Ultra Combo has surfaced, and we have it here for you today. This particular stylish finisher looks a bit slower than the others, and the duration appears to be the longest in the game, so far.

Having said that, the animations look great, and we get to see Maya performing crazy dagger toss loops, her Jungle Leap, and more.

You can check it out below.

Unbreakable Jago double fireball loop discovered in Killer Instinct season 2 early access

Killer Instinct season 2's early access kicked off today, and folks are already hard at work hitting the lab and figuring out brand new tech.

Our first news tip submission features a very useful technique utilizing Jago's new Instinct properties. For those who may be unfamiliar, in KI season 2 Jago no longer regenerates life from moving forward, but instead gains life by hitting the opponent with fireballs. Instead of one fireball, however, Jago now shoots two.

By shooting double fireballs from a specific range, Jago can capture an opponent in an unbreakable combo that deals 45% damage if two Shadow Endokukens are used at the end.

This loop is a bit tough to hit in-game, but I'm sure all of the high-level Jago players will find block strings to put them in the perfect range to land it. Check out Jago's unbreakable double Endokuken loop below.

Cjbqulix has sent us another superb Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video featuring the fearsome femme fatale -- Poison.

Keep your eyes peeled for two of my personal favorite combos: one that manages to land 8 hits of Rekkas with no FADC, and the combo that connects both Poison's Super and Ultra in one go.

There's a lot of great action here, so be sure to check out this Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV below.

Which side is this guy on anyway?! These tricky Rolento setups will leave your opponents scratching their heads

While there's been a lot of discussion on just how good or bad Rolento actually is in Ultra Street Fighter 4, I think one point that has been near-unanimously agreed upon is his devastating mixup potential.

There are many situations where Rolento will come flying towards you on your wakeup, and it's near impossible to tell which side you need to block on. Here's a video showcasing several such setups, which will hopefully increase your level of Rolento play, or perhaps even counter-play.

Mike Ross took Hugo!? Mago selected Yang?!? Highlights of USF4 TGS exhibition between these two competitors

Mike Ross and MCZ|Mago had an entertaining first to 5 exhibition yesterday in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and we wanted to look back at some of the highlights you may have missed.

Ross opened strong in this set, with a lot of very clever reads, which did massive damage to the low stamina Yang. Here are a few early highlights in animated form.
