King of Fighters 14 Moves

Sometimes you just have to work with what you've got - JediCowboy crafts the $9 fightstick

Over the years, we've seen the community get incredibly creative when it comes to crafting their own DIY arcade sticks. From shoeboxes, to a hollowed out XBOX chassis, if you can think of it, someone's probably tried to make an arcade stick out of it.

Inspired by a thread that he'd seen on Reddit, JediCowboy decided to try his hand at a project that costs next to nothing to put together, especially compared to other sticks that will set you back over 100 dollars.

Armed with a $9 keyboard, cardboard, ducttape, and some patience, JediCowboy manages to put together a finished product that's actually useable, and improves a bit on the original design to boot.

The video feaures a time lapse of the building process, and a bit of gameplay with the completed stick. You can see it for yourself after the jump.

Brilliant spacing, fearless reads, and more: Daigo remains stoic in the face of some serious competition in this ranked compilation

It's very likely that as long as he picks up a controller to compete, BST|Daigo will remain subject to the watchful eyes of players that want to see him do well, learn from him, or otherwise.

Game Fighter is one of many that has their watchful eye on Daigo's progress as he clocks in ranked hours on Street Fighter 5. In this compilation video, you'll find several matches that Daigo's played against the other solid players in the Super Diamond rank.

It goes without saying that getting a mental break out of Daigo is an immensely difficult task; even if he's in an unfavorable situation, he's more than confident enough to just do what he wants. For example, this Cammy player does manage to corner him, but loses more than just the positional advantage when she gets a bit overconfident:

Fix for King of Fighters 14's online issues already on the way; may launch in a few days time, says SNK Playmore

King of Fighters 14 has been fairly well received since its release earlier this week. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the game's online experience.

SNK Playmore took to Twitter this morning to assure KOF14 fans that a patch to fix these issues is already in review and may be dropping sooner than many expected.

We'll be posting an update as we learn more about the release of King of Fighters 14's upcoming patch, so be sure to stay tuned.

King of Dinosaurs REALLY isn't Tizoc in King of Fighters 14, folks... *wink, wink*

In King of Fighters 14, there is a character that goes by the name of King of Dinosaurs. He's a large, T-Rex-headed wrestler that fans feel might actually be another big grappler in the King of Fighters series -- Tizoc.

Both characters are strikingly similar, especially in their move set. However, SNK Playmore has stuck to their guns in saying that these two fighters are not the same person, for the most part.

It looks like this might be a running gag among the development team, as they actually included an interaction in-game that pokes fun at the identity crisis and confirms that these two are one in the same, without saying it outright.

In the story mode, if you play Terry and match up against King of Dinosaurs it'll activate a quick cut scene in which the grappler is referred to as Tizoc. He begins replying normally until he realizes the mistake, then scrambles and stammers to assure Terry that he doesn't know anyone by the name of Tizoc.

Deadpool gets drawn like one of Jack's French girls, Q creeps through the streets, and more: Boss Logic's awesome fighting game artwork

Boss Logic has been a well-known artist in the fighting game community for years now. Despite his long-time activity, it doesn't appear that he's slowed down one bit when it comes to producing awesome artwork.

Today, we're taking a look at some of the excellent fighting game-related work that Boss Logic has created in recent years.

Some of these characters will be instantly recognizable, such as Chun-Li and Ryu from Street Fighter 5. However, we also have a number of interesting mash ups, like the cross between Ultra Street Fighter 4's Decapre and Marvel Comics' Iron Man.

You can check out a handful of the art pieces below, but be sure to hit the jump for more.

Buff Zangief, nerf Chun-Li: Here's which Street Fighter 5 characters our readers feel need the most re-balancing

Updated: Poll results have been finalized. You can view the final numbers after the jump.

Earlier: What are we getting ourselves into here?

After Capcom Cup this year, we expect to see Street Fighter 5 developers roll out their yearly update to the game. This update will supposedly deal with character re-balancing, something that we haven't seen outside of major bug fixes yet.

Our newest poll asks you EventHubs readers the question: Which Street Fighter 5 characters need the most change? The catch is you can only choose three, so you'll have to narrow your decision.

This includes who you'd want to make better or worse in your dream patch for SF5, so don't forget to keep both extremes of your tier list in mind. What's more important? Nerf the top tiers or buff the low ones? You can offer your vote in the poll below.
