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

Death Battle! Deadpool squares off against Deathstroke in a battle of gunfire, swordplay, regeneration and chimichangas

Here's another FGC-related Death Battle featuring my personal favorite Marvel character Deadpool and DC's Deathstroke.

Always entertaining, Wiz and Boomstick break down the stats of each of these characters and pit them against each other in a fight to the death.

This episode sees a return to the 3D fighting world and is one of the most entertaining and well-done bouts the program has created thus far.

Both of these combatants are experts in sword fighting, gun play and have that OP regenerative factor. Things are sure to get messy...

Oh, and like anything involving either Deadpool or Boomstick, this is a bit NSFW, so keep that in mind while watching. Without further adieu, hit the jump and check it out!

Momochi, you've just won Capcom Cup! What are you going to do next?! 'I'm taking Choco to Disneyland!' EG interviews Momochi on his tourney experience

Capcom Cup saw hundreds of predictions on who would be the champion of 2014.

MCZ|Daigo was, of course, the most common name to be brought up. There were a few others like this year's EVO champion MD|Luffy, RZR|Xian, Infiltration and Snake Eyez. Rarely though would one hear "Momochi is going to take the whole thing."

EG|Momochi is a great player, no one contests that, but it's been a while since we've seen him on a destructive rampage like many of the other competitors in the Cup. Combine this with the fact that he was to play Snake Eyez in the first round, and you wound up with a player that sort of faded into the background of many people's minds for the event.

Then he went and SYSTEMATICALLY DEMOLISHED EVERYONE in his way. With the exception of DIG|Ryan Hart, whom he ran it back with AND THEN SYSTEMATICALLY DEMOLISHED.

Evil Geniuses' Michael Migliacio sat down with the new champ to ask him about his experiences getting ready for and playing in the Capcom Cup. He also asks what Momochi's plans are for 2015, which is sure to be a huge year for Street Fighter and the FGC.

Here's a juicy question to start with:

Michael Migliacio: Before the tournament, which competitor did you fear the most? Why?

Momochi: Snake Eyez, definitely. I was disappointed and nervous when I found out that I would be facing a strong Zangief player in the first round. Even after defeating him, there was still a lot of pressure on me to keep performing at that level for the rest of the tournament.

Down Right Fierce: A documentary exploring the FGC's path towards becoming mainstream entertainment featuring Snake Eyez, F-Champ and Solid X Panda

With the announcement about the $500,000 prize pot for next year's Capcom Cup circuit, the community excitedly takes another step forward towards a more mainstream setting.

It's important for everyone in the Fighting Game Community to be aware of the direction we are moving. Change is good. Moving and shaking are what keep things alive and vibrant, but it's imperative that we be able to move through transitions gracefully. That grace will come from being informed and mindful of our situation at all times.

This documentary, executed beautifully by Adam Bayacal, is set up amidst the backdrop of the recent tournament Absolute Battle 5 in Texas. It follows a handful of Texas locals as they prepare for and participate in the tournament.

This is really only the storyline that exists as an example and a pointer towards the main theme of the film. This theme examines how majors like Absolute Battle are developing, growing and becoming candidates for mainstream entertainment in a similar realm to that of professional sports.

Interviews with personalities like Snake Eyez, Filipino Champ and Solid X Panda offer additional insight into the state of the community. Champ makes an interesting comparison with MMA Fighting, saying that MMA was fairly underground until it became sanctioned. After that, it exploded into the entity that it is today. Fighting games may very well be on the brink of doing something similar.

Take a few minutes to watch this short documentary and let us know what you think. There is certainly a lot to be discussed. You can view it by hitting the jump below.

Everything Riptor! SuperSajam does a character breakdown, shows you the booty bump, and mirror matches Maximilian with the human/raptor hybrid

Finally Riptor is here and she looks to be an incredibly versatile character.

With great pokes, strong keep-away, and scary offense Riptor looks to have all the tools to be a top character.

She is very unique in that her dash is actually a run that can be cancelled into different attacks. Additionally, she has multiple stances which mean even more options for her to choose from.

With everything at her disposal, the learning curve for Riptor may be a bit steep. That said, it looks like spending the time will be well worth the effort as she will be a force to be reckoned with here in Season 2 of Killer Instinct.

Hit the jump and check out the videos!

EventHubs lists top 30 Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players in 2014, #24 - #19 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #UMvC3rank

It's that time of year once again, folks! Tonight we return with our top players list for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This time around, we're sharing our picks for the 30 best warriors in 2014.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in player skill across the globe and personal opinion.

The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #24 - player #19 listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#UMvC3rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.

Level|Up announces Wednesday Night Fight's transition to the online world

Level|Up's Wednesday Night Fights tournament series was one of the longest running and most popular weekly events in the fighting game community. Super Arcade over in Walnut, California became known as the home of WNF (and Level|Up's other weekly event, The Runback), so it came a shock to most when the heads of the competitive gaming establishment and the tournament series -- Alex Valle and Mike Watson, respectively -- decided to part ways last month.

Since the amicable split, Super Arcade's Mike Watson continued to run weekly tournaments, but what was next for Level|Up remained a mystery, until now.

Alex Valle announced this week that Wednesday Night Fights will be making its transition from local to online. What once was a SoCal based event will now transcend the location barriers and become open to competitors all over the country.

Valle and the Level|Up crew intend to run the new, online WNF series in order to help players everywhere prepare for the upcoming year's major events.

Details are scarce at this time, but we can expect more information soon.

Mew2King covers why he thinks Diddy Kong is only the second best character in Super Smash Bros. 4, who's number one, and more in this video interview

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS's tiers have been in hot debate since the game's launch and subsequent patch. Diddy Kong, in particular, has become the center of attention for many fans of the series, some referring him to Smash 4's "Meta Knight" (a character so strong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that he was banned from multiple tournaments).

But Mew2King doesn't share the same sentiment as his peers. He places Diddy as the second best fighter on the belief that there exists someone even better.

This isn't the only moment in the footage his ideas fly in the face of accepted knowledge about the game, either.

Check out some text snippets from the video interview below to get you started and find out who this top player thinks holds the number one spot in Super Smash Bros. 4.

Read below to find out Ayano's statements and a confirmation on how EX moves will be performed in the newest Street Fighter.
