Unblockable ultra: Decapre's DCM can not be stopped if Vega tries to crouch block point blank - Ultra Street Fighter 4

DoctorClaw, a very skilled Vega player in Ultra Street Fighter 4, recently discovered a peculiar unblockable that involves Decapre. Luckily, Sonyono was able to capture the clip and upload it on YouTube.

Apparently, Vega can not crouch block the ground version of Decapre's DCM if it is done at point blank range. In the video, we see that DoctorClaw is holding down-back in an attempt to block the oncoming ultra, but to no avail.

Vega can, however, block the ultra if he does so standing, but this is definitely something to watch out for if you find yourself playing this match-up.

Check out Decapre's unblockable ultra 2 below.

Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano: Ultra Street Fighter 4 was green-lit because the fans wanted to play the Street Fighter X Tekken characters in SF4

If you were one of the many folks who told Capcom's Yoshinori Ono that you wished for the Street Fighter X Tekken characters Hugo, Rolento, Elena and Poison to one day be playable in the Street Fighter 4 series, then give yourself a pat on the back.

Your feedback was the very reason why Ono decided to green-light Ultra Street Fighter 4 as the next iteration of the game, according to Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano in an interview with Weekly Famitsu magazine this week.

"Originally, SSF4AE was going to be the final iteration of the game," he said.

Daigo on his losses to John Choi, Filipino Champ: 'It wasn't because I let my guard down or anything like that; they were just really good'

On this week's episode of Topanga TV, MCZ|Daigo appeared on the show as a guest in part to promote the new manga series based on his life that's currently being serialized in the Weekly Georgia free-to-read smartphone app.

While on the stream, the Mad Catz-sponsored pro chatted with MCZ|Tokido, MCZ|Mago and EG|Momochi on a number of subjects, including what he thought were the reasons behind his losses to RG|Filipino Champ and John Choi at EVO this year.

"With the Dhalsim match-up, there were problems with it that I was still quite uncertain about," the 33-year-old said.

Rolento gets a hit-confirmable UC2 after counter-hit? Nemo vs. Tokido at Topanga Banzuke, also ft. Momochi

It's been a while since we've seen BE|Nemo in action in Ultra Street Fighter 4. Unfortunately, due to work, Nemo was not able to make it to EVO this year.

Nevertheless, the talented fighting games player has been putting in a lot of time grinding his way up the Japanese arcade leaderboards in Ultra Street Fighter 4. He is now Tokyo's #2 player, which puts him right after MCZ|Daigo who is both the #1 ranking player on both the Tokyo and Japan national leaderboards.

BE|Nemo recently went up against Tokyo U graduate and Mad Catz-sponsored pro gamer Tokido in a best-of-3 set that took place as part of the Topanga Banzuke ranking battles event. And thanks to Topanga TV, we now have video footage of that match.

Check out the Topanga TV stream archive embedded below for the BE|Nemo (Rolento) vs. MCZ|Tokido match, which starts at 01:19:43.

Also featured this week is a match between EG|Momochi (Ken) and Hesame (Gen), which starts at 01:12:00.

Report: Japanese player said EVO 2014 setup was lagging in USF4, may have impacted Daigo's match

EVO 2014 was an enormous tournament jam-packed with hype, salt, tears, and intense moments. This year we witnessed two of the largest upsets ever as both MCZ|Daigo and Infiltration were eliminated before reaching top 24. Many viewers wondered how two of the most accomplished Street Fighter 4 players were sent home so quickly, and a recent development suggests that a previously unknown factor could have affected player performance.

Beast Note stumbled across a conversation on Twitter that claims there may have been lag present during some of the Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches at the event.

When asked why MCZ|Daigo Umehara lost to John Choi at EVO, a Japanese Blanka player named NeroBlanka, who was in attendance, responded saying that she experienced severe lag while playing Ultra Street Fighter 4 at the event.

Nero feels that the slow down was worse than that which you'd experience online at home, and says that it could have been a factor in MCZ|Daigo's elimination.

Ultra Street Fighter 4, Dota 2, Hearthstone made official games at the inaugural World eSports Championship Games; co-organized by former WCG staffers

Earlier this year, the World Cyber Games announced that it would be shutting its doors -- and just like that, after 14 years of operations, the dream of holding an Olympic-sized eSports festival had been over.

Or so we thought. Not wanting to give up on that dream, former WCG COO Bory Jun, along with a bunch of the most experienced staffers from the eSports company, founded AGN Inc in South Korea.

And they're teaming up with China's Global Mobile Game Confederation (GMGC) to organize the inaugural World eSports Championship Games (WECG), an international e-Sports festival much in the veins of the WCG this year.

In June, WECG 2014 announced StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft as the first two official games in its line-up.

This week, they've announced two more: Dota 2 and Ultra Street Fighter 4.
