Updated: No Tekken 7 San Diego Comic-Con panel live stream due to internet issues

Updated: Although the live stream was scheduled to kick off at noon, according to a tweet by the official Team Spooky Twitter account, the internet at the convention is not strong enough to allow broadcasting. Spooky is recording the panel locally and will be broadcasting it later. Earlier: Bandai Namco Games's fighting game panel at San Diego Comic-Con is about to start. The stream is about to go live.

Tekken 7 producer and game director Katsuhiro Harada said at EVO 2014 to expect to hear more details about the next sequel, said to be "the final battle", in Bandai Namco Games's long-running series.

Join us as we find out what's in store for fighting game fans in this next installment.

Nuki was disgusted by 15-year-old Daigo's lame Guile in SF2 at first: New manga series depicts The Beast's teenage years, appearances by Xian, Tokido

When Nuki first met MCZ|Daigo, the latter had been a new kid on the block in the arcade that Nuki frequented.

The year was 1996. Although both Nuki and Daigo were both 15 at the time, Nuki had already been a familiar face in his local arcade scene. He was known not only for his amazing ability to rack up humongous win streaks, but also for being a nice guy in general.

Despite his friendly disposition, however, when Nuki first saw Daigo in the arcades, he didn't even bother walking up to talk to him. He was too disgusted by the lame way that Daigo had been playing Guile in SF2 to want to, the first chapter of "Umehara Fighting Gamers", a new manga series based on The Beast's teenage years, reveals.

Although it's entirely in Japanese, you can read Umehara Fighting Gamers for free in a "Shuukan Georgia" smartphone app that's available on the iTunes and Google Play app stores.

The first two chapters, which came out today, not only features Daigo and Nuki in their teenage years; MCZ|Tokido and RZR|Xian also made cameo appearances in a brief introduction of the FGC to readers.

Check out their mugs in the images below, as well as a concise summary of what the first two chapters covered after the jump.

5 Axe Kicks and 900 stun in a single combo; RyuApprentice's latest CMV focuses on Evil Ryu's 'stun gun' in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Prepare to get dizzied! RyuApprentice has published a new Evil Ryu CMV, this time focusing on the various ways you could pull out the stun-gun that Capcom gave the character, when you've successfully landed a heavy jump-in attack.

It may not be as abusable as the gun that Capcom gave T. Hawk, but it's still a fairly fearsome-looking weapon, if you can manage to pull it off in a real match against an unsuspecting opponent. Stay vigilant, online warriors! The streets in USF4 are no longer safe!

But that's a big 'if', of course -- many of the links you see in these combos are 1F links.

Still, it doesn't make any of these combos less entertaining to watch, especially since RyuApprentice managed to string together five Axe Kicks in a single combo -- and that's before Evil Ryu's opponent gets dizzied.

Hugo has a different kind of pass-through glitch: Light punches completely whiff on crouching Poison after body splash in Ultra Street Fighter 4

It seems that Poison's wonky hurtbox strikes again. We were recently sent a video in which Hugo's crouching light punch passes through Poison after a Body Splash in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

When Hugo hits a cross up Body Splash on a crouching Poison, both his crouching and standing light punches will actually go right through her, causing the attack to completely whiff.

This isn't the first time we've seen strange properties come as a result of this strange hurtbox, as earlier this week we reported on an odd bug that allows Poison to completely avoid low attacks when she transitions from a crouching state to a standing position.

Capcom's own Peter "Combofiend" Rosas informed EventHubs that the is company is aware of the aforementioned bug and is currently working on a fix, so hopefully our story here will get the word out to them about this new glitch discovery.

Below you can check out Hugo's light punch pass-through glitch.

Wario's inclusion in Smash leaked by Nintendo? Super Smash Bros. 3DS appears under "Wario" game section in eShop

Earlier this morning something quite peculiar took place over on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Super Smash Bros. 3DS, the handheld version of the upcoming Smash Bros. title, prematurely appeared under the "Wario" game section.

All of the games listed under this section feature Wario in one way or another. What makes this interesting is the fact that though most of the titles shown are Wario series specific games like WarioWare or Wario Land, games like Mario Party and Mario Kart -- titles where Wario was not the main protagonist, but rather a playable character -- are also listed.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS has since been removed from the Wario section, but luckily Twitter users Yoshirider123 and Wario64 were able to snap quick photos of this strange occurrence before it was rectified.

Google purchases Twitch for $1 billion, reports say deal now confirmed

Google's arrangement to purchase Twitch, the massive live streaming service, has been confirmed today, according to VentureBeat.

In May of this year, word began to spread about YouTube's possible acquisition of Twitch for $1 billion. According to unnamed sources that are "familiar with the matter," the deal has been confirmed as of today and is being handled by Google's YouTube branch.

Google purchased YouTube back in 2006 for $1.65 billion, and it appears as though they will be dishing out another grand sum of cash to take hold of Twitch.

Both companies have decided to stay silent on the specifics of this deal, so the exact amount settled on, among other things, is currently unknown. We will update our story once more information unfolds.

Kim Wu and Riptor hinted to return in Killer Instinct season 2, next character revealed will be brand new

Earlier today, Microsoft Studios' Adam Isgreen took to the new Killer Instinct forum in order to divulge a bit of information on KI's upcoming season 2.

Firstly, he mentioned that TJ Combo is in the final polishing stages of development. Killer Instinct's classic boxer now has facial animations, a new stance, and his height was increased to reach just under Thunder's.

According to the latest post, Maya is actually taller than previously noted, (now about 6'2"), and although her order of monster hunters is Incan in origin, she is actually Brazilian with lineage from South and Central American cultures.

Uryo: 'Decapre can end a round almost instantly with a few good reads' - an analysis of the Russian assassin's options when her prey is cornered

According to Japanese C. Viper and Sakura player Uryo in an entry published today on his blog, the most fun part about playing Decapre is when you get to abuse her "dagger trap" after zoning your opponent all the way into the corner.

Although Decapre's LP Rapid Dagger is -3 on block, due to the decent amount of pushback from the move, if you perform the move from the right range, not a lot of characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4 have viable punishes for it.

You can thus abuse the move repeatedly on these characters in the corner, in a manner similar to Ryu's fireball trap, and the only way out for them is if they can make the right read to jump out.

But that's easier said than done. Especially not once you've managed to apply these tips on Decapre's dagger trap game from one of Japan's foremost character specialists.

Below you'll find our translation of Uryo's detailed run through on what to do after a cr.MK -> LP Rapid Dagger when Decapre's opponent is in the corner.

Can Daigo's UmeHugo take down Sako's Evil Ryu? Part 2 of Team Daigo vs. Team Sako, also ft. Mago, Bonchan, Kazunoko and Itazan

Last week, Capcom Japan published the first half of a first-to-5 3-on-3 team battle exhibition match between six of Japan's top Ultra Street Fighter players.

In the first half, the team captained by MCZ|Daigo, comprising himself, Kazunoko and RZR|Itabashi Zangief, took an early lead against Hori|Sako's team, with MCZ|Mago and Bonchan as his teammates.

The second half of that match was published today, and in it we get to see more great matches, including -- finally -- a direct confrontation between the two team captains, MCZ|Daigo and Hori|Sako.

Due to the special rules in the exhibition match, in this particular match, MCZ|Daigo was required to use one of USF4's new characters, picked at random for him by means of drawing lots, due to his team being in the lead.

As luck would have it, however, MCZ|Daigo managed to draw the lot for the one character that's the worst possible Scenario for Hori|Sako to deal with: Hugo, whom The Beast has had extensive play time with.

Will MCZ|Daigo's "UmeHugo" take it over one of USF4's top-tier characters? Or will Sako's mastery of Evil Ryu be enough to overcome his unfamiliarity with the match-up? Find out in the video below.
