Kazunoko's Urien looks pretty strong... until Ayano bodies him and shows us the character's true potential

Tomoaki Ayano, Capcom's Assistant Producer for Street Fighter 5, took on last year's Capcom Cup winner GGP|Kazunoko in a Urien mirror match at Tokyo Game Show.

As one the best Street Fighter players on Earth, Kazunoko already shows some prowess with the game's new character. Ayano proceeded to jump on the sticks to show off some stylish combos and clever reads, leaving the reigning Cap Cup champ in the dust.

Before we get into it however, we wanted to share with you this double Critical Art sequence that reveals just how invincible Urien is during his animation. Ayano rips his Critical Art, and Kazunoko responds by doing the same right after. Neither player's CA actually hits their foe:

Billy and Kukri are cancelling moves when they shouldn't be able to; the Combonauts have found two more King of Fighters 14 bugs

The Combonauts continue to excavate King of Fighters 14, and have found no less than two new bugs in the game.

Both of these have to do with cancels. Though you aren't supposed to be able to cancel EX moves into Supers, Billy can do so with his EX Kyoushuu Hishou Kon in certain circumstances.

Kukri takes things even farther when he shows that he can Max cancel a normal move upon whiffing it. Usually characters must cancel such moves from hit or block.

You'll see examples of both bugs in the videos below.

Street Fighter 5 color packs are on their way, Capcom clarifies exactly what you'll get with each purchasable bundle

The go-to single player mode when Street Fighter 5 dropped back in February was Survival, an endurance gauntlet that would unlock character colors upon completion.

While nabbing a character's third costume color by completing the 10-level easy setting on Survival was a breeze, finishing the 30-level normal setting for colors four, five and six was much more difficult, and completing the 50-level hard difficulty was cause for many players to throw their controllers out of frustration.

Thus many players seldom sought to obtain colors seven, eight, nine and 10, seeing the difficult and time-consuming Survival Mode as simply not worth it.

Capcom recently promised to make colors purchasable, and have since specified further exactly how this will work.

Street Fighter 5's September update aims to refine the ragequit punishing system

Ragequitting has been a thorn in the community's side since Street Fighter 5's release; between players abusing the system early on, to countermeasures punishing innocent players, it's safe to say that the current punishment system leaves something to be desired.

When it comes to trying to improve on this part of the Street Fighter experience, there is a bit of good news coming. The major patch update coming next Thursday has some adjustments in place aiming to alleviate some of the issues that players have had with being punished unjustly.

The current timing window in place causes some issues for players who want to do things like share clips or close the game without going all the way back to the main menu. According to the patch notes, the game will no longer count disconnects once league points and fight money have been calculated.
