Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Tekken 7 releases a myriad of customization options for 18 different characters

Here we find a whole slew of costume accessories for some of the combatants in the upcoming Tekken 7. These customization items were just recently revealed and are applicable to the following characters:

Claudio, Katarina, Kazuya, Heihachi, Lars, Alisa, Asuka, Lili, Xiaoyu, Feng, Paul, Law, Steve, Leo, Hworang, King, Dragunov and Brian.

It seems as though many of the accessories, such as the wings and the glasses, can be applied to multiple different characters. This leads us to question if any accessories are character specific or if they will all be up for grabs for any character to dress up with.

Zangief's USF4 tier match ups broken down by Snake Eyez

We have another top player tier list today, this time from SoCal's Snake Eyez.

Snake has skyrocketed to the top of the USF4 class with multiple tournament victories and a top 8 finish at EVO 2014.

One of the most impressive things about this man, Snake Eyez has taken a character with some really difficult match ups and made them look like cake.

Snake Eyez says that Zangief only has 8 favorable match ups, 13 even ones and then a whopping 16 in the opponent's favor. What's more, some of Snake's tier chart really doesn't line up with many of the other EventHubs Zangief voters. Chime in and tell us what you think about this list.

YOU LOSE! ViperGoomba shows us 38 gnarly 100% health combos with Gouken resets

For the small populous of Gouken players out there, these videos are exciting. For everyone else... they're terrifying. ViperGoomba, a double grand master on Xbox Live, has figured out reset combos that will defeat the entire USF4 cast in one reset.

Oh sure, every character has some ridiculous combo or gimmick but they're always incredibly situational and impractical... right? Not these. They require only 0.5 to 1.6 ex-meters along with ultra 2. That's not at all too much to ask from a zoning character.

Once we begin to see combos like these in regular game play, we very well may see the old man rise a few positions on tier lists. Who knew nothingness could be so deadly? A special thanks to ViperGoomba for linking this to us. Prepare yourselves and then hit the jump to see the videos.

Possible new stage with all new 'rules' leaked for upcoming Super Smash Bros.

Today this image was posted on the Super Smash Bros. Facebook page. It is accompanied by the caption, "Kirby's going for a ride in a mine cart. Well, this situation looks familiar. This stage has some rules that are rare for the Smash Bros. series."

Nintendo and mine carts usually sends our memories straight back to Donkey Kong Country but with Nintendo's entire catalog at their disposal, this really could be a reference to anything. Perhaps even more enticing is the hint at some new mechanic for this stage.

It begs questions as to whether this "mine cart" stage will be a regular fighting environment or rather a bonus stage/mini game?

Super Smash Bros. Melee on Oculus Rift looks and sounds amazing

Last week, we here at EventHubs posted a video that showed what Super Smash Bros. might look like if it were a first-person style fighter. Although this was simply an awesome, unplayable cinematic, one writer at The Verge was actually given a first-person-esque Super Smash Bros. Melee experience using the Oculus Rift.

This seemingly impossible feat became reality by way of the Dolphin emulator -- that which allows users to play their favorite GameCube and Wii games on PC or Mac. The open source software is fairly flexible, and is even capable of being programmed to support virtual reality hardware, which is exactly what Scott Kellum -- Vox Media's senior front-end designer -- did.

According to The Verge's article, simple in-game components that we don't pay too much mind -- such as the character select screen -- become incredible visual wonders when using the Oculus Rift. The "choose your fighter" menu is described as "a giant IMAX screen floating in midair," and the virtual reality hardware grants users the ability to examine it from a variety of different angles.

Although the write-up doesn't shed to much light on the actual gameplay experience, we are provided with an animated GIF of what Melee looks like when played using Oculus.

Smug 'downloads' XBL's #12 El Fuerte player after 1 round, Poongko walks all over E. Honda, Ninomae Hugo's LP FADC shenanigan - USF4 replays

Today we've got another batch of excellent Ultra Street Fighter 4 ranked match replays for you.

First up to bat in this in this USF4 replay round-up is a match between PIE|Smug (Dudley) and iPeru, the #12 El Fuerte on the Xbox Live ranked match leaderboards. At first Smug struggles to keep up with El Fuerte's antics. But only after one round, Smug figures his opponent out, and starts laying the smackdown convincingly.

The next match we have for you today sees Poongko, The Machine, walk all over an E. Honda player online; lots of dive kicks and instant overheads galore. Lots of tricky Seth antics on display here. There's even a moment where The Machine walks right up to his opponent, and throws out a seemingly random dragon punch.

Other players featured in this round-up include Japan's Ninomae (top Rose player, who has picked Hugo here; watch out for his LP FADC shenanigan), and Vivi, whose Chun-Li is known for consistently landing combos over 20 hits.

Rage Arts in Tekken 7 are not fully invincible, can be beaten by low attacks - location test highlights montage from Level Up Your Game

One of the common misconceptions that fighting game fans have conceived, upon seeing the new Rage Arts super moves in motion from the Tekken 7 alpha location test is that it's a fully invincible attack that you can simply throw out to counter your opponent's move for big damage.

That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, as this Tekken 7 highlights montage from the folks over at Level Up Your Game shows, Rage Arts behave like Power Crush attacks in Tekken 7. That is, it is a super armored move (will take damage from incoming attacks), and that it can be beaten by low attacks.

You'll see that in two instances in the highlights montage below. Also featured in this montage are Xiaoyu and Steve's Rage Arts supers, which were not included in the previous compilation we posted.

For more Tekken 7 location test action, make sure to tune in to the official stream later today, starting at around 8.30PM PST.
