'Zangief was one of the worst characters in AE v2012, by far; sometimes he feels too strong in USF4' - EventHubs exclusive interview with veggey

Last weekend, DreamHack Stockholm happened, and Norwegian top players made a splash. While 1st and 2nd places went to European superstars MD|Luffy and DIG|Ryan Hart, respectively, 3rd and 4th place were claimed by BX3|veggey and BX3|Phenom, who have both been tearing it up in the European scene for a long time now.

In light of their continued high placings, we decided to reach out for interviews with both of them, and first up is the grappler of the North, Mr. Vegard "veggey" Kopangen Bugge himself. Below, you'll find a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: For how long have you been playing fighting games, and what was it that made you start?

Veggey: I've been playing since the summer of 2009. It started with a friend of mine, who said that I should buy Street Fighter 4, but I was like "No, fighters are crap". Then I said, "Okay, if your girlfriend can guess what number I am thinking of between 1-10, I'll buy it". She guessed 7, and I thought of 7, so I had to buy it. The mind games started before I even got the game! She would probably be godlike with El Fuerte, right? No...

You can find the rest of the interview below.

Juri and Cammy's Summer Vacation outfits, MvC2 heroes destroy Sentinel, and more - Edwin Huang's fighting game artwork

We have featured UDON's Edwin Huang here on EventHubs before, but his artwork is so great that we feel one good turn deserves another. So today we have an assortment of great pieces from Edwin that range from fully colored products to commission work.

Right off the bat, what stands out to us is Huang's depiction of both Juri and Cammy's Ultra Street Fighter 4 Summer Vacation costumes. It isn't often that we see artwork displaying in-game alternate outfits, so this is a refreshing take on the two Street Fighter femme fatales.

Also included here are pieces showing some of the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 heroes (and Nightcrawler) in action, Hokuto from the Street Fighter EX series, and more.

Click each image below for a closer look, and let us know which are your favorites.

Yoshi is a top-tier character in Super Smash Bros. 3DS too, according to Japan's SHI-Gaming group - tier charts from A to E

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launches in North America tomorrow. Soon, you'll be able to finally get your hands on a retail copy of Nintendo's highly-anticipated fighter, as well as input your thoughts on the game's characters right here on EventHubs's very own tiers section for the game (we're planning on launching a section for Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U very soon).

Until then, however, early tier lists for the game from Japan have served as a pretty good point of reference thus far. And yesterday, another such list has been published on the Web -- this time from SHI-Gaming (which is short for Shinonome Gaming), a notable band of Smash Bros. streamers in Japan who also hold tournaments at various venues all over Japan. These guys certainly know a thing or two about putting together a solid tier list.

While most of the characters on this list are in more or less the same tier positions as they were on other lists supplied by Japanese fans, there are still a few surprises here. For instance, SHI-Gaming named Yoshi as one of three top-tier characters in the game -- and that's the first time I've seen anyone suggest that for Mario's dinosaur pal.

But the surprises do not stop there. Check out the full tier list below.

Air & Dunhill locked in a fireball war, Poongko styling on KSK, Daigo gets rushed down - USF4 ranked matche also ft. Luffy, Infiltration

This morning we have a mighty fine selection of Ultra Street Fighter 4 ranked match videos for your viewing pleasure.

Kicking things off is an intense match between CCG|Air and Japan's Dunhill, which has been made possible now that CCG|Air is currently living in Japan for a little while as he undergoes training. Dunhill may be playing Dee Jay in this match, against Air's Ryu, but when it comes to zoning, he Dunhill's Dee Jay sure is a tough nut to crack.

Other matches in this highlight include a Poongko (Seth) Vs. KSK (Oni) one where we get to see The Machine get stylish with his combos; a match where MCZ|Daigo finds himself cornered by an online Yang player; a Rose mirror-match featuring MD|Luffy; and a match in which Infiltration shows us why you shouldn't be too eager to focus punish a Stinger knife attack.

Quan Chi is the latest Mortal Kombat X character reveal; video shows Sorcerer, Warlock, and Summoner variations

Just like NetherRealm Studios's Ed Boon teased yesterday, a new character reveal for Mortal Kombat X is due together -- and it's not other than the series's devious sorcerer Quan Chi.

As with all characters on the Mortal Kombat X roster, there will be three playable variations of Quan Chi: Sorcerer, Warlock, and Summoner.

Sorcerer Quan Chi has access to projectile spells (image #2 below), as well as buffs that he can cast to power them up. He also has access to debuff spells that can weaker his opponent.

Warlock Quan Chi does not appear to possess projectiles -- but he doesn't need them. This variation can open interdimensional dark portals that let him grab an opponent from afar, among other cool uses (images #3 to #5).

Finally, Summoner Quan Chi can conjure demonic beasts (image #6 below) to aid him in combat.

Along with the character reveal comes a trailer that shows all three of Quan Chi's variations in Mortal Kombat X. Check it out below.

Poison's corner fireball loop deals 562 damage without Ultra, reversals lose to HP fireball after reset - USF4 tech for Hugo's sassy manager

Looking to improve your Poison game in Ultra Street Fighter 4? Well, today is your lucky day.

FGA|Mono recently sent us a compilation of useful tech that every Poison player should take the time to practice and add to their arsenal. The video is jam-packed with over 7 minutes of different combos, resets, mix-ups, and more.

Right at the start of the video, we get to see an EX fireball loop used on Rufus in the corner that deals 562 damage without the use of Ultra. The loop can be replicated after landing an overhead for 428 damage, making this a great way to put the hurt on your opponent after hitting them with a quick strike.

Additionally, this video shows a myriad of ways to make opponents' reversal attacks null after clobbering them with an EX Rekka reset. In one scenario, Poison throws a HP fireball after a reset on Cody, to which he attempts an Ultra 2. Even though she gets hit by the first part of the Ultra (the dust), Poison's HP fireball manages to catch Cody anyway, hitting him out of the big-damage comeback move.

There is much to be learned in this compilation, so be sure to check out this excellent Ultra Street Fighter 4 Poison tech after the break.

Daigo on the 2 opponents he'd least like to face at Capcom Cup 2014, if he qualifies (1 of them is the EVO champ) - EventHubs interviews The Beast

During the Tokyo Game Show weekend, we met and caught up with MCZ|Daigo right after the Mad Catz TGS Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament concluded.

There wasn't a whole lot of time to talk, but we got to ask Daigo about why these days he's dashing in on his opponent after a knockdown a lot more often (as opposed to going for a safe jump setup), what he thinks about CCG|Air's assessment of Evil Ryu's bad match-ups, afterthoughts on his exhibition match against BE|Nemo, as well as who he'd least like to face at Capcom Cup 2014, should he manages to qualify -- which he stands a good chance at.

Check out our interview with Daigo 'The Beast' Umehara below.

New Mortal Kombat X reveal coming tomorrow morning? Ed Boon drops several hints at Fatality and/or character announcement

The cantankerous Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios is at it again.

Over the past few days, the Mortal Kombat creator has taken to his official Twitter account in order to drop several hints at potential Mortal Kombat X reveals. The first two hints come in the form of very cryptic images. The picture on the left shows a close up view of someone's eyes, hidden in the shadows, with a ball of green energy up front and center. This image was coupled with a message that read, "What day does the internets do its Throwback thingy? Hmmm...?"

The image on the right is labeled with the word "Throwback" on the bottom right corner, and shows a silhouette of a person standing in a field next to what appears to be a palm tree. What these two hints have in common is their "throwback" theme, which we can safely assume refers to Throwback Thursday -- the popular internet trend in which people share photos of themselves or things from their past on social media.

Xian's Poison brings the hype against GamerBee in the Saigon Cup's FT5 Grand Finals set, don't miss this incredible long set between masters

At first, this set looks like a match from the RZR|Xian we're used to seeing, where he uses his signature character Gen, who he won EVO 2013 with, but before long, he decides to change his strategy up against AvM|GamerBee, and goes over to his new flame, Poison.

While RZR|Xian has definitely played Poison publicly before, this is a really good set to show what the character is capable of, as he goes up against AvM|GamerBee, one of the world's best, who is using his main character Adon, and making one hell of a match out of it.

At Saigon Cup, the Grand Finals were played as a FT5 set, with RZR|Xian on the winner's side, and AvM|GamerBee on the loser's side. Hit the jump to check out the action.

Sako reacts to point-blank fireball with Super, shows more lethal corner mix-ups - Elena looks even more devastating in these USF4 Endless matches

A set of Ultra Street Fighter 4 Endless matches featuring HORI|Sako and a Chun-Li player named Coijro recently made their way on to the internet.

If you're an aspiring Elena player, or just a fan of Sako's play-style, then you're in luck. This compilation of matches does a great job of showing what the Capoeira master is capable of.

Not only will you witness a series of devastating corner mix-ups that can prove useful in any Elena player's arsenal, but there are other hype moments to be seen here, such as the point-blank punish of fireball using Super.

Cojiro also pulls off a number of useful anti-Elena techniques, like punishing blocked Lynx Tail with Ultra 1.

Below you will find both the original Nico upload and a YouTube version for those who may have trouble viewing the former.
