Super Smash Bros. 4 undergoing scheduled maintenance today, online modes unavailable for a few hours

This a public service announcement from your friends here at EventHubs. Super Smash Bros. 4 will be going offline for a few hours later today.

The tightest links in Street Fighter 5 will be three frames; Vesper fills us in on everything we need to know for the SF5 beta

We're about a week and a half away from the Street Fighter 5 online beta, and Vesper Arcade has prepared a video laying out just about everything we'll need to know going in.

Vesper breaks down SF5 into bite-size pieces so you can easily tackle individual concepts as you prepare for your online rampage. For instance, there is a two frame leniency window for all the combos in the game, meaning much easier combos than in Street Fighter 4.

We also learn the ins and outs of V-Triggers, V-Skills, wake up game, Crush Counter and plenty more. If you're looking to get into fighting shape for the upcoming beta, look no further than this video.

President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata passes away at 55

It's with a very heavy heart we bring you the news of the passing of Nintendo's President, Mr. Satoru Iwata.

Nintendo has released a statement stating:

Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth.

Iwata became the director of Nintendo back in 2000, and just two years later, succeeded Hiroshi Yamauchi as the fourth President of the company. Iwata had a humongous role in spreading countless hours of fun and enjoyment for gamers across the nations.

Iwata and Sakurai shared ideas for the original Smash and built a prototype without Nintendo characters. Iwata was also involved in titles such as Earthbound, Kirby, and Balloon Fight.

We wish all the best for his surviving family members, which, I think is fair to say, includes gamers around the world.

Ernesto Lopez loses his mind and his underwear when he discovers Ken in Street Fighter 5

You know those times in life where you're simultaneously hot, cold, angry, sad, upset and jubilant? Such was the case for comedic YouTuber Ernesto Lopez Jr. when Ken was revealed for Street Fighter 5.

In his latest comedic endeavor, Ernesto records his reactions to the Ken reveal trailer. The finished product is hilariously accurate, though perhaps a bit hyperbolic.

The comedy comes from the spot-on interpretation of the masses as they tend to lose their minds in the first few minutes of a reveal such as Ken's joining of the Street Fighter 5 cast, and then shift to a completely nonchalant attitude seemingly moments later.

Combos into V-Trigger and a dive kick-like Tatsu? Gritty Urban Saga offers his analysis of the Ken reveal trailer for Street Fighter 5

Just two days ago, Ken was revealed as the latest character in the upcoming Street Fighter 5. Though all we've seen thus far is a short trailer, the community is already hard at work analyzing the character.

Gritty Urban Saga has created an analysis video from the trailer reveal at Comic Con. In it, he takes a close look at Ken's moves and how they seem to work within the game.

One of the more interesting observations, it seems as though Ken's Tatsu works almost like a dive kick when done from the air. It seems to travel at a fairly steep, downward angle, and the EX version looks like it pops Ken's opponent up in the air for additional combo potential.

Also, it looks like Ken may be able to cancel into his V-Trigger mid combo, and continue said combo with enhanced specials. If this is indeed the case, Ken will likely be an incredibly offensive character in SF5.
