A 7 second Perfect at a major! Noel Brown and Demon Hyo take part in quite possibly the shortest UMvC3 tournament set we've ever seen

Summer Jam 8, as well as Shadowloo Showdown V, took place this past weekend, and just like the latter this event had a slew of hype moments that may have slipped through the cracks with all of the action going on.

During the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 portion of the event on finals day, UVG|Noel Brown and AG|Demon Hyo went squared off both using Wolverine on point. In the very first game of the set, Demon Hyo caught Noel's Wolvie and Dr. Doom in an immediate Happy Birthday, and it was all downhill from there.

The first match was over in 7 in-game seconds, and we have the whole thing for you in the GIF below.

The action didn't end there, though, as Hyo proceeded to 3-0 Brown in one of the quickest UMvC3 tournament sets we've ever seen. The entire set clocked in at just around two minutes of actual play (timed from FIGHT! to K.O.)

You can find the whole set below.

Mortal Kombat X's new stamina meter could make zoning characters much less effective

In NetherRealm Studios' previous fighting title, Injustice: Gods Among Us, players of the zoning character archetype were capable of imposing their "keep away" style as much as they saw fit. Fighters such as Deathstoke and Green Arrow -- two characters with incredible zoning tools -- were able to fill the screen with projectiles freely as there was no general game mechanic in Injustice that really put a damper on their attempts. However, that might not be the case in NRS' upcoming next-gen fighter: Mortal Kombat X.

According to an article from a writer over at Destructoid (who recently scored some time with the game), MKX's stamina meter may prevent zoning characters from being as effective as they once were in other fighting titles.

For those unfamiliar, the MK developers have implemented a new stamina meter in their upcoming fighter that gives players the ability to run, dash, and interact with stages. Once this meter fully depletes, these actions are no longer accessible, however, but the meter refills automatically after a short cool down period. Putting a limit on these maneuvers potentially affects zoning in MKX.

"The dash meter alone does much to make hard zoning a much less viable option, as you can't get the necessary distance as fast," the article states.

CD Jr.: 'Sadira sucks in Killer Instinct season 2; they nerfed her too much' - EVO champ feels overall changes are amazing, except his main's

Iron Galaxy Studios and Microsoft unveiled the official change list for Killer Instinct season 2 just last week. The alterations included overall system changes and those being made to the current season 1 roster.

SteamCo|CD Jr. -- the EVO 2014 champion and best Sadira player in the world currently -- sent us a video he drew up that shares his insight on the season 2 tweaks.

The EVO champ discusses each of the system changes first, (using the console build of KI), then moves on to the character-specific. Although CD Jr. is very much pleased with all of the changes made to the overall mechanics and most of the characters, he is quite unhappy with what has been altered for Sadira, his current main character.

"Overall, the changes are good, except you destroyed Sadira," CD Jr. said. "In my opinion, I think she sucks."

Daigo goes wild with hop kicks in an Evil Ryu mirror match and Tokido drastically changes pace in this latest pair of USF4 replays

2014 hasn't been a very successful year for MCZ|Daigo's Evil Ryu. The high risk, high reward character couldn't net Daigo another top 8 appearance at Evolution this year. He seemed to either have been caught up in match-up he either didn't prepare for or one he's historically suffered in.

But how does he handle the Evil Ryu mirror match? One move: hop kicks. Watch as The Beast throws all caution to the wind and decides one attack will beat them all.

Also attached is MCZ|Tokido frustrating his opponent beyond repair by switching suddenly between offense and defense.

GamerBee wins Shadowloo Showdown V with a devastating...counter-hit jab? Check out the final moment of the USF4 grand finals here

Shadowloo Showdown V took place this past weekend, and the Melbourne-based event was jam-packed with enough hype moments to last you 'till the end of the year.

One moment in particular that has people talking took place in the last few seconds of the Ultra Street Fighter 4 grand finals between AvM|Gamerbee and DIG|Ryan Hart.

Gamerbee, using his trademark Adon, was one game away from taking home the gold after defeating Ryan's Sagat 2-0. In an attempt to change the pace of the action Ryan switched to Yun, and in what seemed to be a wise decision took the first round convincingly.

After Gamerbee claimed a round of his own, the two warriors squared up for what was potentially the final round of the whole tournament. That's when this happened...

Gamerbee stuck out a well placed crouching jab after being hit by Ryan's crouching MK - LP Shoulder attack-string and tagged him with a counter-hit, winning the whole thing. This is definitely not the way you'd expect such a large tournament with two of the world's best competitors to end, and even the players themselves were quite surprised. (Refer to this story's banner.)

Chun-Li and Ryu stand on water, Akuma and Decapre fight atop a plane - Ultra Street Fighter 4 stage mod video

Here's a nifty idea: What if Ultra Street Fighter 4's stages were multi-tiered and you could fight on various areas on the stage, rather than the default positions?

Modder Lullius Slitherware was able to make that idea a reality, by modifying the character position X and Y values on a Cheat Editor program.

As the implementation results in quite a few bugs, Lullius currently does not plan on releasing a mod for PC version players to do this easily.

Nevertheless, he's published the following fairly neat video that explores the possibilities of such an idea.
