Tiers for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Next wave of changes will be final for Ultra Street Fighter 4, Capcom still taking feedback on crucial issues

Capcom is nearing the finish line for the balancing process of Ultra Street Fighter 4. During Hypespotting, David "Dawgtanian" Hinds briefly spoke about how things have been shaping up for the game in the final months of development.

Hinds was asked about which changes are in store for fans, but he didn't want to guess at which alterations would make it in.

"There's still more changes to come, but I don't want to speculate in case any of the ones I mentioned don't eventually make it into the final game," he said.

"Just keep an eye out for the next wave of changes, these will be the final ones," Hinds noted.

That doesn't mean Capcom is done taking suggestions from the fans, though. Hit the break to continue reading.

Nester shows up on Smash Bros. website as April Fool's joke, screen shots included

It's that time of year again, and April Fool's jokes are already being spread around the interwebs.

Nester showed up on a website spoofing the official Super Smash Bros. site, to make it look like he'd be the next character added to the roster.

Nester was the comic strip star/mascot for the now defunct Nintendo Power magazine, and the fake Smash Bros. website runners even saw fit to create a rough model and take some screen shots of him in-game.

Walter White does his best Akuma impression in this Breaking Bad vs. Street Fighter original animation

Showing his love for two franchises, and figuring out a very creative way to combine both of them, Junior Jesman created an original animation featuring Ryu from Street Fighter and Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad.

This short skit is full of tons of awesome homages to the show, so if you're a fan of cartoon-styled mash-ups, you'll probably dig this.

The clip is just a hair over a minute long, and look out for various cameos from SF cast members as well.

Just how good is Daigo's Zangief in SSF4 AE v2012? Should Snake Eyez fear The Beast? Well...

Snake Eyez, you've just been put on notice... well, not really.

As part of the promotions for the new SSF4 CR pachinko machine, MCZ|Daigo participated in a short SSF4 AE v2012 exhibition with RZR|Fuudo.

The catch is both players selected characters they had never used in a tournament before, Zangief for Daigo and Chun-Li for Fuudo.

While both player's fundamental skills are on display here, you can see there's a reason or two why they've never selected these characters in a tournament before.

Still, this is a good chance to see two of the best play around with a few fighters they're not known for using. You can find the footage after the break.

Whether on hit or block, many do not know these moves can be punished by 2 frame attacks in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012

Because there are so very few moves in the Street Fighter 4 series with 2 frames of start up, many people don't realize that certain attacks are punishable on block — or hit.

ShoryuSengan's latest clip looks at many commonly used attacks that are often thought to be safe on block, and shows that they can be punished with a 2-frame move, in this case, Ken's super.

He also shows that Dudley and Gouken can punish many of these same attacks with their supers as well.

Mike Tyson is the living embodiment of Balrog: Watch him K.O. opponents with devastating punches and Street Fighter 2 sound effects

As many know, Balrog's initial Street Fighter 2 design was based off of legendary professional boxer, Mike Tyson. In Japan, the name of Street Fighter's powerful pugilist is actually M. Bison (Mike Bison), but when the game came stateside, it had to be switched up in order to avoid any legal complications.

Well, a YouTube user named Vogey created a video that brings the two together in a glorious fashion. Combining clips of actual Mike Tyson boxing matches with Street Fighter 2 sound effects, we now get to see what Capcom may have had in mind when designing Balrog.

This video has four minutes of Tyson match footage, and is getting so popular that Mike Tyson himself actually posted it on Twitter.

You'll find the video after the break, and feel free to tell us what you think of it in the comments section below.
