Ultra Street Fighter 4 official release is only a couple of months away, and in order to bring everyone up to speed, USGamer put together an article that recaps everything you'd need to know about Ultra so far. Additionally, the publication managed to get opinions about the upcoming SF4 series update from two of the fighting game community's best: EG|Justin Wong and Eduardo "EG|PR Balrog" Perez.

When on the subject of character choice, both Evil Geniuses expressed that they have an interest in learning Elena once Ultra drops. Justin went on to say that he feels Elena will "compensate for a lot of [Rufus'] bad matchups for my particular play-style."

PR 'Rog is looking forward to trying out Elena as well, but he also noted interest in Decapre, Ultra Street Fighter 4's 5th character. According to 'Rog, he was quite impressed by the reveal trailer at Final Round 17, and may want to give her a go once the game is released.

Ryan Hart: Decapre is not a Cammy clone, she adds new elements and possibilities to Street Fighter

There are not many people who have had experience against Decapre in Ultra Street Fighter 4, but after winning Final Round 17, Ryan Hart got time against the newly announced fighter, controlled by Capcom's Peter Rosas.

Hart took to the blogosphere after the exhibition and shared some thoughts about the character, notably saying she's not a Cammy clone and she adds new elements and possibilities to Street Fighter.

"[Her] mid-air teleport almost felt Marvel-like in the way she could just be on top of you then still have the Psycho Stream (ultra-fireball) chasing me down," Hart wrote.

On the subject of her Scramble attack, which has been mentioned by the developers many times as her signature move, Hart said that the follow up ground pound can hit on either side.

"It appeared her ground pound could land in front or behind, it would be interesting to test this out a bit more. I'm hoping it doesn't become another rinse and repeat move similar to Viper’s flame kick now," he said.

Capcom cuts profit forecast by 51.5% for fiscal year, 'special loss' primarily due to mobile business

Capcom cut their profit forecast by 51.5% for the fiscal year, ending on March 31, 2014 (yesterday).

The company had previously expected to post a profit of 6.8 billion yen (about $66 million USD) but is now anticipating a net income of 3.3 billion yen (about $31.9 million USD), which is a considerable drop from their forecasted earnings.

The company is obviously still making money, although they're making less of it than previously anticipated.

The alteration to their profit forecast was blamed primarily on the mobile market, as those aspects of their business "have not yet started to produce benefits."

In more positive news, Capcom saw an increase of 4.6% in net sales forecast, attributing the performance gains to Monster Hunter 4, and a slot-machine game Monster Hunter Gekka Raimei.

The company expects things to turn around primarily due to the launch of major titles.

OMH: Oni may be a top 10 character; he has few bad matchups - UK's best Oni player talks Hypespotting 3, only losing to Ryan Hart at the event, & more

This past weekend, SFO|OverMostHeads, known as the UK's best Oni player, competed in the Hypespotting 3 major tournament in Glasgow, Scotland. Though this happened to be his first real major tournament, he managed to score a 3rd place victory, and only suffered losses to Ryan Hart throughout the entire event, (first being knocked into losers by Hart, then eventually getting eliminated).

EventHubs' UK correspondent Zombie Brian conducted an in-depth interview with OMH, and in this piece we get a bit of the Oni player's back-story, details on his experience as an online warrior, his thoughts on where Oni stacks up against the rest of the cast, and more.

Below is a snippet to get you started. Be sure to read the remainder of the interview after the break.

ZombieBrian: Where about in the UK are you from?

OverMostHeads: Born and raised in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

ZombieBrian: Good scene there?

OverMostHeads: Yes actually. We have SFO (Sunday Face Off) monthly tournaments in Leeds. It is a rapidly expanding scene here with every tournament gaining more and more entrees.

Ken is not Ryu; he has blonde hair and red clothes: Watch as he tries to prove his individuality in Pete Holmes' latest Street Fighter skit

Pete Holmes has once again aired a Street Fighter themed skit on his late-night talk-show, The Pete Holmes Show.

In this comedy bit, Ken tries to prove that he is exactly what the Street Fighter 2 tournament needs. Unfortunately for him, Pete Holmes is quick to point out that Ken shares a few too many similarities with Ryu, who is also already competing in the tournament.

Last week, we saw Dhalsim try to make his way into the Street Fighter 2 tournament, but to no avail. Hit the jump to see if Ken can make a convincing enough case for himself.

It's the year of the clone characters: Skullgirls Encore introduces Fukua, the fully-playable Filia clone

Lab Zero truly does believe in taking an April Fool's joke to the extreme. This year, they have unveiled a "brand new" fighter to the Skullgirls Encore universe: a Filia clone named Fukua.

The trailer released for this new fighter may look eerily familiar, (if you tuned into Final Round 17 last month), and shows off what she is capable of. Although this character has been revealed in jest, the beauty of it all is, she is actually fully playable on PC.

Fukua may reuse some of the animations that Filia has, however, she does have some unique moves and color palettes. Below are some screenshots to get you started.

Another character that doesn't need Red Focus: Desk shows the power of Gen's stance switch parry in SSF4 AE v2012

Combo extraordinaire Desk returns today with a brand new Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 video featuring Gen. This time around, Desk utilizes Gen's ability to "parry" attacks using a focus attack kara cancelled into a stance change.

When this technique is used, Gen can absorb a hit without having to perform the mandatory forward or backdash that most every other character on the roster has to. Because the recovery is so much faster, Gen can absorb multi-hitting attacks, which looks a lot like Ultra Street Fighter 4's Red Focus mechanic.

As expected, Desk shows off some very impressive sequences in this video, but he doesn't stop there. The legendary content creator also uploaded a video tutorial that shows how to perform this Gen technique, complete with examples and a view of his hands for reference.
