Filipinoman's tier rankings for Rose in Ultra Street Fighter 4

We continue our top player tier lists today with SoCal's FRQ|Filipinoman and his match ups for Rose. Rose was buffed in this most recent iteration of the SF4 franchise and Filipinoman has certainly shown us she's a force to be reckoned with.

Coming off of an impressive 13th place performance at this year's EVO, Filipinoman has recently risen to the top of the Wednesday Night Fights scene with consistent top 3 placings and multiple tournament victories.

Click on the thumbnail below to head over to the tier list.

With an incredible score of only 2 unfavorable match ups, 19 even and 22 favorable, Filipinoman does not downplay his character in the least. At this point, we feel it's only natural one would look to compare rankings with EVO 2014 champion MD|Luffy which you can conveniently do by clicking the link below in our list of USF4 top player tier rankings.

Duck Hunt, Rosalina, Yoshi, Bowser Jr, Villager - high-level Super Smash Bros. 3DS play at Japan's 'Karisuma' tournament in Nagoya

This morning we've got more Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament footage from Japan for you, this time from a meet-up event in Nagoya. Unlike at KTAR X and the Tokyo Game8 SmaOff events, the Nagoya tournament did not really see any mid or low-tier characters rise to the top.

On the day itself, there were actually two singles tournaments running at the same time, due to too many players showing up. All of the Japanese Smash players present at the event first played in separate pools. Those who came out near the top of the pools then proceeded into singles tournament A, while the rest were sent off into a singles tournament B.

Both tournaments were done single-elimination style, with all matches prior to the semi-finals being played on a best-of-1 basis, while the semi-finals and finals were best-of-3 games. All games were played with 2-stock, 6-minute time limit rules.

Check out some of the replays from the Nagoya tournament below -- these ones feature the characters Duck Hunt, Rosalina, Yoshi, Bowser Jr. Villager.

Japan Ultra Street Fighter 4 Nationals results feat. Daigo, Momochi, Bonchan, Mago, Kyabetsu, Nishikin and more

Update: This story has been updated with final results.

Capcom and Taito's Ultra Street Fighter 4 "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Japan national tournament grand finals is taking place today at the Shinjuku FACE event hall in Tokyo. After two grueling qualifiers in Tokyo and Osaka held back in August, the process has whittled down the scores of top players in Japan to the best 16 for the singles tournament, and the best 8 teams for 3-on-3.

Today we'll find out which of those 16 players will emerge victorious and walk away with a cool 1 million yen (~US$10,000) in cash prizes, as well as an invite to the Capcom Cup in December, since this is a Capcom Pro Tour Premier Event. The winning team in the 3-on-3 tournament will also walk away with 1 million yen.

Meanwhile, the 2nd place winners for both tournaments will receive 100 thousand yen (~US$1,000), and the remainder of top 8 for singles as well as the 3rd and 4th placing teams will all receive 10 thousand yen (~US$100) for their hard work getting this far. So you could say that the stakes are definitely high -- you don't want to be the guy walking away with a hundred bucks or, worse, nothing.

Today's tournament is scheduled to run all the way until about 3AM PST. The 3-on-3 teams tournament will begin first, followed by the singles tournament at around 12 midnight PST.

Catch all of the action in the Isshuu Sengeki Cup Taito Japan national finals right now in the stream embedded below, along with a full tournament schedule and full list of players.

This week in Smash tiers! Current top 10 characters in Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Marth among the best across three games

Last Thursday we here at EventHubs launched our Super Smash Bros. 3DS tiers section. Since its debut, our readers and Smash players alike have provided over 35,000 match-up votes, painting a clearer picture of which fighters are the strongest in Nintendo's handheld title.

Today we take a look at which 10 characters top the tier charts. Now, we're fully aware that this is only a week one list, but if you've been playing the game since it dropped last week (or picked up an early Japanese copy), you'll find that the current top picks definitely have reason for being up there.

Check it out for yourself by hitting the image below.

Click image for SSB 3DS' current top 10

You'll notice that a few familiar, top-tier faces from previous Smash titles have already made their way to the top of the 3DS charts. On that subject, Fire Emblem's Marth has placed in the top 10 across all three Super Smash Bros. titles: 3DS, Brawl, and Melee. As it currently stands, he is the only character to sit among the upper echelon of characters in all three games.

There are, however, more fighters that are in Smash 3DS' top 10 that aren't exactly new to being top tier.

Capcom has revealed today the date and venue details for this year's Capcom Cup.

Slated to be held on Saturday, December 13, at the Warfield Theatre in downtown San Francisco, Capcom Cup 2014 will see 16 of the world's best Ultra Street Fighter 4 players slug it out for the title of World Champion, as well as over $50,000 in cash prizes.

Different ticket tiers for the event will be available. Although details on that will come later, Capcom revealed today that there will be a VIP program tier, limited to 300 tickets, that will include entry to an official after party at the Folsom Street Foundry -- on top of a premium seat at the theatre (which can fit up to 2,300 people), a swag bag, and more.

Other festivities scheduled to take place at the Capcom Cup on December 13 include a live performance by The Megas, Omega Mode exhibition matches, and "special announcements" from Capcom corporate officer Yoshinori Ono (what will he announce -- tell us your best guesses in the comments below).

Dee Jay has a 'Force Stand' move that whiffs on crouching opponents - Bafael reminds us why he's the worst character in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Thanks to an extensive and rigorous balancing process, plus plenty of location testing, Ultra Street Fighter 4 is the most balanced version of Street Fighter 4 yet. There are now plenty of tournament-viable characters in the playable roster.

But then there's also Dee Jay, who at this point is without a doubt one of the worst characters in the game.

Don't get me wrong; there are certainly players who can still win with Dee Jay.

It's just that there's just so many things wrong with the character at this point that it's both sad and funny all at the same time.

Take, for instance, Dee Jay's close standing HP, which is a move that forces stand, but will actually whiff on many crouching characters at point blank distance.

You'll see that and other sad (and funny) examples of why Dee Jay's so bad in this new video from Bafael, embedded below.

Yoshi can teleport to the edge after throwing out air projectiles in Super Smash Bros. 3DS due to a glitch

Either this is a glitch, or Mario's dinosaur pal secretly took Satsui no Hadou lessons from Akuma: When recovering from an edge grab, Yoshi can throw a couple of egg projectiles at his opponent as he jumps back into the fray -- and quickly teleport back to the edge grab position soon after landing.

After seeing some Japanese players pull this off consistently, popular Smash player D1 (also one of the shoutcasters at Nintendo's E3 invitationals) decided to try it out for himself, and came to the realization that the glitch is incredibly easy to do.

In this video, he explains how you too can perform Yoshi's teleportation glitch.

Yang performs a 68-hit combo, Mantis Slashes into LV 2 Focus Crumple; crazy Genei Jin combos with Yun - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

Who needs the EX Red Focus Attack when you've got Mantis Slashes that combo into a Lv 2 Focus Crumple?

Since unlike an EX Red Focus, a regular Lv 2 EX Focus Attack costs only 2 EX bars, you can even do it twice in the same combo -- and that's one of the many feats that cjbqulix has shown here in his latest CMV starring the twins Yun and Yang in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Other cool combos on display here include one that's 68-hits long for Yang, some crazy Genei Jin strings with Yun, meaty Palm combos, and much more.

Diddy Kong and Palutena in the grand finals; highlights from Japan's Game8 SmaOff Tokyo tournament

It's purely a coincidence, but on the same weekend that JTalis -- a Diddy Kong player -- was crowned the champion of the KTAR X Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament in Namuel, New York, the exact same thing was happening to another Diddy Kong player over in Japan.

On October 5 (October 4 in the United States), the Game8 online community in Japan held a Super Smash Bros. 3DS offline meet and tournament in Tokyo, and Gomibako, a Diddy Kong player who got his start into the competitive Smash scene in Japan with Brawl, came in first place.

2nd place went to a Palutena player who goes by the nickname Coral, with Tamanyaso (Lucario) and Ii (Ganondorf) rounding up the top four. The tournament was played in a single-elimination, single match format, with each match being a 2-stock, 7-minute game.

SHI-Gaming (who provided this set of Super Smash Bros. 3DS tier lists prior to the game's official launch in the US) attended the event and was in charge of streaming duties. They've also uploaded some of the matches from the tournament onto their YouTube channel -- check out the matches below.

Should Street Fighter X Tekken receive an update? Is it even worth it at this point? EventHubs Round Table discusses Ono's Famitsu interview

Earlier this week, Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono spoke to Famitsu, saying that an update to Street Fighter X Tekken may actually be possible.

With that in mind, the EventHubs team banded together in order to discuss the Capcom/Bandai Namco crossover fighter. What alterations should be made if an update came to fruition? Is patching the game even worth it at this point? We address all of this and more in our latest Round Table.

Not only that, but in his interview Ono stated that the chances of us seeing a new Darkstalkers title any time soon are extremely slim. But it doesn't hurt to dream! As an added bonus, each of this discussion's participants divulged what they'd most like to see if a fresh game in the series were ever created.

Check out what we have to say below, and as always, please feel free to provide your own answers to these questions in our comments section.
