Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Hugo's Super completely whiffs on Rose, Cammy, and Chun-Li when confirming from Clap - Ultra Street Fighter 4

Earlier today we were sent a quick Ultra Street Fighter 4 clip that shows off a peculiar occurrence when Hugo tries to confirm his Super after his Clap.

When Hugo goes for his Super on a crouching Rose, Chun-Li, or Cammy, the first hit of the attack is subject to whiffing completely.

For Rose, if Hugo hits any version of his Clap and cancels into Super, she will fall out of the combo. For Cammy and Chun, however, this only happens when Hugo confirms from LP Clap.

The Super will still connect fully if you hit a light punch or light kick before cancelling, but that deals a bit less damage. Still, any Hugo player out there should be very careful when confirming into this attack, as it may leave you open for a big punish and may even cost you the game.

You can check out the clip below.

Harada: Tekken 7 will not have Revolution's fully invincible attacks, Catalina has single-button attack strings geared towards beginners

At Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show booth last week, we caught up with Tekken series Katsuhiro Harada and Tekken Project team member Michael Murray (who is also a producer on Bandai Namco's 2-on-2 fighting game Rise of Incarnates, which is coming out on Steam later this year) right after they announced Catalina for Tekken 7, to find out a little bit more about the new character.

And since the location tests for Tekken 7 were coming out real soon (this weekend), we wanted to see if we could gleam any hints on what's in store for fans in the new game, too.

While Harada and Murray could not reveal a whole lot about the latest Tekken title, even with the location tests coming up so soon, they did their best to tell us as much as they could reveal for now. So take from this interview what you can, and find out with us here on EventHubs later this week on how Tekken 7 will actually play, once the location test have begun.

USF4 video roundup: Daigo Evil Ryu hype moments, Bonchan vs. Kazunoko ft-to-10, Olympic Gaming's Angry Andoryou (Oni/Cammy) player spotlight

There's been quite a few noteworthy video submissions sent in to us over the weekend.

In an attempt to get more fighting game vid makers' efforts recognized, we're going to do a quick Ultra Street Fighter 4 round-up this time.

First up is an MCZ|Daigo Evil Ryu hype moments compilation from the Rush N Kill (RnK) clan. The video contains many of the memorable moments during Daig's recent encounters with AVM|Gamerbee, EG|Momochi, EG|Justin Wong, among others.

It also shows us just exactly how much The Beast loves to abuse Evil Ryu's far standing MK move.

Weird tech: Juri's ground fireball can be punished by aerial grab UCs (Hakan, Zangief, T. Hawk, Hugo) in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Weird but true: Although Juri's Fuhajin fireball release is, for all intents and purposes, a ground-based projectile attack (as opposed to Akuma, Rolento and Ibuki's aerial projectile moves), for a couple of frames during the MK and HK versions of the move, she's actually considered airborne -- and can be punished with aerial grabs accordingly.

So for instance, after blocking the first part of Juri's MK or HK Fuhajin, Hakan can begin buffering the motion for his anti-air Ultra Combo 2 move, and hit the three kick buttons if he sees Juri follow-up with the projectile release part of the move to punish it during the airborne frames.

T. Hawk and Hugo can even punish that move from a distance, as their aerial grab specials and Ultras travel a good distance forward on the way up, as you'll see in EventHubs user TheFlyingGrayson's video below.

Nemo: 'Justin Wong is the one player I respect on a whole other level than the rest' - the accomplished UMvC3 & USF4 player explains why

BE|Nemo is one of the most respected fighting game players today. A great deal of players in the FGC look up to him.

And a whole lot more paid attention to him after his recent win at West Coast Warzone 4 with Rolento, his very narrow defeat at the hands of Filipino Champ in a UMvC3 first-to-20 at the same tournament venue, as well as convincingly beating MCZ|Daigo in a first-to-5 exhibition match last weekend at Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show event.

MCZ|Daigo, of course, also gave huge props to BE|Nemo in his recent Reddit AMA interview.

But even the most respected people in the world must have people that they look up to.

In BE|Nemo's case, there's actually a humongous list of such people he respects, but only one particular person he looks up to on a completely different level from the rest -- Evil Geniuses's Justin Wong.

Capcom's Ayano on why Omega Edition is not being developed as a brand new Street Fighter game, but as a bonus mode for Ultra Street Fighter 4

With new moves for all 44 characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4's playable roster, as well as vastly different properties for many of their existing moves, Omega Edition is quite a departure from previous updates to the SF4 series.

So why did Capcom decide to release Omega Edition as an additional mode for USF4, rather than use the ideas for a completely brand new installment in the Street Fighter franchise instead? Doesn't that sort of betray fan expectations, for those who are eagerly anticipating a brand new title in the Street Fighter franchise?

That's the question had for Capcom's assistant producer for Ultra Street Fighter 4 Tomoaki Ayano, when they caught up with him and USF4 producer Koichi Sugiyama at the sidelines of Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show tournament.

Wario, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt, Rosalina, Greninja, Bowser in top 6; Tokyo's 'Umebura 8' 170-man Super Smash Bros. 3DS tournament results, videos

On September 23, a public holiday in Japan, over 170 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS players gathered at the Edogawa-ku Cultural Center near JR Shin Koiwa station in Tokyo to attend Umebura 8, the latest in a long line of major Smash tournaments dating all the way back from the days of Super Smash Bros. 64.

As the game had just been out in Japan for about two weeks at that point in time, the single-elimination tournament was held with its own set of competitive rule set that's partially based on Nintendo's official For Glory rules: Stock Battle with no time limit, 2 stocks per player, in a best-of-3 matches format.

After a series of grueling battles, Umebura 8 reached its climax with Wario, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt, Rosalina, Greninja, Bowser players in the top 6. This list matches up with the characters we previously reported were seen as the top tier contenders for this still-very-new game in Japan -- so no surprises there.

Find out which character specialists came in at which placings, and watch their intense matches in the archived videos below.

New Super Smash Bros. 3DS bug: Yoshi's 'Egg Lay' neutral B move can supersize opponents over and over

A new and fairly odd bug in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has been discovered this weekend.

In the Kumite mode for Super Smash Bros. 3DS where you fight an endless number of weak CPU opponents, occasionally a supersized version of a character from the roster would drop in as a mini-boss.

If, at this point, you're playing in Kumite mode with Yoshi, it appears that by simply performing the Egg Lay neutral B special move on said supersized opponent, you could end up making the opponent grow even larger in size.

While it's not a major bug that could potentially ruin the game's competitive scene (since it only works in Kumite mode), you could say that the bug is certainly one that "blows things out of proportion" -- as you can see in the banner image for this story, as well as the video below.

Oni's electric fireball, Raging Demon, then UC2 works as a combo? Evil Ryu's hurricane kick into UC2? LiangHuBBB's latest USF4 compilation

With the recent announcement of Omega Edition coming out as free DLC for Ultra Street Fighter 4, popular fighting game video compilations maker LiangHuBBB has been inspired to put together a series of '30 ways to combo into Ultra' videos featuring for all 44 characters in the game's roster -- both their regular versions and Omega Edition counterparts.

That's a total of 60 cool and funny ways to combo into their UC1/UC2 for each character. It's quite the undertaking, and will certainly take some time to complete (if the series ever gets finished... this seems like a massive undertaking).

In the meantime, to get our appetites all whet up for what's to come, LiangHuBBB has put together a brief preview of what the series is all about, featuring clips of some of the rarest UC combos to have ever been performed in real matches.

Some of the cooler combos include Evil Ryu connecting with UC2 after a hurricane kick, Oni super cancelling out of his electric fireball special move and following that up with his UC2, a Yang Super into Ultra combo, and more.

Mike Ross finally jumps on the Decapre bandwagon in Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross ft. K-Brad Ep. 33

It's finally happened. In spite of many of his fans requesting for Mike "Mike Ross" Ross to drop E. Honda for Decapre, including three members of the EventHubs team, everyone's favorite low-tier hero and Twitch employee has firmly ignored all the pleas for him to get on the Decapre bandwagon -- until now.

In episode 33 of Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross ft. K-Brad, which has just gone live today on the Cross Counter TV YouTube channel, Evil Geniuses's Kenneth 'K-Brad' Bradley has finally managed to bring Mike Ross into the dark side, converting him into a Decapre player through the use of... hypnotism?

Find out what that's all about in the latest episode of Ultra Excellent Adventures, embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
