Happy birthday to the Street Fighter poster child: Ryu turns 50 today

We have had a number of readers write in to inform us that today is a very special day in the Street Fighter universe.

The wandering warrior and Street Fighter poster child, Ryu, celebrates his 50th birthday today. Now I know that many of your are thinking, "but DreamKing, Street Fighter has only been around since 1987!"

Although you are correct in stating that fact, Ryu's bio from the Super Nintendo port of Street Fighter 2 indicates that he was actually born on July 21, 1964.

Tekken 7's PC release possibly leaked by Amazon

Today an image has been floating around of Amazon.co.uk showing Tekken 7 listed for PC release. While the image itself looks fairly legitimate and has been reported on by a number of news sources, it should be noted that when we were unable to locate the product on Europe's Amazon. Also, the image leaves out the exact web address, instead displaying only a lowercase "tekken 7" in the search bar.

Nonetheless, here's the original image making its rounds around Twitter to help you decide whether it's another major hint or simply a grab for attention.

Poison can completely avoid low attacks by simply rising from a crouch state in USF4; grants her instant, full punishes

Updated: Capcom's Peter Rosas has informed us that they are aware of the problem and that a fix for it will be included in the upcoming patch.

In a bizarre glitch uncovered by Japanese player Ukeuked, Ryu's normally timed sweep can be seen whiffing entirely on Poison when she rises from a crouch. While this alone would be significant, Eventhubs's own DreamKing has discovered that a decent amount of the cast's low attacks are utterly useless on Poison after a neutral stand.

In order to perform this glitch, all you have to do is rise from a crouching state. During Poison's transition from crouching to standing, low attacks seem to whiff entirely allowing her to score an instant, full punish (if timed correctly.)

Check below to see the original GIF of Ryu's whiff and a list of confirmed attacks the glitch neutralizes.

Street Fighter 4 Producer Yoshinori Ono will be at San Diego Comic-Con – 'May be a surprise or two'

A recent tweet from Ultra Street Fighter 4 producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed he will be at San Diego Comic-Con. Furthermore, the link he provides to Capcom's event page shows both a Street Fighter focused panel along with a general Capcom panel and signing.

While Yoshinori Ono has a reputation for hints, the fact that an hour long Street Fighter panel guest-starring Ono-san has been slated for the convention is bound to draw some attention. Not only that, but Capcom-Unity's website has mentioned there may be a surprise or two in store.

Check below to find out more about Capcom at San Diego Comic-Con along with the schedule for relevant events.

Fan-made trailer: Rhythm Heaven's Glee Club chorus kids join Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS in this awesome animated video

Kimmotman recently put together an awesome, fan-made trailer for three characters (counting as one character slot) that many fans are hoping will still make it into Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS.

Rhythm Heaven's Glee Club chorus kids enter the fray, and this short, animated video does a great job of introducing them.

Although this trailer is short and sweet, it is incredibly well made and in my opinion could pass for the actual reveal trailer if these fighters are in fact introduced into the Smash Bros. universe.

Editor's note: I'd like to point out once more that this is not an official announcement trailer and merely a fan-made project. Check it out below and let us know what you think!

An exceptional read countered by one amazing backdash: Luffy narrowly escapes Eita's ultra 2 in this animated GIF from EVO 2014

Throughout EVO 2014 there were a multitude of matches played and more hype moments/top level tactics than we could even begin to count. An animated GIF was recently sent to us that perfectly captured one of these moments from the Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament at the event.

Eita (Akuma) and MD|Luffy (Rose) went head-to-head in a top 32 match on stream, and during the second round the former made an exceptional read on the Rose player, predicting his EX Soul Spiral on wake up.

Teleporting backward and cancelling into Akuma's ultra 2 seemed to be the best answer, but Luffy was able to recover from the whiffed attack just in the nick of time, and escape with a perfectly timed backdash.

This is just one of those plays that may have slipped through the cracks during the chaotic EVO weekend, but definitely deserves to be witnessed by anyone interested. What do you think of this great escape? Let us know in the comments below.

'Europe lacks the competition that America offers; it's a HUGE disadvantage for me' - Armada on SSBM, SSB4 and more in EventHubs' exclusive interview

With EVO 2014 over and done, we took the chance to catch up with Super Smash Bros. Melee 3rd placer, Empire Arcadia's very own Armada, who has also remained one of the most consistent players, counted among the so-called "big 5" of Super Smash Bros. Melee, alongside two-time EVO champion C9|Mango, EVO runner-up Crs|Hungrybox, APEX 2014 champion EG|PPMD and fellow teammate and constant top-placer EMP|Mew2King.

In the interview, Armada touched upon recent tournament results, matchups in the game, and thoughts on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. 4. Below, you'll find a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: It's no secret that in the Melee scene, there are five players considered a cut above the rest - C9|Mango, Crs|Hungrybox, EG|PPMD, EMP|Mew2King and yourself, and it's been like this for a very long time. Despite this, you faced difficulties against fellow Swedish player Leffen at both BEAST 2 and Republic of Fighters 3 earlier this year.

After your losses, you returned in full force and went on a massive tear at several US tournaments, most notably winning CEO 2014, placing second at MLG: Anaheim and getting a strong third place just recently at EVO 2014. Do you feel as if you have any issues playing against Leffen specifically, or do you feel as if you were simply going through a rough patch at the time?

EMP|Armada: A lot of people still don't want to accept the fact that I barely played Melee at all in 2013. When I did, I never touched my PEach either, because I had no will to play the game. Leffen is also an extremely good player, and we have played in a lot of tournaments over the years.

When it comes to the Peach matchup, I do believe that he is insanely good, which of course makes it hard for me to play against him. So if we include him being very good at the game, and in that specific matchup, and also me having a long break, I think the result was understandable. We haven't played since Republic of Fighters, but I'm confident that our next set would be great.

The good folks over at Cross Counter have uploaded the latest installment of Ultra Excellent Adventures.

Marking the 23rd episode in the series, Gootecks, Mike Ross, and Maximilian continue to battle any online opponent that crosses their path.

Today the boys come across Xbox Live's #3 Sakura who they suspect is none other than the SoCal sensation, Alex Myers. The gamertag he is playing under, "SakDaddyMyers," could mean he is simply an impostor, however.
