Looks like Infiltration is trying his hand at playing Urien, he's already got a slick double taunt combo

Seonwoo Lee, more commonly known in the fighting game community as RZR|Infiltration, is known for being a bit of a multi-character extraordinaire. In Street Fighter 4, he played characters such as Akuma, Juri, and even had a strong Hakan in his back pocket.

In Street Fighter 5, things are starting to look fairly similar for Infiltration. We already know he's got a devastating Nash, and we've seen him dabble in a variety of other characters. Now, it looks like's hitting the lab with Urien.

Earlier today, Lee uploaded a quick clip on Twitter showing a slick double taunt combo from Street Fighter 5's new character.

Urien is an extremely offensive character with the ability to mix up his opponents and deal tons of damage in short order. We hope to see Infiltration stick with the Third Strike fighter, and please, Infiltration, perform that combo in tournament.

Best of III has been cancelled; take a look back at the cast's favorite awkward, hilarious and heartwarming moments over the show's lifespan

The FGC was a bit shocked during Tuesdays' Best of III broadcast when host Efren Salinas announced that this would be the program's final airing.

While there are a handful of other regular FGC shows that discuss community news, BOIII was, in many ways, one of a kind. The varying perspectives brought in by Efren, Mike "Danke" Schiller, Steve "AceKingOffsuit" Jurek and myself almost always made for a colorful and well rounded analyses of the fighting game eSports climate.

Since the show has been cancelled, I went ahead and asked my fellow BOIII faces for their favorite or most memorable moments in the show's history. The best place to start, strangely enough, seems to be at the very end. Below you'll see the final moments of the final episode of Best of III.

Urien's V-Trigger deflects most multi-hitting projectiles in Street Fighter 5, even some Critical Arts

Updated: It has come to our attention that Aegis Reflector actually gets beaten by Guile and Urien's Critical Art. In the example below, Urien is standing just outside of the Sonic Hurricane hitbox. We apologize for the misinformation.

Fans continue to make discoveries about Street Fighter 5's newest DLC fighter, Urien.

One recent development involves his V-Trigger. Something that players might not be aware of is, Urien's Aegis Reflector actually ignores projectile durability in Street Fighter 5.

What this means is, the V-Trigger will reflect any projectile it comes into contact with, regardless of how many hits it dishes out. This means EX fireballs and even Critical Arts are susceptible to being deflected with just one Urien mirror.

OlafRedland shared a couple of clips on Twitter that give us a closer look at what the reflector does when it comes into contact with certain moves.

Street Fighter 5's new security measures removed, PC players can now access the September update

Updated: The official Street Fighter Twitter account has announced that the PC version rollback process is complete. Players can now access the September update as it was before the new security measures were implemented.

Earlier: Due to various concerns raised about the security measures put in place with the recent Sept. 22nd update to Street Fighter 5, Capcom has decided to remove those changes they made to the PC version of the game.

The additional content, like Urien, will still be available, but a timeline wasn't given yet when this rollback would take place.

These security measures were put in place on the PC version of SF5 to prevent users from hacking various aspects of the game.

"We are in the process of rolling back the security measures added to the PC version of Street Fighter 5," Capcom wrote on Twitter.

Content creators are wasting no time coming up with intricate set ups and combos for Street Fighter 5's newest DLC character, Urien.

izumojinX put together an outstanding compilation of combos that aim to push the boundaries of what Urien can do, and we're convinced.

It should be noted that these were performed using tool assistance, however, they show off some very interesting techniques that may spark ideas for styling on your opponent. Watch as Rashid has his own V-Trigger tornado turned on him to add a bit more flare to Urien's Aegis combo.

Who needs Aegis Reflector? Urien's Critical Art has the capability to hit on the ground

Over the course of Street Fighter 5's first season of DLC, with each character release, the floodgates open and the players rush to find any sort of tech that will give them the upper hand, and Urien's release has certainly been no different.

This time around we have something that UncleBibby stumbled across that shows that Aegis Reflector isn't the only thing that Urien can follow up his throw with.

If the opponent chooses not to either quick rise, or tech roll, Urien is free to hit his opponent with his critical art while they're still on the ground.

You can check out the footage for yourself after the jump.

New anti-hacking measures cause issues for PC players, Capcom blog offers workaround

As you may know, yesterday's update to Street Fighter 5 came with some anti-cheat measures. Seeing Capcom take steps to prevent people from cheating should come as no surprise, but unfortunately those steps left a portion of the PC playerbase unable to load the game.

The new patch introduced a driver intending to prevent the game from being hacked while offline through a "handshake" feature that requires players to click-confirm each time they load the game. For some, this new driver breaks the game.

According to the Capcom Unity blog, the new anti-cheat system prevents memory access in certain ways, and is possibly creating a false positive with antivirus software, or Windows Defender.

Clothing is optional for the vice president of the Illuminati - brilliant easter egg has Urien's Third Strike costume hidden inside

Fans of Urien's Third Strike threads should be excited to know that suits are completely optional in Street Fighter 5. In a nod to the classic game, Capcom slipped in an easter egg that gives Urien an alternate intro.

If you're holding the light punch, medium kick, and heavy punch buttons while the match is loading, Urien blows his suit away as he comes to meet his opponent. This trick works no matter which of Urien's costumes you select:

It's definitely interesting to see Capcom give Urien an alternate introduction; he certainly stands out as a character, and a fun addition like this can only add to the hype.
