Mike Ross took Hugo!? Mago selected Yang?!? Highlights of USF4 TGS exhibition between these two competitors

Mike Ross and MCZ|Mago had an entertaining first to 5 exhibition yesterday in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and we wanted to look back at some of the highlights you may have missed.

Ross shocked many people by picking Hugo instead of his typical main, E. Honda, in this set, but Mago had a surprise of his own, choosing to go with what many are saying is his new main, Yang, instead of Fei Long, which he's ran for the last several years.

Ross opened strong in this set, with a lot of very clever reads, which did massive damage to the low stamina Yang. Here are a few early highlights in animated form.

Blanka has a teleport that deals damage, Sagat's EX Tiger Raid does 9 hits - Daigo and Mago test out Ultra Street Fighter 4's Omega Mode

Yesterday at Tokyo Game Show 2014, Capcom unveiled their brand new, upcoming Ultra Street Fighter 4 DLC, Omega Mode. We have since seen images and even video footage of the free content in action, but now we get to see a bit more.

During their presentation at the expo, Capcom brought in MCZ|Daigo and MCZ|Mago to give Omega Mode a whirl on stage. The two pro players tested out Ryu and Sagat against the Capcom devs, and we get to see some new tricks from a handful of characters.

For example, Blanka is used in one of the matches, and we see that in Omega Mode, the king of the jungle has a teleport move that actually hits on it's way up. This move acts much like Spinal's Shadow Skeleport in Killer Instinct.

Additionally, Sagat's Tiger Raid from Street Fighter Alpha 3 makes a return, and the EX version deals 9 hits.

You can check out the full presentation below, and the video embed will jump you straight to the Daigo and Mago footage.

Updated: Omega Mode is meant to be fun, not balanced; update v1.04 inbound, fixes unintentional nerfs and PC online issues

Updated: Combofiend posted his latest blog entry over on Capcom Unity which divulges more information on the upcoming Omega Mode in Ultra Street Fighter 4. According to the Capcom representative, this new mode has a much heavier emphasis on fun than it does balance. The development team mainly focused on making all 44 characters feel new.

The upcoming game mode will be playable online, but only in an non-ranked setting. We can expect more information on Omega Mode as it surfaces.

This blog entry also states that a new patch is heading our way in October. The v1.04 update will fix the unintentional nerfs made to Decapre, Rolento, and Cody in the previous update, and will also add a Delayed Wake Up option to training mode. Additionally, a number of PC online connectivity issue fixes are being made, such as players receiving pings mid-match, causing slowdown.

A full breakdown for the v1.04 patch will be unveiled closer to the update's release.

Earlier: Over at Tokyo Game Show 2014 tonight, Capcom announced a new game mode set to be added to Ultra Street Fighter 4. This fresh content is called "Omega Mode."

In Omega Mode, characters gain access to a wide array of new, crazy special moves and changes. Ken can shoot fireballs from a kick special move, Guile throws three Sonic Booms in succession for 7 hits, and much more.

Below we have added a video breakdown of this new mode.

New character Catalina announced for Tekken 7, location tests start on October 3rd, netplay implemented, one more new character in loc test build

Update: It was mentioned on-stream that one more brand new character will be featured in the location tests, and was described as "very different" and "more along the lines of something you'd find in a 2D fighter".

It was just announced that a new character will be joining the Tekken 7 franchise, who is a latin american woman called Catalina. It was noted that she will be speaking a lot, and taunting the opponent while fighting, which is unusual in Tekken. She was also noted as being a good character for beginners to use.

It was also said that she would have a new style we've never seen before in Tekken. She will be available, playable, for the location tests that begin on October 3rd.

Desk returns to show that Chun-Li's LP into Lightning Legs is an excellent pressure tool, and incredibly difficult to perform in USF4

Combo wizard Desk returns with another Ultra Street Fighter 4 demonstration. Today we learn how to combo Chun-Li's light punch into Lightning Legs, and how it can be applied in a match.

Desk explains that this particular combo must be performed in the span of 12 frames. With the 3 frame start up of LP, and the 9 frames of hitstop, you'll have to input a kick button on every other frame.

This technique works as a great pressure tool, as LP is much faster than crouching HP. However, the difficulty level for pulling this off is much higher than the cr. HP - Lightning Legs BnB.

Check out Desk's latest tutorial below.

Comeback mechanics are all the rage nowadays - In Super Smash Bros. 4, the attacker's percentage affects how far the opponent will be sent flying

It's hardly a secret that the higher percentage you have in Super Smash Bros., the further you get sent flying. That's just, oh, you know, the whole point of the game.

What Super Smash Bros. 4 brings, however, which has also gone completely unmentioned on the official site, is that not only does your own percentage factor in — but the attacker's percentage does, too.

This technique, currently referred to as "The Rage Effect", is shown in this video with a side-by-side comparison of how far Bowser gets sent flying by Mario's up-smash when Mario himself is at different percentages.

With comeback mechanics being present in all manner of fighting games today, from Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom all the way to Tekken, it might not come as much of a surprise that Super Smash Bros. has adopted the same mantra. What is surprising, though, is that the detail-savvy Sakurai neglected to mention this to us. You can see it in action below.
