PC mods: Street Fighter 2 stages make their way into Ultra Street Fighter 4, check out Ken's, Ryu's, Dhalsim's, and more here

Since the release of Street Fighter 4 back in 2008, players have requested that Capcom release a DLC stage pack that recreated classic stages from Street Fighter 2. Though the life of Ultra Street Fighter 4 DLC is more than likely coming to an end soon (with Street Fighter 5 already on the way), the chances of us seeing such content is probably pretty slim. That is, unless, we don't take into account PC mods.

PC Best Mods has uploaded footage of some truly epic USF4 PC mods. Instead of character alterations, this time around we get to see fresh backdrops for the fighters to engage in battle upon.

As you may have guessed, these stage mods were created to bring players a touch of nostalgia. Below you will find a handful of images showing off Ryu, Dhalsim, and Ken's SF2 stages in USF4.

Capcom explains pro tour rule change, feels Street Fighter 5 is going to be a huge milestone for fighting games

Capcom explains pro tour rule change, feels Street Fighter 5 is going to be a huge milestone for fighting games

While we covered Street Fighter 5 extensively in our discussion with Capcom at E3 2015, I also wanted to get their thoughts on how the pro tour was playing out, including the rule change where 5th place finishers at premiere events wouldn't be awarded a spot in the Capcom Cup, if the 1st through 4th placers had already won automatic bids.

"The intention of premiere events is that you have to be a champion, or get a very notable placement. If you placed 5th, it won’t be an automatic spot," Capcom's Matt Dahlgren told us.

"We felt that was a good place to draw the line, because we would have to do some sort of playoff between the two 5th place finishers, which isn't the most exciting way of handling that situation," he added.

"I think a better approach is opening up a new spot for someone who was more consistent throughout the entirety of the tour."

Check out Tokido in this hilarious, fake commercial for the TOPANGA Charity Cup

The TOPANGA Charity Cup played out just yesterday in Japan, and viewers received a little bonus as a few of the biggest names at the tournament appeared in short comedy spots.

MCZ|Tokido, known for his intensely serious aura while playing, showed his lighter side in a bit about a makeshift arm sling for players who've pushed themselves too far.

The concept of such an injury as a result of playing video games is pretty funny on its own, but to see The Murderface through such a light-hearted and downright silly lens is probably the biggest draw.

Yoshinori Ono teases preparations for San Diego Comic-Con - What will we hear about Street Fighter 5 next?

Though we already know about Capcom's general plan for San Diego Comic-Con, and that Ono will be there to talk about something Street Fighter 5 related, he has once more decided to hit Twitter to tease his inevitable showcase.

The preparations he's describing are undoubtedly related to Street Fighter 5, so the question remains, what exactly will we hear about? This Tweet is much less hinting than his usual fair, nor is it really misleading in any way. Here's the Tweet in question:

What do you make of it? What are you hoping to see for Street Fighter 5 this coming weekend? Sound off in the comments.

No balance patches currently planned for Ultra Street Fighter 4, blood and gore will likely prevent a crossover with Mortal Kombat

No balance patches currently planned for Ultra Street Fighter 4, blood and gore will likely prevent a crossover with Mortal Kombat

Rounding out our discussion with Capcom at E3 2015, we asked if there were any plans for additional Ultra Street Fighter 4 balance patches.

"At this moment in time, there isn't any," Peter 'Combofiend' Rosas told us.

"The possibility may exist after Capcom Cup, but right now we're fine with the balance," he continued.

Capcom added that this is the most balanced version of Street Fighter 4 that has ever existed.

"It's really hard to tweak a game that the community has told us is the most balanced," Rosas said.

Do Ingrid and Bison share a trait that hints at the storyline of Street Fighter 5? BornFree hits the Udon Street Fighter Encyclopedia for answers

BornFree has grabbed hold of our attention in recent months having come out with some interesting speculations regarding the character roster in the upcoming Street Fighter 5. Whether these theories hold any truth remains to be seen, but the YouTuber is back with yet another speculation today.

This time around he's not predicting any future cast members, but rather putting Udon's Street Fighter Encyclopedia under the microscope to see if it has any information about SF5.

Long time Street Fighter fans were rather shocked at Birdie's new appearance in SF5 as the "headbut happy glutton," with emphasis on the glutton part. Birdie's profound physical change has been a popular subject for discussion in many circles.

Udon's Street Fighter Encyclopedia, which was published back in February, and no doubt written well before it hit shelves, notes one of Birdie's special abilities as "gluttony." This leads us to believe that perhaps the creators at Udon were privy to some foreknowledge about SF5.

If so, Born's observations about Ingrid and Bison may hold some truth as well. You can see just what we're talking about in the video after the jump.
