Right in the feels... this emotionally charged EVO 2015 recap montage may bring a tear to your eye

EVO 2015 Ultra Street Fighter 4 grand finals. AVM|Gamerbee brings it all the way back from the losers bracket only to lose in the absolute final round to EG|Momochi, he stands on the stage, staggered, exhausted and helpless. Though there are plenty of people surrounding him, he is truly alone in this moment.

From the side of the stage, Gamerbee's girlfriend emerges from the crowd, running to embrace him, overwhelmed with both sorrow and pride for her champion. She finally reaches him, and there are now two on the stage. The victory is Momochi's, but the name being chanted is Gamerbee's.

It's not just about playing games. The fighting titles that so many of us enjoy are simply catalysts for the intricate web of relationships that form the fighting game community.

It's also not just about the competition. Though often salty for a moment after we lose, we gather in the halls, or flock to live streams on Sunday to share in the incredibly emotional triumphs and defeats of the finalists.

This montage from evo2kvids invites us to relive the highs and the lows from the grandest EVO to date. Hit the jump to watch it.

Cross ups that even trick the game? Can you tell which side these ambiguous set ups land on in the Street Fighter 5 beta?

With ample time to start investigating the Street Fighter 5 beta, players have already begun their quest to discover wacky or broken tech to exploit.

While the tech we've rounded up for you here today may not be game breaking, it's certainly worth taking a look at. Burnout Fighter has taken an in-depth look at the ever developing cross up tech for SF5.

Though the game includes notifications when a cross up occurs, it looks as though there may be situations wherein you can actually cross up without the game stating so.

It appears as though this has been addressed in the latest build, but should still be a part of the online beta. Hit the jump below to see the video.

The new 1.05 patch for Ultra Street Fighter 4 on PlayStation 4 fixes display bugs, audio issues and more

With the Capcom Pro Tour season to finish out, developers continue to fine tune Ultra Street Fighter 4 on the PlayStation 4. We've come quite a long way since USF4's initial release on Sony's PS4, but there are still a few wrinkles to iron out.

The 1.05 patch has been released for download, and is a 556.6 MB update. This patch features audial and visual changes within the game's many menus, but does not contain any alterations to any of the 44 characters' game play.

You can view the changes in the image below:

Daigo forgets the team pose, but then gives Ogawa a run for his money in this incredibly close set at the Toshin-Gekitotsu team exhibition

MCZ|Daigo is most prominently known for his standard-setting Street Fighter play, but The Beast has also been known to venture into other games' territories from time to time.

Daigo has been dusting off his Guilty Gear game, and at the Toshin-Gekitotsu team exhibitions, he faced off against this year's EVO champion for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, Ogawa.

Showing his fighting game fluency is certainly not restricted to Street Fighter alone, Daigo presents the head honcho of Guilty Gear with more than competent competition.

Necalli's V-Trigger changes up his frame data - Constantly updated notes detail this Street Fighter 5 character's capabilities

The team at Unequaled Media has had the chance to play the current build of Street Fighter 5 at Capcom headquarters recently, and one of their members has begun compiling and updating his notes on Necalli, the first brand new fighter to join the roster.

Not many have had a lot of time with the brutal fighter, so this document has a ton of fresh information, and is being updated constantly with more as UM Chaos gets more time with the game, as well as compiles his own research.

For example, we find that Necalli's V-Trigger isn't any ordinary power up, with it changing up his frame data and making previously impossible combos entirely doable. His claw rush special, The Disc's Guidance, also has one hit of super armor and reaches quite far.

Hit the jump for another example, and a link to the document.

'After Chinatown Fair closed, I felt like gamers still needed a home' - Henry Cen talks Next Level's closure, Chinatown Fair, and more

Though it almost goes without saying, Next Level Arcade in New York City is a haven for many east coast fighters looking to find a home away from home. A new documentary by Psycho Crusher Productions looks to capture that spirit and purpose in a film all about this legendary arcade, and the man behind it, Henry Cen.

The documentary spans Cen's early days in Chinatown Fair, the creation of Next Level Arcade, and over four years of history leading up to it's closure, including all of the fighting game community members that helped make it possible.

The film is currently untitled, but in production, and is looking to make a 2016 release. The teaser trailer certainly contains some melancholic feelings, but remains upbeat, an atmosphere Next Level always provided.

'In every game, you need a counter pick.' - Xian and Zhi tackle mobile gaming, video hints at the return of Cross Counter Asia

Though it's been years since we've heard of Cross Counter Asia, we may have a hint of it's return, with a new video where RZR|Xian and Zhi take on the mobile game GameStart 2015, and discuss Xian's qualification for the Capcom Pro Tour Finals.

In this video, the guys take on a promotional game called GameStart 2015 (named after the upcoming convention), created by Seow “Sonic” Zonghui, the creator of Street Fighter x Megaman. Xian finds that he is playable, and attempts to surmount the game's challenges to...varying degrees of success.

The video's description hints at a return for Cross Counter Asia, and if so, it would be great to see them tackle Street Fighter 5 content. RZR|Xian and Zhi bring great humor to the table with their chemistry, even in this video, making it a treat to watch.

Guilty Gear Revelator officially out in Japan, over 13 hours of direct feed action shows off gameplay changes, new characters, and more

With many people, myself included, hungry to see more of Guilty Gear Revelator, we can finally begin to see players playing the game through full release. It's officially out in Japan, and the streamer Joniosan was kind enough to get us a huge amount of choice footage.

Joniosan mirrored a direct feed livestream happening last night, with over 13 hours of Revelator footage for us to dissect. This is a combination of both training mode play and actual matches, a number of which are at a high level.

In the stream archive, the first actual match takes place at 31 minutes in. At various points throughout Johnny and Jack-O are used to a great degree, allowing us to see those characters, and to be able to watch players experiment with new changes to old favorites.

Necalli gets buffed, Nash gets nerfed and every character gets another V-Reversal; check out the updates for the latest Street Fighter 5 build

Editor's Note: At this point, we are unable to fully confirm these changes are 100% accurate, as we don't have access to the current build.

We've gotten wind, from VersusFightingTV, of the latest changes to the Street Fighter 5 build. As far as we know, these are not changes to the current beta, so don't expect to necessarily see this build at home quite yet. This is what you'd find if you get your hands on an SF5 cabinet at an event.

Also, as this is not straight from Capcom, this list may not be exhaustive of all the current changes. Such alterations as nixing Kara throws and adding new Crush Counters and V-Reversals may make for some interesting developments.

After the jump, you'll find the full change list along with two videos featuring game play of the current build.

Ai-Eye's art is so inspiring that it made its way into Udon's Capcom Fighting Tribute

Ai-eye is a Japanese artist with a love for fighting games. Looking through her galleries, we've nabbed a few samples of her work that we found particularly interesting.

Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Marvel vs. Capcom and other titles are represented in her work. She actually created two images, which you can see after the jump, that have successfully won spots in Udon's upcoming Capcom Fighting Tribute book.

A revamped title song, a 90's dance track and theme for an unused vampire character; check out these secret tracks from Killer Instinct 2

Rare Replay is a collection of 30 of Rare's most successful titles on the Xbox One. Along with the games themselves, Rare Replay also offers a ton of bonus content that deals with the myriad of titles.

Amongst these titles is Killer Instinct 2, and amongst the bonus content are three "Top-Secret Tunes" for it. Nineteen years after the game's release, only now are we discovering these tracks that didn't make it past the cutting room floor.

The first of these is a reworking of the famous title theme for KI. The second song, a 90's dance track, somewhat similar to Orchid's theme. The final song was meant to be the theme for a vampiric character that never made it into the game, and is titled, "Bloodlust."

Hit the jump below to dust off these old artifacts and give them a listen.

Gootecks' favorite thing about Street Fighter 5 is what Capcom didn't bring over from Street Fighter 4; Gootecks, Ultradavid, Xian and others talk SF5

A series of recent interviews by Red Bull eSports have captured inputs on Street Fighter 5 from a couple notable fighting game community members.

Amongst these members are RZR|Xian, a top player, Ultradavid, a household name in fighting game commentary, and Ryan "Gootecks" Gutierrez, currently best known for his video content, though he also plays and commentates.

Each of these figures offer up their own inputs about different facets of the game in progress. Gootecks focuses on the fresh start and departure from Street Fighter 4. Xian notes the type of character(s) he's hoping to see, and Ultradavid discusses the game's flow.

The drastically different, yet all very valid, approaches in these short interviews offer multiple lenses from through which we can examine the highly anticipated upcoming title. Hit the jump to see exactly what they had to say.

Don't look under the bed... Dogura and Eita freak out when they experience the terror of Five Nights at Freddy's

Recently, a few of our favorite fighting game players from Japan took a break from their usual beat em' ups to experience the horror game phenomenon that is Five Nights at Freddy's.

For those unaware, Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) is a first person horror game that features possessed animatronic figures that pop out to jump scare the user when they fail to solve the game's puzzles correctly.

We normally see players like Dogura and Eita only as they engage in intense tournament matches. Under such circumstances, they often appear fairly stoic, which can help a player maintain their center while playing.

In this video however, we get to see view players in a much more relaxed light. Watch as they traverse the haunting halls of FNAF 4, and collectively react with hilarious outbursts of pent up anxiety. You'll find the video after the jump.
