Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Leak: Super Smash Bros. Wii U will have Master Hand and Crazy Hand event challenges, create-a-stage and board game modes

The cat is out of the bag! As it turns out, the new mode for Super Smash Bros. Wii U that Nintendo had been teasing does not appear to be one where you'll gain direct control of Crazy Hand or Master Hand.

Instead, it appears to be an event mode of sorts, where you'll be "competing in challenges crafted by Master Hand and Crazy Hand", according to an accidental slip-up in the description for the game on Amazon.

But that's not all; according to the same product description, the Wii U version of Smash 4 will also allow you to create custom stages on your Wii U gamepad, and outwit your opponents "in a brand new board game mode".

When will we get to see more 'Omega Edition' Ultra Street Fighter 4 change log videos? Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano finally tells us

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the Omega Edition mode for Ultra Street Fighter 4, first announced back at the Tokyo Game Show last month.

Sure, the Capcom Cup 2014 trailer did give us an itsy bitsy peak at some of the awesome changes that will be made to Balrog -- but that's barely anything.

Besides, as some of you noted in the comments previously, Balrog is still one of the original eight Street Fighter 2 world warriors. Just when exactly are we going to see and hear about the changes made to, well, you know, the other 36 exciting playable characters? There's more to USF4 than SF2 characters, Capcom!

That's been the question on many of your minds (and on mine, too) since TGS. Today, Capcom's Assistant Producer for USF4 Tomoaki Ayano finally has some answers for us on that front.

Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore from the Killer Instinct community has passed away today; SuperArcade, R/Kappa, Grimmmz organizing donation drives

Eight hours ago, Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore, an active player in SoCal's Killer Instinct scene, tweeted that he would be going up to play on stream next at Level Up's The Runback weekly tournament series. He was very excited to be playing at the tournament, and had rushed down from work to attend it.

Later that night, however, PushaTee collapsed at the event, prompting the organizers to call for an ambulance immediately. Paramedics soon arrived on the scene to take him to the emergency ward.

We're hearing reports from multiple accounts (Markman23, Jebailey, Dieminion) this morning that the paramedics did their best, and that PushaTee has passed on.

All of the staffers here at EventHubs would like to express our condolences to PushaTee's friends and family. Please leave some kind words for the dearly departed in the comments below, in memory of him, if you can.

Grimmmz, a close friend of PushaTee, has made a tribute video in memory of the KI player, which you can check out below.

Is NuckleDu the world's best Decapre player right now? Tricky resets, solid frame traps, game-winning overheads - Ultra Street Fighter 4 highlights

EG|K-Brad and Uryo may have been the first Decapre masters to break down the Shadaloo assassin's game plan for the rest of us in their handy quick-start tutorials for learning the character.

But when it comes to the title of "best Decapre player in the world", at the moment NuckleDu -- who is no longer with Black Triangles as the sponsorship agreement was not a long-term deal -- may very well take the crown. Even over EG|K-Brad and Uryo.

Or at least, that's the vibe I got when I watched The Beast's NuckleDu Decapre highlights compilation video, in which the California-based player pulls off solid frame trap after another, tricky Scramble mix-ups, game-winning overheads, and even a perfect round on Smug.

Regardless if NuckleDu is indeed the best Decapre in the world or not, watching him play has made me want to pick up the character again, that's for sure.

While a lot of us may not have been initially happy to learn that the Cammy clone is the 5th new character in Ultra Street Fighter 4, after seeing all of NuckleDu's tricks with the character, I'm really glad that Capcom put her in now.

See if you agree.

Capcom Cup 2014 VIP tickets now on sale; grab yours now before all 300 of them are gone

Although the historic Warfield Theatre in downtown San Francisco -- the venue for this year's Capcom Cup -- can officially accommodate up to 2,300 attendees, not every single one of those seats is going to give you the best possible view of all the action on-stage.

But about 300 of them will.

Back when the venue and programme details for Capcom Cup 2014 was announced last week, Capcom also announced that there would be 300 VIP tickets for fans who'd like to be sitting as close to the players and special guests as possible. VIP tickets will also come with a swag bag, as well as guarantee entry to an official after party at the Folsom Street Foundry -- where you'll get to mingle with the pros, and maybe even Capcom's very own Yoshinori Ono or Peter "Combofiend" Rosas.

If you're planning on attending Capcom Cup 2014 in person, there's no mistaking it: having a VIP ticket is going to give you the best experience, so you might want to grab yours before all 300 of them are sold out.

And the clock starts ticking now: Capcom Cup 2014's ticketing page is now up!

Daigo vs. Poongko: The Beast gets his runback against The Machine 3 years later on the latest episode of AngryTV

On the most recent episode of Poongko's AngryTV live stream, Poongko The Machine runs into an old rival online on Xbox Live -- the man that he very famously defeated 3 years ago at EVO 2011. MCZ|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara.

It's been a while since the two have played one another, however, and things have changed quite a bit. For one, MCZ|Daigo is no longer playing Yun. He's not even playing Ryu anymore. He has awakened to the ways of the Dark Hadou.

Poongko plays a number of pocket characters. But in this match, he's chosen to reprise his main character during EVO 2011, Seth, possibly to see how things will differ now that the game being played is Ultra Street Fighter 4. It's certainly an interesting choice, considering that the character has been widely considered to be weaker in this version.

Who will prevail in this runback? Find out in the match video embedded below this spoiler-free description.

Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- (PS3, PS4) launches in North America on December 16 - Download the demo, check out this English trailer

The wait for Arc System Works and Aksys Games's next-gen fighting game Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- is almost over. Today on the official PlayStation blog, Director of Production at Aksys Games Frank “Bo” deWindt II announced that GGXrd -Sign- will be released on North American shores on December 16, 2014.

That's a mere 12 days away from the Japanese and Asian release date on December 4. That is, I believe, the closest, any Arc System Works fighting game has ever gotten to a simultaneous release, up from the one month wait period between the Japanese/Asian and North American release dates for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Edit: If you're looking to pick up a new PS3/PS4 fight stick alongside your purchase of the game, Mad Catz's Mark "Markman" Julio has said that you can expect the Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- themed TE2 stick (pictured in image 6 of the gallery below) to launch at around the same time as well. The stick is compatible for both the PS3 and PS4 consoles.

If you can't wait to get your hands on the game, a demo for Guilty Gear Xrd where you can play as either Sol Badguy or Ky Kiske is currently available on the Japanese PS4 PlayStation Store. You will, however, need to be a Japanese PlayStation Plus member to access it (it is possible to apply for a free trial), and the demo is playable only until October 29.

Before you go on your PS4 though, first check out the official North American launch trailer for Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- below.

Sakurai hints new 'Master' and 'Crazy' modes for Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Nintendo may put the power in your hands

Earlier today, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai used his latest Pic of the Day to hint at a couple of new modes set to make an appearance in the Wii U version of the game.

In the screenshot we see two "Solo" options that read "Master" and "Crazy" with the words following blurred out. From the looks of it, Nintendo may be giving fans the opportunity to play as the Smash Bros. series' bosses: Master Hand and Crazy Hand.

Click image for larger version

The 3DS version of the new Super Smash Bros. has its own exclusive mode in Smash Run -- a quick adventure that allows players to explore a stage for 5 minutes, acquire power ups, then use the enhancers in battle.

Considering that the handheld port received its own game mode, there's a fairly high chance that the Wii U version will be given the same treatment. Is this what Sakurai is hinting at today? Only time will tell.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U is set to be released next month on November 21st.

Xian counter-picks Snake Eyez with Sagat, NuckleDu eliminates Pepeday, and more - USF4 replays from TFC 2014

This year's installment of The Fall Classic has come and gone, and if you're not currently subscribed to Capcom Fighters' Twitch channel, then chances are you haven't been able to go back and relive the top 16 action from the event's Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament.

Luckily, Capcom has already uploaded the winners, losers, and grand finals set on to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Not only that, but you'll find even more top-level bouts from the USF4 top 16.

In the grand finals set, RZR|Xian found that his trademark Gen wasn't working against Snake Eyez' Zangief. In an attempt to even the odds, the EVO 2013 champion switched up his character choice, counter-picking with Sagat. Additionally, you'll find the match in which NuckleDu's Decapre finally stopped the high-speed freight train that is /r/Kappa|Pepeday.

You can catch all of the action below.
