Tiers for Ultra Street Fighter 4 Tiers for Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Omega Mode roundup: C. Viper's infinite, Juri's Marvel-style aerial rave and Feng Shui Engine loops, 'OmeGuile' combos and more

It's time for another Ultra Street Fighter 4 Omega Mode roundup. We're kicking things off with the third infinite combo discovered for this completely broken bonus fun mode -- this time it's for C. Viper.

In any case, Omega Viper's infinite combo is actually pretty simple; in Omega Mode, Capcom has made it super easy for players to pull off a Thunder Knuckle feint. So what's happening is that if you perform C. Viper's close-standing MK followed by a Thunder Knuckle feint, the opponent's hit stun animation is long enough for you to combo into standing MK again, allowing you to rinse and repeat.

At this rate, we wouldn't be surprised at all even if it turns out that half of the roster or more ends up possessing infinite combos. It's starting to look a little like Marvel vs. Capcom 3, what with all those single-combo KO's.

Super Arcade moving locations! Exclusive interview with owner Mike Watson

Super Arcade tweeted earlier today that they would be moving to a new location.

This news came to the surprise of virtually everyone in the SoCal scene and seemingly out of left field.

Immediately after the tweet popped up there were many inquiries as to why the arcade was moving and to where. The most popular question however, was "Why is this happening just months after the Kick Starter renovation process?"

We contacted Super Arcade's owner, Mike Watson with a few questions regarding this big and sudden change. Hit the jump to see the interview.

Desk's 1st Omega Edition vids: Ryu's regular fireball combos into itself, EVO moment #37 replicated, Rufus CMV and more

Before we dig into Desk's videos, I'd just like to take a moment to let everyone know that thanks to everyone's Omega Edition video submissions, the EventHubs inbox is officially flooded -- but keep sending those videos in (we're looking through everything).

You guys clearly love the new Omega Edition mode. This is probably one of the best things Capcom has done to the game (on top of adding the much-requested trials, fixing bugs and all of that other good stuff).

In any case, it's going to take us a bit of time to sort through all of the submissions. I just wanted to take a moment to say that we're working through them, and there will be some sort of a Omega Edition roundup (maybe roundups) later today.

So in the meantime, check out these Omega Edition CMVs and mode analysis vids that everyone's favorite combo maestro Desk has put out.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 tiers reset, old scores available in archives

With the 1.04 release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, we thought it was a good time to reset the tier scores and start from new as the game had undergone new balance changes.

If you're wondering where the old listings went to, you can scroll down and find them at the bottom of the tiers page, or you can look directly at the old USF4 tiers index and match up table.

To keep the tier listings from being as susceptible to erratic change in their initial phase, we've implemented a few new things to help normalize the initial votes. It's worth noting again that trolling our tiers can and likely will lead to a lifetime ban, as our automated system is constantly checking for people who abuse their votes.

There are additional measures in place to help ensure user voting stays accurate as well.

All match up comments were retained though, so if you want to discuss any of the match ups, or offer advice on how to counter a specific characters, those previous bits of knowledge are still intact.

So head on over and see how things are shaking out now.

If you have any questions, as always, feel free to leave them below.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 Wild Costumes trailer: see the new DLC in motion before you buy

The Wild Costumes DLC packs for Ultra Street Fighter 4 are out!

You've seen the images for what the costumes look like for all 44 fighters -- now see them in motion in this official trailer that Capcom has just released.

If you still can't decide which packs you'd like to buy, maybe the trailer will help; it provides a brief overview of what each separate costume pack contains, on top of teasing just how awesome Ryu looks in his Wild Wolf costume.

Doge would easily give Ryu's costume a two-thumbs-up rating (if he had opposable thumbs, that is).

Ibuki also has an infinite combo in Ultra Street Fighter 4: Omega Edition

Infinite combos in Ultra Street Fighter 4 aren't new -- and I'm not talking about the Omega Gen one discovered yesterday.

Even in the regular edition of Ultra Street Fighter 4, infinite combos do exist. Whether or not they're practical or applicable in a real match, however, is another thing altogether.

These infinite combos usually require a great deal of skill to execute. So it was a little shocking to learn yesterday that Omega Gen had one that was so simple that practically anyone could perform it -- but that's Omega Edition for you. This fun and free mode is designed from the ground up to let players pull off crazy feats.

And today, another such cool and crazy feat has been discovered, in the form of an infinite combo for Omega Ibuki. Unlike Omega Gen's, however, this combo will really test your execution skills.

Check it out below, then hit the labs to see if you, too, can pull it off.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend comes to Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 April 2015; supports cross-platform online play on PlayStation

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven wasn't the only new fighting game announced this week.

The upcoming issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine will also be revealing on Thursday the first details for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend, an enhanced port of what's technically the third installment of Arc System Works's fighting game franchise, that will be making its way to the PS3, PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend will feature the two new characters (Celica A. Mercury and Lambda-11) that were recently introduced with BBCP Ver. 2.0 in Japanese arcades, as well as all of the balance tweaks included in the updated version.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven PS4/PS3 tag battle fighting game announced, downloadable demo to come soon

A new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game is in the works over at Bandai Namco Games, the latest issue of am unnamed Japanese games magazine (likely to be Weekly Shonen Jump) is revealing this week.

Entitled "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven", the new fighter is said to be a tag battle game where the action will take place on 3D stages. What isn't mentioned specifically is if this new title is a sequel to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle (also published by Bandai Namco Games but developed over at Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm maker CyberConnect 2).

Although the visuals in this new game, as you'll see in the leaked scan below, appears to be highly similar to those of All-Star Battle, the text itself makes no reference to JJBA:ASB. Given that the gameplay in All-Star Battle is locked to a 2D plane, like in a traditional fighting game, Eyes of Heaven may or may not be an attempt to take the series in another direction.

Earlier today, the Microsoft team ran a live stream to show off the most recently revealed fighter to enter the Killer Instinct season 2 fray: Riptor. During the broadcast, the MS team showed off what Riptor is all about, along with some fresh content reveals that fans can expect to receive in the upcoming update -- that which drops on Wednesday of this week.

For those of you wanting to see the best of Riptor, but don't have time to sit down and watch a 2-hour stream archive, you're in luck. Tonight we bring to you a few animated GIFs that feature the prehistoric fighter's stage finisher, accessories, and even a quick glimpse at early mix-ups that players should definitely look into using when they get their hands on the character. Not only that, but Maximilian has uploaded footage of Riptor's full Ultra, which can be found after the jump.

Fans of TJ Combo also get a special treat tonight, as the KI boxer's Retro costume was displayed on stream today. We caught a glimpse of the default Retro outfit -- which is based mostly on TJ Combo's KI2 iteration -- and two of the accessory sets for the alternate outfit, one of which is a full-blown 70's look complete with an afro.

Decapre's anti-air UC2 does not need down charge, unlisted Cody nerf, Akuma's fireball buffs - USF4 Ver. 1.04 roundup

It's not even been a full day since the new patch for Ultra Street Fighter 4 was released, and already various members of the community have found some very interesting tech for Ver. 1.04.

First up, BCN|Alioune has been spending quite a bit of time in the lab with the new and improved Ver 1.04 Decapre, experimenting with various things -- such as the game's prioritization for the anti-air version of her UC2.

At first Alioune appeared to not like the change. He mentioned on Twitter that the game somehow gave him the anti-air version of Decapre's UC2 even though he did not even input an up-forward direction.

But then he noticed something very cool: if you use the right command, you could even get away with pulling off the anti-air version without even having to store a down charge.

Omega Edition: Ultra Street Fighter 4 full command list - Sakura's 2 EX bars move is activated by PPP, Decapre's target combo is back+MP, HK

"Hey EventHubs," an anonymous tipster wrote in.

"[I just found out that] Omega Sakura's new super is done by simply pressing 3 punches. Glitch?"

No, anonymous one, that is not a glitch. Omega Sakura's new 2-EX-bars move is performed simply by hitting all three punch buttons whenever you have enough meter to perform it, and that's fully intended by the developers at Capcom.

Also, if your opponent blocks that, you can then go into any of two follow-ups after the move, performed by hitting P or K respectively. Bet you didn't know that now, did you?

As some of you may have noticed by now, although the Omega Edition mode has been released for Ultra Street Fighter 4, the command lists in the game only show details on the moves for the USF4 edition of all 44 characters. Which is a bit of a problem since there are so many new moves and changes in Omega Edition. Some of these moves do not even use conventional Street Fighter series commands.

Omega Edition glitch: Rufus freezes in mid-air in Ultra Street Fighter 4

There's another odd character freezing glitch in Ultra Street Fighter 4 -- but fortunately this time the glitch only happens in the free Omega Edition just-for-kicks mode, which can only be played online through Endless Lobbies and not in Ranked Match.

It looks like under certain conditions, when Rufus performs a Snake Strike in the air, he'll freeze in place for a while before teleporting to a lower position in the air, remaining frozen until his opponent decides to snap him out of it (but not before a quick belly rub for good luck, of course).

We're not exactly sure what is happening here, but according to Melongod who sent this in, the Rufus freeze glitch is apparently quite easy to replicate.

You can see video of the glitch happening below, taken from a Pandax Gaming live stream broadcast earlier today.
