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

11 Ultra Enders in one go, a 100% combo, record-breaking 175 hits: 'Hold onto your butts!' DreamKing returns with a Riptor CMV

Finally... the King HAS COME BACK to combo videos!

Sorry. *Clears throat* Anyway, the headline says it all. I, the DreamKing, have finally found the time (and right setups) to make another Killer Instinct combo video.

This is my first full-fledged Killer Instinct season 2 CMV, but you may or may not (most likely not) have seen my season 1 work for Fulgore, Spinal, Thunder, and Sabrewulf.

Now, before the angry mob comes after me and says, "DreamKing, you're just promoting yourself since you work for EventHubs!" I'd like to point out that there are a number of techniques and accomplishments featured in this Riptor combo video that many may not be familiar with and that I feel should definitely be shared.

For example, in KI season 2 the ability to Instinct cancel Enders was removed, meaning that the highest number of Ultra Enders you can land this season hovers at 1 or 2 depending on the character. In this video, you'll see Riptor hit 11 Ultra Enders in one combo, and I'll explain how it's done after the jump.

You'll also see that Riptor has the ability to land a 100% combo, which again, is difficult to do for most characters since the removal of Instinct canceling Enders.

There's quite a bit going on in my latest work, so if you'd like to check it out and/or find out what's happening in each combo, hit the jump!

Ultra Street Fighter 4 occasionally crashes during local play - Beware of the 1.04 bug that's begun popping up in tournaments

There's been a bug sweeping the world of Ultra Street Fighter 4 fans ever since the 1.04 patch was released, and while it won't leave any lasting effects to your game or console, it's most certainly annoying.

What happens is, suddenly during a match, the game will slow down to slow-motion and start a very loud grinding sound. This does not go away unless you exit to the dashboard and restart the game entirely - going to the main menu and back into a new match will not make the problem go away.

This is an issue that's come to light only after version 1.04 of the game was released, and has begun to pop up at a few tournaments, among others, Kakutop League this last weekend. Personally, I also ran into it at a local tournament called King of Sweden during one of IND|Ixion's matches.

This phenomenon has been captured on video, and you can find it occuring during a match between UM|ImStillDaDaddy and GxC|Damascus at the monthly event HYPEdown after the jump.

Don't use Focus Attacks against this Guy - Watch superb confirms from counter hits that can net 400 damage for Guy in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Guy was capable of dishing out some extra pain by using run-stop if he got a counter hit on the 2nd hit of his target combo (a fact I actually wasn't aware of until I saw this video), but before Ultra Street Fighter 4, it was a one-frame link. In the current version, this is not only easier, but has also opened up some new capabilities for our sneaker-sponsored ninja master.

In the video, you'll see several good uses of this buff, but also some potential problems you might run into if you always try to go for full damage. Check it out below.

'How we handle this situation will determine whether Smash 4 will live or die' - Omni discusses Diddy Kong's strength in the newest Super Smash Bros.

"Diddy Kong is the best character in the game... right now."

Omni, a Smashboards moderator, addresses a very relevant issue in the Smash community: How to deal with seemingly overpowered characters.

He explains why Diddy is not as ridiculous as many would say he is, citing multiple strengths from other characters that rival or exceed the strengths Diddy Kong has.

Perhaps the most sobering part of his rant however, is when he addresses the community's reception and reactions to having a top tier character like Diddy. He argues that the game's life will be cut short if the community does not handle this issue in a graceful manner.

After you watch the video, we'd like to hear your comments on the subject. There's plenty to discuss so don't be shy!

Frost fights Cassie Cage, Kotal Kahn seeks Sonya Blade's help to combat Mileena - Mortal Kombat X comics overview

Although there's still a couple of months to go before Mortal Kombat X (MKX) is released on all the major gaming platforms today, DC Comics has been working with the fine folks over at NetherRealm studios to publish a series of MKX comics that explores some of the events that took place between Mortal Kombat (2011) and the new game.

Currently the comic series is up to chapter four, and it has revealed that in the world of Mortal Kombat X, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage are both still alive.

In fact, Kotal Kahn has actually come to Earth seeking Colonel Sonya Blade's help (yep, she's a colonel now... why the heck did she end up with Johnny Cage?) to defeat Mileena over in Outworld.

Tekken 7's initial release date finally confirmed; this is when you can expect to see the full game being played

Tekken 7 will finally be ready to play at the Super Nova arcade in Fukushima -- and other arcades that have placed orders for the "early release" version of the game -- on February 18, the official Twitter account for Super Nova revealed today.

But not all arcades in Japan will be receiving the game on February 18 itself, as the game was previously confirmed to be rolling out in Japanese arcades through two staggered phases: an early release in February, and a March "general release" period that will feature machine configurations slightly different from the early batches.

So mark your calendars, Tekken fans. February 18. Although we won't actually get to play the game in February ourselves (unless you happen to be in Japan in mid-February), given that more and more arcades have begun to stream or upload gameplay videos to the Internet, chances are we'll get to see some direct-feed footage of the full game right around that date.

The Niconico Shotenkaigi is a Japanese nationwide tour of events initiated to highlight the significance of book stores within the context of Japan's popular culture today.

Comprising a total of 10 separate events held at various book stores all across Japan on different dates, these live-streamed events feature Let's Play broadcasts, live performances, book signings and other activities -- such as an MCZ|Daigo vs. 100-man Kumite and a Daigo vs. Bonchan exhibition match held earlier today at the WonderGoo Moriya store in Ibaraki prefecture.

During the Daigo vs. Bonchan exhibition match segment, the two renowned USF4 players went up against one another in a total of three matches, picking characters that the event attendees and stream viewers at home wanted to see.

In the first match, Daigo plays Sagat against Bonchan's Evil Ryu. This was followed up with a Daigo (Guile) vs. Bonchan (Ryu) match, mostly because people wanted to see Daigo play Guile -- Bonchan just picked a character he thought would make this a good match.

And lastly, the two players went back to their respective mains for the final match, Daigo (Evil Ryu) vs. Bonchan (Sagat).

Catch all of the action in the video archive below.

White Daigo (Dan) takes on the Cross Counter duo in The Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross Ep. 50: Eat Your Lettuce

This latest episode of Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross kicks off with the Cross Counter duo both taking a turn each to fight The White Daigo on Xbox Live.

"I wonder how you do the... heart thing," a bemused Gootecks ponders as he picks Omega Poison from the character selection screen.

"It's not quarter-circle back and kick. It's not quarter-circle back and punch. Maybe it's fireball and kick," Gootecks continues as he shoots Mike Ross -- who's no doubt taking out his smartphone to look up the Omega Mode move list pages on EventHubs -- a look.

"Aw, there it is. There it is, Mike. Look at this, look at it," Gootecks goes as he performs Omega Poison's Honey Trap special move, which he now knows the command for. Mystery solved, all thanks to the EventHubs Omega Poison move list page.

And then the Cross Counter duo lived happily ever after... Or do they?

Find out by watching Ep. 50 of The Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross: Eat Your Lettuce, embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
