Tiers for King of Fighters 13

First in-game look at Decapre, Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison's alternate costumes in Ultra Street Fighter 4, 2nd wave of costumes also shown

Famitsu, a Japanese gaming publication, posted in their magazine the first in-game look at Decapre, Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison's alternate costumes in Ultra Street Fighter 4. Each of these outfits was designed by UDON, and just yesterday, we saw the Decapre's costume design for the first time.

If you look closely at the image below, you can see that there are in-game screenshots showing a 2nd wave of alternate costumes for Rolento, Poison, Elena, and Decapre. It appears as though Rolento is donning his plumber getup from Street Fighter X Tekken, and Poison is also getting one of her SFxT outfits.

Players will be able to use these costumes if they have save data from Street Fighter X Tekken on their hard-drives. Decapre's costume isn't actually a new design, but rather, Cammy's SFxT alternate outfit. These costumes will also be available in the arcade version of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

A thorn in the jaguar's paw? GamerBee faces one of his greatest challenges yet: A Zangief player named GOGO BABY CHAN

AVM|GamerBee recently uploaded a great set of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 matches between himself and an exceptional Zangief player by the name of GOGO BABY CHAN.

The two players battle it out for nearly 40 minutes, and GamerBee even commented about just how good this Zangief player is over on his personal Twitter account.

It's rare that we see either Adon or Zangief played on a high level, (sans the few tournament players who still use these characters competitively), so this is definitely a treat for anyone looking for some great SSF4 AE v2012 action, minus the top tiers.

USF4's Red Focus intended for casual players, delayed wake-up made for hardcore competitors; Ayano says Ryu users will enjoy playing Poison

Ultra Street Fighter 4's assistant producer, Tomoaki Ayano, spoke to Siliconera once again in order to discuss the upcoming SF4 series update. This particular interview focuses mainly on the subject of complexity, and if USF4 may become too complicated with all of the new game mechanics being added.

To better address this question, Ayano starts out by explaining the thought process behind creating both Ultra Street Fighter 4's Red Focus and delayed wake-up mechanics. He admits that Red Focus was created with casual players in mind.

"It [Red Focus] was conceived as a technique to deal with incoming multi-hit attacks via simple button input," the assistant producer says. "We see it as a way to bring more casual users into the fold and reignite interest among players who may have been sitting out of the Street Fighter IV series until now."

Capcom: There's no reason fighting games shouldn't be bigger than they are - Pro Tour born out of this thinking

Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas was recently asked by Lone Star Gamer about the Capcom Pro Tour and the methodology behind their approach of why they launched this new venture.

"We were sitting around thinking that 'there's no reason fighting games shouldn't be bigger than they are'," said Rosas.

He noted that fighting games are the closest people can get to MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) matches, and there's no reason that these titles shouldn't be broadcast to a greater amount of people.

"We feel that [Capcom] stepping in can definitely help bring everything together, help create this one cohesive league," said Rosas.

Asked about the future of the Capcom Pro tour, Rosas believes things will grow beyond what users currently see.

Peter also delves into other topics like if he misses competing at tournaments, and covers some of the balancing philosophy they're trying to use when working on Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Major League Baseball star Hunter Pence has a pretty sick Green Arrow in Injustice: Gods Among Us

IGN's Destin Legarie recently sat down to play a few games of Injustice: Gods Among Us, and with him he had a special guest opponent. Major League Baseball athlete, and outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, Hunter Pence stopped by to get in some matches.

Despite devoting his life to being an MLB star, it seems that Pence has clocked in a great amount of time playing Injustice. As you can see in the following footage, the Giants' outfielder not only has a solid understanding of the game mechanics, but also has a pretty sick Green Arrow.

Not only that, but Pence mentions in the video that he enjoys watching Injustice streams in his spare time. It's always a treat to see people in other specialties enjoying fighting games and taking the time to acquire the knowledge.

Red Focus builds twice as much Ultra meter as regular Focus Attack, T. Hawk is 'definitely a character to watch in USF4' - PAX East stream notes

At the Capcom Pro Tour PAX East 2014 tournament, that which took place this past weekend, an Ultra Street Fighter 4 exhibition was held on finals day (yesterday). During the Capcom Fighters broadcast, USF4's associate producer Mike Evans and Capcom marketing manager Dan Pantumsinchai provided commentary throughout the special event.

Naturally, the two Capcom representatives talked extensively about the upcoming Street Fighter 4 series update, dropping quite a few interesting bits of information.

According to Evans, Red Focus' utility isn't only limited to the number of hits it can absorb. The associate producer mentioned that when absorbing attacks, Red Focus actually builds twice as much Ultra meter than a regular Focus Attack does.

Additionally, Evans says that T. Hawk is "definitely a character to watch" in Ultra Street Fighter 4 because he is getting some nice improvements.

There is a lot to be read here, including facts about Elena, Poison, Rolento, Cammy, Sakura, Dee Jay and more. Hit the jump to check out the transcript.

K-Brad: I might not play Cammy anymore, I might play Decapre; That mask? I'm ready for it - SCR champ talks EG sponsorship, character choice, and more

Lone Star Gamer caught up with the SoCal Regionals 2014 champion, Kenneth "EG|K-Brad" Bradley, over at Texas Showdown last week. During their conversation, K-Brad discussed a wide array of topics including how he went about scoring his newly acquired sponsorship, character choice, his experience at ESGN TV's Fight Night, and more.

On the subject of his main character, K-Brad states that he actually liked Cammy much before she was considered top tier in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012. Although he's since made a name for himself using the blonde rushdown fighter, he mentions that he may actually be dropping Cammy in exchange for Decapre once Ultra Street Fighter 4 hits. "I might not play Cammy anymore; I might play Decapre because, that mask? Decapre in that mask? Oh my god, I'm ready for that!"

He also discusses his time at ESGN TV's Fight Night in Berlin, Germany. The Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 show featured numerous top-level competitors, and during his time there, K-Brad felt as though he wasn't quite on their level of skill. Upon returning home, K-Brad buckled down and practiced every day, which he feels led to his victory at SCR 2014.

There's much more included here, so be sure to hit the jump and check out the video interview.
