Inspired by Final Round 18, UltraDavid tries his voice at radio commentary for Ultra Street Fighter 4

During Final Round 18, a technical difficulty during a particularly crucial match caused the video feed to drop. Because audio was still streaming, UltraDavid switched commentary styles from analysis to a mixture of play-by-play and analysis without missing a beat.

It resulted in him being praise by the stream chat and fighting game forums–and rightfully so. As someone who has listened to a lot of sports on the radio, it immediately reminded me of tuning into an Orlando Magic game during a long drive.

UltraDavid, also inspired by the moment, has just released a YouTube "video" of himself trying live, radio-style commentary. Despite a moment of falling behind during some very quick action, the Street Fighter commentator expertly paints a moving image that is both informative and exciting.

Check out the audio footage below, then let it be known if you think this is just an interesting experiment or something you'd like to see more of in the future.

'The most important thing is to turn your losses into future wins' - Sako on character choices, evolving as a player, favorite fighting game and more

Please note: This interview was originally conducted in Japanese, and subsequently translated by myself, EventHubs' very own MajinTenshinhan.

Just a few weeks ago, Cannes Winter Clash wrapped up, and a whole plethora of talented players attended the event.

Thankfully, I was at the event representing our site, and managed to grab many interviews with players, which we will be publishing daily for about the next two weeks.

Today, one of Japan's fighting game legends, HORI|Sako talks character choices, Street Fighter 5, his all-time favorite fighting game, what's most important to evolve as a fighting game player, and more. You can find a snippet after the jump.

MajinTenshinhan: The Capcom Pro Tour prize money has increased greatly this year. Do you think that you will travel to more Capcom Pro Tour events this year?

HORI|Sako: Honestly, I'm not really thinking about it. Travelling abroad and winning events to get into the Capcom Cup is not really something I'm considering right now.

Hit the jump for the rest of the interview.

Watch the EventHubs staff in action as we take on Brolylegs, Integra and XSK Samurai in the Pandagon!

Update: Stream archive has been added to this story.

We bring you news on fighting games day in and day out, but have you ever wanted to see us actually playing them?

Tonight on Ultra Fight Night, our staff will be involved in all three of the exhibitions!

EventHubs creator Jonathan "Catalyst" Grey will be taking on Integra and his vicious Ken. Our head editor Steven "DreamKing" Chavez will be taking on PxG regular Brolylegs.

Finally I, a lowly editor, will be playing against XSK|Samurai to close out the night. Each of these exhibitions will be settled in first to seven sets.

I've gone around asking for each player's thoughts on their upcoming match:

DreamKing: "Broly is a very strong competitor and uses two characters that are my Achilles heel. Well... heels. We've played in the past and I've managed to steal a few victories. All I want to do is hit him with Dudley combos..."

Broly: "He's about to see a real Chun-li in action. Good luck to him though."

Catalyst: "I've beaten Integra online before a few days ago, so this runback should be interesting. Not sure if I caught him off guard and he's going to body me, or if I'm in a strong spot to win this."

Integra: "Lol."

Samurai: "I am excited to play a very strong Gouken!"

Here is tonight's fight card:

What does the best basketball team in the NCAA do in their free time? They play Super Smash Bros... and we have a video of it

The Kentucky Wildcats are currently 34-0. They've had an amazing season thus far and are slated to play against the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Sweet 16 tonight at 6:45pm PT.

With a rigorous schedule of traveling, playing, practicing, and full time school, these guys aren't privy to a whole lot of free time. When they do get a chance to unwind, they do so with Super Smash Brothers.

We're not talking Melee, Brawl or Smash 4. The Cats go retro-Smash with the original 1999 Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64, a game that came out when these guys were roughly four to six years old!

It all started when starting Forward, Alex Poythress, started bringing his N64 on trips for away games. Though it started with only about four Wildcats, popularity has increased and now eight or nine of the college competitors will be waiting around at any given time for their turn on the station.

Hit the jump to see the video.

Jin Kazama appears in Tekken 7 as hidden sub-boss character

Just last week, character data in Tekken 7 revealed that Jin Kazama, among other characters, is indeed in the new game.

It appears as though Jin is already in Bandai Namco's new fighter, but not necessarily as a playable character as of right now. This particular warrior can be found in-game as a hidden sub-boss during stage 4 of Arcade Mode.

While the conditions to make Jin appear are currently unknown, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada stated that the stipulations are difficult and a bit obscure.

You can check out a few images of Jin in Tekken 7 below.

Liu Kang, Kung Jin & NetherRealm Kung Lao's playable appearances in Mortal Kombat X revealed by Maxim Russia's 'Official Shaolin Trailer'

Maxim Russia has just published on their YouTube channel NetherRealm Studio's "Official Shaolin Trailer" for Mortal Kombat X -- it is highly likely that Maxim made the trailer live earlier than the intended timing by accident.

In any case, the official Shaolin trailer reveals that -- yes, you guessed it -- Liu Kang is making a return in Mortal Kombat X, this time as a fighter on the NetherRealm side of things, due to the incidents in Mortal Kombat (2011).

Liu Kang is joined by newcomer Kung Jin, and the previously unveiled Kung Lao (who appears in an alternate costume in the 3rd image above, and says that he "serves Shinnok and NetherRealm") in this trailer, which showcases many of their specials as well as X-Ray moves, and at least one Fatality near the end.

Check out the trailer below, before it's taken down!

Santarou picks Evil Ryu, and Kichijoji ken goes with... regular Ryu? Dashio comes on and plays... Rufus instead of Seth? Ft10 sets from Yubiken

On the previous Yubiken stream (2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month), YBK|Kichijoji Ken and YBK|Santarou ran a first-to-10 set that was very different from their usual sets.

Instead of picking Ken and Sagat, the characters that Kichijoji Ken and Santarou are respectively known for, they had picked Ryu (Kichijoji) and Evil Ryu (Santarou).

And that's not all -- special guest YBK|Dashio also did a first-to-10 with Kichiken. Except, in this set, Dashio had been playing Rufus instead of Seth. Even though Seth is considered by quite a number of top players to be a top 5 character in the game now.

What is going on? Is it topsy-turvy day?

We asked YBK|Kim1234 for some answers. Check out his response and the two first-to-10 sets below
