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

Vivi (Japan's #1 Chun-Li) performs a 218-hit, 840-damage Lightning Kicks loop combo on Dee Jay in Ultra Street Fighter 4

So we've known for a while now that Chun-Li has some really ridiculous Lightning Kicks loop combos. And that Dee Jay has one of the biggest character hurtboxes in the game, making him more susceptible to extended combos.

And we've certainly seen Chun-Li combo loops before, such as the 86-hit one that Desk performed in this CMV.

But a Chun combo that's over 218 hits? 300 hits (our estimation; the combo counter stops at 99 hits) (Edit: Our thanks to szakigeri who wrote in and told us the exact number of hits in the combo)? That does 840 damage on Ultra Combo Double and utilizes three FADCs? Yep, this combo builds up so much meter during its execution that you can actually afford to FADC for a third time.

That's not something we get to see everyday.

Japan's top Chun-Li player Vivi managed to perform a combo like that -- for the first time ever, he noted -- on his live stream this week. See it for yourself below.

Chris G shows off some cool UMVC3 tech for Akuma in this tatsu-super 363 hit loop

Chris G has been in the lab apparently developing his Akuma combos and the results are pretty terrifying.

Smash and Grab goes over the do's and don'ts of Lady Palutena in this character break down

Smash and Grab has graciously put together a character break down video for Lady Palutena.

Being the 'Goddess of Light' we kind of had some high hopes for her as a character in the Smash Series. Despite said hopes, up to this point, she has been regarded as only a mediocre character.

Perhaps this is simply because people haven't given her enough of a chance yet. This video will get any Palutena player off to a good start as it discusses how to utilize her more useful moves as well as why her less useful moves should be avoided.

Smash and Grab always does a great job with specifics. This video will teach you the effects of moves depending on spacing, angle and damage percent.

The Street Fighter scientist: Ultrachen takes a closer look at Capcom Cup contender Xian as he rushes down Poongko in this player analysis

UltraChen is back with another edition of World Warriors of Capcom Cup.

This time around they're breaking down Evo 2013 champion RZR|Xian's game play.

This video sees Xian playing in the grand finals of Capcom Pro Tour Asia qualifiers in Korea. He squares off against one of the most offensive players in the game, namely Korea's own Poongko.

Xian puts on an offensive clinic, commands control of the match and seems to be on the attack nearly all of the time.

One of the most notable aspects of Xian's game play is his ability to successfully attack through his opponent's offense. James Chen attribute's this ability to Xian's time spent analyzing the game and knowing just where the gaps in his opponent's offense are.

Really? Who else can wake up sweep against Poongko's Seth and get away with it?

Super Smash Bros. Wii U now available on eShop, tiers section and move lists launched here on EventHubs

Updated: Super Smash Bros. Wii U is now available for download on the Nintendo eShop.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U is only hours away from its official release, and we here at EventHubs have been diligently working to bring you updated site sections for launch.

First up, our Super Smash Bros. Wii U tiers have been reset for the upcoming version. Now, registered readers can go in and place votes based on the console version of the game. We didn't delete the 3DS tiers, however. You can still find the archived tiers index and match-up table here on the site.

Additionally, we have officially launched our Super Smash Bros. Wii U move listings. This is the second game to get the "new moves section" treatment (the first being Ultra Street Fighter 4), and these lists are more interactive than ever before! Now, players can vote on how effective each attack is, and write tips about each move to help others in the community gauge their usefulness.

Each character's page also includes useful information such as how popular they are (based on our stats pages), their weight (thanks to Smash Wiki), and more. Not to mention that we have completely overhauled the look of the entire moves section to make them easier to read and access.

Also, if you're looking to get some day 1 games in with opponents near you, be sure to use our Fight Tracker. This nifty feature allows you to search for players up to 1,000 miles away from you, and even find which games/characters they play.

We here at EventHubs got you covered on Super Smash Bros. Wii U launch day.

Blanka has more useful Red Focus combos than you may have thought! Learn how to utilize the new mechanic as the king of the jungle in USF4

In Ultra Street Fighter 4, some characters utilize Red Focus -- one of the game's new mechanics -- better than others. Characters such as Yun and Evil Ryu have effective uses for the meter-heavy facet, but when you think "Red Focus," you tend not to think of Blanka.

Fortunately for those who main the king of the jungle, Indo Imran did tie the two thoughts together, and as a result has created a combo exhibition to show what Blanka is capable of with Red Focus in USF4.

Much of these combos are practical, so they can easily be adopted and used in actual matches. You'll find setups that leave the opponent open for Ultra, Red Focus after tricky hop mix-ups, and much more.

We've seen a number of helpful resources on the front page of EventHubs lately, and today we add yet another. If you're looking to up your Blanka game, you won't want to miss this video.

Mewtwo to be paid Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U DLC in the future

Last month, Nintendo announced that Mewtwo would make his return to the Super Smash Bros. universe in the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game. The powerful Pokemon would become available as free DLC only to those who purchase and register both ports. Fans who prefer to own only one version were left wondering if they too would be able to snatch up Mewtwo somehow.

Nintendo revealed just this morning that Mewtwo will actually become paid DLC sometime in the future. As it stands right now, it seems this offer is only available to players in Europe, and we are anxiously awaiting word from the company on whether or not the add-on option will make its way to other regions.

However, those who do happen to purchase and register both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Smash will receive a special treat. Not only will you be rewarded with download codes for Mewtwo on both consoles, but those who register will be sent a copy of the exclusive Super Smash Bros. soundtrack that includes 72 tracks from both versions of the game.
