PR Balrog: U.S. scene doesn't help each other enough, in Japan players will teach even if it means they'll get beat

Eduaro "EG|PR Balrog" Perez dropped some knowledge on Twitter recently from his time spent in Japan playing in the Topanga World League.

Perez specifically noted the difference in styles from the U.S. to Japan, saying that he feels players over there are more concerned about their image, and that's why more emphasis is placed on playing perfect.

PR Balrog also said that one of the reason Japanese players have an advantage over the U.S. scene is they're geared more heavily towards helping one another — even if it's to their own short term detriment.

Hit the break for the rundown of Perez's thoughts on his trip and the scene overseas.

Elena's almost unblockable setup in Street Fighter X Tekken, weird glitch results when used with other characters

When using Elena's Heavy Kick Lynx Tail attack in Street Fighter X Tekken, auto-guard doesn't kick in because of a gap in the move.

LordWilliam1234 took advantage of this fact and used to it create a near unblockable setup when Elena is coupled with Abel.

He said that, "You can make it so the opponent pretty much has to just-frame guard in order to block it properly, and even if they do block it, they take normal damage from one of the hits despite the fact that they end in a guard state."

Because of the odd properties of Elena's move, it also causes the game to glitch out a bit when it is performed in conjunction with Nina, Juri and Akuma's overheads, as the character still manages to be hit by one attack, but then they immediately return to a guard state.

This definitely isn't game-breaking, but it's an interesting setup none the less. You'll find both videos after the break.

Japanese players being given unfair advantage in Ultra Street Fighter 4 readers say

Is having a nearly two month head start on learning the systems, character changes and more in Ultra Street Fighter 4 an unfair advantage for Japanese players?

Hundreds of readers voted, and said that this indeed was the case.

Some interesting arguments were made on both sides of the fences though, especially in regards to EVO. One reader claimed that with the players in North America essentially having "home field advantage," and not having to deal with as much traveling and jet lag, that balanced out some gamers getting the game early.

Others disagreed with this point, saying there was no substitute for hands on time with Ultra Street Fighter 4.

You can find the original discussion area here, where a lot of interesting back and forth dialogue happened.

One of the most unique designs for a fighting game controller you may ever see - Terminator T-800 hitbox

Hitboxes are a pretty unique style of controller for fighting games, but since they lack a joystick, modders can come up with some really innovative ways to lay out their designs.

One such product popped up from RoBoBOBR, based off of the T-800 cyborgs from the Terminator movies.

If model numbers of cyborgs from science fiction films are a bit too far out of your knowledge range, it's the robot Arnold Schwarzenegger played, but without any of the living flesh around it. Check out the shots.

How will DPs being -5 on block after an FADC impact Ultra Street Fighter 4? Video examines punishes and potential after effects of change
