Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Bonchan takes on the world: Justin Wong, Lap Chi, Mago, Gackt, Nekojita, Kazunoko, Itazan and more - Ultra Street Fighter 4 highlights

He's not the EVO 2014 champ. He may not have been the winner at Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show tournament. Neither is he the champ at the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Taito Arcade Japan National Finals, nor Taito Arcade's "B-est Cup" Japan Grand Finals.

But Bonchan was the runner-up at all of those tournaments. Plus he's the champion at Thaiger Uppercut 2014.

That puts him at just 44 points shy of 900 ranking points in the Capcom Pro Tour -- but I'm quite confident that Bonchan is a Super Saiyan 3 (SSJ3) class Sagat player, whose power level is over 9,000.

This man deserves a Tiger (Beer -- it's a leading premium brew from Singapore). Also: he deserves a spotlight reel highlighting some of his greatest moments in recent tournament history.

And that's exactly what vid maker The Beast has brought us this morning. Check it out below.

Mike Ross shares who he feels are the best/worst characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Earlier in the week, the people's champ spoke with us about his TFC performance and his days as a competitive player. Tonight, however, we have a special treat: Mike Ross tells us who he feels are the best/worst characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Although there are a few characters on this list that may not surprise you, Ross does have a number of interesting picks sitting among his selection.

We've already heard from Ross on Twitter that Dee Jay is the worst character in the game, and this wouldn't be a "best characters" list if Evil Ryu didn't make the cut. Still, Mike chose quite a few fighters that he thinks are solid in USF4, and some that he feels aren't so hot.

We don't want to give too much away, so go ahead and hit that jump to find out the rest!

'Street Fighter: World Warrior' will feature the entire roster of characters, win signed photos from the SF:AF crew

EventHubs correspondent Jason24cf brings us more of his New York Comic Con coverage today. This time, we get an exclusive interview with the folks behind Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist.

Jason caught up with Joey Ansah, the creator of SF:AF, along with Gaku Space, Akira Koieyama, and Mike Moh -- the actors who played Gouki, Gouken, and Ryu, respectively, in the series. Towards the end of the interview, Ansah stated that their new Street Fighter project, Street Fighter: World Warrior, will not only feature characters from the classic fighting title of the same name, but will actually incorporate the entire roster.

"We're not planning to just do a series focusing just on Guile or Chun-Li; it's going to have the whole roster."

Additionally, Jason managed to score some awesome Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist photos from the event (shown below) that are signed by the guys themselves. We are giving these away to a handful of lucky readers, so if you'd like a chance at winning be sure to follow both Jason24cf and EventHubs on Twitter.

Super Arcade donating Friday Night Console Casuals' proceeds to PushaTee's family - live stream set for tonight

Earlier this morning, Terrance "PushaTee" Moore passed away after collapsing at the Super Arcade weekly, The Runback. This news was incredibly tragic, and the FGC has not hesitated in showing their love and support for our dearly departed.

A donation drive has been setup on YouCaring, and Super Arcade is also hosting an event to raise funds this evening. The money raised will go to PushaTee's family.

The Friday Night Console Casuals event -- an event in which players can drop by and play a variety of games all night for one minimal entrance fee -- will be devoted to honoring the SoCal KI player. All proceeds from wristband sales will be donated to PushaTee's family.

Wristbands will run you $5, and if you can't make it to the event in person, Super Arcade will be streaming the action live from Walnut, California. Friday Night Console Casuals is currently underway and is set to run until 3 a.m. PST.

Be sure to stop by Super Arcade tonight to show your support, or tune into the stream below (which will be going live later tonight).

Which Quan Chi is the meanest of them all? Aesthetics for Sorcerer, Warlock, Summoner variations in Mortal Kombat X compared

NetherRealm Studios has released a batch of visuals that depicts and compares the aesthetic differences between all three variations of Quan Chi in Mortal Kombat X.

The character was first announced and shown off in a character introduction trailer a little more than two weeks ago. Although it gave us a good look at the various special moves and play styles usable by each of the three variations, as far as aesthetics are concerned these stills do a far greater job at highlighting the differences visually.

Mortal Kombat X is due for release on the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms on April 14, 2015. Gamers who pre-order a copy of the game will receive Goro as a bonus character free-of-charge.

Tarezou (Adon) takes down Team Mad Catz single-handedly - Taito Arcade Nationals 3v3 USF4 Tournament YouTube match archives

Many great battles were played at the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Taito Arcade Japan National Finals held in Shinjuku, Tokyo last Satruday.

The big story of that day, of course, was Nishikin's (Blanka) triumphant victory over Kazunoko (Yun) and Bonchan (Sagat) to clinch a much-coveted qualifying spot into the Capcom Cup 2014 finals in San Francisco this December. That was quite the upset.

But it wasn't the only upset; just as amazing is Shikkari Dynamic's victory over Team Mad Catz in the grand finals of the 3v3 single elimination team tournament. Adon player Tarezou from Shikkari Dynamic (which loosely translates to "Properly Dynamic") pulled off an unbelievable one-character victory (OCV) against Team Mad Catz.

Even Mad Catz's very own Zhi was in disbelief. Team Mad Catz leader MCZ|Daigo had, after all, obliterated AVM|Gamerbee when the two played in the grand finals of the Taiwan leg of Capcom Pro Tour Asia.

To dismantle not only Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, but also his teammates MCZ|Mago and MCZ|Tokido with a character whose match-up all three of them are no doubt keenly familiar with, is quite the feat.

And you can now watch the entirety of that coup, as well as all of the 3v3 matches that day, in the video embedded below from the Capcom Fighters YouTube channel.

Mr. Game & Watch can kill Zelda at 0% with a down-throw combo, low-profile crouch goes under forward Smash - Super Smash Bros. 3DS tech

He may be a low-tier character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean that Mr. Game & Watch hasn't got any cool tech for you to take advantage of.

In fact, it the right hands, and versus the right opponent, Mr. Game & Watch could be an absolute killer. For instance, against Zelda, if you've managed to collect three Djinn's Fire projectiles with Mr Game & Watch's bucket, a single down throw into Oil Spill combo could send her flying away into the Smash zones -- even at 0% damage, as you'll see in this video from My Smash Corner..

Of course, it wouldn't be any good if this tech was only applicable to Zelda. And thankfully, it's not. While you may not be able to finish off most of the roster with this exact same combo at 0% damage, you will be able to get quite a lot of guaranteed damage off of a down throw. My Smash Corner has included a list of guaranteed follow-up options that you can take advantage of, depending on the percentage level of your opponent.

The tutorial is pretty comprehensive; check it out below.

Leak: Super Smash Bros. Wii U will have Master Hand and Crazy Hand event challenges, create-a-stage and board game modes

The cat is out of the bag! As it turns out, the new mode for Super Smash Bros. Wii U that Nintendo had been teasing does not appear to be one where you'll gain direct control of Crazy Hand or Master Hand.

Instead, it appears to be an event mode of sorts, where you'll be "competing in challenges crafted by Master Hand and Crazy Hand", according to an accidental slip-up in the description for the game on Amazon.

But that's not all; according to the same product description, the Wii U version of Smash 4 will also allow you to create custom stages on your Wii U gamepad, and outwit your opponents "in a brand new board game mode".

When will we get to see more 'Omega Edition' Ultra Street Fighter 4 change log videos? Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano finally tells us

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the Omega Edition mode for Ultra Street Fighter 4, first announced back at the Tokyo Game Show last month.

Sure, the Capcom Cup 2014 trailer did give us an itsy bitsy peak at some of the awesome changes that will be made to Balrog -- but that's barely anything.

Besides, as some of you noted in the comments previously, Balrog is still one of the original eight Street Fighter 2 world warriors. Just when exactly are we going to see and hear about the changes made to, well, you know, the other 36 exciting playable characters? There's more to USF4 than SF2 characters, Capcom!

That's been the question on many of your minds (and on mine, too) since TGS. Today, Capcom's Assistant Producer for USF4 Tomoaki Ayano finally has some answers for us on that front.

Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore from the Killer Instinct community has passed away today; SuperArcade, R/Kappa, Grimmmz organizing donation drives

Eight hours ago, Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore, an active player in SoCal's Killer Instinct scene, tweeted that he would be going up to play on stream next at Level Up's The Runback weekly tournament series. He was very excited to be playing at the tournament, and had rushed down from work to attend it.

Later that night, however, PushaTee collapsed at the event, prompting the organizers to call for an ambulance immediately. Paramedics soon arrived on the scene to take him to the emergency ward.

We're hearing reports from multiple accounts (Markman23, Jebailey, Dieminion) this morning that the paramedics did their best, and that PushaTee has passed on.

All of the staffers here at EventHubs would like to express our condolences to PushaTee's friends and family. Please leave some kind words for the dearly departed in the comments below, in memory of him, if you can.

Grimmmz, a close friend of PushaTee, has made a tribute video in memory of the KI player, which you can check out below.

Is NuckleDu the world's best Decapre player right now? Tricky resets, solid frame traps, game-winning overheads - Ultra Street Fighter 4 highlights

EG|K-Brad and Uryo may have been the first Decapre masters to break down the Shadaloo assassin's game plan for the rest of us in their handy quick-start tutorials for learning the character.

But when it comes to the title of "best Decapre player in the world", at the moment NuckleDu -- who is no longer with Black Triangles as the sponsorship agreement was not a long-term deal -- may very well take the crown. Even over EG|K-Brad and Uryo.

Or at least, that's the vibe I got when I watched The Beast's NuckleDu Decapre highlights compilation video, in which the California-based player pulls off solid frame trap after another, tricky Scramble mix-ups, game-winning overheads, and even a perfect round on Smug.

Regardless if NuckleDu is indeed the best Decapre in the world or not, watching him play has made me want to pick up the character again, that's for sure.

While a lot of us may not have been initially happy to learn that the Cammy clone is the 5th new character in Ultra Street Fighter 4, after seeing all of NuckleDu's tricks with the character, I'm really glad that Capcom put her in now.

See if you agree.
