Guy teleports after absorbing a hit, Dan gets a pushblock: USF4 Omega Mode changes for the Street Fighter Alpha characters

Capcom has just gone live with another blog post detailing more Omega Mode changes in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Tonight's batch focuses on the Street Fighrer Alpha characters, which includes Sakura, Gen, Rose, Dan, Guy, Cody, Adon, and Rolento.

Guy can now teleport behind an opponent after absorbing a hit. Dan has a pushblock, but instead of sending the opponent away, he retreats. There are all kinds of wacky changes this time around, so be sure to check them out.

Below are a couple of previews to get you started.

Guy

Utsusemi: They say a picture is worth a thousand words...

Got it? Yep, Guy gets his very own Kawarimi no Jutsu! It’s got armor on startup, and as you absorb a hit Guy will teleport to the other side of the opponent. This is good for setting up combo opportunities, and can be used in place of the Focus Attack.

Capcom to fix Yun Summer Vacation costume glitch in next USF4 update, costume/taunt combination banned at Capcom Cup

Just a few days ago, a strange glitch for Yun in Ultra Street Fighter 4 was discovered. When players selected the character's Summer Vacation costume in conjunction with this taunt #10, the ability to properly taunt was disabled and instead, Yun would perform a standing light kick.

Because of this anomaly, players began to experiment, and it wasn't long before a number of interesting results emerged. Over the past few days, Yun was given a parry, the ability to boost player points for players, and also received an option select that cancels into a standing medium punch, (courtesy of BCN|Alioune).

Capcom is fully aware that this taunt glitch exists, and in Ayano's latest blog -- the same that detailed the new Omega Mode changes you see below -- the producer states that the abnormality is set to be patched out in the next Ultra Street Fighter 4 update. A release date for the next update has not yet been decided, but we should have more information soon.

Not only that, but if any of the Capcom Cup qualifiers were hoping to take advantage of the new techniques Yun gained as a result of this glitch, they will be sad to hear that the costume/taunt combination are officially banned from use at the upcoming event.

You can read exactly what Ayano had to say below.

Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late gets North American release on February 24

Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late rose to popularity back in July when it saw a PlayStation 3 release in Japan. Although the game is only available overseas, stateside players managed to get their hands on the 2D fighting title by creating foreign PSN accounts.

Now it seems that those who aren't interested in generating alternate accounts, yet still want to play UNIEL, won't have to wait too long for an official North American release. Aksys Games announced today that Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late will become available in this region on February 24th, 2015.

According to the post on their website, the NA version of UNIEL will not be region locked, so players will have the opportunity to play against others across the world.

If you're new to the game and would like to find out where each character stacks up against the rest, be sure to visit out Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late tiers section here on EventHubs. As always, we encourage those experienced with UNIEL to jump in and cast votes on character match-ups.

Two Jack Nicholson heads? The boots are back? Who the Hell is Ed Boon hinting at for Mortal Kombat X?!

The cantankerous Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios is at it once again.

Just a few moments ago, the Mortal Kombat creator took to his official Twitter account to tweet out yet another teaser for potential characters set to appear in the upcoming fighter, Mortal Kombat X. This time, Boon brings back the boots teaser image, but adds what appears to be two caricatures of actor Jack Nicholson's head beneath two of the feet shown.

You can check out the tease below.

At this point, I have no idea where Boon is going with this teaser. Jax, perhaps? I mean, there are two Jacks there, technically. I don't know.

Let us know which MK character the NRS rep is hinting at here in the comments below. You can also check out the original tweet after the jump.

Ghost Rider has a blazing 67 hit combo, 138 hits when used in conjunction with Dante – Witness the stunt motorcyclist's potential in UMvC3

Ghost Rider might not be seen too often at the highest levels of competition in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, but that doesn't mean the character can't net some impressive combos.

Using his chain, he's able to keep extending his hits even from half screen away or pull his opponent back to him just when the combo potential seems exhausted. This leads to some impressive work by HT MrFlubbs. When combined with already high combo characters like Dante, some extremely high numbers start to be hit.

Check out the video below to watch Johnny Blaze light his opponents up.

The character that wins the least in Smash Bros. 3DS is... Little Mac!? 'People...all rush to use him only to get pummeled in return,' says Sakurai

When Super Smash Bros. for 3DS released earlier this year, one name rose to the top in the thousands of voices complaining about various characters: Little Mac. Though most professional players wouldn't put the boxer in a Top 5 list, his straight forward and powerful move set made him an extremely popular choice in online play, so much so that gaming outlets like Kotaku have written a multitude of articles about him.

But now new light has come to shine onto the boxing ring of Little Mac, and what it shows is not good. Apparently, he has the lowest win ratio of all the characters. Sakurai elaborated in the latest Weekly Famitsu by stating, "For Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the individual character win ratios lined up in a staircase format, but [for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS] one fighter has a significantly low ratio. It's Little Mac."

Why does a character that not too long ago had many crying out for nerfs sit at the bottom of the win ratio list?

Read below to find out Sakurai's theory.

Sci actually makes Dee Jay look strong against Dieminion, -R- hits so many sick whiff punishes - USF4 replays also ft. Smug, Air, and more

Tonight, we have a set of remarkable Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches for you to check out thanks to frequent replay uploader YogaFlame24.

The two bouts that get our GIF treatment this time feature the following match-ups: -R- (Balrog) vs. ELECTRIBE MX2 (Guy) and PIE|Sci (Dee Jay) vs. Dieminion (Yang).

Right off the bat, -R- scores three big whiff punishes on ELECTRIBE MX2. In the following round, the Balrog player manages to hit a few more with surgical precision. ELECTRIBE, however, gets his revenge in the third round. (Watch out for the big combo.)

Additionally, Sci not only puts up a fight as Dee Jay -- who is known for being one of the weakest characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4 -- but actually makes the character look much stronger than he really is, and against Dieminion no less! Watch as Sci pins the Yang player in the corner after setting up a perfectly timed safe jump.

There are also matches featuring such players as PIE|Smug, CCG|Air, FuR|Gagapa, and more. You can view each of the matches in their entirety below.
