U1 twice in one combo, cr. HP straight into U2, and a godlike combo using stun: This Decapre CMV by cjbqulix is awesome

Cjbqulix is one of the most active Ultra Street Fighter 4 content creators around today. Focusing mainly on combo videos, the compilations that are uploaded on to this YouTube channel are top notch.

Today's feature keeps with that motif and stars the vicious Ultra Street Fighter 4 newcomer -- Decapre.

There are a number of intricate setups here, including a combo that lands two of her Ultra 1 in one sequence, a combo that goes from crouching heavy punch straight into Ultra 2, and a combo that makes very interesting use of stun.

Devil Jin now a playable character in Tekken 7 arcade, nearly 30 minutes of footage featuring the returning fighter

This week, the Japanese arcade release of Tekken 7 has received a new playable fighter.

As of today, Devil Jin can now be selected in-game. Fans who currently have access to Tekken 7 have wasted no time posting footage of the returning fighter online, and today we have nearly 30 minutes of Devil Jin gameplay.

Last week, Jin Kazama was added to the playable roster after only being included in-game as a secret sub-boss character. This week, we've got Devil Jin, and Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada previously stated that the next character, Josie Rizal, was originally schedule to release during Japan's Golden Week holiday (the first week of May), however, that release window has still yet to be confirmed by Bandai Namco.

Until the next character drops, though, be sure to watch the footage of Devil Jin running through arcade mode in Tekken 7.

Harada: 'Good netcode? There's no such code that automatically makes the latency issues go away' - Tekken 7's low-lag techniques explained

Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tekken series has routinely featured some of the best online play experiences in fighting games ever. In terms of latency management, the implementation in Tekken titles is quite possibly the best-in-class.

But what's the secret to that buttery-smooth, online play experience in the latest Tekken titles? What kind of ancient ritual did the Tekken Project development team have to perform in order to achieve that level of low-lag performance? And how many cute little kittens were sacrificed in the process?

The answer to that last question? None. (Tekken Project lead Katsuhiro Harada is an animal lover, and owns a pet dog which he calls Heihachi-kun; he'd jump in to save the kittens before anything untimely could happen to them).

Latency management in fighting games is a science, Harada tells Famitsu in an interview the Japanese games publication recently conducted.

It's not something that developers can bring about through ancient sorcery or by writing "really good netcode" -- something Harada akin to voodoo magic.

Read on to find out why.

Updated: The event has ended now, but we've tossed a stream archive into this story so you can check it out still.

It looks like a surprise Mortal Kombat X live stream is taking place today over on PlayStationLATAM.

Community specialist at NetherRealm Studios, Tyler Lansdown, will be at the helm of this live broadcast.

Although it is currently unclear what is scheduled to be shown off today, with Tyler in attendance there's a fairly good chance we'll see some more character breakdowns. At the very least, we will witness more Mortal Kombat X gameplay footage before the game hits stores next week.

Which characters should be added to Super Smash Bros. 4 as DLC? The EventHubs team shares their votes!

During the Nintendo Direct that aired last week, Nintendo revealed the official release date for Mewtwo and introduced Lucas into the Super Smash Bros. 4 world.

While getting two DLC characters in Smash is great, it appears that the company may not be stopping there. They have since asked fans which characters they'd like to see added to the playable roster and have even opened up a special website at which you can vote for whichever fighter you think should be added down the road.

We here at EventHubs are all big fans of the Smash Bros. franchise, so it didn't take us long to jump in and cast votes of our own. Today, we have decided to share our picks with you, our readers, and explain why we feel our characters of choice should be considered.

Hisako can Ultra forever in Killer Instinct season 2 and it's incredibly easy to do - watch her land 500+ hits on TJ Combo

Killer Instinct's latest character, Hisako, is officially out and in the hands of players everywhere. While the last update added new balance changes, costumes, and the character herself, of course, it seems that it may have also introduced a glitch involving Hisako's Ultra.

Hisako can land an infinite number of Ultra combos in Killer Instinct season 2, and it is incredibly easy to do.

During the latter portion of her Ultra combo, Hisako hits the opponent with a large naginata strike, sending them stumbling forward. During this time, if you try to hit an Ultra Ender, the attack will whiff, leaving the opponent stuck in that stumbling state for a couple of seconds. This gives Hisako time to recover from the whiffed Ultra Ender, hit a Shadow On Ryo Zan, and launch right back into another Ultra.

This can be repeated forever, and if you decide to do this in an actual match, it'll surely leave your opponent very salty. Having said that, it is clear that the developers did not intend for this technique to work as it does. Melon God, the person who discovered the bug, has already posted this over on the Ultra-Combo forum to inform the devs about its inclusion in the game.

Check out Hisako's infinite Ultras below.

Daigo negates Decapre's Ultra 1, GamerBee knocks Bonchan silly, R.O.B. gimps Fox and more - NCR 2015 final day highlights

The NorCal Regionals 2015 tournament has finished up, and like many FGC events, there was plenty of drama to go around.

We wanted to highlight some of the epic plays that happened on finals day though, starting with the man of the hour, Daigo Umehara, up against young gun, NuckleDu.

MCZ|Daigo vs. Liquid|NuckleDu

This match started off with NuckleDu playing Decapre, and having a bit of success, but with Daigo managing to come up with some killer plays, like chasing down her backdash for a ridiculous punish to take a close round, and more.

Daigo even had an interesting counter to Decapre's ultra 1, which has a considerable amount of hits it can absorb from projectiles, as he challenged it with Evil Ryu's fireballs to mostly negate it, which we show in our first highlight below.

NuckleDu came back though after losing the first two games with his Guile, making an solid run, primarily on countering Evil Ryu's fireballs, which is our second highlight below.

Alas, it wasn't enough, as Umehara came storming through to close out the set, and advance into grand finals, which is shown in our third highlight.

NorCal Regionals 2015 top 16 Ultra Street Fighter 4 tourney runs back four matches after wrong version was used

After four matches at the NorCal Regionals 2015 tournament for Ultra Street Fighter 4 were played in the top 16, the fifth match started between EG|Ricky Ortiz's Chun-Li and Snake Eyez's Zangief.

The players noticed that Zangief's Light Punch green hand was traveling at its 1.03 distance, which was reduced considerably in version 1.04.

The players notified the tournament organizer, Terry "Kineda" Ng, and the decision was made, by the Capcom Fighters staff, to run back the previous four matches that had already taken place.

These sets were: EG|Justin Wong vs. AVM|GamerBee, Kazunoko vs. Liquid|NuckleDu, MCZ|Daigo vs. 801 Strider and PIE|Smug vs. /r/Kappa Poongko.

If you're wondering how those matches shook out, before they were wiped away, we've provided a battle log, which was removed from our NCR coverage story, as by the tournament organizer's decision, those sets no longer counted.

Gootecks harnesses the power of the 'undead Kobe Bryant' - Excellent Adventures ep. 59 ft. NYChrisG: MENTAL DAMAGE!

The folks over at Cross Counter are back again with the first part of their new batch of Excellent Adventures featuring Tempo|NYChrisG.

Today we have episode #59 in which Mike Ross, Gootecks, and Chris showcase some interesting characters. We've all seen Chris play Yang, but have you ever seen him rock Abel? In this installment, he does just that, and interestingly enough he mentions that he learned how to play Abel from the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Street Fighter 4.

Gootecks and Mike also bring out some of their more peculiar alternate characters: Dhalsim and Blanka respectively. Watch as Gootecks uses the power of the "undead Kobe Byrant" and Mike uses "short, hop" to confuse his opponent into defeat.

Episode #59 can be viewed for free on YouTube today (you'll find it after the jump), but if you'd like to watch all four of the latest episodes now, be sure to head over to the Excellent Adventures website and purchase them.

Jax rips your head open and puts a cigar out on you, Jacqui lands a barrage of punches: Check out the Briggs' Fatalities and X-Ray attacks

Yesterday, the Mortal Kombat X All Access stream ran for roughly 5 full hours. We saw quite a few things for the first time here, including official Goro gameplay (including his Fatalities), more of MKX's Test Your Luck mode, and more.

During the broadcast, Jax and his daughter Jacqui also made an appearance, and for the first time ever we were shown their first Fatalities, in full, and their X-Ray attacks.

So, rather than have you sift through 5 hours of footage to find them, we've gone ahead and tracked the down for you. To start, we have Jacqui's X-Ray attack: a barrage of torso punches, followed by a devastating uppercut and finishing with a leaping punch to the spine.

Warning: These GIFs are graphic and not for the feint of heart.
