'Unintentional nerfs mean nothing!' Decapre's Ultra 2 after level 1 focus attack juggle, Spiral Arrow, Psycho Sting and more in this USF4 CMV

After the August 8th Ultra Street Fighter 4 update, Decapre suffered some unintentional nerfs making it so that her Psycho Sting and anti-air DCM (Ultra 2) take 10 frames longer to charge. This resulted in certain combos being a bit more difficult to perform.

Saki put together a combo video, post-patch, that focuses on landing Decapre's anti-air DCM in a number of different ways. Many of these setups require very strict timing to pull off, and there are some truly impressive ones such as the DCM after a level 1 focus attack juggle.

There are also a few instances that show an instant ground DCM after a Red Focus crumple.

This video shows that even with the nerfs, which will be reverted soon, Decapre is still capable of hitting her Ultra 2 in combo.

Why you didn't tech that throw when you're sure you did: Your brain reorganized reality to create a delusion – this and more in gaming science

Have you ever felt like you teched a throw in time, but for some reason still ended up lying face down on the ground? How about that time you thought you caught Yun's dive with an anti-air, but instead ate a combo into his red focus?

The good news is your Xbox or PC is working fine. The bad news is your brain literally reordered the sequence of events so you'd believe you hit the button in time. The problem is your brain lies to you, blinds you from incoming attacks, and overall just loves betraying you.

These are just a few of the fun facts covered in "Your Brain Sucks at Video Games," a YouTube video teaching the science of losing at your favorite pastime.

Check below to watch the full video and find out all the ways your brain has lied to you.

Ammy causes Jill to shrink, Spider-Man and Spencer freeze Thor in place: This UMvC3 'Cross Assault' CMV features teams of two fighting simultaneously

Our friend Wolverine Master recently sent us one of the best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 combo videos I've seen in quite some time.

Utilizing the "Cross Assault" glitch, one that allows players to fight as two characters on screen simultaneously, Wolverine Master shows off how devastating teams of two could be if they were the norm in UMvC3.

Among the awesomeness that is the "Cross Assault" combos, we see a couple of interesting in-game glitches such as Thor getting frozen in place and Jill being shrunken down to the size of an ant.

Even though this stuff would never fly in an actual match, it is still astonishing to see the setups that become possible with two characters battling together on screen. There is some great Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 action here, so be sure to check it out below.

Oni transforms into a Super Saiyan, Akuma hits 4 far heavy kicks in one combo, and Yang glitches behind Decapre: RnK's latest USF4 combo video

The RnK Clan is back with a brand new Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video.

In this montage we see a myriad of impressive setups, some peculiar glitches, and more. There are a number of characters represented here, including Oni, Cody, Yang, Akuma, Decapre, Yun, Hugo, and a few others.

During Oni's combo, some nifty video editing tricks allow the powerful Shoto to actually transform into a Dragon Ball Z Super Saiyan. Although this obviously has no kind of in-game benefit, let's face it, it's just incredibly awesome.

Another thing to look out for in this video is Yang's combo on Decapre. The Arcade Edition twin hits an air reset on the Cammy clone, lands behind her, then somehow ends up right in front of her. It's a very strange sequence and happens quite fast, so keep your eyes peeled.

Blind player competes at Evolution, says, 'If you're playing me... don't hold back'

Polygon recently ran an article titled "Why Game Accessibility Matters." Part of the text discusses blind Mortal Kombat player Carlos Vasquez. A huge fan of the series at its release, Vasquez's vision slowly faded due to closed-angle glaucoma.

But that didn't stop him from becoming a tournament competitor at the game. "I decided to go back and start paying attention more to my hearing and kind of realizing, 'Hey, this game actually emphasizes every single hit as you play!'" While the sounds may have been for atmospheric effect, they actually gave Vasquez an auditory landscape to become a tournament challenger.

Read below to find out how far this fighter was able to go on sound alone at Evolution 2014.
