Tiers for King of Fighters 13

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

If you're curious about the repercussions of the -5 on block change to all Dragon Punch-type moves in Ultra Street Fighter 4, Carnoustie put together a clip examining what this may mean for the new game.

He shows that after a DP FADC setup, characters will be punishable by a crouching light move, and for some fighters who have 5 frame or faster attacks, the punishes could be much more severe.

You can find the clip after the break which examines this change.

Dieminion: 'Guile is looking really good for USF4; the mix of character balance and system changes gives him a brand new play-style'

Earlier this morning, EG|PR Balrog hit the Twitter-verse to explain some of the faults his main Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 character bears, and expressed his dislike for the changes Balrog will receive in Ultra Street Fighter 4. On the other end of the spectrum, Empire Arcadia's own Kevin "Dieminion" Landon also took to Twitter, but instead, he discussed the numerous benefits Guile will receive once USF4 drops.

It is clear as day that the Guile specialist is quite pleased with the Ultra Street Fighter 4 changes that Capcom has implemented upon his character. "Guile is looking really good for USF4! The mix of character balance and system changes gives him a brand new play-style," Landon explained.

Kevin went on to give examples of why he feels Guile will be that much stronger in Ultra. With Shoryukens (Dragon Punches) being -5 after an FADC - dash forward, Dieminion points out that Guile can score a full Flash Explosion (Ultra 1) punish for 450 damage, making his U1 much more viable than it's ever been.

This is only one of the juicy bits of information Dieminion dropped regarding Guile in Ultra Street Fighter 4. To save you the trouble of rummaging through Twitter, however, we here at EventHubs have compiled the rest of Dieminion's notes, and you can find everything after the jump.

El Gato breaks Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 again! New snapback glitch discovered, makes for some very strange occurrences

NL|El Gato, a frequent Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 content creator, recently discovered a variation of the snapback glitch, that which snaps out a downed fighter and brings in the remaining two characters simultaneously.

This new glitch can only be recreated using characters that have a cinematic hyper combo, (except for Viewtiful Joe's Slow hyper combo and Amaterasu's level 3.) The original glitch was triggered by snapping in the second assist character, but in this one uses a snapback on the first assist.

Once that character jumps back on screen, if they perform a cinematic hyper combo on the aggressor, some... strange things take place. This video shows which of the Capcom side of characters can pull this off, and El Gato is already working on getting the Marvel side done.

You'll find the glitch video after the break.

Job "Flocker" Figueroa, one of the best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players on the scene today, announced via Twitter that he is no longer a part of team Empire Arcadia. This makes Flocker a free agent, and eligible to be picked up by any other teams that sponsor fighting gamers.

Additionally, Dexter 'Tampa Bison' James, best known for his success in Street Fighter X Tekken, also announced his departure from EMP earlier this week.

Ayano: Hugo, Poison, Rolento and Elena's hit/hurtboxes have 'changed in all instances' since SFxT - discusses their transition into USF4

In a recent Siliconera interview, Ultra Street Fighter 4 assistant producer Tomoaki Ayano talked a bit about how the four Street Fighter X Tekken characters, (Hugo, Rolento, Elena, and Poison), that will be playable in the upcoming SF4 series update, transitioned into the world of USF4.

Ayano begins by mentioning some of the more obvious changes made to these fighters, such as the addition of a super and ultra combo. He goes on to say that since Street Fighter X Tekken focused heavily on juggle combos, many of these characters' moves have been adjusted to fit the parameters of Ultra Street Fighter 4's combo system.

What's very interesting is that although the in-game character models of these returning combatants look very much alike across both games, according to Ayano, the hitboxes/hurtboxes have been completely overhauled. "Getting more technical, the whole method by which hit boxes and hurt boxes are applied and adjusted differs between SFXT and SFIV, so those have been changed in all instances, whether a character is standing, crouching, or jumping, etc.,” Ayano said.

Rolento, Poison and Elena's English USF4 move lists now live, check them out exclusively on EventHubs; Fulgore moves and stats page also added

Ultra Street Fighter 4's release draws ever nearer, and as the weeks go by, more information continues to be unveiled. Earlier this week, the USF4 Nesica website added Japanese move listings for Rolento, Poison, and Elena.

Luckily, the EventHubs translation team, (which consists of fewer people than you may think), has already cracked the code and provided for us the English translations of these move lists. We have added all three characters' command lists to our Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 guide index, so you can look them over a few months before we get a stateside release.

Hugo and Decapre's move lists have not yet been made available, unfortunately, but you can rest assured that we'll have them up shortly after the Japanese versions go live. Thanks to the EventHubs team, the guides we have for you today are the first English Ultra Street Fighter 4 move lists that we've seen.

Additionally, Fulgore's full move listing has been added to our Killer Instinct guide index. Not only that, but a stats page for season 1's final character is live, and you can now select Fulgore as your main, secondary, or tertiary character in your EventHubs profile.

'Balrog has no good changes in Ultra Street Fighter 4; I have to change' - PR Balrog looking to drop Boxer soon

After suffering losses to players such as MCZ|Daigo, Bonchan, and RZR|Xian in the Topanga World League this week, it seems Eduardo "EG|PR Balrog" Pérez is looking to drop his namesake Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 character soon. Pérez is easily the most accomplished Street Fighter 4 series Balrog player to date, and numerous tweets from the Evil Genius are definitely indicating an impending character switch.

Although some may think that PR 'Rog is just upset at the moment and venting via the social media outlet, this may not be the exact case as he does provide some very solid points regarding why he may be dropping Boxer. Eduardo states that he cannot win with Balrog in long sets due to the character's linear play-style and a lack of mix ups.

When asked if he'd drop Balrog after 6 years of competitive use, Pérez seemed quite sure of himself, replying, "he's no threat anymore, so yes."

Tournament news roundup: Capcom explains how Pro Tour online registration works; Injustice added to MLG Anaheim, $7,500 up for grabs

This week we were hit with two important bits of information regarding major fighting game events. So, for convenience's sake, we thought we'd group them together, and give you all the 4-1-1 on what's going down. (Is 4-1-1 still a thing?)

First off, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas took to the Capcom Unity blog to explain exactly how the Street Fighter Online Series tournament registration works. In case you missed it, Virgin Gaming made the online tournament sign ups and qualifying matches live earlier this week.

Combofiend clarifies that once a tournament qualification period goes live, it's a race to fill up the bracket. Players must win three qualification matches in a row in order to secure a spot on the double elimination bracket.

The qualifying matches can be played any time up until April 15th, but once the 16 spots on the bracket are filled, the qualifying period ends. If you keep getting sent back to the landing page when trying to sign up, it's because the bracket has already been filled.

The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 brackets are already full in the US and Europe, however, there still may be some available slots in Latin America.

Hit the jump to read about Injustice's addition to the MLG Anaheim line-up. .
