'France's top players are the same as 2-3 years ago, Europe overall has more talented players than the US' - Cuongster talks regions, SF5 and more

Just a few weeks ago, Cannes Winter Clash wrapped up, and a whole plethora of talented players attended the event.

Thankfully, I was at the event representing our site, and managed to grab many interviews with players, which we will be publishing daily for about the next two weeks.

Today, another of France's best, CDV|Cuongster, talks about . Here's a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: You originally played E. Honda, and now you're also playing Yun. I have to say, these two characters feel like complete opposites to me. What do you consider when picking a character, and how did you end up with two so different ones?

CDV|Cuongster: I started to play E. Honda in Vanilla because I liked the way he can easily defend using his normals. And, honestly, at the time I didn't really like Street Fighter 4 and just wanted to play competitively with an "easy character". I started using Yun in AE to counterpick matchups like Sagat, Dhalsim, Guile ... But I didn't really invest myself in the character that much, and didn't find his optimal way of being played.

I regret that a lot now, because I have a lot of fun playnig Yun now. I'm very dedicated to him now. We have a WhatsApp group with UM|RMZ from UK, DM|Kaiser from Singapore and a few good Yun players where we discuss a lot about Yun tech. When I pick a character, I like to be able to adapt them to as many matchups as possible. I also like to switch from a very defensive playstyle to a very aggressive one.

Capcom is location-testing a new Ultra Street Fighter 4 controller that's optimized for Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab

Okay, so maybe we're exaggerating a little when we say that Capcom is location-testing a new Ultra Street Fighter 4 controller that's optimized for Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab technique.

But it is true that they're currently holding location tests, from March 20 to 24, at the Shinjuku Taito Station for USF4 machines outfitted with a Hori six-button game pad on top of the standard joystick controls, and that the Hori pad controls are set up with a button configuration that makes performing Rufus's Focus Attack cancel into grab tech a cinch.

Here's what the controller, and its button configuration looks like. The last picture in the gallery shows Capcom's Assistant Producer for USF4 Tomoaki Ayano playing at Shinjuku Taito Station with a very special player title reserved exclusively for the makers of the game.

It's the same when I played Tekken, I picked Xiaoyu ... I guess that I always prefer the Chinese girls in fighting games, but I don't know why, haha.
