Daigo's Evil Ryu continues to hold #1 spot in Ultra Street Fighter 4 arcade, Mago cracks top 5 with Fei Long - latest top 10 Japan BP rankings

Kyosuke has updated the Ultra Street Fighter 4 arcade Japanese BP rankings once again, and quite a bit has changed since the May 26 update.

MCZ|Daigo's Evil Ryu remains the highest ranked player in the Ultra Street Fighter 4 arcades, however, as was reported by TokidoBlog a few days after May's update went live.

Below you'll find the top 10 in Japan's Ultra Street Fighter 4 arcade BP rankings, as of June 6, 2014.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will not be region-locked, according to Atlus; check out the game's pre-order goodies and new trailer here!

In a press release sent out by Atlus this morning the company announced that their upcoming 2D fighter, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, will not be region-locked. This means that players from other regions will be able to import the game from North America when it is released this Fall.

Since the European version of the original Persona 4 Arena was delayed several months after it dropped in the US, fans have been wondering if history may repeat itself. Siliconera reached out to the company, asking if European players would also be able to import the upcoming update. An Atlus representative responded, simply stating, "I believe so."

That's not all the good news for Persona fans, however. Those who pre-order the game, or get their hands on a first print, will receive a collectible Teddie bop bag and Set #1 of the Persona Tarot cards.

Kuroda (Hugo) vs. TM (Q) in SF3:3S, recounts the salty story behind Guilty Gear XX's 'Kuroda Combo', which was popularised by SBO winner Ogawa

Weekly Playboy News has published another instalment of their "Kuroda Throws Down the Gauntlet" column. In this latest entry, Kuroda (Hugo) takes on TM (Q) in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike.

In the interview part of the column, Kuroda recounts the days he spent playing the Guilty Gear series. He also shares a particularly salty story about how Ogawa, a top Guilty Gear XX player who happened to frequent the arcade Kuroda went to, had copied his play style and technique to win at Super Battle Opera 2005 -- or so he claims.

But that story has a bit of an interesting twist at the end.

Mortal Kombat X: Exclusive reveal for EVO 2014 on Saturday, right before Injustice finals

Mortal Kombat X's official unveiling at Sony's E3 press conference was one of the biggest moments at the annual video games trade show this year.

Over the course of the week-long convention we also got to learn more details about the game's brand new characters, such as Cassie Cage being the daughter between Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage.

And then, E3 2014 came to an end. "Until next time," NetherRealm Studios said.

Fortunately, if you're been dying to see more from Mortal Kombat X, well, hang on to your spinal cords and still-beating hearts for just a little longer; the official Facebook page for the series has just announced an exclusive reveal for EVO 2014 this Saturday.

Xiao Hai's Cammy and Evil Ryu are ready for EVO 2014; long sets against top Chinese players Pang Feilong (Hugo/Fei Long), Zong Shifan (Blanka)

At a pre-EVO roundtable discussion 4Gamer hosted last month, when the six Japanese pro players in attendance -- MCZ|Daigo, MCZ|Tokido, EG|Momochi, Bonchan, Kazunoko, RZR|Itabashi Zangief -- were asked to name a couple of players whom they did not wish to have to face at EVO 2014's USF4 tournament, Chinese player Xiaohai was the first name to be mentioned.

It's been a while since we've seen or heard anything from Xiaohai, who placed 4th at last year's tournament, but he has certainly made an impression. On these six Japanese players, at least.

During the roundtable discussion, the Japanese players went on to speculate that Xiaohai might possibly be playing Yun in this version, since he's known to be a player who always sticks with the top-tier characters, no matter what the game is.

Whether or not Xiaohai will indeed main Yun at this year's tournament, is something we'll have to wait till Friday morning, when the EVO 2014 USF4 pools begin, to find out.

In the meantime, however, it's worth noting that even if Xiaohai does end up picking Yun, that will not be the only character he has prepped for EVO. As these recent videos from a Chinese stream he made an appearance on shows, Xiaohai also has a Cammy and Evil Ryu in the bag, ready to go.

EventHubs readers feel no European player will make top 8 at this year's EVO in USF4, only a couple of North Americans will qualify

With EVO 2014 right around the corner, we here at EventHubs decided run a poll a few days back in order to score some predictions from our readers.

Because both the US and Europe have yet to claim the overall top prize in the SF4 tournament, we wanted to see how you all felt these regions' players will do this time around.

We set up two polls for each, asking our readers how many players from the US and Europe they felt will make it into the Ultra Street Fighter 4 top 8, and what place specifically they might make it to.

The votes are in, and the results show that EventHubs readers think that none of Europe's players will make it into top 8 at EVO this year, while two of the US' best will breach the top rankings. You can find all of the results below.

'Tier lists are important, but they should be used more as an informational resource' - Maximilian discusses how to properly use a tier list

Maximilian uploaded a video from his "Real Talk" series today that discusses a highly talked about topic in the fighting game community -- tier lists.

While many players use tier lists as the definitive word on which characters are the best/worst in any given game, Max feels a bit differently on the subject. He suggests that players should be using tier lists as more of an informational reference, and apply that knowledge to the best of their ability.

Max explains how match up numbers work, (i.e. 5-5, 6-4, 7-3, etc.), and really does a great job of breaking down tier lists for casual and hardcore players alike.

If you find yourself wanting to know how tier lists work, or just need a fresh perspective on the matter, then look no further.

'I originally picked Dan because I got him on random select' - world's best Dan says he's dissatisfied with USF4 - EventHubs exclusive Ixion interview

Today, we have an interview with the man who many consider to be the best Dan-player in the world, IND|Ixion, for all of our loyal readers.

In the interview, Ixion covers topics such as why he chose Dan out of all characters, his thoughts on the changes that have been made in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and more. Below, you'll find a snippet get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: With the recent launch of Ultra Street Fighter 4, everyone has their opinions on what's right and wrong with this new edition of the game. Having played it for a little more than a month now, what are your impressions about this latest entry of the Street Fighter 4 series?

IND|Ixion: To be honest, I don't like Ultra Street Fighter 4. I wouldn't say that I hate it, but it's pretty much on the verge of hate. As far as I'm concerned, Capcom has screwed us over. There was so much talk about reducing vortex and that "with these new balance changes, every character will have a fairer shot at winning". The vortex part I feel they owned up to, but I'm not feeling the latter aspect at all.

I might be biased since I play Dan, but seriously, Dan is even more undermined now than he used to be, and it's due to his lack of crucial buffs and the demerits of Delayed Wakeup. I feel like, as usual, things that were already good got even better, while a whole slew of meaningless moves stay meaningless. Moves got buffed and nerfed for absolutely no reason - for instance, Evil Ryu's crouching Medium Kick and Guile's Air Grab got better, while Sagat's High Tiger Shot got worse.

And still, there are tons of moves that nothing happened to... Like, for instance, Rose's close Heavy Punch. I don't get the point of that one. You'll always use crouching Heavy Punch because it's easier for your input AND it does more damage.

Another move that has almost no meaning in Ultra Street Fighter 4 is Cammy's crouching Heavy Punch. I understand the reduction of damage and stun, but for some dumb reason they reduced the hitstun of it too, so that the crouching Heavy Punch -> far Medium Punch link no longer works. I HATE when you remove fun combos that aren't even close to being overpowered, it just serves to make the character more boring. There are other ways to nerf a character, so things like this make me really irritated.

Honda wins over Zangief, Chun-Li, M. Bison, Ryu and Ken - Honda Fit car commercial parodies Street Fighter 2's Bonus Stage

If you consider yourself a fan of Street Fighter, then you're probably familiar with Street Fighter 2's bonus stage, where your chosen character is tasked with completely thrashing a brand new car as "a test of strength".

Whatever car that's supposed to be, it must be a pretty crappy vehicle for the world warriors to be okay with completely wrecking it.

if it were a beaut -- like, say, a 2015 Honda Fit -- then the world warriors couldn't possibly bear to tear it apart. Or at least, that appears to be the message these two Honda Fit X Street Fighter commercials that we've embedded below are driving at.
