Tiers for Ultra Street Fighter 4 Tiers for Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Five features Street Fighter 5 must have to be successful

Before we get into this there's something I'd like to set straight right away. This is an opinion so please keep that in mind while you're reading and discussing/debating. Thank you.

Our friends over at Denkiphile have compiled a list of things that they feel are musts if SF5 is to flourish to its full potential. There's a lot of speculation as to how the new game will run and what the mechanics will be like. From super combos to red focus, every iteration of Street Fighter has seen some kind of new addition in its game play.

The first necessary addition to SF5 on Denkiphile's is:

Some Characters from Street Fighter II:

"This is one of the key things that made Street Fighter IV so appealing – the return of the original eight world warriors alongside. Let’s not forget the abysmal popularity of Street Fighter III. Hell, a lot of people didn’t even know it existed! It is crucial to include a portion of the cast as to not alienate age-old fans once again. However, that was also one of the biggest disappointments with Street Fighter IV – the reliance on these characters to bring back the old fans. Think about how many brand new characters Street Fighter IV brought into the franchise.

There were only five originally: Abel, C. Viper, El Fuerte, and Rufus. Seth wasn’t even playable in the beginning! I would like to think that Street Fighter IV was only the beginning and set the stage for Street Fighter V. It provided the series a chance to be in the spotlight again and take some more risks by bringing in new, interesting characters. If the game again includes all the Street Fighter II characters, that would essentially make Street Fighter V a next-gen Street Fighter IV. I’m risking a hemorrhage just from thinking about that."

Jab into ultra, anti-air-tatsu super, amazing combos and reads - French Balrog player Pacheco has it all in this highlight reel

If you're anything like me, you don't really know who Pacheco is. Thanks to this video, however, it's now a name I will not be forgetting anytime soon.

While Balrog is a pretty straightforward character, I'm sure we've all experienced moments where we've been wowed by fantastic play from EG|PR Balrog. Perhaps this highlight reel will wow you in similar ways, as the french Balrog master puts everything out there in amazing display throughout these matches, including a combo ending in a standing jab into Ultra 1.

Curious? Look no further than after the jump.

When mountains collide - Justin Wong and Andreas fight it out to prove who's the best Rufus in this first-to-3 offstream match from Red Fight District

If you thought that America was the only place with strong Rufus play, you'd best think again. Englishman Andreas has been showing his fellow Europeans what's what for years now, and in this off-stream first-to-3 set from Red Fight District, which took place in Amsterdam earlier this fall, he goes up against one of America's premiere Rufus players, EG|Justin Wong.

The Rufus mirror isn't something you see all too often without the EG tag attached to both players, so it's exciting to see a somewhat different style of Rufus take on Justin. Which of these two beasts comes out on top? You can find the match right below and find out.

PR Balrog: I feel like I'm still learning how to be a pro player, but I'll reach my prime soon - amazing mini-documentary follows one of EG's best

Eduardo "PR Balrog" Perez is a household name in the fighting game community. He's one of the most accomplished and talented players in the business, and his sponsor, Evil Geniuses, alongside Monster Energy Drinks, has put together an excellent mini-documentary that follows PR Rog's trip to EVO 2014 and shares a bit of his humble origins.

We learn how Eduardo got his start in gaming, hear from his incredibly insightful parents, and we're even granted quite a bit of behind-the-scenes footage of the EG boys during their training sessions.

At one point in the documentary, Perez mentions that he feels he is still learning how to become a pro player. "Right now, I feel like I'm still learning, myself, how to train how to be a pro player," Eduardo explains. "So, I feel that after I learn, I might be able to get that win. I'm still in the learning process, but I feel like I'm going to reach my prime soon."

This video is 18 minutes well spent. It's a must-watch for anyone who is a fan of PR Rog, the fighting game community, or for aspiring players who also have a strong competitive spirit.

So many Rocket Punches... Watch RayRay's Sentinel score insane comebacks on ComboFiend, ChrisG, Yipes, and more in UMvC3

Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 5 have been the talk of the town as of late, but we wanted to remind folks that there are some truly lethal players out there in other games, such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Because of this, we share with you a compilation of clips sent to us earlier today that features a number of incredible comebacks made by CTRL|RayRay.

What's most impressive about these comebacks is the fact that RayRay isn't making them with a full squad of characters. Oh no! Ray battles back from the brink of KO in all of these clips using only his Sentinel.

You'll see a variety of top-level players fall at the mechanical hands of RayRay's Sentinel here, including ComboFiend, NYChrisG, IFC Yipes, and many others.

Stop missing out on damage! Bafael releases a fantastic guide about optimizing Poison in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Are you jumping to what seems most natural when playing Poison? It's easy to assume that crouching, heavy punch is the best anti-air option, but Bafael shows that there are better. In fact, he ends up correcting plenty of bad Poison habits he sees players making.

For example, did you know that close short is the only light normal Poison has that links into crouch fierce a two frame link into far medium kick? It also chains from crouch short, so it's a true block string.

This is just a smidgen of information included in both the video and written tutorial included with Bafael's comprehensive footage. If you've ever wanted to take your Poison to the next level, his guide is absolutely crucial.

Updated: Harada says Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe will not be coming to U.S., game designer feels he's trolling for publicity

Update: Despite more Tweets from Harada questioning Chloe's stateside release, Michael Murray, a game designer for Namco Bandai, has stated that Harada is only "trolling".

A loud minority in the gaming community has made the news and caused change for all the wrong reasons. Due to Western backlash over Tekken 7's newest character, "Lucky Chloe" might never see Western shores.

The character uniquely dons a somewhat cutesy, pink jacket that includes paws. Her headphones seem to mirror those of Super Sonico, a popular mascot character for software company Nitroplus. Despite Tekken housing some of the most wild and outlandish characters in fighting games, some fans were not afraid to take to their favorite place to sound off about how their Tekken 7 experience has been ruined by her existence: the internet.

Read below to find out Harada's response and to get his thoughts on what the stereotypical Western fan wants in their fighting game.
