Tiers for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Infiltration, K-Brad join Gootecks and Mike Ross for online madness - Excellent Adventures 2014 ep. 10

EG|K-Brad and Infiltration have joined forces with Gootecks and Mike Ross for the latest Excellent Adventures.

The foursome takes turns battling online players in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, and you get to see a good amount of character variety of hype moments with the guys.

Episode 10 is titled America, Online and you can view the entire 30 minute segment after the break.

Bringing the hype: Hyper Dragonball Z is a throwback to Capcom's 2D fighting games of the 1990s

What happens when you create a Dragonball Z game with MUGEN which is quite similar to Capcom fighters from the 1990s?

The answer comes in a ridiculously hype trailer with a ton of fan service.

Team Z2 is the group behind this project, and they've done an exceptional job recreating parts of the franchise in a style that 2D sprite fighting game fans should absolutely love.

The team currently has 5 characters and 11 stages available for fans to check out, and you can find their excellent trailer after the jump. Even if you're not a Dragonball Z fan, you should watch this, as the work they put into this trailer really shines through in its 5 minute run time.

'Makoto has become a character who can quickly KO opponents even mid-screen', Shirou explains Ultra Street Fighter 4's Makoto changes and playstyle

Similar to the earlier videos posted to taitochannel, a video has been released which features Japan's Shirou detailing how to use Makoto effectively, and what her changes in Ultra mean for her playstyle.

He brings up a lot of good points regarding how much stronger her mid-screen offense has gotten, and this just might be the revision Makoto needed to cover up her weak spots.

Hit the jump for the video and a translation of Shirou's opinions by EventHubs' very own MajinTenshinhan.

Daigo, Fuudo, Tokido and top notch Hakan player Ebi square off in SSF4 AE v2012 CR replays

If you didn't catch the live stream of the SSF4 AE v2012 CR tournament earlier today, you missed some excellent matches between MCZ|Daigo, MCZ|Tokido, RZR|Fuudo and a very strong Hakan player who goes by the name of Ebi@Baki-Zei.

Replays of the matches have now been uploaded to YouTube, so you can watch the exciting Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 sets between these players.

I highly recommend checking out Ebi's set against -R- as you don't get to see many Hakan's play at that high of a level.

Do you feel Ultra Street Fighter 4's early arcade release gives Japanese players an unfair advantage?

Earlier today Capcom announced that Japanese arcade gamers would get their hands on Ultra Street Fighter 4 on April 17, 2014.

An exact date for the console release of USF4 hasn't officially been unveiled, but Capcom has said multiple times that fans can expect it in early June 2014.

This creates about a month and a half to two month head start for gamers in Japan to get more familiar with the game, in preparation for tournaments and other big events.

As there's a considerable amount of money and bragging fights on the line for winning Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournaments, some players felt this was creating an unfair scenario for them and voiced their disapproval at these turn of events.

We wanted to gauge what the community's collective opinion on this subject was, so we've setup a poll which you can vote in after the break.

Virtua Fighter FeverCombo announced for Japan, comes out mid-April... it's an iOS/Android smartphone browser game

There's a new Virtua Fighter game coming out very soon (later this month) in Japan, and development work on it is even said to be supervised by the series creator Yu Suzuki himself.

But it isn't a sequel to Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. It's not even a fighting game.

Instead, Virtua Fighter FeverCombo (VFFC) is a smartphone browser game for iOS/Android devices, that reimagines the series's intense battles for a whole new generation of gamers. The game is published by Japanese video-on-demand giant, in partnership with Sega Corporation.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 goes into service in Japanese arcades April 17

The arcade version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 now has a final release date.

At the tail end of the Super Street Fighter 4 CR Edition launch commemoration event, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced that the highly-anticipated fighting game will go into service in Japanese arcades on April 17.

Decapre, the 5th new character to be introduced in Ultra Street Fighter 4, will not be playable in the arcade version of the game at first, as Capcom is still fine-tuning the character. She will be added to the roster of the arcade version at a later date, via an update patch.

On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be released first as a digital upgrade for owners of Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition 2012 in June. A full retail version of the game for PS3 and X360 will subsequently come out in August, alongside a PC release.

Ultra Street Fighter 4's Decapre, Elena, Dudley, and Akuma square off in a fresh batch of footage from Gamekult

Gamekult returns with more Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage, only this time, we have actual matches. Instead of focusing only on the 5th Ultra character, Decapre, here we have footage of the Cammy clone, along with Dudley, Elena, and Akuma.

Although the footage is recorded using the original Final Round 17 build of Ultra Street Fighter 4, we still get to see many of Decapre's moves and combos in action. Additionally, the other aforementioned characters have gone virtually unchanged since that build, (as far as we know), so we get to see what they currently look like in Ultra.

You'll find all three Ultra Street Fighter 4 match videos after the jump.

Readers feel Edition Select should not be tournament standard for Ultra Street Fighter 4

Earlier this month, we here at EventHubs ran a poll to see if our readers felt that Ultra Street Fighter 4's Edition Select should be used as the tournament standard in major events.

For those of you unfamiliar, Edition Select is an offline mode that will be included in USF4 that allows players to choose any version of their favorite characters, (i.e. Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, and Ultra Street Fighter 4).

The results of our poll are in, and it seems that the vast majority of those who voted feel Edition Select should not be used as the tournament standard.

Fast-paced action, slick choreography and daisy dukes: Dead or Alive characters face off in this live-action beach battle between Rig and Tina

Steering away from the traditional cosplay galleries we do, today we have a bit of a special treat for all you fans out there.

In the Dead or Alive series, the characters have some fairly realistic looking attributes in-game, but never have any two characters looked this life-like.

The folks over at Stone Mountain Stunts put together an excellent, real-life fight between DoA's Tina and Rig. The two engage in a smoothly choreographed battle on the beach.

Below you can check out some screen-caps from the video showing off the fighters in action. Be sure to hit the jump to view the video.

Kenneth 'K-Brad' Bradley joins team Evil Geniuses

It was announced today by CoolGrayAJ over on Twitter that Kenneth "K-Brad" Bradley is now the newest member of Team Evil Geniuses.

K-Brad has made a name for himself by proving he is a very strong Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 player. Most recently, the top level Cammy player took home 1st place at SoCal Regionals 2014, defeating the EVO 2012 champion, Infiltration, in the grand finals.

The new Evil Geniuses member stated that he is happy to be a part of the team, and gives credit to Justin Wong for making it happen. "Over the years, I've become good friends with the EG players, most especially Justin Wong, whom I would credit in getting me here in the first place," K-Brad says. "I am truly thankful to have great teammates like Eduardo, Ricky and Justin. I couldn't be any happier if I tried.”

K-Brad joins fellow Street Fighter players Justin Wong, Ricky Ortiz, PR Balrog, Momochi, and Choco Blanka on the team.

Flapping Bird Kick! 'Street Flapper' mixes Street Fighter with Flappy Bird in all new, free iOS app that looks cooler than it sounds

Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time...

If you haven't been living under a rock for the past year, chances are you've heard of an app called Flappy Bird. It's a game that puts you in the driver's seat, and lets you control a small, round bird with the touch of the screen. The goal is to navigate through obstacles formed of green pipes from the Super Mario Bros. series, and try to get the highest score. (I'm not making this up.)

Now, a new, free app has hit the market, only this time it is Street Fighter 2 themed. "Street Flapper" mixes classic sounds, sprites, and backgrounds from SF2 with the foundation of Flappy Bird.

Although this may look like a lawsuit waiting to happen, the iTunes description states that there is absolutely no monetization or advertising going on here, and that Street Flapper is just a silly, fan-made project for people to enjoy. The description goes on to say that if Capcom requests the app be removed, it will be taken down.

The new app is available for iPhone and iPad, and you can find all the information you need on Street Flapper by hitting the link. Ffeel free to let us know if you try it out for yourself.

Hit the jump for video footage of Street Flapper.
