Alex Valle reveals his biggest concern about Street Fighter 5

As far as the competitive fighting game scene is concerned, they don't get much more veteran and knowledgeable than LU|Alex Valle.

With a nickname like "Mr. Street Fighter," you can bet your bottom dollar that most of what Valle has to say is worth its weight when it comes to fighting games, and he's got a big concern for newcomers in Street Fighter 5.

Just yesterday, Valle tweeted out the following: This is a pretty broad statement at first glance, and could be alluding to multiple meanings. Luckily, the head of Level Up continues on to specify exactly what he means. Hit the jump for more.

Misse's unrelenting Makoto, Tonpy's unblockable Viper and StormKubo's unbelievable comebacks make up our top seven Taiwan Fighter Major hype moments

Taiwan Fighter Major has concluded, and we have collected some of our favorite moments from the tournament to share with you. Though there was top notch play throughout, we nabbed seven moments that impressed us the most.

Storm Doesn't Care

In our first highlight, we see StormKubo's Hugo up against RZR|Itabashi's Zangief. Taken down to just a pixel of health, the audience is surprised when Itabashi's Spinning Pile Driver doesn't score the KO.

Kubo however, doesn't miss a beat as he stands up and runs through Itabashi, as though he were the one on offense the whole time.

Hit the jump for more, including Misse's unstoppable Makoto, Tonpy's flashy Viper and an even greater comeback from StormKubo.

What to expect from the PlayStation 4 port of Ultra Street Fighter 4

There was a bit of a delay from initial intentions, but Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be living the rest of its Pro Tour life on the PlayStation 4. As the PS4 is now the new standard, many players have begun the transition to the next generation platform.

Others haven't had a chance to dive in yet, and so we've taken some time with the game on PlayStation 4 to jot down any notable differences, good and bad, from the previous iterations.

The first note, which we're excited to be able to make, is that overall, the game looks and runs more smoothly than before. It was built for the previous gen consoles, and so we're not expecting lifelike graphics, but edges do look a little smoother this time around.

Offline play runs just as good, if not better than before. We hit all of our links pretty consistently, so this port should be viable for tournaments moving forward. Having said that, there are certainly still some hiccups in the less integral parts of game play. Hit the jump to read on.

Ed Boon's recent tweets pique our interest as he makes nods toward Terminator, Alien and Bo' Rai Cho in Mortal Kombat X

With the slew of cryptic tweets in the past week or so, Ed Boon has Mortal Kombat X fans on edge as we wait and hope for new content.

A few more tweets in recent days have had fans inching ever closer to the edge of their seats in anticipation for a second Kombat Pack. Perhaps the strongest of these references comes from the tweet below: Apparently Nether Realm Studios has had thoughts, at some capacity, about including the Terminator. This isn't where it stops though, hit the jump to see the tweets regarding the two other possible future fighters.

Street Fighter 5 Cammy combo video shows a ton of flexibility, kara grab options - JoshGG shows we've only scratched the surface of what SF5 offers

As more people get hands on time with Street Fighter 5, we see more and more knowledge and tech become available through all sorts of players, and today is no exception. JoshGG gives us two videos, one being a Cammy combo video, and the other being a kara grab tutorial that shows quite a bit of what the killer bee has to offer.

The combo video is incredibly comprehensive, exploring many combos out of various regular and command normals, crush counter combos, and V-Trigger combos, showing us how flexible Cammy's combo game is.

The next video is a kara grab tutorial, displaying three different kara grabs Cammy can utilize. Most intriguing about it, however, is that one of them uses a normal that normally moves her backwards, but ends up being the most effective kara grab tool.

Street Fighter 5's M. Bison scores crazy damage - This 70% combo will leave your opponents stunned

While we certainly know Street Fighter 5's damage can be quite high, we've never seen such a large damage combo without using a critical art. UM Tyrant shows us how it's done with a 70% combo using the tyrant himself, M. Bison.

The combo is off of a jump in, and uses two meters to reach stun, as well as Bison's V-Trigger throughout. At the end of it all, it uses three meter for 644 damage (70% on Cammy), and is sure to make it's mark on would be opponents.

With a large amount of the game's elements being combined for this combo, it gives us an interesting look into the potential Bison may have, especially while in V-Trigger.

Our friend Jason Laboy a.k.a. Jason24cf took a couple of trips down to both the Special Edition NYC and ConnectiCon conventions recently in order to check out what each expo had in store.

'You're still standing? Snot a problem' - Birdie's booger scores the first idle stance KO we've ever seen in Street Fighter 5

I'll preface this by saying that I never thought I'd have to write the words "booger knock out" ever in my life... Now that that's out of the way, let's get into it.

As some of you might know, in Street Fighter 5 Birdie shamelessly picks a booger and tosses it at the opponent when he's left standing idle for a short amount of time. What's interesting is, this projectile actually deals a tiny bit of damage.

With the recent beta stress tests in Europe, MDZ Ricky managed to pull off the unthinkable: knocking out the opponent using Birdie's booger toss.

After landing a command throw that appeared to be the finishing blow, the Ryu player miraculously remained living with a magic pixel of health. Believing there was no way to mount a comeback, the Ryu player gave up, leaving them open to the booger beat-down. (How many times can I write "booger" in this story?...)

Though this tactic is not very practical, MDZ Ricky managed to land it fair and square. You can check out the footage after the jump.

Next Level Arcade in New York City to close in February, co-owner sheds light on the situation

For those unfamiliar, Next Level Arcade is an arcade in New York City host to the NLBC weekly, as well as many FGC gatherings. Despite a long running, co-owner Henry Cen has stated that they will be shutting their doors on February 29th, 2016.

It would seem that this sudden turn of events is due to a disagreement between both owners concerning the future of Next Level Arcade, resulting in an agreement to go their separate ways once the lease ends in February.

This comes as a shock to much of the community, especially in the east coast, with another beloved arcade closing up shop. Victor "Spooky" Fontanez, the man responsible for running NLBC at the location, gave the first hints at this trouble in a discussion he held over his stream.

Hit the jump for more details, and a stream archive.

'Taking my shirt off is kind of embarassing, but it's become my trademark' - Poongko feels good about Street Fighter 5's potential

Recently, the crew over at Arcade Stream had the opportunity to interview Poongko, who had quite a bit to say concerning his shirt-removing showmanship, Street Fighter 5's potential and how he felt about the game, and character choices in Street Fighter 4.

When discussing showmanship, he specifically talks about the incident at Evo where he removed his shirt in response to another player. It seems he felt he couldn't just sit there and not respond, and that removing his shirt does actually embarrass him, but it's become something of a trademark and a way to excite him before a match.

Later in the interview, Poongko gives his thoughts on Street Fighter 5, noting that whenever he tries a new Street Fighter game he always does so by using Ryu. He praises the game, talking about how he feels that it has great potential from his experience playing it at Evo.

Enjoy 20 minutes of continuous Vega footage in Street Fighter 5

Despite a small amount of Vega footage getting out, extended playtime of the Street Fighter 2 veteran has remained somewhat elusive.

It looks like a player known as "Tuxedo Kidd" had the forethought to gather twenty minutes of continuous Vega gameplay. While it's off-screen, the quality of the camera is good enough that it doesn't hamper your ability to study Street Fighter 5's latest addition.

Be warned, though, that there's some strange editing choices here and there, including a Pokemon spoof at 2:58 and what looks like a pseudo-interview with former Evolution champion MD|Luffy and his fiancée that's difficult to hear over the loud music.

Nonetheless, it still contains a good portion of Vega, so make sure to watch it below if you're interested in getting some extended study time.
