'You have discovered a secret fight' - One of Mortal Kombat X's current living towers has a hidden opponent

If you haven't already, you may want to check out Mortal Kombat X's current living towers.

As it stands right now, MKX's premier tower is Mortal Kombat 1 themed. This pits you against 9 opponents from the original game, with Goro as the final adversary.

To make things even more interesting, this premier tower has a secret battle ingrained within it. In order to trigger this battle, all you have to do is fight your way to the 6th tower match, win one round with a flawless victory, and finish the match with a Fatality or Brutality.

If all of these criteria are met, the hidden opponent will emerge. JurassicRabbit has put together a video revealing who the opponent is and how to face them.

Spoiler alert: If you do not want to know who the secret opponent is and what to find out for yourself, do not proceed.

Street Fighter 5: Charlie's new 'Crescent Kick' doesn't require charge? And is teleport actually his V-Trigger? Check out Vesper's latest breakdown

VesperArcade returns once again with an excellent Street Fighter 5 footage analysis. This time, the official Charlie (Nash) trailer is on the chopping block.

In this breakdown, Vesper takes a closer look at the changes that have been made to Ryu, Chun-Li, and the game's overall look since early footage was released. Not only that, but he also identifies Charlie's normal and special attacks, giving insight on what each one might be and how they might operate.

One interesting point made in this video is the fact that Charlie's "Crescent Kick" attack may not actually be a charge move. Even though the character is predominantly a charge-type fighter, we can see in the trailer that he performs this special move after standing in the neutral position (meaning there's no charge). Check out the GIF below to see Charlie hit the Crescent Kick after a quick normal attack.

Additionally, Vesper makes some great points as to why Charlie's teleport may indeed be his special V-Trigger ability.

Be sure to check out the full analysis video after the jump.

Creative director at Microsoft Adam Isgreen posted a quick video clip on Vine showing what Aganos' retro costume looks like in-game. This is the very first glimpse we've seen of his alternate skin in Killer Instinct season 2.

'Being sold in pieces what would normally be considered 100% altogether is intolerable' - Smash Bros. creator on DLC

In the most recent installment of his weekly Famitsu column, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai discussed a fairly touchy subject in the video game industry -- downloadable content.

While Sakurai isn't entirely against the idea of post-launch content, he does make it clear that his disdain is geared towards content that should be included in the original product but is sold separately.

"Having to pay afterwards is extremely unsatisfying," Sakurai said. "I completely understand how customers feel. Being sold in pieces what would normally be considered 100% altogether is intolerable."

He went on to explain that he and his team very well could have kept some of their fully completed Super Smash Bros. 4 characters out of the finished product and sold them as DLC, but it wouldn't have been the right thing to do.

"Considering the development costs and the fact that content-wise it is already more than enough, if we were to pursue pure profit, that would be the way to go.”

Updated: Ultra Street Fighter 4 update now live on Steam's main client

Updated: Numerous EventHubs users have pointed out to us that yesterday's update on Steam actually implemented the Ultra Street Fighter 4 1.05 changes. Though we originally reported that yesterday's update addressed netcode issues, it turns out that Valve launched a fix on Steam's main client earlier this month that removed the occasional pauses/hangs some were experiencing when searching for matches, making online more playable.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Earlier: Last month, Capcom implemented an improvement to Ultra Street Fighter 4's netcode on PC via Steams Beta client.

Today, the update has gone live for all Ultra Street Fighter 4 Steam users.

This update is aimed at improving the overall online experience for PC warriors.

If you'd like to know how USF4's netcode fairs after the patch, be sure to read these impressions from two of EventHubs' staffers.

Daigo: 'I think I will be boarding about 40 different flights this year; I plan to win prize money at a level I've never done before'

This past Sunday, on April 19, Mad Catz pro gamer Daigo "The Beast" Umehara made an appearance at the Tokyo School of Anime to give a talk on the subject of "eSports Professional Gamer World" as a special guest lecturer.

MCZ|Daigo's talk is part of a series of lectures that the Tokyo School of Anime is organizing specifically for applicants considering enrollment into their eSports curriculum, a two-year program that will begin in 2016 with four majors to choose from -- including pro gaming, shoutcasting and events management.

4Gamer writer and renowned Tekken reporter Hameko attended the talk on Sunday, and did a report on it. He noted that about half of the 80-strong audience were teenagers, and was surprised to see a male-to-female ratio of 6:4.

After the talk, Hameko also caught up with The Beast himself for a brief interview.

In this interview, which we've translated in its entirety, MCZ|Daigo talks what he'd be like as a full-time lecturer at the school, his thoughts on competing in Street Fighter 5 next year, as well as his plans for Capcom Pro Tour 2015.

Capcom registers 'Capcom Fighters Network' trademark, could use the name for a computer program or online portal

A trademark registration for "Capcom Fighters Network" that the House of Street Fighter has filed earlier this month with the United States Patent and Trademark Office has gone live, EventHubs has learned.

According to the coverage description for the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN) trademark, the name could potentially be used on at least two different things.

The first is a computer program that would "enable uploading, accessing, posting, displaying, tagging, blogging, linking, sharing or otherwise providing images, information, data and electronic media over the Internet" -- which sounds like it might potentially be a tool for players to share replays or screenshots, possibly for Street Fighter 5.

And the second way in which the Capcom Fighters Network could potentially manifest, is an online portal that would let users pull up their friends' "ranking or scores of games through the websites", sign up for tournaments and leagues, take surveys, and even play "on-line [sic] interactive multiplayer games", among other things.

Check out the trademark coverage description for the Capcom Fighters Network name in full, through the image below.
