Player Points boosting method using Yun's Summer Vacation costume taunt glitch discovered in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Looks like France's Alioune Sensei wasn't the only member of the FGC to have found ridiculous applications for Yun's Summer Vacation costume taunt glitch.

Over in Japan, some players have discovered that the glitch can actually be used to boost a player's PP easily. They've posted the method on Japan's 2ch forums, and now there are reports of Ultra Street Fighter 4 players having used the method to get their PP -- not BP -- up to 7,000 and higher.

EventHubs's Steven "DreamKing23" Chavez has tested this out himself, and we can confirm that the exploit works. He played a single match with his test partner, and here are what their respective BPs and PPs look like, before and after the single match.

Below we're going to reveal how the PP boost exploit works, for knowledge purposes, but please do not boost your PP.

How to use Yun's Summer Costume 'Focus Taunt Cancel' as an option-select in a real Ultra Street Fighter 4 match

It's not even been a full day since news of Yun's Summer Costume taunt glitch broke, but already at least one member of the FGC has found some very cool applications for this bug.

France's Alioune Sensei has put out a short video showing how he might use the tech to his advantage in a real match. When used as an option-select, the taunt glitch can help Yun players get out of hard-to-escape frame trap situations -- not that they really need this tech, of course.

It can even be used to absorb (and subsequently counter) the first hit of Chun-Li's EX lightning kicks. See for yourself below.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS Ver. 1.0.4 patch coming mid-November, incompatible with replays and local Wi-Fi play from all previous versions

If you've got some super sick match replays stored in your copy of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, now might be a good time go grab your camera phone and start manually making videos of them for archiving purposes.

Because a new Super Smash Bros. 3DS patch -- Ver. 1.0.4 -- is on the way, and it will not be compatible with replay data from all previous versions of the game.

Once you've updated your game to Ver. 1.0.4 (which is required for online connectivity), you will also not be able to do local Wi-Fi play with friends who have not yet updated to this latest version.

And that's why Nintendo is announcing the patch a little earlier than usual this time. So when does Ver. 1.0.4 drop?

Quan Chi can gain one hit of armor, Kotal Kahn absorbs health from opponents - last week's Mortal Kombat X live stream replay

Last week, NetherRealm Studios aired their first live stream dedicated to showing off their upcoming fighting title, Mortal Kombat X. Although the first look at Quan Chi and Scorpion's Fatalities in their entirety was the talk of the town from this broadcast, there was quite a bit of information that may have flown under the radar.

While the stream focused much on explaining what the different Variations do for each character, details about Kotal Kahn's totems and Quan Chi's spells were also unveiled for the first time.

These enhancers do a number of things from restoring health to granting the player with a hit of armor. Below you will find a breakdown of Kotal Kahn's totems and Quan Chi's spells.

• Obsidian Totem (black and blue) - defense. Kotal Kahn takes about 20% less damage from attacks while the totem is up.

• Crystal Totem (green and yellow) - offense. Kotal Kahn's arms glow with green power and he gets increased damage on attacks.

• Blood Totem (red) - absorb. Any damage that Kotal Kahn does to his opponent will send their blood to the totem, recovering Kahn's health. If he gets hit during the duration of the totem being out, he will not recover health.

Note: Totems can not be stacked.

Poongko throws his shirt in anger, Pepeday makes an amazing air throw read: Watch the unbelievable Canada Cup grand finals here

If you didn't catch the Ultra Street Fighter 4 grand finals set at Canada Cup 2014, then you truly missed out. Ask anyone that saw it and they'll tell you that this set was one of the most hype, most insane tournament sets they've ever seen. The crowd, the commentators, and even us here at EventHubs were going crazy as Poongko and FGC|Pepeday slugged it out in a high-flying, fast-paced battle to the KO.

Luckily, Canada Cup Gaming has already uploaded this set on to YouTube, and we have it here for you today.

For those pressed on time, we have also added a few animated GIFs that we feel perfectly express just how nutty this set was.

Hit the images below to see Poongko stop El Fuerte's run from fullscreen with a crouching elbow, Pepeday making a sick read and tagging Poongko with the Ex Guacamole Leg Throw, and a sequence that features both players going for Ultra, both players missing them, and then a scramble to get the next hit after recovery.

Yun has a parry in USF4, and no, this isn't Omega Mode! New tech allows players to absorb attack and go right into light kick

Some new Ultra Street Fighter 4 Yun tech has just surfaced, and this is something you'll definitely want to check out.

When wearing Yun's Summer Vacation costume, his taunt #10 performs a far standing light kick instead of his regular taunt, by way of glitch. MrWaffleSlapper shows that if a player Plinks the taunt from focus attack, it allows Yun to absorb an attack, then cancel into the standing light kick taunt immediately, much like Hakan can do with his normals when oiled.

This light kick isn't special cancelable, but it can be canceled into standing medium punch and converted into combo. The MP actually acts as his close standing MP, meaning he has more hit stun on the attack and can perform similar setups to those that follow his grounded target combo.

With proper execution, this parry could be used in real matches, and BCN|Alioune has already stated on Twitter that he's found a useful option select that utilizes this technique. Still, we'll have to wait and see just how large an impact this makes on competitive play.

So far, we know that this works on the Xbox 360 version of the game, and reports claim that it does not work on PC.

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think.

Armada keeps Leffen airborne for a full 10 seconds with this insane Peach combo - SSBM highlight from DrømmeLAN 4.0

DrømmeLAN 4.0, a Smash Bros. event in Norway, took place this past weekend, and many of Europe's best Smashers were in attendance.

Among the pack were two very familiar faces in the Smash community -- top players A|Armada and Leffen. Naturally, these two competitors faced off in the winner's finals of the Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament, and one particular clip is currently making rounds across the internet.

Both players stood at two stocks, and Armada just re-entered the stage after being knocked out by Leffen. The Peach player then came out swinging and clobbered Leffen's Fox with an outstanding combo.

What stood out most to us was the staggering hits landed as Leffen bounced on top of Peach's umbrella, and the perfectly timed turnip throw to solidify the KO.

This sequence was just too amazing not to share, and the folks in attendance seemed to think the combo was pretty neat as well.

Hit the jump to check out the DrømmeLAN 4.0 stream archive.

Desk's latest: Chun-Li 86-hit combo on Rufus, El Fuerte's Run-Stop-Fierce done on pad, Akuma and Rolento loops and more - USF4 CMV

You'd think that between his Ultra Combos Red and Ultra Combos Blue CMVs, master combo maestro Desk would have run out of ideas by now as to what else to show. But nope, you'd think wrong.

Desk is truly a gift to the FGC -- and a gift that keeps on giving. And this time he's back with the video he was teasing earlier last month: Playing Street Fighter No.2, which is a series of CMVs that has Desk's jazz hands displayed in a corner of the video.

In this latest video, Desk performs a spiffy 86-hit Chun-Li combo on Rufus utilizing both Kikouken and Lightning Kicks loops, a high-level Ryu FADC combo with just one hand on the fight stick, El Fuerte's Run-Stop-Fierce loops on a PlayStation Dual Shock pad, and other crazy combo feats in Ultra Street Fighter 4 that are incredibly flashy both on-screen and in the flesh.

Check out Desk's magical jazz hands in the video below.

New stage in Skullgirls displays different banners depending on the characters picked, Beowulf's new moves shown off on Salty! stream

On the latest Salty! weekly Skullgirls live stream, Lab Zero Games showed off the first revision for the Beowulf's Ring stage, which has a pretty cool dynamic element to it: the banners in the background changes to show whichever characters you and your opponent pick in each match.

Other than the new stage, a newer build of the Beowulf character was also shown off, now that most of his normal and special moves have been animated.

Vega's vortex still works on Evil Ryu even with Delayed Wakeup? Walk forward UC1 setups, perfect rounds and more - spotlight on Doctor Claw

Olympic Gaming is back with another Ultra Street Fighter 4 player spotlight, and this time the star featured here is Doctor Claw.

This may not be the first time Doctor Claw has received a player spotlight video from Olympic Gaming, but it's certainly the first one to be done on Ultra Street Fighter 4 -- which sports some nasty new tricks for Vega.

We're talking, of course, about the by-now infamous cross-under HP Rolling Crystal Flash into Rolling Izuna Drop Super. I've actually landed this maneuver myself a couple of times on Japanese players at Kyoto's A-Cho arcade, so don't doubt it; this tech is real.

Other interesting moments in this spotlight include landing a walk forward and crouch into Vega's UC1 bait on EG|PR Balrog, an exceptional mastery of Vega's Izuna Drop vortex game, and even some entertaining perfect rounds where Doctor Claw keeps making the right reads.

Check out the video below.

Air sends Smug packing, Lap Chi hits FChamp with 4 crazy Blanka balls, and 4DSam's fearless Ryu goes in on Zangief: Canada Cup top 16 highlights

Canada Cup 2014 has officially wrapped up tonight after a weekend packed with incredible fighting game action. The Ultra Street Fighter 4 top 16 was particularly exciting, so we bring to you some of the most hype moments, in case you missed the action.

The first hype moment came from a match in top 16 between 4D Sam's Ryu and Under Night In-Birth.EXE champion Clim's Zangief. At one point during this match, Gootecks stated 'everything I thought I knew about Street Fighter is wrong.'

Sam's very unorthodox style had the crowd's attention and kept it throughout the entire match. From seemingly psychic uppercuts to relentless rush down against Zangief, this match left the crowd hype and the commentators rolling with laughter.

By the end of the match, Mike Ross, with a hint of sarcasm on his tongue, stated that there's a new Ryu Sheriff in town and his skill level surpasses that of even Daigo.

This gif captures the nature of the match all in a few seconds. Six back dashes. One forward dash. No fear...

10-year-old Karissa Bannister beating grown men in Super Smash Bros. Wii U turns out to be a publicity stunt for a GameStop commercial

Yesterday, news of a 10-year-old girl, Karissa, beating fully-grown men in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at a pre-release GameStop event broke on the Interwebs and promptly wormed its way into the Smash community's hearts.

"I wished I had a daughter like that," a Smash player who was at the venue said on camera as he filmed using his phone a video of Karissa playing at GameStop. "Everyone wishes they had a daughter like that," another Smash fan chimed in.

Unfortunately, as it turns out, the whole thing was staged. Karissa had been hired to attend the Super Smash Bros. Wii U pre-release event, along with about 5 to 6 planted actors, allegedly for a GameStop commercial.

Regardless of the facts of the matter, what we found most interesting was that Karissa is actually really good at Smash, unlike most actors or actresses hired for video game commercials.

As you can see in these videos below, she's actually pretty decent at Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Her Diddy Kong, especially, looked legit. Props to Karissa for actually being solid at the game -- I think she may even be better than me at it.

Mario's Cape into Cape combos used to devastating results - Super Smash Bros. 3DS CMV ft. Nyani

Mario's got some sick combos. That much everybody (who's ever eaten a down throw into his Up+A strong attack multiple times in a row) knows.

And even if you've never got to play against a good Mario, you've certainly seen what Nintendo's star plumber can do in these two Brawl Karter videos. Those videos serve as a good point of reference if you're thinking of picking the character up.

But there's more. We're talking Cape into Cape combos, and air combos that account for the opponent's Directional Influence (DI) when hit.

That's what you'll see in this new Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS CMV that Clash Tournaments has posted, starring CT Nyani.

Check out CT Nyani's excellent Mario play in the video below. It's simply quite exquisite.

Daigo's favorite Evil Ryu move, the far-standing MK, can convert into big damage - new Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV shows how

Evil Ryu's far-standing MK has got to be one of MCZ|Daigo's favorite moves.

You've seen him bust it out plenty of times in his matches, often as a poke after backing away from his opponent, or used as a footsies tool from maximum distance.

But did you know that the far-standing MK can actually lead to ridiculous damage when it's landed as a counter-hit, and you have the reactions to capitalize on it?

It's a 1F link off of a single-hit hit confirm, so this will be pretty difficult to work into your Evil Ryu game.

But check out what kinds of crazy damage are possible off of a single far-standing MK on counter-hit in this Evil Ryu CMV, made by EventHubs reader TheFlyingGrayson.
