Red Focus fails, amazing resets, and Abel puts on... Vega's mask? LiangHuBBB's Funny and Cool Moments 85 ft. Ultra Street Fighter 4, KI, and more

LiangHuBBB is back with another episode of his long-running Funny and Cool Moments compilation video series. And this time, the compilation features moments from Ultra Street Fighter 4 -- a first for the video series -- on top of the usual suspects.

In LiangHuBBB's Funny and Cool Moments 85, we not only get to see some amazing resets, god-like parrying in SF3: 3rd Strike, and numerous examples of glitches, but also some very interesting Red Focus fails.

Early on in the clip, for instance, we see two examples of the Red Focus Attack at work: one in which Chun-Li tries to fully absorb all of the hits in Zangief's Double Lariat special move, but fails to survive it; and another instance where Ryu fully absorbs his opponent's Shinku Hadouken and Metsu Hadouken moves back-to-back, and somehow survives.

No infinite for you! NetherRealm Software release hotfix to deal with Batgirl's infinite

A few days ago, we reported on a Batgirl infinite found by RG|Sonic Fox in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

NetherRealm Software have today made it clear that they will have none of that, releasing a hotfix to deal with the issue, by increasing the recovery on her Flying Bat move.

This is a good example of how the current capabilities of patching can really help developers show the love for their community by addressing issues as quickly as possible.

General news roundup: Skullgirls' Fukua now available, King of Fighters 13 100% combos, 14 fancy Pandora combos in SFxT and more

Quite a bit of news/tech has been sent to us this past week, so instead of posting a bunch of rapid fire stories, we thought we'd round it all up in one spot for everyone to check out. This week's general roundup features Skullgirls Encore, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters 13, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

First up, Skullgirls Encore added some new content via an automatic update. Players on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC now have full, playable access to Fukua, the Filia clone that was originally intended to merely be an April Fool's joke.

Fukua's story mode has been added, along with two new stages: The Glass Canopy and Nightmare Crest. Several bug fixes and balance changes have also been implemented.

Editor's note: Fukua can be found by moving the cursor to the right of Big Band on the character select screen. Her portrait will not be visible until you hover over her.

Batgirl infinite in Injustice: Gods Among Us discovered by Sonic Fox, possible to perform it mid-screen

RG|Sonic Fox has discovered an infinite for Batgirl in Injustice: Gods Among Us. It was initially believed to be corner-dependent, but it's possible to pull this off mid-screen as well.

One way to set this up is to do a Cartwheel High Kick in the corner, pause for a second, and then keep hitting the opponent with Batgirl's Flying Bat.

The mid-screen version can be done from Batgirl's vortex, you do a B2U3, wait until right before they hit the ground and keep doing the Flying Bat.

EGP|Wonder Chef said about the discovery, "You have to repeat it quite a bit to get a real large damage increase, and if you drop it you [can get punished by a full combo.]"

He also pointed out in the comments that you can start this from any launcher any where on screen.
