Kane BlueRiver's Hulk has smashes, HoneyBee's D'Vorah has... bees and Team EG has it out for each other in these Toryuken 4 highlights

Toronto's 4th Toryuken has officially ended, but we're reliving some of the more intense moment's from this weekend's tournament in our highlight recap. We've grabbed a few moments from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat X and, of course, Ultra Street Fighter 4.

UMVC3

Our first highlight comes from the Winners Finals match between EG|Justin Wong and BE|Kane BlueRiver. Match one, round one, right out of the gate KBR's Hulk sets the pace by smacking Justin's Akuma assist with a KO in the first 4 seconds of the round.

Unfortunately for KBR, he would later find himself having to play in the losers bracket against CTRL|RayRay. In a dire situation with only Haggar left to try to take on RayRay's Magneto-led team, KBR makes an amazing play. Surrounded by the chaos of assist missiles, drones, lasers and Magneto, Kane BlueRiver spots an opportune time to simply go for a level 3 super. Situation dealt with.

Thankfully, we now have a target date for SoCal Regionals 2015 - October 9th to October 11th of this year.

'Stay hungry to fight hungry!' Going to your first tournament? Gootecks gives 5 tips to make your debut the best it can be

With the Capcom Pro Tour oiled up with $500,000, and a growing arsenal of popular games such as Mortal Kombat X attracting new players to majors, maybe you think it's about time to go out and test your might--and you should! Going to a tournament can be an extremely rewarding experience where you'll make friendships, memories, and rivalries that will last you a lifetime.

But tournaments can be confusing and disheartening if you're not equipped with the right ideas and approaches. That's why CC|Gootecks has offered up 5 tips for you to keep in mind when you go to your first tournament. It should be noted that this advice is useful to more than those that have never gone; maybe you went to your first tournament already, but the experience didn't play out the way you hoped it would.

Some of the advice is logical but often not thought about. Tip number 2 demands that you "eat light throughout the day." With tournaments comes fast food and any other greasy meal that's quick to put you into a digestive coma. Across from my first CEO was a Popeyes Chicken, and too many players (myself included) were running back and forth between the tournament with combo meals full of fried everything. Gootecks suggests keeping to fruits, vegetables, and nuts during the tournament.

To get all 5 of this tournament veteran's tips, check out the video below.
