All of the new Ultra Street Fighter 4 costumes revealed - Summer Vacation DLC outfits for everyone

Capcom has released images of all of the Summer Vacation DLC costumes they'll be putting out into the wild.

We've added screen shots for all 44 fighters in the game โ€” sorted alphabetically โ€” so they're easier to find.

These will come in packs of 5 again, mostly, but there will also be an option to buy all 44 as well.

Report: Japanese player said EVO 2014 setup was lagging in USF4, may have impacted Daigo's match

EVO 2014 was an enormous tournament jam-packed with hype, salt, tears, and intense moments. This year we witnessed two of the largest upsets ever as both MCZ|Daigo and Infiltration were eliminated before reaching top 24. Many viewers wondered how two of the most accomplished Street Fighter 4 players were sent home so quickly, and a recent development suggests that a previously unknown factor could have affected player performance.

Beast Note stumbled across a conversation on Twitter that claims there may have been lag present during some of the Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches at the event.

When asked why MCZ|Daigo Umehara lost to John Choi at EVO, a Japanese Blanka player named NeroBlanka, who was in attendance, responded saying that she experienced severe lag while playing Ultra Street Fighter 4 at the event.

Nero feels that the slow down was worse than that which you'd experience online at home, and says that it could have been a factor in MCZ|Daigo's elimination.

'My top 3 EVO matches weren't that hard; my match-up knowledge was way beyond my opponents' - EventHubs' exclusive Luffy interview on his win and more

Olivier 'Luffy' Hay made headlines this year when he not only took home the EVO championship in Ultra Street Fighter 4, but became the first European player to ever do so during the Street Fighter 4 series.

Thankfully, we here at EventHubs' managed to score an interview with the Rose specialist himself, where he talks about how people currently perceive Rose, his mindset during matches, and just how he managed to bring home the gold title at EVO 2014. Below, you'll find a snippet to get you started.

MajinTenshinhan: First off, congraulations on winning EVO. Being the first European champion is huge, and you did an amazing job throughout the entire tournament, beating more incredible players than we can even list, but in the end you had to defeat RZR|Fuudo, a former EVO champion, and then the current Topanga League champion, Bonchan. How did you feel, and what were you thinking, during these extremely high-pressure matches?

MD|Luffy: First off, thanks!

During these matches, I was extremely concentrated. I wanted to play my A game for the whole tournament, which I feel that I did well. I was only thinking about playing the matchup like I know it, and having good adaptation to what my opponent is doing, to get the strongest advantage for myself.

But in the end, I'm kind of dissatisfied as my top 3 matches weren't that hard. My knowledge of those two matchups, Fei Long and Sagat, were way beyond my opponents' understanding of the matchup. A satisfying win is when you struggle hard for it, isn't it?

For example, I was very happy when I saw the K.O. text against Snake Eyez, because I felt that it was a really great match, and that we both put on our best moves while knowing that our opponent is at 100%.

Which grand finals was the most watched at Evo 2014? Ranking the viewership per game

The various finals of Evo 2014 weren't the only wild ride last weekend. Viewership numbers varied greatly between the different grand finals, peaking at 149,470 fighting game fans simultaneously watching the action on Twitch.tv.

Fortunately, Beast Note has gone through the trouble of tracking all of Sunday's ratings throughout the collection of grand finals sets. Using this information, we've ranked each game's peak by live viewership. Again, it should be mentioned that this only ranks the grand finals sets from Sunday; there was no data listed for King of Fighters or Tekken.

Check below to see which grand finals attracted the most attention.

Luffy vs. Ryan Hart: Rose's sweep is safe from Sagat's focus attack, fireballs gain meter 2x as fast - DreamHack Valencia 2014 USF4 grand finals

The Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament at DreamHack Valencia 2014 has just come to a close earlier today. If you missed the stream earlier, you can catch all of the action through the stream archive embedded in our story here.

Before you go, though, there is just one match I would like to draw to your attention. And that is the grand finals played between MD|Luffy (Rose) and DIG|Ryan Hart (Sagat), which was truly a masterclass in learning the Rose-Sagat match-up.

Like Luffy said in this interview by 4Gamer, Ryan Hart and himself have played this match-up countless number of times, and are familiar with all of its ins and outs. And we get to see that match-up knowledge come into play as soon as mere seconds into the first round, as Luffy's Rose attempts to sweep Sagat not at max distance, but at just outside the range of his Focus Attack, causing Sagat's move to completely miss.

Mango: 'I am the greatest Melee player of all time; two EVOs? An MLG? Who has that?' - Smash Bros. champ talks EVO 2014 win

The EVO 2014 Super Smash Bros. Melee champion, C9|Mango, appeared on Live On Three with Slasher and djWheat earlier this week in order to discuss his recent victory. With this year being his second EVO win in a row, the legendary Melee player had quite a bit to say on the matter.

When asked where Mango feels his name falls among the best of the best in Super Smash Bros. Melee history, the back-to-back EVO champion was quick to respond.

"It's #1 and #2. It's #1, #2, and #3. I've done the research, and my stats and everything I've done are just so off the charts," Mango explains. "Now it's like, two EVOs? An MLG? Who has that? No one has that."

Favorite/what were they thinking?! - read what the EventHubs staff thinks about the Ultra Street Fighter 4 Summer Vacation costumes

With official images for the full set of upcoming Ultra Street Fighter 4 Summer Vacation costume DLC now on the internet, many fans have been quite vocal on social media about what they think of these alternate outfits.

Well, we here at EventHubs don't just report news on fighting games -- we're fans too! So we decided to have a discussion among ourselves and pick out our favorite costumes of the entire bunch, along with the ones we feel are a bit... obscure.

Below you will find comments written by everyone on the EventHubs team (including myself), and we encourage you, the reader, to get in on this discussion as well.

Harada: 'We're trying to make Tekken 7 easy to approach, a lot of fans skipped over TTT2 because it was too difficult to learn 2 characters'

After Bandai Namco Games's panel at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, Famitsu.com caught up with Tekken 7 producer and director Katsuhiro Harada in hopes of gleaming more details about the sequel.

While Harada did not provide any concrete details, he did share quite a bit of the team's thinking behind the development of the new Tekken.

"With the previous installment, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, there were a lot more players skipping over the title because it was difficult to learn to use two characters, than we had imagined," Harada said.

"So in contrast to that, since Tekken 7 is a sequel in the mainline series, the expectation here is for us to take the series back to its roots, back to the sort of Tekken that everyone is probably most familiar with. That's the vibe that we're getting from our fans."

To that end, Harada said that the Tekken's series complex wake-up mechanic is currently under review, to potentially get simplified in the new game, but only in a way that core players would also be happy with it.

He also said that more details on the game will be revealed right around the Tokyo Game Show timeframe in mid-September -- that's when Harada is slated to provide fans with the next update on the sequel.

Check out our translation of the interview below.

Poison can completely avoid low attacks by simply rising from a crouch state in USF4; grants her instant, full punishes

Updated: Capcom's Peter Rosas has informed us that they are aware of the problem and that a fix for it will be included in the upcoming patch.

In a bizarre glitch uncovered by Japanese player Ukeuked, Ryu's normally timed sweep can be seen whiffing entirely on Poison when she rises from a crouch. While this alone would be significant, Eventhubs's own DreamKing has discovered that a decent amount of the cast's low attacks are utterly useless on Poison after a neutral stand.

In order to perform this glitch, all you have to do is rise from a crouching state. During Poison's transition from crouching to standing, low attacks seem to whiff entirely allowing her to score an instant, full punish (if timed correctly.)

Check below to see the original GIF of Ryu's whiff and a list of confirmed attacks the glitch neutralizes.

DreamHack Valencia 2014, USF4 tournament results and stream archive featuring Luffy, Ryan Hart, Cuongster, Fasoll, F-Word, Perplex and more

While DreamHack Winter is still a ways off, there's no excuse to not take part in DreamHack Valencia, which takes place in Valencia, Spain this weekend.

The tournament features Ultra Street Fighter 4, and has noteworthy players such as the EVO 2014 champion MD|Luffy present, as well as other top European players like DIG|Ryan Hart, CDV|Cuongster, Fasoll, F-Word, Nercromina and more.

Streaming duties are being handled by Armshouse on the official DreamHack Fighters channel. You can find the livestream below.

Daigo might have pursued a boxing career if he wasn't a pro gamer, attacks everyone in GTA5 aside from seniors/kids; 60 random facts about The Beast

Back on the first day of EVO, we translated a pretty lengthy interview that Gadget Tsuushin did with MCZ|Daigo just prior to The Beast jetting off for the world's biggest fighting games tournament.

In that story, we said that accompanying the piece was an even lengthier "50 questions" side-interview (it turned out to be over 60), which we would get to translating sometime over EVO weekend.

Except, that never came to pass. Because, well, you know, MCZ|Daigo got knocked out from the tournament fairly early. So we felt that random trivia -- such as whether he's a dog or a cat person, or that The Beast can actually use a kitchen knife (If Daigo can cook, Sho Ken Ryu...?) -- about a player who got eliminated at that stage would be among the very last things on anybody's mind that weekend. And so we refrained from doing it.

It's somewhat disappointing to see The Beast get sent home so early in the tournament, but there'll be a next time. This is the man who wrote an entire book on the willpower to continue winning, after all.

As such I present to you, Umehara believers, this fully translated list of over 60 short questions about MCZ|Daigo's private life, almost two weeks after EVO weekend.

Because we think you might care.

Tekken X Street Fighter - Harada wants to mix 2D fighting's jumping offense with traditional 3D style, according to these interviews from 2011-2013

Earlier today, the folks over at Bas Gros Poing sent us a very interesting video that divulges details on the mysterious Tekken X Street Fighter -- Namco Bandai's upcoming 3D style crossover title.

This information comes to us in the form of interview clips featuring Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada and game designer Michael Murray that were shot in 2011, 2012, and 2013. The footage compiled here may have slipped through the cracks for a lot of us, as each of the original interviews were only ever posted over on Bas Gros Poing's French gaming site.

It's very interesting to see the progression of ideas here. Back in 2011, Harada explains that the development team was trying to figure out the proper way to implement fireballs into the 3D setting.

Daigo on his losses to John Choi, Filipino Champ: 'It wasn't because I let my guard down or anything like that; they were just really good'

On this week's episode of Topanga TV, MCZ|Daigo appeared on the show as a guest in part to promote the new manga series based on his life that's currently being serialized in the Weekly Georgia free-to-read smartphone app.

While on the stream, the Mad Catz-sponsored pro chatted with MCZ|Tokido, MCZ|Mago and EG|Momochi on a number of subjects, including what he thought were the reasons behind his losses to RG|Filipino Champ and John Choi at EVO this year.

"With the Dhalsim match-up, there were problems with it that I was still quite uncertain about," the 33-year-old said.
