EventHubs lists top 50 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players, #10 - #01 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #USF4rank

Important note: Today we'll be revealing the top 10 live, one at a time, every 20 minutes. So be sure to stay tuned here at EventHubs to catch all of the players as they're announced.

That's right, folks! You read that headline correctly. Tonight we're back with the top 50 players in Ultra Street Fighter 4, beginning from when the game first dropped back in June of last year.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in player skill across the globe, and personal opinion.

The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have the top 10 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#USF4rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.

Every last one of Daigo's raging demons at Canada Cup Master's Series

The Beast is back on top after last month's impressive, dominating victory at Canada Cup Master's Series.

MCZ|Daigo Umehara has been developing his Evil Ryu for some time now, but we've never seen it in the form we saw at Master's Series. Truly, he has ascended.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of Daigo's game play was his incorporation of Evil Ryu's super combo.

This is a trick that has been around since Vanilla as Akuma has the exact same move. Still, the likes of RZR|Xian, Snake Eyez, EG|PR Balrog and more felt the pain of the raging demon multiple times over.

Hit the jump below to see all of Daigo's umedemons compiled into one convenient video.

Jamie Lee Curtis plays 'more Street Fighter than you will ever know', plans to take her son to EVO to celebrate his graduation

Prior to today, I have never heard of the movie Spare Parts (starring Jamie Lee Curtis, George Lopez, Carlos PenaVega and Marisa Tomei) about four high school students who decide to enter a robotics contest as an underdog team going up against MIT. It's based on this true story.

In fact, I've never seen any of the movies that Golden Globe-nominated actress Jamie Lee Curtis has appeared in, for that matter. I'm not at all familiar with her work.

But as soon as Spare Parts hits theatres in my neck of the woods (the film was released in cinemas January 16 in the United States), I'm going to go see it.

Because this mother of two said in a recent movie interview that she plays a lot of Street Fighter, and is planning to celebrate her son's high school graduation in June by taking him to a fighting game convention -- presumably the EVO Championship Series in July (but it could be CEO or Southeast Asia Majors in late June too). That's just too freaking awesome.

Watch the interview for yourself below.

EVO 2015 lineup to be revealed live tomorrow evening on Twitch - which titles do you think will be main games this year

After a lengthy consideration process, this year's EVO games are now locked in -- and they're slated to be revealed this week, EVO Championship Series founding member Joey 'Mr. Wizard' Cuellar announced on Twitter today.

I hope you're ready to find out which fighting game titles will be made the main games at EVO this year. If not, well, you have slightly more than 24 hours to brace yourselves. For as it turns out, by "this week", what Mr. Wizard really means is "tomorrow night". Time to get hype, fighting game fans!

That's when a special EVO 2015 announcement Twitch stream is scheduled to happen (starting at 7PM PST). Mr. Wizard is making a trip down to the streaming service provider's offices for this live stream, and he will be joined by Twitch's very own Mike Ross for the broadcast. On top of revealing the EVO 2015 line-up, Mr. Wizard will also be taking questions from the stream monsters.

So make sure to come watch the stream here with us here on EventHubs tomorrow evening (it'll be on the front page as soon as the stream goes live), as we find out what this year's EVO main games are going to be.

Until then, watch the official EVO 2015 trailer below, and tell us your predictions of what the EVO 2015 line-up will be like. Which Smash title will be a main game this year? Will Tekken be part of the main game line-up? Will unreleased titles like Mortal Kombat X make it in? What about the ArcSys fighters?

Suicune, Pikachu, and Gardevoir confirmed playable in Pokkèn Tournament - arcade cabinet will use controller instead of fightstick

The Famitsu live stream showing off Bandai Namco's upcoming Pokèmon-based fighter "Pokkèn Tournament" aired eariler today, and with it came a sea of new information.

Firstly, Suicune, Pikachu, and Gardevoir have all been confirmed as playable characters. They'll be joining the likes of Machamp and Lucario in the fray.

Additionally, Pokkèn Tournament will have a support Pokèmon system in which players can select a monster to aid them in battle. Players will do battle with these assists on the game's battlefield, which is fully 3D, allowing fighters to move around as they see fit.

And if that isn't enough information on Bandai Namco's upcoming fighter, try this on for size. The Pokkèn Tournament arcade cabinets will feature a standard controller (D-pad + BAYX button scheme) instead of a traditional fightstick. You can check out the screenshots below to check out everything mentioned here.

'Dead or Alive is now a total mess. It's disgusting.' says original series creator Tomonobu Itagaki in extensive interview from Orochinagi

Tomonobu Itagaki is known for many things. To some, he's known as the creator of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, and as the man who helmed Team Ninja until he left the company in 2008. To some, he's known as that guy who hates Tekken.

Whichever way you slice it, Itagaki is both a visionary and controversial figure, and don't think the 'controversial' aspect has changed since he left Team Ninja and started up Valhalla Games.

In a recent interview with Itagaki conducted by Emperor Cow over at Orochinagi, Itagaki had some choice words to say about the direction his former baby, Dead or Alive, has taken. Below, you'll find a quick snippet to get you started.

Everybody is a little perverted; even I’m a little perverted. But, it was for that very reason I created DOAX [Dead or Alive Xtreme]; in order to target the people who wanted something a little bit more casual and sexy but at the same time keeping that tone separate from the 'fighting game' that is DOA. DOA is now a total mess.

Hit the jump to hear more about what Tomonobu Itagaki had to say about the franchise's current state.

Ono is looking to bring in younger players with Street Fighter 5, wants to improve netcode in Capcom fighters

In a recent interview, Polygon caught up with Capcom's Corporate Officer and beloved face in the fighting game community, Yoshinori Ono, to talk about Street Fighter 5 and how it came to fruition.

While much of the piece is dedicated to detailing the path Ono walked in order to get the upcoming Street Fighter title going, the loveable trickster happened to drop a few nuggets of information regarding the next-gen Street Fighter.

All of the footage of Street Fighter 5 we've seen so far has shown off a number interesting mechanics and features that, at a glance, may seem difficult to master for newcomers. Despite that, Ono states that one of his goals with this fresh Street Fighter game is to bring in more younger players, those who "may be easily distracted by other forms of entertainment," Polygon reports.

UFC fighter Felice Herrig feels her likenesses were used as inspiration for Mortal Kombat X's Cassie Cage

Cassie Cage, the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, is a brand new combatant making her debut in NetherRealm Studios' upcoming fighter -- Mortal Kombat X.

UFC fighter Felice Herrig -- who first began her rise to fame during the 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter -- took to Instagram and Twitter recently to point out a visual similarity between herself and MKX's new blonde-bombshell fighter. Not only that, but Herrig feels that her look may have been used as a reference for this character during the design process.

"After thorough investigation, I think it's safe to say Mortal Kombat X definitely used my likeness for the video game character Cassie Cage," Herrig wrote on social media.

Below you can see a couple of side-by-side photographs, courtesy of Herrig, in which the two look fairly similar.

Steam Database drops hints for another potential new costume pack for USF4?

Some rather interesting speculations have been brought to our recent attention regarding a potential new costume pack for Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Now, before we go any further, please note that this is SPECULATION and that nothing has been officially announced by Capcom.

With that in mind there are two pages in the Steam Database site that we'd like to direct you to. It's also important to mention here that the Steam Database site is not Steam itself, but rather simply monitors Steam's activity and looks for cues for future releases.

The first page of interest is found here. Now, this may look like a bunch of crazy numbers and make absolutely no sense to many of you... don't worry.

The only thing you need to take away from this is that it indicates that Steam changed their depots and added SOMETHING for Ultra Street Fighter 4 on PC. At this point, we don't know what it is... but we do have a hunch.

Hit the jump to see why we think it's a costume pack.
