Combofiend: Ultra Street Fighter 4 balancing isn't finished, cites issues with Yun, Seth & Dee Jay - Edition Select coming online via update

There's an update to Ultra Street Fighter 4 in the works, but it may just address hit box issues and bugs that have been discovered.

During a panel at EVO 2014, Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas reportedly said balance work isn't finished yet on the game, specifically citing issues with Yun, Seth and Dee Jay.

Despite these statements, it's not confirmed that another balance patch will be available for USF4, once again, outside of fixing bugs and hit box problems.

In positive news though, Edition Select, which lets you select any version of the characters from the SF4 series will be making its way online.

Also, the option to make the training dummy perform a delayed wake up will also be added into the game, via a future update.

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."

Two new Fire Emblem characters join Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Captain Falcon also jumps into the fray

Update: Official screenshots have been added for Robin, Lucina and Captain Falcon.

Update 2: It appears on further reflection that Chrom, from Fire Emblem: Awakening, may just be part of Robin's Final Smash and not actually a playable character.

Nintendo foreshadowed a few days ago that they would reveal a new character for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game today, and the video was just released for the enigmatic newcomer.

The new characters are none other than a whopping three new Fire Emblem characters, Robin, Chrom and Lucina, who are all from the latest installment, Fire Emblem: Awakening. The trailer also shows fan favourite F-Zero franchise main character, Captain Falcon, make a triumphant return to the scene.

Find the full trailer after the jump.

Kevin 'Dieminion' Landon and Chris 'Kreymore' Landon announce departure from Empire Arcadia

Updated: We have just received word that Chris "Kreymore" Landon has also left Empire Arcadia. He made his announcement over on Twitter yesterday afternoon.

Earlier: Just a few moments ago, Kevin "Dieminion" Landon announced via Twitter that he too is no longer a part of Empire Arcadia.

Although Dieminion, known mostly for his extremely accomplished Guile in the Street Fighter 4 series, did not cite a reason for his leaving the team, he does send well wishes to remaining members.

Landon is the third former EMP member to announce his departure from the competitive gaming team this month, as both IFC Yipes and Sanford Kelly also declared their leaving.

There is no word yet on whether or not Dieminion has another sponsorship lined up, but we will keep you updated as the information unfolds.

You can check out both announcement tweets below.

As of yet, there has been no word of IFC Yipes signing with a new team or sponsor.

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.

Combofiend explains why Guile's life was nerfed, when Evil Ryu's was buffed; Video of Capcom's Ultra Street Fighter 4 panel at EVO 2014

Following live-from-location reports of the announcements made at Capcom's Ultra Street Fighter 4 panel yesterday (Online Edition Select, an update for bug fixes, Delayed Wake-up options coming to Training mode), EVO attendee MetalMusicMan04 has also uploaded a shakycam video of nearly the entire panel -- as much footage as he could capture before his smartphone ran out of storage.

Thanks to the video, we now know that in Edition Select, on top of being able to play the mode online, version icons will also be introduced so that you'll be able to tell which version of your opponent's character you'll be fighting against.

Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas also gave a brief breakdown of the game's balancing process, explaining why certain buffs such as those for Vega's EX Scarlet Terror and Ken's crouching medium kick were reverted during the location testing phase.

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.
