Hey Nemo, which are the worst characters in USF4? Dee Jay, Dan, Hugo and... ARE YOU KIDDING? Nemo's full tier list for Ultra Street Fighter 4

BE|Nemo is well known for being one of the best Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom players in Japan. We are still reeling from the incredibly hype exhibition match between him and RG|Filipino Champ at West Coast Warzone 4.

Nemo seems to be a jack of all trades as he wowed us at by winning the USF4 competition at that same tournament with none other than the newly-added Rolento.

We say all this to say, it looks like Nemo knows what he's doing when it comes to fighting games. Why then does the bottom of his tier list surprise us so much?

'I think I can beat everyone at the Capcom Cup' - Snake Eyez on winning majors, the Capcom Pro Tour, and arguing with Marq Teddy

Hello avid EventHubs users! Velociraptor here with a one on one interview with The Fall Classic 2014 USF4 victor, Snake Eyez.

Snake was kind enough to give us about 10 minutes of his time to answer a few questions about his approach to the game, facing off against some of the best competitors in the world at TFC and about qualifying for the Capcom Cup in December.

Oh... and I snuck a question in there about why exactly he feels that Guy vs Zangief is 5-5... you're welcome.

Exclusive interview! Low Ti3r God discusses his grudge match with Viscant outside Super Arcade

Wednesday Night Fights was... intense this week to say the least.

The tournament itself didn't get started until 11pm PST because the night kicked off with the most heated grudge match to date. Featuring Evo 2011 Marvel vs Capcom 3 champion BT|Viscant and Low Ti3r God in a first to ten set in Ultra Street FIghter 4.

The grudge started a few weeks back when LTG, known for his 'uncensored and in your face' attitude, insulted Viscant via social media. Viscant responded with a money match challenge for $200.

The match itself was hype enough but the exchanges before and afterwards were what really set the night on fire. Both players seemed to seethe pure, unadulterated hatred for one another.

I was able to catch up with Low Ti3r God after the match to get his thoughts on the whole situation. The crowd is a bit noisy but that's the Super Arcade ambiance for you. Also, the interview is just a bit NSFW.

Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore from the Killer Instinct community has passed away today; SuperArcade, R/Kappa, Grimmmz organizing donation drives

Eight hours ago, Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore, an active player in SoCal's Killer Instinct scene, tweeted that he would be going up to play on stream next at Level Up's The Runback weekly tournament series. He was very excited to be playing at the tournament, and had rushed down from work to attend it.

Later that night, however, PushaTee collapsed at the event, prompting the organizers to call for an ambulance immediately. Paramedics soon arrived on the scene to take him to the emergency ward.

We're hearing reports from multiple accounts (Markman23, Jebailey, Dieminion) this morning that the paramedics did their best, and that PushaTee has passed on.

All of the staffers here at EventHubs would like to express our condolences to PushaTee's friends and family. Please leave some kind words for the dearly departed in the comments below, in memory of him, if you can.

Grimmmz, a close friend of PushaTee, has made a tribute video in memory of the KI player, which you can check out below.

Mike Ross shares who he feels are the best/worst characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Earlier in the week, the people's champ spoke with us about his TFC performance and his days as a competitive player. Tonight, however, we have a special treat: Mike Ross tells us who he feels are the best/worst characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Although there are a few characters on this list that may not surprise you, Ross does have a number of interesting picks sitting among his selection.

We've already heard from Ross on Twitter that Dee Jay is the worst character in the game, and this wouldn't be a "best characters" list if Evil Ryu didn't make the cut. Still, Mike chose quite a few fighters that he thinks are solid in USF4, and some that he feels aren't so hot.

We don't want to give too much away, so go ahead and hit that jump to find out the rest!

A brawler/zoner hybrid, increased damage, and the solo act: Learn about Ferra/Torr's Mortal Kombat X variations here

NetherRealm Studios continues to spill the beans on what each character's Variations do in Mortal Kombat X. Tonight, we get a more in-depth explanation of Ferra/Torr's different options in the upcoming fighter.

What we have here are the Lackey, Vicious, and Ruthless Variations. One increases the duos damage output, another lets Torr battle solo, and the final Variation turns Ferra into a living projectile, creating a play-style that is both brawler and zoner-esque.

Yoshinori Ono to video games press: 'come down to San Francisco for my special announcement at Capcom Cup 2014, it will be worth your while'

At GameStart Asia this past weekend, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong (Singapore branch) arranged for a small handful of video games media outlets to attend a special group interview session with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono and Tomoaki Ayano, where we were allowed to ask about pretty much anything, except for maybe questions about competing platforms.

As you might expect, a varied bunch of questions were fielded from the various media representatives.

We're still in the middle of transcribing and sorting out all of that juicy information for you. In the meantime, however, we'd like to share with you one of the more interesting responses to have come out of Ono's mouth at the session. This is from a question we fielded, with regards to Ono's forthcoming announcement at Capcom Cup 2014.

KarbyP: So, Yoshinori Ono is slated to make a special announcement at the Capcom Cup venue in San Francisco on December 13. Can Ono tell us if this will be a major announcement, or a minor one? At the very least it won't be something lame like the release date of Omega Edition, right?

Topanga players at WNF for grudge matches? Alex Valle discusses the past, present and potential future of Level|Up and he wants YOUR input

Here we feature the second half of my interview with Mr. Street Fighter, Alex Valle.

Wednesday Night Fights started as a small, humble event in a garage that morphed into one of the biggest Street Fighter weeklies in the world. Alex Valle has grown and molded his tournament with the times keeping it relevant and enjoyable.

The introduction of grudge matches has seen a new element added to the event which has brought about much hype and excitement thus far. The question is, is that where the buck stops or are grudge matches we've seen just a prototype for something bigger?

'Who knows? What if we get Smug to battle Snake Eyez... or getting somebody from Topanga vs somebody from the Western Hemisphere to fight?" Valle asks the community to chime in and tell him what they want to see.

Valle also mentions how he wants to drive the lesser-known players in the community rise up and start being known and heard. Whatever he has in store for us we're pretty sure it's not going to disappoint.

Bonchan takes on the world: Justin Wong, Lap Chi, Mago, Gackt, Nekojita, Kazunoko, Itazan and more - Ultra Street Fighter 4 highlights

He's not the EVO 2014 champ. He may not have been the winner at Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show tournament. Neither is he the champ at the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Taito Arcade Japan National Finals, nor Taito Arcade's "B-est Cup" Japan Grand Finals.

But Bonchan was the runner-up at all of those tournaments. Plus he's the champion at Thaiger Uppercut 2014.

That puts him at just 44 points shy of 900 ranking points in the Capcom Pro Tour -- but I'm quite confident that Bonchan is a Super Saiyan 3 (SSJ3) class Sagat player, whose power level is over 9,000.

This man deserves a Tiger (Beer -- it's a leading premium brew from Singapore). Also: he deserves a spotlight reel highlighting some of his greatest moments in recent tournament history.

And that's exactly what vid maker The Beast has brought us this morning. Check it out below.

Vega's Rolling Izuna Drop, when traded, can freeze his opponent for about 5 minutes in Ultra Street Fighter 4 v1.03

In order to make Vega's Rolling Izuna Drop super connect with opponents when performed against the corner, Capcom had to make some modifications to the way the move worked -- and it appears that those modifications have resulted in this pretty neat (but probably impractical) bug in Ultra Street Fighter 4 v1.03.

When the second hit of Rolling Izuna Drop trades with Vega's opponent, it will freeze him or her in place. According to Momi_777, the Japanese player who found this bug, the freeze will last for about five minutes -- he found that out by waiting for Yun (the character he discovered this bug) to unpause in Training mode. After the character has unpaused, certain moves (like Yun's Dash Punch and Ultra Combo) will no longer be able to hit Vega.

You can see for yourself how this bug works in the first two animated GIFs from the left below. The third GIF shows what happens when you wait five minutes for the opponent to unpause, and the final one shows Yun's Dash Punch and Ultra Combo completely whiffing on Vega at point blank range, after he has recovered from the freeze.

Ryu's nifty new parry and Dhalsim's invincible chop attack: An intro to USF4 Omega mode changes ft. Ken, E. Honda, Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief, and Guile

ComboFiend over on Capcom Unity has shared a glimpse at some of the changes set to appear in Ultra Street Fighter 4's Omega Mode.

Tonight we learn about some of the alterations being made to the original 8 world warriors. There are a number of wacky tweaks set to debut when Omega Mode drops, and this writer would be lying if he said he wasn't excited to test them all out.

Below are a couple of changes explained by ComboFiend himself.

Ryu:

Hanagashi: Forward + HP + HK to activate damage-nullifying armor.

Some of you will get it just by looking at the screenshot, but this is pretty close to the parry system from SFIII.

While the move is active and after absorbing an attack, Ryu can use EX meter to deliver a follow-up strike. This gives him another form of defense in addition to the Focus Attack and is sure to completely change up his footsie approach!

Hit the jump to read about more of Ryu's changes, along with Dhalsim's invincible chop attack.
