Juri can parry too?! Armor cancelling Ultra 1 leaves her opponents open for big punishes in Ultra Street Fighter 4

A YouTube user by the name of boitacarton recently uploaded footage of a technique that goes heavily underutilized by Juri players in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and may not be known to the average player.

By armor canceling her EX Counter -- a maneuver that allows certain characters to cancel an EX special move into another move and absorb one hit at the expense of spending no meter -- Juri can cancel straight into her Ultra 1. This parry-like tech allows her to absorb an oncoming attack, then follow up with a big punish using the custom combo Ultra.

It should be noted that Juri's counter loses to armor breaking attacks, so this cannot be used against any attack that does so. Having said that, this can be great for stopping cross ups, certain special moves, and more, as seen in the video.

You can check out Juri's armor cancel Ultra in action below.

Chun-Li's EX Spinning Bird Kick ghosts through Sagat – another strange Ultra Street Fighter 4 glitch

Update: As some of you have pointed out, Chun-Li's EX Spinning Bird Kick whiffing on Sagat as in the video below is not exactly a glitch, and is something that has been in the game since vanila SF4. Still, this is a piece of match-up knowledge that players unfamiliar with Chun-Li may not know about.

Earlier: Another glitch has shown its ugly head in Ultra Street Fighter 4, this time submitted by YouTube user Bruno Silva Ber.

The footage reveals Sagat jumping in as Chun-Li tries to anti-air with her EX Spinning Bird Kick. Instead of Sagat getting hit across the screen or even stuffing her attack, he instead lands healthily on the ground as Chun-Li's legs spin helplessly through her adversary.

Hit the jump to watch Sagat suddenly possess the physical body of a ghost.

Is Marth overpowered? Counter can KO an opponent at 55% damage in Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Back in June, a bunch of Smash players who made it to Nintendo's E3 invitational Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS tournament came up with a rough tier list based on their brief impressions with the game's characters in that build.

On that list, Marth was said to be mid-tier. Of course, the game isn't out yet -- his competitive effectiveness as a character could certainly change once the game is out and the Smash community has had sufficient time exploring its ins and outs.

But for now, the consensus among the players who've went hands-on with previous build seems to be that Marth is certainly not top-tier, or even high-tier.

That impression may soon change however, as an anonymous user on the 2ch Japanese forums have posted an animated gif that shows Marth knocking out Mega Man, at 55% damage, in a single strike with his Counter (down+B) special move.

Desk returns to show that Chun-Li's LP into Lightning Legs is an excellent pressure tool, and incredibly difficult to perform in USF4

Combo wizard Desk returns with another Ultra Street Fighter 4 demonstration. Today we learn how to combo Chun-Li's light punch into Lightning Legs, and how it can be applied in a match.

Desk explains that this particular combo must be performed in the span of 12 frames. With the 3 frame start up of LP, and the 9 frames of hitstop, you'll have to input a kick button on every other frame.

This technique works as a great pressure tool, as LP is much faster than crouching HP. However, the difficulty level for pulling this off is much higher than the cr. HP - Lightning Legs BnB.

Check out Desk's latest tutorial below.

Tekken 7: We'll finally get to see it running on October 3-5, arcade version will also feature online matchmaking

On the Sugamo Cup TTT2 tournament stream, Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada revealed that Tekken 7 will be the first fighting game in the arcades to feature online matchmaking.

The feature falls in line with previous comments Harada made, on wanting to include a feature that would make it easier for players of similar skill level to play against one another in the arcades.

Aside from online matchmaking in the arcade version, Harada also announced that fans in Japan will finally get their first look -- and hands-on -- of the game on the weekend of October 3 to 5.

Two Backstreet Boys hits as performed by Justin Wong, PR Balrog, MarkMan, and more - meet the FGC's newest boy-band

Yes, folks. You read that headline correctly. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried...

In some lighthearted news to end our day here at EventHubs, we bring to you a couple of videos that recently surfaced on the interwebz and made the rounds through social media.

What we have here is two karaoke performances featuring a handful of very familiar faces in the fighting game community as they sing two -- that's right, two -- different Backstreet Boys classics: "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely" and "I Want it That Way."

Among the pack you'll easily spot Justin Wong, PR Balrog, and CoolGrayAJ of Evil Geniuses. Also, look closely at the fellow standing in the back of the line-up and you'll see that it is none other than the arcade stick guru himself, Mad Catz's MarkMan.

I really can't say much else about these videos that the headline doesn't already say for itself. Hit the jump to witness the might of the FGC's newest boy-band: The Backdash Boys!

Nemo shares his Ultra Street Fighter 4 Rolento tier list

Coming off of his win at West Coast Warzone 4, and just after our Round Table discussing the event, BE|Nemo took to Twitter in order to share his Ultra Street Fighter 4 Rolento tier list.

Each of the characters are organized in three different sections: 6-4 or higher, even, and 4-6 or lower. Not only that, but Nemo lists each character with a 1-43 rank. This number indicates the level of difficulty the match-up is for Rolento, with lower numbers being easiest and higher numbers more difficult. (i.e. Gouken is Rolento's easiest match-up and ranks #1, whereas Yun is ranked #43 due to being the most difficult.

Nemo added on Twitter that he feels Rolento is actually a difficult character to learn, but that he is capable of securing wins. "He is really fun, so try him out," he says.

You cand find the full listing below.

First in-game glimpse of Maya in Killer Instinct season 2; Microsoft releases teaser image

Just a few moments ago, creative director over at Microsoft, Adam Isgreen, gave us our first glimpse at Killer Instinct season 2's Maya over on Twitter.

Much like past hints from the MS representative, in this photo we can only see a partial shot of the character. This particular teaser gives us a quick look at Maya's leg and her dagger.

"Ok, fine. Blurry leg it is. This is all you're getting until the trailer, so savor it!," Isgreen writes on Twitter.

Mega Man has a combo breaker? First major glitch of Super Smash Bros. 4 found in the 3DS demo version

Glitches are a common occurence in fighting games, and Smash Bros. is definitely no exception. In fact, many of the high-level techniques that have made Melee into what it is today were in fact glitches.

But this seems like a glitch of an entirely different sort, giving one character a marked advantage over others. What this video suggests is that Mega Man can escape certain combos, which would essentially mean that one character, or certain characters, can use free combo breakers. Check out the video below to see it in practice.

If you thought Vergil was motivated before, think again - This new X-Factor conversion makes him even more deadly than he used to be

There's one character in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that people unanimously agree is, if not the best in the game, then at the very least in the top 3 characters of the game.

Dante's less humorous brother Vergil has proven himself to be a true force to be reckoned with in the game, and it's nigh impossible to see a top 8 without at least 2 or 3 teams with this particular son of Sparda in them.

However, there is no such thing as perfection. No matter how good you are, you can always improve. Unfortunately, Vergil got the memo.

These new X-Factor variations do more damage, kill quicker (resulting in more X-Factor time to spend) and grant you positive meter in the end. Look no further than below to see them in action.

The Dhalsim Daigo doesn't want to play, YHC-Mochi, takes on Poongko in a best-of-5 Ultra Street Fighter 4 set

Poongko may not have been able to make it to EVO this year. But thanks to Capcom Cup Asia and The Machine's very own Twitch channel, recently the world has been able to bear witness to Poongko's remarkable play in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Although there aren't a lot of high-level players in Korea that Poongko can spar with, since the connection over there is good enough for him to play with Japanese players at a low latency, Poongko's been getting matched up with notable players from Japan fairly often on Xbox Live.

Most recently, he's done a long set with YHC-Mochi, who MCZ|Daigo named as the one Japanese player he'd hate to have to fight against at an overseas tournament.

They've played so many ranked matches that FinestFighters was able to edit them together into a best-of-5 set, which you can watch below -- find out which stretchy-arm character specialist comes out on top.
