Decapre's air Spiral Arrow safe on block from proper range, running HHS attack is unsafe: Move list, combos and more shown off in new USF4 video

Gamekult has released a brand new Ultra Street Fighter 4 video that takes a closer look at Decapre.

This video runs through virtually everything on her move list, along with a demonstration of her walk speed, some moves that are safe/unsafe, combos, setups, and more.

The original Final Round 17 build of Ultra Street Fighter 4 was used for this compilation, so a few things shown here have since been changed, such as her grounded Spiral Arrow being removed and her teleports being given after images. Note: Ultra Street Fighter 4 is still in development, so Decapre is still susceptible to undergoing further changes.

Still, we get to see many of her normal attacks in play, different teleport setups, her crazy-fast overhead attack, and more. Interestingly enough, we see that her air Spiral Arrow is safe on block from the proper range, while her rapid hands attack, (similar to E. Honda's Hundred Hand Slap), is quite unsafe.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 goes into service in Japanese arcades April 17

The arcade version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 now has a final release date.

At the tail end of the Super Street Fighter 4 CR Edition launch commemoration event, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono announced that the highly-anticipated fighting game will go into service in Japanese arcades on April 17.

Decapre, the 5th new character to be introduced in Ultra Street Fighter 4, will not be playable in the arcade version of the game at first, as Capcom is still fine-tuning the character. She will be added to the roster of the arcade version at a later date, via an update patch.

On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be released first as a digital upgrade for owners of Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition 2012 in June. A full retail version of the game for PS3 and X360 will subsequently come out in August, alongside a PC release.

Is pro gaming now considered a sport? One of South Korea's top universities think so, and is now accepting gamers as student athletes

It's no secret that South Korea is a country that is very accepting of pro gaming as a true career. Titles such as Starcraft and League of Legends have flourished as a sport in the country, and they're showing no signs of lowering their production values for gaming events.

This, however, is a step even larger than what we've previously seen. Reportedly, one of South Korea's top 10 schools, Chung-Ang University, is set to start accepting competitive gamers the same way they accept traditional athletes.

K-Brad: I might not play Cammy anymore, I might play Decapre; That mask? I'm ready for it - SCR champ talks EG sponsorship, character choice, and more

Lone Star Gamer caught up with the SoCal Regionals 2014 champion, Kenneth "EG|K-Brad" Bradley, over at Texas Showdown last week. During their conversation, K-Brad discussed a wide array of topics including how he went about scoring his newly acquired sponsorship, character choice, his experience at ESGN TV's Fight Night, and more.

On the subject of his main character, K-Brad states that he actually liked Cammy much before she was considered top tier in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012. Although he's since made a name for himself using the blonde rushdown fighter, he mentions that he may actually be dropping Cammy in exchange for Decapre once Ultra Street Fighter 4 hits. "I might not play Cammy anymore; I might play Decapre because, that mask? Decapre in that mask? Oh my god, I'm ready for that!"

He also discusses his time at ESGN TV's Fight Night in Berlin, Germany. The Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 show featured numerous top-level competitors, and during his time there, K-Brad felt as though he wasn't quite on their level of skill. Upon returning home, K-Brad buckled down and practiced every day, which he feels led to his victory at SCR 2014.

Major League Baseball star Hunter Pence has a pretty sick Green Arrow in Injustice: Gods Among Us

IGN's Destin Legarie recently sat down to play a few games of Injustice: Gods Among Us, and with him he had a special guest opponent. Major League Baseball athlete, and outfielder for the San Francisco Giants, Hunter Pence stopped by to get in some matches.

Despite devoting his life to being an MLB star, it seems that Pence has clocked in a great amount of time playing Injustice. As you can see in the following footage, the Giants' outfielder not only has a solid understanding of the game mechanics, but also has a pretty sick Green Arrow.

Not only that, but Pence mentions in the video that he enjoys watching Injustice streams in his spare time. It's always a treat to see people in other specialties enjoying fighting games and taking the time to acquire the knowledge.

USF4's Red Focus intended for casual players, delayed wake-up made for hardcore competitors; Ayano says Ryu users will enjoy playing Poison

Ultra Street Fighter 4's assistant producer, Tomoaki Ayano, spoke to Siliconera once again in order to discuss the upcoming SF4 series update. This particular interview focuses mainly on the subject of complexity, and if USF4 may become too complicated with all of the new game mechanics being added.

To better address this question, Ayano starts out by explaining the thought process behind creating both Ultra Street Fighter 4's Red Focus and delayed wake-up mechanics. He admits that Red Focus was created with casual players in mind.

"It [Red Focus] was conceived as a technique to deal with incoming multi-hit attacks via simple button input," the assistant producer says. "We see it as a way to bring more casual users into the fold and reignite interest among players who may have been sitting out of the Street Fighter IV series until now."

With Killer Instinct's large and final season 1 update dropping yesterday, Maximilian took to his live stream in search for the arcade mode's final boss. It has since been confirmed that Shadow Jago is indeed the last adversary you'll be facing in the arcade mode, but this time he isn't just a costume swap.

Additionally, the ending that Maximilian received hinted at a new character to the Killer Instinct franchise, deemed, "ARIA." This mysterious combatant is involved with UltraTech, and is undoubtedly a teaser of what's to come in season 2.
