A thorn in the jaguar's paw? GamerBee faces one of his greatest challenges yet: A Zangief player named GOGO BABY CHAN

AVM|GamerBee recently uploaded a great set of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 matches between himself and an exceptional Zangief player by the name of GOGO BABY CHAN.

The two players battle it out for nearly 40 minutes, and GamerBee even commented about just how good this Zangief player is over on his personal Twitter account.

It's rare that we see either Adon or Zangief played on a high level, (sans the few tournament players who still use these characters competitively), so this is definitely a treat for anyone looking for some great SSF4 AE v2012 action, minus the top tiers.

Job 'Flocker' Figueroa and Dexter 'Tampa Bison' James no longer on team Empire Arcadia

Job "Flocker" Figueroa, one of the best Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players on the scene today, announced via Twitter that he is no longer a part of team Empire Arcadia. This makes Flocker a free agent, and eligible to be picked up by any other teams that sponsor fighting gamers.

Additionally, Dexter 'Tampa Bison' James, best known for his success in Street Fighter X Tekken, also announced his departure from EMP earlier this week.

Three players have now taken their leave from Empire Arcadia this year. K-Brad was the first to announce his withdrawal from the gaming team, and has since signed with team Evil Geniuses, joining the likes of EG|Justin Wong and EG|PR Balrog.

Daigo, Fuudo, Tokido and top notch Hakan player Ebi square off in SSF4 AE v2012 CR replays

If you didn't catch the live stream of the SSF4 AE v2012 CR tournament earlier today, you missed some excellent matches between MCZ|Daigo, MCZ|Tokido, RZR|Fuudo and a very strong Hakan player who goes by the name of Ebi@Baki-Zei.

Replays of the matches have now been uploaded to YouTube, so you can watch the exciting Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 sets between these players.

I highly recommend checking out Ebi's set against -R- as you don't get to see many Hakan's play at that high of a level.

Greninja is a speedy character with a counter, chargeable projectiles, and possibly teleports: Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS trailer analysis

A huge wave of Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS news hit yesterday, and much of it was relative to the new, playable additions to the Smash roster. Of the 5 characters revealed, (4 of which are returning from past Smash titles), there was one fighter who is completely new to the franchise; Greninja is a Pokemon from the X & Y series, and he will be featured in both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the new Smash.

The Nintendo Direct broadcast yesterday was jam-packed with information, and some things may have fell to the wayside. Luckily, GameXplain took a closer look at the Greninja trailer, and has put together a video that analyzes what we were shown.

GameXplain points out that Greninja will fall under the "speedy character" archetype, using multi-hit attacks and great mobility. Some of the attacks we see in the trailer include chargeable projectiles, Substitute (a counter move), and what looks like a teleport.

You'll find this Greninja trailer breakdown after the break.
