'If they're in a hurry for a response, I guess I'll have to decline', says Kazunoko regarding the upcoming Canada Cup Master Series

We reported recently on a very exciting pay-per-view event set to be hosted by the Canada Cup crew entitled the Canada Cup Master Series, which will attempt to pit the 4 Canada Cup champions together with 4 other players who will be decided by qualifiers in a first-to-7 round robin, similar to how the Topanga League runs.

While the 2012 and 2013 champions, RZR|Xian and Qanba|Xiao Hai respectively, have confirmed their attendance, the 2010 and 2011 champions, MCZ|Daigo and Kazunoko, have not. When asked about the issue, Kazunoko said that he might not attend the event after all, citing scheduling issues.

This was mentioned while Kazunoko was streaming Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches, and EventHubs' very own MajinTenshinhan has stepped in to translate what Kazunoko had to say.

Kazunoko: Am I attending Canada Cup? Well, that all depends on Topanga A League, doesn't it? Well, if they overlap, I won't be able to... It's difficult. Yeah, difficult.

Continue below to read the rest of what Kazunoko had to say.

'Let us engage in fishticuffs!' - live stream pits two fish against each other in Street Fighter 2

Over the many, many years of playing Street Fighter I've heard things such as "baited" and "fishing for an attack," but this isn't quite what I had in mind...

Inspired by the recent "Fish Plays Pokemon" broadcast, this aquatic live stream experience pits two fish (Aquarius and Robert the Bruce) against each other in Street Fighter 2.

The sea creatures input attacks by swimming to designated areas in their tank that are marked with specific buttons. 2-player mode is made possible by the use of color detection, and both combatants can perform moves by swimming to different areas.

If you're looking to pass some time and become hypnotized against your will by the marvel that is two fish playing Street Fighter, be sure to tune in between 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. EST to catch the broadcast.

Catch all the action below.

No hitstun deterioration? Another axed feature accessed in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 leads to an endless amount of indefinite combos

Just after discovering the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 unused feature of characters being able to instantly tag out, TheSkyrae has now revealed a new file in the game allowing zero hitstun deterioration.

This essentially allows every character to combo indefinitely. The video even demonstrates some of the devastation teams can release on their helpless opponents.

If you want to enjoy the extremely broken version for yourself, TheSkyrae also includes a how-to guide in the "About" section.

Check below to get a taste of how crazy Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 truly could have been.

Capcom to host opt-in Ultra Street Fighter 4 beta program for network fixes on Steam

Shortly after the PC release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, numerous Steam users stepped forward to report severe issues with online modes, stating that they were virtually unplayable. Capcom was quick to assure players that they are working on a solution for any network issues that fans may be experiencing.

Although these fixes will be made behind-the-scenes, it seems that the company will be giving a select number of folks the chance to help test some of the network corrections they implement. According to wbacon, a Capcom representative over on the Steam forums, they will be hosting an opt-in beta program to "test the patch in open water" before it is released to the public.

Wbacon was unable to say exactly when this beta test would begin, however, due to the fact that the network maintenance is still underway. More details are expected to drop soon, so be sure to check out the Steam forums periodically for more information.

Odd afterimage-removal glitch causes Yang's Super Combo to lose its effectiveness after Yun's UC1 is performed in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Victor Rivera has discovered and documented on video a peculiar Ultra Street Fighter 4 glitch involving the afterimages that accompany some of Yun and Yang's attacks.

According to Victor, the afterimages that trail behind Yun when he does his dash punch may on occasion disappear completely after an Ultra Combo is performed -- and if your opponent happens to be Yang, this glitch will remove Yang's afterimages as well.

What begins innocuously as a simple graphical effect glitch turns out to possess very real gameplay repercussions, as Victor discovers that Yang's Seiei Enbu Super Combo ceases to function properly when the afterimages are gone, as you'll see in the video below.

Trying to out tune some of Street Fighter's best – Essenthy makes new, clean arrangements of Street Figher 3 Third Strike themes entirely from scratch

Street Fighter 3 Third Strike holds strong in people's hearts as being one of the most eccentric entries to the fighter. Along with the game's unique parry mechanic and cast, the third entry's music possessed ambitious steps into jazz and hip-hop.

Essenthy Onigami has decided to see how much further he can take the original tracks. And the results are impressive. What's perhaps most striking is how much these renditions honor the original pieces. Instead of trying to overhaul as ambitiously as Online Edition's soundtrack did, Essenthy has chosen to make his versions clean and subtle.

Check below to visit Third Strike's music for your first time again.
