Tarezou (Adon) takes down Team Mad Catz single-handedly - Taito Arcade Nationals 3v3 USF4 Tournament YouTube match archives

Many great battles were played at the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Taito Arcade Japan National Finals held in Shinjuku, Tokyo last Satruday.

The big story of that day, of course, was Nishikin's (Blanka) triumphant victory over Kazunoko (Yun) and Bonchan (Sagat) to clinch a much-coveted qualifying spot into the Capcom Cup 2014 finals in San Francisco this December. That was quite the upset.

But it wasn't the only upset; just as amazing is Shikkari Dynamic's victory over Team Mad Catz in the grand finals of the 3v3 single elimination team tournament. Adon player Tarezou from Shikkari Dynamic (which loosely translates to "Properly Dynamic") pulled off an unbelievable one-character victory (OCV) against Team Mad Catz.

Even Mad Catz's very own Zhi was in disbelief. Team Mad Catz leader MCZ|Daigo had, after all, obliterated AVM|Gamerbee when the two played in the grand finals of the Taiwan leg of Capcom Pro Tour Asia.

To dismantle not only Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, but also his teammates MCZ|Mago and MCZ|Tokido with a character whose match-up all three of them are no doubt keenly familiar with, is quite the feat.

And you can now watch the entirety of that coup, as well as all of the 3v3 matches that day, in the video embedded below from the Capcom Fighters YouTube channel.

Mega Man's got combos: Offset the Super Fighting Robot's low damage output with these nifty tricks in Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Mega Man was one of the first characters in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS that I really enjoyed playing with. Out of the five characters playable in the Smash 4 demo that was put out prior to the game's release, Capcom's super fighting robot had been my go-to guy for combating mighty CPU Lv. 9s.

I especially loved the way his pellet attacks worked as an action-starter of some sort, similar to Ryu's fireballs in Street Fighter, and I used it mainly to force the CPU opponents to block so that I could go for a grab into a combo.

But then the game came out. And I realized how incredibly low Mega Man's damage output was. I switched to playing a different character (Link) soon afterwards.

But YouTube user Dezmu didn't give up on Mega Man. Together with Kuroudo and MDSmashVids, they've found some great tech for the Capcom guest character, that you can use to do a decent chunk of damage. My personal favorite: when used as an item the Metal Blade can be used to cancel your dash approach, allowing you to combo into Mega Man's up A for that meaty uppercut.

Don't give up, Mega Man fans! Watch this video, hold out hope, and maybe one day Capcom will see the light! keep on fighting for everlasting peace!

Get nerfed! Meta Knight's hitboxes severely toned down in Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Hey, remember Meta Knight from Super Smash Bros. Brawl?

You know, that small character that did massive damage, was extremely agile, had top-priority moves, could essentially fly horizontally, had extremely long range and had an anti-edge guard move? For time's sake we won't open volume two of the 'Why Meta Knight was Broken' encyclopedia.

Well the good guys at Nintendo seem to have heard your universal cries for nerfs. Here we have a video depicting just how much worse some of Meta Knight's hit boxes have become in the new Smash Bros. 3DS.

Hit the jump to see the video.

Decapre fully 'parries' Cody's Super Combo, does 2 EX Scramble Breaks into UC2, fireball Ultra into EX Spiral Arrow and Psycho Sting - USF4 CMV

pepopulo is back with another Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV, this time centering on Decapre, a character whom, sure, you've already seen quite a bit of from the likes of NuckleDu, Uryo, and PH|Hoodaman.

But this is different. Whereas the aforementioned competitive players are mostly focused on tech that can be applied in tense tournament moments, pepopulo's Decapre CMV focuses on style.

Running at over three minutes long, there's bound to be a Decapre combo or two that you haven't quite seen below in this finely-edited CMV. Check it out below.

Daigo gets outzoned by El Fuerte, Infiltration (Rolento) vs. Dunhill (Gen), JaycetheAce and Arturo Sanchez jump on the Decapre train - USF4 replays

We've got a great line-up of Ultra Street Fighter 4 Xbox Live replays for your viewing pleasure this morning.

First up, MCZ|Daigo goes up against a Japanese El Fuerte player, Zeny53 on Xbox Live, who manages to out-zone one of the original masters of zoning in Street Fighter. This guy may not be Pepeday, but watching him play has certainly made Alioune Sensei's day.

Next, watch two of the world's greatest multi-character specialists -- South Korea's Infiltration and Japan's Dunhill -- slug it out in a high-level match using characters they wouldn't really consider their mains: Rolento and Gen, respectively.

And finally, it looks like two more top players in the FGC -- YBK|JaycetheAce and TS|Arturo Sanchez -- are beginning to realize the hidden potential embedded deep within Decapre. Watch them take on a Yun and another Decapre player, respectively, in two separate matches.

All that and more, in this latest episode round-up of Ultra Street Fighter 4 Xbox Live ranked match replays.

Daigo faces Mago, his Mad Catz brethren; Momochi, Kazunoko, Bonchan, and more take center stage - USF4 Taito Arcade Nationals replays

Capcom Fighters returns with more amazing Ultra Street Fighter 4 action from the Taito Arcade Japan National Finals that took place over in Shinjuku, Tokyo the weekend before last.

Last time, we saw Tarezou of Shikkari Dynamic dismantle the entire Mad Catz team during the 3v3 portion of the tournament. Tonight, we bring to you the Taito Finals' star-studded singles bouts.

In this assortment of matches, you'll witness MCZ|Daigo Umehara take on his Mad Catz brethren, MCZ|Mago, as they both use their Ultra Street Fighter 4 mains -- Evil Ryu and Yang, respectively. Additionally, players such as the EVO 2014 runner-up, Bonchan, EG|Momochi, Kazunoko, Nishikin, and many more battle it out for Street Fighter supremacy.

You can catch all of the action below.

Desk is back with a new combo video showcasing El Fuerte landing 26 extremely difficult hits, includes trailer of new CMV for USF4

Desk, the mastermind behind some of the most difficult to perform combos in Street Fighter 4, has put his hands to the test with El Fuerte. This time, however, he has also included up to the second notation of every single attack and motion his hands make. This coincides with him recording his stick, so you are welcome to imitate everything he does if you can.

Check out the video below to see Desk work his magic.

Video: Super Smash Bros. 3DS start-up times cut by half on the New 3DS portables, C-stick allows for charged Smash attacks, back aerial moves

We've known for a while the the CPU on the New Nintendo 3DS and its XL cousin (or "LL" in Japan) is quite a bit faster than the existing model. That extra processing power in the New 3DS is the chief reason why its C-stick feature is supported in Super Smash Bros. 3DS, whereas the Circular Pad Pro attachment for the older 3DS models is not.

But just exactly how much faster is the New 3DS's CPU? How much of a difference will it make in actual usage scenarios? Those are the questions 4Gamer have looked into, by comparing the loading times of three items on the newer and older portables: time it takes for the system to power on, time it takes for a game (Super Smash Bros. 3DS, in this case) to boot up, and how long it takes for the different 3DS consoles to download Super Smash Bros. 3DS's latest patch.

The results turned out to be a lot more significant than you'd imagine -- across the board, the speeds are pretty much cut by half.

Daigo vs. The Public 'Win A PS4' challenge will be played on Omega Edition: Ultra Street Fighter 4 at GameStart 2014

It's not been confirmed yet, and the rules are subject to change, but according to RZR|Xian the Ultra Street Fighter 4 Omega Edition exhibition match between him and MCZ|Daigo is likely to be a race-to-5 with random selects.

So what happens if neither RZR|Xian or MCZ|Daigo picks the Omega Edition character you want to see? Does that mean you're completely out of luck?

Well, not quite.

As it turns out, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong (Singapore branch) and Capcom are also organizing an MCZ|Daigo vs. The Public segment, similar to the one conducted recently in Hong Kong.

Except, this time, the public will be playing against MCZ|Daigo on Omega Edition. Oh, and if you manage to beat him, you win a PS4 too.

801 Strider's tier rankings for Abel in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Tonight we add to our collection of Ultra Street Fighter 4 tier rankings a list for Abel. This isn't just Joe Shmoe's tier list, however; this one comes to us courtesy of 801 Strider.

Strider has been on the tournament scene for quite some time now, and you may have seen him most recently compete at The Fall Classic at which he placed in the top 8, and even made our highlight story for his sick whiff punishes against YBK|Jayce The Ace.

The Abel player feels that the character's good/bad match-ups fall fairly close in numbers: voting 16 favorable and 14 unfavorable. The remaining 13 characters fall under the 5-5 category. But which characters fall under what category? Click the image below to find out.

Cinder's infinite forced Nintendo to manually update 17,000 arcade cabinets: Did You Know Gaming? Killer Instinct ft. Maximilian

This video is fascinating!

Did You Know Gaming takes a look back at the history of the original Killer Instinct and offers some pretty interesting facts about the game's release and development.

The initial arcade release saw great success with some machines raking in over $1,000 weekly. People quickly discovered an infinite combo with Cinder and in order to retain relevance, Nintendo released a team to travel out and patch every last one of the 17,000 cabinets.

It's always fun to learn about character inspiration, difficulties in game development and the embarrassing mistakes that all sit behind the scenes of our favorite games.

Video: Rosalina has an infinite combo that works on Sheik (and possibly other characters) in Super Smash Bros. 3DS

As if the ability to perform multiple air dodges during her jump, a god-tier air recovery move, and a semi-controllable buddy that can cover her weakspots isn't enough, it looks the developers of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS also accidentally gave Rosalina an infinite combo.

A Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS player has discovered (and documented on video) that it is possible for Rosalina to perform an infinite combo on Sheik, by simply having Luma land the first two hits of her regular A attack over and over on her opponent.

'If you want to evolve into a pro player... you gotta pick T. Hawk' - Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross Ep. 36

This week's episode of Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross begins innocuously with a fan question addressed to the Cross Counter duo.

"Hey Gootecks [and Mike Ross], what do you recommend for players like me to evolve into a pro player?" LABBEdpj asks.

Gooteck's answer to this hard question? "Pick T. Hawk," he says as he selects the Indian warrior from Mexico on the character-selection screen, to walk the talk.

Other tough questions being answered in this latest episode of Ultra Excellent Adventures include the following exchange between Gootecks and Mike Ross.

Gootecks: Haolipino... Haoli means "White", like a White person, in Hawaiian.
Mike Ross: Oh, so you think he's half-White, half-Hawaiian.
Gootecks: No no no, he's Hawaiian. He's half-white, he's a Filipino -- but he's Hawaiian.
Mike Ross: Wait, what if he's, like, a quarter-Hawaiian, and a quarter-White and... or...

Find out Gootecks's response to that in the new episode, embedded below.
