Justin Wong in the grand finals for USF4, UMvC3 & KI at Chile's GamerByte tournament; will he achieve a grand slam? Find out in these videos

EG|Justin Wong was invited as a special guest to the GamerByte tournament in Chile this past weekend.

The Evil Geniuses sponsored player entered in multiple games, and made it into the grand finals of three titles: Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Killer Instinct.

It may not be much of a surprise to see a player as talented as Justin make it to the grand finals in these three games at a Chile tournament. Nevertheless, his ascension to the grand finals did not go unchallenged: Justin was actually on the losers' side of the brackets for UMvC3 and KI.

Will EG|Justin Wong be able to reset the brackets for UMvC3 and KI, and ultimately achieve a grand slam in winning at all three titles? Find out in these official YouTube video archives provided by VersusCL.

Ryu's ambiguous corner cross-under mix-up, Akuma whiffed Super setup that gives a guaranteed UC2, Tiger Shot loops - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

CMV maker Luparez has been spending quite a bit of time training in the lab in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and he's finally ready to share his lab findings with the rest of us -- it's been two months since his last video!

In this multi-character CMV, Luparez not only performs some of the most fanciful combos possible in the game, but also demonstrates some of the mix-up and reset opportunities possible with many of the characters featured.

There's a lot to see here. My personal favorite: cancelling Akuma's fireball with his Raging Demon super, in order to force his opponent to jump for a guaranteed Ultra Combo 2.

All that and more in Luparez's "Experiments in the Lab 9" CMV below.

'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.

Tokido's Akuma red fireball negative edge setup; a video response to Xian's Academy and Ultra Street Fighter 4 tutorial

On an episode of Xian's Academy earlier this year, the Singapore champion had been demonstrating how to perform one of Tokido's signature Akuma corner setups -- air fireball into (negative edge) red fireball block string -- when he admitted that he didn't quite understand the rationale behind using negative edge to perform the red fireball follow-up.

In order to perform the red fireball with negative edge, you'd have to hold down the HP button shortly after throwing out an air fireball, then input semi-circle backwards and release the HP button when Akuma's on the ground.

This seems like a bit of a hassle and both Xian and his co-host on that episode, Leslie, did not understand why you couldn't just perform the red fireball regularly. So the Singapore champ threw the mystery out to his viewers:

"I hope someone who understands this stuff could tell me about it, since I literally have no idea," Xian requested on the episode.

And somebody who goes by "Jay Rego" on YouTube responded.

Yoga Tauntastrophe! Dhalsim's taunt works as a novel mixup tool in Ultra Street Fighter 4

It was always amazing in Third Strike how every taunt had some minor purpose. Sure, some were obviously more effective than others, but it felt oddly satisfying to have that extra, unique move. With Ultra Street Fighter 4, we've seen the return of a select few taunts being useful. For example, Dudley's rose is back as a corner pressure tool to help with mixups on knockdown. Dan's taunt builds meter and changes his air trajectory.

But in a surprising twist, Dhalsim can use his taunt as a mixup tool in Ultra Street Fighter 4. In the video, by activating his taunt in close range to Blanka, Dhalsim stretches into the air and leans over his opponent only to teleport to the other side before attacking. While it's certainly shocking to see, the usefulness of the trick will will likely decrease as more people see it done.

The question to its longevity is if it can be ambiguous with a slight change in Dhalsim's positioning making it difficult to tell which side he'll land on. Nonetheless, this could be the perfect way to clinch a close match with someone unfamiliar with the trick.

Check out the short video below to see it in action.

Target Acquired: Hard tag combos into Chris Redfield for the majority of the UMvC3 cast

Ever wanted to play Chris Redfield in UMvC3 but thought to yourself, 'Oh boy, Chris sure looks like fun but there just simply aren't enough hard tag combos to tag him in with. Why aren't there some videos featuring some cool jazzy music that teach me how to hard tag Chris in?'

Well now you have no excuse because GcYoshi has developed three videos in which he shows us a myriad of different combos from a huge portion of the cast.

Chris is a character that builds meter well and does some good damage. Mixing these combos into your Chris game play is sure to grab you a few more victories than usual.

VRyu's Makoto makes incredible reads, the Smug army invades, and more – this stunning, 15-minute USF4 highlight video by i Shoryuken makes time vanish

Highlight videos have become fairly common in the fighting game community. From the well done Spotlight series to YogaFlame24's selected replays and others, having an individual compilation standout has become increasingly difficult.

So it gives even more credit when a video like i Shoryuken's latest highlight reel is so intense and tightly packed that its full fifteen minutes seem to go by in an instant. There are so many excellent moments representing a large portion of the cast and so little downtime or fluff that it easily raises the bar for what to expect from selected Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage.

To lose a quarter of an hour in a matter of seconds, check out iShoryuken's video below.

Yoshi Bomb High Jump glitch lets him timer-scam, Villager warps when he pockets Pac-man's trampoline - Super Smash Bros. 3DS bugs roundup

Yoshi might very well be the most glitch-prone character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

We reported last month that Yoshi's Egg Lay neutral B special move can supersize his opponents over and over in Multi-Man Smash, and a little more than a week ago that his up+B Egg Throw special lets him warp back to the edge of the stage when performed in a specific sequence.

But it looks like we missed one that might have some consequences in competitive play, should custom moves be allowed in a tournament. Some of you may already know this, but when Yoshi replaces his up+B special with the High Jump custom move, by performing a down+B Yoshi Bomb and quickly following that up with a High Jump, you can launch Yoshi into the stratosphere of the stage without killing him -- essentially allowing you to timer-scam whenever you'd like.

You can take a look at how that works in the video below, along with two other bugs in the game we're taking a quick look at today.
