The science of Hadouken: Man who seemingly channeled energy to ignite paper with bare hands inspired Street Fighter Assassin's Fist team

Whether or not you believe in ki or chi, you might find it interesting to know that the creators of Street Fighter Assassin's Fist drew inspiration to tell the story behind one the franchise's most iconic moves from a 1970's documentary called Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey.

A man believed to be named John Chang at one point seemingly ignited a piece of paper with his bare hands, and said he was able to do this by channeling inner energy, often referred to as chi or ki in Chinese or Japanese culture, respectively.

The Assassin's Fist's creators show footage of this happening from the documentary and talk about how this segment and other legends of channeling energy inspired them to tell the tale of how Ryu, Ken and others could harness and release this power in their series.

They also offer more of a look at the series they're working on, showing short segments of action featuring the main cast members.

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.

You can find all of the footage after the jump.

One of the most unique designs for a fighting game controller you may ever see - Terminator T-800 hitbox

Hitboxes are a pretty unique style of controller for fighting games, but since they lack a joystick, modders can come up with some really innovative ways to lay out their designs.

One such product popped up from RoBoBOBR, based off of the T-800 cyborgs from the Terminator movies.

If model numbers of cyborgs from science fiction films are a bit too far out of your knowledge range, it's the robot Arnold Schwarzenegger played, but without any of the living flesh around it. Check out the shots.

El Gato breaks Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 again! New snapback glitch discovered, makes for some very strange occurrences

NL|El Gato, a frequent Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 content creator, recently discovered a variation of the snapback glitch, that which snaps out a downed fighter and brings in the remaining two characters simultaneously.

This new glitch can only be recreated using characters that have a cinematic hyper combo, (except for Viewtiful Joe's Slow hyper combo and Amaterasu's level 3.) The original glitch was triggered by snapping in the second assist character, but in this one uses a snapback on the first assist.

Once that character jumps back on screen, if they perform a cinematic hyper combo on the aggressor, some... strange things take place. This video shows which of the Capcom side of characters can pull this off, and El Gato is already working on getting the Marvel side done.

You'll find the glitch video after the break.
