Dash forward passes over Dee Jay for nasty mix up, lethal fake cross up, and more; V-Ryu shows the power of Makoto's EX Fukiage resets in USF4

Earlier today we stumbled upon a new video from Makoto extraordinaire V-Ryu that shows off what she can do using her EX Fukiage buff in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

There are a bevy of useful set-ups included here involving the beefed up special move used in conjunction with a jumping normal attack. Fuzzy guard on the taller characters in the game, ambiguous cross under mix-ups, and fake corner cross ups are what you'll find here, and most of these sequences lead to a quick stun.

Another great set-up to keep an eye out for is that which is performed on Dee Jay. After a back throw, Makoto can step over the downed fighter using her forward heavy kick. If she dashes forward after that, well, just be sure to see for yourself.

8-bit roundup: Poison's USF4 theme would fit perfectly in a Mega Man game; Dee Jay, T. Hawk, Cammy, and Fei Long stages hit you right in the nostalgia

Earlier today, 8-bit theme extraordinaire Mr. BulbaMike uploaded a brand new song conversion that features Poison's Ultra Street Fighter 4 track.

After hearing this new composition, (and having personally beaten Mega Man 1 - 6), I can say that this particular track sounds like it would fit right in as one of the robot villain stage themes.

Additionally, we have added in some of Mike's past works that include 8-bit renditions of the stage themes for T. Hawk, Cammy, Fei Long, and Dee Jay. Not only will these songs take you right back to playing Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers on your Super Nintendo, but the style of these tracks really add a retro feel to them.

As an added cherry on top, you will also find an 8-bit version of Decapre's Ultra Street Fighter 4 theme. Check them all out below, and feel free to let us know which you enjoyed most.

'Tier placing ain't nothing but a number, baby' - Amazing grand finals set between Julio's Yun and Hoodaman's E. Honda at Churning the Butter #2

It's fairly agreed upon that in Ultra Street Fighter 4, if Yun isn't the best character, he is at least among the very best. In a similar sense, many have said that E. Honda has fallen to the very bottom of the tiers, and isn't really viable to use anymore.

Despite this, and dabbling in Decapre for a while, pH|Hoodaman has decided to stick with his guns and bring the classic sumo wrestler into the spotlight once more against MMG|Julio, one of the USA's top Yun players. This match occured as the Grand Finals of Churning the Butter #2, a newly-established NorCal weekly tournament, with pH|Hoodaman coming from the Loser's Bracket.

You can find the matches below.

What can Guile do with two meters? More than you might think, as shown by this video

Guile has been a very popular character in the Street Fighter series since its rise to popularity back with Street Fighter 2 in the early '90s, but he's never been considered a very combo-heavy character, which still holds true in the Street Fighter 4 series.

That's not to say that he can't unleash some devilish combos, though. This video from Wade Sikander shows just what Guile can be capable of when he has two meters. Also worth noting is that these combos build one meter, so even though you'll have to start from two, the effective cost is just one meter.

You can find the video itself below.

Happy birthday? Nope! Merry Christmas! - one combo wipes out an entire team of three in this UMvC3 tournament clip

In a recent event streamed on the Air Juggle Twitch channel, an awesome moment was captured during the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament.

DCB|4th Star went up against Chris D in what appeared to be a one sided fight in favor of the latter. Chris D's Chris Redfield knocked out 4th Star's Dormammu, and things were looking just as bleak for his Dr. Doom. That's when Vergil appeared...

Feeling himself just a little too much, Chris D went for a Team Hyper Combo, and instead of dealing massive damage on 4th Star's Vergil, got caught in the Spiral Swords.

It looks like Christmas came early for the this Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 player.

Check out the footage below.

To defeat your enemy, you must first understand how they think - Footage of Bonchan using Rose in online ranked matches

After having become the Topanga A League champion last year, Bonchan was on a roll. At EVO 2014, he was in the best possible position one can be - in winner's side of Grand Finals for the biggest tournament of the year.

Yet, it all came crushing down once the eventual EVO 2014 champion, Olivier 'Luffy' Hay, confronted him from the loser's bracket with his signature Rose, and sent Bonchan's Sagat back home to Japan.

Perhaps in preparation for their next bout, Bonchan has now been spotted using Rose online. Is this signifying a character change, or is he simply trying to figure out how to fight against the character by fighting as the character? You be the judge.

Canada Cup's The Masters Series rescheduled until early 2015, EVO 2014 champion Luffy confirmed to compete

The Canada Cup Masters Series, originally set to take place in November, is an event that is being held in order to honor the tournament's past champions. MCZ|Daigo, Kazunoko, RZR|Xian, and QANBA|Xiao Hai have all been invited to compete, however, only the latter two players have confirmed that they will be in attendance.

Just the other day, Kazunoko commented on the status of his invitation over on the Topanga stream. The incredibly skilled Yun player stated that if the scheduled dates of The Masters Series conflict with those of the Topanga A League in Japan, then he will not be able to attend.

We have just received official word from the folks over at Canada Cup Gaming that The Masters Series has been rescheduled until early 2015. The decision was made in order to better align with Daigo and Kazunoko's schedules, and to deliver the best event possible.

"We want to do this event in a very specific way and would much rather compromise on the dates than the quality."
