First look at Phase-4, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade's newest fighter - combo trailer

Earlier this month, it was revealed that a brand new fighter would be entering the Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate mix soon. Phase-4, a hooded Kasumi clone created by the M.I.S.T. organization, receives her first gameplay trailer today.

This is the first time we actually see Phase-4 in action, and this footage focuses on showing what this new character is capable of with the use of combos.

Although this is just a taste of what the Kasumi clone has to offer, we can expect much more footage to surface soon as Team Ninja and Tecmo Koei will be holding arcade location tests with the latest build of the game beginning March 18.

Dieminion: 'This could very well be the year a US player wins EVO', EventHubs exclusive interview covers Guile changes, new titles, US scene and more

The weekend before last, the thrilling IVGC tournament was taking place in Cannes, France. EventHubs' very own writer MajinTenshinhan was present at the scene, and made sure to grab six different interviews, which we will publish daily during the week.

Today, we publish our third interview, with USA's East Coast superstar EMP|Dieminion. Below, you'll find a quick snippet of the interview.

MajinTenshinhan: Let's get straight to the subject that's on everybody's mind lately. What do you think about the changes to your character, Guile, in the current build of Ultra Street Fighter 4?

EMP|Dieminion: Well, I played him quiite extensively today, here in France. He seems more complete than he's ever been. I think the one change I would've liked is his crouching medium kick to be FADC cancellable. Not saying that I want it special cancellable, just able to be focus cancelled.

Because, as it is now, I feel like it's still very susceptible to Focus Attacks, which is probably his main weakness. Add to that, he doesn't have a complete answer to certain characters' focus attacks. But I think that if it were focus cancellable, it would be a much better tool to have in his arsenal.

Other than that, he's fine. If you don't safejump properly when he's using Ultra 1, you're going to get hit, stuff like that makes him a really good character, so I'm liking the changes a lot so far.

A burst from the past: Daigo Umehara not only competed in Guilty Gear XX at EVO 2003, but won 1st place - check out the rare footage here

MCZ|Daigo Umehara is most widely renowned for his incredible skill / accomplishments in Street Fighter. From SF2 to SF4, it is no secret that Umehara is one of the greatest fighting game legends to ever roam the earth.

Many of our readers (including myself) didn't find out about Daigo's rise to fame until the Street Fighter 4 era. But before he was under the Mad Catz wing, before he wrote his own book, Daigo was also tearing through the competition in games that weren't Capcom related.

Today we stumbled across some rare footage, (courtesy of Beast Note), that features Daigo taking part in the Guilty Gear XX tournament at EVO 2003. Not only did Daigo compete that year, but the Beast actually went on to take home the gold.

To clarify, this may be old news to Guilty Gear and FGC veterans, but coming across a gem like this that we were previously unaware of is something we just have to share with our readers. Hit the jump to check out three videos of Daigo in action, along with the EVO 2003 Guilty Gear XX grand finals set.
