Fantastic Dudley bust fits perfectly into the mansion of almost any gentleman

Are you a Street Fighter fan living in a posh mansion? Are you missing that perfect, classy piece on your grand piano that says, "Yes, why I do fight like a gentleman"? Well, look no further for the solution of your first world problems. RGM501, an artist over at DeviantArt, has recently released pictures of what his limited edition Dudley bust looks like painted.

While the design of the 1/4 scale bust is absolutely fitting for the character, seeing the boxer fully painted makes him look as if he just stepped out of Street Fighter III (with only his face and torso intact, mind you). Sadly, if you were looking to buy one of these creations from RGM to paint for yourself, you'll have to get in line. They are sold out.

But that doesn't mean you can't admire the craftsmanship in the photo below.

Who is the best ranked character across all Street Fighter games? Find out which champions reign supreme in USF4, SF3 3S, SSFT2/HDR

Last month we determined which characters ranked as the worst in each of the main Street Fighter games: Ultra Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Not only that, but we also took a look at who was the absolute worst character throughout each of the four titles. Tonight, however, we're revealing who is the best of the best.

Using the tiers section right here on EventHubs, we determined not only who the best character in each Street Fighter game is, but also figured out which character is the absolute best spanning across the aforementioned Street Fighter titles by comparing their tier score average.

In order to calculate this average score we simply took the raw tier score for each character and divided that by the number of characters on their respective game's roster.

Below you will find a list of the four best characters, with both raw tier score / average tier score, and a few statistics showing how much these characters are used.

Ono: Capcom fighting games revival project was developed internally by old-timers; SSF2T initially picked instead of Hyper SF2

After finding out about Capcom's announcement of a fighting games revival project that would see four classic fighters redistributed in Japanese arcades via the NESiCAxLIVE platform, some EventHubs readers have been wondering why the Osaka-based games maker decided to go with Hyper Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3 instead of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and SFA3 Double Upper as two of their picks.

As it turns out, our readers weren't the only folks wondering about that.

After Capcom made the announcement at the Tokyo qualifier for the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament yesterday, Famitsu caught up with Capcom's Head of Consumer Games Development Division 2 Yoshinori Ono to find out more about the project -- and asked about their criterion for games selection.

Capcom fighting games revival project announced, widescreen ports of Street Fighter Alpha 3 and 3 other games coming to NESiCAxLive

Earlier today at the conclusion of the Tokyo qualifier for Capcom and Taito's Ultra Street Fighter 4 "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Japan national tournament, Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano made an announcement for a "Capcom Fighting Games Revival Project", that will see four classic Capcom CPS2 fighters receive widescreen 16:9 ports for Taito's NESiCAxLive arcade platform.

The four titles are Hyper Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Vampire Savior. As the four games all originally appeared in the arcades in standard definition 4:3 format, these 16:9 ports will feature command lists for characters on the sides of the screen.

On top of the new widescreen format, all four titles will support player name display and allow arcade-goers to grind for player points (PP). Players' win-loss history for all four titles will also be available through the NESiCAxLive mobile portal.

Street Fighter 3 Third Strike holds strong in people's hearts as being one of the most eccentric entries to the fighter. Along with the game's unique parry mechanic and cast, the third entry's music possessed ambitious steps into jazz and hip-hop.

Essenthy Onigami has decided to see how much further he can take the original tracks. And the results are impressive. What's perhaps most striking is how much these renditions honor the original pieces. Instead of trying to overhaul as ambitiously as Online Edition's soundtrack did, Essenthy has chosen to make his versions clean and subtle.
