Capcom has released images of all of the Summer Vacation DLC costumes they'll be putting out into the wild.

These will come in packs of 5 again, mostly, but there will also be an option to buy all 44 as well.

Juri can hit Ultra 2 midscreen without using meter! Alioune shows off some new ways to combo into her U2 using Fuhajin Raise in Ultra Street Fighter 4

BCN|Alioune has recently uploaded a new video showcasing how to hit Juri's Ultra 2 midscreen. Even more stunning, however, is that she doesn't require any meter for the combo, instead using her Fuhajin Raise to combo into the ultra.

While it's been known using Juri's Fuhajin Raise can lead to her U2 in the corner, this is the first time the move has been shown to combo into an ultra midscreen. BCN|Alioune states this is due to the delaying of the st. MK.

Check below to watch this new U2 combo land on a variety of the cast.

Scientifically-accurate Street Fighter: Ryu and Ken's Hadouken fireballs would have to travel faster than 93mph in real life

In Street Fighter, fireballs are said to be a physical manifestation of a fighter's "Ki" or inner energy, focused intensely onto their palms and then projected forward with great force.

And depending on if you activate the move with the light, medium or heavy punch (or kick) button, the speed at which the fireball can travel may differ. At the slowest settings, some fireballs may even be travelling at the speed of the average pedestrian.

But that's not possible in real life, according to science -- not that we really needed to hear it from them.

According to a group of students from the University of Leicester's Department of Physics and Astronomy who looked into the possibility of recreating the fireball phenomenon in real life, the Hadouken would have to be travelling at a minimum of 93mph for the ball of Ki to ignite into flames and be visible.

How did they arrive at that conclusion?

Daigo vs. Hong Kong 20-man kumite stream archive ft. Dakou, Humanbomb, GameOuttt and more

Original story: MCZ|Daigo is currently in Hong Kong to attend a special Capcom Pro Tour event that's part of the Ani-Com & Games 2014 convention over there.

Gootecks lands Rose's Super from full-screen distance - Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Rose ft. Maximilian Ep. 24

The latest episode of Ultra Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross ft. Maximilian is out now on the Cross Counter TV YouTube channel.

In this episode: Gootecks tries to go easy on a complete newbie but fails in an epic way at the end, Maximilian makes a Zangief joke so ridiculous that it made Gootecks accidentally activate Yun's Genei-Jin, and Mike Ross gets into some serious E. Honda vs. Ryu matches with a rival.

Mike Ross also recounts an incident at CEO that he thinks has changed the opinion on Hugo in the minds of Japanese players.

Which fighting game player is the most popular on YouTube and Twitter? 34 of the biggest names in fighting games ranked

Who are the most popular fighting game players trending on YouTube and Twitter in the world? Japanese fighting game fan Tiger Knee Ojisan wanted to know the answer to that question, to the point that he decided to create a rather arbitrary method to judge the overall popularity of 34 notable names in the FGC -- and made a video to answer it.

His methodology for determining a player's popularity is quite simple: search on YouTube for the player's name, take the average view count of the top 5 videos listed for that player, and add it to the 10 times the number of followers he has on Twitter to drive that player's "PP" -- popularity points, we suppose.

Why 10x the number of Twitter followers? Beats me.

But surprisingly, in spite of the seemingly random formula, the list he has assembled seems to be pretty legit. In fact, the top two contenders on his list were even neck-and-neck in terms of the amount of PP they've amassed.

Check out the video below, and see if you agree with the list -- but do keep in mind that this is only one person's opinion of how a player's popularity should be tabulated.

PR Balrog counters Gamerbee's Jaguar Kick with a reaction Ultra - first-to-5 with their mains in Ultra Street Fighter 4 after EVO

After EVO 2014, AVM|Gamerbee went on vacation in the US for a bit, and visited EG|PR Balrog at his house to lay the smackdown to play a couple of long sets, just for old times' sake.

That day the two Ultra Street Fighter 4 pro gamers sat down to play a number of sets using different characters, beginning with a no-holds barred first set where they both used their mains.

This may be the first time ever PR Balrog and Gamerbee have faced one another offline in Ultra Street Fighter 4; the previous time they played the Boxer vs. Adon match-up was back in March, and that had been in a different version of the game.

Nuki was disgusted by 15-year-old Daigo's lame Guile in SF2 at first: New manga series depicts The Beast's teenage years, appearances by Xian, Tokido

When Nuki first met MCZ|Daigo, the latter had been a new kid on the block in the arcade that Nuki frequented.

The year was 1996. Although both Nuki and Daigo were both 15 at the time, Nuki had already been a familiar face in his local arcade scene. He was known not only for his amazing ability to rack up humongous win streaks, but also for being a nice guy in general.

Despite his friendly disposition, however, when Nuki first saw Daigo in the arcades, he didn't even bother walking up to talk to him. He was too disgusted by the lame way that Daigo had been playing Guile in SF2 to want to, the first chapter of "Umehara Fighting Gamers", a new manga series based on The Beast's teenage years, reveals.

Although it's entirely in Japanese, you can read Umehara Fighting Gamers for free in a "Shuukan Georgia" smartphone app that's available on the iTunes and Google Play app stores.

The first two chapters, which came out today, not only features Daigo and Nuki in their teenage years; MCZ|Tokido and RZR|Xian also made cameo appearances in a brief introduction of the FGC to readers.

Check out their mugs in the images below, as well as a concise summary of what the first two chapters covered after the jump.

5 Axe Kicks and 900 stun in a single combo; RyuApprentice's latest CMV focuses on Evil Ryu's 'stun gun' in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Prepare to get dizzied! RyuApprentice has published a new Evil Ryu CMV, this time focusing on the various ways you could pull out the stun-gun that Capcom gave the character, when you've successfully landed a heavy jump-in attack.

It may not be as abusable as the gun that Capcom gave T. Hawk, but it's still a fairly fearsome-looking weapon, if you can manage to pull it off in a real match against an unsuspecting opponent. Stay vigilant, online warriors! The streets in USF4 are no longer safe!

But that's a big 'if', of course -- many of the links you see in these combos are 1F links.

Still, it doesn't make any of these combos less entertaining to watch, especially since RyuApprentice managed to string together five Axe Kicks in a single combo -- and that's before Evil Ryu's opponent gets dizzied.

Hugo has a different kind of pass-through glitch: Light punches completely whiff on crouching Poison after body splash in Ultra Street Fighter 4

It seems that Poison's wonky hurtbox strikes again. We were recently sent a video in which Hugo's crouching light punch passes through Poison after a Body Splash in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

When Hugo hits a cross up Body Splash on a crouching Poison, both his crouching and standing light punches will actually go right through her, causing the attack to completely whiff.

This isn't the first time we've seen strange properties come as a result of this strange hurtbox, as earlier this week we reported on an odd bug that allows Poison to completely avoid low attacks when she transitions from a crouching state to a standing position.

Capcom's own Peter "Combofiend" Rosas informed EventHubs that the is company is aware of the aforementioned bug and is currently working on a fix, so hopefully our story here will get the word out to them about this new glitch discovery.

Below you can check out Hugo's light punch pass-through glitch.

Uryo: 'Decapre can end a round almost instantly with a few good reads' - an analysis of the Russian assassin's options when her prey is cornered

According to Japanese C. Viper and Sakura player Uryo in an entry published today on his blog, the most fun part about playing Decapre is when you get to abuse her "dagger trap" after zoning your opponent all the way into the corner.

Although Decapre's LP Rapid Dagger is -3 on block, due to the decent amount of pushback from the move, if you perform the move from the right range, not a lot of characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4 have viable punishes for it.

You can thus abuse the move repeatedly on these characters in the corner, in a manner similar to Ryu's fireball trap, and the only way out for them is if they can make the right read to jump out.

But that's easier said than done. Especially not once you've managed to apply these tips on Decapre's dagger trap game from one of Japan's foremost character specialists.

Below you'll find our translation of Uryo's detailed run through on what to do after a cr.MK -> LP Rapid Dagger when Decapre's opponent is in the corner.
