Exclusive interview! Alex Valle shares his incredibly valuable two cents on USF4's versions of Hugo and Ryu

When one discusses the founding fathers of America's Fighting Game Community there are a few names that are undoubtedly sure to come up. Amongst those names you'll almost always find Mr. Alex Valle.

Valle has paved the way and helped grow the FGC to what it is today. He is known for his contributions to both in-game strategy as well as to developing and growing the community.

He is a go-to source for sage advice for any and all up and comers. He was kind enough to give us some one on one time and discuss a few topics.

Devilish Daigo: Umehara lands Raging Demons in devastating fashion on Xian and Gackt - Highlights from Capcom Pro Tour Asia

Evil Ryu is known as a character with massive firepower when he's stocked with meter, but MCZ|Daigo Umehara has been making him look even deadlier with some very crafty uses of the fighter's kara Raging Demon in competitive matches.

Facing Razer's Gackt and Xian last night in the Capcom Pro Tour Asia event, Umehara landed multiple Raging Demons on his unsuspecting opponents.

Gackt and Xian are two phenomenal Ultra Street Fighter 4 players, and the fact Daigo was able to set them up multiple times for kara demons is quite impressive.

We've put together a set of highlights Umehara had against both players in animated gif form.

Exclusive interview! Low Ti3r God discusses his grudge match with Viscant outside Super Arcade

Wednesday Night Fights was... intense this week to say the least.

The tournament itself didn't get started until 11pm PST because the night kicked off with the most heated grudge match to date. Featuring Evo 2011 Marvel vs Capcom 3 champion BT|Viscant and Low Ti3r God in a first to ten set in Ultra Street FIghter 4.

The grudge started a few weeks back when LTG, known for his 'uncensored and in your face' attitude, insulted Viscant via social media. Viscant responded with a money match challenge for $200.

The match itself was hype enough but the exchanges before and afterwards were what really set the night on fire. Both players seemed to seethe pure, unadulterated hatred for one another.

I was able to catch up with Low Ti3r God after the match to get his thoughts on the whole situation. The crowd is a bit noisy but that's the Super Arcade ambiance for you. Also, the interview is just a bit NSFW.

Ryu's nifty new parry and Dhalsim's invincible chop attack: An intro to USF4 Omega mode changes ft. Ken, E. Honda, Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief, and Guile

ComboFiend over on Capcom Unity has shared a glimpse at some of the changes set to appear in Ultra Street Fighter 4's Omega Mode.

Tonight we learn about some of the alterations being made to the original 8 world warriors. There are a number of wacky tweaks set to debut when Omega Mode drops, and this writer would be lying if he said he wasn't excited to test them all out.

Below are a couple of changes explained by ComboFiend himself.

Ryu:

Hanagashi: Forward + HP + HK to activate damage-nullifying armor.

Some of you will get it just by looking at the screenshot, but this is pretty close to the parry system from SFIII.

While the move is active and after absorbing an attack, Ryu can use EX meter to deliver a follow-up strike. This gives him another form of defense in addition to the Focus Attack and is sure to completely change up his footsie approach!

Desk is back with a new combo video showcasing El Fuerte landing 26 extremely difficult hits, includes trailer of new CMV for USF4

Desk, the mastermind behind some of the most difficult to perform combos in Street Fighter 4, has put his hands to the test with El Fuerte. This time, however, he has also included up to the second notation of every single attack and motion his hands make. This coincides with him recording his stick, so you are welcome to imitate everything he does if you can.

Check out the video below to see Desk work his magic.

Yoga Tauntastrophe! Dhalsim's taunt works as a novel mixup tool in Ultra Street Fighter 4

It was always amazing in Third Strike how every taunt had some minor purpose. Sure, some were obviously more effective than others, but it felt oddly satisfying to have that extra, unique move. With Ultra Street Fighter 4, we've seen the return of a select few taunts being useful. For example, Dudley's rose is back as a corner pressure tool to help with mixups on knockdown. Dan's taunt builds meter and changes his air trajectory.

But in a surprising twist, Dhalsim can use his taunt as a mixup tool in Ultra Street Fighter 4. In the video, by activating his taunt in close range to Blanka, Dhalsim stretches into the air and leans over his opponent only to teleport to the other side before attacking. While it's certainly shocking to see, the usefulness of the trick will will likely decrease as more people see it done.

The question to its longevity is if it can be ambiguous with a slight change in Dhalsim's positioning making it difficult to tell which side he'll land on. Nonetheless, this could be the perfect way to clinch a close match with someone unfamiliar with the trick.

Check out the short video below to see it in action.
