Desk gets spooky with 60 FPS combos in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Combo video maker extraordinaire, Desk, is back with some spooky combos. This is a short, but sweet video featuring Makoto and C. Viper.

Uploaded at 60 FPS, you get to see more of the animation than ever before as Desk connects some devilish setups.

The clip is available after the break.

Eye of the Tiger and Guile's theme combine in this metal mashup to become one of the most American songs ever made

Guitarist and songwriter Charlie Parra del Riego has combined Guile's iconic Street Fighter 2 theme with "Eye of the Tiger", a song likely known for its attachment to a plethora of training montages.

Fittingly, the combination has been done in the style of metal and on electric guitar. The song is actually extremely well played, seamlessly flowing between the two pieces and concluding with a fantastic guitar solo.

While it may not be the most American song ever made (that title belongs to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" by Rick Derringer), it should certainly provide an excellent accompaniment for any last minute work you have to do before enjoying your Halloween.

Listen to the song below to earn your stars and stripes.

Do you hunger for a rewarding experience in Ultra Street Fighter 4? This Dee Jay combo video will get you started on the path to low tier happiness

Very few Dee Jay mains could forget when Capcom's Combofiend explained that while winning with the character might be more difficult than with others in Ultra Street Fighter 4, it'll also be that much more rewarding.

Those satisfaction seekers who took the character online might find themselves getting beaten down instead of being overwhelmed with the happiness expected from a low tier character. Well, worry no more.

Admittedly, some of these combos would be fairly impractical to actually perform in a live match; however, they do showcase what the character can actually be capable of in the right hands.

Watch the video below to see if you're one step closer to the reward Dee Jay offers.

Scorpion vs. Ryu in a fiery hell fight to the death......... why are you not watching it already?

How many hypothetical, fantasy match ups between your favorite video game characters have you envisioned over the years?

As evidenced by the multiple cross-over games we've seen such as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, Street Fighter X Tekken and, of course, Marvel vs Capcom, it's not at all uncommon to wonder how characters from one realm would do against another.

Over at Screw Attack, Wiz and Boomstick have been hard at work analyzing the weapons, armor and skills of Ryu and Scorpion for their latest Death Battle video. These videos are always incredibly entertaining and well done.

Seth's delayed fireball and Akuma's shiny new teleport: Part 2 of the USF4 Omega mode changes feat. Balrog, Vega, M.Bison, Gouken and Sagat

Time to see what the boss characters have to offer in the Omega Mode update for USF4!

There have been many times wherein we've played against these characters in their "Shin" form as mini/final bosses in arcade mode. We watched helplessly as they performed ridiculously awesome moves that were never available to us.

Omega mode is our chance to try out some over powered boss moves! Haunts walks us through some of the changes to bosses new and old.

Seth:

EX Sonic Boom stays still on the screen for a bit before flying towards the opponent. I guess you could call it a set-up move.

'Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage: fLoE or Floke' - Jayce the Ace and CJ Truth in Pro Tour's latest spotlights

Capcom continues to release their Pro Tour player spotlights in which they sit down with some of the most notable competitors in the community and talk shop.

The most recent videos were uploaded just yesterday, and feature fLoE, YBK|Jayce the Ace, and CJ Truth.

For those who are unfamiliar, fLoE is somewhat known for "choking" in a tournament setting. It has happened so many times, that whenever another occurs, many refer to it as a "Floke." In this interview, fLoE offers a bit of advice for those looking to cheer him on at the next event.

"Don't bet on me, because you never know who's going up to that stage," fLoE explained. "Sometimes you'll see moments of brilliance, moments of greatness, and then you'll see the most terrible play you've ever seen in your life."

CJ Truth shares that his greatest achievement is not only beating EG|Justin Wong, but hitting him with a Perfect, and Jayce mentions that he has only been playing competitively for 4 and a half years, yet still managed to defeat MCZ|Tokido at SCR.

Check out Capcom's latest player spotlights below.

Just how strong of a seller is Street Fighter for Capcom? Latest numbers for the series as a whole and each game for Street Fighter 4, MvC3, and more

Update: A mistake in the article that implied the total of Marvel vs Capcom 3 sales totaled 7 million has been corrected. The Marvel vs Capcom series as a whole equals this amount. Secondly, while Street Fighter Alpha 3 is the lowest selling game listed, there are Capcom titles not represented due to their selling below 1 million.

Capcom has updated the sales of both their individual game sales and series sales for almost the entirety of their catalog. Sales, of course, are an integral part of getting funding for future titles, so where a franchise stands on this list shine shines some light on hopes for sequels and re-releases.

It should come as no surprise that Resident Evil takes the highest honor at a total of 62 million units sold worldwide. Specifically, Resident Evil 5 holds the number one spot for individual game sales at 6.7 million units. The highest selling Street Fighter title, Street Fighter II, closely follows in second at 6.3 million.

But how does Street Fighter hold up in sales overall? What is the worst selling Street Fighter title listed? And where's Marvel? Read below to find out.

LeviStrauss 'Timer Scams' Daigo; NISHIKIN uses both U2 and Red Focus twice, mounts big comeback: USF4 replays feat. Pepeday, Inco, and more

We end off our news day with some spectacular Ultra Street Fighter 4 bouts.

Players participating in this assortment of matches include MCZ|Daigo, NISHIKIN, LeviStrauss, FGC|Pepeday, Inco, ProudStrawberry, and more.

In the match between Daigo (Evil Ryu) and LeviStrauss (Ken), the latter manages to brave a series of pressure strings from The Beast, winding down the clock and taking the round with a 'Timer Scam' Ultra 2. NISHIKIN (Blanka) also demonstrates some impressive play by landing two Red Focus combos on Kyunzo (Hugo), and also hits U2 twice in one match.

You can check out the animated GIFs below to see NISHIKIN style with Red Focus and mount a big comeback. If you want to avoid match spoilers, it is recommended that you skip the GIFs.

Ixion's tier ranking for Dan in Ultra Street Fighter 4, feels Rufus is his easiest match-up

Another Ultra Street Fighter 4 character tier ranking was recently sent our way, and this time Ixion -- Europe's, and arguably the world's best Dan player -- brings us his match-up list for the Saikyo master.

Unlike some of the previous tier rankings we've featured here on the site in recent times, Ixion's arranges the roster from most difficult to easiest match-ups. It's no surprise that Evil Ryu sits atop the list as the most difficult opponent for Dan, but what's interesting is that Rufus is shown as Dan's easiest opponent to defeat.

Check out Ixion's tier ranking for Dan below, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Akuma hits 7 standing heavy kicks in one combo! Desk shows the power of meaty attacks and frame delay links in USF4

Desk is back with yet another Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video today.

The combo extraordinaire resurrects Akuma's st. LP - meaty st. HK loop from Vanilla SF4, and puts it to amazing use against E. Honda in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Using "Frame Delay Links" -- a technique that requires a player wait x amount of frames before inputting another button -- Desk has managed to land 7 of Akuma's standing heavy kicks in one combo.

Check it out below.

Ryu's ambiguous corner cross-under mix-up, Akuma whiffed Super setup that gives a guaranteed UC2, Tiger Shot loops - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

CMV maker Luparez has been spending quite a bit of time training in the lab in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and he's finally ready to share his lab findings with the rest of us -- it's been two months since his last video!

In this multi-character CMV, Luparez not only performs some of the most fanciful combos possible in the game, but also demonstrates some of the mix-up and reset opportunities possible with many of the characters featured.

There's a lot to see here. My personal favorite: cancelling Akuma's fireball with his Raging Demon super, in order to force his opponent to jump for a guaranteed Ultra Combo 2.

All that and more in Luparez's "Experiments in the Lab 9" CMV below.
