Crouching Elena, hidden hurtboxes? Dan's jump HP, MK, HK and LK Dankukyaku completely whiff on Elena when crouched in Ultra Street Fighter 4

One of Elena's character traits is that her hurtboxes are a little on the odd side of things, making it fairly difficult for certain moves or combos to connect.

This was something that's been a part of her ever since Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike, in which her hurtboxes would actually move as Elena shifts her legs back and forth while in her neutral standing animation.

In Ultra Street Fighter 4, this character trait manifests itself as smaller hurtboxes when Elena is in the courching state. This can be fairly annoying, as it means that certain bread and butter combos would not work on the African breakdancer. But otherwise, the vs. Elena match-up should not be too much of a problem for your character to deal with.

Unless, of course, your character of choice is Dan, as the video below from MyAwesomeAfro demonstrates.

Daigo unleashes Evil Ryu's tricky 'okizeme' setups on Momochi - Topanga Banzuke matches also ft. Nemo, Darui, Mago, Fuudo and Kazunoko

On this week's episode of Topanga TV, MCZ|Tokido, MCZ|Mago and EG|Momochi run through some of the highlights from the Tokyo Topanga Banzuke event from two weekends ago, before diving into an online tournament session with stream viewers who had 3,500PP or more.

Of particular note within the matches shown today was the one played between MCZ|Daigo and EG|Momochi, in which The Beast shows off a bunch of Evil Ryu's okizeme (wake-up offense) options that catches Momochi by surprise.

Other notable players featured in these Topanga Banzuke matches include Darui (Dhalsim), BE|Nemo (Rolento), MCZ|Mago (Fei Long), RZR|Fuudo (Fei Long), and Kazunoko (Yun).

Check out the stream archive embedded below, along with time codes for the matches.

Doctor Claw's insane cross under into Super reset, Hugo's jumping attacks do a number on XBL's #1 Dhalsim: USF4 replays ft. Tokido, Poongko, and more

YogaFlame24 has just uploaded some truly excellent Ultra Street Fighter 4 matches on to his YouTube channel.

In today's assortment we have such players as MCZ|Tokido, Poongko, V-Ryu Sensei, KingBlackToof, Doctor Claw, Kiryu Tsukimiya, and more.

During Doctor Claw's match against FNEXRobG's Seth, the very skilled Vega player hits a remarkable reset against his opponent. Using a light kick after landing the Cosmic Heel launcher, Doctor Claw goes straight into a Rolling Crystal Flash. Be sure to watch the video to see what happens next.

Additionally, a Hugo player by the name of tarouyoshimune shows just how effective the giant grappler's jumping attacks can be in one of his worst match-ups: Dhalsim. This isn't just any old Dhalsim, however; this is the #1 ranked Dhalsim on Xbox Live.

8-bit roundup: Poison's USF4 theme would fit perfectly in a Mega Man game; Dee Jay, T. Hawk, Cammy, and Fei Long stages hit you right in the nostalgia

Earlier today, 8-bit theme extraordinaire Mr. BulbaMike uploaded a brand new song conversion that features Poison's Ultra Street Fighter 4 track.

After hearing this new composition, (and having personally beaten Mega Man 1 - 6), I can say that this particular track sounds like it would fit right in as one of the robot villain stage themes.

Additionally, we have added in some of Mike's past works that include 8-bit renditions of the stage themes for T. Hawk, Cammy, Fei Long, and Dee Jay. Not only will these songs take you right back to playing Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers on your Super Nintendo, but the style of these tracks really add a retro feel to them.

As an added cherry on top, you will also find an 8-bit version of Decapre's Ultra Street Fighter 4 theme. Check them all out below, and feel free to let us know which you enjoyed most.

When prompted with the question that is on many fighting gamers' minds right now -- are we getting a Street Fighter game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4? -- Ono simply replied, "some time or other," confirming that there are at least plans for an upcoming SF game.

In a completely separate tweet, Ono also stated that there are no plans for any next-gen Street Fighter titles on the Wii U.
