Poison's odd hurtbox lets you do some unique and incredibly damaging combos on her with Ken, Ryu, Sakura, Seth and others

When the patch for Ultra came out and received the five most recent characters in Street Fighter 4, one of the first complaints players had was about some of the new characters' hurtboxes.

Elena was probably the most notable example as her unique design caused many standard combos to whiff half way through. Others like Poison and Hugo had some issues wherein hurtboxes would completely disappear at times. People voiced their frustrations, and in the 1.04 patch, developers tweaked things a bit to make these characters somewhat more like the rest of the cast.

Though hurtbox issues have been traditionally in the newest characters' favor, ks_tali has created a video showing that Poison is actually susceptible to a few otherwise impossible combos. Tali explains one of the combos from the video:

"cl.hp xx sonic boom FADC with Seth normally grants +7 frame advantage. On Poison, the boom always hits extremely meaty, granting about +13 advantage, at least from what I tested."

Nemo vs. Xian first-to-15 set in Ultra Street Fighter 4 - Over an hour of top-player action between Gen and Rolento

BE|Nemo is hardly an unknown player, making a very big name for himself in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but also producing fair results in earlier Street Fighter 4 entries using Chun-Li and Yang. However, once Ultra hit, BE|Nemo took the Street Fighter 4 world by storm with his Rolento, and showed everyone across the world just what this character was capable of.

So what do you get when you take this top-caliber player and match him up against the masterful RZR|Xian, who himself managed to put Gen on the map in a similar way, and even won EVO in 2013 using the character? You get a whole lot of action, that's what.

After the jump, you'll find video clocking in at almost 75 minutes featuring these two top players as they battle it out in a first-to-15 set.

Seth Killian: I think there are a lot of fighting game mechanics that are physically harder than they need to be

RETRO Videogame Magazine 7th issue is packed with tons of interesting fighting game content, including an interview with former Capcom employee, Seth Killian.

Seth worked heavily on Street Fighter 4, and became one of the most popular figures in the fighting game community during his time at Capcom, and he was asked if there are any past, or current trends, in fighters as a whole that he really doesn't like.

"I think there are a lot of fighting-game mechanics that are physically harder than they really need to be," said Killian.

Juri highlight video shows you don't need Dudley or Yun to lay down the insane pressure – red focus into Ultra 1 concepts, dash mix ups, combos, more

Juri hasn't seen a lot of love at the highest level of tournament play in Ultra Street Fighter 4 lately, but that doesn't mean there aren't those pushing the character to her absolute limit.

RnK Clan has released a video highlighting the work of their player Lucius. Titled "Feng Shui Engine Madness", it lives up to its name in every way. Lucius's Juri is deadly even without her Ultra 1, but once she has it, almost every fighter encountered falls to her.

If you've ever thought about playing Juri, this is a player to imitate. The pressure Lucius is able to exert through high-low and dash mix ups along with a healthy serving of frame traps is stunning. Even when extremely down on health, the Juri main appears to make his opponent's advantage melt away in seconds.

To see what a threat Juri can be, check out the highlight video below.

7-hit juggle still gets full animation U2?! Omega Dudley makes his USF4 counterpart look pathetic in this awesome combo video

Just the other day, Rhuel47 showed was Ultra Street Fighter 4 is all about. Today, he returns to make us forget about all of that with this excellent Omega mode combo video featuring everyone's favorite pugilist. (Sorry, Balrog!)

This CMV features setups that focus on two things: scoring the maximum situational damage and pushing the mode's juggle properties as far as they can go.

Both of these themes are very greatly represented in this compilation, as there are combos that manage to tally up 7 juggle hits before landing a full-animation U2, some that deal 600+ damage, and many others.

To see Omega Dudley in action, be sure to watch Rhuel47's latest combo video below.

Sako's Elena can armor cancel, Luffy sends Smug a message and Daigo and Xian engage in a fight for the ages in the final day of Topanga World League

After a grueling weekend of nail biters, come from behind victories and all around top quality Street Fighter play, Topanga World League has concluded.

With eight of the world's finest fighting all weekend long, the dust has finally settled and we have crowned a champion. While there were multitudes of great plays all weekend long, the majority of today's highlights focus on the set between MCZ|Daigo Umehara and RZR|Xian.

HORI|Sako's Ultra

Some players are just plain fun to watch. Whether it was with his Ibuki back in Arcade Edition, his ground breaking Evil Ryu over the past few years, or his Elena now, Sako is one of those players.

It seems as though we're guaranteed some brand new surprise every time we see this man hit the sticks. Today in his set with EG|Momochi, Sako showed us a new Elena trick. We actually had to send DreamKing into training mode to try to recreate this, but apparently it's done by inputting QCF+Focus, then finish the Ultra motion. We had to watch it a few times...

Gootecks swears that the team will most definitely not lose even a single ranked match in today's episode...

Check out these highlights to get a glimpse of how the day went.

MD|Luffy's Lightning Perfect

Normally when Evil Ryu meets Rose on the battlefield, he's the aggressor. Luffy's sudden rush down caught us all off guard as he perfects Qanba|Xiao Hai in just under 15 seconds without having a single move blocked or contested.

Tokido goes in on Snake Eyez, stops Bonchan in his tracks, perfects Xian and Ultras everybody in this 'Ode to Skill' highlight video

Hajine "MCZ|Tokido" Taniguchi's list of notable victims and accomplishments has grown quite expansive over the years. Known for playing a demonic character at a hellish pace, and always with his trademark sinister stare, Tokido has rightfully earned himself the nickname "Murderface."

Intelligent decision making synthesized with all out aggression makes the Japanese "fighting god" incredibly entertaining to watch. One of the Tokido's most remarkable traits is his consistency. You can look almost anywhere in his career and find awe-inspiring, high level Street Fighter play.

From Topanga leagues, high-profile invitationals and Capcom Pro Tour events, we have a compilation of some of the Murderface's strongest moments in recent months. Showing off his abilities to open up even the soundest of defenses, Tokido takes out a vast array of world class competitors like Snake Eyez, Bonchan, RZR|Xian, RZR|Fuudo and more.
