Daigo's pride kept him from counterpicking FChamp at EVO; Kazunoko, Bonchan, and Fuudo feel Fuerte is top 10 - AirBehr Chat: season 2, ep. 2

CCG|Air and Behrudy are back with the second episode of AirBehr Chat season 2.

Joined once again by Cross Counter's Gootecks, the three content creators discuss a number of different topics and share some very interesting stories.

At EVO 2014, MCZ|Daigo suffered a loss to Filipino Champ's Dhalsim. Later in the year, The Beast underwent a similar loss to RZR|Xian's 'Sim at Capcom Cup. Many have wondered why Daigo didn't simply counterpick during these matches, and according to Kazunoko and FGC|Pepeday, the decision to stick to his guns lies solely in pride.

Air recalls a moment in time where he talked to the aforementioned Japanese players about this very subject, and they both explained that refraining from counterpicking is part of their culture. In Japan, most feel that pride is more important than victory.

Luffy tells us who the top 5 strongest characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4 are in this online interview with King Jae

Since his EVO victory last year, MD|Luffy continues to be a dominant force in the USF4 scene. He most recently cleaned house at Kakutop League, which included the likes of top players like DIG|Ryan Hart and GL|Valmaster.

King Jae was able to connect with Luffy in an internet voice interview to ask him who he thinks the current top 5 strongest characters in the cast are.

Luffy also gives a bit of reasoning for each of his picks, which is infinitely better than a mere list of names.

Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 occasionally crashes during local play - Beware of the 1.04 bug that's begun popping up in tournaments

There's been a bug sweeping the world of Ultra Street Fighter 4 fans ever since the 1.04 patch was released, and while it won't leave any lasting effects to your game or console, it's most certainly annoying.

What happens is, suddenly during a match, the game will slow down to slow-motion and start a very loud grinding sound. This does not go away unless you exit to the dashboard and restart the game entirely - going to the main menu and back into a new match will not make the problem go away.

This is an issue that's come to light only after version 1.04 of the game was released, and has begun to pop up at a few tournaments, among others, Kakutop League this last weekend. Personally, I also ran into it at a local tournament called King of Sweden during one of IND|Ixion's matches.

This phenomenon has been captured on video, and you can find it occuring during a match between UM|ImStillDaDaddy and GxC|Damascus at the monthly event HYPEdown after the jump.

The Excellent Adventures of ... Tokido and Mago? Watch the return of Momochi's Cody as he joins the MCZ warriors to conduct some online antics

If you thought that Gootecks and Mike Ross were the only ones to try and capitalize on the joys and horrors of online Street Fighter 4, think again - Japan's top players MCZ|Tokido and MCZ|Mago have the same thing going every week at the TopangaTV Twitch cannel.

Lately, EG|Momochi has also been partaking in the fun, and he brought out his long dormant Cody to show some tricks. Follow along as the Japanese master players endure both glorious victory and shameful defeat after the jump.

Don't use Focus Attacks against this Guy - Watch superb confirms from counter hits that can net 400 damage for Guy in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Guy was capable of dishing out some extra pain by using run-stop if he got a counter hit on the 2nd hit of his target combo (a fact I actually wasn't aware of until I saw this video), but before Ultra Street Fighter 4, it was a one-frame link. In the current version, this is not only easier, but has also opened up some new capabilities for our sneaker-sponsored ninja master.

In the video, you'll see several good uses of this buff, but also some potential problems you might run into if you always try to go for full damage. Check it out below.

Fighting game music kazoo covers? The Super Smash Bros. Melee theme like you've never heard it before - Also SSB Wii U main theme and Guile's theme

We've all heard the Super Smash Bros. Melee theme many times, probably more than we can even count. But this version might not be something you're accustomed to.

YouTube personality TsukoG put his kazoo to the test, and the results are ... Surprisingly good.

Hit the jump to hear this masterpiece performed in a most unexpected way.

From getting INCREDIBLY LUCKY to making INCREDIBLE READS; Mike Ross shows off his Honda in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Mike Ross' Honda is one of a kind. He's incredibly offensive with a character that's traditionally supposed to sit and do nothing.

His uncanny ability to read his opponents wows us again and again, and it always seems that he's one step ahead of both his opponent, and the crowd watching him.

Here we have a compilation of some of Mike's matches in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

From absolute domination to crazy comebacks, these are sure to leave you with a smirk of disbelief on your face... especially the game against FRQ|Filipinoman.

Daigo (Sagat, Guile, Evil Ryu) vs. Bonchan (Evil Ryu, Ryu, Sagat) Ultra Street Fighter 4 exhibition matches from Niconico Shotenkaigi live stream

The Niconico Shotenkaigi is a Japanese nationwide tour of events initiated to highlight the significance of book stores within the context of Japan's popular culture today.

Comprising a total of 10 separate events held at various book stores all across Japan on different dates, these live-streamed events feature Let's Play broadcasts, live performances, book signings and other activities -- such as an MCZ|Daigo vs. 100-man Kumite and a Daigo vs. Bonchan exhibition match held earlier today at the WonderGoo Moriya store in Ibaraki prefecture.

During the Daigo vs. Bonchan exhibition match segment, the two renowned USF4 players went up against one another in a total of three matches, picking characters that the event attendees and stream viewers at home wanted to see.

In the first match, Daigo plays Sagat against Bonchan's Evil Ryu. This was followed up with a Daigo (Guile) vs. Bonchan (Ryu) match, mostly because people wanted to see Daigo play Guile -- Bonchan just picked a character he thought would make this a good match.

And lastly, the two players went back to their respective mains for the final match, Daigo (Evil Ryu) vs. Bonchan (Sagat).

White Daigo (Dan) takes on the Cross Counter duo in The Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross Ep. 50: Eat Your Lettuce

This latest episode of Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross kicks off with the Cross Counter duo both taking a turn each to fight The White Daigo on Xbox Live.

"I wonder how you do the... heart thing," a bemused Gootecks ponders as he picks Omega Poison from the character selection screen.

"It's not quarter-circle back and kick. It's not quarter-circle back and punch. Maybe it's fireball and kick," Gootecks continues as he shoots Mike Ross -- who's no doubt taking out his smartphone to look up the Omega Mode move list pages on EventHubs -- a look.

"Aw, there it is. There it is, Mike. Look at this, look at it," Gootecks goes as he performs Omega Poison's Honey Trap special move, which he now knows the command for. Mystery solved, all thanks to the EventHubs Omega Poison move list page.

And then the Cross Counter duo lived happily ever after... Or do they?

Find out by watching Ep. 50 of The Excellent [Omega] Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross: Eat Your Lettuce, embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
