Seth's long-range jumping HP, "the Yoga Sniper", removed in arcade build of Ultra Street Fighter 4

Early change logs of Ultra Street Fighter 4 reported that Seth's jumping forward/back heavy punch, the long-range, Dhalsim-like attack, had returned from previous iterations of SF4. Footage of this attack being back in action can be seen during the USF4 Capcom Cup exhibition match between Infiltration and RG|Filipino Champ.

The most recent Ultra Street Fighter 4 change list did not mention anything about Seth's jumping heavy attack being reverted, but in some recent footage from the Japanese arcade version of the game, it looks as though this move has once again been restored to its SSF4 AE v2012 form.

In the following clip, you can see that the Seth player attempts to zone his opponent out with the long-ranged attack, but after a couple of jump backs, only the short-ranged counterpart comes out. Seth's "Yoga Sniper" was an attack that many Seth players were happy to see return in Ultra Street Fighter 4; whether or not this change is here to stay is still yet to be seen.

Check out the clip after the jump, and let us know what you think.

Incredibly creative fireball reflect setups, awesome juggles, and tons of super into ultra: You won't want to miss this SSF4 AE v2012 Rose CMV

Cjbqulix has sent us a brand spankin' new Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 combo video (CMV for short) featuring Rose.

There are some great grounded combos here, (including one that utilizes Rose's super and ultra 1 in one combo), but the star of the show is all of the fireball reflect setups. Cjbqulix came up with very creative uses for this move, and although Rose isn't really considered a "combo-heavy" character, this video turns that idea right on its head.

The science of Hadouken: Man who seemingly channeled energy to ignite paper with bare hands inspired Street Fighter Assassin's Fist team

Whether or not you believe in ki or chi, you might find it interesting to know that the creators of Street Fighter Assassin's Fist drew inspiration to tell the story behind one the franchise's most iconic moves from a 1970's documentary called Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey.

A man believed to be named John Chang at one point seemingly ignited a piece of paper with his bare hands, and said he was able to do this by channeling inner energy, often referred to as chi or ki in Chinese or Japanese culture, respectively.

The Assassin's Fist's creators show footage of this happening from the documentary and talk about how this segment and other legends of channeling energy inspired them to tell the tale of how Ryu, Ken and others could harness and release this power in their series.

They also offer more of a look at the series they're working on, showing short segments of action featuring the main cast members.

A comeback on Ricky Ortiz, crazy mixups, and more perfects than Vega should ever be able to get: Check out Zeus' Vega in SSF4 AE v2012

DeBeast has sent us one of his most recent Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 highlight reels.

In this video we get to see numerous clips of him tearing through opponents at various major events. Although Vega's play-style is heavily footsie based, Zeus is able to smother his opponents, granting him sick comebacks, multiple stuns, and more perfects than Vega should ever be able to get, (given his character archetype).

K-Brad: Hate in EventHubs comments didn't compare with all of the love I saw after signing with EG - Director says he's hungry and humble

Jason24cf caught up with Kenneth "EG|K-Brad" Bradley at PAX East 2014 and asked him about the hate he received in the EventHubs comments area after he signed with Evil Geniuses, particularly if he was offended by what some of the people said.

"No, it didn't offend me at all," said Bradley. "I looked at [the comments] after my Twitter and Facebook blew up. I had a whole bunch of support [there]," he noted.

Bradley added that the hate wasn't even half of the amount of love that he saw from people congratulating him on his signing with Evil Geniuses.

Later in the interview, K-Brad said he felt that a lot of hate comes from people being jealous of what you're accomplishing.

"When I see someone doing really well for themselves, I look at it like 'Oh man, good job to that person, I really want to get up there one day', not 'Oh my god, someone else deserves it'," Bradley said.

Mike Ross' face on the line: LeftHandedMonkey issues challenge to Cross Counter host, FT10 set for tomorrow

Tomorrow night, a battle for Mike Ross' face will be going down.

The story goes that TheLeftHandedMonkey, an artist in the FGC, created a piece based on Mike Ross and E. Honda and placed it on eBay.

The auction went well — at first — then the person who bid over $200 on the auction decided to default, and the runner-up decided he didn't want the artwork anymore, and so the piece has been sitting around ever since.

TheLeftHandedMonkey decided to put the painting to use by slapping it with his motorcycle glove to issue a challenge to the real Mike Ross, who accepted and now a first to ten will be happening in SSF4 AE v2012 tomorrow night on the PandaxGaming stream at 9 p.m. EDT.

The winner will get Mike Ross' face, and if the LeftHandedMonkey loses, he'll also donate $50 each to Level|Up and Team Sp00ky. You can find the whole promo video after the jump which explains the situation and includes Mike Ross face slapping, albeit not from a maid.

Daigo's prime target at the Topanga World League was Xian; feels that winning the league with Ryu is a large accomplishment recently posted an event report on the now concluded Topanga World League. The post included a brief interview with MCZ|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, the winner of the league.

Daigo mentioned that during the Topanga World League his 'prime target' was the EVO 2013 champion, RZR|Xian. According to The Beast, his reason for focusing on Xian was because of something said to him at the Mad Catz Unveiled event last year, where Daigo won the exhibition against Xian with a convincing 10-0.

After taking his lumps, the EVO 2013 champion told Daigo, "it's not over yet," so it seems that The Beast may have wanted to prove even more of a point this time around. Daigo went on to defeat Xian once again at the Topanga World League with a score of 7-5.
