More Omega USF4 footage: Honda has salt throwing attack and new charging move - Ryu has a parry

Some new Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage of Omega mode has surfaced from Capcom. The development team rolls through new additions that E. Honda and Blanka have, along with a handful of other cast members.

In Blanka's case, his vertical roll travels straight up, and has a follow up air attack if it connects.

E. Honda also has a new series of attacks as he charges forward, and he can also throw salt at his opponent, which barely does any damage.

Ryu also shows off his parry skills against Chun-Li.

Dropping qbombs: Pepeday lands over 30 quesadilla bombs on Bonchan in grand finals at TGS tournament

FGC Pepeday and Bonchan faced off in the grand finals last night at the Tokyo Game Show 2014 tournament for Ultra Street Fighter 4.

This was the first major that an El Fuerte player had won to date, and Pepeday did it all while landing 35 quesadilla bombs over the course of eight games.

Pepeday connected 18 of these bombs in the first 10 seconds of the match, which means over half of the quesadilla bombs that landed came within the opening moments of the set. Here's a quick highlight reel of some of the qbombs he nailed.

Mike Ross took Hugo!? Mago selected Yang?!? Highlights of USF4 TGS exhibition between these two competitors

Mike Ross and MCZ|Mago had an entertaining first to 5 exhibition yesterday in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and we wanted to look back at some of the highlights you may have missed.

Ross shocked many people by picking Hugo instead of his typical main, E. Honda, in this set, but Mago had a surprise of his own, choosing to go with what many are saying is his new main, Yang, instead of Fei Long, which he's ran for the last several years.

Ross opened strong in this set, with a lot of very clever reads, which did massive damage to the low stamina Yang. Here are a few early highlights in animated form.

Team RnK (Rush and Kill) members, xOver & Lucius, have a real treat for Ultra Street Fighter 4 fans today, as they've released part four of their combo music video series.

Blanka has a teleport that deals damage, Sagat's EX Tiger Raid does 9 hits - Daigo and Mago test out Ultra Street Fighter 4's Omega Mode

Yesterday at Tokyo Game Show 2014, Capcom unveiled their brand new, upcoming Ultra Street Fighter 4 DLC, Omega Mode. We have since seen images and even video footage of the free content in action, but now we get to see a bit more.

During their presentation at the expo, Capcom brought in MCZ|Daigo and MCZ|Mago to give Omega Mode a whirl on stage. The two pro players tested out Ryu and Sagat against the Capcom devs, and we get to see some new tricks from a handful of characters.

For example, Blanka is used in one of the matches, and we see that in Omega Mode, the king of the jungle has a teleport move that actually hits on it's way up. This move acts much like Spinal's Shadow Skeleport in Killer Instinct.

Additionally, Sagat's Tiger Raid from Street Fighter Alpha 3 makes a return, and the EX version deals 9 hits.

You can check out the full presentation below, and the video embed will jump you straight to the Daigo and Mago footage.

Updated: Omega Mode is meant to be fun, not balanced; update v1.04 inbound, fixes unintentional nerfs and PC online issues

Updated: Combofiend posted his latest blog entry over on Capcom Unity which divulges more information on the upcoming Omega Mode in Ultra Street Fighter 4. According to the Capcom representative, this new mode has a much heavier emphasis on fun than it does balance. The development team mainly focused on making all 44 characters feel new.

The upcoming game mode will be playable online, but only in an non-ranked setting. We can expect more information on Omega Mode as it surfaces.

This blog entry also states that a new patch is heading our way in October. The v1.04 update will fix the unintentional nerfs made to Decapre, Rolento, and Cody in the previous update, and will also add a Delayed Wake Up option to training mode. Additionally, a number of PC online connectivity issue fixes are being made, such as players receiving pings mid-match, causing slowdown.

A full breakdown for the v1.04 patch will be unveiled closer to the update's release.

Earlier: Over at Tokyo Game Show 2014 tonight, Capcom announced a new game mode set to be added to Ultra Street Fighter 4. This fresh content is called "Omega Mode."

In Omega Mode, characters gain access to a wide array of new, crazy special moves and changes. Ken can shoot fireballs from a kick special move, Guile throws three Sonic Booms in succession for 7 hits, and much more.

Below we have added a video breakdown of this new mode.

Count the number of Perfects and push ups! Alex Myers and LowTierGod duke it out in Wednesday Night Fights' latest USF4 grudge match

Earlier this week, another Wednesday Night Fights grudge match took place at the weekly event in Walnut, California. Alex Myers and LowTierGod battled it out in a first-to-five Ultra Street Fighter 4 set, but street cred wasn't the only prize on the line that night.

The loser of this particular set had to perform 30 push ups on stream. This bout proved to be incredibly entertaining, and with commentary from Aris and Blockbuster Jon, this is one you won't want to miss.

If you'd like to cut straight to the results, be sure to check out our Wednesday Night Fights 3.5 results story. This video contains a bit of language NSFW.

Desk returns to show that Chun-Li's LP into Lightning Legs is an excellent pressure tool, and incredibly difficult to perform in USF4

Combo wizard Desk returns with another Ultra Street Fighter 4 demonstration. Today we learn how to combo Chun-Li's light punch into Lightning Legs, and how it can be applied in a match.

Desk explains that this particular combo must be performed in the span of 12 frames. With the 3 frame start up of LP, and the 9 frames of hitstop, you'll have to input a kick button on every other frame.

This technique works as a great pressure tool, as LP is much faster than crouching HP. However, the difficulty level for pulling this off is much higher than the cr. HP - Lightning Legs BnB.

Check out Desk's latest tutorial below.
