SFV moves listings, tiers and more

Tekken moves are easy... right? Eric Jacoubus sure makes it look that way in his real life Baek combo video

This man is a machine! Best known in the FGC for his work as Curtis Stryker in Mortal Kombat: Legacy season 2, Eric Jacobus has been cranking out these fascinating videos wherein he brings Tekken characters to life.

Jacobus dresses as each character, then films himself very accurately performing a whole slew of their moves. With the sound and visual effects added in, it really feels like we're watching these characters come to life.

Below you'll see Jacobus pull off Baek's 10 hit combo:

Eric Jacobus performs Bob's moves from Tekken, and this might be his most impressive video yet

Stuntman Eric Jacobus continues to wow us with his "Tekken-iques" as he's called them. This time he dons a pair of familiar suspenders over a red shirt as he takes on the roll of the plump Bob Richards.

When Jacobus starts with the high-flying spin kicks, we're reminded of just how big of a walking contradiction Bob is, as his large size and nimble acrobatics don't seem to really go together.

While Jacobus' recreation here is quite amazing, we know there's still only one man with the size and acrobatics to truly pull off the roll of "Bob in real life." Click the image below to see a snippet from Jacobus' video.

Tekken comes alive as Eric Jacobus expertly executes Lei's techniques in real life

Stuntman Eric Jacobus is back with another real life Tekken recreation. This time around he brings us Lei Wulong's "Tekken-iques" from his drunken boxing and snake fist styles.

Jacobus does a great job of capturing Lei's very pronounced and identifiable movements. A handful of his techniques see him fall to the ground in fairly dramatic fashions, and Jacobus executes them perfectly.

You can see a quick clip below as he performs the Phoenix Strike and the Hopping Phoenix.

Tekken moves in real life: Prepare to feel out of shape watching this guy perform all of Hwoarang's attacks

Eric Jacobus is a stuntman from the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas. You might recognize him as Stryker in Mortal Kombat Legacy.

Today, we have one of his videos in which he takes on the role of another fighting game character: Tekken's Hwoarang. This time, however, Jacobus simply performs the fighter's move list from what appears to be Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Well, I shouldn't say "simply;" these attacks look hard as Hell to pull off in real life.

What's most impressive is the quick multi-kicks that don't utilize a return to standing position. The following GIF is a quick preview of what you can expect to see here.

You can check out Jacobus' full video of "The Tekken Workout" below, although we don't recommend trying this at home.

Street Fighter 5 to be playable at Red Fight District IV next month, will we see a new build with the next character?

Red Fight District IV is taking place in Amsterdam on October 3rd - 4th, and the tournament is shaping up to be a doozie.

Tournaments for Ultra Street Fighter 4, Mortal Kombat X, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- are scheduled, and players such as MD|Luffy, LLL|MBR, and Gonzales from Japan are expected to compete. This Capcom Pro Tour Ranking event will surely be a spectacle to behold, but there's an added incentive for those who attend.

Street Fighter 5 will be featured at Red Fight District IV and playable for attendees. By now, there's a fairly good chance we'll be seeing another character reveal tomorrow, based on Ono's hints. This could very well mean that a newer build of SF5 might be playable at the event, especially with the tournament taking place nearly a month after tomorrow's reveal.

If so, we can expect to see plenty of gameplay footage featuring the next fighter in action. And at the very least, the PAX R. Mika build will be featured, which means more footage of everyone's favorite luchador.

You can check out the trailer for Red Fighter District IV after the jump.
