Ryan Hart: 'Juri is going to be an issue in Ultra', EventHubs exclusive interview covers Ultra, preferred fighting game, tournament mindset and more

In the beginning of March, the thrilling IVGC tournament was taking place in Cannes, France. EventHubs' very own writer MajinTenshinhan was present at the scene, and made sure to grab six different interviews, five of which have been published regularly since.

Today, we publish our sixth and final interview, with the Europe's seasoned expert in multiple different titles, Ryan Hart. Below, you'll find a quick snippet of the interview.

MajinTenshinhan: In the Street Fighter 4 series, you've been known for the last few years for your very strong Sagat play, but it's also no secret that you're quite capable with several other characters as well. Once Ultra Street Fighter 4 hits, do you think that you'll be switching characters a lot in tournaments, or do you think you'll be sticking to mostly Sagat?

Ryan Hart: Originally I thought Id be using many characters again but after trying the game today I think I will try to have one main with perhaps one sub character. When I tested Ultra I found that I couldn't time the jump in on their delayed wakeup reliably, this meant that I kept eating anti airs or wakeups for free.

With EVO coming up its important to focus on match stability for short tournament sets. This may change once I've had more time with the game, but at the moment I'm not really seeing what I'm supposed to be trying to do when they use the delayed wakeup option, nor how that is going to be a reliable path of play since I'm also risking my advantage by guessing their wakeup method and then their wakeup attack or defence on top of that.

Of course this may change over time, it's just how I currently feel. May as well just forget all that, get some space and do a fireball when they get up, if it hits meaty its all good, and if it doesn't then at least you are safe.

Harada: Breast jiggle physics were originally banned in Tekken games, but a designer sneaked it into 5th game

Perhaps Eliza's character model in Tekken Revolution might have been the catalyst for this, but recently on Twitter a fan asked Tekken Project development lead Katsuhiro Harada in Japanese the following question:

"I've only noticed this recently while playing TTT2 and Tekken Revolution, but it appears that the breasts on female characters [in Tekken] now do jiggle a little, in the same way that female characters in other games often do.

Although that's something I'm quite happy about, since which installment of Tekken were these jiggle physics added in? Also, which characters have the most and least amount of jiggle?" wrote a Tekken fan on Twitter.

Apparently, in the older Tekken games, breast jiggle physics were never implemented -- but at some point, the team changed their mind and decided to include them.

Or at least, one member of the Tekken Project development team decided to implement it, and took matters into his own hands.

Bringing an old concept into the modern age - Kickstarter project to revitialize Super Arcade

If you're anything like me, you love that good old arcade feel. Especially for fighting game enthusiasts, game centers like these are generally something to hold very dear.

Arcades have been closing left and right during the last few years, but one of them still stands strong. Super Arcade in Walnut, California is one of the very few such places that is still running, but it might not be viable to do so much longer unless some changes are put in place.

Mike Watson, the owner of Super Arcade, has started a new Kickstarter project, where you can help to build Super Arcade into the palace of fighting games that everyone would love for it to be.

User hacked Tekken Revolution to give himself max stats, resulting in 1 hit kills & seemingly unlimited health - Harada says he'll be banned

A user figured out how to hack Tekken Revolution's stat system, giving himself seemingly unlimited health and resulting in 1 hit kills when he attacked his opponent.

The player, who goes by the name of BUTBUTWHYY, showed up in an online match with a power rating of 99,999 and both his endurance and vigor set to 9,999.

Another player was able to hit him continuously in the 2nd round, draining about 7 life bars total, but still ended up losing the set due to time over, and having less health.

Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada said that they would ban this player who hacked the system.

You can also see in the clip that one touch from this player who hacked the system resulted in a K.O. Hit the jump to view the video.
