Apart from Capcom's USF4 stage program and the Capcom Pro Tour Asia finals, an entire slew of activities will be held at GameStart 2014, including a Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- 3on3 team tournament (the game will also be playable at the venue) and meet-the-producer stage segments with SCE Japan Studio's Masaaki Yamagiwa (Bloodborne) and Junichi Yoshizawa (Freedom Wars).

Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore from the Killer Instinct community has passed away today; SuperArcade, R/Kappa, Grimmmz organizing donation drives

Eight hours ago, Terrance 'PushaTee' Moore, an active player in SoCal's Killer Instinct scene, tweeted that he would be going up to play on stream next at Level Up's The Runback weekly tournament series. He was very excited to be playing at the tournament, and had rushed down from work to attend it.

Later that night, however, PushaTee collapsed at the event, prompting the organizers to call for an ambulance immediately. Paramedics soon arrived on the scene to take him to the emergency ward.

We're hearing reports from multiple accounts (Markman23, Jebailey, Dieminion) this morning that the paramedics did their best, and that PushaTee has passed on.

All of the staffers here at EventHubs would like to express our condolences to PushaTee's friends and family. Please leave some kind words for the dearly departed in the comments below, in memory of him, if you can.

Grimmmz, a close friend of PushaTee, has made a tribute video in memory of the KI player, which you can check out below.

Capcom Cup 2014 VIP tickets now on sale; grab yours now before all 300 of them are gone

Although the historic Warfield Theatre in downtown San Francisco -- the venue for this year's Capcom Cup -- can officially accommodate up to 2,300 attendees, not every single one of those seats is going to give you the best possible view of all the action on-stage.

But about 300 of them will.

Back when the venue and programme details for Capcom Cup 2014 was announced last week, Capcom also announced that there would be 300 VIP tickets for fans who'd like to be sitting as close to the players and special guests as possible. VIP tickets will also come with a swag bag, as well as guarantee entry to an official after party at the Folsom Street Foundry -- where you'll get to mingle with the pros, and maybe even Capcom's very own Yoshinori Ono or Peter "Combofiend" Rosas.

If you're planning on attending Capcom Cup 2014 in person, there's no mistaking it: having a VIP ticket is going to give you the best experience, so you might want to grab yours before all 300 of them are sold out.

And the clock starts ticking now: Capcom Cup 2014's ticketing page is now up!

Riptor and Cinder silhouettes shown in Killer Instinct Season 2 launch trailer, a glimpse at all upcoming characters

Killer Instinct Season 2 continues to expand its roster. While previous trailers announced classic favorites TJ Combo and Maya, it had been teased that two more original KI characters would also be returning combatants.

This latest showing keeps the character reveals enigmatic, only showing silhouettes of the newest additions. However, two very recognizable shapes make it clear that Riptor and Cinder are returning to join the tournament. All of this coincides with the upgraded graphics and new moves.

Check out a handful of screen-caps showing the silhouettes for each of the upcoming season 2 characters.

Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS launched

To coincide with the North American release of Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS, we've launched tiers for Super Smash Bros. 4 here on EventHubs.

Like our other tier sections, this is a match-up based listing where every possible combination in the game can be voted on.

Once you've filled out the votes for a character, you can easily share them on social media.

Also, with this release a stats area is available, and you can find other Smash 4 players using our very handy Fight Tracker tool.

Once the Wii U version is released, we'll archive and reset these listings, and start again focusing on the main title that will be used in the competitive scene.

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.

All secret characters unlocked - Duckhunt, Bowser Jr., Ganondorf, R.O.B., Jigglypuff, and more confirmed for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Super Smash Bros. 3DS is set to be released in Japan this Friday, but a select few have already gotten their hands on a retail copy. With live streams running throughout the night and more this morning, all secret characters in the handheld title have been revealed.

R.O.B., Bowser Jr., Wario, Dr. Mario, Ganondorf, Mr. Game and Watch, Duckhunt (the dog from the NES zapper game), Dark Pit, Falco, and Ness have been confirmed playable in Super Smash Bros. 3DS. While Lucina was revealed previously, she has to be unlocked before she can be played.

With the unveiling of R.O.B., it appears that the aforementioned characters now concludes the list of unlockable fighters in Super Smash Bros. 3DS. When R.O.B. was unlocked over on gema_yue's stream, a message popped up saying that all secret characters have been unlocked.

You can check out the screenshots below, and more images after the jump.

Be sure to keep your eye on our Stream Directory as broadcasts streaming Super Smash Bros. 3DS will automatically show up on our list.

Capcom working on fix for Steam multiplayer issues; private Endless lobbies are unaffected and playable in Ultra Street Fighter 4 PC

Since the PC version of Ultra Street Fighter 4 was released on Steam earlier this week, there has been many reports of users experiencing a number of issues with the game.

Most notably, many USF4 PC players have claimed that the online modes are virtually unplayable at the moment, due to severe latency issues.

Capcom is aware of the issues, and they're currently working on a fix to root out the problems, the official Capcom Fighters Twitter account announced yesterday.

Stream directory no longer lists non-fighting games, additional improvements may be on the way

Josh 'TheUncharted' Kapple made a nifty improvement to our live stream directory based on some of the new features Twitch has made available to developers.

Now, for a streamer to show up in our live listing, they need to be streaming a game that's approved by our team — e.g. an actual fighting game.

If a streamer who normally hosts fighting games decides to stream a bit of Call of Duty, they'll no longer show up in our listing for the time they're running that game.

As soon as they start streaming a fighting game, they'll show up again, though.

We're also looking at adding a few more bells and whistles to our stream directory in the very near future, so please keep checking back.

After the jump you'll find a list of games our stream directory supports, and if we missed anything you think should be included, please leave a comment below explaining why.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 update (PS3/X360/Arcade) on August 8 removes Poison's while-rising glitch, Rolento's invisible wall jump, and more

Following the release of Ultra Street Fighter 4 in Japan today, Capcom has announced that an update patch that addresses a number of known bugs will be released tomorrow, August 8, for the PS3, X360 and arcade versions of the game.

This update is not a rebalance patch, but rather fixes some of unintended properties on a number of characters' moves. Most notably, with this update, Rolento's invisible wall jump and Poison's while-rising glitch will be removed.

Check out our translations of the fixes or changes below.
