EVO 2015 lineup to be revealed live tomorrow evening on Twitch - which titles do you think will be main games this year

After a lengthy consideration process, this year's EVO games are now locked in -- and they're slated to be revealed this week, EVO Championship Series founding member Joey 'Mr. Wizard' Cuellar announced on Twitter today.

I hope you're ready to find out which fighting game titles will be made the main games at EVO this year. If not, well, you have slightly more than 24 hours to brace yourselves. For as it turns out, by "this week", what Mr. Wizard really means is "tomorrow night". Time to get hype, fighting game fans!

That's when a special EVO 2015 announcement Twitch stream is scheduled to happen (starting at 7PM PST).

EventHubs lists top 50 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players, #10 - #01 - voice your opinions on Twitter: #USF4rank

Important note: Today we'll be revealing the top 10 live, one at a time, every 20 minutes. So be sure to stay tuned here at EventHubs to catch all of the players as they're announced.

That's right, folks! You read that headline correctly. Tonight we're back with the top 50 players in Ultra Street Fighter 4, beginning from when the game first dropped back in June of last year.

The EventHubs team met up once again to vote on each player based on tournament results since the last time we compiled this list, factoring in player skill across the globe, and personal opinion.

The players listed here have performed at big events consistently, and players who haven't traveled much outside of their region were not included because it's a bit too difficult to judge them based on their performances only in the local area.

We have given each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have the top 10 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players listed.

If you'd like to join the discussion, or want to tear our heads off for our choices (again), you can voice your opinions about our list on Twitter using the hashtag "#USF4rank." You can also share your thoughts in our comments section, as usual.

Kung Lao returns to Mortal Kombat X as an old man; details on his Tempest, Buzz Saw & Hat Trick variations, new social online features

The next Mortal Kombat X character reveal is slated to drop later this week, on January the 2nd in the new year, via an exclusive feature in the new issue of Finnish gaming magazine Pelaaja when it officially hits newsstands.

But copies of the new issue are already shipping out to some newsstands and subscribers, and it looks like some Mortal Kombat fans have been able to get their hands on an early copy.

Thanks to them, we now know that the next character to be revealed will be Kung Lao. NetherRealm Studios is likely to post a full character reveal trailer for the returning (and aged) Shaolin monk -- but for now, enjoy these early images of Mortal Kombat X's Kung Lao:

Super Arcade moving locations! Exclusive interview with owner Mike Watson

Super Arcade tweeted earlier today that they would be moving to a new location.

This news came to the surprise of virtually everyone in the SoCal scene and seemingly out of left field.

Immediately after the tweet popped up there were many inquiries as to why the arcade was moving and to where. The most popular question however, was "Why is this happening just months after the Kick Starter renovation process?"

We contacted Super Arcade's owner, Mike Watson with a few questions regarding this big and sudden change. Hit the jump to see the interview.

Ultra Street Fighter 4 tiers reset, old scores available in archives

With the 1.04 release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, we thought it was a good time to reset the tier scores and start from new as the game had undergone new balance changes.

If you're wondering where the old listings went to, you can scroll down and find them at the bottom of the tiers page, or you can look directly at the old USF4 tiers index and match up table.

To keep the tier listings from being as susceptible to erratic change in their initial phase, we've implemented a few new things to help normalize the initial votes. It's worth noting again that trolling our tiers can and likely will lead to a lifetime ban, as our automated system is constantly checking for people who abuse their votes.

There are additional measures in place to help ensure user voting stays accurate as well.

All match up comments were retained though, so if you want to discuss any of the match ups, or offer advice on how to counter a specific characters, those previous bits of knowledge are still intact.

So head on over and see how things are shaking out now.

If you have any questions, as always, feel free to leave them below.

Yoshinori Ono will share another 'secret detail' about Street Fighter V at Capcom Cup next week, teases elements that fans have always wanted

After the PlayStation Experience keynote address was over, caught up with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono for a brief interview to talk about the series' future.

In this interview, Ono talks about how the gameplay footage of Ryu and Chun-Li fighting were originally not meant to be shown for today, what kind of special announcement he's got prepared for next week, and why fans of past Street Fighter games would find it appealing.

Find out more in our full translation of the interview below.

---Famitsu: Finally, Street Fighter 5 has been officially announced!

Yoshinori Ono: (With a slightly bitter smile) Well, first of all, my sincere apologies about Capcom accidentally leaking the news beforehand. What I heard happened was that the PR team was so excited for this announcement that they got careless with it. My apologies to our friends in the media.

Street Fighter 5 trailer analysis: Special moves, guard breaks and breakaway walls?

It's only about a minute and thirty seconds long, but it might be the most exciting minute and thirty seconds of our lives thus far.

The Street Fighter 5 game play trailer features original favorites Ryu and Chun-Li fighting in a stage that looks much like the 'table stage' from Thrid Strike.

Though it's on the short side, there are a few things we've noticed that may be indicative of some of the features that SF5 will offer. Please keep in mind that this is still 'work in progress' footage so any and all of this could change.

The first notable aspect we saw was the wall break. Chun hits Ryu through the side of the building and he ends up inside. We assume when this happens, the aggressor follows and the fight resumes in a new area but it's a little early to tell.
