Justin Wong explains how to interrupt being downloaded, and what you can do to recognize that you've been figured out

EG|Justin Wong's latest column here on EventHubs explores how to interrupt being downloaded while playing fighting games, and what you can do to recognize when you've been figured out.

Justin gives a full analysis of a SSF4 AE v2012 match between Snake Eyez (Zangief) and Uryo (Sakura) from Shadowloo Showdown 2013, noting specific moments where the flow of the match changed. Here's a snip from the write up.

I watch a lot of fighting game streams and there are many times where I see people in the chat type "Downloaded" or "He got figured out."

This chapter will focus on how to distinguish that YOU are being downloaded and once you do realize that you are being downloaded, how to interrupt the download and continue on playing YOUR game.

Many people do not even realize that the download has already begun. Here is a common one that happens a lot but people do not realize it.

As always, you can find a full archive of Justin Wong's Step Up Your Game columns here.

Rumor: Ultra Street Fighter 4 console release date possibly leaked, July 11-13 for North America and Europe

In a recent video posted to GameTrailers, with a new installment of their EpicBattleCry series, they discuss a lot of topics at hand for the new console releases and upcoming titles.

At one point, they start discussing Street Fighter 4, and the new update coming for the game, as well as noting that it will be released for consoles on July 11th and July 13th, respectively, for North America and Europe.

This falls in line with earlier statements from Capcom, saying that Ultra Street Fighter 4 isn't where it should be at this point, and the Arcade release date set for April, with consoles said to be getting it "a bit later".

The tournament circuit is currently littered with amazing players from all walks of life, spanning from one fighting game to another. We decided to take a closer look at the incredible talent that is the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 scene.

The EventHubs team came together and voted on each player based on tournament results, and player skill across the globe.

We gave each player a score between 1 - 10, then averaged all of the numbers together. Today we have player #20 - player #11 listed. Be sure to check out which players ranked #50 - 41, #40 - #31, #30 - #21, and #20 - #11.

Street Fighter announcement incoming for PlayStation 4? Watch this bizarre Hadouken Cabs teaser

Sony has put up a ridiculous and kind of awesome teaser for Hadouken Cabs. What this means exactly is up for debate. An email sent to VG247 this morning stated:

Don’t just call a cab! Call Hadouken Cabs! Hadouken Cabs. Knocking the competition out since 1987.

They also use the PS4 Twitter hashtag #4theplayers. Some of the Easter eggs shown in the video include a "PS1994" license plate on the taxi cab, a URL on the sign which points to this website, and the clip briefly shows the PS4 controller.

This teaser likely means that Sony has worked out some kind of deal for Street Fighter on the PlayStation 4, but that's only speculation at this point, as nothing has been officially confirmed, yet.

Showing the FGC a ton of love - Mad Catz has sponsored over 300 events to date

Since Mad Catz started sponsoring tournaments back in 2009, they've had a hand in helping over 300 events in the fighting game community.

Their support of the FGC isn't contained by boundaries on a map either, as they've sponsored events in countries around the globe — and helped out multiple fighting games scenes, regardless of their titles of choice.

From Street Fighter to Tekken, Mad Catz has backed a considerable amount of tournament games.

"We have a genuine interest in the fighting game scene, that's why [we] continue to support its players and events year after year," said Mad Catz's Mark Julio, better known in the scene as MarkMan.

You might think Mad Catz has offered this support because of the profits they bring in from all of the events they sponsor, but Julio painted a different picture.

Hope you like this! Yun's EX Command Grab kara throw has range comparable to Zangief's SPD in SSF4 AE v2012

The rich get richer, as a kara version of Yun's regular and EX Command Grab was recently discovered by Ryu_Apprentice in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.

This gives Yun's EX Command Grab comparable range to Zangief's Spinning Piledriver (SPD). It's performed by kara-canceling his command grab from an EX Shoulder.

Note that for some reason, if you kara an EX strike attack into a normal command throw, it won't burn meter. Hit the jump to see the clip, along with an explanation of how it's performed.
