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.

Alex Valle chimes in on new Ultra Street Fighter 4 changes, gives history lesson of mechanic changes in older games

Alex Valle chimes in on new Ultra Street Fighter 4 changes, gives history lesson of mechanic changes in older games One of the legends of the fighting game community, LU|Alex Valle, jumped into the Ultra Street Fighter 4 gameplay mechanics discussion in a recent live stream.

Valle starts off by offering a history lesson of the Street Fighter games and how the mechanics changed so much starting from Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo on into the Alpha games.

He also delves into how vanilla Street Fighter 4 was originally perceived.

On the subject of using both ultras in USF4, Valle said, "I'm excited about that," because characters that had a defensive ultra, they might have an ultra they can use offensively to back it up now, he noted.

Alex also starts to break down how the individual characters will do in the new game, discussing Cammy, Akuma, Seth, Adon and several others.

"I think Akuma is going to be really, really good with two ultras," said Valle, although he added that he wouldn't be surprised to see nerfs to this character's sweep (cr.HK), demon flip, and jump back air fireball in the new title.

"Adon is going to be ridiculous with two [ultras]," said Valle, but he felt someone like GamerBee wouldn't use the double ultra setup against top Ryu players, like Daigo or himself, as it'd cut down the damage too much, so he felt like he'd stick with just ultra 1 for Adon for characters with strong fireball games.

This is just a taste of the discussion, to see the full stream archive, along with some time stamps of the key points, hit the jump.

Where is the champion? Where is Daigo? Umehara does not qualify for Capcom Cup

The most famous player in the history of the fighting game community didn't qualify for this year's Capcom Cup, although it was partially due to lack of attending key events.

A staple at official Capcom events for quite some time, and often considered the biggest threat to win any given Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tournament, MCZ|Daigo Umehara will be absent from a tournament many pegged to be the most competitive event of the year, outside of EVO.

His absence comes as a bit of a surprise for many, as there were multiple qualifying events held close to his homeland of Japan, but he didn't sign up for a single Capcom Cup qualifying tournament after the Tokyo Game Show in late September, and the only other event he attended which was applicable was EVO 2013.

Who will advance in the Capcom Asia round robin SSF4 AE v2012 tournament? The Capcom Cup Asia finals are being held this coming weekend, Nov. 8-10 in Singapore, and all of the qualifying spots have been decided.

Infiltration, RZR|Fuudo, AVM|GamerBee, EG|Momochi, Qanba|Dakou and DM|Gackt will face each other in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 in a Topanga League-styled round robin format to decide the final two qualifying spots for the Capcom Cup tournament.

Here's the official rule set so you'll know how this will go down.

• The matches will be played in a first-to-five format, with deuce rules. The first player to win 2 99-seconds round wins a game and earns a point. First player to gain 5 points wins the match. However if both players reach match point (4 wins), one player must take a 2-point advantage to claim the match.

• Players will be granted points based on how much they won a match by. For example, if a player wins 5-0, he gets 5 points. If a player loses 2-5, they get -3 points.

• If two players have won the same amount of sets, their placing will be decided by the amount of points they earned with the matches in said sets. If they also have the same amount of points, the placement between the two will be decided by who won between these two specific players.
