Huge interview with KaneBlueRiver, says that through fighting games he 'learned his place in this world', explains how he started playing and more

Huge interview with KaneBlueRiver, says that through fighting games he 'learned his place in this world', explains how he started playing and more KaneBlueRiver has become somewhat of a big name lately, placing consistently high in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournaments, with his somewhat unusual team of Hulk, Haggar and Sentinel. This drew the attention of website Polygon, who wrote a massive article on him, featuring a lot of insight into this player, who exploded onto the scene and quickly became a fan favorite.

Here's a snippet to start you off, where Nicolas Gonzalez, more commonly known as KaneBlueRiver, explains his life situation before he got into fighting games.

I was a person that was pretty much frozen in life: no real aspirations, no motivation, just surviving more than living. I had dropped out of university after trying to get through it multiple times because I kept failing.

I never learned how to study. I cruised through 12 years of elementary and high school without ever having to study and get good grades, especially in math. When I got to the university, I crushed my programming subjects with ease, mostly, but the math was completely different, too abstract. I felt lost immediately and collapsed under that.

Capcom currently has no plans to bring Ultra Street Fighter 4 to next-gen consoles or other modern systems - PS3, Xbox 360 and PC only at this moment Since the announcement of Ultra Street Fighter 4 during EVO weekend, many questions have arisen from fans all over the globe. Players have been hitting up various Capcom representatives on Twitter in order to wring out as many details as they can about the upcoming Street Fighter 4 series update.

Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono was recently asked about the platforms we may be seeing USF4 make an appearance on; more specifically, if the update would be released on any next-generation consoles.

According to Mr. Ono, Ultra Street Fighter 4 is only set to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC at this time.

Updated with retraction: eSports earnings from SSF4 AE and v2012

Updated with retraction: eSports earnings from SSF4 AE and v2012 Story retracted: While I was aware that the list itself did not include all of the events during the last 2 years beforehand, it has come to my attention that all of the events listed as represented are, in fact, not accurately listed, with several of them not showing any of the money earned for players. This makes the list woefully inaccurate even by the standards set, and does not fit even close to the standard of posting we at EventHubs deem acceptable.

I apologise from the bottom of my heart for not researching this list properly before posting, and will do my best to ensure that similar mistakes do not occur in the future. When posting stories like this, it is easy to rely on your tipsters based on their previous tip history or any personal relation to them, which is no excuse in any way for me to not check through the material of the story thoroughly before posting.

With many of the persons listed in this story being wrongfully represented, we have decided to retract the story and hope that all of our loyal readers will be able to accept my apology, and continue to visit our site in the future, with a promise of a higher standard of posting.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle gameplay featuring Joseph, Akira, Narancia, Hermes, second Jousuke, Cars, Kakyoin, Okuyasu, Mista and Diavolo

CyberConnect2 have streamed the final pools for their JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle - All-Star Battle League (always the mouthful), featuring 10 more characters seeing significant playtime. While the matches are CPU vs. CPU, it does show gameplay of some highly anticipated characters for this upcoming game.

This is a good video to check out if you want to get a feel for the game, or if any of your favourite characters happen to be included in the gang above. The first video features Joseph Joestar, the main protagonist of the series' second part, Battle Tendency, Akira Otoishi, a antagonist stand user from Part 4, Diamond's Don't Break, who uses his stand Red Hot Chili Pepper to manipulate electricity.

Joining them in the first group is Narancia Ghirga from Part 5, Vento Aureo, with his stand Aerosmith that functions as a small aircraft Narancia can control, to track his enemies via radar or shoot them with automated weapons attached to the aircraft. The group also sees Hermes Costello from Part 6, Stone Ocean, with her stand Kiss that allows her to duplicate objects and return them to their original form throughu the use of stickers, and Jousuke Higashikata, the main protagonist of Part 8, JoJolion, who shares his name with the Part 4 protagonist, making things generally confusing. A common fan trend is to refer to him as Jo2uke. He uses his stand Soft and Wet to take properties from one object or surface and remove it, or apply it to something else (such as potentially removing the friction from a human being, causing them to slide uncontrollably, or take the hardness of a rock and apply it to something else). You can catch all of these characters in action right below.
