'Cody was only just looking, Jessica' - D-NO notes a hilarious detail where Jessica punches Cody for staring at females in Street Fighter Alpha 2

D-NO is pretty prominent in the FGC for finding weird bugs and glitches in fighting games. He is also known for finding details that you may not have noticed while deep into the action of the match.

This time, D-NO has noted a hilarious sequence in Street Fighter Alpha 2 where Cody and Jessica are in the background of a stage. This event transpires if a female character passes by Cody in the background.

And Street Fighter 4 loses the #1 spot by four votes! Here's which Street Fighter game series our readers voted as their favorite

Updated: And the results are in! To see how our readers voted, be sure to hit the jump.

Earlier: It's no secret that Street Fighter as a series is really a big series with a bunch of subseries - since all of their entries have received multiple sequels or revisions, except Street Fighter 5, so far, though that has been divided up into seasons per year.

The head Street Fighter series is vast, so much so that each subseries is also very expansive, and each tends to have a very distinct feel to them. With that in mind, I decided to throw together a poll to settle it once and for all - which series is the very best one?

That's not a question we can reliably answer, but we can make a fair approximation at least as to which is most popular among you, our loyal readerbase.

So delay no longer! Jump below and cast your vote.

Have you seen the Street Fighter Easter Egg in Resident Evil 7? There's a very subtle reference hidden away in the Baker estate

Now that we've played through Resident Evil 7 enough to stop worrying about jump scares around every corner, (highly recommended if you haven't gotten your hands on it, by the way) we've begun exploring the details of the Baker estate, and discovered a little Street Fighter Easter Egg in the process.

There are a few different points in the game where you'll come across bookcases featuring various novels, the titles of which are often nods to Resident Evil stories passed, and one of these in particular caught our eye:

As you can see in the photo, "Fighting Street" is one of these book titles. This isn't just a play on the title of fellow Capcom franchise Street Fighter, it's a direct reference to a time long ago in Street Fighter's history.

'Street Fighter surprises' coming around E3 and possibly San Diego Comic Con, according to Ono

Street Fighter is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and Capcom has already started the celebration with the unveiling of Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers -- an updated version of Super Street Fighter 2 that adds new combatants Evil Ryu and Violent Ken.

Speaking with IGN, Street Fighter Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono assured fans that there is still more to come.

"Around E3 timing, maybe even San Diego Comic-Con, we have one or two surprises we hope our fans will look forward to," Ono told IGN.

As we know, Street Fighter 5 is currently in its second season and there is still much we haven't seen revealed just yet. Five DLC characters remain unannounced, and we will very likely see new costumes and/or stages throughout the year.

Wait... was that a glimpse of Street Fighter on VR? Mysterious clip in Ultra Street Fighter 2 trailer is piquing interest

In a surprise turn of events, Capcom announced "Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers" for the Nintendo Switch last night. An new installment in the classic SF2 series that adds two new fighters: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken.

The official announcement trailer was released just this morning, and what we saw in it was pretty standard: gameplay footage, information about the upcoming title, etc.. However, two seconds of video were particularly peculiar.

If you watch closely around the 2:08 mark in the trailer, you'll spot a quick clip of Ryu throwing a fireball from a first-person angle. This footage looks nothing like Ultra Street Fighter 2 and has fans everywhere wondering what it could be.

You can check out stills of the clip below.

Did you know it was Guy that gave Rolento the giant scar on his face? Learn all about the Nike-wearing ninja in this History Behind the Warrior

It's time for another lesson in fighting game history, and today's subject is none other than Capcom's Guy.

Though he's probably most recognized today for his appearance in Street Fighter 4, Guy first started kicking barrels in Final Fight as he teamed up with Mike Haggar and Cody Travers to fight against the Mad Gear gang.

He would make his way into the Street Fighter franchise during the Alpha series, along with fellow Final Fighter, Rolento. It was actually Guy who gave Rolento that nasty scar across his eye.

Find out all about the quick-footed master of Bushinryu in History Behind the Warrior's latest video.
