Hands-on with Ultra Street Fighter IV's Decapre photo
Hands-on with Ultra Street Fighter IV's Decapre
by Ben Pack

Earlier this week I got to spend some time with Ultra Street Fighter IV, Capcom’s fourth and final iteration of the original 2008 game. My demo was presented by professional fighting game player turned Capcom employee Peter “Combofiend” Rosas, who walked me through the fifth and final new character, Decapre, as well as the other changes of the version.

The game features five new characters, including four adopted from Street Fighter X Tekken. These characters are Hugo, Elena, Rolento and Poison. The first two characters are meant to play like their versions in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, and the later two are more similar to their SFxT versions.

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z photo
Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z
by Wesley Ruscher

On paper, the thought of participating in an eight-player Dragon Ball Z battle sounds like the stuff of fanboy dreams. Blasting Kamehamehas across the chasms of Namek while fighting alongside your favorite Saiyans could be as exhilarating virtually as it was to watch years ago on TV.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z attempts to recreate this in all its chaotic glory. More than a simple one-versus-one fighter, the game is jam packed with characters -- from practically the entirety of the franchise -- that can be pitted in teams of four against each other in any dream combination possible.

Unfortunately in reality, having four Krillins trying to dismantle the likes of Androids 16 through 19 together is not even half as entertaining as the thought is ridiculous.

Ryu and Ken have a rap battle about their dicks

Ninja Sex Party and Egoraptor's latest music video single from their Starbomb album is all about Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter having a rap battle. It's mostly a battle about their dicks and stuff. The animation this time around was done by Spazkidin3D, and if you like Egoraptor's style of comedy than you'll really enjoy the stuff Spazkid does.

This is your first look at Phase 4 in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade

This sample combo video of Dead or Alive 5's Phase 4 shows what she's all about -- a shrouded assassin that dashes and vanishes with great ease. She doesn't disappear for long though. That's when the punishment begins again.

The 5th new Ultra Street Fighter 4 character is Decapre
by Jonathan Holmes

Capcom is streaming play of newly announced playable character Decapre in Ultra Street Fighter 4 right now.

Like the iconic Cammy (Super Steet Fighter 2) and the lesser known Juni and Juli (Street Fighter Alpha 3), Decapre is one of Bison's "dolls", though she doesn't fight exactly like the dolls that came before her. She's got a teleport and laser knife gloves! Also, she wears a metal mask and quotes Metallica. Edgy!

Here's some history about her from Capcom:

"Making her first brief appearance in a Street Fighter game as a non-playable character in Street Fighter Alpha 3, where she was seen as one of M. Bison’s Dolls, Decapre now joins the fight! Although a partial mask hides a giant burn mark located on this Russian beauty’s face, challengers will be scarred by her quick and elusive scramble moves as well as her psycho power infused attacks, which allow her to share her pain with her opponents. Players can get their claws on Decapre and the rest of the all-star lineup in Ultra Street Fighter IV when the game begins releasing in June 2014."
