Ever had trouble doing a standing 720 ultra move? Do you even know what it is? Well Desk has a very good tutorial showing off how its done. Check it out!
Here is the description:
This is a new technique and entirely different from the method used by Vangief and other Zangief players. The existing method requires the player to hide or 'buffer' half of the motion in a normal or jump. This does not.
Its practicality is exactly parallel to how hardcore a player you are. So, if you're not hardcore, then it won't be practical.
Although technically, you only need 4 inputs after initiating your jump animation(up, right, down and left). You will most likely be going past diagonals. This will mean you have 7 frames to hit 7 inputs.

Some pretty exciting matches between two of the best Super Street Fighter players in the world.
It's happened just as most of us had predicted. Our hate for everything wrong with the Xbox One has made Microsoft change it's policies. Check it out!Straight from the horses mouth! Since their website is crashing right now. Read on Below: Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience. For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future. Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One. You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world. So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means: An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games– After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360. Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360. In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions. These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray. We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds. Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year. Read full story...

Tennis games have come a long way since the days of Tennis for Two and Pong. 2k Sports has recently released their latest Tennis title Top Spin 4. Is it worth your money? Find out in our Review.
It’s tennis season time, well at least in the gaming world. 2k Sports is back with another sports title. This time it’s for Top Spin 4 and it’s been almost 3 years since the last one. Tennis games have come a long way since the days of Tennis for Two and Pong. Is the new Top Spin 4 any good? Is it the same as Top Spin 3? Find out below.
Top Spin 4 has an impressive career mode filled with plenty of things to keep you busy. In career you create a custom character and start from the bottom of the rankings as a newcomer. Before you can start taking on the world’s best you’ll have to participate in sparring matches, training camps, and minor tournaments to build your rank. Each month you’ll be competing in minor tournaments and sparring matches to gain xp for customizing your attributes. This is where Top Spin 4 does a great job with character building. There are 20 levels for your created character to obtain which are broken down into 3 specific classes, Serve and Volley, Offensive Baseline Play, and Defensive Baseline Play. Serve and Volley is putting the pressure on opponents with net coverage and volleys, and performing precise serves to set up approach-shot opportunities. Offensive Baseline Play is strong shots from the baseline, forcing opponents to return weak shots, and giving power to your serves. Defensive Baseline Play is tiring out your opponent, using all of the different spin types, and being fast with high stamina. Each time you level up you are able to pick from one of these 3 classes which automatically build the secondary skills such as forehand, backhand, serve, speed, power, etc. This makes for a quick and painless leveling experience, making it easier to customize your character the way you want. Career mode is well over 30 hours of play and will keep you going long after you’ve reached level 20 in your character development.
Aside from the great career mode, Top Spin 4 offers a good amount of game modes to play. Exhibition is the quick match option where you choose singles or doubles, any one of the 25 pro players, any venue, and customize the rules to your liking. King of the Court is the party game mode, where you’ll play short matches and the loser leaves the court and a new challenger steps up to take their place. Top Spin Academy is where you can play the tutorials and lessons to learn the ins and outs of Top Spin 4. Practice Ground is where you can have a machine shoots balls at you while you practice hitting them back in the various ways Top Spin 4 has to offer without the worry of an opponent. Top Spin 4 also has online play with a variety of modes to choose from. Player Match is the online equivalent of exhibition. World Tour is an online career mode where you create a character gain xp and participate in season matches against gamers from around the globe. 2K Open is where you choose from one of the 25 pro players and help them climb the ranks in an online leaderboard for the 2K Open season.
The gameplay in Top Spin 4 is what you’d expect in a Tennis game. You serve, you return, and you try to score the most points in the most games. What makes Top Spin 4 different from most tennis games is the way the game is played. You have 5 types of shots, flat, top spin, slice, drop, and lob each with their own strengths and weaknesses. There are also special shot types as well, control, normal, power, and inside out, which determines whether you score a winner, or cause an error. This time around Top Spin 4 brings the realism to tennis games, where you must time all of your shots correctly to play successfully. Press a shot button too soon, and you perform a normal shot, press it too late and you may hit the ball out and cause an error. To perform a controlled shot you have to press the shot button right before your swing, holding the button down does a power shot. There is normal, power, and precise serves also, which are performed by either pressing or holding the shot button. The realism is there and the game feels exactly as a tennis game should. Every shot, every reach, every serve and volley feel right. Top Spin 4 has great gameplay and great controls.
The visual side of Top Spin 4 is nice and clean; the pro players look and move like you’d expect them to. Its nice seeing pros such as Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Serena Williams or one of the other 25 pros come to life on screen. The courts look impressive, with subtle things like footprints leaving tracks on clay courts, the tearing up of grass, and the way the ball bounces on carpet. The crowd isn’t very life like, but too be honest it’s not about them. There are 40 courts each with distinct looks to them. The environments all look nice for a tennis title. All in all the game looks great, and is very easy on the eyes.
On the audio side of things Top Spin 4 does a decent job gathering all of what is to be expected in tennis. You’ll hear the PA system calling out the score, the crowd clapping at impressive plays, the grunts of the players and the sound of feet running around the court. The sounds of the balls hitting the courts, and rackets sound great. My only problem I have with the audio is the music; there are only about 5 or 6 songs in the game. Some fit with the feel, and others don’t. One song in particular easily gets stuck in your head, and isn’t something you want to be humming during a match. Overall the audio is great though.
Top Spin 4 has made a lot of great improvements over 3 and is quite honestly the best tennis game out right now. With Virtua Tennis 4 a few months from release, Top Spin 4 is the no brainer as the Tennis game to own. Great career, great gameplay, a good amount of game modes and an online component worth your time, Top Spin 4 is the most solid it’s ever been.
Bottom Line: Buy It

Terminal Reality and Activision have released the launch trailer for the new Walking Dead FPS coming out tomorrow. Check it out!
I've already gotten a chance to play this game and it's honestly awful. The only thing good about this game is the voice acting and the theme song from the TV show. It's truly unfortunate.
Are you a fan of the Walking Dead? Did you play the arcade game by TellTale? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

An article from Australia's Sunday Herald revealed that The Penguin will be the latest addition to Batman: Arkham City. Oswald Cobblepot is a villain to be feared. You don't mess with a Penguin. Check it out!
Rocksteady's Dax Ginn explained that the studio will put a different spin on The Penguin "The way that Penguin has always been portrayed is as quite an aristocratic, well-spoken gentleman who's got these twisted delusions of grandeur" said Ginn. "So we've made him a really horrible, nasty piece of work - but still with the delusion of grandeur. He dresses well, but in a poor taste, and we've made him this brutish, brutal guy but also keyed into the collection fascination that he's had through out the years."
"Penguin's faction is much more about the collection that he has within his museum of all sorts of things but one of those things he collects is heavily artillery," said Ginn. "So when you come up against his thugs in the street they are all going to have seriously heavy weapons and that develops throughout the game as well."
Ginn also went on to describe Catwoman "The attitude of this Selena Kyle is closer to that of the late, great Eartha Kitt from the cult 60s TV show: strong, confident, sexy and independent."
I can't wait for this game, which drops Oct 18 this year. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Gears of War's Executive Producer, Rod Fergusson, has promised another XP marathon if General RAAM is able to topple Half Life 2's Dr. Breen in Gamespot's 'All Time Greatest Game Villain Feature,'
Found this over at http://www.xbox360achievements.org
here is a copy and paste of the article:
The EP tweeted the following yesterday, "Ouch 1800 votes down... Never mind %, 30x XP if RAAM wins." At the time of publishing, RAAM is down by about 1,300 votes and he's hoping this latest incentive will get Gears fans - and those wanting their 'wings' - to vote in their thousands. The semi-finals are set to start on Tuesday, so consider this your final heads-up. It should be a tight finish. Fingers crossed ladies and gents, fingers crossed. Head on over to vote now
Don't be a Jimmy! You know you want that 30xp for Gears 2. Vote up Raam so we can all get out wings!
