We all know Yun is powerful but just how strong is he? Check out this guide to Yun's tactics for ruining your life in every way possible.
Making his first appearance in the Street Fighter IV series, Yun joins the lineup for Arcade Edition and it’s balance adjustments. Heavily changing the nature of the game with his remarkable rushdown gameplay, Yun’s moves are quick and powerful, overwhelming unaware opponents with a flurry of attacks and, worse yet, precise, demoralizing psychological warfare.
Yun’s offense is mainly based around being a passive-aggressive jerk who seems cool at first but totally turns out to be a giant douche in a stupid hat. This one time, you and Yun were over at Chun-Li’s place just hanging out and playing Monopoly and he totally flipped out for no reason because he landed on Park Place when you had a bunch of hotels and shit on it. He like, slammed the money on the table all hard and knocked over everyone’s drinks—it was crazy.
Defense is a high priority when fighting Yun no matter what character you choose. If given the opportunity, he will make a game out of ruining your life and employ a wide range of techniques to make you wish you’d never talked to him that day when you met standing in line to get an iPad 2. He was getting three of them to resell on eBay so you should've known he was a jerk then.Read full story...

id Entertainment posted some highlight videos from a tournament that went down recently. The grand finals match featured Poongko and Infiltration. Both players are amazing and Infiltration made top 8 at EVO last year. Check it out.
What did you think of those two? It's very rare to see a Seth like that. Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
For more videos from the tournament go here.
Also if you want a chance to score a free copy of Arcade Edition, you better go check out our Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition & FightStick Giveaway!
Ono announced a patch is forthcoming during a panel at EVO.
Do you feel Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is unbalanced? Much of the fighting community does, and Capcom is listening. Sometime later this year (Seth Killian says "fall or winter") we will see a free patch for AE that will rebalance some of the characters.
No details were given as to what the balancing might be, but we can guess that Yun will be nerfed somewhat.
Ono also asked that people lay off him on the Twitter. You see? You hurt his feelings, so stop it.

Daigo "The Beast" Umehara (Yun) was at the 5 on 5 SSF4 AE TOPANGA Japan Relief Charity Event. He was on Team Topanga with Mago (Fei Long), Tokido (Akuma), Bonchan (Sagat), and Nyanshi (Sagat). Check out the last 3 matches of the Finals. Clutch!
Team Topanga had so many good players that Daigo barely played, I didn't even get to see him play until the Finals. So when Shiro (Makoto) dominated the rest of Team Topanga, I was excited to see the Beast come out. With Daigo as the last hope for the team. Watch his amazing clutch play with Yun.
To check out the rest of this tourney check out Ov3rheadGreg Youtube channel.
We've all been there. A moment in our video gaming careers that has transcended time to this date. A memory where either you accomplished the impossible, defeated the undefeated cocky player, broke a record or came back from the most hopeless situation.
In this video, it shows two great players playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. What I personally like about this video, is the fact it displays the timeless story of how no matter how bleak a moment, how low your health could possibly be, that even with the seeming idea of all hope being lost, one only needs the will to win.

Is Yang just as deadly as his brother in SSFIV? Maybe more? Read to find out.
Joining the Street Fighter IV cast with Arcade Edition, Yang may initially seem like a carbon-copy of Yun but has a number of subtle tweaks that differentiate how players should approach him. Unfortunately for his opponents, however, those differences are not all weaknesses and Yang is often just as dangerous in his own way. In fact, Yang is arguably even more problematic than Yun because at least Yun knows he’s a douche.
Yang tries to act all nice so at first you’re like “Yang’s the good twin” but that’s gone in like two seconds after you get to know him. He has this condescending attitude all the time like he knows some big secret of life that the rest of us are too stupid to get. Like, sure, he did read to kids when they opened the new library, but do you really think he would’ve gone if all those cameras weren’t there? And then he ends up going out with that reporter from Channel 6? Whatever, man. He’s in it for himself.
Your instinct may be to let out a sigh of relief when you see Yang on the “vs.” screen instead of Yun, but do not let your guard down or you will come to regret it.

- Rollerblades? Really?
(3x) or (5x)
Tourou Zan (Mantis Slashes)
A series of quick, repeatable maneuvers with effects that vary depending on how many strikes Yang performs. Yang constantly corrects and contradicts every point you make while you’re having a conversation about the direction of recent Marvel Comics films. While these facts don’t tend to change the validity of your overall point, he still makes sure to point out that Sabretooth was originally an Iron Fist villain rather than Wolverine’s just to subtly establish that he knows more about comic books than you and that his opinion is therefore more valuable.
EX Version: After a minor dispute over the importance of continuity gaffs in X-Men: First Class—which Yang liked, for some reason—Yang points out that the Azazel character was not a “weird Nightcrawler ripoff” but is based an the actual character who was revealed to be Nightcrawler’s father (who impregnated his mother, Mystique). This also allows him to point out that Mystique also had a son with Sabretooth so he has en excuse to bring up the Iron Fist thing again.
Yang’s rushing teleport isn’t as useful as some characters’ due to its relatively slow startup and predictable path of travel. Nevertheless, Yang can use this move to escape from being cornered by an unaware opponent, so keep an eye out for it when facing him. If you tell Yang about a band you like, he goes totally “superfan” and downloads every album, then digs up all these old demos and bootlegs and buys tickets to a concert that’s months away and invites you like you needed him to tell you when your own favorite band is playing. Finally, he finishes by posting one of their videos on Facebook and all his friends act like he was the one who discovered them.
Byakko Soushouda (Palm Strike)
One of Yang’s most important moves both for its offensive capability and usefulness is building meter quickly. While sitting around at a party, Yang somehow manages to find some old guitar buried in the back of a closet and then spends twenty minutes putting on a concert on the back porch. You can stay inside if you want to, but the house isn’t that big so you’ll hear it either way. Besides, everyone else thinks it’s sooooo cool and you’ll look like the jerk if you don’t sit and listen to him fumble his way through half of Rubber Soul.
The light version is a fake strike used to bait anxious opponents. Yang acknowledges that it’s “not his party” and turns down requests to play another song. While this is exactly what you want in theory, it only has the effect of making him seem humble and considerate, all the while building anticipation for the Dylan song he intentionally saved for last because it makes him look all deep and mysterious.
EX Version: While not any more powerful, the EX version’s faster startup makes it fairly useful when Yang has the resources available. Shortly after arriving to the party, Yang steers the conversation towards some new song he likes. This, of course, is just an excuse to plug his iPod into the stereo and eventually take over the music entirely with his own playlist, once again making himself the center of attention.
Senkyuutai (Dragon Kicks)
Yang’s uppercut-style move works as a reversal, but it’s forward mobility also gives it the ability to punish projectiles better than most. Okay, so like, whenever you like something that Yang doesn’t like or doesn’t really know about, he does that thing were he finds some reason to turn it into a morality issue that you can’t argue with. The other day, Fei Long was like “ I finally saw Hangover 2, it was pretty funny” and Yang goes “I didn’t see the first one because of Mike Tyson’s involvement—I can’t support a rapist.” Look, obviously no one’s saying rape is cool, he was just talking about a movie that he liked and Tysons’s not even in it that much.
EX Version: Upon hearing you complain about some aspect of your day, Yang dismisses your complaints, insisting that pickles on your sandwich can’t compare to the atrocities that people have to face in Darfur every day. Sometimes it seems like Yang doesn’t even really know anything about Darfur, but you don’t either so you can’t really challenge him on any of it.
Zenpou Tenshin (Flip Grab)
Yang’s command throw does no damage and is highly punishable on whiff, but in return, leaves him in a good position with enough frame advantage to land any number of big combos. Yang suddenly decides one day that he’s a stand-up comedian and sends out a Facebook invite for everyone to come watch him do an open mic at some hipster coffee shop. Yang’s material is all just rant-y political stuff that doesn’t have a real point, but his friends (who now outnumber the normal patrons) clap and cheer anyway because they’re just happy to see their friend on stage. They also all leave in a group after his set, showing no respect to the other performers.
EX Version: Yang schedules his next show on the same night as the play you’re in at the community theatre, claiming to have forgotten about your event. When faced with the option, most of your friends choose to go to Yang’s thing since you’re “really just an extra” and won’t be in much of the actual performance. It’s true that you aren’t heavily featured, but you were an understudy for the lead and worked really hard so you’re proud of it anyway, not that anyone will even know now.
Super and Ultra Moves:
Similar to the infamous Genei Jin, Yang enters an enhanced state for a limited time that super-charges his normal moves and combos. There are a variety of ways to implement this attack, but in the most commonly used version, Yang shows up late with some excuse about his job when you were supposed to go see Transformers 3, meaning that you can’t get good seats for the whole group and have to go see Tree of Life instead (which, conveniently, Yang had been talking about seeing for weeks).
Ultra I – 480
Yang starts a f#@*ing podcast. Seriously. Yeah, he talked about it all the time but it just sounded like more of his “big talk.” Well, he goes out and buys all the equipment and next thing you know, he’s putting links up on his Twitter to download the first episode. Everyone talks about how great it is but you can tell none of them even listened to it because all he does—with co-host Rock Howard and special guest Seung Mina—is talk shit about everyone you know. Fine, he doesn’t use anyone’s real name, but anyone who knows him would know exactly who he’s talking about and some of it gets kinda personal. Besides, everyone knows you were planning to start a podcast months ago.
Ultra II – 440
After having lived there for well over eight months, Yang finally invites everyone to his condo for a get together that he calls a “housewarming” in order to imply that you should bring a gift. This is all the more annoying when, while taking “the tour,” it quickly becomes apparent that Yang already owns everything: designer furniture, fancy kitchen gadgets, high-end electronics, books, art—the works. While you recognize that the entire thing is an obvious excuse for Yang to be all “look how awesome I am,” Yang’s success still stings given that you went to the same school and he didn’t even work as hard. For a split-second, you wonder if Yang really is better than you and the nagging doubt haunts you for the rest of your days.

[UPDATE] This is what I get for being sick during EVO. Development has started. It's just a DLC update, could you imagine another disc? Fans would riot. Unless there is 10 new stage, at least 4 news fighters and maybe some new modes. Ha! I'm dreaming.
I don't know if this is even real. Ono likes to troll us sometimes. Maybe this is the update and the balancing that will carry Street Fighter IV until Street Fighter 5 comes out. EVO showed me that there is plenty of characters to use, you just need to be good. EVO good. Here's the pic.
Here's the tweet
Woooo,we're developing AE 2012 just now! ;) We'll do our best to live up to your expectations! ;D
Well that's it. What are your thoughts. I'm pretty sure you don't want to pay for this right? Considering some of us have paid for 3 versions of Street Fighter IV at this point.
You should follow Ono san if you don't already. There's tons of sneaky stuff like this and of course Ono san always posts pictures of girls and booth babes from around the world. Don't be a Jimmy!
