It’s been 26 years since Street Fighter II: The World Warrior originally launched, but one player – going by the name Desk – has managed to find some new combos in the game.
Desk takes the game’s Vega restand glitch to a new level. He’s basically discovered that you can continue to hit Vega (Claw) when he has been knocked down by a sweep. The glitch itself isn’t new, but Desk found an original way of working with it and pushed its limits.
Here’s a look:

Atlus has just gone live with a teaser site for what looks to be a new Radiant Historia game. Access it here.
Obviously the URL is pointing to the site being related to Radiant Historia. Other than that, a message reads: “In the near future, a history once told will unfold again. And an unknown path will come to be known.” More information will be shared in this week’s Famitsu.
While we’re generally against posting news without platforms having been confirmed, many of you know that Radiant Historia was a DS game. Hopefully Atlus will bring whatever this is to Nintendo platforms – be it Switch and / or 3DS.

Pokemon developer Game Freak is currently searching for a motion modeler. The company is trying to find someone who has experience making models on the level of Wii U and PlayStation Vita, and experience with the computer program Maya is required.
Game Freak cites the following as bonuses:

– Experience in producing deformed characters
– Experience in producing monster models
The modeler will be asked to work on creating character models for an unspecified consumer game development project.

The position with Game Freak is on a contract basis and can lead up until May 2018.
Before Switch was announced, rumors persisted of a third Pokemon entry to accompany Pokemon Sun/Moon on Nintendo’s system. No announcement has been made, but if it exists, perhaps this job listing could be related.

Nintendo has officially filed for a trademark for the previously Japan exclusive Miitopia game, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Fan modifies Amazon Echo to respond to Zelda songs played via ocarina
Posted on 3 months ago by Zack in General Nintendo | 6 Comments | 0 Likes
In an impressive display of both technical knowledge and creativity, YouTuber Allen Pan has modified an Amazon Echo to recognize and respond to songs from The Legend of Zelda played on an ocarina as opposed to just voice commands.
While this would be impressive on it’s own, Allen Pan has gone ahead and connected some frequently used devices in his house to the Amazon Echo and attached an appropriate song for each device. For example, playing the Bolero of Fire from Ocarina of time will turn on his heater; the Song of Storms will activate his humidifier and the Song of Healing from Majora’s Mask will reset all connected devices to their previous state, effectively working as an off switch for his entire house.
This impressive display of technical know-how is certainly one of the more unique and creative approaches to Zelda fandom. Check out the entire video below.
