image courtesy of Mad CatzA ferocious competitor within the game, the man known as "The Beast" has shown his caring and generosity by offering the money he earned at Capcom Cup to the Evo Scholarship.

In a letter written to Shoryuken, the Mad Catz-sponsored legend explained that he owed the experiences of his "professional gamer" life to the community and that he wanted to give something back to the FGC. "Just as you need an opponent in fighting game, the community is equally important to me," Daigo said, also adding that he hopes the money donated will "help the community thrive further."

Daigo's donation will add roughly $60,000 to the Evo Scholarship fund, which is used to help community members receive an education in game development at the NYU Gamer Center. The Center said in a statement that Daigo's gift "indicates that the qualities that make him such a great competitor extend far beyond the game," and that "having a heart big enough to donate all of his winnings is actually an indication of what it takes to win in the first place."

With such a large influx of funds, NYU has moved the application date for the 2016 scholarship back to January 15, 2016. For the complete statements by Daigo and the NYU Game Center, head over to Shoryuken.

Legality on Brook Accessory's Super Converters to be Announced at January 2016 Evo Reveal

Brook Super Converter: Xbox 360/Xbox One to PlayStation 4Evo organizer Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar is in deliberation on whether or not a new set of converters will be allowed at the biggest fighting game tournament in the world.

Mr. Wizard will announce in January 2016 if the Super Converters by Brook Accessory are allowed for use at Evo 2016. Back in November, Mr. Wizard released pictures (1, 2) on Twitter where he tested some of the converters for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In a recent tweet, Mr. Wizard said the converters might need "another month of testing."

These converters require no authentication for use. Models that allow PS4 compatibility disable the eight-minute timeout issue.

You can find more information about the converters at Brook's official page and the Shoryuken Tech Talk thread. They are currently available now in stores such as Arcade Shock and Focus Attack.

Video: Guilty Gear Xrd Sin Corner Cross-up Setup

Sin players have found different variations of a setup that allows the character to use jumping heavy slash to cross up opposing characters that have been thrown into the corner.

Not only does the setup offer Sin safe jump pressure and a big damage payoff if it hits, the resulting combo leaves him able to cancel into his Voltic Deign super for more pressure as the opposing character gets off the ground.
