Super Street Fighter 4: Street Fighter is Hard #12 - Cody

Street Fighter is Hard is a video series chronicling one man's humorous quest to get the "C to Shining C" achievement/trophy, which in case you don't know or can't recall requires that you level up every character in the game to a C-Rank in Ranked Match.  This episode is Cody's turn.

It's fun to watch and has some fabulous editing, as well as a few chuckles for good measure.  Take a look, and if you want to see previous episodes in the series be sure to head over to DrGamez's youtube channel.

MvC3: How to Crash MvC3, aka 'The Glitch of Doom' by Desk

Desk posted a video earlier today titled "How to crash MvC3, aka 'the glitch of Doom'", and in it he shows off a pretty.. well, pretty insane glitch that allows for Doom to stack Hidden Missiles infinitely if timed correctly.

The result, depending on how many you stack, can either slow the game to a crawl or cause it to lock up completely. This isn't something we'll likely be seeing performed online, but it's still bizarre to see. Check it out for yourself below.

iPW Guest Article: SSF4: AE Yang Breakdown by ROM (Part One)

With AE set to be released on consoles relatively soon, I’ve decided to write up a relatively detailed breakdown of the only character I care to play – Yang. You may know me as ROM, and I play Yang. I've been playing the character since I started learning Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, and have since transferred my experience and knowledge of the character in that version to this game. I've had extensive playtime with this character and want to share my knowledge with those willing to learn.

New Street Fighter X Tekken Screenshots (Vs Screen Included)

A handful of new Street Fighter X Tekken screenshots have been released by Capcom Japan. There are no new characters or stages on display but that doesn't stop the game from looking great!  We do, however, have the first screenshot of the "vs" screen.  I really like the style they went with it.

IPW Topic of the Week: Is the Fighting Game Genre In Danger of Over-Saturation?

Regardless of what you personally think of the game, you have to give Street Fighter 4 the credit it is due.  The fighting game genre was on life support for years, and with it's success came a whole new wave of enthusiasm for the genre from publishers and developers.

Now we have a ton of fighting games.  This year we have Marvel vs Capcom 3 already released and Mortal Kombat is days away.  In the pipeline we have Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition (DLC and Retail), Street Fighter 3: Online Edition (DLC) , King of Fighters XIII, BlazBlue: CS2, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Skullgirls (DLC), Street Fighter X Tekken, Tekken X Street Fighter, and who knows what else will be announced.

This is great for the fighting game fan, but do you think that the market is in danger of over-saturation?  Are there any parallels between what is happening now and the decline of the genre in the late '90s and early '00s? Does the fact that some of these games are being updated via DLC change the equation? Are you getting tired of these games or are you in heaven? Discuss in the comments!

Note: To see a pretty cool graphic timeline (shown partially above) of the genre's history from Kotaku, click here.
