YogaFlame24 and MrDustKicka just released another "Magic of" video, this time featuring PeacefulJay's Latif! I'm sure many of you are familiar with PJS Latif by now, as there are a ton of videos of him dominating all over the place. This video, like the other Magic of videos puts all of his highlights into one place so be sure to check it out, especially if you're an aspiring C. Viper player!
Those of you fiending for some top level SSF4 play to sink your teeth into, you're in luck today! Sp00ky went ahead and uploaded the entire top 16 matches from Final Round XIV, which ended up being far more entertaining than many recent SSF4 tournaments lately. If you didn't catch it on the stream or want to re-watch the epic battle between PR Rog and Tokido, be sure to check these out.

WorstGiefEver is in the process of uploading direct feed France vs The Rest of the World SSF4 matches from Bushido Impact that took place in December. This was an epic 10 v 10 exhibition that ended up having some really insane matches. You might have seen the cam footage from a while back, but WorstGiefEver has done a bang up job, splicing in the player and crowd reactions with the direct feed footage. Check out the videos and more details below!
Sam Tran sent over this great video for Dr. Doom a little earlier, put together by KS Shogun which goes over both basic and advanced combos. Doom is one of those characters where players seem to only use him for his assists -- much like Sentinel --- but don't seem to know hot to play him very well when he is out there on his own. If you're one of those types, definitely check out this video to step up your Dr. Doom game!
This combo video features a variety of characters doing big damage combos. Many of these use a ton of meter, but if you play some of the characters featured you may get an idea or two that you can use in your own game. If you don't, it's still entertaining to watch!

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada released the English version of the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 trailer we saw last month out of AOU earlier this morning on his Facebook page. If the original AOU trailer left you wondering just what in the world the announcer was so excited about, this video should fill you in.
Several months after Oni and Evil Ryu were leaked across several American arcades, Capcom revealed to Famitsu that Evil Ryu will be making his official debut in arcades starting March 25. According to 1UP's report, Oni won't be releasing day-and-date with Evil Ryu, instead being released "a bit later on." Here's an excerpt from the story over on 1UP:
GameSpot just released the first official gameplay trailer of Kratos that we've seen so far -- aside from the brief bit of cam footage we saw yesterday, of course. The video runs for a little over a minute and actually gives us a pretty good feel for how Kratos will play. Interestingly, NetherRealm even decided to include at least one quick time event for Kratos just to remind you that he was, in fact, from God of War. You know, in case you forgot.

Tokido has been in Houston the past few days playing Arcade Edition casuals at Planet Zero Arcade with some of Houston's SSF4 players (including Four Wude, Kensou, Ex Jermaine and myself). He also attended the Texas Showdown Tournament this past weekend, where I was able to get an interview with the Murder Face on his thoughts about MvC3, Yun and Yang, which characters he wants to see in AE, Akuma matchup knowledge and more.
On a side note, Tokido did not participate in the tournament, although he did play the winners in an exhibition set. Check out Haunts' post to see those matches and more.

Hey guys, I wanted to make a quick post to update everyone on the status of our Marvel vs Capcom 3 Strategy Guide. I know many of our long time readers understand that we take our guides here very seriously, with our Super Street Fighter IV Strategy Guide being one of the absolute best on the internet. We are working on an in depth guide for Marvel vs Capcom 3 as well, consulting with some of the best players in the country in the process. Beyond that, the MVC3 guide will have some new interactive features that I'm sure many of you will really enjoy.
Desk just released a quick video that shows many of the changes made in the recent patch to MVC3. Everyone knows about the Sentinel health nerf, but it looks like there are some other changes as well, with Akuma not being able to perform his infinite anymore, and the Spencer glitch being removed as well. Check out all the changes in the video below.

Only a month and some days after release, Capcom has released the first patch with balance tweaks for Marvel vs Capcom 3 along with preparations for the upcoming Event Mode, due out March 25. A whole bunch of players are reporting a number of changes so far, but the only thing that's been confirmed is that Sentinel's health took a rather large hit. To be specific, his health is now in the 905,000 range, down about 395,000 points from the original 1.3 million.
Other reports say that Spencer lost his corner loop, but I wasn't able to confirm at this time. As soon as we hear more about a list of confirmed changes, we'll be sure to let you know -- and if you happen to find anything, be sure to let us know by sending us a tip or leaving a comment!
Maximilian Dood is back with another episode of The Online Warrior! If you haven't seen the first episode and aren't familiar with it, Max shows some of his online match replays while he gives commentary and very useful advice along the way. In part one of this episode for instance he stumbles upon a rather useful wavedashing trick that can be used against some characters who try to roll away on wakeup.
So check out parts 1 and 2 of Episode 2 within. It's good stuff! Check out VidThru's channel for the previous episode.
Just a couple of weeks ago we had Street Fighter Alpha on the PlayStation Store going for a very reasonable $2.99, and now Capcom is back again with another sale. When the PlayStation Store updates later this evening, Street Fighter Alpha 2 will be on sale for $2.99. This is, of course, the PSX version and not an arcade port.

A new Mortal Kombat trailer has surfaced which features some Kratos gameplay (exclusive character for Playstation 3 verstion), footage of the King of the Hill online mode, and one of Raiden's Fatalities! According to the video's description, this trailer was being shown at a tournament in Bruxells, Belgium.
Anyway, Mortal Kombat is looking hot and the more that is revealed the more excited I am for this game. Here's hoping that NetherRealm Studios put time and care into providing a full-featured online mode...

The team behind the Thanks for Playing documentary put together an interview with a bunch of top NYC players including Noel Brown, IFC Yipes, Jago and Chris Matrix.
