"Combos" isn't a word that ever really crosses my mind when considering Dhalsim, but this new combo video by DaDoppen just changed all that. This video covers a wide range of goofy combos and set-ups for a character typically known for single, long range attacks. A must see for sure!
The console release of Street Fighter 4 in 2009 completely revitalized a genre that has been stagnant for years. Since then, sequels for major franchises are regular, new franchises have begun, and a few have found new life as downloadable games.
So, for this week's topic, let's have some fun. Is there a fighting game from the past that you would love to see brought back today?
Also, how would you like to see it revived? Would you like to see a complete makeover like Super SF2 Turbo HD Remix or perhaps even completely 3D graphics engine? What modes would you add? Change the gameplay/balance or remain faithful? Retail or downloadable game? Pretend you are developer and publisher.

NORCAL REGIONALS IS THIS WEEKEND!
Yo guys! Just a quick update that NCR8 begins THIS WEEKEND! We'll be streaming all the action live from our USTREAM Channel so be sure to tune in. We have some things planned for the stream that will blow your mind -- I just hope the internet works! Hah!
We'll be doing some tests tonight, and possibly streaming the SSF4 qualifiers for the NorCal vs SoCal 5v5 so keep an eye out for that. Keep in mind, we will be testing through out the night so we may go on and off the air from time to time. Saturday around 9am PST we should be live, streaming Tekken 6 and SSF4 around noon.
I've posted a tentative schedule for the event below which will give you a general idea when things are going down. Follow us on Twitter or F5 this page through out the weekend to stay up to date!
Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma was a guest on Gamespot's "Today On the Spot" show.
They talked about the design process of incorporating Wesker, Tron Bonne, Spider-Man, and X-23 into the game. Also, interestingly, Ryota stated that not only will they be looking into bringing more characters into the game via downloadable content, but they are also other elements that they are looking at offering and adding to the game via DLC.
What woud you like to see as DLC besides characters? Marvel vs Capcom 3 segment begins around 5:48.
Cross Counter with Gootecks and Mike Ross is back with a new episode! They open the show talking about their trip to Calgary for Canada Cup 2010. They had nothing but great things to say about Calgary and about JSMaster, who they consider to be the MVP of this tournament. The match they are analyzing for this episode is the JSMaster vs Mago match from the tournament.
Check out the show after the jump!
LevelUp posted another nice batch of videos from SCR, this time showcasing some matches from the SoCal vs NorCal 5v5 that went down. They also uploaded some more matches from SSF4 pools, including one of my favorites, EG. Marn vs EG. Ricky Ortiz which I've embedded below. You can find the rest of the videos on their YouTube Channel.
Today Capcom Unity is pitting Daigo against a sea of players on both XBOX Live and PSN. Lamerboi, for whatever reason, was chosen and had a chance to redeem himself from his loss against the Beast at EVO2K10. I watched this match live and from the start I knew Lamerboi was trolling, but I had no idea how diabolical his plans really were. Check out the video after the break!
The opening movie for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 has made its way online courtesy of jourdal. For those who don't know, CS2 is the name given to the latest update of the arcade version which features balance changes as well as the characters which are being made available via downloadable content on the home version.
Capcom-Unity posted up some cool new information on how you and your opponents stats will be tracked in Marvel vs Capcom 3's online modes. Capcom is calling them License Cards and they appear to be a huge improvement over the current system Battle Point system found in Super Street Fighter 4.
Mad Catz is having a sale on Arcade Sticks, while Brokentier and Triumvir are having specials on their clothing line.
Find Out The Promo Codes after the Break!
The fine folks at Level|Up have uploaded more match footage from Socal Regionals 2010, this time for Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. It's incredibly exciting to watch Third Strike matches, especially with the amazing players that were present at the event.
For your viewing pleasure we have embedded the grand finals between Tokido and ROM. If you are hungry for more Third Strike action, more videos have been uploaded to Level|Up's youtube channel.
Brad Crawford and his team recently attended the Canada Cup and put together a new trailer for their upcoming documentary, 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience. Of course, as the title states, you'll see a short interview with Daigo Umehara and even a few words on The Beast by one of North America's top Honda players. Hmm, who could that be?
Angry Bananas caught up with Seth Killian during SCR and asked him a few questions about both Super Street Fighter 4 and Marvel vs Capcom 3. A few key points he mentions is that there is most likely more changes to each character in the Arcade Edition of Super Street fighter 4 that aren't necessarily mentioned on the development blog. He also says the X-Factor ability found in Marvel vs Capcom 3 -- a technique that can only be used once, but powers up your character significantly -- won't see too many changes, if any, from it's current state in the final build.
Those of you unfamiliar with FilthieRich, know that he has been the hype-man for Tekken for quite sometime now. Not only has he been an excellent director for Tekken on MLG circuit, he's done a great job of reaching out to other fighting game communities to help spread the word about NAMCO's flagship fighter. I know this first hand as I've worked with him directly here in NorCal a number of different times.
AnimatronicAckbar has just released his new trailer, Street Fighter: Beyond the Game.
In this trailer AnimatronicAkbar interviews many street fighter players on why they play street fighter, how did you come up with the stick art idea, and why they have a love for street fighter. There is also a ton of footage from this years EVO 2010.
Check out the Trailer After the Break!

ARC System Works uploaded a new trailer today for Arcana Heart 3 and I'm not going to say this isn't safe for work, but don't be surprised if your co-workers start giving you funny looks if they catch you watching this. Yeah, you probably see where this is going.
