Coopa and myself had a chance to talk with SNK Playmore's Director of US Relations, Shinya Morishita. Kennyon helped us out a bit by translating the questions and answers back and forth, so big shout outs to him. A few of the questions seemed to get lost in translation, but there is some good info in this interview for sure.

I recorded a few really good matches from the King of Fighters XIII tournament held at SCR. Unfortunately, I don't know the players names too well, but both these matches are really entertaining. I had a chance to sit down the game for a bit and I have to say it's really fun to play, even though I didn't really know what I was doing. That said, after watching a ton of matches from Mr. KOF and others, I can't wait to spend some time with the game and figure out some of the more high level tactics these guys were pulling out.
Tokido really stole the show when it came to Super Street Fighter 4 this weekend. From the moment I heard he signed up as "Tokido the Murder Face" to when space and time came to a complete halt as he busted out the Akuma pose. Top that off with all of his amazing matches versus top players from around the world, all I can say is I love how this guy not only plays the game but his general attitude towards tournaments as well.
Since SCR, a ton of media of this guy has surfaced all over the internet. Below you'll find photos, videos and interviews of Tokido all in one place. Enjoy!
I ended up recording a ton of Marvel vs Capcom 3 footage at SCR, and was lucky enough to have people around who actually knew how to play the game such as Marn and Kurasa. Obviously not everyone knows what to do in MVC3 yet, so I've filtered out the "button check" matches and am leaving you with only the best of the best.
Azrael and Street11 posted up some translations from the latest Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition Development Blog. This time the blog goes into changes Chun-Li, El Fuerte, Sakura and Cody with Chun getting arguably the most nerfs, though Fuerte is in a close second. Cody gets a nice buff with a 3 frame crouching short -- might have to play him seriously again! Read about all the other changes below.
Justin decides on the last match that he will use one button and a random select character to take out the XBOX live monster. He can't focus attack, grab. just use that one button.

Street Fighter 4 brings together 2D gameplay and 3D graphics. Whatever your view on the game as it turned out, nobody can debate either its success or the tremendous impact it had on the fighting game community and on the genre.
But what if Street Fighter 4 had 2D graphics instead of 3D? Would that have made a difference in the game's sales or its impact? Would the game, either in play mechanics and/or in graphical presentation, have to be modified to maximize its potential?
Keep in mind that the genre was on life support before this game released, and even Capcom considered Street Fighter 4 a gamble. For purposes of this topic, assume that Capcom allotted all the artists and resources necessary to take one, last daring stab at making a modern glorious 2D title.
Have fun, 2D fans! No the game would not look like the SF4 characters brought to Third Strike mock-ups shown on left (which are awesome tho!). Today's machines are capabable of incredible 2D. Go wild!

Last night Tekken producer Harada released some new footage of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 at MLG Dallas. The video showcases how the assists will work and also confirms Armor King, King, Paul and Law playable in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
A lot of the combos showcased within the video shows how amazing the game play will be. Seeing the assist partner flying in the air after a throw just makes the game even more hype and I personally can't wait.

NorCal's very own Vangief is now signed to Borderland Gaming. Vance "VanGief" Wu will be the third Street Fighter 4 player to join the BLG Crew along with Eric 'Juicebox' Albino and Ryan 'Filipino Champ' Ramirez.
Vance is one of the top Zangief players in North America. With many tournaments under his belt, I think he will make a great addition to the BLG line up. One of Vance's biggest win is placing top 8 in EVO 2010 and receiving the infamous Golden TE stick.

This part of the episode they go over game mechanics, tweaks still being made, game play questions, and what people are saying on the forums.
