Street Fighter 4 Font

Looking to put together your next tournament flyer or maybe need something to spice up your next forum avatar? You might want to check out this Street Fighter 4 font by ArcJavier who is -- as far as I know -- a player who is part of the Peruvian scene aka The Backyard. The font is really well done but I was hoping for some Street Fighter dingbats to be included! Oh well.

As a side note, Koogy used this font for our Battle of the Bay flyer and you'll see it turned out really nice. 

You can download this font directly from DaFont.

Peacefuljay Saltstream Weekly Review: Online Harassment

Each week our very own Crackfiend will give us an update on the current happenings within the PeacefulJay stream which is one of the most popular streams to date! PeacefulJay's 24/7 Endless Lobby Stream can be found by clicking here. Miss last week's update? Check it out here.

Trash talking. It’s part of competitive culture and should exist to create rivalries, drama, and emotional intensity. But when does trash talking cross the line? When does it become heckling, verbal assault, or harassment?

This topic at hand today is being discussed because of incidents that have not only happened on the Peacefuljay Stream, but on most streaming events that the FGC has provided to the general public. The FGC streams bring positivity and opportunity, but fails to regulate stream chat etiquette in regards to sexual reference, sexual identity, racial slurs, and so forth. G4 briefly talks about this on the EVO2K10 feedback which Haunts posted and you can begin watching it at approximatley the 7-minute mark.

But the streams are not the issue. The issue lies within the readers of this article, the viewers of the streams, and the people who have provided the streams but were unintentionally negligent to the recurring problem.

MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3: FIGHT CLUB - ATLANTA, GA

Capcom-Unity just announced that the next Fight Club will be held in Atlanta, GA on October, 28th! Even though I don't live there anymore, I think this is a great choice as there are a ton of serious fighting game fans in the South East who definitely deserve something like this!

Capcom also mentions they took in the concerns from the previous Fight Club in Chicago and there will be "tighter security, and good ventilation." They haven't released the exact location in Atlanta where this will take place, but keep and eye out for that as they will surely announce it soon.

IPW Topic of the Week: Creating a Better Training Mode

The resurgence of the fighting game genre, led by Street Fighter 4, has brought in a flood of new players.  These players either haven't played a fighting game in a while or are playing one for the very first time.

The instruction booklets that are included with fighting games have always been little more than a broad overview.  It is usually by using in-game Tutorial Modes that players are expected to figure out the game in-depth.  Even with easy control schemes and relaxed inputs, todays' fighting games are still complex and a new player will find the challenge daunting, where it is very easy to give up and go back to Halo.

Are the Training Modes found in today's fighting games enough?  Are there key concepts that Training Modes fail to convey to new players?  Are there any new modes, features, or changes to existing mode structures that you think would better help new players cope?
