Gootecks and Mike Ross put together a new episode of Cross Counter, this time featuring a match between Juicebox Abel and Vangief from the 24/7 PeacefulJay stream. The topic of this episode is "Cracking" and as they mention in the video, pretty much anyone who has lost a match has cracked at some point.
Magneto and MODOK were both revealed at New York Comic-Con for the Marvel side of Marvel vs Capcom 3 today! Magneto is of course one of the most anticipated characters to make the cut, and we've seen some hints of MODOK for a few weeks now.
The hype in this video is unbelievable, but if there was a "hype-meter" present, the needle would have broken off for one of the two characters!
Watch this vid and feel the excitement as if you were there!
Also revealed at New York Comic Con 2010 were some alternate costume variations for Spider-Man! While these aren't new models, just texture swaps, they are still neat to have in the game.
The new ones are Iron Spider, Symbiote Spidey, and the new Spider-Man costume from the upcoming "Big Time" comics by Dan Slott!
Marvel.com was kind enough to post a liveblog which chronicled the highlights from the Marvel vs Capcom 3 Panel at New York Comic Con 2010.
We've taken the time to grab all the pieces of info that we thought were interesting and compiled them here for your viewing pleasure. There's a lot of information here on many aspects of the game, so take a quick glance to see if anything jumps out at you.
Notes after the jump!
Capcom just announced Sir Arthur from Ghosts n' Goblins will make the cut for the Marvel vs Capcom 3 roster! Check out the official character artwork and screenshot! Is this it? Is there even more to be revealed at NYCC!? Stay tuned!

A poster for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition was released on the game's official Capcom website today. If you haven't heard yet, the game is set to release in December, and handful of arcades in North America are even rumored to be picking up the game around that time as well.
So what about all of us waiting for a console update? Yoshinori Ono posted on his Twitter account that he is having another meeting, making the 2nd push for the DLC upgrade. Truthfully, I can't imagine Capcom not going through with something like this.
I'm a Felicia fan, so there's some rare footage of her doing her thing as well. :)

Eurogamer put up a short but sweet interview with Ryota Niitsuma regarding Marvel vs Capcom 3. One part of this interview I love is that he mentions the game differs from Street Fighter IV in that you can just get in there, press buttons and make a combo opposed to thinking about a strategy and launching it like in Street Fighter IV. Too funny.
Here are a few short combo videos for Kula, K' and Maxima from the King of Fighters XIII uploaded by SNK themselves. These videos start of simple enough with a basic combo then they show you where you can take it from there. All three videos after the break!
They're just using XBL for what it is good for: just messing around and having a good time... and they are having a good time! It's pretty fun to watch.
Check it out after the break!
In the past, game developers typically saved new features, characters, and balance changes for a new $50 (or more) stand-alone title. This was out of necessity, as there was no other way to deliver that content to players. If they wanted to update a game, a new game cartridge or CD was required.
Today, with downloadable content a prominent part of the gaming landscape, developers have the option of adding those things to a game that is already on store shelves or in your living room.
So, where do you stand on today's trend of using paid DLC to expand fighting games? Does DLC cost too much for what you are getting? Are the right things being offered? Share your thoughts and opinions!
