SC series Lead Programmer (M.Hoshino) make a wish for a new SC...
There are many of us who wish for it as well! With Twitter being what it is, who knows if this is alluding to anything concrete, but it is good to know that the soul still burns at Namco Bandai. Thanks to Christian H. for the tip!
Eric "Juicebox" Albino is widely recognized in the Super Street Fighter 4 community as among the best Abel players in North America. He has earned himself a professional sponsorship with Borderland Gaming. Not only is he a top player, but he also gives back to the community.
One of those community efforts is a series of podcasts he has recorded in which he shares some of his vast knowledge of the game. One of those is "How to Get Better at Street Fighter". Juicebox and Iplaywinner have transcribed the podcast into a series of articles broken down by topic, where it will be added to a new IPW Player's Guide.

Back to work on Monday and not feeling it? Trust me, I've been there. Nothing better than a Van Damme Street Fighter spoof to brighten up the day, but this isn't from Street Fighter II The Movie. Though the idea is pretty simple, the execution is...perfect! Check it out after the break.
The first public Keystone II event went down just a few weeks ago and was by far and away one of the best events NorCal has seen in a long time. The atmosphere was great with everyone having a ton of fun -- plenty of set ups to play and plenty of booze as well! Can't go wrong there. Check out the full trailer and a ton of photos from the event after the break!
Possible European Boxart for Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection (UPDATE: Includes Demo for Mortal Kombat 2011?)
French website jeuxvideo posted what appears to be the European box art for the still officially unannounced Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Collection.
UPDATE!: The red text on the upper left of the box apparently says, in French, that this game will include a demo for Mortal Kombat 2011! More details inside full article.
The game has a "3D Compatible Game Video" logo on the lower right. We have not heard any news or rumors of an Xbox 360 version of the title, so it appears to be a Playstation 3 exclusive for now.
The cover also confirms that Mortal Komat 1, 2, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 are parts of the compilation.
They also posted a release date of November 18th for 30 Euros (around $40).
EventHubs pointed out what could be the first look at the Marvel vs Capcom 3 box art. This was found on the official Xbox Marketplace website though keep in mind there may not be anything "official" about it. Videogame box art is known to change often before the final release, as many of you may remember this was the case with Street Fighter 4.
Either way, what do you guys think? A good choice for the game or were you hoping for something else? Sound off in the comments and let us know!
Error1 over at Combovid.com put together an awesome list of glitches you can perform in the Street Fighter II series. This list has everything from the Guile Handcuff glitch to the Invisible Dhalsim glitch. One thing he mentions, is that you have to wonder if a number of these glitches are intentional or simply an oversight in programming by Capcom. Either way, this is a worthy read so go check it out!
This is a video segment we spotted over at IMNEXTONLINE, that features a discussion panel with Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon. A lot of the video is about general game design and what not but they do get into some different ideas that are floating around for the Mortal Kombat series. Interesting video through and through -- check it out after the break!
Are you in woe about not being able to play Valkenhayn, Xbox users? Are you glitching out terribly Playstation users? You can get a little peace of mind watching some interesting matches featuring your badass wolf butler, Valkenhayn on The BB Vlog! Interesting use of wolf form and beastly combos are a feast for the eyes! Check out the video after the break!
rKf put together the K-6 series of impressive combo videos for Third Strike focusing mainly on the two combo monsters in the game, Urien and Dudley. That said, a few of the videos have some sick combos for other characters such as Ibuki and Yun. Most of the combos are performed by rKf himself, but there is some help from top Japanese players such as RX. Check out all five videos after the break!
Day 2 qualifiers of GodsGarden Online 2 wrapped up last night and things are starting to shape up for the final six players.

MrDustKicka over at youtube has posted a combo exhibition video. This combo video shows what multiple characters can do with big hitting combos. All combos were done without a tool assist. All these non tool assisted videos still amaze me on how you can sit in the training room and learn all these combos with a little time.

If you were hoping to see Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition at New York: Comic-Con Yoshinori Ono just mentioned that the game will not make an appearance at the event. This shouldn't really surprise anyone, and with it being Comic-Con, you can expect Marvel vs Capcom 3 to steal the spotlight anyway.
The first day of qualifiers for GodsGarden Online 2 wrapped up last night with some really high level, intense matches all around. I was able to catch a lot of it, watching some great sets between players such as Tokido vs Kindevu, but unfortunately couldn't stay up for the whole thing. If you're like me and ended up missing some of the later matches, you should definitely check out the last set between Daigo and Mago. I wont spoil the outcome but I'll say this one really comes down to the wire.
