As many of you may have heard, XBOX Live has been wildin' out lately when it comes to downloading the alternate costume packs for Super Street Fighter 4. Capcom-Unity just posted a notice that all issues have been resolved and all the costume packs are now available to download.
The World Cyber Games is gearing up for 2011 and is asking you which games you want to see next year! From the list you can choose from Tekken 6, Super Street Fighter 4, Marvel vs Capcom 3 and uh, some other games I've never heard of. They also have an "other" section where you can pop in a game not listed -- I chose King of Fighters XIII and you should too.
All you raffle monsters out there, get ready to step your game up, because Capcom-Unity just announced they will be securing some slots for a few lucky players to fight against Daigo Umehara online! This Friday, if chosen from the raffle, you will be guaranteed to test your might versus the Beast. On top of that, they are reserving some special prizes for anyone who happens to defeat him!
Some new stuff featuring BLG Juicebox Abel surfaced over the past few days here. He put up a new Juicy Bits podcast which goes over defensive options in a number of different situations, so definitely worth a listen if you feel you get mauled all too often.
GamerDailyNews also caught up with him recently with a text interview, asking him questions ranging from how he got into the tournament scene to tournament level gameplay strategy. Check out a quick chunk of the interview below, and read the rest by clicking here.

SNK Playmore uploaded a ton of new combo videos for Ryo, Takuma, Leona and many more to their YouTube Channel yesterday. Personally, I think Takuma looks bad-ass and can't wait to play him!
Keep in mind this game is slated for consoles sometime in 2011, but a few arcades around the country are already carrying the game. You can find the locations of these arcades on DreamCancel.com. Full videos after the break!
Inspired by LiangHuBBB's series of SSF4 funny and cool moments, Spot A Train just released a series of his own, taking from numerous X360 online replays.

Did a dingo eat your baby while in the land down under? Well if it did, take your rage out at Shadowloo Showdown 2010!
Our friends over at Shadowloo.com have invited Gamerbee and Mago to show that Australia is no joke when it comes to fighting games.
Featured games will be Super Street Fighter 4, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Virtue Fighter 5, Street Fighter III: Third Strike, and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.
Instead of playing on console for Street Fighter III: Third Strike and Tekken 6, these games will be played on a arcade cabinet.
The event will be held December 11-12th at the Rydges Hotel in Melbourne, Australia.
This will be Shadowloo's first event and they are making sure they are going BIG! If you live in Australia or anywhere near it, I highly suggest you attend this event!
Still not sold on the new Ultra Beauty Pack that was released yesterday? If that's the case, you might want to check out this video below put together by C5ONUTUBE that showcases all the new alternate outfits for the ladies in action. Of course, like the previous batch of alternates, they always look better in motion than they do in still images! Check out the full video below.
Arcade Infinity uploaded more gorgeous HD King of Fighters XIII videos, featuring the Grand Finals from a somewhat recent tournament between Reynalds and Mr. KOF. Keep in mind, if you're new to KOFXIII, these videos have English commentary which breaks down some of the set ups and combos the players are doing which obviously helps a lot. Check out the two videos below!
Our homies over at TeamSpooky just uploaded the best of the best from the Canada Cup! If you missed the live stream, know that this tournament had a ridiculous amount of hype matches between players from all over the world. I was glued to the live stream all weekend and honestly it's hard for me to decide which is my favorite, and I'm sure you'll feel the same.
The latest update to the IPW Super Street Fighter 4 Guide is here! We're going to push harder on adding to the guide. We want to add as much as we can in the coming weeks before the end of the year.
One change we've decided to implement into the guide regards the descriptions of Special Moves. The more information we add, the harder it becomes to find specific information. So we've added some graphics and added a space of separation between the basic move description and the info regarding the move's EX version and FADC if applicable. Doing this should make it much easier to find info within the description and helps break up the "wall of text" syndrome. The first character to use this is Balrog, as we basically did a rewrite of his guide anyway.
Got any ideas for what you'd like to see in the guide or want to submit information or tips on videos you think we should direct link to in the guide?
Send any info to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it in the comments! Thanks in advance!
Man, oh man, there has been a ton of news regarding Marvel vs Capcom 3 over the past few days here, not to mention a lot of new media as well. Capcom released the official artwork for Zero, She-Hulk, Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath, and a ton of new screenshots as well. Keep in mind, these screenshots are non-watermarked, making them great for fliers, avatars, or whatever! We also have HD versions of the previously released trailers now live on our YouTube account.
We've uploaded all the screenshots, videos and artwork, which you can check out by clicking the links below. Enjoy!

Well, this is a bit sooner than I think most of us expected, but Capcom announced today that Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be launching February 15th, 2011! They also uploaded the official boxart for that game which you can check out below!
Let's pretend that you haven't played fighting games in a long time, or perhaps you have never played one. You pick one up from the game store and bring it home to see what all the fuss is about. You get into the game for the first time and you stare at the character select. There are so many characters! Which one do you choose and how do you decide?
For this topic of the week we'd like the community's help. Share with us the reasons you decided on the main character in your current favorite fighting game. If you have a set of criteria that you apply to all fighting games you get into, please share.
What we'd like to do is to create an article on this which incorporates the points of view from players presented in this topic, as there is no right or wrong way to select a character. However, with fighting games getting more and more popular there is a whole new generation of gamers out there who are getting into fighting games that are in the situation presented in the opening, and we don't want them to be intimidated and leave. We want them to have fun, stay, and perhaps become part of the community. Giving helpful advice on this could help many players.
So take a minute to share your method. Is it about looks? About moves? Did you decide based on a tier list? Are you a tourney player and that was a consideration? Don't be afraid to be honest! Thanks to everybody who contributes to this week's topic, as we at IPW think it's an important one.
Aris and MYK are at is again with IAmTekken.com's Avoiding The Puddle Podcast. If you have not listend to this podcast before, I suggest you go there and listen to it right now!!!
If you want to listen to something that your mother would never let you listen to something, this is the podcast for you. Avoiding the puddle is one of the most Raw and unforgettable podcasts you can listen to within the fighting game scene.
In these podcasts Aris and MYK sit down and talk about their experiences at the MLG Tournaments for Tekken 6. Aris is also able to catch up with Bronson Tran and ATL_Hoa. There is a lot of good information tossed into these podcasts that make it a must listen, even if your not a fan of Tekken.
Looks like GameStop just confirmed two more characters for the Marvel vs Capcom 3 roster: Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath. Upon first reading this I figured it was an error of some sort, but looking a bit closer at the included image you'll see what appears to be official character artwork.
