Fifteen Minutes Of Marvel vs Capcom 3 Footage From Game Informer

The Salty Runback : January Power Rankings

Photo courtesy of SteveHwang.comSo, after reading the title, I'm assuming the first question on your mind is, "What are Power Rankings?" Simply put, the Power Rankings are me taking the players in NorCal, looking over their performance in the month's tournaments, and then ranking them according to success or impact (or both). Every month, the line-up will change, as players stumble or succeed.

Before we get into that, however, I wanted to take a minute to give my personal take on the IPW Topic of the Week. You're already aware that IPW streamed West Coast Warzone. Technical issues, like angry pimples, arose unexpectedly. Some of the problems were severe enough to force down time, some of that outage occuring with markedly unfortunate timing.

The result, of course, was a legion of stream monsters armed with pitchforks and torches.

IPW TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Go to West Coast Warzone, Get Blown Up

Holy shit. What a weekend.

I just rolled in from SoCal safe and sound, back here in NorCal so I've had a lot of time to think about this weekend and everything that went oh so wrong, and everything that went so damn well. West Coast Warzone was a roller coaster of emotions from the stream, the matches, and everything else in between.

First off, I want to give a huge thanks to all of our supporters who have been with us since the start and those new to iPlayWinner. Reading the comments across the internet it's amazing to see how much you guys back us up even in our darkest hour to date. You guys know we give 110% everytime, and I'm so happy that so many of you see and understand that.

Now, next, I want to give a run down of the weekend and the issues we ran into to give everyone a clear picture of what happened.

TRANSLATED CHANGELIST FOR KOF98UM: FINAL EDITION

The latest issue of Arcadia features a changelist for each returning character in The King of Fighters 98 Ultimate Match Final Edition, which is set to hit Japanese arcades this Winter using Taito's NESICA Live service. KOF98UMFE is an update to 2008's The King of Fighters 98 Ultimate Match, which added new characters to the roster of the original KOF98 (including the 96 Boss Team) as well as the new Ultimate mode, which allowed players to mix and match subsystems from the traditional Advanced and Extra modes from KOF98.

Thanks to BurningKyo at SRK for the translation!

Marvel VS Capcom 3 combo video

I've done a mashup of all the cool moments and combos from my time so far with Marvel VS Capcom 3. Combos done by myself, Shin Dragon, Sho Dragon and others. This will be the last video for me for a little while, maybe until the final characters have been announced. After that, I should hopefully have some more videos breaking down characters going up.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: SRK's Keits Shows Off Dante's Moves

Seth Killian told website GamingUnion back in August that Dante would have the highest number of moves of any Capcom character to date, and it looks like he wasn't kidding around. Crosscounter TV uploaded a video to their YouTube channel with Shoryuken.com's Keits showing off Dante's myriad of moves in action, as well as an added bonus of getting to see some Wolverine and Spider-Man shenanigans at the end of the video. Check it out after the break.

Updated on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 7:47AM by Registered CommenterKumo

YouTube user GamingNinja2 has uploaded a trio of matches from the recent Capcom Fight Club event from across the pond in Birmingham, UK for your viewing pleasure. It appears to be the same build on display at CES, meaning no Haggar or Phoenix. Still, it's worth checking out if you need your fix of Marvel vs Capcom 3 for the day. I know I did.

Ryan Hunter from Option-Select.com has released another awesome video demonstrating various Akuma mixups you can pull off after an untechable knockdown. What makes this video special (beyond the obvious) is that all of the content comes from the mind of Mr. Murderface himself, Tokido! Ryan stated on the site that it's possible Tokido could do more of these videos, so be sure to leave a comment over at this link if you're interested in seeing more. Check out the video in all its glory after the break.

The Salty Runback : The Arcade Edition... Edition?

I've had opportunity to punch the clock with Arcade Edition. Those of you living in Nebraska might expect me to say I've walked away mind blown, spent and gratified. Quick to the disappointment, this is Super Street Fighter 4. Anyone expecting the profile of additions on feature between Vanilla and Super will be sad. Aficionados, though, are going to find a lot to be excited about. At the very least, it should tide over those of us in California until Marvel. Sorry, red states! I know it's unfair, you get Sarah Palin and intelligent design museums, we get sunny weather and Arcade Infinity.

Not to reek too strongly of fanboy, but Arcade Edition is an impressive feat. Under the hood, things look almost identical to the console version of the game, but the subtle tweaks and tune-ups cause impressive shifts in the meta game. By simply changing the dynamic of specific match-ups, or lowering the effectiveness of a maneuver or two, the landscape as a whole is altered. Instead of pulling an ArkSys and machine-gunning over-compensating buffs and nerfs, characters are adjusted so as to still be playable.

Mortal Kombat: Rebirth Will Be a Web Series

Remember that trailer for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth that popped up on YouTube back in June? It was reported that it was just a pitch to Warner Bros. to get a film made, but it was never really confirmed one way or another. According to a report by website Bloody Disgusting, it looks like something will come of it after all: a 10-part web series.

Mortal Kombat - Environment Bio #03 - The Dead Pool 

It's Fatality Friday again, and it's time for another Mortal Kombat video!  This one is a stage bio of the Dead Pool, another classic stage from the series' past! 

Usually I'd say that background info on a stage in a fighting game is a waste of time, but the ones that are put together for Mortal Kombat are actually really well done and the tidbits of background info do add to the game IMO.  Even if you care nothing for backstory, this short vid is worth a look for some gameplay footage and a good look at the stage's details.
