Hello everyone this is fABIIO and I am finally back with another video update. I provide you with weekly (at least I try to do it weekly) video updates from my Youtube channel. These consist of games like: GGXX AC, AH3, HnK and on some occasions some other games make it on there. This week I have a set of five Hokuto no Ken videos and some nice AH3 combo videos to go along with the hype of the newly released console port.
Aris over at Avoiding the Puddle put together a great podcast with some of the biggest names in the 3D fighting game world: Katsuhiro Harada (Tekken Director), Michael Murray (Tekken Design Team) and Daishi Odashima (New Director for the Soul Calibur series). Aris asks a lot of hard hitting questions that have been on the minds of many players out there and gets some really interesting responses. Even if you're not a Tekken fan, as always, the Avoiding the Puddle Podcast is well worth your time so check it out when you get the chance.

Alright, so this video has pretty much nothing to do with fighting games except that these two guys happen to play Street Fighter and it's on CrossCounterTV. But you know what? That's a good enough of reason for me to post this because it's so damn funny. Gootecks and Mike Ross engage in an epic dance-off in Kinect Dance Central at CES 2011 and the results may surprise you. Check it out.
Kobayashi sent over a really cool link this morning I wanted to share with everyone. This is a flash based reaction time test centered around Milla's (Guilty Gear) overhead attack, which was created by Teyah on the DustLoop forums. The concept stemmed from many players claiming it to be possible to block attacks on reaction in anywhere from 7 to 15 frames. Teyah wanted to see if there is any truth to this.
If you check out the thread you'll see that the average is somewhere around 20 frames. My average? 15 frames! Well, with 4 faults. Am I mashing?

American expat (and prominent community member) HeartNana is in Japan with an early copy of the game, and word is coming back from him (as well as other Japanese players) that the game is arcade perfect - and the netcode is extremely good - as expected. HeartNana comments that the netcode feels extremely similar to BlazBlue style netcode, which is obviously a good thing.
Once I get the game, I will write my initial impressions about it here, and look forward to the game being prominently featured on future TeamSp00ky streams since we are about dat poverty, after all.
Click the link above and it will take you to the Players Blog. If you have a registered account, log in, and you can post about anything fighting game related. Have some cool replays you want feedback on? Tournament travels you want to document? Perhaps general strategy for the community? Post it up and we'll give it front page exposure here on iPlayWinner!
Andria Sang is reporting that the upcoming port of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II for Nintendo 3DS and Sony PSP is set to hit both portable systems simultaneously. The date for the Japanese release is March 31st -- no word on an official North American release at this point.
Arc System Works also released some details on some of the features to be included in the game. Much like the PSP version of Calamity Trigger, BB:CSII will feature Legion Mode, which is strategy based approach to the game where you build and army of characters and attempt to conquer a map. There is also an Abyss Mode, though I have no idea what that is all about.
There are also a bunch of new screenshots for the upcoming game. Apparently it will look the same on both systems, though I assume there will be some 3D effects thrown in for the 3DS version. You can check out a few of the images below, and find the rest at Andria Sang.
Arcade Infinity Uses 5 Super Bars to Stay Alive, Will Remain Open for "an Unspecified Period of Time"
Most of you probably heard by now that Arcade infinity was set to close its doors at the end of this week, which of course was sad news to anyone who has stepped foot in there even once. Since then, Diamond Plaza -- the shopping center where Arcade infinity is located -- has stepped up to help them out. Kapwan sent over some more details on how this came about which you can read below.
With Marvel vs Capcom 3 right around the corner, I know the anticipation must be killing you; this upcoming video wont ease the pain, but will only make you hungry for more! We've teamed up with 1UP.com to bring you a Marvel vs Capcom 3 combo video featuring some of the newer characters such as C. Viper, Storm, Wesker and others. Some of the combos are all about damage, others are about cranking up that hit counter and some are just there to make you scratch your head. Either way, I hope you guys enjoy it!
This is just the beginning. Keep an eye out later this week for more Marvel vs Capcom 3 goodies from 1UP.com and iPlayWinner!
GAME a-cho uploaded another monster King of Fighters XIII video clocking in at right around an hour total. I am working on a few secret projects so I haven't been able to watch the entire thing, but any video that starts off with Shen Woo beating ass has to be quality! Check it out.
Desk released another SSF4 video, this time showcasing him mollywhoppin' fools online with his signature Chun-Li combo and a few other nasty set ups. Also, you may have heard that he plans on releasing many more videos through out 2011, and you'll see what's right around the corner in this video below.
GoogleMyName has released an amazing new trailer for CEO 2011 which will be held June 10-12 in Orlando, Florida. CEO 2011 is an official tournament of the EVO 2011 Tournament Season and is shaping up to be one of the biggest tournaments of 2011 with a venue that can rival EVO's, a $2,500 minimum pot payout for both SSF4 and MVC3 and with many top players to be in attendance. If that doesn't convince I'm sure this video will!
So, uh, apparently this aired on FX last night during X-Men, and I sat there watching... waiting.. but never saw it! Oh well, the new Marvel vs Capcom 3 TV commercial is now on YouTube thanks to Capcom-Unity! Check it out.
New promotional images surfaced on Capcom's Official Super Street Fighter 4 website, reminding us that the new costume pack for M. Bison, Sagat, Vega, Balrog & Seth lands tomorrow -- or today depending on where you live -- on both XBL and PSN! The costumes will run you about 4 bones on PSN or 320 MS Points on XBL.
You can check out images of all the new costumes and previous released alternates in the image gallery below.
Full release schedule of remaining costumes:
- Guile, Blanka, Dhalsim, Fei Long, Gen — January 25, 2011
- Full Costume Pack — April 26, 2011. (1,440 Microsoft points, or $18.00 USD)
I stumbled across this video today and found the presentation to be so good I just had to post it. Like the title says, this video breaks down a "Sako Combo" for Cammy, pausing at each stage of the combo to show players how it is done.
Capcom just released the much anticipated gameplay trailers for both Phoenix and Haggar! Keep in mind that these are different from the character trailers we saw last week. Check out both videos below.
In this episode we find out that Gootecks is far more 1337 than we could have ever imagined as he and Mike Ross talk about the early days of the internet. I love conversations like these, as they bring me back to simpler times. Actually, getting online back in the day was kind of a pain in the ass compared to now, and was slow as hell. Err, anyway, yes there is some SSF4 XBL trolling in this video so check it out.
SNK Hong Kong uploaded a handful of new combo videos for Ash and the Ladies Team (Yuri/King/Mai). These videos do a good job of demonstrating how you can build up to some pretty crazy combos by starting off with the basics. Thanks to DreamCancel.com for the heads up on these videos.
A handful of cool SSF4:AE videos popped up on my YouTube subscription over the weekend, and wanted to share these with you guys 'cuz they are pretty dope all around. The first two come from Kim1234's SSF4:AE YouTube Channel, with the first one featuring a rematch between Daigo and Mago. What will the outcome be this time? The next one is of Abel God Shiro who has a pretty close match between Ken Player John CHena.
The last video is of Tokido versus a Makoto player. Now, the Makoto player gets mollywhopped, but you can see a lot of improvements to her Fukiage and how it will help her out versus Akuma's okizeme.
