Gootecks uploaded a new video to his CrossCounter.TV YouTube account of him and Mike Ross trolling XBL. Apparently they had some free time after filming the latest Cross Counter and decided to see what's good online. This is worth checking out for the commentary alone and Flash Kick to Flash Kick -- gotta see it to believe it!
Many of you have probably seen the Street Fighter 4 PC Koryu videos where the game has been hacked allowing for all sorts of stupid nonsense. This video is in the same vein but for BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. You'll see 400-something hit combos from Arakune and what is more or less a Rolling Death Cradle from Tager. Really goofy stuff, check it out after the break!
Reno from VersusCity has gotten a tip that an update for the arcade version of King of Fighters XIII is coming. The date and contents of the update are unknown, but he speculates that it will do things like remove the infinites and possibly implement balance tweaks. The best news, for arcade operators, is that the update is free to those who already own the game.
SNK Playmore has not formally announced a console version for King of Fighters XIII.
It's a light news day, so this video is fun to watch. Video after the jump!

Gootecks has started a series of videos where he analyzes his own matches. If you are interested in learning about what to look for in your own matches, these videos can be educational as he really analyzes the situations and the options available in those situations.
Check out parts 1 and 2 inside. We'll post part 3 when Gootecks uploads it, which I'm sure will be soon.
How to Get Better At Street Fighter, by Juicebox Abel. Part Six: The List, Analyzing Your Matches, and Conclusion
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. He is not only 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.
This Article: Wrapping Up The List, Analyzing Your Matches, and Conclusion
IMNEXTONLINE spotted an interesting post on MMCafe via Japanese website 4Gamer.net stating that a few patches are on the way for Super Street Fighter 4. What are the patches all about? These will allow you to view alternate costumes that your opponent is wearing online if you haven't downloaded the alternate outfits yourself -- for XBOX360 anyway -- and is completley optional.
Hey guys, just wanted to drop a quick note here that we just set up a forum for iPlayWinner. You can access it at any time by using the top navigation bar. The forum itself is very simple, but as most of you have probably noticed by now we're trying to keep things nice and clean around here.
In the future we hope to add in some other features such as avatars and what not but right now our primary goal is to give our users a place to speak their mind and also ask questions.
With Season's Beatings: Redemption almost upon us (Oct. 15-17), hear SB1-3 champion Justin Wong reminisce about his SB4 matches with Daigo (including his first-to-10 exhibition and epic winner's and grand finals matches).

Interview after the jump!
Capcom Asistant Producer Akihito Kadowaki, in the new Marvel vs Capcom 3 blog entry, informs us that the development team is about done adding characters to the game.
There was no other useful info in the entry, as the rest was a recounting of their presence at Tokyo Game Show.
The focus of the team will now turn to tasks like balancing the game, creating endings for the characters, and localization work, among other things I am sure.
Expected to release in early November, Capcom Arcade will include four arcade titles for free. They are Street Fighter 2, Ghouls n Gohsts, 1942 and Commando. The menu aesthetic is that of a virtual Capcom Arcade, with anime-styled greeters, and arcade cabinets to select the various games.

It’s a standard 4-stage process that occurs throughout history in every country, every culture, and for the sake of this particular article, every community.
Yoshinori Ono just posted an image to his Twitter account which appears to be Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition. Though the logo isn't that clear, there is a PS3 and what looks to be a revised Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike menu screen. Is this our first look at the upcoming revision of the game? Hopefully new details will be revealed soon.
Here is Ono's original tweet:
Today, I had played something! It's non-stress match-up ! So, I'm looking foward to it!! Eveyone Plz wait soon.
When I was a little kid I asked my grandma if she could buy me a NeoGeo for my birthday which was about $700 at the time. She laughed at me as if I was joking but it was seriously the only thing I ever wanted at that age. I ended up getting a Gameboy game and some X-men cards instead. Needless to say, I was devastated even though X-men cards were pretty dope back in the day. Oh yeah, check out this video about the history of the NeoGeo after the break!
Shadowloo has uploaded another excellent combo video, this one being over six minutes long and available in HD. It was created for Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM) 2010.
It has combos for Street Fighter 3: 2nd Impact and 3rd Strike but most of it is Super Street Fighter 4. It shows combos for many characters.
With the exception of the ones for Street Fighter 3, all combos were done by hand without tool assistance.

It is a history of "The Pit", one of the series' most iconic stages.
It gives you a little story context behind the stage, which is nice, and also includes some footage of the new title.
