Well just today we heard that KOFXIII was going to get an update and it seems the Update is out already. An early report, which you can find in the full article, state that the update fixes bugs and takes out infinites, but doesn't appear to have any balance changes.
Thanks to IMNEXTONLINE for the tip!
Magnetro, known for his mind-blowing tool-assisted combo videos, is back! This video showcases some Magneto combos, some of which explore his flight mode. These were all done by hand! Here's what this video showcases, in his own words:
"Random Magneto combos done by hand in training mode over the span of a few days. I never messed around with Magneto's flight mode while I was doing real combovideos. It turns out he has some interesting concepts that can be executed manually."

The newest Level Up Your Game video podcast is here! In Episode 5 of the series, they talk about Asuka Kazama and have special guest Charles "Insomnotek" Kim on the show, an expert in the character, to talk about all aspects of the character.

Capcom-Unity just announced a new Fight Club is in the works and is set for October 28th. The location has not been revealed yet but they are running a contest where the first person to guess the location will win a Marvel prize pack! My hope is that the next one is in the Bay Area because, well, I live here!
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!

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).
Topics include his sponsorship at Evil Geniuses and sponsorships in general, reminiscing about Seasons Beatings 4 matches against Daigo (finals and first-to-10 exhibition), thoughts on Super Street Fighter 4, the current Marvel vs Capcom 3 build, living in California, fans and haters, thoughts on hype for Seasons Beatings, and more.
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.
