Boom Cube and few others over at the SRK Forums posted up some really great information about Makoto in Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition. A lot of the stuff they posted are things I've been wondering about even since the Dev. Blog update a while back, so it's nice to finally have some confirmation on these changes. After reading all this, I am fairly confident she is going to be a huge threat to a large part of the cast once more players get a grasp of her game.
Below is a summary of the key points from the thread, along with some other known info, though you can read the entire thread here.
If you are looking for that last little gimmick that you need to win the last tournament round, this is the video for you! MrDustKicka has put together a bunch of Dudley reset combos.
This video shows you ways of resets after a focus crumble with Dudley. They can lead into some regular bread and butter combos or just ways to land the ultra after the reset for maximum damage.

I have nothing but good things to say about this week's Avoiding The Puddle Podcast. Aris and MYK preach the good word about the fighting game players mentality. They give you the raw rundown on how to go into tournaments with a mindset that you can beat anyone.
On top of the normal news Aris swooped up Mr. Naps to bring onto the podcast. Mr. Naps is a regular at Keystone II and a resident of NorCal. Aris touches on many subjects with Mr. Naps within the interview during the podcast.
Over all this is a must listen podcast. I can't stress this enough. Aris and MYK know how to break it down for a enjoyable listen for your ears.
With Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition already released in Japanese arcades, many fighting game fans outside of Japan will surely want to get our hands on it as well. We've gotten confirmation of locations that currently have the game playable and open to the public, and many others that are rumored to pick it up soon.
We've updated this list with more locations, and tagged those that have the game now as "Playable". We also plan to add in locations for other arcades around the world carrying the game outside of the US -- excluding Japan for obvious reasons.
We posted up an article not too long ago about an upcoming Rurouni Kenshin fighting game coming out for PSP, and to my surprised there seemed to be a lot of interest in it -- much more than I anticipated. Now, the first trailer for the game has been released, showcasing combos and movesets for each of the characters. Check out the full video after the break!
Seth Killian posted up a link to a cool article on Marvel.com about the thought process and inspiration behind the alternate colors and costumes for the Marvel side of MVC3. Not only does the article go into the different comics and events the costumes were inspired by, but also include screenshots of the alternate colors you may have not seen before. The last bit about Magneto you gotta' read for yourself -- awesome!
Check out the entire article by clicking here.
As most of you probably know by now, the new set of alternate costumes hit XBL and PSN today, and with that comes a video showcasing each one for Zangief, E. Honda, Rufus, Abel and El Fuerte! Definitely worth checking out if you're not sure about picking up the new costumes yet.

Drum n Bass DJ and host of the NoShow, Will Guise, sent over these images of a Technics 1200 Turntable with working joystick buttons! According to this post, the buttons are mapped to control certain functions within Traktor -- so they're just not for style, they're actually useful!
Yo! I just uploaded a few more direct feed videos of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition. These feature more of K J's Yun and W A O is back with more Dudley action as well. You can view the videos on their original pages by clicking here and here, or check out the YouTube versions below.
Magus sent over a few videos of EG Marn playing Yun versus Mike Ross, playing E. Honda of course. You can see in these videos that Marn's Yun is pretty serious already with some pretty nasty set ups, though Mike seems to be figuring out some anti-Yun strats on the fly. You can check out the videos below, and thanks to 240sxer for the uploads!

If you've had your fill of Yun videos, I don't blame you. While I've enjoyed seeing the progress of players using him, Yang has been living in the shadow of his brother for the past few days. Most Yang videos I've come across have been fairly lackluster to say the least, but a few solid ones surfaced on Yaukong's YouTube Channel.
After watching these videos, I think Yang has a lot of untapped potential. His Standing Jab seems to give him ridiculous advantage on hit or block, not to mention a few other tricks up his sleeve such as Roll Kick (forget the proper name, sorry) FADC into Roll Kick. Anyway, I embedded a few of the videos below, so check 'em out when you get a chance.
