Crosscounter is back with yet another episode of The Excellent Adventures! In this episode, the guys are once more joined by Flash Metroid. Gootecks vows to go undefeated, Mike Ross shows off his godlike C. Viper and Gootecks gets a dishonorable discharge from the Balrog army. Check it out after the break!
We reported last friday that Star Gladiator and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness would be headed to the Japanese PSN's Games Archives, and now there's word that those lucky jerks over in Japan are getting yet another gem from Capcom's fighting game library: Darkstalkers 3, or as it's known over there, Vampire Savior EX Edition.
So far there's no word on a release date or a price for the PS1 port. As Siliconera points out in their report, Star Gladiator and Darkstalkers 3 have at least a shot of making their way over to the US PlayStation Store as both titles have already been localized. One can hope, right?
The team behind 100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience just released a new teaser trailer featuring Gootecks and Mike Ross and they talk about the arcade scene and how there is nothing else like it. Check out the trailer below, and if you're into what these guys are doing, please support them at IndieGoGo!
PlayrBltz uploaded a bunch of videos giving players a look at some of the single player goodies included in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Check out a few of the videos below and let us know what you think!

GameSpot held a 64-man pre-release tournament for Marvel vs Capcom 3 recently, where IPW's own Haunts, Darry and RogerDoger were in attendance. The first of several videos highlighting some of the matches from the event is up on YouTube, which you can find below. Other videos will be released every Friday leading up to the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3, so that'll give us -- me especially -- something to hold us over until the big day.
The first video showcases several matches from the tournament as it rounds down to the top 16 and also includes some choice words from the one and only Seth Killian. Give it a look!
I have seen the future. It wears a curley moustache.
Today, I drove up to San Francisco and met up with Haunts and Rogerdodger to play in GameSpot.com's Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament. Despite having been present at, and doing commentary for, more than one event since Evo where the game was playable, I hadn't gotten any time on the buttons. My exposure to the game was limited to drooling over match videos, then acting offended and claiming a severe mental disability brought on by a recent stroke when my friends mocked me for sitting with my mouth as open as a barn door while salivating down the front of my shirt.
I finished Top Eight.
UPDATE: Capcom has confirmed with Shacknews that more character announcements are coming, and they could be coming soon. Speaking with Shacknews, a Capcom representative stated, "All will be revealed in the next couple of weeks."
ORIGINAL: Capcom announced Hsien-Ko and Sentinel just yesterday, but it looks like Capcom is gearing up for even more announcements. On the characters page of the official Marvel vs Capcom 3 site, an image, seen on the left, suggests that you follow them on Twitter and Facebook for further character announcements.
Considering the apparently full launch roster has already been announced, these characters would have to end up being DLC. Capcom has hinted several times that more DLC characters could be in the works, so it looks like we might be hearing those announcements soon enough. Who knows, maybe we'll end up getting Strider after all?
If you are a Capcom fighting game fan and want a blast from the past, PSN has a double dose coming your way. Capcom Playstation One classics Star Gladiator and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness will be available on Playstation Network in Japan on February 9th. Both titles will be priced at 600 Yen each. There is no word on availability in other territories, but we'd be surprised if these don't get a wider release soon. Now, where's my Rival Schools!
Option-Select.com's Ryan Hunter is back already with another video from the In the Lab series, this time it's all about Cody. The first bit shows how some characters can't be juggled by a light Criminal Upper followed by an EX Criminal Upper and how this can lead into fairly practical safe jumps in certain situations. The video also shows off several other interesting tricks, so definitely give it a look if you've got any interest in Cody.

I was wondering who should I make my next Best of video for, then I realized why not everyone's favorite Ken player, Playerjun52, [Bon is his Arcade Player name in the Card System, he's ranked in the top 40 in AE with a Master rank, and one of the three top Ken players in AE along with Michael Tan and Wao]
Playerjun52 is known for using an exciting style, always looking for a flashy different way to finish matches. He has ultra setups that I've never seen before from anyone, and gets off something amazing virtually every match i've seen him in.

UPDATE: Check out the YouTube trailers below!
This announcement may follow a number of leaks, but that doesn't really make this announcement any less exciting. In an exclusive reveal from Eurogamer, Sentinel and Hsien-Ko have been officially confirmed for Marvel vs Capcom 3, videos, screenshots and all. You can check out all six gameplay videos as well as screenshots for both characters over at Eurogamer.
So what do you guys think of Sentinel and Hsien-Ko? Leave a comment and let us know!
IGN uploaded a cool video where the MK development team talks in depth about the X-Ray moves found in the new game. They go through how the models were created and other interesting details. Also, I guess I'm behind on MK news and reveals but this is the first time I've seen Goro gameplay. Looks dope! Check it out below.
