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.
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.

Growth, Stability, Decline, and Rejuvenation.
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.

Many of you are probably familiar with the Third Strike combo videos by Project KYSG, but they also put together Tekken combo videos from time to time as well. This one was just released today with a ton of goofy and high damage combos for a number of different characters. Check out the video after the break!
The WCG Finals for Tekken 6 wrapped up a little earlier today and as I understand it, on Day 2 they ran pool play to see who would advance. Team USA -- Fighting GM and The Game -- did not make it out of pools, though Ryan Hart from the UK did, eventually being eliminated on Day 3 by AO who is from Japan. Check out the top 3 after the break!
The internet can be a dangerous place to aimlessly roam, but sometimes you can stumble upon something interesting. The other night while randomly browsing USTREAM I landed on Sakamotosan's Channel that was broadcasting Japanese CVS2 matches. Digging a little deeper I found some Darkstalkers recordings labeled "Mikado" which is a Japanese arcade known for its eclectic selection of fighting games. Check out the replays after the break!
It is hosted by MIKEYBOY956 & FightCorner, as well as presented and sponsored by LaredoSFIV, and IMNEXTONLINE is going to be there to bring you the latest in results, interviews, and more! Including the Top 3 results for every tournament and a embed of the stream!
For those who want the lowdown and info on Border Rumble 2010, you can visit the official rules page on LaredoSFIV.
They are playing Super Street Fighter 4, Tekken 6, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Soul Calibur 4.
The stream is already active, so if you want to watch some live fighting game action, check out the stream here.
Pherai is back and fully recovered from his trip to Japan and we decided to put together another podcast for you guys this week. This one turned out pretty good too -- we both shoot the shit about a number of different topics such as SBO, current happenings in the Japanese arcade scene and even Danisen Leagues popping up here in the states. Listen to the podcast and check out the epic Dudryu match after the break!
Ono has been going bonkers with the tweets over the past hour or so, posting that he has a "positive attitude" towards Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition DLC for both PSN/XBL. He mentions he is also writing a proposal for "upstairs" -- which I assume is the higher-ups at Capcom -- for SSF4: AE DLC at the moment and to "please wait for the results."
He also responded to a ton of fans tweets regarding Darkstalkers, mentioning he would rather see a Darkstalkers revival before a Rival Schools remake.
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.
