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.
Option-Select.com is back with another installment of the In the Lab series, this one focusing on the Hakan vs E. Honda match-up. The video goes into details on specific punishes, what works and what doesn't, as well as an in-depth demonstration of a meaty option select for Hakan's Ultra 2. Find it after the break.
Desk put together a cool video that gives us an idea of some of the shenanigans that are possible in SSF4: 3D Edition. Most of the new gameplay mechanics are due to the fact that you can now map special moves to the touch screen, and perform them with a single tap. Check out the entire video below.
In this episode of The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross, Flash Metroid once again joins the guys as they learn the wonders of wakeup neutral jabs, witness the power of Flash's Blanka, and Mike Ross tries his hand at random select in an attempt to impress Flash Metroid.
Check it out after the break and enjoy!
SNK Playmore uploaded the sixth in their official series of combo videos yesterday featuring the Psycho Soldier team of Athena, Kensou and Chin. I've been digging these series of combo videos, but damn if it doesn't always make the wait for a console announcement hard to bear.
Nothing replaces the excitement of a real tournament, streamed live where you get to watch the action as it happens. Nothing can top this in my mind.
Though these types of streams are ultimately the best, there are a few others that take a different approach by streaming online matches. PeacefulJay's and SRK Live come to mind and have certainty given some of us something to fill the void until the next major tournament rolls around.
Over here at iPlayWinner we feel there is a lot of room to expand when it comes to streaming online gameplay, and wanted to hear from the people what you want to see.
A bunch of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition videos popped up on Kim1234's YouTube channel earlier today. Some of the highlights include EG Justin Wong's match against Combofiend and Air's match against Flash Metroid, but all of them are pretty good. Additionally, Tokido posted a video on his latest blog of a sick Gen player beasting on a Dudley. Check 'em out below.
Neo Empire community member Carpet held a 32-man tournament at the recent Capcom Fight Club event over in Croydon, UK over the weekend. The result is 14 fresh videos of Marvel vs Capcom 3 for your enjoyment. The first 5 videos are embedded after the break and the rest can be found on Carpet's YouTube channel.
Thanks, Neo Empire!

USD over at NeoGAF did a bang up job translating the latest SSF4: AE dev blog which details some of the changes for a good chunk of the cast. Some of this stuff you might already know, but again it gives us a closer look at some of the subtle and not so subtle changes for each character.
A couple of weeks ago, Mike "I Believe" Ross came down to Houston to play some Arcade Edition at Planet Zero Arcade, I was able to get an impromptu interview with him. These questions were asked my myself and other PZ players such as Kensou, Four Wude, Kid Viper and Planet Zero owner John.
I was also able to get interviews with Kevin aka Kensou, one of the top C.Viper players out there and Adeel aka Four Wude, Texas's top Akuma player and top three in the nation in my book
Jim sent over a video that is pretty bizarre, even by our standards. Pulled from some old VHS tapes, this is a British gaming TV show that assembled some of the top Tekken players from around the world at the time, tossed them on a tropical island, and had them fight it out in an international Tekken 3 tournament. You'll see old footage of top players such as Ryan Hart in this one, and no, he wasn't the "Prodigal Son" back then, he was "The Terminator".
Many of you probably have seen the infamous photo of JS Master and BLG Filipino Champ, but now CrossCounterTV is giving everyone an up close an personal look at their "special moment." I was actually sitting on the other side of the stage during all this and, needless to say, laughed my ass off during the entire thing. Check out the full video after the break.
Desk is back with another combo video that will most likely blow your mind. As most of you probably know by now, Akuma's S. RH loop was mostly removed from SSF4 but Desk found some tricky ways to get around it. Check out the video below and be sure to check out the video description if you're wondering how he put all of this together.
If you live in Europe and love you some Arcana Heart, I have good news for you: UK-based publisher Zen United has confirmed that Arcana Heart 3 is headed to Europe on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The news comes from Neo Empire's interview with Zen United Marketing Manager Geraint Evans, where he talks his love for BlazBlue and, of course, about bringing Arcana Heart 3 to Europe.
We were able to confirm the news with Zen United but were told there's currently no ETA on just when it's expected to ship. For more info on the announcement, head on over to Neo Empire's interview.
Eurogamer posted an interview with Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma earlier this morning. In it, Niitsuma talks up the game's netcode, going as far to say that it runs at "the speed of light". Most of the interview is just another case of a developer talking up their own game, but he does have a couple of interesting, if not comforting things to say about the netcode such as this bit:
Dogface sat down with Neo and talked to him about a number of different topics surrounding what is most likely the most hype money match of our time: Clockw0rk vs Neo in Marvel vs Capcom 2. Hey, you can even see me in the background! Hah! Anyway, good stuff in here by Dogface so be sure to sit down and check it out when you have 20 or so minutes to spare.
