Arcade Infinity uploaded three new videos from a recent King of Fighters tournament showcasing the top 8 players. What can I say? I can't wait for this game to come out. Every video I see I'm always blown away by the HD sprites and over all presentation. Of course, watching players who actually know what they are doing helps a lot too. Check out all three videos below!
BossLogic put together another awesome set of Marvel vs Capcom 3 Wallpapers featuring Ryu, Iron Man Felicia and a handful of others!

We've also uploaded the standard sizes to our image gallery here on iPlayWinner which you can check out below. Enjoy!

100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience trailer is a sneak peek of what appears to be a very interesting documentary on Japanese arcades. You'll see a ton of great footage of the inside of these arcades, and a few interviews from people such as Gootecks and Brian Ashcraft (Kotaku.com).
Gootecks and Mike Ross are back with another excellent adventure as they take on Gootecks' pupil, Throwryuken! Well, not exactly his pupil but this video will show you how far you can go as a player by using Gootecks' Balrog guide as a foundation.

Gametrailers TV featured Mortal Kombat, and as promised it had a lot of new information about the game as well as some exclusive reveals! Jax has been confirmed to be in the line-up and the Subway stage returns from Mortal Kombat 3. JrockEclipse was kind enough to share what he saw on the program, via SRK. The first screen cap of Jax from the show has also come in. We look forward to more screens and/or video from the show to surface. For now, here are the details!
Super Street Fighter 4 producer Yoshinori Ono tweeted today that the arcade version of Super Street Fighter 4 has essentially "gone gold" -- or is now complete from a development standpoint. The game is slated to be released in Japanese arcades in December. More than that, it's rumored that a handful of arcades in the US will have the game and many of us can expect to see the game at these locations around this time as well.
Wow! So this really came out of nowhere and is an awesome treat for all of us fighting game fans. Red Rapper aka Zaid Tabani put together an awesome documentary about the current state of the fighting game scene and how it got to where it is today. Lots of great interviews with players such as Alex Valle and James Chen. The best part is that this is only the first episode! Check out the full video after the break!
It is an amazing game and is well worth the price, for sure. Sure you may find a used copy here or there for a bit cheaper, but also consider that you will have this game at your fingertips right on your hard-drive, so there is no need to get off your couch to change the disc. That's got to be worth a few bucks right there!
It also has online code which is pretty good as well. If memory serves, this was one of the first fighting games to actually have decent online play.
The EVO Championship Series continues to expand. This time, they are presenting their first ever online tournament! Now you don't have to worry about taking time off work and spending lots of money on travel and other accommodations, you can participate from home!

Following the tournament finals, Galaxy4Gamers will run their beat-a-pro contest, where you can try your skills against top players for prizes. Entry fee is $5, but it could be the best $5 you ever spent if you win!
Here is the overview of the event, courtesy of SRK's Mr. Wizard:
IPW Topic of the Week: Should The Conduct of Stream Commentators and Tourney Players Be More Professional?
Seasons Beatings 5: Redemption was an amazing tournaments with many epic moments. However, there were some incidents regarding conduct, both from official stream commentary and from players in the tournament, which have stirred up debate in the fighting game community.
So, what do you think it is in the best interests of the community for our stream commentators to act more professional, like a sports broadcast? Do you think it's in the best interests that players act more professional and be more "humble?". Do you think it's in the community's best interests that things remain as they are, where commentators and players can say what they wish "in the moment", regardless of how it will come across to the thousands of viewers at home? Or is there some in spot in between that you think we should strive to achieve?
What is the correct balance of professionalism and hype?
Thanks to Spiron for an excellent topic! Have an idea for a future topic? Hit the thread in the IPW Forum and let us know! If you missed last week's topic, "When will Super Street Fighter 4 be Dethroned?", check it out here!
MLG released a statement today saying they are banning two top Smash players -- Mew2King and ADHD -- from the MLG Dallas finals due to a fixed match. The MLG rules state that players may not engage in “intentional Forfeiting or conspiring to manipulate Rankings or Brackets". Apparently some shady business went down at MLG D.C., and after an investigation, MLG decided to ban the two players from the competition. Read more about it by clicking here.
Now, we don't typically ever post about Smash Bros. on iPlayWinner, but this is relevant to the fighting game scene as a whole. Believe it or not, fixing and throwing matches is a very common occurrence in tournament play, unfortunately.
They're just using XBL for what it is good for: just messing around and having a good time... and they are having a good time! It's pretty fun to watch.
This week features shenanigans at Seasons Beatings 5 and the debut of Gootecks' scrub-tastic day 1 Chun Li!
