Marvel vs Capcom 3: Arthur Combo Video by Persona

You normally don't see Arthur getting close and personal too much (at least on purpose!), preferring to throw everything but the kitchen sink at you from afar instead.  However, this video from Persona shows several very nice Arthur combos.  If you play Arthur, you should check this out for ideas.  If you don't, just enjoy the show!

Cross Counter Interview with Broly Legs, Disabled SSF4 Chun-Li Player

Gootecks met up with Broly Legs down at Southern Impact recently, who is a disabled SSF4 and Smash Bros. player who despite his condition, places extremely well in both games. This is a very inspiring interview, and really nothing I can put into words can do this video justice. Check out the video below when you get a few as it will definitely give you another outlook on life and what is possible if you put your mind to it.

IPW Guest Article: From Fan to Fanatic – The Welcoming World of Gaming

[Editor's note: This guest article from Trevor "Scan" Scanlon of GLHF.tv gives thanks to the competitive gaming scene in general - RTS and fighters alike - for being so accepting and, well, awesome. A great read for fans of any competitive gaming scene, be it fighting games or otherwise. Enjoy! -Kumo]

For the majority of my life, I lived on the East Coast.  My childhood was spent in Connecticut, my college years in Boston.  Neither of these places are particularly known for their gaming communities.  Sure, there were small CoD4 tourneys in Boston every now and then, but there was no fighting/arcade scene at all to speak of.  I was a typical gamer, spending time between RPGs and fighting games and, yes, I even used to like Halo.  While I loved video games, they were still a recreational activity between myself and some of my friends.

Two people changed that.

SSF4: Makoto Cross-Up Compilation

Top Makoto player V-Ryu put together a new video showcasing many of Makoto's character specific, ambiguous cross-ups. You might have seen videos on her Abare Tosanami (Ultra 2) crossing up certain characters, and that's just one of the techniques you'll find in this video.  

Keep in mind due to some of her changes, these may not work in Arcade Edition.

Mortal Kombat: Jade & Kitana vs Sindel & Mileena Tag Team Trailer

A new trailer for Mortal Kombat hit the web today, this time featuring a tag team battle of Jade & Kitana vs Sindel & Mileena. Just like virtually all of the other trailers, there is a lot of brutal stuff in this one, though I have to say the final X-Ray move in this one is especially cringe-worthy. Thanks to TheUltimateRyu for the YouTube upload!

Marvel vs Capcom 3: A Closer Look at "Maximum Wesker" Video

Wesker's Phantom Dance Hyper Combo, also known by the nickname of "Maximum Wesker", seems very random at first glance.  However, it is not as random as you might think. 

Gimpyfish put together this short video examining some of this Hyper Combo's characteristics.  Even if you don't play Wesker yourself, you should watch this video so that you can have a better idea of your potential options if you play against one.

On the Scene: Get Roasted at Dragon Lounge

Dragon Lounge: 24th & TaravalSince I moved out to California some five or so years ago, there is one thing that always boggled my mind: why does San Francisco, a major metropolitan city of over 800,000 people, have no real fighting game scene? Sure, around the Bay Area there are plenty such as Starbase Arcade in San Rafael and Keystone II down in San Jose, but in the city proper there is very little going on. 

Until now. Enter the Dragon Lounge -- that is, as long as you're over 21!

Arcadia Magazine Top 10 & VF5 Final Showdown Upgrade Details

Oichi over at VersusCity posted up some details on the upcoming upgrade for VF5: Final Showdown from the latest issue of Arcadia Magazine. It sounds like there are going to be some fairly significant changes to the game and overall character balance, with the adjustment to the bound system only allowing one bound per combo instead of two. Right now some characters have combos that take off well over 50% of the opponents health due to how the bound system currently works.

He also mentions something that is purely opinion and not from the magazine, but is something I think we can all agree with. If VF5 Final Showdown doesn't get a console release soon, the franchise will be effectively dead outside of Japan. I agree 100% in that with so many fighting games being released worldwide, if SEGA doesn't step it up and do a serious push for VF, I doubt anyone will care about the series come this time next year.

MvC3: New 1v1 and 2v2 Events Added for Arcade Mode

When you boot up Marvel vs Capcom 3 on your console of choice today, you'll be treated to a little update in the Events Mode section. Events number 18 and 19 were added - without a patch - and they include 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 modes (respectively). For both events, you'll have to do a full arcade run with only one (or two) characters available.

What do you guys think about this? Would you like to see a 1vs1 or 2vs2 versus mode in the future?

Mortal Kombat: Interview with Hans Lo and Erin Piepergerdes by Dr Jackal

Dr Jackal put together a cool little interview with Mortal Kombat 9 producer Hans Lo and associate producer Erin Piepergerdes. The interview covers a number of topics that I'm sure you guys will be interested in, from bringing in tournament-level players to help ensure the game launches as balanced as possible, to a bit of info on the hooks NetherRealm put in place to allow for quick turn-around times on balance adjustments.

It's a pretty good interview, so give it a look when you have a moment to spare.

MvC3: Revenge of the Spencer Glitch by Desk

One of the issues "addressed" in the recent surprise of a patch was supposed to be Haggar and Spencer's DHC glitch that left the opponent stuck in a grounded state. Well, according to Desk's latest video, Capcom apparently missed a few steps because the glitch is back again, just slightly modified. See for yourself below.

GamePro Video Review of Super Street Fighter 4: 3D Edition

GamePro has put together a video review for Super Street Fighter 4: 3D Edition on the new Nintendo 3DS handheld.  You can see the video review for yourself, but I've been seeing lots of positive buzz about this game not only in the press but also among players that I know.  It seems like a pretty faithful conversion.

Rumor for Those Why Buy Used Games: Mortal Kombat's Online Multiplayer May Require "Online Pass" to Play

I guess the "online pass" is becoming less of a trend and is moving ever more toward becoming the standard.  Joystiq has learned from sources that Mortal Kombat may require an "online pass" to play online multiplayer.  If you buy the game new, the box will allegedly contain an "online pass" token that must be redeemed before you can play online multiplayer. If you buy the game used, however, you may have to purchase this pass if you want to do the same.

This has absolutely no effect on those who are buying new copies, so don't worry if you are doing that.  This move is aimed at those who buy used copies.  If you buy the game used and the previous owner has already redeemed the code, you will have to purchase an "online pass" in order to get that online multiplayer.
