Gamespot posted a new interview with Seth Killian on Marvel vs Capcom 3's character roster, Seth's favorite characters thus far and a run down of the games simple mode. Seth mentions they are at the 50% mark when it comes to characters, so lets hope that means the best is still yet to come in regards to character reveals! Check out the full interview after the break!
Within all the chaos from TGS we have missed a very important interview with Katsuhiro Harada. Gamespot was able to catch Harada after TGS and talk about the newly announced Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Harada talks about how you will be able to have two characters to attack at the same time. Along with some new surprises for the level designs.

Youtube user 0xkeNzo has captured and uploaded several replays between EVO 2010 sensation Gamerbee (Adon) and Daigo "The Beast" Umehara (playing as Ken!)!
This series of vids is interesting because a) It's Gamerbee, b) It's Daigo, and c) It's Daigo playing Ken!
These are replays from online matches. If you are currently playing one of these two characters, the move data is on as well, making these even more educational. For everyone else, it's just fun to watch the show!
Check out the vids after the jump!

SRK and Eventhubs both put up interesting information on character use.
SRK conducted a poll asking players "Who is your main character in Super Street Fighter 4?". More then 5,500 players responded, and the results are predictable in some cases but shocking in others.
Eventhubs also had a data project in which they gathered information on how many times specific characters were encountered in online matches. More than 4,000 matches were added so far. Again, some surprises some not.
So, are there parallels between the two sources of data?
Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada just tweeted an image of a new shipment of SF x TK and TK x SF shirts. The Tekken fan shirts have Kazuya on them, while funny enough, the Street Fighter fan shirts have Dan on them!
Namco Bandai's Katsuhiro Harada, director of all-things Tekken, has posted another tease image regarding Soul Calibur. He uploaded the image shown via twitter with the following description:
SC series Lead Programmer (M.Hoshino) make a wish for a new SC...
There are many of us who wish for it as well! With Twitter being what it is, who knows if this is alluding to anything concrete, but it is good to know that the soul still burns at Namco Bandai. Thanks to Christian H. for the tip!
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. Not only is he 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.

The first public Keystone II event went down just a few weeks ago and was by far and away one of the best events NorCal has seen in a long time. The atmosphere was great with everyone having a ton of fun -- plenty of set ups to play and plenty of booze as well! Can't go wrong there. Check out the full trailer and a ton of photos from the event after the break!
Possible European Boxart for Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Kollection (UPDATE: Includes Demo for Mortal Kombat 2011?)
French website jeuxvideo posted what appears to be the European box art for the still officially unannounced Mortal Kombat HD Arcade Collection.
UPDATE!: The red text on the upper left of the box apparently says, in French, that this game will include a demo for Mortal Kombat 2011! More details inside full article.
The game has a "3D Compatible Game Video" logo on the lower right. We have not heard any news or rumors of an Xbox 360 version of the title, so it appears to be a Playstation 3 exclusive for now.
The cover also confirms that Mortal Komat 1, 2, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 are parts of the compilation.
They also posted a release date of November 18th for 30 Euros (around $40).
EventHubs pointed out what could be the first look at the Marvel vs Capcom 3 box art. This was found on the official Xbox Marketplace website though keep in mind there may not be anything "official" about it. Videogame box art is known to change often before the final release, as many of you may remember this was the case with Street Fighter 4.
Either way, what do you guys think? A good choice for the game or were you hoping for something else? Sound off in the comments and let us know!
Error1 over at Combovid.com put together an awesome list of glitches you can perform in the Street Fighter II series. This list has everything from the Guile Handcuff glitch to the Invisible Dhalsim glitch. One thing he mentions, is that you have to wonder if a number of these glitches are intentional or simply an oversight in programming by Capcom. Either way, this is a worthy read so go check it out!
