Remember that trailer for Mortal Kombat: Rebirth that popped up on YouTube back in June? It was reported that it was just a pitch to Warner Bros. to get a film made, but it was never really confirmed one way or another. According to a report by website Bloody Disgusting, it looks like something will come of it after all: a 10-part web series.
Usually I'd say that background info on a stage in a fighting game is a waste of time, but the ones that are put together for Mortal Kombat are actually really well done and the tidbits of background info do add to the game IMO. Even if you care nothing for backstory, this short vid is worth a look for some gameplay footage and a good look at the stage's details.
In this episode of Excellent Adventures, Gootecks and Mike Ross begin to suspect that the tables are turning and that they are being trolled themselves, AOL memories are shared, and Mike Ross' personal Ultra meter gets filled over a sly remark.
Also, ever wonder what happened to Ken I? Find out why you haven't heard from him in a while in this episode. Enjoy!
The official Marvel vs Capcom 3 blog was updated earlier tonight with a glimpse at the comic and art that you'll get if you choose to plop down the extra $10 for the collector's edition of Marvel vs Capcom 3. Going by the look of the art shown in the image, it appears that the recently leaked concept art showing off Akuma could be the real deal after all.
We just might get the opportunity to find out for sure very soon, as according to a translation of the blog by Andriasang there will be yet another character announcement sometime next week. Check out the full-size image of the comic and art after the break.

Today I sat down with MvC3 and made a number of videos for Neo Empire. Tonight I'm releasing two of the videos, taking a closer look at Amaterasu. After seeing the character intros I knew the wolf was going to be my favourite! She has pretty good rushdown and will destory you if you don't push block.
Hello everyone this is fABIIO and I am finally back with another video update. I provide you with weekly (at least I try to do it weekly) video updates from my Youtube channel. These consist of games like: GGXX AC, AH3, HnK and on some occasions some other games make it on there. This week I have a set of five Hokuto no Ken videos and some nice AH3 combo videos to go along with the hype of the newly released console port.
Aris over at Avoiding the Puddle put together a great podcast with some of the biggest names in the 3D fighting game world: Katsuhiro Harada (Tekken Director), Michael Murray (Tekken Design Team) and Daishi Odashima (New Director for the Soul Calibur series). Aris asks a lot of hard hitting questions that have been on the minds of many players out there and gets some really interesting responses. Even if you're not a Tekken fan, as always, the Avoiding the Puddle Podcast is well worth your time so check it out when you get the chance.

Alright, so this video has pretty much nothing to do with fighting games except that these two guys happen to play Street Fighter and it's on CrossCounterTV. But you know what? That's a good enough of reason for me to post this because it's so damn funny. Gootecks and Mike Ross engage in an epic dance-off in Kinect Dance Central at CES 2011 and the results may surprise you. Check it out.
Kobayashi sent over a really cool link this morning I wanted to share with everyone. This is a flash based reaction time test centered around Milla's (Guilty Gear) overhead attack, which was created by Teyah on the DustLoop forums. The concept stemmed from many players claiming it to be possible to block attacks on reaction in anywhere from 7 to 15 frames. Teyah wanted to see if there is any truth to this.
If you check out the thread you'll see that the average is somewhere around 20 frames. My average? 15 frames! Well, with 4 faults. Am I mashing?

American expat (and prominent community member) HeartNana is in Japan with an early copy of the game, and word is coming back from him (as well as other Japanese players) that the game is arcade perfect - and the netcode is extremely good - as expected. HeartNana comments that the netcode feels extremely similar to BlazBlue style netcode, which is obviously a good thing.
Once I get the game, I will write my initial impressions about it here, and look forward to the game being prominently featured on future TeamSp00ky streams since we are about dat poverty, after all.
