Street Fighter X Tekken: Cammy Teaser

Capcom Europe released a short teaser trailer for Street Fighter X Tekken today that "hints" at Cammy's inclusion in the ever-growing Street Fighter X Tekken roster. There's no gameplay -- and not much of her, for that matter -- but I'm sure it won't be long before we see more.

Until then, check out the teaser trailer below.

iPW Guest Article: SSF4: AE Yang Breakdown by ROM (Part Two: Normals)

While Yang’s normals are fairly good, zoning is not his forte. The ranges on his normals (cancelable or otherwise) are somewhat stubby, so getting into a poking fight with certain characters can be costly. This in no way means that his normals are useless, but rather they are much more powerful up close, exactly where he (and you) want to be. However, there will be times where it’s more profitable to play a patient game, and thus knowing what your normals are capable of is a must.

Mortal Kombat Kung Lao Combo Video

BBCS2: Bugs and Glitches Video

This refers to the console release, not necessarily the arcade edition. Thanks to Jourdal for providing me this video.

Upon first examination, some of these glitches could be critical in tournament or online play. For instance, Bang not wallbouncing after double palm thrust near the corner cuts off his damage options. In fact, most of the issues seems to be revolving around wallbounces for corner damage, a now staple change to BBCS2's gameplay and momentum.

First Soul Calibur V Details, HD Trailer

Eurogamer dropped the first details on Soul Calibur V straight out of the event over in Dubai last night. According to Eurogamer's report, the game takes place 17 years after the events of Soul Calibur IV and stars Patroklos, Sophitia's son.

When asked about the inclusion of guest characters such as Yoda and Darth Vader in Soul Calibur IV, Project Soul producer Hisaharu Tago told Eurogamer that they will, in fact, have more guest characters. More news on that is expected "soon" -- likely when E3 comes around, where Namco is expected to show off even more goods. Head over to Eurogamer for even more info from the announcement.

Last but not least, Namco Bandai released the HD announcement trailer shown at the event on YouTube, which you can check out below. What do you think? Are you excited to see Soul Calibur's return?

TEKKEN: BLOOD VENGEANCE TEASER TRAILER

Ever watch the Tekken intros and think to yourself "man, they should just go ahead and make a full length film out of these?" No? It's just me? Well, either way Namco just released a trailer for their upcoming full length CG movie titled Tekken: Blood Vengeance! Not too much is known at this point about the movie, but it is directed by Youichi Mouri who put together all the opening cinematics for both Tekken 5 and Tekken 6: BR and is slated for a Summer 2011 release.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift 2 Now Available on XBL

Those of you who have been eagerly anticipating the next revision of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will be happy to know that CS2 is now available for download on Xbox Live as of today! According to Dustloop, just turn on your console and wait for the first small update to download, then you can proceed to download the "1.03" update which is about 750MB -- this is the CS2 patch. From here, you can go ahead and download Platinum or simply get in the lab with all previously released characters.

As far as I know -- correct me if I'm wrong -- the update is free but Platinum costs 560 MS points. 

If you've already downloaded the update and Platinum, what do you think? Worth the wait or have you moved onto other games by now?

SSF4: AE - New Yun Genei-Jin Ground Combo & Link Into Ultra 2

Whoisodis sent over a few new combos he discovered in SSF4:AE, one being a ground Genei-Jin combo (which reminds me of the old school Keeper Jin combo) and a way to link into his Ultra 2 from Genei-Jin as well. This is the first time I've seen either of these combos and I'm sure I'm not the only one -- shoutouts to American technology! Check out the videos below.

Blazblue Continuum Shift: Platinum Console Trailer!

Update: To clarify, the American release for BBCS2 (and Platinum) is today on Xbox 360. No official word just yet on when it's due out for PS3. -Kumo

As the Blazblue Continuum Shift 2 date lurks closer and closer, Arc System Works continues to tease us with Platinum gameplay! Date release is vague for America, as the dates in the trailer may be for Japanese consoles only. On top of that, with the PSN network being down, the release date is now even more hazy. With the announcement that the PSN network will be in semi-running condition (Online gaming will be revived, but the store down), people are forseeing that the BBCS2 update will be successful, but access to Platinum the Trinity will not be. What do you guys think?

Mortal Kombat: Sektor and Jade Combo Videos by Check

Combo videos for both Sektor and Jade have been put together by Check.  Both videos show many different combos that inflict a great deal of damage on the opponent, with some using X-Ray moves and some not.  Even if you don't play either character, they are still fun to watch simply for the stylish combos and execution.

You can find more combo videos by Check at his youtube channel.

IPW TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Which Fighting Game Needs a Patch the Most?

Every fighting game, no matter how much fun it is, will always have elements within it that players will feel need to be patched or taken out. It used to not be like this as when a game was released, you just had to accept it for what it was. These days, however, we have the luxury of having our voices heard and the developers hopefully taking notes of what sort of changes need to be made in the next patch and/or revision of the game.

So, now that you've had time to play some of the newer games such as Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, and for some, Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, which game do you think needs a patch the most at this point and why?

Shadowloo Presents - TTC|ToXY SSF4 Highlight Reel

Our friends over at Shadowloo just sent over this cool highlight reel for TTC|ToXY which contains a ton of high level Akuma play. While the combos and set ups are cool in this video, I found the decisions that TTC|ToXY makes -- blocking and baiting certian attacks at the right time -- versus his opponents to be far more impressive. Check out the full vid below.

Anime-style fighters may not be particularly popular, but is anyone planning on trying this if and when it sees a console release?

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Advanced - C.Viper Combo Video by Desk

This video by Desk shows a more advanced combo for C.Viper in Marvel vs Capcom 3.  If you are a C.Viper player, the video shows Desk's hands as he performs the combo.  It can be helpful for some players to be able to see how he is inputting the combo while you see the combo being performed in the picture-in-picture.  Excellent work by Desk, as always!
