World Officially Ending - Capcom vs Namco Rumors 

Game Informer is reporting a rumor that two very different Versus style games are being developed by the two biggest companies in the fighting game arena. Supposedly, both companies are developing their own game, pitting their characters against the rival's. Namco's game is reportedly being built with the Tekken 6 engine, while the rumor has it that Capcom's game is being developed with the SFIV engine. Given that the heads of both franchises were recently on stage together in Vegas, hamming it up, and with Ono's imminent announcement of a game, the stars do seem to be in alignment. 

Note, that these games are not continuations of the previous Namco x Capcom, an RPG. These are fighting games.

ARCADE VERSION OF SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4 PLAYABLE THIS WEEKEND IN JAPAN

  

Oichi over at VersusCity recently posted that the arcade version of Super Street Fighter 4 will have a location test this weekend in Akihabara. More location tests will be held in Japan over the following weeks, and you can check out the dates and location by clicking here. This was confirmed with screenshots of the arcade version at the official CAPCOM site

Oichi also mentions there is apparently a new ranking system for the arcade version -- one number for your national rank and another for your local rank. There have been hints of additional features not seen in the console version being added to the arcade version as well, so we'll keep you updated as new info surfaces about this release of the game.

The Secret Street Society of Street Fighters

Two of the baddest dudes in the Street Fighters scene, Pherai and Mister Bean bring us PRO TIPS, top player interviews and even some top level "Xzibition Matchez". I feel this video creates more questions than answers though:

  • Will we ever see a patch for the "Baby Uppercut into Full-on Uppercut" set up? Seems broken.
  • Where will Jason Wong be in 20 years?
  • Will we ever see Pherai again?

Pretty much as the title says, this is a compilation of G4's top 10 moments of EVO 2010.  If you missed EVO 2010, this is a good highlight vid.  I missed some of these myself (couldn't watch ALL of EVO after all!). Do you have a fav moment or is there one you think should have been included?

EVO 2010: Sirlin's "The Miracle Man with Zangief", an article about HD Remix Winner Snake Eyes

David Sirlin, who was involved in the development of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, put up a blog post a few days ago about Snake Eyes, the EVO 2010 winner in that game's tournament. It's a great behind the scenes article.

Check out "Evolution 2010: The Miracle Man with Zangief" here on Sirlin's website.

Here's a sample:

I played Snake Eyes a long time ago on Xbox Live, and I didn't think a lot of him. Yeah he's good, but so are a lot of other players. Zangief has a lot of bad matchups, so I can counterpick and be fine, whatever. But people told me "no really, this guy is GOOD." AquaSnake claimed Snake Eyes would make top 8 "for sure, guaranteed" and that he would probably make top 2. This seemed crazy to me. Another player told me there was some casual play of Street Fighter HD Remix with about 20 known players, and Snake Eyes beat all of them in a row with no losses, then beat all of them again. (What??)

In case you missed it, here is the EVO 2010 Grand Finals for HD Remix between DVG (Ryu) and Snake Eyes (Zangief). It's an epic matchup with lots of clutch plays. Believe it or not, HD Remix is a great game and still has an active following.

Trailer for FOCUS: A Documentary about Mike Ross' Road to Evo 2010. Also, Submit Reader Questions for an upcoming Mike Ross IPW Interview

FOCUS Trailer: There are a lot of trailers going around now for documentaries about various aspects of the fighting game scene. In my opinion, this is a great thing as it is another avenue to introduce others to the fighting game community and its players. Hopefully most of these actually reach completion and don't end at trailers.

This one is pretty interesting though, as it is about Mike Ross' road to EVO 2010, where he took 4th place with E.Honda. It is being done by Steve Hwang. As a big fan of Mike Ross, as a player and as a person, I'd like to see this one. Speaking of Mike Ross...

Submit Your Questions for a Mike Ross Interview: We will are putting together an interview with Mike Ross and thought it would be cool to see if there are any questions you'd like us to ask. Just leave the questions in the comments if you have any.

EVO 2010: nMo Interviews Burnyourbra: Runner-Up in Super Street Fighter 4 Women's Tourney

nMo has posted a good interview with Burnyourbra, the second place finisher at EVO 2010's Super Street Fighter 4 women's tournament!  EVO making some step to include women is a great step forward for the scene in my opinion, even if opinions vary on the implementation.

Her main is Ken but she also played Gouken and Rose. It's interesting to get a perspective from a female player for a change.  It also shows her gameplay as the interview progresses, which is really nice. If you make comments, keep it classy.

Thanks to Victor T for the tip!

Playworks Interviews Momochi & ChocoBlanka

Playworks interviewed Momochi and ChocoBlanka while they were in Singapore for Battle Medley 2010. It's a fairly short interview but they do ask a handful of interesting questions. Here is a small excerpt and you can read the entire interview here.

What do you think of Super Street Fighter IV?

C: I like the large cast of characters, it’s really fun.

M: The balance has been improved in SSFIV. The damage overall has been reduced so there is less chance that accidental mistakes will decide a match. Games are more consistent.
