Super Street Fighter 4 makes Time Magazine's Top 10 Games of 2010 and Wins X-Play's Fighting Game of the Year

Super Street Fighter 4 has won X-Play's fighting game of the year award.  This probably won't surprise you, but it is still deserved!

What's even more impressive is that Super Street Fighter IV has also made it to Time Magazine's top 10 games of 2010!  This year there were many excellent, high profile games released and it's great to see a fighting game garner a top ten spot on a mainstream media outlet. 

Congratulations to Super Street Fighter 4!

Playerjun52 - Flashy Ken FTW

This week, I thought I'd put the spotlight on my favorite Ken player, Playerjun52, according to many Ken players, THE top Ken player out there right now, but one thing is for sure, Playerjun52 puts on a great show and never disappoints, he's got the flashiest Ken i've ever seen and the execution to pull it off in matches on a consistent basis. He is one of only two Ken players with A+ Rank in Asia, the other being Momochi.

IPW TOPIC OF THE WEEK: How Do You Feel About Online Fighting Game Tournaments?

This week's topic is disguised as somewhat of a survey, so take that as you will. That said, we're looking for everyone's thoughts and opinions on this topic so be sure to comment and let us know. 

Over the past six months to a year we've seen more and more online Fighting Game tournaments pop up. Everything from the iPW/AiF Tournament Series, GodsGarden Online in Japan and just recently EVO Online just to name a few. These online tournaments don't seem to receive as much publicity as traditional tournaments, but they are becoming more and more common place. 

As a player or even casual spectator, how do you feel about these online tournaments? Do you compete in them personally, and if so what improvements could be made to them more enjoyable? If you don't compete in them, what adjustments would have to be made for you to have a change of heart and jump into the action?

Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition Changes for Dhalsim, M. Bison, Akuma, T. Hawk & Adon 

The Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition Development Blog was updated once again today, detailing changes for Dhalsim, M. Bison, Akuma, T. Hawk and Adon. With the game set to release in Japanese arcades in less than a week, I am pretty sure this is the last update we'll see. That said, if I recall correctly, Seth Killian mentioned not every last change is mentioned in these Dev-Blog posts, so we may find out about other adjustments as players get more time with the game itself. 

Thanks once again to Street11 at SRK for the translation.
