Marvel vs Capcom 3: Shuma-Gorath Gameplay Footage

A video showcasing gameplay for Shuma-Gorath has surfaced!  This character, along with Jill Valentine, will become available as DLC on March 15th.  The gameplay featured in the video was likely taken by hacking into the Marvel vs Capcom 3 disc, so what you see here may not completely reflect the final product.  However, it does give you a good indication of his moveset, some of his hyper combos, and so forth.

I've personally had a soft spot for this strange character since MvC2, and I just love how he is animated this video. This footage comes via bK2iNsAn3x's youtube channel.

Desk posted a little teaser video for some of the upcoming video content you can expect, and it's exposes a few little -- no, really big bugs. Haggar's floating in the air, Ryu's standing in the air as if this were a KoF game, and a whole bunch of other glitchy nonsense is shown throughout the preview.

Get hype for floating air pipe, I guess?

Ono Tweets: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Announcement Expected After 3DS Launch

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono, the producer for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, has tweeted that we can expect some kind of announcement regarding a home version after the launch of the Nintendo 3DS.  Super Street Fighter 4: 3D Edition is one of the platform's launch titles, so it makes sense that Ono would concentrate efforts on getting that game out the door first before making further announcements.

Stay tuned!  For those who want to read the tweets in question, you can find them in the article or you can hit Ono's twitter here.

If you played some Marvel vs Capcom 3 recently you may have noticed that you were asked to download a patch.  This patch is simply to set the game up for the upcoming DLC content.  That is why you may notice a new "Checking Downloadable Content" message as the game gets started.

To our knowledge there are no fixes or other additions made to the game.  The first DLC will be available on March 1st, starting with new costumes. It's just around the corner!

Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Was Made Purposely Unbalanced Says Ono

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono made some interesting comments to Japanese gaming magazing Weekly Famitsu in the latest issue.  He stated that while the home version of Super Street Fighter 4 is designed to be balanced, that the arcade version is not. Here's what Andriasang translated from the magazine:

The home version of Super SFIV was made with extremely good balance, explained Ono. The balance was done in such a way that there's no one overly powerful character.

Arcade Edition, on the other hand, has some characters who were purposely made strong. The reason this was done is because Ono feels that having such a character helps to build community and competitive spirit.

Ono did not comment on whether Arcade Edition will find its way into the home release.

Gamepro Review of the Mad Catz Marvel vs Capcom 3 Tournament Edition Fightstick

If you've been keeping tabs on the fighting game scene for the last few years, you've undoubtedly heard of the Mad Catz Tournament Edition series of sticks and know how good they are.  However, with the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3 there are many players out there who are new to fighting games and may be wondering what the fuss is all about.  If you are among them, Gamepro has put together a pretty good review of the Marvel vs Capcom 3 TE, with two of their fighting game experts giving their thoughts.

Here's a sample, head over to Gamepro to read the review!

Will Chu: Compared to past sticks that I've used, this one is probably the best right out of the package. I had to modify the other sticks I've owned to get them to fit my preferences, but this Mad Catz unit works like a dream right out of the box.

Frame-Advantage: Ode to Chinatown Fair

Frame-Avantage put together a tribute to Chinatown Fair with interviews from CTF regulars such as Arturo, NerdJosh, Spooky and even Henry Cen himself. It's a good, but sad look at what could be the very last day of Chinatown Fair -- what many regulars consider to be home.

As someone who practically lived in arcades for years and years, it's a sad to think one of America's top arcades will be going away. Shout outs to Henry Cen for keeping the NY scene going strong for so long. CTF, you'll be missed.

Check out Ode to Chinatown Fair below.
