Ryan "Prodigal Son" Hart Post- SVB 2010 Interview Part 2

Hart: "Well I can’t please everyone and I should just accept that. Winning against Daigo has not changed anything about me. I went into the match knowing I could win and I could lose. When I won I was happy, I had the support of everyone and that really helped me. Now the match is over, I’m still me and Daigo is still Daigo. Nothing has changed, Daigo is still the beast."Ryan "Prodigal Son" Hart has posted a part two to his post-Super Vs Battle 2010 interview.  Ryan took 2nd place and defeated Daigo "The Beast" Umehara, who placed 3rd. This second interview is interesting in that it elaborates more on his loss to Luffy086 (which I personally am glad that he did, as the first was vague on details), about people percieving him as "arrogant", and more. Check out the full interview below:

Well, it's been a little while since the first post SVB interview, so now it's time to go over some new issues which have come up over the recent days. Players worldwide have expressed their thoughts and feelings regarding the match with Daigo and also the post interview, even Japan and America have made observations:

1. So, it is now a fact that you defeated Daigo at SVB 20-X, how does this make you feel?

I am of course pleased with the win. And it’s been really nice to have people congratulate me but in my opinion Daigo was not on his best game. Just watch the match, he appeared different somehow, I don’t know what was going through his mind.

Mortal Kombat Hands-On Impressions; Playstation 3 May Have Exclusive Stage Designed for 3D

Hands-on impressions for Mortal Kombat are surfacing out of the Gamestop Manager's Conference 2010, courtesy of TRMK.  Information has also come out of the conference regarding pre-order bonus for the game!

Here's an impression of the general gameplay. After the jump you will find info on the game's (tentative, as it can change) pre-order bonuses. If you want to get some impressions on a few of the characters, visit TRMK for more info and some photos from the event.

According to TRMK, there was apparently talk that the Playstation 3 version might get an exclusive stage made for 3D.  It was previously revealed that this game would make use of the stereoscopic 3D that Sony is making a big push for lately.

General Impressions:

The game plays soooo smooth. And its very fast, almost seemed too fast at first. Its like the RUN button is always on. It's not clunky like MK vs DC was. I asked Ed if Capcom made it, I don't think he liked that comment. LOL

Combos just seem to flow out so naturally, the possiblities for them seem endless. I won my match by using a simple standing double punch into a fireball juggle, then shadow kick. (that seems like a good 40%) Ed said the combo damage will be toned down drastically in the next build.


Seems you can
use your breaker to snap out of Scorpion's spear before you are combo'd/hit. Reptile does more damage while invisible. Also saw, when Sektor vs Sektor, the homing missles cancel each other out if done by both players at the same time.

Also saw a Kung Lao player throw his hat, teleport kick opponent into oncoming hat, teleport again, into a 3 hit combo, finished off by a hat throw juggle!
That got applause from the crowd.

Mortal Kombat: IGN Interviews Ed Boon. Expect your Favorite Characters from MK I - III to Return.

Ed Boon: "we're coming back with a vengeance. As aggressively as possible in all those categories that I talked about. To me personally, I'm confident that the people who play are going to walk away totally psyched to buy this game. "NetherRealm creative director and series co-creator Ed Boon was interviewed by IGN.  The interview hits pretty much the same topics that have been covered before. It talks about the Mortal Kombat legacy, finding a balance which will please both casual and hardcore fans, and so forth. The game will be playable to the public for the first time at PAX so hopefully a lot of new info and impressions come out of that event. Here's an interesting bit though:

IGN: No, no. I don't want to hear the announced [characters]. I want to hear the one's you're revealing right here.

Ed Boon: Well, I wish I had the OK to give you that information. I can tell you this though, and I've said this a number of times, this is in some ways a retelling of the Mortal Kombat I-II-III storyline. I think for the most part, if you have a favorite character from Mortal Kombat I, II and III, there's a very good chance that they're going to be in the game. 

I think that the new Mortal Kombat being a retelling of the story of not just one but all three of the first games is quite interesting. The part about which characters to expect in the game is equally exciting for Mortal Kombat fans.  Hit the link above or the source link for the full interview.

Yun & Yang coming to Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade? New Hints revealed in Arcadia Magazine 

Azrael over at SRK posted up a few photos of the new Arcadia Magazine which includes some of the first hints of the additional characters coming to the arcade version of Super Street Fighter 4. This isn't the first time this image has surfaced, but it was originally assumed to be fake -- these photos seem to prove otherwise. You can clearly see a skateboard and a pair or rollerblades, which are staples accessories for both Yun & Yang.

The official Capcom blog mentioned that they would release hints on the upcoming characters this week. We'll have to wait and see if the Saikyo Blog will offer more details or simply the same silhouettes contained in Arcadia Magazine. Stay tuned!

ScrewAttack: Top 10 Worst Mortal Kombat Fatalities

 

With so much hype lately around the new Mortal Kombat going back to it's roots, lets not forget the series numerous stumbles along the way. With so many ridiculous -- and sometimes straight up lazy -- Fatatlities, Babalities, Animalities it's a tall order to list just the Top 10 but ScrewAttack did a really good job here. My favorite? Number 8!

Thanks to IMNEXTONLINE for the heads up on this one.

GameTrailers Interview with Ryota Niitsuma

I swear Ryota Niitsuma is interviewed more than any other video game producer out there, and this particular interview doesn't stray too far from previous ones. Not too much new info here but if you're a little behind on MVC3 news it's worth checking out.

Frank West coming to Marvel vs Capcom 3?

Most of you probably saw the alleged C. Viper silhouette from a few days ago, and it looks like we have another clue as to who is up net for the Marvel vs Capcom 3 roster -- Frank West. This image is taken from the official Marvel vs Capcom 3 website, and each outline is now labeled to give everyone a better idea what we're looking at here. To the right it appears to be a man holding a camera, and taking the TVC roster and the addition of Viewitful Joe into consideration, Frank West making an appearance is a fairly safe bet. That said, we wont know for sure until Capcom makes an official announcement so stay tuned!

SDTekken Interviews FightingGM

SDTekken has scored an interview with FightingGM, one of the best Tekken 6 players in the country.  In this interview he answers questions submitted by the community! Here's a sample and hit the link above or the source link for the rest:

Tekkenlover:
What’s is ur main reason using lee as ur main? can you elaborate on explaining on some of the good move he has, despite the online lag do you play online? If so how much

I use lee cause i love his style and his elegance and smoothness. I like them pretty boy smooth characters that are quick and stylish and have some class. At the time in 5.0 he was considered very weak and a underused character and i watched a cool combo video from a long island player called sayde which got me really interested in using lee. I basically wanted to make a character who wasn;t known and considered trash known and respected. Also i do not play online at all. Im on wireless network so it be impossible for me to play online.

GamerTrailers Interviews Ed Boon About Taking Mortal Kombat Back to its Roots

Gametrailers interviewed NetherRealm's creative director and series co-creator Ed Boon about Mortal Kombat.Ed talks about taking the series back to its roots for this latest entry.

More interestingly is that he admits that this Mortal Kombat will be the first one to consciously cater to the hardcore tournament player. If it works out, it is certainly welcome to those who want more than to just trade uppercuts and would like to see the game stay on tournament scenes around the country longer than previous efforts.

FLAREgamer Interviews Joey Ansah about Street Fighter: Legacy Short Film

The Ryu from the Street Fighter: Legacy short film is already more accurate than Hollywood's efforts with characters.FLAREgamer has a rather interesting interview with Josh Ansah, the creator of the Street Fighter: Legacy short film.  If you haven't seen this short film yet, the video is embedded if you click through to the rest of the article.  It is far and away a better reflection on the series than modern big box office Street Fighter moves have been. Here's a sample from the interview:

It's easy to imagine an ideal live action adaptation of a game, but it's nearly impossible to make it actually happen. What made you take up the challenge?

Joey: Well, I think out of frustration of all the very disappointing game movies coming out, I felt justice had to be done. Films like 300, Watchmen, and Christopher Nolan's Batman films really show that you can bring loved comic characters to life in live action and make it work. Zack Snyder, in particular, with 300 created a surreal looking live action world in which the larger than life comic characters would work and be believable.

I love martial arts and have dedicated my life to it, thus I have big plans for showcasing my vision and abilities in cinema. My work in the Bourne Ultimatum was a small showcase. I wanted my next martial arts related project to be something I loved, controlled and had a vision for. I love and know the SF universe inside and out. I know SF can be done right in live action and has the potential to be the most epic martial arts movie/series project ever done. If people could see the vision in my head for what I have provisionally planned they'd be hysterical. My job is to continue to bring those visions out of my head and into tangible reality. A great team of talented individuals formed to help support and execute my vision for the promo, and many of them would carry forward to any future Legacy projects.
