SSF4: AE Change Notes from Daigo & Acqua

USD over at NeoGAF translated an interview with Daigo on Famitsu, and some tweets from Ibuki player Acqua, with both players talking about changes and general thoughts on the game so far. A photo surfaced of the pre-fight screen from the game as well - check it out to the left there.

DAIGO NOTES

-He thinks Yun will be really good, though Zangief will be a tough match-up for him. Hasn't played much Yang, but thinks that Genei Jin will be a big difference between the two characters. 

-Even though Fei lost the invincibility on HK Chicken Wing, but with the better normals and all the tools he still has available (Rekka, Tenshin, etc.), and Chun, Honda, and Balrog getting nerfs, he says that Fei is probably the strongest of the old characters.

-Yun, Yang, and Fei will be top class in AE.

STARBASE ARCADE: One & Done SSF4 Tournament - Live Stream Tonight - 10PM PST

We're back this week with a proper SSF4 Singles Tournament at Starbase Arcade! Actually, I take that back --there's nothin' proper about any of this! We got something really cool lined up tonight with a new tournament concept: ONE & DONE!

LIVE STREAM: iPLAYWINNER AT JUSTIN.TV

This is a single elimination tournament with a bit of a twist. Considering the brutal format, each match will be 3/5 rounds -- so while it's ONE MATCH, single elimination, players will get an extra round or two to download their opponent and adapt. This prevents any sort of counter picking and puts everything on the line each time a player steps up to the plate. Grand Finals will be 2/3 matches, 3/5 rounds. 

FOLLOW IPDUB: TWITTER | FACEBOOK 

You can catch the action live at around 10PM PST on our JustinTV Channel, with some FT5 matches being streamed a little earlier in the night. Find more details on the SRK Thread.

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!

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.
