Today on Live on Three, djWheat, Slasher and SirScoots will be talking with BLG Filipino Champ about his recent win over Daigo Umehara at SoCal Regionals. They'll also be giving live updates for the Canada Cup and talk a bit aobut the recent drama between EventHubs.com and SonicHurricane.com. Check it out around 4PM EST on the USTREAM embed below.
This edition of the IPW podcast is a special one. We've brought Catalyst_nc from Eventhubs to respond to some of the backlash against his site that was initially prompted by a post made by Maj of Sonic Hurricane. Since then the issue has became a hot topic on numerous fighting game forums.
Glenn over at GYT posted this image up on twitter and it pretty much speaks for itself. Awesome artstyle for the comic, kind of reminds me of Akira. Hell, half these images that have been popping up over the past week make Tokido look like Tetsuo!
Is the Akuma pose the zenith of North American tournament hype or is it just the beginning with Canada Cup this weekend and NCR8 the next?
UPDATE: This was drawn by Inocamellia. Thanks to Toypop on NeoGAF for the heads up.
The second Mortal Kombat stage bio video from NetherRealm Studios is here, and it happens to be for one of my absolute favorite stages in the series, the Living Forest. Like the previous bio, this vid gives some really cool background fiction on the stage. The fiction for these stages is pretty good, and in my opinion adds to the game's atmosphere.
If you aren't interested in background fiction, watch the video for the new Mortal Kombat footage within! Check it out after the jump!
Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada uploaded some new Tekken and Soul Project wallpapers. He has been sneaking these pictures in on his Twitter a lot lately. We have put these pictures into our image gallery along with the other Tekken and Soul Project wallpapers!
Koogy over at BROKENTIER is set to release a new line of shirts and pre-orders start today at 12PM PST! Better act fast though because you can only pre-order up until November 21st. These shirts are the second series of the Fall 2010 collection and represent the games we play, places we go and the values we live by as fighting game players.
The European release date for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift has been set for December 3rd. The news came today in the form of an announcement on the official BlazBlue Facebook page. It also stated that those who have pre-ordered the Fans Edition will receive an exclusive limited edition Taokaka mouse mat as a thank you for continued support and patience. There are still a very few copies of the Fan Edition available due to some cancellations, so if you'd like to pick that up visit the Zen United Store.
Read on for the full announcement, a larger picture of the Fans Edition's contents and a rundown of what it includes.
Most of you have probably heard about the upcoming EVO Online tournament, where the winner will receive a free trip to EVO next year! What's cool though, is that on top of all that, the champion will have a unique XBL title available to them for online play! That's right, if you end up winning the entire thing, your SSF4 tag will read "Ruler of the Ring"! Pretty cool stuff, and definitely not something I expected to see out of this.
Gamespot just released a new trailer featuring Sub Zero in Mortal Kombat 9.
This trailer shows the hardship Sub Zero went through with his brothers death. He is using revenge to take over his brothers name and having no remorse on the person who killed his brother.

For the lot of you that probably don't know who I am, my name is Harrison from Sonoma, CA. I am regularly at StarBase Arcade every Wednesday night which IPW streams and I have been playing Cody since the release of Super Street Fighter 4. Despite 99% of the Cody players out there who have given up, I have stuck with him since he fits my play style and look -- white! LOL
Below is a breakdown on the Cody vs Chun-Li match which I believe to be 5/5. Hit me up in the comments if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them!
Do you have your own Match-up Breakdown you'd like to see on the front page of iPlayWinner? Copy and paste this template and send all entries over to firstname.lastname@example.org
IMNEXTONLINE posted up what we assume to be a leaked screenshot of the character select screen for Mortal Kombat 9. To the bottom left there, you'll see Sonya Blade who has yet to be officially announced. With the recent announcement of Jax, this isn't exactly anything too earth shattering but long time fans of the series will sure to be happy to see her make the cut.
AndriaSang is reporting that the final location test for BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II is set for next week, with the game itself being released in Japanese arcades come December 9th. This update brings the arcade version of BlazBlue: CS up to spec with the home release, including all the DLC characters.
For all of you hungry for more Platinum the Trinity footage, we'll be sure to update with any videos that happen to surface from the location test so stay tuned!
1UP.com is reporting that the sales of some DLC items for Super Street Fighter 4 have been suspended on Xbox Live but not PSN due to technical difficulties. Sales of the costume packs on XBL will resume come November 16th.
The items that have been taken down are: Ultra Costume Catalog 1, Ultra Challengers Pack 1 and the Ultra Shoryuken Pack. We'll be sure to update you guys on anymore developments regarding the XBL DLC sales.
A lot of you guys may have seen this interview with BLG Filipino Champ on SRK yesterday, but if you haven't it's definitely worth checking out. Ryan talks about his win over Daigo at SoCal Regionals and much more. Oh yeah, is that John Choi's roommate I hear? Check out the video below!
You'd never see it coming, your favorite japanese Akuma player, Tokido, hits up BlazBlue, streamrollin' the American front one by one! Commentated by none other than Kennyon, your Socal Litchi, in top tier Japanese! Get hype!
Yo, whats up iPlayWinner dudes! Wanted to give you guys a heads up that we have a real serious tournament tonight at Starbase Arcade. This is a 2v2 SSF4 tournament that of course will be POKEMAN STYLE! Top players such as Vangief and Filipino Champ will be in the house, and Magus and Haunts on the mic to keep you fools entertained. We'll have plenty of dope beats playing through out the night too so be sure not to miss this one!
If you're in NorCal and won't be there, you're a complete bum -- that's a fact -- but if you aren't in the area, be sure to tune into our USTREAM Channel around 9PM PST to catch all the madness. We'll probably go till about 2AM PST so you might want to get your excuse for skipping work or school tomorrow ready now!
For more information on this tournament, check out the official thread on the Shoryuken Forums!
Pre-orders for TRIUMVIR's new Street Fighter Alpha III Collection starts today! Act fast because the shirts will only be available for pre-order up until November 24th.

1UP.com is reporting via Kotaku Japan that the arcade version of Super Street Fighter 4 is set to release on December 16th. This isn't really earth shattering news due to the fact that Capcom has mentioned many times that the game was slated for mid-December.
What is interesting though is that Kotaku Japan is speculating that much like Akuma in the arcade version of Street Fighter 4, more characters may be revealed through a time release system. There have been rumors floating around of additional characters outside of Yun & Yang being added to the game, though none of us have heard anything, even with the game so close to being released.

So, you want to see something really cheap? Many of you may be aware of this, but SCR was the first time I've seen this combo. Marn pulls this off with Dante by using the X-Factor after a corner combo, which as you'll see will kill off one character in a single combo in the video below.
