Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition Changes for Zangief, Sagat, Dan & Dudley

The Arcadia Magazine list of changes detailed a lot of new buffs and nerfs for a number of different characters, but now the official SSF4: AE Development Blog is coming at us with even more! For the most part, all the characters below are getting some pretty nice buffs, though we'll have to see with some attacks -- such as Zangief EX Banishing Flat not knocking down -- how it will affect the characters over all gameplan.

IPW TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Are Tier Lists Created Too Early?

There's no denying that tier lists are an integral part of the fighting game community. Every player in the community has their own opinions on how strong their character is in relation to others. It's a topic of debate that not one day passes where someone in the community is talking about it.

That being said, do we as a community create tier lists far too early? Even us here at iPlayWinner released a SSF4 Tier List just a few months after the game was released. How long should we wait before we begin to rank characters and look at match-ups? Do you feel this is detrimental to new players who simply want to learn a character they enjoy, but are discouraged after seeing said characters on the tier list?

This is a great rundown, which may open your eyes to areas of your game you can improve, even if they don't naturally come to you.

Arcadia Magazine published a list of changes for many characters in Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition -- some new, some we already know about, and a few that are kind of ambiguous.

Thanks to Reno at VersusCity.net, USD and PopOnArrival at NeoGAF and The_Theorical on SRK for these translations.

Daigo Umehara (Ken) vs T SRAI (Blanka)

Many of you were impressed by the T SRAI video we posted up recently, but others had your doubts about these Blanka tactics versus top players. If you're one of the non-believers, you should check out this video of T SRAI playing versus Daigo, though I'll say his playstyle is slightly more reserved in this video than the montage video. 

Thanks again to YogaFlame24 for the upload.

Daigo Umehara Exhibition Matches from Kuwait

You guys may have heard that Daigo travelled to Kuwait recently and they held a series of exhibition matches, which were more or less a series of organized money matches.

Also, if you want to learn more about the scene in Kuwait, check out this iPlayWinner original feature on White Tower Arcade, that gives the low down on their scene -- a great read for sure!

Gootecks & Mike Ross Excellent Adventures Needs Your Help

Are you guys fans of CrossCounter and the Excellent Adventure spin-off series? If so, you'll probably want to check out what Gootecks and Mike Ross have planned next. They are trying to go big, by bringing in players from all over the world, and continue their travels, documenting their adventures along the way. The end goal here is to get this sort of thing on Television or some similar type of medium. This may sound like a far fetched idea but it's happened with other projects like this, outside of the Fighting Game Community.

T SRAI Blanka Montage

It's no secret that Blanka players get a lot of hate. With his unorthodox play style and unpredictable move set, Blanka's of all skill levels can be a serious pain in the ass. Single hits, slides, and rarely an actual combo, who wants to go up against a character like that? 

Or perhaps they're just playing Blanka wrong. After watching this video montage of T SRAI  by YogaFlame24 I think that may be the case because I don't think anyone would mind losing to a Blanka like this. I've studied Blanka enough to know that some of the links in this video are extremely difficult to pull off in a real match. You guys are in for a real treat, but don't go off and try to main Blanka after checking out the video -- leave it to the professionals.

3 Green Bars Street Fighter Travel Log Episodes 1 & 2

In the frenzy for prepping for NorCal Regionals, I missed the first episode of 3 Green Bars. Thankfully, the director CptMunta sent over an email reminding me to check it out, and that a new episode has just been released. These are both really cool in that they will give you a look into scenes you may not be aware of, showing you that the passion for the game is the same worldwide.

Super SF4 (Super) Helpful Match-Up Videos: Abel vs Adon

TEC Sol T over at Shadowloo.com is at it again with another boss video showing you how to counter a ton of Adon's moves with Abel! I'll say I'm a little jealous because this is an idea I had for a video series sometime ago but never got around to making it happen. That said, they did a better job on this than I ever could, so be sure to check it out, even if you're not an Abel player! Tons of great info that can be applied with many characters in the game, not just Abel.

NCR8: SSF4 Teams Grand Finals feat. EG Marn/Alex Valle/Mike Ross vs Floe/EG Ricky Ortiz/Daigo Umehara

Whew! This one took a while to put together but it was well worth it as it has some of the biggest names in Super Street Fighter 4 battling it out all in one place. Daigo through most of the tournament let his teammates do a lot of the work, but in this set he had to step up to the plate and make it happen. A really good set from both teams, well worth your time -- will watch again. A+++. 

Also, this will probably be my last NCR video update for the site, but I'll be uploading more to YouTube so be sure to subscribe to our channel to stay up to date!
