MrDustKicka over at youtube has posted a combo exhibition video. This combo video shows what multiple characters can do with big hitting combos. All combos were done without a tool assist. All these non tool assisted videos still amaze me on how you can sit in the training room and learn all these combos with a little time.

If you were hoping to see Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition at New York: Comic-Con Yoshinori Ono just mentioned that the game will not make an appearance at the event. This shouldn't really surprise anyone, and with it being Comic-Con, you can expect Marvel vs Capcom 3 to steal the spotlight anyway.
The first day of qualifiers for GodsGarden Online 2 wrapped up last night with some really high level, intense matches all around. I was able to catch a lot of it, watching some great sets between players such as Tokido vs Kindevu, but unfortunately couldn't stay up for the whole thing. If you're like me and ended up missing some of the later matches, you should definitely check out the last set between Daigo and Mago. I wont spoil the outcome but I'll say this one really comes down to the wire.

If you ended up checking out Desk's previous combo video, you'll see it starts off with a glitched dummy and if you're anything like me you're probably wondering how the hell he ended pulling that off. Check out this video that gives the full breakdown on how to recreate the glitch via the Recoding feature in Training Mode. Full video after the break!
Rajman has created a very nice video showing some setups for Akuma's Raging Demon in Super Street Fighter 4. These setups were captured when used in actual matches, so it isn't theory-fighter.
If you play as Akuma, learn what you can do. If you play one of the characters shown falling victim to it, learn what not to do.We will add this as a Community Video on Akuma's page in our Super SF4 guide.

Capcom has officially announced that they will begin releasing the new alternate costumes for Super Street Fighter 4 starting on October 26th.
The costumes will release in packs, as with previous costume release cycles. While the schedule for release may vary slightly between the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, we expect them to be very close. Hopefully we will get a complete release schedule soon.

Gametrailers uploaded an interview with Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma. Some of topics include how the game was recieved at TGS by fans, implementing X-23, the different modes in the game (including a "Mission" mode which in the context he used sounds like a combo trials) and his liking the idea of doing a crossover not just between two companies but between many companies.

This is the first entry into a series of articles I hope to pump out consistently that breaks down the match-up between two characters. With Sagat being my main, I'll start with his match-ups and move onto other characters. Of course, with any match-up there are plenty of details and nuances that can be player specific, so post up in the comments if you feel I forgot anything.
There have been problems associated with the DLC character Valkenhayn R. Hellsing and the general gameplay patch that goes alongside his release. The Xbox 360 release of the character and patch have been delayed, with ETA unknown. The patch for the Playstation 3 version also has issues as well.
Arc System Works has issued a statement about "the Mystery of the Missing Valkenhayn DLC". Read it in its entirety after the jump!
