Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, the second character to be added to BlazBlue: Continuum Shift via downloadable content, is scheduled to arrive on September 21st on the Playstation 3. However, the Xbox 360 release of the character has been delayed to a currently undisclosed date. The delay is due to an error with the patch where it would not load properly.
Detailed notes on the patch that will accompany Valkenhayn's release (scheduled for same day on PS3, delayed on Xbox 360) have also been released.

These three videos were captured by an attendee of the Marvel vs Capcom 3 stage show at Tokyo Game Show. The videos show matches between Capcom staff and feature the recently announced Wesker and Spider-Man as well as Tron Bonne and X-23. One player is also using the game's Simple Mode control scheme.
The videos are excellent quality, although there is an occassional head in the way. Thanks to Keits at SRK for the tip. All three videos are after the jump.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was just announced, so very little information about the game itself is available. However, SDTEKKEN gives us some basics about the game and a recent Gamepro article gives us some new bits of info.

A couple new videos of Marvel vs Capcom 3 surfaced recently from Takoyo Game Show. The first one is fairly short but has some great gameplay, and the second one has Seth Killian playing a number of different characters. Check out both videos after the break!
A few handful of new videos surfaced of Yun and Yang from the location test for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition held at Tougeki. A few of the clips are kind of short, but most of them are pretty solid, giving us a good look at both characters play style. Check out the videos after the break!

Check it out after the jump!
Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono tweeted a handful of new images that include both Yun and Yang. This is the start of what I expect to be an avalanche of new media for both characters. Check out all the images after the break!
iPlayWinner contributor LVC chimes in with his thoughts on the upcoming rerelease of Street Fighter III. This article is a little different from the past entries in that this is the opinion of a player who started at the tail end of the game's life span. Enjoy!
Street Fighter 3: Third Strike is a game I hold very close to my heart. I first started getting serious about fighters in the beginning of 2008 and by serious I mean playing with people in the arcades and actually learning the game. I moved to southern California mid 2008 for a brief period of time and I was treated to the wonderful arcades such as "Denjin Arcade", “Family Fun Arcade”, and “Arcade Infinity".
At the time my character of choice was Yun. I thought I had everything down and I was gonna show up to the arcade and do well. Boy, was I in for an eye opening experience.
So, I've been kicking around the idea of setting up a public blog on iPlayWinner where users with registered accounts can go willy nilly and post whatever they feel like.

How do you guys want to put your accounts to use?
A couple ideas I had:
