HELP GET STREET FIGHTER 4 INTO THE MLG PRO CIRCUIT - SIGN THE PETITION

While none of us truly know the reason for Street Fighter 4 not being included in MLG's Pro Circuit just yet, MLG's Co-Founder posted this video asking for everyone's help by signing an online petition. He mentions there has been a lot of feedback on the issue, but needs a large number of users all in one place to help him continue to fight for Street Fighter 4 to be in the Pro Circuit.  

Here is the link for the online petition and check out the video below for more information.

Makoto, Ibuki & Dudley Walkthroughs with Justin Wong via GameTrailers

Want even *more* Super SF4 tonight? Well, grab your popcorn for more videos! This time Gametrailers has walkthroughs of Makoto, Ibuki and Dudley with none other than Justin Wong! Check them out!

You will see that a lot of their Third Strike moveset is still intact, but there are also plenty of new changes to they way each of the characters play as well. One major example of this is Justin demonstrates how Makoto cannot connect another Karakusa after a connected Hayate like she could in Third Strike. That said, she can now cancel from her standing medium kick into a Hayate which is an interesting addition to her ground game.

Capcom Elaborates A Bit on Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars Sales

 

Earlier this week, Capcom's Christian Svensson gave us a clue about Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars' sales performance in an interview with Gamasutra. He said in the interview:

"And, you know, we're a couple weeks in right now, and we've been doing re-orders. We're not at all dissatisfied with the sales at this point. We are cautiously optimistic that it's going to have long legs..."

When pressed for more clarification on if this statement means that sales of the game were positive or not by a reader of Capcom Unity, he replied with the following:

"It's a solid single, we'd like to see stretch to a double."

For those who don't know (we have a lot of international readers), it's a baseball reference. He is saying that the game has done well, but they would like to see if it can do even better.

This is good news for fans of the game, as Capcom has stated several times that positive sales could lead to potential downloadable content for the game and/or a sequel.

Japanese Official Super Street Fighter 4 Blog Entry: Hakan Reveal Date on March 11

Dhalsim waits patiently for the coming of Hakan

Azrael provided a short summary of the latest Japanese Super SF4 blog. Why just a summary? There's not much really interesting in this post, that's why.

The only real news is that apparently the final unrevealed character will be announced next Thursday (in Japan)!

Thanks again to Azrael for the translation. Here's the summary:

-- National Tournament will be streamed live through Nico Nico video.

-- The final spot in the national tournament was reserved for the winner of the last tournament - in other words, Iyo. Iyo has a team picked but who they are aren't revealed yet.

-- There will be a special update next Thursday 3/11, and the official site will update as well.

She closes the blog with "Well then, everyone oil up and let's meet again on Thursday!"

KOF SKY STAGE

 

So this is slightly off-topic, but I figured some of our readers may have an interest in this. SNK-Playmore has released an overhead shooter based on their King of Fighters series called KOF SKYSTAGE in Japan. In this game you control characters such as Iori, Kyo and Mai, flying through stages as you shoot down enemies using the characters signature attacks. Any of you who have played Ikaruga or Mars Matrix, it's pretty much the same deal.

 

Anyway, lets be real for a second: what is SNK thinking? I'm sure the game is entertaining, but obviously a game like this takes money and man-power to create and they could be using these same resources to improve their King of Fighters fighting game franchise. That said, perhaps these shooter games generate more revenue over the long run in Japan? Who knows really, but here is a trailer for the game itself, and be sure to check out their official site for more images from the game.

JAPANESE SF4 CASUALS - PPN (Dhalsim) vs Daigo (Ryu)

A casual match between Dhalsim player PPN and a Ryu player some of you may have heard of, Daigo, showed up earlier today on LordAborigine's YouTube Channel. Anyone reading this who plays a Shoto knows that a solid Dhalsim can be one of the more frustrating match ups out there for a plasma chucker. Could a Dhalsim player be the key to taking Daigo out at EVO2K10?  Or is Daigo simply testing new techniques in preparation for the upcoming Japanese National Tournament?

EXCLUSIVE EVO2K10 TEASER FEAT. DAIGO "THE BEAST" UMEHARA

One of the bigger topics lighting up message boards and interviews across the internet is with Super Street Fighter 4 apparently not coming to arcades anytime soon, will the Japanese take the game the as seriously? The EVO Staff over at SRK landed an exclusive interview with Daigo "The Beast" Umehara saying his will "bring a stronger style" than what you saw in 2009. So I guess that seals the deal -- arcade Super or not, the Japanese players are still going to bring their "A" game to Evo! Wow, if this doesn't get you hype for EVO 2K10 nothing will!

Also, registration for EVO2K10 is live, so if you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so!

LEVEL UP YOUR GAME - TEKKEN 6 TUTORIALS

MYK and Rip over at IAMTEKKEN posted up Episode Two of Level Up Your Game which is by far and away the best Tekken 6 tutorials on the web! In the first part of this episode they go over punishing which is not only essential for 3D games, but 2D games as well. So even if you're not a huge Tekken fan, be sure to watch these series and see if you can apply the concepts to other games as well.

Also, be sure to subscribe to their YouTube Channel in that these guys are just getting started and will have a ton of new content in the future.

SONICHURRICANE.COM TALKS TURBO SPEED MECHANICS

Maj over at SonicHurricane.com put together a real interesting article about Turbo Speed Mechanics and how they affect framerates in Street Fighter games. I'm sure most of you are familiar with his Bi-Weekly SF4 Combo videos, and this article sheds a little light on how framerates can make similar combo videos impossible in some older games.

Increasing the speed setting does not increase the number of frames shown per second, but rather causes internal frames to skip at regular intervals. At speed two, 1 frame skips for every 6 frames shown. At speed three, which is the default speed, 1 frame skips for every 4 frames shown. 1 frame skips for every 3 frames shown at speed four and 1 frame skips for every 2 frames shown at the maximum speed of five.

GAMER DAILY NEWS INTERVIEW WITH SETH KILLIAN ON SUPER STREET FIGHTER 4

GamerDailyNews published an interview with Seth Killian today, asking him a number of questions about Super Street Fighter 4. Some interesting questions come up but truth be told if you've been reading the Japanese Developer Blogs and what-not there isnt a ton of new information in here.

Seth does touch on the new Online Modes though, something I am personally looking forward too considering the current matchmaking in Street Fighter 4 leaves a lot to be desired. What I am most curious about when it comes to online play is the difference between their upcoming Tournmanet Mode DLC and the current Championship Mode we have now in Street Fighter 4. 

Here is a small excerpt of the interview, be sure to check out GameDailyNews for all the rest.

GDN: Can you tell us more about the new play modes, such as Team Battle, Tournament mode, and so on? Any other modes you’d like to comment on?

Capcom: My favorite is definitely “Endless Battle” which is basically what people had been asking for with the request for lobbies. Up to 8 people can get together in an online room and queue up to play, in the winner-stays, loser to the back of the line style of the arcade. If you’re waiting to play, you can still watch the match currently being fought, and talk about it with the other spectators, so it stays fun. Other than that, I plan to spend a lot of time in the Replay Channel, where you can watch (and record!) other matches being played online, share favorites with friends, etc.

We finally updated the Super SF4 Confirmed Features page.  We added all the new characters that have been announced, a few little bits of info, a screenshot of the 5th new stage in the game, and made a few other tweaks.

If we missed something, let us know and we'll get it added.

I will be updating BlazBlue: Continuum Shift's Confirmed Features tomorrow.

STREET FIGHTER III: THIRD STRIKE VIDEO RUSHDOWN

So with the "innanet goin' nutz" about Third Strike characters being included in Street Fighter 4, I thought it would be a good idea to post up some videos of high level 3s videos for people to check out. 

This first one comes from TheShend, who if you don't know by now is pretty much the #1 source for 3s videos on the web. Seriously, this guy has relentlessly uploaded  3s videos for years now and shows no signs of slowing down. I'd say subscribe to his YouTube channel, but chances are, if you're reading this and you're a true 3s fan you've done that a long time ago.

The team to watch in this video is RUN&GUN composed of Genki (Alex) and Vanao(Ryu). I had a chance to play Vanao while I was in Japan last summer (he roasted me) and this guy seriously has the most ridiculous (in a good way) Ryu I've ever seen. I think he plays Super Art III Ryu pretty much exclusively, and in this video you'll see he uses Denjin Hadouken at pretty much any opportunity he gets. Also, his partner, Genki is no slouch either with his Alex tearing through a number of opponents and uphill battles.

JAPANESE SF4 NATIONAL TOURNAMENT QUALIFIERS - DASHIO (VI) VS RADIOWAVE (SA)

I'm spending some late night hours browsing through LordAborigione's YouTube Channel and came across this great match between Dashio and Radiowave. Really incredible first round with Radiowave making great use of the Focus Attack to tear through Dashio's Burning Kick mix ups. Will Dashio's impeccable execution be enough to come out victorious? 

Also, if you're curious as to how the qualifiers are shaping up, Oichi over at VersusCity put together a great list of the current teams and character standings. He makes an interesting observation that the only team without a Sagat, is Dream Team B of Makoto (Vega), Sutoraikun (Ken), M Jyou (Dhalsim).

Who am I rooting for? None of the underdogs, that's for sure -- Umehara, Bonchan and Yu all the way! Bonchan is by far and away my favorite Sagat player.

Current Qualifiers:
Dream Team A: Umehara (Ryu), Bonchan (Sagat), Yu (Akuma)
Dream Team B: Makoto (Vega), Sutoraikun (Ken), M Jyou (Dhalsim)
Tokyo Qualifier 1: Shiro (Abel), Ojisanboy (Sagat), Kyabetsu (Viper)
Touhoku Qualifer: Mago (Sagat), Tokido (Akuma), Akimo (Honda)
Kansai Qualifier 1: Y24 (Chun), Pie (Sagat), Umechin (Ryu)
Kyushu Qualifer: RF (Sagat), Kindevu (Rufus), Momochi (Akuma)
Chubu Qualifier: Eita (Akuma), Rikuson (Sagat) and Maeda Taison (Balrog)
Hokkaido Qualifier: Vega Curry (Sagat), Dashio (Viper), Aojiru Guile (Balrog)
Kansai Qualifier 2: MDR (Rufus), Hisshou (Sagat), Pamyu (Balrog)
