AKUMA'S ALTERNATE COSTUME

Alright, so Kunai has a nice thread on SRK (be sure to check his awesome C.Viper thread as well) with all the alternate costumes for Street Fighter 4. Today was the first day I saw Akuma's which I thought is a lot better than most of the other characters at this point. Hopefully the console release will have many more alternate costumes for each character.

NEWEST ADDITION TO STREET FIGHTER 4 ROSTER: GOUKEN

GOUKEN FAMITSU SCANOkay, here it is, the Famitsu scan showing Gouken as the new character in Street Fighter 4. All the hints dropped on the Japanese Street Fighter 4 blog have been pointing to this for weeks now. Not sure about a move list or exact date he will show up in the arcades, although I believe it is 26th of this month.

GAMESPOT: STREET FIGHTER SHOWDOWN (SF4 & HD REMIX)

Gamespot is hosting a Street Fighter tournament at the CBS center in San Francisco next week. Only a weeks notice, I know, but the prize money is $1000 and there is no entry fee. It is from 3pm-8pm which I'm sure will make it difficult for some people to get to, including myself!

KOTAKU: "GUY RIGS SF4 BOARD TO HD-TV"

Title says it all. I saw the board on Coin-Op Express and it looked like it just comes with an HDMi cable so if you can afford to buy two HDTVs and two boards it shouldn't be too terribly difficult to do this yourself. Many arcade operators are essentially doing the same thing with HDTVs inside real arcade cabs.

STREET FIGHTER 4 LIVE STREAM

So this is a live stream from TRF which I assume is a Japanese arcade. I don't know the schedule, but most times I have logged in I have gotten some game play! There is also a live chat with a lot of SRK people commenting on the videos.

MORE KING OF FIGHTERS XII FOOTAGE

This is probably the best video released yet. Shows some decent gameplay and some amazing shadowing on the stages. 

To me it still looks like there is a lot of work to be done. Although it looks great there are still some inconsistencies with the animations. Also, around the 4 minute mark you will see Terry get crossed up some how and continue to do crouching kicks the opposite direction. Looks pretty glitchy.

BLAZBLUE AM SHOW VIDEOS

AM Show is now over but more videos from the event keep showing up. This time it is some BlazBlue videos, although the compression on Youtube does not do this game justice.

GAMESPOT: KING OF FIGHTERS XII

This is a nice write up on King Of Fighters XII and what to expect. Sounds like the game has been just as hard, if not harder, to develop and animate as the previous games even though they are using a new rotoscoping technique for the visuals. The article also mentions the game is about 60% done. I'd say we're looking at late 2009 for a console release even though SNK mentioned it was closer to Q2 2009.

CAPCOM AT TOKYO GAME SHOW

The Japanese Capcom Street Fighter 4 blog posted some interesting information about the upcoming Tokyo Game Show. Thanks to laugh from SRK for the translation

There are a couple things that stood out to me:

  • There will be another character that will be playable at the booth besides Dan and Fei Long. Does that mean it's Cammy then or someone entirley different? Perhaps the new character that is slated to be unlocked in the arcades on the 26th?
  • Announcement of a "super huge" collaboration. This could be a massive announcement such as Capcom vs SNK 3 or even Marvel vs Capcom 3. Rumors have been going on for years about MvC3 but recently a Marvel PR guy (may have been the CEO, cannot remember) said it could happen "sooner than you think". It could also be Pokemon vs Capcom too so who knows.

Sirlin's Card Game Yomi is Out Yomi'd a License

After 3 years in development, Capcom denies Sirlin the use of the Street Fighter license which the card game is heavily based on. More details can be found here on Sirlin's blog.

Hopefully Capcom doesn't turn around and make a card game of their own. :X

NEW TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM WII SCREEN SHOTS

Some new screens from Famitsu. The game looks good, but the screen shots look compressed. Not sure if this is the quality of the game itself or just bad screen caps. We'll have to wait and see. Looks like there are some mini games in the Wii version as well.

Check the screenshots here.

RUSHDOWN SAGAT

Okay, so I really enjoyed this video. First thing I notice is how this Sagat player is using the focus attack dash cancel to rushdown and basically negate all of Dhalsims punches. Just a month ago you were only seeing this done against fireball type moves, but now people are using the focus attack much more liberally. I am not sure if he was using the focus attack only because of Dhalsims long reach and he could see it coming or if he uses it against everyone in this same manner.

First round a lot of tricky cross ups by the Dhalsim player. Dhalsim appears to be a real technical character who doesn't have any one thing that does a ridiculous amount of damage like some of the other characters, but it's really too early to say at this point.

Now, at the end of this match... well.. haha, just watch.

NEW KING OF FIGHTERS XII IMAGES... AND VIDEO!

Pulled from the SRK KOFXII thread. Not much to say here, obviously the game looks amazing. The animations look silky smooth. Cant wait to see at least some intermediate game play though.

NEW OFFENSIVE MOVEMENT IN VF5: R

This isn't an actual match video, but this shows how OM works from mid and far ranges and also close up. From far away you do not get the same amount of movement as you did in VF5 or as you do close up. Close up the OM is the same as previous games, enabling you to get an angle on your opponents side, just keep in mind the canned attacks from VF5 are not longer present.

Thanks to Reno for the video.
