SG Chooses Lord Knight as Partner for Arc Revolution Cup 2014

As part of being the top placing U.S. player in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma at Evolution 2014, SG has been given a qualification into Arc Revolution Cup, Arc System Works' SBO-like event that is now in its second year. As BBCP is a 2v2 event, he has also been given the right to select a partner.

Earlier this morning, SG revealed that player to be Lord Knight:

"My Arc Revo 2014 partner will be ! Cheer us on! :D"

While supporters and detractors have already made their feelings known about the choice, it is important to remember that Arc Revo Cup will be played on the arcade version of BBCP. This almost completely disqualifies pad players and those who use special button configurations from being able to play in the event.

Arc Revolution Cup will take place on August 30 in Tokyo as part of Japan Gamer's Live.

Lab Zero Games Looking for Developers to Help Make PS3 Controllers Work on PS4, Will Offer Driver for Free

With Skullgirls Encore releasing on PlayStation 4 and Vita later this year, the team at Lab Zero Games is working to make those releases as user-friendly as possible. One way Mike Zaimont and his team would like to do this is by offering support for PlayStation 3 sticks so that players do not need to spend more money buying a new stick for only one system.

However, while Sony is allowing for games to create their own rules on what peripherals will be useable in-game, there are no software tools in place to do this at the present time. So the Skullgirls team has put an offer on the table: help develop the tools to allow PS3 controllers on PS4, and Lab Zero will license that product to anyone who wants it for free.

Marie to Join Persona 4 Arena Ultimax as Downloadable Content

According to Gematsu, the newest issue of Famitsu has revealed that Persona 4 Golden character Marie will appear in the sequel to Persona 4 Arena as downloadable content. She will appear alongside her Persona, Kaguya, and "will make full use of the contents of her bag, as well as her Persona, and excels at ranged attacks and diversion techniques."

The Famitsu article also announces a new lobby system similar to the one implemented in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma.

With Marie's addition, the number of new console characters for Persona 4 Ultimax is at four: Rise, Adachi, Ken and Marie. It will be interesting to see if this is the last surprise for the console version of the game, or if Arc System Works and Atlus have more in store for fans.

Ultra Street Fighter IV Bracket Notables for Evo 2014

With Evolution 2014 having the most players in Evolution history, there will be a lot of good players spread out all over the 125 Ultra Street Fighter IV brackets. A lot of old faces have shown up from the days before Street Fighter IV, but also a lot of new faces are here to make their names known on the biggest stage in fighting games.

I have compiled a list of notable players for Ultra Street Fighter IV. As a note, I’ve added a double forward slash symbol ( “ // “ ) to indicate what side of the bracket the player is in their pool, as I felt like this was important for predicting pools outcomes. Names separated by the forward slash are on opposite sides of the bracket. Pools with no names in front of them means I have not found notable players in that pool.

Review: Phreak Mods Crossbone Pad Hack Board For Xbox One Controllers

Fighting gamers will have to deal with the eventual migration from playing on the previous generation consoles (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3) to the latest systems (Xbox One, PlayStation 4). To those who use arcade sticks, previous gen models won't be able to work on the newest machines. While sticks from various manufacturers are being developed for the XB1 and PS4, some players are unwilling to buy a new stick to play on those platforms at the moment. The most common alternative to this dilemma is padhacking, a technique where you wire all necessary inputs from a stripped controller to your stick's buttons and lever. With Killer Instinct getting popular, XB1 padhacking has been very desirable among the fighting game community.

Clayton Knight, founder of Phreak Mods, introduced a special board to aid people in padhacking their XB1 controller to work on arcade sticks. Called the Crossbone, it streamlines the padhacking process to get you up and running as quickly as possible as well as increasing flexibility for those who want more out of it. Despite encountering unusual quirks, the Crossbone does its job very well in getting gamers tournament-ready for Killer Instinct and future fighters on the XB1.
