Another fighting game, another tier list.
With games such as Skullgirls taking over the spotlight, Namco Bandai hopes to steal the thunder with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2). While the game's update, Unlimited is out, it's only available in Japan.
Top Japan players took to Arcadia Magazine (via Level Up Your Game) to reveal their tier list. The list comes from Fukushi, Yuu and others.
See the TTT2 Unlimited tier list below:
First Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), then Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), then Skullgirls. Now Maximilian is filming his week of fighting games with Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike. This is significant for the series because 3rd Strike is a classic.
Civil War 4 is in the books.
The pre-Evo tournament event was held in Richmond, VA from April 27 through the 29th. The following games were featured: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012 (AE v.2012), King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII), Mortal Kombat 9 (MK9), and Skullgirls.
Sp00ky and Bifuteki were on streaming duties for the event at the Comfort Inn. See the results for all games mentioned above, after the jump.
YoItsOdin has uploaded his latest Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) combo video. This one is titled, "Strange Loops." Despite his suspect health, Dr. Strange is still a viable force competitively in UMvC3. NOTE: Music not safe for work (NSFW).
Sunday, April 29, 2012
The latest Blazblue Continuum Shift: Extend (BBCS:EX) combo video to hit the web features Valkenhayn. The combo video comes from Jourdal. The uploader returns to making combos after posting a bevy of online matches.
Desk is hard at work in the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) lab. His latest video showcases the 1054 damage combos of Tekken's Steve and Kazuya. Street Fighter's Ken also joins the fray by assisting Kazuya.
Has the cat been let out of the bag?
Amazon has updated their page for the PS Vita version of Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). They have added an Oct. 2 release date. While Amazon usually puts mock dates on upcoming products, those dates aren't far off, most of the time.
If the date holds true, it'll be a big gap from the console release dates. Owners of the console versions of SFxT would have to wait even longer for DLC characters as Capcom intends to put them up for download on Xbox Live and PSN well after the Vita release.
Since the release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), Nova has become a popular character. That may be due to his laid back style and punishing combos. Infrit12 has released a new UMvC3 video with some Nova tech and concepts.
Don't call it retirement.
Right now, Victor "Sp00ky" Fontanez is in Richmond, VA to stream the final day of Civil War 4. Yesterday Sp00ky revealed on the stream that after Evo 2012, he will no longer be streaming big events.
The highly regarded streamer cited traveling and lack of enjoyment as his reasons for stepping away from bigger events. It's likely that he will continue to stream the Big Two, which is held every Wednesday night at Next Level in Brooklyn, NY.
Yesterday (April 28) Maximilian uploaded the fifth episode to his "Sega Saturn Saturdays" series. This one takes a look at the Virtua Fighter games that were released on the Saturn. Like every other episode, Max is joined by his colleague, Matt.
Friday, April 27, 2012
The road to Evo continues.
Sp00ky is in Richmond, VA at the Comfort Inn to stream Civil War 4. He is joined by Ultra David who is on commentary for some Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) action.
Other games that will be played at the tournament are Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), Mortal Kombat 9 (MK9), King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII), and more. The stream starts today (April 27) and ends on the 29th.
Watch Civil War 4 live below:
More Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) combos continue to surface. While Dante isn't the most original character, he does do effective combos that do substantial damage. This one from SoSoJynX uses a little assistance from Doctor Doom.
Story in fighting games.
If there's one thing that fighting games have been lacking in, it would be a story mode. Stories in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) are brief and they are non-existent in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). The only fighting games to really take note of this recently are Mortal Kombat 9 (MK9) and SoulCalibur V (SCV).
Tekken 6 had a story mode, but there were many inconsistencies that plagued it. An example of this would be English speaking characters understanding what Japanese speaking characters said with ease.
Namco Bandai hopes to improve Tekken Tag Tournament 2's (TTT2) story. One of the ways they intend to do this is by increasing each character's movie. See what TTT2 producer, Katsuhiro Harada had to say on Twitter below:
Skullgirls is on a roll. The game sold 50,000 copies in just 10 days. Not bad for an Xbox Live Arcade title competing with Fez for the top spot. Here's some more Skullgirls content with Maximilian's fifth day of the week online.
Change is coming.
Capcom has revealed that a balance patch for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) will be hitting Xbox 360 and PS3 mid May. The patch aims to fix glitches and provide changes for numerous characters who have exploits.
For a list of those changes, head past the jump.
At the moment, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) is perhaps the most hyped fighting game in the community. It's combos videos like this one from AdelheidStark that make it so. Spencer, Amaterasu, and Taskmaster form a team to provide some serious damage.
Since late last year, rumors have surfaced of a Smash Bros. clone coming to Sony's PS3. Names such as Kratos, Drake, and PaRappa the Rapper were characters rumored for the title.
After months of anticipation, Sony has revealed the inevitable (via GTTV). PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is now official. Kratos (God of War), Parappa the Rapper, Fat Princess, Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal), Sly Cooper, and Radec (Killzone) have been confirmed.
Third party characters will join the fray. Expect more announcements to be revealed in the near future. The PS3 exclusive hits North America during the holiday season.

Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo videos continue to roll out. This one comes from Maximum Jake Arcade and features Street Fighter's Ken and Juri.
Good news Skullgirls fans.

Maximilian has uploaded the 27th episode of the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) edition of the "Online Warrior." Max takes a break from the live commentary to provide insight on his pre-recorded matches.

Yesterday's (April 25) tournament event saw Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012 (AE v.2012) action. Sp00ky was on hand to stream the event at Next Level in Brooklyn, NY.
Locals such as Chris Hu, Aquasilk, Chris G, Noel Brown, Arturo Sanchez and others participated. There could be only one first prize winner for each tournament, so who took home 70-percent of the pot?
See the Big Two 4/25/12 results after the jump.
Endless Comboz has uploaded a new Skullgirls combo video featuring Ms. Fortune and Double. The characters team up to deliver a 202 hit combo. This is of course impractical due to the game's infinite prevention system.
Wednesday, April 25, 2012
A new Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video from Snackarific has surfaced. The uploader pairs Street Fighter's Juri with Tekken's Hwoarang to deliver a hurting on all who oppose them. This is Snackarific's fourth video in a row featuring Hwoarang.
While North American gamers have been able to enjoy Skullgirls, others have not. That's because the game has not be released in Europe or Australia.
That changes now.
Skullgirls producer, Peter Bartholow took to the SRK forums to confirm that the fighter will be on the European and Australian PSN store on May 2. No word on pricing.
A new Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) combo video has surfaced. This one comes from Gravimite and features Spencer and Jill. They get a little assistance from Doctor Doom, Amaterasu, and Wesker.

Arturo Sanchez has uploaded a breakdown of Street Fighter x Tekken's (SFxT) new replay analyzer. The new feature was included with today's patch available for both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. The patch also eliminated infinite combos.
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) was released for Xbox 360 and PS3 March 6. While the PS3 version does not have an input bug, the Xbox 360 version does.
When trying to jump forward on the Xbox 360 version of SFxT, sometimes your character will just move forward or jump straight. The fix did not come through in today's patch, but Capcom producer, Yoshinori Ono took to Twitter to ensure fans that the issue will be addressed.
See what Ono had to say below:

Sunday, April 22, 2012

All that has been known for sure are leaked screenshots from NeoGAF back in November 2011. Now Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale may not be a rumor anymore.
A poster on NeoGAF noticed that Sony has registered the web domain for the game.
Geoff Keighley of GTTV took to Twitter to hype an exclusive announcement on a new PS3 title along with gameplay footage. All signs point to a Sony fighting game exclusive.

Let's fix this thing, again.

Mortal Kombat will land on Sony's new handheld, PS Vita, in May. To whet your appetite, NetherRealm Studios has released a live action trailer that showcases female fighter, Kitana.
Post patch woes?
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) has been praised by critics, but panned by many fans. Besides the locked DLC issue, SFxT has been plagued by sound issues online. Rather than hearing your punches connect fluidly, the sound would tear.
Capcom released a patch that improved the sound. Gamers have been reporting however, that the game is suffering from slight input delays online as a result of the fix.
The Vice President of Capcom, Christian Svensson, has responded to those concerns on Capcom-Unity:
If you want some practical damaging Chun-Li combos, Ludthinks has the video for you. In his latest Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) combo video, the uploader shows what you can do with the female Street Fighter when she has assists.
Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano is filling in for Yoshinori Ono as Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) producer of the PS Vita version. Ono was hospitalized last month and will be taking time off indefinitely as a result.
GameSpot spoke with Ayano to discuss what makes the PS Vita version of SFxT stand out. The focus point of the interview is the "exclusive characters" that are available on the Sony handheld version. They will of course only be exclusive for a limited time.
After the PS Vita "exclusive characters" were found locked in the disc of console versions, Capcom confirmed that they would be DLC for $20 or 1,600 Microsoft Points.
Watch the full interview below:
Maximilian has posted his second Skullgirls gameplay video. In the first video, Max took a look at the game's tutorial mode, now Max is doing a walkthrough of the game's story mode.
