The biggest monthly Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) tournament is here.
The third Curleh Mustache tournament presented by IFC Yipes will go down tomorrow night (March 31, 2012) from Next Level in Brooklyn, NY. This will be an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) only tournament and will be streamed by Sp00ky.
A slew of top east coast players have been invited such as Chris G, Noel Brown, Josh Wong, DJ Houshen, OmgitzAndre, Dieminion and many more.
Watch the Curleh Mustache #3 live stream below:
NOTE: All streams are subject to delay or cancellation.
Here's part two of the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) edition of Maximilian's "Online Warrior" series featuring Chris Redfield. The Resident Evil protagonist is back for another round with Maximilian and Doctor Doom.
Another Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) video has been uploaded by Desk. This one showcases Steve's "hardcore" flicker cancels. If you can take these cancels online, expect a quick win and hate mail.
What is, could have been much more.
SoulCalibur V (SCV) director, Daishi Odashima, spoke with Train2Game to discuss the game's development. Most of the interview focused on SCV's story mode and what was the vision Odashima had.
He admitted that Namco Bandai's plan for the game's story was not fully realized. See what Odashima had to say below:
Maximilian has posted the eight episode to the SoulCalibur V (SCV) edition of his "Online Warrior" web series. Max delivers live commentary for all his SCV online uploads and this episode is no exception.
The release date to Mortal Kombat on PS Vita has been confirmed.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm studios have announced that Mortal Kombat will make its way to Sony's PS Vita handheld on May 1. The announcement was brought to light through the game's official Facebook page.
The PS Vita version of Mortal Kombat will feature every character from the console versions as well as exclusives. These include: touchscreen fatalities, Challenge Tower, 150 new missions, and more.

Due to scheduling conflicts, FightVG.com will not update tomorrow (March 29). We will return on Friday to deliver you the news and combos regarding your favorite fighting games such as: Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2), and others.
South Side Noobs have uploaded a Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) guide for Cammy. Since it's a beginners guide, the video shows gamers the basics of Cammy including anti-airs and "other gimmicks."
"DO IT LIVE!" Again! Maximilian has uploaded the 23rd episode to the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) edition of the "Online Warrior." As always with his "DO IT LIVE!" specials, Max provides live commentary so you get to hear insights from the man himself as he was playing these matches online.
Since Chris G utilized her effectively at the second Curleh Mustache tournament, Morrigan's popularity has grown stronger in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). Now, fans of the Darkstalkers fighter have a combo guide to help improve their game.
The guide comes from Byakokoko, a well known UMvC3 and Tekken 6 player. This guide takes a different approach from the uploader's usual mission guides. Instead of giving tips on character missions, he is using Morrigan to showcase bread and butter (BnB) combos.
Watch the guide below:
Despite the game being out for about 12 years, gamers still pull off unique Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (MvC2) combos in 2012. This one comes from BrettH123, who shows us the insane damage that can be done with Iceman and Charlie.
The final Big Two tournament event of March 2012 is here.
Sp00ky and the crew will be streaming the Big Two live tonight (March 28) from Next Level in Brooklyn, NY. The event begins at 7 p.m. ET.
On display will be Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) action. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012 (AE v.2012) will once again be a side tournament and may not be streamed.

VesperArcade has finally completed all King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII) trials. The crew let it be known that they felt the game's trials were the most difficult to complete out of any fighting game on the market, rating its difficulty 10 out of 10.
Tuesday, March 27, 2012
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) has been out for three weeks and already gamers are showing their creativity when it comes to tag combos. This one comes from snackarific, who showcases Juri and Nina as an alliance.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited was released in Japanese Arcades today (March 27). The update includes new features such as 1v1, 2v1, and balance changes.
For a list of character changes (via Tekken Zaibatsu), head past the jump:
We now know more about Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) at Evo 2012.
Mr. Wizard of SRK has officially announced that SFxT will follow the 2v2 format. This format does not include scramble mode. Gems will also be disabled as they haven't been used in most tournaments due to time constraints.
More details on SFxT at Evo 2012 when they become available.
For the first time, Maximilian has recorded post patch SoulCalibur V (SCV) online footage. As usual, Max records the SCV editions of the "Online Warrior" with live commentary as opposed to labeling it "DO IT LIVE!" like he does with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3)
Nothing like a warm up.
Ibuki's swap costume for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) is available today (March 27) on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The costume costs 80 Microsoft Points.
This is interesting because Capcom revealed that swap costumes wouldn't be up for download until April 3. Either Ibuki swept through the cracks, or Capcom quietly put this content out.
Spencer has been proven to be a force in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), but he's even more dangerous when he has a little help. AdelheidStark has uploaded his latest combo video showing how much damage Spencer can do when he has an Amaterasu assist.
This collection features eight games including two Street Fighter titles and Final Fight Double Impact. The pack is available for $39.99.
Here's the press release from Capcom (click "Read more"):
Street Fighter x Asura? Capcom has released a trailer, uploaded by Maximilian, for Asura's Wrath DLC. The episodes will cost 160 Microsoft Points or $1.99 on PSN. Ryu will be available in North America on May 9, while Akuma will arrive May 16.

Will UFC Undisputed 3 finally be playable online?
THQ has revealed that server maintenance is scheduled for tomorrow (March 27) at 3 a.m. ET. Maintenance will last about three hours and player match will be the only online mode available.
UFC Undisputed 3 has been suffering from a major online bug. Many matches will disconnect even though neither opponent left on their own will.
Jadeshikonapan has uploaded part two to his Ogre and Cole Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video. The tool assisted combo can leave your opponents reeling if you don't drop it.
Earlier this month, Capcom confirmed that there would be no patch for local online co-op on the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). Despite being advertised in the manual, Capcom only made this feature available on the PS3.
First, the company claimed the feature was impossible to do on the Xbox 360 version, then they claimed there would be more news on it in the near future. Instead, Capcom Vice President, Christian Svensson once again confirmed the lack of the feature.
Now, Svensson continues to cause Microsoft gamers grief. See what he had to say on the Capcom-Unity boards below:
Our week no longer starts on Monday.
FightVG.com has been going strong for over a year and is only going to get bigger. We do our best to bring you the latest news and opinions on what's hot in the world of fighting video games. As much as we like being lazy on Sundays, we'd rather run the site.
That's why starting April 15, we will be bringing you the latest fighting game related news Sunday through Friday. This includes news and combos from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3), Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) and more.
With a little help from Akuma, C. Viper and Doctor Doom can make a formidable alliance in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). KORumvc3jj shows that if you have one meter, this team can do over 1,000,000 in damage with just one combo.
You never know until you try.
The fighting game community (FGC) has been going strong for years. Gamers from all over the world have joined forces as a result of a single bond … their love for fighting games. It’s that love that has made players spend years practicing to become successful in tournaments.
We’ve seen tournament play grow from small bets in the Arcades to live HD streams with thousands of dollars on the line. Now sponsors make it easier for competitive players to make trips to regional tournaments and of course the mecca of them all, Evo.
So with all the success and the growing popularity of the FGC, why are casual gamers afraid to dip their toes in the water? If it’s because they feel like they’ll get chewed up and be the laughing stock of the century, then they are mistaken. Casual gamers can learn to embrace and enjoy being a part of the community, but how?
In we go:
"DO IT LIVE!" Maximilian is taking a small break from Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) to get his groove back in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). In the 22nd episode of the UMvC3 edition of his "Online Warrior" series, Max provides live commentary of his ranked matches.
The "Unlimited" Tekken experience is coming soon.
Last week, Namco Bandai revealed that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) Unlimited would be making its way to Japanese Arcades tomorrow (March 27). Now the company has released an English trailer to the TTT2 update at AOU 2012.
The trailer shows the game's 1 vs. 1 and 1 vs. 2 modes. Of course the traditional 2 vs. 2 mode is in the game as well and is still the main attraction of TTT2 Unlimited.
Watch the AOU 2012 trailer below:
Scramble mode in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) is known for its wacky and random moments. For his latest video, Maximilian decided to sink his teeth into the mode with some friends online.
Friday, March 23, 2012
Julia is a sexy, yet deadly combatant. Desk has uploaded his latest Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video. The Capcom "game breaker" shows off his 61-hit combo with Tekken's Julia.
The official Japanese Capcom blog has revealed that Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) producer, Yoshinori Ono, has been hospitalized.
According to the statement, Ono will not be performing his regular duties at Capcom for now due to health concerns. This comes off the heels of SFxT promotion in Asia. We'll have more news on Ono's condition when it becomes available.
Here's what the blog states (translated by Event Hubs):
Maximilian has returned for the fourth episode of the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) edition of the "Online Warrior." In this episode, Max reviews the game's online multiplayer, breaking down modes and bugs.
Xero18 has posted his latest Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) combo video. This one features three Marvel characters. These characters include: Doctor Doom, Dormammu, and Spider-Man.
Arcades never die!
Last month, Namco Bandai revealed that an update to Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) would make its way to North American Arcades. While we don't have a release date for the United States, we now know when it will be hitting the "Land of the Rising Sun."
Tekken-Net reveals that TTT2 Unlimited will be coming to Japanese Arcades on March 27. Changes that come along with the update include a new 2 vs. 1 feature. TTT2 producer, Katsuhiro Harada recently explained the feature and why fans shouldn't worry about balance issues.
Thursday, March 22, 2012
Many gamers prefer playing games on a PC than on a console. Some like the higher graphics capabilities, others like the ability to modify games to their liking. Picture Spider-Man in Street Fighter IV.
Despite keeping in touch with the community, Capcom hasn't really taken a stance on modding. This leaves fans wondering if the company is neutral on the situation or wishes to ignore it.
Capcom Vice President, Christian Svensson, took to Capcom-Unity to address mods.
Despite his low health, Marvel's Doctor Strange can be stylish in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). MaziodyneMVC's latest combo video shows a fly-unfly loop performed by Strange.
Let's balance things out, shall we?
THQ has been working closely with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to deliver stat updates to UFC Undisputed 3. The first update is available on Xbox Live and PSN now.
These stat changes are based on each fighter's recent performances. See the list of changes from the Undisputed Community below:
NOTE: Updated because THQ released the update early.
You can now have King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII) in your pocket.
Today (March 22, 2012) SNK Playmore has released The King of Fighters for Android devices. This version comes with 20 playable characters and utilizes a virtual joystick similar to the Street Fighter games on iOS devices.
The Android version will cost you $4.99. Click here for more on The King of Fighters Android.
Chris G and Dieminion territory.
The second to last Big Two tournament of March 2012 is over. The event took place at Next Level in Brooklyn, NY. Henry Cen filled in for Sp00ky, who is on the west coast for Norcal Regionals, on stream duties.
Top local players attended for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) action. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (AE v.2012) was a side tournament as it appears to be from now on.
Who took home first place at the Big Two last night? See the results below:
Snackarific has uploaded some more combo videos. This Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) video shows what Raven can do if you're able to open your opponent up. All combos do over 400k damage.
"Heaven or hell, lets rock!"
The Guilty Gear series is known for its fast-paced rock and roll themed action. You can't go wrong with its beautiful 2D art style and adrenaline inducing heavy rock soundtrack.
Today, I’m going to go over the main series of Guilty Gear in honor of it. A port of Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus was announced to hit Xbox 360, and PS3.
No official release date was announced but I am sure as hell excited.
Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Tekken's Julia made her way onto Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and gamers using her to beat down the opposition. This combo video comes from vryu123, who explores Julia's capabilities with a dash cancel.
Endless Comboz has uploaded a new Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video. This one showcases multiple Street Fighter and Tekken characters including: Ken, Steve, Lili, Chun-Li, Julia, Marshall Law, and others.
More hidden content?
You've probably heard the controversy before, but let us refresh your memory. Earlier this month, it was revealed that DLC content was locked on the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) disc. Many wondered if Capcom would release the content for free, or charge to unlock them.
We got the answer and it wasn't popular.
Now SRK has received a tip that shows there may be new stages that will be DLC in the future. Check out the pictures below:
The third Big Two tournament of March 2012 is set.
Tonight (March 21) Sp00ky returns to stream the Big Two. The tournament will come to you from Next Level in Brooklyn, NY at 7 p.m. ET.
You can expect Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) action. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012 (AE v.2012) will be a side tournament, but may not be on the stream.
Watch the live Big Two tournament stream below.
NOTE: All streams are subject to delay or cancellation.
A new season of "Assist Me" is officially underway. Maximilian has kicked off the new season of the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) series with Chris Redfield as a guest. See what antics Max, Redfield, and Doctor Doom have in store for the first episode.
ImbuedGold has posted Nohohonto's King of Fighters XIII (KoF XIII) combo video. The video showcases one of the crew's favorite characters, Duo Lon. This is one of the many KoF XIII combo videos from Nohohonto, so expect more in the near future.
Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Desk has done it again.
If you see team Toro and Kuro on PSN, you may want to back out. That's because Desk has uploaded a Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video showcasing what the duo is capable of. He even included an infinite using the team.
Poor Pac Man.
See the latest combo video by Desk below:
IGN is taking an inside look at what Mad Catz has in store for their products. The media outlet explores the new official Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) fightsticks and fightpads, from the packaging, to the artwork, to the prices.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) will feature a solo mode. There has been some concern over how one versus two matches will balance out. Some are worried that having one single character will give that player an advantage in the power department.
TTT2 producer, Katsuhiro Harada wants to put the brakes on those fears. Here's what he said on Twitter:
C. Viper is known for being a pain in Street Fighter IV, but she can be just as brutal in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3). KORumvc3jj is out to prove that, uploading three C. Viper combos from South Korean play. Check out parts two and three below:
Plug up the holes, Capcom.
Maximilian continues his quest for bringing Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) glitches to a wider audience. The goal of the "Fix This Glitch" series is to let Capcom know the issues with the game so they can be fixed.
In this video, Max looks at a bug that can ruin competitive play if it's utilized. Jin has a glitch where, if executed, his opponent will spin in the air and not be able to get out.
See Max dive into this bug below:
Gungrave2K6 continues to upload DLC trials for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). This time he showcases two female Tekken bruisers, Christie and Alisa You can see Alisa's trials after the jump:
Capcom fans looking to play Street Fighter x Tekken's (SFxT) two player local co-op on Xbox Live were in for a rude awakening. Despite claiming the feature was available on the Xbox 360 version's manual, the company only included it in the PS3 version.
The good news was that not all hope was lost. Seth Killian and Ayano both said there would be news on pair play update last week.
It didn't happen.
Instead, Capcom's VP Christian Svensson has put an even bigger cloud on the feature's status. Here's what he had to say on Capcom-Unity:
Monday, March 19, 2012
Learning how to use chains and launchers effectively can be a crucial part of competitive play in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). Snackarific has posted a tutorial for learning how to be effective in this department.
Now stop, hating is bad.
Lately there has been an outburst of hate for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), especially from me. From the DLC policy to how the game is played, and just in general hating. Well I would like to remind people of the good this game does if one puts the time in to see past all the hate. That reminder is the main selling point of the game, which is ... you can play all the modes online with your friends.
When has there been something as simple as that little addition been so looked over? You can get salty over ranked games with your friends there to tell you that you should have switched in. Who wouldn't want all that pressure and rage-filled excitement? But on a serious note, it is indeed a fun endeavor if you so happen to have friends who play. It's a very nice switch from the usual go it alone route many other fighting games take (except DoA 4 which was also awesome).
You can get advice from your friend on what you should do better to handle a certain character, see how your partner handles different characters, and probably the most important mechanic to this game ... combos. A briefing room is available to work on combos and switch-ins, pretty much everything you can ask for. So the partner system can be seen as a great tool to help players learn from each more hands-on than before.
Capcom-Unity is streaming Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) now (March 19). The stream showcases the upcoming tournament update patch. The patch will also fix some glitches. For more information on the patch, click here.
If you've been following Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) tournaments, you'll know that characters such as Ryu, Ken, and Tekken's Jin, and Kazyua are the most favorable. Screw Attack now looks at the Street Fighter characters who don't exactly get their due.
More DLC goodness.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Capcom had locked DLC content on the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) disc. Now that the word has been out for three weeks, hackers have been diving into the game's hidden content.
Gungrave2k6 has uploaded trials of Lars, Elena, Lei Wulong, and Jack-X. Watch the locked DLC characters in action below:
Show Me King is back at it. The uploader has released his latest UFC Undisputed 3 video, with 100 knockouts including those from Pride Mode. He also challenges viewers to subscribe so he can continue releasing these montages.
Late last week, Namco Bandai revealed that a patch for SoulCalibur V (SCV) would be hitting consoles on March 21. Now the company (via 8 Way Run) has released patch notes for the 1.02 update.
The patch promises to fix some bugs including the ability to evade low attacks and block mid attacks by inputting “up” direction when holding guard button. The fixes and balance changes add to the already announced in-game shop.
See the SCV patch notes below:
Friday, March 16, 2012
Maximilian has posted the first part to his "Fix This Glitch" series. The first episode takes a look at the Mega Man glitch discovered this past Tuesday. Max is attempting to bring these glitches out in the open to send Capcom a message.
Could it be?
Early last year, the Chinatown Fair Arcade in New York City closed. In June that same year, Henry Cen, opened Next Level, the spiritual successor to Chinatown Fair in Brooklyn, NY. Now it looks like Chinatown will get its Arcade back.
Arcade Movie, took a photo of the security gate at 8 Mott Street. They discovered some old arcade cabinets. The source spoke with Cen, who told them that a man named Lonnie would be reopening the Arcade.
Who says Arcades are dead?
Out with the old.
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) was released on March 6 for Xbox 360 and PS3. As expected, SRK wasted little time in getting the game streamed.
Can't join the lobby? Don't worry, FightVG.com has posted the live stream below, which is now (March 16) in progress.
Check out the live SFxT action after the jump:
When Tekken's Lili and Street Fighter's Juri form a team, you can expect pain. Bmeister42 has uploaded a new Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video showcasing the potential of Lili and Juri as a team.
J-Lau, Ares, Hands of Stone, Do Bronx, Rumble ... oh my!
As if the large UFC Undisputed 3 roster wasn't enough, THQ has added some more. Joe Lauzon, Rory MacDonald, Sam Stout, Charles Oliveira, and Anthony Johnson are now available on Xbox Live and PSN.
The "Fight of the Night" DLC pack costs $4.99 on PSN and 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. Check out the DLC trailer below:
And boom goes the dynamite.
If you expected Capcom to release the 12 characters locked on the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) disc for free, then you're sadly mistaken. The company has unveiled its DLC plans for SFxT and their giving away free content, but characters will cost you.
On April 3, swap costumes will be available for $1.00 each on PSN and 80 Microsoft Points (MSP) on Xbox Live. A free tournament support update will follow the costume release. Capcom has also revealed they are working on a patch for sound issues online and infinites.
See what's free and what will cost you below:
As if the infinites of Kazuya, Akuma, and Kuro weren't enough, we have a new one. Jadeshikonapan has uploaded a Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) infinite using Steve. With the help of speed gems, Steve finishes off his opponent after landing 84 hits.

The second Big Two of March 2012 is over.
Next Level played host to the 18th Big Two tournament. Sp00ky streamed the event as he does whenever his schedule allows it (almost all the time).
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) action was on display. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition v.2012 (AE v.2012) action also went down.
See the Big Two 3/14/12 below:
Kawasima9 uploaded a Kazuya infinite, then Desk followed that up with a Kuro infinite. Now Akaihir0 is joining in on the Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) fun by combining the two infinites.
If it ain't fixed, just break it.
Desk is on a rampage in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). First, he uploaded his "God-like" combos, then he showcased the floating Akuma glitch, now he's discovered another infinite combo.
If you have the PS3 version of SFxT, then you can play as Kuro. If you can play as Kuro, then you've got the ability to pull off a new infinite.
Watch Desk break SFxT some more below:
Maximilian is back to discuss something that wasn't expected until later this year. A Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) tier list is in the works and Max dishes out his thoughts on such an early announcement.
Today (March 15) Namco Bandai (via Andriasang) has announced the upcoming SoulCalibur V (SCV) patch will be hitting Xbox Live and PSN on March 21.
According to the report, this free update will add an in-game shop. Namco Bandai will also add monthly DLC costume packs starting April 3. Perhaps most important to the fighting game community is that the game will also be re-balanced.
The patched version will be played at the world SCV tournament set to go down on April 10 in Las Vegas.
Wednesday, March 14, 2012
While an official release date for Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) costumes has yet to be revealed, it appears two have leaked on the European PSN store. Rajman Gaming HD has uploaded a video of the leak and how to get them.
Enjoy that costume glitch while it lasts.
Evil Pixel Games discovered a glitch in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) that confuses the game and unlocks Magneto's banned DLC costume. Hope you've been enjoying the glitch for a very brief amount of time because it's getting a fix.
See what UMvC3 producer, Ryota Niitsuma had to say on his Twitter as well as the DLC glitch in action below:
Vesper Arcade rated Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) trials a two out of 10 as far difficulty goes. Maybe that explains why the crew has completed all trials in about one week. Here's a video where you can click on the trials you'd like to see.
It's Wednesday. That means another Big Two tournament.
Tonight (March 14, 2012), Sp00ky and the crew will stream the Big Two from Next Level in Brooklyn, NY. The two tournaments held will be Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3).
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. ET.
You can expect top east coast players such as Dieminion, Chris G, Liston, Noel Brown and others to attend. Who will take home 70-percent of the pot in UMvC3 and SFxT singles action?
Find out tonight at 7 p.m. ET. To watch the live stream, click here.
NOTE: All streams are subject to delay or cancellation.
Yipes and the crew are coming.
The third edition of Yipes' Curleh Mustache 3 tournament is set to go down on March 31 from Next Level in Brooklyn, NY. Sp00ky will stream the event. The tournament will feature a slew of top tournament players from New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Maryland.
Curleh Mustache will remain an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) only tournament. Players planning on participating in the tournament are sure to put down Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) for some wall bouncing, off the ground (OTG) insanity.
Check back here on FightVG.com on the day of the event. If you can't make it to Next Level, we will post the stream on the main page.
See the uncompleted invite list below (via SRK):
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me three times ...?
Ever bought something expensive and found out you needed to buy other parts after your first purchase to make it work either more efficiently or to significantly better your enjoyment of it? Well this isn't exactly a newsflash since DLC has been around for a few years.
Now imagine having the part you needed, locked in some way (say on a single disk folder for a video game) that is easily accessible and the only way to legally "unlock" it was to buy it.
Welcome to Street Fighter X Tekken (SFxT)!
Who knew a boxer and a grappler could get along so well? Faded Spectre has uploaded a Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) combo video showing off his team of Tekken's Steve and Street Fighter's Zangief.
Capcom has been able to get away with some unpopular decisions. Trolling Mega Man in both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) and Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) had fans of the Blue Bomber crying foul. Supporters still defended the company.
Now it seems Capcom have dug themselves a hole so deep, that climbing out won't be an easy task. Once DLC was discovered on the SFxT disc, fans were outraged.
Even Capcom's VP, Christian Svensson wishes that the situation was handled differently as he explains to Game Informer:
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
Zero gravity. Mega Man is available now for PS3 and apparently he's broken. A new glitch (not discovered by Desk) has been released. Blargalmanator gives us a better view of Antarctica.
Paul's irrelevant? Says who? Persona World has followed up his Marshall Law combo video with Law's partner, Paul. The Tekken character can be put into good use, but not many players seem to use him effectively. That may change after seeing this.
First it was announced that, Sony would be getting three playable characters in Kuro, Toro, and Cole. Then Capcom stated that there would be no Xbox 360 exclusives. Now, an advertised feature doesn't even work on the Microsoft console.
On the PS3, you can do pair play. On the Xbox 360 you can not even though it says you can on the manual. Capcom said the console couldn't mix and match on Xbox Live, but that doesn't make sense because Mortal Kombat 9 does it.
Did Capcom forget they had fans on Xbox Live?
Have no fear Xbox Live gamers. See what Capcom's Ayano and Seth Killian had to say regarding an update below:
Get your mind out of the gutter.
Dead or Alive 5 (DoA 5) producer and Team Ninja head honcho, Yosuke Hayashi spoke with Gamereactor to promote the upcoming fighter. Among the topics discussed was the fifth installment of DoA lowering the sex appeal.
In previous DoA titles, the game was filled with eye candy. Now, women are dressed more appropriately for battle. So why the change now?
Maximilian's days as an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) player are far from over. In fact, he's released the trailer to the second season of "Assist Me." The trailer hypes Chris Redfield on the web series.
Are we less than a month away from Skullgirls?
According to the Xbox Live Marketplace, the answer is yes. The overview pegs the original Skullgirls release date for April 4, 2012.
The upcoming fighter was supposed to make its release in late 2011, but Autumn Games pushed it back to implement changes and new features. Skullgirls will be available on PSN as well.
Another Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) infinite? Must be Desk. The uploader has posted another glitch that will have your partner floating, literally. With this glitch, your opponent's meter does not scale.

In Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), Marshall is the Law. Perhaps there is no better demonstration of this than Persona's latest combo video. Over one minute and 50 seconds of kick ass courtesy of Law.
There's a new crossover in town.
Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) was released on March 6 for Xbox 360 and PS3. As expected, SRK wasted little time in getting the game streamed.
Can't join the lobby? Don't fret, FightVG.com has posted the live stream below, which as of this writing is in progress.
Check out the live SFxT action after the jump:
Capcom's unofficial tester, Desk, is hard at work on finding exploits in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT). The gamer has also released a transcription of the combo video on his blog. See it below:
Stop hitting yourself!
Want to raise interest and bring more excitement to the community? Choose different characters! Maximilian picks the same top tier characters when promoting new things in fighting games (think Doom, Wesker, Strider, Dante, and now Jin/Ken).
Everyone knows how well Ryu, Ken, Kazuya, Jin, and Heihachi work, but it's incredibly boring to watch these same guys (just like in UMvC3) fight each other and do the same moves and combos. Maximilian shows in this video, along with Floe, the state of this game.
Choose any combination of the five guys above and just go online. Even if you're not as good at the game, you can squeeze out a number of wins just off of their usability and effectiveness.
The latest episode of the "Online Warrior," dives into the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3X (UMvC3) rumor. Maximilian gives his thoughts on Capcom putting the rumor to rest and what characters he'd like to see if more DLC was on the way.
Ryu, Ryu, Ryu, and Ryu.
While that may be a reasonable observation for the top Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) characters, you can only pick the unofficial Capcom mascot once. Even the pros have to split from Ryu sometimes.
Cross Counter TV co-host, Mike Ross, asked well known SFxT players who their pick was for the four best characters in the game. Flash Metroid, ReNiC, and Jebailey threw in their two cents.
See what they had to say below:
Maximilian is back with another episode of the "Online Warrior," only this time, the action online is overshadowed by an issue of greater importance. Just before Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) hit store shelves on March 6, DLC was discovered locked in the disc. Max expresses his frustration with the decision as well as his disappointment in how the fighting game community has reacted to the news.
This past weekend, a rumor on NeoGAF sent the fighting game community on a frenzy. The rumor claimed that Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) would be receiving an expansion titled "3X."
The poster claimed to have worked for GameStop and that the retailer's computer system contained the following information: "Expand the ultimate experience. 8 new challengers join the fight!"
Prices claimed by the "tipster" were $14.99 for a DLC voucher and $39.99 for a disc version. So what does Capcom have to say about all of this?
