Street Fighter 25 year Perspective, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Ken wants to be Ryu

Dhim posted a video on the Machinima YouTube channel titled "Perspective. 25 Years of Street Fighter." What first started as a random animation exercise soon got out of hand and turned into a pretty good tribute video for Street Fighters 25th Anniversary.

Since 1987, the Street Fighter franchise has been a part of many gamers' lives. And, sometimes we get so immersed in its rich legacy...the tense competition...the colorful characters...that we feel like WE'RE the ones fighting in the game...

Street Fighter X Tekken gameplay mechanic breakdown from OdinReborn

Street Fighter X Tekken gameplay mechanic breakdown from OdinReborn OdinReborn tossed us an email detailing some Street Fighter X Tekken mechanics that some people might have missed from watching various videos.

1. Air-to-air counterhit puts opponent into a juggle state, not an air reset. Imagine the new combo potential for Ryu's j.MP.

2. It is not possible to do a Cross Rush into a special unless it is the EX version (minus the actual launcher of course). You can still cancel one normal into a regular special.

3. Cross Assault (2 characters at once) has had their time reduced to 5 seconds; this is a lot shorter than in previous builds. No word on whether EX/Supers drain it, but I suspect it does (which decreases the overall amount of time). You need to be smart with it now to maximize damage.

4. Supers seem to have a higher damage range than in Street Fighter 4 (Street Fighter 4 was generally between 300 and 350).

5. Cancel switching some EX moves allows you to get a free Super if the EX move lasts long enough (For example, Ryu's Shin Shoryuken)

5BP Flamoctapus also sent in an email detailing another mechanic.

If you charge up a special move to the 2nd level (so you get the flash) your next move will be a counter hit, but if you whiff a normal or special then the one counter hit will be lost.

Let us know what you think of these in the comment section below.

Q1) What was your first fighting game?

It would have to be Street Fighter II in the arcade. After playing it for the first time, it would always be my goal to go on a rampage throughout any arcade I'd come across until I found it. It's safe to say I've been playing fighting games ever since I can remember.

Q2) What was the first fighter you took in a competitive way?

I took pretty much every fighting game I ever played seriously, even Battle Arena Toshinden haha, but I guess the true competitive aspect came about when I got into Street Fighter III Third Strike. I joined the arcade scene quite late, so I had a lot of catching up to do. Needless to say I received an ass whooping on a weekly basis from the best in London, so I learnt very quickly what it was like to play the game at high level.

This taste of high level game play lead me to a hunger for more, but I wanted to start at the same point as everyone else, a chance to be the best from the very beginning. So when Street Fighter IV was announced, I couldn't believe my luck. I knew this was going to be my chance to make a name for myself and I would say it was at this point I took fighting games to a truly competitive level.

All of Street Fighter X Tekken's player slots can be set to CPU control, Svensson says cross platform play for PC/360 isn't worth investment

All of Street Fighter X Tekken's player slots can be set to CPU control, Svensson says cross platform play for PC/360 isn't worth investment Those hoping for cross platform play between the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Street Fighter X Tekken might be disappointed by a recent statement Capcom's Christian Svensson made. Although he acknowledged he understands the desire for such a feature, he states that adding it in would be too much for them to handle, given the small amount of people who would actually take advantage of it.

Seth Killian also steps in to talk about some of the features the game has, and Christian chimes in on concerns that Capcom is biased against Xbox 360 owners, considering the exclusive characters on the other console machine. Hit the jump to check out the rest.

Is there a CPU vs. CPU mode in Street Fighter X Tekken? — Han

Seth Killian: [...] There is totally CPU vs. CPU mode in SFxT. You can set any or all of the 4 slots to CPU control, as well as making the CPU play any of the modes (standard versus, pair match, or scramble).

Will there only be 4 colors in the color edit mode for SFxT once the game is released, or will there be more? I heard that there will only be 4 colors, but free packs will come later down the line. — Ruhul

Seth Killian: I do think you've answered your own question, but yes, more colors will be released over time. Hopefully just a little way to keep things fresh and interesting over time as we try out this new direction.
