Desk's Street Fighter X Tekken combo and glitch video #3

Desk has released a new combo and glitch video for Street Fighter X Tekken.

Here is a little bit from his blog. Which also has full transcript of the combos.

I ended up taking a lot more time than usual getting all of the clips for this vid.

Even the stuff that looks relatively straight forward took ages to plan and capture, due to the fact that I wanted a bunch of things to KO and I ended up having to control 2 or 3 characters in some clips. I'm not sure if it could ever been entertaining enough to be worth how long it took to make but hopefully it's not a waste of your 4 minutes.

Pandora extender, expert input and ultimate guard gems part of next free update for Street Fighter X Tekken

Pandora extender, expert input and ultimate guard gems part of next free update for Street Fighter X Tekken El33tOnline wrote an article that details some of the upcoming changes and additions to Street Fighter X Tekken. A new replay analyzer, 60 new gems, additional gem save loadouts and more. Will all be available for free in the next title update.

Here is an excerpt.

There will also be a free title update that will give over 60 new gems and replay analyser and additional gem save loadouts – this title update will be dated in the future. Some of the things you can look forward to are Pandora extend, Ultimate guard and Expert Input. Pandora Extend will allow you to sacrifice characters to give you a 20 second power-up boost to another character instead of the 10 second boost. Ultimate guard combines Auto Block, Auto Throw Escape and Chip Damage Negation into one chip. Take note that this requires one block per meter per use, and also that if you block by yourself you’ll still take chip damage. Expert Input requires precise inputs.

Ono then moved on to give some information about the May downloadable content, which will be a mix of free and paid content. It will add colours from Palette 3 (free), include the Street Fighter X Tekken Assist Gem Pack 4 for $2/160 Microsoft Points and the Street Fighter X Tekken Booster Pack 3 and 4 for $1/80 Microsoft Points. Ono rounded off his part of the presentation by stating that battle related bugs (that leads to infinite combos) is being fixed.

Cliff Bleszinski: On-disc DLC an unfortunate reality in many games

Cliff Bleszinski: On-disc DLC an unfortunate reality in many games At the recent PAX East GameSpot caught up with Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski. He talked briefly about the on-disc DLC which has been a major discussion point in the fighting game community since it was discovered that Street Fighter X Tekken's DLC is currently locked away on the game disc.

Here's what he had to say.

When you're making a game, and you're getting into a ship cycle, there's often three or four months where the game is basically done. And you have an idle team that needs to be working on things,

And often for compatibility issues, [on] day one, some of that content does need to be on-disc. It's an ugly truth of the gaming industry. I'm not the biggest fan of having to do it, but it is one of the unfortunate realities
