Bison2WinQuote's blog is composed of a giant gallery featuring some of the more humorous and quite frankly, bizarre win quotes that have made their way into tons of different fighters. Below are only a few screens from Bison2WinQuote's blog but make sure to hit the link above to check out a slew of others.

XxMarshy's Street Fighter X Tekken Lars guide wins March EventHubs guide contest

XxMarshy's Street Fighter X Tekken Lars guide wins March EventHubs guide contest This month's winner of the EventHubs forums guide contest is xxMarshy. He will be awarded this month's $50 for his Street Fighter X Tekken Lars guide.

XxMarshy has written a detailed guide that breaks down normals, special moves, super arts, cross arts, combos and more. There are also sections included in this guide covering frame traps, mix ups and which characters work best on a team with Lars.

If you are interested in writing a guide for next month's contest or you're just looking for a place to level up and gather information, visit the forums section here on the site.

All games are eligible for this prize and this contest is held monthly. Feel free to send your guides in via our submit news feature here on the site.

Below is a bit from xxMarshy's Lars guide to get you started.

Useful Mix ups:

Crouching Medium Punch ~ Crouching Medium Kick (or) Storm Axle
Although you cannot combo from Lars' overhead, this is a useful mixup to get a little extra damage. Lars' BnB is a couple crouching medium punches followed by a crouching medium kick, so opponents will know to block low so that they don't eat a big combo, you can use this to your advantage by replacing the crouching medium kick with an overhead. This will confuse them as to which way to block which will allow you to get more crouching medium kicks into big combos from it.

Crouching Medium Punch ~ Crouching Medium Punch ~ Crouching Medium Kick xx Medium Avalanche Stomp
In v2013 this is a useful pressure string because it will force the opponent to block low then immediately block high, and if they don't block it in time you can convert Avalanche Stomp into a damaging combo.

Bob solo combo lands 6 EX moves using meter gems, touch of death Sagat and Bob combo, SouthSideNoobs tutorials, Guy throw guard break and more

Borawserboxer came up with a Bob solo combo that uses 6 EX moves with the use of meter build gems. Additionally, this video shows a touch of death combo being hit on Dhalsim using Sagat and Bob.

Svensson: No changes to Street Fighter X Tekken's PC netcode planned - happy with the current direction of fighting games

Svensson: No changes to Street Fighter X Tekken's PC netcode planned - happy with the current direction of fighting games Capcom's Christian Svensson said there are no net code changes planned to the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken, recently on the Ask Capcom forums. He mentions that the PC release has the same netcode as the Xbox 360 version.

Svensson also stated that while it's unlikely for other Darkstalkers games to added to Darkstalkers Resurrection, he doesn't rule out that they can added to different projects depending on how sales goes. He then describes how 2D sprites are unlikely to be used in new fighting games, as that will be left to previous titles, as they're happy with the current direction of the genre.

Ricardo: There is any chance to solve SF x T PC netcode problem

Svensson: I'm sorry but there are no changes to the network code planned. It's the same core code as used on the X360 (it's not Qloc or GFWL related) as created by Dimps and the Capcom online group. Replacing net code is not a trivial exercise in the least.

Lab Zero to give MLP project Skullgirls engine if $725,000 mark is reached, Skullgirls linux port in the making Lab Zero has recently added a new goal to their Indiegogo campaign. If they can pass the $725,000 mark in the remaining 11 days of their campaign, they will give Mane6 their fighting game engine for free.

Mane6 are the developers behind My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic which was recently cancelled by Hasbro due to copyright infringement. The fighting game engine would be used for the current project that is being developed which is not the cancelled project, but a slightly different game that is being led by one of the creators of My Little Pony.

In other news, Mike Z recently announced that a Linux port for Skullgirls is currently in the making.

The Skullgirls team also said on Twitter that the beta release of the PC version should be out in June, followed by the final release in July.
