TFR interviews Gootecks and Mike Ross

TFR interviews Gootecks and Mike Ross The Flashy Review posted an interview featuring Gootecks and Mike Ross. The interview covers many things including Bill S.978, their recent signing with CompLexity and EVO. Be sure to read the entire thing to catch many of the interesting things that are talked about.

TFR: It seems a lot of strong players have been signed in the past month or so; is that a good sign for the community? Is it indicative of a larger trend in gaming and culture?

MR: Well, it depends. If you read on a headline that “Wolfkrone just got signed to Hood Street Gaming,” you’re going to be a little skeptical of that. Just getting signed doesn’t mean much. Fortunately, the players that have been getting picked up lately have been going to legit companies. fLoE, Momochi, ChocoBlanka – [Evil Geniuses] is really good. We found out that RF and Kindevu got picked up by eLive. You might say, “Well, what is eLive?” Heck, they’re sending them to EVO, so they’re doing a lot more than other companies do for their players.

TFR: So is it fair to say that, with those companies, these players are in arrangements that are going to pay their bills?

MR: We don’t know that, but what we can say is that they’re going to be in a situation where they can get more exposure, travel the world, and go to more tournaments.

G: The sponsorship thing is tricky because right now everybody is just trying to get travel paid for, but travel is only half the battle. You have [other] expenses when you’re traveling, and you have expenses when you’re not traveling. So the fact that everybody is getting sponsored is a good sign, but it’s not everything. What we need is not more players that are signed. We need more players having their bills paid by their talents, period, whether they’re signed or not signed. That’s why the signing thing is one of the indicators of growth, but it’s not the most important. A lot of people put a lot of emphasis on the sponsorship, like “Oh, this makes you legit,” or whatever. But I don’t really think it’s like that at all. Like Mike said, there’s plenty of players who can get sponsored, and then can’t find a way to get to different events. A lot of international players have that problem, where they’re sponsored, but there’s worry as to whether they’re going to get the events they need to go to.

SSFIV AE: Evil Ryu Reset Tutorial by Micfly121

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 costume details, may be single player surprises in store

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 costume details, may be single player surprises in store A few new details about Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were talked about today at a Comic-Con panel. This mostly deals with the extra pre-order costumes, and other minor information as well. Nothing amazing here, but if you want to check out everything you can, read on.

• Costumes available are going from four outfits to six, at least for now.

• Plans for DLC costumes are still being finalized. There will likely be more ways to pick up the outfits than just pre-ordering at certain stores.

• Capcom is still thinking of ways to get other cool costumes for the characters in the game.

• Someone was quoted as saying: "We're still working on this game so we haven't hit a point where we're even thinking about DLC yet. We put a lot of work into making those additional outfits, it's a whole new model design."

• Capcom has added more endings for all of the new characters. There are more expanded elements in the story because of that. More give and take between the characters. There may be some single player surprises as well.

• In the "Keeping It Classic" collection, Ghost Rider gets his 90's costume, Hawkeye gets his original look, Hulk has modified pants, She-Hulk gets her Fantastic Four costume, plus an alternate Dormammu and original Captain America.

Street Fighter X Tekken's roster about half-way revealed

Street Fighter X Tekken's roster about half-way revealed For those of you wondering how big Street Fighter X Tekken's roster is going to get, Yoshinori Ono dropped a big hint today during a live chat session, saying the game's roster is around the half-way point. He continued to talk a lot about the game, offering up all sorts of interesting details, which have been transcribed below.

Darkstalkers and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition were also briefly mentioned, and you can find those details and more stuff after the jump.

General details — SFxT

• Capcom is some where around the half-way point for character announcements. Maybe a little ahead of the mid-point, maybe a bit behind it. Right now SFxT has 18 announced characters, 19 if you count the Sony exclusive character, Cole.

• SFxT's net code will not be SSF4 AE's net code, but you'll see improvements for sure. More will be announced on this in the future.

• Ono said that Haggar, Cody, Guy and Hugo being in the trailer didn't mean they'll be in the game, but where there's Poison there's usually Hugo.

• There will be some element of character customization in SFxT in regards to their looks. This will be announced in the future.

• Mishima vs. Shadaloo is a big part of the story for the game. This is another non-canon story, i.e. a "what if" scenario, not part of the main SF story arc.

• A lot of fan feedback from the E3 build of SFxT was put into the Comic-Con build of the game, Ono said, he specifically mentioned the lifebar changes.

Seth conducts Street Fighter X Tekken stage demo w/ GameSpot

Seth Killian did a roughly 15 minute stage demo of Street Fighter X Tekken with GameSpot (skip to the 53 second mark to avoid the intro), talking a bit about the new characters like Poison, Steve, Dhalsim and Yoshimitsu, the Cross Assault feature and pointing out some of the other changes since the last build of the game.

Also, Seth answered some questions from GameSpot fans, including if snapbacks will be in the game or if there will be a 4-player mode, among other things. Good stuff.

Fan support helped Strider get into Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Fan support helped Strider get into Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 If you're one of those people who doubt that fan feedback is much of a factor with Capcom games, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer has some food for thought. He said in an interview with SiliconEra that the community being so vocal about having Strider in the game helped push the company to clear some licensing hurdles to get him in.

There are a few other subjects about UMvC3 covered here as well, and while none of it is knock your socks off stuff, it's cool to know a bit more about the title.

Last time we talked about Marvel vs. Capcom 3, rights for Strider were the reason he didn’t make it in the game. How did you work out those issues?

We were able to get over the hurdle about the rights with Strider. I think one of the things that helped with that is there are a lot of fans out there that really wanted to see Strider in this game. He’s been a popular character since he appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and a lot of people were disappointed that he wasn’t in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Because of that, we knew if we ever went beyond 3 we would try to put Strider in the game. Because that’s one of the characters that fans, more than any other, requested for. I think that really helped us clear the rights issues with Strider.

How is Strider different from his appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 2?

His basic attacks are all pretty powerful. When it comes to his gameplay and moves, not much has changed from Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The biggest change with Strider would be his hyper combos, that is where we made the most changes to. With his level three hyper combo, we decided to give him two different level three attacks. I think he’s the only character in the game who has two different types of level three hyper combos.

Seth details Cross Assault feature, 3/4 player option, in Street Fighter X Tekken

Seth details Cross Assault feature, 3/4 player option, in Street Fighter X Tekken Seth Killian covered some really interesting information about Capcom's upcoming fighting games recently on the Unity live stream from Comic-Con. He talks about Street Fighter X Tekken, specifically the Cross Assault feature, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

Lots of cool details here, and everything has been broken down into categories to make it more easily digestible. Hit the jump for more.

Cross Assault in Street Fighter X Tekken

Important Note: This system is still being tweaked, and may change. This is the 3/4 player attack option in Street Fighter X Tekken you've seen in a few videos. It's activated by doing a quarter-circle away and pressing both Medium Attack buttons. Once activated, your Super bar turns into a timer and your teammate runs out on screen to help you attack.

• While the timer is going, both of your teammates are now controlled by you, they're not computer controlled as some people have speculated.

• You have control over one character until you return the joystick to a neutral state, and then control will automatically return to your other player.

• You can do attacks that last a long time with one fighter, return the joystick to a neutral state while the initial character's attacks are still going, get control of your second fighter and setup some wicked damage and reset situations.

• Just like in the Vs. series, both characters can be hit when doing a Cross Assault.
