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.

Not only will these teach you how to play Skullgirls, but they should also help you learn the concepts underlying the fighting game genre as a whole. There are 17 courses explaining basic and advanced concepts, from movement to hit confirmation and advanced tactics, some of which use AI to help you learn.

Soul Calibur 5 gamers using custom character settings to make NSFW content

Gamers aren't particularly well known for their restraint, and some rather creative uses of Soul Calibur 5's character customization have been put out there to make NSFW configurations. A few of these things aren't any worse than what you see from Cammy, or others, in the Street Fighter games, but some of them definitely cross the line.

Keep in mind that Soul Calibur 5 is a Teen rated game, but with some of these model configurations, the title may have received a different rating if the ESRB figured out what could be done.

Images have been edited so they don't show the naughty bits, so everything you see here is safe for work. Hit the jump for more.
