It's been awhile since we've checked up on Kuuronn, who primarily ran a team of Spencer, Hulk, Doctor Doom back in vanilla Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Hailing for Japan, he's also added Phoenix Wright into the mix on occasion and SMOAI2010 posted some matches featuring him running this new squad in UMvC3.

Part 2: Community tiers poll for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012

Part 2: Community tiers poll for Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012 The second part of the community tier polls project for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 is now available. We're asking readers to vote on each of the match ups for Dhalsim, Dudley, E. Honda, El Fuerte, Evil Ryu, Fei Long, Gen, Gouken, Guile, Guy and Hakan.

Here's a little preamble about what this project is about.

As with any tier list, this one will also be hotly debated, but we're asking members of the community to vote on game's match ups that they're familiar with.

For example, if you feel the Chun-Li vs. Adon fight is 5-5, 6-4, 7-3 or whatever score, we'd like you to jump on the forums and cast a vote for how you think the game's various bouts stack up.

This is open to the entire community to vote — but this will not replace the other tier listings on the site. When the results are compiled, this will be clearly labeled as a community poll tier list, to try and gather and see what the general opinion of the match ups are right now in v2012 by the playerbase at large.

In case you missed the first announcement, you can still vote on Abel, Adon, Akuma, Balrog, Blanka, Cammy, Chun-Li, Cody, C. Viper, Dan and Dee Jay's match ups, or you can see the results of what the community thinks so far.

Contributions and execution of this idea by Zombiebrian, Jet-x, Wildbeard, Zee, Terror, Jai, Legacy Virus, Cheney and ScythWP.

AE 2012 stats: Kazunoko's Seth unstoppable, TKD's Fuerte returns

AE 2012 stats: Kazunoko's Seth unstoppable, TKD's Fuerte returns New match statistics from Japan are here today courtesy of Lynaken's work on Japanese BBS.

Notable statistics include Kazunoko's inability to lose any of the sets he plays. Kazunoko no longer has trouble with Iyo's Ibuki, pulling ahead of Iyo 10-3. Daigo is also posing less of a challenge to Kazunoko, losing both recorded sets. Is Seth the true top tier character that no one can stand up against?

Daigo retains his usual consistency in victories against Yun and Ibuki though losing in short sets to a Dictator and Adon player is a bit of an unusual turn of events for him.

TKD is also recorded here using Fuerte, having switched from Fuerte to Balrog in Super SF4. The switch back is a surprise and he posts a reasonable challenge to Daigo (2-3) and Mago (2-1). Recent footage of TKD is here thanks to Ov3rheadGreg.

Kazunoko (Seth) 4 – 1 Daigo (Ryu)
Kazunoko (Seth) 6 – 3 Mago (Sagat)
Kazunoko (Seth) 11 – 4 Iyo (Ibuki)
Kazunoko (Seth) 2 – 1 Reiketsu (Claw)
Kazunoko (Seth) 5 – 3 Daigo (Ryu)
Kazunoko (Seth) 5 – 1 FU*K Yun (Yun)

Gama retires from Nagoya Street Battle and talks about Japan's FGC

Several weeks ago the founder of the Nagoya Street Battle series Gama no Abura announced that he will be departing from the NSB group, effectively halting the series that had continued until December 17th.

This is very significant since Nagoya Street Battle has evolved from a very small group of participants in 2009 into one of the most recognized tournament series in Japan. It was also one of the very few sources of Japanese AE footage and a welcome place to catch top players at the height of their skill.

Below is a video of Cross Counter's Zhi interviewing Gama at Evolution 2011, in case you need to familiarize yourself with who Gama is. Beneath the video is Gama's final words to his fighting game community, also translated by Zhi. Hit the jump for the full writeup.

I know its late, but thank you for today's NSB. I'm sorry that I was unable to attend and greet the stream monsters and players. Once I left the house, I began to have doubts. I was in the parking lot alone when the grand finals began, and the tears would not stop. I only reached NSB after the finals were done. I was embarrassed when the warmth of everyone's warm words made me bawl uncontrollably.

How to plink Ultras in Super Street Fighter 4 AE v2012

Nevillebamshew has made an interesting video on how to plink Ultras using a throw tech and canceling jump frames in SSF4 AE 2012. This is useful if you are having trouble landing Ultras in your combos, so watch the inputs carefully.

For those who don't know, plinking is a technique that gives a move additional chances to come out by using semi-simultaneous button presses.

Neville mentions that you can also plink using Hard Attacks, but your last directional input has to be one that allows the Ultra to come out. This changes on a per-character basis.

Widescreen UI concept for older Street Fighter games from reader

Monkey on Capcom-Unity came up with a different widescreen concept for older fighting games, remixing the interface for Street Fighter Alpha 2 a bit. He moved the lifebars, super meters and character portraits over to the left and right sides of the screen, giving players a mostly unobstructed view of the action. Here's how it turned out, along with the more traditional views of stretched (middle) and black borders (right).

Click images for larger versions

This might take some adjusting to, as fighting game players are used to looking in the traditional spots to find this vital information, but what do you think about how this turned out? Is this something you'd like to see Capcom try in the future as a UI option for their next fighting game re-release? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
