Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

MLG talks Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with Capcom at Fight Club

MLG talks Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 with Capcom at Fight Club Major League Gaming's Slasher attended Capcom's recent New York Fight Club and got the chance to talk with Capcom's Ryan McDougall about how Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is shaping up.

In the first video, Ryan mentions they're trying to make the game more tactical and get the focus off of 30-second long combos and more about the spacing on screen. He also covers the X-Factor changes and states again that they're toning down level 3 X-Factor a bit so it's not just a few hits to K.O. someone.

McDougall added that Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition was a testing ground for new features, and he says to look for similar things in future titles.

In the second clip, some changes to Magneto and Wolverine are discussed, and you get to hear the direction the developers are hoping to take with these fighters.

Lastly, there are two videos with community members, one of them is with TS|Arturo Sanchez about the differences between SFxT and SSF4 AE, and how he thinks the community will handle having these two games in the spotlight, and the last bit is with random people who were in line for the event.

Niitsuma: We don't want worthless characters in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Ryota Niitsuma briefly discussed the design philosophy of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in an interview with GameTrailers. He states that one of the goals for the game was to make everyone a powerful character, and not have any worthless fighters in the game.

Niitsuma also mentions that there will be a new downloadable mode that changes the way you play the game, but that they wouldn't be talking about it at this time. He adds that there is still some undiscovered technology out there that players haven't discovered yet.

If you're interested in the design approach the developers are taking, or just want to hear Ryota talk shop, you should check this out.

SBO (Tougeki) staff apologizes for Super Street Fighter 4 AE tourney mistake

SBO (Tougeki) staff apologizes for Super Street Fighter 4 AE tourney mistake Some drama took place at this year's Super Battle Opera, where the team from Kuwait and one of the squads from the USA had to play in a pre-tournament match to decide who would be allowed to compete in the actual tournament.

Both teams had won qualifying spots already, and should have been involved in the main event, but due to an oversight by the SBO team, they had too many squads competing, and they issued this apology today on their site.

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition

Tougeki 2011 Championship Tournament zero-round match

Due to an error on the part of Tougeki, an unintended Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition tournament zero-round match was held between TWFIGHTER (Hsien/Banana Ken) (USA) and WHITE TOWER Q8 (GANNOON/NOX2) (Kuwait). The loser of this match was thereby unable to participate in the main tournament.

We would like to express our sincerest apologies to the player unable to participate in the tournament.

Tougeki is extremely regretful for any disappointment and distress felt by TWFIGHTER and his organizer Emotiongear of Planet Zero as a result of our error.

All the staff at Tougeki will do all we can to ensure that such an unfortunate mistake does not occur again.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Footage of Street Fighter X Tekken's scamble battle (4 players)

On Capcom Japan's YouTube channel, they put up some video from the Tokyo Game Show of the Street Fighter X Tekken stage show. There's a lot of recapped stuff here, and presentation is all in Japanese, but in the middle of the clip, Yoshinori Ono and Katsuhiro Harada, along with the help of two assistants, get in a Scramble Battle match, i.e. 4 players at the same time.

This goes by pretty quickly, as there's under a minute of action here in this mode.

Also, after the jump you can see a mostly unexciting screen of SFxT's gem system which was shown on the projector.
