Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Phoenix Wright combo damage statistic from Seth Killian

Seth Killian just tweeted an interesting message to his followers today. In it, he shows off the damage statistics from a Phoenix Wright combo.

4 bars, no assists, no xf, no tricks, 1.2 mil dmg. Good morning Mr. Wright :) I'll get 1.4 mil w/ a little work.

Does this confirm Phoenix Wright's status of being hard-hitting melee character like Iron Fist? Or are his unknown tactics so damaging that they can lead up to killer combos? Leave your thoughts below.

TheSaltMine's writeup of Street Fighter X Tekken at BAM 2011

TheSaltMine's writeup of Street Fighter X Tekken at BAM 2011 The Saltmine blog has written up a impression of their hands-on preview of Street Fighter X Tekken and its presence at Battle Arena Melbourne 2011.

Not only do they discuss Pandora mode and a special new Tekken-like hitstun, but they also do a nice short summary of the newest characters. Catch a piece of it below, then you can read parts 1 and 2 here.

[Pandora]’s definitely something that will get tweaked before release. I predict the Super bug to get fixed, and/or a little extra duration. Eight seconds isn’t nearly enough time to properly open an opponent up, and was likely decided upon as a base value, to be added to as Team Ono sees fit. One last tidbit; a round win by way of Pandora is marked in the round win icons with the 天 symbol. Well gee, I wonder who the final boss is going to be…

SFxT has a new hitstun state that seems to be inspired by Tekken, where the victim slumps to the ground briefly before regaining their feet. The whole thing is quicker than a knockdown recovery, and keeps the user relatively low; I can’t remember any instance of it resulting in whiffed high attacks, but I can’t confirm that that can’t happen either. The new state seems to result from standing heavy normals. In addition to the 天 symbol for a win by Pandora, there’s another new win icon for winning with low health, G, inspired by Tekken’s traditional “Great!” cry in the same situation.

Many Tekken characters’ specials can be extended by pressing buttons. Heihachi’s Thunder God Fist (DPM+P, the jumping variant) can be extended Seth-style, while Lili’s Sunflower Lance requires repeated presses of K to continue. Another thing of note is that while Hard Tag-Outs with MP+MK are invincible for the fighter running off screen, the character running in is quite vulnerable. Also, Switch Cancels are far from invincible, leading to many a happy birthday (one combo catching two fighters).

Justin Wong's column: Chapter 2 - Hitting your targets

Justin Wong's column: Chapter 2 - Hitting your targets EG|Justin Wong's second column here on EventHubs has been posted. This time around he discusses tactics you can use outside of the training room to improve, including how to not choke in matches and land your combos on a moving target.

Here's another snip to get you on your way.

What is a Training Mode Monster? A Training Mode Monster is someone who has great execution in terms of combos in the Training Room. Most common problems are that majority of the players are Training Mode Monsters which means that in an actual match, their execution goes down by a lot.

Not being able to land your combos against a moving target (Computer/Human opponent) is what a lot of players suffer from.

There are ways to increase your percentage of being able to land your combos against moving targets or in high pressure situations. When I was growing up, I played against the computer every day. Even though the computer isn’t really challenging, it still gives you an opportunity to land combos in many types of situations and not just a non-movable dummy. The computer will stand, crouch, jump, spam an unsafe move and more, but this is beneficial for the player because you will be able to change up the type of combos due to the situation.

In case you missed it the first time around, you can read Justin's first column here.
