Street Fighter X Tekken presentation from Da Ultimate Crushing, Pandora combos

GeMStuff has uploaded shaky cam footage taken from the Street Fighter X Tekken presentation with Yoshinori Ono at Da Ultimate Crushing 2012.

In this video they talk general gameplay functions and then they start talking about about Pandora Mode. When they're showing this off you can see the new timer that is shown in game which indicates how long you have to live and they even show Ono activating Pandora mid combo. On top of all of that they talk briefly about the gem system.

Tekken X Street Fighter: 4 and 6 button layouts, 8-way run system & roster vote

Tekken X Street Fighter: 4 and 6 button layouts, 8-way run system & roster vote Tekken X Street Fighter's producer, Katsuhiro Harada has been on Twitter answering some fan questions. These are all on different subjects from characters to button layouts.

Why did u decided to put a 6button system on TxSF - Carotenuto92

I said Street Fighter character= 6button Tekken character = 4button

You should consider the 8-way run system like in Soul Calibur 5 for Tekken X Street Fighter:) - Redd_Vel90

No. 8-way run is not good for TKxSF

Please Put Both of Karin And Poison For TxSF! They are Too Popular - 2_cody3

I'm planning "TKxSF Roster vote" on TEKKEN Facebook. Plz wait

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 receives a patch, no balance changes

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 receives a patch, no balance changes Today a patch went live for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but Niitsuma hopped on today to confirm that the patch does not contain any balance changes.

Due to the large variety of inquiries, the latest patch does not touch the internal program data. No changes were made to overall character balance.

Would you expect Capcom to balance patch this game in the future or do you think they'll let the game stand as-is? Leave your thoughts below.

Street Fighter X Tekken ESRB hints at Alisa and Lei Wulong

Street Fighter X Tekken ESRB hints at Alisa and Lei Wulong Siliconera took a quick look at the newly published ESRB for Street Fighter X Tekken and realized that it might have accidentally revealed the existence of Alisa and Lei in the game. Take a look at the rating description and note where it mentions the presence of chainsaws and a drunken fighter among other things.

This is an arcade-style fighting game in which players engage in two-on-two battles with characters from the Street Fighter and Tekken universes. Players punch, kick, and use special attacks (e.g., energy blasts, fireballs, electrical strikes) to deplete opponents’ life meters. Some fighters also use laser swords, chainsaws, metal claws, or explosives to knock characters across the screen or to the ground. One bear-like character can perform a flatulence attack to strike opponents, resulting in yellow gas clouds.

A variety of female fighters wear revealing outfits that expose large amounts of jiggling cleavage; some sequences include close-up camera angles on their breasts or buttocks. The dialogue references alcohol and drunkenness (e.g., “Getting drunk isn’t really a good way to fight,” “[W]anna go for a few drinks?”), and one wobbly character uses “drunken” fighting moves. The words “sh*t” and “a*s” appear in dialogue.

The metal claw is obviously a reference to Vega while the laser sword must belong to Yoshimitsu so unless Guile decided to get more special moves then this sounds like a very solid confirmation of Alisa in the game.

Given that there is no one in the Street Fighter universe that uses Drunken Fist this is a very obvious hint for Lei Wulong.

Dqthekid wins contest for Zero Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 guide - King of Fighters 13 & Soul Calibur 5 areas

Dqthekid wins contest for Zero Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 guide - King of Fighters 13 & Soul Calibur 5 areas Dqthekid has won the monthly forum contest for his Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 guide for Zero, and he takes home a cool $50 for his work. This is a very extensive guide with a lot of details about this character covered. You get a complete breakdown of his normals, specials, hypers and there's also a team synergy section talking about who he best teams up with.

We've also just launched new forum areas for King of Fighters 13 and Soul Calibur 5 and these places are now eligible for the monthly contest as well. So, if you'd like to contribute a guide, now is a good time to get in there and get started.

New Soul Calibur 5 specific images have been added into the forums to make the guide creation process a bit easier as well.

Also, we're re-opening the monthly forum guide contest up to past winners, so now everyone is eligible to win the $50 prize again. There will also be a bigger prize down the road, which will be announced here on the front page when all the details are ready.

Lastly, we've launched our own Soul Calibur 5 guide here on EventHubs which contains move lists for three characters with many more coming soon. Along with the moves, there are notes about which way attacks must be blocked. These listings are HUGE, as the fighters in this game have a ton of moves.

SFilp, DreamKing23, Nyoro and I are very hard at working building out more guides for the game, so keep checking back frequently for additional updates.

Seth Killian on competitive gaming and the value of gems

Seth Killian on competitive gaming and the value of gems Still an often debated subject in the fighting game community, Street Fighter X Tekken's gem system has caused a stir from the moment it was announced.

Capcom's Seth Killian had a long discussion with Kotaku on the subject recently, discussing how it'll impact competitive gaming and the overall value of the system.

This is a pretty interesting read, hop the link to check it all out. Here's a snip.

“Yeah the competitive community is quite worried about the gems,” begins Seth. “I’m in that competitive camp so I understand. Any time you make changes, it’s like SACRILEGE! UNACCEPTABLE!

“I get that, because I had the same reaction myself internally. I was excited about the idea of customisable characters on paper, but then I started playing and seeing how the whole thing was evolving and I was thinking, ‘this is going to be a hot mess, I better go find another job pretty quick!’

“But then I actually went hands on with the prototypes and it started pushing my nerd buttons.”

Street Fighter X Tekken has literally been built around the inclusion of gems. It’s as central a feature as focus attacks in Street Fighter 4, or parrying in Street Fighter 3. Elements of the gem system are intended to make the game more accessible to new gamers, but Seth hopes they’ll ultimately result in a new meta-game, a system that adds depth to an already fluid fighting system.

“I started trying out the ones I thought would be cheap — I was using for an autoblock gem and a meter builder, choosing Zangief and just running in and piledriving everyone! That build didn’t work out for me, so we had to balance and evolve over time. But once you start playing with the gems, you move from trepidation and fear to thinking of all the possibilities. Now I wake up from dreams going EUREKA! No-one has ever thought of this!
