Graphic enhancements for Street Fighter 3 3s Online Edition, no rebalancing

Yoshinori Ono is at the Ultimate Gaming Championship in Italy and he briefly took the stage to answer fan questions and talk a little Street Fighter. Here's an embed of the video.

For those of you who want the quick and dirty version, here are some footnotes.

• Ono said that Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition will not be rebalanced, but the game will offer graphic enhancements and really harness the online element. Back in March, Capcom's Christian Svensson said that this game will cause Third Strike fans to wet themselves, so it sounds like we're still missing some big details here. An announcement about the game is expected this month at Captivate, and the embargo for information will be lifted on April 12.

• Answering a question about things that had to be cut or didn't make it into the games, Ono said he hoped to provide more tools for players to make tournaments online or organize an event at home, but this would require funding, which hasn't been approved.

• Yoshinori added that Street Fighter 4 hasn't reached the level of popularity that Street Fighter 2 experienced, and he's hoping to get even more of the people who used to enjoy the older game to get involved with the newer titles as well.

Dudley Super Street Fighter 4 guide updated by Nyoronoru

Dudley Super Street Fighter 4 guide updated by Nyoronoru Back to the real news now, the Dudley Super Street Fighter 4 guide here on EventHubs has been updated. Nyoronoru has basically redone the entire thing from top to bottom, and now you'll actually find some useful information if this is a character you're interested in picking up.

Dudley is an in-your-face rushdown character with a large library of mixups. He also has quite a few powerful jumping attacks and great damage options. Dudley can appoach the opponent well from mid-short range with great walk speed and an excellent Focus Attack. Dudley also has a plethora of frame traps and damage scaling resets that can punish those trying to escape his offense. He is also one of very few characters who can combo after an overhead attack.

Dudley has problems approaching characters from mid-range and farther though. All of his normals (especially his cancelable ones) have either short range or slow startup. He also has weak reversal options, relying heavily on meter or taking damage to perform escapes. Another big problem is that Dudley has no fast low game, meaning that most of Dudley's big damage has to be started from high attacks beyond the range of his Dart Shot.

Also, DreamKing23 has another very nice Dudley guide here on the EventHubs forums, detailing his normal moves, combos, frame traps, option selects, resets and more.

Seth Killian: X-Factor Level 4 to be patched into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 next week

Seth Killian: X-Factor Level 4 to be patched into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 next week Seth Killian recently made a post on the Capcom Unity forums stating that an addition to X-Factor in MvC3 would be patched in this coming week. For a transcription of the post, read below.

How do you activate X-Factor Level 4?

Seth Killian: X-Factor Level 4 comes into play when you have lost your first two characters and have also thrown your joystick out the window. If you're in a place without windows, I recommend spiking it into the floor to ensure that the game registers a Joystick Knockout. Pad players are a bit out of luck, so please wait until we release MvC3: Platinum Edition for pad support.

Why the patch?

Seth Killian: We feel that we need to bridge the gap between the professional and casual player. Justin Wong let us know through Twitter that he felt that MvC3 was a game that was much too hard for him, let alone a new player, so we decided to lower the bar a little bit by giving newbies a chance through sacrificing their joystick.

What does X-Factor Level 4 do?

Seth Killian: Everything that X-Factor Level 3 does, except it revives all of your K.O.'d characters to 100% health and lasts until the round is over. We feel that this is appropriate enough to bridge the skill gap that's plagued fighting games for years.
