Gems are unique to each fighter on your team in Street Fighter X Tekken 2D-X also interviewed Seth Killian at New York Comic-Con 2011, mostly concerning the gem system in Street Fighter X Tekken.

The is an audio only piece and it's almost 9 minutes long. Here's a quick rundown of some of the notable stuff.

• He adds that gems can be used to help balance the game yourself, adding relatively small bonuses to your attributes.

• Seth mentions that people haven't had a chance to go hands on with the gem system, but he understands there's not that much information out there. He hopes people check it out before they jump the gun.

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog recaps gem system information

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog recaps gem system information Ayano-san went on Capcom-Unity and posted a blog about everything from New York Comic-Con. He recaps the gem system in Street Fighter X Tekken which is currently getting a lot of attention from the online community.

Here's a sample, check out the full blog here.

Information about the Gem system has just been officially released, but it’s already creating a lot of talk online about the potential pros and cons of it! We took a lot of time to think about how we could expand the general fan base of fighting games and what approach would be best, and we finally came up with this solution.

Nonetheless, I suppose that everyone who reads my blog and has that passion for fighting games would like a better explanation of the Gem system, and I would love to as well, but remember that the game is still under development, and there’s always a chance that what I explain may not make it into the final game, so please be aware of that point.

Also, some websites have stated that you can filter matches to have fights with and without Gems. However, this is incorrect. We would like to state that when searching for matches, there is no such feature to turn on or off Gems. The Gems is a fundamental part of Street Fighter X Tekken and a highly important piece of the system. Be on the lookout for official information regarding the effects, conditions and costs of the Gems revealed thus far.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Chun-Li has an undiscovered off the ground attack

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Chun-Li has an undiscovered off the ground attack Seth Killian just made a post on his Twitter account saying that Chun-Li has an off the ground move in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that nobody has found yet.

Yes, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Chun has an off the ground that nobody has found, and EX Spinning Bird Kick is pretty good. She's tough to play but gets a bunch of solid buffs.

Do you guys think this is enough of a change to Chun-Li that we'll see more players using her?
