Svensson debunks Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC character rumor

Svensson debunks Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC character rumor A rumor has been circulating about who the next DLC fighters for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be, but Capcom's Christian Svensson jumped in on the Unity Boards to dismiss these claims. He also briefly talks about obtaining arcade boards and the perception of handheld consoles vs. smartphones in the company.

I read a rumor that all of these characters would be the next DLC fighters made available for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Is this legit?

Marvel: Dr. Octopus, Juggernaut, Elektra, Apocalypse, Iceman, Thanos and Ms. Marvel.

Capcom: Frank West, Phoenix Wright, Megaman X, Gene, Talbain, Strider, Gail.

Svensson: I'll save you all the trouble... not legit.

I'm looking for a way to legally buy a ROM for Vampire Savior. I heard I need an arcade board to do this, where I can buy one?

Svensson: We don't sell old CPS2 boards unfortunately. You can at times find B boards on Ebay and that's likely about the only source unfortunately these days.

Capcom thinks people are leaving handhelds for smartphones, is this true? — Cxplorer

Svensson: The head of our mobile division, responsible for that part of the business, believes that may be the case. Reading into it beyond that is probably more than you should.

Arcade Live, classic game emulator

Arcade Live, classic game emulator x Who Is Alpha and RPGFighter sent over some information about Arcade Live, an emulation service that allows you to play online against competitors in classic arcade games. EventHubs members in the Forums have praised its functionality and ease of use and are currently using it for Street Fighter III: Third Strike meetups. Alpha has created a good tutorial for setting it up in this forum thread so just follow the tutorial carefully if you are having trouble setting it up.

Arcade Live is very easy to use once you are finished configuring your login, so just drop a post in the thread linked above if you want to play against other forum members in Third Strike. No port forwarding or special network configuration is required on your part to play fighting games with this service online.

There are a lot of excellent features with this program including multi-man lobbies, numerical ping measurements, the ability to save replays and more. Street Fighter III is not the only game that is playable on this system either, so if you want to create meetups for other classic games now is your opportunity.

1UP article discusses the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter II

1UP article discusses the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter II 1UP just recently published an article discussing Street Fighter II's 20th anniversary. A lot of the 1UP staff are interviewed to ask about their experiences with Street Fighter II back in the day, so if you are interested in their relation to this game then check out the article. Here's a grab.

But we gave Street Fighter II a chance anyway, because it looked ridiculously good, even for a Capcom game. And we were stunned. There may have been only a dozen on-screen characters (and you couldn't even control four of them!), but each was huge, unique, and blessed with an embarrassment of animation. The breadth of the fighters' movements was matched by the diversity of their moves and the depth of the possible strategies. Mike Haggar and friends could punch, kick, jump, swing a mean steel pipe, and sacrifice a chunk of health to perform a secret move; the World Warriors could deliver punches and kicks in three different levels of strength apiece, and each of those varied further, contextually, according to the fighters' current stance and motion.

Community news roundup for March 30, 2011

Community news roundup for March 30, 2011

• Personaworld shows off a unique Trish combo in MvC3's training mode. This combo features rejuggles using Trish's Hopscotch and a linked Maximum Voltage after a Round Harvest in the air. It's also a touch of death combo against Dante, meaning that this combo can finish off 18 out of 36 characters in MvC3 without DHCs or X-Factor.

• Gimpyfish created a video showing how to take advantage of a badly spaced Phantom Dance (Maximum Wesker) in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This is very much worth watching since this move does appear to be safe at first glance, but there are definitely instances in where you can punish it.

• Snoooootch, a consistent contributor of combo videos and SSF4 content, has released the latest in his Super Freeze videos where he takes a look at Honda's Super Killer Head Ram. If you like this video, make sure you check out the rest of the Super Freeze videos on his channel. This video also contains information on an Arkansas regional tournament with Justin Wong in attendance so watch the whole video if you are interested.

Updated: Fight breaks out at tournament, 3 week ban instituted

Updated: Fight breaks out at tournament, 3 week ban instituted Updated: Noel Brown wished to say some things about what went down, his thoughts have been added into this story.

During the Break Weekly #101 tournament, a fight broke out between Noel Brown and Eric "Smooth Viper" Arroyo. The stream announcers and people running the tournament denounced what happened, and both players were reportedly banned from these events for three weeks. After the tournament ended, Noel apologized on the stream.

Because Noel threw the first punch, he was disqualified from the tournament, but Arroyo was allowed to continue. According the commentators, if this happens again a lifetime ban will be instituted.

Real life violence at tournaments has been very rare in our community, but sometimes people let emotions get the best of them and stuff happens that shouldn't. The tournament organizers were very quick to react, though, and clean up this situation.

One of the commentators also said that the owner, Chris Cotty, works very hard to keep The Break going, and it's very difficult to keep arcades running in the USA, so please do what you can to support this organization that reacted quickly and handled the situation.

Here are Noel Brown's thoughts on the situation. Note: These are Noel's thoughts alone, they've only been edited for grammar and foul language.

Noel Brown: First of all, I have no beef with Smooth Viper or anything and we actually hang out outside of tournaments. I know the video shows one thing but only the people there saw how it really went down. First of all, Erik loses first round to 10star... and everything is sweet.
