Seth Killian recaps Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 information

Seth Killian recaps Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 information Newsarama recently caught up with Seth Killian at PAX 2011 to discuss Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This piece is a short recap of all the information that has been dispensed over the past month, so it's a very good compilation read. A piece of the interview is below, and you can catch the rest here.

Nrama: On the subject of new features, was user feedback on the previous game used, and how?

Killian: We tracked a lot of tournaments and some really competitive players, as well as looking at what new players were confused by that we could make a little more obvious. So we went back and changed some of the [user interface] elements. X-Factor was a big gameplay component but it wasn’t very obvious with the old UI exactly if you still had X-Factor, you could see it of course, but you had to know what you were looking for, so we redesigned some of the [heads up display] elements. As far as the competitive and tournament side goes, we track everything that’s happening around the world and that’s really useful data, what’s good and what’s bad. So we’re going back to revisit all of the existing characters some in some cases little properties have changed a little bit and in other cases they get all brand new moves.

Nrama: Of the new characters, which is your favorite and which do you think is going to be a breakout hit among fans?

Killian: Right now I’ve been playing a lot of Ghost Rider and Doctor Strange, but Rocket Raccoon is a character that leaked out on us and we’ve owned up to it, and he’s a lot of fun for me as well. He’s a very tricky character with a lot of unique moves. Also I’m really looking forward to Phoenix Wright, because he’s the kind of character you would not expect to see in a fighting game, but he’s here. Those guys are going to be a lot of fun. [Note: the announced new Capcom side characters also include Firebrand (Ghosts 'n Goblins), Frank West (Dead Rising), Nemesis (Resident Evil 3), and Vergil (Devil May Cry 3)]

Juri Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide updated

Juri Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide updated The Juri guide for Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition has been updated on EventHubs.

Juri doesn't really have a cut and dry playstyle, but she has a very reliable toolset. If there was a special move that Juri relied on the most, it would definitely be her Fuhajin fireball. I do not think it is possible to play Juri effectively without mastering Fuhajin storing and releasing, so it should be the first thing you learn before you take her into competition.

Juri is a character with the ability to land killer damage in a flash or zone the opponent out for long periods at a time. She also has a great toolset with two solid normal anti-airs, great range on her cancelable normals, multiple juggle options, and a dive kick that can be used in three jump directions without EX.

Her weaknesses include her slow ground speed, which weakens her throw game. She also has a very slow overhead without much range, and her close poking combos do low damage. She desperately needs to store fireballs to be a threat with damage or spacing and it can be very difficult to hold onto fireball charges while fighting.

You can also catch up with other Juri players on the EventHubs forums.

PC lighting issue fix coming, Marvel vs. DC not likely at all

PC lighting issue fix coming, Marvel vs. DC not likely at all Seth Killian and Christian Svensson discussed a few subjects relevant to fighting game fans recently on Twitter and the Capcom Forums. Subjects run from the PC lighting issue that the community discovered to finding out more details on the changes from the SSF4 AE v2012 location tests. Hit the jump to see everything.

There's a lighting issue with the PC release of SSF4 AE. Can you fix this? — DarkSamus

Svensson: This should be fixed in an upcoming title update. Once again, good find.

Can you give any info on AE changes? I'm curious about Dudley's Rolling Thunder change. — Srslygtfo

Seth Killian: There will be some good stuff coming out of the upcoming location tests — I'll try and give a few tips on what to look for.

How much is Namco really involved in Street Fighter X Tekken? — CheerfulJochan

Svensson: Namco isn't really involved in development on our side, nor are we on theirs. The deal was, no approvals required from either side to let the teams worked in as unfettered a manner as they'd like.

That said, I'm sure Harada-san and Ono talk all the time about their plans and I'm not sure of how or if there's any cross-pollenation that happens casually through those chats. There's certainly nothing formal.

Doctor Strange Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character primer

Doctor Strange Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character primer You've probably seen a lot about Doctor Strange's various gameplay mechanics at this point, but Sumoslamman at ISpeakComics did a piece covering a lot of this character's back story as well. Everything is succinct, making this a quick and fun read if you're interested in finding out a bit more about this fighter.

In the beginning the good doctor was nothing more than that: a doctor, more specifically a very talented neurosurgeon. Unfortunately his unparalleled skill was accompanied by an unadulterated arrogance which ultimately led to his downfall. Bereaved by dead family members his skills couldn’t save he lost the use of his hands and fell right to the bottom of a bottle.

Luckily he happened upon the Ancient One, Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme, who decided to take Strange under his wing when he helped the wizened old wizard against his former pupil Baron Mordo. As an apprentice Strange helped the Ancient One defend the Earth from various mystical enemies but was forced to kill his teacher when Shuma Gorath, that’s right all you MvC fans, threatened to enter our universe through the mind of the Ancient One.

Thanks for tuning in to the first episode of series 3 of 3 Green Bars. A series that looks at fighting game communities around the world.

This episode I cover Melbourne, Australia's, fighting game scene.

SFIII 3S: Akuma combo reset video by PIKACHUAKUMA

PIKACHUAKUMA uploaded a video today displaying some of Akuma's resets in Third Strike. As most of you have figured out, Akuma's play style is very different from SFIV. In 3s his power comes from his deadly resets, his dash, and his hard hitting moves. Akuma isn't so much a vortex character in this game due to the parry system. The video shows most of what can be done after a reset and also displays some stun combos at the end.

While the video is in HD, the artwork for the endings wasn't redrawn/rescanned, so it's just upscaled to 720p.
