Street Fighter amigurumi has Little Big Planet style

A Street Fighter amigurumi listing on Etsy, which will likely remind you of Little Big Planet, has a series of crochet dolls for Zangief, T. Hawk, Hakan, Juri, Akuma, E. Honda and Makoto up for grabs. The creator of these will also take requests for other characters as well.

WinteryBreeze posted some images of how her work has turned out.

Street Fighter X Tekken producer Ayano talks about Vita port - touch screen controls can be disabled, more control schemes coming

Stepping in for Yoshinori Ono while he recovers, new Street Fighter X Tekken producer, Tomoaki Ayano, talked with GameSpot about the Vita port of the game. He mentions that touch screen controls can be disabled, by simply binding the touch screen buttons to nothing. Ayano added that they've been hearing a lot of feedback from players on how they want to control the game and will be announcing more control schemes in the future.

Discussions also spill over into the infamous on-disc DLC topic, and how purchasing the Vita version will offer a free unlock of the additional characters, like Elena, Sakura and Blanka, for PS3 gamers.

Svensson covers Street Fighter X Tekken's netcode patch, PC benchmark tool and BBB rating for Capcom

Svensson covers Street Fighter X Tekken's netcode patch, PC benchmark tool and BBB rating for Capcom Saying that most of the feedback he's heard for Street Fighter X Tekken's latest netcode patch states that the online play for the game is mostly unchanged, sans for fixing the sound issues, Capcom's Christian Svensson gave another rundown of posts on the Unity Boards. He also lightly touches on Capcom's Better Business Bureau rating dropping, and adds that there will be an in-game PC benchmark tool for SFxT.

Capcom said it's either smooth netcode OR sound. With that in mind, many want to know if the "soundfix" has any negative impact on the netcode, like input delay or less rollbacks (desync) or anything else? — zUkUu

Svensson: The patch should be live... as far as I know, it's still roll-back/fixed input (not variable input delay based). As I understand it (and my understanding to be honest is somewhat limited so take this with a grain of salt) it's an issue of having sounds trigger and play through frames that get dropped or rolled back.

In short... I'm not sure why there's concern. Download the patch and try it for yourself. Most of the feedback I've seen is that the network play is largely unchanged but just that the sounds work as intended now.

How do you feel about Capcom's Better Business Bureau rating falling cause of the problems with Street Fighter X Tekken? — SDZero

Svensson: Sorry, but there's no benefit to us (or to our consumers) by commenting on this.

Desk's Street Fighter X Tekken Dummy glitch and tutorial

Desk has a new Street Fighter X Tekken video for everyone today. A dummy glitch and a tutorial on how to do it.

Training mode only, not game breaking and actually quite fun to mess around with. Also, this was possible back in SFIV's training mode too.

Even though it looks messed up, arguably, it's not a proper glitch. Just a weird quirk of the way the game handles animations. Done by simply recording the training mode dummy crouching for 3 frames (REC feature should read 0.03 when done).

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 devs tried duplicate characters on same team - players said it wasn't fun

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 devs tried duplicate characters on same team - players said it wasn't fun SGCafe translated a 4Gamer interview with Tekken series producer, Katsuhiro Harada, about various things the development team tried while creating Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited.

Most notably, Harada elaborates on the much talked about 1v2 and 1v1 modes that were added into the game, including that the development team tried offering duplicate characters so players could compose a team of just one character, say Lili for example. This was to help alleviate the concern of having to learn two character's move sets. He added this note on the subject.

“We tried this out, and it turned out to be extremely discomforting! (Laughs) For instance, if Lili were to launch her opponent and tag out, in comes Lili again… what the?! (Laughs) Also, suppose all four characters on both teams were Lili, we don’t even know what’s going to happen anymore,” Harada told 4Gamer.

“To be sure, we had a bunch of test players come in to give this [duplicate characters on a team] a go. The feedback received was unanimous: ‘this is just not very fun…’ So we had them try 1-vs-1 instead. As this format was pretty similar to past Tekken games, naturally it played well.”

The piece also mentions a training mode dummy who's moves and appearance can be customized.

Quick look at PS Vita touch screen controls for Street Fighter X Tekken

Capcom posted a screen shot of how the touch screen controls in the PlayStation Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken will work. This looks very similar to the configuration they ran in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and in that title they offered an online filter so users could avoid others who used this feature.

It's possible Capcom will offer a similar filter for Street Fighter X Tekken on the Vita, as the game is cross system compatible with the PlayStation 3, and some users will likely want to avoid playing people who are using touch screen controls to do easy moves and such. Here's a screen shot of how this mode is setup in the portable version of the game.
