Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Blanka confirmed for Street Fighter X Tekken?

Two voice actors for Street Fighter X Tekken might have potentially confirmed Blanka in a recent Capcom-Unity video. They're discussing how everyone had destroyed their voices, especially the Blanka voice actor Taliesin Jaffe. He also did the voice of Blanka in Street Fighter 4, so he could be referring to that.

But check out the video below and judge for youself.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character impressions from PAX 2011

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character impressions from PAX 2011 A good write up for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was posted by Arlen Pringle from PAX 2011. He includes some interesting notes about the various characters in the game, towards the middle of the article, and there's some new things discussed.

Here's a snip.

Magneto: Everyone I saw was dropping Magneto combos left and right, as it looks like his long Hard Attack loop in the air is gone, and his EM Disruptor is slower than it was previous. That being said, his new move which allows him to push and pull characters anywhere on screen is extremely good. Characters like Haggar and Tron are going to have a hell of a time moving in on him.

Sentinel: Looks like he can’t do the corner hard drive loop anymore, and maaaaaaybe Hyper Sentinel Force does less damage, although it’s hard to tell.

Nemesis: Is a beast. He does a huge amount of damage, has the most health in the game, and is a threat from almost anywhere on the screen. His rocket launcher can whiff on smaller opponents, but is the perfect height to hit jumping opponents in the crotch.

A lot of his normals that look unsafe aren’t, and his reach is two-thirds of the screen with those tentacles. He is the ultimate newbie character, with easy combos and straightforward moves.

His only weakness is his limited mobility, as his dash is worthless. I won’t even call it a dash. Maybe a jaunt or mosey. Without assists or X-Factor he is a goner, but with either of those resources available, he is extremely scary.

Taskmaster: My man. He got one new move, a blockable command throw where he stabs you and then shoots you. I’m still not sure what the use of this is in combos, but you can OTG assist after. He got no nerfs, and with the air X-Factor addition I think he will move up the ranks a bit.

Seth and Sven respond to 3sOE patch and DLC comments

Seth and Sven respond to 3sOE patch and DLC comments Capcom employees, Seth Killian and Christian Svensson responded to some complaints from fans about Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, regarding the online matchmaking and DLC options. Here's a quick recap.

Any news on 3rd strike patch for the broken online matchmaking? So frustrating not getting a game even with 40mb line :-( — Jonnybeadle

Seth Killian: We're trying to wrap a lot of issues together for upcoming patch. Should be good.

I don't understand why there can't be actual content added as DLC (music and colors don't count) Such as, the stages from the previous games... — Burning Typhoon

Svensson: Point one, who said we've divulged everything that's in the works for DLC on SF3?

Second, as for the DLC we are offering, as always, if you see value in it, please purchase it. If you don't, by all means, don't purchase it. It existing doesn't diminish the value of SF3:OE in the least, which is already one of the best values for money on XBLA or PSN.

I think what's going on here... is he's saying he doesn't find value in the current DLC.

And he's asking about ideas he's giving for DLC he considers more valuable. — Storm


Svensson: I totally get it. And I'm saying, somewhat cryptically, "keep giving feedback and perhaps at some point we'll have something he finds of value."
