Many of the bugs in the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale demo have already been addressed

Many of the bugs in the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale demo have already been addressed Paul-Anthony LaCen from DualShockers interviewed Omar kendall the game director for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale where he discusses the focus of the beta, updates and some new offense mechanics.

Below is a short excerpt from the article, check out the full post over DualShockers website.

P: Due how early the beta build was, a lot of the complaints were about things that SuperBot had already fixed. The use of a more stable build may allow a lot of the superfluous topics and complaints to take a backseat to useful gameplay feedback. Is there any intention to maybe grant players access to a later build for the beta? Or is that out of the question, especially due to the leak that resulted from just an early build?

O: The beta code currently being tested is rather old in terms of buginess and gameplay. Our intention for this phase of the beta is to test various network issues, and many of the rough areas you’re experiencing in the beta have already been addressed in the most recent internal builds. We will continue to update the beta with improvements to all areas of the game, including stability and gameplay, in preparation for our release.

Richard Nguyen's Street Fighter X Tekken mini-guide for Lei features a semi-infinite

Eternal Rival's Richard Nguyen sent in a mini-guide for Lei in Street Fighter X Tekken. You can check out notes on Lei's move, various combos and even a really interesting loop with his Orchid Palm.

What I discovered is that Lei also has a Palm semi-infinite. You can set this off from a tag cancel from many different moves. For my team of Lei/Bryan, I would do any combo ending with a Snake Pit (hcf+p) from Bryan and then tag cancelling off the first hit, in which I then do a hp-palm (qcf+hp), and then repeated mp-palms (qcf+mp) with Lei.

This is only a semi-infinite because you cannot connect palms once you get your opponent into the corner. So this combo is best worked the closer Lei's back is to the corner.

Sounding off: Maximilian is killing the fighting game community?

Maximilian shared a lot of thoughts on the current state of the fighting game community and its past history in a recent video. Spurred by a negative message he received on Xbox Live, he wanted to open up some dialogue about his contributions to the scene and where things have evolved.

This is a really interesting listen, as you get to hear some of the roots of the scene and how things have changed over the years.

Persona 4 Arena's arcade mode is abbreviated story mode, 30 challenges per character

Persona 4 Arena's arcade mode is abbreviated story mode, 30 challenges per character Persona 4: Arena's arcade mode is actually an abbreviated story mode for the game, but with some important differences, namely there are separate plot lines for all of the game's characters, and you actually have to put some effort into beating it.

The game's story mode is pretty much a cake walk, as cast members are given a powerful default combo which can be done by button mashing, according to SiliconEra.

While Persona 4 fans will dive right into story mode, there is a another way to experience Persona 4 Arena’s plot. Arcade mode covers the same events with before battle banter that explains who Labyrs is. Of course, arcade mode isn’t as detailed. You won’t see what any other Persona characters are thinking, but you’ll get the gist of what happened when Yu returned to Inaba. Arcade mode has separate storylines for each of the Persona 4 Arena fighters.

The catch is arcade mode has actual fights. You’ll need to figure out a few combos, learn to roll through attacks, and understand how to cancel moves to clear the eight bouts in arcade mode. Story mode, on the other hand, is mostly a pushover. Persona 4 Arena gives most character (Naoto being an exception) a powerful canned combo.

By simply mashing the light button you can make Yu chain sword slashes, summon his persona for a lightning slide attack, and (providing you have enough SP) finish using Ziodyne. Elizabeth’s chain combo juggles an enemy with Maragidyne launches them with Magarudyne and finishes with a mid-air Maziodyne blast. Not too shabby, right? Using the same dial-a-combo is ineffective when you’re fighting a human, but against the story mode controlled computer enemies it seems like that’s enough.

There's also a 5 minute tutorial to introduce new players to the game, but on top of that, Arc System Works threw in 30 challenges similar to the ones you've seen in recent Capcom fighters, starting off with basic special/super moves and working their way up into more advanced combos.

Dieminion's thoughts going into Super Battle Opera 2012 this weekend

Dieminion's thoughts going into Super Battle Opera 2012 this weekend BrokenTier's Dieminion posted his thoughts going into Super Battle Opera 2012. He talks various topics from his teammates, the one game format and much more. In particular he notes how he is not relying on his teammates to help him win, but is relying on himself to win for the team.

Here's a small excerpt.

I am not relying on my teammates to help me win, I am relying on myself to win for my team

USA has not had a great showing at Tougeki in previous years. Perhaps it could be because of the one game format that has been Tougeki and the Japanese tournament standard for years. I am looking to change that this time around. Confident you say? Confidence is something you need to be able to compete at a high level. Something that has brought me to the level that I am now. Going into Tougeki being a player with a big name, I know that my opponents are going to be prepared when it comes time. I know that players have been studying and analyzing traits and habits of my game and developing a counter strategy. I have been doing the same, taking some time each day to discover new techniques that none or few have seen.

Check out the full article over on BrokenTier's blog.
