In-depth video guide to modding a Mad Catz TE FightStick

You've probably seen a number of guides on how to modify a Mad Catz Tournament Edition FightStick at this point, but BrickAttack of SixButton.co.uk posted a really nice tutorial showing lots of detailed information on how to swap out the artwork, repaint and make your TE stick look really snazzy. It'll also help you avoid some of the "gotcha!" moments that can be frustrating to deal with when you're going through this process.

He skips over the buttons and joystick swapping, which have been covered extensively by other people, and instead offers a lot of handy tips to get you on the right path to customizing your stick with new colors and such. Note, this clip contains NSFW language.

Niitsuma says that New York Comic Con preparations are complete

Niitsuma says that New York Comic Con preparations are complete Niitsuma recently tweeted that the preparations for the upcoming New York Comic Con are complete and that all that needs to be practiced is the UMvC3 stage show. It is strongly suspected that the last four characters will be revealed over the next several days; Nova, Frank West, Rocket Raccoon and Phoenix Wright.

Niitsuma: とりあえずNYCコミコンの準備、出来る限りの事は終わった。あとは現地のリハーサルで何とかしよう

Translation: I have completed as much of the NYCC presentation as I can for now. All that is left is the on-site rehearsal and other miscellaneous things.

Last year at New York Comic Con 2010 four characters were revealed. Those were Arthur, Spencer, MODOK and Magneto. These characters were not playable at the event, but trailers and images were still released anyway.

It's highly possible that it will play out the same way, but with the game being this close to release it's very unlikely that the revealed characters will be unplayable on the show floor.

Here is the link to Capcom's complete on-site schedule for NYCC.

Ono discusses Poison's gender and history with EGM

Ono discusses Poison's gender and history with EGM Electronic Gaming Monthly posted an interview with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono concerning Poison's gender. The discussion starts from her somewhat humble beginnings to how she's blown up as a pretty popular character in her own right as of late.

Here's a snip to get you going.

EGM: In talking to members of the trans community who have an investment or general interest in the character of Poison, one major concern I’ve heard has come from some of the videos shown for Street Fighter X Tekken in regards to win quotes. For example, in one video that was shown, both Ryu and Chun-Li made statements toward Poison regarding her not being a “real” woman in one way or another.

Capcom rep: Can I jump in really quick on this one? Those win quotes came from an earlier point in the game’s development, and while we haven’t publicized it too much, we’re actually working very closely with GLAAD. We’re very sensitive as far as not wanting to alienate anybody as Ono-san said, so we’re trying to be careful in that regard. It’s been an education process for us, but we do want people to know that we’re now working with GLAAD to make sure that anything that might be offensive has been very tailored to not be.

EGM: Ah — I’m really glad to hear that.

At the end of the day, in the entertainment industry, you can’t go about willy-nilly and not be sensitive to these sort of things. Our goal here is to make sure we’re caring for all of our audience members, and make sure we’re not stepping on any toes. We want to make sure that the Poison fans out there—no matter which way they see her—are satisfied that the character is being portrayed in a way that suits their idea of the character, but also in a way that isn’t insensitive or demeaning in any way. So, we do take our responsibility in matters like this very seriously, and want to make sure we’re as inclusive as possible.

Street Fighter X Tekken impressions from Portal Versus

Street Fighter X Tekken impressions from Portal Versus The guys at Portal Versus got some hands on time with Street Fighter X Tekken and posted some impressions from the Brazil Game Show. It's in another language, but the Shadowloo crew provided a translation to look over. Here's a snip from the latter article.

Game engine

- The damage system still needs many adjustments.
- Crouch Tech Works.
- Option Select Works.
- He was using Plinks in all of his combos. He isn’t sure if they work or not, but the combos were coming out just fine.
- He was able to safe jump some characters of the cast (Sagat).
- The games has a rolling system for techable knockdowns.
- The moves that have charging properties, can be cancelled into dash.
- The Tekken roster seems to have a fireball dodging mechanic.
- There are links in the games, but they are different from Sf4.
- The tag cancel system seemed a little weird on block. As an example he mentions that a blocked Hp Srk from Ryu that was tag cancelled wasn’t safe. The opponent can reverse Srk and it will hit both characters.
- The mashing system is just like Sf4, the reversal window is huge.
- The Chain Combos (Cross Rush) aren’t cancelled into special moves, only in Super Moves like Super Art or Cross Art.
