Ask Capcom July 1 transcript: Hitboxes, Smash Bros. and Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Capcom employees Snow and Sven held another Ask Capcom session yesterday and an archive is up on YouTube. There wasn't a lot of discussion about their fighting games, but it did come up a bit. You can find a transcript of the notable details below.

• On the matter of showing hitboxes in fighting games, Sven said there are some people internally that are in favor of making this happen, and some people who aren't, adding that latter group feels this gives away too much, although this information often shows up on the web later on down the road.

• Sven said he's "totally down" with doing something with Smash Bros series.

• Christian reiterated what he said before about MvC3, that they still care a lot about the game, but continued to ask for patience.

• The SSF4 AE PC version DLC contains all of the costumes for each of the 5 characters in every pack. So there's 15 costumes per pack. You can check out this post for more of an explanation.

Combofiend & Filipino Champ join CompLexity / Cross Counter

Combofiend & Filipino Champ join CompLexity / Cross Counter Peter "Combofiend" Rosas and Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez have joined Mike Ross and Gootecks on the CompLexity / Cross Counter team.

Mike Ross had this to say about the newest additions to the team.

When compLexity gave me a chance to become player manager for the fighting game community I knew this would mean great things. With that I am happy to bring along Filipino Champ and Combofiend to the roster. These are two great players in both Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the Street Fighter 4 series. I feel that with these two players on board, people will begin to see the potential of what compLexity Cross Counter can bring to the scene.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Viewtiful Joe & Hulk combo videos

UGG-SIN2 has created two new combo videos and they were uploaded onto SMOAI2010's YouTube channel. Both are well done and feature characters that aren't quite as popular as the characters most of you are familiar with. The captions as usual are in Japanese. If you're into Viewtiful Joe, The Incredible Hulk, Marvel vs Capcom 3, or any combination of the three then this is something to invest time into.

Who Is Alpha joins the EventHubs staff

Who Is Alpha joins the EventHubs staff EventHubs has brought a new staff member on board to join Nyoronoru and I. You may have seen Who Is Alpha's name come up a few times the last couple of days. He's joining the team primarily as a news writer, but will also help revising and creating new guides and providing general updates to the site which haven't been touched in too long of a time.

Who Is Alpha had this to say about signing on.

You've probably seen me around in some way, but now I'm here to formally greet everyone. I'm always in the lab attempting to find new things for whatever character I'm currently using (Evil Ryu at the moment) and I'm always testing it out in Endless. If you haven't seen me on Xbox Live you've probably seen me on the forums or submitting tips to Catalyst. The most recent projects I've taken part in were the Guy guide and the Arclive guide. For those who haven't seen me at all and are asking "who is alpha?" then don't worry you'll be seeing a lot more of me around the site.

My main goal being a part of the EventHubs' staff is to make sure the guides here are as easy to read as possible, but deliver all the information you'll need to get your feet off of the ground. I'll be sure to cover the more advance tactics that are normally seen in the forums and I'll also be covering character match-up notes as well. I spent most of SFIV and SSFIV trying out every character for about a month or so to gain match-up experience. I'm hoping that since now I'm focusing on only one character I can dedicate more time and energy to helping everyone else grow here on the site.

Sven on PC Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition piracy, DRM removal

Sven on PC Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition piracy, DRM removal Capcom's Christian Svensson made a few posts about the PC version of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition being pirated, as it has hit a few websites ahead of the title's actual release. He also talks again about when the offline DRM will be removed and takes a few feature suggestions for SF3 Online Edition. Lastly, he follows up on the proposed stream law change which has been a popular subject as of late.

The PC version of SSF4 AE was leaked and the pirates posted it, is it possible to push the release date forward now? โ€” KRG

Svensson: That's unfortunate, but not unexpected. It's not possible to move the launch date for a variety of reasons.

Pirates will have their offline play only and no online features at all.

I heard the offline DRM limitations are still in the PC version of SSF4 AE, what gives?

Svensson: To clarify, I said the update would come "shortly after launch". We're still awaiting approval on the TU that officially removes it and that's likely to take a bit of time still.

PC SSF4 AE on Steam was listed for $26.79, but it went away. What happened? โ€” Andre

Svensson: It was a temporary screw up on Valve's part. It's been rectified.
