Street Fighter X Tekken PC patch 1.06 development basically done, should be submitted to Microsoft shortly Derek over on Capcom-Unity posted a blog to update everyone on the current status of Street Fighter X Tekken patch v1.06. The development for both platforms Steam and Games For Windows Live is basically done and they should be sent into Microsoft for approval which normally takes around two weeks.

Don't remember what's in patch 1.06? Hit the jump to check out the patch notes.

There are two different versions of the DLC to talk about: one set for Steam, and one for Games For Windows LIVE. For the GFWL DLC, development is basically done, and our team should be able to submit it to Microsoft for approval shortly. Microsoft's approval timelines can vary pretty dramatically, but they generally take around 2 weeks.

For the Steam DLC, the team is currently working with the folks at Valve to get all the backend pieces set up. Once that process is done, and we've had a chance to test it, that batch of DLC will be ready for submission to Microsoft as well.

As a reminder, this next DLC release will be accompanied on both platforms by a title update, which will bring both the GFWL versions and the Steam versions of the game up to console patch 1.06. Look forward to it!

Where are Kazuya's limbs? Customization glitch in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 leaves characters limbless

Dragon1224crests and Flashfoward88 have uploaded footage of a strange customization glitch in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It seems as though after customizing a character, if you proceed to customize another, there is a chance that all of the costumes from the previous character will overwrite the second character's.

When selecting the glitched character for battle that character will appear to have no limbs. You can see Kazuya without arms or legs in the first video and Leo without legs in the second.

It has also been reported that when trying to fix the glitched character in customization mode, the game will actually freeze up.

EventHubs asks: What would you do to improve fighting games and our community? - Community responses

EventHubs asks: What would you do to improve fighting games and our community? - Community responses In our latest EventHubs asks we addressed the topic of improving the fighting game community and the games we play. Below are some of the responses from our readers that could prove beneficial to the growth of our community.

Only a select few were chosen from the 157 comments we received but that doesn't mean the others were not valid. The comment section of our post is filled with many great ideas so be sure to check it out.

Of the suggestions featured here and those provided in the comments, do you feel taking those actions could potentially improve the fight game community? Leave your opinions below.

Have basic character tutorial vids on disc at launch. Tutorials would suggest a style of play that suits a character. Built in command lists are nice, but not worth much if a new player doesn't know how the moves should be applied in game. Highlight videos from recent tournaments should also be available through xbl, psn through the game menu. Seeing tourney level play can inspire new players to learn more about the game. The fighting game base grew greatly because of all the information put out by eventhubs, srk, ipw, etc. If the information could be placed a button press away, more players would have a deeper understanding of the game(s), and commit to a title longer than a month. — Triplefierce

Play and support the games you like.
Don't let a pro shape you into thinking a game it's bad just because they don't prefer it. that kills games, and their potential growth.
The sheep mentality has to go. that also kills games.
The constant, pointless bandwagoning has to go. that makes the scene look absolutely retarded.
The whining and bickering about game A better than game B kills the scene. embrace the games coming out.
Support the scene. Appreciate. Assimilate.
Stop arguing with people just because they like a game that you don't like.
At times, there are people who truly embrace and love FGs, and FGCs, then you have people that are actually cancer to the community, yet they claim they're all about it.
This community is far from a haven. — Trainingdummy
