Final Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight Sentinel vs. Hsien-Ko

Final Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Showdown Spotlight Sentinel vs. Hsien-Ko The final showdown spotlight for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is up now, it features Sentinel and Hsien-Ko. This has been a great series from Sumoslamman, giving us a glimpse of the characters and how they play before the title was released. Here's one more copy and paste.

Sentinel's Play Style: Sentinel’s normals are very interesting; his medium attacks have armor and his heavy attacks are high and low laser blasts. He has the largest hit box in the game, so he can seem like a big punching bag at times but if you use him right you can easily keep opponents away with his Sentinel Force specials, Rocket Punch and heavy normals. Flight Mode helps him to extend his air combos and you can even combo out of Hyper Sentinel Force for some extra damage!

Hsien-Ko's Play Style: Hsien-Ko has some very interesting qualities, but first, her normals are top notch. They do great damage, have great range and she can combo all six of her standing and crouching attacks. Her Senpu Bu swing specials helps her get close to her opponent while dealing damage and her Henkyo Ki gong special reflects projectiles back at their sender. Both of her damage-dealing hypers OTG, making her a real threat once she's got you on the ground. While she seems a little unwieldy at first, if you can overcome her slow movement speed, Hsien-Ko offers a lot of fun and damaging options for the creative player.

Phoenix vs. Chun-Li Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

Phoenix vs. Chun-Li Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown A bit of background information and an overview of both Phoenix and Chun-Li's play styles in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was written up by Sumoslamman. This is the second to last Showdown Spotlight on, the final one will be up soon. Here's a snip.

Phoenix's Play Style: DO NOT GET HIT! Period. Phoenix has the lowest health in the game and nearly any enemy hyper combo is enough to take her out. However, she hits like a monster, her fireballs hunt you down from a screen away, and she has traps to keep you out of her face. Her instant teleports create some mean pressure traps when combined with her Telekinetic Shot and her Phoenix Rage hyper is easy to combo into and does great damage. If she does get caught on the defensive her 8-way air dash, that teleport we talked about earlier, and her flight capabilities will get her out of trouble. And remember: Don’t get hit!

Chun-Li's Play Style: Chun-Li can’t take a hit but she can dish them out in droves. Her triangle jump and triple jumps give her tons of aerial mobility and her dash is so fast it’s difficult to react to. She has some great ground pressure strings that combo into her Hoyokusen hyper which can be followed up by some mean air combos. Also her Hyakuretsukyaku is an amazing assist, locking down enemies so her teammates can cross up and start doing some damage. If you like fast, hard hitting characters, Chun-Li’s the girl for you.

Excellent Adventures: Season 2, Ep. 16, The End?

A new episode of The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross is up on the Cross Counter YouTube page.

Here's a blurb from the duo about the video.

Over the course of the last few episodes, Gootecks and Mike Ross hit rock bottom amid the salty ocean of XBox Live. Could this possibly be the last episode of Excellent Adventures... EVER?? (before the AE DLC???) If so, our heroes try to go out on a high note... with a BET!

Tip from Shichi and Engrishlifes.

Midnight release events for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Midnight release events for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Many stores are holding midnight release parties for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There are so many happening in fact that GameStop and PlayNTrade have build locators just to help you find events in your area.

Also, Capcom-Unity detailed Wal-Mart's midnight release/tournament event plans where you can score a poster and redeemable Unity points. These are just a few of MANY things happening around the globe today and through the weekend when the game is released else where, so you should be able to find something in your area if you look around.

If you're still on the fence about picking up the BradyGames MvC3 strategy guide, do yourself a favor and thumb through it when you're buying the game. It's one of the best printed guides I've ever seen, the frame data, layout and combos are very helpful — and you get all of this information from day one. Some strategy guides for fighting games are hardly even worth the paper they're printed on, but this one is excellent. You can check out a preview of it here.

Online stats for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be reset, Third Strike update

Online stats for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be reset, Third Strike update The online data, like wins/loss records and leaderboards, for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 may be reset, according to Capcom V.P., Christian Svensson. The street date for MvC3 has been broken and numerous people have picked up the game ahead of its February 15, 2011 U.S. release date.

Also, Svensson offered a rough time table when Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition would be released, along with touching on a few other subjects. Here's the skinny from the Unity Boards.

Will I get banned playing for playing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 online early before release, and will the stats and leaderboards reset on the release date?

Svensson: If it's a pirate copy, probably. Microsoft is pretty good at detecting that sort of thing over Xbox Live. If it's from a store that broke street date, probably not.

Not sure about resetting data. That might be a good thing for us to do. I'll talk to some folks Monday and see what we can do about that.

When are we going to get any information about Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition? — Crazy-Legs

Svensson: You won't start to see much until a 4-6 months before what we have planned as release. That will certainly be within 2011. 8)
