Stone Ocean's Jolyne Kujo and Hermes Costello confirmed for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

The Salt Mine posted an article recently with a bit of information concerning Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. According to a picture recently released in an issue of Japanese manga series Shonen Jump, Stone Ocean's Jolyne Kujo and Hermes Costello have been confirmed as playable characters in the upcoming Jojo title.

Jolyne's stand, Stone Free, is capable of breaking Jolyne and itself into strands of string. This power has high utility value in the manga. Hermes stand is called Kiss and has the ability to duplicate objects using a stamp, and by removing the stamp she can force the duplicated objects to "reassemble" and damage themselves.

The Shonen Jump scan also reveals a new stage based on the prison that held the aforementioned characters in the story line. The stage is called Green Street Dolphin and will have a particular hazard of a storm raining down poisonous frogs that players will need to look out for when fighting upon it.

Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 patch notes part 1 - Street Fighter cast members

Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 patch notes part 1 - Street Fighter cast members Updated: A note from Dawgtanian, Street Fighter X Tekken's UK community manager, has been added into the story and all of the changelogs have been finalized.

A new blog covering changes made in Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 to the Street Fighter portion of the cast was just posted.

This has details for Ryu, Ken, Guile, Abel, Chun-Li, Cammy, Sagat, Dhalsim, Poison, Hugo, Ibuki, Rolento, Zangief, Rufus, Vega, Balrog, Juri, M. Bison, Akuma, Sakura, Blank, Guy, Cody, Elena and Dudley.

The blog also notes that the Tekken cast will be detailed in a blog in the next few days. Here is Dawgtanian's note about the changes. Hit the jump to check out the rest and the full list of changes.

There are quite a lot of changes to meter building in particular.
This is to tackle the issue of players being able to charge attack dash cancel which allowed them to build meter whilst running down the clock.

However you will notice many attacks build MORE meter than previously, but only when the move connects with the opponent. This not only encourages more offensive strategies, but also offers less of a reward for those trying to run down the clock, a style of play which players complained was dominating the game and causing too many time out situations. In some instances the meter gain is nearly doubled on hit!

Coupled with the already announced change to how quickly health regenerates, players should see a significant drop in the number of time-outs occurring.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the Wii U features touchscreen controls, has distinct frame rate issues During a pre-Tokyo Game Show event at Namco Bandai's headquarters in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Katsuhiro Harada the producer of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 demonstrated a few of the Wii U's touch screen cuts. Similar to how other games are such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter X Tekken on the PS Vita or Super Street Fighter 4 on the 3DS where you tap the screen to get certain moves to come out.

Harada noted that some moves such as the Electric Wind Godfist will not be executable as shortcuts though.

It is also being reported that the Wii U version also is having distinct frame rate issues that were easily noticible during the matches. It's uncertain if this will be in the final build of the game however.

$5,000 prize pool for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's free to enter event at MLG Dallas

Major League Gaming announced that they would be having a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale tournament at their upcoming MLG Fall Championships in Dallas, Texas on November 2nd-4th.

Most importantly though, this will be a free to enter tournament that will featured a $5,000 prize pool. The format of the tournament has not been made clear as of yet, just earlier this week Seth Killian said he thought 2v2 was the best when playing serious as a 4 person free for all was a bit too random.

As another small reminder, the open beta for non PlayStation Plus members starts this upcoming October 23.

What are you thoughts on how this event should be ran? 1v1, 2v2, 4 person free for all? Let us know in the comment section below.

Dead or Alive 5 mousepads are... curvy

Coming soon to Japan are some rather... curvy Dead or Alive 5 themed mousepads, featuring Ayane, Kasumi and Hitomi. A few years back, it was a bit of a thing for Japanese companies to release mousepads with "enhancements" for PC users to rest their hands on.

Not shy about this kind of thing, Tecmo Koei jumped onto the bandwagon and is offering up their own flavor of Dead or Alive 5 themed mousepads. They are set to be released in early December 2012, here are a few screens.

These boobies products will set you back a bit though, as they cost 4,200 yen or about $53 USD each.
