Street Fighter X Tekken 1.06 PC patch and DLC ready to go, waiting on Microsoft's signed files for Steam

Street Fighter X Tekken 1.06 PC patch and DLC ready to go, waiting on Microsoft's signed files for Steam Users have been asking questions regarding the Street Fighter X Tekken 1.06 patch on PC, specifically when it will become available. Sven addressed this question in the Ask Capcom thread over on Capcom Unity and has shed a bit of light on the current status.

According to Sven, the patch and the DLC are ready for download but Capcom cannot release the update until they can make it available on both Steam and Games for Windows Live simultaneously. Currently, Capcom is waiting on Microsoft to send a couple of signed files for the Steam version which should come in very soon.

Check out what Sven had to say on the matter below.

I just asked Derek for an update and here's what he sent:

The 1.06 PC Patch (and associated DLC) is approved by MSFT and ready to go. However, in order to actually release it, we need to simultaneously release on both GFWL and Steam. And for that, we need the signed .cat and .cfg files from MSFT for the Steam version. They haven’t sent them yet; they tried last week, but there was a "mishap". We should have them any day. That’s the only thing holding up release at this point.

The 1.07 and 1.08 patch source code was just received after the holidays, and Q-LOC is currently working on integrating it. 1.08 is the 2013 rebalance patch, which hasn't made it to consoles quite yet. No ETA on these until after 1.06 is live.

Injustice: Gods Among Us release date confirmed as April 16, Battle Edition announced - includes fight stick

Joystiq has posted information regarding the release date and the just announced Battle Edition for Injustice: Gods Among Us. The DC brawler will be released in North America on April 16 and April 19 in Europe.

The Battle Edition differs from the previously announced Collector's Edition (which can also be seen below), as it comes with full fledged arcade stick. This particular controller has a "adjustable illumination" function, so in case you don't want your fight stick to light up, you can change it around.

This edition will also come equipped with the 3 DLC costumes that are included in the Collector's Edition. If you're looking to pick this Battle Edition up, it will be available at GameStop and EB Games stores for $149.99 USD.

Does PS3 have noticeable slowdown for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3?

Does PS3 have noticeable slowdown for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Since Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's release, several players have said that there is a noticeable slowdown on the PlayStation 3.

This past weekend's Apex tournament was ran on the PS3 and a few top players mentioned on Twitter that was some noticeable slowdown on the setups at the event.

Here is what coL|Filipino Champ had to say about the slowdown after being asked if it was the monitors or the PS3s.

PS3 is just dropping frames to 45-50 fps (frames per second) instead of 60 fps.

After the jump, is an off-stream match from Apex that Arturo Sanchez filmed with a shaky cam that some viewers and even staff members here at EventHubs have been debating.

Some of the places people claim to see lag are the 5:37, 5:53 and 6:38 marks.

Street Fighter X Mega Man v2 releasing this Friday - adds MM2-style passwords, updates M. Bison fight and more

Since Street Fighter X Mega Man was released, many fans have been asking for some specific updates such as a way to save the game or to have a confirmation prompt before exiting or resetting the game.

Brelston on Capcom-Unity made a post today detailing the game's patch that will fix many of the issues that the game has. From it's relatively easy M. Bison fight to it's E Tank glitches.

Surprise! We spent the holiday break looking at your feedback and have since made a few adjustments to last month's SFxMM freebie. This update will also be on the house, available via the Mega Man group page.

So, what does this update... update? Well, for one, MM2-style passwords!

Among other minor tweaks that should make the overall experience a bit better:

-Confirmation prompt before exiting (ESC) or resetting (F12) the game
-E Tank glitch and various other bugs fixed
-Improved controller support (Game defaults to keyboard on launch; make sure controller is plugged in prior to opening the file, then go into Options menu and set keys)
-Take screenshots using F9
-M Bison buffed a bit (This place shall become your grave!)

No new content per se, but hopefully these minor updates will make the game easier to run and more enjoyable. This will arrive Friday around 5pm PT (8pm ET) so head to the Mega Man page and grab it! And of course, huge props to Zong Hui for the effort!

Note: We have identified known performance issues when running the game on Intel Integrated GPUs and as a result you may experience some slowdown on these machines. My home and work laptops are such machines and ran both the old and new versions without issue, but if you have experienced slowdown on a computer that really should be able to run this, that could be the reason.

First DLC Skullgirls character was 1/3 complete before team disbanded, XBLAFans article talks creation of Lab Zero, Slightly Different patch and more

First DLC Skullgirls character was 1/3 complete before team disbanded, XBLAFans article talks creation of Lab Zero, Slightly Different patch and more XBLAFans put together an excellent article that divulges the details on why the Skullgirls team was let go and how the initial creation of Lab Zero games came to be.

This post also doubles as an interview with CEO of Lab Zero Games, Peter Bartholow, and he gives quite a bit of insight on what's been going on since last June regarding Skullgirls.

“Lab Zero just…kind of happened,” he told XBLAFans today via email. “The team was going to lunch one day, and [was] frustrated with the situation, and I just kind of blurted out, ‘What if I made a new studio and we all went there?’ Much to my surprise (and horror), people said, ‘Yes, do that,’ so…I was kind of stuck.”

Bartholow’s big mouth had gotten him stuck with a new studio and the new title of CEO, one that he says “doesn’t feel ‘real’” even now, months later. It was real enough for Autumn, however; the publisher wanted the game’s original creators to be the ones to use one last continue at the game over screen that would have inspired less-dedicated developers to put the controller down and walk away. There was work to be done on a gargantuan patch, and Lab Zero was the only choice for the job.

Bartholow also dropped an interesting bit of info saying that the first DLC character for Skullgirls was 1/3 complete before the team was dropped.

“We all really want to make DLC characters, but it’s expensive and time-consuming. The first mysterious character was about 1/3rd complete when we were laid off. But between the attach rate for DLC and the loss of momentum caused by the drama, recouping the development costs or profiting seem difficult.”

Be sure to check out the full article over on XBLAFans as there is a ton of ground covered.
