Shoutouts to the frequent news tip contributors

Shoutouts to the frequent news tip contributors You'll often notice a list at the bottom of stories here on EventHubs with the names of people who submitted the story into the site.

We get a lot of emails every single day, and our staff checks through these to see what's going on in the community. We rely on our readers to help keep us in the know with what's happening, but since this system has been implemented, three individuals have really stood out in particular.

These guys have went above and beyond countless times to send us tips, so we felt it was time to give them a public shoutout. So please join me in thanking Rafael2487, Fawaz and Alex_MMorales for the efforts they've put in to keep the community up to date with what's happening.

Also, each of these guys will receive a modest cash prize. It's not even remotely close enough to buy a yacht, but they'll be able to pick up a new game from a retail store with it.

If this news tip thing sounds completely foreign to you, it's all handled through the contact form here on the site, which is on the right-hand side of every page. If you spot anything interesting in the community, feel free to send it in — and please include your email address or username, so we can credit you — and one of our staff members will check it out.

While I'm naming these three individuals, there are countless other people who have sent in tips over the years, and we also want to say thanks to them for taking the time to do so. We have more stuff planned in the future to reward frequent contributors, whether they send in news tips, do guides or add something else to the site. You haven't been forgotten, so stay tuned.

Optic blast! C. Viper's new move in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3

C. Viper has apparently teamed up with Dr. Evil and can now shoot laser beams in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, as DimmuMaiden and Thisluksinfektd pointed out in the clip below, around the 5 minute mark.

It goes by somewhat fast, so here are a few screen grabs.

Of all of the new moves to give C. Viper, this was probably one of the least expected attacks, something that people can't help but draw comparisons to Cyclops with.

IGN does a Street Fighter 3 3s Online Edition walkthrough with Capcom staff

IGN did a Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition walkthrough with Seth Killian and Derek Neal. This starts off recapping a lot of details you've heard before.

One of the most interesting parts of the video is that around the 4 minute mark, they give a really nice look at The Vault area of the game which has the unlockable backgrounds, movies, songs and more. After that they show how the various modes have their own challenges, including Tournament Mode. Once you get past this point, if you've been keeping up with things you can safely close down the video, as it's back to the stuff you've probably heard before, sans that uploads to YouTube should be up minutes after the file has been transferred.
