Famitsu review scores for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Kmart $25 credit offer

Famitsu review scores for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Kmart $25 credit offer The review numbers from Famitsu magazine's take on Marvel vs. Capcom 3 were posted by 1Up this afternoon.

- Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (8/8/8/9, 33 points): "I like the large variety to the characters," one reviewer began. "The system hasn't changed much; it's more of a natural evolution from MvC2 or Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Being able to work the characters just the way you want requires a lot of game time, but combos are generally easy to link together, and beginners can get a decent enough foothold with the simple control mode."

Another editor agreed that "there isn't a great deal novel here, but the game builds upon the Vs. series to make an overall great fighting package."

Also, sticking with the MvC3 theme, Kmart stores are offering 25,000 in Shop Your Way Rewards points, which translates into $25 USD back, when you purchase the game through Kmart. This offer runs from February 15-19, and you'll also score an 8” X 11” poster with the game, too.

Heavily revised Dan Super Street Fighter 4 guide

Heavily revised Dan Super Street Fighter 4 guide Nyoronoru has polished off the latest Super Street Fighter 4 guide, and this one covers the Saikyo master, Dan.

A little tongue-in-cheek, this guide still has some very helpful combos and tips to help you improve if this is a fighter you're interested in learning. Here's the obligatory grab from the page.

Dan is a unique character in that he is canonically the worst character in the game, but it is quite possible to win and even dominate with him. He has an okay reversal game, a good armor-breaking move, a decent approach move along with some frame traps (and a good Focus Attack). The only problem is that his normal moves are absolutely horrible, unquestionably the worst ever with nearly all of them being incredibly slow with very few being able to combo into special moves at anywhere but super-close range.

Dan is the only character with the deadly Legendary Taunt though. He also has the best and most varied Personal Actions in the game. Though he might have been completely ignored in previous Street Fighter titles, Dan is here to prove he's no joke.

X-23 vs. Felicia Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

X-23 vs. Felicia Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown Profiles of X-23 and Felicia were uploaded to by Sumoslamman. As with past articles, this has an overview of both fighter's powers, history and play styles.

X-23's Play Style: While Laura may be a clone of Wolverine, she doesn’t play like him in the least. Wolverine is pure rush; X-23 is a healthy dose of rush with some mix-ups thrown in. Her normal moves have deceiving range because of those razor-sharp claws and she has a few neat little hops that can help her cross up her opponent or create some nasty combos near the ground. She also has some dash attacks that help negotiate space, hit low, OTG and can be canceled if your opponent catches on to your gameplan. Plus her hypers, barring her Level 3, can easily fit into her combos. What’s not to love?

Felicia's Play Style: Because this pretty kitty relies on getting in close to do her damage, she has a couple of moves to get her there. Rolling Buckler gives her a few options to close the distance but her Delta Kick is where it’s at, getting her up out of the range of most projectiles and then putting her quickly to the far side of the screen right in her opponent’s face. Like X-23, Felicia has a low assist that will do wonders for unblockable setups and her Kitty’s Helper hyper is a ton of fun to watch as one of her furry companions leaps around the screen chasing down the enemy, doing damage, and interrupting attacks. Felicia definitely gets by with a little help from her friends.

Playing H-O-R-S-E with combos in Super Street Fighter 4

Lukenessmonster and Snoooootch came up with a fun game for Super Street Fighter 4. It's a take on the basketball game of H-O-R-S-E where if you miss a shot, you get a letter. The SSF4 twist is that one player performs a combo, then the next person has to replicate it, and if they're unable to do so, they get a letter. Here's a video explaining the game.

Note: Under no circumstances should anyone play this game against Desk (Biffotasty).
