Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Akuma guide updated

Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Akuma guide updated The Third Strike guide for Akuma in 3S:Online Edition was recently completed by myself here on Eventhubs.

It's a fairly basic guide, but it should help you get started with Akuma if you are brand new to him. More guides will be cleaned up and added in the future. Here's a piece from the guide.

Akuma players live by a basic philosophy, "Win quickly, die quickly." He's an offensive juggernaut, but the price you pay for this is that he has the worst stamina and stun ranking in the game.

Akuma's moves have good priority, he hits hard and has quick ground and air options. But when you start taking a lot of hits, it's easy to get stunned and killed.

Despite these shortcomings, he holds an upper mid-tier position, which is natural considering some of his dominating tactics.

GamesCom Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer interview

Back at GamesCom in Germany, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 producer, Ryota Niitsuma spoke on the Capcom-Unity live stream about the game he's working on for over 30 minutes. There entire segment has been uploaded to YouTube now.

Desk tackles EVO moment #37, Daigo parry, one handed

Yep, Desk went there.

He added this note about the video.

This is hella more difficult when facing left because of the distance between the stick and the buttons. Also, I was scratching my head, not picking my nose, honest.

Level 3 interviews Third Strike theme remixer Simon Viklund

Level 3 interviews Third Strike theme remixer Simon Viklund Level 3 recently did an interview with Simon Viklund, the composer who remixed all of the Third Strike character themes in Online Edition. In it he reveals some of the background behind the development of the new music and some changes that had to be done to satisfy release requirements. A snip of the interview has been posted below and you can catch the rest on Level 3's website.

Dyoshii: 3rd Strike had a very unique music style compared to the other Street Fighter games and had music that you'd expect from nightclubs of that time. That said, the 'Features' 3rd Strike Online trailer had a rather prominent dubstep sound to it. What direction has the music in 3rd Strike Online gone, have you stuck with the original style or created something more of a "spirital successor" to the original music?

Viklund: It's a little bit of everything - sometimes I've stuck with the original style but sometimes I've gone more experimental and done something entirely different. It's been a case of looking at each arena's visuals and listening to its music, and determining how I could bring something new to the music that would still fit with the old graphics.

The tracks that were drum'n'bass in the original game are kept as drum'n'bass - although I've toned down the jazz elements and made it a harder style of drum'n'bass. The house stuff is, as you say, club style music of its time - in my interpretation I just toned down the "nu soul" elements and made it a harder style of house to make the tracks go more in line with my style of music and today's club music in general.

The interesting stuff was the tracks that I felt challenged me to reinterpret them completely and do something experimental - like "Theme of Q" and "The Longshoreman". You'll have to play the game to see what I did with those.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE: Error1's tool assisted Guile combos

Error1 has created a tool assisted combo video for Guile which is borderline amazing. It exploits Guile's notorious recovery along with his just as ridiculous charge time to create some amazing combos. Once again the video is tool assisted and not hacked so all the combos are truly possible.

The reason these combos are possible is because of SF4's input leniency. This allows for certain moves that have been inputted way ahead of time to still come out. In this case this allow for him to already have inputted the sonic boom and before that sonic boom even comes out he can begin charging a second one. This is of course extremely difficult to do for any human, but since this is tool assisted this can be exploited perfectly without any human error to conflict with the combos. Be sure to hit the jump to see the explanation on how the sonic booms are done.

Input lag in the PS3 release of Street Fighter 3 Online Edition? Seth says no

Input lag in the PS3 release of Street Fighter 3 Online Edition? Seth says no Arcade UFO's Ryan Harvey thought he noticed some input lag on the PlayStation 3 release of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition and has been talking about his experiences on Twitter.

Ryan: We are playing the PS3 version of 3SO now and there is hella input lag :(. I really hope the 360 version is playable!

This is OFFLINE matches btw, not online. We also tried setting the GGPO delay option to "Zero".

Capcom's Seth Killian left a brief tweet of his own to respond to the matter.

Seth Killian: No input lag according to any of our debug tools. Lots of people playing, let's see what's what on other setups.

Ryan: I'll try it on a couple of setups at home later to confirm, but we're playing on the same cabinet that SBO Qualifiers ran on with zero lag.

What have your experiences been so far, have you seen any input lag? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

When PC Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition mods go horribly wrong

Kyudaime noticed a new set of videos from Swordzzzzz showing some ridiculous mods for the PC release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.
