The Excellent Asian Adventures of Xian and Zhi Ep. 1: Fusion!

Xian and Zhi begin their own excellent adventure. This excellent adventure is a little different though since they plan to play against the best as much as possible while picking their best characters. They roll through the competition and play against some well known names while giving the people some commentary. It's reminiscent of the early episodes done by Gootecks and Mike Ross and is just as enjoyable.

Here's a direct quote from the description.

The CC:Asia team log onto Japanese Xbox Live to hunt Grand Master T.Hawks for PP points, when they run into the bastard lovechild of Mago and Daigo. Can Dragonball Fusion save the day??

Super Street Fighter 4 AE retail sells 300,000, basically meets sales goal

Super Street Fighter 4 AE retail sells 300,000, basically meets sales goal In a financial report released by Capcom today, they stated that the retail release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition sold 300,000 units in about a week's time. It doesn't appear that DLC numbers were given in the report, but Capcom mentioned that the title, "basically achieved projected sales."

It's hard to compare these current sales numbers with their previous fighters, as the DLC release was available long before the retail version, and the retail sales numbers for the game are only for a short period of time.

Regardless, it sounds like Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition performed reasonably well.

The company also reported a 37 percent decrease in sales, but despite that, their net income increased by $4.35 million. Basically, it sounds like Capcom as a company is still doing pretty well, and their fighting games are selling at a nice pace, which is good news for us in the community.

Ono elaborates a bit on Street Fighter X Tekken's net code, not GGPO or Street Fighter 4

Ono elaborates a bit on Street Fighter X Tekken's net code, not GGPO or Street Fighter 4 Street Fighter X Tekken will not be using the current GGPO's or the Street Fighter 4 series' net code, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono mentioned recently on SiliconEra.

"There are still some kinks that we’re working out with the netcode. I can tell you officially were not using the actual GGPO netcode that you know and love in its current form," Ono answered.

"I can also say it is not using the Street Fighter IV netcode as is. There are going to be distinct changes and improvements. I can’t talk about those improvements or the system right now. Think of this as I’m throwing a worm on a hook and I’m going to reel you back in so you’ll come back and talk to us again!"

Ono is definitely dancing around the subject here. From the above, and past statements, what do you think he has up his sleeve? A variation of Street Fighter 4's net code, something based off of GGPO, a unique approach entirely or a mix of all three? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
