Daigo not going to use Ryu in v2012 of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Daigo not going to use Ryu in v2012 of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition MCZ|Daigo Umehara had a short interview during Nagoya Street Battle #30, and he briefly talked about Ryu's changes and that he wouldn't be picking up the character again in v2012 of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

Here's a snip from the transcript Beastnote provided.

• He's not going to use Ryu.

• "[Ryu's Shoryuken changes] are meaningless." (everyone laughed)

• He wants to see Tokido fight Fuudo.

A little ways back, Daigo started an Akuma card, and some people think he'll switch over to him in v2012.

Tip from Chunstoppable and several anonymous readers.

Nagoya Street Battle 30 recap by Team Evil Geniuses

Nagoya Street Battle 30 recap by Team Evil Geniuses The Nagoya Street Battle 30 tournament has just ended (results) and Team EG has written up a complete recap of what went down. This is a great piece if you're interested in how certain teams outside of top 8 performed. Here's a grab from the article.

Against Team Mad Catz — Choco, Fubarduck and Kim definitely gave it their all. However, no other player in the tournament had as much momentum as MCZ.Mago had coming into Top 8. Throughout the earlier stages of the tournament, Mago redeemed his loss at SBO by completely decimating his opponents. In fact, all the way to Top 8, Mago only required the aid of Daigo and Tokido once. Against Fubarduck, Mago applied his trademark Fei Long pressure, as Fubarduck’s Yun just could not muster a defense. Then, although Choco and Kim mustered a round off him, Mago powered his way to eliminate the team.

Throughout the tournament, Team Mad Catz proved that they were the team to beat, as they powered their way to yet another NSB title, winning 15 out of 18 games — most of which were played by Mago. In fact, out of their 18 games, Tokido only played three times, as Daigo was only summoned once.

Can you combo a normal or special into pandora activation for a hard-hitting combo? Kinda like a one-time meterless tag cancel? — Infilament

Seth Killian: Nope, as it is currently, you can't combo into Pandora activation.

Since 3rd Strike SF III on XBLA and PSN is having a great sucess in sales will that increase the posibilities of having Capcom Vs SNK 2 realease on XBLA and PSN with a similar treatment of that of SFIII? — Antares

Christian Svensson: SF3 has been out exactly one week. We've got a lot of updates and such coming to SF3 still. It'll be a while before we're ready to talk about what could potentially be next. [Editor's note: This post was made 3 weeks ago.]

Are there any plans to bundle all the Costumes together for one low price, like how it was done on Steam, for XBL and the PSN? — Zenny Lee

Christian Svensson: No, there aren't any current plans. Maybe when and if bundles become possible on XBL marketplace we'll consider something like this on consoles but that's still probably some time well off in the future.

Banana Ken: SBO one of the worst tourney experiences of my life

Banana Ken: SBO one of the worst tourney experiences of my life TFA|Banana Ken has posted a blog about his experience with Super Battle Opera 2011. He talks about the issue that came up with him and teammate Hsien Chang where they originally had a spot for the tournament, but ended up playing a pre-tournament match to get a qualifying spot.

Here's a snip to get you started.

To many people, myself included, participating in SBO was the chance of a lifetime to represent the best the US has to offer. I was very happy to hear from many players that our team had the best chances of at least getting past the first round. I was very excited to see how far our skills can take us, even in such a brutal format like single-round, single-elimination teams like SBO. As a graduate student, I had to do work ahead of time, cancel meetings, and skip a couple day’s worth of courses to make the trip to Japan. I paid just over a thousand dollars for the ticket, and I separated another thousand to make sure I had enough for food, travel and other expenditures. We were ready to give our 100%.

Except we never got to try.

SBO (Tougeki) staff later apologized for what happened at the tournament, you can read their statement here.
