Yang 100-hit Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition combo by Desk

Desk had this to say about his latest footage posted to YouTube.

Yang joins Chun-Li and Abel in being one of the few characters able to max out the combo counter in SSFIV:AE. Although the combo registers 100 hits, the counter cannot display anything over 99.

Frame precision is required for pretty much every hit in this combo. Yang must walk forward between every jab outside of his super and also for a few frames after every dash during. The jab into super at the end is also a 1-frame link.

Seth: Capcom, community's opinion of top tier in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is close

Seth: Capcom, community's opinion of top tier in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is close God's Beard on the NeoGAF forums posted an interview with Seth Killian. The topics covered here are pretty board, touching on Capcom's upcoming fighting games and some of their current ones, but it's a solid read, offering a bit of behind the scenes insight and a few other random fun facts. Here's a snip.

[Speaking of Marvel vs. Capcom 3] I know that earlier in the year you were asking the community what their opinions on top tiers were, what were Capcom's internal top 5 characters?

I was mostly just talking with some old friends rather than trying to conduct some kind of secret poll, but Capcom generally stays away from discussing that kind of thing because it makes people think there's some law or absolute reality to a tier list "because Capcom said so." Even if we did say exactly what we thought, it's only our opinion and everyone else is playing the same game. Pre release, of course we balance against our internal views with some input from location tests. After release, we balance considering the same tournament results the rest of the community is seeing. In terms of the top tier, my feeling is that the community and Capcom's internal perspective are pretty close.

SFIII: 3rd Strike - Game Spot versus league battle (10th Dan)

Just in time for Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition's release The Shend uploaded a video showcasing some of the best in the 3s scene in Japan. This is a video of the 10th Dan in the Versus League Battles that are held in Japan. There are 10 levels in the league battle before the player and their character are forever locked in a ranking that few obtain. The 10th Dan battles always showcase the best of the best and this showing is no exception. The video contains great players such as Yamazaki (Twelve), Kei (Yang), Mori B (Ken), Vanao (Ryu), Pierrot (Ken), and YSB (Hugo) who all have amazing and clutch matches with each other. To top things off the commentary is top notch. Be sure to watch both videos in preparation for 3sOE's release tomorrow (PS3) and the 24th (Xbox 360). Hit the jump for the conclusion.

• A video showing all of the character's in SSF4 AE doing Dan's Legendary Taunt, via a move swap, was posted by TheSakuraAkuma.

• Stiffler2100 put up a new SSF4 AE Gouken montage showing highlights from various online matches.

• Many people wrote in about a horrible video featuring a wrestler guy who mimics a ton of Street Fighter moves. This either falls into the so bad it's good category, or so bad it's unwatchable. Tip from Saiferoth, Mrdrofficer, Ralphg86 and Throwryuken.

• TippingForties put up footage showing the Trish Peekabo glitch in MvC3 being used online, titled Team Captive Audience. Mentioned by Rafael2487.

Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 AE dev blog will document changes to v.2012

Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 AE dev blog will document changes to v.2012 Capcom-Unity translated the latest Street Fighter X Tekken blog development post, which had talked about the arcade location tests for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v.2012. A very interesting bit comes in the middle of the post, it reads:

We will also have surveys available at the location test. Yours truly will be there of course, so if you see me be sure to say hi!

So you all know that the purpose of this location test is to try out new balance adjustments. But it certainly would be helpful if you knew before going to the test what some of the changes are, or what to look out for.

...I understand. I do. So for that reason... the Dev Blog is coming back! For a special limited time only, 8/23 (Tue) to 8/26 (Fri), the Dev Blog will be posting up balance adjustments that have been made to the game, as well as certain points we’d like you the player to take a look at while playing! I’m sure you’re all already looking forward to it!

Instead of the community having to try and figure out all of the changes, the developers will be letting us in on some of the things they've changed. Keep on the lookout for these changes.

Destructoid scores Street Fighter 3 Online Edition, review roundup

Destructoid scores Street Fighter 3 Online Edition, review roundup Updated: Links to more reviews have been added into this story.

Destructoid did a very complete review of the finalized version of Third Strike Online Edition, giving it a 9 out of 10 score. The piece covers every aspect of this game and gives an effective list of pros and cons, but despite the cons the game still receives a fairly impressive score. The entire write-up is pretty big so here's a snip to get you started.

There are a lot of combos here that require really tricky timing, calling for you to pause for a half second in between hits, then rapidly string together two or three attacks, pause for a fifth of a second, follow up with another hit, and so on. In short, the game's combo system is almost polyrhythmic in nature, making it quite frustrating to those who just want to jump in and quickly put together a bunch of attacks in unblockable succession.

This Online Edition of the game allows the impatient among us to change all that. Thanks to the full Dip Switch mode (unlocked by beating the game with all characters, or via paid DLC for $0.99), you can now activate all new gameplay systems, including ground-chain combos and air-chain combos. This essentially makes the game playable in an entirely new way, which, in time, may even require a whole new set of tiering specific to this mode. It will be amazing if Twelve (the worst 3rd Strike character in the game for competitive play) actually becomes a tourney-ready character thanks to those wacky new dip-switch options.

These sites also have reviews up, the scores are listed after the link: "A" rating 9/10 rating
TheSixthAxis 9/10 rating
IncGamers 9/10 rating
VGRevolution 9/10 rating
GameRant 4 out of 5 stars
