• A page that opposes the new "Ten Strikes" streaming bill is now online. This bill would make streaming of copyrighted content, including games, a felony.

Street Fighter: Ryu's theme history by TheDarkAce

TheDarkAce posted a collection of Ryu's theme songs spanning several games and systems. This is over an hour and a half long and contains the songs from the Street Fighter 2 series, including the SNES and Genesis versions. It also makes its way into the latter games, like Alpha, SF3, SF4 and finishes up with the Vs. games. This is a good way to hear how Ryu's theme evolved over the years.

Make sure you check out the video's description as there are quick jumps to most of the songs on there, letting you skip around and find any particular themes you want to hear.

Sven discusses PC leak of Super Street Fighter 4 AE, world wide release dates

Sven discusses PC leak of Super Street Fighter 4 AE, world wide release dates Capcom's Christian Svensson took on a ton of PC-related questions about Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition's release on the Unity Boards. This starts off with a quick Street Fighter X Tekken bit before moving into heavy PC territory.

Unless you're interested in the PC version of the game, there's not a lot here to sink your teeth into, but if you want to know all of the little details — scope this out.

Based on feedback from people who played the current builds of Street Fighter X Tekken, is it possible to do balance changes with the characters? Also, could there two different versions of the balance changes for people who prefer more broken gameplay and people who don't? — Shinkuu Kikoken

Svensson: Balance changes will definitely happen. A real balance pass has yet to even begin. When it does happen, there will be only one final version (not two as suggested).

Sven would you mind explaining to me how in the world did you manage to have the game already leaked in the internet before it's official release? — Chris

Svensson: Retail... distribution... as soon as it leaves replication on its way to a retailer, leaks are inevitable.

This is one reason I'll be happy when PC retail is dead and buried.

Will I be able to activate my American PC version of SSF4AE (retail) in Europe (Germany) on the 5th of July or do I have to wait until the 8th of July? — Raine

Svensson: If you have the game physically, regardless of where it's from or where you are, you should be able to activate it.

PC Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition move swaps and freaky faces

Move swaps for the PC release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition have already hit YouTube. For those of you not familiar with this back from the vanilla PC days, this is where you take a character model, say Yun and swap in T. Hawk's moves.

Some people will get a kick out of this, while others won't get it. If you check these out, pay special note to the Cammy's model with Oni's moves. If her face doesn't give you nightmares, I don't know what will. You can also see Yun as a duck in the last video.

Ask Capcom July 1 transcript: Hitboxes, Smash Bros. and Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Capcom employees Snow and Sven held another Ask Capcom session yesterday and an archive is up on YouTube. There wasn't a lot of discussion about their fighting games, but it did come up a bit. You can find a transcript of the notable details below.

• On the matter of showing hitboxes in fighting games, Sven said there are some people internally that are in favor of making this happen, and some people who aren't, adding that latter group feels this gives away too much, although this information often shows up on the web later on down the road.

• Sven said he's "totally down" with doing something with Smash Bros series.

• Christian reiterated what he said before about MvC3, that they still care a lot about the game, but continued to ask for patience.

• The SSF4 AE PC version DLC contains all of the costumes for each of the 5 characters in every pack. So there's 15 costumes per pack. You can check out this post for more of an explanation.
