• Seth mentions that people haven't had a chance to go hands on with the gem system, but he understands there's not that much information out there. He hopes people check it out before they jump the gun.

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog recaps gem system information

Street Fighter X Tekken dev blog recaps gem system information Ayano-san went on Capcom-Unity and posted a blog about everything from New York Comic-Con. He recaps the gem system in Street Fighter X Tekken which is currently getting a lot of attention from the online community.

Here's a sample, check out the full blog here.

Information about the Gem system has just been officially released, but it’s already creating a lot of talk online about the potential pros and cons of it! We took a lot of time to think about how we could expand the general fan base of fighting games and what approach would be best, and we finally came up with this solution.

Nonetheless, I suppose that everyone who reads my blog and has that passion for fighting games would like a better explanation of the Gem system, and I would love to as well, but remember that the game is still under development, and there’s always a chance that what I explain may not make it into the final game, so please be aware of that point.

Also, some websites have stated that you can filter matches to have fights with and without Gems. However, this is incorrect. We would like to state that when searching for matches, there is no such feature to turn on or off Gems. The Gems is a fundamental part of Street Fighter X Tekken and a highly important piece of the system. Be on the lookout for official information regarding the effects, conditions and costs of the Gems revealed thus far.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Chun-Li has an undiscovered off the ground attack

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Chun-Li has an undiscovered off the ground attack Seth Killian just made a post on his Twitter account saying that Chun-Li has an off the ground move in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that nobody has found yet.

Yes, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Chun has an off the ground that nobody has found, and EX Spinning Bird Kick is pretty good. She's tough to play but gets a bunch of solid buffs.

Do you guys think this is enough of a change to Chun-Li that we'll see more players using her?

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 $10 discount deal on Newegg.com

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 $10 discount deal on Newegg.com A couple of users wrote in to say that tech product site Newegg is having a 72-hour sale on a lot of products and surprisingly enough, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 preorders are on their promotional list.

You can save 10$ and get free three-day shipping if you order it from their site, but this naturally means you won't be able to get a copy on the launch date. Still, if you want to shave the price off your copy of UMvC3 then this site is the only one so far to offer any sort of sale.

The promotional codes for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are listed below.
EMCJKHK97 - Xbox 360 copy
EMCJKHK98 - PS3 copy

Let us know if you think that saving money is preferable to picking it up the first day it is available.
