Svensson takes on Street Fighter 3 Online Edition fan questions

Svensson takes on Street Fighter 3 Online Edition fan questions Capcom's Christian Svensson answered a TON of questions on the Unity Boards concerning the upcoming release of Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

The posts are spread across many different subjects, ranging from the YouTube upload feature, to GGPO spectator lag. Lots of good stuff in here, hit the jump to see everything.

When will we hear more about the YouTube upload feature?

Svensson: The answer to that question gives away a bit more about how the YouTube functionality works than I'm willing to say right now.

I'm going to have to beg for patience. We'll give a full rundown closer to Comic-Con or EVO.

And to be clear, our YouTube functionality isn't something facilitated by the Xbox libraries. This is our own implementation. As such, Microsoft's recent YouTube announcement has no bearing on our timing.

Are the stages and the music from the first two games going to make it as free DLC? — Crazy-Legs

Svensson: Not discussing DLC until after launch.

The version of SFIII OE that was shown at E3, was that the final version, or is there still more work to be done?

Svensson: It's a release candidate. Can't say final until it's approved by Sony/MS in each territory. It's in submission now.

Interviews with DMG's PR Balrog, Perfect Legend and AtroCity

Interviews with DMG's PR Balrog, Perfect Legend and AtroCity Dominion Method Gaming posted interviews with three of their team members recently. PR Balrog, the newest addition Perfect Legend and AtroCity all got in some time with Jason24cf to talk about how things are going. Topics range from who PR Balrog is picking up as a secondary character in AE, to Perfect Legend's experiences playing against Tokido. Here's a snip from one of the articles.

Jason24cf: You have been on a tear recently, you won Final Round, and you placed 2nd at Power Up and you just finished 3rd at UGFT #7 in SSFIV. With AE dropping in a few days do you think your play will change with Balrog changes and if so how would you mix it up?

PR Balrog: I’m going to keep using Balrog at the start mostly because I still think he’s strong but not as good as he was before. I’m already decided on who am I gonna play as my secondary if I have to. Its going to be Yang and its just because I like his st. jab (brings back memories) but I’m gonna have to see how can I adjust myself to dive kicks, but all in all I think I’ll be fine since his play style is patient rush down not going all out.

Jason24cf: Also SF is not your only specialty you also place 5th in MvC3 consistently as well as just finishing 2nd in MK9 at UGFT#7. How much time do you put into each game to practice?

PR Balrog: Honestly I don’t play ssf4 anymore that’s of course until AE comes out and that’s because here in Puerto Rico no one plays super anymore they all play MvC3. And with MK9 only a handful of people play it, so almost all of my time goes into training mode in those 2 games and just use basic strategies against people and I guess its working for now haha.

Guaranteed Spider-Man kill on Dark Phoenix in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Tab and Niddhogg posted videos on how to perform an inescapable kill on Phoenix/Dark Phoenix in MvC3 after landing Spider-Man's Maximum Spider hyper. It requires X-Factor and having enough meter to get his Ultimate Web Throw out there as well afterwards.

Niddhogg explained that Dark Phoenix's transformation is invincible all the way through. After Maximum Spider, she transforms right above the ground. Spider-Man's Ultimate Web Throw has 3 frames of startup after the super flash, and if timed right the startup before the flash is done while she's transforming. Therefore, Phoenix has 3 frames before the Ultimate Web Throw grabs her. Her teleport has 10 frames of startup so she cannot teleport to escape.

If not timed correctly, Phoenix can teleport out of this setup. Here are a few videos showing the setup in action.

Capcom game hype compilation #11 from MrPavy

MrPavy is already back with a new Capcom game hype compilation. This is video #11 in his series.

Wes Phillips talks Street Fighter X Tekken with the PlayStation Blog

The PlayStation Blog caught up with Capcom's Wes Phillips at E3 2011 to chat about Street Fighter X Tekken. There's A LOT of previously covered ground here, but mixed in with rehashed details these bits were covered:

• Wes said there's a lot of interoperability between the Vita and PS3 versions, adding that it's similar to what Sony is doing with Wipeout. That game features cross platform play, and it's likely that's what he was referring to, given the amount of hints that Yoshinori Ono has dropped on this subject as well.

• He mentioned he doesn't see a difference right now between the PS3 and Vita versions, from a graphics perspective.

• Most of the team working on SFxT is the team that worked on SF4.

• Characters can do a tech roll by holding back or forward, like MvC3, after a knock down.

• Wes stated that the game will be out before December 21, 2012. If Capcom's financial report holds up though, the title is supposed to be out before April 2012.

If you prefer to watch everything yourself, here's an embed from the PlayStation Blog.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE OMGWTFLOLBBQ moments vol. 3

Volume #3 of OMGWTFLOLBBQ moments in Super Street Fighter 4 AE was posted to YouTube by DontTaseM3Bro. He left this message about the video.

This was the best i could do Video Quality wise since no one wanted to help me *sad face*, but i made sure it was worth it and packed with stuff you don't see normally, plus some sick Final Fantasy VII and Mega Man 10 Remix.

Leave me feedback and if you ever have any replays you want to show for the Xbox 360, make sure you message me on my Xbox Live Gamertag at "D0ntTaseM3Br0" as well as leaving me a post on here on my YouTube.

Thanks guys for all the love and support, and don't forget to check out my past videos here.

More guest characters likely for Street Fighter X Tekken

More guest characters likely for Street Fighter X Tekken Weird coffee analogies apparently tell the story of why Cole is an exclusive character in the PS3/Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken. Yoshinori Ono said Sony does a much better job than Microsoft at grinding coffee beans and that landed them an exclusive fighter.

Ono goes on to add that an Xbox 360 exclusive character is entirely up to Microsoft and that more guest characters are likely coming on EuroGamer.

"I'll put it to you this way, I have a habit of doing all sorts of fan service-ey kind of things in my games. So if there was only one guest, that would suck. That's all I'll tell you for now."

And he hinted again about cross platform play being an option with the Vita and PS3 versions, talking about linking up the two versions of the game.

Assuming Microsoft gets involved with Capcom on an exclusive fighter for the Xbox 360, who would you like to see added? Leave a comment below with your opinion.
