Tier rankings: Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition by Kindevu One of Japan's top players, Kindevu, posted some tier rankings for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition recently. Lynaken here on the forums translated the list for people to check out.

Community news roundup for April 30, 2011

• CoolBoyCorporate has created a tutorial video showing off the 100% combos that Deadpool can execute while under the effects of Level 3 X-Factor. He also shows how you can start these infinites from anywhere on the screen.

• SmexyMillz has uploaded an MvC3 video featuring Zero. In it, he shows how to take advantage of the "flying screen" to make your mixups impossible to see coming. This is especially potent with Zero and his ability to easily cross up the opponent. SmexyMillz also has similar interesting content on his channel.

• Sumo has written the next entry in his "Why Fighting Game Stories Lack Substance" series. In this part of his blog he talks about how the players relate to the story.

• WinnerStaysOn (a weekly event held in London) has put up some new videos for the MvC3 side of the competition. The Grand Finals feature a player called HowtoRead who plays a team of Viewtiful Joe/Tron/Amaterasu. You can find out more about this event on their Facebook page.

Svensson explains Capcom USA's involvement in past projects

Svensson explains Capcom USA's involvement in past projects If you've ever wondered what projects Capcom USA has been involved in, company V.P., Christian Svensson offered a short list recently on the Unity Boards. He also talks at length about the PC aspect of Capcom and how it's growing.

What are some examples of Capcom USA's influence in decision making within the company? — Product

Svensson: I'm going to bed but I'll start with a few quick ones:

The fact that MvC2 was re-released and that MvC3 exists at all is in very large part due to this office.

Most XBLA/PSN strategy has historically been driven from our office (Capcom Japan has since caught on).

Nearly all PC initiatives are driven by our office.

GGPO (or technologies like it) in anything are driven by our office.

The fact that the Capcom community has a voice in anything we do these days is directly because of our office.

On a related note, the fact that Capcom-Unity as a force across all of our territories, is because of our office... and it's going to become an increasingly powerful force in the future.

There's many, many other examples but I'd add that Europe has a lot to do with adding the necessary leverage to drive a lot of initiatives forward if we don't have enough ourselves. Lastly, while we may push, moan, complain, prod and sell these concepts, Japan ultimately has to approve these things to happen so it is a team effort in the end.

Comboing gunslinger style with Dante in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Cauldrath had this to say about the video.

I noticed that a lot of people aren't using many of Dante's projectile tools, so this video shows some of the moves people often forget about, plus what you can combo off of them.

Note that the back+H Weasel Shot and Reverb Shock xx Fireworks are both tight cancels, so watch the input display. I made sure to press only the buttons required to do each combo, so note the timing on those cancels especially.
