Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012: Daigo's Ryu strength, Kazunoko's Seth dominance

Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012: Daigo's Ryu strength, Kazunoko's Seth dominance Lynaken and the Baka Oro blog have been posting lots of interesting match statistics from a single Japanese Shinjuku arcade recently and it opens up newer revelations about the scene in Japan.

Daigo has stood mostly undefeated in all of the sets that he fought in. With this level of commitment it seems all but confirmed that Daigo's new tournament character is Ryu. Notable match notes include Daigo's complete beatdown of the #1 BP ranked Juri Younashi and his back and forth sets versus Kazunoko's Seth.

Mago has been having a rough time beating Kazunoko and his Seth with the return to Sagat as his main character. Fuudo also can't get anything going against Kazunoko's Seth either. Fei Long and Sagat were considered two very strong characters in AE, but it appears that Seth eclipses both of these characters now.

  • Daigo Ryu || Kazunoko Seth: 6-11

Street Fighter X Tekken: Dev blog information roundup part 2 recaps the gem system

Gregaman from Capcom-Unity posted part 2 of the translated developer blog that came out several days ago. He also includes a much higher quality version of the Speed Boost Gems in action when all three are active and equipped to Zangief. Read a piece of the blog below.

The Gem System, which as everyone knows, is a system that boosts a character's parameters and is a strategic and ground-breaking system for the fighting game genre.

Gems help form the foundation of the battle system in SFxTK and are broken up into two main categories. The first category is the Boost Gem. Whether you're using Ryu or Kazuya, the character you're controlling gets a boost with these Gems. The other category is the Assist Gem. This doesn't help out the character, but rather the player controlling the character.

Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012: Daigo sticks with Ryu, Fuudo hits matchup trouble

Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012: Daigo sticks with Ryu, Fuudo hits matchup trouble UPDATED: Lynaken added about 10 more match stats into the story.

The Baka Oro blog and Cross Counter's Zhi have been putting together more match statistics from the Japanese arcades courtesy of Japanese forums such as 2channel.

Daigo is no longer entertaining Akuma or Cammy as choice options according to these results and has been sticking solely with Ryu. Interesting stats include how he keeps an advantage over Kazunoko's Seth and how Mago is keeping it even between them. It also appears that Fuudo is having trouble with matchups that Fei won previously such as Rufus and Abel.

Iyo has reversed his fortunes in the Seth matchup and now is winning more against Kazunoko. A Juri player named Younashi previously gave Daigo a run for his money only to beaten down 12-5 in the next GACHI.
  • Daigo Ryu || Jyobin Ryu: 3-7
  • Daigo Ryu || Kazunoko Seth: 4-3
  • Daigo Ryu || Kazunoko Seth: 4-2 (Match 2)
  • Daigo Ryu || Kazunoko Seth: 7-6 (Match 3)
  • Daigo Ryu || Mago Sagat: 3-3
  • Daigo Ryu || Machabo Fei Long: 4-0
  • Daigo Ryu || Namedaruma Cody: 1-2
  • Daigo Ryu || Yoshiwo Guile: 4-4
  • Daigo Ryu || Hanamaruki Sagat: 4-4
  • Daigo Ryu || Younashi Juri: 12-5
  • Daigo Ryu || Reiketsu Vega: 4-1
  • Daigo Ryu || Reiketsu Vega: 8-2 (Match 2)
  • Mago Sagat || Nekojita Abel: 6-4
  • Mago Sagat || Nemo Yang: 24-9
  • Mago Sagat || Hanamaruki Sagat: 3-0
  • Kazunoko Seth || Iyo Ibuki: 3-6
  • Kazunoko Seth || Nekojita Abel: 7-2
  • Kazunoko Seth || Reiketsu Vega: 2-0
  • Kazunoko Seth || Fuudo Fei Long: 9-7
  • Inco Rufus || Fuudo Fei Long: 11-5
  • Reiketsu Vega || Fuudo Fei Long: 3-2
  • Reiketsu Vega || Nemo Yang: 11-8
  • Nekojita Abel || Fuudo Fei Long: 7-4

Top players discuss eSports and fighting games

Top players discuss eSports and fighting games The eSports debate has been a hot topic in the community lately. There has been a lot of comments on both sides of the fence, talking about if the fighting game community should try and get more of their mainstream games involved with leagues like MLG, IPL, etc.

Some of the arguments in favor of this move have stated there would be more money and additional opportunities for gamers to earn a living playing fighting games, while others are worried that these leagues won't be able to handle our community properly, and we'd lose a part of who we are.

To try and get a better sense of what's being said I've grabbed some comments from Twitter, and linked up a few shows where the issue was broached. I've mainly focused on gathering top player's opinions in this piece, as you'll find comments from EG|Justin Wong, PR Balrog, MRN|WolfKrone, MRN|Marn, LU|Alex Valle and some others.
