Darkstalkers Resurrection - Demitri and Morrigan bio and move set videos from Capcom

Combofiend has posted two new videos over on Capcom-Unity detailing Darkstalkers Resurrection character bio's and move sets.

Today features Demitri and Morrigan. Hit the jump to see the other bio and video.

Demitri

Demitri Maximoff was once one of the most influential nobles in the demon realm of the Makai. However, being ever-thirsty for power, Demitri challenged the ruler of the demons Belial Aensland. Belial easily defeated him and, as a lesson to all would-be usurpers, exiled the wounded Demitri and his castle to the light of the human world.

For one hundred years, Demitri hid in his castle, regaining his strength. He preyed upon adventurers who wandered into his castle, feasting upon their blood and making them serve him. He continued waiting until his strength was recovered enough that he could walk in broad daylight with no ill effects. Having waited over a century, Demitri was ready to again make his claim to the throne of the Makai, and get revenge on the whole of House Aensland.

Darkstalkers Resurrection will feature ping filtering tool for online match making

Darkstalkers Resurrection will feature ping filtering tool for online match making Capcom detailed some of the match making options that will be available in Darkstalkers Resurrection, with one of the most notable items being a ping filtering tool, which can be adjusted between 0 to 300. Note that setting your ping to 100 latency would match you up with opponents with a 0.1 second delay, or less.

This option has been requested a number of times by the community, and it's nice to see it make its way into a Capcom fighting game.

There's a ranking point filtering system as well, similar to what was in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, which lets you look for all opponents who are close to your ranking point total. There's also the standard region setting, so it's easier to find people who are in your area, and therefore hook up with players who have faster ping times.

Over 60,000 people responded to Capcom's digital survey, Sven said results were 'very telling'

Over 60,000 people responded to Capcom's digital survey, Sven said results were 'very telling' Capcom received over 60,000 responses to their digital survey they ran back in late December 2012. Christian Svensson noted that the results were "very telling" and that it should give the company a prioritized list of things to tackle.

He noted that conveniently enough, fan feedback coincided with things they've been pushing for. Because digital titles take a year or more to make, and a couple of months to greenlight, Svensson added that fans shouldn't expect to hear news in the short term — but they already have some digital titles in the works which will be announced some time in 2013.

Josh: In your opinion what will Capcom Japan think of the digital survey results?

Svensson: I think the breadth of feedback we received was fantastic (more than 60K respondents) and I think Japan will think the same. So thanks everyone for taking the time.

The data collected was very telling and in my opinion easily gives a prioritized list of things I think we should do (conveniently enough, many of them are things we've been pushing for for a while). My next task is to convince the gatekeepers in Japan with the data (which they have in their possession) and ensure what we're working on fits with the complete digital strategy for the company.

Games of this sort take a couple months to greenlight and usually a year or more to make, so again, to set expectations, please don't expect any new news being driven from this survey in the short term. That said, we do have games already in development in this segment, some of which you'll hear about a bit later in the year.

Capcom vs. SNK 2 tournament footage from 2008 featuring Desk's E. Honda, Sakura, Blanka team

Earlier this morning we were sent some interesting tournament footage from 2008 featuring none other than combo extraordinaire, Desk. These clips are from the Battle of Destiny tournament and showcase Desk playing Capcom vs. SNK 2 using a team of E. Honda, Sakura and Blanka.

People often wonder if Desk has ever played competitively and although this footage is rather old, it's still awesome to check out.

High level Darkstalkers footage with Daigo, Sako, Nuki and Haitani

MCZ|Daigo Umehara, HORI|Sako, Haitani and Nuki are all featured in the videos below.

Darkstalkers 2 and 3 will be released as a compilation title with HD graphic filters, online play and many more features on March 14, 2013.

The first clip has Sako (B. B. Hood) facing off against Nuki (Bishamon). Hit the jump for the rest.

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game

Free Street Fighter X Mega Man patch expected early next month, Sven discusses the rarity of Capcom's involvement in a fan-made game The Capcom forums have been quite active recently with users fielding their questions about various subjects, specifically Street Fighter X Mega Man glitches and getting Capcom's cooperation on other fan-made games. First up, Brelston mentioned that we can expect to see a free V2 patch for SFxMM early next month that will address some of the issues brought up by a Capcom forum user below.

1. If you lock your computer or close your screen with game running the video doesn't want to come back. You have to close the game and restart. I think it's an issue with your computer needing to refresh the screen.

2. If you get killed at the same time as you kill the last boss in the boss rush you can't re-enter their tube. You are stuck in the level. I'm not sure if this is a problem with any boss during boss rush or if it's just the last boss you fight.

3. The top of ladders don't seem to want you to grab them. Some full jumps are awkward.

4. Esc key should have a yes or no menu to safely close the game. I've exited on accident a couple times.

5. (Not really a issue since I don't do it, but) Urien can be easily killed by pausing game with mine sweeper explosion over him.


Brelston: Thanks for the notes. We're working on a V2 that should address some of these issues. Goal is to get it out to everyone early January, free as usual :)

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters

If Capcom vs. SNK 3 happens it won't be soon - PC SFxT players may have 'interesting news' regarding price of DLC characters Capcom continues to say a Capcom vs. SNK 3 title won't happen any time soon, this is despite the PS2 version of the game being re-released here in the states in the near future, along with Capcom Fighting Evolution.

All news wasn't bad though, at least if you happen to own the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken, as Christian Svensson noted that they may have some "interesting news" for existing owners soon.

Adrian: Will Capcom vs. SNK 3 ever come out or SVC Chaos 2?

Svensson: Ever is such a very, very long time. I can say, if it happens, it won't be soon though.

Gohan16ken: Does Capcom Japan talk to Capcom USA? Even though I am excited to hear that Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Capcom Fighting Evolution will be re-release digitally as a PlayStation 2 classic, I am a little bewildered as to how it came about based on past comments.

Svensson: We communicate ALL the time, however the folks responsible for PS2 re-releases on PSN and Wii Virtual Console operate a bit separately from everything else. We don't have as clear communications as other areas of the business.

Ignss: Will the DLC characters for the PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken be free?

Svensson: Not free, but we'll have hopefully some interesting news for existing SFxT PC owners soon on that front.

Fighting game artwork gallery for Stan 'Artgerm' Lau

Stan "Artgerm" Lau is an artist Capcom has been calling on a lot lately. He redid the artwork for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition and Darkstalkers Resurrection. We wanted to highlight some of the pieces he's done over the years, along with his official Capcom works.

You can scope out a gallery of random items below, and see his official works for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition and Darkstalkers Resurrection after the jump.

BAS: I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken

BAS: I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken Chris Bahn was able to grab a quick interview from D44 aka BAS, a Capcom vs. SNK 2 legend, who is known for his A-Groove Bison, Vega and Blanka team. You might also recognize his name from the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 team tournament held at whose team placed first in 2011.

Many topics are covered from his win in CvS2 at Evo 2007, his favorite experiences with the game, whether he preferred the Alpha series or the CvS series and more.

Did you consider the Alpha series or Capcom vs. SNK series to be more enjoyable, and can elaborate your preference?

Well, I think those games are almost perfect, but CVS2 is definitely better suited for my tastes. I enjoyed Alpha 3, but the Custom Combo system is just too broken.

Infinite combos is cool, but I dislike how characters have “free charging” while they’re in this state. Also, I think it’s a bad idea that you initially start out with a full Super meter at the beginning of the match. Players tend to dismiss making effective strategies and instead just seem more concerned with executing custom combos (CC).

With Capcom vs. SNK 2, A-Groove is very strong, but you had to build meter on your own (unlike Alpha 3), so a player needed to develop an effective strategy to build up that meter safely (and wisely). CVS2 also is a “team battle game”, meaning that even if you lost your first match, you still had more opportunities to come back since it featured multiple characters per team. You can even switch up the order to avoid potentially bad matchups. I definitely feel that Capcom vs. SNK series provided more flexibility and options compared to other fighters.

Street Fighter X Mega Man speed run completed in 27:09 by Duckfist

Duckfist has uploaded an awesome speed run of Street Fighter X Mega Man. In this video the game is completed in 27:09, which is the current record as far as we know.

Note that quite a few mistakes are made during some of the boss fights. Considering the current record is already 27 minutes, it'll be interesting to see how much lower the speed run time can get with fewer errors.

Yoshinori Ono has interest in working with Street Fighter Alpha series again

Yoshinori Ono has interest in working with Street Fighter Alpha series again Capcom's Yoshinori Ono left a potentially interesting Tweet regarding the future of the Street Fighter Alpha series, noting that he'd like to do something with the long dormant franchise.

CSLFiero: Here's to hoping a console release of Alpha 3 Max with Darkstalkers Resurrection.

Yoshinori Ono: I have interest in making something for [Alpha] series. ;D

Things get a bit more compelling when you look at some past statements from Capcom, including an old interview with David Sirlin, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix's lead designer, where he talked about the origins of the project. Sirlin mentions that he pushed to redo SSF2T at the time, as it was the title he knew best, but Capcom really wanted to go with Street Fighter Alpha 3.

VideoGamer.com: So why did Capcom want to do Street Fighter Alpha 3?

Sirlin: They just really liked Alpha 3! It has all these different versions, and it's been ported to PSP, and Anniversary Collection, every time they add some new features to it and add some new characters to it. I don't know, I guess they think it sells well.
