Crowdfunding campaign in the works to renovate Super Arcade, Mike Watson discusses future plans, thanks supporters

Mike Watson's previous blog post about Super Arcade was a bit depressing, but after reading about his current situation, a number of people came out to support him and his arcade, including doing some heartwarming things that Watson made special mention of in his recent blog post.

Watson also noted that he's fleshing out a new business plan which will be a "great improvement for Super Arcade and will revitalize this location along with the FGC as a whole."

While he doesn't reveal all of his plans, Watson discusses how he'd transform some aspects of Super Arcade into more of a hang out spot for college students nearby, and altering their game lineup a bit to appeal to a broader audience.

Capcom: We intend to reaffirm our presence in the fighting genre in 2014

4Gamer held a massive set of end of the year interviews, and one happened to be with Capcom's Kazunori Sugiura.

Sugiura is the Director of the Second Development Department, and he noted that while many titles were announced in 2013, there were more that didn't make it this year, and will be announced in 2014.

He said that these titles will "surprise the readers a lot." Note that this comment wasn't necessarily about fighting games, although they could be included in this statement. Sugiura got a bit more specific though, with his next remark. Hit the jump to read on.

Street Fighter announcement incoming for PlayStation 4? Watch this bizarre Hadouken Cabs teaser

Sony has put up a ridiculous and kind of awesome teaser for Hadouken Cabs. What this means exactly is up for debate. An email sent to VG247 this morning stated:

Don’t just call a cab! Call Hadouken Cabs! Hadouken Cabs. Knocking the competition out since 1987.

They also use the PS4 Twitter hashtag #4theplayers. Some of the Easter eggs shown in the video include a "PS1994" license plate on the taxi cab, a URL on the sign which points to this website, and the clip briefly shows the PS4 controller.

This teaser likely means that Sony has worked out some kind of deal for Street Fighter on the PlayStation 4, but that's only speculation at this point, as nothing has been officially confirmed, yet.
