Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic The Fighters possibly coming to Xbox Live Arcade It is being reported by both GameSpark and Edge Online that Sega could be bringing Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers and Sonic The Fighters to the Xbox Live Arcade as they have recieved ratings from Germany's entertainment software self-regulation body USK.

While no concrete details are provided, Sega has been bringing a ton of old games onto new platforms including Sonic Adventure 2, Jet Set Radio, Nights Into Dreams and many more.

There is no word on if these will be coming to the PlayStation Network, but if any of the other games Sega has done in the past, it is likely they will be.

IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Tina guide, Perfect Legend's Hayate early impressions

IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Tina guide, Perfect Legend's Hayate early impressions IGN has written out a very detailed guide for Tina in Dead or Alive 5 and posted it on their site. This guide is broken down into a wide array of sections including general strategy, combos, great analysis of normals, specials and much more.

If you're looking to learn Tina in the latest Dead or Alive installment, this excellent guide will definitely kick start that process. Here is an excerpt from the article.

Playing Tina is all about baiting out counter hold attempts and then shaving off huge chunks of life with hi counter throws. She even has attack strings expressly designed for the purpose. And there is no opponent you will love to face more than the one who tries to escape hold out of every critical stun. Tina has throws that actually turn into different moves on hi counter, netting her an even bigger chunk of damage than a hi counter normally would. Watch your opponent closely to see what their counter hold tendencies are and then blow them up with your best command throw.

If your opponent is smart enough not to throw out errant counter holds, then Tina has to work a bit harder, but she's still got the tools for the job. She has some deceptively quick mids, a great block and throw game, and more attack string mix-ups than you'd expect out of a grappler. Combined with her strong okizeme and spacing abilities, a smart player can definitely win it by inches, but you should always be looking for that hi counter throw home run. Consistently landing those huge punishes on counter holds will condition your opponent to stop holding very quickly, which allows Tina to strike much more freely.

Dead or Alive 5 Mila combo video and high-level casuals from Emper0rc0w

EMPRER0RC0W has sent in some new Dead or Alive 5 footage today. The first video is a combo video that he made for Mila, and you can read his description of the video below.

After the jump you can see EMPRER0RC0W face off against the top players in Europe who plays a deadly Leifang. The casuals also switch over to an Ayane vs. Kokoro match in the next video. If you're an enthusiast of the game, don't miss out on the footage!

With good crushes, long range moves, offensive holds, throw strings and great juggle potential, Mila can be very deadly. In this video I tried to demonstrate her different sitdown stuns as well as showed various examples for comboing from and into her "feint" stance. In this video you will also see some of her untechable knockdowns which guarantee the follow up ground throw for major damage (including one variant which can be done from an air juggle).

Dead or Alive 5 director: We definitely want to make more Dead or Alive titles in the future, fan feedback can speed up the process

Dead or Alive 5 director: We definitely want to make more Dead or Alive titles in the future, fan feedback can speed up the process Games Beat recently sat down with Dead or Alive 5 director, Yohei Shimbori, for an interview. Shimbori touches on several topics including how Team Ninja goes about balancing their games, tips for players new to the Dead or Alive franchise and more.

The Dead or Alive 5 director goes on to state that they hope to make another Dead or Alive title in a shorter time span than it took between Dead or Alive 4 and 5. He mentions that if there is a ton of fan demand it may help speed up the process.

Going forward, is Team Ninja hoping to put out future sequels of Dead or Alive on a more regular schedule and avoid another multi-year stretch?

Yeah, we definitely want to make more in the future. But I’m sure there are other things that we need to make before the next one comes out. I don’t think it’s going to be an immediate release of anything right now. But again, if there’s a ton of feedback from fans that want something else, then I’m sure we can step up the process a little more.

Umemonaka is back again with another comparison video showing the inspirations for the moves in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle, straight from the comic itself.Embedding from Nico is not possible without special privileges, so you can use the MMCafe Redirector or watch our rehost below.

The amount of effort the 3D animators have shown ensuring that the fighters are in-character with their moves is very impressive. The video focuses mostly on Wham and Joseph Joestar, with some small showings of Guido and Giorno.

For those new to Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Wham is one of the main villains of Part 2 of the series; a millenium-old superhuman in search of the Red Stone that will overcome his fatal weakness to sunlight and make him invincible. Joseph Joestar is the protagonist of Part 2 who aims to stop the Pillar Men from obtaining the stone. Giorno and Guido are from Part 5 of the series.

Blog shows PS3 version of Dead or Alive 5 has an additional frame of input latency

A Japanese blog did several comparisons of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dead or Alive 5. They do a standard visual analysis, which shows the versions are nearly identical, but things get a bit more interesting when they compare the input delay between the two systems, with the PS3 port being about 1 frame slower when it comes to registering inputs.

Dead or Alive 4 also appears to have less input delay, showing that it's about 1 or 2 frames faster than it's sequel when it comes to inputs.
