EventHub's readers chose which 6 main games they'd like to see played at SoCal Regionals 2014 - Killer Instinct and Melee make the cut

Last week, we here at EventHubs created a poll to get an idea of which 6 games our readers would most like to see as the main titles played at SoCal Regionals 2014. This was an unofficial poll generated to give the Level|Up team a better idea of what the community would like to see played next year.

The votes have been tallied, and the results are in. Interestingly enough, both Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Killer Instinct made it into the top 6, beating out games like Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Street Fighter X Tekken. Melee is a game that isn't really played at most major events, (sans Smash specific tournaments), and Killer Instinct is still yet to be released.

Harada: If Tekken and Dead or Alive collaborate, nobody would know what's going on anymore - says too many franchises currently crossing over

Famitsu recently sat down for an interview with, Tekken producer, Katsuhiro Harada, and Dead or Alive producer, Yosuke Hayashi, to speak about the free-to-play business model that has become more common in fighting games as of late. With Namco Bandai having released Tekken Revolution, currently working on Soul Calibur: Lost Swords, and Tecmo Koei with Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters, these two producers are very familiar with the concept of F2P.

Among the in-depth discussion, Famitsu asked the Namco / Tecmo representatives about the possibility of a cross over between Tekken and Dead or Alive. Harada-san steps up with a response, and says that with Street Fighter X Tekken, and Virtua Fighter characters in DoA, that the fighting game universe will become jumbled.

Take to the skies! Glitch causes Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate characters to fly upwards endlessly until round ends

A rather unfortunate glitch has made its way into Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate's 1.03 patch, causing endless flight until the round ends.

The 1.03 patch came out for PlayStation 3 gamers today, and will be online for Xbox 360 users soon.

BlueSwimTV uploaded the clip which shows Kokoro and Ayane fighting it out on the new Haunted Lorelei Halloween stage, when the latter character is knocked over the railing and begins to fall... upwards, I guess.

Once the timer for the round ends, the action is reset and everything is good to go, but it's still something that will likely be fixed by Team Ninja in the future. Hit the jump to check it out.

Fans react negatively to micro-transactions in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, may drop system in international version

Fans react negatively to micro-transactions in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, may drop system in international version The Japanese PlayStation 3 exclusive Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, developed by CyberConnect2 and Namco Bandai, retains a campaign mode that revolves around a system of micro-transactions, similar to many free-to-play mobile games. Players are provided with a "battery" that has 10 stocks in it, and each fight in the campaign depletes one of these stocks.

The stocks will regenerate on their own, however, each takes a total of 5 minutes per bar to do so. To bypass this, players can purchase items with real money, that will replenish the battery without a wait time.

Unfortunately for CyberConnect2, players did not take a liking to this micro-transaction foundation, and many feel like this system should not exist in the first place. Namco Bandai's Noriaki Niino stated that this system was initially implemented so that “people could enjoy the game longer,” but fans have misinterpreted their intentions.

As a result of the player outrage, the developers are reworking the micro-transaction system in the Japanese version of the game, and the changes will also be included in the international release. Although neither team confirmed that the micro-transactions will be dropped when the game reaches the states, Niino did say that the international version will have “lots of adjustments and improvements."

As a way to make amends, the developers are looking at the possibility of giving out a paid item for free.
