IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Gen Fu guide

IGN's Dead or Alive 5 in-depth Gen Fu guide IGN returns with another extremely detailed Dead or Alive 5 guide this time for Gen Fu. This guide is divided into many different sections and includes video examples for further reference.

Much like the previous guides for Sarah Bryant and Tina, this one is written is extremely detailed and is a great read if you're looking to learn Gen Fu.

Here is a bit to get you started.

On the surface, Gen Fu can seem like a limited character to the uninitiated. He relies heavily on mid punches, making him potentially predictable, and while many of his moves have decent speed, many others are unsafe or just not that fast. Many people pick him up out of curiosity, only to drop him shortly after for a character with more flash and a more varied looking striking game.

That's their loss. Gen Fu is thoroughly excellent in ways that are less obvious, but more devastating than your average character. While his best attack strings consist almost entirely of mid punches, he can alter their timing more dramatically than any other character can. Combined with the many moves of his that crush high attacks, he can score counter hits easily, which lead to some of the longest stuns in the game.

In-depth Guilty Gear XX Accent Core beginners tutorial, system mechanics, OTG burst, super-free unblockables and more

With the release of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus coming this week, we here at EventHubs thought it would be a good idea to post an extremely well done tutorial for anyone who is new to the system.

The guys at HitConfirm have put together this great video guide that goes over everything you will need to know from the basics to advance tactics like OTG burst, super-freeze unblockables and more

Note that this is guide is for Guilty Gear Accent Core and not Accent Core Plus, but there are very minimal system changes.

The only system changes we know about are HP increase (from 420 to 460), Faultless Defense's Knockback increased and Burst untechable time changed. There was some talk about Slashback's penalty on whiff during the loketests, but we're not sure if it carried over to the final version

Street Fighter and X-Men themed rap verses, EmperorCow's DoA5 Jann Lee combos, BBCS EX Tager Magnetism combos and more

A YouTube user by the name of Accentlyrics uploaded some footage of himself performing a couple of Street Fighter and X-Men themed rap verses. He tosses in some very clever references and overall does a nice job. Even if you are not particularly a fan of hip hop, it's still worth a listen to try and scope as many references as you can.

New Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus XBLA/PSN release trailer

  • The implementation of online for the title
  • The addition of Kliff and Justice as playable characters
  • The large amount of game modes
Guilty Gear is a series with a lot of history in fighting game communities all over the world, and this release may just be the beginning of a modern revival of the Guilty Gear fighting scene. Unfortunately, this release does not include the +R update that was released in the arcades which featured large rebalancing and refreshing changes. It is assumed that these changes will occur through a downloadable patch later.

Stone Ocean's Jolyne Kujo and Hermes Costello confirmed for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

The Salt Mine posted an article recently with a bit of information concerning Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. According to a picture recently released in an issue of Japanese manga series Shonen Jump, Stone Ocean's Jolyne Kujo and Hermes Costello have been confirmed as playable characters in the upcoming Jojo title.

Jolyne's stand, Stone Free, is capable of breaking Jolyne and itself into strands of string. This power has high utility value in the manga. Hermes stand is called Kiss and has the ability to duplicate objects using a stamp, and by removing the stamp she can force the duplicated objects to "reassemble" and damage themselves.

The Shonen Jump scan also reveals a new stage based on the prison that held the aforementioned characters in the story line. The stage is called Green Street Dolphin and will have a particular hazard of a storm raining down poisonous frogs that players will need to look out for when fighting upon it.

Major League Gaming announced that they would be having a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale tournament at their upcoming MLG Fall Championships in Dallas, Texas on November 2nd-4th.

Most importantly though, this will be a free to enter tournament that will featured a $5,000 prize pool. The format of the tournament has not been made clear as of yet, just earlier this week Seth Killian said he thought 2v2 was the best when playing serious as a 4 person free for all was a bit too random.

As another small reminder, the open beta for non PlayStation Plus members starts this upcoming October 23.

What are you thoughts on how this event should be ran? 1v1, 2v2, 4 person free for all? Let us know in the comment section below.

Dead or Alive 5 mousepads are... curvy

Coming soon to Japan are some rather... curvy Dead or Alive 5 themed mousepads, featuring Ayane, Kasumi and Hitomi. A few years back, it was a bit of a thing for Japanese companies to release mousepads with "enhancements" for PC users to rest their hands on.

These boobies products will set you back a bit though, as they cost 4,200 yen or about $53 USD each.
