Ono's English isn't stellar, so proceed with that in mind, but he stated:

Wednesday Night Fights Season 2 under way, now with two days of streaming

Wednesday Night Fights Season 2 under way, now with two days of streaming IGN posted a blog talking about Level|Up's Season 2 of streams, this being the first season where Level|Up has split the WNF series into two different nights with two different streams.

Here's a bit to get your started.

Last Wednesday marked the first time that the WNF series split into two nights. The first, on Wednesday, will feature Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition version 2012 and Street Fighter X Tekken. And the second night named “The Runback”, on Thursday, will feature King of Fighters XIII and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The main attraction for Wednesday would be the new game, Street Fighter X Tekken.

The variety of AE on stream saw a mix of established players with up and coming ones. From a couple strong San Diego players in “Mr Certified” and Chris King to established veterans like Mike “Mike Ross” Ross, Alex “Calipower” Valle and “Hungbee”, there would be no easy rounds in this tournament. The reputation for being one of the hardest 60+ man tournament in the country was maintained because of the constant emerging players; many of whom played on stream. There were players like “Masarap”, “Kane”, “Grandmaster J”, “Hugo101” and “OnlineTony” providing high-quality matches.

Check out the full blog post over on IGN.

Capcom's response to SFxT BBB complaints: No distinction between DLC and disc-locked content - sound patch possibly on April 10

Capcom's response to SFxT BBB complaints: No distinction between DLC and disc-locked content - sound patch possibly on April 10 Someone who purchased Street Fighter X Tekken filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau concerning Capcom's DLC practices with the game. Cinemablend posted the response Capcom sent the user, which reads:

At Capcom, we value our customers and make every effort to resolve customer complaints. We are sorry to hear that [censored] was so disappointed with the Street Fighter X Tekken game (''SFxT''), and would like to respond to his complaints.

SFxT has an enormous amount of content, fully developed and available for play and enjoyment immediately on-disc. Given the 38 characters available for full play, as well as multiple play modes, SFxT provides great value for all players from day one. While Capcom is sorry that some of its fans are not happy about the chosen method of delivery for the DLC, we believe that this method will provide more flexible and efficient gameplay throughout the game's lifecycle. There is effectively no distinction between the DLC being ''locked'' behind the disc and available for unlocking at a later date, or being available through a full download at a later date, other than delivery mechanism.

We hope that this addresses [censored]' concerns

CriticalBlow also wrote into the BBB concerning SFxT, and during their correspondence Capcom mentioned that the patch to fix the online sound issues should be out around April 10.
