EventHubs sponsors Dominion Method Gaming (DMG)

EventHubs sponsors Dominion Method Gaming (DMG) I am pleased to announce that EventHubs is now a sponsor of Dominion Method Gaming (DMG). This is a terrific organization, with a lot of top players in our community, and I am proud to be supporting their efforts.

DMG CEO, Jose “Hyena” Rodriguez, had this to say about the new sponsorship.

Nothing pleases more than progress. Progress on something that is not easy to build upon and DMG could have been just another group of gamers. However DMG is not your average group of gamers; we are competitors and champions. DMG is on the forefront of trying to get the FGC community onto the mainstream and this is a huge step of getting the awareness to everyone.

It’s more than an honor to be sponsored by EventHubs but more of a privilege to be given the opportunity to showcase what we can do. We want to thank EventHubs for believing in us and this is something DMG will never forget.

We also want to thank those who supported us and believed in us from day one.

Quick tip: Automatic training mode cornering in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Nothing mind blowing here, but it can save you a little bit of time in Marvel vs. Capcom 3's training mode. If you hold either left or right on the on the stick and press Select (Back) + Start at the same time, you'll automatically restart with your opponent cornered. If you add in an assist button press, you'll swap out with the applicable fighter.

This is all stuff you can do easily enough on your own, but it is a time saving short cut, which apparently isn't listed in the manual.

Here's a somewhat annoying repetitive video showing this in action from PlayToWin.

Killian talks balancing Marvel vs. Capcom 3's flight moves, Street Fighter X Tekken news

Killian talks balancing Marvel vs. Capcom 3's flight moves, Street Fighter X Tekken news Seth Killian shared a bit of insight to why the 'flight' moves in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 work the way they do recently on the Unity Boards. He also briefly mentioned when we'll hear more about Street Fighter X Tekken, and a few other people jumped in on other topics.

Why is the "flight" for everybody who can fly in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 so short in duration?

Seth Killian: There are lots of possibilities with flight (like calling assists out of a flight started from a normal jump, etc.) that could be very powerful with certain character combinations in an extended flight.

As it is already, flight adds additional mobility, gives you new ways to use more special moves in the air, and in some cases gives you all kinds of crazy possibilities by fly-canceling grounded normals.

Extended flight time would also make it easier for some characters to just run and hide from certain others. Zoning is already strong with improvements to a lot of projectiles, and while this kind of *keepaway* style is a primary tactic for a number of characters, we weren't as interested in empowering an easy way to just *run away* for extended periods of time with long flight times.

Why isn't Hulk's Gamma Wave command a quarter-circle motion? — The Voice

Seth Killian: As to Hulk's Gamma Wave command, we weren't settled on the charge motion from the start (and as some may have seen we experimented and had it with different controls in different builds we let people play), but the charge motion was ultimately settled on to minimize command overlap with his other specials. Of course it affects gameplay a bit, but given the way Hulk moves (and how he uses it within combos) it was felt the move was still very viable and that it was the best overall solution.

Official Facebook page hints at Phoenix Wright in Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Official Facebook page hints at Phoenix Wright in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Get out your salt shakers and start piling it on, because over on the official Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Facebook page, they may have dropped a hint that Phoenix Wright, of Ace Attorney fame, will be added to the game.

The post started off innocent enough, simply linking to a piece of fan art which featured Phoenix Wright against the Hulk, but a Capcom staffer added this note.

This is for you Phoenix Wright lovers! (THIS IS FAN MADE AND IS NOT REAL.... at least not yet.)

Yoshinori Ono has previously said that trolling is part of his job, and it's possible troll duties may be something other staff members take a hand in, but this is interesting remark none the less.

EG.Justin Wong talks Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

EG.Justin Wong talks Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition A pre-GVN Winter Brawl 5 interview with Justin Wong is up on Evil Geniuses website. This mostly focuses on Marvel vs. Capcom 3, but also covers SSF4 Arcade Edition, and hits on some other subjects as well. Interesting stuff, here's a snip to get you going.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has been somewhat the big thing lately, almost to a point where it’s completely overshadowing SSF4. As a top fighting game player do you think that the game is close to surpassing SSF4’s popularity in the US? And did you expect this to happen as well?

Justin Wong: I don't think it will surpass SSF4's popularity but just add more hype, and more streams and tournaments to look forward to. I hope they both just get bigger and act like partners.

Now, the game has been receiving a number of criticism from well known players in the scene, with you not being a stranger to this with your infamous 7 stages-of-grief image, but you changed your mind fairly quickly after. What do you personally have to say about this?

Justin Wong: I still think the game is too cheap, but I do find the game is fun with the wacky teams I play. I like fighting cheap stuff.
