New Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition BP category rankings for June 2011

New Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition BP category rankings for June 2011 Lynaken has provided new Battle Point rankings for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. This is from the Japanese arcade release of the game and you can see things have changed up a bit since the last time these were posted.

Sagat, Abel, Ryu, Sakura and Rufus, along with other fighters all climbed up the list a bit, but Cammy, who's regarded as one of the best characters in Arcadia's tier rankings is still pretty low on the list.

Below, the first number is the battle point ranking, and the second number is how many players are in that category. For example, 12 players had a Yun at 55,000 BP or more, 14 people had a Yun card between 55,000 - 54,999 BP, etc.

Hit the jump to see the full rankings. Each one is sorted by who has more players in the higher rank.

Question and answer session with Daigo Umehara, part 1

Question and answer session with Daigo Umehara, part 1 Part 1 of Capcom-Unity's question and answer session with Daigo Umehara is up now. This talks a lot about Daigo's own personal challenges, goals and the thought process behind his play. If you want to get into part of the mind of The Beast, make sure you read this.

Daigo, how do you "stay hungry" in the competitive scene? A lot of players, once they reach the top of their game in their local area, can sometimes grow bored of their competition and end up letting their game deteriorate. This can even happen to seasoned pros who constantly place top 3 at tournaments, or even number 1. However, you seem to be immune to this! Why is that? Do you have any advice for people who cannot always find an immediate challenge in their area? — Crysalim

Daigo: For me to play a game means trying something new and pushing myself to a new boundary. What matters to me is not whether I can win, throw a cool combo, or just even simply have fun with a game. It also has nothing to do with what others think of me or my play, but how I feel. I keep pushing myself, and that’s what drives me. I don’t compare myself with others. My inspiration comes from the desire of wanting to challenge myself.

I think one’s motivation can be easily affected despite his or her will. I would like to advise the players who look for an inspiration and motivation that the inspiration lies within them. It may not be easy, but try to set your own goal and strive to get there as hard as you can. Championships, money, and fame may come and go. Your own personal desire to be the best you can be is the only source of continuous drive.

IGN reviews Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

IGN reviews Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition IGN is one of the first major media outlets to post a review of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. They recap a lot of what people on the site already have long since known, but they give the game a respectable 8/10 score, citing that it's not a must buy for the average player, but for hardcore gamers it's a great addition.

There is a little part where they talk about some of the new features the game has, it reads:

There are a few presentational improvements in this version, mostly related to the online Replay Channel. The Arcade Edition lets you check out the replays of elite players and integrates a Twitter-like follow function that lets you more easily add their replays to your channel. Capcom also considered that adding in the Arcade Edition might fracture the online player base, and so lets you filter to search for Arcade, vanilla Super Street Fighter IV or both when looking for a match against others. It's a nice way of ensuring that purchasing Arcade Edition doesn't lock you out of the entire Super Street Fighter IV community.

Street Fighter 3 3s: Ken vs. Akuma - Three tool assisted matches

AlexxShadenk777 posted a new tool assisted set of matches for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike. He changed up the way these are put together and had this to say about it.

I kicked away the formula I used for the past four tool assisted fights, and present here something which, I hope, shows more solid sort of playing rather than unrealistic — regarding the usage of parrying, reactions and counters, that is. It's still crazy as ever, and I made it a point to not make long sessions of parrying between the two fighters.

Also this way I can showcase all supers for both characters. This kind of tool assisted video, I think, will be more appreciated!

No future DLC plans for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

No future DLC plans for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition It was previously stated that Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition will be the last entry in the SF4 series, wanting to dig a little deeper, I asked Capcom's Christian Svensson if they had any plans for additional DLC for the game.

He had this to say.

There isn't any additional content planned in any form. I won't say that's set in stone, but we're not looking at extending it further.

It's interesting that Svensson states that there's no additional content planned in any form, not just DLC. It sounds like Arcade Edition is truly the end for Street Fighter 4.
