Community news roundup for December 15th

Community news roundup for December 15th

• Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition is officially out in Japan now. Expect videos and additional information to come in soon. Some arcades in the states and else where will be getting it too. The arcade tracker on the site will be getting these new locations soon.

• Rumor: I've heard it from a few different sources that SSF4 Arcade Edition may have more characters to be revealed, and they'll be made available over time, like Akuma was in the arcade release of vanilla Street Fighter 4. This would extend the roster beyond Yang, Yun, Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma — but this is very much a rumor. There are conflicting reports saying that there are only 37 playable characters and Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma will only be boss characters, although I'm hearing more of the prior claims as of late. As with all rumors, it's always a good idea to reserve judgment until more is known. Thanks to Kenshin Hiroki for this tip.

• A Nesys card is being made available for SSF4 AE, which will expire on January 1, 2011. This card can be used to log in to the game, and it's kind of like a credit card which contains all of your game information. On Jan. 1 a new card will be made available that won't expire for a full year. Again, props to Kenshin for this information.

• Kenzo posted a video interview with Tokido, mostly talking about his strategies and playstyle using Akuma in SSF4. BerzerkDC also posted an interview with GamerBee. Submitted by Zanomaru.

• Mike Ross' big online match, which is a side thing to the Excellent Adventure series with Gootecks, is up now. The SSF4 match is from Newegg's Winter Wanfest tournament. Sent in by SavageFred.

Yun Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide

Yun Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition guide A new guide for Yun in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition has been posted here on EventHubs.com.

This covers his move set, armor breaking attacks, target combos and more stuff to help you get started if you get the chance to play Arcade Edition.

There's a lot of basic information in this guide, as the game is just getting into player's hands, so there's still a lot to be discovered. Here's a snip from the page.

He's very fast and his Dive Kick is still strong, letting Yun apply a ton of offensive pressure with few gaps, and setting up his damaging combos along the way. All of this offensive pressure helps him build up Super meter quickly, relatively, so he can unleash a Genei Jin and potentially do a ton of damage.

Yun's Genei Jin was actually strengthened from how it was in Third Strike, but since it's more difficult to build up a full meter in Street Fighter 4, and EX moves are helpful to his overall game, it's still balanced out.

To compensate for his terrific offensive capabilities, Yun has a low stamina (health) rating and his individual attacks don't do as much damage in comparison with most of the cast, so it's very important that you pull off his big combos.

A guide for Yang will also be posted in the very near future. Until then, it's still worth checking out the Third Strike guide for Yang as a lot of the information there is surprisingly relevant still.

Beat By Contest Super Street Fighter 4 replay: Sako vs. Kindevu

Team Sp00ky has a replay of the Beat by Contest SSF4 match between Sako (Fei Long, Rose) and Kindevu (Sagat, C. Viper, Rufus) up. This is a first to five set and the clip is almost 35 minutes long, although you can skip around a bit just to get to the meat of the matches.

Mago (Sagat) vs. GamerBee (Adon) Super Street Fighter 4 matches

Shadoloo.com posted a 44 minute clip of Mago (Sagat) and GamerBee (Adon) playing a long series of Super Street Fighter 4 matches.

These two players are exceptional, and if you can spare the time to watch this, you're in for a treat.

Nathan Spencer Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character analysis

Nathan Spencer Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character analysis Nathan Spencer, from Bionic Commando, is the latest character to have an in-depth analysis written up for him by Sumoslamman.

As with prior articles, this provides detailed information on this character's moves and play style and what you can expect from him come February. Here's a snip.

First impression

Most mobile grappler ever! He can grab you from a screen away, grab you while you’re laying helpless after a beat down, grab you while you’re in the air, and of course he has a sick unblockable grab with what looks like different followups. Holy S team it looks like we might have a Jack of All Trades on our hands here.

Normals

Spencer’s normals look dang quick. Not only that but it seems like they do great damage. His little aerial raves simply womp, even without the OTG (off the ground) grapple claw followups. His low magic series has great range (Video 2 – 1:52) and his low hard attack comes out really quick and combos into his launcher (Video 2 – :16) and his Bionic Punch hyper for some quick and dirty damage (Video 2 – :50). That 4 hit combo does nearly 50% damage to MODOK!

You can find an archive of previous articles in this series here on the EventHubs.com forums.

Drinking and online Super Street Fighter 4 mix?

Dark Syde Geoff, a.k.a. Geoff The Hero, 'chronicled' some of his experiences with the recent EVO online tournament — after getting plastered. What follows is some very NSFW language, but also some embarrassingly hilarious rapping and Street Fighter play.
You'd think that drinking and Street Fighter wouldn't mix, but Geoff actually got a decent ways into his bracket.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character notes from Japanese Q&A

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character notes from Japanese Q&A RyanCE transcribed a Q&A session that was held with the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 developers that contained a few interesting notes about the characters who were and were not included.

• The Thing was considered at one point, but they felt he would be too similar to Hulk.

• Human Torch was a completed character, but he ate up too much RAM and had to be taken out.

• Marvel suggested Super-Skrull as a Human Torch replacement.

• To balance the roster out, Niitsuma wanted to include a young Marvel female, and ultimately X-23 was decided on.

• Niitsuma intentionally held off Spider-Man's announcement until the Tokyo Game Show because he is a popular character in Japan.

• Marvel was reluctant to grant permission to include Shuma-Gorath, but Capcom convinced them that he is popular and an important part of the series history.

• Shuma-Gorath was the first Marvel character that Capcom proposed to Marvel — and he may have originally been planned as an on-disc character.

• Felicia has yet to appear in an official English language gameplay video because of the ESRB.

Awesomely bad review of Street Fighter Alpha 2

Vintage reviews of games can provide some rather hilarious moments, and the video below is no exception. While this starts off bad, if you manage to stick with it — it gets a lot worse.

Simultaneous throw outcomes in Street Fighter IV

Error1 has a new video showing the outcome of two simultaneous throw commands being entered in at the same time in vanilla Street Fighter 4. To ensure the commands came out at the same time, tools assistance was used in the creation of these videos.

While this is for Super Street Fighter 4's predecessor, things should work the same way in the current title.
