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.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Thor character analysis from Sumoslamman

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Thor character analysis from Sumoslamman EventHubs.com member, Sumoslamman, has posted another entry in his series of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 character analysis.

This time he tackles the rather infamous Thor, who's already earned a fairly terrible reputation in the community for not being effective in the playable builds at various trade shows.

Here's a snip from the page.

Normals

It looks like the majority of his normals suffer from a case of sloth. His crouching hard attack comes out relatively quick though and leads into his launcher (Video 2 – :48) and you can cancel it into his Mighty Smash special to start some pretty dangerous combos, ending in his Level 3 hyper (Video 2 – :33). Dangerous recovery however.

Seth points out that his jumping hard attack (may be a command normal) has some unique properties. Thor leads with his hammer and rides it to the ground. Its active frames last until Thor hits the ground and if he manages to clock someone with Molinjor they go into a reel animation assuring some big damage (Video 1 – 2:11). However, it looks awkward in an aerial rave as it takes Thor straight to the ground while his enemies air recover (Video 2 – :50). That can be fixed if you follow up with a standard hard attack which knocks them to the ground and gives you a free Mighty Smash assuming they don’t tech roll (Video 2 – :28).

Super and Ultra damage comparison table for Super Street Fighter 4

Super and Ultra damage comparison table for Super Street Fighter 4 A new Super and Ultra damage comparison table for Super Street Fighter 4 has been posted here on EventHubs.com.

Once you hit the link, you'll find a listing of how much damage each of the character's Ultra and Super moves do in SSF4, including the numbers for when you connect with your Ultra meter at 50% capacity.

This is strictly a damage comparison and doesn't reflect how easy or difficult it is to land these moves, which is obviously a heavy consideration when factoring in the viability of these attacks.

It's also worth pointing out that one very weak Ultra can throw off a character's average damage ranking, which is what the the table is sorted by.

Big shout outs to SFilp who helped compile this information.
