Super Street Fighter 4 charts in MetaCritic's top 5 of 2010

Super Street Fighter 4 charts in MetaCritic's top 5 of 2010 Super Street Fighter 4 appeared in the top 5 of MetaCritic's best rated video games of 2010, on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, coming in 3rd and 5th place, respectfully.

Back in July 2010, Capcom noted that the game outsold their initial sales predictions of 1.1 million and had hit 1.35 million units world wide, a number which has only grown by this time.

With the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 right around the corner, there should be even more good news, as company vice president, Christian Svensson, expects MvC3 to outperform vanilla Street Fighter 4 from a sales stand point.

Capcom's fighting games have not only been performing well in sales, but also getting a lot of acclaim from the press, which is great news for the community, and should ensure we get to see a steady supply of new titles/content in the future.

Taskmaster Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman

Taskmaster Marvel vs. Capcom 3 analysis by Sumoslamman A helpful analysis of Taskmaster in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was posted by Sumoslamman. This takes a closer look at his normals, specials and other attacks after careful inspection of his gameplay videos.

A great read if this is a character you're interested in trying out. Here's a grab.

First impession: While Taskmaster looks like he has a fairly linear playstyle, that may not be such a bad thing, especially for beginners. With sick normal range, a projectile counter, physical counter, a meaty launcher and a hard hitting hyper, I think we can expect some mean play from this masked marauder. To the training room!

Normals

This is where Taskmaster shines, or rather his sword does. The range on his normal sword-based attacks is simply staggering. If you watch Video 2 and pause at just the right frame around 2:20, just as Taskmaster tags in, you’ll notice his aerial sword slash reaches the middle of the screen! Not only that but it hits twice (Video 2 – 1:27)! Also, his low medium has sick range too and can lead into some disgusting launcher, and probable aerial Mighty Swing shenanigans (Video 1 – :23).

As always, you can find a full index of these pieces here on the EventHubs.com forums, in case you missed any or want to look over them again.
