X-23 vs. Felicia Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

X-23 vs. Felicia Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown Profiles of X-23 and Felicia were uploaded to Marvel.com by Sumoslamman. As with past articles, this has an overview of both fighter's powers, history and play styles.

X-23's Play Style: While Laura may be a clone of Wolverine, she doesn’t play like him in the least. Wolverine is pure rush; X-23 is a healthy dose of rush with some mix-ups thrown in. Her normal moves have deceiving range because of those razor-sharp claws and she has a few neat little hops that can help her cross up her opponent or create some nasty combos near the ground. She also has some dash attacks that help negotiate space, hit low, OTG and can be canceled if your opponent catches on to your gameplan. Plus her hypers, barring her Level 3, can easily fit into her combos. What’s not to love?

Felicia's Play Style: Because this pretty kitty relies on getting in close to do her damage, she has a couple of moves to get her there. Rolling Buckler gives her a few options to close the distance but her Delta Kick is where it’s at, getting her up out of the range of most projectiles and then putting her quickly to the far side of the screen right in her opponent’s face. Like X-23, Felicia has a low assist that will do wonders for unblockable setups and her Kitty’s Helper hyper is a ton of fun to watch as one of her furry companions leaps around the screen chasing down the enemy, doing damage, and interrupting attacks. Felicia definitely gets by with a little help from her friends.

Playing H-O-R-S-E with combos in Super Street Fighter 4

Lukenessmonster and Snoooootch came up with a fun game for Super Street Fighter 4. It's a take on the basketball game of H-O-R-S-E where if you miss a shot, you get a letter. The SSF4 twist is that one player performs a combo, then the next person has to replicate it, and if they're unable to do so, they get a letter. Here's a video explaining the game.
Note: Under no circumstances should anyone play this game against Desk (Biffotasty).

Thor vs. Amaterasu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

Thor vs. Amaterasu Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown Thor and Amaterasu are the latest characters to be profiled on Marvel.com by Sumoslamman. As with past showdown spolight articles, you get to see an overview of both characters, including some notes on their play styles. Here's a clip.

Thor's Play Style: Thor needs to get in close to do damage but when he gets in there, watch out! Mighty Strike and Mighty Smash can help him close the distance while attacking and if Mighty Smash connects, you get a free ground bounce for free punishment. His Mighty Tornado command grab can be comboed out of into some terrifying aerial shenanigans but the trick is landing that first hit. His 8-way air dash can be canceled, helping to surprise enemies, and his Mighty Thunder hyper is incredibly versatile, giving Thor an edge in any combo situation.

Amaterasu's Play Style: Amaterasu has so many options in this game it’s ridiculous! She has three different sets of normal attacks to keep your opponents guessing, and each comes with its own unique special move. Ammy can play keep-away with her Cold Star projectile and the long reach of her Rosary Bead normals or dash in with the Reflector or the Glaive to start some combo action into OTG into hyper madness. Her instant full screen Okami Shuffle does great damage and her tiny hit box causes tons of normals, specials and hypers to go right over her head!
