Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Battle Point tiers

Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Battle Point tiers A tier listing based on the Battle Points being accumulated in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition has been compiled via a Japanese BBS.

This is not a traditional tier listing, it's simply a statistical compilation of how many Battle Points the various characters have acquired so far during the game's release. As such, this is more of a popularity ranking than it is a showing of how strong the particular characters are.

M. Bison (Dictator), Ken, Sagat, Fei long
C. Viper, Akuma
Abel, Blanka, Ryu
Makoto, Balrog (Boxer), Rufus, Ibuki, Cody

New character roundup for Marvel vs. Capcom 3

New character roundup for Marvel vs. Capcom 3 GameSpot has a good preview article of the twelve most recently announced fighters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, sans Phoenix and Mike Haggar, giving you a paragraph or so detailing how each of the fighters play.

Obviously not heavily in-depth stuff, but informative none the less. Here's a clip.

Crimson Viper

Crimson Viper's highly technical gameplay translates well into the fast and frenetic world of MvC3. Unlike the other Street Fighter contenders we've seen, she brings in the special systems at play in Street Fighter IV. Her focus attack can absorb a number of hits and crumples foes just like before, while EX versions of her special attacks can be excited at the cost of one bar of special meter. C. Viper is a deadly fast character and easy to combo with, even if you're just mashing buttons. When you pair that with her quick and deadly burning kick, she makes an excellent character for both newcomers and veterans alike — even with such low stamina.


If you were a fan of the Master of Magnetism's previous incarnations in the series, then you'll be happy to know that little has changed. His disruptor projectile is still great for keeping opponents at a distance. Likewise, his returning gravitation attack — which grabs enemies, stuns them, and brings them closer to Magneto — is great for setting up a ground combo that you can eventually continue in the air with his launcher. The same goes for Magneto's throw, which momentarily stuns opponents in a similar way, allowing you to capitalize as long as you dash over. Magneto's level one supers — magnetic tempest and shockwave — are the same as in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, while his level three super grabs opponents and crushes them in magnetically dramatic fashion. Overall, he's a bit slower than most of the other characters on the roster, but in the hands of the right player, his attacks are pretty devastating.

Akuma in Marvel vs. Capcom 3? posted an early review of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and in a screen shot it showed Akuma as one of the playable fighters. Here's the image.

A Google cached version of the review is still available.

Some people have argued that this image looks fake, while others have claimed this website wouldn't Photoshop an image like this for one of their reviews. had previously mentioned Hakan in Super Street Fighter 4 prior to his official announcement date, so there may be a bit of history repeating itself.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 previews from CVG, Ready Up

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 previews from CVG, Ready Up A couple new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 previews hit the web recently. Both offer up a few minor details, but probably don't say anything that's going to blow you away. The first one, from focuses a lot on the melding of these two franchises, here's a clip.

Even something as insignificant as alternative costume colours are given care and attention, with alternates being based on costumes from the characters sported throughout the different comic book eras.

The faithfulness to source material even extends to interactions during battle, with characters being aware of who their teammates and opponents are and making references to any significant relationships.

Pick Iron Man, Captain America and Thor and Iron Man will start the battle by ordering The Avengers to assemble. Play as the Hulk and tag in She-Hulk and Bruce will call her Jennifer, making reference to their family connection. Put Ryu up against Spider-Man and he'll kick off the fight by saying "I hate spiders," while Spidey retorts with "You must have a black belt in stupidity if you think you're going to beat me". It's these small details that suggests that the game will appeal to an audience much broader than its predecessors.

Next up is a preview by Ready Up, here's another rip from that write up.

If the characters have some kind of story based relationship they will address them on a more personal level. For example, Wolverine will call his clone and surrogate daughter, X-23 by her real name, Laura. She in turn will call him Logan. Similarly at the start of a match your team leader’s face-off comments can be affected by the make up of your team or the first opponent. I urge you to build an Avengers team led by Captain America and check out Felicia’s comment on the state of Dormammu’s head. I’ll not spoil any more as there is real joy to be had finding them yourself.

Seth fields multiple Marvel vs. Capcom 3 questions, no turbo speed option

Seth fields multiple Marvel vs. Capcom 3 questions, no turbo speed option Seth Killian posted quite a few responses recently on the Unity Boards to fans who had questions about Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's the run down.

Will there be a turbo speed selection for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, or is there just one speed that everybody has to adapt to?

Seth Killian: Nope, no "turbo" mode — just watching people wavedash and triangle jump at you will convince you that's probably not what you would wish for :)

What's good to know about the online play besides license cards? What new features will we see? — Kit

Seth Killian: As for online, there's some cool stuff but yes, that's yet to come.
