BradyGames Marvel vs. Capcom 3 strategy guide, roster known Feb. 8th?

BradyGames Marvel vs. Capcom 3 strategy guide, roster known Feb. 8th? An anonymous tipster wrote in that BradyGames will be making an official Marvel vs. Capcom 3 strategy guide which will be available at GameStop for $19.99.

Beyond that it will be released on February 8, 2011, there is little else known about this.

As SnakeX pointed out, the entire roster should be known by this time as well, assuming the release date holds up.

Print strategy guides seem to very much be a hit or miss affair. With the advent on the internet, have you picked up any print fighting game strategy guides that you felt really helped you out? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

January Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announcement coming soon

January Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announcement coming soon A few new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 points have come up recently. Here's a brief rundown.

• Ryota Niitsuma said the first announcement in January for MvC3 is coming faster than you think at an American event. CES 2011 is right around the corner, January 6 - 9, but Capcom wasn't listed as one of the exhibitors on the CES site, although some of their employees will officially be attending the event. It's possible this statement will come into play at a different place, though.

• Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be shown at various video game expos in Japan on January 16, 22, 23 and 30th, so we may hear more about the game during these times.

• MvC3 will require 1.5 GBs of hard drive space, at least for the PlayStation 3 version.

LED Wiz joystick top demo video

This is an older clip, but for those of you looking for something a little different, there's a pretty sweet LED joystick top which lights up and turns different colors. Delusional2971 has a demo of it in action, and even if this isn't something you'd want to buy, it's still a nifty clip.
If you want to go further, you can find instructions on how it's put together, and if this is something you'd want, you can purchase the stuff you need off of GroovyGameGear.com.

Reverse Shoryuken Super Street Fighter 4 input bug with Fei Long, Gouken

The input leniency in Super Street Fighter 4 has made for some rather infamous and interesting moments for many gamers, but Neville Bamshew discovered another input shortcut (bug?) with Fei Long and Gouken.
While this works for both of these characters, it's odd that the same input doesn't work for Adon.

Quick Ryu Super Street Fighter 4 AE impressions from Valle, Choi

Quick Ryu Super Street Fighter 4 AE impressions from Valle, Choi Alex Valle left a few messages on his Twitter giving a quick update for those curious about various changes to Ryu in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Here's the rundown.

• Ryu's Light Dragon Punch anti air trade into Ultra 1 works, but you have to be really fast. Option select vanilla technique recommended by John Choi.

• Ryu can no longer do extended Light Punch Shoryuken combos into Super. His Light Punch Shoryuken has more recovery and it appears the opponent is pushed back further.

• Both Valle and Choi said they've stuck with Ryu in every Street Fighter game and it doesn't sound like either guy will be dropping him now in Arcade Edition.
