The Marvelous Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross

Mike Ross and Gootecks have launched a new series, similar to their Excellent Adventures that focused on Super Street Fighter 4, but the duo try their hand at Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Here's an official blurb.

Gootecks and Mike Ross are FINALLY back! Over the past few weeks, SSF4 hype has all but dried up and MvC3 has risen to the spotlight. Thus, our heroes attempt to traverse the uncharted waters of MvC online... but there's a problem! Mike is a seasoned and experienced Marvel player. Gootecks... NOT SO MUCH.

THEREFORE, the idea of this series is to help Gootecks LEVEL UP in his Marvel expertise! With the help of Mike, the foes he faces online, and possibly you, the audience! And by doing so, we hope to level up some of YOU who are new to Marvel as well!

Either way, it will be an adventure! And fear not, Gootecks and Mike Ross have not forgotten Street Fighter 4. Think of it as an extended break...

Community news roundup for March 3rd

Community news roundup for March 3rd

• On the official MvC3 Facebook page, Capcom said to, "Mark your calendars: Next Tuesday, March 8th, Machinimalive.com. That's it, for now." No other details about what exactly this event will include were offered.

• Capcom will be at PAX East (Boston, Massachusetts) and South by Southwest (Austin, Texas) from March 11 - 13th, giving users some hands on time with the 3DS version of SSF4, along with other non-fighting game titles.

• IGN's Jessica Chobot did a quick video walkthrough of the teams you need to assemble to complete MvC3's various achievements, for those of you not already well versed in Capcom/Marvel lore.

• Jason24cf posted a video interview with joystick dual mod master Gummowned, also demoing some LED button modifications that light up differently based on different combinations.

• Lastly, one of the most horrendous Street Fighter videos you will ever see was posted. It's a Street Fighter dance clip that's highly repetitive, annoying, and is actually a chore to watch. The camera man does take multiple upskirt shots of the girl who plays Chun-Li, though. If you can manage to sit through this entire video, you'll have wasted 3 ½ minutes of your life you will never get back. Submitted by AlbertWesker.com and Y2J_BR.

GamesRadar looks closer at Marvel vs. Capcom 3's character power grids

GamesRadar has taken a closer look at Marvel vs. Capcom 3's various power grid rankings, which you can find under the Gallery/Character Bios option in the main menu. Apparently, all of that boulder punching has made Chris Redfield really smart and Spencer's bionic arm makes him capable of flying at the speed of sound. Yeah...

You can use this page on Marvel.com to get a barometer of what the various power levels should mean.

Dee Jay Super Street Fighter 4 guide revised

Dee Jay Super Street Fighter 4 guide revised Nyoronoru has revised the Dee Jay Super Street Fighter 4 guide here on EventHubs.com. There's a solid breakdown of his specials, normals, supers, combos and other stuff to help you understand and improve with this character.

Here's a grab from the page.

Dee Jay is a mixed bag character that can be played in both a zoning and rushdown style. He is equipped with both fireballs and extremely ambiguous crossups along with a strong knockdown game. His jump has a very unusual trajectory which adds up to his nasty crossup techniques. Dee Jay also has a good punish game with his slide, fast walk speed and Sobat Kicks.

Dee Jay's weaknesses lie in the fact that he has slow or narrowly applicable reversals. This fact alone makes it difficult for him to defeat offense-heavy characters. His damage output is also below average, forcing him to attack much more than most characters to get his KO. His backdash also is really bad, not traveling much distance to allow him more space in his zoning game.

You can also hit up the central discussion area for Dee Jay here on the forums, which is ran by Dj A, to find a bit more information.
