GameSpot answers Marvel vs. Capcom 3 questions from fans

On GameSpot's Crosshairs the crew members answer a few questions about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from fans. This gets underway around the 4 minute mark, but doesn't delve a lot into game play stuff. Instead GameSpot mostly gives their opinion on DLC characters, like Frank West and Phoenix Wright, but they also talk about about how the title has come together overall.

Interesting, but not anything to go out of your way to see, unless have you some free time on your hands.

Part 3: Arcadia's interview with Daigo, Mago & Tokido The third and final translated part of Arcadia Magazine's interview with Daigo, Mago and Tokido concerning Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition is up now on Versus City's website. In case you missed any of these along the way, you can find links to all three on the home page, here's a grab from today's entry.

Daigo: I think Yang is quite strong as well. His health isn’t that great but he’s got some strong attacks.

Mago: Yang’s strength is with his Seien Enbu (laughs). That’s incredibly dangerous.

Daigo: Yea but that’s a super combo move, so that’s not going to be used a lot.

Nuki tells a story about Sako the 'Fourth Child'

Nuki had an audio interview a ways back telling a story about one of his encounters with Sako, who's well known for playing a killer Cammy in SSF4 and having outstanding execution. This story revolves around a Vampire Savior (DarkStalkers 3) tournament and Daigo Umehara and Nuki competing against an player who had a lot of hype surrounding him, and turned out to be Sako.

This is a pretty good listen, and even though it's in Japanese, a translation is available that plays over the video, which was uploaded by Cccloner999. If hearing how some of the best players in our community got to be more well known interests you, this is a great listen.

Dormammu vs. Morrigan Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

Dormammu vs. Morrigan Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown A Dormammu and Morrigan overview is the latest write up to be posted on Marvel.com by Sumoslamman. This goes over the powers of both fighters while also offering an overview of their history.

There's also a very helpful bit on their play styles in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Here's a clip.

Dormammu's Play Style: Dormammu takes a ton of damage, so you’re going to want to keep him out of direct melee scuffles. Dark Hole and Purification help to keep opponents from closing the distance, and once you’ve powered up his Dark Spell specials (Destruction and Creation), you can unleash an unholy onslaught of hellfire on your enemies that hits full-screen! Also, Stalking Flare is great to just throw out if you find yourself in a bind because it tracks and does great chip damage. Do not let your enemies get close to the Dread Dormammu!

Morrigan's Play Style: This sultry succubus can fire her Soul Spark to keep enemies locked down while she air dashes in to start her assault. She has a ton of quick normals, but what’s really important is learning how to effectively utilize her Shadow Servant hyper. Shadow Servant puts another Morrigan on the screen behind her enemy that copies all of the original’s attacks. If you hit the enemy once, they’re going to be comboed for HUGE damage. One Morrigan’s enough to deal with, but two? Oh the humanity!

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 lacks spectator and replay save/view feature, for now

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 lacks spectator and replay save/view feature, for now DualShockers.com posted a short hands-on preview of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The author talks about how beautiful the game looks running in high resolution (and a full frame rate), something that many people viewing online videos have missed out on.

There is some bad news, though. A few of the staples SSF4 players have gotten used to won't be available from the get go for MvC3. Here's a grab explaining a bit more.

When Marvel vs. Capcom 3 releases in just under two weeks, the game will not have spectator mode. Players in player matches with lobbies of up to 8 people will not be able to watch the game taking place as they wait their turn. This is said to be remedied in the very near future, but still. Another feature that players would and should expect is the ability to record and save videos of their matches. This ain’t happening. And this may or may not be remedied (ouch!).

One of the first Marvel vs. Capcom 3 reviews gives the game a 90%

One of the first Marvel vs. Capcom 3 reviews gives the game a 90% Computer and Video Games caught an early review of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from the UK magazine GamesMaster, where they awarded the title a 90% score and a Gold Award.

Here's a blurb from the page where they offer a few snippets from the article.

Though it says that new players may have "a hard time following what's going on let alone influence the chaos" the simplified control system always "makes something spectacular happen" so anyone can enjoy it.

Fights feature "a few moments of magnificence per match" thanks to the lenient mechanics but also engages the hardcore fighting game player through "ludicrously complex combos".

Although some might find MvC 3 "too explosive for its own good", the folks over at GM said "they can't get enough".

Prior to this image being uploaded, MarkMan responded to a complaint about the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 FightStick not being original, and replied with:

Sorry, we can't please everyone. Trust me I wanted to do something new, but things happen. Our next line will be amazing.

It's possible he's talking about the product pictured above here, when he's referring to the next thing in their lineup. After the above comment was made, he added this note.

Fighting Game fans, expect more news in the coming week... I'm out for blood...

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 basics video tutorial by EuroGamer

EuroGamer has a basic video tutorial for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, walking you through such things as the lifebars and assist systems, but then it jumps to explaining how the Light/Medium/Hard chain combo system works in the game, and touches on air combos.

Very helpful if you're not familiar with this stuff already.

Part 2: Arcadia's interview with Daigo, Mago & Tokido

Part 2: Arcadia's interview with Daigo, Mago & Tokido Versus City has translated a second part of the interview Arcadia Magazine had with Daigo, Mago and Tokido talking about Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. Here's a short grab from the page, hit the link to read the rest of the entry.

The other S ranked character is Fei-Long, what are your thoughts? He’s definitely strong but not a lot of players use him compared to Yun.

Mago: Fei-Long really is the strongest, isn’t he? He’s definitely got an advantage over most of the cast compared to Yun and Yang.

Daigo: There’s no mistaking it, right now he’s the best character in the game. No matter who uses him, the damage off of MK Flame Kick x FADC x Chicken Wing has not changed (laughs).
