Sean Street Fighter 3 Third Strike guide by Renynoise

Sean Street Fighter 3 Third Strike guide by Renynoise Renynoise created a new guide for Sean in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike. Ranked dead last in the tier rankings and not played by many people, the basketball thrower is a bit of an acquired taste.

If you're up for a challenge, this might be a character right up your alley. Here's a snip from the guide.

While Sean is listed last in the tier rankings for Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, and he has some very difficult match ups, some players feel he is under appreciated.

After Capcom toned down his popular 2-hit Uppercut, changed his move set, and made him worse than he was in 2nd Impact, many fans turned their back on him. It takes a lot of time and patience to learn to use Sean well, and you can win with him if you're devoted enough, but the road is a difficult one.

Many of Sean's moves are punishable if blocked, so you have to be careful and really pick your spots with him — and hit confirm whenever possible. His moves can take off a good amount of damage though, so you can drain your opponent's life reasonably quickly if your execution is on point and you make really good reads.

Evil Ryu officially coming to Super Street Fighter 4 AE March 25

Evil Ryu officially coming to Super Street Fighter 4 AE March 25 After being unlocked prematurely Evil Ryu is scheduled to make his official debut this week, March 25, in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, according to Famitsu magazine, via 1Up.

"Each skill on Evil Ryu launches more slowly than regular Ryu, but tends to have more force," wrote Japan's Famitsu magazine in their coverage. "The control feel is nearly the same as Ryu, but the basic attacks that get used the most, like crouching medium or heavy kicks, launch more slowly as well. On the other hand, the opening after firing a hadouken is smaller, which seemed to make him pretty strong in projectile combat. Like Akuma, he doesn't have much energy, so fighting with him using the same style as Ryu will get you defeated pretty quickly."

SSF4 Arcade Edition DLC for the consoles has been all but officially confirmed at this point, and it's expected that an announcement will be made about it in April at Capcom's Captivate event.

About 13 gameplay changes in new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 patch

About 13 gameplay changes in new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 patch Word came in this afternoon that about 13 gameplay changes were made to Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This does depend on how you categorize/count the updates, though, but this should keep the community hunting for a little while to track down what has been changed.

This was mentioned by an extremely reliable source, but one that wished to remain anonymous.

There were also a number of non-gameplay bug fixes. The official patch notes may be released some time in the near future, if they are, you'll hear about it here.

Here's a quick rundown of the things discovered so far. Note, Dormammu's Jumping Medium Attack may have not changed at all, as it appears the Brady Games guide, which a lot of people are using to double check stuff, has some inaccurate damage values listed.

1. Sentinel's health reduced.

2. Akuma's hit stun on Hurricane Kick decreased, removing infinite.
