GamesRadar's history of the Vs. series with Seth Killian

GamesRadar's history of the Vs. series with Seth Killian GamesRadar did a video/article package with Capcom's Seth Killian talking about the history of the Vs. series. This starts off with how various gameplay aspects from earlier Capcom fighters made their way into what became the Vs. series.

This is a terrific video, with a lot of fun details to check out. Here's a snip.

As Seth points out in the video, many of the fundamentals of the Vs series begin with Children of the Atom. You’ve got aerial combos, big open playfields, super jumps, hyper combos and, most obviously, all the meticulously animated sprites that would be used for the next six years.

That led into 1995’s Marvel Super Heroes, which expanded the cast beyond the X-Men, adding heavy hitters like Spider Man, Captain America and Dr Doom. Its notable exclusive feature is the Infinity Gauntlet and its gems (Space, Time, Reality, Power, Soul and Mind), which you can activate during a match for various effects. These two titles performed well, and Street Fighter was still doing big business, so that naturally led to…

Taskmaster vs. C. Viper Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown

Taskmaster vs. C. Viper Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown Taskmaster has a wicked counter and C. Viper is a speed demon, mix up character. These are just two of the notes from Sumoslamman in the latest Marvel vs. Capcom 3 showdown spotlight, which breaks down both fighter's play style and has background story details too.

Taskmaster's Play Style: Taskmaster has awesome range on all of his normal sword slashes making him a significant threat from mid-screen. His Legion Arrow hyper is very useful for OTGing opponent after an air combo and punishing because of it’s quick start up. His Mighty Swing is awesome for extending ground and aerial combos and Taskmaster can counter nearly every move in the game, reflecting projectiles, punishing physical attacks, and even hypers!

C. Viper's Play Style: C. Viper is all about speed and mix-ups. Her triangle jump is wicked quick and puts her right in a position to deal tons of damage up close. She has kept most of her signature attacks from Street Fighter 4 and you can use EX versions of all her special moves, granting them new attributes, while consuming one bar of hyper meter. She has a nasty high and low mix-up game and because of her speed she’s very difficult to predict. Also, the fact that she can focus attacks makes her that much more dangerous if your opponent is getting predictable.
