Svensson does huge fan Q&A session about Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Svensson does huge fan Q&A session about Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Capcom's Christian Svensson made a ton of posts about Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition on the Unity Boards recently, covering both the console of PC versions. Topics mostly touch on non-gameplay aspects, like how the DLC costumes will work, what channels the game is being released through and things of that nature.

Interesting stuff regardless, hit the link below for a heck of a lot more information.

Will all the super and ultra costume packs be in the PC version of SSF4 AE, or as paid DLC again?

Svensson: All costumes will be available separately as paid DLC.

Will there be a lower price for PC SF4 owners?

Svensson: We may do something like this with some of our digital distribution partners. I'm still mulling it over.

Is July the fixed time frame for release on the PC? — Hingis

Svensson: It is barring some problem with the tail end of development. It's been being worked on for quite some time now but the console versions had to finish before it could be wrapped up. Thus the slight lag.

Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have been listed for PC

Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have been listed for PC As it turns out, a PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken was not supposed to be listed on a press release file Capcom sent out when the embargo for Captivate was lifted.

Along with mentioning that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game would release some time in 2012, a PC version was listed as well. Capcom's Christian Svensson had this to say about it.

Svensson: I can't say that it's happening and I won't say that it isn't happening... apologies for the confusion. It was listed on the FAQ sheet when it shouldn't have been there.

I realize that's raising more questions than its answering, but stay tuned.

Sven mentions why Street Fighter 3 Online Edition wasn't shown at Captivate

Sven mentions why Street Fighter 3 Online Edition wasn't shown at Captivate Sven briefly updated fans on why Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition wasn't shown at Capcom's Captivate event, and commented on a few other things as well on the Unity Boards.

How come we didn't hear anything about Street Fighter 3 Online Edition at Captivate?

Svensson: We had two fighting games in the spotlight at Captivate and every project needs its own time to shine. SF3:OE will have it's time soon...

What's up with these photos Ono keeps posting? Do they pertain to SF3:OE or not?

Svensson: The reason Ono's twitpic isn't clear is because you're meant to not quite know what it is... yet. It's Ono's way I suppose.

So unfortunately, we'll have to keep you in suspense a bit longer.

I'd love to see a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom sequel.

Seth Killian: I'd like to see it too, lots of fun possibilities, but apologies — nothing to discuss right now.

Am I allowed to make YouTube videos showing gameplay footage of old Capcom games? — Javey

Svensson: If it's just gameplay footage, there should not be a problem.

BurnYourBra discusses the difficulties of being a female gamer

BurnYourBra discusses the difficulties of being a female gamer Jason24cf of Dominion Method Gaming recently interviewed DMG|BurnYourBra to discuss what it's like being a female gamer in the fighting game community. She shares some negative and positive experiences, along with details about her personal life.

Warning: There are some racial remarks in this interview that have not been edited out. I felt it was better that these go up in their entirety instead of readers having to guess at what was being said.

Forward by DMG|jason24cf: I only have been a member of the fighting game community for a short while, little less than a year now, in fact. And from what I have seen on streams and what I seen at two majors I have attended was a really strong community where players help one another. That’s not always case. What I read the other day from a post by a gamer was really a shock to me. So I reached out to her to find out what went down, this is her response.

DMG|jason24cf: I’m here with DMG’s own BurnYourBra. Thank you for taking some time out of your busy schedule to do this interview. I wanted to have this sit down with you because I respect you as a player. I read some real foul stuff went down at a recent tournament in Houston you competed in. What went down at this tournament that upset you so much to post your frustration on Facebook?

DMG|BurnYourBra: Well, this didn't happen at the last tournament I went to. Honestly, this has probably been occurring for almost a year now and just recently I've decided to address it. There seems to be an attitude in the fighting game community that I've been noticing lately.

An introduction to Wednesday Night Fights on IGN

An introduction to Wednesday Night Fights on IGN James Chen wrote an article for IGN talking about Wednesday Night Fights. This goes into how the tournament started and what it has evolved into, along with the current landscape of things. Here's a snip.

In Season 2, which ran from March to April, other players established themselves with consistent results, and generally the same group of players finished in the top eight. Combofiend played a few more weeks this season and would always finish strong, at least in the top four, while Clockw0rk would play spoiler every week using his trademark Amaterasu, Dr. Doom, and Phoenix team. Many players bemoaned that Phoenix, once transformed into Dark Phoenix, was "broken." Players who fell to Clockw0rk's Dark Phoenix often left the venue immediately after their loss in a "salty" rage. However, Justin Wong and Floe still finished 1st and 2nd every week they showed to the event until the final week, where Justin played an unfamiliar team and Floe was defeated earlier than normal. The overall season result? Justin finished Season 2 in 1st place and Floe finished in 3rd. Clockw0rk, thanks to consistently placing high all four weeks, finished the season in 2nd place.

This will be a series of articles, as Chen will break down where things stand every week.
