Marvel vs. Capcom 3 float glitch by Desk

Desk's newest video focuses on a float glitch in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

With 'Hurricane Kick' assist-type Ryu as your 2nd or 3rd character. Simply block any attack, perform a crossover counter and activate X-Factor as Ryu is jumping in.

You can't walk, dash, jump, perform specials or do any supers while in this state. However, you can still do all normals, call assists and Team Hyper Combo.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Punishing Okami Shuffle on block with hypers

A video showing how to counter Amaterasu's Okami Shuffle hyper in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was posted by Ksizzle.
He had this to say about the clip.

A lot of people still think it is a constant hitbox which is very wrong and I depict ways to my knowledge on countering with hypers and very important information on the 2nd part of the move, showing that it has a big deadzone that some characters can take advantage of. Just wanna put this out there so people can learn about it as I still see top players at tourneys just block without punishing when they very well could.

Capcom's Svensson clarifies rules for tourney organizers

Capcom's Svensson clarifies rules for tourney organizers Capcom's Christian Svensson recently spoke about the rules tournament organizers should follow when hosting competitions that feature their games. He also talked about the Vs. series, and when users who experienced a delay in receiving MvC3 from the official store will hear about getting their copy of the Brady Games strategy guide.

Here's the low down from the Unity Boards.

[A question was asked about fighting game tournaments and if they need to attain permission from Capcom to play their games at them. Usually, permission is not needed, but if you're running a for profit tournament, there are different rules, which Christian Svensson explains below.]

Svensson: I'll add a caveat... if you're charging sponsors or otherwise running a "for profit venture" in competitive gaming using one of our games in the competitive scene, it does indeed require an official license (read: contract and approval) from us.

Failing to do so will end up with folks being on the receiving end of a cease and desist. It has happened several times in the past few years.
