EventHubs drop down menu redesigned

EventHubs drop down menu redesigned Due to a clutter problem, and wanting to create some room for the new games coming out, like Darkstalkers Resurrection and Injustice: Gods Among Us, we've redesigned our drop down menu here on EventHubs. To check out the change, simply mouse over the "More" icon on the right hand side of the website.

Most of the links are the same, with a few additions, and if you're looking for a guide for your favorite game, it should now actually be a little bit easier to track down, because everything has been grouped into categories.

We generally try not to change things around too much, as we realize this is annoying to our readers who are used to finding things in a certain spot, but because of the aforementioned reasons, we had to make some tweaks to the site's navigation.

If you have further questions about the changes, please check out the mini FAQ below, or leave a comment with your feedback.

Where did the News icon go?
The news button has been removed from the navigation menu, BUT if you click the EventHubs logo it functions the exact same way the news button did previously. Simply aim a little higher than you used to, and you'll be set.

Where did the Submit News icon go?
You can find submit news links at the top and bottom of the website, and now in the drop down menu, under the "News and features" area.

Why did you change the menu? I liked the old one!
We were running out of space and needed to sort everything in a bit cleaner of a way. Things were getting a bit cluttered and were only going to get worse with time. This new drop down menu should make it easier to find the game you're looking for, especially for new users.

I have some questions and/or concerns about these changes and other things.
If you have feedback or you'd like to see us do something different, please leave a comment below. We'll actively be reading this story for comments. Your feedback helps shape EventHubs, always has and always will.

Details on Skullgirls' possible DLC characters from Lab Zero

During last week's Satly Cupcakes stream, the Lab Zero crew were jumping on the stream to give some details on the possible additional character to Skullgirls.

In particular Mike Z was going over how some of the characters would play if they were added into the game. Below are a few that we here at EventHubs found interesting.

Stanley - Attack names and ideas are Shark Bite, Street Shark Dive, Rising Upper, and Shark Knuckle (from Captain Kid in World Heroes 2). Mike said he would probably be a charge character.

Andy - He would be a mix of Tekken Steve (not SFxT), Dudley's dodge attacks, T.J Combo from Killer Instinct, and Akihiko from P4. He would be more of an up close rush down character. Might have a counter attack utilizing his anvil head. I believe Alex said he was initially a joke character.

Taliesin - Has a remote parasite named Muse and his arms have been replaced with Muse's wooden arms. Remote Parasites always require a body part from the host. In Taliesin's case, his fingers are in Muse's mouth, which is why her mouth is always closed (this info came from Alex). A creeper who likes to turn women into living instruments using the abilities of his remote parasite. Muse is very loyal to him despite this personality trait of his. Muse is a Violin and not a Cello, contrary to popular belief. Part of the assassination group of the Circus Troupe that Cerebella is apart of.

Mike said that his kick buttons would control Muse when she's separated from him; however, no details were given on what constitutes as being separated from Taliesin or how that would be done. Mike said that Taliesin would not be a traditional puppet-type character, ala Blazblue's Carl. Mike was thinking about something similar to Kankuro's puppet-style from Naruto games (not sure if he meant the gamecube ones or the PS3 ones). From my experiences with the PS3 games, if Kankuro moves around the puppets don't follow him but if you press the block button the puppet would come back to Kankuro, so there was a lot of positioning involved.

Head over to the Skullheart forums for a breakdown of all the characters.

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong has once again posted a new blog over on Sega's website detailing his progress with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Justin was challenged by Sega to compete in the Sega Cup tournament in April and has been documenting his learning process.

Justin notes how he's been training as of late, his experience in the Virtua Fighter 5 tournament at Winter Brawl and more. Here's a small except from the article.

During my travels I’ve been entering VF5FS tournaments across the country and it has been a great learning experience. I played in the Winterbrawl tournament two weeks ago and lost to one of the best players in the country, Denkai. I couldn’t get anything started and he killed me, but his awesome use of fuzzy guarding was a good wake up call for what I need to learn to take my game to the next level. I played in Loser’s against a Brad player. I really didn’t know what to expect from Brad but at least I was able to keep it very close. I was very depressed but the VF players on the East Coast told me to keep it up and that they were impressed, which was pretty nice of them.

The week after I went to Wednesday Night Fights hosted by Superdojo and Level Up and entered the local tournament there for VF. I placed 3rd in that tournament and I was pretty happy that I wasn’t the worst player at the tourney. I think I got that far because I fought three Jackys in a row so I knew what to expect, but it was a great learning experience to see what other good players were doing with my character. I hope to enter more VF tournaments before the Sega Cup because I believe that the more experience I get, the better my chances are.

Missed the first update from Justin? Check it out here.

Possible reboot to other Darkstalkers games depending on sales and feedback of Darkstalkers Resurrection, input lag from arcade and console versions

Possible reboot to other Darkstalkers games depending on sales and feedback of Darkstalkers Resurrection, input lag from arcade and console versions Darkstalkers Resurrection's producer Tomoaki Ayano told GameWatch that Capcom may consider doing a sequel to Darkstalkers Resurrection with reboots of Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire and Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers' Revenge depending on the sales and fan feedback.

Additionally, Combofiend has posted a new Q&A session with Ayano-san over on Capcom-Unity

Any hidden characters?

A: Obviously I can’t say, but no one has been removed, that’s for sure!

What exactly is this Premium Sound Track for the Japanese e-Capcom version?

A: It includes a special mix of original tracks from Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3, character BGM, and so on. The cover art was done specially for the CD.

Please tell us about the input lag in the arcade and console versions.

A: We tested Darkstalkers Resurrection with CRT monitors. Compared to the arcade versions of Night Warriors and Darkstalkers 3, the input delay on Darkstalkers Resurrection is within 2 frames. From a software and hardware perspective, that is the closest we can tune the game. The main reason that you may experience a lot of input lag is due to the type of TV/monitor you use, so we recommend using either a monitor with a very high refresh rate, or a CRT monitor. (The latter may be hard to do in this day and age…)

We used Mad Catz Arcade FightStick PRO controllers to do our testing. There’s no difference in input between the Mad Catz controllers and the standard controllers that come with your system.
