Street Fighter X Tekken Gem listing fully updated here on EventHubs

Street Fighter X Tekken Gem listing fully updated here on EventHubs When Street Fighter X Tekken first dropped in March of last year, we here at EventHubs compiled a gem listing that featured each gem available at the time. With the v2013 patch now in full effect, we have taken it upon ourselves to fully update our gem listings here on the site.

Each gem that is currently available in-game is listed with various bits of information included. Number of slots required to equip, primary effect, secondary effect, duration, activation condition and which DLC gem pack you can find them in is all listed here.

If a gem is a part of the DLC packs, underneath each of those gem names you will find a couple of acronyms encased in parentheses indicating which pack they belong to. For example, below gem #003 Immense Power Lv. 2 you will see (BGP4, SF), which means you can find this particular gem in Boost Gem Pack #4 and it belongs to the Street Fighter cast of characters.

A legend detailing each of these acronyms can be found at the bottom of the gem listings page to help you navigate through it more easily.

Now with our updated gem listing, feel free to look through it and decide which gem load outs you plan on using for your Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 teams. We hope you all find this chart useful.

Tom Taylor, Injustice comic writer: Writing Superman's tragedy was the hardest thing I'd ever written

Tom Taylor, Injustice comic writer: Writing Superman's tragedy was the hardest thing I'd ever written This story contains spoilers to the Injustice: Gods Among us prequel comic, read at your own risk.

IGN did another interview with Injustice: Gods Among Us prequel comic writer, Tom Taylor where they discuss various topics from the comic. Most of what is talked is the death of Lois Lane and her unborn child at the hands of Superman.

In particular, he notes that is was the hardest thing he's ever written and that he was "horrified" when he was told he had to write a comic where his hero was tricked into killing his wife and unborn child.

Additionally, Tom is asked about future events that fans might have to embrace themselves for.

IGN: I’m not sure things can get any darker than they are right now in Injustice, but are there any other events on this scale that fans should brace themselves for?

Taylor: This is a dark comic. There’s no doubt about it. I think I said in our last chat that nothing and no one is sacred in this comic. I think you now see what I mean. There are going to be more shocks. There is going to be more pain. More beloved characters have hard times coming.

Head over to IGN for the full interview.

Rumor: Xbox 720 will allegedly require internet connection to function, could cause potential problems at tournaments

Rumor: Xbox 720 will allegedly require internet connection to function, could cause potential problems at tournaments According to Edge-Online, the Xbox 720 will allegedly require an internet connection to function. While we do not have an official word, a ton of information has been leaking for the upcoming console from it's 50 GB Blu-ray discs to the console's hardware specs.

If this is true, it is likely we won't see many tournaments being ran on Microsoft's new console as an internet connection to a large number of consoles could potentially be impossible, even if ran wirelessly. Too many consoles on a single internet connection would cause internet connectivity issues which would render the console useless.

Obviously, these are rumors and the exact details could be off. Let us know your thoughts on the topic in the comment section below.

Green Arrow's different projectile information, alternate costume - Injustice: Gods Among Us

Maxwell McGee over on GameSpot was able to spend some time with NetherRealm Studios' Hector Sanchez to discuss about some of the game's finer details.

In particular, he was able to get information about Green Arrow's different projectile arrows. Including how many of each arrow he has to start.

Standard Arrow: These arrows are easy to use but deal low damage. As with the other arrow types, you can charge these projectiles by holding the trait button and still move around while doing so.
Starting count: unlimited

Stun Arrow: These arrows temporarily disable opponents, letting you link together combos that would otherwise be impossible. Sanchez recommends them for pro players who can make the most of Green Arrow's other techniques.
Starting count: 2

Ice Arrow: These arrows are basically a supercharged version of the stun arrows. The freezing effect holds opponents in place longer, though a low capacity makes them more costly to waste.
Starting count: 1

Fire Arrow: These arrows deal extra damage on contact over time. Sanchez recommends the fire arrows when you're first learning this character, because they deal good damage even when blocked and can be fired with minimum effort.
Starting count: 3

Additionally, an image of Green Arrow's alternate costume has been found. This is taken from the current live-action TV show "Arrow."
