14 page Marvel vs. Capcom 3 preview from 1Up 1Up.com has a 14 page preview of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, written by IPlayWinner's Haunts. This is a great piece, as it's coming from the perspective of someone who knows fighting games really well, not a casual fan.

The story not only covers the core gameplay elements, but also runs through the characters too and has movie clips to go along with it. Definitely something you should check out. Here's a grab.

Using Assists: Assists are another crucial element of playing MVC3. When choosing a team, try to think about what areas of the screen you're trying to cover, and basically how each character can complement the others. For example, I found Super-Skrull, Chun-Li, and Iron Man to all have pretty solid assists that work well with most teams.

Push Block: In MVC3, while blocking, press A B C simultaneously to create some space between you and the opponent. This is called a Push Block, and is a crucial technique to get down so you aren't completely overwhelmed by attacks when playing aggressive players. Be careful though! If the opponent knows you're trying to push them back out, they can stagger their block strings, catch you trying to push block and punish with a big combo.
