General news roundup: Skullgirls' Fukua now available, King of Fighters 13 100% combos, 14 fancy Pandora combos in SFxT and more

Quite a bit of news/tech has been sent to us this past week, so instead of posting a bunch of rapid fire stories, we thought we'd round it all up in one spot for everyone to check out. This week's general roundup features Skullgirls Encore, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters 13, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

First up, Skullgirls Encore added some new content via an automatic update. Players on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC now have full, playable access to Fukua, the Filia clone that was originally intended to merely be an April Fool's joke.

Fukua's story mode has been added, along with two new stages: The Glass Canopy and Nightmare Crest. Several bug fixes and balance changes have also been implemented.

Editor's note: Fukua can be found by moving the cursor to the right of Big Band on the character select screen. Her portrait will not be visible until you hover over her.

Elena's almost unblockable setup in Street Fighter X Tekken, weird glitch results when used with other characters

When using Elena's Heavy Kick Lynx Tail attack in Street Fighter X Tekken, auto-guard doesn't kick in because of a gap in the move.

LordWilliam1234 took advantage of this fact and used to it create a near unblockable setup when Elena is coupled with Abel.

He said that, "You can make it so the opponent pretty much has to just-frame guard in order to block it properly, and even if they do block it, they take normal damage from one of the hits despite the fact that they end in a guard state."

Because of the odd properties of Elena's move, it also causes the game to glitch out a bit when it is performed in conjunction with Nina, Juri and Akuma's overheads, as the character still manages to be hit by one attack, but then they immediately return to a guard state.

This definitely isn't game-breaking, but it's an interesting setup none the less. You'll find both videos after the break.

GamerBee: Street Fighter X Tekken didn't take off because it was the wrong timing, could use a patch

Speaking with Hold Back to Block last month at Winter Brawl 8, AVM|GamerBee expressed some thoughts about Street Fighter X Tekken, and why it didn't take off with the community.

Opinions on the title are fairly polarizing, with some people being huge fans and others hating the game.

GamerBee said that SFxT was "pretty good," but it could use another patch, preferably before the next Capcom Cup in December. He wanted the patch to fix some of the issues the community expressed.

He felt that the game suffered from bad timing, but also noted he no longer plays it anymore.
