Gamestop Local Tournaments

3/22/2012 9:01 am - PlayingToW1N2 comments
If you are not traveling to MLG or NorCal Regionals this weekend, there are a few gamestop stores that are hosting sfxt tournaments.  I believe the entry is free and the prizes are not very good.  However, it is a chance to compete. ALSO, YOU MUST SIGN UP IN ADVANCE IN PERSON AT THE STORE YOU WISH TO PLAY AT.

Update:  I called almost every store and met a lot of friction.  A few stores said that we needed to sign up in person and there was a chance that it may be canceled.  However, the Macedonia store run by Josh Weigland, is running it on 360 and allowing the using of fight sticks.   I would encourage you to head to his store.  Also, you do not need to sign up in person and can show up on Saturday.  Personally, I see this as an opportunity to compete and don't really care about the prizes.  Hope to see you there.   

Click the link for more details. All tournaments will be this Saturday, March 24th, at 2pm. ...

PS3 vs 360

3/10/2012 3:22 pm - PlayingToW1N1 comments
Euro Gamer recently posted an article comparing SFxT's performance on the 360 vs ps3.  Our community technical consultant, Rob Khonsu and i208.net, read it over and have a few things to say about it.  Here is an sample:  " The major difference between the two versions again is V-Sync. Meaning that if the entire frame is not done by the time it needs to be shown the 360 will just show what it has (screen tearing) and the PS3 will just trash the frame  and move onto the next. As consistent with past Capcom games it seems to offer a much better experience on the Xbox 360. " Follow the link for the full write up.

SFxT: Save Scumming our Bank Accounts

3/5/2012 10:47 am - FreeSuper comments
As an old salty man in the world of videogames. I've had slight suspicion when on the debut of this Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom began heavily promoting the PS3 version of the game with near no attention being paid to the x360. Capcom is so sleazy it is nothing less than genius, this statement is right from their own blog.

Fortunately (or not so), Capcom has finally confirmed that all the DLC content that we will be paying for in the future is already on the retail disc! On top of it all Sony awarded Capcom an enormous MoneyHat in order to make their systems have exclusivity of the extra DOZEN characters locked away exclusively for their Vita platform. Do know that the Sony Vita is a handheld game system that no respectable player is able to use for competitve play. For the next six months, a full quarter of the cast is locked way with no way to access them through not-so nefarious means. The gimmick behind the Vita exclusivity is that if you buy the Vita version, they al...

The Crass Assault Show

2/28/2012 6:54 pm - FreeSuper1 comments
Giant Bomb has a pretty good summary of the debacle that is happening in regards to this Cross Assault reality show that is supposed to showcase both Capcom's new fighting game and the spirit of the community surrounding it.

It's a total quagmire.

It's also really disturbing how much Capcom waited to act upon learning of the happenings of the reality show they are sponsoring.
For those that want to see some of the highlights regarding what led up to the incident there is a link to a video at the end of this article. Keep in mind that the video only highlights Day One.

When I was in community college, we got a talk from an assistant director on a bunch of reality shows regarding the production of them and how they manage everything. One of the least mentioned facts about their production is that they have a veritable army of behind the scenes people for contestant welfare. Reality shows can really screw with peoples' minds. Tempers flare and ...
