Ultra Street Fighter 4 update coming Friday August 8

 

Capcom Japan has announced that an update for Ultra Street Fighter IV is going live tomorrow. The update will address a number of known glitches, issues and inconsistencies that are being experienced by players using a number of different characters. Some issues like Evil Ryu’s EX Hurricane kick not landing consistently on hit and Rolento being able to wall jump without being near a wall have been addressed but there are still issues that will remain after so Capcom could still be looking into issues. Capcom is also releasing a DLC costume pack days after this fix. It seems the support is continuing  so fans should be hopeful for more bug fixes and possibly even balance changes. It may be slightly disappointing that every known glitch isn’t being addressed this time but Capcom is taking a step in the right direction and doesn’t seem to be stopping support for Ultra any time soon.

Twitch is now muting copyrighted audio

Twitch, who recently added a feature that removes infinite storage of archived videos just added another policy that users are not too pleased about. The extremely succesful streaming site has now began muting videos that play any copyrighted audio. A change that Youtube also made last year and what is more than likely the product of Twitch being bought out by Google and Youtube. The policy however is still very flawed it is not only taking down music streamers play over their games but also in-game music that the streamers have no control over. Twitch’s own streams have even been impacted by this policy and sense have been muted.

Kano leaked in Mortal Kombat X

Although Ed Bon has been hinting that the next character reveal for Mortal Kombat X would be at Gamescom later this month it seems that we have gotten our wish a little earlier than expected. German magazine GamePro has screenshots of the latest character who is showing off a flying knee move and has Wrestling stated as one of his variations. Kano is one of the most commonly known and iconic Mortal Kombat characters and he was not confirmed to be dead in the Mortal Kombat 9 storyline so his inclusion is not very surprising but the magazine leak was unexpected.

Nintendo Games That Deserve a Second Life

66836-Super_Smash_Bros._Melee_(Europe)_(En,Fr,De,Es,It)-5

Nintendo has steadily been releasing it’s classic titles since the Wii came out in 2006, and even now with current re-releases such as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64, and Pokemon’s Ruby and Sapphire. It got me thinking about other games I would like to see revived onto a new-gen system.

Here’s some titles that I think deserve a second life:

 

  • Super Smash Bros Melee – Without a doubt the fan favorite of this entire series, I would love to see this available for purchase on the Wii U or 3DS market. I would keep game play and functionality the same, but maybe updated graphics similar to SSBB.
