To celebrate both the release of Super Street Fighter IV and the forthcoming EVO APAC in Sydney, OzHadou is co-ordinating one of the largest tournament series ever attempted within Australia. The series is called OzHadou APAC, and will provide players throughout the APAC region a chance to qualify for SSF4 at EVO APAC in adavance.
Info is starting to come in about the latest version of KoF, after a preview event in Akihabara. For those wanting to know what has changed since XII, keep reading. It seems to be shaping up nicely.
So Jack and I were fortunate to be invited to Gamespot to have a test of Super Street Fighter 4 earlier this week and give a quick review of our opinions on the game. Pardon the scrubby gameplay, we were too excited to do anything properly :P. Also huge thanks to Randy and Dan for the invites and shameless Ozhadou plugs!!

No doubt most of you have seen Majestros’ TACVs lately, and probably a few other combovids that have similar disclaimers regarding the use of programmable controllers, macros, scripts, and so on. This is just a short guide to one method of tool assistance that’s really easy to use.
Just a quick link to Seth and Randolf featuring some Hakan for those of you who can’t get enough oil! Seth goes through Hakan’s special moves, a little bit on how he plays as a character and few of his tools he will use in the game.
The vid is split into two parts below:

The front page of Shoryuken now includes a number of excellent Strategy Corner articles. A recent highlight of this series is A Quick Guide to Reaction-Based Defense by Thelo, a Canadian HDR player who made top 8 at EVO2009 and mains E.Honda.
As someone who’s playstyle favours the “down-back” position, I found this to be an excellent discussion of the difference between reaction and prediction in fighting games. Even if you prefer an offensive style of play, it helps to understand how to attack to minimise your exposure to reaction-based defense.
Shadowloo.com got to hit up Seth Killian with some questions we may not have heard before. It’s a really good read, including some specific questions relating to Australians. Be sure to check it out at their site. Thanks EXC355UM for the heads up!
