Community member, Peter Livingston aka ETEP1, has been working on a documentary for nearly the past year. Since he started, he has been funding the entire project out of his own, as well as his partners, pocket. Funds are running low, and they need a little help in order to continue at the pace they’re going. This documentary follows three players in the fighting game community, Ryan ‘Filipino Champ’ Ramirez, Abraham ‘Neo’ Sotelo and Harrison Young during Evo 2011 and Evo 2012 plus a ton of things in between including SBO.
Their kickstarter page is now accepting donations. You can also help out by spreading the word if you can’t help out financially. Those who donate will receive love and other junk from Peter and his crew, but the love is all that matters.
Haunts, who is the founder of iPlayWinner, has been one of the major players in the streaming community. IPW has been the longest running streaming provider for the fighting game scene. Haunts was kind enough to take time off his busy schedule to do an interview with me. We go into his history and the history of IPW, and it’s pretty interesting.
The longest running fighting game tournament is going on right now, and is being streamed by TeamSp00ky. Check out the stream for some SF4, MvC3 and more. FRXIV is part of the Evolution Tournament Season.
Capcom Japan Tweeted this earlier “Announcement of two new characters on the stage Mabukapu event!! MARVEL character “X-23″ and CAPCOM character, “Tron”!!
While its still too early to call her a clone (gameplay wise), that is basically what X-23 is. A Wolverine Clone. Hopefully she plays nothing like him.
Unity just announced they’re holding a Fight Club event for Marvel vs Capcom 3 on September 22. This will be held after Tokyo Game Show, so there’s a very good chance this will be the same build that will be shown at TGS. We’ll keep you updated as news roles in.
Thanks to Doom for pointing out this info. A post on the shoryuken.com forums has some new info and pics from a Japanese magazine, where Nitsuma-san discusses the Fantastic 4 characters that will be in MvC3, Dr Doom, Super Skrull, and Silver Surfer, who he says will be showed off more soon.

As the doors in the West hall of the LA Convention Center open, E3-goers are greeted by these words “Bang…bang, bang, bang…bang, bang, bang” a game none of us thought would ever see the light of day is taking up a bulk of the Capcom booth. Deadpool might sound like an odd person to be greeting fans, but he had some help in Dante (DMC) and Chris (RE) who were also by his side in to help Capcom steal the show. Three new characters, a revamped fighting engine, button scheme and a whole new graphic style to bring one of the greatest fighting game series back into the lime light.
Accompanying MvC3, was a modest line up of games:
Kiets over at SRK had a chance to demo MvC3′s system during E3. It’s very informative for those who want to know what’s going on with the game.
