Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition

Evo2k11: Street Fighter 4's twins are about to get nerfed

7:40 PM on 07.30.2011 // Jonathan Holmes

According to our man at EVO2K11 Jesse Cortez, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has just announced that Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will be getting a full rebalancing update later this year. Ono-San felt so badly about the game's balancing issues that he convinced Capcom to give this rebalance project a relatively large budget, which includes money to be put towards playtesting in Japanese arcades before the update hits consoles. Ono-San also formally apologized to the attendees of EVO for the game's unbalanced roster, bowing with his trademark Blanka toy, before giving every attendee of the tournament a free copy of SSFIV:AE on PC.

Specific details on the update are currently unclear, but one thing we know for sure is that "the twins" Yun and Yang are going to take a noticeable hit. These cripplingly overpowered characters are the #1 complaint amongst SSFIV:AE haters, so it makes sense that Capcom has chosen to soften them up a bit.

No word yet on if this update will be mandatory for online play (though it probably will be), or what other changes Capcom has in mind for the game. Stay tuned for more on this and other burning hot EVO2K11 stories here on Destructoid.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.
