Today’s show is bursting with goodness — we welcome back Seth Killian, Capcom’s Special Combat Advisor, to walk us through the many enhancements of Street Fighter x Tekken for PS Vita (including much-requested PS3 crossplay support). Seth also dishes on the rest of Capcom‘s 2012 and 2013 lineup, including Devil May Cry, Resident Evil 6, and Lost Planet 3.

We also welcome special guest and PlayStation.Blog correspondent Andy Burt, who talks about his experiences at Namco Bandai‘s recent Gamer’s Day — and that means a heaping helping of new Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch details.

Today’s show is heavy on game talk, with rowdy discussions centering on Resistance: Burning Skies multiplayer, Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection, Dragon’s Dogma, DUST 514 and more. Listen up and let us know what you think!

    Did you guys ask why Capcom’s Vita support is just 2 late fighting game ports no one wants when their 3DS support has been 1 crazy Japan-only game, 1 mainline Resident Evil, 1 spinoff Resident Evil, a late fighting game port, MegaMan Legends 3 (RIP), Monster Hunter Tri G, and Monster Hunter 4?

    Awesome but isn’t BF3 already on the PS Store or is that just EU? Any word on the Size?

    Also IDK if you guys know this or it’s suppose to be, but the main article loops to the itunes when accessing from the front page

    Next week’s Vita update is very disconcerting, lol.

    How does the aiming feel on resistance? I felt that Uncharted Ga was sluggish when aiming. Hows the hit detection in team death match? does it take a ton of bullets or just a few to down a foe. Does the frame rate stay stable if everyone in middle of a map clipping each other? And im wondering if you guys heard anything about a release date for Retro city rampage besides it coming in may some time.

    If you had to choose between Ultimate Marvel and Tekken on the PS Vita, which would you rather play? I am on a tight budget!

    Fix the “Top story” link. It redirects you ton itunes instead of here. Yesterday happened the same with another article…

    Someone actually hasn’t played MGS3? Easily the best in the series, only tied with MGS1. Better than MGS4 by leaps and strides.

    @GangstaTroy I had attended the Resistance Burning Skies meet up in San Francisco the other day, and I must say, Resistance felt pretty nice for a FPS on a handheld. It takes a bit of practice to get used to the aiming.

    Double tapping the back didn’t feel right to sprint, but they had the option to use the down button the the D-pad.
    One thing I didn’t like was how you throw grenades. You had to touch the grenade icon on the screen, and drag it to the area you wanted to throw it. It didn’t feel right. I wasn’t sure if there was an option to throw grenades a different way.

    Game was fun though, and I’m glad I had attended the event. I won a copy of the game and might get it before launch. I’m excited to play it.

    I even got to try out the Mortal Kombat demo they had on one of the vitas. It ran smoothly.

    Didn’t Telltale say The Walking Dead game was coming this month? Guess it isn’t. Too bad because there is plenty of other stuff I plan on buying next month.

    Thats good to hear sticky I been interested in MK as well.

    More to do with the website, but what’s the chance increasing the width of these background images? Browsing the site on a 1080p or higher monitor/TV drives my OCDness crazy every time I come here :(

    So Jeff, what happened the addition PSP games that were supposed to be added to the Vita? As you said in bold on February 9th, “more PSP titles will be made available for PS Vita play in the coming weeks.” Well, we’re well past the “coming weeks” point and into months now. It’s annoying to know that a lot of PSP games simply can’t be moved, not because the PSV’s emulator can’t play them as we know they can because other regions have access to them or some could be moved through the PS3 but because they’re not seen by the PITA that is Content Manager they’re unusable. Take for example Ys I&II which could be moved from PS3 to Vita if you bought it before the game’s price update, after that the store ID apparently changed you’re out of luck..

    I know you’re just a PR guy and have no control over what actually happens but an update would be nice.


    + C_Y_P_H_E_R on April 21st, 2012 at 1:30 am said:

    Yeah I want to know a release date for The Walking Dead game as well. Tell Tale Games is awesome. That will sell well.

    I noticed you guys spoke a bit about “the gamification of fitness.” while I’m sure the Nike bracelet is neat and all…why not check out the real deal for free? Go to fitocracy.com and try it out. It’s no longer in beta and totally free to be a member. It treats fitness like an RPG. You upload your workouts and gets points, complete achievements, explore new workouts via “quests”, compete in challenges, and all supported with a wicked cool community. Great social networking aspect as well.
