This past weekend, James Chen and I were given the opportunity to play with the new Ultra Street Fighter 4 character, Decapre, in order to be able to commentate the match that Combofiend played with her at the end of Final Round.

March 22, 2013 | 10 Comments

In case you haven’t seen recently, Capcom has announced (via the ever so charasmatic Combofiend) that they are planning to create a new balance patch to Super Street Fighter IV: AE 2012.  And this time, they are taking user feedback on how to tweak the characters.  While taking user feedback is a dangerous prospect, I’m...
