New costume packs, gems, and colors coming soon, also patch fixes and tournament support for gem selection.
On April 3, we will see the free color packs as DLC. This will add some new colors to the customize colors palette. I still have no idea why this is DLC and not just turned on from the beginning. At the same time new "swap" costumes will be introduced. For a buck each you can see your favorite SF character dressed as a Tekken character or vice-versa. If you want the whole set, you can buy the full SF set for $13 and the full Tekken set for $13, for a total of $26. That's one expensive costume pack! (These are just alternate outfits, not new characters)
Shortly after April 3 (no exact date) there will be a tournament support update. This will be a title update not DLC, so you'll get this automatically. This update includes some fixes to the online code (audio issues, etc) and a way to choose your gem set from the character selection menu.
A few weeks later, another title update will include new gems, more slots to store your favorite gem sets, and a replay analyzer.
Finally, soon after the PS Vita version of SFxT ships, the 12 new characters will be available as paid DLC for $20 (1600 MSP). The new characters are: Blanka, Sakura, Guy, Cody, Elena, Dudley, Alisa, Bryan, Christie, Jack, Lars and Lei.
The summary from Capcom:
Nine new gem packs totaling 60+ new gems
Tournament support for gem selection
Three new quick combo pre-sets
Three additional gem loadout slots
Three new color packs with four colors each
Swap Costumes - $1.00 (80 MSP) each or in two $13.00 (1040 MSP) Street Fighter and/or Tekken packs
DLC characters - $20.00 (1600 MSP) for all 12 new fighters
Watch me get destroyed online. Watch how broken the online is. It'll be patched soon. Something is definitely wrong with the sound. A quick look at the generic team story lines. King trials. Poison's wonderful man breasts. Shout out to Capcom!
I've played the Street Fighter X Tekken since I made the video above. I'm enjoying it. I'm learning a lot with Hugo and King. I really like King. Some of the moves in the game are very unique. King has up forward and M for like a rising knee kick. It's pretty sweet and it chains four times in a 6 hit combo. Hugo has down, neutral, down and M for a rising knee. Yeah, I love it.
Keep an eye on the live stream twitch.tv/goukijones for a lot of training and special events this week.

Take a look at the Reviewer's Guide, a fact sheet and both Xbox 360 & PS3 versions of the game. Watch later today on the stream twitch.tv/goukijones. Follow our exclusive coverage on Gouki.com.
That Gouki statue is mine. I just threw it there for the Jimmys.
FnJimmy kept saying he was going to use Ryu and Jill.
"Jill?" I asked. "Who the fuck is that?"
"You know the indian chicks' daughter." He would explain.
It's Julia ya fuckin' Jimmy! And good luck with that move set. You've been using Ryu for 25 years and still can't chain crouching forward into a fireball. Sorry about the Jimmy rant.Read full story...
It's that time again for another episode of CROSS ASSAULT! :)

One of them is a trap. the other... well he uses a sword and has way too many costume changes. Find out why I would use these two as a team.
Once again, I managed to find another possible team to use. This time, I'll be talking about these two particular fighters:
Poison from Final Fight & Yoshimitsu from TekkenRead full story...

Prepare to die 1,000 deaths, as I unleash my team upon the fighting world.
My Team for Street Fighter X Tekken, couples two of the most powerful, most brutal, and most sinister characters of all time.
From The Tekken side, comes Kazuya Mishima. A formidable fighter, always locked into "mortal combat" with his Father and his Son. Kazuya unleashes brutal combos and "electrifying" power. But his true power, lies within. Once an uncontrollable beast, Kazuya can now call upon the power of his evil gene. When the Devil is unleashed no one is safe. Multiplying Kazuya's strength and gaining new abilities, this monstrocity will destroy all...but his partner, may also be his ultimate rival.
From The Street Fighter side, comes The Raging Demon himself, Akuma (or Gouki). Hands down the most powerful entity in the Street Fighter universe. He has broken men physically, emotionally and mentally. No one can stop his power. He is a titan of all fighting games, rivaling such bosses as Shao Kahn (MK). His special moves are uncanny in there force.
Can these two Demons of Fighting be stopped? the answer is quite simple...

Akuma and Heihachi make plans to kick ass. Whether it be each other's ass or the rest of the Street Fighter X Tekken roster is still undecided.
Street Fighter X Tekken is a game I never thought I'd ever see (in an official capacity anyway). There's no denying that I've always wondered what it would be like if Akuma and Heihachi met. What's most intriguing to me about the pairing of Akuma and Heihachi is how different and similar they are. Sure Heihachi may look silly (see below) and love to make himself laugh, but he's just as much the power hungry remoreless ass kicker that Akuma is. We're talking about someone who threw his own son over a cliff just because he didn't want a pansy for a son. (I still question why he adopted Lee, but that is neither here nor there.)
Akuma lives for the fight and he just doesn't have a rat's ass to give if you have a problem with it. That includes his master and his brother. Akuma beatdown Gouken so bad this fool was in a coma until Ryu grew up. I'd love to see Oni Akuma taunting Heihachi because he can't seem to get the devil gene away from Kazuya and Jin. What would be even better is if Akuma helped the king of iron fist learn some dark hadou.
Regardless of what the outcome of their initial meeting is, one would be hard-pressed denying what their combined efforts could accomplish. They would totally be The Iron Fists of Death.
R.I.P. Gouri Daisuke. You were the one and only voice of Heihachi and Edgemaster.

This is my entry for the Street Fighter x Tekken giveaway.
Bob is currently my Tekken main and I want to pick him up again due to what DMG|Kor has been showing off on Cross Assault. Once he was announced, it made me happy and I had a feeling I would play him. He is probably one of the only Tekken guys I will play, other than Law. But I would have a lot of fun playing as him and enjoy abusing this speedy tubby. >:]
Ken Masters is my first legit main in Street Fighter and I want to play him again. Yeah, yeah, yeah... I know everyone plays Ken at some point or another and he looks really cheap in what has been shown of SFxT... But I don't care since I never pay attention to tiers anyways. So... Regardless, I'm going to play as him and definitely have fun doing so.
"Team Ken Masters" is definitely going to be my main team! Remember according to Rufus in the SFxT video, Bob is "Ken Masters". This is why I dubbed the team, "Team Ken Masters" haha!
I want the free game. Here's 2 great characters. And why they are awesome.
Well first off when I see the game I would just play this game strictly for fun. As the learning curve while it doesn't look steep finding the team synergy would be a pain in the butt. Judging from what I've seen and that isn't much. Seems everyone is afraid to use Tekken characters. Well to take the best of both worlds from what I know. Why not Abel and Hwoarang?
Starting with Hwoarang . While's he's no Baek Doo San. At least Baek taught this guy how to fight so the guy has something going for him. From what I remember about the Tae Kwon Do student he does have some nice and easy launchers back there in Tekken. Along with some easy combos. And he does have my favorite move "Hunting Hawk" I believe its called. Where he kicks you in the air twice and the 3rd kick knocks you down. While looking cool with that he obviously has some easy synergy so why not go to the other character.
Abel...also known as the untapped potential in my book when SF4 was released (next to Twins 2.0 AKA Rufus). Dude has some impressive throws and easy chains (or rekkas...rekkas being move 1, move 2, move 3, etc. in a simple chain). This guy is just scary to face especially online with an easy anti-air and easy command throws. I loved using this guy back in SF4. Even if throws are now lowered in priority he's still a good character. Not to mention his easy chain specials and a dodge roll as I would call it. No doubt this guy can be a good partner for Hwoarang and vice versa.

Once again, I've come up with another potential team for the game. Read on to find out why I want to use this team.
After rummaging through the roster, I Just so happened to find myself another possible team to use. This time, I'll be talking about these two:
Juri Han from Super Street Fighter IV & Hwoarang from TekkenRead full story...

My ideal team ^^ Updated for a better entry ^^
My ideal team would be Hwoarang and Ibuki here is my reasoning.
Surface level I have only used Hwoarang on Tekken and Ibuki is one of my favorite characters of the SF series.
But here is another reason ^^ I am a Korean American married to a Japanese woman. Our countries had a pretty dark past but there is now many reasons for reconciliation and also cooperation. This two person group reminds me of my family and hopefully they can work together to make an awesome comboing team ^^
Update with the history of Korean characters in fighting games.
This is important to me because I am a Korean American and if you have met any Korean or Korean Americans you will have noticed that we are very prideful of our country. Historically one of the reasons we are this way is because we are a small country surrounded by bigger countries and we have been constantly attacked. Most of the time we have stood our ground. This sort of explains why I am drawn to Korean characters especially if they appear in Japanese video games. So here we go.
From my knowledge the earliest Korean fighter is Kim Kaphwan of the Fatal Fury and King of Fighter series.
A very typical character and if you see some of Hwaorangs moves in this game they actually feel very Kim Kaphwan ish. The earliest 3D fighting character is probably Baek Doosan of Tekken 2. Hwaorang is actually his disciple.
I actually like Paek Doosan a little better than Hwaorang, Hwaorang looks a bit like a punk ^^ and Paek Doosan is a name of a famous mountain in Korea.
I hope someone can correct me if I am wrong but these are the major Korean fighters in any fighting game. King of Fighters had a Korean team but I don't think they were that popular. This is why I was very happy to see Capcom put Juri in their Street Fighter series.
Now Juri I feel is pretty cool because not only is she Korean, but she breaks the typical idea by being a female, being evil, a little crazy, and having a cybernetic eye ^^ I commend Capcom for doing something like that!
Anyways. Thanks for reading guys! And my team remains Hwoarang and Ibuki FTW!!!!
Thanks for checking this out ^^
