    Development team confirms two bugs with AE v2012, fixes coming

    Development team confirms two bugs with AE v2012, fixes coming The Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition development team confirmed two glitches with the v2012 update of the title that was released today.

    First off is the Juri warp bug that happens when she performs a close standing medium punch too closely to the opponent and actually passes through them, as shown in this story will be patched out.

    The second happens if you perform a Shoryuken with Ryu (only works with him) on the car bonus stage, he will get stuck.

    Both glitches will be fixed before Capcom Japan's tournament in the Spring on 2012, March 3. Ono also left these notes on Twitter about the problems.

    Hi AE's player, we apologize for the inconvenience about AE2012 patch's some trouble. I'd cope with the issues with utmost effort. Please wait...

    We had found some trouble about AE2012 .We'll be announce ways of coping about it. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience.

    1st new episode of Excellent Adventures of Gootecks and Mike Ross of the year and 1st with AE 2012

    Excellent Adventures returns - New year/new game

    They're back. Gootecks and Mike Ross have returned with another episode of Excellent Adventures, this time picking up Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 to start the new year.


    Gootecks, apparently inspired after returning from Japan, has been putting in work online with Rose. Mike, on the other hand, hasn't played a lot of 2012 due to a red-ringed Xbox. Watch the episode to see how it all unfolds!

    Two hours of ranked matches on Godsgarden TV feat. Naruo's Ryu


    SMOAI2010 made this viewing possible on Youtube. Naruo plays for around two hours, fighting quite a few strong Japanese players and a plethora of matchups.

    Naruo is one of the strongest Ryu players in AE 2012 right now so if you're a Ryu main and you're looking for a representation of his matchup strategies in this game then these videos should be a good start for you.

    Man....Where do I start?

    -Playing ST Friday against Krone for about 10-15 matches (Ryu vs. Fei) and him getting mad cause I would lame out when I had the life lead. LOL
    -Krone really getting into ST bashing the cab buttons almost breaking the cab trying to Rekka and get out of throws. Hilarious getting frustrated playing Arturo.
    -DJ Houshen X-factor and playing KOF tipsy against Banana Ken.
    -Another pop off by Smooth Viper when he beat Noel Brown to take pools (for those who remembers their incident)
    -Having another terrible showing personally
    -Getting two matches on stream (MK and KOF) MK was bad, KOF was decent.
    -Jagerbombs and Fireballs in Big E's penthouse with Justin Wong fucking with the lights.
    -Bloot! Bloot! BLOOOT!!!
    -Yipes knocked the fuck out on the floor Sunday morning. Not sure if he was tired or sick.
    -Krone top 16 match on stream but everyone in the room was watching Justin-Jiron (EMP Jiro) off stream. Jiron took it to match point.
    -Smooth Viper single-handed beating DMV only to get destroyed in less than 3 minutes total in his next matches. Damn we fail.
    -Justin playing scared against the Haggar player on stream. When was the last time we saw that!?
    -The Smooth Viper-DJ ending....Man...We was salty!
    -Chris G losing two majors in a row in the same fashion. Had it in his hands again. Good shit to Justin for his adjustments from the earlier match.

    OVERALL...WinterBrawl was hot shit!
