Hear ye, hear ye! Did you know SFxT is on sale for $10.20 (66% off the normal price of $29.99) or the complete pack for 20.39 (66% off the complete pack price of $59.99) until September 30th at 10am PST? In addition to receiving all 55 characters and all Street Fighter and Tekken characters swap costumes, Steam is also upping the anty by adding in trading cards.
Now you're probably asking, "Combofiend, who's on these cards?" To which I reply, "Calm your jets, let me get to that." There are a total of 10 cards, containing the likes of Xiaoyou, Ogre, Akuma, Yoshimitsu, Heihachi, Cammy, Chun-Li, Ryu, Ken, and Kazuya.
Just a taste of the collection!
So not only do you get a kick-ass game, you also get SFxT related cards, emoticons and special profile backgrounds all included in your purchase. If you haven't played SFxT or have been waiting for a time to scoop the game up, you should get it now before the deal ends!
Street Fighter x Tekken is the ultimate fighting game experience. Starting this Thursday at 10AM, the base price has been permanently dropped AND the entire catalog is 66% off. Street Fighter X Tekken has never been offered at a lower price!
Current owners of the game can also now earn Steam Trading Cards for Street Fighter X Tekken.
It's a move you'd only see in fan fiction or mods for the PC version of Street Fighter, so... the fact this is a mod for the PC version of Street Fighter x Tekken probably explains things.
It's just one of a series of great mods that have been under the spotlight this past week, some for SFxT, others for Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. In the gallery above you'll see other examples, like Dr. Doom replacing Sagat and Shinobi replacing Ken.
Some things are better when combined. A cup of tea is infinitely improved by the addition of a rich tea biscuit, leftover Chinese takeaway boxes are immensely enhanced when introduced to a bin... I should probably stop just listing things around my desk. Still, it follows that when you mash-up Mega Man and Street Fighter - both games that I'm rubbish at - the resulting fusion will be so hard, I'll not get past the first screen. For fans of either series, though, this Capcom-blessed fan project celebrating their 25th anniversaries is now released and kicking players' asses.
As in other Mega Man games, you can pick the order you in which you face each boss. This time, however, it's not robots you're fighting, but instead the roster of the Street Fighter games, complete with their own themed stages leading up to each encounter.
It's expectedly tricky and clearly lovingly made, deftly blending both games and backed by an original, but era appropriate soundtrack. You can download Street Fighter x Mega Man for free at Capcom's website.
The long awaited dream match-up between the two titans of fighting is here! Street Fighter® X Tekken® is the ultimate tag team fighting game, featuring one of the most expansive rosters of iconic fighters in fighting game history. The critically acclaimed Street Fighter® IV game engine has been refined with new features including simultaneous 4-player fighting, a power-up Gem system, Pandora Mode, Cross Assault and more. Street Fighter and Tekken players alike will cross the line in this revolutionary battle!
OMFG, you guys are not going to believe what Street Fighter X Tekken has in store for you with its 2013 Version. New characters? Alternate costumes? A bunch of shit already locked on the disc? Nope, nope, and nope.
Get ready because you will be able to initiate unobscured combat 0.666666666667 seconds faster once the 2013 Version arrives. That's right, the "FIGHT!" command is gonna get the hell out of the way that much more quickly. Oh guess what else? Close-ups are eliminated to speed up battles and for easier combo timing! I know, right?
[CORRECTION] This video runs at 29.97 frames per second, which means the graphic gets the hell out of the way 0.667334 seconds faster.
Now hold on, let's slow down. Specifically we mean let's slow down recoverable health, because it's gonna take twice as long to regenerate one... thing of health (look at that grid at 0:50. I mean, look at it! It takes, hell, I don't know, twice as long to recover health?) But hey, FOOLED YOU because slowing this down means they're actually SPEEDING the tempo of the game up.
What else? Well Angel Knee Ascension can be jump canceled for new combo possibilities! Shippu Jinraikyaku range and damage increased! EX Kunai now cancels into itself! Goddamn! My nipples are hard!
See for yourself in that five-minute video jampacked with minute details. Hot damn, this is going to be the most fine-tuned Street Fighter X Tekken ever. Oh yeah, this is a title update, which means the thing is free when it arrives Jan. 29.
