Capcom has released a new video about Street Fighter V today and it explains the new V-Gauge and V-Skill mechanic.
According to the latest issue of ShortList.com‘s gaming magazine, as you take damage during a match the V-Gauge fills. Using some of your V-Gauge, you can do special moves like the double fireball Chun-li throws in previous videos.
We’ve also learned about the new V-SKill mechanic. This is more of a defensive mechanic that allows certain characters to parry, deflect projectiles.
Special moves have also gotten a name change. Called Ultras in SFIV, in SFV they are called Critical Arts. These special moves are activated by a full EX gauge and are still the flashy, dynamic camera, multi-hit combo moves that we all know and love.
Last but not least, 2 new stages are now known: China and London’s King Cross Station. King’s Cross Station can be seen in a flurry of beautiful new screen shots after the jump.
Street Fighter V arrives on PC and PS4 March 2016

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. The NBA Finals + social life + School starting back and it’s all got me a bit busy at the moment. I do have some posts planned to be published before the week is over so be on the look out.
The update to the demo was released around 11AM EDT today and it fixes a number of issues. Since the demo has come out, Square listened to what players had to say about it and decided to fix whatever issues we had. They even threw in some new features and added a boss fight.
Coming straight from the Nova Crystallis website, here is a look at the updates:
- Added cooperation attacks that come from ally suggestions.
- Guarding just before being hit by an enemy attack will no longer consume MP.
- Evasive maneuver has been changed into a dodge roll, no longer consumes MP, and can be shifted into from various actions.
- Moving the left stick during a consecutive attack will change the attack movement.
- You can now charge great sword attacks by holding down the button.
- The Shift (Warp) command has been changed into a long Circle button hold. If you hold Circle for a short period, you’ll perform a mid-range shift.
- The areas you can warp to have been greatly increased.
- Attack power, MP consumption, and more have been adjusted.
- Camera turning speed and acceleration has been improved. The lock-on tracking has been improved, and target-switching has been simplified.
- Camera can now be moved down during combat.
- Party AI has been improved.
- “Individual action quests” that are suggested by party members has been added.
- The Catoblepas by the lake can now be fought.
It’s definitely interesting to see a demo get patched, but it shows that SquareEnix really cares about this game and wants to make it as perfect as they can. The patch is free for everyone that downloaded the demo via their voucher.
There is also a new Final Fantasy Type-0 patch that fixes motion blur and the super fast camera. I’ll definitely be getting back into that one.
Final Fantasy will be skipping E3 this year, but we will hear more about it at Gamescon in August.
I primarily only streamed from my PS4 since it was the only streaming device I had at the moment, so I bought a webcam and a new gaming mouse today. Look out for some PC game streaming in the near future.
By the way, if you’re looking for a new gaming mouse, the Logitec G602 is on sale for $39.99 at Best Buy and on Amazon this week! It’s a pretty great mouse!
Hot on the heels of the latest announcement for Mighty No. 9, Capcom reveals the Mega Man Legacy Collection today.
This enhanced collection will feature Mega Man 1-6 to introduce new players and feed the nostalgia of long time fans. It will also feature a Museum Mode and a Challenge Mode. Channeling straight from the Capcom UK YouTube page, the Challenge Mode remixes gameplay segments from all six games, with plenty of scaling difficulty objectives for experienced players to conquer yet serving as a good starting point for new players, too. Museum Mode contains a comprehensive collection of history, high-res art and original concept pieces – a mega treat for any fan of Mega Man and video game history.
It looks like Capcom hasn’t forgotten about Mega Man. The collection will be available later this summer as a digital download for PS4, Xbox One, and PC and on 3DS this Winter.

I recently found this piece on Tumblr and I just had to save it immediately. It really gets me pumped for the release of The Phantom Pain in a few months. The artist is unknown, but I could really use this in the form of a poster right now.
Its finally here again gamers! It’s the weekend and hopefully you can get plenty of game time in.
I will hopefully be finishing up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt this weekend. This should be the last weekend of it, because I am pretty close to the end. I’m getting anxious to see how it ends.
I will also be fitting in some Heroes of the Storm. If you just so happened to read my first impressions post (you can do so here) then you know that I was hesitant to take my talents online. Well I did 2 days ago and I’m not as bad as I thought I would be! I have at least 5 wins under my belt!
That’s enough about me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend? Share in the comment section below.
Welcome to Geek Dojo Radio. Just about everyday I will share some music I’m currently listing to. Today is Retro by Childish Gambino. Enjoy!
Smosh Ganes YouTube page uploaded it’s latest offering this week and this time it’s Heroes of the Storm.
The theme of these videos is to make fun of a game, but at the same time tell the brutal honest truth in a bit of sarcastic manner. Even if you’re a fan of the game that is being made fun of, most of the time you can’t help but to laugh and agree. Check out the video below.
