UltraDavid and James Chen are back with another installment of UltraChen TV’s Tuesday night broadcast. Tonight, they will be discussing a wide variety of topics, including last weekend’s Northeast Championships XIV, Empire Arcadia’s Sanford Kelly and the various exhibitions he took part in, Capcom Cup, recent Youtube developments, and more.
If you’re interested in any of these points of discussion, be sure to tune in and check the show out. The stream will be live in this article, but you can also visit Twitch to join the chat.
The official web site for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Kantai Collection/KanColle online social card game finally launched on December 10. While it doesn't have much information yet, its only page is now featuring the Kanmusu (fleet girl) version of Japanese destroyer Fubuki voiced by Sumire Uesaka (she also voices Soryu, Hiryu, Isonami, Shirayuki, Hatsuyuki, Miyuki, Murakumo).
We can only assume that she may be the main character of the anime series. But the choice has confused the fans, because she has never been the fans' most favorite girl. For example, in the popularity poll conducted at Toranoana Akihabara store in September, she got only two votes from the total 968 votes. The most popular one was Kongou (CV: Nao Touyama) with 85 votes.
While attending Northeast Championships XIV, the folks over at Olympic Gaming took the time to talk to a handful of players and gather their impressions on Ultra Street Fighter IV after the title’s location test this past weekend. Some of the players chosen to provide their thoughts include Smug and Zeus of Team PIE, Yeb, Empire Arcadia’s Tampa Bison, Happy Medicine, PR Balrog of Evil Geniuses, and more.
If you weren’t able to check out the event yourself and are curious what these players think of the changes made to characters like Dudley, Vega, Gen, M. Bison, and Balrog, then give the video below some of your attention. Be aware that some of these interviews were shot in less than ideal locations, so you may have to listen a bit closer to catch it all.

The Bakumatsu-Meiji period in Japan (around 1853-1870) has been used as the theme for many Japanese fictional novels, TV dramas, films, stage plays, manga, anime, and games. MarvelousAQL has posted the first promotional video for the upcoming PSP game Bakumatsu Rock on its official YouTube channel. The rhythm adventure game features popular historical characters in the Bakumatsu era, but this time they play rock music in a band for the revolution. The story revolves around the rock battle between Shinsengumi as the top idols and the patriot samurais including Ryoma Sakamoto (CV: Kisho Taniyama), Shinsaku Takasugi (Tatsuo Suzuki), and Kogoro Katsura (Shotaro Morikubo). The game is slated for the February 27, 2014 release in Japan.
The Hollywood 47 Ronin did not do well in its Japanese opening, taking $1.3 million, as compared to the opening weekend's first place finisher Lupin III vs. Detective Conan's $6.3 million. That wasn't for lack oftrying.
There was plenty of press.

The folks over at VG Bootcamp recently went live with another installment of Smash @ Xanadu from Xanadu Games in Baltimore, Maryland. These weekly broadcasts provide a great look at the region’s Smash community and feature tournaments for three separate titles: Project M (a fan-modded version of Brawl), Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Tonight’s stream, however, will focus mostly on Project M to celebrate the release of version 3.0. Expect to see a ton of casuals as well as both normal and turbo mode tournaments for the popular mod.
