Street Fighter X Tekken Signature Series Guide : Brady Games

Anyone know who the authors of this are? I have seen / heard that the Ultimate Marvel Bible was really good and want to get this but I want to ensure that it will have the same quality as the Marvel one.

    I'm not sure, but I would be shocked if it wasn't high quality. Brady Games knew they knocked it out of the park with the original MvC3 guide, and they made sure to follow it up even better with the Ultimate guide. There's no way in my opinion they drop the ball on SFxT, especially knowing how much the hardcore fanbase appreciated their efforts. Mine is pre-ordered.

    it depends, not everything bradygames do is gold...actually their SSFIV guide wasn't that good~

    the marvel ones were though because of the people who wrote it, i don't know who is doing the guide, however i dont think they are going to go back to what they used to do, considering how well their MVC3 guides sold. we'll know more about the guide upon release(i still pre-ordered mines just in case). its rather cheap too considering how much i spend for the SCV, and FFXIII/-2 guides(but all those books are worth the $$$) so even if its just for frame data, i think its worth checking out.

    In ShadyK's Cross Assault audition video, he said Clockw0rk was not allowed to audition. So I think Clockw0rk is working on the guide, which means Campbell Tran and the others should be as well.

    I was just about to make this thread, I was curious as to who would write this. Hopefully it's on the same calibre as the MvC3/UMvC3 guides.

    I really hope this is at least on par with the marvel guides. Those were amazing.

    They have an image of the front cover on http://www.thehut.com/books/street-fighter-x-tekken-strategy-guide/10587278.html and it's some of the same folks as the marvel guide. not all of them though

    the marvel guide was useless as soon as the first patch came out.

    I don't where you got that information from, but the marvel guide didn't become useless after the first patch the only thing that changed was sentinel's hit point value everything else remained the same.
  • ViddVidd Joined: Posts: 524
    I've already ordered it but I wonder if we'll get a sneak-peak soon. I'll bet it'll make trying out various characters a lot easier.

    Yeah the guide was even ahead of the playerbase for a lot of characters (and not so much for others...), like saying Dante's hammer was ridiculously good and should be abused with it's invincibility, which people didn't start doing until later. It also mentioned tron's assist as godlike etc.
    I won't be picking the guide up because I'm not really into this game, but if they keep the same quality as the MvC3 ones it's definetly a must have for anyone playing SFxT.

    You should have read the patch notes man.
    "Defeat is a state of mind. No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as reality. To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary, and its punishment is but an urge for me to greater effort to achieve my goal. Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; it is a path leading to success and truth." ~ Bruce Lee

    You can read a few names in the corner using the zoom-in tool.

    Joe Epstein, Daniel Maniago (clock), Logan Sharp, and Josh Richardson. No buktooth.

    Clock was one of the ones involved in making the guide according to the cross assault stream, so get it.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. Most of the people who worked on OG MvC3 and UMvC3 returned for SFxT. Unfortunately, circumstances kept some out of this go-round. That said, I really don't think you'll be disappointed. The SFxT guide is like the OG MvC3 guide -- it's a thorough, 400 page examination of a new game. It includes full frame data and a thorough look at every non-exclusive launch character by dudes who have played a whole helluva lot of these games.

    The Super Street Fighter IV guide wasn't very good because the guide was published by Prima in which we know that every guide that Prima printed had a ridiculous amount of errors.

    This might be the first FG guide I pick up. I wasn't a Marvel player but I browsed the Marvel book and it looked amazing. Hopefully I can pick it up locally, since getting stuff shipped to Canada from US websites usually isn't worth the hassle + time + shipping costs. :(

    wish people would stop calling guides "bibles" it's fucking insulting. It's a book that teaches you the basics of a game, and poorly at that 9/10.

    Alright here it is

    Street Fighter x Tekken "Master guide" by Tristar books. Not sure why they didn't go with Enterbrain/Arcadia... since their AE mook was pretty good with some hit box information and what not.

    yeah that was one of the biggest things they missed. they knew about the Sentinel health change before launch but not until after the guide deadline. if anyone is interested in hearing more I would recommend listening to this: http://shoryuken.com/2011/12/14/wakeup-shoryuken-e082-clockw0rk-and-drdeelite-dm-brandon/

    I somehow missed this podcast when it came out, but after listening to this, I have gained 1000x more respect for Clockwork and Dr. Deelite, and I'm definitely going to pick up the SFxT guide, if nothing else than to just support these guys.

    This podcast makes me wish I had 2 hours to talk with them and pick their brains about all sorts of topics, lol.

    My boy told me that stores in the midwest didn't get them today but will have them by saturday at the latest, idk about other regions though.

    He said they fucked up on the computers and had the date earlier then they actually had trucks coming in.
  • Dr. DeeliteDr. Deelite Joined: Posts: 349
    GS lists stuff early, especially guides, all the time. Those dates are put into a database months in advance and just sit there. I wouldn't expect it early (we worked too down to the wire for that) but it should be on time.

    I'm hoping the Amazon orders are actually timely this time, still not sure what happened with that on Ultimate. I've ordered my own day 1 copy through Amazon just to see what happens this time. XD
  • otoriotori RTSD Joined: Posts: 6,093 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'd like to suggest that an e-version of these guides is sold. Importing the mvc3 ones cost me quite a bit of money and this way I'm sure the guide would reach a much bigger customer base (europe, australia, other continents, etc).
  • entrerixentrerix legendary buster wolf Joined: Posts: 1,305 ✭✭✭
    an e-version would get pirated so fast... i don't think it would make as much money as it lost in sales of the hardcopy.

    maybe if they released the e-version a month after the regular one?

    I pre-ordered the guide. I like fighting game guides. Frame data and attack data help me out with matchups, thats normally what i use these guides for. Plus many come with good starter combos and strategies to get you right up to competitive speed within a couple of hours with a character without the need to muddle through srk.
