Pro tip: Marvel vs. Capcom secret characters part three

It's that time again! Time to discuss the ridiculously convoluted sequence required to play as another of the hidden characters in the arcade version of Marvel vs. Capcom.

First, move your cursor to Zangief and move the joystick in the following directions:

Left, Left, Down, Down, Right, Right, Down, Down, Left, Left, Up, Up, Up, Up, Right, Right, Left, Left, Down, Down, Down, Down, Right, Right, Up, Up, Left, Left, Down, Down, Right, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up, Up

Done right, your cursor should go off the top of the Selection Grid and you'll get to choose the Gold War Machine

You can try to remember the sequence by reducing it to a pattern, which looks something like this

Gold War Machine has a really terrible jump and can't block, so he's a little difficult to get a handle on

But he is pretty strong and has a couple of decent special moves to help him out

Which means he's not really for novices, more like pros...
