"Imoya rumors" , posted Tue 12 Apr 05:29post reply

[RUMORS]. Add "may, should, could be, not confirmed" everywhere.

The 5 new characters in the PS2 version of KOF Nowave are Kusanagai, Rugal, May lee, Angel and Seth.
Which means they are so ashamed of Tetsuo they don't want to see him anymore and that's a good thing. The characters are all copiped from 02, MAX2 included. The guy couldn't see Rugal, though, so we don't know how far he has been toned down.
New art for everyone of course.

The next compilation after KOF Nests hen may be Garô Densetsu 1, 2 and Special, before the end of the year (that's it ? Only those 3 games !? if it's true, you're killing me, Imoya).

Battle Colloseum may also be released before the end of the year on PS2 at least, maybe for christmas.

Around the end of the year, in arcade : KOF 11 (temptative title).

And I may add here as well the rumor of a beta test of SS AW before may, and that it would be made by Yuki.

[/RUMORS]

Good news/rumor for Garou fans (like me)), although it is awkward that Garou3 isn't included, since it wouldn't fit a following Real Bout compilation either. Plus, assuming SNK wouldn't be an ass for once and would add RBS:DM inside that Real Bout compilation, Garou3 inside the first one would ensure four games per compilation:
- GD / GD2 / GDS / GD3
- RB / RBS / RBS:DM /RB2

Well, I can see the relations between Samsupi/ Samurai Spirits and Nejibako/NGBC.
But Imoya/Playmore....?

One of those numerous days when SNK Playmore had done something really stupid (I think it was in relation to KOF Neowave), someone (on 2ch?) called SNK Playmore "Imoya" (芋屋), which roughly translates as "a store that only sells potatoes". In french we'd call that a "marchand de patates". I don't remember if there's a pun or a reference in the nickname, but the analogy is quite funny and revealing by itself anyway.

Iggy mentioned that story on MMC then popularized the nickname, like with "Negibako" and "Nowave".

I think the "imoya" came from the pronounciation of Playmore (Pureimoa) in Japanese, not just out of nowhere. It was later warped to become Imoya because well, pretty much the same reasons you stated.

Wasn't that the story, Iggy?

The Imoya name comes from the days of KOF 2001, and all the hope "SNK is not dead !" that transformed into the "Worst. KOF. Ever" feeling we now all know and love.

Playmore→プレイモア→イモア→イモヤ→芋屋

I began to use it here when I felt I could just say anything anyways, people would just nod and make like if they got the joke.

I just don't understand how I fail being widly unpopular at the office with all the expert training I got here. I think I missed a crucial point, but which one...

Darling, I don't join those things, I HOST them. Who do you think I am, really.

Also, I edited the post about SS AW on IC. It was a rumor to begin with, so I thought it was better not to put it on IC, but since it's here, I'd rather... Well, you know.
On the other hand, Majin Donovan is not a rumor, if you like.

I think the crucial point is the fact that interacting with people is not the same as interacting in a message board.

I know! Therefore I try to be even more unfriendly and aggressive then I am here when real people enter my office, but I still haven't found a hate page against me on the net.
I think I should spare me some time and create it myself.

On the other hand, I've witnessed people sending their friends to ask me a question because they were too afraid of me. That's a beginning.

Also, welcome to the cafe!

I think you should webcast your job live, pointing the camera at your subjects while you destroy their sense of self-worth.

You can bully a few people into translating to English and Japanese in real time.

This would be much better than a hate page don't you think?

Oh, but we already do this.
Only 9.95€ for a complete day of work live (backnumbers also available for prices between 5.95€ and 19.95€ according to the hotness of the day).
Around the end of the year, people will vote by dialing a taxed phone number to vote which student deserve to have his exams and which should be morally assaulted one more year. Also, we are thinking about expending to a XXX late hour show, but we don't have enough students up to my standards to open this year.
If you're a hot bottom stud, why don't you come and learn Japanese in Paris? You'll get a discount in your inscriptions fees.
Which makes me think, what are Chaz and Moetan doing in 2005/2006...

"Re(5):Dear iggy" , posted Thu 14 Apr 04:28post reply

Yeah so about Neowave...
If they make this a KOF 2002 Perfect Edition then I see some potential for this game. Especially on Live. I think they should include some non-Neowave backgrounds as well as some non-Neowave AST BGMs. Although some of those Neowave backgrounds looked great and I'm not sure about the music at all. As for the cast I think it's more likely to have K9999 than Rugal? I might be wrong though. Also, the fact that I can finally have a Korean team consisting of May Lee, Kim, Jhun- now that's awesome.

Phoenix : the perfect korean team could actually be nice (well, I hate those 3 characters, but yeah, as a team, they are nice).
As for the cast, I really don't think they'll put K9999 back in another game. They really seem quite ashamed of him.
I'd love it if Rugal was the 98 normal Rugal tweaked a little, but unfortunately I wouldn't bet much on this.

Just like Samsupi, Nejibako, and others.

Hey Iggy-san, the latest Nejibako update is more interesting than usual, mainly because of the new clip and the new Q&A, and I say the first question alone is a winner, about the new Orochi.Thanks as always in advance for your translations.

Damn Iggy-san, then what is the first question about?Because all I figure out is KOF'97 and the evil organization of this game.So it's not about the new Orochi or anything else interesting right?If so, sorry about disturbing you Iggy-san and better luck next time.
