Musics, Haruhi's voice actress, SNAKE, the job animations... Too much cuteness.
The game feels more like a real FF than any XIII spinoff they ever showed.
My only gripe so far is there are too many humans. Shiromaruhi is OK, The ugly new Cid is meh, but where is the cute monster village from the second game ?

That is just great. Capcom seems to be a brothel to whore out characters (and their likeness) into other companies.
But this is news to me. The Simpsons looks better than the previous platformer they had before. It looks as if it has a two player co-op mode.

The date and price posted for the release seems unrealistic. Gamestop/EB Games/Shingosupersaiyan whatever is just trying to be the cool kid in the class, by being mister-know-it-all, stating that it will be in the consumers greasy hands that day. I think the release date and price will change, especially since there is not even a dvd cover art on the webpage.

While the dates on SNK games slide around like mercury the price sounds about right. Considering that the AOF and FF anthologies were going for $15USD I don't see why a stand-alone SNK title should be priced much higher.

In other news, the preview movie for Dark Void are out. I'm digging that retro jet pack.

Yeah, since Fatal Fury Battle Archives came at only $15, I'm pretty sure SNK USA is forced to release these 2d games at budget price so SCEA would approve of them.

Heh, clearly the case, Ishmael...it's like the PS2 got by thanks to brilliant decisions and design on the PSone that gained confidence for Sony, but looks like there are no more good decisions to let the PS3 coast to success the way the PS2 did in spite of itself. I lent my PSone to a friend four years ago and haven't missed it since thanks to BC...what a customer-hating, ill-advised thing to remove (doubly so since there are no games you would want to play on PS3 but a BluRay+PS2's excellent library might've been enough...).

"Random news Street Fighter on South Park" , posted Fri 26 Oct 00:49:post reply

So this week was the second part of the Imaginatioland episode. Akuma and Sagat were part of the evil imaginary characters, but both just stood around. There will be a replay tonight.

South Park has been okay this season, but not as good as season 10.

I'm 110% certain the 3 South Park episodes taking place in "Imaginationland" only exist for people to make avatars of their favorite 80's character in South Park style... and possible as some kind of joke that 80's Pop Culture has ruined Imagination to begin with since 'our imagination' is just filled with other people's creations.(perhaps as a slam againist Adult Swim/Family Guy/Drawn Together who's jokes seem to rely more and more on 'remember this!' rather then imagining something new)

Vaguely related Nerd Rage Post: Why are they on the evil side?! Sagat had his evil retconned away around SFA2 (where he no longer wants Ryu dead, just a nobel rematch.) and Akuma's just really powerful... wouldn't Bison been better?

Sagat and Akuma tend to be really popular characters in general, but for some reason they're particularly popular among animators. So it was probably personal preference that they were there, and it would make less sense to put them on the Good side.

Also, this is another testament to the continued power of the Street Fighter brand. It's a part of popular culture. Capcom needs to ignore that Street Fighter 3 wasn't popular, and remember that Street Fighter itself as a franchise is still really really well known and regarded.

Sensible nerd explanation: Well in the 80's you see, Sagat killed Dan's father (so he wears the eyepatch but does not sport the chest scar) and Akuma killed Gouken. So they both qualified as evil and had yet to enter any redemption.

What Matt and Trey were probably really thinking: "dude, Sagat totally looks like Tong Po on growth hormones, he's in. And Akuma, come on the guy's fucking name means, like, satan in asian or something"

Well, somebody needed to distribute the H-Game rights. And there's also the cellphone games that were in the same vein as the classic PC-E titles. Too bad that was just about it for the Valis we knew.

I kinda wish they'd release a compilation or something. I know they did something like that for PC. I kinda wish they did something like that for DS.

Wow! This game looks great! Thanks for the link.

I've been playing alot of 16 and 8 bit games lately and it's funny how much more involved and engrossing they can be in comparison to current games. I don't mean to say retro=good and modern=bad, but rather that in older titles you HAVE to pay attention to survive, whereas in alot of new games I can sorta veg out and mash buttons and still do ok.

Can't wait to get my hands on this new Contra.

On the other hand, I can't disguise my amusement with the introduction of Mad Dog and Scorpion as separate characters from Bill and Lance.

This video should give you an idea of what the first stage music really is. As for the tone, the game intro itself does have a more serious vibe to it than on the website. My guess is the "Jagger Froid" stuff is merely for marketing purposes as to incite nostalgia from those who remember some of the old lines from manuals.

That's good. I like how fun and just a bit tongue in cheek the site is, but I was hoping the game itself would be dead serious. Contra always had this really really bleak feel to it, especially Super Contra. I'm glad Wayforward is upholding that. It means they understand how a game should "feel" beyond just how it looks. Bravo.

I wonder if that's a good thing, or a bad thing. Granted, I'm hoping that the extra year and some change was good to them, but I really want to see CV go in a new direction, not be just another year of Dawn of Sorrow with some new maps and a few new sprites here and there.

CV's been pretty stagnant since Aria of Sorrow/Minuet of Dawn on the GBA. And if they don't change it up soon, it won't be long before CV will start getting ridiculed like Rockman was.

Owen: This is your 21st-century individual who enjoys gaming and demands the best out of his experience—and probably his women. The PS3 guy enjoys life to its fullest. He is sophisticated, intelligent, enjoys competition and is willing to wait for a good thing. He is loyal as well.


Owen: That he is selfish about his passion, but he knows the Wii is acceptable because of its social interaction functionality. He is smart enough to find a way to continue to game and not scare his date away.


He sounds like he is blindly in love with Ps3. I Lol'ed. But he is right, A guy has to be loyal to Sony to buy a Ps3 right now, instead of waiting a cheaper, better version of it, like, after two years.

While it certainly looks promising I'm not fully sold on Tekken 6 until I find out what Roger Jr.'s story is. How can I enjoy the game if I don't know why the family of kangaroos have once again entered a fighting tournament?

Not really. All they did was add the bound system (just a fancy name for a kind of juggle extender) and show off new characters and new costumes. The version going around is pretty much final right now.

The US (international?) version is going to be shown at the IAAPA expo soon.

Well I don't remember all the changes(and most of them being moves changes like command input or damage/propriéties changes), But I rememebr a lot of complain on the TZ forums and each time a locktest was set a part of those comments did disapear. one of the most easy to remember were the "flaming hand" effet and the 2P costumes. at the bigining when the rage mode was set, more damage on you means more power and in order to show that Namco did put some flame on the characters fist... But this didn't fit to the fans, so they've changed it to a red effect during impact. Peoples did complain as welle that the 1st LT only have 1P costume, quite difficult during mirror match, than namco did add the 2P costume, and a 3P costume which is just a ramdom edit of the characters with randoms items on him.
there was some other changes like air damageground and wall possibility or such...Still there is one complain Namco seems to be stupid enough to not change. Some characters misses to the cast, and for exemple after the HUGE mess the "Kunimitsu come back" for TK5DR was made poeples were sure to find her in TK6, sadly no, and same for some other characters like ogre or Unknow...Curious to know why Namco didn't make it.

On an other hand many TK fans take TK6 as a an edit like TK5DR + or VF4 evo, not like a real sequel.

BTW Thank ishmael.

Aren't both Kunimitsu and Ogre dead (or at least considered dead) in the Tekken storyline? If I'm not mistaken, the same applies to Jun Kazama...

As for Unknown, is she even a canon character?

I'm fine with the T6 characters; the only weird choice is putting again Marshall Law in it. I mean, why did Namco even created Forrest to substitute his father if he was only used in Tekken 3 (oh, and Tag Tournament)??

It would be nice also if Michelle was in it, but that's not happening, probably. I hope at least this time Julia's story mentions her...

Forrest's scenario and personality suck. Marshall, on the other hand, is one of the best funny characters (far better than, say, Panda. I'm really disappointed in her since the last two games).

That would be really nice. But is there any chance for that to happen?? Because gameplay-wise, Asuka has already substituted Jun; and storyline-wise, Xiaoyu is replacing Jun as the woman to care about Jin (even though she has stupid ideas like wanting to create a time-travel machine...).

Well, while after 3 and in 4, A LOT of characters where "assumed" dead, after 5 very few of those deaths where confirmed, if we look at tekken history, we'll have something like.

Kazuya -> dead, and ressurected
Devil -> dead, and ressurected but has never properly apeared again
Jun -> stated as dead in 3 and 4
Kuma 1st -> stated as dead, had a succesor
King 1st -> dead, but had a succesor
Armor king -> dead, and "dark ressurected"
Jack -> destroyed and reconstructed for almost every tournament
Ogre -> stated as dead in 4 and 5

Perhaps I'm missing someone =V

Yeah, after Tekken 3 came out some of the more bloodthirsty fans thought that everyone who wasn't in the game had been killed. Instead, most of them just got older and grew facial hair. I'm sure Bruce, Wang and the rest were given up for dead for awhile. Of the currently "dead" characters I'll bet that Jun and Kunimitsu will turn up again as soon as Namco can figure out a reason for them to still be eighteen years old. At this point the only Tekken character who probably remain in limbo is poor Alex.

Well none of Kuni and Ogre are said dead. Really only Jun, King, and Kuma are...Some of the jack( Gun, prototype)as well but robots can be repared.
Kuni was just stated as Defeated. Ogre was the same defeated (his a god after all) and even in TK5 action gamen jin did fight ogre or a similar beast, then again in Dragunov's ending something let you think that ogre is alive (Drag found a unknow life form frozen, and awake it with devil jin power)...Add to the mix the new TK6 boss with looks similar...So Ogre can come back.

no, and that's why peoples wants her in a "real" episode , in order to learn more about her and to gives her a true role.

I hope that Namco will change their mind and add TRC in tK6 (which is said as a "no" for the moment) and and those missing characters.

Forrest is in Tekken 6. If you watch the stage with the pigs bouncing around, during the intro a truck drives through it and crashes. Forrest is driving the truck.

BTW I could have sworn the current Kuma was supposed to be female. That's why I always thought the Kuma/Panda thing was funny because Kuma is gay and Panda is a homophobe.
