Demo 4/25
Game 7/24

No link navigation : it's a tunnel.
Hanyuda, events of the first game, from the point of view of gaijin characters.
The game is a way to test the PS3 before Siren 3 (which they develop as well).

Maybe some of the silhouettes are Miyako (the one before the Miyako we know) and Shimura's son ? Maybe the stories of the site will be adapted in the game ? Maybe Tamon will be in, and the supreme power of the PS3 will make his wig even wiggier ? Can we unlock some secret games, Mus˘ SDK ? Mus˘ Miyata ? Mus˘ Yoriko at long last ?

Really?? But why? It seemed to be such a nice game...

Is it being considered a disaster in terms of quality or in financial terms?

Whoa! Only 20 arcades across Japan ordered the game!? I looked around the site and I see that there are 172 arcades that have Tekken 6 and 53 arcades that have KOF98UM.

I guess it's going to be another SNK game that will fade away into darkness.

The lists are generated from user-contributed data so the figures are far from accurate. One example, it only shows five arcades with Arcana Heart 2 in all of Tokyo, but there's more than that in just the Shinjuku area alone.

The MK site has a blurry picture of Scorpion up now(you might need to step back from the screen to see it). And there appear to be some rumors going around that this will be Mortal Kombat versus DC Comics(Komiks?)

Damn Naruto games always being pre-time skip. I'm tired of seeing the first 90 episodes over and over.

Oddly enough I think this may be a step UP for DC gaming considering what we've gotten before. Justice League Heroes was a promising venture, but it appears they aren't going anywhere with that franchise.

It will be interesting to see how they will handle the fighting styles. The last set of MK games used basic martial arts styles as their bases with chain combos, but I don't really see that working for anyone but Batman.

I think New York Comic-Con is tomorrow so maybe we will get more news then.

Engine looks fine. Lots of references to the first game, same places etc.

Now that I think of it, the Gaijin angle could prove very interesting if they approach the "communication with locals" issue properly.

I wonder if this is an attempt to re-introduce Siren to the Western world, or just...craziness. I loved the first game, but I never finished it because my options were Japanese that I was afraid I wouldn't be able to understand or an English dub that erm..."ruined the ambiance".

This time, I'm in either way. I don't want any more regrets.

Here's hoping for Tamon somewhere, though.

JLH was dropped because the characters were ugly Poser 3 trash. But this is exactly WHY DC gaming wasn't going anywhere, because DC's game licenses get thrown around by idiots who have no idea who can do a good job. If anything this latest venture is just a clear indication of them hitting rock-bottom, the point at which a partnership with MK can actually improve it. It's truly sad.

Forget fighting styles! The question is, will DC characters have fatalities!?

If I can get Batman to kill someone, I'm buying this game even though I don't care about either MK or DC!

...Well, the crossover itself is weird enough. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Comics?? But at least that picture of Sub-Zero facing Batman is cool.

What bothers me, though, is that Boon seems to be considering this crossover as "Mortal Kombat 8", instead of a spin-off MK title. I hope I just misunderstood what the news said.

(*will Wonder Woman and Sonya Blade become a tag-team in this game? That would be nice...*)

From what we see in the trailer, odds are the gaijins will witness "strange things" that are actually resurgences of the first games, or ennemies that are actually characters from the first game. I suppose it will be made in a non-frustrating way for gaijin newcomers, but knowing who these monsters are will surely enhance the experience.

The first game is old, surely there is an english FAQ explaining things without sucking too much, is there ? At worse, you can ask here.

LOL, this project is even more boneheaded than I thought. What's the point of crossing over if they're going to take out the only thing that MK is known for? They might as well have just made a DC-only fighter.

This is.... interesting?

I'll play the game since the last 2 MK games were at least fun, and I need an excuse to say "Goddamn" more while playing videogames (All-Star Batman=Epic Win) but I can't say this makes even the least bit of sense.

I can see DC thinking it'll finally give them a footing in the fighting game market Marvel has enjoyed for a while (which they could have had too if they were willing to work with a Japanese company) and I can see Midway thinking this will make MK 'go legit' since it can't have blood or murder... but really unless this leads to "MK vs SF vs DC vs Marvel" (or shit, really just "MK vs SF" and "Marvel Vs DC" as too seperate games would be better) it really doesn't *need* to exist.

... if MK HAD to have a pointless crossover (and ever game series does... right, 'Mario and Sonic at the Olympics'?... which by the way we should all boycott because of Bowser's Mushroom rights abuse record) I wish they would have made the game every 13 year old boy wants to play and assembled a bunch of slasher movie villians (and hell, Ash too I guess), give them Fatalities and let them fight the MK characters.

If MK has to go for the obligatory stunt casting that would be the way to go. It makes far more sense than having Batman fight Sub-Zero.

Speaking of which, the trailer is up.

I think this is very high risk/high reward for both companies. I think there's far more risk on Midway's part because if this fails, this could be the proverbial nail in the coffin for the Mortal Kombat series and possibly for American fighting games across the board. Midway needs for this to both be a financial success and for this to play well (which are two entirely different things).

Do Animalities break the Source wall and warp you to Earth-26? The world may never know.

Speaking of DC, is anyone else here reading Countdown? The final issue comes out on Wednesday. I guess I'm excited over it, but not like 52 where I couldn't wait to see what happened next; rather, I'm just glad this train wreck is over...

Also:

Can any of the kombatants (or even ALL of them joining forces) defeat Superman?? The only ones that may have a chance would be the magic users, like Shang Tsung, Nightwolf and Quan Chi...

What about Wonder Woman? She's also quite strong herself - and she's resistant to magic, if I remember.

Flash would be another tough competitor, but I guess Boon can just make up the story that he's just as fast as Kabal... lame, I know, but it's possible.

I wonder if the really violent DC characters (Joker, Batgirl, Superboy Prime... and, OF COURSE, LOBO!!) will appear in this game. That would be interesting... and make more sense than honored heroes like Batman or Superman...

At the 2008 New York Comic Con, during the joint Marvel Entertainment and Sega panel showcasing the upcomig Iron Man and Hulk video games, Justin Lambros, the Marvel Vice President of Interactive did not announce a new fighter game featuring Marvel characters. However, Lambros did say that with Marvel and Sega's current successful partnership, the time was right for a new fighter game and he was eager to bring such a product to the market. Lambros said that he would most likely be annoucing a Marvel fighter game at next year's Comic Con. Doing the math, that means that the game should be out in Q3 or Q4 of 2009.

Dropped this series about 10 issues in. I've been reading spoiler since then, and even the spoilers sound awful. I'm hoping that in the end Final Crisis will make sense of the mess that was Countdown.

I'm enjoying Salvation Run a bit (though it's nowhere near as good as Villains United was), so at least not all of the FC tie-ins suck.

Holy crap! That's awesome news, although very surprising for a couple of reasons. First, the third game was a complete failure. The second was at least a well received game, but as far as I know not financially successful. Which was a shame, since the first two games were awesome.

Second the cartoon was great, but was also not as successful as it deserved to be.

So I'm surprised that both are being revived. As long as they are the quality of the first two games (and original cartoon), I'll be happy.

Thats great news, I had jim2 on the super nintendo. It was the craziest thing I've seen and i loved it.I remember back when i was a kid in our house there was a big round pillow that looked exactly like that marshmallow thingy that jim used to bounce those puppies in the bonus stage (every game back then had to have bonus stages) so I would hold the pillow while my brother threw the balls (we didn't have puppies sadly).
Its a bit worrying that interplay are going all out with a new game, a new cartoon and a new movie all out. At least having Doug TenNapel,the guy who created the character, with them should help them with the art style which is obviously very important.

I really really hope the best for them and am pretty excited.

It's good to see one of the forerunners of exploitation gaming is making a comeback. I hope this revival delivers the same innocent, child-like joy of being able to hack up a zombie with a machete that the original Splatterhouse served up so well.

I'm just gonna enjoy it because, isn't Jack Thompson barred from his lawyer practice? He would probably have a field day if this game lives up to the expectations of the old splatter house games. Can't get any better than smacking a zombies head off with a 2 by 4.

Ahhhh my interest just deflated like a balloon.

There was something really magical that happened in the 80s and early 90s when Japanese companies made American influenced stuff. Like all the beatemups inspired by cheesy cop/vigilante movies or Splatter House being obviously inspired from Slasher flicks and other horror movies. When those things were reflected through the Japanese lens, the result was often inspired and charming. I don't know if an American company can capture (or even want to capture) that charm.

I can already imagine all the messy collaged together painted over cg concept art they will be making for the game. It will be grimey and have lots of rust and look like every other gritty game being made. The new hero will probably be an asshole like Kratos from God of War, forgetting that the original character, inspite of his evil looks, was simply a heroic guy out to rescue his gal.

I'm not saying they have to keep it old school, but I am pretty sure they won't advance the series in any interesting way.

Or maybe i'm completely wrong and it'll be the first time a US company has done something actually good with an old school franchise rather than the typical setup where a Japanese company remembers that they had a series that was marginally popular in the US a decade or 2 ago so lets hire some b-list team of Americans to make a new installment.

It's just that, it's like you said, the track record for American updates of older games is not good. My favorite game of that sort so far is Contra 4, which was a decent game, but not as good as Super Contra.

Also, Afro Samurai is kind of bland, but not bad. It is nice to see something on American TV with actual hand drawn animation though. But Afro Samurai was created in Japan and Korea for American audiences, it's not an actual American product in any way other than funding (except for the music by the RZA).

True, but I'm talking about the game - the game looks passable, but not much has really been revealed yet. It's being done by Namco in the U.S., so if it's good, maybe I'll get more confident.

OK that changes everything. Mark of Kri had a very excellent sense of violence that was very brutal, but not obnoxious. Those guys have the potential to make a killer Splatter House. I can't think of a better American developer for the game.

Here is a good refresher on Splatterhouse:

Also, that new Speed Racer cartoon looks and sounds like garbage. It's even worse than the new Transformers Cartoon. Hell, it looks even worse than the new George of the Jungle Cartoon.

That is good news. While I agree that the original Splatterhouse had its charm -now there's a word I never thought I would use to describe the game- it wasn't a flawless masterpiece either. While piloting a copyright infringing lumox around a gruesome action game was fun, the sluggish controls and pattern memorization made sure it was something I would only remember through nostalgia instead of actually wanting to play it again. Finding out that the newest edition of Splatterhouse is being made by a group that seem to have a good grasp on how this sort of title should work has given me a lot more confidence about this game. Perhaps some older things can be successfully updated...

Evidently what's going on is that the start of the counter move freezes the opponent, and then the opponent gets hit... except that when the hitting part whiffs, the opponent doesn't get unfrozen.

SBX continues to make an excellent case for, "test your fighting game just enough to make sure there are as few game crashing bugs as possible, and then just kick it out the door and REALLY fix it in the next revision/console release".

Yeah...whooo...that was something. I encourage people who can find no wrong with Japanese VAs to give her a listen.

I wonder if the game will have online support. I want to get it, but I'm low on funds right now (or rather, I don't have a lot of work coming in).

In mildly-related news, I found the Siren demo to be stupidly stupidly easy (beating four enemies at once!? What the hell!?) and the MGO beta to be shockingly fun. If I could only make a character that doesn't look like a total retard, I'd probably play that game forever. As it stands now, I made myself quit. Sneak mode rocks my world, though.

I liked Teen Titans a lot, but I don't know if this style of art suits Transformers. I know the same could have been said of TT back in the day when it debuted on CN... but it worked. I guess I'll have to check out this show if possible.

Yeah, the voice acting was definitely random. Since Sen goes back to the original actors I wonder if it might be possible for the replaced voices to be fresh ones instead of copy/pasted from earlier SS games. At least there's no crime in hoping.

The US SS Anthology is slated for a Q4 release last I heard from the GDC. Unlike the Japanese version, our version WILL include Zero Special. I wonder though what form of the zetsumeis, if any, will be in the package? The collection will get an M rating for sure if they are the uncensored ones. Then again, since only the English version of Sen has violence there might be a shot of getting the full deal.

In other news the latest ESRB listing includes Earthbound, the original Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown 2 all getting Virtual Console release on the Wii.

Finally, I've been seeing an image lately of a new SS themed RPG for the DS called Haohmaru Haohmaru. Speaking of DS, whatever happened to that Iroha DS dress up game?

If that's Hamauzu (and it definitely sounds like it), I'm already sold on the soundtrack. Hamauzu delivers some of the best piano-centric music I've ever heard, and from certain cues on the site it looks like this game will have a heavy focus on piano.

My only concern is whether or not the music will really sound like that on the DS. I mean I've heard some nice soundtracks on the DS but nothing of the richness and quality on that site.

I ran into it on a message board. Can't remember where though. I'm not even sure if this is legitimate or not considering I don't think SNKP announced anything regarding this as of yet.

Its Ronin's sig from S-C.com. I asked him about it, -since this guy is famous about making sigs at there- whether its true or made up sig cause I couldnt find any info anywhere,too (including Snk's site). He never answered and some other member LOL'ed at me. So I assume this is not real.

Definitely no Zero Special.

That's good news. Those Tenkaichi voices were... curious. Strange, SNK could replace half the voice actors in some other game and I wouldn't care but I immediately notice any little discrepancy in the SS voices. It's amazing how much the correct grunts will help sell a game.

At the moment I'm really excited about this web page. Hopefully the game itself will be able to live up to the charming advertisement.

In the latest re-hash news, the changes to SF2HD Guile have been announced. I'm not really sure what I think about the change in the input of his super move.

Updates: Hamauzu's the composer, hurray!
It really sounds like he's channeling Mitsuda's earlier pre-ethnic Chrono Trigger-era, classical string and piano pieces. Great stuff.

As for the story I mentioned, that was just from the official site. Just watched it again. Underneath Tokyo, the Kurogami clan has a mansion in which there is a great clock, which holds sealed demons called Ouma, which they watch over. The Kurogamis are Sound Magicians, of which the main character, Sigma, will be the next head. So one day the world grows completely empty of humans and the Ouma roam the skies. Somebody seems to have changed the past, so the heroes travel back in time to prevent this future and investigate mysterious murders that seem to have caused the change. I'm interested...

MORE: the director is Chiba Hiroki, who was the event planner for Chrono Trigger! Also for VII, VIII, and X. Er, and Dirge of Cerberus, but let's forget that. Kitase produces.

"New Doujin Fighter Game" , posted Mon 5 May 13:26:post reply

The news is about a week old, but there's a new fighter named Million Knights Vermillion in development for release within the year. It's being created by NRF, the doujin team that made Bigbang Beat: 1st Impression.

Unlike most doujin fighters, the game is completely original and not based on any bishoujo titles. NRF's got Senkou no Rondo's Shouji Sogabe to do the character designs, and although they kind of lack in variety, they still look pretty good.

A whopping 80 MB trailer (DivX format) is downloadable from the game's official site. Athough only one character is apparently playable at the current stage, the game looks to be in GGX-like resolution, which hasn't been done yet with a doujin fighter as far as I know.

Just to make sure that this stays the Sigma Harmonics thread forever:

I've now had the website up for the last hour in the background listening to Hamauzu's tune nonstop. I think this is the greatest piano and string work since "Longing of the Wind" (medieval map theme), "Premonition" (pendulum intro), and "Brink of Time" from Chrono Trigger.

I'm still puzzled as to how this is supposed to come out this summer given that this is the first I've heard of it. That's, like, four months at the very most?

Hey, this is neat. Looking at the character designs, I see Tamala and her skirt and stockings and think - this is the character I will play. If they follow conventions, she's the one that will use lots of kicks, flip around in the air and stuff, and be the one I'll use. If they're not predictable, I guess that'll be fine, but I'd rather they were!

That is pretty interesting. I see it was shown at TAF; does it mean these guys are from the Animation business originally? That would explain the attention to graphics. I only went to one TAF (2006) and it featured a lot of doujin animation obviously, but no games. So it does not seem usual to me that someone would pimp out their games there.

Also Prof, seems you have some knowledge and possibly connections on the subject: what's your take on BigBang Beat not getting licensed for arcades? I was surprised (and very happy) to see that Akatsuki made it, and since then MONSTER also jumped to an arcade release. How come BBB did not make it? It was featured on Ko-hatsu at least as much as Akatsuki, and made a bigger splash on the doujin scene (or at least, that was my impression). I could understand the counter-argument "it does not catter to any niche", but then again, neither does Akatsuki...

It was actually announced quite a while ago, if I recall. I remember seeing the character designs in Famitsu.

Still, I'm liking these later announces rather than the crap that seems to plague the PS3 where they release screenshots that look totally different (and way better) than the actual game ends up looking.

Heh. I've done that, too! Twice, as a matter of fact. I forgot to mention earlier that the time travel story has me interested, but it's the music that has me hooked. I can't get enough of just that one song! It sounds like a mix of Chrono Trigger music and Panzer Dragoon Saga music.

I have a feeling the NRF programmer ARESU wanted to dump the BBB project because it wasn't selling well enough (like how he did with Fate/Sword Dance), which caused a split in the team as team members leave and create the new doujin group AJA.

So BBB is thrown to AJA and AJA becomes responsible for all future support of the game. But since they don't have the programmer ARESU on their team, and ARESU doesn't want to share the game source code, there isn't much they can actually do with the game.

Hence we'll never see an arcade port of BBB.

Also they probably appeared at TAF because TokyoKids is a professional animation studio that has worked on a multitude of anime.

But it has the old 'Super Megatron' character model in it!



wooooooooooooooow I hadn't seen that. What an atrocity!! Is that Optimus prime?! wowoooarghd...Is it me? Getting old? or are these new cartoon really garbage?




The one gripe most ppl have with transformers animated is the art direction.(I like it) If you can get over that. You'll find its a well written show with lots of nods for G1 fans, with a great voice cast(Lockdown/Lance Henriksen, Sentinel Prime /Townsend Coleman aka The Tick, Starscream/Tom Kenny, Jazz/Phil LaMarr); and a real thought out world, scenario, and history.

IMO they took what was good about G1 and BW and combined them into something modern and watchable. But my opinion on it as a show is a bit biased as I'm a huge TF fan that was hooked since I was young.

And when you consider the target age group, and the previous horrible quality of the Armada/Super Link/Galaxy Force shows. You'll find its not so bad and a change worth checking out. Give it a shot for a few episodes.

It's time to just accept that HasTak isn't making the show for us anymore. The franchise is aimed at the millions of kiddies who will be getting Optimii under the Tree this holiday season, hence the movie and Animated being so disjointed from the original property. Now don't get me wrong - I dig Animated, despite the artstyle there's a lot that they do 'right'. But basically if you're hung up on the 'old skool' stuff then just stick with the Classics (which are F'IN SWEET btw!). Anyone who hasn't seen them new ones yet are encouraged to pay a visit to Seibertron and visit the Botcon galleries.

Weird Al voices Wreck-Gar.

Spike and Carly are in it, they're in a good half the episode, and Spike has his old 2006-version voice.

Bah Weep Grah-nah-weep nini bong!

Wreck-Gar chucks his G1 bike form at Bumblebee.

And of course the killer: "I am Wreck-Gar! I DARE to be stupid!"

Hey that looks pretty fun actually.

I just flat out don't like the character designs and animation style. But then, I also hated how Beast Wars looked initially (no drawing at all), but it grew on me because the characters and the stories were still great.

All the Transformers series tend to be pretty good.

Heck, even Transformers Armada, which was written for 5 year olds, had some great moments including a really good last episode with a satisfying resolution to the Autobot/Decepticon conflict (plus it was drawn well!):

I'm not saying I don't like Animated, just that our generation isn't the target audience anymore, despite all the G1 throwbacks. On that note, however, latest screens have shown Swindle, Scrapper, and Mixmaster (somewhere on this page), and the latest spoilers revealed the coming of Waspinator, Omega Supreme (apparently he was the Ark the whole time!), Shockwave (in cognito as an Autobot), and an army of Starscream clones that may or may not include his classic Seeker buddies.
