[QUOTE] You're afraid to look like an enormous geek... IN A FIGHTING GAME FORUM??? O_O :p There's a difference between looking like whomever and looking like... say, Sano. [/QUOTE] I told ya on the "I give up" thread I had no cool points. And seriously, just the fact that you post at MMCAFE I'm sorry to say, makes you a Nerd/Geek/Dork. There's nothing wrong with that. The way I see it, every guy fills their head up with knowledge of every sports event that ever happened in the existence of mankind, we just fill the void with comics, cartoons, games, etc. So long as you master the art of not bringing any of this stuff up in actual conversation and having outside interests your personal relationships with the opposite sex should turn out fine(and please shower, watch your weight and stuff). Rejoice in Nerd-dum I say. Adjust your glasses and raise your pocket protectors up in the air! And I suppose I'm the only one who preferred SFZ1 to SFZ2. Granted I never played either of them competitivly or in the Arcades, was pretty poor back then, could just afford to buy the games and that's it, play with friends and relatives. I played SFZ3 in the Arcades a lot though, my financial situation changed by then. Here's why I liked SFZ1 more than SFZ2 at least. 1. I hated Custom Combos. Now anyone can do a Combo just by hitting 2 bottons and button mashing instead of all the work that goes into learning a combo? Get the *f* out of here. Speaking of wich, I didn't care for my Chain Combos being lessened and/or gone entirely. No longer could I combine Chun-Li's kick Super with a Fireball Super for 15 hits without godly super precise timing if even at all. 2. SFZ1 offered no endings on Level 1. Increase the difficulty bitch to get a real ending! No Fighter should offer endings on Level 1 I feel. When the heck did this trend start? There's no stopping it nowadays though. 3. When you beat SFZ on Level 8 with any character you were treated to a special song for each character, more incentive to beat the game with every character on Level 8. Chun-Li's Piano song was amazing. 3. Ryu and Ken vs. Vega(Cape). OMG IT'S TEH MOVIE! 4. When you beat Gouki, the screen blew up with a big white flash from a regular hit, you were called a great player and the background looked 'sort of' like 'space' in the last episode of SF2V only light blue with stuff flying around (Okay it looked more like a Megaman Boss Intro screen) and you were told you were a great player and you believed it - that was just classic. 5. DAN WAS USEFUL! 6. SFZ had new characters with Rose, Nash and Dan. SFZ2, what new characters??? Gen from SF1, Rolento from FF, Dhalsim and Zangief who I used to hate back in the day from SF2 and look at the brand spanking new character. Sailor Moon with Ryu's head! Yes, by this point I've gotten to like Dhalsim, Zangief and even Sakura, it's kind of hard not to as many times Capcom has rammed them down my throat, especially Sakura. The next few are storyline stuff, I guess you can ignore if you don't particularly care for these type of things. 7. NASH IS STILL ALIVE IN SFZ2, OKAY WTF WHERE'S GUILE??? Lots of luck figuring out SFZ2's storyline retconned SFZ1's story without internet help or being able to read Japanese. 8. How dare they retcon Adon calling Vega(Cape) a Drug Dealer? That was priceless and made me an Adon fan on the spot! Adon/Gouki rivalry is beyond retarted. It can only end in the death of one of my favorite characters. They should of kept the Adon/Vega rivalry. 9. Ryu defeated Sagat again in SFZ1. Rivalry over since they didn't fight in SF2, now you have them fight prior, the rivalry is out of the way. But SFZ2 retcons it, rivalry stands. Now they have this rivalry that will never ever ever be settled and just sit there in the air for eternity. Honestly by SF4 I hope they resolve the Ryu/Sagat rivalry, his outstanding eternal rival should be Gouki and a friendly rivalry with Ken, that's it. But this is just storyline stuff, doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things I guess. It's not like Kyo/Iori will ever get settled either, nor will Sol/Ky or a bunch of other ones. But in general SFZ1 worked much better with the SF2 storyline, the retcons were not as drastic, SFZ2-SFZ3 really screwed things up, so much so most believe the series is an alternate reality. I wished they would of just upgraded SFZ1's storyline with more characters instead of changing everything with more retcons. I do however still love SFZ3's storyline though and what became of Ryu/Sagat, Cammy/Balrog(ninja) and Rose/Vega but I still wish they didn't make things as convuluted as they did. I pray that SF4 has no more storyline retcons and just builds on what's there. Please don't feel the need to say Vega never died or stupid ish like that. SFZ2 did own in the backgrounds though. SFZ3 is my favorite in the series. With all the Isms and SF2 characters it's really hard to hate on it, I can even forgive their cheesey endings. The Soundtrack really owned, the announcer told me I had fists of God, Feilong and Guile returned in the home ports, Vega(Cape) upped the anty as boss and Juni and Juli were really great sub bosses. And I just loved Xism Ryu and Chun-Li besides. Just the fact that if you didn't defeat Vega on the first try you reserved the lame-o ending in the arcades made me drop a fortune in the machine until I got Ryu and Chun-Li's Arcade 'true' endings while having to fight off all the human competition just to even accomplish this. Brings back fond memories.
