I had a nap and I dreamed that Darkstalkers 4 was announced with ArcSys quality animation. Then I woke up and realized none of it was real and tried to go back to sleep to bring it back but to no avail.

Will I ever see Morrigan's tits again, God?

Only in your dreams

Apparently BlazBlue Centralfiction got rollback or some shit. The only character that looks cool to me in that game is the weird mask worm thing.

I don't think this game will live more than 2 weeks

One of many franchises Capcom forgot about, but hey, maybe it pulls off a Ghosts N Goblin's and gets a new game against all odds like that franchise did last year.

Speaking of Capcom and fighting games, while not the traditional 2D fighting game, i still want Power Stone 3, great memories of playing the first one with friends on a Dreamcast...the 2nd a bit less so thanks to cameras that were too zoomed out, but that one was still fun.

You'd think that in a world where Super Smash Bros is so popular, Capcom would revive their party fighting game but nope, i don't think the characters ever even came back for crossovers either, come on, Capcom, one guy is a pilot that literally turns into Iron Man, you'd think he would have gotten in one of the Marvel VS Capcom games before the relationship between the two companies went to hell and killed the franchise.

Another fighting game announced, Phantom Breaker:Omnia with a trailer that has a very forced enthusiastic announcer:


It's so cheesy bad it steals attention from the actual game, as for it...seems ok-ish but it's very much a cute characters kind of game...and looking at it, they have announced it won't have Rollback, so no reason to pick this over KOF XV or DNF Duel when it comes to upcoming fighting games.

Is that DFO game this is based on any good or does it do that crazy Asian sweatshop bullshit?
Both, actually. It's been topping the charts for a decade and the gameplay is (was?) good, basically Anime Streets of Rage Online -which is a rarity by itself-

It's just the case that western journos underreport Eastern trends. The most played game in the world right now is some chinese MOBA or something like that.

Every fantasy game ever.
For people that like to see ambitious ports done on inferior hardware, people have fixed Street Fighter Alpha 2's fucked loading times for SNES.



It's kinda tight. Video above has comparisons between the original game that was shipped vs. the fixed version on actual hardware.

I never cared much for Alpha 2 and thought A2 fans were real cringe with how they'd need to beat their chests like gorillas whenever somebody brought up Alpha 3. So fuck 'em.
