All I know is the Penny Arcade guys seemed to think it was very deep and gave them two comics worth of material.

Where the hell do you live where there's not a Gamestop within 100 miles?  Alaska?

The deal was available online when I posted about it.

No, we have them. I wouldn't be that mad if we didn't.

Melty Blood Actress Again

A name so rad I instantly googled it.  It then got more rad with names like type-moon and french-bread, complete with hyphens!

Hah, I hear ya! When I saw the first PS2 game on shelves, I immediately dismissed it due to the title - thinking it was one of those girly JPRG's that they have so many of over there.. thankfully I found out the  truth soon after! Actually a really fun vs fighter. Kind of in the vein of Guilty Gear, but not as over the top.

Ok, I just bought Dissidia, and I'm having so much fun with it.

Though, my favorite character, Cecil, I can't play. I just can't get the hang of switching between his dark and light side. Though if I manage to get him to Paladin Cecil, he's totally playable for me.

<_< I'm not good with my dark side I guess.

Tekkaman Blade is now in TvC.

Frank West, Zero (from Mega Man or Zero Akuma from Cyberbots), Joe the Condor from Gatchaman and Yatterman No. 2 are also said to be additions based on someone finding their names in the code for the Japanese site.

Capcom Project Manager Natsuki Shizawa dropped some hints on the Street Fighter IV blog that we’ll be getting an announcement regarding a sequel to the popular and revolutionary versus fighter in the not so distant future. Tokyo Game Show, anyone?

It’s rather early to do a full-on Street Fighter V sequel, so I’m expecting an expansion on IV, much like how we had SF2: Champion, Turbo and Super editions in the past.

Colour me excited, either way! I just hope they have enough material to warrant a new addition to this series. Ideally, I’d like to see a continuation of the storyline and ultimately the return of some missing favourites like T. Hawk & Dee Jay from Super and especially the self-proclaimed “God of Muay Thai” Adon from Alpha.

I'd like to mention that Melty Blood Actress Again is based on a visual novel called Tsukihime. Tsukihime has 5 different routes (girls) you can go through to reach your desired true ending. Melty Blood apparently follows none of those naturally, as its actually a continuation of a route that was axed (supposedly).

Just saying...

Yep. Tsukihime has certainly spawned a lot of media outside of the visual novel (two mangas and an anime, plus these fighting games). The games themselves, I find pretty fun. Kind of like a simpler Guilty Gear type of engine with even more quirky characters.

Check out the anime if you haven't, it's also pretty well done (even the English dub is surprisingly not horrible).

If they do ANYTHING with Street Fighter (that's not obvious crap) I will be happy. People in the scene are still super pumped about SF4.

My thoughts exactly. It's only been about 7 months since SFIV came out on consoles.. there's no way they should be releasing a glorified expansion on disc/@retail.

From escapistmagazine:

Quote
Gamespot has the full skinny: SSF4 will bump up the existing character roster of 25 by adding eight new fighters, three of whom have been revealed thus far. Juri is a new female character, a nimble Tae Kwon Do practitioner from Korea, whereas Super Street Fighter II combatants T. Hawk and Dee Jay will be making a return.

This, of course, leaves five unannounced characters, and while it's possible that some of them could be original fighters like Juri, it's probable that some of them will be fan favorites from other games as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Dudley and Ibuki from Street Fighter III, personally.

SSF4's pre-existing fighters will get an overhaul, too. New Ultra attacks will be added, and balance issues will be addressed based on feedback from the community and testers - so hopefully Sagat won't be quite so overpowered anymore. According to producer Yoshinori Ono, the game would include a superior online system (including a long-awaited lobby feature) but consequently would not be compatible with plain ol' SF4.

That, of course, is the crux of the matter - unlike, say, Fallout 3, this won't be a simple DLC update for people who already have Street Fighter IV. Super SF4 will be a retail-disc release, though it won't be a full-price game. While I'm glad to hear that it won't be sold at full price, any and all enthusiasm will be tempered depending on how much it will sell for.

After all, didn't gamers get tired of buying the same game over and over again back around the time Super Street Fighter II Turbo rolled around?

Any guess/wishes on who they should have as the remaining five?

Well, not being full price is at least meeting us halfway I guess.. and I guess it makes sense to be disc based for people who don't want to buy the first IV game and shell out more for an update.

As for the remaining five.. I'm hoping for Adon in there.

1 returning female since three in all seems like one too many. The rest dudes, 1-2 of whom will be new.

I'd like Karin, Mika, or Ingrid before Ibuki, honestly. Hugo, Dudley, Q, and Adon as possibilities/hopefuls otherwise.

It's going to be Ibuki. Wasn't she near the top for the voting in which characters would be added for the original home release? The contest that Rose, Fei Long, Cammy, and Sakura won? Or maybe just Cammy and Sakura.

So I seem to be totally engrossed during my spare time and time I'm not sleeping due to drugs, I've been playing BlazBlue that I got from a gift card from work. Such a fun game, and I totally love the soundtrack, I got it on my iPod (I FOUND IT~!), and its totally awesome. Haven't had this much fun with a fighter since MBACvb.

Still having problems learning all the different terminologies for fighting games and also still not responsive enough to keep it up with some of the more skilled players, like HeartNana (though I haven't played him in BB, only MBACvb), but I'm enjoying it never the less. I think the story mode helped with that.

My favorite character is Noel Vermillion. I'm still learning how to play her properly, but I'm getting better. Or so I've been told.

HeartNana beat me 10-0 in SC2 money matches at Evo.  He's mean! :(

I really enjoyed BlazBlue the one time I played it.  The presentation is very impressive - the graphics and soundtrack are really epic.  I keep toying with the idea of buying it, but I just know I won't have time to play it.

18 days until Tekken 6!  I'm so excited, the little I've played it has been so good.  Anyone else planning to play it much?

Oh wow Jer you got to play him live? I would love to. And yeah, he's an absolute beast. Though there was a few times that I managed to actually beat him on MBACvb and I was really happy about that. Him and few others I made friends with had encouraged me to keep with it saying I do actually have talent, I just need to actually put the effort in to learn the character's whole skill set.

So I took that as a positive. Though I still suck right now.

Hehe yeah, we were both feeling nostalgic for SC2, so we played a couple sets at Evo.  SC2 is my best game by far, but I got absolutely tooled.  He was a superstar at that game, top 5 in the country easily.  I got a prop in the Evo thread though, so I felt special, haha.

Just out of curiousity, what is MBACvb?

Proper name is Melty Blood Act Cadenza Version B. Its a series of fighting games based on the storyline ending of a path in Tsukihime (visual novel) that was never finished for the actual game.

Confused? That's nothing compared to the actual storyline... The game also just had its sequel (or like 5 revision really...) Melty Blood Actress Again, but got released for the arcade and PS2.

Yeah... I don't get why on the PS2 either.

I might buy BlazBlue for the PS3.  Of course, you could accomplish the exact same two stick goal by buying another stick for 360. :)

I do need to buy another stick.  I was going to buy the wireless Tekken 6 stick, but I think it has the same crappy Hori buttons as the bad stick.  I might have to finally give in and buy a RAP.

You need to buy a PS3.  How are you going to play Tekken 6 on a 360 pad?  I tried it, and it was a pain inducing experience.

The 360 pad is too big a handicap for even Julia to overcome.  When elbow comes out as u/f+1, you might as well just mash but-tons and hope for the best.  Seriously, I had more luck playing SC4 on the bad stick when the broken but-ton was Guard than I had playing Tekken 6 with a 360 pad.  It was horrible.  I have nightmares about it.

12 days!  Get hype!

We can play a little til I break a controller in frustration. Then back to BlazBlue :D

And Joe the Condor. Still one more to be announced, but since the reveals are matching the rumors so far, it's an easy guess who it'll be.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars - Joe the Condor gameplay

Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom Zero Gameplay

In the end, very surprised they didn't work in Speed Racer or... anyone more familiar to international audiences on the Tatsunoko side, but there's still TvC2.
