:rofl: uh..what ??
what they have "emulation police" at evo or some shit ?? yeah I honestly dont think there is anything illegal about emulators. these games are older than jesus and I think I spend ENOUGH money on street fighter in general(bought legal copy of sfa2 on snes,ps1,saturn and spent shit load of $$ at the arcades too). I think its time I derserve a fucking arcade perfect version :mad: and since capcom wont give it to me..I will play on my modded xbox !
so u are sayin that all of the street fighter alphas on the anthology disc are direct ports of the ps1 versions? So missing animations? hit sparks in alpha3?
WOW, THAT'S CRAZY...I though there were going to be dip switches in the game also like vampire collection...damn, guess it's pointless when they're direct ps1 ports...crap ball animation.
Uhh Capcom stopped caring about theyre fighting game market since late 2002. They're mainly focusing on other projects. My advice..take your favorite SF title and keep playing that otherwise go to something else because if your waiting for "Some Great Thing" from capcom to hit then your wasting your time!
You know what... as much as this makes me upset, I'm going with it anyway. I don't care if your top tier Dhalsim got nerfed, or if your stupid glitchy ass katoobis that weren't really useful (save giefs) got axed. This is THE alpha 3 now. I don't really care. Just play the fucking game instead of bitching for 561864 years that the port got nerfed. Alpha 3 is dead, arcades are dead... the only way any will get any renewed interest is through this collection.
So... death? Or life as a slightly different game?
Capcom might be pulling something shady here. I just watched this interview
at IGN with one of the Capcom developers and he said the Anthology had:
Street Fighter Alpha 1, 2, 3, Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold, and Pocket Fighter. He clearly called them by that name.
So, as you all know, Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold was on PSX in a previous collection. The arcade version was only in Japan and was called Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha, which did not have Cammy unlockable.
Also, Pocket Fighter was called Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix in the U.S. arcade version. The PSX version was called Pocket Fighter.
So, it looks a lot like this guy is right and they have ported over all PSX versions.
This would explain several things:
1) Why there is no Dreamcast/Sega Naomi version (whether you like it or not). They would need to completely port that game to a newer system, unlike here where the PS2 was backwards compatible anyway with the other games already on PSX.
2) Why there is no XBOX version. Again, different hardware than the PSX/PS2.
3) Suspicious also is that they didn't put Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max on there, but they throw in Pocket Fighter which has nothing to do with Alpha. Again, Alpha Max would have had to be ported from a different system.
smashbros ala wii anyone??
Just have to wait and and see if the game is a direct arcade port when it comes out next month, but regardless i'm still buying it.
