i wish theyd dub double zeta. thats the only one im missing for the "amuro vs char" thing (and chars not even in it so...). but given some of the things ive heard about it, its probly best that they dont dub it

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:02 PM)

and im on vacation next week so ill have lots of time to watch all this lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:01 PM)

@zaku ive got war in the pocket on standard dvd already. amazon didnt have it on blu ray. bonus points to it for having character designs by haruhiku mikimoto. and this collecction is only "new" in as much as its new to me on blu ray. ive had burnt dvd copies of it all for years

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 09:44 PM)

Yeah, 00 was pretty good, and I recently watched Build Divers, and found it really fun. Got both limited editions of IBO... still need to watch them...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:30 PM)

00 is also pretty good, basically a refined version of the Wing concept, and IBO is great.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:29 PM)

I'll be the requisite "Build Fighters is actually pretty good" chime in

@  MEDdMI : (24 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

G Gundam was the best. Horse mecha! Piloted by.... a HORSE!

@  ZakuConvoy : (24 April 2019 - 07:31 PM)

I'd probably recommend tracking down 0080 War in the Pocket to go along with your new collection, but you might have enough to watch for right now.

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:53 PM)

G Gundam will likely always rank first for me, as it is the one I find the most fun, but 8th MS was great for being the most "realistic" of the UC stuff.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:17 PM)

the only other gundam series ive watched-which was also the FIRST gundam series i watched-is wing (and ill probly get that on blu ray soon too). i know i havent watched everything tied to it, but the UC is quite enough for me lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:14 PM)

i think 8th team is my favorite, but cant say why. maybe it has something to do with them not being newtypes. i dont particularly like that concept

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:11 PM)

8th M Team, 0083, and Zeta are my favorites of the original timeline. Have yet to watch Origin, but it is loooow on my list, as I never particularly liked Char. Quattro Bajeena was actually kinda cool, though.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 05:49 PM)

so i just did something insane. i bought gundam origin, first gundam, 08th ms team, operation stardust, zeta gundam AND chars counterattack on bluray...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Hollywood stereotypes, eh? Don't get me started on how sheerly unrealistic that can be, and how badly Hollywood loves to stick to them.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:44 PM)

Also, fun fact: To me, Dutch is the language that sounds harsh compared to German.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:37 PM)

Generally, nobody shouts at each other in Germany unless they're either a) morons or b) doing it for comedic effect.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:36 PM)

... based on an outdated way of speaking (I mean, does anyone in the US still speak like Joe Friday?)... which might also have been at least partially a regional thing.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Generally, many native English speakers' primary conception of the German language and its perceived harshness comes from Hollywood movies... created by non-native German speakers, with non-native German actors giving their impression of what they think the German language sounds like...

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:33 PM)

I might be severely biased, but as a native German speaker, I think the perception of the "harsh German language" is at least in part due to a myth created by Hollywood.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 April 2019 - 09:17 PM)

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

Are you a male mantis?

@  Nevermore : (23 April 2019 - 05:20 PM)

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

Well, let's see. I have...

Street Fighter 1: PSP

Street Fighter 2: SNES, PS2, PS3, Wii, 3DS, Switch

Street Fighter 3: PS2

Street Fighter Alpha: PS3...or was it the Vita...one of those PS systems.

Street Fighter Alphs 2: SNES, 3DS

Street Fighter Alpha 3: I think I have it for either the PSP or the Vita...can't remember, but I know I have it.


I'm about to buy them all over again...aren't I? And you know what? If they're arcade perfect ports off ALL off those versions, I think I'm okay with that. That's a lot of Street Fighter.

*sigh* and I just bought Street Fighter II for the Switch. This game kinda rules my life.

Anyone wanna try to recreate EVO Moment 37? I'll even be Chun Li!

I'm tempted by Alpha 3 alone. What version are they gonna use? The one with Ingrid, Maki and Eagle, perhaps?

 

EDIT: Looks like the Arcade version...eh.

 

The PS1 version was the definitive version for me.


Edited by Internet Jesus, 10 December 2017 - 10:18 PM.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I liked the Dreamcast version. Sine it had all the animation and didn't end the game if you lost to Super Bison.

I didn't. I got it. Kinda regret it now knowing that this will be coming out. On the other hand, HD graphics and the digital artbook are nice. And it holds me over until this comes out.

Am I just trying to justify a purchase to feel better about it? Maybe...probably...almost certainly. But it's not like I don't already have tons of versions of Street Fighter II. What's one more? I still plan on nabbing this when it comes out.

You know what I'm really looking forward to? Something I've been missing for a long loooooong time that has not been on any Street Fighter II version I've ever gotten (well, there was the PS2 version that had it as a cinematic extra, but my PS2 was a dust collector even when I first got it and...well...several reasons it doesn't count). I am soooooo looking forward to seeing this again (first 10 seconds):

Surprised Street Fighter 1 is included. It's the first time in years I believe. Think the only other 'port' was for the Turbo Grafx or something.

 

That being said, this series has always been an oddity for me. I like Ryu, I like Ken. I like the world of Street Fighter and will watch the cartoons, anime, movies.

 

But I never play the games.

 

I think I own two in the series. Street Fighter 2 in it's case for the Sega Genesis because I found it for 3 bucks at a thrift store, and Street Fighter Alpha 3 for the PSP because of Ingrid.

 

Last time I touched the series was when a friend left Street Fighter 4 at my house. I played through as Ryu on normal trying to unlock Sakura. Got to the boss, then spent the next couple of hours losing to him. Even got one of my brothers in on it, who is BETTER at fighting games then I am, and both of us tried for another couple of hours with no luck.

 

Put the game down, walked away, didn't look back.

Ah cool. I think the only 'first' game in a series now you can't find on some compilation is House of the Dead. Think the only way to play the original is still to have the expensive Saturn version.

Street Fighter 1 was also included in a Capcom collection for PSP.

https://www.amazon.c...GZSB65HV497TVQ6

Also has Final Fight, Bionic Commando and Strider

I got the digital download. Too bad the PSP's just kinda collecting dust now. The first Street Fighter was...bad. It was reeeeeally bad. But it's also nice to see the history of franchises I've grown to love.

I'm the same. I absolutely suck at fighting games but I dig SF fiction. A lot of it is pure nostalgia because SFII was a big thing when I was at the right age to be into it, but I'll never excel at one of these games. Still, it has a place in my heart. Hanging out with friends in the arcade, then playing at home on the SNES or whatever... anime... the White Wolf RPG...

 

The stuff Udon has been doing for the last few years has been a lot of pretty fun. I suspect it's garbage if you approach it objectively, but I've enjoyed it.
