Ok, not coming near this edition because of:
- Heavily censored version of the movie
- Animated series isn't the Japanese one
The rest I was willing to put up with but $79 is too much for this.
Other than the one time it was put out on DVD when has the uncensored edition seen the light of day? It's OoP now. Sealed copies go for $75 on Amazon, used for $10, or you can buy a stream-only download on Amazon Video for $6.
No one is mentioning the 2 animated SF 4 movies being on there. The first one (focused on Seth vs. Ryu) was only in the original SF IV CE (which ended up being rare on PS3 Blu-Ray) and the 2nd one (focused on Juri) has never been released in the West until this set (originally only in the Japanese-exclusive SSFIV CE.)
And that US animated series? Value has gone up since I sold my copies last fall, it would take you about $55 plus shipping to buy the 2 DVD sets on Amazon currently.
Hey anyone who's listened to my podcasts knows I have cursed Capcom numerous times over the 5 years my show has been on the air, but the hate this set has gotten online from people blows my mind. How many times do people complain these sets are overpriced (and lots of times they are) yet when a quality one comes out all the majority do is trash it? Hey I gave an extra $50 to Capcom b/c my GS manager won't hold a set like that for a price drop and I had to pay in trade ins for it, congrats to those that got it for less. But when it's down to $80 and people keep nit picking it to death?
If it's b/c you already have the games, totally understand. But these extras are awesome and makes me wish more companies gave a crap about truly special editions. 2K for example hasn't put out a quality CE since Bioshock 1, that Max Payne 3 CE is particularly disappointing. Bioware puts out halfway decent CE's but then there's DLC included which is also sold seperately and everyone complains about it.
I'm going to eventually write an article ranking the top 10 CE of the gen, but the list would look something like:
Ys Oath in Felgana
Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky
Mass Effect 3
Yeah that's 11 but I would need to pair it down and seriously dissect it in value, extra quality, and collectibility.
