If any of you were thinking about getting Azure Blaster Gunvolt, there is a special bonus. Buy the game before November 28th and receive the 8-bit throwback Mighty Gunvolt for free.



I'm confused.  So basically if we don't buy Azure Striker Gunvolt before Nov 28th, we will never be able to get Mighty Gunvolt?

 

Mighty Gunvolt is really just a 20 minute mini-game (though a pretty awesome-looking one), and I don't want to miss out on it, but...  I am a cheapass.  I would like Azure Striker Gunvolt, but I figured I'd wait a while.

While we're reminiscing about SF games being released, I remember getting SFIITurbo and playing it for hours and hours. I was blown away by all the extra content.

When Alpha 2 came out, it was almost $80 in stores. The chip used for the animations to get it on the SNES was expensive to produce. You kids don't know how good you have it with market-wide standard MSRPs.

I had to consult wikipedia about the SNES Alpha 2.  Yes, apparently it used a special chip for "on the fly graphic decompression."  Wow!  I guess this allowed them to compress the animation into a smaller cart size (maybe the SNES had a max ROM size).  I bet this was one of the only carts with "load times" (to decompress in this case).

 

By the time of the Alphas, I already had a Playstation and bought them on that.  I've always been terrible at fighting games, but back then, I didn't realize I was terrible and still had fun.

I can attest to the peeing of the pants. I was 12 when that came out and it was amazing, but was also bittersweet. During one of our playthroughs, one of my buddies said, "With home games looking this good, what do you think will happen to all the arcades?"

That is a bit sad...  I think I was a little younger, maybe 10, and when I read about it in Nintendo Power, I was so psyched I actually sought out a coin-op and played it in preparation.  Found one down the hill at a run down shopping mall that only had a grocery store and a few junky stores (and now it's just the grocery store and offices... and the DMV).  I think arcades had already begun to close, vanish, and turn into games where you win tickets and buy junk, but home versions of games like SFII probably were the nail in the coffin.

Finally a Phoenix Wright sale! Now we just need the Pokemon TCG.

I gave up and bought a Game Boy Color and Pokemon TCG.  Wish I never would have gotten rid of all my old stuff in the first place.  (Rebought the Dragon Warrior games and a few others, too, and luckily my brother had been hoarding some of my old GBA games, though others are missing in action.  /life-story)
