I'm for Capcom's collections and everything but now they're pissing me off. Come on Capcom give me a new fighter, (and not Capcom Fighting Evolution 2.) I'm sure some of you have heard of a Power Stone Collection for PSP. Kinda dumb since Power Stone only made it to numeral #2, not much of a collection. I do enjoy the collections but only when I don't have the games. Here's a link to some pics:

I can already predict a Rival Schools Collection in the future.

Like I said in the other thread -

A large large portion of gamers have never played Power Stone, or wanted to and never did. This collection is a great idea, because it will get new people in the franchise, its adding new characters to part 1, new weapons in both parts, and adventure mode in part 2, new mini games.... I'd much rather have this then have to bust out the Dreamcast. Who knows, if this sells great, Capcom may actually bust out a Powerstone 3.

I love Powerstone, and I'd rather have upgraded ports then nothing at all.

Thanks for making the thread title something nice, as well, the last thread title was obnoxious.

Heh! Awesome gif!

They really should re-release Project Justice/Rival School on the PSP of something so more people can play it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm for collections, but you have to admit the collections are getting monotonous and well-worn. Now a Capcom Puzzle Collection is coming out. Sooner or later they're gonna run out of things to "collect." I just want something new. Damnit Capcom, you suck!

i personally enjoy the collections, but it's really no "hoowah" for people who already own or have the games. Probably the largest plus about these collections is the fact that they are pretty much perfect ports but on a portable. Playing Power Stone on the bus sure is alot more crazy to think about than playing tetris on the bus. I do hope though that they do brind out a rival schools collection... at least there's been 3 games in that sereis if you include japanese releases. Maybe if they port it to a collection, the US will finally get the creat a character and the rpg/board game mode!

I always wanted to play through the board game in Rival Schools 3. I think it's the only way to create a player. Too bad Capcom got lazy and just decided not to even bother with it when porting. I played like 10 minutes into it and my wife got really tired of translating for me, so that was "game over" for me.

it's not as easy at it would seem. There's alot of time sync and lobby connection and whatnot. Yes it would be awsome to have, but I would rather have more game than more online...

@Rodimus: Didnt rival schools 2 have the board game as well? even the first one? i would be sad if they ported Star Gladiator instead of these :lol:

Because Power Stone and Super Puzzle Fighter are shitty, right? Oh wait, you're just a retard.

Rival Schools 2 did, but since it was all in japanese I never played it too much. I forgot about a Star Gladiator collection, and I'm sure well see one for the PSP in the near future.

Ill ask my question from the last thread, does anyone know if there was supposed to be a poster with the Street Fighter arcade stick or was it just my imagination.

I would shell out good money for a Rival Schools port

I hope they rerelease SC3 with the changes from the arcade version. And hopefully it comes out on the Xbox with online play!

I just wish Sony would get off their high horse and just let SNK release their games ( and collections) over here! :bomb:

All that talk about SCEA's anti-2D/SNK, is it even real? Look at KoF02/03 and Metal Slug 4/5. Could it just be that SNK isn't releasing its games on the US PS2?

Sony wants SNK to release all their games as a bundle pack, since SNK is insitent on charging top dollar for its games.... if they want to do that, they need to bundle, since nobody pays $40 - $50 for SNK games anyways outside of this thread.

I guess SNK got sick of bundling / had nothing to bundle the games with, so they gave up. Talks between the two just fell apart, as well.

Ben Herman, the president of SNK USA, has said that in 2007 they will bring their games out to the ps2 as value games, i.e cheap price and Sony won't care what goes on the system anymore, similar to ps one. I'm willing to wait and see if he'll stay true to his word.

Everything Roufuss said is on the money. To be honest I am glad Microsoft gives SNK love. If it wasn't for the Xbox we might never have gotten the SNK games we do have. The PS2 dominates the Japanese RPG market in North America and the Xbox pretty much dominates the 2D fighting market. It doesn't seem like much now, but true gamers remember who gives them what they want.

We get alot of good stuff from Sony... its just too bad SNK dosen't feel like lowering the prices of their games to bring them out over here, which was the original argument. Sony said "they won't sell at high prices so lower them" and the SNK president of Japan said something along the lines of "they sell for high prices in Japan, we should not have to lower them". That's when talks pretty much broke down.

Now it seems that all the SNK titles come out here on the Xbox for $29.99... I wish talks would open up again between Sony and SNK but it seems like its not meant to be. Maybe when they become value priced we'll see stuff like the Last Blade collection and Garou: MOTW.

I love 2d fighters, but it's hard for me to even stomach paying $30 for one old game with slightly below average graphics, espically when Capcom gives me things like Street Fighter Collection for $30 (and apparently, even that had trouble selling, since they had to lower it to $20).

I agree. I'm not paying $50 for one old KOF game.

Xbox Live functionality is why I don't mind the $30 price tag. I can see why people would want them cheaper on the PS2 since they don't have that.

I totally agree. I like the idea of collections but only for budget prices. I hate when they rerelease games like SFA Alpha for $40. Its a rip off. Dont get me wrong playing these classics on a portable system is great and its also great for the people who have never played these titles. But waht about the people for played both powere stones hours on end. We need a new one. Enough with the collections. Give me a new Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, Powerstone or something. And Capcom Fighting Evolution doesnt count.

If it's online then that's worth a couple extra bucks. That's the reason I got rid of my PS2 fighters and bought them all back on X-Box.

All I want is a 2d fighter with free online play without paying a dime other than for the game itself...

I made my second trip to 8 On The Break on Saturday! There was another tournament event going on, called "Breakdown." Oh man, the hysteria surrounding the MvC 2 machine was unbelievable. I was busy playing UMK3 a few feet away and suddenly this HUGE commotion busts out... I had no idea what was going on but apparently some big upset had just occurred in the tourney. And the commotion continued throughout the next several matches... people literally screaming and jumping up and down, it was nuts!!!! Ha ha this one guy kept jumping around and shouting "Mag-ne-to! Mag-ne-to!" And the whole thing was being recorded on video of course. Seriously you would think you were in the heart of Japan or something... it was deeply touching to see this much enthusiasm for gaming!

Didn't play in any tourneys but I had a ton of fun just watching. I was there to play UMK3, and to my delight the machine was set to free play so I went nuts. Videos of that will be up soon. What's annoying is that, while I had some good performances on tape, I absolutely KICKED ASS every time the camera was down. :-x Ha ha, I had a sweet win against this guy Phi (my one and only win against him) and now only the select few in attendance can vouch for me.:twoguns:

One other cool thing is that I got to see some live joystick surgery. The high kick button was a little off, so Phi and Shock pulled up the control panel and messed around with the switches a bit. That was fascinating to watch! After that everything felt a lot tighter.

Oh and on a side note, the cheese steaks there are great! Awesome price too... only $4 total for the cheese steak, fries, and a drink. :mrgreen:
