  • “Screw effort, we’ll just lazily port these 2 games that can already be bought on PSN!”

    • they don’t have online mode, they are ports of the PS1 which both have frame issues, they are not HD and although I hate capcom now and I can see they are only re-relising their games in order to make money I have to say I been waiting for this one, and in fact the freaking lagged it

    •  As Pedro said, these aren’t just ports like those on PSN.  These are being given the same treatment as Street Fighter III: Third Strike and the recent Marvel vs. Capcom Origins release.  And I’m willing to bet that unlike the PSN versions, this compilation will use the original arcade ROMs.

    • You know what “the same treatmeant as SF3:3S and MvCO” means, right? It means that this work is ALREADY DONE. They just have to make sure GGPO works with these games and make new menus (which doesn’t actually require any meaningful amount of work)  and that’s about it

      Which means: no effort. Fuck people don’t ever bother fucking thinking.

    • I’m pretty sure you’re the one who has no idea what you’re talking about if you think you can just slap GGPO on the back-end and call it a day.

  • night warriors darkstalker revenge was never for ps1, but its story is included in psp dark tower
