    So here we have a game which has been proven to work with GGPO over the course of several years being resold by a company which has been allowed to use GGPO.

    I predict that rather than use it this port will have it's own netcode developed with input delay so bad the stuff you attempt to do in the first round comes out in the second. (This may be an exaggeration, but I'm sure you catch my drift)

    Considering it's being done by Iron Galaxy who has put GGPO in their last two rereleases AND has notably improved with said implementation (plus after getting lambasted about 3SOE, has made personal strides to try and redeem themselves to everyone out of their own pocket), I really don't see the point of said exaggeration.

    Confused..............

    Is Darkstalkers Resurrection the only Darkstalkers game coming out?

    WTF is "Darkstalkers is not dead"............is it a brand new game?

    Are the frontpage scribblers being stupid again?

    Yeah, my bad, saw GGPO mentioned in the other article, had just assumed it hadn't been confirmed after seeing no sign of it in the SRK front page article or the trailer.

    Well thankfully, we're at the point where we already knew it was in when it was announced.

    I wonder if Pyron, Huitzil and Donovan will be unlockable in Savior. It looks like they aren't there by default.

    If everyone else could move upwards socially, so can blacks. They are just dumb.
    "This comparison ignores the unique history of discrimination against Black people in America. Over the past four centuries, Black history has included nearly 250 years of slavery, 100 years of legalized discrimination, and only 50 years of anything else. Jews and Asians, on the other hand, are populations that immigrated to North America and included doctors, lawyers, professors, and entrepreneurs among their ranks. Moreover, European Jews are able to function as part of the White majority. To expect Blacks to show the same upward mobility as Jews and Asians is to deny the historical and social reality that Black people face."

    Probably testing the waters for DS4 or something to gauge people's interest, wasn't MvC2 re-released on XBLA for the same reason? Either way, likely purchase from me.

    It's just a marketing ruse DS4 is still being developed despite the sells of this. If resurrection with poor art sells well they'll use it as part of their pr.

    I don't understand the animosity for capcom rerelasing their classics on next gen console. It seems Arksy is doing the same with GG series and its being well receive from time I last check.

    Ono on stream claiming that they didn't use the PS2 version as a base for the port, that they are arcade ports all the way. That's great...but the PS2 versions were pretty amazing.

    And they had input display.

    At any rate this is really cool news.

    The ps2 version was a specialized emulator to allows more data then what is possible on a cps2 the patches are just another rom. With an audio system by Criware (yes Adx files)

    MvC:O should be proof enough that they can use the original CPS2 arcade ROMs for these things.

    For those wondering, MvC:O, for all intents and purposes, is just emulating the old ROMs and uses "cheats" to implement online, versus and training modes.

    On thing that does worry me though, something somewhat related to MvC:O, is if people will actually play this shizz online. I mentioned MvC:O because, it seems that no one plays MSH online. What more these games where even the GGPO community is pretty small.

    Removal of air chains, some hitbox tweaks, recolored stages, addition of Donovan/Huitzil/Pyro with removal of Sasquatch/Fish/Talbain, universal Dark Force, universal endings for all characters sans Jedah. There's more but the more knowledgeable here can fill that in. Removal of air chains is the biggest change.
    Damn that is some horrible art. I have no words on how ugly that is.
    Hopefully whoever was on that isn't doing the official art for everything else. I can already tell LeiLei looks messed up. Also doesn't feel very Vampire at all.

    I'm happy about this, I only have chaos tower for the psp, and my psp broke (and is less than ideal for the controls anyway), so i'll need the replacement. Hopefully it will lead to a ds4, and if that turns out awesome, sweet, if not I can just go back and play this. Win/win for me.

    Darkstalkers 3=Vampire Savior, so it's an entirely different game from the first two.
    Vampire Savior 2 is the exact same game and roster, just with some cosmetic changes and balances and nerfs (see: Alpha 2 Gold)

    Savior 2 was a Japan-only "rebalance" along the lines of Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha. There were some system changes, notably the removal of midair chains, and the Dark Force system becoming completely different. But the most apparent difference was in the roster: Savior 2 lost Talbain, Rikuo, and Sasquatch but gained Pyron, Huitzil, and Donovan. Furthermore, a separate game was released at the same time called Vampire Hunter 2. Which, despite the title, was identical to Savior 2 except that it had the same characters as Night Warriors/Vampire Hunter. Savior 2 and Hunter 2 were basically 2 halves of the same game, released seperately because the CPS2 board didn't have enough graphics memory for all 18 characters at once. They pretty much died instantly, not only due to the awkward "2 separate games" situation, but also because no one liked the system and balance changes. Later, the console ports of Vampire Savior/Darkstalkers 3 would include all 18 characters, as well as some of the Savior 2/Hunter 2 systems as alternate settings.

    Ah, I see. The best Capcom fighter ever made/the best fighter no one has ever played. They did say some shit about SFxT so my beginning assumption was not "incorrect", perse.

    This was bought the moment I seen it. Don't even bother with the new game, this will do!

    Instead I predict someone will come in this thread and start being snotty towards anyone who likes the game and is happy to see it rereleased but doesn't main game it and spend all their time waiting around the Darkstalkers lobby in GGPO right now.

    Vampire Savior. It actually gets regular tournament play, Savior 2 only gets novelty tourney play about once a year.

    I like Iron Galaxy, and I like the work that they've done.

    Unfortunately I don't feel like buying a re-release. I've been playing the game on the PS2 and in tournaments for a while and all I see this is gauging interest for a new Darkstalkers, which I'm not excited for in the slightest. I will hold no malice to anyone else who is excited for such a thing, or Ono and crew to get on it right away but I don't want to have any part of it. The thought of DS in a SF4 art style (whatever that means) doesn't sound enticing in the slightest and I am not hype to go through 4 revisions or dealing with some dumb universal gimmick.

    Have fun.

    Because they've been playing and supporting the scene for years for free, grinding it out day after day with absolutely no acknowledgement from Capcom, and barely anyone else and now suddenly people start riding the Darkstalkers train to look legit and now they have to pay $20 just to continue something they already do or invade another game's room which considering what happened with MvC1, I doubt they'd do.

    i only watched the stream on a small window so didnt see the artwork in high res or anything but i thought it looked pretty good. there was a lot of the 3rd strike OE art that i thought was really bad though, is it the same artist?
