ya’ll are not true Darkstalkers fans then. a Darkstalkers fan would not say no to Darkstalkers Resurrection, no matter what previous editions they got. Darkstalkers Resurrection has GGPO online play on PS3, with multiplayer lobbies, spectating, trophies, and more.
you people are probably are part of the pack that emulated the games on PC, and feel entitled to a Darkstalkers 4.
you complain about decade+ old game, **but look at Ultra SF2 whatever it’s called, street fighter fans even bought a Switch for it,
and that basically is just like the 12th rehash of Street Fighter 2, and remilking of HD Remix version **
and while SFV was a wreck, it still made over a million, and there are core Street Fighter fans that appreciate it.
Street Fighter fans are loyal, while Darkstalker fans, well most of them are deserters, nitpickers, and half hearted fans.
despite the bastardization of Street Fighter series, at least the fanbase speaks with their money, and support the series, so
a new edition/generation of Street Fighter could redeem the series, which is better than being abandoned like Rival Schools.
yea a Darkstalkers 4 is overdue, but Darkstalkers Resurrection is better than its predecessors in some ways and people could actually play together online without resorting to PC emulation, which does not nurture the franchise nor capcom’s interests in doing more for the series.
if Darkstalkers profitted as much or more than Street Fighter (like Resident Evil did), we would have gotten a HD Remix, a Darkstalkers 4, Darkstalkers 5, etc.
so the fans are at least 50% to blame for Darkstalkers current status.
and while Capcom is greedy and cheap at times, it takes a generous company to now give out Darkstalkers Resurrection for free on PS3 (which is still widely owned). They didnt have to, but they did.
If there is one good thing Capcom has done, is, even despite the immature and entitlement penny pinchers in the FGC not contributing to Darkstalkers relevance and funding, they still are now giving Darkstalkers Resurrection for free. ASW wouldn’t be that generous, Namco wouldn’t be that generous, even Tecmo wouldn’t give those two full games for free,
and even now, the FGC still takes Darkstalkers for granted. that is messed up.
