Darkstalkers/Vampire series General Discussion

OK I guess this one went over my head. What’s the joke here?


#123

need money for it to happen!


#124

that’s money BB_Hood’s holding? Always thought it was sheets of paper. Like wanted posters of Darkstalkers she has hunted or something.


#125

No one played the games when they first came out and all capcom did was waste time remaking them. This is actually good news.


#126

She says “Kore dake?! Shiketeru wa ne!” Which is something like “Is that all!? Not a great catch!” So yeah, it’s money. Apparently not enough for her liking, though.

From what I hear, they got a decent amount of play in Japan back when they were new. Hunter is where Daigo first made a name for himself, after all. Poor handling of the series by Capcom led to its popularity falling off fairly rapidly though.

One more thing to add: Vampire Hunter has been among Mikado’s most profitable games at least two months this year. Last month it even beat out Third Strike.

I meant here in the US. No one ever played VS in the 90s, I never saw a crowd of people around the game. In fact, i saw more random VS cabs at rest stops along I-95 than i saw in arcades.


#128

TKO has been pushing that game hard. He was even asking players to sign up for his Hunter tournament at Judgement Day 2.


#129

Yeah, I’ve been reading his Twitter. That guy seriously loves that game.


#130

I wouldn’t be surprised If he donated a few of his boards as well. I know he let them borrow his Muscle Bomber board awhile back for a tournament.


#131

Sounds like a damn good news to me. Someone name the last decent Capcom fighter you’ve played (at least a 6 out of 10)?

Even when SRK asked people what fighters were good, most people said everything but any of the Capcom games. Hell, I don’t think I ever heard a major competitor actually praise SFIV or MVC3. I’ve heard more good things outta SFxT. Sad, but true. If you ask me, the series was spared from a nonsensically gruesome murder. Be damn thankful for that.

It’s actually alot like the Chicago Cubs or Bears.


#132

I have to give AE2012 a score of at least that much. I don’t like the design or the movement but it’s good enough a game. No sense in playing an okay game when there’s half a dozen great ones asking for attention though :stuck_out_tongue:


#133

That’s cause SFXT is a better game than either. Has a lot of problems, but it actually has a real good footsies game.


#134

Where and when was that?


#135

^
Some article on the front page about a year ago, asking you people a bunch of random fighting game questions.

Turns out, people really liked KOFXIII, Blazblue, and Guilty Gear.


#136

It’s funny how people say this game or that game is really good and never play them.


#137

Sad truth is, compared to other competitive gamin genres, nobody plays anything in the fightin’ game genre. There’s just so much disunity. I mean, Capcom is literally extortin’ Darkstalker fans at this point and the only people who thinks this shit is crazy are people who wanna see a DS4.

I truly think Capcom would fuck up a new Darkstalkers in the worst way but I mean, c’mon, you’re extortin’ these guys. 'Real slimy shit.


#138

For anyone who doesn’t have it, Darkstalkers Resurrection is half off on PSN right now.

I bet they play them, but they just cant make it out to tournaments or STREAMED meetups.
