Revisions rejected by the community


I get the feeling that this may have been done before and if so lock this thread.

How many times has a community rejected a new version of a game? It seems to happen to Capcom a lot:

Alpha 2 Gold
Alpha 3 Upper
Marvel Superheroes vs Street Fighter
ST Anniversary Edition

And if we’re counting console ports

3rd Strike Dreamcast

I can’t think of too many other companies dealing with this but interestingly Mexico has rejected both of the KOF UM titles and China/HK still prefers KOF97 over 98.


with 3s I think it’s both 990608 revision and Dreamcast, both of which are different IIRC and no one wants to play on either of them.

I don’t think AE was rejected. people liked SSF4 more but at this point people play whatever Capcom gives them.


Truth! (at least when it comes to Marvel and Street Fighter)


I remember reading that a lot of top players stopped playing AE for several months and decided to just wait for the 2012 patch. I believe Justin Wong was among them.

Tell that to Cross Tekken.


they still play Cross Tekken!


Besides SFIV and MVC3, what gets MORE play than SFxT?


Vampire Hunter 2/Vampire Savior 2 were pretty much dead on arrival. People kept playing the original Vampire Savior.


Every patch of BBB1st after 1.03.


Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3


That’s in China only. Hong Kong arcades almost EXCLUSIVELY run 2002 and 2002UM machines. I rarely see a 98/98UM cab here, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 97.


Tekken Tag 2, possibly Injustice soon…
Not many people really play SFxT much anymore. It’s the CvS2 of this generation… only CvS2 is a great fighter.

A3 Max
Samurai Showdown 3 and 6
King of Fighters… A lot of them, which is why most KoF players stick with 98, 2k2, and 2k2UM. I think MadKOF went back to 2k2. 13’s a great game, but sorta derpy with the HD stuff… The game is essentially “first hit > combo video > rinse wash repeat”


SFxT pre-patch deserves all the hate it can get.

SFxT v.2013 is better than both UMvC3 and SSFIV.


I agree with this entirely, but being better than those two doesn’t make it a great game…
I mean, I’d rather play half of these “rejected revisions” than either of those.
At least in the rejected 3S, still got Chun.




The truth hurts, doesn’t it? Well, not me.


No, I think the serious players loved that lol
Before MK9, it was the go-to tourney MK game.


It’s more fundamentally sound. You got proper footsies going on and none of this 50-50 vortex shit.


People love UMK3. Mortal Kombat Trilogy, that’s the one that got rejected.


I was just joking around. I haven’t played SFIV since Super, haven’t touched MVC3 since 2011, and I have never once played SFxT. I just know it’s okay to hate on SFxT and had thought your comment was going to prompt a turd-storm from the masses.


Was Super Street Fighter II The New Challengers rejected at one point?
