if you’re getting into AH, you’re better off getting AH1 since AH2 port is lolshit. The scene’s pretty divided overall (I mean players’s locations and whatnot.) I just know most in the AH thread are in places like Chicago/New York/Florida/Texas/possibly canada. If you want to at least try it out, get AH1. Don’t even need to import now since it was released here. at least you’ll get the basics down.
for Darkstalkers, stick with Vampire Savoir and Vampire hunter. My only gripe is how there isn’t 1 game up to date (arcadewise.) with ALL the cast. Everyone else pretty much answered the MB bit.
