I have a question semi related to the stuff on this site. Didn't want to start a new topic so I figured I'd post here. I've been having issues playing videos here on the site as well, so I've been using the Youtube version to push it to Chromecast. But recently the last few quicklooks haven't been posted on youtube, so not sure if you guys are going to stop doing that or just an oversight.

But the other thing is when I'm here on the website, is there a reason you have to be a premium user to highlight and use the Youtube player (under the Quality settings of the player)? I've never understood that.

I'm also confused on these Wii games coming to the Wii-U. Have the been up-converted to play on the Wii-U with the gamepad or pro controller? Or will it go to the Wii menu and you'll be forced to play it with the Wiimote and back down at 480p?


I totally want to buy this and have it on my Wii-U menu and play it on a pro controller. But I'm out if I have to go back to the Wii interface.

The most amazing thing to me about the blindfolded Zelda OOT run was the reason why he decided to learn how to do it in the first place. They meet a guy online who was blind using Text to Speech software to find a way to play the game. They worked out and researched methods along with this guy so he could finish the game (and it sounds like they were able to finally get him through the game and beat it recently). That is just awesome.

@tournamentofhate: @hassun: @starfoxa: I think the other thing that really helped that Relay Race (other than the awesome play and close finish), was the commentating. Not that the other games being played with the people on the couch talking has been bad, but the two commentators talking throughout the run describing the difficulties and what was coming up was great. Too much silence wouldn't of made this as exciting.

Just watched the Ninja Gaiden Relay Race (All 3 NES games played by different players), was AWESOME! Finish was so close and that was a nail biter all the way to the end. WOW! If you didn't catch it live, you have to watch the replay on twitch when it's archived.

We're still alive BABY!

The producer recently sat down with Korean website inven to discuss a fair amount of topics, and talk naturally turned towards his company’s longstanding work on the crossover title. “Tekken x Street Fighter’s base system is already finished,” Harada explained, “but we still have to finish Tekken 7 and its planned updates first.”

Question would be, would hardcore fans be furious if it was Darkstalkers 4 coming out and exclusive to PS4 (knowing how impossible it's been to get that game funded).

Capcom could probably announce DarkStalkers 4 for the Atari 2600 and DarkStaker fans would just be happy to be getting a new one finally.

LOL. Ah man, but I only have a Colecovision. Time to get that Atari attachment for the side of it now.

I don't think they're burning that many bridges. Like people said, Capcom announced earlier in the year they were having issues funding this game, so Sony is probably assisting with this. So it's either this or nothing.

Also the same could of been said about Capcom releasing Dead Rising 3 on Xbox One (and PC) after part 2 was on both PS3 and Xbox 360. Only the hardcore really hold grudges and would hold out.

Fair enough, rather the game get made than not at all. But I don't think it's accurate to compare Street Fighter to Dead rising, seeing as one franchise is only a handful of years old and the other is damn near as old as video games. A fair more than just the hardcore fans will be miffed that it's an exclusive.

You might be right on the lineage of the Street Fighter series. Though I'd be curious what the sales numbers were for Dead Rising 2 compared to Street Fighter 4 (vanilla) sales since they were released around the same time (SF4 was released back in 2009 and Dead Rising 2 in 2010 I think).

Then to see what numbers for Dead Rising 3 were. Might give a good indication of drop off and see how people really re-acted to it going exclusive.

And until we know details about the deal that was made, knowing what other games have done, this might be just a timed thing anyway.

I really hope this isn't true, or at least it's only partially. Making it an exclusive, even for the PS4 (which will likely be the tournament standard thanks to Lab Zero if people actually use their stick driver) is still a poor decision. Capcom is going to burn a lot of bridges quartering off the most beloved fighting game franchise. Also, this seems really out of character for Capcom, announcing a new entry to a series after just updating the last.

I'm going to be realty bummed if they re-sue the ink motif.

The bundle will still be sold right?

Of course it's more expensive than the bubdle! Bundles are always cheaper, that's like half the point!

I don't think you or anyone else have to worry about bundles being discontinued (even if they are eventually) when Day One editions are still being sold on Amazon. And for a whopping 99 cents off right now. Get one today!
