Well, Laia's a beast, not a newman.  Newmans tend to be more gentle, usually extremely fair and frail.  To revive others, I think you use a Moon Atomizer.  The "art," if you want to call it that, is simply stills made using the in-game models from Universe and Ambition of the Illuminus.  All in all, it's a low-rent package for fans only.   Sega could have done so much more, but then again, I find myself saying that with alarming frequency regarding those guys.

That game looks so... WRONG.... :P

With the exception of Blanka, I thought the English voice work was outstanding.  It's just too bad that most are probably not going to even give it a shot, out of prejucice or some perverse form of elitism.

Yeah, this game looks way too horrible.

Elk - Now see, THAT criticism I can agree with.  There's simply no excuse for that.

Remember, these are emulated games, not reworked ports like what you see on XBLA, which are designed mainly for online play.  Reworking them all for online play would cost too much, and the alternative - Kaillera-style jury-rigging - would SUCK.

Lolwut - Indeed.  Also, while the arcade Space Harrier is kind of whaked auto-wise, the Genesis and Master System games are SPOT-ON.

thiago - Hell, they look better than they did on SD TVs back in the day.  The Genesis was HELLA grainy, especially when looked at side-to-side versus the SNES.  Even with the filter off, it's clear Sega was using Bilinear filtering at the least (The turned-on filter is clearly 2xSai, which is shit).

I have both this and the 360 game.  Very sexy, very shameless, very awesome.

I'm with Snipper 138.  That was awesome.  Best line: "Why are you playing as Sephiroth?"

Seriously guys, you need to do even more of these bad game rips.

Yeah, saying that he's doing it wrong is being rather kind.  Nintendo is, as Gerstmann pointed out a few Bomcasts back, VERY peculiar with who they will and won't deal with.  Acting like a fucking nutjob will NOT get you noticed.

I've always viewed digital distribution much like hydrogen fuel - It's the wave of the future, but will never be the present.  As you mentioned, Steam is incredibly niche.  At the hardcore level, we gamers like our shiny discs, printed manuals and all the things that come with physical copies.  At the casual level, as you mentioned, digital distribution renders the product invisible, much like equipping a Gamestop with thermoptic camouflage.

Also, games (and movies) continue taking more and more data.  Metal Gear Solid 4 uses all 50 gigs of a double layer blu-ray, and there are already quad-layer, 200GB Blu-Rays out on the market.  None of the digital services offer true high-def video (XBL Marketplace movies are compressed).  Then we have ISPs like Comcast throttling bandwidth which, while not an issue now, can become an issue down the road when DVD is phased out entirely for games and 200GB Blu-Rays for PS4 become the norm.  And don't get me started on holographic disc.
