To celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the world’s most popular video game series of all time, Capcom has announced the ultimate tribute to the Street Fighter arcade legacy in the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC coming in May 2018. The collection highlights the series’ past in this anthology of 12 iconic titles with arcade-perfect balancing, including the original Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

Players will be able to take the fight online in four of the classic titles for even more gameplay options, including Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Players can recreate the classic arcade gaming experience by competing against the CPU while waiting for friends in online battles where they can put their fighting skills to the ultimate test. Lobbies support up to four players waiting to climb up the ranks through Ranked Matches. Each title will also have their own Global leaderboards and the “rewind” tech ensures low-latency online battles.

With the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, fans can re-visit historic moments from the series, including the introduction of two of gaming’s most famous heroes - Ryu and Ken in the original Street Fighter, and explore the timeline of events that helped create one of the world’s leading fighting game series. Fans can take a walk down memory lane in the Museum and view stunning pieces of concept art, scroll through character bios and uncover little known facts behind each game release with an interactive timeline. Audiophiles can also sit back and relax while listening to the most memorable Street Fighter tunes in the Music Player.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will have a simultaneous release in May 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC both digitally and at retail (console versions only).

So anyone going to bite at this?  Or shall we wait for a Ultra Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection?  =P

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team (Red/Blue) for GBA & DS

05 December 2017 - 06:17 AM



Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team (or just simply known by the fan nickname, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 1) is the game that started up the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon spin-off.  It came in two versions, Red Rescue Team for Game Boy Advance and Blue Rescue Team for Nintendo DS.  This is the game that started many of the elements found or even played with in later installments in the PMD series.  Rescue Team isn't as popular as the Explorers games (namely Sky), but it still has fans as both Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team are available on Wii U Virtual Console.


The PMD series starts off:  You play as a human turned Pokémon with no memory of what happened to you or who you used to be outside your name.  You then meet your Pokémon partner and then set off on adventures trying to figure out what happened to you, figure out who you used to be, and as that mission goes on, the world comes under threat of a growing evil that you must stop.  If that sounds familiar, the premise is the same, but some elements are executed differently for each PMD game.


Also the following holds true here too (since Rescue Team started it):

The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games are mainly known for their stories instead of gameplay.  The gameplay namely takes the form of three things:

1) You talk to Pokémon in the local town for information, to arm yourself, and then...

2) You're tasked to explore Mystery Dungeons and carry out missions.  These dungeons will change their layouts every time even if you reenter the same Mystery Dungeon.

3) Some Mystery Dungeons have bosses/events you must clear to advance the story.


Now I just started Red Rescue Team following beating Explorers of Sky.  I don't know how much I can post here, but if you were waiting for some pictures, all I can say is some pictures will contain spoilers.  All pics will be linked to (pics captured from Elgato Capture HD) and since this post is getting big, I have to throw everything in a spoiler block even if some pics aren't spoilers.



Capcom Announces Mega Man 11, Re-Releases of X1-X8, and Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 an...

04 December 2017 - 02:00 PM

Today Capcom announced a whole bunch of Mega Man games coming to Xbox One, PS 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC platforms in 2018.


First Mega Man 11, the first new Classic entry since Mega Man 10 during the 7th generation.



It looks to have been styled after Mega Man 8 where Mega Man is animated very smoothly in the Mega Man 11 trailer.  Let's just hope for no shitty voice acting this time.




Not only is there going to be Mega Man 11, Capcom announced all eight of the main Mega Man X games are going to be re-released.  Currently there is no word if this is going to be in a compilation or going to be re-released separately.


People may remember the last time some of the X series was re-released, they were ported badly (outside X1-X3 for Nintendo's Virtual Console).  Let's hope shitty ports are not the case...again.




Last but not least, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 and 2 will be re-released.


For those that want to (re)watch the Capcom livestream that announced all of this, click this:



Capcom also put out a press-release for Mega Man 11 if you'd rather read everything than my summary above:


RUMOR - New Nintendo Direct Coming Before Year's End? (Or Will It Come in Early 2018?)

23 November 2017 - 05:07 PM



Usually if a Nintendo Direct is coming, NCL has to make a new slot available on their ND pages (and if there is something indeed coming, NCL pulls the trigger and orders the Nintendo Direct announcements which forces NoA and NoE to make ND pages for the upcoming direct -- provided if the ND isn't region locked).


So what do you think will happen?  One more ND before the end of the year recapping all the "most haves for the holidays" with maybe a little tease or two for early 2018?  Or will they wait for the actual 2018 to start before bringing a new ND to the table?  Your guess(es) is/are as good as mine.


My guess if it's one more ND before the year's end:

1) They'll recap all the must have holiday titles and bundles of stuff already released or just released.

2) They'll recap AC: Pocket Camp.

3) They finally announce Nintendo Switch rewards on My Nintendo.

4) They tease a The Legend of Zelda mobile spin-off mini-game for 2018 that ties into Breath of the Wild.


If it turns out a new ND for early 2018 instead, then I'll suggest guesses #3 and 4 for this one along with announcing and reannouncing spring stuff for 3DS and Nintendo Switch.

[Post-Release] Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for Mobile (Out Now on iOS and Android!)

22 November 2017 - 06:39 AM



Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is a spin-off entry of the Animal Crossing series that was released on mobile devices on November 21, 2017.  In this spinoff, you play as the role of a camp manager and your task is to make the most awesome/best campsite you possibly can to attract tons of guests to your camp!  However to be able to do some stuff or get stuff, you have to forage for items, talk to villagers and take on their requests, earn Bells, and if you really wanted to, use real-world money to buy Leaf Tickets to help out in various tasks or getting items (though you can still earn Leaf Tickets without spending any real-world dimes).


Plenty of the Animal Crossing experience has made the jump to mobile in that you can do things you could in the AC main series of games (starting with the GameCube original and beyond), so if you've never played any Animal Crossing before, Pocket Camp could possibly be a good demo to the main series (if anyone ends up liking Pocket Camp, I do suggest getting Animal Crossing: New Leaf on 3DS!).


I started up Pocket Camp yesterday evening after the initial traffic surge at the app's launch.  Since I'm starting out, I don't know how I feel about the game just yet.  I'm going to have to play some more before I could give a more accurate review.  I've got some pictures I've taken, but since they are so large vertically, I'm going to have to link to everything.


Apollo is my starting villager (and my villager has a new hair style -- need to get some red glasses though):



Apollo approves of my starting campsite:  http://ngamer01.choz.../files/0002.png


I got Goldie to come visit my starting camp:  http://ngamer01.choz.../files/0003.png


Anyways feel free to talk about anything AC: Pocket Camp here.  I should also mention this mobile game is a part of the 4.x series of AC games (4.x started with New Leaf).
