    Post SNKP's Removal of Fatalities .... justified?

    It seems pretty obvious what the general feeling about this is - but personally, I'd just like to get a look at the numbers, since I have seen a few dissenting posts.

    justified...NO

    giving absolutely no notification to the customer base...INSULT TO INJURY

    when pressed, vaguely mentioning violence complaints as the reasoning...COWARDLY

    The people who preordered got sucker punched by false advertising.

    just sounds like the fairy story that is SNK

    they normally mess most things up - how they lasted so long is still a mystery to me

    As other have said before...

    This really could have made this one of the best Sam Sho's ever...

    I feel it is sorely missed... especially after seeing pix of what we're missing out on.

    consider me raving lunatic foaming at the mouth not shaving in months incoherently blasting Playmore for being a playwhore. I'll take a page out of merc's book: looks like a motherfucking soccer mom is running the company now.

    What really puzzles me is that the quarter carrying youth have access to the fatalities in the arcade but the cartridge purchasing adult (for teh most part) gets slapped with the censor. I mean,it just does'nt make sense... A child can get ahold of a couple of bucks to play in the arcade before they would even think about shelling out 370 shipped for one cartridge that needs a 200 system to operate in. What was the whole violence level thing for???
    This whole philosophy of,WE CENSOR IT,while you PAY FOR IT is just absurd
    Anybody here under the age of eighteen,please don't get upset as I have much respect for anyone realizing how great of a system te Neo geo truely is.

    I've made my opinion known on page 11 of the big thread, this is unjustified mainly because those who would have been offended by the fatalities would not buy the game in the first place.

    I was lied to, I bought the game for the one aspect that was removed.

    I was a victim of false advertising.

    I am mad about the absense of fatalities. It is 2004 and the industry is crawling with gory games like Manhunt and GTA yet Playmore finds the need to edit out some cartoony looking fatalities for a game in the niche market that not many will play in the first place?

    If there indeed are fatalities in the MVS version like some people are saying I find it downright hilarious. Playmore edits the AES version which most people will never even witness being played but they don't edit the arcade version which will most likely be seen by and offend many more little kids and mothers strolling along in the arcade. Plain stupidity.

    Everybody speak about censorship but do you really know if it was made on this purpose? It wouldn't be the first time that SNK put something on the cartdrige that you don't see when you play ( MS serie for example)

    correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first time they
    advertised a feature of a game, showing screenshots
    and movies, that in the end is not available during gameplay.
    that's a bit different to MS...

    Well they did originally advertise a ton more characters to be playable for Sengoku 3, but that was understandably missing considering that they were about to go out of business...
