and on a personal note, i myself don't want to see shit like this.

And you would have had the option not to buy it.

As a noob, and a guy who has NO issues with SNK Playmore (SNK was dead before I ever got into the scene), AND as someone who pre-ordered SSVS, I feel that I have been misled, and have NOT been sold the game as it was advertised.

The Neo AES is the Arcade at home. SSVS may be the first tiltle in history where this is not the case.

I have been misled.

after reading the back of the box insert, which clearly mentions the "overkill moves" i can see your point about being missled.

but the fact still remains, that this was a response to a troubling event for the japanese. maybe not on the scale of 9/11, but certainly in the same legue as columbine. i can understand the japanese response, and on a personal note, i myself don't want to see shit like this.

It's not like it was a small feature taken out. The game was marketed heavily using the fatalities feature. I think the game even bugs up with that stuff removed... correct me if I am wrong someone...

Playmore doesn't sucks as strong as I thought...

Shit man! I had no idea Playmore has plans to port "This Page Can Not Be Displayed" to the Gamecube. Perhaps there's some life left in 'em after all...

Yeah, they will port it, but it will be japanese only, and the font color will be white.

Hopefully they leave in the part about clicking the refresh button. It's my favorite.

Are you crazy? Children are killing each other like crazy in Japan because of it.

I believe that remains to be proven. Don't get me wrong though, I still feel terrible about that little girl who got her refresh button clicked by that Playmore-obsessed pre-teen in Osaka

Damn japanese Neo freaks. That's all their fault. That girl will never be the same.

Some girl near here got stabbed like 40 times and had her PS2 stolen. They must have been after the port.

Apparently some taintlicker voted in the poll, but there's certainly no good reason why it was bumped. I think the outcome is fairly obvious. :spock:

They're too young to get cut...

That is ridiculous; its just a video game.


galfordo said:
...but definitely not too young to be sold to 65 yr. old Japanese businessmen. Oh, and their panties can be sold in vending machines - of course that's perfectly healthy. :oh_no:

That is just sad. Absolutely nothing healthy about it.

Oh, and jacking off to anime porn = WTF??!?!?? :rolleyes: :oh_no:

serious relationship with another human being > hentai anime > real pornography

There is a fine line between fantasy and reality.



PS: I was very close to saying "Fuck it" and not post anything.

The decision to remove the fatalities was deceptive, irresponsible, and unnecessary - AND SNKP should take some corrective measure.

i don't even care about them, but the principleis plain: neo geo iis a home arcade and as such nothing should change.

Playmore is no SNK, never has been and never will be.

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.



That is EXACTLY what I was trying to articulate in my "what a waste " thread. Thank you SOO MUCH-I couldn't quite put it into words why the decision to censor both SS5 and SSTK offended me so deeply.....You hit it right on the head, man. Right ON!!!!!! :buttrock:
