It's looking better than before, but still crappy. Sadly I'm not only talking about graphics.

You can gather all of that from non-gameplay screenshots? lol.

But on the other hand, I just made a thread in the other forum about Capcom's outsourcing on this project.. so I regretfully agree.

There's still hope though, a lot of the play test impressions have been favorable enough.

I think its Vega in Europe? :(
Commented on 2008-04-30 23:17:50
No Vega was M.Bison in Europe.
Vega is the Japanese Version

Balrog in europe was M.Bison in Japan (standing for Mike Bison)

These are just M.Bison(Vega) and Sagat

Vega in Europe is Balrog in Japan

Confusing eh ? xD

looks nice though

What ? isnt VEGA the spanish dude ??? what are you guys talking about ??
Commented on 2008-04-30 23:27:14
In Europe, Vega is the spaniard.
(Like me ^^)
Commented on 2008-04-30 23:29:39
Yeah Vega is always the Spaniard I am pretty sure

it was because Capcom was scared of lawsuits.

Mike bison resembles alot to Mike Tyson
and the english board found Vega for the last boss a little weak..

so they changed stuff around, they gave the spaniard the name for vega (because its slick and fast like the character) and they gave the boxer Balrog (because it just screams muscles)
they then gave M.Bison to the Dictator.

Personally i think it's better..the names suite them better like this.
But yeah..
thats how it was i believe

Oh you'd be surprised how much synce knows :S

The art style is starting to grow on me, although I never had a huge problem with it in the first place.

Hopefully it plays well :D

Lol I remember hearing about the M. Bison thing WAY back in a Nintendo Power probably in 1992 or 93...

Honestly, if they fix Chun Li's thumb I'll be positive on the graphics.

Commented on 2008-05-01 13:35:19
despite the art direction it's looking pretty good
Commented on 2008-05-01 17:18:47
Um one thing why is the blood black ? If that is blood. :S
Commented on 2008-05-01 17:36:34
The art style at first I liked but not to a great extent, but these images really do promote the style alot better and am kinda getting the feel for it now, hope it turns out great like many capcom games have done this gen.

About the game

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
