The SE version of Fates was Sold Out by the end of the day it came out in my town :/ Seriously, for 3 games it's a great value. Does anyone know how much the 3rd Campaign is going to cost once it comes out on DLC?

Each route you don't have in Fates will cost $19.99 upon release. The Special Edition truly is a great deal.

Side note: people in Puerto Rico are very much hosed with this game because Gamestop is leaving the Puerto Rican market--so Amazon and Nintendo's eShop are our only options, unless Walmarts in our area also decide to stock it.

I hadn't even heard about the Chun Li controversy. Guess it got overshadowed by all the controversy regarding the issues with its launch. From what I understand, the game really should have come out next month because that's when Capcom will be adding a lot of the features that should have been in there from the start but they had to rush it out for it to eligible for some tournament.

You know that the season pass only includes extra characters? All the missing modes and features will be free once they release them.

The King of Dinosaurs has to be the most refreshing character design I've seen in a while. :)

Hopefully Raiden V comes out on PS4 or if on PC be compatible with 7 or 8.1, I want nothing to do with the spyware OS Windows 10 well unless someone sends me an Enterprise version for free where every offending feature that's a security issue is turned off by default.

I'm actually hearing about it now based on a YT'ber I listen to. I mean...look I wonder who is responsible for what is and what isn't the game. I mean, jeez the craziness is really for the Japanese fans, the Western fans comes second. I mean whatever they do to their characters who really gives a sh*t. Now I'll admit Chun-Li is a great character and she always came off as classy. I mean they've been pandering her for years now. So now they decided to go a little further and it's a controversy. But meanwhile Laura is all over the map. I'm really curious to who is responsible Capcom East of Capcom West.

IMHO, the game industry is becoming a mess now. Folks are screaming about very mundane crap and yet there has hardly been any games released that even take fans back to when the gaming era was good and enjoyable.

A leaked roster had about ten supposedly unfamiliar names, plus the never-before-playable Alice Chrysler. Of course, it didn't have Kasumi Todo or Eiji Kisaragi, so I hope it's not accurate.

Is there any news on Duck King, Blue Mary or that little chap with the claws from KoF '95 who always frightened me? I forget his name through fear.

Not much into Street Fighter nowadays, but when I was younger I always played as Chun Li. So they souped her up, if it is okay to modify Lara Croft from Tomb Raider and Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite to appeal to certain fans, then it should be fair for Street Fighter to modify Chun Li for other fans.

Everything is going to hell as of late especially with Japanese game studios. Lazy ports, rushed titles, unfair copyright claims. It's all there.

The alleged roster comes from a dodgy source. It's consistent with the revelations so far, though, apart from Tizoc's costume and name change. Blue Mary and Duck King are missing, but Choi, the claws dude, is on a team with Chang and a new criminal pal.

I think it's a good measure of priorities if someone is more concerned with rushed, unfinished games than a character having jiggle physics. I don't think you should take anyone seriously if they think boob jiggles are worse for the industry than terrible anti-consumer practices.

I haven't played Street Fighter since the third one, one of the third ones. I play fighting games more casually than competitively, so if it was rushed out to be in some tournament that's unfortunate. Capcom has been adopting Western gaming practices for a while now though so I shouldn't be too surprised they're going the way of Ubisoft and Bethesda.
