I had been trying to figure out something that would make for a good video when a random trip to a game shop out of the way found me the curious little item on the left; can you spot the differences?

DOA Fan: I'll have to take a look later on to see if that shop still has its copy then. Forgot that this particular title and its protagonist moved so very slowly.

Paid over $20 CAN for it; sad part is I found another copy for cheaper a day or two later.

Bubble Bobble? Nice pick indeed. Recall that Simpsons game being a bit of a pain though, but it has been a long time since I played it.



Some of the things picked up while checking out a few stores that were out of the way for me. Not pictured but also recently acquired was a backlit GBA SP unit to play some of the GBC carts I had from before, and to help save my eyes from the strain that is trying to play off an original grey brick Game Boy unit!

Because really, we all need for live action Sega ninjas in our lives. Auction said used, but the wrap on the unopened package may very well have been the original as it still had a Japanese UPC code attached to it.

Addressing the upper torso only, it's actually still got a few kinks that need to be worked out; pectoral muscles do not line up with shoulder positioning and shading makes them and abdominal area visually flat. Indentations indicating where clavicles are do not appear to be drawn in this frame, which would help line things up a bit with pectoral muscles. Artist's left shoulder is outright missing, as it would still be visible with the implied foreshortening. Hand positions and face don't match with image being referenced.

http://callmemra.deviantart.com/art/Reference-Edit-Shin-Gouki-pose-490249634 <- Made an edit with most of the above things having been touched up in some way. Shading will need to likely be fixed to better match sprites, but hopefully still helps a bit.

I believe that would be because that frame is not his, but an edit by TDS made years ago for reference.

No, because at least MM Soccer has the slight excuse of being rushed out for being half-baked; what sort of excuse does X7 have?

Most of my retro collections are cart based games, although Saturn games have recently been added to the mix. Currently waiting for a few mail parcels now for some interesting picks.

My boxed copy of Mega Man Soccer is offended by your statement.

A boxed copy obtained for cheap because seriously, it's Mega Man Soccer. Not a huge demand.

Tying up loose ends before getting to Cat-themed Miscreant questions:

I couldn't come up with any clever ninja-related questions for Rolento, and this is totally not an excuse for being too late, so in that case, what is your explanation to the contradiction as to why the best ninja are the most flashy or brightly colored?

Because to get away with being so flashy and clearly visible, they have to be good. Why else do you think most ninjas that appear in games rarely actually use any degree of stealth or camouflage? In addition to the obvious gameplay related reasons, it's to advertise their supreme level of skill.

As for the Andore clan, I personally assume a degree of cloning is involved. Rather than stormtroopers or super soldiers though, we got German wrestlers. Go figure.

As for the questions for Iced:
- Did you by any chance keep a copy of D: ? I forgot to before Messenger closed down, and I miss that smiley.
- Why is it every time you start a conversation, this theme starts playing in the background?

- Favorite Godzilla film? Additionally, have you seen the newest one?

Took some time, but no issues installing. Perhaps specific disk based issues?

Coding not particular scary, just involved a bit more referencing if anything. Also recall things like MCM being around fairly early for sff stuff, would not be till some time later that it got clsn related functions although anyone who tried that version knew how wonky that tended to be.

As the number of questions has dried up and this is my last day anyway, the time has come to pick the next person for the thread... someone who has much to answer for...

Or I can pick Caddie. That works too... how does the Notify User thing work in this blasted format? .\/.

What ever was of the plans to revive Mad Gear? Are you still offering Dental Plan for all new recruits? Why should I join the Mad Gear gang, and not other gangs?

Mayor Haggar happened, on multiple occasions. I think he just wanders the Earth, piledriving people at this point and to the misfortune of any gangs he happens to come across. Funding just ran dry after a certain point, so things are postponed until a new source of revenue can be figured out. Sadly, repeated Kickstarter attempts all got taken down too. In hindsight, the matching costumes and general color schemes may have been our downfall in terms of how Haggar kept finding us. Huh.

Good company, good food and drink, and some degree of personal security in the long run. Also, revenge. Lots and lots of revenge.

Regarding Winmugen, was specifically referring to how the RouHei Winmugen leak ended up going public and not why the build stopped being worked on as a whole. I cannot even remember all the specifics at this point.

And what is your opinion on Lord Raptor's party shark, and should he have it as an assist?
The shark seems alright, but hard pressed to suggest as a reference as I don't think many would even remember this tv series. Was it even shown outside of North America?

If you were to make someone from Shaq Fu look good, who would it be?
I can only vaguely remember a mummy design of some sort aside from Shaq himself. Don't have a good answer for this.

- Is the Suave Dude project stopped/on hold? I read somewhere walt commissioned you to do those frames, but nothing else.
The initial Suave Dude frames were indeed commissioned; the initial bit was for sufficient frames for a punching bag, but I do intend to continue it myself. I've just been preoccupied by some other things for the past while.

- Do you have an original project in mind regarding sprites and/or codes (like creating original character for your own story)?
If you mean using Mugen as an engine, then not at this moment. Regarding somewhere else, I cannot answer that at this time; let's say the equivalent of an Non Disclosure Agreement applies here.

- If yes, is it something involving ninjas? :P
See previous answer. Sorry, really cannot say anything.

- Are you going to update your SFIV KFM? I'm seeing a lot of good animations in your dA gallery.
Those animations are open-source, but in case you were not aware, I wasn't the only one who made a SF4KFM; Kamekaze actually took that build and made a number of coding and gameplay style fixes, which made his take the more definitive version.

- How many languages can you speak? Which ones?
My primary language at this point is English. I used to be able to speak Spanish while I was younger, but I half-jokingly say if anyone asks that because of ESL classes back around when my family moved here, I picked up English so well that I basically forgot how to speak my original language. Still can understand most of it, but my own pronunciation is horrid.

- Who are your favourite spriters?
Kiwi's high on the list even though he doesn't seem to visibly do much anymore, Judas and Diepod do a lot of fun stuff still, Felo can do some nice stuff, Li Kun's sprites went to use with Morrigan although I can't make heads or tails as to where the final version of her sprites went around here...

-Why is everyone asking shitty questions unrelated to you?
In some cases, I figure just because they probably don't know much about who I am since I can't say I've been overly present in more recent times. In some others like Titiln, it's probably because I've known the person to some degree for such a long time it's hard to think of a more relevant question they don't already know the answer to. Hah.

-I don't know why, but I remember you from the old Dev Days as one really ruthless admin, having no mercy with people making mistakes. Do you think that still stands today? You think you became softer with the passing years? (of course not the admin part, you are not an admin anymore)
The short answer is I've probably mellowed out a lot since back then. Also, odds are a lot of the more ruthless things mentioned are probably just attributed to me rather than things I actually did myself. I was probably the most visible administrator at the time, which didn't help matters.

Did you see pictures of Jennifer Lawrence's roast beef lips?
I actually just had to look up who that was on Google. I believe that should answer your question. I suppose this sort of thing seems appropriate considering that one of the questions just before this one asked why all the crappy questions! Begs a good question though in return; just what was going through the mind of the person who first made this comparison between genitalia and foodstuff? Was this from the mind of someone who was hungry both figuratively and literally? Perhaps.

What's the best DIY way to get dents out of the hood of my car?
Not my area of expertise, but I'd have to assume trying to hammer it back out using a series of lighter strikes and a hammer/mallet that has a rounded face to it as to not put hard edges onto the surface you want to fix. If you could have something on the other side that had a surface to brace against, might help I suppose.

Would u punch your mother as hard as you can in the face for $1000?
No out of principle for one, and second that's not even a lot of money.

- WOULD YOU METAL GEAR REX PLEASE?
Metal Gear?!

I did find some psd files related to it the other day. The anti aliasing and gradients the person used on this thing hurts my soul.

Why you gotta be tugging on people's eyebrows like that? That would be painful, sir!

There's also an age gap to consider, but at least at this time based on photos I had to look up as quite frankly I can't say I knew who either were off the top of my head, it appears that Connelly's brows have aged better at this point in time while Shields' have thinned out a bit over the years around the edges.

Now that you mention it, I wonder if that Worbla stuff would be used as a lighter weight alternative material to handle some of the larger aspects of the costume. The shoulder pads on the original were absolutely huge and in the board I was using at the time added a significant amount of weight. If that's the case, maybe I could even use it to some degree for the Soul Calibur IV era Soul Edge I still have the drawn out blueprints for...
