This should probably be moved to Found Releases in that case, unless he gave you the permission to release it as your own. Just a suggestion. At the very least, you should include his name in the title of the topic.

don't understand why anyone would want to see mizoguchi back, he's very generic.

You've just listed a bunch of stuff basically explaining why you're acting a bit spoiled, and owning up to it anyways, so I don't have anything else to add there. Only thing I could say is that the inclusion of "clone characters" is very rarely a corner cutting measure as opposed to extra content that is added at a fraction of the cost of fully fleshed out designs. Budget constraints are set in stone, you're basically only gonna get what's planned out until the DLC hits. Unless the entire game was just one copy of the same character, viewing clone character inclusions as inherently lackluster is myopic. Viewing the game holistically and getting a feel for the development time and effort it takes to create the characters already there should probably give you some perspective on why such entitlement is a major impetus for the crunch culture in game development.



In a hypothetical game with Ryu, Chun Li, Guile, Dictator all of this is fully utilized for 4 distinct character designs. The inclusion of Evil Ryu or some other clone cuts down on a lot of the cost, allowing for the inclusion at less stress to developers. Its basically extra content. When fans complain about how disappointing and lackluster it is that Evil Ryu is included over Zangief or Dhalsim, implying a market demand for more totally original content, you start to see the reason why rushed low quality games and crunch horror stories are a thing. Granted we are talking about Capcom characters, and big studios like Capcom or Nintendo have a lot more resources to work with. I am just using those characters for brevity- to show 4 distinct character designs that take a lot of time and effort to fully realize.

Idk, this is a probably an unpopular opinion for gaming subcultures where entitlement is a big thing, but I tend to subscribe to the idea that fighting games dont need huge rosters to be quality games, especially for smaller studios where the only way to meet expectations within the AAA industry would be crunch.

I mean taking the stance of "if Miyako isnt getting in yet, I'd rather they just not add a character at all" is silly and entitled, but sure, it is an opinion you can have.

If Miyako was not getting into the game already, Maids has nothing to do with it.

this "wasted slot" nonsense has been a meme since the days of smash bros brawl. macaulyn is right, the inclusion of the maid duo didnt stop anyone else from being included, what stopped them was logistical constraints. if you're worried about the diversity of the roster, rather than being upset at pointless things like the inclusion of characters that require little resources, you need to be looking at the bigger picture of how much the studio is capable of. theres not gonna be someone more "unique" if the studio is just logistically incapable of putting in that sort of dev work.

your problem stems from the fact that youre expecting dedicated mugen archive functionality from the search feature of a forum. search algorithms for SMF forums have long been pretty unreliable. they were created without this sort of thing in mind, after all. they don't mesh well at all with the adjustments valodim slapped over it- ie. being able to filter by category. you can sort stuff by character/stage/etc but in the end its still pulling from the same flawed search functionality that services most smf message boards.

this also ties into a larger issue- this is a discussion forum, and was never supposed to be a warehouse for links to specific content. we only recently started genuine archival projects, but these are really just directories to links that we don't maintain (unless we are the authors of said content.)

so i get what you mean, but you're viewing this forum more as an archive for "accessing content" (in your own words) than a discussion space, which is not what it was intended for and not what it can really achieve sadly (as the forum's admin is MIA)

maybe in the future, if the forum migrates, we can see more direct archival and organization of content. but as it stands, this is just a place for discussion.

id be ok if the roster was smaller if it meant they actually update their characters rather than just pasting them from one iteration to the next. this is snore inducing.

What makes you think Tung is too old to fight or dead? In the XIV manga he was looking pretty fit. I'd rather see Takuma than him, though
