Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

So I saw this. I was wondering if this only if you preorder the digital? I looked on Amazon at physical copy but I'm confused.

Pre-order Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and receive a digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter IV after your purchase and receipt of Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Your Ultra Street Fighter IV digital copy will be available in your library within two weeks after Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collectionís launch day.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

With this game around the corner, and no special edition in sight I thought I'd share what I found through instagram. This site Pix'n Love is doing their own special edition for SF30th. Comes with an 80 page artbook and four lithographs. The Switch version is sold out but XB1 and PS4 versions are still available. I personally own two artbooks for SF already, and don't exactly see a reason to nab this, but for those that don't order this before its gone.

https://www.editionspixnlove.com/rec...submit_search=

I am eager to have this game at home, and after the glowing response this game got at Final Round it feels good to know I don't have to run emulators to enjoy these games at home. I used to have every Capcom release on Dreamcast (both import and American) and for the longest time I thought the Dreamcast version of Alpha 3 was arcade perfect, turns out it is not! I stumbled upon this video and the differences (some minor) I never noticed. Turns out the Alpha Collection on PS2 is home to the only arcade perfect ports of the Alpha series. It's a lengthy video, so get comfy.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

If you are having trouble getting a game started, you have to map your buttons for each game individually. For the Switch, the Start button only brings up the menu, you have to map game start to one of the shoulders. On PS4 game start is set to the touch pad, and must be mapped before starting a game. Don't know about the XB1 or Steam, but the the button mapping is the same across all platforms (I would assume).

really wish the d pad on the left joycon was a standard one. Almost unplayable when trying to play this in portable mode with the joycons on the side.

If you really want, you can get a joycon with a dpad for like $100 on ebay or etsy or wherever, or do the swap yourself if you feel like spending an hour or two (a lot of tiny screws and care). You can get the replacement shells with a dpad for like $10 online.

I've got more money than time these days so I used the last 15% off ebay coupon and got a pair with a dpad for like $85. With kids I can always use some spare joycons anyway.

That said I'm a joystick player when it comes to fighting games, so I picked it this up for PS4.

I haven't picked up my copy yet but I didn't have much of a problem with Ultra Street Fighter II for Switch. Then again I don't claim to be great at the games either, I just enjoy them.

I was looking on amazon and ebay for joycons already modded, but the price threw me off seeing it near $100. I just want to play SF with a D pad and spending another $100 to do that is off putting. The better rated shells range from $20-30 it seems, but you do have to mod the joycon and also incurs a risk of it breaking if something goes wrong.

Hopefully the Hori dpad joycon is released in the states since the Japanese one being sold for about $25 US in july.

Probably won’t bother picking this up now after hearing how brutal the difficulty is on most of the games.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

Is it..? I mean, they're arcade fighters - the experience is pretty standard and I don't recall any of these games being out of the ordinary in that respect.

Anyway, great collection of games but with some serious downsides as per Capcom usual. Online is getting some spotty reviews and training modes only for the four online titles..? People are buying 12 fighting games and I'm pretty sure they're going to want to practice on the other eight games they just paid for too.

I'll be buying but not until the Black Friday digital sales. It's a shame Capcom just cannot be motivated to go 100% with any of their retro releases - this one was close but the above are absolute dealbreakers as far as full release pricing goes. Of course, as a company they will interpret sales numbers in black and white, and not as a reflection of their level of effort in the porting process.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

I mean for the games you arenít playing online you can just play regular to train. I can see why some people might want that option more for the online matches but even then itís not like you canít do the same thing. I donít have many complaints for twelve games at $40 (or thirteen games for owners of consoles besides the Switch). Also consider that for Switch owners just last year they released Ultra Street Fighter II which is just a single game for the same price.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

Sure you can, you can do lots of things with games that aren't exactly what was intended.. doesn't mean training isn't something that should have been included across the board on this collection. Again, I agree it's a great collection of games. That doesn't excuse an incomplete feature set (i.e. lack of work) when said games are, in fact, at least 19 or 20 years old, have been released multiple times previously, and still cost a full $40.

Capcom, having a history of doing just the bare minimum with rerelease titles all along, do not get benefit of the doubt here. You mention Ultra SF II and that's the perfect example. It shouldn't mean they get a pass on the disappointing aspects of this collection because they did something even worse before.

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (PS4/XB1/PC/Switch - May 2018)

Difficulty should never be a deterrent from purchase. That being said Super Turbo is the hardest game of this collection (I don't exactly count SF1 as it's difficulty comes from age). This collection was intended to be a celebration of the arcade releases, so things like a Vs mode and training were originally left out, until the fanbase cried a lot and it got shoe horned into the collection.

Each time Capcom released one of the older fighters as a standalone game or a re-release, fans kept asking "why not (__insert game here___). They finally drop them all into one collection and it still isn't enough. This is the first time since the PS2 era that we are getting a versions of these games that aren't connected to something bigger. If this collection feels "weak" you have to remember that Capcom has poured all their money into the main game SFV, where as this is being handled by Digital Eclipse.

Even with the hit/miss netcode, and lack of training mode for the non-online games, I'm pretty happy with this release, as I finally have portable SF, and its not the SNES games.

I guess I just donít see why training mode is that big of a deal personally. I guess it can be a nice feature but I donít think its something thatís absolutely needed. If thatís going to be your biggest deterrent it sort of seems like youíre looking for a reason to dislike the release.

I realize the games are old but I still think the price point is reasonable. You get at least twelve games and they basically work out to a little over $3 a piece. If youíre a fan of the franchise I donít see how itís not a good deal personally. Full price point to me would be $60 which is what most games cost. I think at $40 youíre getting a pretty nice package. Personally Capcom irked me a bit more recently with Mega Man by not putting both collections on one cartridge for the Switch release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2. No reason both collections couldnít have been on the cartridge.

Also I donít think Ultra Street Fighter II is a bad release. I was just pointing out that it was one game for the same price versus getting twelve games. Itís still a decent release on its own and was a nice early Switch release to get.

I don't really see the issue if the complaint is adding modes/features to an otherwise perfect port of the arcade games. That's not something I would expect or want in this sort of compilation.

The same reason people buy/play Dark Souls, a number of people want a challenge. ST is a hard game to play against the CPU, but is amazing to play against another person.

I guess Iíve never found any of the Street Fighter games that unbearably hard. A little challenging but not so much that theyíre unplayable.

Ironically, my favorite game of all time.
I donít play fighting games against other people normally, only against the cpu. So it would not be fun for me, just like the SSFII HD release or whatever it was on the 360.

Boot up Super SF2 Turbo on it's default, the game is HARD.

A bit off topic but I recently decided to try one of those subscription blind boxes for retro games (Retro Game Treasure) and this was inside.
