Just got some shots of a quick game between Simon (Co-creator) and I this weekend.
I'm playing Phobeya - Silhouette - Miles (Bottom of first pic), versus Simon who's playing Bolt - Craw - Locust (top of first pic)
Pic one is of the game 6 turns in.
Pic two is a little closer on play.
Pic three is my team: Phobeya (2 super points) & Silhouette (Max super points) are active, Miles non-active.
People who are familiar with the game will notice optimal Lost in Illusion placed onto Craw is picture #4! Hehehe, no more super points til you retreat you dirty skeleton!
5 is some card backs... showing PF logo in all its finery.
Um, yeah, I lost this game too... so boo. Still, Phobeya rules any enemies that rely on Special Constants to maintain an advantage, like Locust & Bolt, so it was a very close match-up. Pity I lost Miles too early though.
Yes, it's coming. Street Fighter IV is coming (hopefully) to us in 2008.
I've been a Street Fighter fanatic and fan ever since part one in the 80's, I even hold a trophy for being the Street Fighter Alpha 3 champion of South Auckland years 1998-2001 and Street Fighter 3: Second impact year 2001. I know, kinda crazy... but I'm proud of them titles none-the-less.
Street Fighter 4 looks to include four of our favorites from Street fighter 2: Ryu and Ken of course, along with Dhalsim (!!! Awesome) and Chun Li. I'm kinda wishing they'd leave it at that for returning characters, but this game is going to be set between the Street fighter 2 & 3 stories in the timeline, so anyone is fair game.
Some fresh faces would go down a treat I think.
I've attached a screen... yes, it's 3d-esque... but that essence is still there IMO... and I can't wait!
"In the beginning, that which Is is all there was, and there was nothing else. Yet All That Is could not know itself - because All That Is is all there was, and there was nothing else. And so, All That Is... was not. For in the absence of something else, All That Is, is not. This is the great Is/Not Is to which mystics have referred from the beginning of time. Now All That Is knew it was all there was - but this was not enough, for it could only know its utter magnificence conceptually, not experientially. Yet the experience of itself is that for which it longed, for it wanted to know what it felt like to be so magnificent. Still this was impossible, because the very term "magnificent" is a relative term. All That Is could not know what it felt like to be magnificent unless that which is not (Magnificent) showed up. In the absence of that which is not, that which Is, is not.
Do you understand this? ... I hope so, let's keep going...
The ony thing that All That Is knew is that there was nothing else. And so it could, and would, never know itself from a reference point outside of itself. Such a point did not exist. Only one refernce point existed, and that was the single place within. The "Is-not Is" The Am-Not Am. Still, the All of Everything chose to know itself experientially. This Energy - This pure, unseen, unheard, unobserved, and therefore unknown-by-anyone-else energy - chose to experience itself as the utter magnificence it was. In order to do this, it realised it would have to use a reference point within. It reasoned, quite correctly, that any portion of itself would necessarily have to be less than the whole, and that if it simply divided itself into portions, each portion, being less than the whole, could look back on the rest of itself and see magnificence. And so All That Is divided itself - becoming, in one glorious moment, that which is this, and that which is that. For the first time, this and that existed, quite apart from each other. And still, both existed simultaneously. As did all that was neither. Thus, three elements suddenly existed: that which is here. That which is there. And that which is neither here nor there - but which must exist for here and there to exist. It is the nothing which holds the everything. It is the non-space which holds the space. It is the all that holds the parts.
