I can’t say I even remember playing this. After completing Portrait Of Ruin twice, I vaguely recall something afterwards. If anything, it didn’t leave a lasting memory other than ‘Oh, maybe I played that…wasn’t as good as Portrait.’ In any event, I’m trying to go through some hard drive stuff and these two artworks are pretty sweet…so while the game may not have been so spectacular, the art here is. Enjoy!
Fortunately, I don’t really care what people think. Because…well…this appears to be a complete waste of time. However, upon final inspection, I quite like it, and that’s all that friggin’ matters…got it? Well, since I started going through Ratchet & Clank HD this past week, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the game. Getting all the gold bolts, skill points, weapons, etc. has been a cool challenge and a nice memory (unlike that THPSHD DLC) Anyhoo, it’s been a lot of fun and so I had that stupid inspiration to collect every R&C logo from every game. I was surprised to find so many!!! I compiled all the Japanese releases, one French and another Spanish and tossed in all the alternate European titles. It’s absurd…and that’s why I love it. Head over to my main site for the complete collection of R&C logos. Just be prepared for it to be a waste of your time. A good waste.
I couldn’t contain myself the other day and spilled the beans but today the huge update is live. Having tweaked more than two dozen different sections by adding posters, new galleries, fixing old ones and revamping a few pages, it’s easily the biggest update since the site launched 11 years ago. And, congrats to me for another long-running site. Crumbling Flesh turns 18 this year, the empty shell that is Planet Tony Hawk would be 14 and this one 11. Rock on! I was psyched to make this big update, giving me 106 galleries in this humble site. Here are the samples I listed over there. Excellent!!!
I’ll be posting a huge update over at Street Fighter Galleries soon, in honor of the site’s 11th anniversary. What turned out as a few gallery updates has become an enormous undertaking. By my latest count, I’ve updated or added no fewer than 23 galleries and added at least a half dozen posters. So…while I want to wait to post the big update, I’m also psyched to fix a lot of things that were slightly broken (10 year old code) and also fill some gaps that were missing. This last update of the day was to Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter. Never one of my favorite games, its art is impressing me lately! Check out the new updates!
Even as a long-time Mega Man fan, I have almost zero interest in this title. The grand celebration of the Blue Bomber’s 25th anniversary has come out as a free, downloadable, fan-made title and it’s nothing short of OK. That’s not fair, I haven’t really given it enough love, but I did check it out and was left feeling underwhelmed. In any event, I’ve captured the character artwork, as basic and lame as it is. I figured I should post them over at SFGalleries. In fact, it’s my 93rd gallery with another 6 bonus galleries…that means the next is my 100th; that’ll be a nice way to celebrate the site’s 10th anniversary. Let’s see what we have:
Three updates in one day? All on Vampire/Darkstalkers? OK! With 40 minutes until Santa arrives, I’m pretty psyched. My wife is going to be psyched about her new iPod and bluetooth headphones. As for me…I don’t know what I’m getting. I think a new video camera is out of the question, and she doesn’t seem to like my cubing obsession (such a strong word!) We’ll see in about 8 hours! Until then, the last set of Vampire Resurrection art has come out and it’s pretty sweet. This finishes the gallery and is one of the strongest sets of art Capcom has put out in a long time. Check it all out and here’s your sample…
This blog has been quiet the last few weeks but I have been working hard on something new. I’m going to be posting my complete Vampire Savior FAQ shortly and I’m very excited to finally publish this. It’s been a long journey but for now here is the complete logo collection: something I need to get published properly over at SFGalleries. In any event, my guide will cover all the following titles:
That’s right…one guide to cover them all!
I’ve been doing research for a potential FAQ on the Vampire / Darkstalkers series. As I work on this, I decided to put some more effort into the series’ entries on SFGalleries. As I continue to work on that guide, I updated the site with the new character art for
Vampire / Darkstalkers Resurrection, due in March. The new gallery, which is only half complete so far, is spectacular. I’ll toss some samples below. I’ll continue to update this as Capcom Japan posts new art. Enjoy!!!
I thought 53 was sufficient but I was mistaken! Going through Marvel Vs. Capcom recently, I noticed I missed a few palette swaps! Since Ken and Gouki are missing from the game, they are represented through Ryu and so there are four additional colors available by switching. My SFZ swaps section now includes these four. Given the stupidity of the gallery in my last post, this shouldn’t really be a surprise. Here are the four new sprites which are added to the ridiculous number of gaming GIFs on my main site.
