Circa1916: Man, super addictive. It’s hard playing with the Xbox controller, but I’ve learned you’re better off just using the analog stick because that d-pad is hopeless. This is like 1000x better with a stick. Night and day. I’m actually hitting dragon punches regularly. Best fighting game netcode, like, ever btw. This cleaned up 14 year old piece makes most modern fighting games look pretty shitty.

Guile combos

Cozwn: It’s so addictive too; I’ve just gone like 0-20 against two guys in the lobby I’m in and I’m still really enjoying it…

Jamescobo: I’ve kind of fallen in love with the inscrutability of hardcore (or apparently even semi-hardcore) SFII players. Reading through reaction threads feels like reading Clockwork Orange again for the first time. Between this, Wipeout HD, Chrono Trigger, Mother 3, Space Invaders Extreme, and (I guess) Okami, 2008 might be an even better year for remakes than for ‘new’ games.

MPX4A: The online in this is great. Getting stuck in a lobby spectating a match ought to be boring, but scouting some flash guy winning in straight rounds and expecting to get caned, then playing him and winning is fun.

Jamescobo: Best remaster since ‘The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads’.
