    Anyone else like SFA2 or prefer the older games, i'm definately looking forward to SFIV and 'Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD'

    Adding those to my PS3 account as soon as they hit the PSN sometime next year, just hope they change some of the less salubrious bugs.

    Also does anyone know what happens when u beat SFA2 on the hardest difficulty??

    I also look forward to Street Fighter II Hyper Mega Remix cuadruple colon: Championship Remastered Edition Featuring Michael Jackson HD

    I remember Alpha 2, Incredible how they ported it to the SNES IMO. But Alpha 3 was the best of the Alpha series, hell one of the best of the whole series.

    It's also one of the rarest games on the system, and gaming mags raved over it back in the day.

    The Sega Saturn version required the 4MB cart if i remember correctly, which made it pointless as that 4MB addon cart was never released in the UK.

    The UK didn't get a lot of stuff actually, it was pretty poor for gaming back in the SNES/Saturn days, everything people raved over in the USA just didn't come over here. [​IMG]

    But these days you can get an AR or a Chinese-produced derivate that doubles as a RAM extension cart and a save cart on the Internet for like $20. There's really no excuse not to, unless you can't be bothered with retro stuff.

    The SNES version has been emulated for ages too but back on topic, I own the cart as well. I thought it was interesting until I played it for a bit. The loading times are annoying because it is a cartridge. They should've used a bigger ROM with a custom memory mapping chip instead of their crappy compression routines.

    Back in the day, SF2T & SF2CE were the best are the arcades, with the likes of Tomo, those were the good old days.

    SFIV & SF HD should be interesting.

    Wow.. Really?
    I have the SFA2 Cartridge in my drawer, is it worth a lot?

    By the way.. Alpha2 on the SNES was near perfect, one of my favorite SNES games.
    Too bad the Loading times partially ruined it for me.

    Loading times? Really?

    I haven't played it in sooo long. I have a copy somewhere as well. I guess now is as good a time as any to try it out and see if it still works [​IMG]

    One night, back in my college days (which was sometime between the release of the PSX and the release of the PS2, so go figure) I was playing my beloved Saturn, and one of my friends came over to play my copy of SFA2. (SFA3 was not out yet, so this was about as good as it got.)

    We were big fans of all the capcom 2d games, which at the time, the Saturn was the best system for playing em. Later that evening, he left my place as I was playing through as Sakura, having a good ol' time. That is, until I got to Ryu. Last boss Ryu. Who proceeded to whip my well-toned schoolgirl rump without even breaking a sweat.

    I challenged him again, and lost just as quickly. Cursing this newfound difficulty, I threw my infinite continues against him time after time after time, and lost...for HOURS. HOURS I fought him, losing countless matches in gaping disbelief at my utter failure.

    Finally, around 4 AM -- far too late to bother going to bed and getting up for class the next day -- I finally, FINALLY lucked out and beat Ryu. I watched the ending, then passed out, vowing to never play that game ever again. I gave my copy away the next day, and never have I played SFA2 since!

    ...though I loved SFA3. [​IMG]
