    Sometimes the so called experts really manages to piss one off with their total and utter ignorance...

    I'm sure some, or perhaps all of you've already seen this, but I came across it as late as today.

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://sega.cloudchaser.com/reviews/index.php?view=virtua_fighter_3tb&system=dc&type=software>http://sega.cloudchaser.com/reviews/index.php?view=virtua_fighter_3tb&system=dc&type=software</A>

    This may well be the sadest VF3-review of all time...
    I quote: "...the engine manages to hold up quite well even now. While not a terribly deep or engaging one..."

    What's with these people? Do they even play the damn thing?
    It makes me depressed that they're even allowed to review a game... People read this and they go "the engine is not a terribly deep or engaging one.. I'll just play Bloody Roar some more now..." and grumbles off.

    Ignorance is sega's enemy in general.. That's what I'm starting to think anyway.

    Mirkan -- This is totally off topic, but your Photoshop-filtered personal photo of Jacky looks a lot like something out of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    P.S. Most game reviewers are complete idiots, unfortunately. But SoA isn't exactly the epitome of marketing brilliance either.

    True enough, hehehe!

    However, the "not too deep or engaging" stuff made me snap =}

    As for the pic, I actually made it on an Oekaki Board.. In a quite simple java drawing program reminicent of Corel Painter..

    Hope you like it =D

    Nice, I like it. Reminds me of the Sandman episodes after Dream died and the Endless were at the funeral (#71-#74 IIRC). Kinda like a gouache painting.

    I think I'm desensitized to these types of reviews these days. And I'm pretty much in agreement with Chris about the majority of reviewers.

    In any case.... "Who thinks VF3tb would be completely fucked up to play on analog?!"

    I DO! I DO!!!

    I'm surprised at some of the people who play SC on Analog....
