frivolous Isn't it entirely ironic how some PS2-oriented gaming sites are now proclaiming in bold capitals the coming of VF4? One could see in the very same places, only a few months ago, bold-lettered hailings to Tekken Tag Tournament, and in the ensuing numb-brained review, some half-witted attempts to justify the appeal of that game series over VF (a tired subject, even more so because of the lack of understanding by the people that most often fire up the argument, i.e. people that have never played any of the VF games to any great length); In any case, I'm not an optimistic person, I don't think any sort of mainstream spotlight will do VF any great good - it could, but in my opinion, it simply won't - extremely frivolous media fuels extremely frivolous audience, and VF isn't a frivolous game - these same people will likely be complaining a few months from now from the lack of "secrets" in the game, or about the fact that you don't have to "unlock" certain characters, etc. We've seen it all before with Dead or Alive, a game that I consider to be much more frivolous than VF - those same childish complaints were targeted at it, and no serious mention about gameplay was made at all - now it all died out in a fizz. It would be absolutely hysterical to see people complaining about a lack of "C4" costume for Pai, but then again, it wouldn't - I think it would be a sad, unlaughable thing. Anyway, however, people who love to play VF will play VF, and that's all that really matters. If only there could be a widespread arcade distribution to fuel up some old-fashioned competitive play... I don't think it will happen at all. Even less so in light of these recent events - if the space between the arcade and home releases is too sparse, then it's even more difficult to convince people (and I mean people at large, the laymen - even those who are remotely interested in the game) to spend tokens to play, when they can scrub against the computer at home, without having to pay by play - it's a sad thing, but I see it everyday here; competitive arcade play simply seems to be dying down (except for the people who've done it since when they can remember, me for one - or for some eastern countries, from what I hear ... near-simultaneous console releases only contribute to make it dead for good. Anyway, blah. I'm glad that I'll have access to the game, in some form or another, since having a Naomi2-based machine down here is well-nigh impossible - but I'd do all I could to get one to the arcade.
