Hello everyone! Welcome to my profile/blog! I've been an avid gamer since I was a toddler. I started out with Street Fighter 2 on the Sega Genesis and I progressed to Final Fantasy 7, Rival Schools, Darkstalkers *forms heart*, Brave Fencer Musashi, Resident Evil, Metal Slug, Metal Gear Solid, House of the Dead, and many other titles. I am also a huge Evil Dead/Bruce Campbell fan <3333! As you can tell by my avatar I'm a huge Darkstalkers fan and I'm also one of the representatives(if you wish to refer to me as such haha) of the campaign over at the Capcom Unity website to have an HD remix installment of Darkstalkers ported to PS3, Xbox 360 and even the Wii. I've noticed there are quite a few fans of the series here so I just wanted to drop buy and see if you guys wanted to assist ^_^. The thread in which we are posting is this:
We also have a Darkstalkers Group and threads in the "Games Discussion" portion of the site if you wish to contribute to those areas as well^^. It would mean a great deal to me and the others as well as the many DS fans around the world if you were to contribute in some way. Thank you very much =].
I am extremely excited for next month because TGS is coming up! I've always looked foward to TGS ever since I was younger and I'm especially excited this year because of the hype surrounding the support for an HD Remix of Darkstalkers and a new game. It's really no secret on Unity that Capcom has been working on a top secret game for months now and we've all been speculating wondering what it is. While visiting Eventhubs today to see what others were hoping what would be announced, two titles kept being mentioned: Darkstalkers HD Remix/HD Chronicle and Darkstalkers IV/Vampire IV. The hype is growing >]....I'm very happy to hear that our campaign is doing very well and that others are hoping both or either of those two are announced at TGS. I'm also hoping for a new Rival Schools!
Now onto the video; I created this last night using Windows Movie Maker. Note:The images in this video are not mine and the music is from the Night Warriors/Vampire Hunter soundtrack. Let me tell you it was very troublesome attempting to convert the video and it took me almost an hour to figure out how to make the video a WMA file. You have to publish it onto your computer. .....I'm pretty sure most would guess to do that on their first try. Anyway! I'm encouraging you all to send this video around and post it anywhere you can think of, whether it be anime and other game messageboards, blogs, Facebook, Myspace, etc. Show it to other fans of the series and to those who are interested(and try to sway others hehe)!
PS: If the embedded video doesn't work, view it on Youtube.
[size=18]Hey everyone! I've noticed that our campaign has gotten recognition on Joystiq and eventhubs and I've seen a few blogs around here as well and I was hoping that you all would assist in our campaign we have going on at the Capcom Unity website about having an HD Remix version of Darkstalkers being ported to PSN/XBL and even Wii(don't want to leave out the Wii users)! A new game hasn't been created for the series in 10+ years and some characters have been featured in crossovers such as the Marvel vs Capcom series, the Capcom vs SNK series, and now most recently Tatsunoko vs Capcom and Cross Edge. After seeing these guest appearances, some fans have wondered "When will there be a new game?". I was and still am one of those fans. But about a month ago, a member of Unity decided to become the start of the DS movement by posting a question in the "Ask Capcom" forums if there was a chance of an HD remix possible. Christian Svensson, the vice president, asked "Is this something people want to see?" That question right there started an entire movement. Quite a number of fans posted saying "Of course we want to see it!" and even to this day people are signing up on the website just to post on that thread to show their support.
On Unity, there's a member (who I refer to as my Seargant XD) named Koria who custom makes support avatars and he can pretty much make anything you'd like! There are a good number of us who "wear" these avatars proudly and other members are taking notice and requesting avatars and even making some of their own. Why just literally a moment ago I saw one! Our campaign is growing...and I'd love for all of the Darkstalkers supporters here at Destructoid to become a part of it. Please do not believe your voices will fall upon deaf ears for remember, Street Fighter 4 was made possible by fan support. If we rally up enough support, which I'm confident we will, then we will have what we've been awaiting for the past 10+ years. So please feel free to sign up at Capcom Unity and post here:
Also, if you'd like, you can join the Darkstalkers group and post at the other support threads:
