Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors

Capcom confirms: Darkstalkers coming to PSN this month

11:30 PM on 11.17.2011 // Joseph Leray

Another day, another game outed by the ESRB and later confirmed by publishers. This time, it's Capcom community manager Brett Elston confirming that Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors is headed to the PlayStation Network, with a provisional release date of November 29.

The Night Warriors -- not to be confused with Darkstalkers Chronicles: The Chaos Tower, which was added to PSN two years ago -- was released in the arcade in 1994 and was ported to the PlayStation in 1996.

Elston mentions that Darkstalkers influenced many of Capcom's future fighting games. I'm no historian, and he may be right, but The Night Warrior's most important contribution may be that Hsien-Ko passed her disproportionately floppy hands to Chun-Li.

This is normally where I lament our culture's obsession with nostalgia and the games industry's willingness to re-purpose and re-package old stuff, but I'm not going to complain about another chance to watch horror-movie B-listers duke it out in beautifully drawn and animated fashion.

So there. Nyah.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

Just got a Vita with a 16GB card for super cheap. What games should I be looking out for?

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!
