Loot boxes aren't going anywhere. What's gonna end up happening is like, half of all games just won't get released in Europe.

Some gaming communities, really really got their panties into twist about loot boxes.

While they are saying that it is, because, it is supposedly "horrible practice" and "prays on poor people who can suffer from an addiction", I suspect that it is because they just didn't get stuff from them that they wanted.

Personally I prefer loot boxes (as long as they contain cosmetic items) instead of countless DLCs.

I mean thats still going to hurt said companies's wallets and if more countries are going to follow suit then they are going to have to rework lootboxes. Hell Hawaii consider's them to be "predatory behavior" so there might be a chance that some states in the U.S might follow suit.

I mean thats a valid criticism, you have no idea what you are going to get with a Lootbox so there is going to be a good chance some people are pretty much wasting money on things they don't want just because they were unlucky. At least with a DLC you know what you are getting.

I mean, Hell, Hell, I mean.

We'll see what happens, but I doubt anything major.

Shut the F*CK up and take my money!

I thought of getting Ultra Street Fighter II, and even contemplated buying the Genesis versions of Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition and Super Street Fighter II from the Virtual Console, but I think I'll wait this one out instead.

I'm surprised no one is making a big deal that Street Fighter 1 is included, AFAIK that has never been re-released since it came out and the few ports it got back then. It was always ignored in any compilations.

The only thing that sucks is that having the arcade versions means we won't get the definitive versions of Alpha 3 for example but it's still cool they have all the main arcade versions here, really didn't expect it. These types of compilations ended in the PS2 era with publishers preferring to sell you the individual games in online shops.

Don't know if I should get it for Switch or PC.
