Flashback : Hideo Kojima Argued Over Policenauts' Bouncing Boobs With Sony, while SEGA had no such issue with that







Quote
"I was contacted by [Sony Computer Entertainment], who told me, 'We're going to decide in an upcoming meeting how many times breasts can jiggle.' I argued over and over with them saying, 'that's absurd!' In the end, we worked things out, but I'll never forget arguing over the 'breast jiggle issue' with Shuhei Yoshida, who was our SCE contact at the time."
While the jiggle was kept intact for the PlayStation release, the animation was reduced somewhat when compared to the Saturn version, which suggests that Sega of Japan had no such issue with the exaggerated booby movement (indeed, the first Dead or Alive was released on the Saturn the following year, and we all know how that turned out).
The Saturn version is considered by many fans to be the best of the bunch, and not just because of the boobies; it also has lightgun sections, and the FMV sequences run at 24 fps, as opposed to the 15 fps of the PlayStation version. English fan translations exist for both ...

X-MEN VS. STREET FIGHTER - APOCALYPSE TRIVIA









Quote
"Initially, we were planning to make a normal human-sized character for APOCALYPSE, but no one seemed to be happy with the normal version.
So we decided to make him a giant boss to save space and spend some time on effects!
I'm glad it had an impact because it was made with very limited capacity."

"ACA NEOGEO REAL BOUT FATAL FURY" is 50% off on Switch until January 6, 2023









Quote
“REAL BOUT FATAL FURY” is a fighting game released by SNK in 1995.
Using the previous system as a base, isolating the Sweep Button, the inclusion of Combination Attacks, and other elements such as ring outs make for an even speedier and tempo-based play style. Sixteen fighters battle it out to see who is the strongest.
The "ACA NEOGEO" series has faithfully reproduced many classic NEOGEO masterpieces.

So my birthday is coming up and there's nothing I really want... then I remembered these things and how cool it would be to play  Sonic Superstars (which I got for Christmas) or heck most modern games with it. So I would like one for my birthday.

Problem is, I checked the Retro-bit store, specifically around Saturn controllers, but I can't find where to purchase it.

Do you know where I can buy it?
