I hate that Kefka fight. It's way more difficult than any previous boss battle, and you have to repeat 4 or 5 scripted battles if you fail. I spent way too many rentals trying to get past it.

Wow, I never expected such a detailed response. Thank you for that!

I completely agree with you on aging the main characters and introducing a new cast. Part of why I love Streets of Rage / Bare Knuckle 3 is because of the roster and how they tried to expand the world.

I also agree that trying to recapture the "magic" and feel of a classic game series is risky and that you set yourself up for failure with the more direct comparisons you have.

I think part of why Sonic Mania is so successful is because the folks behind it have years and years worth of experience playing, modifying, and recreating various games from the series. And even then, they were smart enough to take two obscure characters and make them their own. (Really, I @#$%ing love that they brought back Ray.)

I haven't played Streets of Fury so I don't know if SoR 4 is in good hands. (Honestly, I feel like Sega missed a golden opportunity with the fan game, Streets of Rage Remake.) That said, they're obviously fans of the genre, and I'm glad something is being done with the franchise at least. I do hope more characters will be announced and the original composers will be involved though.

Glad I'm not the only one to take exception with Ecclesia. Yeah, I'm only a few hours in, and already the difficulty seems awfully steep. Blending standard weapons and special weapons into one seems interesting, I don't mind mashing buttons to combo, but I HATE being unable to attack at all when I run out of magic. Just seems like I'm constantly left at a disadvantage, making the game an uphill battle. I'll stick with it, though.
only expensive games and expensive scotch from now on
