Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium Switch NSP Free Download Unfitgirl Since there’s little ‘wrong’ with Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium, what’s right with it will depend on the sensibilities and interests of the player. The second of Capcom’s superbly curated compilations following on from Capcom Arcade Stadium, its 32 arcade titles (one of which is free) now feature a greater emphasis on action and fighting games. As before, you can buy the complete bundle pack or download the frontend and purchase titles individually. Everything runs silky smooth, lag-free, and is presented as a scrollable strip of tantalisingly jumbled-up arcade cabinets. The interface is attractive and highly customisable, with difficulty adjustments, auto-fire options, abundant wallpaper bezels, and the ability to order games by genre. Like the previous release, you can refashion your arcade by individually changing the look of each cabinet. The external view option, too, is intriguing, drawing out to reveal the mock machine’s housing. It’s not the most efficient way to play, nor does it work well on anything except a large TV screen, but it’s pretty cool nonetheless. Online leaderboards track scoring feats, while special condition challenges attempt to extend each game’s life in return for Capcom Arcade Stadium Points (CASPO), later redeemable for bonuses like additional cabinet colours. For those who love arcade games but feel under-skilled in the art of the one-credit clear, cheating is granted via speed up, slow down, and rewind inputs. Unfitgirl.COM SEXY GAMES
Spending time with Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium comes close to rekindling memories of an actual arcade. You browse the machines, each game running warm and fuzzy on its respective screen, before dropping a visual coin into the slot with a click of the thumb-stick. The quality of Capcom’s output during their arcade heyday really shines. LED Storm (1989), a top-down futuristic racer, features a comical approximation of Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T. bleating “Energy, Energy… You’re running out of Energy!” as you careen over sky-high freeways and glass-topped deserts. Its Japanese name, Mad Gear, later served as the moniker for Final Fight’s evil gang. Although the Dungeons & Dragons series remains conspicuously absent, Capcom’s fervour for fantasy-themed scrolling beat-em-ups, complete with levelling-up and superficial role-playing elements, is established here with Black Tiger (1987), Magic Sword (1990), Knights of the Round (1991) and The King of Dragons (1991). It’s a superb set, featuring gorgeous medieval fantasy worlds with unique characteristics and challenges. Elsewhere, the feudal China-themed Tiger Road (1987) is a beautiful action adventure of meandering paths, obstacle-laden temples, and wild boss encounters. On the shoot ’em up front, Side Arms (1986), 1943 KAI (1988) and the beautiful-looking Eco Fighters (1994) are all excellent entries. Depending on who you ask (us) they’re pipped by the joyous high-pressure onslaught of Gun.Smoke (1985), Capcom’s superlative cowboy murder-fest.
Just Like the Good Old Days
The other shoot ’em ups are either rather dated (Savage Bees, 1985), rather bad (The Speed Rumbler, 1986, and Last Duel, 1988), or, in the case of the excellent Son Son (1984), wrongly categorised. Fighting game fans are well catered for, but adopters of the very recent Capcom Fighting Collection may feel irked that six of its eleven titles have been republished here: Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Edition (2004), Darkstalkers (1994), Night Warriors (1995), Vampire Savior (1997), Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo (1996) and Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix (1997). These are accompanied by all three Street Fighter Alpha games, both entries of Mega Man: The Power Battles, and the eclectic four-player wrestling fanfare, Saturday Night Slam Masters (1992). Perhaps the title of greatest historical interest will be the original Street Fighter (1987), a frankly terrible game in which you play as either Ryu (Player 1) or Ken (Player 2), and battle your way to the title of world’s strongest. It’s painfully clunky, can be easily beaten by exploiting ‘Hadoken’ motions, and plays a totally imprecise two-player competitive game. At the same time, it’s endearing to see the origins of the series’ iconic special moves and characters like Balrog, Gen, Birdie, Eagle, Adon, and Sagat. When playing, and for pure amusement value, just remember Capcom’s development team once opined that they were stunned by its lack of success. Capcom Sports Club (1997) features Football, Basketball, and Tennis minigames, each rendered with huge, colourful sprites in cutely designed arenas. Simple arcade action, it’s great fun for two players and does a surprisingly good job detailing its less-than-serious sporting skirmishes. Call of Duty Black Ops II
On the puzzle front, Pnickies (1994) is an enjoyable but lesser Puyo Puyo clone that requires two stars to detonate a fusion of coloured jellies, while Block Block (1991) plays a rather underwhelming game of Breakout. Special mention must go to the Japan-only Hissatsu Buraiken (1987), a laughably poor top-down beat-em-up that proves even Capcom was capable of turning out the odd stinker. While Capcom Arcade Stadium 2 ably conjures the magic of arcades past and offers a varied, quality library, it isn’t perfect. Like the former release, titles that are Japan-only still have to be manually switched from English region to be started, and certain games, like Pnickies, are completely untranslated and require trial and error to decipher their in-game options. The excellent Three Wonders should have been included rather than held back as DLC, and, in what can only be described as a foul business machination, online co-op and competitive play are totally unavailable. You won’t be taking the likes of Street Fighter Alpha 2 or Saturday Night Slam Masters onto the global stage, nor going international co-op with Knights of the Round. Seeing as online gaming is par for the course these days — and operates without a hitch in the Fighting Collection — it’s as if Capcom is purposely curating the privilege to increase sales of selected packages. Additionally, the aspect and screen filter options remain annoyingly off. The ‘arcade’ option accurately shrinks the entire display to what should be correct parameters,
Brand New Ways to Play
But creates a scanline ‘banding’ effect that indicates there’s something amiss with the ratios. This is at its worst when using the external cabinet views, where filters display poorly enough to warrant being restricted from use. Worse still, while there are lots of image adjustments available, they’re nowhere near the quality of those in the Capcom Fighting Collection. The scanline options look fine on the dimmed background preview, but in-game the over-engineered, eye-straining bloom effects desaturate the image and are hard on the eyes. With no density adjustments, the unfiltered, pixellated default is a sub-optimal concession. On the plus side, if you’re using a Flipgrip (or if you’re ok with physically upending your TV), rotate options allow you to take vertical scrolling games neatly into TATE mode. Retro compilations have been around for decades now and yet still they’re almost always a disappointment: never offering a definitive collection of whatever they’re themed around and rarely ever featuring any kind of museum content to properly celebrate the titles. Minimum efforts have been de rigueur for the concept almost since its inception, which is why last year’s Capcom Arcade Stadium stood out, since it was packed with both classic games and extra features. The first Capcom Arcade Stadium was also unusual in that it was technically free-to-play, with the option to download the frontend, and one free game, for nothing and then add packs of additional games according to whether you’re interested in them or not (already owning the same game several times over is another common problem with retro compilations). Call of Duty
This sequel follows similar logic, although now you can just buy each game individually. That’s particularly welcome because while the first Stadium was extremely varied in its selection this one has an awful lot of fighting games in it, and if you’ve just bought the Capcom Fighting Collection you’re not going to be interested in any of the Darkstalkers games or the Street Fighter puzzle games. There are still a lot of other titles, both obscure and widely celebrated, to pique your interest, but at the same time there is a pervasive feeling that this compilation is trying to make the best of the leftovers. There are 32 games available in Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium but the obvious question, of why they weren’t just launched as additional DLC to the first, is never answered. It’s probably just because its more high profile to release them this way and given how you pay for them it doesn’t cost any more. So other than the frustration of not having everything accessible from the same collection it doesn’t make any difference. You still get mod-cons like a rewind option, infinite credits, and save states for each game, plus the ability to adjust the speed for most games. There’s also a wide range of screen filters and other display options, including the ability to customise the virtual arcade cabinets if you so wish. There’s no online play though, which is a shame, and still no real behind the scenes content, to offer any context for any of the games. This is a pity not only because many of them are very obscure but because there are obvious connections between many of the games that you’re just left to guess at
Play hard. Dominate the scoreboards
In terms of what must have been going on in with their development and the teams working on them. The free game this time round is SonSon, a largely forgotten side-scrolling shooter from 1984 that, if only in terms of its graphics, almost feels like a precursor to Ghosts ‘N Goblins. It’s a simpler game overall but the way you can jump up and down the various levels of platform is interesting and offers a surprising degree of freedom. Even if it does quickly make the whole experience seem very samey. SonSon is something of an odd-one-out though as it’s the oldest game in the collection and the majority of other titles were released a decade or so later. There are only a few other mid-80s titles, such as cowboy shooter Gun.Smoke, which is a similar style of vertical scroller to Commando but wastes its interesting control set-up, where you have separate buttons for shooting left and right, on being viciously difficult. Savage Bees (aka Exed Exes) is a much less memorable vertically scrolling shooter, with the Second World War themed 1943 Kai being far superior. The horizontally scrolling Hyper Dyne Side Arms is also a lot of fun and another Capcom shooter with an interesting control system, where you can shoot behind you as well as just in front – similar to Section Z from the first Stadium collection. Capcom was always more willing than most to experiment with unusual control schemes or genre mash-ups, as evidenced by Hissatsu Buraiken (aka Avenger) which is a rare attempt at a vertically scrolling beat ‘em-up, although the difficulty you have connecting your attacks to enemies shows why the idea never caught on. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Last Duel is a more successful experiment, as it starts off with you controlling a sci-fi vehicle in a vertical scrolling level that’s half race game and half shooter. Get to the end though and you transform into a spaceship for more traditional 2D shooter action, and then alternate back and forth with each level. The only problem is that while the spaceship levels are really good the ground-based ones are much less enjoyable, which kind of spoils the gimmick. It’s easy to confuse the ground levels with the slightly later LED Storm, which has no shooting elements but sees you transforming from car to motorbike in a series of vertically scrolling races. It comes across a bit like a top-down F-Zero but the inability to see far enough ahead of you limits its appeal. It’s still a lot more fun than the eight-way scrolling The Speed Rumbler though, which is a chore to play, as Capcom again try to mix a driving game with a top-down shooter. Many of these games were converted to the 8 and 16-bit formats of the day. This includes Tiger Road, which in gameplay terms is surprisingly similar to Sega’s Shinobi and yet came out the exact same month in 1987. Playing Black Tiger in its original form, it’s more obvious how similar its eight-way scrolling levels are to the slightly earlier Bionic Commando. It does have another point of interest though, in that it has an in-game shop you can use in-game currency in. Adding role-playing elements to arcade games was not as uncommon as you might think, and the similarly themed Magic Sword has the ability to rescue
AI companions that can join you on your fight. Scrolling beat ’em-up The King Of Dragons goes even further by having actual experience points, levelling up, and a rudimentary inventory. The combat is very simplistic though and Knights Of The Round proves to be a much more enjoyable experience overall – in fact it’s rightly regarded as one of the best scrolling beat ’em-ups of all time, thanks to the ability to not only block but counter enemy attacks. There are a few other curios in the collection, such as Arkanoid clone Block Block, Dr. Mario clone Pnickies, and Capcom Sports Club – which has quite a good tennis game in it. Three Wonders is also a compilation of three different games, and they’re all pretty good. Midnight Wanderers is surprisingly similar to Treasure’s classic action platformer Gunstar Heroes, so much so that it feels like it must’ve been an inspiration, as it came out two years earlier. 2D shooter Chariot features the same characters and while it’s more generic it’s still a good amount of fun, as is the Pengo style puzzle game Don’t Pull. Once you start to get into the mid-90s Capcom’s output begins to focus squarely on one-on-one fighting games, thanks to the success of Street Fighter 2. The original game was already in the first Stadium collection, so here you get 15th anniversary release Hyper Street Fighter 2, plus the original (and surprisingly poor) game from 1987, and the three Alpha titles. Oddly though, none of the Street Fighter 3 games are included, despite them having come out before Alpha.
