Oh! My car…

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Rumor has it that Super Street Fighter IV will have the car breaking and barrel busting mini-stages from the original Street Fighter II added into it [source]. No complaints here. Loved the car stage. Not so much the barrel one though. Depending on which character you were using that one could be a bitch. You could always cheese the car stage with Blanka or E. Honda, though.

Update: It’s confirmed that the car-bashing bonus stage will return in Super Street Fighter IV.

See Benny the Cab from ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ is in this comic? Reminds me that I want to mention two things relating to the ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ product. One, read the book the movie is based on: ‘Who Censored Roger Rabbit?’. It has Roger, Baby Herman, Eddie Valiant and Jessica Rabbit in it and that’s about where the similarities between the two end. Much darker story and has a pulp detective feel to it. Definitely worth the read. Second, Robert Zemeckis has confirmed that he is working on a Roger Rabbit sequel and that the original screenwriters are working on a script. [source]. Not sure if this is a good thing or not. Zemeckis has a major hard-on for the CGI motion capture thing now. Not sure if he might try using that instead of live actors. Just wouldn’t have the same feel. Your opinion?

Nonetheless, I’m done for the week. I will be at Nekocon, my last convention of the year, this weekend. So if you’re going to be in the Tidewater/Hampton Roads area of Virginia drop by and say, “Hi!” Otherwise, I’ll talk you next week.

    Will the “Roger Rabbit” sequel be based on “Who p-p-p-plugged Roger Rabbit” or will it be an original story? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I normally don’t comment on things like this BUT Who Framed Roger Rabbit Sequel! OMGZ SQUEEE! And I have read the book. Although I still favor the movie over the book, it was crazy how it was just the names used, and not even the character’s personality. What a spin. I wonder if the new WFRR will have 3D cartoon figures running around. I can hear Boop now: “Life’s been tough ever since cartoons went to dimensional.” XD

    I recognized Benny immediately, and will now actively pursue the book in question. Brilliant.

    Cross referencing for the old school win! I never knew the movie was based on a book,I thought it was MGM production or something (it’s been years since I’ve last seen that movie).I don’t doubt the book is better than the movie though,that’s what happens when you have people who don’t want to stick to the source material (Street Fighter,DBZ and King of Fighters are REALLY good examples of this).Glad to hear they’re bringing the bonus stages back,that should be interesting to see what they look like in 2.5D.

    Though expensive, I hope they go for that hand drawn/live action combo they did in the first one. It would be bitterly ironic if a movie about Toons didn’t use paint and cels.

    About SSF4: Sweet! I loved that stage.

    About the Roger Rabbit sequel: … do not really want, unless they actually can make the graphics as awesome as they were back then. CGI is a no-no.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it really shouldn’t be a surprise with how obsessed the crazy bastard has been with mocap these past so many years:

    According to the article, he won’t touch Jessica or Roger’s cartoon appearances though. Phew!
