Turns out the Chrono Trigger boxart wasnt that wrong

Tera thought this deserved a post, from the Chrono Trigger DS thread:

A lot of people like to point out the inconsistency of Marle casting fire on the Chrono Trigger coverart. 99% of people have never realized that the Chrono Trigger coverart is actually the three of them doing the Arc Impulse triple tech (Crono leaps off Frog’s back, Marle’s magic turns Crono’s sword to fire, and he strikes). Completely explains the Crono’s sword being on fire, and why Frog is kneeling on the ground. 2nd tech seen here.

Learn something with Mega Man 7

I was reading about Mega Man 7 and it mentions that Mega Man tries to kill Dr. Wily and Wily reminds him of the First Law of Robotics. That blew my mind. I never knew Mega Man was an Asimovian robot and was bound to the Three Laws of Robotics.

Which three laws ?

Posted by B.K.

Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics.

First Law: A robot may not harm a human being or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

Second Law: A robot must obey all orders given to it by a human being, unless such orders conflict with the First Law.

Third Law: A robot may protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Cacildo´s Note: Here´s a interesting description of this very scene that i took from wikipedia:  The video games Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X reference Asimov. In Megaman 7, Mega Man seemingly attempts to break the First Law in order to kill the mad scientist Dr. Wily. When Dr. Wily reminds him of the First Law, in the Japanese original, Mega Man obediently puts down his Buster and is silent; however, in the English version, he claims to be “more than a robot” and again attempts to kill Wily, but is thwarted by another robot, Bass. In Mega Man X, the First Law is mentioned in the opening cutscene. In Mega Man X6, one of the Maverick bosses, Shield Sheldon, was known to have taken his own life for failing in his purpose, which breaks the Third Law, though this is implied to be more out of shame than because of the laws.

Cacildo´s note: Really love this one. I remember this boxart as something terribly ugly, like the original SFII boxart, but only after this post i noticed the Dhalsim cameo

Cody´s infinite

Posted by PepsimanVsJoe in 09-14-2008, 09:57 AM

In Final Fight Cody has an infinite.
Basically all you do is do the first two punches of his string, turn around(away from the enemy you’re infiniting) and whiff a punch, then do the first two punches again, repeat until boss dies.

Here’s the kicker though.
In Street Fighter Alpha 3 one of Cody’s super moves has him doing just that! 

Cody’s final fight infinite:

I can’t seem to find a decent vid of Cody’s SFA3 super but do his QCF QCF+P one and boom. His first few attacks will show him doing his FF infinite.

Cacildo´s note: I remember seeing the older kids doing this in the arcade… but most of em did this “infinite” trick with Guy!!
