Yea, the Limited Edition's are sold out at most Gamestops by now. But you should be able to buy the regular editions. It's so dumb for me though because I got the LE version of the game on the release date and my XBOX crashed on me before I even got to play it. It'll be like three weeks before I get to even try it. It's been getting unusually high reviews for being such a niche game. KOF on the other hand is tanking hard.
I can definitely go with "the character(s) that I like aren't in this game" to be a very valid reason to dislike it.. but that review was probably the worst review I've ever read.. aside from it not being more than 3 or 4 paragraphs ( ), he doesnt really touch down in further detail about any of his statements.. mind you he's not a blogger or just a friend giving an opinion.. he's supposed to be getting paid to really detail the games experience on multiple fronts.. and he doesnt even really touch down on the surface...
I think if you're going to call something like KOFXII crap (as with BlazBlue, or SFIV, etc etc).. then I really want to hear some good fairly detailed reasons.. I mean who whines about the background being too busy?... does the author have A.D.D. or something?.. I really don't get it.. the funny thing is, I'm pretty sure SFIV got like a 9.5 or something...
I really wish they'd let fighting game pro's do the reviewing and not just people who want to go for a button-mash romp through story mode, judging it along the way
One time a while back.. gamepro had given Psychic Force for ps1, like a 3.0 or something with a "mediocre" rating, and did nothing but trash the game.. but when I picked it up it quickly became one of my favorite fighting franchises..
DLC can easily pick up the roster if they bother with that though..
anyways.. I checked the DLC for BB yesterday.. and they have like extra colors on sale for microsoft points -_-..... I really wish they were unlockable instead
I KINDA like this game more than SFIV. This game aint as good as a fighter, but man, the presentation is GOOD. This is KOFXII's true rival and knowin' what I know thus far, it seem like this is the best 2D fighter this year. This is IMO, dammit.

dude, this is why i always say: phuck the critics.
critics are ignorant dipshits who go around getting paid for giving opinions just like any other tom, penis and harry in this world only they act like they are unbiased, down the middle callers when anyone with half a braincell can see the gobbets of prejudiced, pre-planned bullshite in their reviews. no one on this planet is unbiased when it comes to things so why assume that critics are?
if reviews are actually done by machines, then there's unbiased critic. but until then this is how it goes:
1. make up your own mind. if you haven't played it/watched it, shut up.
2. never give in to opinions of ANYONE. have you own mind.
3. especially if that's someone is a critic who tells you what to think of a game, a movie or a book because s/he's getting paid for it and somehow that means that he isn't prejudiced and we're supposed to think that they don't have moods, personal issues and pre-conceptions involved in their "critique" and that they are magically aware of ALL aspects of a franchise.
P.S. SF4 got 9/10 on most reviews
P.S.S. this alone chokes to death what ever little respect and hope i might have had for people

First of all, the guy has high damage per hit, yes, but it is nothing compared to that of say, Iron Tager. Who takes nearly a third of your health with one quick, easily pulled-off throw. Also, he is not particularly fast, with his sword at least, and using just that will get you fvcked up bad by anyone who knows how to really play. Because of this, it is a good idea to exploit his ability to do counters, doing this causes damage and can set opponents up for using that soopa strong blade.
