Weekly Screenshot: Stairway to 天

August 19th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here’s the last of the X-Men: Children of the Atom images, featuring the ultra-oldschool secret character facing off against the CPU-controlled final boss.


COTA Akuma’s invincible Gou Shoryu Reppa passes through CPU Magneto’s Hyper Gravitation while he remains untouchable within his Magnetic Bubble. COTA Akuma is based on his SSF2T appearance, which marks the only instance of an SF2 series sprite in the Marvel series.

Whoever comes up with the best title wins an “Aura Blue” Arcade FightStick TE Keychain. As always, the rules are one entry per person and i’ll choose my favorite on Monday.

    I don’t have a good caption for this one, but despite me not participating in naming screenshots over the past few weeks I’ve been watching them all! They were awesome, thanks for doing ’em for me! I wanna play this game again now, lol.

    “Why are we both at full health?” That timer is mighty strange for the conditions of the screen shot.

    SlimX: Damn, is that how it came off? Sorry sirs, i just copied and pasted what MarkMan called them on SRK. He gave me ten of them to hand out as prizes for people who wrote Evo2k10 logs. Some of those people never got back to me, so i’ll be giving away the rest via screenshot caption contests.

    EasierToRun09: Thank you sir, i’m glad you’re happy with them.

    tobemorecrazy: Haha yeah, that was a pain in the neck to set up. Originally i wanted to do Akuma’s super against Magneto’s Shockwave, but that requires a specific spacing to not look terrible. And no matter how many times i tried, CPU Magneto refused to backdash then Shockwave in the middle of Akuma’s super. But it’s alright, i have a Magnetic Shockwave screenshot already.

    “You Shall Not Pass!”

    This made me think of Ian McKellen as Magneto, and him as Gandalf going up against the demon Balrog in LoTR. Akuma = Demon. It works, trust me :)

    You’d think that someone who likes to fly around all the time wouldn’t have such huge, ripped thighs. Huh? What’s all this about a caption contest now?

    Damn, you guys really stepped it up this time. I really liked a lot of ’em, but narrowed it down to two choices: the Led Zeppelin reference and the Lord of the Rings reference. It’s funny how they’re connected too. Anyway i flipped a coin and Stairway to Heaven won. (Not my favorite Zep song; takes forever to get going, but the last 1/3 is pretty good.)

    Belmont: Please e-mail me your address and i’ll send out your prize within the next day or two. Congratulations!

  37. August 23rd, 2010 at 23:36 | #37

    Just sent out the e-mail. Thanks again.

    Maj, but the hole song is great.I really like to sing the intro on an acoustic.IT’s kinda calm and relaxing, which is a nice break after hours and hours of playing Holy Wars :D

  39. August 25th, 2010 at 10:02 | #39

    Belmont: Your keychain is in the mail as of this morning, sir. Mind posting a quick comment when you receive it? I’m a little worried about the mini-joystick part getting broken, but i wrapped it about as well as i could.

    Smileymike101: I don’t know man, it just bores me. I always fast forward the first four minutes; can’t handle it. If i want a relaxing intro, i’d much rather listen to “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.” Anyway III is the one i like most. Speaking of acousic though, this is pretty dope.

    Keychain arrived just now and the packaging held up nicely and the joystick is in perfect condition. Thanks again.

  41. August 27th, 2010 at 12:02 | #41

    Sweet, i’m glad to hear that. I packed the others the exact same way, so hopefully they all arrived in good condition too.
