Just like Ninja Gaiden is guy-den, not gay-den. I still haven't managed to retrain myself though. Too many years of saying it wrong since the NES days.



Yeah, same here. I say it the wrong way even knowing better.

I'm that way with Zangief. I just pronounce it "Zane geef", because I can't be bothered to pronounce it "Zan gee if".

I'm guilty of all of the above as well.

Which makes me wonder: is it "Mar-e-oh", or "Mair-e-oh"?
I've asked my Italian girlfriend this and even she has no idea of the correct pronunciation...

I don't think so. It protects the poster and makes it look nicer. I wish I had my posters framed.


I agree. I have a gorgeous Kingdom Come poster that I adore, and it's framed. It's not the greatest frame, but it helps protect it.


Glad to know I'm not the only one then. Now to find a reasonably priced frame~

BTW, it's this one I'm thinking of doing.

i saw this at another website, but does anybody else see any similarities between these two box arts?

i know there were more, but i don't feel like going and searching their site for old posts. but the guy with the knife falling backwards is in both art covers.

in FF2, knife guy is right above haggar's right hip.

I see Dan Hibiki adjacent to Haggar's arm pit, and Cody to the far left with what looks like a frat paddle..??

Both have exactly 1 girl doing a flying kick to the left. As for the guys falling backward with the knife, notice on the FF2 cover it's the one way be next to Haggar's hip and he's a doppleganger of the one on the SoR 2 cover, not the mohawk guy on the left.
