Some games I would tear open the moment they arrived, others received a cursory look at some screen shots before I dropped them into the "no" pile, where Capcom's series of 2D fighting games like Marvel vs. Capcom always wound up. Why, I wondered, play a 2D fighting game when 3D games like Dead or Alive 4 were available? Wouldn't that be like playing some old game from 1990?
Now that I've played the latest of these games, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, I feel bad about ignoring those previous titles: Tatsunoko turns out to be a blast."
