Capcom Power Stone Collection
Capcom resurrects its innovative Power Stone fighting series, re-releasing enhanced versions of both games in this collection for the PSP.
- Multiplayer, unlockable content
- Nothing of note
You'd be missing out on one of the best fighting series from Capcom since Street Fighter if you didn't give this one a whirl.
Price$ 79.95 (AUD)
After more than five years since their original release on the Dreamcast, these 3-D brawlers haven't lost any of their appeal, and with the inclusion of bonus content, Power Stone Collection is an essential buy for any fighting game enthusiast.
For those of you that never had the pleasure of playing either of the games included in this compilation, the Power Stone games can be thought of as Smash Bros. with some hair on its chest. Two fighters spar in fully 3-D interactive arenas, hurling furniture at each other, and even brandishing swords, bazookas, and an abundance of other weapons that can be picked up during matches.
Each character in the game can also transform into a mightier version of themselves after collecting three Power Stones. Transforming plays a crucial role in matches, because the fighter who transforms the most amount of times usually emerges as the victor, unless they fail to land blows in their state of metamorphosis. In both Power Stone and Power Stone 2 you'll occasionally have to face unusual bosses such as the Pharaoh Walker, which looks like the offspring of an ATAT Imperial Walker and The Great Sphinx of Giza.
The original games remain intact, but there are new features as well. In both games, the more characters you beat the game with, the more extra content becomes available. New weapons, movies, some crappy mini games can be earned, and new characters featured in Power Stone 2 can also be unlocked for the original Power Stone. Even if you're not impressed by these garnishes, it doesn't matter because the main courses are more than enough to keep you happy.
Up to four fighters in Power Stone 2 and two players in Power Stone can trade punches via an ad hoc multiplayer mode. The good news is that you and your friends can play each other with only one copy of the game.
The games in Power Stone Collection may be a generation old, but after revisiting these two relatively underrated titles, you won't feel like you're playing outdated games.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
