Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is a crossover fighting game
featuring characters from Capcom's video game franchises and from
various anime series by Tatsunoko Production. The game was released in
Japan for arcades and the Wii video game console in December 2008. It
was released for the Wii in North America, Japan, and Europe in January
2010, featuring additional characters and an online mode. Players engage
in combat with a team of two characters or with a single giant character
and attempt to knock out their opponents. It is the seventh Capcom-
designed installment in their Vs. fighting game series, which includes
the Marvel vs. Capcom and Capcom vs. SNK series, and the first to be
fully rendered in 3D graphics. The game is designed around a simplified
three-button attack system, which was inspired by the simplistic control
schemes commonly used by both the Vs. series and the Wii. The game
received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised its
approachable gameplay for newcomers and depth for veteran players.
However, reviewers had mixed experiences with its online component, and
found Arcade mode lacking in replay value.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
A cultural inheritance may be acquired between dusk and dawn, and
many have been so acquired. But the new "culture" was an inheritance of
darkness, wherein "simpleton" meant the same thing as "citizen" meant
the same thing as "slave." The monks waited. It mattered not at all to
them that the knowledge they saved was useless, that much of it was not
really knowledge now… empty of content, its subject matter long since
gone. Still, such knowledge had a symbolic structure that was peculiar
to itself, and at least the symbol-interplay could be observed. To
observe the way a knowledge-system is knit together is to learn at least
a minimum knowledge-of-knowledge, until someday — someday, or some
century — an Integrator would come, and things would be fitted
together again. So time mattered not at all. The Memorabilia was there,
and it was given to them by duty to preserve, and preserve it they would
if the darkness in the world lasted ten more centuries, or even ten
