Have they been getting better or worse since Playmore stepped in? I think they're doing okay. At least they're NOT DEAD. They've got more releases on consoles too, for those of us who don't want to spend quarters and be publicly humiliated.

Which ones do you play? I've been taking on NEO GEO BATTLE COLISEUM.

I like old school SNK better

I'm pissed off that SNKP USA canned the Xbox release of KOF94 ReBout.

If it's anything like the PS2 verion, you're not missing anything much. I didn't like the graphics, specially the 'redesigned' characters (even lol'd at some). The controls were bad. The moves are kinda hard to pull off if you're used to the newer KOF's.

The best part about it was the included original version of KoF'94 and a short movie recapping the storylines(!) of past KoF's.

King of Fighters has always been an incredibly broken game series, but Japanese people keep playing them for some reason

How's they're latest 2D fighters? NGBC, SSTenka, KOFXI

7 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-04-28 03:07 ID:BAXYqzN5

NGBC is dead in Japan

KOFXI is a KOF, and thus is doing well

I don't know what SSTenka is

98 isn't really. it has a couple of extremely strong characters, but there isn't much that's overpowering. it's kind of like third strike, but with more useful characters. i think the people who claim that it's inherently broken are just going on somebody else's word, don't really know much themselves about why many of the KOF games are so busted.

nobody, not even series fans, would have bought it. it's just an exact remake of a really weak game. they needed to put the game in a double-pack with neowave.

KOF's controls have been getting better (or more "Capcom-ized"?) as the years go by. I played nearly every KOF starting with KOF'94. Now, I'm into the current ones like NGBC, KOF'03 and Neowave. I found it strange that when played REbout '94, I could hardly pull of any special moves! I mean, it wasn't a walk in the park back then, but it's nearly impossible for me now.

I think the KOF (console version) with the best controls was KOF'99 Evolution for the Dreamcast.

I actually used to love KOF, but after KOF2003, I just quit playing. The series is seriously unbalanced in more aspects than just characters (Technical things that most people don't care about anyway)

I think the reason why it's still popular in Japan is because they care more about having fun rather than winning. In every other country in Asia (like Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong) tournaments banned Duo Lon, but he was never banned from any tournaments in Japan. This kind of shows what their attitude is towards the series

How is this game?

The most authoritative fighting game tournament TOUGEKI'06 -Super Battle Opera- is going to start tomorrow.

I wish they would just stop whoring out KOF and Metal Slug and make Garou Mark of the Wolves 2 already. Falcoon said it was 70% done on the original Neo-Geo.

I KNOW. Fuck KOF, I want to kick Geese Howard's ass again.

By the way, is Southtown located in California, Louisiana, or Florida? I'm sure it doesn't snow down there.

Southtown is basically San Francisco or Los Angeles. Some southwestern town. Officially, though, it isn't located in any particular part of the US.

My friend is a hardcore KOF player, he played the games since the start of the series and I trust his judgement on these stuff. He almost broke off playing KOF when 03 came out because it was really bad (timing, control and the changeable characters). But I managed to try KOF11 and he was pleasantly surprise. So I guess SNK is returning to their better days...

I do agree that they need to diverse their games though if they need to survive. Fatal Fury, Garou and such. Plus they should really be doing other types of games too, maybe remake games like Windjammer again.

And their touching game for the DS might be a step in the right direction...

I know. But it's pretty cool thinking about that though.

Actually, during Fatal Fury Special pre bout With Geese on VS screen, I saw Louisana as his stage, but that's hard to say, because I can't seem to tell if he actually owns a boat with all of those Kami Statues floating down the Mississippi.


I second that thought. It would also be cool if they make a Dream Match Fatal Fury game with a bunch of the cool places Southtown has and the totally kickass music redone and arranged.
