Ahh... Fighting games. Probably one of my biggest gaming passions behind RPGs. Kinda' funny how they are so far at the opposite ends of the spectrum, but I digress. I haven't really stayed too current on Fighting games. I do have a few favorites:

2D Fighting Games:
Night Warriors - Darkstalker's 2 was an often played backdrop to many afternoons of VS play. This one was also at the lounge of the Jr. College I went to at the time, and there was a trio of use that used to terrorize the morning students on this on a consistent basis. The Saturn version of this was arcade perfect. Favorite Characters: Felicia, Morrigan, and (when I want to just piss people off) Sasquatch and John Talban.

Samurai ShoDown 2 was the other fighting game next to Night Warriors at the lounge. This one was a backdrop fro either epic vs battles or pitiful one-sided beatings. Favorite Characters: Ukyo, Genjuro, Haohmaru, Jubei, and Wan-Fu (the last two are my "teaser" characters).

MKII was the defining MK experience to me. Not only was it a complete revamp and expansion of what worked for the first MK, it was didn't cross into the line of cheesiness. Once MK3 came out and they began using the "dial-a-combo" system, I dropped the series. When they made the simple hammering of buttons in sequence more rewarding and damaging than the juggles that took a lot more skill to do, it killed it for me. Favorite Characters: Jax, Kitana, Scorpian and Liu Kang

After that I didn't keep up with 2D fighting as much. I love the KoF series and many other Neo Geo fighters (Last Blade rocks serious ass), but I kinda' fell away from 2D fighter so I missed a lot of the Capcom Vs. series, and when Street Fighter finally learned how to count to "3." The only great amount of time I spent playing a 2D fighter was when I worked at Nintendo and ended up playing multiple rounds of Killer Instinct 2 with the QA guys who played the game for a full year before it came out on arcade.

3D Fighting Games:
Tekken 5 is definitely the best in the series. After they almost completely buried the series with Tekken 4 (if you haven't played it, just skip it), Namco went back and re-did Tekken from the ground up. With all new looks and animations (which eliminated the majority of the "shared" techniques) it gave me a reason to dive into the series again. Favorite Characters: Law, Kazuya, Paul, Nina (offensive monster), and King. Although a lot of times I would play Haohwrang, Lee, Ganryu, Asuka, Bruce, Bryan, Steve and Christie to really mix things up. Lee, Bryan, Bruce and Steve were absolute death on stages with walls. Bruce has a combo that will completely drain 100% of the opponent's health and kill them straight out if you connect with it on a stage with walls.

Virtua Fighter 4 Evo is the other 3D fighting game of choice for me. I have been completely in love with the VF series from its inception, and VF2 completely cemented it for me. While VF3 was good (and arcade perfect on the Dreamcast) it wasn't at the same visual level of other games release at the time (namely Tekken 3 and Soul Caliber). VF4 came out and then Evo followed after it with a larger and more completely diversed set of characters. It may have a deeper learning curve than Tekken, but there are few things as frantic and brutally beautiful than a match between 2 good VF players. Favorite Characters: Jeffrey, Jackie, Pai, and Kage (most folks don't play Kage and I love giving people fits with him). I would have listed 5, but I haven't played it.

Fighters Megamix was a Saturn-only compilation of the Virtua Fighter 2 cast and Fighting Vipers with many other great cameos of other AM2 games. It was a grand mash-up before they came in vogue and the action was frantic, brutal, and (unlike most VF games) player-friendly to control. Where VF had the technique and crisp strategy on hand, FV loaned it's enclosed arenas and physics engine. If you wanted to switch, fine play with the either game engine. Favorite Characters:Wolf, Lau, Picky, Tokio, and Candy.

Project Justice for the Dreamcast is still regularly played by me and my buddies to this day. Lots of double and triple-team tag moves make this game great and offers a lot to the frantic gameplay. Add in the fact that combos and supers are extremely player friendly to do, and you've got a lot of damage potential for each character. Favorite Characters: Hinata, Kyoko, Momo (pure evil), Daigo, and Roy.

There are many other 3D fighting games that have come along, but sadly I haven't kept current with them. I absolutely love DOA4, and have Soul Calibur 3 but haven't kept current with either series. I love Last Bronx for Saturn, but Sega dropped any hopes for further additions to that title. I guess I could include UFC (for DC) and Pride FC, but I kind of categorize them differently. Honorable mention also goes to Bloody Roar, The Street Fighter EX series, and countless otehr games I know are buried in the shelves of my game library.

Unless your real good, you ain't stopping my 10 Hit combo, 3 times.

On higher levels of gameplay, 10-hitters are suicide. Everyone can recognize them and take advantage of the breaks in-between.

I have only just really discovered the world of SNK. I knew about SNK but I didn't really know about SNK if that makes sense. I have been reading about the different series and characters, playing some of the games on here but it's not the same with out a controller. I'm hoping to get Capcom vs. SNK 2 tomorrow aswell as Capcom Classics Vol. 1 & 2.

Good idea, CapCom vs SNK II is a very good game, just be sure that if you get the Capcom vs SNK II EO version don't get used to the EO-ISM because it's whack and takes all the skill out of the game!

NeoRageX v.5.0 man... Look it up! Get yourself a PSX-to-USB adapter and you'll be straight.

As far as 2-D fighters are concerned I seriously hate my inability to ever find any good cabinets. Although I did play KOF 2000 on the MAME religiously. It's a beautiful game. I was a an avid fan of K' just because I like painfully large high risk combos that really piss people off.

Onto the realm of 3D. I'd have to say Tekken is my outright favorite. I'm a player of Hworang and King exclusively. I like the ability to more or less touch an opponent and open up a chain of combos that just don't end. Plus there is a definite lack of good King players so it gave me something to work towards.

Ahh fighting games... I grew up on this stuff. There were so many fighting games I have played through and the two series that really keep me playing to this day are the Street Fighter Alpha series and 3rd Strike (parrying can make the game so deep if you bother to get good at it.)

Does anyone remember Zero Divide for the original Playstation? Man I remembered when the original playstation did not have many fighting games and Zero Divide was all I had lol... not too many good memories of that game cause the computer AI was so rigged.

There is also news of Street Fighter 4 coming out as well. I am assuming the game is crossing over to 3d seeing as how 2d is slowly fading away (which is a very sad thing.)

I d/l'ed NeoRage the other day but I couldn't (be bothered to) work it out. How does the adaptor work? Is it to connect your playstation to the puter or controller to the puter?

NeoRageX is pretty easy. If you've got the package (probably around 2.5gb) with everything, just unRar it into an easy to find directory. From their send a shortcut of the NeoRageX executable to your desktop, and you should be able to just double-click it fire it up. If you've got the latest package, all the directories and what not will be set up, and all the useable files will already be in place. You simply have to configure the options after you fire the emulator up.

The USB to PSX adapter is a simple USB adapter that you can get from Radio shack for like $10 or so. With it you can plug in any Playstation (PSX, PSOne, or PS2) controller into your PC. I find this is a better alternative to most PC Gamepads (except for the wired XB360 controller as it is completely plug 'n' play). After that, you have a fully functional dual analog controller for the PC.

If you've got the lastest XP/NT/2000 compatible version (5.0 I believe), the UI of the Emulator should look like this:



The greatest thing about this Emulator is that it is 100% with the Neo Geo/SNK/Playmore arcade games, and it doesn't take a beefy system to run. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask and I'll try to answer them.
