Funny how people seem to take interest in seeing more of the same. Neo Geo Battle colosseum is something NEW, and KOF 94 rebout, while technically old, might still be interesting. Personally, I am glad they are taking a break and waiting a year, then we might FINALLY get an entire facelift for KOF that hasn't been seen since the transition of 95 to 96.

uh, a new kof has come out every year about this time since 1994, you start asking/wondering/thinking about it around this time because you know it's coming anyway, about now it looks like it might not be actually, so there's something else to talk about.

also, NGBC is hardly new anyway,

Of course KOF is expected, but what I am saying is, ever since KOF 2000, generally people have been upset every year. Are they waiting in anticipation to see old Iori sprites and be upset again?

The interest behind 2k4 has 4 sources...possibly more:

1. It's that time of the year.
2. It's the 10th kof.
3. It's gonna be on Atomiswave.
4. It's not Neowave but the sequel to 2k3.

Please feel free to add on.

6. if it is coming out, how are they going to pull off 3 more or less kof's standing there at the same time?
7. i know what kof is, i don't have anything to get upset about

9. (seriously) There were many exciting cliffhangers that I think a lot of people want to see answered in 2k4 (AoF Team's ending, K' team's ending, Sacred Treasure team's ending, etc) And plus the always there possibility of new characters both familar and original (plus the "shadows" in all the endings.

10. A chance to improve the tag system further (though they're doing this with NBC so it's not a big deal)

NGBC is supposed to play very differently from 2003 (or at least that´s what the rep said). The ammount of hits in Tung´s and his DM also make it seem more over-the-top...

I am all in for the original KOF to take a break, and I certainly won't miss it a year or two. It gets people more excited and anticipate for the next release at an unannounced date. Not a bad marketing strategy move IMHO.

Well, actually if you compare '98 to '03, they're almost totally different games visually with only a few sprite rehashes here and there. The gameplay is also very different.

And this make KOF different from most of the other fighters on the market, how?

NGBC is hardly new, even with Hanzou and Fuuma making a return after all these years.

Well for one thing, we will be seeing fighters resurrected after a decade hiatus. Sorry but some people get tired of seeing Ralf, Clark, Iori, Kyo, etc. year after year after year after year...King of Fighters used to be about bringing SNK's franchises together, but now these franchises are forgotten in their original games and people think of them more as KOF characters since they keep showing up again every year.

KOF has become it's own game now where other titles like Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, Ikari Warriors, etc. don't matter anymore.

well yeah they got this kinda obnoxious attitude after they tossed some story in there. there's really no reason they shouldn't have just kept it crazy, tossing lb and samsho and whatever and just letting it be what ngbc is now. i mean i appreciate and follow the supposed kof narrative as much as the next guy, but it just hasn't done much for us at all as far as bringing us respectable video games.

This is exactly why I'm looking forward to NBC. What I wonder though is, if NGBC will become the next main series, and push KoF away just like what KoF did with Fatal Fury. I mean it'snot just a crazy dreammatch (despite the roster) they're adding new characters and a story. I'm very eager to see how that plays out.

Sorry, you're talking to a guy who played six Mega Man games on the NES and graphic upgrades and adding something new never once was a complaint.

Some of us like the "same old" in certain games.

If it's still fun to play, then I'm in agreement. If it isn't, then it really draws attention to other possible flaws (like dated graphics).

I still play CvS2 because of that reason. The game is flawed with a lot of rehashed sprites, but it's still a thrill to play.

You don't want to see the staple KOF characters to return? In what videogame series do the staple characters not return? KOF is one of those games where the roster actually tends to change more than the other fighting games. Just look at 2k3 as an example.

You want to see LB2 and Samsho etc. characters in KOF...NGBC comes to mind. As for saying KOF is lame or KOF has become its own game. No and yes. If you want old series like Ikari, AOF etc. to return then maybe SNKP can finally afford to do so financially. They said numerous times that they'll create new franchises as well as bring back old ones. Do you have a point?

It doesn't. That is why I think Capcom Fighting Jam looks pretty boring in my book. Where is the Unknown Soldiers, the Arthurs, the Slammasters, etc. It could have been great if they had ressurected these old characters for a fighter, but no, they just have to Mugenize their existing sprites, ooh finally, Demitri v.s Ryu! Never thought I would see that one!

No, it is not about popping in 19th century samurai warriors into KOF, rather it is mixing the roster up more by bringing in more fighters that would still make sense. I mean how many years have people been bitching for Eiji to come back now? What about all the other characters from the AOF and Fatal Fury universe? I wouldn't mind seeing Hon Fu make an appearance. Instead SNK "suprises" us by having King return in 2k3, well it is not like she hasn't been in 8 out of the other 10 KOF games...

You don't want to see the staple KOF characters to return?

sorta...i'd prefer a game to have balls and have staple characters come back with new movelists and such more often, at least when a series is this long, but hey.

In what videogame series do the staple characters not return?

not too many.

KOF is one of those games where the roster actually tends to change more than the other fighting games. Just look at 2k3 as an example.

2k3 is a bad example. 10 games and 1(or so) major system change. they've all had incrimental changes of course, so i'm not saying nothing occured so don't worry about replying with that

You want to see LB2 and Samsho etc. characters in KOF...NGBC comes to mind.

Isn't that what i said? But no not necessarily, it's just that they forgot what the hell kof was in the first place like 3 seconds after they released it.

As for saying KOF is lame or KOF has become its own game. No and yes.

becoming it's own game isn't a criticism, and yeah kof is lame, but i already said i'm a fan, and i follow kof, so you needn't defend it. point is, 90% of game developers lack any kind of vision really.

If you want old series like Ikari, AOF etc. to return then maybe SNKP can finally afford to do so financially.

hell no, i do not want that at all.

They said numerous times that they'll create new franchises as well as bring back old ones. Do you have a point?

Neither has really occured. Nifty.

Anyway, doesn't matter if people are going to complain or not, because they'll definitely keep buying it, they need an excuse to complain after all. snk, kof especially, has been robbing people like 300 times harder than capcom, and capcom gets such a worse rep for it, just because snk is the "underdog". Like Capcom is actually in position to be some kind of monopoly all wacky. Again, everyones gonna buy the stuff anyway, so obviously criticism is all anyone has left.

So 94 plays just like 96 which plays just like 99 which plays just like 2003? Sorry but hell no. KOF changed enough in 10 years. Not everything was good, but it certainly changed.

If KOF changed completelly every chapter like you want, why the fuck would they call it KOF?

Constant, radical changes would not only alienate the fans gameplay-wise, but character-wise too. We would have flops bigger than SF3, AOF3 and Garou.

Sorry, i'm not a fan of taking the bitch way out, risk flops, keep integrity. garou and sf3 are god damn badass games, doesn't matter. Also, not exactly true with street fighter, street fighter did incrimental changes to street fighter, ALL WITHIN 2, they didn't pretend every version of SF2 was a sequel, that's the difference between the kof situation and that. Even alpha was relatively cool about it.

Anyway, yeah, i'd prefer projects that look like they actual have passion behind them as supposed to, Group of Characters 2002-85.

99 was a huge change and it alienated a lot of fans but SNK ran with the whole K' and NESTS and strykers idea anyways and risked a lot.

"I thought I just made a point of saying there were incrimental changes? Shut up."

I think the point is that those changes were more than "incremental." Anyway, I also disagree with your Zelda and Metroid being same thing. But hey to each his own. Please let me into your pretigious university. (^_^)' I love Guilty Gear too and bought GGXXR the first day but we all know what Isuka is. Neowave and what not are along the same lines you know? Anyway we've drifted way off the original topic's question- which was already answered.

do you mean the nests story/theme was risky and alienating or 99's gameplay? which you're right, i totally forgot about strikers, that was fairly different.

and i dont mean zelda and metroid are actually the same thing.

but heh, i'm still relatively for isuka. i appreciate that it's a focused thing, there's no reason not to play it with like 4 guys, that to me makes it different than a rehash, like neowave or whatever. but honestly, as much as it hurts people, and as much as i think guilty gear characters are gotdamn amazing, i kinda wish they'd kill some or change movelists or go nuts somehow in the next title.

And i'd give you that the changes were more than incrimental, but there are just too many kof games really, it's too hard to accept all of them at this point. It really was (besides per arc) just tightening up the same game pretty much. Not like Kof94Turbo level of incrimental, but still.

I noticed some of you guys said things about which characters they'd like to see in some series or why it's better for some characters not to be in some series....

KoF (the way I see it) was just an excuse to make a tag team game, and with already established franchises why not add them to the game to add sales? That's why we don't see Terry as a main character in KoF I think KoF has always been there to be it's own franchise and throw in a couple of old characters into the game. I mean if the case was to make it the SNK crossover game why was Geese never the Boss (not counting NeoWave of the 1st Fatal Fury)....

I just wanted to say this.... Remember how Neo And Geo made it to KoF 2000. I always wonder if the White guy and black guy from the intro to SF will ever make it to the game. I don't know I always felt these guys should make it into a game, and if they are they should either make it into Fighting Jam.

KOF had a sequel every year. Each arc had a different style. Hell, the first arc had two, actually. I guess that´s not enough for you.

Would you prefer if they called them "KOF: First Arc, Part One" or "KOF 1.1" Instead of the year the game is released?

Nope, I didn't imply that. I didn't say how street fighter did it was ideal either. If you don't mean that, I don't get your point, year title is about as appropriate as it gets. Doesn't change the fact that everyone is pretty much settling because no one is stepping up on this.

Well I thought about it some more, and it's not that a yearly title is entirely a bad idea, it's just that it was a bad idea for it's time kinda. There was no way for it to not more or less rip everyone off, and so i don't know if i should consider it lame, or ahead of it's time. Probably kinda both.

The thing is, the changes in gameplay, outside of arcs, is relatively incrimental, and no that doesn't mean they should call it arc1 part2. I can't figure out the word for what it is that changes so much from game to game, because it isn't the damn gameplay. I don't think it can be summed up in one word maybe, I'm not sure. One thing that pisses me off is that no one would care if i was just like HAHA KOF2001suxorz y waz da musik so badz? But the idea that somehow these guys didn't construct the perfect fighting game experience is blasphemy, or at least because i'm saying it. You guys don't seem to realize I'm sorta the most reasonable human of all time, but I think about things, so I think I'm allowed to make criticisms. I also think I could do better, and have much to say because of that.

I guess I'll break it down loosely the way I see it.

Kof94=Kof1

Kof95=Kof1Plus

Kof96=Kof2 (and badass as hell by the way, completely new hero style, boss team, relatively exciting music, DMs don't feel so damn akward.

Kof97=Kof2Plus (honestly this is fairly true even though this games story and presentation basically make it one of the coolest ever.)

Kof98=Kof1+2 Reload

Kof99=Kof3 (i didn't give this game enough credit earlier, they toss away the main characters, make a new hero team, new story, new atmosphere, new music/style, new bosses. STRIKERS, and a really shitty backstep system.)

Kof00=Kof3Plus (yep, shut up)

kof01=Kof3.5 (Almost a new game, but it's really just a loosely fitting title in the middle of nests hell kinda. mind you, i probably like 01 more than anyone, but i find this game hard to categorize. It's actually almost enough new characters to consider a major new thing, but no one actually likes anyone from 00 or 01 so it doesn't matter.)

Kof02=Kof1+2ReloadReload+a (i'm sure you get the point.)

Kof03=Kof4 (even though this game feels like it has the lowest humanly possible production values, it's definitely new. Tag, Hero, story, blah blah, it's the core for the rest of this arc, or maybe just the start of a nonannual kof, and thus a standalone, and thusly kinda less acceptable feeling game, if it isn't gonna get touched up.)

KofNW=Kof1+2ReloadReload+aReload (sigh)

KofMI=KofEX

hey, 4 games over 10 years really isn't bad.

edit: this'll be the post i make that more than 2 people react to i bet.

No, no one will react to it. Wait, I reacted. So no, only one person will react to it. Unless I'm asleep at this late hour and only dreaming that I'm reacting.

And besides, I pretty much agree, and I mostly like KOF. After ten years, it does feel like a bunch of Hyper KOF and Super KOF II and KOF3 Second Impacts.

Blending the various SNK fighters was lost long ago, when SNK dropped their other fighters for KOF. The yearly release schedule prevents them from doing too much, as does too much fan catering about the roster.

The roster... Even with the incremental engine upgrades, SNK could have managed variety with the roster. Upgrades to the engine combined with different character styles is more of a new game than just upgrading the engine or upgrading the roster. But SNK was too afraid to really shake up the roster, mainly momentarily shedding a minor character, and then bringing them back immediately.

I'm not saying that they should ditch half the roster for new guys each game, but with yearly releases they could manage to have guys like Kyo and Terry and such flat out not be around every single game. No Kyo and no Kyo clones in the first part of Nest. Have Andy lead the Garou team one year when Terry vanishes, and without Joe either. Have Eiji show up with two new (and different) ninja characters for revenge on Iori. Don't put Rugal in 2002, but bring him back for the third KOF dreammatch. And after 10 years, guys like Krauser, Geese, and Mr. Big should have had more than one appearance, though not necessarily on the same teams or even the same games.

Give the individual games more reason to exist than just the story advancement (or more likely, just to make more money). Make the rosters a distinction as well, and use that for prepping for the next dream match. And get some variety in the dream matchs too.

Or kill the yearly release schedule, spending ever how long it takes each time to make a "new" game that looks and feels like a new game. But that won't happen, as SNK-Playmore isn't going to give up yearly income from the next KOF release. Heck, instead of actually making new franchises, they've planned to dump three extra KOF on the market this time. (Along with their double milking of SamSho, releasing the half-planned hodge-podge of SS0, and then quickly releasing for more cash a less than half hearted upgrade. At least old SNK tried a real fix to SS3 with SS4...)

eh yeah, sometimes i say things just to get people to say some disagree-related thing just so i can have an excuse to say what i want. i kinda forgot this isn't gfaqs anyway i guess, so you're probably right. I find that no one challenges things i say here besides the last couple things i said yesterday since i've been posting here kinda though...so ::shrug:: Yanyway, Yeah I think I meant to call Kof01 kof3 3rd strike or something, but i forgot. You more or less said stuff that i forgot though. I really only mean things harshly in the sense that i don't understand the kind of people in charge of video game development today, otherwise, i'm just saying some things i think about, kof has been pretty fun.

i have a feeling you're getting away with something in that sig but it's just under our radar. like they're having musclesex or something. that's not cool, man. One of them is even doing the one-eye anime wince thing. I guess he's the girl in the relationship?

Actually, they do, but separately. They are from two different games, but I hope there will be crossover sometime, once their maker finishes wasting his time doing gothico-furry nonsense.
Oh, and musclesex is cool, man. By the way. FYI.

This is gross and offensive, therefore I won't discuss it.

Yeah, it's greasy. that's why it's fun.
And you can cuddle if one or the other have enough chest hair.

Unfortunately, cow-bikinis and cowbell earings don't do it on muscular men.
OR DO THEY ?
