SNK

- The nests hen will have the NG version, the DC version, plus something else. Bonus.
- There are still plans to relase a WH collections, Fun, and other NG games.
- Tenkaichi was supposed to be the last 2D Samurai Spirits, but ultimately, the point is not what SNK wants to do, but what the fans want to play. So they will listen, and develop accordingly.
- Nejibako 2 ? "maybe".
- MOTW2 ? "maybe not MOTW 2, but definitely a game that will expand and end the story began in MOTW."
- They would like to do a game with only the SNK heroins. Maybe in 3D.
- Yumeji might very well be a man.
- The young man that becomes mizuchi is not Chris's clone ; it's a weapon created by WAREZ.
- It is not impossible to have another collaboration with Capcom.
- They are waiting to see how the 360/PS3/Wii do to make definitive decisions about them.

If only they'd addressed Shion as well. Then again, doesn't Shion's story specifically call her a him? I don't know; I'd rather Shion be an awesome female midboss.

Bullshitfish translates this as: we can progressiveley add all the characters from MOTW in the next KOF games for little work and easy bucks, so we consider this mergure will expand and end the story began in MOTW.

The possibility of SNK Gals Fighters 2 is promising, though. Especially if they add the recent keitai games centered on SNK Gals as well.

While the possibility of more SS makes me happy I'm not sure if ten year old sprites is what I want out of the series. It seems there continues to be a bit of disconnect between my desires as a fan and what SNKP will eventually deliver.

GALS FIGHTERS 2!!!!! YES!!!

...in 3D?----

I would prefer it in awesome 2D, I'm tired of Max Impact 2 bouncing forever tits.

I will miss the SD look in NG Pocket, really.

Miss X and Yuki (Kyo's ex-girlfriend) DEFINETELY need a comeback.

Angel does too, btw

Edit: the original girls from Days of Memories (like Shizuku) would be a EXTREMELY great addition.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. With SNK seeking cash, it would be the most obvious choice to make a DoA fighter and/or XBV spinoff. But yeah , the thought of bouncies stuck in the camera make me wince especially since Gal Fighters was a more comical Fighter like Capcom's Pocket Fighter, not a full fanservicy one like DoA (and like what MI tries to horribly imitate)

Another summarization by remukhan @ CX

quote:

- KOF98 and KOF2002 will come out as singles games (presumably as Rebouts) instead of Online compilations.

- KOF NESTS Hen is delayed because SNK wants to add both NeoGeo and DC versions, plus a bonus.

- World Heroes, Kizuna Encounter/Savage Reign and other NeoGeo games will come out as NeoGeo Online Collections as planned.

- Samurai Shodown Tenkaichi Kenkyakuden was planned to be last 2D Samurai Shodown game, but it all depends on the fans which way they want SNK to take the series.

- NeoGeo Battle Coliseum 2 is not currently in plans, but SNK will develop it if there is enough demand to continue the series from fans.

- Garou: Mark of the Wolves story will continue, but SNK is still looking at the possibility whether to develop MOTW2 or take the story into a new series.

- SNK Playmore is also looking at the possibility of releasing its portable (mobile phone) games outstide Japan, as some of dating sim games with SNK characters have had great success.

- After the success of Playstation game 'Athena' and a portable game 'Athena on Stage', SNK will release another action based game on KOF heroin, tentateively titled 'Athena: Full Throttle". This portable game is expected to come out in July.

- SNK would also like to do a 3D fighting game based on SNK ladies only. (DOA???)

- Yumeji Kurokochi of Samurai Shodown is likely to be a man. But SNK is in midst of verifying it (what the??!)

- In NBC, Mizuchi's original form is not some clone of Chris. But its some kind of weapon created by WAREZ.

- SNK will also port its KOF Pachinko (Slot) Machine games to Portable (mobile) platform.

- It may be possible to renew their collaboration with Capcom, to release (fighting) games with characters of both companies.

- SNK is also looking forward to the next generation console wars before deciding their strategy, since success of each console also varies from country to country.

AFAIK, the events after the Orochi saga involving Yuki are somewhat unclear.

Correct me if I'm wrong but IIRC, Yuki was sacrificed to Orochi in 98, wasn't she? At least she hasn't appeared anymore since then, nor has been mentioned... and I think she's quite an important character in Kyo's background after all the Orochi saga to leave behind.

...this and, obviously, the fact that he's all over Iori of course.

The problem is that Kyo really didn't do anything during the NESTS arc, and not much beyond "looking helpless while shit was happening" in 2003/XI, so characters tied to his background have had even fewer appearances.
But yeah, they are still together.

Yeah, I thought it wasn't going to be released outside of Japan, but we were lucky in the end, just like with OZ. I've never read about the matter, but if the european release has the 60Hz selector (which I think it will have) you could try to import it?

"Random Gals Fighters 2 predictions" , posted Tue 27 Jun 00:14post reply

Since "traps" (as they are dearly adressed in 4chan) have become all the rage lately in Japan (replacing the loli trend -gyargh!!-), here goes my prediction:

Since Miss X already made the cut, I expect some incredibly femminine shota to be included in the roster in order to traumatize us once again like Buri-chan and Culian already did in their time.

Who will be the selected one? Bao for the rejoyce of all the Saigado fans? Neko-mimi-meido Kyo?

Not that it really bothers me, my sexuality now is like a boat set adrift. Thank you internet.

Gals Fighters for Neo Geo Pocket Color was regarded in-game as "Queen of Fighters" (Q.O.F.) already, iirc.

Yes. It's awful. Trash. Absolute trash. Some hardcore Saint Seiya fans like it because it's Saint Seiya, but it's NOT a good game. It's a poorly constructed poorly balanced junk fighting game.

As for Athena, I'm irritated, because I loved the original Athena (mostly for masochistic reasons) and won't be able to play the cel version. As IkariDC said, I'd like to see a port of a number of these games.

That's nice ^^

Hmm, it's a shame the layout of the controls on the PSP make any attempt at a tate mode ridiculously unwieldly since the dimensions of the screen would be great for old shooters like the ones found on this CCC collection.

"Uncut" doesn't mean much, considering they cut like...under a minute of footage (or something), but I'm glad people will finally be able to experience the Japanese soundtrack, which goes so well with the last fight that I swear it was set to it.

I still think that's one of the best fights ever. I've watched it over 100 times, easily. I'm still impressed by how much weight the characters have.

Yeah but in the Vega (Spanish) Vs Chun-Li fight it's exactly the opposite. Ok, so Chun was relaxing with that slow paced music, but it's out of place when the battle begins. With the US soundtrack, I think is the most memorable part of the movie. I'm on fire, now give it to me!

The US soundtrack of this scene just transform this scene into a boring fighting scene that has been seen dozens of time in lots of uninteresting action movies. With the original track, the shock between the action and the music is really what gives it its memorable taste.

I understand your reasoning, also I'm usually a purist who always prefers the original material, but in this case, I think that the US soundtrack gives the scene what it needs. He even calls her bitch!

I'm happy with the DVD, having the film with both soundtracks, you can't go wrong with it!

That's what I thought. From my experience, it's not a popular opinion. Does that mean I'm wrong? Didn't Thomas Jefferson say "What's popular is always right!" Perhaps the lesson is the associate yourself with people that don't disagree with you on anything.

I think you're better off not understanding Bastard. I tried reading it for a while, then gave up and just looked at it.

I haven't played it or anything, but to me it looks like one of those games one or two years ago, when Capcom, Namco and I don't remember who released a few Final Fight - and - clones games, all looking below average. Except this time the game looks really, really ugly.

I mean, come on : the game looks amazingly bad. After kami, it kinda hurts the eyes.
Oh, but when you hit the ennemies, they are sent flying. I think that's the humourous element everyone is talking about.

This game confuses me, like if everyone on earth saw some amazing hidden movies and such, and I missed them and I can't join the fun.

The flying made me chuckle a bit, but it was really the strange dancing, the fat guy tripping and especially axe kicking the midget into the ground, then repeatedly stomping his head that got me. The game is delightfully and shamelessly low-brow.

I don't really think it looks "ugly" like "poor." I think it looks ugly and brown like Hokuto no Ken, which is obviously what it's going for. Also, the motion capture is good, so the characters have "personality" in their movements. It's ugly, but it has style. It has "ugly style" and that's funny to me. It might just be ugly to you.

Of course, I might end up hating the game, but I don't think it looks like a cheap or poor production on any front. I was totally wrong about Okami, though. I mean, Okami is a great "thing", like "work of art", but it's a pretty boring game. It's like going to the museum, only with amazing (FAR too infrequent) boss fights.

For me I've found the Viewtiful Joe games to be pretty but inert. I'm hoping that Okami and God Hand have a greater sense of fluidity to they way they play so I can actually play the games instead of just admiring them from afar. Whether or not God Hand will work for me depends entirelly on how often the game will let me kick people in the crotch. I don't ask for much from my entertainment.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.

Ahhh...man, I didn't notice how incredibly poor and ugly the backgrounds in God Hand were. I'm still sold on the game, but the backgrounds are undeniably crappy. I think Clover got a slap on the hand after spending so much on Okami. Either that, or they put everything into motion capture.

I agree with Polly there. Yes, the backgrounds and the environments are quite poor, but maybe it's that way because it seems they can be destroyed sending the enemies flying? I don't think everything can be destroyed so it isn't like that can be an excuse.

For most of the game there's no challenge, and very little excitement. When you go through what would normally be a "dungeon" you'll only have to fight maybe 2 enemies (which you can kill in 2-3 hits) and you can't really get lost or anything, you just kind of go until you reach the end. Most of the puzzles are only mildly challenging, so it's pretty much just "running around" for large portions of the game.

There are tons and tons of extra things to do to get more experience, new skills and extra items, but there's little motivation to do them. These things just make you stronger...but when you can avoid almost all the enemies with no consequence and bosses are few and far between (not to mention totally easy), then what's the point? At first, I felt intrinsically motivated to do extra things, because I wanted to fully explore the world and make everyone in it happy ("if I don't do this sidequest and help this person, then I'm not doing my job!"), but that gets old after 8 hours or so, especially when "healing" is no longer the focus of the story.

There's a lot of "talk to this person, then go talk to this person" stuff, too. Everyone talks too much. The game doesn't need so much dialogue when it has such a strong visual presence. It's not poorly-written, but it's entirely too much. I'll start reading a scene, then end up angrily pressing the button just to get past it. This isn't AS bad later in the game when there's more backstory going on, but by then, you'll probably be totally fed up with people talking too much and you won't care anymore.

The boss battles are GREAT, though, and there are a few good "dungeons" in the game. To me, the game would be perfect if it had difficult dungeons and bosses that you would be motivated to power up to get through. After finishing a boss, you'd want to "cool down", so you'd be motivated to do all the extra stuff to prepare for the next dungeon. As it is, why do you need to be stronger when you can already kill anything without getting hit?

I can tolerate how boring the game is because it has lots of good points. It's (obviously) very beautiful. More beautiful than it looks, even. It doesn't have any "choppy textures" or breakup. It feels like you're really part of a painting or something. The music is fantastic as well. The control is excellent and boss battles are some of the best I've ever seen. The puzzles are fun and the classical-looking pictures used in cinemas add a really nice flavor. It's like a "masterpiece" that doesn't quite make the cut.

So yeah, it's boring...but it's a great game if you're not looking for something exciting.

You make it sound more like it's a great game if you want something that's pretty.

Contrast with God Hand!

I can't say I'm as enthused as some are with it, but it has looked entertaining so far. Then again, I've just come off an evening that included actually beating a whole level of Simple 2000 THE Miniskirt Police, so I'd say the line between depraved curiousity and genuine interest is kind of blurred for me at the moment.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.


Hmm, I'm not entirely certain I can explain it myself. It's just that when I played the first VJ I was struck by how precise I had to be with everything I did. For example, in a Mario game there's a chance you can progress through nothing more than panicky jumping and blind luck. VJ, however, felt like only by memorizing the only path through could you possibly move forward. Slow down time at the precise moment necessary, dodge the punch of the bad guy only by following the on-screen prompt... at no point did I ever feel like I was being allowed to be creative with how I played the game. I suspect I'm talking through my hat with all this but when I found myself desperately trying to punch a hamburger out of a tiny slot machine I knew this wasn't the game for me.

God Hand, however, looks to have the sophisticated humor and deep social commentary I demand from my games. That, and it features a tiny little dog.

Well, that implies that it only has good graphics. It's beautiful in many other ways. The music, the boss battles, some of the puzzles and a few scenes would still have been beautiful with less-good graphics. It's a beautiful experience...sometimes.

But yes, the graphics are probably the best part. A lot of games, when played in high def sort of...well, it's like their flaws become more apparent, but Okami is pixel perfect.

Ishmael:

I get what you mean. VJ is sort of...mean sometimes. I wouldn't say you don't have any "creativity", but it does demand a high level of precision. I prefer that to "progressing through nothing more than panicky jumping and blind luck", but saying that doesn't necessarily credit VJ's approach.

I'm not just wild about VJ, but I don't think there was really anything "wrong" with it.

God Hand does look fun. Doesn't the theme song remind anyone of Hawaii 5-0? Also co-op would be great but most devs go for online instead.

My friend bought Onimusha 4 because the back of the box said 2p co-op. But he had to slave through a very bad 1p story to unlock it(Compared to 1,2&3). Playing it co-op the second time around was twice as fun; as you could be multiple characters and the mechanics were solid. The camera's focus is freely selectable between the players. We'd be fighting and I'd say "let me have the camera". Wasn't perfect but worked well enough. Even in Sonic 2, I'd be Sonic and my niece Tails. Since Tails is immortal she could always play with me.

Woah, thanks for the feeback! Your posts use to be more information-packed than most magazine reviews.

Anyway, if the game is so artistic and the characters like to talk, I think I'll enjoy strolling around with the doggie, no matter how boring or empty the dungeons may be. Afyer all, Shadow of the Colossus didn't have so much thrilling action neither, and I managed to have fun with it...

I considered Shadow of the Collosus tremendously exciting, and a good portion of it was spent on the fights (and none of it was spent on fetching things). So, I think the only valid comparison here would be if you could say "I enjoyed just running around in the SOTC world, so I would probably enjoy running around in the Okami world as well."

Well, from my perspective at least. I dunno, the point remains that I highly recommend Okami if you don't demand a really exciting action game, so I guess it works out the same.

I think the story in Onimusha 3 was one of the worst I've ever seen in a game. Of course, the execution of that story was a bit more exciting than Oni 4's. Oni4, in my experience with it, felt very "anime". Oni3 felt like a Hollywood movie or something.

This isn't to discredit Oni4, or credit Oni3, though. I'd say 4 had a better story/cast altogether, but it wasn't as exciting or attention-grabbing as 3.

It felt like I had seen or played the plot of Oni4 in some other form; not just with the cliches. I can deal with that, but straight deja'vu, to the point in which I was predicting exact lines. I personally only liked Oni1's story, especially the original Sam character. (becoming is usually more interesting than being). More occult and less fantasy-fantasy. But it may just be 1st-itis.

Yeah... For instance, I know that KoF XII will probably take a long time before it gets released (probably next year), but it would be nice if SNKP released any news about it recently.
Fortunately, Midway has released some news about MK:Armageddon, which is distracting me for now. But I'm really looking forward to KoF XII...

oh, I just don't think they'll announce anything new. Some compilations, maybe. I've lost most of my faith in them, really.

They will at least show more about Card Fighters and KOF XII. That's two original games, and two that might end up good, so that's better than nothing.

There've been 2 years between KoF 2003 and KoF XI, so there may be another 2 years between KoF XI and KoF XII... In other words, I'm not convinced they'll show anything about KoF XII in September.

I wish they would UNshow Metal Slug 3D. I don't think a game has ever been cancelled AFTER it came out, but this is a good time for it to happen.

What do you mean, it's already out ?
Oh god.

... Then, if that kind of thing was possible, I wouldn't mind if they cancelled Shin Megaten Imagine.

Some sort of SNK compilations are coming to the US PS2 according to an article that needs a bit more information over at PSXExtreme.

I'm not sure how much credability this thing has, but it makes sense because SNK USA will be eligable for budget games beginning in 2007.

I'd really love for this to happen, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, if it does happen, the collection coming out would probably be delayed twice and probably cancelled. I just hope I'm wrong. I'd love to have KOF95 and Garou in full working arcade perfectness and in full english. If only SNK Japan had put english options in these games...

I meant things they haven't announced. Like new announced games. But yeah, they'll have the new cfc, I'm sure.

This site claims they're working on a high-res sequel to Garou, but that smells like bullshit.

SNKDavid said not to get our hopes up with the PS2 announcement, which is not surprising.

Also not a surprise is the announcement that Cardfighters Clash DS was delayed for the states until Q1 2007

Re-runs of Arrested Development are coming to MSN Video, HDNet and, oddly, G4TV.
