This idea popped in my head just now and I thought I should just go with it. I'm sure everyone in here has played a plethora of different fighting games from way back. And I'm sure everyone has some great memories about them as well. So let's talk about them! We'll pick one fighting game per week and talk just about that one gem of a game. The more personal we can get the better. Did you become a fan of a certain character because of particular game? Or did you begin to hate some character for some reason in that game? Does a song in it bring back memories of good old times? Did you love the game even though you only had access to a sub-par console port? Or maybe you just regret selling it to buy another game you wish you had never bought. Let's share these stories. Hey c'mon! [b]And now begins the epic drama[/b] [i]Ultra Deadly Attacks meet the Hidden Power. This is the long-awaited Real Bout![/i] Let's start off by talking about REAL BOUT GAROU DENSETSU. RBGD is a game I own for three different consoles for some reason. I was so into the game at one point (must've been in 2012) that my girlfriend back then made custom wrapping paper from Shinkiro's art to wrap my birthday present in.

For me RBGD is one of those games that I can enjoy even if I'm playing it against the CPU. Garou Densetsu in general trumps all other fighting game series in that regard, IMO. Maybe that's why I have Real Bout for the Playstation, Playstation 2 and Saturn. I was so happy to find a Hong Kong release of the PS1 version last December while going through video game stores in the New Territories looking for old games. Just because it's Real Bout and because it's the HK version. I don't have any better reasoning for buying it. The manual for the HK version has translations of all the special moves in English which was a pleasant surprise. What does Hishou-Ken actually stand for, does anyone know? Because I doubt it is egg-beater-blast.. I remember sitting on the HK MTR and reading the manual with a smile on my face when I tried to imagine who was responsible for the English translation. The first page starts off with: [QUOTE] Greetings. Hey, guys. Thanks for choosing REAL BOUT GAROU DENSETSU for PlayStation. Before you start playing, folks, will you take a careful look through this manual and see how things work? And also, don't lose this manual. It's got full of handy help, ya know. - Oh, while reading this masterpiece, you may want to read the manual of the PlayStation. - Hey, note that some of the pictures used here come from the video arcade version. Well, they sort of make my job a lot easier. [/QUOTE] Oh what an innocent and casual world video games have once existed in. Well, I don't want to spill all my lone wolf beans in one post so I'll pass on the mic... EDIT: fixed typos.
