So fucking hyped, damn! Are you? I amm, these are my favorite characters and combos and other badass King of Fighters info.
Damn i'am so excited these are my favorite king of fighters characters first off is kim he is a very good player for both noobs and veterans the most thing that stands out about him is his stance his tae kwando rock stance damn that shit is badass kim for me is probably one of the best players he has 3 sons that are even more sicker than him kim jae hoon can deliver kicks flowing with fire kim dong hwan can kick you with electricity it would of been tight if kim kapwhan would of acquired one of these powers kim also apparently has a relative that could slice stone with his kicks his name is jhun hoon his supposed to be a better practitioner than kim but kim would smoke him his style is more traditional kim is 5'9 weights 172 pounds the reason i like kim is.
Because if your a veteran you get so used to his moves i used to look at people in the arcades in California play with him and its like there so used to using him that they for get his range and just play cause there so used to playing with him that they attack more than they defend i like using his neri chagi kick combined with his tornado kick like real super fast so you could see how aggressive i get with his moves then i know your scared and his kicking combinations are so fluid I've never seen anything like them here look at some combos of his look this guy is getting psycho with kim that's fucking dangerous playing with him fast is way more technical i think these are Japanese players that SNK sponsors for tournaments note everything i said about kim is shown here in this video.
My second favorite player is joe higashi holy shit when i use him i like to link his teep kick which is the kick to the stomach then i link it with his kick to the ribs then i link that with his tiger knee or tiger kick i do this so much its fucking badass the way he finishes this combo and steps back in to his fucking badass muay thai stance that i do it again i'am just super fucking aggressive with his combos that if i have you cornered your fucked you see joe is both defensive and real fucking offensive in my opinion because his short range punches chain well with his strong kick and his strong punches chain fucking kickass with his kicks lol his beast thus making him good in defense and offense his tornados will rip you apart if you let them joe in my opinion is not that good but in the right hands they will use this all together and confuse and disrupt making joe higashi a very dangerous opponent who do you think is better joe higashi or adon from street fighter? i think joe higashi you cant compare them with sagat cause he is tall disadvantage there here are some killer joe higashi combos and other cool stuff.
Okay the gameplay is real sick as for those who don't know king of fighters 13 is a fighting game now the controls on the Xbox i think are way more simpler than the ps3 controls i think i don't know ill will post info somewhere in here later now lets talk about the differences between street fighter and king of fighter to give you some more insight on the badassnice gameplay of king of fighters street fighters graphics are like 3D and king of fighters graphics are hand drawn 2d graphics which gives it that arcade feel street fighter has some badass combos but king of fighters has better ones i think that king of fighters gameplay is solely based on combos not strategy like street fighter king of fighters is more fast paced than street fighter theres a lot more action the sprites are fucking badass they give it that Japanese arcade feel its eye candy street fighter is a lot slower also the specials are way more hardcore than street fighters and in king of fighters your able to pick three of your favorite characters which adds to the time you play each match also they have a new ex super meter this shit kicks ass it actually doubles the power of the characters fireball like for example joe higashis tornados do more damage twice the damage a normal one does he throws three that's fucking awesome the levels have more space to fight in snk has also included one of the fucking baddest meters and cool to watch meters of all time the hyper drive mode which allows you to cancel as many times as you want sick bro lol damn can you imagine the matches people will have at home with that meter now what i want to talk about is the neo maxmeter this is the most wicked shit ever bro's this right here makes your characters special into a super super special for example joe higashis special is a tornado well when you use the neo max meter the special does triple damage than what the normal one does the neo max makes the game into a arcade beast don't be a jimmy tell us what you think .
KOF XIII has been pushed back :(
KOF XIII was originally supposed to be released on October 25th 2011 but plans have changed. It has been pushed back to November 22 that is a whole extra month fans will have to wait. I feel that this is a bad move from snk/atlus because they put this low profile game in with high profile november releases. Games like MW3, UMVC3, Uncharted 3, WWE 12, Zelda Skyward Sword, Assassins creed revelations and Elder Scrolls V skyrim are all being released in november. I think this move REALLY hurts KOF XIII's chance to make an impact which i feel it really needs to do. This game is a underdog among giants and im pulling for the little guy so with that being said i'll leave you with the newest trailer released today to help hype you guys up. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy!

My[Arthvader] preview for The King of Fighters XIII. An in-depth look at the most important reasons why Arthvader is hype for KOF13.
With The King of Fighters XIII coming this November, I'm soo hyped up for this game. I've been a fan of the series since 94, and from the looks of it, I'm sure it'll be one of the best one yet. Here's the trailer:
The story takes place after the event's of KoF XI. Ash Crimson has just recently managed to claim two of the three power held by the decedents of those who sealed the Orochi 1,800 years ago (Chizuru Kagura and Iori Yagami), while leaving Kyo Kusanagai to be his final victim. As Elisabeth Blanctorche, a former comrade of Ash, prepares to stop him, fighters from around the world received a letter with an invitation to another King of Fighters tournament tournament, in which it's be hosted by a person being simply labeled as "R". This person is Rose, the sponsor of the tournament, who is currently being controlled by "Those from the Past", the organization behind the two previously held tournaments that has been trying to break the seal of the Orochi.
Let's talk modes first. The game will have the following modes: Story, Practice, Challenge, Customize, Tutorial, Replay, Gallery, and Online.
In the Story mode, you can view events from the perspective of multiple characters, and it will be influenced by the decisions you make, as well as your battle results. when it comes to battling the CPU in the story mode, you'll be given random objectives, or Target Actions, which when completed, will give you bonus points, as well as some bonuses for the next round. Also, pre-battle dialog will be shown during the single player mode.
With the Tutorial mode, newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game. the tournament sponsor Rose will explain the basic controls of each character, as well as the importance of each gauge.
The Challenge mode will consist of three modes within itself: Survival, where you fight for as long as you can, Time Attack, Where you pretty much just play through the game for the fastest time, and Trial, which you perform various combos with each character.
The Replay mode is where you can view replays of matches you saved after battles. I don't know yet if you can watch replays with friends yet.
The Gallery is, well, it's self explanatory. in this mode, you can view various pieces of art done by the staff.
Another neat feature for this game is the fact that you can customize the character's colors to whatever you want. Sure, at first, there won't be as many colors available at first, but as you keep playing the game, more colors will be available, allowing for unlimited customizations. the best part is, you can use those customizations in online play.
The next thing I'll mention is gameplay changes. First of all, the following gameplay mechanics from the previous game were removed for this game: the Critical Counter system, the the Clash system, and the dynamic, zooming camera. In the place of these mechanics, the following systems and changes has been added:
- The EX Mode: Players will be able to use powerful version if their moves for the cost of one meter for EX Desperation Moves, and two meters for EX Super Desperation Moves.
- The Triple Cancel: this mechanic allows players to unlimitedly cancel their character's moves. the Triple Cancel is dependent on the Hyper Drive Gauge.
- The Hyper Drive Gauge: A three-tier gauge which will gradually drain as player cancel the moves. Whenever the the gauge reaches the max, the player will then go into a state called "Hyper Drive Mode" in which players will be able to cancel unlimitedly for a short amount of time.
- Neo Max Desperation Move: whenever the player is in the "Hyper Drive Mode" while having at least three power stocks, they'll be able to pull off this powerful technique. Players can also link this move into a combo, in which you'll do a "Max Cancel".
All I have to say is this, the songs in this game are soo totally badass. Instead of having generic songs for the stages, we get back songs for each team. Not only that, each team's theme, in my opinion, sounds like it belongs with them. Listen to Team Japan's theme here, and see for yourself:
As you can see from the image above, you can tell that the game improves on the graphics. The game will feature a total of at least 8 new hand-drawn stages, while returning stages from the previous game will get a visual upgrade. each characters themselves will have at least 20 different colors to choose from, all of which looks really nice, while some characters might have head swaps (Raiden & Takuma, I'm looking at you), and if the twenty colors aren't enough, you can use your own customized colors (I explained customization mode in the gameplay section of the preview.)
Final Verdict: HYPED!!!
Even though the game won't be out just yet, I'd say BUY IT!!!!!
Also, pre-order this game to get a special 4-disk set consisting of KoF music spanning the whole franchise.
Before I go, here's some videoes of high level KoF XIII players (I found these on iplaywinner's youtube page):

Where's your hype for KOF13? I still don't fully understand MvC3 or SSF4AE, do I really need another fighter?
I've always been a fan of SNK and NeoGeo and stuff. When I was a kid they always seemed like the underdog compared to the big boys. Who doesn't want to be Terry Bogard for a day? Hell, I think I changed my name to Terry Bogard in one of my High School yearbook pictures. Can anyone confirm? Shit, I'll have to go dig this out now.
