My top 5 favorite female fighting game characters

By: blazemanx Jul 3, 2011 | 6 Comments

My top 5 female fighters they are beautiful, sexy and powerful.

Fighting games have always been dominated by big strong men. In most fighting games females only make up 10 to 20 percent of the roster. Me personally i love women who can kick some ass and even though female fighters are out numbered like 5 to 1 i still prefer the minority. I have here my 5 favorite female fighters there beautiful they kick ass and to me they outshine most men. So without further delay here are my top 5.

Jam Kuradoberi

For those of you who don't know jam is from the guilty gear series. She is hot (obviously) and she is one of the most badass kung fu style characters regardless of gender. She pulls off the whole fighting waitress thing perfectly and she is my overall favorite character in the guilty gears series. She also has a very unique look....just look at that hair. She made her debut in guilty gear X and has been a staple in the series since. If you don't know much about her or guilty gear i suggest you look them up you won't be disappointed.

King

King is originally from the snk fighter the art of fighting. She originally fought disguised as a man and it wasn't until the KOF series that she caught my attention. She is a muay thai fighter and the first female one i remember seeing. Just because she does muay thai don't think she fights like sagat or adon. Her move set is pretty unique and i love her for that. She is my favorite female snk character and i love her taunt " COME ON BABY"

Chun Li

The original female fighter miss chun li set a trend in the fighting game universe. She was one of the original 8 world warriors and she proved that a woman could hang with the big boys. To this day i believe chun li is the most popular female fighting game character of all time. She has a awesome fighting style and she has become one of the faces of the franchise. She is sexy and tough and can kick you ass what more do you want.

Cammy

Cammy is one deadly piece of woman. I remember her when super street fighter 2 came out she was my favorite of the 4 new challengers. She is the second female fighter in the street fighter universe and is a good one. She is from england and was formerly under bisons psycho power control. She is almost as popular as chun li in my opinion. She has a really interesting fighting style that draws players to her. She is also one of the hottest females around no doubt about it.

Crimson Viper

As if you didn't already know, viper is my all time favorite female fighter. Viper first made her debut in street fighter 4 and in my opinion she is the most popular out of all the new comers in the street fighter 4 universe. Going into SF4 i didn't think she would become one of my favorites. In all honesty she wasn't even a favorite of mine until SSF4 was almost out. She has a truly unique style and is one of the hardest to characters to master but that just makes her that much more appealing. She may have not been out very long but she is already #1 in my heart and i look forward to seeing her in more games. Sexy has a new name and that name is crimson viper.

These women show that you can kick ass and be sexy while doing it. What are some of your favorite female fighters? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Review: Arcana Heart

By: blazemanx Jun 26, 2011 | 8 Comments

One of those rare games that you always wanted to play but never knew existed.

Back when this game was on the brink of release i happen to come across it via internet ad it looked awesome so i looked it up. I saw the trailer and thought to myself " I must own this" the gameplay looked awesome and an all girl cast was a interesting change from the norm. Simply put it was money well spent and im here to tell you why.......read on.

Gameplay:

The gameplay is great. At first, you may think that the game plays slowly, due to the fact that no one in this game moves at a very fast speed while walking. However, once you learn of a beautiful little move called the homing dash, things will really start to speed up. In fact, once you and your opponent start using the homing dash, the speed of the game may hit you hard in the face. Furthermore, this game has some of the largest fighting arenas I have seen. They are large enough spanning across, but just wait until you see how high they can get. In fact, if you launch your opponent in the air, rise up to meet them, and launch them again, it seems like you are going up the length of three screens! Let me say that again for emphasis...THREE SCREENS! These large fighting arenas can really make things more interesting, and it doesn't hinder you when it comes to pulling off awesome combos. There is also this thing in the game called the arcana system. With it, you not only choose a character to use, but also the arcana that your fighter will use in battle. This will give them a different set of arcana powers and abilities during fights. With the powers of the arcana, you can perform a wide variety of attacks, that include, but are not limited to, causing lightning storms, leeching your opponent's life, and even seeing them executed! However, you also gain some nifty abilities, like creating dopplegangers, being able to triple jump instead of just double jump, and even raising your defense. Also, there are four modes of play: story, arcade, versus, and practice. Another thing is that there are two actual playing styles. There is the normal Arcana Heart, and then there is Arcana Heart Full.

This is something I feel a strong urge to include, and for my own reasons. First off, let me say that there are those people that feel that the larger the roster, the better the game will be. But check this out...this game fits right up there, if not surpasses, some or most of those games with larger fighting rosters. This game has a total of 11 maidens to choose from. However, with the arcana system, and there being 11 different arcana to choose from, this brings you up to 11 characters with 121 combinations you can make! Not to mention that each characters has eight different colored outfits, so that adds a little more variety to it, as well.

Story:

Some fighting games don't really have a central story. You just go around to different arenas and beat the daylights out of people. However, a strong central story was not overlooked when it came to the making of this game. There is a great atrocity that is going to occur in Tokyo, and each maiden, a young girl who has the power to communicate with the arcana, tries to stop this from happening. Of course, each character has their own personality, so they are all in this for different reasons. For example, one fighter may want to stop these events from occurring because she does not want to lose any of her friends ever again. Another might be in it because she has nothing better to do. Yet another may throw herself into the battle because a large organization asked for her help. However, along the way, you will have to do battle with the other maidens, to ensure that you be the one to bring an end to this series of events.

Sound:

The sound for this game is great. When you hit someone with a light attack, it will sound like you just slapped them hard across the face. Hit them with a power attack, however, and you can hear the difference...the force and sound of the hit literally echo very loudly across the arena. Lightning crashes from the skies above. Rocks crumble as they hit your opponent over the head. Strong winds gust violently across the arena. All of this adds more realism than one would expect from a 2D fighter. A few people say that the music is not that great. However, it's something I don't really mind. True, some of the songs could have been better, but for the most part, it's alright. However, you will hear songs that include a softer song in a garden, an upbeat, nightlife tune for a market, and even a jazzy kind of dance tune. A few of these tunes really add to the atmosphere of the setting, but not quite all of them do. So, yes, I will admit that some of the songs could have used some work, but it's nothing really to complain about, and it doesn't really impact the score.

Graphics:

If you are one of those people that loves anime, then you should definitely look into this game. The characters are drawn in a very anime-like way. That is, until you get to the fights, in which case they lose some of that anime look, but not so much. The backgrounds are very colorful, and when you activate your arcana, they change entirely, giving you a whole new environment to fight in for a short time. Some of the arenas are just a bit plain, but, again, not all of them are, so that's a good thing to know. Arcanas, too, look very cool, and some of them even look a little intimidating. One thing I really want to comment on is the shadows. For many 2D fighters, a circle is just drawn beneath the characters, and you are led to believe those are shadows. However, the designer for this game obviously had a good idea of what a 2D fighter game's shadows should look like. They actually resemble the characters, and they move in the way that the characters do. For example, if a fighter sways back and forth, so will the shadow. If a character is walking, then the shadow will walk right along with them. These effects make the shadows some of the most realistic I have seen in a 2D fighter. When you throw all of this together, the graphics of this game come out to be something that is just pure eye candy.

Final Verdict: BUY IT

Arcana Heart is literally one of the best 2D fighters you could possibly get for PS2. When it comes to buy or rent, this game is easily one that should be bought. If you love animes, buy this game. If you love fighters, buy this game. If you love an all-female cast, buy this game. It is just too great of a game to pass up. So let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.

BigBangBeat -1st Impression Review

By: iorilamia May 11, 2011 | 8 Comments

I love Doujin fighters and not too many people talk about them. Here's my review of a game I've been playing for a couple of years; BigBangBeat. Maybe it will get some of you interested in doujin fighters.

If you aren't familiar with Doujin fighters, they are fan-made fighting games that for the most part you can download for free online. A lot of them are actually pretty good and some are turned into official games (Like Melty Blood). Unfortunately many doujin's don't work well or have sketchy fighting systems. I bring you my review of one of my favorites: BigBangBeat- 1st Impression. A PC game.

STORY:     Well, this game is based off an Adult game called Daibanchou: Big Bang Age  where a black hole appeared in Japan and shit goes down and people have sex. With that being said this fighting adaptation doesn't have a story really, just some dialog between characters in story mode (which is just one battle after another)

CHARACTERS:    BBB is a 2d fighting game with 10 characters (4 secret ones) and all of them are balanced very well and each is unique. Since most people are unfamiliar with it, I'll briefly go through them.

  • Rouga Zanma- Main character in this game and the adult-porn one. Has decent move speed and close range/ medium ranged attacks. All around fighter.
  • Ren Idagawa- Total badass with sunglasses. Rouga's rival and has some thrown projectiles a long with wooden sword. 
  • Senna Kyoudou- Really fast swords woman (In the picture above holding Rouga)
  • Kunagi Tenrou- Very fast ninja-type character. Has some teleports.
  • Heita Zinnai- Decent psysical character but...he is mainly the Dan of this game.
  • Sanzou Kongoumaru- Huuuuuge heavy weight fighter. Amazing Damage. Similar to Potempkin.
  • Burai Yamamoto- The boxer and also has some of the best combos in the game, very up close, strong and fast.
  • Daigo Hotta- UMEHARA! Kidding, he is the kung-fu fighter who's combos are amazing, and more range than Burai, also more versatility. (One of those Bruce-Lee characters)
  • Nakanishi Kendo & Kyudo- Two girls. you mainly play as the one in the foreground that uses a kendo sword, behind her in the background you can slightly control a girl who has a bow and arrow.
  • Agito of the Dark- Psycho wild-haired degenerate who throws knifes.

There are 4 secret characters- A slightly better version of Heita Zinnai( SUPER DAN), Devil Daigo (who is also the final boss and extremely overpowered), a cute little fish named Manbou and  Hammy, an adorable clay-pot who battles. - To get these hold down B-button and press a direction -

CONTROLS AND MECHANICS:    Now that you are familiar with the lack of story and characters, here is how the game works.

The game follows a simple A B C button combinations and familiar controls ; quarter rotations, full circles, half circles and SRK motions.

P Gauge: Orange bar under your health bar. It depletes with the more supers you use. If it is too low you can't do that certain move. The good part is, you can charge the meter back up. Also when it is charged and filled, it will take some of the damage of an attack instead of going straight to your health, it's a bit of a life saver sometimes, but charging is extremely slow.

Attack Power Correction: When P Gauge is full, charge it and rapidly press directional buttons to sacrifice some HP for a power boost.

Super Bar: It's called a "B-Gauge" and works the same way super bars work in every game. Builds by hitting or getting hit. But here is the interesting aspect. When you get hit tiny little diamonds pop out of you (some worth more than others) When you pick them up, a counter goes to your gauge. When gauge fills you have another super bar. It is interesting how it can effect your gameplay.

B Dash: This is a dash is faster and farther than the regular dahses and can be used in the air and cancel into any move! The only cost is that you need 1 super bar to use this dash.

B Counter: While blocking press B button, this lets you escape block stun and fight back.  Costs one point.

B Escape: Straight up break out of an attack. But it costs 4 bars; ouch.

And that is basically it. The game was free when I got it, so I would say " BUY IT" but after being turned over to another company, the only downlaods I can find are torrents and share-sites. The fan sites do have legit patches though.

Heres the hype BBB intro and a combo video uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/cyanidemaniac and http://www.youtube.com/user/ikusat

As far as downloads go, the game was turned over to this company, who have a web version beta of BBB2 currently going but no date for full official release:
