KOF XIII delayed

By: blazemanx Sep 27, 2011 | 125 Views | 6 Comments

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!

Arthvader Previews: The King of Fighters XIII

By: Arthvader Sep 11, 2011 | 426 Views | 4 Comments

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:

Story:

     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.

Gameplay:

     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".

Sound:

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:

Graphics:

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):

KOF XIII pre-order bonus!

By: blazemanx Jul 29, 2011 | 476 Views | 16 Comments

take a look a what you get for pre ordering KOF XIII.

As far as i know this preorder is going on with Gamestop us/ca and Amazon us/ca. This is a pretty sweet deal seeing as the game is already 10 bucks cheaper than the standard new game price. KOF has always had good music and a 4 disc set spanning their 15 year history is amazing for KOF fans. I don't know if this is enough to make you go pre order but it is for me i love soundtracks that comes with games and it doesn't get much better than this. Also im going to leave you with the newest trailer to hype you up more i know im hype. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.

KOF XIII Max Cancel Combo

By: blazemanx Jul 14, 2011 | 604 Views | 5 Comments

A video showing off the max cancel system of KOF XIII

The max cancel system from what i can tell is similar to the MVC3 DHC. Although insted of canceling into a partners super you cancel into a more powerful super of your own. With all the SFXT and SSF4AE and MVC3 talk KOF XIII is deep under the radar. This video is a game changer and by that i mean it can sway those who are on the fence about buying it. Take a look for yourself and see why KOF XIII has the goods. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.

KOF XIII character combo tutorials

By: blazemanx Jun 30, 2011 | 490 Views | 5 Comments

KOF XIII character specific combo videos.

I came across these awesome character specific combo videos for KOF XIII. KOF will never be as popular as street fighter and that is understandable but i really hope more people get into it. It is one of my favorite franchises and i think it would be great if KOF had a following similar to street fighter. I intend to get this when it drops this holiday season and i hope many people will pick it up so KOF can gain more exposure. Here are some awesome vids for fans and non fans to get you hype.
