A more in depth look at KOF XIII.
King of Fighters XIII improves upon the KOF XII engine, using the Taito Type X2 arcade board like it's predecessor. There are nine returning KOF veterans in this installment, including: King, Mai, Yuri, Takuma, Vice, Maxima, Hwa Jai, Kula, K' and a console exclusive character, Billy Kane! This makes for a total of 32 characters so far, and they will be grouped into teams (unlike the prequel). There will also be a much greater selection of character colors (10 per character) along with some ultra cool sprite edits & "head swaps" for certain characters. At least 8 new hand-drawn stages will appear in the console version, and returning stages have been given visual updates as well.
Special moves now have "normal" and "EX" versions. The EX specials cost a small amount of the power gauge and can add extra hits, boost attack speed, and/or add an extra frame of invincibility! A new gameplay feature is the "Triple Cancel," which allows players to unlimitedly cancel their character's moves. The Triple Cancel is dependent on the "Hyper Drive Gauge," a three-tier gauge which gradually drains as the fighters cancel their moves. When a fighter is in Hyper Drive Mode and has three power stocks, they can perform a powerful technique known as a "Neo Max Desperation Move". Players can also link a Neo Max technique into a combo, which is dubbed "Max Cancel". The "zoom" effect that was used in King of Fighters XII on counter moves has been removed and the gameplay speed has also been improved greatly.
The Story Mode features a scoring system. When fighting against a computer opponent, players are challenged to complete a random objective during stages, or Target Actions. Completing these tasks can award bonus points at the scoring screen. Meeting certain conditions can also reward players the next round by filling up their power gauge or Hyper Drive Gauge. Objectives include goals such as completing a certain amount of hits within one combo, successfully hitting the opponent with a desperation technique (including EX and Neo Max desperation moves or specials), or being asked to perform a certain attack within 10 seconds. Pre-fight dialogue is also featured in game's 1-player mode.
There will also be a "mission mode" but there are no details on it yet. I hope it is similar to the MVC3 mission mode or the SSF4 trials, challenging and fun. As far as we know billy kane is the only console exclusive character but i really hope more is added. Oswald from KOF XI would kick tons of ass in this game i really hope he is added. KOF XIII is looking to hang with the big boys in the figthing game world and i think it has all the tools to do so. With improved online features and a improved network code from the previous game KOF XIII should really appeal to fighting game fans. This game drops october 25th for the ps3 and 360 will you take on the king? I know i will and i now i leave you with a look at the current roster and the latest trailer. Let us know what you think and dont be a jimmy.
The purple ninja has arrived!!!
Rain looks really solid i love the whole weather theme going on. He never stood out to me in the other mortal kombat games but he looks like a real threat in this one. I like his x-ray move and his fatality. He will be available for download july 19th will you make it rain? Let us know and dont be a jimmy.

a new warrior has entered the ring, but who?
A new trailer was posted for a new challenger for SFXT i love the mysteriousness of this teaser. At the very beginning i thought it was sean from street fighter 3 which would be super awesome. Then as it went on i shifted my guess toward eddie gordo from tekken who is also a good character. Who knows it could be someone else. What do you guys think? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.
KOF is headed to the iphone!
Today, SNK Playmore revealed The King of Fighters-i for the iPhone. The game has at least 14 characters from KOF XIII, including console exclusive, Billy Kane. Other features include Bluetooth for local wireless play, trading card mode, several iPhone exclusive stages, 3 on 3 team battle, 1 on 1 single battle, endless survival mode, and training mode.
Now i don't own a iphone and never even seen one in person so i don't know what its capable of. That being said im very impressed that it can put out the slick kof 13 style graphics and can handle plenty of modes and stuff like that. If i had a iphone this would be a must buy seeing as how i love kof. Any iphone owners out there? What do you guys think? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.
a look at the history of a true american.
Guile is the ultimate american character. He has big muscles, crazy hair, is in the air force, loves his country and kicks a whole lot of ass. He may be the only character to have lasted over 20 years and only have two special moves lol. With his iconic sonic boom and flash kick he has secured his place in history and here is some background info on the true american hero GUILE!
Guile made his first appearance in Street Fighter 2 (1991) as one of the eight selectable characters featured in the first release of the game. A Major in the united states air force, he leaves his country and family to enter the World Warrior tournament to avenge the death of his friend charlie, who was killed by m.bison, the tournament's sponsor, sometime before the events of the game. In his ending, he defeats Bison, but is dissuaded from killing him by his wife Jane and their daughter Amy. Guile spares Bison and returns home to be a family man.
Guile's war buddy Charlie would appear in the later prequel series street fighter alpha, although Guile himself did not appear in this sub-series until the console versions of street fighter alpha 3 (1998). Originally Guile was a hidden character in the initial PlayStation version of the game, though subsequent versions made him part of the initial roster. In his storyline in the game, Guile is an Air Force lieutenant ordered to track down Charlie, who has gone missing. Guile eventually fights Charlie, as well as Bison as his final opponent. In his ending, Guile infiltrates Bison's base with Charlie and sets explosives on the Psycho Drive, only for them to be caught in the act by Bison. Charlie holds off Bison while Guile escapes and the base explodes with Charlie still in it, resulting in his death.
Guile also appears as a playable character in Street Fighter EX (1997) and its two sequels, Street Fighter EX 2(1998) and Street Fighter EX3 (2000). The storyline of the EX series takes place at the same time as Street Fighter II. In addition to tracking down Shadaloo to avenge Charlie, Guile is also hunted by a mercenary named Doctrine Dark (another playable character in this sub-series), who is actually a former subordinate named Holger. His relationship with Ken as brothers-in-law (with their respective wives being sisters) is mentioned for the first time in the games in Ken's ending in the Japanese version of the original EX2.
Guile is one of the returning characters who appears in Street Fighter IV. He seeks authorization to conduct a rescue mission for his missing comrade Charlie, but his request is denied by his superiors. During the tournament, Guile faces the amnesiac Abel, who claims that he has seen Guile's moves elsewhere. Guile becomes convinced that Abel means Charlie
Guile is, of course, the original "American Army guy" of fighting games. He's also the first to sport that unique head of hair, which adds to his originality. Guile is certainly one of the most memorable and iconic fighting game characters of all time. Even the button commands of his attacks have been a big inspiration in many fighting games (especially 2D), influencing the likes of Robert, Ash and of course Remy, to name just a few. And just for the record, Guile is in no way related to Jean Claude Van-Damme. lol.
My favorite iteration of Guile would have to be his CVS2 appearance.......capcom still used his alpha 3 sprite but he still blended well with everyone else. The main reason i like his CVS2 appearance so much was because of his voice it was his most awesome voice work to date in my opinion. If you have not played or seen CVS2 look it up its awesome. Guile has been a capcom favorite for many many years and he will always be one of my all time gaming favorites. What do you guys think of guile? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

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.
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 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"
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 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.
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.

3rd Strike Online Edition Achievements Leaked come check them out!
This leaked image appears to show the various challenges for unlocking achievements/trophies in Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition. No details or descriptions appear next to the achievements however, so for the moment, good luck guessing what they are.
Now that these have been leaked i feel that the release is getting closer and closer. As far as i know capcom has not released a date yet for this game all we know is that it will drop this summer. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
here are my top 5 favorite RPG villains.
As you all know im a RPG fanatic and i have played and beaten many many RPG games. In every RPG game there is a hero but you can't have a hero without a villain. Some villains are dull and don't really seem worth the the hero's time. Then there are those that stand out from the crowd in terms of evilness, look and personality. Trust me i have a big list of awesome villains that i like but i decided to only put down 5. It was hard to pick these 5 out of the bunch but i managed to do it. So without further delay here are my top 5 favorite RPG villains.
Yeager is a villain from tales of vesperia and a pretty cool one to be honest. What really caught my attention with yeager was his german accent. He would add ya at the end of his sentences as if he was asking a question. You know what i mean just imagine it lol. In addition to his cool voice he was a BADASS fighter he was one of the hardest bosses in the game. Tales of vesperia has these secret missions where you complete a goal during boss fights and his secret mission was BY FAR the hardest. Another thing that adds to yeagers appeal is that further in the game after you have defeated him for good you learn more about him. You learn that he was not as evil as you thought he was, he had a little good in him too. I really would love to see yeager in another tales game but i guess that won't happen since he is killed in the game. I think there should be more villains with german accents it just adds a extra cool factor.
Dist the reaper
Dist is from tales of the abyss and is one of the six god generals. Dist is by far the most hilarious villain i have ever seen but in a good way. He is indeed evil but totally comical at the same time weather its intentional or not i have no idea. For starters he has one of if not the best evil psycho laughs ever. He calls others savages and thinks of him self as the most beautiful person alive. He even talks about how his name is beautiful, talk about conceited. He never actually fights he uses machines to do his dirty work and he is a mechanical genius but he just can't fight. He is old friends with one of the main party members and the dialog between the two is comedy gold. When you foil his plans he tells you how he will write it down in his revenge journal. I think there should be more villains like him he adds a frown as well as a smile to your face.
Lezard is from valkyrie profile 1 and 2 he is a genius mage who seeks power beyond that of human kind. Although he was in both games the valkyrie profile 2 version of him is why i like him so much. He was actually a team mate for most of the game until his true motives was revealed and he ended being the final boss of the game. He outsmarts the party and other villains to become a god and create his own dimension so its safe to say that he is a total badass. He is voiced by the same voice actor who voices dist the reaper but trust me he sounds nothing like him. He has a badass deep voice and when he does magic and cast spells he sounds truly epic. There aren't many villains that can out smart gods and become a god him self, lezard truly is a villain to be reckoned with.
Luca is from suikoden 2 and trust me he is one sick bastard. He is indeed one of the most evil villains you will ever come across in any game. While he was destroying a town he made a woman get on her hands and knees and bark like a dog if she wanted to live. She did what he said then with an evil grin he struck her down with his sword and laughed as if was nothing. He had no regard for human life he was truly a monster. Another thing that adds to him being a great villain is the actually battle with him in the game. It took THREE DIFFERENT TEAMS of SIX to slow him down but even then he was not finished. After you use 18 different characters to beat him he is hit by a barrage of arrows but with arrows sticking out of his body he was STILL not finished. You then had to face him one on one in a duel and that was no walk in the park. It took all that to defeat this man he was truly a hardcore villain and there should be more like him to really give the player a reason to hate one of the antagonist.
Duke is the main villain from tales of vesperia. Duke was an important figure in the great war in which humans and the Entelexeia (mystical creatures) fought. He fought alongside the Entelexeia Elucifer so that humans and the Entelexeia could live in peace. Although they were victorious, some humans no longer trusted the Entelexeia and executed Elucifer. After this betrayal, Duke lost all faith in humanity and cut all ties with them becoming somewhat of a recluse. He only appeared when he felt it was necessary for the protection of the world and the Entelexeia. Duke is one of those complex villains where he has good intentions but his method to achieve his goal is too extreme. He intended to trade all human life on earth in order to save it. He cared more about the earth it self than those who inhabit it. He survives the final battle and helps the heros save the earth their way. He was a guy you wanted to hate but couldn't i like complex villains like that.
There are many more villains that i have come to like and im sure some of you have too. So let us know some of your favorite villains and don't be a jimmy.
a little story about how i was brought up in a video game heavy family.
April 22 1989 edward wayne lewis was born (me) and from the minute i was born i was surrounded by games and gamers. My mom and all my aunts and cousins were hardcore gamers. My earliest memories of games was when i was 2 years old. I remember playing super smash tv and street fighter 2 with my mom......yup thats right my mom was a street fighter (badass). One of my older cousin always tells stories of how she could not believe how young i was playing street fighter with knowledge of how to do the moves. She would explain how she got beat by a small child it always cracks us up.
I have other memories of when i was about 4 or 5 i remember playing super ninja boys in my moms room. Man that game was so fun i would play it with my cousin all the time. I hated the random encounter rate it seemed like you would fight every 4 seconds in the world map.
Fast forward to the N64 era, it was because of my aunt that i even knew what a N64 was. She brought me and my cousins over her house for a few hours and as soon as i walked in the front door there it was. Big screen tv with mario kart 64 playing on it i was really excited because i had no idea what the system was. Back then i didn't have inside info about up coming games and stuff like that. It was also because of my brother that i came in contact with the original smash bros on the 64. I knew of it but that was about it i remember when he first got it i had to get my hands on pikachu i was BIG pokemon fan. One of the most funniest things about it was that we set the time on infinite and the match would never end so we never had a winner and we didn't understand how we know who's winning. My cousin saved the day by trying to put a time limit on the match then we finally understood the game lol. We all would play together me, mom, brother and cousins and it use to get hilariously intense with the trash talk (sigh) those were the days.
On to the playstation era and the start of my RPG obsession. Another one of my aunt's was a RPG fanatic and still is it was because of her that i fell in love with RPG's. She let me play one of her RPG's called saga frontier made by squaresoft look it up its amazing. You could pick between 7 heros and they all had unique stories that only vaguely overlapped meaning u get 7 great individual stories in one game. It really stuck with me and i had to play more games like it which is what set me on this RPG craze. Then my cousin changed my life by putting me on to the tales series by advising me to get tales of destiny 2. Of course i could have caught on one day but by putting me on it at age 12 i was able to grow up with the series which in my opinion is much more satisfying.
My mom was the one who introduced me to the dreamcast. One day i came home from spending the weekend over my aunt's house and i went downstairs and there it was. This little white box i had never seen before my mom was playing it and to my amazement she was playing marvel vs capcom. I had only seen it in the arcade a few times before and once again my mom playing fighting games (badass). So she was the one who help bring me those elusive arcade fighting games that was only on dreamcast at the time.
By the time the PS2 era rolled around they had already molded me into the gamer i am today. Now i am helping create memories for my younger brothers and sisters and cousins. My mom is still a gamer but she has moved on to MMO's but im a console guy all the way. Are you the primary gamer in your family or did you grow up around other older games? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.
here is a list and some background info on the top 5 characters i want added to MVC3.
Recently seth killian was interviewed about many topics and one of them was MVC3. He implied that they have not abandoned the game and are indeed working on something. Most are 99.9% sure more characters are on the way its just a matter of time. Here are my top 5 characters i want added.
Strider Hiryu is a ninja-style warrior who must defeat a legendary being known as Grandmaster Meio. Meio has observed Earth from his dwelling in a far off galaxy, and has created a space station (known as "The Third Moon"), between Earth and its original moon in order to rule earth and continue observation... The year is 2048.
Armed with a Cypher (a razor-sharp blade, wielded similarly to a tonfa which generates metal-cutting plasma) called Falchion, Hiryu must travel around the globe (including the Soviet Union and the Amazon Rainforest) to find and destroy the evil being. His original debut was in the original Capcom 2D side-scrolling game, Strider.
Strider was one of my mains in MVC2 i loved his speed and combo appeal. In a game like MVC3 he would be more of a combo machine than dante and i would expect to see him used by most pro players.
Abandoned at birth due to his burning red eyes, the child who would one day become Remy LeBeau was kidnapped from his hospital ward by members of the New Orleans Thieves' Guild who referred to the child as "le diable blanc" - the white devil. They believed he was the child that had been prophesied to unite the warring Guilds. Soon after, Remy was placed in the care of a gang of street thieves who raised the child and taught him the ways of thievery.
Gambit is one slick badass he was always one of my favorite x-men. He is really popular in the previous VS games and would fit right in with the current MVC3 cast. I know a lot of people would love to see how awesome royal flush would look in the MVC3 engine. I could see him as a mix between rush down and zoning and used a lot.
Mai-Ling is a skilled martial artist from Gora. Recently she left her hometown and participated in a martial arts tournament in which she won first place. Overjoyed she returned home to tell her family, but her joy turned to horror when she found her home ablaze. As she stood in shock the harpy, Lavia, descended from the sky and took credit for the destruction. So begins her journey to discover what evil has befallen the world.
Mia-Ling is from the VERY little known capcom fighting game red earth. She is a pure melee fighter and i think she would be a fantastic addition to MVC3. She would fill a few voids like more female characters and the badass kung fu style character. I could see her being a pure rushdown character with lots of over heads and heavy hitting combos and hypers.
Scott Summers, better known as Cyclops, discovered his mutant ability to direct and control his powerful optic blast, a powerful energy beam emitting from his eyes, during his difficult childhood. Having lost his parents at an early age and raised in an orphanage, he was eventually found by Charles Xavier and became the first member of the original X-men. Cyclops is also the father of Cable and husband of Jean Grey.
Cyclops is my favorite x-man and he NEEDS to be in this game. It just doesn't feel right without him in my opinion he was part of the backbone of MVC2 but thats just me. I could see him being just like in MVC2 but with a new level 3 hyper.
Ominous clouds of ill-omen obscure the castle. Pale moonlight shrines forth into Lord Maximov's inner chamber... he is awake! "The day of battle is soon to come..." muses the Romanian noble, "after a century of waiting, there are finally foes worth fighting!" With an evil grin, Demitri rises to his feet. After a hundred years of slumber. Demitri seeks to make "Prince of Darkness" the most feared name in the netherworld once again.
Morrigan, who is a daughter of Aensland, succeeded to the position of ruler of the Makai (the world of devils), after the timely death of Berial. The night before the final battle to decide who will be the true ruler of the Makai, Demitri's eternal castle has once again been drawn to the evil dimension by mysterious supernatural powers. "Is this an act of Doma?" "I know not of what he is up to, but no chance exists for a loser of his sort." Regretfully putting aside the battle with Morrigan for the time being, Demitri slowly rises from his enchanted coffin to terminate the loser who poses as a ruler. "I will make him fully aware of his place... I am the sole entity that can rule the Makai
Demitri is my #1 overall pick to be in MVC3. He is my favorite darkstalker character but he never gets any love. Capcom puts him in japanese crossover games and thats all well and good for japanese fans BUT NOT FOR ME. Its always morrigan that is the main character to rep darkstalkers in high profile crossover games. I know i can't be the only one who wants him in. I think an appearance in MVC3 could be his most badass appearance to date. He would most likely be balance between zoning and mix up options. I hear one of the reasons he was not included was because his midnight bliss super would be a pain to animate. Well i say bullcrap they could just make one new 3D model for midnight bliss and use it for all characters instead of creating 3D models for nearly 40 characters.
Those are my top 5 hopefully at lease one of these characters make it. I would like to know who you guys would like to see added. Let us know and don't be a jimmy.
