Talk about an
unexpected Christmas present! The package arrived today and I
was quite pleased. Jet really topped anything I could have
expected out of a Strider request. The Strider drawing
turned out incredibly awesome! What's even better is that I got
two different badass versions of it. =P I loved the pose
and the robot hawk and panther was an extremely nice touch!
I'm honored to be considered part of the "TFG
Family." The bonus minimates were well picked too. That Ken
will go nicely with Ryu. =P Thanks for everything. The bonus
gift, the second version of the drawing, allowing me to be
considered TFG Family, and the opportunity to provide banners
for the site! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to both of you

I'm so glad the package arrived before Christmas... Awesome! Yeah, once
Jet sends me his digital copy of the Strider artwork, I’ll be putting it
up on his art page. It’s definitely one of his best works of 2013. And
yeah, I figured Ken would keep Ryu company... heh heh. Merry Christmas,
Happy New Year, and keep in touch as always. ;)
Sacred Fist. . .
Hello there Frank,
My name is Yassin and I'm
a huge fan of fighting games and thus your site I check it on a
daily basis. I have to make my apologies though cause I'm dutch
and I think my english is not very good, I have a question for you
though. When I was seven years old I played a game called kensei
sacred fist and thought it was a great game. Ten years later I had
a psp and downloaded it (it's a ps1 game btw) and a wave of
nostalgia was coming over me so here's my question is why havent
you reviewed it? It's my childhood!! And I know I'm not the only
one who thinks about it that way.
Keep up the superb work
and greets from Holland!!
Glad to hear you're a daily visitor. Your English is good enough for me to
understand. ;) I have heard of Kensei: Sacred Fist, but I never got
around to playing it back in the PS1 days. That one just slipped through
the cracks, in my case. You sparked my curiosity, so I did some research
(on Youtube) and wow... that game looks A LOT like Tekken. XD
That alone is reason enough to add the game to TFG’s Games library...
I’ll highly consider doing that in the future. Thanks for the mail!
Yassin replies: Thanks
for your reply and you're right indeed it looks a lot like Tekken, but
gameplay wise it's exactly like DOA! And another thing: I'm glad you have
REAL fighting games on your site instead of that Super Smash Brothers,
Naruto or "that kind of shit". And if I may ask you another
question: which of the characters of the Street Fighter EX games do you want
to see back in a next street fighter game? I would like to see Blair back
but I don't think that's going to happen because she only appeared in one
game... Keep up the good work and I hope to hear from you soon! Greetings
And I'm glad that you appreciate the type of fighting games that TFG
covers. To answer your question, I'd love to see the return of Skullomania,
C. Jack, Allen and D. Dark. ;)
Fighter Alpha: Ryu VS Sagat (Live Action). . .
Hey, I'm a longtime fan of your page and your Gallery is my
"Go-To" spot for any and everything fighting! I've just
finished a SF fan film and I'd like to share it with you:
Feel free to share and embed on your site if you feel so inclined.
BRAVO. I practically watched the entire thing with a smile on my face.
Great actors and good pacing. I really enjoyed the authentic "real
life" martial arts vibe about it, too. Nice touch with the white headband
on Ryu as well... I knew it was the SFA timeline immediately when I
saw that (I didn't read the title of the video yet, lol). Thanks a
lot for the heads up! Glad you enjoy the site.
Artistic Side of Video Games, Tekken VS KOF Comic. . .
Hello Mr. Yagami-sama. (Is it okay
if I can call you that??)
I never really was a die-hard fighting game fan, since I was born
in the playstation generation, until now. I now begin to
understand the artistic side of video games through this website,
and it really grows on me in every way. I even try to draw
fighting game characters as a passion! Thanks for making me a
fighting game fan, Mr Yagami! Love your work!
Btw, I'm more on the 3d side of things, so sorry if I don't
approve 2d fighting games as much. (Don't worry, I still love
street fighter, king of fighters, etc.)
I'm curious about one thing, though: what makes a perfect fighting
game character?? I'm asking this because none of my friends I know
but me like Jin Kazama, or Kazuya Mishima for that matter, and yet
they received a perfect score. Kasumi, on the other hand, who some
of my friends like, only received 3 out of 5 overall.
Speaking of Jin, I found this while skimming over a King of
Fighters comic on my iPhone. (Yes, it's Chinese, and I can't read
Chinese. I'd gladly appreciate it if someone can translate this
for me) :)
Could it be??!!! :0 What do you think of a Tekken/King of Fighters
crossover, or even Namco vs SNK?? Capcom vs SNK and Street Fighter
x Tekken (and Namco x Capcom) had already happened, so surely why
not?? Just a thought. Sorry if it's lengthy, but anyways keep the
soul burning and let the fighting spirit never die!! :)

Yagami-sama. I like it.
Hey, I miss those Playstation 1 days... there were so many amazing games
from that era. Not to mention, games that made you "work" for
your rewards and some that made you "use your imagination" a
little bit (unlike most of today's games). I sense I'll go off on a rant
if I continue, so let's get back to the subject matter here.
Hey, it's awesome to know TFG inspired the fighting game fan (and the
artist) within you. That's exactly what fighting games themselves did to
me in the late 80's... (there I go reminiscing again).
Wow, I'm aging myself here.
Alright. So what makes a perfect fighting game character? GREAT question.
Seriously. I'll give you 3 things that can make a badass fighting game
1. Personality. Nuff said.
2. An outfit that makes sense... and one that compliments his/her
3. A fighting style with depth, either based on an authentic martial
art... or imaginative in a way that "makes a statement".
Now onto these Chinese Tekken VS King of Fighters comics... Very
interesting. I'm familiar with the Hong Kong art style and I know there
are a ton of KOF comics in this style, but I've never seen Tekken thrown
in. That text seems too small to translate, but maybe try looking around
for higher quality versions (I'll try too). And personally, I've always
thought Tekken & KOF universes would merge perfectly. Each series has
very "stylish" characters... they compliment each other (I know
they do on my toy shelves).
Thanks for the fun-to-read email. Stay in touch!
P.S. I hope to visit Australia someday.
on How To Get Better at Fighting Games. . .
Heyy there guys! I
actually just found your site the other day and was blown away
by the content. Had some "mainstream" videos and
intimate videos from other various people in the community too
and I really liked that.
So with that, I
decided I'd email you about a new video I made helping the
fighting game community with how to get better at fighting
games in 10 simple, but detailed steps. I'd really love if you
could check it out yourself and include it on the main page!
And it's not just for myself, but moreso for the fighting game
community itself. Often there are threads and fragmented tips
on how to get better, but no one seems to ever break it down
in its entirety; so instead I set out to do so.
so much for reading this and here's the link of the video.
Also, let me know what you think!
Strikes: 10 Detailed Tips How To Get Better at Fighting Games!
Just found TFG huh? Cool, thanks for the compliments on the site. :) Also
thanks for the heads up on your video... I'll see what I can do about
maybe posting it soon. It's cool you're trying to help out new
players! Any plans for making one for 3D fighting games? Anyhow, I
subscribed to ya. Keep in touch. :)
Nuu replies: Heyy! Thanks for the response man, means a lot :) and
I definitely plan on making more fighting game content. I haven't gotten a
chance to play tekken or soul caliber in a whole so I'm not too sure when
the 3D guide would come out, but in working on everything of course.
