Yeah I love
your site, It's so helpful and just fun to go visit all the time and
the pictures and artwork are just great. Yeah I just wanted to leave
you a message saying keep up the good work and everyone who is in the
group on making this site run. oh and I made this video for the hype
of Tatsunoko vs Capcom, in ways my own little ad's for the game in
hopes that people would get into the game (I have the japan game...It
was so worth getting lol) Anways I hope this gets a laugh from you
Capcom FTW... jerk!
(who said that?) Funny vid. Thanks for the mail. ^_^
Fighters. . .
Hey man, just gotta give you
props on an awesome site. I found TFG about four years ago (give or
take) and it's held a permanent spot in my favorite sites menu ever
since. Thanks for continuing to run one of the few video game
fansites that hasn't turned to crap or transformed into yet another
A quick question for
offers info on such a mind-blowingly huge selection of fighting
games, why the lack of coverage for doujin fighters? I'm kind of
surprised you haven't started pages for titles like Big Bang Beat or
Million Knights Vermilion. And then of course there's Melty Blood,
which has actually showed up in arcades and on home consoles in
Japan and has a pretty big following in the US as well. I thought
maybe MB was overlooked because it was a Japan-only title, but then
I noticed you have pages for Rumble Fish and some of the KOF games
that never made it across the Pacific, so what gives!?
Keep up the great work with
Frank replies:Hey Dan, thanks for keeping TFG's favicon on your favs. ;) Well, I
get this question quite a lot... and I've decided that I will eventually
add some of the more popular doujin fighters (like Melty Blood) to TFG.
Honestly though, I'm personally not a fan of doujin fighting games... just
never got into any of them. I also excluded doujin fighters
because if I were to add one or two, I'd definitely feel the
pressure from TFG fans to add the rest... and I just didn't want to go
down that road.
However, by getting many emails like yours, I've realized that a few
doujin fighters do deserve a spot on TFG. ;) Anyhow, thanks for the
mail... you might've just been the needle that broke the camel's back.
Fighter 5 R Petition. . .
VFDC has been
working very hard with their petition alongside a very respected VF
webmaster from Japan to get a console release for Virtua Fighter 5-R.
The webmaster, Kamaage, has already made a strong impression on Sega
with a 100 page document contributed from casual and hardcore Virtua
Fighter and fighting game fans in general, to show support for the
game, and ultimately show Sega that people still care about the Virtua
Fighter series, despite the fact that Virtua Fighter 5 is nearing 4
years old now.
To get straight to the point, I would appreciate it if you showed
support for the petition on your website. I know TFG is highly
regarded as one of the best general fighting game fansites in the
community for it's detailed reviews.
Hopefully with enough support from the fighting game community, a
console release can happen. I know you're a Tekken man, but without
Virtua Fighter, Tekken wouldn't of gotten far on it's own. Games need
competition, both players and developers!
Frank replies: You're absolutely
right, fighting games do need competition... and in America, the 3D
fighting game genre has been owned by Namco for quite a while
now. So where you at Sega?!? There are still VF fans in America... and I
know that includes many TFG visitors. Thanks for informing me about
the petition. I'll personally sign it myself, after posting this on the
news page for everyone to see of course. ;)
Daisuke. . .
Hello to all from
I'd first like to say thank you for
coming up with this site i'm a huge fan. But also i'd like to express
my condolences to Gouri Daisuke friends & family. As those characters he play &
brought life to are now all quiet & will be missed.
Frank replies: Well spoken
Jay... all of us at TFG will definitely miss Gouri-sama. Thanks.
Super Street Fighter IV Question
I'll admit, at first I wasn't interested
in SSFIV. I didn't like the idea of making my $60 SFIV game obsolete so soon.
But after I've seen how much new content has been added and that there's even
MORE characters that haven't been announced yet (Ibuki, I hope!), AND after
watching that video you posted showing off some of the epic new ultras, I
think I'm kinda sold on this one now (as long as it's not a full $60).
I've been looking around other sites trying to figure out whether or not I
should sell my copy of SFIV and "upgrade" to SSFIV. I've read that
some people said that owners of SFIV should hang on to their disk because of
some kind of gift that Capcom will give you. I was wondering if you knew
anything about this. Thanks for your help.
personally felt that Street Fighter IV's roster could have been better
(among other things), so I've actually been waiting for Capcom to
make Street Fighter IV obsolete!!! lol. Just my 2 cents. Anyway, yes,
Capcom (Ono) did say that if you hold onto your SF4 disks there will be
some sort of functionality or bonus with SSF4. ;)
Tekken Movie Trailer Thoughts
Just wanted to know what did you think about the Tekken Movie trailer? I mean
what did you like and didn't about it. When I saw it for the first time I was disappointed, but after I saw it a few
more times I kinda started to like more and more.
I think it's too early to say that it will suck or anything because you can't
judge a fighting scene only by one montage moment from the trailer.
I loved that characters look like they look in the game. Bryan is just badass
(if I'm not mistaken he'll probably reach the half-finals alongside Jin).
Although you're favorite character, Steve Fox, doesn't look much how he does
in the game, he is played by a good actor and I think he will do him justice
in this movie.
The only things I didn't like is Raven's costume. Why not give him his black
costume. And why does it look like pajamas? The other thing that bugs me is the Jin and Christie thing. Did the movie
makers say: "Let's take the hottest chick in the game and make her the
Well, what are your thoughts?
Frank replies:I'm definitely disappointed, like any Tekken fan would be... my idea
of a live action Tekken movie has a more serious tone, a cooler/older Jin
Kazama, and has a bit more Electric Wind Godfist. :/ It looks somewhat
"kiddie" so far, which will naturally put off most of the Tekken
fan-base (us old guys). lol. Most of the costumes look decent, and at
least they've got some actors that know a thing or two about martial
agree though, it does look like the makers said "Let's
take the hottest chick in the game and make her the love interest." It's
too obvious. Personally, I'm going to wait to see it before I make
any more judgments, but I don't exactly have high hopes.
May I bow?
Honestly dude, your site is the
best thing I ever found on the net. Been a fighting game addict since I first
played SF in a seedy NJ arcade. Your site is the best and mega cheers for the
collection of figures. I always look for updates on FightersGeneration.
We need a voice like you, RPG's and Katamari are just detours between new
fighting titles, and you get that.
BTW, tried Demon Soul;s yet? Its freakin awesome bro. I also made Gamestop
employees stay an extra hour because i was rocking Blazblue till Bloodedge
Ragna. Have I earned the sensei's respect?
for the kind words... means a lot coming from a fellow addict. ^_^ I
especially like your quote: "RPG's & Katamari are just detours
between new fighting titles"... so true.
And no, I actually haven't tried Demon Souls yet... I've heard good things
about it though. Anyway, thanks a lot and keep on enjoying TFG!
a great 2010. . .
I wrote to you awhile back about SF4's timeline and wanted to thank you for
answering it and putting it on the feedback page. I've never had that happen
before lol! Site's looking great as always and I found your Tekken 6 review a
hell of a lot more informative than those mainstream sites. Now that the
formal stuff's out of the way, I have a couple of questions for you if you
don't mind :P.
1. Have you seen those Street Fighter After Years videos on youtube? A buddy
of mine showed me those and I found them pretty enjoyable.
2. How would you feel if Namco came out with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 using
Tekken 6's engine? I had a lot of fun playing TTT and am still hoping they'll
come out with another one.
3. And finally, here's one I thought might be a bit of a fun one for you: If
you were contacted by a game company to create a Fighters Generation fighting
(obviously) game and you could use absolutely anything and anyone from any
series you wanted (copyright infringement ain't got shit on you :P) what would
you do? Would you make a 2d fighter or a 3d one? If you were limited to only
20 characters available who would you have in the roster? Would you have a
mid-boss fight or an extra end stage boss or both? Who would your boss(es) be?
If you weren't limited to 20 characters who else would you have? Would the
combo system be like Tekken or maybe you would "type in an ass
kicking" ala MK? Would you have some kind of a parrying system like in
SF3, counter system like DOA, or would you just keep it at the simple high/low
blocks? And lastly, who would grace the cover of your game?
Yeesh, question 3 came out longer than I expected lol! I'm sure you get asked
questions like that all the time but hey, maybe you've got new favorite
characters and stuff. I realize putting in Soul Calibur characters would give
some of them an edge in range but let's pay no attention to that shall we? :)
Anyway, that's all I've come up with for now. Keep up the great work on the
site and have a great 2010!
Thanks man. So, about these questions...
1. Yes I have... The entire saga is actually here on TFG (Funnies). LINK!
2. In my opinion,
Namco would have to completely revamp the tag system for the current gen
if they made Tekken Tag 2. Having your partner "disappear and
reappear" into the fight (out of the blue) might have worked in 1999,
but I don't think it would fly 10 years later. I personally prefer Tekken
as a 1-on-1 fighting game, but I did enjoy the hell out of Tag back in the
Generation: The Game huh? Hmmm, I'd have to say either... (drum roll
please)..... Capcom VS SNK VS Namco... or... Marvel VS
Tatsunoko VS Capcom.
It would be a 2D 3-vs-3 fighting game, VS series style. I'm not going to
list my picks for the roster, but It'd be balanced. ;) I'd have a sub-boss
"team" with appropriate boss characters from the 3 companies,
and an oversized, badass end boss of course. The animation would be
SF3: Third Strike quality, so a parrying system would be included.
Parry Ryu's 25-hit Shinku-Hadouken?? LOL. Hmmm... maybe the super moves
wouldn't be over-the-top like in the VS series, but at least on par with Third
Strike. For the cover, I'd have Edayan, Bengus, or Kawano do the
artwork, and all the characters in the game would be on the cover!
P.S. That video made me LMFAO!!! "You like this kinda fightin'
