- Apr 2011 Feedback
in Japan. . .
First, I feel awful about this cataclysm in Japan. I remember
browsing in YouTube when this message pops up about the
disastrous quake in Japan.. I thought it won't be something
really bad, since they are seismic zone.. but this was
overwhelming, the bad thing is that this city is economically
important city for Japan, without doubt this and the damages
will slow them a little, but since they are proud and high
spirited people, it won't take long for them to be back in
good shape :) Btw not even a single store was robbed and no
vandalism on the streets.. talk about discipline.. We must
learn from them...
But enough sad topics!
To be honest with you right now I feel more urge to play
TTT2!!! I like Harada's style ---> everything in the pack
nice and cozy, and you don't pay for nothing more. Because man
I feel that way: you pay for the game, the license, and the
right to own and play the thing. Why the hell should I pay for
characters? You paid for the right to own the game, that
includes everything connected and part of her...It's stupid if
you ask me, and easy way to milk money (shame on you
CAPCOM..wtf is wrong with you!). I hope Harada-san won't
"infest" Tekken the same way, but knowing his style
I'm sure, there won't be such things...
Sorry for the text wall. I'm sending some avatars of Kain
(Garou <3 ) which I hope you will find useful :)
'Till next time!

Frank replies: Japan
is a role model country... especially in the wake of such a huge disaster.
People around the world should take many notes from Japan. I was
deeply saddened when I heard about the disaster; I'm still upset about it
actually. My uncle used to live in one of the towns that got wiped out by
the tsunami, but he moved a year ago to a town near Tokyo. If he hadn't
moved last year, he would've been in the disaster zone. I really feel for
the people of Japan... they can use all of the help they can get. The Red
Cross link on the TFG News page isn't going anywhere for quite some
time... hopefully TFG's visitors will do their part. The people of Japan
are indeed a strong, proud people and I know they will make it through.
*sigh* Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is going to own my soul when it comes out!
lol. Namco always delivers when they release a new fighting game...
sometimes they don't fill it up with tons of extras, but they make
a quality game that LASTS, a game worth putting 100's of hours into. I
don't mind paying for DLC on fighting games... it's nice to see companies
supporting the game and the fans, but it can get costly over time. I
wouldn't have minded some Tekken 6 DLC actually... since I still
play it pretty much daily.
P.S. Kain avatars..... Random! They look cool btw.
Kombat 9 Arcade Cabinet . . .
Frank replies: Hey
Doc. Those are beautiful cabinets, wow! And is that a Tekken 6 cabinet
I see as well?
I'd like to see some screens of that one as well! Hehe..
I'm glad the Galloping Ghost Arcade
will be hosting some of the finest fighting games of 2011. Seems like you
guys are keeping it innovative over there... keep up the great work with
the arcade, and
if I'm ever in Chicago I'll be stopping by for sure. Take care! :)
True Fan Site . . .
Dear F. Yagami!
Hats off to you and all of your hard work and dedication to The Fighters
Generation website, freaking awesome homepage! Now
that's what I call a true fan site, hands down the best :) Keep
up the awesome bro and much success with the site, here's some of my
artwork I do from my studio Backwards Press Design.
Peace, Love & Art!

man! And thanks for sharing the artwork... I do like Symbiote Wolverine!
Fighting Game Characters in Mod Nation Form IV!
After months of anticipation, fastg35
strikes one more time in TFG to show his famous Modnation mods. It's
been awhile but the wait was well worth it. I got mods from Street
Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, Tekken, Dead or Alive, Blazblue, and
Rival Schools. The characters are so diverse this time around and
much more detailed. This batch is the best yet.
With help with my good friends, StridentGear (Dante, Kasumi, Ayane),
Chocobot008 (Strider Hiryu), and Ginsu_Loki02 (Zaki), They helped
made this batch stand out from the crowd. Overall, these mods are just a great offering. I hope this isn't the end, but I want everyone
to know that I have interest on one more post as there are still more
characters that haven't received the Modnation treatment. Mr.
FYagami, if you have any requests, request as much as you like and I'll
make sure to help make it into a reality. Also, feel free to name some
of your favorites! Enjoy!
Frank replies: Impressive
as ever. This is probably your best set yet... thanks so much for sharing!
Congrats to you and your friends for creating these badass customs!
Missing a Few Games.
checking your website. fighersgeneration.com, nice site, good work :)
You don't have listed: Kengo: Master of Bushido, Wu-Tang: Shaolin
Style, Def Jam: Fight for NY
You do have listed rpg fighters and card games (pokemon type of thing).
Not sure what you are going for with the site but Kensei is a great
game and Kengo is a sword fight game just like Bushido Blade (1-2)
actually is a sort of sequal to it. There is also an xbox version of
Kengo, I forgot what it is called, I have a video in my favorites.
Anyway, Keep up the good work. Maybe divide them into console or years
in addition to alphabetical.
-Curtis (Panama City, FL)
Frank replies: Thanks.
I've been asked this question a few times over the years and it's a good
question. The games you listed don't qualify to be featured on the site, and I'll tell you
1. Kengo was indeed the spiritual successor to the Bushido
Blade series, but I'd classify it as a "simulation," rather
than an arcade fighting game. Also, the characters are incredibly
generic... which disqualifies it. I might've made an exception if Kengo
was extraordinary, but it surely wasn't.
2. Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style & Def Jam: Fight for NY are
more like wrestling games than they are fighters. They also feature real life
celebrities/rappers, which have no place on the site. Could you really
picture a Snoop Dog or a Fat Joe character profile on the website? lol.
3. Namco X Capcom and Card Fighters Clash obviously aren't
fighting games but they do feature a plethora of fighting game
references, artwork and characters... that's why they
make appearances on the site.
to make SSF4: 3D Edition run at 60 FPS!
You may want to update the info on your page:
Go to options and shut off the 3d option in the
game's menu, sliding down the little nob in the 3DS won't work.

Frank replies: Whoooaahohooo!
It's like magic!!!
Firstly, thanks for passing on the tip! It would've been
nice if Capcom included such information in the options menu.
lol. Well I'll be damned... SSF4:
3D Edition looks mighty fine at 60 FPS! In fact, I've raised the
score by .4 points because of this fact alone. I'm guessing we can expect
similar frame rate options in future 3DS releases... I'll be sure not to
let them sneak by me in future titles that I review. Thanks again man, you
made my day!
and Contrast. . .
just wondering if you ever considered putting a section on TFG
comparing and contrasting some of the similar games currently
available? My friend and I constantly debate some games such as Dead
or Alive 4 vs Tekken 6. Granted I feel Tekken destroys most 3d
fighting games out, my friend just doesn't understand the depth that a
game like Tekken has over a game like DOA. I figured someone like you
or anyone who helps on your site would be more knowledgeable about
these topics and could formulate in words from a pure gaming
experience stand point about which games are superior! Even though I
can clearly explain this to my friend it usually becomes a heated
debate that doesn't solve much since there's no middle ground and
written down pros and cons. I know that technically a person could
just look at your reviews on 2 opposing games but that doesn't really
get to specifics since its just an overview of the title. Plus you
have great skills and can articulate more on what these games have to
offer! See you on PSN -Darkspartan86
-Antoin Cato (Bronx, New York)
Frank replies: That's
an interesting idea... I've actually considered writing a blog or two
about Tekken in particular, because I think the majority of gamers
don't understand how deep of a game Tekken truly is, notably the
later installments (Tekken 5 & 6). I think part of the reason is
because Namco usually doesn't include any kind of Tutorial Mode in their Tekken
games (besides Tekken: DR on PSP). Good news is... Tekken Tag 2
is supposed to have a Tutorial Mode (and I hope they make it worthwhile),
so that might help. Anyhow, I'll take your idea into consideration.
Breath of Fresh Air. . .
Frank; My name is Manuel and I'm mexican, first of let me tell you
that i have encountered a single person who understands the fighting
genre as well as you do, your site, your reviews, your sense of humor,
everything was just a breathe of fresh air, because, I've been a HUGE
and I mean a H-U-G-E fighting game fanatic since I was 5 years old.
Well, the thing is, I can only play the likes of tekken or street
fighter online since all of my friends won't touch a game if it doesn't
have huge ass shotguns or hollywood-like explosions, and I pretty much
suck compared to all of those guys and let me tell you, judging by the
messages I recieve some of them could use some manners, I want to turn
the table and shut their mouths, do you have some advices?. My
favourite tekken character is steve, and My all time favourite is
AKUMA. Anyway, thanks for your awesome website and for providing me
with news and tips on your videos.
-Jose Manuel Patino Garcia (Mexico)
Frank replies: Thanks
for the big compliment. I'm glad you find TFG to be a "breathe of
fresh air" outside of the mainstream gaming scene... it can get kind
of claustrophobic out there if I do say so myself. I never could
understand why "shoot everything that moves" games are so
popular... maybe because it takes a special kind of person to fully
appreciate fighting games, and FPS's are on the "simple" side of
Anyhow, I believe you're referring to people online that talk trash? Many
gamers do need to learn manners, but my advice is to simply block them, or
give short, "witty" replies if you really have to... that always
seems to piss them off.
Practice up, and you'll definitely beat them next time. Thanks for the
Your Reviews. . .
I'm a long time visitor of your site from Turkey (i guess for ten
years) I like
to read your reviews, best fighting game reviews you read on web, even
think you underrated some kof games :P, i just have one complain
reviews that is i have to scroll right read your reviews even in
resolution. Can you make the pages readable without scrolling?
Thank you for reading. I look forward to read your new reviews.
-Omer Unal (Turkey)
Wow, a TFG fan all
the way in Hakan's country? Awesome!
I'm glad you've enjoyed my reviews. I realize on some computers you'll
have to scroll right, but unfortunately I can't change the size. When I
created the new design for TFG game profiles I knew it was going to be an
issue for some people, but keep in mind most widescreen monitors will be
able to display the full game profile. If your screen size is limited,
opening the game profile in a separate window should help a bit. Thanks for writing in! :)
