Those are some pretty well done edited gifs... Shows how easy it could
have been to put those guys in a 2D game or two... Nothin wrong with a
little sprite re-hash. ;) I like SNK-style Heihachi and Kuma the most.
Kyo. . .
The game - it's done! Be sure to read the readme
replies: Oooh shit... What's up Kyo! BUSTEERRRRRR
WOOOOLF! Haha... stupid
Terry from Max Impact... Dude,
your game is sweet, and the cutscenes are freaking hilarious... But it's
so hard. The first time I played, I decided not to fight the millions of Gokus, so I walked Kyo to the end of the stage and he then he didn't want
to turn around... So I quit. LOL! I suck. Anyhow, good shit... Funny as
hell. Can't wait for Max Kyo 2!!! Make it easier please!! Anyway, see you
at TL. We gotta have a Card Fighters battle soon...
I was thinking and something for you and the site that I think is pretty
cool. It is MUGEN I dont know if u had heard of it. But it is a downloadable
2-d fighting game engine where u can download characters from games or
sites and put them in your game. U can all kinds of fighters going at it.
I have Samurai showdown charaecters fighting streetfighter charaecters.
Also if put mugen downloads on your site it would make your site even more
powerful then it is today. If u would like some links consening this email
replies: Yeah, I had a kickass MUGEN back in the day... It was Capcom
VS Marvel VS SNK... Complete with correct stage music!! Hellz yea... I
kinda got bored with it tho, maybe I'll get back into it someday if I have
time to waste. lol.
Dragons. . .
whas good ya'll? well, imm ajust give you the qiuck 1. Im in iraq right
now, in the Marine corps. i just happend to fina ya'lls site, and this
is now 1 of my most favorites. I only have 1 thing to add. Do you remember
this fighting game for N 64 called flying dragons?? it wasnt Too, too,
popular, but it was more well known the jo-jo's bizzare adventure. I was
just thinkin that you should add some of them to the characters list. I
can only remember a few names : kate, suzaku, ryuji.......and thats about
it. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
-Cpl Reed James R. USMC
replies: Flying Dragons? Yeah, I think I rented that once, and play
it for like 5 minutes. It probably sucked so I forgot about it... Maybe
I'll do some research and put it up on the site? Or maybe not...
Anyhow, thanks for the mail... And keep up the good work yourself! Hope
you get to come home soon and play some fighting games. Hit me up when
you do! Peace.
Movies. . .
there is one thing I hate, it's Hollywood making pathetic movies based
off some of the greatest video games ever made. Super Mario Bros., Street
Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, and a few others have been destroyed
complements to hollywood's "directing" and "acting". Tomb Raider gets a
few points from me,( only because Jolie's hot.) but that sucked in my opinion
as well. I never saw Double Dragon, but it probably sucked like the rest.
In Super Mario Brothers, Yoshi
was a raptor, and Bowser was human with a long tongue. In Street Fighter,
Guile had an accent, Blanka was Charlie, Dhalsim was a doctor, and Ryu
and Ken being street hustlers, come on! The emperor of Muay Thai
was nothing more than an arms dealer. Mortal Kombat increased the misery
by making Raiden and Shao Kahn brothers, while Shinnok was their father.
What was worse, he didnt even look like Shinnok, no helmet thing on his
head, or white face with green eyes. Jax had a terrible sense of humor.
I have nothing to say about Resident Evil........Soul Calibur will soon
join the list, and now the greatest 3D fighting game is finally on the
list to be destroyed, Tekken. I can already see Hwoarang acting like a
dork, as well as a few others. I won't hold my breath for it's release,
because like those other movies I discussed, it will suck as well. It's
hard to see one of your favorite characters acting like a idiot on the
big screen, because of some sorry "actor".
I hope you found this message
more entertaining than these movie titles. When will hollywood give up?
replies: You didn't see Double Dragon?
LoL. Don't... It's not even that
funny. Your review of SF the movie is cracking me up. Poor Sagat... why
did they make him an arms dealer? Indeed, they made some horrible movies
based off of fighting games. I also shudder at the thought of a live action
Tekken or Soul Calibur movie. I hope they don't screw it up. Maybe they
should cast me as Maxi though... I've got nunchaku skills! Check it out!
going with my initial just to be safe, man. Anyway, your site is cool and
all but I just can't understand why you don't judge Krauser by his movie
character, instead of the game's version. If you saw the movie you'd know
what I'm talkin' about, Yagami Frank. By the way, when are Neo Geo Coliseum,
and Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection coming out, like never? Incidentally I
heard you gamble for fights, if that's true I'd like to pick up on that
challenge, hunh!? All in all, I'd like to challenge your Steve Fox vs my
Jin Kazama skills, confirmed? We can talk money details if it happens.
Point made, keep chilling man, over and out!
P.S.-Forget about the Krauser
ordeal. Probably did anyway, right?
replies: Hmm... Do I know you? Ahh well, maybe we can have that Steve
VS Jin match someday. Hit me up. Krauser? Ohh, Krauser wasn't bad in the
Fatal Fury movie... I just don't like him I guess. Haha. He kicks my ass
in Card Fighters!
Game Spirit. . .
of all, i would like to congratulate you for a job well done. i'm ian palma
from the philippines, and like you, am also a fighting game enthusiast.
the moment i found out about tfg, i was deeply moved by the idea that there's
a dedicated website that's all about fighting games. i can't help but feel
'complete'. i'm inspired by your commitment in keeping the fighting game
spirit alive. producing a website that's entirely for the glory of fighting
games is inspirational. as a fighting game enthusiast, i'm grateful to
you and your very noble deed, you should be knighted. i hope your unwavering
dedication will never cease.me and the rest of the fighting game enthusiasts
all over the world are by your side. you have our support. thank you and
more power. keep up the great work! keep the fighting game spirit up and
p.s. small suggestion, i hope
you'll include in tfg the titles like capcom's technoromancer, the battle
arena toshinden series, and konami's kensei sacred fist. i know it'll be
added work for you, but hey, it's tfg anyway, the greatest fighting website
on the net. and i have faith in you, you can do great job when it comes
to fighting games.
replies: You felt complete the moment you found TFG?
Damn, man... It's not even complete. But I'm glad the spirit of fighting
reaches you out in the Philippines. I'm glad TFG inspires you, that's what
it's online for! I hope to add more and more titles to the collection,
it just takes time. So come back soon! Shooosh!
artist in training. . .
up!! My name is Kaylo and I wanted to tell you that what you're doing is
Tight. For a long time I've been looking for a website about fighting games
only. Just like you I'm the biggest fighting game fanatic alive since I
was a kid. I also am a sketch artist in training and there's nothing more
inspiring than this. Here is a little artwork that I have made for my future
games... It would be cool if we could share ideas for character design.
replies: I'm glad you found the inspiration you were looking for...
And nice sketches btw! Your anatomy is pretty damn sharp. Good faces too.
Terror O_O. . .
Frankie, how's it going? Glad to see you're slowly getting the site
up and running again, but even more glad to see you're playing Soul Calibur
III. Because everyone that plays fighting games should be playing
it. Hell, I don't even know why I'm not right now.
I am also a martial artists,
I was drawn to martial arts by fighting games. I'm a student of Shaolin
Kung Fu, but I am very interested in other systems, and enjoy sparring
people of different disciplines.
But anyway, I've been visiting
your site for 2-3 years now (your site is where I discovered Guilty Gear,
which consumes my life....) and I've noticed that you often speak of how
you play fighting games in the arcade. This brings me to my point,
which is...is it just me, or are arcade sticks annoying to use? In
my humble opinion, the buttons are too large and the spacing is too wide,
plus the stick makes it a little harder to do those quarter circle motions
that are so common in games like Guilty Gear. I can go through Maniac
mode in Guilty Gear X2 just fine with a PS2 controller, but on a stick
I'd probably get my ass kicked. I've tried Tekken 5 on the stick,
I'm so glad no one was watching...<<; I've got my Devil Jin
up to Tekken Lord on my PS2, but the stick suddenly took my skills away...I
know the layout's alot different, but I guess it's easier for me to conserve
energy and just use my thumbs instead of my whole arm/hand...
Do you prefer any controllers?
The XBox controller, in my opinion, is a monstrosity, and I'm glad they've
left most fighting games well enough alone (they got Guilty Gear #RELOAD,
though. x_x) and the Gamecube I'd say is in the middle, as I got quite
good at Soul Calibur II on that. PS2 controllers are best for fighting
games, in my opinion, as the buttons are well spaced, etc. And dead
last for me are arcade sticks, for the reasons stated above. Are
there any you prefer, or are you just universal about that kind of thing?
I'm not saying controllers would make me responsible for losing, as I believe
losing just comes from a lack of skill, cheap excuses are for losers.
I'm mostly trying to say that me and many people I know have trouble with
certain controllers. I'll stop bothering you now, you've got things
to unlock in Soul Calibur III. <<;
Keep the site going strong,
can't wait for Zasalamel's (and Night Terror's O_O) profiles.
replies: I'll agree with you on the X-box controller, I hate using it...
The Gamecube controller may even be worse. I happen to prefer the PS2 controller
(dual shock) for all my fighting games. It took a long time to master,
but once you get your thumb conditioned, you can pull off pretty much anything
you want. I don't like arcade sticks all that much, but I try to keep my
arcade stick skills solid for arcade competition, but I never use one at
for the mail, glad you're enjoying the site!
ass Cheaters. . .
I just had to tell you bout this fag at school who fucked up his Soul Calibur
3 game. Some fool at school call "Linx", claiming his skills are like an
animal, hence the linx as his nickname tried to cheat in SC3. I remember
in your SC3 review that "You Gameshark whores should be ashamed." Well,
this ass-wipe acutally downloaded an internet password to put in his PS2
so he could unlock all the characters, all the weapons, clothing, you name
it he's got it! BUT...Namco is super smart, in an "equivalent exchange"
if you will, the game actually took EVERY STAGE this man had and left him
with THE WORST stage on the game. The Egyptian stage, which has the WORST
music, the SMALLEST area, and ring-outs on ALL FOUR sides is the only stage
he can play. The stage select screen is literally BLANK with empty blocks
where the stages used to be! I could only play a couple of matches before
getting COMPLETELY pissed and quitting. Serves the bitch right. Ultimate
death and destruction to ANYONE who shows such disrespect to a fighting
game, especially a good one like SC3. I swear, EVERY OTHER victory at school
is a ring-out and I hate it. A proficient guard impacter like myself can
only do so much on such a small stage. Man, fuck Linx, we're playing on
my memory card next time whether he likes it or not. Me and the rest of
the OG gamers at school are gonna keep it honest and unlock everything
traditionally, plus it's fun that way! Well, thought you might get
a kick out of my story and congratulate Namco on stopping cheesy ass cheaters
in their tracks. I sure as hell did.
replies: Namco impresses
me yet again... Thanks for the story.
Friend. . .
I made a simulation of layer
of the magazine!!!
I don't know very English!!!
replies: Hahaha, look at me playing SC2 on that
crappy Gamecube controller!!!
Win a PSX? I'm not giving anyone MY PSX!!! Nice job dude, I love it.
People. . .
just read your latest feedback pages, and it gave me a lot of laughs. I
cant believe how many people on these pages lack brain cells. You really
get these in your inbox? It reminds me of what you said last year about
the 2004 presidential election. "This election proves how many stupid people
are in America." Based on these feedbacks, your right. Its kind of sad
to see that people keep e-mailing you about the character pages, when you
put it clear in bold letters which ones are online. They should be glad
that some of them are online period. I can imagine how boring it is to
downsize all those pictures on your website, along with things to do in
your personal life. Not to mention bandwidth. I want you to know that I
humble myself for your work on this site and as long as you promise that
all the character pages will be online again, I can wait as long as it
takes. Besides, I go to your site for more than just the character sections.
I also go for games I should get based on your reviews, or just for fun
and entertainment, like those feedbacks I read. Okay, you must be tired
of reading this right now, so I'll postpone, but all in all you got a GREAT
site, and its not just because of character sections. "BADASS."
replies: Damn Platinum Mishima, you're on the Nov. / Dec. 05 Feedback
twice? Stop sending me such good mail... Anyways, yes, I actually still
get emails telling me that Steve Fox's page is down or Yuffie's page is
down... Arrgh! I know! I think they do it just to irritate me, but it doesn't
work because I delete their mail before I even finish reading it. And yes,
one day soon all the characters will be online. I'm as anxious as you to
see TFG become complete once again. Thanks for your continued support Mr.
Macro. . .
not the largest fan of the Mortal Kombat series, but this information is interesting
none the less. Also note that I am not trying to be some
douche trying to tell you how to run your site. I visit this site
daily from bother my gaming heart and artistic inspiration. Thanks for
all of he swanky swag you have here.
Ermac (the orange one) his
very MK type origin in the likes of Noob Saibot (Boon and Tobias).
In Mortal Kombat I, there was a highly improbable glitch when selecting
Scorpion, where his costume would appear to be a reddish orange color.
The error message would appear in place of the name, so rather than scorpion,
the message "Error Macro" appears, which is abbreviated to "Ermac".
In midways usual comic relief approach to game production, they created
some moves and gave him a moderate story that I never really cared to find

Book Project. . .
I've been a long time fan of you site.(ever since
like high school) a huge
chunk of my computer was
filled this artwork from
fighting games. We where the
fighting generation you right.
Till this day I still
say masami obari is my favorite
Anyways your site has been
a great help all these
years from character ideas
to techniques in Photoshop.
And I thank you.
anyways I getting ready to
start a whole new comic
book project that I'll be
sending to comic book
companies to see if they'll
pick it up. and to help
thing out I put my first
comic on the web. It old and
very amateurish. but I figured
feed back from other
artist would better my chances
at me doing things
right this time. and when
I thought who can review my
stuff and really give me
great feedback. Someone who
really knows what he's talking
about. And you came to
So check it out at
I repeat this is the first
comic I did start out of
technical school. It was
draw on 8 by 11 size paper
and before then I just knew
how to pencil. The see my
newer artwork I'm send out
new character design
sketches throw my mailing
list in a few weeks. You can
see my some newer stuff on
rocktoon.com (guest art).
The stuff in my flicker galley
is better but still old
Please I really want to do
a top-notch job. It will be
done on 11 by 17 size pages.
I like to think I got
inking down and I mastered
all the Photoshop stuff
too. And if I get the attention
from guys like you
then that would be so great.
Thanks for reading this I
hope to hear from you soon.
replies: Thanks for the mail... Glad you could use TFG for artistic
reference. And good luck with your art!
I slight error. . .
a slight error I noticed. . . I own SVC Chaos: SNK vs Capcom and Athena
isn't in it at all.
I just figured I'd point
But, feel free to correct
me if I may have missed something.
