824th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Clover Studios Publisher: Capcom God Hand‘s lineage becomes clear when you look at the other games. Clover Studios made both Viewtiful Joe and Okami and a part of its creative team went on to make Bayonetta. All of that defines what […]

#701 Fight Night Round 3

792nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: EA Chicago Publisher: EA Sports Oh man. I’ve never really gotten into fighting sports either, and while they’re okay games, the franchise based stuff doesn’t work as well for me – like sports, they can try to be too accurate, rely […]

782nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 1/Dreamcast Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve played a bunch of Street Fighter games before and, well, I think they’ve been looking better over time. Now while this might seem like another variation of the third game, based on the title, it’s actually part […]

769th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Spike Publisher: Spike/Agetec/505 Games I don’t get wrestling. I’m not even talking about fakeness or performances, I don’t really get the appeal of watching people fight. I think I struggled with that in the previous WWE game we discussed. Fire Pro […]

727th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1984 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Data East So I don’t really look forward to these early fighting games – the genre isn’t the best in general and it’s not until the likes of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter that we see some of the […]

#434 Marvel vs Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes

722nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Dreamcast Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom I’ve had a chance to play the Marvel vs Capcom series before, although that was the third part of the series rather than the second. Tying into Capcom’s Street Fighter franchise at first, setting up its characters against Marvel […]

#169 Final Fight

Tags: , , ,

670th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Final Fight is not a one-on-one fighter (as I thought for some time) – instead it’s another beat ’em up like Double Dragon. I guess it’s just one to experience. Our Thoughts This mostly felt like a pretty straight […]

660th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Rare Publisher: Midway/Rare/Nintendo While I had the Rare Replay disc out, this came up, so it felt like a good game to pick up next. I’ve had a couple of Killer something fighting and shooting games on the list. Of course a […]

#735 Virtua Fighter 5

658th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Sega AM2 Publisher: Sega The Virtua Fighter series, as we saw with the first game, is a series that, for me, still feels like it introduced 3D fighting and created far more open arenas. Quite some time on, we’re now […]

#741 Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins

649th played so far Genre: Platform/Fighting Platform: PSP Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Tose Publisher: Capcom I’ve not done the best at Ghosts ‘n Goblins or Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, two arcade platformers that, by virtue of being arcade games, are pretty difficult. By 2006, however, arcades are no longer the primary way of playing games […]
