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 […]

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 […]

632nd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Next Level Games Publisher: Nintendo When I started playing this, I thought I’d already played Super Punch-Out, but I turned out to be wrong. I must have tried a game in the series before, but not this one. The reason I thought […]

#307 Guardian Heroes

Tags: , , , ,

603rd played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Saturn Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Treasure Publisher: Sega The genre of fighting games is pretty broad as used here, and has a tendency to overlap with the action genre. Here it isn’t the one-on-one fighting you might get from, say, Street Fighter, but it’s closer to the […]

600th played so far Genre: Adventure/Fighting Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Rocksteady Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive Although this was a big milestone game that I normally look forward to, it took me a while to actually get to it – the past few months (as of the time of writing) have […]

599th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade Year of Release: 1987 Developer: Technos Japan Publisher: Taito When I was younger, one of our NES games (that I played over and over) was Double Dragon III, a fun two player beat ’em up that we invested a lot of time in – even if I’m […]
