Fanarts. . .
Hi! I made two fanarts from capcom's
games: Morrigan Aenslad from Darkstalkers
and Chun-Li from Street Fighter 2. So i wanted to know if it
is possible for you to put them on your website. It would be a honor for
me because your site is a great reference for many characters. If you prefer
not putting them on i understand.
replies: Man, I really like your style! ...Your coloring is
excellent and the way you draw female faces is quite good.
Thank you for sharing!!!
Plans. . .
Quite an impressive site you have here. You are one of the few OPEN MINDED
people who have been able to break down fighting games and appreciate them
artistically (I'm one of them also). The name is Kennith, and my dream
job is to work for a gaming company as an artist and its actually in my
future plans, because I'm taking quite a few college classes for it. As
I stated before, I love browsing your site for reference (and you bet I
browse it like an art gallery). I can spend about 20-25 minutes on just
one of your character profiles. Haha! Your comments are also funny as hell
to read sometimes, yet well thought out. Some people might not immediately
understand what you are referring to with your comments sometimes, because
a lot of people are artistically challenged as you say. Ha ha! Well I guess
I'm just letting you know that I agree with a lot of your critiques to
the characters, and I understand what you're talking about almost 100%
of the time. It's tremendously strange how alike my thoughts are to yours
Well man, I'm just giving you the props you had coming. Thanks a million
Frank. Snazzy new t-shirts by the way.
Hey it takes a keen mind to appreciate things artistically. I'm glad you're
able to enjoy this site to the fullest! Thanks for the mail. And do pick
up a t-shirt! Then you'd get props from me. Heh heh.
an Art Museum. . .
ASS Fighter's Generation site!! Hands down the best fighting game related
website I've ever accidentally came across lol. Although the fighter profiles
take a while to load everything (pictures, gifs) like you said..It's like
browsing through an art museum, and it's well worth it too. Keep it up!
At least someone listens to what I say... Ha ha ha!
South Africa. . .
in south africa and i think you have a really cool site
of the fighting games i have not even seen in our country and it just makes
me wanna play them more
`cause of our PAL systems and the fact that the only 2d fighters we can
play are VS games we kinda behind when compared to the guys in the states...but
nonetheless it`s still cool to play them
more of a 3d gamer when it comes to fighting games as those are the ones
that are here in massive quantities
tekken series is my favourite as are Soul Caliber and Virtua Fighter
u have a great site and don`t u worry sir i`m making sure everybody down
here knows about it
Thanks for the heads up from South Africa! Wow, sometimes I forget how cool
this internet thing really is... Thanks for spreading the fighting spirit over
in South Africa!
Godsend. . .
Before I get started, I must give credit where credit is due--your site's
a godsend for us fighting game addicts throughout the world, and I hope
to see it continue to grow and flourish as I've seen it do since I discovered
it almost three years ago. With that said, let's move right along, shall
the letter in your January February 04 section where someone had asked about the story behind Bison's name and
his change in looks between the Street Fighter
Alpha and Street Fighter 2 games. I
went and did some checking around, and this might shed some light on things.
Yes, it's true--in Japan, Bison's
actual name is Vega. The official reason that it was changed was because
that M. Bison was the name given to the character known here in the states
as Balrog. As we all know, Capcom (and other fighting game makers, as well)
tend to create character based off of real-life people (Feilong
from Bruce Lee, Andore from Andre
The Giant, etc.), and M. Bison (Balrog)
-was- Capcom's version of Mike Tyson. But when Street Fighter 2 was to
be released stateside, -both Capcom and Capcom USA feared that Tyson
might sue the company due to likeness infringement, so they quickly swapped
character names. M. Bison (original names first) became Balrog, Balrog
became Vega, and Vega became M. Bison, with Sagat able to avoid a name
switch due to the name being previously established in Street Fighter 1.
and as for your Cable/Juggernaut/Guile MvsC2 team, Frank? All I've got
is three names to answer that with--Akuma/Dr. Doom/Juggernaut. Mu ha.
Thanks for the appreciation
and also clearing up the story behind Bison's name (for those that don't
Some Questions. . .
love your site. Its awesome. I just got some questions:
you plan to expand upon the "story" parts for the games in the "Games"
hear Ken (the one from street fighter) was the main character in his own
game. Do you know the title of that game, if so, for what system is it?
haven't played too many fighting games compared to other people in this
site. I was wondering, are there any Arab fighting game characters? I mean,
im an arab, so i would love to see my culture in there. Ive seen every
other ethnic group besides that. Could you give me any names?
too am a martial artist. Ive been training in Goju-Ryu karate for 5 years.
I was wondering, in taekwondo do they teach any internal punches? I figure
you would be the best person to ask since, well, you've taken taekwondo
for quite a while.
you for your time.
Alright, onto the questions then!
Yes, and hopefully soon!
Capcom released a game called Street Fighter 2010 who's main character's
name was "Ken," whom is a "retired martial artist turned
scientist who has artificially enhanced his body with bionics".
though one might speculate it's the same Ken we all know and love from
the SF series, Capcom confirmed that they are entirely different
characters... So the answer to your question is "No."
could be wrong, but Darun Mister
may possibly have a bit of the ethnicity you mentioned. Or at least he
looks it. Pullum Purna might be
Karate... Awesome! My style of TaeKwonDo does include pressure point strikes (at
black belt level),
which in combination, can lead to internal effects. If you know that kind
of stuff, seriously, you can disable someone very fast... Crazy stuff!
for the mail! Keep training hard.
is long overdue don'cha think?
off, your site is the best fighting game site on the net, keep up the great
work, we all thank you.
second, i'm really excited about the mention you made about SF3 being released
for the PS2. I have one myself and even wondered if they would re-release
it for the PS2.
last a fighting game dream comes true. At last, those of us who have never
played it will not be denied any longer. Thanks oh,so much for the
tip,Frank you are good with the news.
I agree 100% with you that capcom has been pretty lazy not giving us anything
new on the greatest fighting game that ever lived.
personally...I think a SF4 is long overdue don'cha think?
thanks for the info on the new SF action figures I look forward to those,and
I also read the new comic series,let's hope it lasts longer than the last
one if ya catch my drift.
for lending an ear and good luck at your next fighting game tournament.
I hope you win big time!
wouldn't say Street Fighter 4 is "overdue" because Capcom
clearly worked incredibly
hard on the Street Fighter series, and SF3
is definitely hard to "top." I'm sure they're taking their time because
they don't want to make any fatal mistakes with the series... I say they should
take their time and do it right, but that's assuming that they're actually
working on the project. So who knows.
what's your opinion on the possible Soul Calibur movie?
the hell is going on?!
just read about the news...just have one thing to say...WHAT THE HELL IS
ON?! A great game like soul Calibur is going to be taken to the
hands of Warren Zide. *cry*

probably have today's crude music as well. Oh man, it's such a scary
I can't even imagine it. There goes the game industry. I thought for
there was a respectable company. What the hell was NAMCO thinking?
there was a man that I could kill in Hollywood-this man would definitely
one of them. This guy has no sense of making movies, almost nobody in
anyway, but this guy-American Pie!? I have to say this- I hated
movie so much (just by ads) I never saw it. The standard seemed
Final destination was stupid as well and now he has Soul
*Takes out shotgun and shoots Zide to pieces* Even I could have
a better movie. So that's it. A good quality work is going to be
into some hideous (no offense) NEO-AMERICAN work. Now remember
after seeing the movie, think-The game was not the movie...the
was not the movie...the game was not the movie...
this is how it works in today's industry: "If the majority of the
it, it will make money. Forget the quality, because many of today's
have no sense." Soul Calibur is an excellent work of art. The
the characters, heck, even the music is perfect. There is a nice
and no waste of game play is what also makes the independent stories
There have been very few movies that have made it to this
Star Wars, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Raiders of the Lost Ark,
Godfather, Goldfinger etc. Some one who has an understanding of the
in Soul Calibur will succeed in making the movie; even intricate
on the buildings, beautiful fighting arenas should not even be
The dialog will probably include sayings like this:

the whole story. Yeah, it will probably be worse than the dubbing
Dragon Ball Z, and I would not be surprised to find Reese Witherspoon

Ozbournes might be in the stupid shit!My point is in today's world, anything
happen and with Warren Zide, you're asking for some really stupid work.
even though I have made a string statement, there is another thing I
to say. I could be wrong. Maybe the movie wont be as bad as I am
it can be, yeah right.

- If this movie will actually be anything.
*Applause* You're a very smart girl Rinoa... And you said it all with brilliance
and style. I need not say anything... Except for... "I agree whole-heartedly."
just red about the new Soul Calibur movie on your site, and I will tell
that it will probably suck, and I have a few reasons.
video game can get away with being bloodless, but I don't think that
translate well to the movies. Remember the Mortal Kombat movies (bet
wish you didn't)? I saw the first one and it was squeaky clean, a
kids. I'm sure that Hollywood will make also make a child's movie
Soul Calibur. A movie with weapons, especially swords, needs blood.
actors will probably be actors who can't fight without stunt doubles, or
who do their own stunts but are unable to properly act. A good
game movie must deliver a good, believable story to go along with
excellent fight scenes. I heard that the producers are trying to
Chan to join the crew, which is good, but every character is
Jackie can't play all of them. I'm also crossing my fingers so
they don't use a CGI animated Astaroth.
script will definitely be embarrassing . When I say embarrassing,
that the dialogue will be as lame as the announcer before every
in Soul Calibur 2 ("A man searching to fulfill his destiny, blah blah
I hope that it will seem a bit more natural, but I bet every
will be talking about destiny, good and evil, etc.
Another opinion in the same direction. Good points as well...Geez, this
is easy... I don't have to type much at all for these feedbacks.
kind of wanted to cry. . .
when I heard who was producing it..... I at first tried to be
but at the same time deep down inside, I kind of wanted to
WHY IN THE NAME OF EVERYTHING GOOD AND DECENT IS THIS HAPPENING?!
PIE IS ONE OF THE STUPIDEST, GODFORSAKEN SERIES IN EXISTENCE (and
fact that there's actually a fan base just shows how low our American
standards are) AND YET THEIR PRODUCER IS BEING ALLOWED TO MAKE
a bit of sanity* Okay seriously, I'm gonna give the guy a
I don't know why but my instincts say to keep an eye on this
Just because he's the producer doesn't mean he has complete
creative control (work with me, please! I'm trying hard as hell to
optimistic) because I mean, you still have writers, directors, the
etc. As long as he doesn't WRITE IT I think there's still a chance
be entertaining, right? Right?!! *trying hard not to break
Frank, please don't put Smash Bros. on Gamegen. It was an alright
I don't think the Nintendo character galleries (with the exception of
would be all that cool. Very rarely do those 'character' games work
well. If you put that on Gamegen you might as well put in DBZ Budoukai
Inuyasha or something. Just my opinion. Adios!
V / Vashaun H.
You alright man? Just relax...
I'm gonna give the guy a chance as well, but I don't think it'll help him
Do not worry Vashaun... There's no way in hell "Pikachu" will ever have
a page... EWW!!! Fuck... You made me type it's name...
I'll never forgive you.
Opinions, Opinions. . .
opinions, opinions....To be perfectly honest with you, I'm half and half
on the subject. Sure, I enjoy the fact that a great game is about to be
made into a movie and I'm also curious to see how it is going to come out.
But the question is will the game become another Street Fighter "bomb"(
the movie was crap if you didn't see it) or will it actually be a director's
work of art. You see Frankie, you can't just judge the guy who's making
the movie. Like you've'' stated many times in your opinion, all his movies
were basically ass crap. HOWEVER, wouldn't it be safe to say that he has
never directed this type of movie genre before in his career.( Like you've
said before "American Pie" and " Final Destination") Therefore, we don't
know if he's good at action movies or not.
Thats how I feel about to say the least. So, yes, I would want them to
make the movie and I would go see it as well.
animated movies rock!!!.....But if you haven't noticed American public
does not react well to serious cartoons...although Street Fighter is bar
none the best animated movie in my opinion....Sagat got robbed...
replies: The fact that we're
talking a fighting game movie, and this is his FIRST attempt at an action
movie... Means mathematically, us Soul Calibur fans are doomed if this movie is
Happens, Happens. . .
I read about this today in
your site, which I know most about. I thought I'd
throw in my two cents and
say what I have to say about this.
I have some of the same expectations
you have, and yes, I was not shocked
about the fact that such
staff as the one for American Pie and Final
Destination would be doing
this movie, it was just bound to end that way,
and only to lower our expectations
of this movie.
Street Fighter and the MK
series were probably not made by the same company
but hell, those two where
bad, bad movies. It seems as if the fighter movies
follow the pattern of "the
better the games, the worser the movies"
(depending on your opinion,
I believe that SF was better than MK, and the MK
movie was better than the
SF movie, by a lot). If the Soul Calibur movie has
the same destiny, I would
not be surprised, but we just have to wait and
Saying that the movie would
be better animated is not a safe thing to say.
Most likely, it would fall
under the hands of Masami Obair (fatal fury,
voltage fighter gowcaizer,
battle arena toshinden), and if this happens,
we're looking at the same
destiny as the one it had with the American
company. If the movie is
animated through an American company, it wouldn't
be any better either, its
animation would suck, unless its handled by Disney
and...that doesn't sound
like it would happen.
Whatever happens, happens,
and no matter how it goes, we can- after the
movie is sadly released and
the box office scores are set - say that
fighting game fans "revolve
around cheap movies and intense gameplay".
Hopefully, the world will
open its eyes to the fact that no-one will ever be
able to transfer a badass
video game into a good movie.
Not that I liked the game
that much anyways. At least SNK-Playmore is
keeping themselves at bay
against the media world, with the KOF series.
Likewise with Sammy and Guilty
