No Punches. . .
I humbly ask that you forgive
me for not speaking up to you sooner.
I am one of the rare few people
who have been lurking and wandering around on your site since the first
month of creation.
I must apologize for good
reason, as I haven't given you the proper respect, as majority of the still
art and animated images on my drive were taken right from your site. I've
been using your site as a valuuable resource of information and great
inspiration for my personal work.
I'd like to personally pay
you back as my way of saying thanks for all of the time and effort you've
put into running this site for so long, and I hope that you keep it running
strong. (I won't deny the fact that this is only in my personal greed to
keep your site running so I may continue keeping my inspiration around,
In essence, I'll be acting as your personal...Heihachi.)
I'll not only donate a generous
amount of money to you, but I'll ask of you to do me a favor, one you probably
You see, I'm also an avid
fan of Tekken, and I just so happen to have a PS3...
...of course you see where
I'm going with this...
As you've probably guessed,
I also get my inspiration from skilled challengers in certain fighting
games, and I'd be more than happy to do battle with you in Tekken 5:DR
Be warned that I'm not so
sure how Ill be able to stack up to you, but I am the best in my hometown.
This is strictly due to the lack of friends (freeloaders) or other relatives
who wish to play fighting games as opposed to Halo, NFL/NBA and other Irrelevant
titles. (The few who do play rarely stop by, and even then, they do not
play/practice enough when away to reach my current level of skill.)
Probably just like you, I
get no enjoyment from beating the lesser skilled player. I prefer an equal
match, or somebody who is several times better than I. If anything, I'll
probably be your personal punching bag for the first 2~3 rounds until I'm
properly warmed up.(maybe even longer if you play like "Daigo" does in
SF III )
Anyway, enough of this Ego-inflating
I'll send you $200.00 USD
Via paypal, and I Issue you a challenge in Tekken once it goes online.
I want to at least play you within the first week or so.
I hope you're as good as good
as you say. I expect you to give it your all, pull no punches.
replies: Well, if it's a challenge in Tekken 5: DR you want, you need
not look any further. I play a lot of different characters and I switch
up my style a lot, so I'm sure you'll enjoy fighting against me, even when
you lose. Hah! We'll definitely have to meet up in the T5:DR Battle Lobby
and have some matches when the game comes out. And when Home is
released, I'll be sure to invite you over for some coffee and maybe to
watch some videos on my big HDTV... lol. Then we can play some more Tekken,
or Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix perhaps?
that was a very generous donation my friend... It was certainly the MOST
generous donation TFG has ever recieved!!! Thank you sincerely... And I
hope you've been enjoying your complimentary TFG Subscription along with
your TFG T-shirt. And I hope to talk to you soon about some online matches.
And by the way, I never pull any punches... But I do taunt.
why tekken 6 why!
Hey master frank
I like tekken but they didn't
have to F**K S**T UP!
A fat man?! it's pathetic!
i'm very pissed they going to kill there own franchise and they better
make some better than this!
replies: Whoa buddy... Someone needs to relax and put down their inhaler.
First off, it would take a lot more than a fat man in suspenders to "kill"
the Tekken franchise. Second, and lastly, I can't wait to choose Bob! LMAO!
I can't wait to see how he fights... And I'm positive he'll make for some
good comic relief in the Tekken series! Let the Bob jokes begin!!!
in advance. . .
Sorry in advance for my english,
I just want to know the price
for the big poster of soul
calibur movie and for the shipping if
Im living in Quebec, Canada
Thanks in advance
replies: You are umm... Forgiven, in advance. And that
poster isn't for sale...
It isn't even in my possession. Hahaha, and if it was I probably wouldn't sell
it to you. It would go straight to
EBAY. Starting bid? Hmmm.... $300.
and you're welcome in advance. Or rather, in closing... Whatever.
Customization. . .
Heh, I've been a fan of your
website for 5 years now, and this is my first email to you. Anyway, Soul
Calibur 4 is looking awesome, and they've more or less sold me on the fact
that they're improving upon the Character Customization. Hopefully the
characters will be alot more balanced this time around i.e. Rock's not
completely gimped while Sophitia's in a tier above everyone else.By the
way, did you know that Basara Cross X is being developed by Arc Systems?
I'm a huge fan of the Guilty Gear series, so I'm wondering if anything
will be carried over? Oh, and try ignore the legions of fanboys who are
pissed about Sammy trying something new with Guilty Gear. Those dumbasses
are the same type of people who boycotted Capcom for releasing Devil May
Cry 4 on the Xbox 360. Anyway, keep up the good work, and keep on fighting!
P.S. Yeah, that last line
is pretty damn corny, sorry about that...
replies: Hey there Kyle, glad I could keep your interest for the last
5 years. I agree that Soul Calibur 4 is shaping up nicely. Finally a true
"next gen" remake to one of my favorite 3D fighting systems. I think the
Character Customization will be better than ever... And I even have a good
idea for it. Why don't they make the "random character" (like Charade or Olcadon) a customizable character. Or at least give your custom character
the option of being random!
Cross X also looks interesting to say the least. It's been too long since
there's been a new "samurai fighting game."
6 and some other stuff. . .
Hey Frank, it's Marco Guerrero.
It's been a while and
I'd figure that I would have
to talk about Tekken 6
and some other stuff.
About Tekken 6
After looking at info on
the private show and some
vids on youtube, this Tekken
has in fact changed in
many ways. First of all,
the graphics had changed
massively and look stunning,
but even though some
character's looks haven't
changed it's because Namco's
working on new animations
and new moves for those
characters instead of just
rehashing the same old
graphics like what midway
had stupidly done with MK
armageddon, or what had happened
with capcom fighting
Plus they're going even
more in-depth with the
customization system. Namco
said something about how
players can really customize
a character so much that
he/she doesn't really look
Two things I found mysterious
about tekken 6 is that
alot of characters have gotten
"weaker" in terms of
offense because Namco is
doing something to please
players that are new to Tekken
probably so they don't
get raped easily.lol
Also, some moves have new
animations and some moves
have different effects. For
example you know how
paul's phoenix smasher usually
pushed the opponent
back in Tekken DR? Well in
Tekken 6, the opponent
won't be pushed back which
means that the opponent can
punish the move with just
about any quick launcher
move. And heihachi's twin
pistons (launcher move), is
gone, instead of the second
hit being a launcher,
it'll look like the hammer
punch move which could be a
And from the private show,
they say that Kazuya is the
strongest of the mishimas
and Namco's working on Jin
kazama because of the complaints
of low strength and
low speed. Plus steve fox,
can still do some beautiful
which is good for steve
players. And last but not
least, Namco's planning on
making the new Tekken even
more real and something 10x
fun to bring tekken player
veterans back to continue
the ownage. Like for example,
law's style is looking
even more like bruce lee's
actual figting style seen
in the countless movies he's
been in. And the rage
mode, you know when a character's
fists are glowing
kind of reffers to MK trilogy's
agressor ability and
how it increases your attack
power. Anyways' there's
Tekken 6 for ya. Other than
that it's 60-70% done.
Yeah I know it's a pretty
long email but it's just
because it's been a while
and all ya know? Anyways I
also happen to be an artist.
I've been drawing things
all my life such as fighting
game characters of
course, creatures, people,
and girls. You should see
some of the work I do, I
have a few nice tekken pics
too but yet I plan to work
on more. How about I make a
nice tekken one for ya? Here's
how it should be, you
in the middle with the characters
you use in Tekken
and the fighter's generation
logo on the top of the
That's pretty much it for
now. It's great that your
site is still at style, keep
up the good work!!
replies: I agree with you that
Tekken 6 is a GREAT improvement over Tekken 5, and is a much better
sequel than the crappy sequels for MK: Deadly Alliance sequels. Namco really
knows what the fans want... The new animations and moves look spectacular, and
from what I've seen from the vids, Tekken 6 will be the best Tekken yet.
Thanks for the mail!
bashing of various. . .
Man, I never did bored strolling
the Generation and laughing at the bashing of various MK titles for I though
the series died for me at 3.
But since I do have weak memory
when it comes to remembering the little things, but who was your favorite
character again? I remember one was Iori and Genjuro, but I can't remember
the rest. If this gets on the feedback, no matter the lenght...just let
whip it out. lol
replies: MK deserves bashing... that's all there is to it. Favorite
characters? You're pretty close there. As you may know, I'm known as F.
Yagami... A devoted member to the Yagami clan (the same one as Iori). Then
there's Genjuro, my absolute favorite badass samurai.
is the artist. . .
Who is the artist that does
the "falcoon badass" pics that I see on a lot of
the main king of fighters
characters? Like Mai, Terry, K, And Iori and I
know there is more. If you
could give me a website of the artist that would
be cool. Thanks...
replies: The artist's name is "Falcoon." He is one of my favs...
Love his style!
at fighting games. . .
What are you, some kinda
god at fighting games? It would seem so. But to the point, I love TFG because
I had been SEARCHING and SEARCHING endlessly for a site with as much concept
art for my favorite fighting games and I have clearly found it. I am an
"aspiring" manga artist and I come to your site all the time for some character
costume ideas. My fave series are Samurai Shodown, Guilty Gear and Soul
Calibur, and you had everything for each. ~Thumbs up~ I'm spreadin the
word about this site. Oh and I was wondering, what do you tell all the
girls when they come into your crib and see all them "toys" ?
replies: I am indeed a self-proclaimed
"God" at fighting games... Muahahahaha!!! No really, anyone
that ever played me in a fighting game (I'm good at) would tell you that
I'm pretty good.
To answer your question... In all honestly: Any girl that ever came to my crib
and say my toys was "taken back" and overall impressed by them of
course... Street Fighter action figures are instant "cool" points, trust
me. You stand out as "different" when you collect toys, and some girls
think that's cute. Hey, it's worked for me so far! ;)
Fighting Game. . .
First of all, Great site man!
I'm glad I found it since I'm a big fighting game fanatic! I love to watch
martial arts movies, and just like you, I also like to draw! (I have done
several drawings of my Ideal Video Game- Super Smash Bros VS Power Stone)
I do have other hobbies but gaming is my number one! I have a few questions
to ask ya.
What are your favorite fighting
games, favorite characters, favorite special moves, and what fighting game
character would you love to be as? And what would be Your Ideal Fighting
My #1 favorite fighting game
of all time is Power Stone 2 for the Sega Dreamcast (It's fun, addictive,
and the multiplayer battles are insane!) Followed by my other favorites
Super Smash Bros, Tekken, Soul Calibur, and all the Street Fighter games.
The reason that Fighting is my favorite genre, because there's simple nothing
better then beating the crap of your opponents and plus the competition
is always great when playing against friends or other players! Fighting
Games are just not that appreciated, and have not reached their full potential.
I'm a gamer/nerd and I'm proud of it. Fighting games these days are looking
better and better and I can't wait to play Tekken 6, Soul Calibur 4 and
Legends, and most of all, Super Smash Bros Brawl! I think this year and
next year will be good for fighting games!
If I could be someone from
a fighting game, It would have to be Wang-Tang from the Power Stone games.
(He's a tribute to Goku from DBZ, hence the Golden spiky hair and moves
and I like his design. Not to mention he's my #1 favorite video game character
My favorite special move would
have to be Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch from Super Smash Bros. (I send
opponents flying with that move and I love it!)
One more question for you
man. What upcoming fighting game are you looking forward to the most?
replies: Hmm, it feels like I've answered some of these questions before...
Prolly because I have, but my answers of course change over the years,
so perhaps it's not a bad idea to answer them once again... Lemme get to
fighting games - Marvel VS Capcom 2, Street Fighter III: Third Strike,
Soul Calibur 2, Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, and Samurai Shodown 2... Those
are my top 5 favorite fighting games.
characters - Hmm, should I bring back "Frank's Favorites?" Here are a few
of my ALL TIME favs: Genjuro, Iori, Gato, Feng Wei, Kazuya, Remy, Urien,
Dudley, Steve Fox, Ivy, Mitsurugi, & Haohmaru.
special moves - BUSTER WOLF!!!, SHIN..... SHORYUKEN!!!, AEGIS REFLECTOR
game character I'd want to be - Probably Gill or Urien... I would totally
show off the bod.
fighting game - Open-ended and creative combo system, option of 3 on 3
tag team fighting, cancelable super moves into partner supers... Hmm, I
think I just described MvC2.
Gamers. . .
Hey, Frank! Its been so long!
I hope you havent forgotten about me...and you I think you have. Otherwise,
I would have heard from you 3 months ago. lol. Why did you leave me hanging
like that. Terry (Terry Bogard, My sexy beloved) and the rest of the KOF
guys had to keep me company. Oh! Yeah! I didnt announce that Terry and
I are getting married. lol! Ahem* Anyway, I went to your site last week...and
Ivy's boobies was in my face!! lol! You are so silly! I should protest!
Girl gamers, like myself, need to see some shaking too...and I dont need
to get into that. lol! But, I would love to play Dead or alive and have
men run around in thongs! lol! You know, it would so be a girls dream come
I am so looking forward to
Tekken and Soul Calibur coming out that I can hardly stand it! lol! I hope
to hear from you soon! And watch out for Ivy! Her breasteseses maybe bouncy..but,
I head Mai say that Ivy has nothing on her! lol!
replies: Dead or Alive is bad enough with the
overly busty / slutty girls... It really doesn't
need men in thongs. If you're looking for men in thongs just play Tekken
4 and pick Heihachi. That should satisfy your cravings...
I didn't get back to you before. I'm quite the busy person nowadays. Take
care! And I'm glad you we're enjoying Ivy's boobies! XD
Fighter Forever. . .
Your site is literally the
best for sprites I have ever seen. I have searched hours and hours, even
to perhaps days, for some of the sprites you have. You are the best!!!
You are the greatest. Street Fighter forever.
replies: Thank you... Gracias... Domo Arigato...
the f*ck is so evil about M. Bison. . .
First of all I want to congratulate
you for such a splendid site, I visit it
at least once a week for
the last 6 years. I´ve sent you some pics that
aren´t in the site (yuga,amazon,mr.karate ryo),and some "separated at birth"
& "if you crossed" submissions,
but seems you didn´t like it, because I
don´t see any of it,
or, do I have to own a subscription for you to answer or
something? That hurt my feelings
because I wanted to be useful to the
Anyway, my question is, WHAT
THE FUCK IS SO EVIL ABOUT M.BISON?
I never get his so called
"evilness", you know, what´s so evil about a cheap
cliche, fat dark skinned
third world dictator, dressed like a nazi parody
costume? His fighting style
isn´t that cruel or anything, like Genjuro´s,
Cervantes or Geese´s.
Those are really mean characters not only in their
looks but also their personality
and moves, don´t you think? Geese could
beat the shit out of Bison anyday, just by countering him. You know
something Frank? Just americans
think about Bison as the ultimate evil
character, period. Think
What about some SS Tenka´s
Regards, thanks again for
your site man, I love it.
replies: Hey there Vlad (nice name)... So you're a long time visitor
I see. Cool! Well, honestly I don't remember your contributions. But then
again, I do currently have 400 UNREAD EMAIL MESSAGES in my inbox. I still
do get a lot of mail, and I still do have a life, and I still do dread
weeding through the junk mail and retard mail. Sometimes I simply let those
contributions sit in my inbox for months and months, then it turns into
a year and I still haven't gotten to it. So it's probably in there, I'll
have to take a look.
in response to your question... What's so evil about M. Bison? Dare you
ask? Well, maybe it's that sinister grin. Or perhaps the most evil of evil
laughs. MUUU HU HU HU HE HE HE HEEE. Dude, Bison is a badass because he's
Bison. And there's one move that Geese CAN'T counter... That being the
Psycho Crusher! Or even a better example, the SFA3 Level 3 Psycho Crusher...
Goodnight! PSSSYCHOOOO CRUSHHHAAAAAH!!!! So what make's Bison so evil?
Two words. Psycho Crushaaah.
