few more stuff. . .
WAh, Halloween. The time
where Demitri, Gallon, and the others rule. (Especially Morrigan). I've
got a few more stuff for you.
Jeffery looks a lot like Mr.
T. Well, if Jeffery had Mr. T's hair.
Dural looks like a female
T-1000 from Terminator 2. Like you didn't see that one coming.
Guy and Maki is out of the
question. Then again, I probably shouldn't have listed this one. Too easy.
How about, Hayabusa and
Not very different, huh? You
should see some of his DOA 2 Ultimate costumes.
Oh, how 'bout
It's that hairstyle, has to
Vocal Mismatch time!
Dan (Taunt): Trust a buster!
Dan (Taunt): A ninja did,
Charlie (Taunt): Two years!
(Just listen to it in MVC2 and you'll see what I mean.)
Zabel (Hell Dunk): My turn!
(I thought he said this, but he's really saying "Nice Dunk!", so...)
Also, note that when Phobos
dies, he sounds just like Pitfall Harry.
Well, I'll be back with stuff
that's a bit more... worthwhile. Later!
replies: Heh... Thanks for the contributions! I never saw the Kage
and Hayabusa one coming. Couldn't you just as easily add in like 80 more
ninjas that look alike? Damn those ninjas... can't tell them apart. lol
Gen. . .
Webmaster Yagami!! your site
rocks my socks. EVERY character and fighting game I ever wanted to see
is on your site. Im glad you left out some of the lame ones too, although
your comments on lame characters are funny. ^__^ Well great job on the
site, and I got a question for you.. What do you think of the next gen
systems and which do you plan to buy???
replies: Haha, I'm tired of doing "Lame" character profiles, but I
do it anyway... it's my job. Sometimes it's fun... lol. So, onto your question.
Here's my current opinion of all the next gen systems... which is subject
to change of course.
Nintendo Wii - Innovative... looks fun... but seems to require more
energy than I may have to expend on a video game. I've always looked
to video gaming as more of a "relaxing" pastime. Using a traditional controller
just seems for practical to me for many games, but I'll be open minded.
I wasn't really planning on buying one at launch, but my girlfriend actually
has hers already pre-ordered, so I'll be "getting my Wii on" and probably
pick up a few games that I deem interesting.
2. Xbox 360 - I didn't get too excited about
Xbox 360 when it came out,
and I still don't own one because there aren't any games for it I truly
desire to play... or that I can't play on another system. Unlike many people,
I don't play a game just for the graphics, it really has to stimulate my
mind so that I want to play it more and get better at it... and I'm already
playing plenty of games that are doing that for me. So I guess I
don't have the motivation or the time for Xbox360... or maybe it has something
to do with the fact that Xbox360's game library consists of 87% first
person shooters, which I'm not a huge fan of. Also, the PS3 and Xbox360
will share a lot of the same games much like PS2 and Xbox did, so I'll
probably just pick up a PS3.
Playstation 3 - A must buy for me... but not at launch. I'm quite disappointed
with the PS3 launch titles, as very few interest me that much. And I cant
believe there are NO FIGHTING GAMES at launch... tisk tisk. Virtua Fighter
5 (and a few other games I'm looking forward to) got pushed back to 2007,
so I suppose I can wait until then. But I think I'll grab one before the
year ends. My girlfriend works at EB so I got the hook up!

sprites. . .
Hey there Frankie!
First of all, I was honored
to see my e-mail posted in your feedback section... I've been a big fan
of the site ever since, well, ever, and to see a little bit of me in it
is really cool.
I'm studying to become a graphic
designer, and this is my last year of the course. In it, I have to elaborate
a conclusion paper. My paper, as most might expect, is about games. I'm
working on a discussion about the evolution of the animation in games,
from the abstraction of characters in old games to the differences between
each generation of certain characters.
I done the classic bits like
Mario, Sonic and DK and am not thinking of doing the same with Ryu. Only
problem is his sprites are really hard to find, especially his Street Fighter
1 and Street Fighter The Movie sprites... I need to have the full body
ones as well as the portraits. I found lots and lots of artwork and they
work fine in their own merit, but I really need real sprites because of
the focus I'm taking in the paper, that is, the graphic the player sees
So I was wondering if you
could help me with that, seeing you have such a vast collection of sprites
and graphics, and that Ryu is one of your faves (well, used to be when
you had the favorites system).
I would really, really, appreciate
it if you could help me out.
But if you're not able to,
I would still be really appreciative because of your awesome site and the
fun it has brought me all these years.
Anyway, best of luck and hope
everything is well with you!

replies: Yet another college paper influenced by fighting
games... cool! Well, just head over to Ryu's page and check out the animations.
You should find pretty much every stance animation from SF1 to Third Strike,
but I'm sorry, no Street Fighter: The Movie sprites yet. That game is actually "missing"
from the games library because it sucks so much. Anyhow, I'm sure you've
found or will find what you're looking for here at TFG. Thanks for visiting!

few Ninjitsu stances. . .
I just a basic question here,
I played Tekken Dark Resurrection today on my PSP and during Story mode
with Yoshimitsu I lost (pfft I lost in a stage 4 fight, yes Im ashamed haha) anyways after I lost a cut scene started where Raven was teaching
Yoshimitsu a few Ninjitsu stances I was wondering would you at all know
any others who have something like this in their destined fights in Tekken
I might as well be a real
kiss ass now and just mention how educated in some fighting games and characters
ive never heard of hehe.
replies: Aye thanks mate! I haven't seen that cutscene until you told
me about it... I've heard about bonus cut scenes for losing in Tekken 5's
story mode, but never actually saw ANY until now! And that one was quite
hilarious... Poor Yoshimitsu! LOL!

Club. . .
Hello. This is the
presidential advisor of the SGA Club of the City College of New York. I
operate as the chief of staff for the executives. We came across
your website, and, well, it's very nice. Your style and presentation
is remarkable. We did have some questions for you. We hope
you can get to answer them.
1) How long did it take
you to create this website? We are hoping to make a website of our
own, and, we could use some tips.
2) If our website is
posted, is it possible we could use your site as a link, for promotional
3) How do you choose
which of the games and characters you want to showcase on your website?
Is it a personal preference? Do you go on the popularity of the games?
Or do you base it on the gifs, pics, etc., that you receive from different
Thank you for your time in
reading this. We hope to hear from you soon.
replies: Whoa, you guys sound all professional and such. I guess I'll
have to turn on my professional tone. Pleased to meet you, and thank you
for the generous compliments! Too answer your questions...
has been online since 2000/2001, so it took this long to get it to where it
on what kind of website it is, but most likely, yes.
is more of a personal preference than anything else at the moment. The games section is missing
some lesser known games, anime based fighting games (ick), as well as games
that just completely suck. TFG mostly showcases fighting games that have
a lot of artwork and history behind them. As you can see, lesser known
games with lesser known characters have very little artwork, and even if I do
find artwork for those games it'll probably be low quality. I find it almost pointless to put up a character
page with just text or 1 to 2 pieces of lame artwork.

This site has become an instant
fave! Your own descriptions of the
characters are entertaining.
Please keep it up as there
are HARDLY any good sites on fighting characters.
Thanks, I've hadn't read that
much since high school.

those idiots. . .
I read your review on Mortal
Kombat Armageddon, and I was not surprise. But, I should be, because
unlike those idiots from GamePro, IGN.com, and all these video game critics,
you tell the truth. Though I've never played MKA, I've already got
the idea that this Mortal Kombat game sucks.
Ed Boon need to go back to
teaming up with John Tobias because he is fucking up! Don't get me
wrong, I love Mortal Kombat since when it was first came out. The
fighters, the fatalities, and the F.T.W. style the uppercuts are the reason
why play MK Games (except Special Forces and Trilogy).
But when John Tobias left
Midway leaving Ed Boon, everything I love about MK was gone. The
engine used for Deadly Alliance, Deception, and Armageddon is the reason
why I stop playing MK all together. Unlike the earlier games, they
don't go play High Punch, Low Punch, High Kick, Low Kick, they go by Attack
1, 2, 3, 4. Plus each character got 2-3 different fighting styles
which are as confusing as knowing what button to push. Last, what
the hell was Ed Boon thinking having these stupid ass mini-games and Konquest
Now they making a MK game
for the PlayStation 3 and xbox 360. Can't you believe that shit?!
I don't know why Ed Boon and Midway keeping making these MK when they can't
go back to it's roots? They need to accept the fact that no one plays
them any more, even when they change up everything. Mortal Kombat
replies: I wouldn't say "no one" plays them anymore, although I'd like
to think so for their own sake... I'd go as far to say that Mortal Kombat
(as of late) actually gives fighting games a bad name. In all honesty,
anyone who actually plays MK: Armageddon or Deception or Deadly Alliance,
and thinks that it's a "decent" fighting game is seriously DEE DEE DEE.
Kombat fans... LoL. Okay, don't get me completely wrong, the older Mortal
Kombats are still favorites of mine (like MK2 or MK3) for the characters
AND the gameplay. But like you said, when Tobias left Midway (not exactly
sure when that was but I think I can tell.. lol) all the heart and the
design that went into the game just got scrambled. Just watch any of the
documentaries from the bonus disk on Armageddon... ohh wait, you didn't
buy it (don't bother.. lol). Anyway, the general feeling you get when you
listen to them explain how they made the game, is that they just threw
stuff together spontaneously because they found it funny at the time, and
in certain cases they even admit it looked silly afterwards. And I just
found out Ed Boon named Sonya and Tanya after his two sisters...

nuts. . .
Hey there Frank!
Just read up
your Armageddon review... I've been a long time loyal fan to
Mortal Kombat and ever since
Deadly Alliance I started losing faith more and
more... Deception at least
brought something new with characters and
character designs yet this
game was nothing but a rushed pile of shit. All I
have to say to your review
is, you fucking kick ass. This is the kind of
review from a Fighting Game
god I've been waiting for to prove to the rest
of the MK fanboys how much
this MK sucked. I'm actually a staff member at
Daves Mortal Kombat (one
of the biggest MK sites out there) and I had a
whole 4 page thread going
on with me arguing with everyone else about how
Armageddon licked donkey
nuts. You just proved me right.... Because other
than some opinions on characters,
Yagami is never wrong.
Keep up the good work man,
I fucking love the site!
-Boriz Safi (BorixXx)
P.S: Ryu Hayabusa really IS
the coolest ninja ever made :P, not because of
DOA, but because of Ninja
replies: It has been said, I'm a fighting game GOD!!!!
Mwahahaaa!!!! Yeah, MK: Armageddon is terrible. Nuff said.
~ TFG Webmaster
hey I must admit: that review
you gave mk:armageddon was THE FUNNIEST f*****G THING I'VE READ ALL DAY!!
PERHAPS EVEN THE MOST FUNNIEST THING I'VE EVER READ!!!
" I laughed so hard I thought I was gonna die!! yeah I think they
really fucked up this time. But anyway, your reviews are always so detailed
so it goes to show that games aren't really for kids. in truth I grew up
playing fighting games,starting at the tender age of 3 (no joke) mainly
the entire street fighter series. in fact Capcom's work of arts and details
gave me motivation to become a martial artist . I even make a few mangas
based off of fighting characters to keep myself occupied. that's all I
wanted to say. thank you for creating such a badass site!!
* i have 3 questions
1. Am I the only one who thinks
that people are fucking whining too much about the fact that Ryu throws hadou-kens?? god get a fucking manual and read it you jackasses!! it's
not Capcom's fault you can't play!! ...freakin' button mashers.....
2. what kind of fighting style
do you study????
3. if there's a chance could
I help write reviews on fighting games as well??
replies: Fighting games are not for kids... Fighting games are a science,
a sport, a lifestyle. Hell, anything is a lifestyle nowadays. The way I
see it, when you can relax, and do something that stimulates your mind,
practice something you can get better at (to possibly win money or respect from other people like you), it's worth it to play fighting games (or other
genres of games).
I'm glad you also enjoyed my review of
MK: Armageddon. Onto your questions.
people cry when they can't dodge or parry fireballs. It's not that
hard!!!! Freakin' button mashers is right... but there will always be button
mashers. That's why in a "good" fighting game, skilled players can completely
destroy AND humiliate button mashers. One of my all time favorite
things to do.
and TaeKwonDo. (NOT the style of Hapkido that Scorpion does)...
He wouldn't know Hapkido if it dropkicked him in the face. Another reason
why Mortal Kombat sucks these days, INACCURATE fighting styles!!! Tisk tisk.
flattered by your enthusiasm but... No. Unless I put up the option for
readers to give their own reviews, but I have no plans on doing that right

Unplayable Game. . .
Thank you for giving the
new Mortal Kombat, the poor rating it deserves. Mortal Kombat is a series
that should have died a very long time ago.
When Mortal Kombat Deadly
Alliance first came out, I actually bothered to rent it. At first I didnt
know who to play as because all of the character designs SUCK. (Always
have; Always will.) I eventually chose Mavado, Kung Lao, and Johnny Cage.
I chose Mavado and Johnny because of their weapons, and Kung Lao because
he was supposed to using Praying Mantis Kung Fu. Words cannot express how
disappointed I was. Mavado's Hookswords techniques were barely passable,
as were Johnny Cage's Nunchaku techniques. Those, I could stand, but I
was horrified at what they did to the Mantis. ( Since I practice Praying
Mantis Kung Fu myself.) I returned the piece of crap to the store almost
immediately afterwards. When MK Deception came out, I rented that too,
to see if they had improved on it at all. I wasn't surprised to find out
that they hadn't. I played it for under ten minutes before I returned it.
I won't even begin to share my experience with the newest one.
Sorry for the long story.
I just hate the MK series that much. I pray that, as you said, this is
the last game in this horrible series. Thank you again, for giving an unplayable
game the score it deserves.
up". . .
First off, let me start by saying I really enjoy your site. It's a good
for fighting game related artwork and reviews, and generally I
my visits there. However, I'm a little irked by part of your Mortal
Armageddon review. And trust me, it's not that you said the game
I could have told you that just because it's Mortal Kombat.
I really wish you'd used a different phrase than "gayed up Mortal
to express dissatisfaction with the game. Being gay myself, it gets
old, very fast, to continually see that word used as a synonym for bad,
or stupid. Quite frankly, it's offensive.
you probably don't care, but if I'm going to be offended by
in one of your reviews, I'd rather it be because I disagree with
review itself, not because you indirectly called me and everyone like me
you for your time and attention.
replies: I apologize for offending you or anyone else who is actually
gay. No, I don't have a problem with gay people... but by force of habit,
sometimes I slip and tend to use the word GAY to describe something that
like Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Thanks for visiting and please don't take
