    Fighting games, everyone has played them, and very few don't mash in them.

    2.5D fighting games:


    If you clicked this thread you probably know about this franchise
    Following the successes of SF4, SSF4, and AE, capcom has made a new revision which comes in the form of an update, changing most of the game, called AE 2012: Hakan is actually not shit anymore edition.



    It's mahvel babeh!
    A new version of capcom and marvels cross franchise game, Marvel vs Capcom, which came under fire for releasing a new full game a year after mahvel 3 instead of a dlc, everyone still picks at least one from the trenchcoat mafia(Wesker Dante Vergil) and the darkstalkers characters are still shit except morrigan

    Street Fighter x Tekken


    Street Fighter x Tekken and its sister game Tekken x Street Fighter are a pair of games being developed by Capcom and Namco respectively, bringing two of the biggest fighting game franchises together for the very first time. Capcom's game will be more based on the Street Fighter engine, with Tekken mechanics like Special Punches being converted into a more SF-compatible format. The same is true for Namco's version, with Street Fighter characters presumably being adapted into Tekken mechanics. There has been much less information about the latter game than the former, however.


    2D fighting games:

    Blazblue


    Blazblue has been a spiritual successor to the popular Guilty Gear franchise, which they lost the rights to. This isn't that popular in America but it is pretty popular in Asia and Europe(Which is odd since Europe mainly plays 3d fighting games)

    Melty Bread/Blood


    A not so known outside of japan franchise, features three styles of play per character, making them play vastly different(A zoning character can suddenly become a rushdown, etc) and the way you get meter also changes depending on the moon, some of them being much alike how other franchises do their meter building(Crescent is blazblue like if I remember right), This is pretty much the only fighting game worth playing on pc nowadays, since the PC version of SSF4 AE is still not 2012 and probably won't be for a good while. Only way to legally get this is to buy a bundle with this games anime, which costs like $130.
    And yes, he has a move that summons a deer.

    Street Fighter: Third strike


    Hailed as the best street fighter game by many, this game is what pretty much shot the fighting game scene into the tournament scene. It has recently been re-released on consoles with online support, not much to say about this, it's just that good.

    3D fighting games:

    Tekken


    Tekken isn't really that popular in America, no idea about Japan, but in Europe it is possibly the most played fighting game outside of soul calibur, it features destructible terrain, allowing you to for example knock someone out of a window, then jump after them to fight further down.

    Soul Calibur


    Probably the most popular 3D fighter in America, tied with tekken in Europe and pretty popular in japan, it features destructible armor, custom characters, a lot of guest characters(Ranging from anywhere from darth vader, to Ezio Auditore, and even the games producer) This game features mostly weapon combat rather than hand to hand combat, and features ring outs that are instant KO's.

    Catherine


    This isn't so much a fighting game, but a game people sometimes play at fighting game tournaments for shits and giggles

    Popular fighting game streams(Toss me a PM if I missed any)
    The king of streaming: http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky
    EG Floe, dansgame: http://twitch.tv/eg_floe
    8wayrun: http://twitch.tv/8wayrun
    Fingercramp Jago: http://twitch.tv/fingercramp


    If you want any games added to the OP just pm me with the info about it, I don't really want to write about games I don't really know about(Haven't played anything of KoF but KoF98, and never played DoA for example)
    And if you have any good footage for tekken and soul calibur just toss me a pm too, I don't follow the tournaments of those that much.

    I love fighting games. Started to play Virtua Fighter 5 again today, although I still prefer VF4 Evolution or whatever it was called.

    Always been a Tekken kid. Mostly 3,4,5 and Tag.

    Also "Throwing your enemy through a wall" or whatever was first featured in Dead or Alive AFAIK.

    i just read what i think may be one of the worst reviews for a fighting game in my life

    http://www.quartertothree.com/fp/201...soulcalibur-v/

    The new character customization is either much better or much worse, depending on what you're looking for in character customization. If you want to put stickers on your cape or make a short Asteroth, Soulcalibur V is the game for you. But if you want Soulcalibur IV's indepth unlockable stat-based equipment RPG, well, Soulcalibur IV is the game for you. Because Soulcalibur V has none of that. What a disappointing step backwards.
    who fucking complains about lack of rpg elements in a fighter

    what i don't like is that they made SC V into a more serious and competitive game (which is ok i guess) but they p. much threw out a lot of modes like team battle mode and survival mode

    why

    It's only one character, it's not really new, I mean it was console exclusives last game.


    Also good job on arturo and spore not noticing they weren't on AE 2012 for an entire match

    What? Not Dampierre! He was my favorite in Broken Destiny! And it's the only Soul Calibur game I own!

    Now that you mention it, it does play similar to MvC. I feel like a moron for not realizing that earlier.

    skullgirls isn't an mvc clone because it has six buttons, custom assists and anti-infinite stuff!   because they cant just punch out the infinite   

    Honestly, I just want it because it's coming for PC and that SFxT looks to be casual babby tier stuff right now.

    Yeah, you'd have to be legally retarded to think it's an mvc clone, it reminds me more of.. Gah what was that other fighting game where you could choose one or two characters, I think capcom made it.

    And PC needs more fighting games, nowadays we only have melty blood, and ggpo.

    The Capcom vs SNK series came to mind. You can pick the number of characters you want.

    taking mechanics from one of the best fighting games ever released isn't cloning it you dolt. i understand people disliking the art style because that is subjective but almost every video and hands-on impression has been overwhelmingly positive.

    Street Fighter: Third strike


    Hailed as the best street fighter game by many, this game is what pretty much shot the fighting game scene into the tournament scene. It has recently been re-released on consoles with online support, not much to say about this, it's just that good.
    lol not at all. many people disliked it on release (lack of established cast, universal option select in parrying). in general SFII Super Turbo is seen as the best and most competitive street fighter game.

    No King of Fighters mention? Sad day. KoF has to be one of my favorite series in terms of the actual fighting aspect. If I want story in a fighting game, I play BlazBlue.

    Although I do think KoF 13 is missing quite a few characters that I enjoyed from previous titles, it is quite fun. Especially playing as the Black alternate skin for Terry.

    It's not cheap, it's broken retarded. The AI in the first 5 games is literally a table of instant attack responses to inputs from the user, with standardized variable resposnse and built in delay-by-difficulty. Worst AI ever.

    Maybe you missed the part of the title that says "fighting games"?

    Any opinion that isn't parroted verbatim from someone in Akihabara or Van Nuys/San Diego is automatically the devil.

    can't understand why everybody seems to bandwagon on the sf x tekken hate train

    how do you know it's bad if you haven't even played it yet

    it looks like a legit fun game to play and it's introducing lots of new and innovative things to a genre that is often static and doesn't change much (heroes vs heralds mode in umvc3 comes to mind if you want another example)

    i get the feeling that most fighting game fans have a hard time embracing change
