Osirun keeps the KOF topic going, this time with a conversation with DeadlyRaveNeo. DeadlyRaveNeo discusses his history as a player, why SNK > Capcom fighters, SNK and Old School history and a live GGPO KOF2k2 match!
At this time, the Power Up podcast is THE podcast for KOF fans. So far, Osirun has interviewed Webster, Syxx, Desmond DELAGHETTO, me and has an upcoming interview with Dark Geese. If you’re interested in being involved in the conversation, contact Osirun via PM at SRK.
The recently announced UK 2K2UM tournament and XIII preview event has been announced as part of London Anime Con’s Ultimate Clash Xtreme. Both events will take place on Feb. 6th. The venue will be open until midnight. The 2K2UM tournament is limited to the first 50 players. Bata vs Salim will play first-to-ten to determine who’s the best player and will be available for money matches. KoF XIII will be set to free play with a win cap of 3. There will be a beginner’s KoF XIII tournament as well, which will only be open to players who have not played KoF before. More information is available at Orochinagi.
No information on streaming yet.
Possibly the biggest Midwest tourney is coming up soon and it happens to also be running KOF 2002UM (360) this time around, so if you have the time hit up some friends and road trip over to Chi-Town and show them what you’re made of! If you can, please bring a TV or console.
Thanks to Elven Shadow for making the OG thread on SRK and syxx for reposting the information on DC.
SNKPlaymore has officially released The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match on XBox LIVE Arcade today. This is the first time this game has officially been released in the U.S. and the only way to play the game online. It’s also the best KoF to play in preparation for the release of King of Fighters XIII.
King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match will be released on Nov. 3 on via Xbox LIVE Arcade. Orochinagi is heading up an effort to get it released on the PSN as well. Go over to Orochinagi.com and vote in their poll. The poll is just under the Skystage Flash game.
2K2UM is very important to the King of Fighters community. It’s THE game to play in preparation for XIII and is a classic in the series. As such, it’s important to have the game available to as many players as possible.
Desmond and his group are holding another live streaming event. This time they are planning to play KOFXII, 98UM, 2002UM, and KOFXI. The stream is available at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/delabrothel-casuals. We will also have the stream on this page. The stream starts at 6PM Central.
