Fighters are obviously an extremely competitive genre, much like FPS'. However, unlike FPS games the competitive scene for fighters is largely geared towards consoles, which I see as a problem. With consoles, you're basically working with outdated technology and more importantly you're limited to 60fps and essentially 60hz which is terrible for competitive gaming and any sort of fast paced gameplay seen in fighters.

So I'm wondering if you think fighters will ever evolve to PC and be built specifically for the PC, instead of being ported over. Whereas they can push the games even further in terms of technology and features and not be limited by technological restrictions with consoles.

I also see PC as a way to bring the entire online community together instead of being split between two different consoles. Personally I don't really see why the demand for fighters on PC hasn't been bigger than what it is, for better gaming. Thoughts?

New to fighting games and KOF, so if anyone wants some practice games my GT is TactixKill


I'm usually on somewhere between 6-10pm in spurts.

I don't have any complaints anymore really. I've been hosting and entering practice mode while waiting, setting a 3 bar connection requirement. With that, I usually get a match within 5 minutes now if not instantly. Haven't had any lag issues anymore either. I'm still getting my ass kicked though, lol, once I solve that problem I'll be good to go.

Great tips thanks, I adjusted my buttons and performing a buffer helped me pull off the drive cancel. Never knew you could do that, thanks. Still feels a little unnatural, but I'm sure with more practice it'll eventually become 2nd nature. Love this game :)

I'm having a tough time cancelling from one special into another, in fact I haven't gotten past this part of the tutorial yet. I'm not exactly sure when I should execute the 2nd special, but there doesn't seem to be much of a window to begin with. Are most players using standard controllers with this game (360)? Seems hard to pull off long strings quickly, but that is probably just my inexperience. Smoothly transitioning into HD is tough as well and I usually have to reposition my hand to get both buttons. I know that's not needed for the cancel used in the tutorial though.

Anyway, during the tutorial there's a "d" icon between the first special and into the 2nd, but I'm not sure what that signifies. No manual. Any tips on performing cancels would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks guys. Even when setting the connection quality, I'm still not having any luck in finding a lag-free game. I still need some more practice first anyway. Does anyone know if there's a PDF version of the manual online? I purchased the game through XBL, so I don't have a manual and would would like to read through some of the basics. I tried searching google and and didn't find anything.

This last question may be a bit out of place, I'm wondering though if there are any similar fighters worth recommending? While I learn KOF, I'd like to have another game to play with an active online community and solid netcode. Anything comparable to KOF? I currently have P4A and these are the first two fighters I've bought in a good 5+ years, but they've really rekindled my interest in the genre. With that said, I haven't been following the genre and I don't know what other fighters offer the same sort of depth in terms of fighting mechanics and gameplay.. thx.

Is the online dead for this game already? After buying p4a and enjoying that, I decided to give kof 13 a go, but haven't seen much activity online. What happened to the "cult" following? :)

The one game I was in seemed to lag pretty bad, was this on my end, or poor net code?

I guess if it isn't easy to jump in games I'd look for something else. Especially if there are no new players to compete with, being that I'm not experienced in fighters in general, so there's not much of a point in me going against vets.

Are there other comparable games with better online? Gameplay wise is something like kof more skill based than mk for example? If so what else should I look for to scratch the itch, or maybe there are noobs out there I can practice with on kof....
