Thats too bad. I don't have the funds to go myself, since I am all ready invested into CEO 2011. I hope people go and record the matches that go on, it will be a great bit of information and fun to see!

At this point, why not just do digital releases? I dunno about the other games, I'd buy them but I'd love to have Wild Ambition with online play.

Any day. Every day. Yeah, I said it. SO WHAT, NOCTURNAL? Bring it on come on

Home Port Wish List:

-Turn into Real Bout 3 instead of being KoF XIII lawl

-Completely balanced out with no annoying glitches or tons of infinites. At least make the infinites hard enough to where those players need to work hard to make them happen.

-Bring in characters that can actually help add balance to the game, as opposed to just tossing in fan favourites and seeing how it goes. SNKP needs to make sure they don't add in something like the old Vanilla Fei-Long infinite

-MARKETING MARKETING MARKETING! Pour money into marketing or hire someone whose shown positive results with marketing to do it. Make some cheesey commercial for America with two dudes fighting (Preferably Americans or Ninjas) and make everyone notice KoF.

-If GGPO is not possible, do what you can with the engine to try and get it as close to even SSFIV as you can. At least let it be playable for us, Japan's internet is faster than America's and we're way more spread out than Japan is. East to West coast is a loooong ways comparatively.

-Release alternate costume packs as DLC as well as pay attention and release balance patches as needed, as well as new music tracks and characters.

Thats about it, unfortunately its falling on deaf ears. SNKP needs a community manager whose familiar with the competitive scene and can speak for us, AND knows how to market.

I've always found its best to stick with who you like, not who "wins the most". Tiers can change fast, and sometimes the opinions of Certain top players ends up getting proven wrong real quick, or even after a few years. Whose to say someone doesn't discover something about Terry that makes him win? Or another character? And if not, you have on advantage: less people using him = less people know how to fight against him.

It doesn't surprise me that Mexico and China are not taking to XIII as well. Current information tells me its had lots of bugs and glitches, so that might be it. For tournament players, 02UM is still close to what they know so there's less room for error. The USA is more interested in flash, and I dunno how to explain why its taking off decently in Japanese arcades, but a console release is necessary with good netcode for it to work here. But I dunno, the look and style of the game is not something overly appealing to Americans really. I don't think even with strong netcode or balanced gameplay that would change things. Proper marketing could do it, but SNKP can't afford the marketing necessary to do it. Ignition cannot either (if they even wanna continue doing business with SNKP). A juggernaut company like EA would be able to market it and make it sell well for sure, but its doubtful SNKP would approach an American producer to do so, and even more doubtful they'd agree to it. Really, sad but true, hand-drawn 2D sprites are going the way of the Dodo and have been for quite some time. They're gonna need to mimic the style of SSFIV or MvC3 to really make a game succeed, and outsourcing to some company that doesn't know a thing (Guys behind Sen) isn't an answer. They also need to not worry about marketing towards current SNK tournament players or fanboys and focus on drawing in people (like what SSFIV did) and the tournament players will naturally follow along anyway if it gets enough attention. I also would rather see them revive some older IPs and not care so heavily about KoF...but thats a story for another thread.

tl;dr - SNKP put everything into something that was mostly a waste of time and should focus on a 3D game with a 2D plane, and probably use heavy marketing in the West to increase sales as well as strong netcode. Not that I won't buy whatever they come out with anyway, and I love 2D sprites more...just see them dying out. This article kinda sums up why:

XIII being played at Planet Zero's tournament in TX is very good indeed. And as far as I recall, SNKP isn't shutting down the game department and that rumor was put to rest.

Bun Bo Ryu Do: Welcome to DC! Also: Yeti those layout can be killer but the one on the SS cabinet is perfect for RB2 since you only need three buttons for attacks, and the fourth one on the bottom is best for Line swtiching.

Welcome to Dreamcancel! I look forward to Chinese competition, I know China doesn't get to come compete world-wide very often.

Its very possible, though the more likely option is that its merely going to come to the NeoGeo Station soon. A new Fatal Fury Special would be quite interesting to say the least.

I'm liking the way this thread is turning out. So far so good, and I'm shocked that RB2 is keeping up with KoF 98 and 02 lol but of course, not many have voted. Kinda getting an idea of where people stand, but I'm also getting the feeling the thirty players we have registered on the database aren't around lately. Maybe its MvC3? lol

Thats good, glad to hear it. I wanna determine where everyone stands on this so we can try and cater more events towards what people want. (Of course, I'm forcing RB2 on all of you lawl)

This poll is to determine what people are feeling right now. What do you wanna play? What games never get old to you? What are you willing to play online and have fun with? For the Other categories, please post the name of the title(s) you feel like playing the most. You can change your vote, as well as vote for multiple games. Please remember, this is for the sake of online play and to determine where people stand with what games and what everyone feels like playing that isn't boring to them in terms of casual or competitive online play.
