But Clark and Ralf were clearly modeled after Schwarzenegger:

I was under the impression (by hearsay) that Clark was commando Schwarzenegger, and Ralf was Rambo Stallone.

A whole lot of KoF charas are stand ins for characters from movies and games.
KoF XIII... Needs more Angel, Vanessa and Blue Mary! ^^

Well, I guess we all agree that we don't want KoF turning into a loli-fighter. On the other hand, if we're a bit realistic, the whole shift to HD(ish) graphics was bound to bring huge changes along. All of the older games had hand drawn sprites. Nowadays, they roto-scan 3d models. That, in itself, means you have a stiffer frame to work on. It also means you get more consistent and professional results. If they went back to drawing stuff completely by hand now, you'd be shocked by the lack of depth that the sprites would have.

On the topic of how muscular/kawaii some sprites turned out to be, I think it's just a broader spectrum than before. Women go from Elisabeth serious to Yuri genki-girl; the guys go from Andy understated to Clark over-the-top. I don't think it had anything to do with appeasing anyone, it's just cooler to have variety. I'm not thrilled about all of them(still don't like Maxima), but I think it's far above standard and likely to improve. It IS their first complete game on this engine and they barely made it. If anyone cares to show me a better 2d game, I'm willing to take a look, but I think that'll just be KoF XIV. Oh, and it's been 2.5 D since they did UMs with 3d backgrounds.

To those who insist on waxing lyrical about how everything was better back then: "C'mon, get serious."

Yeah well, ofcourse  the new sprites are much better than the old ones and the game is smoother but I was just stating my opinion (maybe for future references :P) on the looks of some of the characters. With their capabilities I think they did a great job with this game.


back in my day we didn't have players guides and ign telling us how to do stuff we did everything ourselves gamers today are so shameful

True and not so true; back in the day when we had arcades (well I dont know about you) we learned from each other friends and opponents and yeah we try to innovate.

That's not true at all. You never heard of something called "Fighters Edge" by Gamepro?

So we agree? I guess we disagree on which characters look less than ideal, we can carry on bitchfighting about those hehe. :P

We learned from each other, kicked each otherīs ass, went to the pub together, went back to the arcade and did it some more. And not once did anyone bitch about lag XD

I remember back in the arcade days of KOF 96 I found a page on the web that it had a cheat on how to unlock super terry and super kyo lol. It was saying that you needed to do 10 times diagonal up-left and down right on their image on the selection screen and press to battons.. It was so hard to do that and I spent money and days till I realized that I was trolled :( Funny days. I'd give anything to live in the 90s for ever!

Eripio69 lolol that was bauss
Dat Shingo!!! hahahahahahaah
