Been a while Bio, nice to see you around. Sorry I've been away online. We need to have our own EVO GF soon again. My Ryo vs. your EX Kyo (one of us will bring a good Mai too).

Definitely keen to do that.

Shall be good to pit some new/old chrs against each other. I have at least one you may not be expecting that I'd started using (after a long break) against another friend of ours a few wks before evo ;)

I am only worried that the new KoF would be in 3d or 2.5d.

I prefer old school sprites but 2.5d is more acceptable than a 3d game.

I'm on the fence about the graphics for the new one....2.5d would be nice,but I rather have the current sprites,they are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy too good to go away from it.

I don't care too much about how it looks, I'm more concerned about the gameplay.

Plus, I don't think SNKP would throw away those 2D sprites they worked so hard and intensively on to only work with 3D exclusively from this point on. They always re-used sprites over and over (with slight touch-ups) back in the day, so hopefully they will continue that.

2.5D is exciting to me.  It cuts costs and development time and allows for a deep level of graphical depth and fidelity.  Don't get me wrong though, I'm a huge fan of 2D art and sprite work.  I think they'll still keep those resources for other things, too.
Kick, punch, it's all in the method. Not mother approved but totally kid tested.

I agree.
For the love of god, it needs to stick to classic fighting game roots! 2D please!

I don't mean to offend anyone but street fighter 4 looks so ugly in 3D, I'm sorry!

Looking at all the corners they had to cut to get XIII done in a reasonable time frame (bunch of normals missing, recycled frames of animation for a lot of characters, characters who are substantial sprite clones), I'm fine with them moving to a 2.5D game if it means a shorter dev cycle. It's already been proven many times over that you can use 3D models to mimic 2D sprites with the right techniques.

They already have rigged 3D models with animations etc for all the existing characters anyway since it's part of their sprite creation process for XII and XIII.

Things have been kinda quiet in the KOF world lately. Anyone have anything new to share?

Actually on the topic of the resurgence of KOF post-Evo, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar players have been continuing a new level of commitment to the game and we're holding monthlies out here. There's been talk of a quarterly for larger attendances and we've had Cafe Id come out to Dubai before so we're hoping for some good things to happen for our scene. We've got some good talent out here and we're working on growing and leveling up!

That's excellent.

Great to hear that the scene is heating up.

I'm seeing the same out here in Japan based on commentary from players who broadcast. Wondering if there'll be even more momentum once/if/when XIII is up and running on steam with good netcode.

If it comes with good Netcode, I'll triple dip.  Not practicing as much as I should, but I can still roll around with the old man.

Want a damn Vita version though.  Playing this in bed?  Now that's the life.

Yeah, I want it on the vita as well.  They should at the very least port the iphone version over to vita.  That mobile version is actually pretty decent!

Nah has to be the full game with better netcode.  I hear that the iOS version has better nutcode then the console versions.  Probably SNK spite.

The funny thing is that SNKp Ports a lot of their stuff to android, yet Vita has Playstation Mobile which is a very quick and easy port from Android to PSMobile architecture.  If they actually ported their stuff to Playstation Mobile, I'd actually buy it because it'd finally be fucking playable.
