  Cyber Lip - Game of the Week

Our Game of the Week starting today is what some consider to be a classic title.




Back in 1990 it was definitely an impressive looking game and the large amount of speech was quite surprising at the time. I do know of a few people that consider it a classic, but I must admit to not being one of them. However I am going to give it a another try during the course of the week, so come and join us in doing the same, then post your thoughts in the Cyber Lip forum thread! We also have a high score challenge going on right now so if you think you can set a good score in Cyber Lip, take a look at our High Score Challenge Forum!

  Mai Shiranui Fan Service Figurine

It's a bit of a slow news time right now, so I figured I'd post about this great looking figure I saw while looking at Kotaku earlier. It's based on the version of Mai Shiranui in KOF Maximum Impact:




Definitely fan service at its best! (or worst depending on your view) The bad news is that the cost of having this piece of art adorn your shelf is 16,590 yen, or approximately $178 according to XE.com. Even if I was still buying any kind of models (and I don't anymore as I really don't have the space for 'em), I don't think I would want to blast that much cash on it, no matter how well.... proportioned! ;)

  Chat Meet

We'll be holding a chat meet this coming Sunday (December 7th). I'll be aiming to be in chat from about 6pm (UK time) onwards, and hope to see some of you in there! I'll be interested if anyone is in the mood to play some online games, either via GGPO (or similar), or perhaps some Xbox Live games like Samurai Shodown II, SF2HD. I'm also up for some Gears of War 2 or Halo 3 if other people are, so hopefully we can get a party together!


If you'd like to suggest any games to play etc, head over to the forum thread. Usually the chat goes on for a few hours so it will be around mid day/early to mid afternoon for most US people.

  The KOF Movie Will... SUCK!

Right from the moment a live action KOF movie was announced, the only thing I could really think of to say was "Why God why???". Video game movies are almost always horrendous (with a few noteable exceptions), so there was no real reason to think this would be any different. After hearing a few details though, I did start get at least some hope for it. It is being directed by Gordon Chan, and considering he was at the helm of one of my all time favourite movies, Fist of Legend (Jet Li), it did add a small hint of respectabilty to the proceedings.




However, now for the bad part. Here's a snippet of the supposed storyline:


"It also looks like the King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world."


What the...? I wouldn't expect the film to be perfect, but that just sounds crazy. Anyways, according to Movieset.com, the movie has begun filming in Vancouver, Cannada on the 27th of November. It's set for a 2010 release, so we've over a year to wait to see if it turns out as bad as it sounds... I will, as always, try to keep an open mind... but to be blunt, until I see otherwise I am going to call bulls**t on this one! :)

  KOF 2002 UM Screens

Japanese website Gpara has some new screenshots of The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match! They show off many of the new backgrounds, amongst other things.




I'm really looking forward to this one. Despite all the amazing screenshots and videos of KOF XII (see earlier news posts), it is still some way away, so I'm trying to take my mind off it a little bit. KOF 2002 UM should be a pretty good way to do that. SNK have confirmed its Japanese PS2 release on February the 26th 2009, so it's not all that far away. Definitely one I will be picking up! I'd still love to see it released on PSN/Live Arcade though... imagine how great that could be if they also used the same GGPO netcode as Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD?

  KOF XII Videos

Cyberfanatix have posted some very nice videos of KOF XII from the recent event in Japan. They show lots of footage of all the different characters in exhibition matches, as well as a video explaining the critical counter system. Good quality and a must see!





Many thanks to Cyberfanatix for posting them (not sure who the original author was). You can see all the videos in their youtube channel!

  Game of the Week - Crossed Swords

This week we go back in time to 1991 to reminisce about a fairly unique game on the Neo Geo:



While there was a sequel made for the Neo Geo CD, there isn't really anything else quite like this third person beat 'em up on our beloved console. It's a very dated game but if you have never tried it out it is worth a look. Head on over to our GotW thread to check out various media and discuss the game with us!


As a side note we won't have a high score challenge on this game as it doesn't actually have high scores! We have other challenges running though so if you are in the mood for challenging other members here take a look at the High Score Challenge forum, ran by priest and the eccentric cat!

The Neo Geo is 100% the best 16 bit system! Just felt the need to reaffirm my love for the system.
