It never feels right in 3D. One of the few beat-'em-up games in 3D I liked was Ninja Gaiden.

I think Devil May Cry is pretty awesome (especially 3 in hard mode). I just wish they would have more interesting levels and enemy design. Bayonetta looks like a fantastic successor. Still would love a BattleToads/Double Dragon 2 and a TMNT 5.

As for Fighters, there are a few on the VC, but if you really want a fighter you need to get an Xbox. You can get SFII: Remix, Mark of the Wolves (just bought it, awesome), Blazblue is coming out, and you can still get The Street Fighter Anniversary Collection for Third Strike (still amazing).

I actually recommend against SFIV. It's a disappointing remake of SSFIIT, made even more unnecessary from the release of the superior SFII: remix. Some might say that it is new, but the new characters are all bad (except Abel who has the makings of a good character (I'm talking about character design, not gameplay), the Focus Attack is an interesting idea that is ultimately useless (all upgraded defense systems seem to go this way, though), and the Ultra is terrible (10 Seconds to see a not all that cool Super move, EVERY MATCH! Come on). It's not terrible, just not the real Street Fighter IV.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger

Anyone getting this game? Heard great things about it.

Mockery you play castle crashers online ever?

Phoenix Gamma Jun 30th, 2009 03:22 PM

I'm waiting for my copy of BlazBlue to come in. I wanted the art book. But it's only about an hour away right now, so maybe I'll get to play it today?

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 30th, 2009 04:02 PM

I didn't think BLAZBLUE came out till the 30th.....then I looked at the calender :eek. I thought today was only the 23rd. Heck yeah paydaytoday.

BlazBlue's netcode is probably the best in any fighting game released so far. The opening animations might lag since synchronizing takes a few seconds (around 10), but as soon as the match starts, it's a perfect framerate, and the game recognizes all of your button presses, as if you were playing offline.

Over 100 matches so far, and not a single one of them had any kind of lag or weird teleporting/sliding. Excellent.

Yeah, I really miss the beat em up games too. Specially the Konami arcade games. I loved 2D fighting games in High School, but have a hard time playing them now. Probably the lack of practice.
Oddly enough, I was more of a SF2 guy then and now I prefer 2D Mortal Kombat games.
