View Full Version : The Official 2d Fighters Appreciation Thread

Thats right people this is a thread for those that loved games like Street fighter 2, Marvel vs Capcom, King of Fighters etc...
What are peoples opinions and what were their favourate characters, plus where you more an arcade person or console man when it came to these fighters?

07-12-2006, 06:31 PM
oh I love Samurai Shodown, I usually play with Jubei or the red samurai forgot his name. Love that game. And I love to play it on console more than arcade. Its not that there were alot of arcades here in Holland.

2D beat 'em ups are still the greatest. I've not had the chance to play the arcades in a long time, it's all one armed bandits in the arcades around here. Still, Killer Instinct, Samurai Showdown and Super Street Fighter 2 are among my favourite games ever

07-12-2006, 10:14 PM
I heard Guilty Gear XX is gonna be released on the PSP and DS?

07-12-2006, 11:53 PM

I also heard it's coming out on psp.
I've got Guilty gear Izuka on ps2, the game is great you can have 4 way fighting which is quite hectic if you know how to play, only problem though because of all the players you have to press R1 in order to turn in the opposite direction which can get very annoying, but on the plus side the game also includes a side scroller beat em up too.

07-12-2006, 11:55 PM
Samurai showdown is the shit, I don't know many people that like it but I think it's great, mad underated. Btw has anyone seen the samurai showdown anime?

07-13-2006, 12:09 AM
Guilty Gear Slash, I just bought from Japan. Its coming out sometime soon for PS2 later this year. It's Isuka without the four player action. Melty Blood React is coming to the PS2 in August.

In Chinatown, NYC we play Rumble Fish 2. That game is fucking crazy. If you have a good arcade emulator, pick up the first one. The second should be on rom soon.

07-13-2006, 12:13 AM
Whats melty blood react?

07-13-2006, 12:15 AM
It's this crazy fighting game, its based on a anime. You can get it on PC, maybe theres a rom for it. I dont know, I couldn't find a rom, so I borrowed my friend's and put it on my PC.

Do you think you could post any pics of it?

07-13-2006, 12:32 AM
- street fighter: Akuma, Ryu (usually evil if available), Sagat, Balrog

- King of Fighters: Iori, Terry Bogart

- Marvel vs Capcom:

From Marvel: Hulk, Sabretooth, Wolverine, Omega Red, Cable, Captain America, Thanos

From Capcom: Akuma, Ryu, Ken, Captain Commando, Jin, Stryder,

- Samurai Showdown: Ukyo, Genjuro, Haohmaru, Hanzo, Jubei, Basara

- Guilty Gear: Zato-1, Sol Badguy

- Darkstalkers: Demitri, Donovan, Morrigan, Sasquatch, Jedah, Bishamon

- Mortal Kombat: Scorpion, Kung Lao, Shang Tsung, Cyber Smoke, Sub Zero (unmasked)

Some good choices similar to my own except I would swap Ryu for Ken (Kens dragon punches where better.)

07-13-2006, 01:02 AM
Scorpion from mortal kombat, console was better i think.

07-13-2006, 01:17 AM
I was mostly a console man but I discovered most of my favourates in the arcade first.

Just watched the clips, those japanese sure come up with strange characters. It looks very similar to Guilty Gear, unfortunatly for me I know this is not gonna come out in the uk, 2d fighters are few and far between overhere I know that Samurai showdown 6 has just come out for ps2

07-22-2006, 01:24 AM
Ken is my favourate character on any version of Street Fighter because he has a better dragon punch that moves in close to opponents, only on Marvel vs Capcom I don't use him because they made him shit by removing said dragon punch and just making him weaker.

Who is your favourate character on Street fighter and why?

07-22-2006, 03:36 AM
CasaBlanca !!!

Ken was always my boy in SF, or Bison if I was feeling like playing badass. Neither of them ever for into my MvC teams though, Cammy was normally my base character from the SF series, teamed up with Wolverine, or Spiderman. But my preferred chick character was Morrigan - Speaking of which, Darkstalkers was a class set of games, anyone agree?

07-22-2006, 07:28 AM
Blanka was the name yea !

Casablanca a movie ?
hmm, ive never seen that movie !

Casablanca?! thats a fuckin movie!!!!!!!

u mean "Blanka"?

07-22-2006, 01:50 PM
I may be a film geek, but if you dont know casablanca, where the hell have you been under a rock. Gone with the wind is a movie too. If you are younger than 17 I can understand, they probably didnt mentioned the film in school yet. But now you know its a movie.

07-23-2006, 07:53 PM
Haha, I'm 15 years old and I know about that movie. But besides that I love
Makoto from street fighter third strike, people really underestimate me when
they see me (a guy) playing as a chick and a chick being his best and favorite
character to choose from. But I know some combos I learned from a pro
and I made my own and Im invincible with her.

03-10-2007, 03:27 PM
I remember playing this a lot when I was a kid, it never came out on the home consoles which really annoyed me as a kid, in fact looking back it still annoys me to this day.

Heres another game I loved as a kid, also never fucking released on the consoles.

03-11-2007, 05:04 AM
Yeah, I've got Marvel VS Capcom on the PS2 and it is one of my most played games, IMO it's a classic of 2D fighters.

03-11-2007, 01:25 PM
no love for double dragon??

Frontal Lobotomy
03-11-2007, 01:54 PM
^ Double Dragon was cool as. I never really liekd the 1 on 1 sub-game yo ucould play on it though, it made it feel too much like a clone of Golden Axe (or vise versa, I forget which came out first).
Oh Tauro, I got that AvP in my MAME collection, I used to have that Spiderman one but I think it gost lost somewhere. Good games though. A version of sorts for AvP came out on the SNES (Jap and US) but I played it on ROM and it really isn't anywhere near as good.

03-11-2007, 09:17 PM
^^I just wish I could own both those games, after all these years and I still think of them.

^^I just wish I could own both those games, after all these years and I still think of them.

There's a copy of AvP, and a few otehr favourites in there. Extract all files but the game ones themselves into the same folder (expecially the neo-geo one, as you need the bios files to run AvP, Samurai Showdown etc). The games themselves are fine in their archives and won't run unless they are as such. I couldn't find Spiderman for you, but I have some friends back home with pretty much the entire back-catalogue of arcade games, and will get it to you eventually.
Apologies to bloo in advance if I'm breaking rules by upping the link, I'll take it down if its a problem

*edit* This link should work.

Actually Taruo, you're wrong :)


Here's the ROM image

Download a SNES emulator and go nuts.

Don't say I never gave ya nothin :beer:

03-14-2007, 09:53 PM
^^Actually Bloo im right, the SNES game is not the same as the Capcom arcade version, it even says so on wikipedia.

Believe me Bloo. if this game had come out on the SNES or any other console for that matter I would not have missed it.

03-14-2007, 11:26 PM
But I know for a fact that it did come out on SNES. At least it did here in the states cause my buddy let me borrow it for a bit. Now of course it wasn't as deep as the arcade version but hey, most home versions weren't.

I'm sure I can get ahold of the original arcade ROM though, the one you're actually used to playing.

03-14-2007, 11:41 PM
Im not saying that an AVP game did not come out on the SNES because I know they came out on multiple formats (I have the game boy version) but the Capcom arcade game did not, along with the Spider-Man arcade I also posted.

On a side note, what am I supposed to do with the game file once it has been dl? because I opened it up and it just showed me different files but there was nothing showing how I could get a game started.

03-14-2007, 11:50 PM
Oh, you gotta download an Emulator first. Instead of explaining it all here. Give me till about 8AM (Eastern Standard Time) Once I get home I'm gonna start the ultimate emulation thread that'll explain my many years of knowledge as well as give us a base to trade ROMs.

If that don't get the Digi section shut down nothing will!

03-14-2007, 11:58 PM
Alright cool, but this is gonna be my last day at the corp for a while because on friday im leaving for the states and in not sure if im gonna have access to a computer, but when I come back I will check it out.

03-15-2007, 08:11 AM
^ Did you try the link I re-posted? It has the AvP you're looking for, and some other decent ones. The emulation software is in there (mame32 file) just extract that and the neogeo.zip file into the same folder, and slap the ROM files into the rom folder that should appear.

Last Blade 1+2 Anybody

05-18-2007, 08:35 PM
Last Blade series was sick, I remember playing in the arcade, my favourate character (forgot his name) was the kung fu guy who looked like Jet Li in the Once upon in china films.

11-22-2007, 09:26 PM
Hadn't played any in a while, but played 'Garou: Mark Of The Wolves' the other day (on MAME) and remembered why I loved them so much. Going off to Thailand soon, so gonna pick up copies of Last Blade 2, Garou, KOF2001, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike for my old Dreamcast while I'm there.

Already got KOF '98, Capcom vs SNK 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3 & Marvel vs Capcom 2, so should pretty much have the set! Got two Dreamcast arcade sticks too!

Gonna pick up 'Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core' for the Wii as well.

Does anyone know if they ever released any Samurai Shodown/Samurai Spirits games on Dreamcast?

Street Fighter Alpha 3

The King Of Fighters 2001

Last Blade 2

The King Of Fighters '98

Samurai Shodown V

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

Capcom vs SNK 2

Garou: Mark Of The Wolves (aka Fatal Fury 4)

And the new and rather beautiful 'Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core'

11-22-2007, 09:30 PM
Man I fucking love these games.

11-22-2007, 09:34 PM

Dug out my Dreamcast before coming to work and I can't find the fuckin scart cable.

I did mod a Neo-Geo joystick to work on my pc though, so can get the best out of my Neo-Geo emulator! anyone interested in how, I can tell you a really easy way to do it.

Garou, Alpha 3, KOF '98, SNK vs Capcom 2 & Last Blade 2 are personal favourites.

I got that AVP game you were talking about for MAME as well. Great fun with the Neo-Geo stick!

Was pleased to see this has arrived for the Wii:


11-22-2007, 10:19 PM
I got that AVP game you were talking about (earlier in this thread) for MAME as well. Great fun with the Neo-Geo stick!


Anyone remember Armored Warriors as well? That was another great Capcom scrolling beat em up, but this time with big upgradeable robots:


11-22-2007, 11:00 PM
Heres a sick Forum about 2d Fighters that im a Part of.


im a BIG fan of 2d fighters. I love my CvS2, SF3 Third Strike, any SF2 and SF Alpha 3. Not really much of an SNK head though.

11-22-2007, 11:02 PM
^^^ Have you played Last Blade 2 or Garou: Mark Of The Wolves?!?! Can't see how anyone into the games you listed wouldn't love them.

I can't wait to get SFIII: 3rd Strike for my Dreamcast though! I got Double Impact, but never got hold of 3rd Strike.

Anyone played Rage Of The Dragons? I had the rom and remember it being at least decent, but seem to have lost it!


11-23-2007, 10:23 AM
street fighter2, SFA3, SF3, MvC2 and CvS2 are the games i need to live with, and much love to all who love KEN <3

11-23-2007, 04:44 PM
Yo yu seen my sig right? Son im the don when it comes to this shit hahaha...
Any of ya'll actualy own a neogeo? cuz thats what 2d fighting is all about yo...
I got FatalFury,SS2,SS3,SS0special,Art of Fighting,Garou:MOTW,KOF2001,KOF2003 an Last Blade for neogeo...
@ Spinx: yo have yu played accent core yet? fucken great shit i tells ya...best GG so far(and ive played all of em)
Yo anyone who loves 2d fighters should check out Garou and Samurai Spirits 0 Special

^^SS0Special Zetsume Ougi's :yes: :yes: :cheerlie: :beer: :cheerlie: :beer: :yes: :yes:
Ya'll should also peep my thread about the new Samurai Spirits Sen around here sumwhere..

Can't be bothered to buy a Neo-Geo to be honest, don't feel it's worth the money.

I got a powerful pc running the emulator perfectly, and it's plugged up to my tv and I have two original Neo-Geo arcade sticks to play with, so.....

Got a neo-geo pocket though haha.

Haven't played Accent Core yet, gonna pick it up in Thailand next month.

Just heard that Samurai Shodown, King Of Fighters, Fatal Fury etc compilations are coming to Wii, so I'm definately getting those arcade sticks. PC with Emu is one thing, but it's so much easier just to stick my Wii on.

Still picking up SF3: 3rd Strike, Garou and Last Blade 2 for the Dreamcast though.

FamicoM - Which Samurai Spirits/Shodowns do you like?

I thought the original was great and 2 was even better. I didn't like 3 really and 4 was good but something didn't seem right (can't quite put my finger on it), but really liked Samurai Shodown V: Special aka Samurai Spirits Zero: Special (only played the special version). Never played VI (really want to though), 64 or Warriors Rage.

Wanna play them all now, but I'm at work.

11-25-2007, 12:46 PM
I've played all the KOF series up to '99, and '98 has always been my favourite. I've played later ones a couple of times but not enough to form a proper opinion.

My question is to anyone who's played 2000 onwards a fair bit, what are your impressions of each?

What's the best of 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 & XI?

I heard XI is the best since '98, I wonder if it (or even XII) will ever come to Wii.....

11-25-2007, 01:55 PM
Cool, I'd heard 2001 was better than 2002 & 2003. I wanted another one as well as 98, but wasn't sure which to get.

What about Real Bout Fatal Fury Special & RB2: The Newcomers? Opinion seems to be divided as to which is best. Have you played them both?

Oh yeah, is NeoGeo Battle Coliseum as disappointing as I've heard it is?

11-26-2007, 09:41 AM
Ooh, my Dreamcast collection now reads:

Garou: Mark Of The Wolves (Jap)
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
Capcom vs SNK (Jap)
Capcom vs SNK 2 (Jap)
Marvel vs Capcom 2
King Of Fighters '98 (Jap)
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Last Blade 2 (Jap)
Street Fighter III: Double Impact (Jap)
Vampire Chronicles (Jap)

And I've got two of the Dreamcast's lovely arcade sticks.

If they bring out Fatal Fury Battle Archives 2 & Samurai Shodown Collection (already confirmed) on the Wii, I'll have pretty much everything I could want!

11-29-2007, 03:32 AM
If Fatal Fury Battle Archives 2 comes to Wii, then I'll have Real Bout Special & Real Bout 2, so I can decide for myself!

Dunno about Battle Coliseum. Heard it was a shamefull cash in (even for SNK). Nothing new, just a selection of characters from the other games using their same sprites etc, but with worse animation and some niggling bugs. Shame.

11-29-2007, 10:58 AM

I've never heard of it, im gonna have to look into it.

04-16-2009, 09:03 AM
^^So blazblue and battle fantasia are both from the same makers?

They do appear to be styllisticly similar.

04-16-2009, 10:32 AM
ya, Arc Sys.

04-16-2009, 10:35 AM
I didn't knew that about Battle Fantasia but yes all 3 of them by the same developers staff Arc System Works

Mr. X
04-16-2009, 05:12 PM
Battle Fantasia already came stateside (360 only). I want to play it but don't have a 360 or want to import a game I might not like or comprehend.

Sengouko Basara X is the second photo, based on Capcom's Devil Kings seires (big in Japan, not so much here). Developed mostly by Aksys too.

Blazblue is developed by the same guy who did Guilty Gear series. Aksys lost their rights to GG franchise to Sega somewhere along the way and he developed BB to replace it, hoping to have the same success.

04-16-2009, 07:57 PM
yo battle fantasia is ASS fam..im sorry to say but i cant deny lol..NOT the standard ARC quality you can blindly expect from these cats normaly (GGXX, BB, HNK)
blazblue is crazy tho..good follow up on GGXX although it takes some getting used to..
